The Sims Freeplay- French Romance Live Event

Early Access to Beta Provided by EA/ Firemonkeys- may differ from actual version

THIS EVENT IS NOW OVER


ONCE THE 12 DAY TIME LIMIT IS UP YOU WILL HAVE 3 DAYS TO PURCHASE ANY PACKS YOU HAVE LEFT you will not be able to collect anymore arts and crafts items or coins, you have to use the resources you have, if you don’t have enough resources all you can do is use social points to buy the requirements or wait until the event returns!


 This is a new type of event called a live event- it is very similar to a community event but this time you don’t need help from everyone who plays the sims freeplay to unlock the prizes, there are only personal prizes this time! You firstly need to update your game for this event to appear

This event is only here for 12 days and the aim of it is to collect enough arts and crafts items from the arts and crafts stations (found in the event tab of buy mode) to unlock all the items in this event

 

NOTE: this post was created using the early access version of the game- things may be different in the actual version so I will be updating this post as I complete the event!

 

Place a crafting station (find the candle station in the events tab of buy mode- you can only buy 4)

Make some arts and crafts items (click on the candle station to make)- 23 seconds

This takes you to the prize progress tab (you can get to it by clicking on the french romance heart event button in the corner of the screen)

Here you will see you have collected enough items to unlock the mood lighting! You will still need to buy the pack with the items before they will be available in your home store- which is one of the goals coming up! (keep reading for information on all prizes!)

Restock a crafting station (when the stock runs out you will have to restock before you can make anymore arts and crafts items)- You can restock instantly for 14 uses for 10SPs or restock for 2 uses which will take 10 seconds this time

Buy the mood lighting pack (click on the french romance event button, scroll down and click purchase- this will cost you 50 candles)

Use a coin flower patch (buy the coin flower patch from the event tab and select the spin plant option)

Check the daily goals (click on the french romance event button and find the daily goals tab- claim the ones you can!

Remember to claim your rewards each day!
 

Collect bonuses (while collecting after a certain amount of time you will see the arts and crafts item appear above that sims head, click to collect the bonus item!)

Continue collecting arts and crafts items- this is the last step but the event is not over, keep collecting the arts and crafts to unlock everything!

If you want to speed up a collecting arts and crafts action it will cost you SPs, you will get the bonus gems as well if you speed it up!

Stuck on these tasks? Watch my video here:

  • Restock 14 uses which happens instantly but will cost you 10SPs

or

  • Restock 7 uses which will take you 2 hours 30 minutes but will be free

NOTE:

  • if you store the station you will lose all the stock so when you place it again you will need to restock
  • if you cancel making something using a station you will lose that stock so if you had one stock left and then you cancelled that action you would need to restock before you can create anymore arts and crafts items

Your Progress:

Click the heart button in the top corner of your game to see your progress

House Tour Video- French Chateau:

 

I am sooooo in love with this château! How beautiful is it?! 🙂 I really hope I complete this event to win it!

Good Luck Everyone!


Constructor Coins

You earn constructor coins by:

Personal Progress prizes

Completing Daily Goals

Coin Plant Patches

Earning Construtor Coins? Previously on these events I used social points on the Mega Spin Plant to win constructor points. I earn social points by completing the cooking hobby and earning LPs, I can then turn the LPs into SPs using the social point plant on a normal garden patch- this was when it cost 5LPs- the social point plant now costs 20LPs so you may want to try the option below first instead:

Or you can use 450 candles for the Spin Plant (a good way to use up any spare candles) which will also earn you constructor coins but the amounts are less than they are from the Mega Spin Plant


Laura Craft? You may have noticed at the front of one of your houses there is a board with a bubble of a person holding arts and crafts items above it, this is Laura Craft, you can buy her for real money to help you complete the event. When you buy her, you select the item you want her to make from the options: 480 candles,  720 pottery, 1080 jewelry or  1190 glassware (the amounts seem to differ for most of you and I have no idea why that is!) (you will unlock all the options once you have unlocked all the stations) and you will be able to collect them after 8 hours.

Thank you for everyone who let me know what Laura Craft does!

Do I think she is worth it? Definitely not! If she made constructor coins too then maybe but I’m really struggling to see how she is a good investment- even if I could afford her! I am actually shocked at how many people brought her before even knowing what she did!!

 

THIS EVENT IS NOW OVER

Once the event is over you earn simoleons for any of the resources you have left over which is quite a nice surprise!

The Sims Freeplay- Ice Sculpture Special Event

THIS EVENT IS NOW OVER!


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!

Thanks for reading!
