  1. I’m having the same problem. It’s Dec 1st and influence island still hasn’t started. I had the same problem last month because the missing Claus quest never started for me and I never got to participate in that quest what is going on?

  2. Am I the only one that hate Influence Island so much? It’s just a money grabber event.
    By my experience, without paying or using SP you can only get the regular prizes. I really hate random things in most of the game -unless I deliberately choose game with that mechaninc-.
    Last time, I completed the event buy paying 15 SP to do many round from start -it’s cheaper than completing the failed rounds, usually you have to pay crazy amount of SP for that-. Still, used a lot of them. I vowed to myself to play only for the regular prizes. NO MORE.
    Today, I started and use the first three: wasted completely. Not even able to complete the first 6 steps with the new character.

  3. Hi! I don’t have a Driveway houses tab in the house section. I guess I didn’t complete that quest. Will I be able to build these new houses anyway?

      • I did not get the update .and I hear people with kindle has to wait for Dec 3 is that true .if so that not far on for the people who has kindle they are missing out the once a day free gift and going be hind on the event .

      • There was an issue with the update being approved on kindle so this isn’t the makers fault. There isn’t a once a day gift this year, you get them all in one go.

  4. I’m on a Kindle and I think there’s a bit of a delay for Kindle simmers. I guess I’ll give it one more day or so? Because the update has not appear at all yet and it’s almost the 2nd of December now.

  5. Eek! I’m not getting the update either. I’ve tried to update, but it’s not available. I’ve tried traveling about, but no luck. I’m using kindle. Never experienced this type of delay before. I thought I’d add my voice to this also, just because others might still have problems too. Love your blog!

    • Yes it seems like us Kindle users should just expect a tiny delay each time this updates. I think it will almost always update on the 3rd of each month. I notice this happened last month so there might be a pattern. I hope this helps.

  6. Do you happen to know if the Tudor Bedroom Pack and the Tudor Kitchen Set in the item store are all 3-star items? I am considering them but would be annoyed to pay real money only to have the items be 2-star or 1-star. Really, it would be good to know this for all purchasable items/packs in the store, in general. I think the information should be upfront and clear.

    • I asked for you and in the Tudor Bedroom Pack the Walnut 4 Post King, Walnut Tudor Bedside Table and Walnut Makeup Table are all 1 star items and the Oak 4 Post King, Oak Tudor Bedside Table and Oak Makeup Table are all 3 star items.
      In the Tudor Kitchen Set the Beige Tudor Sink, Cream Flecked Drawers, Corner, Sink, Drawers/Cupboard and Corner/Cupboard are all 1 star items. The Brown Double Oven, Oak Tudor Sink, Brown Flecked Drawers, Sink and Corner/Cupboard are all 2 star items and the Ash Tudor Sink, Brown Flecked Corner, Drawers/Cupboard are 3 star items.

  7. Really disappointed that the Christmas trees in influence island aren’t full size. I really wanted different trees.

  8. Hello! Do you know if I can buy the Albion Square House after the Christmas Carole quest? I didn’t make it on time and since the quest ended, I have been checking my Architect Homes choices, but it never showed up there…
    I reaaally loved the Albion Square house, I am going to be so sad if I can’t buy it with simoleons 😦

  9. Hi was wondering if you know if they will make the Tudor Kitchen and bedroom packs available for purchase again ?
