The Sims Freeplay- Gallery Francais 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 May) to unlock art gallery themed items and if you complete the whole event in the time limit you unlock the art gallery template. 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

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 Gallery 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 Gallery 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 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 SP, you will get the bonus arts and craft items as well if you speed it up!

You can find this gallery under the real estate homes tab and it can be built on a standard or a premium residence, the first one is free then they cost simoleons depending on how many houses you have already built.

I’m in two minds about this gallery, the building is gorgeous but I don’t want to waste a house lot with another building that isn’t a house! They really need to add a new area of simtown for business builds.

The only difference between the standard and the premium residence is the garden:

You also unlock:

Patio and Balcony Railings Sections: Cream (S5,900) and Brown (S5,900) Gallery Rails

Doors Section: Black (S115,000) and Brown (11LP) Gated Doors

Stairs Section: Red (S97,500) and Blue (9SP) Grand Gallery Stairs – I love these! I am really happy we unlock these rather than having to buy them separately!

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. Thank you for putting out the times before these events start! It really helps plan what I need to do to prepare. My question is Can you still add a Sim to the gallery once it’s built just like a regular house? Also can you rearrange the building once you get it to turn it into a more residential lot?

    Again thank you so much for all the tutorials!

    • You’re very welcome! Yes, sims can still be added to this lot and it can be edited, they have just created a gallery on a house lot so you can still turn it into a house if you would like

  2. I so wish there would be an area for non house buildings! I only get invested in the events when there are objects that can be used in houses as well, because I find it boring to use the lots to build other things.

  3. Hi.m, is this update for just laptops ? Or can Xbox and PS4 players access it too?

  4. Today I did a new update and won 3 fortune boxes! It said the last update wasn’t fair with me so they wanted to compensate, anyone else updated today and won fortune boxes? I wonder if the gallery live event will be available for me or that was the motive for their apologizing 😦

    • There was an issue for a lot of players where events were starting and ending early for them but they have fixed this now so you should still be able to complete the live event

  5. Hi, thanks for this post! Do you mind adding the exact number of each resource we will need to complete this live event?

  6. What happens to surplus items when the event finishes? If they’re held for the next time a crafting event comes up then it makes sense to keep on crafting until all stock is used up (as the stock is lost if you put the event items back in your inventory).

    (PS thanks for this amazing site :D)

    • You’re welcome! These items get converted into simoleons once the event is over so there isn’t any point in using up the stock on all your stations. Also I wouldn’t recommend putting them away after each event is over as if you leave them out you will just start from the stock you had last time, for example, if you have 3 stock on the jewelry station you will start with 3 next time (the only station this doesn’t work for is candles)

  7. Have you or anyone been able to calculate what’s the conversion rate of the Candles, Pottery, Jewelry, Glass and Construction Coins into simoleons after each unsuccessful arts and crafts event. If you’ve already shared it, just point me to which event you’ve blogged it. Thank you for the years of help!!

  8. Hello I have just tried to finish the gallery Francais but I had one thing left to buy the stoney statues but it says to me I have 2 days to buy leftover packs so if I buy the final pack will I win the house or will it just be a waste of time

    • You will still win the house if you complete in the time you have left, you will also be able to complete it if you wait until the event returns in the future so don’t think that you have to complete it right now with SP

  9. Hey there! Thanks so much for all your help! Just wanted to ask, do you know when this even will be back? I ordering if I should spend the SP or wait it out…

    • I wouldn’t recommend wasting your SP on completing it this time, I don’t know when it will return but live events return all the time so it will be back one day.
