(My totally inserted comment: You'd think they could come up with a better ad illustration than a gal with pink hair looking at a bracelet. Nothing in the main picture is related to the items you're purchasing. --- Skat)

Actions and reactions free pack is one cupcake. It talks about their change to instant complete most actions now. You can immediately go on to next action if you want. You can also tap somewhere on the scene to release them. Risky actions are not included in the instant complete at this time. If you don't chose another action, the sim will still go thru their complete animation.

Detail info on change in action.
Source
https://www.ea.com/games/the-sims/the-s ... een-update

Currently, when your Sim undertakes actions during events, quests and around their home, you would have seen a pink and white star icon to tap on an object. The animations of your Sim used to play for 5 seconds and then you would have seen a green tick above their head, encouraging you to collect rewards.

The new changes:

We’ve completely removed the green ticks to help create perfect screenshot moments
Collection of rewards is now automatic and occurs at the beginning of the action.
Sim will continue the animation indefinitely until you select a new action, whenever you want!
There is no change to energy costs, so you can spend your energy any way you like
This will permanently impact the way you play Sweet Treat Showdown, Treasure Hunt and Eco Workshop events, , even smaller things like sitting on a couch!
The end result of this change is that you can play through events and do actions with your Sims at your own pace! You can perform actions quickly if you just want to use your Sims’ energy, or you can take it slow and enjoy the animations without worrying about the green tick getting in the way! At this stage, “risky” actions have not changed (pink and white sunglasses icon), they will still have a tick mark

Most important statement to me is:
Sim will continue the animation indefinitely until you select a new action, whenever you want!

If you want to interact with another sim twice in a row (example with a child in relationship event where sometimes only action at time is the child) just tap off to side to end action and reset available choices.
