The Sims Freeplay- The Prince and The Pocket-Sized Princess Community Event


The Christmas update this year is very different because instead of a normal quest we have another community event!

This event is available for 16 days (make sure you have the latest version of the game!) and the aim is to collect enough flowers from the new giant flower blooms (found in the event tab of buy mode) to unlock all the items in this event!

For the community part of this event, these are the flowers everyone collects- you do not need neighbours this is everyone who plays the games progress! The progress we all make is added together and we unlock new chapters and items when we have collected so much (the furniture we will unlock can be seen in my early access post)


Place a flower bloom (find in the events tab of buy mode- you can only buy 4)

Collect some flowers (click on the giant daisies to collect)- 10 seconds

This takes you to the personal progress tab (you can get to it by clicking on the fairy event button in the corner of the screen)

Here you will see you have unlocked the rainforest ticket!

Buy the magical rainforest ticket (go back into the personal progress tab and click purchase)

Visit the magical rainforest (go to the sea voyage boat in sim town)

NOTE: you will see two destinations on the boat, if the Tropical Romance Island is locked then you will have to wait for them to bring that community event back again before you can go there but you can still access the Magical Rainforest for this event!


Use the event spin flower (buy the coin flower patch from the event tab and select the spin plant option)

Check the community progress (click on the fairy event button and find the community tab)

Check the daily goals (click on the fairy event button and find the daily goals tab- claim the ones you can!)

Remember to claim your rewards to earn constructor coins!

Collect bonuses (while collecting after a certain amount of time you will see a flower appear above that sims head, click to collect bonus flowers!)

Continue collecting flowers- this is the last step but the event is not over, keep collecting flowers to unlock everything before the time is up!

If you want to speed up a collect flowers action it will cost you SPs, you will get the bonus flowers as well if you speed it up!

Daily Goals

Check on the first tab every day because if you complete all the daily goals you will get additional rewards

NOTE: remember to click CLAIM once you have completed a daily goal to collect the reward and remember to claim your free constructor coin and free daisies each day!

How do I claim or buy a prize to complete a daily goal?

You need to buy one of the personal progress items that you have unlocked (once you have all the flowers and constructor coins needed for it you can click purchase) or on a community prize you click claim to complete this

TIP: if you have already claimed or brought a prize that day maybe wait until the next just incase you don’t have enough flowers or coins to buy or there isn’t one to claim the next day, this way you will still be able to complete all the goals and earn your bonus constructor coins!

Personal Progress

The personal progress is how far you have got on this event, the more flowers you collect the more items you will unlock

If you manage to build everything you will unlock the Magical Wings area at the rainforest (This is free! I didn’t manage to build everything as I couldn’t get enough constructor coins and I’m not wasting all my social points on it!)


Earning Construtor Coins? Previously I have used social points on the Mega Spin Plant to win constructor points. I earn social points by completing the cooking hobby and earning LPs, I can then turn the LPs into SPs using the social point plant on a normal garden patch- this was when it cost 5LPs- the social point plant now costs 20LPs so you may want to try the option below first instead:

Or you can use 450 Daisies for the Spin Plant (a good way to use up any spare Daisies) which will also earn you constructor coins but the amount you earn is less than from the Mega Spin Plant

Community Progress

The community progress is the combined progress of all players flowers collected to unlock new chapters which unlock new items for all of us!

NOTE: You DO NOT need neighbours for this- this is everyone who plays the games progress NOT your neighbours progress

This community event is different because each chapter we unlock is part of a quest, once we finish that chapter we unlock the furniture you can see in my early access post. I will be added information and pictures of all the goals and the prizes as we unlock them.

RESULTS: Do you want EA to add more profession careers?

It turns out that players do want more profession careers!


Not me though..


In my opinion I have enjoyed the game a lot less since these professions have been added and if I wasn’t blogging about this game I wouldn’t complete these careers. I was so excited about the police update and I loved the idea of the new professions but I really don’t think it works the way it currently is.

