Don't see you earn gems, cupcakes and simcash like with To Do list. Maybe just didn't show in preview.

I noticed that, too. In the two videos they are excited for the change but all I could see was that we don't have a steady way of earning fashion gems, cupcakes, or simcash anymore.

I'm not too excited about this update. :/

They took away the sim tickets and tokens for some sort of llama currency. I got only 91 llama bucks for the thousands of tickets and tokens I had. To open the new workplaces, I had to spend the simoleans I was saving, plus a few llama bucks. That's another long wait to open a new patch in the yard.

I don't know what the conversion rate was, but I had
20,806 green tickets = $11,024
3,935 blue + 854 purple = 127 llama
I am not happy. Although I admit I haven't done a comparison of old and new prices yet.

Compared some prices.

In home store, most simcash items seemed to stay the same. Most simolean items increased, whether they had required tickets or not. There seemed no pattern of how it converted. Some examples:
Nuke it microwave was $200 +3 green, now $240
Birch perch chair was$185 +2 green, now $394
Live edge rug was $445 + 12 green, now $1156
Balsa counter left was $25, still $25
Balsa outer corner was $25, now $35
Hedge was $35, now $69
Violet shrub was $35 now $79
Salmon shrub was $35, now $53

In wardrobe many simcash went down. Also simolean plus ticket, but some seemed to go up. Again, no pattern. Examples
Male center part hair 175 SC, now 130 SC
Male Pink shirt 35 SC, now 25 SC
Male blue stripe sweater $550 +5 green, now $285
Male gray knee length pants $1720 + 15 green, now $1805 + 1 llama
Female long, right side part 290 SC, now 215 SC
Female Blue blouse $185 + 1 green, now$160
Female orange zip shirt $185 + 1 green, now $165
Female yellow long sleeve yellow $185 + 1 green, now $170

Before it was easy for me to retire a sim & get a new playable one. This time it cost 10 green heirloom tickets. How annoying!

This update seems to have destroyed my ability to attend parties. SKat and Mockingbird, I tried to attend both your parties this weekend, but both crashed my game. What's up with that?

I know, both Mockingbird and Erin's parties crashed on me. Couldn't enter Erin's but it counted as 1 of 2when I tried. Got 1 sim to Mockingbird's, but it froze when I tried to return with another sim.

I don't know if there's a pattern. My recent party that crashed didn't have a lot of players attend (I restricted to friends, and possibly due to crash.) And there was some chat, but not extreme. I do have a hot tub, bubble blower, etc. and some people think this causes crashes.

I did notice, most seem to crash after reaching level 10. For my last two crashes, shortly after. Sheer speculation, but does the game not handle tallying actions by players after level 10? Yet I have attended other parties which reached level 10 and were fine for 6 or 8 more hours.

Frustrating to miss you and other players at both my parties or when I try to attend. How can our sims interact if they can't meet? And that's one of the best things about SM. When it works, that is.
