Good: Nina finally emailed me about my two sims ghost hunting (only took two weeks).

Bad: She said she can't fix it except for maybe uploading my save data from before the mystery island update, which I don't think will work cause they were stuck then too.

Worse: I emailed her back and asked if I would lose all my progress thus far. She has yet to email me back so now I think I'm playing for nothing cuz it will all be reset to before the update. :cry:

Pie....I like pie and cake and cookies and well you get the idea

Good:
- My first Houseboat is getting built and I am quite pleased with that
- I like the long goals that magically get done at a neighbour - grow garlic/moviemarathon but some helpful person has already done this in the saved game yay!
- I am thinking of buying a new dog (in game!)..I love dogs

Bad
- Gathering resources is a pain and I am now growing to hate that Febreze toliet
- Competition centre is still a bit random and a bit strange
- Some goals are not completing for no reason and this is v annoying


V Good
- It's great to have a forum to read stories and see pics! Thank you all

Am hungry now for some reason! :lol:

Weird; I bought nearly all of my sims umbrellas in the weather update. I have since realised that most of my sims no longer have them. They have been sucked into outer space with Osiris. I'm not sure if they disappeared with the neighbour update or the mystery island update.

Bad: when I have Sims doing fashion design I can't collect treasure from dogs or cats! I have to wait until the popping-the-bubbles cycle finishes, and by that time the dog treasure bubble has popped and I have lost the treasure. This makes me unhappy. :cry:
Call the dog to the (filled) feeding bowl. This should give time enough to tap all inspiration balloons :)

Bixas wrote:Good: got an actual response this morning from FM regarding my issue I submitted about the bugs surrounding the island update :o

Bad: Response was nothing more than the boilerplate they published on their site two days after the update. oh and an addendum saying they are not answering issues any more, but feel free to submit them to the site... :?

<<seriously??>>
This is a joke, Bixas, right? Did they really say they weren't answering support issues anymore? If so, maybe they really are going out of business. Or something. Out of their heads, perhaps?
yeah, so after re-reading the whole email... it may not have been as obtuse as I assumed regarding further support (although they were definitely obtuse in the boilerplate garbage).

Here is the text of the email (edited for space)
Nikolic, Nina <NNikolic@ea.com wrote:We’re very sorry for the unfortunate delay in responding to your support request regarding Sims FreePlay timer and relationship issues that were present in a recent update (Neighbours Update).

The latest version of the game (Mystery Island Update) is now available for iOS, Amazon and Android. This update includes bug fixes ... <<and a bunch of deleted text here giving links to the known issues... I assume no one cares about this, but if you do, let me know and I will post all 15 grafs>>

We regret that we are no longer able to service you via e-mail, but hope that our new support system will greatly benefit you in future.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.

<<emphasis mine>>
So they didn't say no more issues, just the e-mail methods have been removed. So my apologies for the rhetoric. The boilerplate response got me peeved enough that I did not give them the benefit on that last line. Thanks for calling me back to earth. :oops:

Good: My town value increases now even if I finish a building early with LP's.

Bad: My competition center still says I have over 900 hrs until the next competition. While that's an improvement over the 1500-something hours it said I had to wait when the glitch first happened, according to Nina's form email, the Competition Center glitch won't be fixed until the next update.

Weird: While I like the idea of building the monuments, I don't think it's much fun gathering resources by spraying a toilet over and over and over.

Good: my competition center got fixed after update, it was also 1500+ hours, but now it is working again.

Bad:
-work and school timers are not fixed, some of the sims do not get called for work, switching jobs does not help, they still are not going while others who started the same job at the same time do. Looks like these timers are sim-specific. All my athletes are unemployed now and have to garden all day to make up for lost income. And none of the 4 teens go to school, "we don't need no education, we don't need no thought control" :)
- repeated charges for gardening, not that large amounts but annoying, I don't like paying twice or more for the same thing.
