Just noticed a change in the wardrobe after unlocking 2 activewear packs. There's now a separate tab for VIP exclusives, and another tab called New Stuff. That's where I found all the activewear, both the original one from finishing the quest and the hobby-unlocked ones, all as separates (tops, pants/shorts, and shoes). I wonder how long items will stay in New Stuff.

The separate tab for VIP stuffs has been there awhile. The New Stuff tab is a nice change, though! Sometimes it's hard to tell what is new. :?

Still a part of this update, though, yeah?

Must be an Android thing because I didn't have it on my devices. Kinda like how with Androids new things were marked "new"...now they have a tab too.

The pine cone staircase can't be used outside. What a shame.

I have it on my Apple devices, not as a tab at the top, but as a tab choice in the boxes under wardrobe.

That's what I assumed it would be (just another tab in the wardrobe like "tops" or "shoes" ) based on rajcaz's pictures here. But when thirsty4souls said they got it for the hair and I definitely didn't get that tab for the hairstyles and android always get the "new" notification on new items but apple devices don't I thought the New Stuff tab might be like that. :)

I just noticed that the new Aerobic Hobby only give sout 2 LP after finishing. It used to be 3 or 5 with the old hobbies.

Wait...what!?! Only 2 LP!! That's ridiculous for a hobby that has long action times and basically NEEDS 15 Sims doing it to complete a grid in a day. Even if it doesn't require as many Sims to complete a grid once you're just collecting LP, it's still too little to dedicate even a few Sims for such long action times. Well, for me, anyway, who uses hobbies for grinding LP.

I did have 6 woodworkers prior to the aerobics hobby, but the grid really does complete fairly quickly for the action time. Plus, it's used fairly often for events and I just hadn't reassigned these remaining few from the Homestead event, for which I had about 12-15 going for it. I just left these six since I didn't have anything else that I wanted them to be doing. I still have one right now, as I like to have at least one at the highest level, plus this hobby gets used for the weekly goals (yes, I still do those). :lol:
