I noticed that FreeRealEstate on turns on but doesn't work. Started a new save file, with the Pancake household (with Iggy from the gallery).

OK, that is disgusting on EA's part (reading the response back from someone contacting help) but I don't know why I expected anything different. I'm over it. If I had known I would not of bought Seasons. I use no mods and I'm having the issue of having to resetSim so many times its not funny and of course the cheats not working (typing resetsim works though). This is why cheats which have always been a big part of the sims are needed so we can fix our damned games.

FreeRealEstate works fine for me. I had to enter it twice though but that could be cause I entered it, then went to CAS to create new family an then had to enter again.

 

Did you also try an existing save ?

Do you know how long it will take to fix the skills cheats? Since the update the cheat just doesn't work at all.

I have found that I sometimes need to turn cheats on again then use freerealestate for it to work.

Haven't played since the update/cheats problem.

Not much fun very tedious having the characters go level by level.

No time for social interaction when reading or physically gaining skill levels.

Have EA Games tech staff seen a depressed Sim? Not a pretty thing to view

Might as well stare at the sun for a while.

Before the update one day I buy living city and get together and after update I feel boring because I can’t level up skills for the sim 🙂💔

I just got out of a chat with someone at EA and they have pretty much said it's not going to be a big priority for them as they "Don't normally support cheats" and just as i was replying the adviser disconnected the chat! this may a problem that lasts for a while. it's like EA don't acknowledge the fact that around 90% of sims users use cheats at some point during the game play. I could understand this issue being low down on a list if the game was some how being manipulated in regards to online play but the sims has had this feature since the original game! i hope and expect that this problem is going to cause sales to drop in their next expansion pack launches if the cheats haven't been fixed by then. poor show 


PEOPLE NEED to start reporting the in-game bugs the June 19th update caused in-game and not worry about the cheats so much. IF we can get those fixed 1st and worry about cheats later. More in likely EA will NOT fix the cheat issue as WHY would they care if players can "cheat" playing their game in the first place.
