  1. I wish they’d would stop making more Sim chase seasons. I really like the prizes, but it is so over expensive. They definitely need to make it cheaper and the task take less time. P.S. I love your blog

  2. I was wondering if your paperboy has stopped giving out multiple rewards in one sitting?

    My paperboy used to let me watch eight videos in a row, and I was able to receive eight prizes. Several months ago, he stopped doing that, and now I’m only able to get one video/prize, unless I keep changing locations, and then he might show up and let me get one more prize.

    I wrote support, who told me to contact the people responsible for the ads, and they emailed me to say they can’t do anything, either.

  3. What happenes if you’ve already completed a live event quest? Do you get another one to complete or does is just appear in your game? I finished the Daring Do’s the last time we got so what happens now?

    • Events and quests appear on certain dates so if you have already completed one you will need to wait for them to add another one to be able to complete that, the dates events and quests start are all available in my update posts so you can see when the next one is coming up.

  4. For the pregnancy event, I finished all the tasks and got the baby bonus but didn’t receive a pop up saying that I unlocked the the limited time items. Where should I look to see if I can buy the baby crib and maternity items? I don’t see them in the home store or the nursery store in sim town. Do the items unlock once the event ends?

    • Did you start the pregnancy event in the time limit to unlock these items? If this was your first time completing the pregnancy event (completing it while completing the a bump-y ride quest) then you won’t unlock these prizes as that quest has to be completed first.
