Sim Springs Neighborhood 3
During our FreePlayFest 11th Birthday [https://twitter.com/TheSimsFreePlay/status/1603630015996129280] celebrations last year and the January edition of the ‘Behind The Sims’ Community Stream[https://www.twitch.tv/videos/1724080257?t=00h12m25s], we revealed the third Sim Springs neighborhood was in development! Now, Berry Boulevard, the third extension in the desert town is now open.
Complete daily tasks to help Johnny Zest bring the tumbleweed town back to life and revitalize it into a stunning oasis. This new area seamlessly connects to the two existing neighborhoods and has a few new features you should know about.
Increased Player Level
Before you can experience everything that the third neighborhood has to offer, you must complete areas one and two first, and hit Player Level 38.
Conference Center Community Lot
The special Community Lot is called Happy Valley Motel. The giant precinct also functions like a Conference Centre, situated on an exclusive extra-large lot size of 54×36. The multiple zones on the lot feature stylish indoor and outdoor areas that your Sims can use for a relaxing holiday, business events, social gatherings and much more.
We’re excited to announce that we’ve also increased the item level cap from 999 to 2,000 objects that can be placed on a lot! Once you’ve completed Community Lot in Bery Boulevard, the increased item cap will be carried over into Standard and Premium lots in SimTown.
Sim Autonomy Actions
There are lots of daily prizes to redeem as you progress through the 60-day event, but specifically when Berry Boulevard increases in neighborhood rank, you’ll earn Sim autonomy actions as prizes that will apply to all Sims in your game:
- Take a selfie
- Look in the mirror
- Grab a glass of water from a fridge
Increase your town’s happiness by chipping away at Neighborhood Tasks! To earn a fun-filled Amusement Park that animates and glows at sunset, you need to get Berry Boulevard to the Ultimate Rank by completing Neighborhood Tasks once all daily tasks and renovations on all four lots are complete.
We’ve updated the Sim Springs FAQ [https://www.ea.com/games/the-sims/the-sims-freeplay/news/sim-springs-faq] with everything you need to know about Berry Boulevard!
Cultural Inclusion – Base Game Additions!
We love highlighting the wide range of diversity around the world and bringing it to SimTown, so here are even more ways we’re celebrating global cultures for everyone to enjoy:
New Face Type
Yes, you read that correctly! We’re delivering another new face type for the third update in a row! Inspired by the South Asian region, this free addition to ‘Create A Sim’ should help update your Sim’s look to feel more authentically like you.
To highlight Sikh representation for the first time, a traditional turban is now available in multiple color variants in the base game. Tweens, Teenager, Adult and Elderly male and female Sims are all able to wear this headwear.
Asian American and Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islander Heritage Month (AAHNPI)
We asked you on Twitter[https://twitter.com/SimGuruAlana/status/1569137176545468417] last year, what outfits you wanted to see more of that represent AAHNPI culture! To celebrate the heritage month, we’ve curated a free pack of male and female outfits that are inspired by real fashion and player suggestions. Thank you to everyone that sent us their ideas!
Cinco de Mayo
Commemorate Mexican culture and heritage by hanging traditional animal artworks in your home! The designs are inspired by Otomi folk art, a local technique used to depict cave paintings in a stylized, almost symmetric form.
You’ll also enjoy a new SimChase Season 58: Mariachi Madness, filled with new color variants of prizes seen before in Season 38: Mariachi Mayhem. Rewards include an in-ground pool with mosaic tiles, chimenea, water fountain, outdoor gazebo and dancefloor, Mariachi outfits and authentic décor. Your Sims will feel as if they’re truly in the heart of Mexico in SimTown!
World Environment Day
To continue encouraging worldwide awareness and action to protect our environment, our team have created a World Globe that can live in your Sim’s home! The object can sit on any surface or floor and can be admired by Tweens (Child), Teens, Adults, and Senior Sims!
Check out the dates below to find out when the exclusive free packs will be available for redemption from the ‘Specials’ tab in the Online Store!
Industrial Loft Events
‘Home Sweet Home’ Live Event
A warehouse apartment is only as good as the decor and furniture that it’s styled with! Craft resources throughout the 13-day event to unlock milestone prizes that are full of character and showcase the best of functional industrial loft living.
The large grand prize lot features expansive three-story windows and high ceilings, multi-level balconcies with outdoor lounge areas, wide open living spaces and mezzanines, plus a camper van sitting on the parking lot outside! The designer wall art, colectibles and souvenirs around the home add a touch of familiarity and warmth amongst the exposed structural elements, mixed metals and textured furniture.
Influence Island Season 36
Curate a contemporary bedroom with modern industrial furniture! Floating king-sized beds and matching modular bedside tables, hanging egg chair and metal pendant lighting are just some of the loft rewards available, by convincing Sims to join your clan in the latest season of Influence Island.
The grand prize includes new animations for Adult and Senior Sims:
- Awkward Kiss
- Gossip (Teen Sims are currently already able to do this action)
