What else?

  • The Sims Freeplay have collaborated with Funko to give players a FREE ‘Funkoween Fun Pack’ which can be claimed from the online store during this update (as this is a collab it probably won’t return next year so make sure you claim it quickly!)

The pack contains 2 Halloween Pop! style decor and 3 playful masks:

  • Once claimed you can find the Funk-o’-Lantern (S15,000) and Funkghost (S15,500) in the decorations section. These can be placed on the ground or surfaces and sims can admire them. The Funkghost even glows in the dark!
  • The Pumpkin, Skeleton and Witch masks can be found in the headwear section for Toddlers, Preteens, Teens, Adults and Seniors

Watch my Funko ‘Funkoween’ FREE Pack video here

  • Filter System– Building just got easier! The home store now has a filter so you can find items in no time at all:

You can filter by:

  • Type of object
  • Type of currency it costs (free, simoleons, LP or SP)
  • Star rating of the object

For example, here I have filtered my electronics section to show 3 star Phones & Stereos that cost simoleons:

We know this was designed for the decorations section, here I have filtered it to show me Paintings & Pictures that cost SP:

Check out my Filter System video here

  • Check-in rewards– be rewarded for just playing the game! Each day you log in in a row, the larger the prizes. You can find the prizes in the ‘check in rewards’ tab of the mailbox:

These pop ups appear the first time you click on the mailbox after the update:

  • Cupcake: A Cupcake usually costs 5LP and can be used to inspire a sim. You can have up to 5 free cupcakes stored, any over that amount will be lost so make sure you use them:

  • Mystery Key: Mystery Keys are usually earned by completed Weekly Tasks, these keys can then purchase boxes to unlock items:

  • Simoleon Sprout Spin: You can find this spin from a garden patch, these spins usually cost S250 and the jackpot is S15,000:

  • VIP Point: These are usually earned by purchasing items from the online store for real money, the more VIP Points you earn the higher your VIP Level will be and the more VIP Perks you will unlock:

If you forget to claim your prizes when you last logged in they will be waiting next time you play, you can click on the mailbox icon on either the daily rewards or check in rewards tabs to collect all rewards at once.

The Sims Freeplay-Coastal Living Update

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


img_1829

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

SIM SPRINGS

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:

img_1826

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:

img_1830

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.

img_1721

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.

Check out my Guide to Sim Springs: Sandy Suburbs post here
