Items Seen In Homes and Wonder!

QUESTION:

Have you ever seen items in another sims homes (example: Like seeing a microphone in a backyard of a house), and wonder where or how they got it?

I have friends on my list and I have seen things such as a dance floor, microphones, etc in houses with other things I have never seen before in the store. So I was wondering if other sim layers have seen unusual things in other sim houses, or is it a glitch in the game?

It would be nice to have things like that as part of the game, and if they are already there ..... then where can we find them in the shopping folder?

    The items that you mention are party items. You get to place them for free when you host a certain party.

    I have mentioned in another tread that I have seem a hamster cage with a cute hamster. I suspect it is from the new unexpected choises, (to be bought with 2000 simcash!!!) but not 100% sure .

    Those items are for certain parties as mentioned above. You must throw a birthday party first before you can throw other parties. Once you start the party go to furniture and click on the balloon section. They give you items to place activities for the party. You need to make sure you have enough room to place all the items. The items will disappear from your lot once the party is over

    you will get the dance floor and mic , etc when you have a Wedding Party or concert party

    @joysie EA added mini games to the sims mobile. You will get pop ups randomly. The fish tank, hamster will cost sim cash if you want it and get the offer in a mini game .

    Yes those. Pay up sims cash, cupcakes or take the negative consequence . I got the 2000 hot tube offer :s , The rest I have gotten is job or hobby related. Pay sims cash or cupcakes for extra game points or take the negative consequence of another sim being sad/mad or the sim can get sick :/

    PS no offers to use sim coins!!! This means that anyone who does not buy sims cash can forget ever getting the hot tub, pets ect!

    I hate the negative consequences! I find myself using the cupcake option just so my sims don't feel sad/sick/angry or whatever. I hate it! Not that I feel attached to my sims in this game but being a long time simmer I don't like the idea of them feeling sad/sick/whatever even if the consequences are not so apparent since I just set them on their next task and then don't load again until later in the day.

    I did get the hedgehog (I think it was a hedgehog at least) recently and it wasn't too expensive - around 200 simcash - but I just wish the surprise options would just disappear.

    They come from the Suprising Choices. One is refered to a Hedgehog Enclosure and the other an Aquarium. The Suprising Choice theme is Animal Lover looking for homes for these pets. If you do choose to purchase it neither my Hedgehog Enclosure or Aquarium came with the associated animal or fish just the container, so unless I’m doing something wrong, I feel a bit cheated. And the Aquarium is HUGE it’s gonna need a lot of floor space

    Did you get a Hedgehog with the Enclosure, because I did not.. I’m feeling a bit cheated. Ditto for the Aquarium

    @Guinevere530 I did get the hedgehog with an enclosure. It had popped up several times and finally got sick of it and bought it.

    I would love to get the hedgehog and fish tank, but I have never had these surprising choices in my game. (Got every other one, though.) If you got the pet items, could you please post what action you were doing when the choices came up?
  • Snowdrop18Snowdrop18 Posts: 18 Member
    The “Surprising Choice” alternatives feel more like extortion, pay us or suffer. Never a positive outcome. Who has $200.00 in cash on hand for any item, no matter how great it is? How about something like “make 5 new friends and receive a new Izzy outfit.”

    I rarely take them anymore I took the fish tank and I’m not loving it anywhere in my house I finally just put it in a kids room... My Sims actually do get angry for a while but it doesn’t affect gameplay if anyone is wondering about that aspect of it as I know I was when I first saw that would be what would happen if I didn’t “pay up”.

    Other ones as long as you have enough jobs or relationships or whatever to make it worthwhile are OK usually only 10% but today I got one where all my sims received 40% more matter what type of quest relationship etc. they were involved and that one for one cupcake was definitely worth it lasted for about four hours !
