      • For some reason, I can’t start the Downtown Developer Site 3 erm… development. It says: “requirements: current downtown development complete”, but to my knowledge I finished site 2. I was way too late to win the prize though. Nothing seems to be building or have completed building. There was some weird notification a while back about some Downtown event, but nothing happened… Is this a glitch? I’ve been all around Downtown and can find nothing to click on that needs completing. Not that I care about this building events anyway, but it’s a little irritating nonetheless.

      • Some players are unable to start the Downtown Developer 3 Event as it says they are currently completing another one, the makers are aware of this issue and are working on a fix (but don’t panic you don’t have to complete this event straight away anyway!)

      • Did anyone else experience a glitch with yesterday’s episode of Simchase? I tried to do the task with 22 sims to find clues on trees but the game would only allow me to use 15 sims at a time forcing me to waste time/SP doing the task twice. I made 15 sims do it but when I tried to make the 16th sim do it the game said “you already have enough sims doing this”. Previous simchases allowed me to use the full number of sims required all at one time. I hope future episodes aren’t affected otherwise it will cost a ridiculous amount of SP to complete.

  1. This update looks like so much fun! but I just have one question, why is this update’s so short? usually an update stays up to 2 months, but this one ends at 4th november… so it’s only one month. How come?

      • Hey, are you aware that there is an issue with how many Sims can complete a task during the current Simchase Season? There was a task on Day 1 or Day that 15 Sims needed to do and since that task finished, the game tells me every time I need to do a task with 30 or 26 Sims that I have “already enough Sims performing that task” and won’t let me set more than 15 Sims on it. Really annoying as I have to do that task over two rounds then. Wonder if anyone else has had that issue…

  2. Thanks for this update info! Care Bears seem to be a bit of an odd theme to pair with Halloween but I’m not completely as it’s been a long time since new Halloween content. It’s also great to get a bit more spooky furniture for a haunted house and some of the Care Bears furniture/fixtures will look good on a gingerbread house lot too.

    I hoping for a return of the Fine Dining Live Event. I need those ice sculptures and blue/gold chairs for my ice palace lot! Hopefully they will bring it back soonish. I was on a vacation the first time they held it so didn’t get very far with it at all.

    • I have no lots left to build on, so many houses I won just sitting there with no lots. I wish they could add a few even 5 would help so much.

      • I agree! They should have removed the downtown High School building & the worthless grocery store to make room for the high school building prize & the market. I was able to create a downstairs living space in the basement for the market & cafe so those are not a total waste. The gallery should also have been put somewhere else. I’m tired of those prizes having to be built on house lots. I have one open house lot remaining. I haven’t even built the new high school & this Care Bare Community Center is not appealing to me.

  3. Oohh I luv this update. Care Bears are sooo cuteee.
    But I also wish so much TSF team will someday sort out the home sections. It takes a long time to scroll and scroll and scroll just to find an item, especially the decorations section. Would you please help give them the suggestion? Thank you so much 🙏🏻😊

  4. I realize you can’t share WHAT will be coming out in November yet, but are you allowed to tell us WHEN you will be able to share? I’d love to know when we will have more info! Love the game and I’m impatient haha

  5. Did they fix the problem with the make up artist hobby not giving any rewards? The bug was introduced in the School’s Out update and players who opened tickets were told that they the fix will be in the update, which is this one.

  6. All previous developments are complete, however when I click on development site 3, its not giving me the option to demolish and instead has an open circle, with “current downtown development complete). Why wont it let me demolish?

    • Some players are unable to start the Downtown Developer 3 Event as it says they are currently completing another one, the makers are aware of this issue and are working on a fix (but don’t panic you don’t have to complete this event straight away anyway!)

      • Sorry, can’t reply to your response on my post, so I’ll do it here: Thank you for the info! I’m not a great fan of those developer quests anyway, as they take ages…

  7. I can’t start the 3rd development event. It has an exclamation mark and has no check in the circle which says current development event.

    • Some players are unable to start the Downtown Developer 3 Event as it says they are currently completing another one, the makers are aware of this issue and are working on a fix (but don’t panic you don’t have to complete this event straight away anyway!)

  8. When are they going to give us more lots! I feel like I couldn’t be the only one, I’m constantly weighing up which houses to keep/discard because I want to build new ones, wish they’d give us a few more! Would love for the kindergarden/day care update to come back also ❤

  9. I cant build the new downtown tower 😦 i’ve already built all towers but the requirement say that i need to complete the current downtown developer but i’ve already finished that! Can u help me? What should i do 😢😢

  10. Sim chase season 20- and challenges requiring 20 or 22 Sims but it won’t let me use more then 15 sims to perform any required actions despite more sims being available to use

  11. I’m currently doing the Sim Chase challenge. However, on the task when it needs more than 11 sims to complete, the maximum that I can use is 11 sims, then it says that I have used the maximum sims needed for the tasks. So to complete the task, I have to do it in 2 lots, which means it takes longer to complete.
    So far, I have only come across this in the last 2 days and I’m worried that this may cost me the grand prize if I need to complete tasks in 2 lots for the rest of the challenge.
    How do I fix this? I have never come across this problem in other Sim Chase before.

  12. I’ve noticed with the new Sim Chase that it won’t let you use all the required sims for a challenge – for example if you need 26 sims to finish a challenge you have a limit of 20 which means you need to do the challenge twice now. Really frustrating and another way they are trying to cheat us to spend money or SP.
    I love your blog by the way it is super helpful!

  13. Scare Bears has numerous problems. So far any tasks that involves a bunch of Sims will only allow 5 (max) to work on it. Only 5 Sims (out of 8, I think) could do the puzzle yesterday. Tonight on 5 Sims (out of 10) can do the riddle book. I filed a complaint with firemonkey. It’s a mess and I really want those Halloween items!

  14. Has anyone else been having issues during the Sim Chases with the game telling them “you have enough sims performing that action” when you only have 15 out of the 20 or so needed doing that action?

  15. In the Sim Chase season 20, some of the tasks requires x number of sims, but I am limited to x amount of sims performing the tasks! Ex. I need 26 sims to solve Riddle books, but I am only allowed 15 sims to do it simultaneously. I get a response that «you have enough sims performing this action». Which means it takes double the time to finish. Usually you are informed in the text for the task when there is a limit like this, but not now. So I am wondering if it’s a glitch..? Do you have the same limit? Is it just to make us use SP to finish sooner?

  16. Love your blog and all the fab posts and guides 🥰
    Are you able to share the November updates yet? It’s now 27th so not long to go and I’m curious. Or will they appear from 1st and not before?
    Thanks for all you do! 😊
