Sure wish they'd put some time between new events. Maybe put one or more of the reruns between.

First time I've been highly underwhelmed by a SFP update. The 'Pool Bungalow' looks to be a giant let down - I was expecting more of a larger holiday home. I'm finally done with the overly-expensive items - FM, I've been holding out hope for you and praying you'd change your ways... And honestly, the events returning are ones that are repeated most of the time - bring the Love is Blinds event back FM!

The best thing about this update however is that the events returning are ones I've completed, which is a good thing in hindsight 'cause it means I won't be babysitting the game 24/7.

But honestly, I'm just so done with this game. It used to be a fun environment to turn to when real life wasn't great, but now it's just becoming a chore I don't want to be doing every single second of the day. It makes me feel completely drained mentally when the game practically forces you to pay attention to it. I just don't know how much longer I can take with...

Oooo, is that this past Christmas quest that I lost out on simply because the timer didn't update until I stepped away from my game?

The wardrobes have changed around! All the newer clothes and hairstyles are first and the older ones at the bottom. I like this change :D no more scrolling through the ancient clothes and hair to get to the ones you want.

The patio paving "grey slate" has been changed. The pool paving is still there.

It's mentioned at the article by EA already, that we now can build balconies above support posts without need of a house. (Need a second storey.) Of course you can't remove the support post then.

Only trouble is, you can't remove support posts that are placed below a normal balcony either. First remove the balcony, then the support post. Trying out different posts would become very expensive.

If there is a support post holding a balcony we can't delete the patio underneath the support post :roll: So, first remove the balcony above the support post, then delete or change the patio.

At the same home like in my above post.

The popup I got did not really say what's wrong. There was no sim using anything on that patio.

I saw some posts on FB that the rustic fireplace can't be placed. It does not jump to the wall like it used to do.
