Sims Mobile released an update that introduces the latest Modern Luxe content. Compared to the usual updates this one is rather small, but continues to be significant as it gives players a way to make their homes more modern. There are also new features, events, and even an increase in the level cap.

Object Rotation

The Sims Mobile revealed that with the update, players can now experience the 45-degree rotate feature when in Build Mode. The default has been a 90-degree rotation, but this addition is sure to result in more creative designs. While the new feature does work on many of the objects, it doesn't include objects that are wall-snapped or wall-placed.

Level Cap

The level cap has been increased to 60 from 50. This means that there's 10 new levels for everyone to enjoy. The method of getting XP remains the same and players get rewards of five SimCash and 10 Luxe Life tickets from level 50 onwards.

New Events

The update also includes three new events. The first is the ‘Modern Luxe’ Sweet Treat Showdown which starts tomorrow, March 17. This 10-day event has a lot of rewards that are sure to make your homes even more contemporary. These include:

  • Grand Prizes
    • Floating fireplace
    • Water feature
    • Female hair
      • long large waves
    • Male hair
      • clean and parted

The second set of events are the Wumples Wishlist Quests. For this one, Wumples is vising The Sims Freeplay and is offering two seven-day Wishlist Quests. The first starts March 20 and lets players unlock the Kids soccer table light, rabbit painting and Fashion Gems. The second set of quests arrive on March 31 and includes the Ceramic rabbit, ceramic rooster and Fashion Gems as rewards.
