Update available from 14th June 10:30pm UTC

It is time to head to the coast and Sim Springs! Keep reading to find out what is happening in the latest Sims Freeplay update

Sorry I haven’t created all my videos yet, we got this update information at very short notice and I haven’t had time to create all my usual content but I will be uploading the rest when it is ready

SIM SPRINGS

A brand new event will be available from the start of this update (there is no rush to begin it, it will be available when you are ready) It is perfect for those who have completed everything already in the game and want some new house lots! Sim Springs is a new location which can be accessed from the bus stop by the science lab in Simtown once you are at level 20 or above:

Sim Springs contains neighbourhoods, the first neighbourhood is called Sandy Suburbs (future updates will contain new neighbourhoods) There are four houses for you to fix up in Sandy Suburbs; Tumbleweed Terrace, Dusty Dwelling, Arid Apartments and Wellspring Library. The aim is to complete daily tasks to do up these lots, one at a time:

3 of the lots are house lots and the final is a community lot which can still be customised like a normal house lot but your sims cannot live in them. You will also be able to place any item in the living room section of buy mode in the community lot for free!

The lots need to be renovated in the order listed above, you cannot do up more than one at a time and the next won’t unlock until the previous one has been completed. The time limit to complete a house is 10 days with tasks to complete each day in Sim Springs, similar to Downtown Developer Events if you don’t complete in the time limit you will have to pay to be able to move on but there are prizes if you do manage to complete in time, the grand prize contains a house template that can be placed in Sim Springs or Simtown.

Between each house lot you can take a break for 7 days before the 10 day timer begins or you can start straight away.

Once all 4 houses are complete you can complete neighbourhood tasks to improve the neighbourhood ranking and change the look of Sandy Suburb with visual upgrades such as trees and roads.

Check out my Guide to Sim Springs: Sandy Suburbs post here (I haven’t completed it all yet as it is huge!)

  1. Hello EA community ,, it is a really very good game playing ,,,I had been playing this since it started I mean when I had a samsung keypad Mobile from that day I love sims …
    But I want to request something about the game ,, please increase more sims more than 42 ,,I knot we can have more than that by doing baby glitch but it hangs a little.. please do it naturally …next is , just like sims 4 ,, if we could build house lots like whatever we wanted to build it would be really great … I mean we can’t use any decoration diagonally … And we can’t even create the roofs as we like …so I wanted some improvement…
    Thank you so much ❤️ much love for sims and EA family ❤️❤️❤️
