Free time patch update

April 7th, 2008 by mogway

MaxoidDrea explains on the bbs why the patch has been taken off:

Hi everyone,
We’ve temporarily removed the FreeTime patch. Too many of you were seeing installation errors when trying to install the patch. Rather than have more Simmers come across this problem, we’ve removed the patch until we can fix these issues. I hope to have an update for you shortly.

Thanks for your patience.
