Sims Free Play is a Cheat.
I played Sims Free Play some years ago and got up to a level 41; with 16 properties and 30+ Sims characters, including an enfant, a toddler, a preteen, a teenager, assorted adults of different ages and races, a dog, a cat, a puppy, a kitten, a bird, and four horses in a stable on an island. Two weeks ago I started it up again, and everything was there in the cloud for me to download to my tablet. I played all out for about two week trying to get a super yacht, setting my timers throughout the day to move the Sims along in the game tasks to win that prize.
But I kept running into the Sims game's cheats and blocks, bait-and-switches. It became obvious that I would be given the hull of the yacht but that the game timing would not let me do anything much with it. Today after I inadvertently deleted a favorite Sim instead of moving it to a desert hideaway which I had set up, I realized that the game does not relax me, it is now a serious stressor. So I saved the Sims back to the Cloud and uninstalled it from my tablet. If I ever get dumb and/or desperate for distraction again the Sims "game" will be there for me.
They say that "The Sims 4 has almost 36 million players..." Can anyone say "addicted"?
The following are fair-use screen captures of sims and properties I set up in the Sims game.
