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.

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?

  1. Am i the only one that finds the long hair event impossible? I have four sims working 10 minute designs on it for around 14 hours now and i still only got 3 designs over and over.. am i doing smth wrong? pls help i REALLY want the hairs

    • Have you got a sim at level 6 in the fashion designer hobby yet? If not you won’t be able to complete the collection, do a longer option to level your sim up faster to level 6 to be able to unlock all of the fashion designs to complete the collection.

  2. I TOTALLY AGREEEEE. What’s the point of creating an event if the players can’t enjoy the prizes?

  3. I stored some of my crafting stations in my inventory & now I can’t find them. Where are they?

    • They should be in the event items tab of your inventory but did you definitely store them? You might have left them at a house if you cannot find them. If you click on the craft station in your event tab you will get the option to find your station, it will take you to the house where your stations can be found if you have left them out.

  4. I am on the French Romance live event and working super hard to win the French Chanteau mansion. I have actually spent real money purchasing SP’s to finish faster. I have purchased as many of the Craft areas allowed. I have my sims working 24/7. First of all my time is almost done and it said originally i had 12 days but it’s only been like 7. I messaged them and am waiting for a reply but my time will probably be over by then. This is honestly an impossible mission. Makes me really wanna quit because i spent $33 on SP’s and LP’s . I refuse to spend any more money if I’m not going to win anyway.

  5. I tried reading through the comments to see if this was already asked, but: if the French romance quest comes back around, so I have to re-unlock all prizes to get the French chateau? Is my progress on the event stored so I just have to wait several months until this event comes back around? If they make me start over I’ll really scream. Thanks for the post! I’ve learned a lot just from reading it and the comments. Armed with info about how impossible the challenges are, I can resist spending small amounts of money here and there thinking it will help.