I have spent a lot of the summer glued to my game to try and get as much done as possible before I start back at college as there is no way I am going to be able to complete the quotas to earn the resources needed to build and upgrade my workstations when I am busy all day.

I get that this is meant to be a long term mission but some people only have time to play for an hour or so a day- if you can’t spend more than a few hours playing you are not going to be able to complete the quota any day so will be unable to build any of the workstations as they all require a lot of resources to build. I really think there needs to be another way to earn a larger amount of resources- also I love the idea someone suggested of carrying over the quota to the next day!

Also sims often come in who you are unable to help yet as you have unlocked a workstation but haven’t managed to build it yet. It would be great if these sims didn’t show up until the workstation is built.

The finally issue I am going to mention is the timings for tasks- they get so long! How you are meant to complete the quota without having to use LPs when several sims need help with an hour task (or even longer!) I have no idea!


EA please turn this back into a game- instead of a full time job!


The Sims Freeplay- Doctor, Doctor Update

Early Access to Beta Provided by EA/ Firemonkeys

This latest profession update allows sims to work at the hospital as medical staff.

I am happy they have finally added a hospital but I would have liked a hospital update where your sims can become unwell and have to visit the hospital instead of another profession. I think you have guessed it by now that this post is going to be very similar to the two previous posts as all profession careers are basically the same (really bored of them now!)

The only difference this time is you need to complete a discovery quest before you can unlock the hospital. The hospital is located in a NEW area- Downtown! You need to build the simtown express to begin the Simtown Express Quest, click here for my post on this quest (be aware that I completed this using the Beta version of this update so some of the tasks or times may differ but I will be updating the post as I complete the quest on my own game)

Once completed you can take the simtown express train to the downtown area to build the hospital!

I will create another post later that includes all the upgrades needed to completely build the hospital.

How does this career work?

With most other careers in the game, you send your sim to work and you don’t see them for that period of time while they are working. But with this job you can go to the hospital with 2 sims and help them during their work day!

When you send a sim to work at the hospital sims will enter with bubbles above their heads, you need to click on this bubble and select one of the tasks that appears, the amount of grey sections there are tells you how many tasks you have to complete before you earn the reward that is pictured in the middle of the bubble:

Each of these tasks has to be completed in a different workstation and only one sim can use a workstation at one time (new tasks will be added when you unlock new workstations)

Each time your sims complete a task (that section will turn from grey to green) a hospital coin bubble will appear above their head, click this and they will earn hospital coins and XPs, the experience points are towards levelling up, so they will level up quicker than if you just sent them to work.

you can just send them to work without going with them, they will still level up but will just level up slower and will not earn any resources

Once all the tasks have been completed all the grey sections will now appear green, click on this to receive your reward.

 Sometimes you may see a question mark appear in the bubble instead of a resource, this is a mystery resource, you will find out what it is when you complete the tasks (these are the important sims you need to help to get a badge):

What are these rewards used for?

The rewards are hospital coins and resources used to upgrade the different workstations at the hospital.

Some resources are not unlocked yet, build new workstations to unlock them

Can I send my sim to work on their own like a normal career? Will they still collect resources?

Yes you can send them to work on their own and they will still level up but they will not help any sims so will be unable to collect any resources.


What are the workstations?


  • Janitor Closet
  • Admin
  • Physical Aid

Once your sim reaches level 6 you can decide which career to specialise them in: either Nurse or Doctor, you will need to have a sim as each to be able to unlock the other workstations

NOTE: you can only have one sim as a nurse and one sim as a doctor


  • Pharmacy- level 6 Nurse
  • Triage- level 7 Nurse
  • Radiology- level 8 Nurse
  • Ward- level 9 Nurse

Only the nurse will be able to complete tasks to help sims that require one of the workstations above


  • General Practice- level 6 Doctor
  • Psychiatrist’s Office- level 7 Doctor
  • Research Laboratory- level 8 Doctor
  • Surgery Room- level 9 Doctor

Only the doctor will be able to complete tasks to help sims that require one of the workstations above


Each time you upgrade a workstation one of the following will happen:

  • The time taken to complete the task using that workstation will decrease
  • The amount of  coins you receive will increase  
  • The amount of XPs you receive will increase


Workstations can be upgraded 20 times each

NOTE: you can only upgrade one workstation at a time unless you are VIP


Why is it costing me LPs to build a workstation?

