Good game

This is a really good game, and I know it’s not as good as the sims 4 but it is great for a free game. I love that they’ve added L shaped rooms now. But. I think in the build and buy mode you should have a thing where you can sell multiple objects in your inventory. I have loads of items which are really expensive when I sell them but it’s so annoying to have to sell it all individually especially when I want to clear out my inventory a bit and it takes foreverrrrr. So that would be a good feature. I think we should be able to make T shaped rooms as well as L shaped ones though. It would make the game a lot better and easier to have more than two shaped rooms. Ideas for the future, I’m not expecting to have them next month lol. Also I think that it’s so annoying that the prizes for simchase, influence island and live events are so expensive and live events are impossible unless you collect every bonus and only do the 2.5 hour option. Especially with the glass. I worked it out and you just can’t do it. Make them a bit less challenging or give us more craft stations. We should have child sims as well as preteens and glasses, and sleepwear should be available from the beginning, and not have to buy and unlock them. It’s a basic need. As well as longer hairstyles for females because it’s stupid to assume that everyone has less than shoulder length hair. The braided bun is the longest default. Love this game, hope you put some of my suggestions into practice

Please read!

I absolutely love this game! But there’s one thing that really really really bugs me about it and sometimes ruins the experience: how long it takes to do tasks! Some tasks take reasonable times such as 10mins or 1 hour but some tasks, especially quest tasks, take a stupid amount of time.
For example: I’m on the very last task of the DIY homes: basement of kings quest and there’s a time limit on the chance to get the DIY home, there’s only 2 hours left on the time limit and I’ve just finished the second to last task and I think “wow I might actually have a chance to get something for once” so I click on the laptop and the last task is to “pump up the fans” - something I thought would only take around 15-30 mins and allow me to finish the quest and get the DIY home. So I quickly get to a laptop and see that a usual everyday 15-30 min real life task takes 16 HOURS to do!! I can’t afford to instantly finish the task so I’m forced to do it in full, which means I miss out on the DIY home! It’s so frustrating! Sometimes I think EA deliberately do this just so people buy the vip packs. Please fix this as this is the most annoying thing ever! Please make task times more realistic as sometimes it takes even 6 hours to talk to a sim!

Good game but ruined by bugs

I really enjoyed this game, so much so that I’m really disappointed in recent bugs in the game. I’ve just spent 2 weeks working with sims in there profession workplaces doing tasks so that I could collect enough materials to finally open another workstation (which by the way needs a stupid amount of resources) and after all that I went to upgrade a workstation at the movie theatre and now all the green buttons are gone - its now just dark empty rooms that I can’t do anything with. To make it worse when i go to the movie theatre or police station the buttons show up for a second before the screen flashes white and they disappear again. It may only be a small fault but it has absolutely ruined the game for me. Im assuming the screen flashing white is to do with the current Christmas quest I was in the middle of completing however this idea is absolutely ridiculous. All it does is make a good game super irritating. Im not happy at all about this it’s made the game a waste if time. And I wont be playing anymore until the bugs are fixed. I would also like to point out that some of the time limited quests are absolutely pointless as its physically impossible to finish them without spending money due to the silly length of time some of the tasks take. This should be addresses as if its not people will not bother to play it.
