The Sims Freeplay- Tropical Romance Island Community Event

THIS EVENT IS NOW OVER!


ONCE THE 14 DAY TIME LIMIT IS UP YOU WILL HAVE 2 DAYS TO BUILD ANY AREAS YOU HAVE LEFT– you will not be able to collect anymore fruit 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 the second time this community event has been available, it is only here for 14 days and the aim of it is to collect enough fruit from special new plants (found in the event tab of buy mode) to unlock the Tropical Romance Island and build all the places on the island.

If you completed it last time you will not get this again as you have already unlocked all the prizes. If you started it last time but didn’t complete it you will start from where you got to, so you will only have to collect enough resources to build the places you have left.

The community part of this event is, the fruit everyone collects (you do not need neighbours this is everyone who plays the games progress) is added together and we unlock new items when we have collected so much

 

There are a few goals to complete first that show you how this event works:

Plant a banana tree (find the banana tree in the events tab of buy mode and place in one of your sims gardens- first one is free) 
Collect some fruit- 12 seconds (click on banana tree)

This will take you to the personal progress tab in the island event progress button that can be found in the corner of the screen:image
 Here you will see you have unlocked the island ticket!

Buy tropical romance island ticket- go back to the personal progress tab and click purchase on the island ticket 
Visit the tropical romance island (click on the boat in simtown and select tropical romance island)

NOTE: you will see two destinations on the boat, if the Magical Rainforest is locked then you will have to wait for them to bring that community event back again before you can go there but you can still access the Tropical Romance Island for this event!

Use the event spin flower (buy the coin flower patch from the event tab and select the spin flower option, the first time is free, after that it will cost you 450 bananas)

Check the community progress (click on the island event button and find the community tab)

Check the daily goals (click on the island 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 fruit appear above that sims head, click to collect bonus fruit!)

Continue collecting fruit- this is the last step but the event is not over, keep collecting fruit to unlock everything on the island!

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

Your Progress:image

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

Daily Goals

Check on the first tab every day because if you complete all the daily goals you will get additional rewards

NOTE: remember to click CLAIM once you have completed a daily goal to collect the reward and remember to claim your free constructor coin and free bananas each day!


How do I claim or buy a prize to complete a daily goal?

You need to buy one of the personal progress items that you have unlocked (once you have all the flowers and constructor coins needed for it you can click purchase) or on a community prize you click claim to complete this

TIP: if you have already claimed or brought a prize that day maybe wait until the next just incase you don’t have enough fruit or coins to buy or there isn’t one to claim the next day, this way you will still be able to complete all the goals and earn your bonus constructor coins!

Personal Progress

The personal progress is how far you have got on this event, the more fruit you collect the more places on the tropical island you can unlock and build.

NOTE: the bar at the top of the personal progress tab shows you how close you are to unlocking an item, the more fruit you collect the more the bar will fill up. Once you have unlocked an item on the bar at the top you will be able to use the fruit you have collected and constructor coins to purchase that place on the tropical romance island.

Personal Progress Items and Places to unlock by collecting fruit 

Some pictures and information are from the previous time this event was available, I will be updating as I unlock each item

Constructor Coins

You earn constructor coins by:

Personal Progress prizes

Community Progress prizes

Coin Flower Patch

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 bananas on the Spin Plant (a good way to use up any spare bananas) which will earn you constructor coins but you will earn less than you earn using the Mega Spin Plant


ONCE THE 14 DAY TIME LIMIT IS UP YOU WILL HAVE 2 DAYS TO BUILD ANY AREAS YOU HAVE LEFT– you will not be able to collect anymore fruit 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!


Once the event is over you will earn simoleons for any resources you have left over:

The Sims Freeplay- Ageing UPDATE!

A few people have asked me about this so I thought I would make a post just to explain the latest change with the ageing.

As you probably know by now, once you complete the Life Dreams and Legacies Quest your sims will begin to age automatically. Previously once the circle that appears around their face was full and red you needed to either age them to the next life stage or use LPs to reverse them back to the beginning of the life stage they are currently at.

For example, if your adult sim was ready to age you would have had to make them a senior for free or use LPs to reverse them back to the beginning of their adult stage.

 

Now, instead of costing LPs you can reverse your sims back to the beginning of their life stage for FREE!

