Phew! That was a big one… Enjoy siblings and creating your own businesses.
If you do not receive your update straightaway, do not panic! Rollouts can take some time to reach you all.
We have added siblings! They can be accessed via the family menu, however direct interactions are lacking at the moment, but we will be updating this shortly.
Oh, also… An older sibling can defend you from bullies!
Create Your Own Business
We have added the new Business Owner career. You simply need to be 18 years old (or older) to access this career.
You can set up multiple companies, as long as you have money to use as an initial investment. You have the ability to create one product per year per company; name your product, set a price, set quantity. The price of your product multiplied by the quantity will equal the cost to your business to produce.
If your company is lacking funds, you can choose to search for investors to fill up your bank account. The chance of getting investment could depends on certain criteria.
You can also withdraw dividends each (10% of company value) each year, or sell your company should you wish to do so. When selling your company the game keeps it in memory and you have the ability to find a job at the company you created!
