Things™ Update

The moment has finally arrived! This latest game update includes a number of re-implemented objects and features, a bunch of bug fixes, and a whole new lighting and shadow system.

Advanced Lighting and Shadows
The game is looking even more amazing than before thanks to an entirely new lighting and shadow system. All light sources will now emit a glow and cause objects nearby to cast shadows. Also look for shadows during the day as the sun moves over the sky, changing the position of the shadows.

Graphics Options
A few game options have been added to help those experiencing slow performance on older machines. You can now disable FreeSO Lighting, City Shadows and turn off the display of surrounding lots. Click on Options mode then Graphics Options to access these settings.

Relationship Web
The relationship web has been completely re-imagined! No longer do you have to wait for a humongous, mostly useless web to open. All your relationships can be viewed in a simple list format and easily sorted by Friends, Enemies, Almost-Friends, Almost-Enemies and Roommates. You can even search for a particular Sim in the list using the search tool.

Friendship Web
The New Friendship Web

The Architect continues to work away on implementing more plugins (a special interface that many of the objects made specifically for TSO use). This update brings us:
Other Features / Bug Fixes
In addition to the main additions above, here are some other features and bug fixes you can find:
  • Money you earn from or spend on objects now appears above your head
  • Owners can set the name of their clothing racks
  • Room score will now calculate properly outside
  • Server administrators now have a MOMI badge on their Sim thumbnail
  • Roomates can now join lots that are full
  • Pizza payout has been slightly improved
  • Inactive Sims will now be disconnected after 15 minutes (with a 5 minute warning which can be dismissed)
  • Various other lag and object issues have been addressed
