Now the new exterior wall appears uniformly shaded..previously individual floors were shaded separately.

Player ID is now on the bottom of "..." screen. Previously it was hidden somewhere deeper.
And Cloudsave ID. Never saw these before
They used to only be listed at the very bottom of the "About" section in the "Info" section.

Additional item packages from the Magical Rainforest event are now available in the Mystery Box Shop.
And so are items from the Dance Party live event and the Teen hobby event.

I don't know if this change happened in another update but Sims actions have changed with BBQs. I only used the "Cook on BBQ" and "Use BBQ" options, so I don't know if the other options have new actions, as well, and not only have the actions changed but Sims don't sit for the "Use BBQ" option anymore. Which is very disappointing. I hope that if this change is as a result of this update that it is because our Sims will be able to sit with the new BBQs that are available with this update.
I actually like this change... :oops: It kinda always annoyed me that the sims would only be at the BBQ for a very short time and then go off to eat. When trying to create a backyard BBQ I had to be very quick to take a screenshot before my bbq-ing sim would go off somewhere to eat.

and for me it is pool cleaner - now it is available for simoleans and before was $1 or so. Pool cleaner was the only item I would've wanted to buy but I don't spend money on the free games on principle :) And now all my pools are finally sparkling, yay!
The pool cleaner is still an online purchase in my test game - I don't have it in my home store for §600. :?

that is strange, in my game pool cleaner appeared right after update in new items section. Now I only see the ones I stored in inventory and these are also still showing in new items. But I don't see it in pool items section if going there through the store tab, not inventory. Well, maybe it was short sale, anyway I'm happy to see clean pools :)

Well, the pool cleaner and some other items were for sale in the previous update and the sale was not over when the new update was released. Probably the sale carried over for the remaining days.

I see, thanks for the note. I thought pool cleaner sale was part of the new update but it was there already. Recently I had been paying only right after updates to see what is new. Had been playing for a almost five years now, game lost its initial appear but I'm used to it and to this forum :)

Not sure why FM has changed the shading on the walls that BlueIndian pointed out but I’m guessing that they maybe getting a lot of complaints about lagging again. For myself, I don’t like the new look very much even if I really do like being able to place outside wall lamps above the ground floor w/o having to have a balcony. The light placement will hopefully help with how dark the yards are with just these tiny spots of brightness. I’m going to try some experiments tonight!