How does it work? To reverse their age all you need to do is wait until their time is up and the birthday cake appears above their head. Click on the birthday cake and the growing older pop up will appear, just click NO if you do not want them to age. It will then ask you if you are sure you want to reset them to the beginning of that life stage, click yes if you do. Once you click yes the circle around their face on the simtracker will be empty ready for them to start ageing again!
This change is a great move as I know a lot of people were using far too many LPs to keep their sims at the age they currently are- mostly so they can complete events! Although it does sort of make earning platinum orbs to pause your sims at their current life stage a bit pointless!

How many times can you reverse them? It seems like you can do this as many times as you want!

NOTE: I don’t know if this is a permanent change but lets hope so!

Thanks for reading!

The Sims Freeplay- Chocolate Lover’s Carnival Event

THIS EVENT IS NOW OVER!


This is a brand new time limited hobby event that is only available for 8 days, complete this hobby event to unlock carnival outfits for adult sims. There are 6 packs to unlock so you will need to complete the chocolatier hobby collection 6 times in the time limit to unlock all the outfits:

The chocolatier hobby post can be found here if you have never done this hobby before!
I won’t be completing this event myself as I have a lot going on right now.

You need to firstly accept this event, click yes then you can buy a chocolatier bench from the promotions r us store (you can buy 4 for 500 then the price increases each time, you can have a maximum of 15 or 19 if you already brought 4 previously)

Then it can be found in your inventory under hobby and career items so you can place it in your house:


12 CHOCOLATES= 1 CARNIVAL OUTFIT PACK


TIPS FOR FINDING THEM ALL IN THE TIME LIMIT:

-buy as many chocolatier benches as possible to have as many sims as you can working on it

-you can have a sim in a neighbours town working on it too if you don’t want to buy anymore benches!

-have at least one sim working on getting to level 6 so all chocolates are unlocked (you only need one sim to reach level 6) you may need to use LPs to speed your way through the levels- I waited until the time was 1 hour 59 minutes and used 1 LP to speed up one sim so they reached level 6

-if you do want to speed it up, wait at least 15 minutes until the timer is 2 hours 59 minutes or below then it will only cost you 2LPs instead of 3! This post may help if you want a quick way to earn LPs.

-remember to click start new collection on the top of the hobby collection list once you have got all the pieces otherwise you won’t find any new items, this post tells you how to do that.

-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 remember these events always come back so don’t worry if you don’t complete it this time!


PRIZES

You can find the outfits for free in the wardrobe for adult sims, each pack contains one outfit for a female adult and one outfit for a male adult

The Sims Freeplay- Impossible Events Aren’t Fun!

I was desperate to get the French Chateau and even though I played day and night I still was unable to complete it in the time limit 😦 I’ve noticed this has been a pattern for some time now; I couldn’t complete the Christmas event, I couldn’t complete the Ice Sculpture event, I couldn’t complete the Aerobics event but I have not changed how I play the game!

And I am not the only one who has noticed this. Holly on the French Romance Event:screenshot-2017-02-12-at-15-56-04


I need 184 social points to buy the requirements for one last pack to complete this event, do I have that many? Not a chance! Maybe if they didn’t up the price of the social point flower to 20LPs from 5 I would have used my LPs on that but that is no longer fair..

 

BUT I am happy you can now pause the ageing of your sims for free so you don’t end up losing all your sims during these events (I really hope this feature is sticking around!) Explained here

 

The Aerobics event is probably the worst one so far- that was completely impossible! (something to look forward to if you haven’t done this one yet!) You have 7 days to firstly reach level 6 in the hobby to be able to complete it AND also complete the collection 7 times in those 7 days?! I know most people had a similar experience to me with this one, I managed to complete it twice but only because I used a lucky spin to get the level 6 one I needed while my sim was still on level 5. It took 6 days to reach level 6 so I basically had one day to complete the collection 7 times! I’m not a big fan of hobby events as soon as you unlock a new hobby but at least on previous ones we only had to complete the collection once in the time as well as level up which was manageable.

Jenn on the Aerobics hobby:screenshot-2017-02-12-at-15-53-59


I know it comes down to making money at the end of the day which they need to do but I think spending money should make it easier to complete, not make it possible! I can’t afford to spend a lot of money on this game- I am a poor student after all! £5 for Laura Craft?! I wish I had £5 to spend on lunch!

And yes I also know they bring these events back but the game stops being enjoyable when you fail every event- is there any point in trying when the odds are against you?

What do you all think?
