The Sims Freeplay- Simtown Market

The simtown market has been added to the October 2016 update of the sims freeplay. If you have finished upgrading all the workstations at a profession workplace and have been wondering if there is any point in sending your sims to work to collect resources or if you have reached your limit on the resources you can store, and find it a waste just to sell them- then this update is for you!

The simtown market allows you to use these spare resources to earn prizes! You earn market points by shipping market orders (these orders are made from resources, for example, you may be asked to ship 1 coffee and 2 popcorns) The more orders you ship, the more market points you earn, meaning the more prizes you will unlock!

The more developed your workplace is (the more workstations you have built/upgraded) the more market points you will earn as you will receive a bonus %

Couriers appear at the workplace and they need to be helped by a sim who works in that profession. Like helping a normal sim in this profession, when you complete all the tasks and help the courier you earn market tokens but there is a time limit in which you will need to help them in otherwise they will leave and you won’t receive the tokens.

NOTE: it costs SPs to speed up helping the courier- not LPs

Shipping tokens earns you a lot more points than shipping normal resources but you can only store 3 per event so you have to use them to collect more!

 

Simtown Market Tutorial– completing the tutorial unlocks access to regular special events, allowing you to earn prizes you previously missed out on or completely new prizes!

NOTE: you cannot start the tutorial until there is an event available- check in your goal tab to see if an event has started or is coming soon!

  • View the Simtown market (go to the Movie Studio (this may be a different profession workplace if you complete this tutorial during a different event) and click on the symbol of the person holding a parcel)

  • Complete a market order (again view the simtown market and click on a box and select ship order)

  • View the workplace overview (this is the button in the left hand corner of your screen while you are at the movie studio)

  • Start helping a courier- the courier will arrive at the movie studio:


(a sim needs to be working at the studio to be able to help the courier- the same way you help other sims at a profession workplace)

  • Spend a market token (go to the simtown market again, click on the box and select ship order)

TUTORIAL IS COMPLETE!

 

 

Special Events- I am not going to be creating a post each time a new one is released as I believe they will all work in the same way

All you need to do is ship market orders and earn market points to fill up the bar in the time limit. Each time you reach a line on the bar you will receive a prize! The green is your current progress towards the prizes.

Most of the prizes are different for everyone as it depends what you have already unlocked but the grand prize is a new item so that is probably the same for everyone!

If you have completed all the current orders you will need to wait 30 minutes for new ones to appear or skip waiting for 10SPs- you can also unlock new slots for SPs!
 

Currently I am still upgrading my workstations so I probably won’t be using this too much unless I cannot collect new items without selling my resources but I think it is a great idea!

Time Extension Event- this works the same as the other events but instead of just using resources from one profession you can ship resources from all professions and the grand prize for completing this is a time extension which can be used if you run out of time on a quest or hobby- previously only available as a VIP perk

The Sims Freeplay- Long Hair Event

The event for long hair is back yet again- get completing now if you haven’t already!

It is for all those players who didn’t manage to complete it before or who weren’t playing when this event was previously available (if you completed this before you will not get this event again)

This event unlocks long hair! To get all 9 long hairstyles you need to complete the fashion designer hobby collection 9 times in 7 days! You get a new hairstyle at random each time you complete the collection (find all 12 fashion pieces), once you unlock a hairstyle you get to keep it even if you don’t find them all. This post shows you what the hairstyles all look like.

If you have never done the fashion designer hobby click here for details.

 

If you already have a sim as a level 6 fashion designer (or previous have) then you will complete this a lot quicker as you aren’t waiting for all the designs to become unlocked.

It is really helpful to have loads of sims doing the hobby, and have them doing the 10 minute option over and over if possible!

I also have them all in one house so I can put them all on at roughly the same time (I just find it easier that way, you don’t have to do that)
20140821-164936.jpg

You need to firstly accept this quest, it will remove the fashion designs you have already created from the collection so you don’t get a head start.


If you say no you can start it from the active tasks tab, you will not get any extra time if you start this late.

 

IF YOU FOUND SOME OF THE HAIRSTYLES LAST TIME YOU WILL START FROM WHERE YOU GOT TO, IF YOU COMPLETED IT YOU WILL NOT GET THIS EVENT AGAIN

YOU NEED TO COMPLETE ALL FOUR ROWS TO GET ONE HAIRSTYLE!!


TIPS FOR FINDING THEM ALL IN THE TIME LIMIT:

-have more than one sim working on it, I have 5
-if you can, do the 10 minute option over and over, you will find the most designs this way
-have at least one sim at level 6 or working on getting to level 6 (maybe do one of the longest options) so all designs are unlocked (if you already completed the collection before you only need to do the 10 minute option)
-remember to click start new collection at the top of the fashion hobby collections list once you have got all the pieces, as shown in this post
-most importantly: just keep going! I know it’s annoying when you get the same one constantly but you will eventually get the ones you need.
