What else?

  • The makers have made a few quality of life improvements to the game to make building easier:
    • Multistory Object Functionality– tall objects can now be placed inside, you can place items such as trees, plants, double height pillars and even a basketball court in mezzanines or on balconies: 
    • Home Store Category Visibility– for newer players who haven’t unlocked all the categories in buy mode yet you will now see some of these categories but they will be locked (greyed out) with instructions how to unlock them. To start you will see categories such as Patios, Infants and Toddlers but they are working on showing more in future updates: 
    • Wall Lamp Placement– this is my favourite change! Before you could only place a wall lamp on a square and you were unable to use that square on the floor for anything but now wall lamps now have the same placement functionality as paintings so you will be able to place items in front of them:

Check out my video on these improvements here

  • You will also be able to get double rewards from the paperboy between the 31st March- 6th April and 14th- 18th April:

The Sims Mobile- Haunted Halloween 2020 Update

Presented by EA GameChangers


As well as The Sims Mobile Haunted Halloween Update containing loads of new Halloween themed events it also makes a major change to the action feature!

Before the update when your sims completed actions a green tick would appear after 5 seconds, once clicked you would receive your reward for completing that action, in this latest update you will receive the reward as soon as you start the action and the green tick won’t appear so you can create some amazing screenshots without it being in the way!

As there isn’t the 5 second timer anymore your sims will continue that actions animation until you click to complete another action, so you can stay on it for as long or as short a time as you like allowing you to complete events quicker.

This is a permanent change which works for all events including Sweet Treat Showdowns, Eco Workshop and Treasure Hunts as well as Wumples and other quests.

The only actions that haven’t been changed are risky actions, you will still see the green tick on these for now.

It is quite confusing to explain in a post so check out my video here to see how this works:

What else is new?

Fright Night Treasure Hunt– complete to unlock Halloween themed items from 26th October for 11 days, check out my Treasure Hunt post for more information on how to complete this type of event

Treatsylvania Haunt Sweet Treat Showdown rerun- this Halloween themed event will be returning on 12th November for 11 days, check out my post here

There will also be two more Wumples Wishlist Quests starting on 29th October and 7th November, I will create posts on these when they begin:
