  4. Why don't you guys do a guide about Skill levels? I've leveled up my cooking to the max of 128, this included the Sim Cash purchase of the black microwave, & the 15,000 social point cooking island...now with the update I make 35 + 35 inspired for a total of 70 simoleons per energy. I haven't purchased the art computer...but have the Japanese easel maxed(106 skill/30+30=60), and am stuck wondering if I should purchase for a chance at earning more simoleons per energy? I think it would be a useful guide and could be updated in the future with the release of other future skill items. PLEASE CAN YOU CONSIDER THIS? I think it would help a lot of people.

  5. maybe if my stupid sim did not break and wreck every single item she touches,every two dam times she uses it, things would be more fun to play. I waste more energy on repairing crap than ten people should have to!it might be a cartoon, but I build a awesome home for my sim and the unappreciative thing breaks it all.Also if shes stupid enough to not auto. use a toilet when need be, just stands there complaining and holding her crotch like an idiot, she deserves to pee herself.The game has auto Queue doesnt it? So why the crap?

  6. it says to craft the items you have and then you use them in your backpack. when you have say 3 goodwill but you need 5 goodwill to finish a task, and when you craft it takes away and now your back to having an 0 in your goodwill. so its not good to craft? it just takes it away from your tasking and its annoying to have to start over to regain what you lost. and yes i agree the sim needs to stop breaking everything and pee on her self...lol

    1. good point, also building furniture items often use the same items as the related quest, and sometimes you don't have a choice if you've asked friends for it, it goes to the quest first, (EX: needed dreams to finish my angel bed, but one of the quests I was working on also required dreams, it went to the quest first, then I couldn't finish my bed, bummer!!) then you don't have enough to build stuff, it's ridiculous how many items you need to build stuff, sometimes a little unreasonable, still working on the two beds, annoying it is taking so long to get the items needed to complete (oh, maybe I should buy them!!! -ha!) Guess we all want everything to be free.

    2. I lost 35 simcash when accidentally click the buy button- the craft window was load very slow but when it hit the buy button ,my simcash instantly gone without any delay, like a flash. I cant complain to costumer service coz my country is not listed. -_-

  7. Auto Que was designed to function while your not logged into game... AS long as your logged in, the autoque will work to an extent.. but eventually all your needs will turn from green to red

  8. what about new items in craft sections please provide details

  9. it sucks to me that most of my attempts at gaining gifts or rewards rely on my selfish friends in FB. They either are too busy to click your links for you or they are not bothered.

    I need FB Sims Social mates who will solely help me to achieve items because they understand how much I love this game. lol!

    Sad I know. But you can add me on FB or leave me a message I am Biffy Von Biffington on FB.

  10. I want to know why every time a craft a good night sleep for thr latest game it does not show

    ReplyDelete
  11. OK, I don't really understand the point of a lot of these, except for the ones needed in the quests, and the ones offering simoleons, or energy, and the inspired one. The other ones, to raise hunger, sleep, hygeine are useless, because it is easier to just do what you need to do in the house to raise the needs. It's a pain to go to the "craft", then click on the item, then click "OK" versus, click on the shower and make your sim take a shower. Why would this way be better? Also, I don't really understand why it is such an act of the higher powers to gain energy. If we run out, we simply can't play any longer and have to wait to gain it back (oh, yea you want us to buy it? Most won't.) Anyway, seems like it makes more sense to encourage players to keep playing rather than keep them from playing. I spend most of my gametime trying to gain more energy in order to do stuff. If you buy energy with simcash, it's a rip off, 15 energies for like 12 simcash or something. You'd use up that energy in like 2 minutes. I think you need to rethink this part of the game.

    1. also, if everything didn't cost so much, I would buy some, but c'mon 20 and 30 K simoleons for some items, and 75-150 simcash?? Kind of pricey in this economy don't you think? Sorry, I'm on a rant, just think they ask too much for stuff, and the weekly quests take too long and require too much stuff to finish.
