That sounds annoying. The main problem I have with FreePlay is that it can take forever to do things. Some tasks take an unrealistically long time to do things! I also hate how you can’t opt out of SimChase, and if you do participate it’s practically impossible to win. I sound like I’m currently playing the game but I deleted the app ages ago and haven’t played for a long time. The Sims are also kinda ugly and there’s very little customisation, Sims all end up looking very similar.

I have the same issue with the “try costumes” action. Four weeks ago the help desk answered my issue, saying they were aware of the problem, ohers also had the problem and it would be fixed shortly. Please define “shortly”. One update has come and gone and issue still present
Tales From The Myst
The Blue Moon Jukebox
But hopefully EA fixes this.
But here's the thing for me--I would not actually mind the occasional ad as long as it actually plays.-- And it doesn't. Everytime an ad wants to play, the screen stays black and it never does; the ad never loads. I legit waited about 15 minutes just to do the newspaper spin reward and the ad never played. So why have all these ads per minute when they won't even play?
I've played The Sims FreePlay since it began 10 years ago. While the salaries for the Sims and all other perks from planting and pets remains the same as they were 10 years ago, prices for any household item have become absurd. The truly extravagant item used to be the grandfather clock for a soaring 90,000 simoleans (€). Now every item from one dining room chair start starts at 100,000€ plus. There is a huge amount of my inventory where items cost 300,000€ to over 1,000,000€ each! This would be tenable if some of that increase in cost of items would have been reflected in ANY increase in Sim's income over the past 10 years. Yes, we can purchase simoleans at a hugely inflated price but we're is the game income? No increase in Sim's income sources in 10 years? Where is the fairness in this game??
Let's add on that the cost of Restocking for one Collection Challenge is now over $55.00! Again, doesn't this make The Sims FreePlay the most expensive in your Sims franchise now? I have loved playing this game for all 10 years and the earlier Sims World Adventure before that, but I believe this has become ludicrous. Such a shame.
I always loved the time the game takes. I think it adds a realistic touch, and it can give me a break from the game so I don’t get burnt out. But I absolutely despised not being to opt out of SimChase. And yes, Freeplay sims are too *sim*ilar. Lol.
The developers are aware of this and hope to have it fixed in the next update that should be out next week.
