Gameplay

In The Sims FreePlay, players build houses, control virtual people called Sims to satisfy their needs and wishes, and let them complete different kinds of actions to gain Simoleons, LifeStyle Points, Social Points (all three are currencies in the game), and XP. Unlike previous games in the franchise, The Sims FreePlay runs in real-time and takes real time to complete actions.[3] All actions must be instructed by players, unlike in the computer version, where Sims can have some degree of autonomy. Players can progress through 55 levels to unlock content and create up to 34 Sims. In the game, well now you don’t only need married sims can have children you only need an adult and there is a limit on the amount of allowable couples[citation needed] due to a limit on the people in the player's town. You also can’t change the sims body shape!However, if the player buys items off the online store, they become a VIP that will allow them to increase the number of sims they can have in their town. In the game, there are main quests(tasks can take hours/a day) and discovery quests. Whereas regular quests are required, the discovery quests are optional.Sims have to bake a cake to age unless you complete the life dreams and legacies quest!a cake takes 24hours and costs 5 Lifestyle points
