I didn’t receive an early access build for the Shabby Chic update as The Sims Freeplay team are hard at work creating something big for the following update that needs all hands on deck!

  1. I’m excited to see what the next update is if it needed all hands on deck. Thank u for the summary!

  2. Hey!
    So, I only got the update today (the 4th) and here’s what I’ve noticed so far:
    – Architect homes have disappeared for me
    – The weekly tasks and the Simtown market event were both reset while I was maybe 1/3 of the way through both. I don’t think that happened before on previous updates. I think they usually time it to happen in between.
    – Interactions between Sims and with Sim-eating plants (maybe other types?) have a new option that completes the action right away. You can see it before selecting the action where an icon resembling this [⭲] alternates with the original one. Once the action is selected, it flickers between the [⭲] icon and “Free”, both on a blue background.
    – I think the only option I previously had for a toaster was “Cooking” if I’m not mistaken… In any case, there are now my options for a toaster; “Plain Toast”, “Fancy Toast”, “Parp Tarts” and “Make avocado toast” but the latter only seems to appear for some Sims 🤔🤷‍♂️

    • -Architect homes should be back by now, they were unavailable for a few days but did return
      -That is strange, I am not sure what happened there as they don’t usually reset after updating!
      -This is available on many short actions, it allows you to skip without costing LP. I have added this information to the post.
      -Oh I hadn’t noticed that! I wonder what else they have secretly added!

  3. I figured it out! “Make avocado toast” only appears to some Sims because it seems to be linked to their life dreams. It only shows up for those with Sporty life dreams 😉

  4. whats the little blue fast forward button about? if you click on it it speeds up the action but only shows up on somethings?? do you know anything about it?

  5. I hope they make the vanity a place-able-on item, it can be more elegant if only we can place the table-top combs, and the little table-top mirror on the two empty spots of it.

  6. Hello! I was wondering what “something big” meant. Not in a detailed way, but is the “something big” that was mentioned is currently still a secret and is not in this page? thank you!

  7. Okay I guess I’m right about the sim springs update then, seeing as though my comment wasn’t approved lol

  8. Hey, I noticed that I already had some items of the shabby chi update in an other set of color but I don’t remember from which update it comes from ? did you notice that ?

  9. When it states that you have 2 days left for cafe grande live event (I have 4 currently), are those days for collecting remaining items and you stop producing items via the stations? Or do you still get to produce the items in stations in the remaining 2 days but have extra day or so to collect any remaining items as the event is over?
    Hope that makes sense haha
    Thanks

    • You won’t be able to make any more arts and craft items or constructor coins during these two days, they are just for purchasing any packs you can and didn’t purchase during the event.
