Sims Freeplay update on 2-2-12... hint for The Sims FreePlay

Sims Freeplay update on 2-2-12...

The 2-2-12 update adds a few new things for your sims houses. Mostly valentine and heart themed stuff. There are free rose arrangements you can put everywhere. And you can now go higher than level 30. There's also a new hobby item (a telescope) added for a scientist, so I assume that is a teaser and at some point we can add a lab or something to the city and have the option of a scientist job. But that is not available yet. The update is ok. BUT ... If you have not updated the app yet and are planning on buying furniture for the houses, do that first before updating. The cost of most of the furniture goes up considerably. For example, the dining room chairs that cost 60 sim, now cost 600sim. Do your furniture shopping before the update.

i rate there should be cheats which ever douch bag said there shouldnt be. the game takes way too long for everything. im tired of the world today, they just want to frikin make money and scam you into buying everything. You get an ipad which isnt cheap than you must buy everything for it on top of that and when there is something free, you cant really play it unless you buy in app purchases like simileons. Cant they just make something for free and when you play it, its all there and fun just as a nice thing to costomers who have bought there frikin ipads.

How do you suggest ideas to EA?? It would be cool if the babies could grow up, and the house build area was bigger. And there were some new cheats. I tried the cheat I knew before the update (Easter) and now with the update it won't work.

BOOO update. The update is the worst. I tried for 3 days to download it. I didn't want to delete because I was on level 31 and had done the cheat for lp and simoleans. I ended up being so frustrated after 3 days that I deleted and proceeded to download again, which took another whole day. Now I'm back at level one. All my old stuff is gone and the cheats no longer work. They must be crazy if they think I'd spend $11.99 to buy "simoleons" in the store. I deleted the game. No longer any fun. Bye bye sims freeplay.

Hi all,
I have been able to play by dragging down the top bar on the iPad main screen. By doing that, you open a menu that shows the push notifications. If you find one from TheSims Free Play click on it. It usually opens the app even if it seems stuck. I haven't been able to open it if there is no notification though, so the suggestion is to keep those Sims busy.
Good luck

the only way i was able to upload was to go to my computer and get the update from iTunes in the section where you can get all your updates and then once I plugged up my iPhone and iPad, it updated it. I was stuck for 4 days while both of my devices continuously tried to update it.

I was able to update two nights ago... got the lab built, telescope, bunches of valentine things. On 2/5, my Freeplay on iPad wanted to do another update. Now it just gets stuck loading and cannot fully update. I can't access the app at all. I am wondering what I will find once I am able to get in.... money missing? LP missing? :( I know this is free but I am not happy about this glitch.

If my game won't update and keeps restarting? Should I just delete the whole thing??? Please help! It's been "updating" for 3 days now and I don't know what to do!!

Things are a lot more expansive in the new version, also might cost you LP points instead of money like the nice white bathroom sink. The (youtube) cheat stills works though!! but you have to be real quick and do it in the right order, good luck!

Unlimited money and xp cheat will no longer work

As once you are passed a reward stage it benchmarks it and you can no longer sell and purchase to reach the mile stone again. In fact I have received no rewards for passing 35000000 or 40000000 (after I built the science lab)

No longer recovering extra XP for tasks when sims are maxed out. I have noticed you receive lower XP now for certain tasks such as sleeping

Also cheat for turning the clocks back so sims don't miss work. No longer works :(

WARNING: I did the unlimited money and ip cheat about 2 weeks ago. I was at Level 28, almost everyting built, Sims were maxed out in relationships, tons of nice stuff in my homes, careers almost maxed. Living the Sims highlife. In the process of the update loading into my game it DELETED my entire app from my iphone! Can EA recognize the cheats we do in the game and delete the entire game??? Gotta start all over again grrrrr
