Changes
New marketplace billboards at professions workplaces, new market place evetns
Some new clothes for male and female adults
Earned currency and xp will float up to the top menu instead of float straight up and disappear
Toddlers move differently, twirl, skip, wipe their noses...
Some updates to the graphics - LP and XP look different in the hobby screens, the check mark, move, and rotate buttons in build mode, bubbles for houses are different, the icons above community buildings now indicate what they are (workplace, store, monument)
The "task complete" screen is different
Differnt players and different devices have different missed limited time prizes in the online store
Android devices on Marshmallow can't take photos using the in-game camera, no permissions
Extreme lagging on multiple devices
Almost all wardrobes and chests are missing from the home store - they are back now
Sims will go to any available oven to cook not necessarily the one you tapped on
If you tap on what level you are you can see how many XP is needed to level up or that you are at the max level
There is no longer a confirmation for using LPs while trading resources in the workplaces
"Clothes Bundle" with 6 dresses, lace on the back are not restored with "Restore Purchases"
The icons for inspiration and haunted are now back to normal for tablet layouts
Basement in build mode can freeze the game
The pink and blue colors for genders has become green for both

My Sims Freeplay app shows an update but it says hospital on iOS. I think there's a glitch.

I saw the hospital icon first too and downloaded it but instantly the halloween one turned up. Now downloading that one.

Heck, whatever the update offers is going to be better than my initial assessment of 'It's all the flipping same' ;)

There's now a billboard at profession worksites. I tapped on it and it says there isn't currently an event. :/

Definitely curious about this. Mine said the same thing.

The bonus videos are in the task screen again.

Also, the XP and money fly up to the top.

Sounds good so far! :D
New furniture is always welcome (better than more onesies, why they've been so obsessed with them is anyone's guess)

That market place thing sounds interesting; might make it easier to do professions and the line about getting previously-missed stuff sounds very promising!

And perhaps the best thing, the Spa event is coming back! - Yay, I missed it before and it looks by far one of the more interesting events of previous years.

My only worry; how will I get enough woodworkers (assuming that's what I'll need to grind)? I like to keep one sim at the highest possible level in each relevant hobby, but that simply isn't possible anymore. Gonna have to make hard choices...

Not seeing a lot of "Halloween" stuff to excite me though, oh well, can't have everything.

Edit; I hope they haven't done away with the architect homes, that was a great way to get rare items!
