The Sims Freeplay- Ice Sculpture Special Event

This new event unlocks the new Ice Sculpture hobby!

You have 10 days to complete the Ice Sculpture hobby 12 times to unlock all 12 ice themed packs, you get a pack each time you complete the hobby collection:

Out of the 12 packs there are to unlock, 11 of those were prizes in the Secret Winter Wonderland Christmas 2015 Quest. If you completed each part of that quest you will have unlocked all those prizes so you will only have to complete the collection once to unlock the last pack!

Confused about time limited hobby events? This video explains how they work:


How can you do this hobby?

Buy Ice Pedestals from the promotions r us store, you can buy 15 of these and the price increases each time you buy one:

  1. S1,000
  2. S1,100
  3. S1,300
  4. S1,900
  5. S2,500
  6. S9,000
  7. S20,000
  8. S35,000
  9. S50,000
  10. 8SPs
  11. 12SPs
  12. 18SPs
  13. 26SPs
  14. 32SPs
  15. 40SPs

Once you have brought an ice pedestal you can find it in the inventory under hobby and career items to place in a house:

Who can do this hobby?

Adult sims, you can have a maximum of 15 sims completing this at once.

What are the options?

  • Practice Sculpting- 5 hours 45 minutes
  • Conjure Masterpiece- 8 hours


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

(12 ICE SCULPTURES= 1 PACK)


TIPS FOR FINDING THEM ALL IN THE TIME LIMIT:

  • I would recommend having one sim doing the longest option to try and level up quicker while other sims can do the shorter option to find the collectibles for the levels you have currently unlocked.
  • Have more than one sim working on it- I have 9

  • Remember to click start new collection at the top of the ice sculpture collection list once you have got all of the collectibles, as shown in this post
  • Once you have completed the collection for the first time you can have all sims on the shortest option, as once you reach level 6 all the items will be unlocked so the shortest option will help you earn more collectibles in the time limit!
  • You can always use the lucky spin on a row if you are really struggling, this video shows you how the lucky spin works
  • 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 and this event will probably return if you don’t manage to complete it this time!

The Sims Freeplay- Hobbies: Aerobics

This hobby and the time limited Aerobics Event start as soon as you complete the A Grooving Guru Quest

The Aerobics Event has a time limit of 7 days, you have to complete the aerobics hobby collection 7 times in 7 days to unlock all the new activewear outfits (a collection means finding all 12 items in the hobby grid, not just one row!)
 
Who can do Aerobics?

Only adult sims, 15 sims can do this hobby

How can they do Aerobics?

Using an aerobics step after completing the a grooving guru quest

Where can they do Aerobics?

At the Health Hub and at home using aerobic steps from the promotions r us store, you can buy 14 aerobic steps, each time you buy the steps the price increases for the next one you buy:

  • 1st- S1,000
  • 2nd- S1,100
  • 3rd- S1,300
  • 4th- S2,500
  • 5th- S9,000
  • 6th- S20,000
  • 7th- S35,000
  • 8th- S50,000
  • 9th- 8SPs
  • 10th- 12SPs
  • 11th- 18SPs
  • 12th- 26SPs
  • 13th- 32SPs
  • 14th- 40SPs


Find them in your inventory under hobby and career items to place in your house:

What are the options?

Warm up- 4 hours 50 minutes

Shake it off- 6 hours 30 minutes

Why can you only use one of the steps at the Health Hub? The other 4 can be used but only for 10 minutes, its like the main sim is taking a class but those sims aren’t doing the hobby

What is the level up percentage for each option?

This may change in future updates

For example if you did the 4h50m option, you would need to do this 20 times or the 6h30m option 10 times to reach level 6.

NOTE: it says 160% but you will start at 0% at level 2

What are the levels?

  1. Arrthymic Amateur
  2. Isometric Initiate
  3. Fiery Feet
  4. Aerobic Adept
  5. Lyrca-clad Legend
  6. Stepping Sage

What do you win?

If you complete in the time limit you will unlock all 7 sets of activewear, so each time you complete the collection you will get one female adult and one male adult activewear outfit:

Once the event is over you will earn 2LPs for everytime you complete the collection.


 Tips for completing in the time limit

This one is not going to be easy! Trying to reach level 6 in the time is going to be hard enough without having to complete the collection 7 times!

  • I would recommend having one sim doing the longest option to try and level up quicker while other sims can do the shorter option to find the collectibles for the levels you have currently unlocked.
  • Have as many sims as you possible can completing this hobby event- I have 9, 8 at home and 1 at the health hub:

  • Remember to click start new collection at the top of the aerobics collection list once you have got all of the collectibles, as shown in this post
  • Once you have completed the collection for the first time you can have all sims on the shortest option, as once you reach level 6 all the items will be unlocked so the shortest option will help you earn more collectibles in the time limit!
  • You can always use the lucky spin on a row if you are really struggling, this video shows you how the lucky spin works

 

NOTE: I don’t know whether they will bring this back as a time limited hobby event one day if we don’t manage to complete it in the time limit but I really hope they do!

