Base Game Improvements
Limited Time Prize Redemptions
Do you hate just missing out on the grand prizes in Hobby events and Discovery Quests as you pass the deadline? To prevent repeating them again from the beginning, we’ve added a new last chance offer the next time you open your game or check on your progress, so you can decide whether to take the opportunity to add a time extension or redeem the final prize with premium currency instead!

Town Value Rewards
The higher your Town Value is, the more Simoleons you’ll receive in your Daily Allowance. As you construct buildings in SimTown, build houses and purchase new items from the Home Store your Town Value increases. We’ve refreshed the information tab in the top right corner of any ‘Town Value’ screen to make it super clear about your latest rewards as you continue to grow your town! We’ve also added your Sim Count to the information screen and increased the amount of Life Points rewards you earn (1LP to 2LP) as you simply play the game!

New Idle Animations in Create-A-Sim Screen
We’ve added happy resting facial expressions and natural body movement to tween, teenager and adult Sims in the Create A Sim menu! Next time you’re adding a new Sim to your town, check it out and let us know what you think!

Bumping Sims Out of the Way
Have you ever experienced your Sims getting in the way while you’re redecorating in Build Mode? Well, the next time you’re trying to place an item in your Sim’s house lot, Sims will now avoid the tile and move to a vacant tile nearby when an object is moved over them.

-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-

Changes:

New animation in Downtown Developer Events

Bugs

The Drinks Trays are back in inventory.

The Espresso Machines and Milkshake Maker don‘t work.
Most Android players couldn‘t open their games. Hotfix around February 20th
The Smoke Machines are still not working correctly.

I see EA calls the Maternity Pack 25 event a rerun. However it's the one from the last update that EA cancelled due to a glitch. So as no one has yet completed it, I'd call it NEW.

Influence Island and SimChase are scheduled for the same day, but in my game only the SimChase started. Is the schedule still accurate? Maybe Influence Island will just start at a different time?

On January 5th they announced on Twitter:
"Happy New Year, Simmers! Due to a bug in our latest hotfix, the maternity event that was scheduled to start earlier this week, hasn't appeared for most players.
We'll be rerunning it for everyone in our next update! Thanks for bringing it to our attention"


To me it’s not a rerun either and I didn‘t see any posts that players could do this event while Party of the Decade update 🤷‍♀️

Influence Island may start at 9.00 pm UTC; I also expected this for the SimChase and was pretty surprised to get it right after updating. Guess, we have to wait for the other events to see, if the schedule has changed for all of them.


Edit:
Looks like we can‘t rely on the schedule. It shows the SimChase as "Chinese Lunar New Year" 9-day event, but in the game it appeared as "Lunar New Year Spark Up" 7 days.

There appears to be a new animation in Downtown Developer 6. Just started it and did my first collection. Once tapping on the bubble over the Sim’s head, the Sim stabbed his shovel into the ground twice, and a granite shard appeared. The Sim lifted up the shard, and then it was counted. I don’t recall this ever happening before.

Oh no. The hair hobby event started now in my game instead of the 4th. I'm doing Sandy Springs plus Influence Island plus SimChase finishing tomorrow. I was so much looking for a couple days with fewer events.

The mad pace is driving me away from this game.

This got me, too, when I opened the game. Now I wonder if the other events will start early as well :?

The entire schedule for this update is messed up, isn’t it?

Looks like Downtown Developer 6 is not added to Simdex.
