The Mystery Shop boxes have gotten a makeover and now offer some really great rewards like past limited time prizes, items from community buildings around town, completely new items, and even items and clothes from the online store!

There is a glitch with the new quest - the "Begin Quest" button doesn't show so we can't start it.

I got the button to show up by force closing the game, opening it back up and then going to the mysterious island or downtown area and back to the mainland until the pop up for the new quest came up. Then I selected "visit". When I was taken to the park and tapped on the new discovery quest bubble it had the "Begin Quest" button this time.

I'm super pro better mystery boxes. I had gotten seven keys but then stopped the weekly tasks because they started to feel annoying and distracting (also I got the task to divorce sims which angered me because I didn't have any sims I wanted to divorce at that point. I had married them for a reason and didn't want my hard work undone! Plus they weren't done making babies yet).

I noticed that many of the prizes look like they come from the spa and urban furniture events. Does anyone think that this means those events have been retired? I've been hoping they would reappear in every new update because I looooove the prizes for those events but started the game after they had already passed :cry: . I mean, I'm glad I have a way to get the prizes now, but I still want a chance to earn the prizes from the spa and urban furniture events.

Thank you for the advice. Although it didn't work for me with the force stop method. I had to reset the game and download my save data from the cloud to get the button.

If someone needs to try that one, please make sure you have saved the game to the cloud before resetting!

Oh, and I just spent 10 keys on the old fortune box this morning before updating! Tried to reset, but had an auto save from sending a sim to a neighbour.
The new prizes look much more exciting. Does anyone know if you still get LP and SP from them?

I'm having the same glitch on my iPad but your fix didn't work. Think I should try reinstalling the whole game?