The Sims Freeplay- The Grooving Guru Quest

Early Access to Beta Provided by EA/ Firemonkeys


LEVEL: 9 TIME LIMIT: 7 days UNLOCKS: health hub and aerobics hobby PRIZE: activewear

New Year, New Sims! Get ready for the Health Hub! I’m so excited that there is now a sort of gym in town! The Grooving Guru is a NEW discovery quest that begins once you build the Health Hub, you can find the health hub next to the pet salon:


You cannot complete this quest at the same time as any other discovery quest

Once you have built the Health Hub the quest and time limit will begin, if you complete this quest in the time limit you will unlock activewear outfits for your adult sims! You can still complete this quest if you don’t finish it in the time limit, you just won’t win the outfits.

How long does this quest take to complete?

Times may vary depending on the star rating an item has 

  • Visit Health Hub

  • Research Gym Etiquette- 5 minutes (computer)

  • Train on the cross trainer- 5 hours 40 minutes

  • Clean up the kitchen- you need to clean up 3 things:

  1. Broken tiles- 5 hours 45 minutes
  2. Trash- 5 hours 15 minutes
  3. Leaky Roof- 10 hours 25 minutes

TIP: have two sims at the health hub so you can clean up the trash and tiles at the same time, you can’t fix the roof until the trash is out of the way!

  • Refresh with a drink- 5 minutes (fridge)

  • Watch ‘Barry’s fitness bonanza’- 1 hour 12 minutes

  • Kick over a trashcan- 2 seconds (if the trashcan has already been knocked over, clean it up and then you will get this option)

  • Investigate the music (go to the park)
  • Meet the dancing man- 5 minutes

  • Dance with Skippy- 2 hours 30 minutes

  • Tell Skippy the time- 6 hours 15 minutes

  • Snore in bed- 9 hours

  • Revisit the health hub
  • Set up new machine- you need to unpack two boxes- 19 hours 45 minutes each (get two sims to unpack these at the same time)

  • Use the rowing machine- 25 minutes

  • Flex for a neighbour- 5 minutes (select the interaction between two sims)

  • Call Skippy on the phone- 6 hours

  • Sleep fitfully in bed- 12 hours

  • Send dance party invitations- 5 minutes

  • Have a dance party- 8 hours 30 minutes (it doesn’t actually say how many sims you need for this but its not a party with one person so I had two sims doing this, one selected dance party and the other join in)

  • Ask Skippy for advice- 5 minutes

  • Comfort Skippy- 1 hour 15 minutes

  • Agree to help Skippy- 13 hours 15 minutes

  • Return to the health hub
  • Help set up the aerobics space- you need to clean up 3 things:

  1. Leaky roof- 10 hours 25 minutes
  2. 2 Packing boxes- 19 hours 45 minutes each

TIP: have 3 sims completing this task at the same time!

  • Say farewell to Skippy- 5 minutes

QUEST IS COMPLETE!

Once you complete this quest the Aerobics Event will begin, there is a time limit of 7 days and each time you complete the hobby collection you will earn another activewear outfit for your male and female adult sims- there are 7 packs to earn. I’m not sure why there is a time limited hobby event as soon as we unlock the new Aerobics hobby- usually when we unlock a new hobby we just have to complete it once in a time limit to earn an extra prize so this may be difficult! The post can be found here


Prize: Activewear

Where can I find it? In the wardrobe, under outfits for a male and female adult sims

Cost: Free

Is it worth it? I always love new clothes but if you don’t manage to complete in the time limit don’t worry as you can earn more activewear in the aerobics hobby event!

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

 

If I’m on the last task helping a courier will he stay if the time runs out?

Yes he will stay there and you will earn your token!

Thanks for reading!

The Sims Freeplay- The Charming Barber Hair Event

THIS EVENT IS NOW OVER!

This is a BRAND NEW time limited hobby event which unlocks NEW hairstyles for MALE sims!

You have 7 days to complete the fashion designer hobby 8 times to unlock all 8 new male hairstyles! You get a new hairstyle each time you complete the collection (find all 12 fashion items), once you unlock a hairstyle you get to keep it even if you don’t find them all. If you have never done the fashion designer hobby click here for details.

Confused about time limited hobby events? This video explains how they work:

You need to buy a fashion studio from the promotions r us store to complete this hobby

If you already have a sim as a level 6 fashion designer (or previous have completed this hobby) then you will complete this a lot quicker as you aren’t waiting for all the designs to become unlocked. Then you can do the 10 minute option over and over!

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.


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

(12 FASHION ITEMS= 1 HAIRSTYLE)


TIPS FOR FINDING THEM ALL IN THE TIME LIMIT:

-have more than one sim working on it- you can buy as many fashion studios as you want!
-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 as you will already be able to find all the items)
-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.
