My Wishes for The Sims Freeplay in 2020

In this post I share with you my wishes for The Sims Freeplay in 2020, these are either things I would like to see added to the game or changed for a better gaming experience, (if you would rather watch my video version of this you can find it here) these are in no particular order:

Reduce Prices

Everything has got so expensive recently! When was the last time we could buy a live event prize for less than S10,000? We could when they were first added (French Romance Live Event) but recently the prices have skyrocketed! We do get one for free but that doesn’t mean we should then have to spend silly amounts to get another.

I know their logic behind this is if they bump up the prices then we will have to buy simoleons with real money- the problem is, it doesn’t work as it angers most players so we end up spending less money or even nothing on the game.

 

More Clutter Items

If you’ve watched some of my house tour videos on YouTube you know I love those kinds of items, they make a house look like a home- like someone actually lives there. They have started adding these types of items in live events which is great but we need more and they need to be available for everyone without completing events or quests and back to my first wish- they need to be affordable.

 

 

Subcategories in Categories

It is great that we have had loads of new events with lots of prizes but it has caused buy mode to become a bit of a mess! I spend more time scrolling through the catalogue rather than building. If we had subcategories, for example, in living room section we could have sofa, bookcases and coffee table tabs, we could easily find the item we wanted to use. Decorations is by far the worst tab, I’m not sure where every item would fit so we would probably need a miscellaneous tab too but we could have subcategories like paintings, mirrors, plants and table decorations to make building more enjoyable- spending 5 minutes scrolling to the end of a section to find a certain item really takes the fun out of it!

 

New Easier Events

I am so over live events, you know I have never really liked them, I put up with them because most of the prizes are gorgeous but I can never complete them on time! I used to set timers every 2 hours 30 minutes even when I slept but I gave up with that and stick to daytime now- it is meant to be a game after all, it is not much fun if you lose sleep over it! Even if they just reduced the amount of glassware needed or give us another glassware station that would really help.

As a long time player it is so boring having the same types of events constantly repeating. It may be easy for the developers to program live events and the dreaded SimChase but they aren’t interesting for the players to complete- collecting arts and craft items for 10 days straight every update and still not completing in time is really disheartening, no wonder lots of people have stopped playing!

We need new events and quests but they need to make them possible to complete in time- the makers should be testing these events themselves before they release them to make sure they are doable and then they would see that it’s impossible to complete events that require us to have more than 24 hours in a day!

When I saw the downtown developer event I was really excited to see something different but then I started it and my heart sank because again it is impossible! The glitches really don’t help but even without them they seem to have forgotten the golden rule again- there are only 24 hours in a day Firemonkeys!!

They just want us to buy social points to complete these and in my opinion that is wrong- for starters it’s wrong that we now have to skip so much with SP, probably because it is so easy to make LP by completing the cooking hobby but it’s harder to make SP so people are more likely to buy them. I have no problem with players spending money on the game, of course they need to make money and I buy items myself from the online store but most players spend money when they are enjoying the game- not when they are feeling pressured to do so. Money grabs don’t work- you don’t get players to spend money by making everything impossible to complete, it drives them away.

I think we need to go back to good old fashion quests, not the ones where you have to wait between days though like back to the wall!

 

Sell Multiples Button

We currently can sell one item at a time but it would save a lot of time if we could ‘sell all’ or select the amount we want to sell in case we wanted to keep a few and sell the rest.

 

Different Shaped Rooms

We can add door frames already to make it looks like it’s one room but it would be better if we could just build any shaped room. This seems to be one feature The Sims Mobile has already but strangely lacking from Freeplay.

 

 

Better Placing Ability

I had no idea what to call this but I would like to be able to place items where I want and this isn’t always possible, some items can’t be placed on a wall if there is something on the floor in front of that wall and vice versa. They have improved this so we can now have doors next to walls but I think there is still a way to go, we still can’t place most items on walls directly next to doors but we can place the same item on top of some pictures which doesn’t make a lot of sense!

 

Remove SimChase

I couldn’t create a wishlist without this, SimChase is the worst addition to the game ever in my opinion. I’ve given the makers feedback about this but they just don’t seem to care. The fact that you are completing against a computer is the biggest issue for me, if we were playing against another player who also sleeps and has a life outside of the game it would be less one sided, the hours also don’t always add up (over 24 hours again!) and the paying tasks are too expensive.

Unfortunately the makers aren’t listening, they won’t even make significant changes to it so they need to just get rid of it. I don’t even bother trying to complete them, I know I won’t be able to so what is the point? I’m not the only one who feels this way, we would rather not complete something than waste money on something that they have purposely made impossible so how exactly does this method make them money?

 

I could probably go on forever with this list but I think I will stop there! My biggest hope is that they will start listening to us again, they used to be so good at changing things based on our feedback but it is like they don’t care anymore, since The Sims Mobile has come along it is like they have got themselves a shiny new toy and Freeplay has been left to gather dust, forgotten about. As long as they are taking our money they don’t care what we think and if they keep going like this they won’t be here in 2021.

What are your wishes for The Sims Freeplay this year?

The table below shows you everything you can grow on a garden patch. It includes the levels you unlock the seeds at, how much they cost from the garden patch or from the supermarket (you get a discount on most items if you buy from the supermarket) as well as how many simoleons and XP you earn from growing that item.

Let me know if the levels need updating, I unlocked them all a long time ago!

*Plant at your own risk! Some seeds you can plant on the garden patch have a green monster triangle symbol on them, this means that they could turn into a sim eating plant instead of the plant. If this happens you will not earn the simoleons or XP you would have got if it didn’t turn into a sim eating plant and you will have to negotiate with it for 3 minutes before you can use the patch again. Although you can usually watch an advert now to get a reward rather than negotiating with it, but it isn’t the full amount and you don’t always get this option.

Baking Table coming soon!
