The world is changing, and the Sims community is not immune to the constant change. As players worldwide grapple with coronavirus, with political change and unrest, with the changing seasons and times they continue to lean on their beloved games to navigate the world. This week, FreePlay unleashed news of updates for the next two months; Sims Mobile wound down their latest Sweet Treat Showdown, and Sims 4 rolled out their newest stuff pack: Sims 4 Paranormal.
The Sims FreePlay
Easily the most demanding of the three games, Sims FreePlay Game Changers revealed the mobile game's newest slew of events this week. Players can now look forward to a rustic wedding update in February and a glitzy Art Deco update in March. In fact, the brand new Influence Island event, Rustic Wedding, began January 27th. Players are currently cajoling and charming their ways into the hearts of several Sim NPCs to gain network credits. These credits earn, this time around, such romantic prizes as quaint barrels overflowing with flowers, rustic folding chairs with pastel upholstery, simple suits and maiden-like dresses, and awnings swaddled in flowers. The adjoined SimChase, which begins on February 3rd and offers wedding seating, a dance floor adorned with fairy lights, a rustic wedding camera, elegant loveseats, and long banquet tables for the perfect wedding reception.
Mid-February and March will bring a daring Art Deco update gilded in gold. The Belle Hotel Live event begins on February 15th, the Influence Island: Suite Success begins on March 15th, and the fresh SimChase: Bar Brawl, begins on February 27th. Throughout these events, Simmers can expect to win stunning works of geometric, Jazz-inspired, early 20th century bliss. Suite Success will offer diamond-shaped mirrors, luxury vanities, glittering archways, and the lights and storage pieces of the swing generation. Bar Brawl's prizes include stunning gold fountains, impressive Art Deco bar stools, bars, barbacks, and other shining pieces perfect for a Sims speakeasy. The Belle Hotel live event offers a tantalizing set of roaring twenties prizes complete with a huge 20th century hotel as a grand prize.
The Sims Mobile
The Sims Mobile wound down the final event in its most recent update this week. The current Sweet Treat Showdown: Charming Crafts, began January 25th and gives players the opportunity to mix and bake their way into Sweet Treat fame. Correctly baked rounds give sweet and royal tokens as a reward. Players exchange these tokens for crafty comforts such as hobby shop shelves, hobby carts and pinboards, mannequins, rocking chairs, sweater dresses for females, and more. The grand prizes for this event are a crafty sewing table, a long bangs hairstyle for men, and a 50's flip curl hair style for women.
Mobile players are looking to the horizon for the next big update.
The Sims 4
Simmers in the Sims 4 community are absolutely a buzz about the newest Paranormal stuff pack. Released on January 26th, Sims 4: Paranormal has shocked players with robust gameplay, stunning build/buy items, and Create-a-Sim items that suggest the effortless, haunting beauty of New Orleans. Even players who didn't purchase the pack received a free update to their games: Sims can now experience the fear moodlet, adding a fresh aspect to gameplay.
Gameplay for this pack is enormously robust. Simmers can hold seances to summon spirits and the infamous Bonehilda. They can also earn a paranormal license through Guidry the Ghost, visit and build haunted houses, and dispel naughty spirits with their wits and skills. Sims can master the medium skill, search for haunted items, and find frightening thrills in every corner of this pack.
That's all for now, but stay tuned on Simmers Digest's website for more in-depth coverage.
Stay safe, wash your hands, and happy (haunted) Simming!
☀️ Warm it Up or Cool it Down ❄️
Currently, Sims Mobile’s gameplay does not include changing seasons. Thus, mobile Simmers must get creative to mold their homes in the fashions of fall or the wild chill of winter.
Simmers can take a leaf from LaPrem or Ester to “warm up” or “cool down” rooms and terrain.
☀️ Warm-up your rooms with
-Using natural materials like reclaimed wood or hardwood for flooring and wallpaper
-Fireplaces, particularly festive ones
-Accents in red-based colors such as red, orange, gold, and deep browns
❄️ Cool-down your rooms with
- White Garden Stroll tiles that mimic snow
- Accents in blue-based colors such as green, silver, blue, and purple
-Festive ornaments that suggest snow: snowpals, raindeer, and sleighs
