Base Game Improvements

Daily ‘Check-In’ Rewards Play The Sims FreePlay every day and you’ll be rewarded for simply playing the game! We’ve created a daily rewards system so if you play daily, you’ll earn prizes! Maintain your play streak to earn larger rewards. Or, if you’d rather play at your own pace, earn ‘Cumulative Rewards’ by playing a set number of days at any time! The more you play the more you’ll earn.

Daily rewards refresh daily at 6PM your local time. Don’t worry if you forget to claim your prizes the last time you logged in, they’ll be waiting there for you the next time you play. Prizes include premium currency, Simoleons, VIP points, décor, outfits and more!

Click on your Sim’s mailbox on their home lot to open the new screen – click on the mailbox icon again to claim everything from both the 'Daily Rewards and Check-In Rewards' tabs automatically.

Inventory Filtering We know so many of you have hundreds of items in your Sim’s inventory from accumulating almost 10 years of rewards from our events, quests, hobbies and more! We are so excited to reveal our newly designed inventory filtering system to help you find your décor and Home Store items much quicker when redesigning, renovating and remodeling, so you can spend less time scrolling through dozens of categories trying to find that ONE thing!

In the Home Store, click on the new ‘filtering’ icon with three lines to choose your filter settings and find what you want faster! Try it out now!

Looks like they didn't fix the bug with invalid timers for inspired sims.

The tasks I tried so far are okay now. Which tasks didn’t change for you? Possibly they are not fixed for all games?

Cupcakes? What are the cupcakes that are one of the new rewards for playing everyday? I think they start around day 20? I searched this site and only saw them listed under Sims mobile, not Freeplay. Is this new?

I would guess those are the same cupcakes as the ones you can buy for 5 LP to inspire a sim for a whole day, just like the cake slices.

The „Open Cottage Door“ from the Wizard‘s Cottage and the „Cubicle Door“ from the Wedding Lot are back in inventory. I think we could only get more of them, if we built the lots several times. Now we can buy them in build mode for Simoleons.

Like copperwood said, we get those cupcakes for free which always have been in the game. Here are screenshots of them in a former update and now. The button is greyed out if Sims are fully inspired.

We can store 5 of them and if we don‘t use them they are wasted.

I also noticed that they no longer give two candle reloads in 9 seconds per station in the Live Event tutorial. It goes straight to reloading 18 uses for 10SP.

That always came in handy for using them with the coin flower and getting the first 10 coins needed for the rewards. Even if I didn’t get enough coins during the spins, still motivated me to keep reloading to unlock everything.
