The Sims Freeplay- French Romance Live Event

22 Comments

ONCE THE 12 DAY TIME LIMIT IS UP YOU WILL HAVE 2 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!


The french romance live event is back for 12 days, if you manage to complete in the time limit you will unlock the french chateau! If you completed this event last time it was available you will not get it again, if you started it last time but didn’t complete it you will start from where you got to last time, for example if you only had one prize pack left to buy you will only have to collect enough resources to buy that prize pack to complete the event.

If you didn’t start this event last time you will start from the beginning!

Live Events are very similar to a community event but you don’t need help from everyone who plays the sims freeplay to unlock the prizes, there are only personal prizes! If you haven’t already you need to update your game to the home makeover update to get this event again

Check out my Guide to Completing Live Events (including tips!) HERE!

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: if you did another Live Event then you will find your arts and crafts stations in your inventory (or in the house you left them at) you will only be able to use the candle ones until you unlock the other stations in this event

Can’t find your arts and crafts stations? Click on the craft station in your event tab to get the option to find your station, it will take you to the house where your stations can be found!

IF YOU UNLOCKED ALL THE STATIONS LAST TIME THE FRENCH ROMANCE EVENT WAS AVAILABLE YOU WILL NOT HAVE TO UNLOCK THEM AGAIN THIS TIME, YOU CAN USE THEM STRAIGHT AWAY

Even if you did this event last time you will still get most of these goals:

Place a crafting station (find the candle station in the events tab of buy mode (or your inventory)- 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! (unless you unlocked this last time) 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 18 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) NOTE: you will not get this goal if you completed it in this event last time

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 items as well if you speed it up!

Restocking

Each station (apart from the first candle one) comes with a stock of 7 which means you can use the station 7 times before it needs to be restocked. When you need to restock you will have two options:

  • Restock 18 uses which happens instantly but will cost you 10SPs

or

  • Restock 9 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

Daily Goals

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

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

Prize Progress

The prize progress is how far you have got on this event, the more arts and crafts items you make the more prizes you will unlock

The bar at the top of the personal progress tab shows you how close you are to unlocking an item, the more arts and crafts items you collect the more the bar will fill up. Once you have unlocked an item on the bar at the top you will need to buy it using the arts and crafts items you have created and constructor coins collected,  then it will be available in your home store:

I am sooooo in love with this château! How beautiful is 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

What is the minimum and maximum amount of coins you can earn on the mega spin plant? The minimum is 10 and the maximum is 500


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: 200 candles,  300 pottery, 450 jewelry or 500 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 2 hours.

 

Do I think she is worth it? They have improved Laura Craft a lot since the first event (although it would be great if she made constructor coins) she used to be able to collect every 8 hours, they have now changed this to 2 hours so she is more useful now so if you are struggling then you may want to splash out and give her a try but remember you will only get her for this event, you will have to buy her again to use her for a live event in the future.

If I brought Laura Craft in the last event do I get her for free or do I have to buy her again? You have to buy her again for this event.

I'm a 22 year old from England who is passionate about being creative, I would like to say I'm good with words but I'm really not! Hopefully you will find my blogs helpful and entertaining! Enjoy! x

22 thoughts on “The Sims Freeplay- French Romance Live Event

  1. Thanks for posting this!!
    The last time this event was available, I had just started playing Sims Freeplay, so I started out with only 5 days left! I really hope I can make it to the end this time… I REALLY want the French Chateau!! It looks so beautiful!

  2. I’ve generally found Lara to be the most value when there isn’t a lot of time left in the event, you’re super close to finishing, and they discount her to $2.99 or even $1.99 sometimes. She can mean the difference between not getting to that last goal or getting there and unlocking the final prize.

    I used a bunch of your tips last time for the backyard event and bought Lara with 3 days left to go, and I was able to complete the whole thing with a day and a half to spare, so thank you!

    • They discount her?! I have never seen her discounted!

      • I also saw her discounted during the backyard goodies event earlier this month, towards the end I think she was $3.99 instead of the usual $6.99 and this was the first time I noticed her offered at a discount. I typically ignore her as the one I struggle with is the coin amount so I don’t think I’d find her very useful except for maybe extra candles to feed the spin plant.

      • Yeah!!! Right now, she’s coming up as $2.99 for me, with 5 days left to go. I just purchased!

  3. Has the constructor coin bonus for “unlock or buy a prize” disappeared for you (or other players)? I had it in the last two craft events but it is gone now. I am offered coins in daily goals for daily coin bonus (1), craft any item (1), craft 1000 items (5), use a spin plant (1), complete all daily goals (20), plus the two candle bonuses. I can’t remember exactly what the set up was before so I’m not sure if I lost the 5 coins for “unlock/buy a prize” or they’ve just been redistributed to another daily coin prize – was craft 1000 items always a 5 coin prize?

    • Unlock or buy a prize isn’t in all the live events as on some of them the first time they were available it was included but it wouldn’t complete when you unlocked or brought a prize so they quickly removed it
      I honestly don’t pay much attention to how many constructor coins each task earns so I don’t know if it was always 5, sorry!

      • No worries. It is definitely a reduction in reward coins unfortunately so I guess I’ll be spinning the plant more this time. I did the math roughly and it works out to a couple hundred coins. I hope I can still finish.

    • I thought I was the only one who had this issue!
      However, the last time this event was around, I had just started playing the Sims Freeplay, so I hadn’t paid much attention to the different daily goals, so I’m not sure this daily goal was available.
      I can say though that the daily goal ”Unlock/Buy a prize” was always a 5 coin prize for the live events for which it was available since I’ve started playing the Sims Freeplay.

  4. I read in your previous blog about this event that it was nearly impossible to attain, is this round the same or have we got a chance to get that house lol

  5. With the French Romance Event coming back for the third time, I hope this means that the Daycare event comes back for a third time as I only need to get the Reading Island in order to get the Toddler Playground. My daycare looks messy without it.

  6. How long ago was this event last available? I do really want the chateau, but if it will happen again I think I would prefer waiting over buying Laura…

  7. I have noticed that to build a house is now not only 30 minutes anymore. It changed to 12 hours and this morning it was 1 day and 18 hours. Do you perhaps have more informatiin on that? And thanks for all your tips!

  8. Hi, I wasn’t able to complete the event this time (I only have the last item, the fountain left but I used up all my LPs and SPs so there’s no way I can buy it). Since you said these events return from time to time I’m not too worried but will I still get the chateau next time or do I only get it if I collect all the items in one go? Thanks in advance!

  9. Hi, Last time when this event appeared I unlocked till the glass station but now it is not letting me use any other station besides candle making. What can I do to fix this?
