Without sim9 making new things fast, this game WILL die....sim you not making something is making people leave, here is what you need to do:
1-Update the dang megamap already...People have been waiting for you to do this for the longest time, and it can't be that hard...people want to see what they have doneon this to see the way it looks, the megamap updating should be a monthly thing, maybe even weekly, and you don't do it. Without people seeing what they did easily they will probably build less, get bored, and leave.
2-Make new blocks.... People have been asking for this for a long time, people getting more interested (old and new people) is a good thing because they won't get bored and will have new types of various things. It might not bring new people more than often, but it will keep more people on, meaning if more people keep on then the number will grow. You might think "Hey i want some good ideas," Well here is some ideas.
(idea a)New doors-i don't like the color orange and it doesn't go with other looks of houses. A good way is to make 1 dark brown door and 1 glass door, but not blue glass, a clear uncolored glass
(idea b)New building blocks-Some people want their things to look more original, but that is kind of impossible when all ideas are used. Try having more color plastic like white, black, and more bright colors. Another type of block you can add is as simple as new types of wood. a dark wood, a lighter one, just more wood then this. Another can be Metal looking blocks, maybe grey with tiny screw looking pixels in the corners, it will look very nice. If you want more suggestion on blocks just look at other post and you will get a ton.
(idea c)Make more uses for blocks. You can make wood on an oven makes an oven fast or something. I don't know but there are many other ideas
3-New clothes...People are looking too alike and are starting to get bored of looking the same, just make a few more things of clothes...and when you make clothes that cost plat/a ton of goldnot many people will get them at all, so people will get even more bored
4-Maybe some more events? In the summer there are not many holidays so people get bored. An event will attract people to the game and stay on the game
There are some ideas sim9. Do you know why people leave? Because you don't do much....people like thegreatonion, kjh787, starmanfan, and many others left the game will come back because you haven't done anything. This is the one chance you have, so please do it while you can. And the only reason problems have started is this. When people get bored what do they do? The act bad. Sorry this message is long but i had to say something.
