Early Access to Beta Provided by EA/ Firemonkeys (Presented by EA GameChangers) may differ from actual version

The Luxury Living Live Event unlocks new luxurious items for your sims homes, including cinema screens and popcorn machines, you also unlock the gorgeous luxury living house if you complete this event in the time limit. This event will be available from the 28th August for 10 days! Update your game to the new Luxury Living Update now to start this event

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

This event is only here for 10 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!

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 gate button in the corner of the screen)

Here you will see you have collected enough items to unlock the Cinema Walls pack! When you unlock each pack, before the items are available in your home store you need to purchase them with the arts and crafts items you make- this goal is coming up!

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 Cinema Walls pack (click on the gate 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 gate 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!

Constructor Coins

You earn constructor coins by:

Personal Progress prizes

Completing Daily Goals

Coin Plant Patches

Earning Constructor 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

Now on the coin flower patch you can see the chances of getting the different combinations on each spin plant, click on the green i button to see:

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. I personally don’t ever buy her, if I don’t manage to earn enough items or coins in the time limit I just wait until the next time the event is available!

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.

  1. Is it worth using the candles on the daily reward or dont use ..collect as many candles and turn them into construction coins..i did this the last everything but the main piece ..and i worked day n night to win all the prizes..i did have. However i only have 2sp so hard to know what to do..their holding back on thecspin plant to force you to buy something or miss out..very discouraging. Use to have community help ..not that it matters if i have to work the event alone ..but i have to say if it becomes impossible to win all the prizes probaly going to stop wasting my time and set my own goals for my game..if you have any idea if this is possibls to complete without buying plz tell me..your excellant gamer..i did use to turn 5 lps to get its 20 lps..working myself to death on this game to complete these events..ty

    • These live events are impossible to complete in the time limit, I have realised this now and I just unlock as many of the prizes as I can then I wait for them to bring the event back again and finish it then so to answer your question, yes you should use your candles on the spin plant but don’t use them all straight away, each day you need to earn 10 constructor coins on the spin plant to complete the daily goal so just spin until you have earned at least 10 coins and then save the rest of your candles for the packs and once you have brought all the packs that cost candles you can then use them all on the spin plant.

      • I’ve managed to complete most within the time limit with some careful planning …some of this I’m sure you all know but just to reiterate.

        1. Do NOT buy prizes unless you need them for your daily bonuses. The bonuses are the absolute easiest way to get guaranteed constructor coins. If you hit one of the constructor coins or social point bonuses based on your materail, that counts for the “unlock or buy a prize” bonus. When I first started doing these events I would buy prizes as I got the ability to do so…meaning I didn’t always have enough candles to spin the wheel for collecting those bonuses, and if all prizes were already unlocked except the ones I really had to save up for, I couldn’t get the bonus for unlocking/buying a prize.

        2. Plan around which time to use – 2.5 hours gives the best amount material for the time but sometimes an alternative is better – If you have time to collect one more set before bed, choose the 6.5 or 8.5 option depending on how long you sleep so that you are collecting bonuses while you are awake and material all night, and restock in the morning, instead of restocking while you are asleep.

        And if all else fails, just pick your favorites and buy them 🙂

      • Oops – clarification to my other comment on #2 – If you have time to collect one more set before but and only have one more available usage on that craft station, then select the longer option.

  2. Why isn’t the update available to me yet?? Do we have to do a special quest or be on a specific level to avail this update??

  3. Hello!
    Thanks for all the info on all the quests and events. I’m almost done unlocking the last prize. I had my sims crafting round the clock for it. Can’t wait for the luxury house.

  4. Do you think this live event will come back soon? If so, will the previous progress do saved?

  5. This event was brutal. I thought a few of the last events they had eased up based on our requests. But this one felt back to being impossible within one go round. I only managed it because I had been planning on using some gift cards on some store stuff anyhow, two of which were the SP/LP cards and only just managed to have enough SPs to buy the last pack to unlock the house. And oI came down to the wire, hoping once my sims finished right before the final minutes there’d have been enough items to drop the SP purchase within the amount I already had prior to purchasing the SP card. No such luck. I guess the developers won this time and I did make the purchase…otherwise I would have just had to grumble about having an almost-but-not-quite complete collection and no house or pretty fish tank for however long it takes to come back.

  6. Is there a specific wall I have to place the projector in? I have plenty of wall space and it still won’t let me place it.

  7. Thanks for your wonderful blog!
    Question please ..
    I do not think I can finish it all in time. Less than two days left. Do you think it will come back again? And if so, when?
    And would I have to start everything from the beginning or from the point where I stopped?

    • These events usually return a lot, there is no set date for the return as it does vary but I am sure it will be back again one day. When it returns you will start from where you got to this time.

  8. Love your site, use it all the time even though I’ve been playing for about a year. I do have a question about the luxury live event. If you haven’t unlocked the house (final prize) within the time frame because 1 of the earlier prizes hasn’t been unlocked, once you unlock it will the house be unlocked even if it’s after the time limit is up?
