The pack of keys in online store has no expiry date..I think it'll remain in online store forever.

I was able to purchase the Rainbow Forest (I think that's its name) for simoleons. The places in it are unlocked and ready to build.

Something weird is going on in my mystery box shop. There is a limited sale of island villa items. Did anyone else notice this too? Is this a one time thing? Will they be placing rare items for sale occasionally? I hope they place spa items for sale next. I will be saving my keys just in case.

I don't know if they would be putting items from the other boxes in the "special" sale box but maybe. It looks like, instead of putting the additional Island villa items in the online store, they've put them in a box - still an attempt to get people to spend money just this time on the mystery box keys instead of by directly purchasing packs.

I've done a quick count of the Island Villa items. I counted 40 items. And with 8 items in a box it will take 5 boxes to get them all. Since this box only costs 1 key it will take 5 weeks worth of weekly tasks to get every item. So even if someone doesn't currently have any keys saved up they can still get all the items as long as they complete 5 weekly tasks during this update.

There are some new items in the fortune box - Items from the Magical Rainforest community event, items from the Dance Party live event, and items from the teen hobby event.

Because the Rainforest items are in the fortune box and telemwill was able to purchase the Magical Rainforest location with simoleons I don't think that event will ever return.

That's pretty amazing! In my test game both the Tropical Romance Island and the Magical Rainforest are unlockable for §2,000,000! That's not event a lot of simoleons for this game! (Once I bought one the price for the other one became §2,400,000.)

However, I feel for anyone who purchased these locations for real money in the past. I'm getting real sick of this game FM plays with us regarding real money.

Me too! I just bought the Romance Island for thirty dollars. I think I will not spend that much real money again. But I am happy to finally have them both unlocked.

We can place furniture in front of the island villa windows now, but not the windows from the curtain event (sorry can’t remeber what it was called).

Nice :) we can also place things in front of paintings that we couldn't before and the planters have their own category in the home store :) Also can children be adopted now? I saw it on youtube but I'm not sure.
