The Sims Freeplay- Glam Mansion Live Event

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


Complete this brand new live event (starts 1st January) to unlock new glamorous items and if you complete the whole event in the time limit you unlock the glam mansion template. This event is only here for 9 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

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

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!

Want to skip the tasks list? Click here to head straight to the prizes!

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 button in the corner of the screen)

Here you will see you have collected enough items to unlock the Varnished Walnut Floor 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 10SP or restock for 2 uses which will take 10 seconds this time

Buy the Varnished Walnut Floor pack (click on the 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 drinks 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 arts and craft items as well if you speed it up!

This house can be found under the driveway homes tab and built on a standard or premium residence, the first one is free then they cost simoleons depending on how many houses you have already built. There are already 3 sports cars on the driveway (but you can still purchase the final car parking space for S1,500,000 to add 4 cars to this house)

Once you purchase the final space you will be able to add another car but you need to have 4 adult/senior sims living in this house to add the fourth car otherwise it will just switch their car to the new one you have just brought.

This house is very different on a standard and a premium residence! As you can see below the premium is double the size of the standard (the standard is sort of the premium split in half):

I’m not a fan of this house, if I managed to complete this event in the time limit I don’t think I am going to waste a spot building it. I do prefer how it looks on the premium to the standard (the standard looks a lot like a museum with all the displays!)

You also unlock:

Decorations Section: Gold (S135,000) and White (15LP) Wall Displays and Black (S625,000) and White (65LP)Jewelry Displays

Doors Section: Villa White Bifold Double (S95,000)

The 3 sports cars at the Glam Mansion can also be brought from the Car Dealership:

Pearl Purple Sports- 225LP

Luxury Black Sedan- S875,000

Red Convertible- S1,250,000

If you haven’t built the dealership yet these cars will be available once built

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 LP, I can then turn the LP into SP using the social point plant on a normal garden patch- this was when it cost 5LP- the social point plant now costs 20LP 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.

If I don’t complete this event this time will I have to start from the beginning when it returns? No, you will start from where you got to this time!

  1. Lol this house is so weird! I like the simetry, but that’s all, I agree with you, it looks like a museum.

  2. not a fan of this either, and i don’t understand if we are paying so much for these items, why can’t they all be three stars?

  3. I just want to vent, but I’ve started feeling like these live events are kind of pointless. I used to spend LPs and SPs to try to finish in time if I really wanted the house, but after 1 year of playing I’ve only finished in time once (the farmhouse). I was 3 days behind when the Lake House ended. Even playing for some of the packs has started irritating me; one window for free and then 130,000 simoleons for each? I know EA is trying to get us to spend real money for simoleons, but 100,000 or more for some of the one star items is just silly when I could build a patio or a pool for that amount. If there’s something I know I’m going to want more than one of, I just don’t see the point of trying to earn that particular pack.

    I know you can’t really do anything about it, but thanks for giving me a place to vent. You’re blog has been so very helpful! Thanks for taking the time to keep it updated!

  4. Just confirming if I do not managed to complete the collection on time will there be another chance for it to come back?

  5. I fell asleep so I didn’t claim the last two prizes. If i use lp to claim them will the house be unlocked. Can I still claim the house or now that the live event is over even if I buy the last two prizes I won’t unlock the house?

  6. When I built this, it only gave me one car and no driveway. Weird bug. Waiting to hear back from the support team. :/

  7. I can’t even start this event,my game is updated so why don’t it show up for me too do it??😟
