Whims - It's now a toggle switch in gameplay options.
« on: November 13, 2018, 11:32:11 PM »
There are no longer any whims appearing after I applied the patch. I repaired the game to no avail. Is this a bug?

Whims are gone for me, too.

I found what the issue might be.

It's now a toggle switch in gameplay options.



When in Live mode, go to Gameplay options and turn it on if you want to see your Sim's whims. At the moment, it is turned off by default.

I went into game last night after seeing gjammer's post and noticed I didn't have any whims either. I was like that's really odd. Got a pm from Play saying something about their being an off/on switch for whims. So I went back in game, and checked the gameplay options to find it does have an off/on switch and it was turned off.

I don't know if this was switch was explained in any of the twitch streams or twitter.

The Whims Switch is mentioned as a single line in the official patch notes - by what I saw. That's probably it.

Will the recent patch notes be posted in our forum?
Or did I miss them?

No need to post the notes on the forum, you can read them from EA Help:

Glad you guys sorted out the 'missing' whims. I knew I wouldn't be able to be on-line to post the info in time...but how weird is it that we now have a toggle (game play option) for whims? Such a strange move on the devs to put this choice in the game I think.  ??? Even more odd that it is set to 'off' as default.

And they did a great job communicating this change as well. Only after they had had tons of bug reports did they give a heads up.

lol, that's pretty standard really. It's been this way on many changes that we all thought were bugs etc, some of them turned out to be complete nerfs which is even worse!  :-\

Whew! I panicked for a moment there because my Sim's whims went missing, too! I'm glad I read this thread!
