Change To The Daily Play Rewards Timer

We know that the Daily Play Rewards have been slightly mixed up and complicated since The Sims Social developers made amendments and changes to them over the Christmas holiday period and some people were not receiving them for one reason or another.

From comments and further research this was partly down to a glitch and also how The Sims Social logged your daily visits. The old way was that you had to log in after 24 hours of your last visit to the game but before 48 hours for your visit to be logged. For example if you logged in at 02:00 then you would have to make sure you logged back in after after 02:01 and before 01:59 the following day, which also meant that your five days could end up being somewhere around nine days before you were granted your rewards, if at all.


As of this morning, Playfish have changed the way that The Sims Social Daily Play Reward timer operates. So in theory there should be no more bugs and players who weren't receiving them will begin to do so again.

The Daily Play Bonus will now reset at midnight (GMT). So make sure you log in before this time everyday and you should be fine, this means that you no longer have to remember when you logged in on the previous day. Another note left by The Sims Social staff is that if you are playing the game during the midnight reset, then you will have to log out of the game and reload it in order to obtain your subsequent Daily Play Reward.

From what we can see, it doesn't look like any amendments have been made to the rewards themselves and you still have the chance to earn up to 10 Free SimCash on your fifth consecutive day of playing The Sims Social online Facebook game.

We are glad to see that Playfish have worked hard at rectifying the problems with The Sims Socials Daiy Play Rewards, are you? Do they seem to be working fine for you now? Were you affected by the glitch over the Christmas period? Share your thoughts via the usual channels of our Facebook Page, Chat Room, Forum or by leaving a brief and constructive Comment below.

  2. Excellent stuff!! Mine's only been iffy since the Tycoon boxes left, so I know I've been luckier than others, but I'm so glad this has been fixed. I can start saving SC again. Thank you very much Playfish!! Now let's hope the next glitch isn't so obvious. XD

  3. its not working for me still....that and the energy gift does not show up nor do my posts for help or finished quests...and I have asked over and over and over if this is going to be addressed...

  4. It's about time!!! I haven't received any rewards since before Thanksgiving. And from October until New years Eve I played literally everyday. I even played the whole week of Christmas and got not one of those black boxes even though my family and friends all got them... I was and still am very upset about that. So much so that this month I slowed playing immensely and found other games to play.. I even considered shutting down my account completely.

  9. Who ever gets the 10 or even passed 4 simcash. What about 6 to 8 simcash? Is there anyone that gets that?.. anyways maybe a few times I have logged in on the time I would have the day b4 and still there would be nothing. But usually I wouldn't pay attention.

  11. It'd be nice if they did a little more to make it up to us for all the missed rewards. >:(

    ReplyDelete
  12. So what about the bonuses we missed out on. And my sim cash was being taken away when I did get the bonus. I had 25 coins and for two bonuses I got 4 coins each and it subtracted my sim cash to 16 so sim cash I had bought had disappeared. How are they working to compensate our losses???

    ReplyDelete

  32. Its about time. I play daily and have felt jipped on rewards. I hope they improve the sim cash glitch as well, I have never once received more than 4!

    Also there has been a wall stuck in my yard for months, not a room, just a wall! Fix PLEASE!

    ReplyDelete
  33. yeah i was! I'm not sure if I've ever gotten any!!! They owe me many a simcash!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Im so glad that they are finally getting the glitches worked out...I love this game but I am really getting tired of the reload, especially when I am collecting my rewards and than lose them ALL because I got the reload glitch! Hopefully they will also find something more for those of us that have reached the limit on things.

    ReplyDelete
  35. thank goodness for that!

    ReplyDelete
  36. I am just curious as to why you don't mention all the other changes 1. No more energy for you neighbors from the cow plant. 2. No more receiving Special Packages back when you gift them to your neighbors, 10 simoleons instead. 3. Number 2 also goes for the Red Envelope.

    ReplyDelete
  37. It was working just fine for me, now I'm worried it won't work after this change.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Boy have I been ripped, we will see if this works.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Yes, I had problems with this. It keep bringing me back to day one. The only thing that keeps me playing is the fact it is free and honestly we have no right to complain about something we are getting for FREE!!! Besides, everyone makes mistakes, right?

    ReplyDelete
  40. Wow!! Fantastic! Sooooo much easier!

    ReplyDelete
  41. Does this mean I can get the free tycoon boxes missed out on.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Nice to get a LAME little 2 SimCash after logging in all week. So PATHETIC!!! Has ANYONE ever recieved 10 SimCash on the last day? Somehow I seriously doubt it!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Well I never had trouble with the daily rewards, but taking away my black and red tile then not returning it was not a fair play, so they gave everyone social points that didn't help me replace my tile, I think they should have gave me enough sim cash to buy the tile back. I didn't need anymore social points.

    ReplyDelete
  44. thaank goodness!!! i play sims social consecutivly and didnt recieve anything each time i played and my brother logs in and he plays just every once in a while and he gets 1 day prise im like wtf!?!

    ReplyDelete

    Go here to see when midnight GMT is in your time zone: http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/

  47. Yes I did experience this issue in the month of January. I sure hope you will extend the time for the quests which required us to do daily tasks. It would be disappointing and frustrating if I did completed all the requirements for a quest such as buying certain furniture items, only to have the quest time out because I was not properly credited for the daily tasks I tried to complete but did not get credit for. Thanks for fixing it though! That is good news!

    ReplyDelete
  48. I hated the old way.... yeah glad they got with the program on that matter..lol

    ReplyDelete
