Unable to connect to neighbors?

Post by Hufflepuff Karen »

I can't visit neighbors tonight? Is anybody else having problems? I've rebooted my iPad, etc.

I am not updated to iOS 7 yet and I haven't done the new SFP update (all of my updates are manual, because I hate dealing with glitches caused by unexpected or new updates until they have been up and running for awhile).

I wanted to try to level up to 32 before I do updates. Got to 31 this morning visiting Bazlit for about 20 minutes and about 300 toilet sprays :). Besides the XP I also got enough missing resources to upgrade my Terra and my Flames.

I tried to visit tonight, several of my 30 neighbors, and I can't visit. It keeps saying "retry."
I think, therefore, I Sim! (Or I did before they told me to "harvest" them)

I think its because all of us have updated and you haven't. For some reason, you can't visit neighbours that you don't have the same update with. If that makes any sense. Whichever neighbours you have that have not updated, you might be able to visit. But all those who have, you won't be able to because the games are not in sync with updates.

Sorry if I ended up confusing you more.

Thanks, guess I will go do my iOS update tonight, then the SFP update tomorrow... Sigh, was really hoping to squeeze a few more resources out if the Febreze toilets before I updated.

Last night I had problems, too. First I could visit a neighbor, the next neighbor showed "connection failed" I didn't try this morning, yet.
Same with connection to the cloud. We cannot visit other towns without connection to the cloud.

I updated overnight, and am mad I forgot to put them all back in their original clothes, because all of the dresses are gone :(

Baked doughnuts overnight (successfully) and they finished shortly after Aurora met Osiris, so she was able to make him happy. Now Lee is reading the Big Book of Stuff. I keep finding Osiris in strange places, and he has a tricorder or something like it, seems to be interested in the fish tanks. And what's with the disco ball?? :lol:

Neighbor goal is movie marathon, which I will send Seamus out to do tonight assuming I can visit everybody again. Will try some short visits at lunch today.

Did you look at the fancy dress shop already? Some of the clothes are there now (but still for free)

Regarding baking/cooking ... There are several update goals which need cake. You can bake and hoard the cakes until they are needed. My goals completed when I taped the cakes :D

I haven't built the dress shop yet. Didn't seem worth it at the beginning, so I was waiting for it to come up as a goal. Maybe I'll go ahead and start it. I hate the salon thing, who wants to pay $400,000 for a hair dresser? They should make that more reasonable - then our Sims could go every week, get their hair done and do fancy stuff for weddings and parties and whatnot.
