The Sims Freeplay- Urban Chic Hobby Event

The urban chic hobby event is back for 6 days to unlock outfits for your male and female adult sims! You get a new outfit each time you complete it so you need to complete the collection 8 times to unlock all the outfits, once you unlock an outfit you get to keep it even if you don’t find them all. If you completed this before you will not get this event again, if you got some of the outfits last time you will only need to find the remaining ones this time, for example, if you completed the collection 6 times last time to unlock 6 outfits you only need to complete it two more times this time to find the last two outfits.

If you haven’t done the fashion designer hobby click here for details on how to complete the hobby

You need to buy a fashion studio from the promotions r us store to complete this hobby

Click here to see the outfits

You need to firstly accept this quest, it will remove the fashion pieces you have already created from the collection so you don’t get a head start.

If you say no you can start it from the goal tab. Once you have said yes you now need to complete the collection nine times but you will not get extra time if you start late


NOTE: YOU NEED TO COMPLETE ALL FOUR ROWS TO GET ONE OUTFIT!!

12 FASHION PIECES= COMPLETE COLLECTION AND UNLOCKS 1 OUTFIT


TIPS FOR FINDING THEM ALL IN THE TIME LIMIT:

-have more than one sim working on it, you can have as many sims as you want completing this hobby at once but you will need a fashion studio for each of them
-it is easier if you have all the sims in one house, maybe build a room for them so they are all together but you don’t have to! 
-if you can, do the 10 minute option over and over, you will find the most designs this way (once you have a sim at level 6)

-have at least one sim at level 6 or working on getting to level 6 (maybe do the 12 hour option) so all designs are unlocked (don’t know if you already got a sim to level 6? If you have previously completed the collection you reached level 6 or you can see when you look at the hobby collection, if boxes are greyed out you haven’t completed it yet)
-remember to click start new collection on the fashion hobby collection once you have got all the pieces
-most importantly: just keep going! I know it’s annoying when you get the same one constantly (those heels are a nightmare!) but you will eventually get the ones you need.


Outfits- you can find the female outfits in the outfits and shoes sections of the wardrobe and the male items in the tops, pants and shoes sections


YOU CANNOT UNLOCK ALL THE OUTFITS IF YOU DO NOT COMPLETE THIS EVENT IN THE TIME LIMIT

The Sims Freeplay- Backyard Beautification Live Event

The Backyard Beautification Live Event is back again for 9 days on the 7th August, complete in the 9 day time limit to unlock furniture, decor and planters for your sims gardens! If you completed this event last time it was available you will not get it again, if you started it last time but didn’t complete it you will start from where you got to last time, for example if you only had one prize pack left to buy you will only have to collect enough resources to buy that prize pack to complete the 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 planter event button in the corner of the screen)

Here you will see you have collected enough items to unlock the Plantable Rose Starter Kit! 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 Plantable Rose Starter Kit pack (click on the planter 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 SP, you will get the bonus arts and craft items as well if you speed it up!

What is the difference between the standard and premium residence? The house is exactly the same, the only difference is the garden:

Personally I don’t like this house template, if you want to unlock items from some previous events then you can find loads of them in this house but I think I will just be building my own! This house is also the same as the Brilliant Backyard house template so if you completed that live event you already have this house, the only thing that is different is the garden.

You also unlock Pizza Oven, Concrete Bar, BBQ, Fountain, more designer walls and paving for your patios, balconies and swimming pools:

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!


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!

How much do they cost? The first HANS Panel is free, after this they cost 15LP each. The Stainless Steel Dishwasher costs S150,000 and the Brown Black Dishwasher costs S26,000

Is it worth it?

HANS Panel– You can use the HANS panel to open and close the curtains/blinds in your house, dim the lights and change the colour of your house lights. I am not really sure what the point of changing the colours is but being able to open and close the blinds all at once is a great time saver!

You can dim the lighting by 25%, 50% and 75%:

You can change the house lights colour to Yellow, Red, Blue and Green:

Dishwashers– It is worth completing this quest in the time limit just for the dishwashers! They are amazing! For all of you who know the annoyance of completing the cooking hobby and having hundreds of plates laying around that have to be cleaned up individually this is a must! Just select load all plates on the dishwasher and they will all disappear!

Once you have used the dishwasher you need to wait an hour before you can use it again:
