The Sims Freeplay- Pregnancy Events: Maternity Prize Packs

Early Access to Beta Provided by EA/ Firemonkeys (Presented by EA GameChangers)


In this post I have listed all the maternity prize packs that are unlocked by completing pregnancy events. If you start the 9 day pregnancy event anytime during one of the time frames you have the chance of earning the maternity items in that pack if you complete the event in the time limit. You need to have completed the first pregnancy event in the A Bump-y Ride Quest before you can earn the maternity prizes.

None of these maternity prize packs have so far returned to the game

The Sims Freeplay- School’s Out Live Event

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


Starts 3rd September

Complete this brand new live event (starts 3rd September) to unlock school themed items and if you complete the whole event in the time limit you unlock the school campus 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 School 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 School 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!

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 to this house lot!

Even though this is a school campus you can still edit it and add sims to live in this house like you would a normal house

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.

Overall I think this template is disappointing, I have really had enough now of non houses taking up house lots, why do we even need another school anyway? We already have 3 including the one in downtown we can visit!

The standard and premium versions are completely different, I personally prefer how it looks on the premium, it looks more like a school but I won’t be wasting a house lot building this one

You also unlock:

Decorations Section: Red (S135,000) and Gray (13SP) School Lockers

Outdoor Decorations: Green (S175,000) and Blue (17LP) Dumpsters

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.

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


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!

The Sims Freeplay- Influence Island

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


A brand new event is being added to The Sims Freeplay in the next update, Influence Island! (all other update information will be coming soon) Influence Island will be a time limited event where you visit a remote island and enter a survivor inspired gameshow! The aim is to influence the sims on the island to join your clan. Like SimChase this event has seasons so we should expect a lot more of these events in the future, this post explains how to complete this event as it will be the same each time but remember the prizes do change each season.

How does it work? Once the event begins you can head to the island and chat with the sims on the island by completing Influence Challenges, if you complete all the challenges with that sim they will join your clan. The aim of the event is to convince 7 of the 10 sims on the island to join your clan in the 10 day time limit. The rival sim is doing the same thing but they do convert sims a lot slower and you can still convince them to join your side (they can’t be converted by the rival once they are on your side)
The contestants (sims) on the island start off as Neutral status with your sim but as you complete each challenge you will reach different relationship statuses:

Before they can join your clan you need to complete all the challenges, each challenge has several rounds:

  • Neutral to Friend- 6 rounds
  • Friend to Ally- 8 rounds
  • Ally to Clan Mate- 10 rounds

Once you start a challenge you will see a bar on the left hand side of your screen, this is the Influence Bar.

Your aim is to select actions from the right hand side of the screen to increase your influence towards that sim and reach the safe (green) zone to complete the round but you need to get this just right otherwise you can influence too much and hit the fail (red) zone which means you lose the challenge and all the coins you have earned so far in this challenge.

In most rounds you also have a yellow zone, this means your rival has already tried to influence this sim, the stop and convince option appears when you reach this zone so you can click that and try and convince that sim. If you have influenced them more (1) or the same as the rival (3) you will win but if your rival’s influence was greater you will lose the challenge (2)

If you have played The Sims Mobile Sweet Treat Showdown Events they are very similar but the Influence Island version is a bit easier as you can sort of work out where you will end up.

The actions have different amounts on them such as 1-20 or 20-45 this means an amount will randomly be selected from the range of the option you choose, for example, if you pick the 1-20 option it will increase the bar by between 1-20 so sometimes you can easily see which option would be best and which is most likely to hit the red zone.

A Chocolate Bar can also be used to increase the range by a small amount (between 2-9) you get 3 chocolate bars for each challenge and they will never cause you to hit the red zone so if you are close to green then you can use a bar to reach the goal and complete the round. You can also buy more bars if you need to:

Watch my walkthrough video of the Influence Island Event here


Before you begin you complete a little tutorial that explains how it works:

  • Tap on the event button in the active tasks menu (this takes you to the island)

  • Tap the menu in the top left corner (the first tab shows your clan progress) Here you can see how many sims you have influenced so far and your status with all the sims on the island

  • With an adult sim, greet the Grouch- 8 seconds (the Grouch is the rival for Season 1) The rival influences the sims on the island too but at a much slower rate than you do. You can still convert them to your side if they have been influenced by the rival

  • Tap a target contestant (click on one of the sims on the island)

  • Start a challenge (when you click on a sim you will see a profile, click start challenge to begin)

  • Tap on the action (action varies, click the one it tells you to) Each action gives a random amount of influence within its range so for this first action it will increase the influence between 20-45. The bar on the left hand side shows how much influence has been added, for me it was 34:

  • Tap on the action (action varies, click the one it tells you to) the goal is to build a bond with your target so the green zone is where you are aiming for a successful round

  • Complete the round (try not to influence too much otherwise you will hit the red zone and fail the challenge losing the network credits you have earned so far in this challenge)

  • Tap continue (you have completed your first round, to reach the friend stage you have to complete 6 rounds with this sim, tap continue to move onto the next round)

  • Use actions to reach the rival zone (the rival zone is the yellow zone, this means the rival has been influencing this sim already, reach the yellow zone to complete this task)

  • Complete with actions or ‘stop and convince’ (at this stage you can either keep going with actions to increase the bar and try and reach the green zone or use the stop and convince option but if the rival’s influence with this sim is higher you will lose)(I picked the 1-20 option to try and reach the green zone)

  • Keep influencing to build your clan (you will need to convert 7 sims to clan mates within the 10 day time limit to unlock the grand prize)

You will be able to complete 3 challenges each day, you will then have to wait 8 hours for the next challenge or use SP to start one early

After each round your Network Credits are stored in a basket until the challenge is complete, if you fail a round you will lose all your network credits earned in that challenge so far unless you spend SP to continue:

If you decide you are happy with the amount of Network Credits you have earned so far in the challenge you can click ‘quit and collect’ to earn the Network Credits currently in your basket but if you do this you will not increase your relationship with that sim:

Gift Shop

In the gift shop you will find 10 common prizes and 5 rare prizes, these change every season:


Common Prizes cost 500 each and Rare Prizes cost 720 each. Click to spin to earn one of the prizes at random each time (you won’t get duplicates) you need to claim all the common prizes before you can start claiming the rare prizes:

Once the event is over any Network Credits remaining will be converted into simoleons, you get 10 simoleons for each Network Credit so 5,940 Network Credits earns you S59,400:

The third tab in the menu contains the influence island tips:

Frequently Asked Questions About Influence Island

Why do all your screenshots say the time limit is 97 days? My screenshots are from the early access version so some things can be different from the actual version, the correct time limit is 10 days.

If you fail a round what happens? You will lose all the network credits you have earned in that challenge so far.

Do you lose all progress if you fail? You only lose the progress towards the next stage so if they are Ally and you are trying to reach Clan Mate but fail they will stay as Ally and you can try again.

If I quit and claim early does it affect my influence on that sim? No it doesn’t decrease your relationship, you will start from the beginning of that stage next time you start a challenge with them, for example, if they are Friends and you quit after 2 rounds of trying to reach Ally they will still be Friends and you will have to start from round 1 again to try and get them to Ally status.

How many sims can be at the island at once? Only one of your sims can be on the island at a time.

How do I get back to the island if I leave? Click on the button on the influence island event tab in the active tasks menu to return to the island:

I’m not bothered about the grand prize, can I just earn the gift shop prizes? Yes, you can always just make all the sims on the island Friend or Ally status and earn enough credit to spin for the prizes.

How many network credits do I need in total for all the prizes? 8,600

If I convert 7 clan mates and earn the grand prize but not claimed all the gift shop prizes yet can I still unlock any prizes I have left? Yes if you are within the 10 day time limit you can still claim your remaining prizes before the event ends.

What does the Survival Kit do? The survival kit costs real money to buy and it contains tools to help you including an extra chocolate bar per challenge, 1,000 bonus NC, the Survival Tip action to be used once per challenge that gives 10 influence and 10 bribes which when your sim is within 15 points of success it will guarantee success (bribes will never cause you to hit the red zone)


Watch my walkthrough video of the Influence Island Event here:


What do I think of Influence Island? Overall I love the idea of this event but only time will tell if it is possible to complete in the time limit. I like the idea that you can still earn prizes with your Network Credits even if you don’t complete the whole event to unlock the grand prize, I think I will be doing this less time consuming option when the grand prize isn’t worth it.
