After weeks of anticipation, the Sims Mobile development team finally unveiled their next huge game-changing update late Thursday evening. The enormous update will introduce a fresh event type, the arrival of house templates, and the long-awaited demise of LlamaZoom.

The End of LlamaZoom
LlamaZoom became a staple of the Sims Mobile franchise a couple years ago in the wake of the static, dependable daily task list. The LlamaZoom truck, with Sim NPC Emily at the helm, offered LlamaZoom tokens in exchange for a predetermined gamut of relationship, hobby, or career tasks. Mobile Simmers used these tokens to unlock land or purchase coveted Build/buy objects.
Mobile’s Celebrity Life update completely removes Emily and her ubiquitous llama truck for good.
Instead, players will complete daily tasks for a new in-game currency: prize tickets.
Simmers can redeem prize tickets at festivals, fifty-day special events that offer incredible CAS and Build/Buy prizes. A new one will trigger for every major Sims Mobile update, or as soon as their app icon changes.
Here is a quick rundown of how festivals work:
House templates are pre-built homes that Simmers who are short on time (ahem, or building skill) can plop down on any lot for their Sims.
It appears that Simmers who purchase the “Festival” ticket will gain access to these exclusive homes and a new NPC to boot. Players will be able to befriend or marry the new NPC.
There is far more to this update, and all will be revealed soon! Keep it locked right here on Simmer’s Digest!
The Sims FreePlay
The Sims Mobile
There has been a marked lull in news regarding the three most current Sims spheres this week as Sims FreePlay, Sims Mobile, and Sims 4 all quietly ran current events and packs without hiccups. Sims FreePlay continued its New York Loft events, Sims Mobile continued its gamut of rerun events, and Sims 4 players began speculating about Sims 5 all while criticizing the new bunkbed update.
Sims FreePlay continued their New York Loft-inspired update with SimChase Bathroom and Breakfast Bedlam, which began March 31st. This event encourages the player to complete a gamut of tasks, some requiring up to nine Sims, within a time limit in order to win prizes. Successfully beat the “rival” Sim, and the player will win beautiful but simple decor such as oak wood counters, caged lights, sleek washer units, vanity sinks with exposed pipes, and more. Additionally, players get to earn men’s clothing— a long jacket, distressed jeans, shoes, and a short hairstyle with frosted tips. Finishing the whole event rewards players with female clothing items— a cropped jacket, leopard print leggings, and a long, braided hairstyle.
Players look forward to the “Lofty Lifestyle” title event which gives players the opportunity to earn understated, lightly industrial items fit for any New York apartment.

Sims Mobile players wrapped up the “Dessert for Two” event this week, which re-offered the stunning marble bathtub, the outdoor movie screen, gorgeous trees hung with clear glowing lanterns, romantic lighting, and much more. Mobile also reran anniversary packs, a series of four packs containing wall art, large landscaping flora, and in-game currency. If players purchase all four packs, they earn Mawdrey, the Sim-eating plant FreePlay players will readily recognize, for “free.”
Mobile Players can look forward to the rerun of the Wash N’ Fold event, which will begin April 5th. This event offers a washing machine as a grand prize alongside similarly adorable pastel accessories fit for any laundry room such as shelving, a clothing line, detergent bottles, and laundry day lounge clothing like hoodies and sweat pants.
Sims Mobile players should also be on the lookout for the next update, which promises to be a larger, more game-changing one.
The Sims 4
All is mostly quiet on the Sims 4 front as players continue to explore and criticize the most recent Bunkbeds update. While the bunkbeds are customizable, there are few variations in bunkbed swatches, with one of the few variations rewarding players with an “uncomfortable” moodlet.
While players speculate that Sims 5 will be revealed in June’s EA Play event, others whisper that Sims 4 isn’t done yet, and there may be several more game packs and expansion packs in the near future. Stay tuned for more updates right here with Simmer’s Digest.
That’s all for now, but stay safe, grab some fresh spring air, and happy Simming!
