New Project Item & Collections
This week’s project item will have you dancing into the night! Build your very own retro jukebox. Not only is it the coolest looking music skill item around, it will also add 25K to your house value! But wait there’s more! Completing the jukebox will also reward you with an exclusive ‘Parsley's Woohoo Me Tender’ vinyl record, which is the first part of this week’s three-piece collection!
The second part of the collection is the ‘SimPhonic Compact Radio.’ This item can be purchased in the store for simoleons and has that timeless look and feel.
The final part of this week’s collection can be obtained by completing this week’s quest “Ganging Up”.
Gathering these three items will reward you with ‘Slip'n'Slide Skates’ that will double your Sims speed!
In addition to this week’s rockin’ content, here are some new changes we are implementing to better improve your gameplay experience.
Newsletter and Pop-up improvements: Pop-ups advertising an item will no longer be shown to players who currently own the item.
Placing two unfinished rooms ‘snags’ the game: We have fixed an issue whereby if a player buy two rooms (of any size) and places them together the game will crash.
Visiting friends crashes the game: We have fixed an issue whereby the game would crash if a player picked up a collectible and then quickly tried to visit a friend’s house.
Game crashing when in build mode: We have fixed an issue whereby the game frequently crashes when a User is within shop/build mode.
Friend gifting: You can now pre-select a list of up to 50 friends who you wish to ask for gifts, instead of going through your friends list alphabetically.
That’s it for this week folks; we hope you enjoy this Game Update. Please continue providing your feedback, comments and suggestions! We want to hear from you!
