The Sims Mobile- Day and Night Update

Presented by EA GameChangers


The latest Sims Mobile update (coming out 3rd February) is bringing day and night to our sims houses!

Day and Night Cycle

We can now set to always day, always night or day/night cycle in settings

This is just available on home lots for now so places like downtown or parkside won’t change

Lights Are Now Functional

We can now tap on lights to turn them on and off as well as turning on and off all lights from one light. Lights can also be set to automatic so they change with the day/night cycle

Transparent Windows

Transparent windows are now available to make the most of day and night

New Premium House Lot

1 Landgraab Avenue is now available to build in Briny Heights from level 18 for S500,000 with a 7 day wait to build (or build for 1,000 SimCash without having to wait) The cost amount doesn’t change.

The lot is 50×30 (regular lots are only 30×30)

This lot comes with two fountains, one is permanent and cannot be moved but the other can be stored and placed on another house lot if you wanted:

Sweet Treat Showdown Changes

You can now watch adverts using the knife block on the sweet treat bench:

Watching adverts can:

  • Give you extra rewards in your prize basket
  • Give you an extra chance in that round

You can only watch one advert per round but they seem to appear every round

The Sweet Treat Pro Ticket can be purchased with real money during a Sweet Treat Event for an advantage:

  • Comes with access to the Pro Mixer which has ‘better actions’ but only on rounds 1,3,5,7,9,10 (so you can earn more % and tokens than the normal actions)
  • You will get 6 extra sugar cubes for each challenge (so 36 in total)- if you purchase mid challenge you will get an automatic refill
  • Stores up to 6 attempts (so you can complete 6 challenges in a row)- if you purchase mid challenge you will get an automatic refill
  • Get 25 Royal Treat Tokens and 1,200 Sweet Treat Tokens extra

This only lasts for one Sweet Treat Event so if you wanted these perks every time you would have to purchase it each time a new event becomes available. This is a complete money grab in my opinion- just make it easy for all of us instead of making us pay!

I wasn’t really that bothered that we didn’t have day and night cycles to begin with so having a whole update for something so small is a bit of a disappointment!

What are your thoughts on this update?

The Sims Mobile Moves to Firemonkeys

Yesterday it was announced on Twitter that The Sims Mobile will be moving from Maxis (the makers of The Sims 4) to Firemonkeys (the makers of The Sims Freeplay). The statement said:

“To our mobile Simmers, we have some updates on the future of The Sims Mobile. The Maxis studio has made the decision to move development of The Sims Mobile to the Firemonkeys studio. The Firemonkeys have extensive and longstanding experience with The Sims having developed The Sims Freeplay for nearly a decade. Maxis and The Firemonkeys have worked closely to make this transition as smooth as possible and we’re all very excited about the future of The Sims Mobile. We continue to value and appreciate all the passion and enthusiasm you bring into this game! Maxis will continue to invest in The Sims on PC and Console and the Firemonkeys team will continue to expand The Sims universe through The Sims Freeplay and The Sims Mobile.

Moving forward, you will continue to be able to play The Sims Mobile as you do now. Given this transition, content updates will be delayed so please be patient as the Firemonkeys team ramps up and embraces The Sims Mobile.”

 

So what does this mean for both games? Well at the moment we don’t really know, all I know is there aren’t any plans to get rid of The Sims Freeplay right now and updates for The Sims Mobile may be delayed also most of the team who were working on The Sims Mobile are moving to The Sims 4 (as Firemonkeys is based in Australia not the USA)

Personally I’m not sure what to make of this news, I don’t want The Sims Freeplay to die because they are spending all their time on The Sims Mobile however at the same time I think they might be able to save The Sims Mobile because right now it needs a lot of work but we will have to wait and see!

QUEST IS COMPLETE!


Once you complete the quest you can add indoor balconies (mezzanine floors) to any house you want! If you want more information on how to build mezzanine floors give this post a read!


Prize: Mezzanine House

Where can I find it? In the house templates on both standard and premium house lots

Cost: First one is free, after that they cost simoleons

Is it worth it? If you don’t want to build your own mezzanine house but really want indoor balconies then it is worth completing in the time limit. If you would rather build your own mezzanine floors then there is no rush, I personally will be building my own house!

What is the difference between the standard and premium residence? The only difference is the garden, the house is exactly the same on both

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT THIS QUEST

please read before asking

How do I start this discovery quest?
Once you have completed the basement quest you need to wait 24 hours then you can find Bree (the woman in the hard hat) in the park to start this quest

Why can’t I do this discovery quest yet?
You cannot do more than one discovery quest at the same time, if you are currently on another one (the list can be found here) you will not be able to do this one until that one is completed

Can I do discovery quests at the same time as a main quest?
Yes you can

Do I have to do this quest?
If you don’t start the quest you don’t have to do it at all but if you have already started it you need to complete it before you can move on to the next quest

I haven’t started this quest yet, will it still be available when I want to do it?
Yes it will be, you can choose to start it whenever you like

How do I phone a cab to the mezzanine house?
Using a phone

What are the hazards?
The tiles are the hazards

How much does it cost to build a mezzanine?
The cheapest is S4,800 for 2×1

I had all sims leave the mezzanine house but it didn’t complete the goal, why?
Try and have all your sims not doing any action, this sometimes makes the game recognise you have completed that goal

What do I get if I complete this quest in the time limit?
The mezzanine house

What happens if I don’t complete in the time limit, can I still finish this quest?
Yes you have to finish it to unlock the ability to build mezzanines before you can move onto the next quest

I didn’t complete in the time limit, can I restart the quest?
No, you cannot redo quests

Can I still get the prize if I don’t complete in the time limit?
No, the only way to get the limited time prizes is by completing the quest in the time limit

I don’t like this quest! Can I just skip it?
No, you have to complete this quest before you can move onto the next one now that you have started it, if you don’t start it you don’t have to do it

Some times are slightly different on my game, why is this?
Times may vary depending on the star rating of the item you are using, as the higher star rating an item has the quicker you will complete a goal

Some times are really off/ different goals show for me, why is this?
This will be because the quest has been updated recently, I try my best to keep these posts up to date but it is difficult as I cannot redo every quest each time the game is updated. If you notice any changes please let me know so I can update the post
