How do I play Offline

Post by Reshiram »

Google Play Store keeps listing The Sims Freeplay as "Games you can play while Offline" but it seems that it's far from that at all. Anytime I don't have a stable Internet Connection, it tells me I need to be online to play. the game has a history of disconnecting my Wifi as soon as I open it and it says it requires an Internet Connection.

If Google Play says you can play offline, then how do I do so? it doesn't let me at all.

There's no Option to report the inaccuracy to Google so there's got to be a way or a Setting I'm missing.

I can actually play the game on iOS offline and I do it so often.

But, I have to start the game online (it won't start offline) and then I could just turn off the internet connection and keep playing as usual.

Oh that's interesting that it works offline in that manner.

Thanks!

I used to do this on my lunch hour at work. There was only one corner of the building where I could pick up wifi so I would go out there to connect and then I could go play in the lunchroom.

If the screen turns off you will need a condition again but it's pretty useful, you only need to change the screen time out that way you'll keep the game offline.
