Do the creators honestly think we're made out of money or something?! I haven't got that or time to grind to pay for this! :x

(For those who haven't built the Nightclub, it's automatically built for you in this update).

My Kindle wouldn't show update although it was on my phone. I saved to cloud, deleted and reinstalled SFP and reloaded my game. It was then the updated version.

I have a problem with the update on my iPhone but not my iPad. My phone isn't showing any of the Architect homes now, but I can see them on my iPad. I tried saving on my iPad and then downloading on my phone but that didn't change anything. Anyone else have this problem or is it just my device?

Hang in there, they should show up soon. This often happens to people after an update.

Anyone who's close to the end of a pregnancy quest might want to hold off updating until they've finished. I was half way through one and well on track, but after the update the support task meter drained from 50 something % to zero. :( Not only that but the new support task became 'have 18 sims share parenting advice' (never had it be that many before) and this morning when I logged in after having 15 sims share, the necessary number had jumped to 20!

In other news if I want to do the cars in lot's quest from the night club it will cost my sims 8,099,999 simoleons :shock: is this typical?

I had the same problem on my iPhone. But I have 2 devices so I saved on my iPad and then deleted my game off the iPhone then loaded it back on the iPhone and then downloaded my saved game and then it was fine and I can see the Architect tab on the phone again.

Since the update, I'm having trouble getting my sims to use certain stairs. In 1 house, they can go between 1st and 2nd floors, but not to the 3rd. When I take the upper stairs down to the lower floor they can use it normally, so it's not the specific set of stairs. They could access the 3rd floor when I tried using a fire pole.

In my swimming / event lot, they won't use the stairs to the basement where the pottery tables are located. I was finally able to get them down there 1 at a time using an elevator. I have used these same lots forever with no problems before now. Very frustrating!
