Countdown

Here’s all the info from the official blog:  

“Sul Sul! 

Fall is a time of fresh starts, a chance to celebrate the changing of the seasons. Get your home ready for Autumn and boost your curb appeal with gorgeous harvest décor in two SimChase events.

We absolutely love hearing your feedback and suggestions on what you want to see more of in The Sims FreePlay. Your suggestions continue to inspire us and help shape the decisions we make! Earlier in the year, a survey appeared in our game and you voted that glamour and luxury theme were your most desired aesthetic for a future update! Now, your Sims can live the VIP lifestyle they’ve always dreamed of with the breathtaking rewards available in our latest live event and Influence Island!

Base Game Improvements

New Inbox Notifications

In an effort to streamline pop ups and notifications, plus refresh yourself on what your Sims got up to during your last play session, we’ve designed a new inbox system for Sim and SimTown news! The envelope icon is located in the bottom right-hand navigation next to the town map (which now nests the Globe icon/Social button too). You will now be notified when your Sims finish actions, finish a work shift, get a promotion, when construction finishes and more! Your Inbox will also let you know what’s happened in your SimTown while you’ve been away, and also give you the ability to go straight to the location of your Sim or completed construction via the new green map icon!

Active Tasks – Menu Refresh 

Have you ever want to know what live events are coming up next or what you can look forward to, without checking out our blog notes? Well, we’ve refreshed the Active Tasks menu so it’s more like a calendar and easier to navigate! You’ll notice that tasks are now split into two tanbs: Active and Upcoming! 

The ‘Active’ tab shows what is available to start now and what you’re still able to complete within the remaining time available. Check out the Upcoming tab to find a list of all the current update’s Live Events! Events are ordered by the start date, and once they begin it will disappear from ‘upcoming’ and move into ‘active’. When there is less than 24 hours to go until it starts, it turns into a countdown!

Hot Tip: Click the new magnifying glass next to the task to explore the event requirements in more detail. It will open an exploded view so you can have a closer look of the prizes you’re able to earn!

Additional Notes.

  • BASE GAME IMPROVEMENTS
    • Tutorial Levels Refresh (First Time User Experience = FTUE)
      1. This is not player facing information, internal information only. Only new players will see this and have nothing to compare it to. 
      2. Problems:
        • The order of tasks and instructions during the FTUE is not meaningful to players and isn’t effectively teaching them how to play properly
        • Some of the information of the FTUE is repetitive and makes it frustrating for players.
        • There is a lot of reading of small text
      3. Changes:
        • We’ve improved usability, reshuffled goals to be more grouped and related to each other to better teach the game mechanics and made it more fun by showing desirable content earlier and replacing repetitive tasks with other meaningful goals. 
        • The duration hasn’t changed. 
  • Pop Up Notification Removals
    1. This is not player facing information, internal information only. 
    2. We’ve done a ‘clean up’ of how many pop up notifications players receive in their game to improve their experience of FreePlay
    3. Removal example: “The Fresh Fruiternity Live Event ends in 3 days! You will have a chance to use what you have collected, but won’t be able to collect anymore.”
    4. Players will already have logged in at the start of the event, and will continue it with/without the daily alerts counting down the days of the event with sims queuing workstation tasks.
  • Removal of Autoplay Advertisements in Short Actions
    1. This is not player facing information, internal information only. 
    2. Autoplay ads interrupt gameplay and are frustrating for players while they are gardening/cooking/baking.
    3. It has been replaced with opt-in ads instead that will autocomplete the action for the player.
  • Influence Island Event Re-tuning 
    • Problems: 
      1. To improve event participation, completion and enjoyment, we’ve re-tuned the difficulty to make it easier for players to make the non playable characters from Neutral into Clan Mate and get closer to winning.
    • Changes:
      1. No changes to the amount of Rounds
      2. No changes to the amount of Network Credits 
      3. No changes to chocolate and bribes
      4. Easy, medium and hard challenges should be easier to succeed at
      5. First challenge is always guaranteed for all players