This is because you do not have enough resources to build or upgrade the workstation yet, just help sims and collect the resources to be able to build without it costing you LPs

Reaching Level 6

When a sim reaches level 6 in the medical staff career you are able to select a specialisation for them, either Nurse or Doctor

To do this; click on the occupations (career) tab, find the level 6 sim and choose either Nurse or Doctor:

NOTE: you can only have one sim on each of these, so only one sim can be a Nurse and only one sim can be a Doctor

Once they are at level 6 they will have tasks appear on the occupation tab, these tasks need to be completed to fulfil a profession badge. I had help 3 sims, to complete this I needed to help 3 sims that came to the hospital by completing all of the tasks for each sim:

Only one badge can be collected per shift and you need 3 badges before you will be able to reach level 7 (you cannot move on to level 7 without the 3 badges)

Each level requires you to complete more badges, you cannot level up until all the badges have been collected.

When you level up you unlock new workplaces- at level 6 if your sim is a Nurse you will be able to build the Pharmacy and if your sim is a Doctor you will be able to build the General Practice (if you do not have the right amount of resources it will say it costs LPs to build- just help sims to gain resources and it won’t cost you LPs when you have the resources needed)

 Professions Menu

You can access this using the button in the top left hand corner of your screen when you are at the hospital

Workplace Overview- here you can see the workstations you have currently unlocked, what level you are on and what resources you need to upgrade them

Storage- this is where you see your current resources collected and on the right hand side is your hospital coins, the hospital coins are used to increase your storage if you need to and trade for resources (which is in the next tab)

The simoleon symbol next to the resources in the storage means you can sell resources for simoleons, this might be helpful if you have run out of space in your storage and don’t have any hospital coins to increase the storage:

Resource Exchange- here you can either spin for resources using simoleons or LPs for the mega spin (if you are VIP 2) as well as trade hospital coins for resources: 
Once your sims have helped 15 people (you need to complete all the tasks for a person to have helped 1 person) in a day they will end their shift early and you earn bonus hospital coins and resources

NOTE: Other sims with this career will go to work but you will not be able to see or interact with them as you can only have two active sims at the hospital so I would suggest you send sims who are on the highest level in this career to work first so they can level up faster and complete the tasks that a lower level sim may be unable to do.

Orange Suitcase? Can’t send your sims to work?


This is because you have already sent them to work once today, if you were VIP level 1 you can send them to work at the hospital twice in a day (this will cost you 20LPs)

Wait until tomorrow and you will be able to send them to work again without being VIP.


Confused about these new profession careers? Give my Guide to Profession Careers post a read!

Other changes with this update:

When you reach level 10 in a profession career you unlock the work outfits for your sims to wear all the time! These can be found in the wardrobe once you reach level 10.

The social point flower now costs a ridiculous 20LPs instead of 5! Doesn’t look like you get a larger amount of social points from it either!

Instead of the free LPs and simoleon button that used to appear on the goal tab there is now a paperboy who appears in your town with a film reel in a bubble above his head, click on this to watch an advert, once you have watched it you will earn either furniture, simoleons, LPs or SPs!


Thanks for reading!

VOTE: Do you want EA to add more profession careers?

Hi everyone! I’m just wondering what you all think of these new profession careers (police and movie star), would you like the makers of the sims freeplay to add more to the game?


NOTE: I know I put ‘no they are boring!’ But even if you don’t think they are boring, they are time consuming or you have another reason for not liking them still vote no if you don’t want them to add anymore!


If you voted yes I would love to know why- I have heard a lot about why people have voted no but not much from the those who enjoy these new careers!
