  1. Ugh I’m so upset about the teen hair being a simchase thing when it’s so glitchy! I wasted time and SPs and was winning on S3 only for it to freeze right before I got the second to last prize (the one with the fire pits that I really wanted). And FM hasn’t responded in a way that is satisfactory.

    • All I have heard is that they have added 50SP compensation for those who had issues on season 3, if you didn’t get this I would suggest you contact them again. My biggest problem is they didn’t even fix the issue before introducing two new ones so they probably won’t work either!

  2. I did not get the live family event that started today. I know of 2 other people who also didn’t get it and 1 person that did. Is there a reason we all didn’t get it?

  3. What a boring update.
    Some of the items in the live event are cute (love the single beds! we need more of those) but as per not loving the prices! Yet more of the impossible and broken Simchase and stupid pregnancy events. Why can’t they just put this stuff in the maternity store? Seems to me that once you’ve brought everything maternity tokens are about as useful as XP! Also how many times are we going to repeat the hair events when there are some things that have never repeated?

    Any one else think the “View locked age groups” thing for CAS is super useless?
    (Also I hate that this event has broken the display for my game, all the fonts and dialogue boxes are super tiny which is annoying!)

  4. I was gone for a week or so and updated my game today, so I was suprised my ‘architect homes’ tab was gone? Is that just me or?
    Btw, not so long ago I wrote an email about some issues to the makers, used the address they have listed in Google play, and it never got delivered. So, I don’t even know how to contact them anymore.

  5. I actually really liked the old community events. It felt like you were working with others to obtain prizes instead of just by yourself. Wished they’d bring them back.

  6. Hi,

    Thanks for another great update summary! I really appreciate the effort you put in for the community.

    Firemonkeys haven’t even bothered to update the official site for the past two updates. Last news update on their site was the SimChase FAQ in late April:

    The only official new of late news seems to be those sometimes cryptic teaser posts on their FB and other social media.

    • You aren’t is the answer, they make these live events impossible so you buy laura craft to help you complete them, personally I just wait for the event to return and then I can complete it on the second go.

    • Set a timer – it what’s I did in the latest designer backyard event and I won for the first time.

      I’d set a 2.5hr timer, then set the sims to work overnight for 8.5h while I slept, and do it all over again the next day. I DID use about 50 SP though to get some of the prizes though simply because life happened and couldn’t go in, but by the end of it all, I had about 20 hours left before the deadline.

      Personally, I really like the live events – I play to pass the time when I’m commuting or in breaks, so I’m never going to have more than 600K or so simileons so these events are my only chance (along with seasonal quests) to get fun, fancy houses.

      And honestly, the designs are better than anything I’d put together so it’s worth it to work a little hard for it for just over a week.

      P.S. Really great blog – I don’t know how I would have played / enjoyed the game without the tips from here 🙂

  7. I really like that Sims free play gives us new maternity clothes and stuff but can’t they just make it into a live event like for example the backyard Beautification event?? . I think that’ll will be for everyone in my opinion, cuz it’s really hard to complete this.
