News:

Black History Month In honor of Black History Month, we’re continuing to celebrate the importance of representation by delivering a new face type and a Hair Hobby event that features curly and textured hairstyles for adult Sims that were suggested by our community! We’re grateful for the voices from our Black community - you continue to help us pave the way in our development.

New Face Type Have you been enjoying the new refreshed look of elder, adult, teen and preteen life stages since our October update? We promised that we’d continue our journey of delivering more customization options, so this update we’re delivering one new face type so more of you can continue to see yourselves in The Sims FreePlay! […]

New Hair Hobby – Embrace the ‘Fro!
[…]Begin the new hobby event anytime during the month of February, so make sure you’re up to level 16 and have built the ‘Promotions R Us’ store (found in front of the park, next to the pet shop) in your SimTown so you can unlock all 32 variants within the 7-day time limit!

Ultimate Makeover will be reduced to 2 LP for the duration of this update

The Sims 23rd Birthday
Hoople Borpna! Join in on the birthday fun with The Sims during the month of February. Don’t miss a special surprise from The Sims FreePlay in the "Behind The Sims’ Community stream" on YouTube & Twitch on January 31, 9am PST! (5 pm UTC)

-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-

Changes:

There's a new option at the oven called 'Brew a Cup of Joe'.
And the ultimate makeover for a sim now costs 2 LP
A new option for watching a video seems to show up on the Sim Tracker when the time remaining on a task is less than an hour.


Bugs
The new option for watching videos for quick completing tasks doesn’t work properly.

That video icon also shows in the Sim Tracker when their task is done, but no videos are shown.

In their article they said it will be for the duration of this update. It would have been better to keep the 0 LP from the former update. There‘s enough to spend LPs on.

It is showing up before the task is finished (I think when it is less than one hour) and the video option shows up when you tap on the sim, similar to the quick complete options. I don’t have any at the moment but I will take screenshots next time. It stays on the sim tracker even if the task is completed until you go to the sim.
