Here’s all the info from the official blog

Sul Sul,

It’s time to bring radical designs that created the aesthetic of the 1980s to SimTown! The creation of Memphis Design was born out of Italy in the 1960s and became a cultural movement in the 80s that blended kitsch, art deco with pop art – a new style filled with experimentation that used abstract patterns, squiggles and shapes on top of other shapes. Give your home a quirky side and embrace the trend of bold colors, fabrics and patterns in your Sim’s homes. Mix and match the unique living room, bedroom and kitchen rewards from our latest Live Event, Influence Island and SimChase events. All details are below!

We can’t wait to see your creations on Twitter and Instagram, tag us and use #TheSimsFreePlay!

Base Game Improvements

Customizable Eyelashes – Create A Sim

Eyelashes can really change your whole look! As part of the development that we’re continuing to invest in improving the appearance of our Sims, we’ve now made eyelashes customizable! 

Your preteen, teenager, adult and senior Sims are now able to select from two styles that range from natural to darker (or even remove them completely) to suit any style. Enjoy choosing out of the four color options and come in short and medium lengths.

Select the new ‘Eyelash’ category in the Create A Sim screen and the camera will zoom right up close to your Sims face to help with your decision making. 

New User Interface

For the first time since The Sims FreePlay released in 2011, we’ve refreshed our HUD user interface with a new layout that helps separate quests from limited time live events, so you can spend more time doing the things you love with your Sims. 

  • New Active Tasks Icon
    • Separating out base game content like professions, hobbies, quests plus Sim Springs, MidTown Café, and Downtown Developer makes it easier to level up your town!
  • New Live Events Icon
    • Our calendar of limited-time live events and related live event tasks are now sorted together in this menu, so you’ll always know how to progress and what’s coming up next! This includes pregnancy, SimChase and Influence Island events.
  • Sim Tracker 
    • The folder has now moved to a more suitable spot next to your Sim Needs bar.
  • Player Level Icon
    • Each time you level up, you’ll see new helpful details of the quests and features that are now available to you!

Women’s History Month

Happy International Women’s Day, Simmers! The world of The Sims has always encouraged people to play with life equally —regardless of gender, race, religion, sexuality, or culture. This IWD, we want to thank our community of female identifying players from the past and present; for sharing your stories, pushing for fairness in your own lives; and making the Sims FreePlay community the greatest in and out of the game.

Pregnancy Animations Refresh

In the spirit of equality and highlighting the incredible journey of pregnancy, we’ve looked at our existing animations for adult Sims and added a selection of interactions [that don’t have texture clipping issues] to expand the options that pregnant Sims in the second and third trimester. While we still have work to do in making pregnant Sims completely equal, they can now enjoy:

  • Waiting for a friend, casual chat, or absorbing chat when sitting on a sofa 
  • Making Parp Tarts, fancy toast or plain toast when using a toaster
  • Petting and hugging any breed of cat
  • Shaking hands, praise and play with large dogs
  • Teach to beg, pet and give scratches to small dogs
