The Sims Freeplay- LEGO® DOTS x The Sims Live Event

#Sponsored by EA & The LEGO® Group


Starts 13th June 2022

The Sims Freeplay and LEGO® DOTS are partnering together in an exclusive update. LEGO® DOTS will take over SimTown with a limited time LEGO® DOTS x The Sims Live Event and free LEGO® DOTS pack from 13th June- 24th July 2022. Complete to unlock LEGO® DOTS inspired items and if you complete the whole event in the time limit you unlock the You DOT You house template. This event is available for the entire update but once you load the game the time limit will begin, this event is only here for 7 days (it is shorter than normal live events but doesn’t require as many arts and crafts items) 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.

Players from level 7 will be able to participate in this event so we can all explore the wonderful world of LEGO® DOTS in the latest update of The Sims Freeplay!

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 LEGO® DOTS Inspired Floors 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 any more 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 LEGO® DOTS Inspired Floors pack (click on the event button, scroll down and click purchase- this will cost you 50 candles)

Use a coin flower patch NOTE: there is no coin flower patch in this event, we can only earn constructor coins through our daily tasks and progress bar

 

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!

NOTE:

  • if you store the station you will lose all the stock so when you place it again you will need to restock

22.You DOT You- you can only claim this pack if you have purchased all the other packs in this live event

This template 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. You can add up to 4 cars on a driveway homes lot!

The other three car parking spaces need to be unlocked by purchasing with simoleons:

  • Additional Space One: S250,000
  • Additional Space Two: S750,000
  • Additional Space Three: S1,500,000

Once you purchase an additional space you will be able to add another car but you need to have more than one adult/senior sim living in this house to add more than one car otherwise it will just switch their car to the new one you have just brought. For example if you wanted 3 cars in this house you need 3 adult or senior sims living in this house.

The only difference is the garden on the premium residence, there is a greenhouse, the pool is bigger and there are trees which can be moved:

The house is fairly boring, I was expecting loads of colours and the LEGO® DOTS theme to be throughout but it is really only in the front two bedrooms, the rest of the house is bland and many rooms are lacking small touches that would make them interesting. The garden on the premium residence looks like it was thrown together in minutes just to say there is a premium version of this template. It is such a shame as the rest of the items in this live event are great, I just wish they were showcased better in this house.

You also unlock:

Bedroom Section: LEGO® DOTS Inspired Bed (S25,000)

Floors Section: Blue LEGO® DOTS Inspired Carpet (S250)

Walls Section: LEGO® DOTS ‘Pineapple’ Wallpaper (S250) and LEGO® DOTS ‘Into the Deep’ Wallpaper (S250)


Experience DOTS for yourself by crafting your way through the LEGO® DOTS x The Sims Live Event anytime between 13th June- 24th July!


Constructor Coins

You earn constructor coins by:

Personal Progress prizes

Completing Daily Goals

NOTE: there is no coin flower patch in this event, we can only earn constructor coins through our daily tasks and progress bar


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.

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


Once the event is over it will convert your unused resources into simoleons, the conversion rate is half the amount of resources, for example, if you have 10,000 candles left over you will earn 5,000 simoleons, if you only have 1 of a resource left over you will only earn 1 simoleon. When a new live event becomes available you start from 0 resources
