News
(Shortened from the article)
Introducing the ‘SimDex’ at the ‘Active Tasks’ menu which now include the addition of two new tabs – the ‘Progress’ and ‘SimDex’ tabs.
The new ‘SimDex’ tab gives a snapshot of ALL non-live event content within The Sims FreePlay. Quests, Hobbies, Careers and everything in between is listed in a series of ‘Level Buckets’. These buckets show you what you can complete at that Player Level. We’ve also added a handy ‘Visit Location’ button to some items in the SimDex to help you find your way faster!

Furthermore, you’ll now also earn ‘Progress Points’ whenever you complete an item in the SimDex! Collect enough points to earn awesome new prizes, just for playing the game! Note that you’ll automatically be awarded Progress Points for any content you’ve already completed.The ‘Progress’ tab gives you a holistic view of how much of the game you have completed, and how many Progress Points you’ve earned from each feature! If you ever forget what anything means, tap on the handy info button in either the ‘SimDex’ or ‘Progress’ tabs!

Home Store Categories – Support Posts While you’re in Build Mode, you’ll now see a new option to access ‘Support Posts’ to make your multistory creations even more architecturally designed.
If you haven’t unlocked this feature, it'll be locked/greyed out, but with clear instructions on the requirements and path you’ll need to take to access the feature. Complete all 'Quests in Queue' in the Active Tasks Menu including, Level 17 'Multi-Story Renovation' then, finish:
Level 15 'DIY Homes: Peaceful Patio and 'DIY HOMES: Lovey-Dovey Balcony’ Discovery Quest from Level 17.

Probably not. The Holiday High Rise Live Event was new in June 2019 and it‘s not listed as repeat in the latest December/January update.

This has happened to me too. I have everything “unlocked” previously as I have completed everything to date… (except for the pregnancy events until they allow us to spend the accumulated coins).

It really sucks that I can’t access some items now :(

Have you sent a ticket to fire monkeys about it?

This happened to me too. It said that I hadn't completed 3 hobbies, even though I had already gotten the original prizes and had those 3 LP as a reward now.
Same with the careers. I've completed all of them years ago, but now only says I've done 3 of them.

Hmm. This sounds troubling. I haven’t done the update yet cause I was worried about issues like this! I’ve been playing since Sims FreePlay first started and have everything unlocked/completed (though I also skip most of the pregnancy events, they are just too tedious!) Now I’m not sure if I should update…

This SimDex issue is going on in my game as well and players are posting about it all over the Sims Community. Joy is showing whats going on in her game.
