The Sims Freeplay-Coastal Living Update

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


Update available from 14th June 10:30pm UTC

It is time to head to the coast and Sim Springs! Keep reading to find out what is happening in the latest Sims Freeplay update


A brand new event will be available from the start of this update (there is no rush to begin it, it will be available when you are ready) It is perfect for those who have completed everything already in the game and want some new house lots! Sim Springs is a new location which can be accessed from the bus stop by the science lab in Simtown once you are at level 20 or above:


Sim Springs contains neighbourhoods, the first neighbourhood is called Sandy Suburbs (future updates will contain new neighbourhoods) There are four houses for you to fix up in Sandy Suburbs; Tumbleweed Terrace, Dusty Dwelling, Arid Apartments and Wellspring Library. The aim is to complete daily tasks to do up these lots, one at a time:


3 of the lots are house lots and the final is a community lot which can still be customised like a normal house lot but your sims cannot live in them. You will also be able to place any item in the living room section of buy mode in the community lot for free!

The lots need to be renovated in the order listed above, you cannot do up more than one at a time and the next won’t unlock until the previous one has been completed. The time limit to complete a house is 10 days with tasks to complete each day in Sim Springs, similar to Downtown Developer Events if you don’t complete in the time limit you will have to pay to be able to move on but there are prizes if you do manage to complete in time, the grand prize contains a house template that can be placed in Sim Springs or Simtown.


Between each house lot you can take a break for 7 days before the 10 day timer begins or you can start straight away.

Once all 4 houses are complete you can complete neighbourhood tasks to improve the neighbourhood ranking and change the look of Sandy Suburb with visual upgrades such as trees and roads.

  1. Is the Sim Springs Event a forced live event just like SimChase and Influence Island?

  2. Hello EA community ,, it is a really very good game playing ,,,I had been playing this since it started I mean when I had a samsung keypad Mobile from that day I love sims …
    But I want to request something about the game ,, please increase more sims more than 42 ,,I knot we can have more than that by doing baby glitch but it hangs a little.. please do it naturally …next is , just like sims 4 ,, if we could build house lots like whatever we wanted to build it would be really great … I mean we can’t use any decoration diagonally … And we can’t even create the roofs as we like …so I wanted some improvement…
    Thank you so much ❤️ much love for sims and EA family ❤️❤️❤️

  3. Since live events unable to comment, so I wanna say it here.
    Romantic garden live event items: Oak floral wells change into white color.
    I hope you fix it because it doesn’t match with my brown house.

  4. So I’m not sure if this is a glitch, or part of the new update. The problem is whenever I have a task longer than 10 hours i usually skip it, but for some reason whenever a task is longer than 10 hours, the skip option increases from 10 to an hour below the longest time. For example, the teenager option: chat to besty on phone is 9 and a half hours on a 3 star phone, but to skip it it is 11 lp. Same with the task thats 19 hours on a 3 star bookshelf (I can’t remember its name), but to skip it, it costs 23 lp. Again I’m not sure if its a glitch or part of new update, and if it’s part of a new update then that’s just sad.

    • I think this is a glitch as it is still working like normal on my game, I would suggest just waiting for the next update as things like this usually fix themselves when the game is updated.

  5. In regards to Shree Radhey comment it would be nice to also be able to rotate when building your home and placing items in your home. And I agree if we can add more sims to the game then what they give us.

    On a different note it would be great to be able to buy not with real cash but in the game money to buy new baby items and maternity clothes that get missed during the pregnancy event as well as household decorations for all rooms example: office, kitchen, bathroom, dining room, living room, etc.

    It would also be great when the kids go to school to interact with it like medical or police, filmmaker. A grocery store when they can actually shop for items instead of picking out by a pop up and same for the clothes.

    It would be great if we can hire a nanny and house keepers as well.

    It would be great if some items abs homes don’t cost soooo much money $$$$ some don’t even seem worth the cost.

    Thank you.

  6. I’m kind of annoyed that they had the pride flags for a limited time. I missed them, and I wish that they would add them as default in game decorations.
