The Sims Freeplay- Hair Today, Gone Tomorrow Live Event

The Hair Today, Gone Tomorrow Live Event is back! You have 10 days to unlock the hairstyles and salon themed items!

Live Events are very similar to a community event but this time you don’t need help from everyone who plays the sims freeplay to unlock the prizes, there are only personal prizes this time!

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

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

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!

 

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 hair event button in the corner of the screen)

Here you will see you have collected enough items to unlock the Fancy ‘Foliage’ 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 10SPs or restock for 2 uses which will take 10 seconds this time

Buy the fancy ‘foliage’ pack (click on the hair 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 closet 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 SPs, you will get the bonus resources as well if you speed it up!

Stuck on these tasks? Watch my video here:

Restocking

Each station (apart from the first candle one) comes with a stock of 9 which means you can use the station 9 times before it needs to be restocked (if you got your stations out of your inventory they will all need restocking first (apart from the first candle one)) When you need to restock you will have two options:

  • Restock 18 uses which happens instantly but will cost you 10SPs

or

  • Restock 9 uses which will take you 2 hours 30 minutes but will be free

NOTE:

  • if you store the station you will lose all the stock so when you place it again you will need to restock
  • if you cancel making something using a station you will lose that stock so if you had one stock left and then you cancelled that action you would need to restock before you can create anymore arts and crafts items

The prize progress is how far you have got on this event, the more arts and crafts items you make the more prizes you will unlock

NOTE: the bar at the top of the personal progress tab shows you how close you are to unlocking an item, the more arts and crafts items you collect the more the bar will fill up.

Good Luck Everyone!


Constructor Coins

You earn constructor coins by:

Personal Progress prizes

Completing Daily Goals

Coin Plant Patches

Earning Construtor 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 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 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.

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.

The Sims Freeplay- Sleepwear Hobby Event

The time limited hobby event to unlock sleepwear for all your sims is back but only for 11 days! You have to complete the catwalk model collection 5 times to unlock all the sleepwear, each time you complete the collection you unlock a sleepwear for a different life stage. If you have never done the catwalk model hobby before my post here will help

If you completed this event last time you will not get it again. If you unlocked some sleepwear last time you will start from where you got to so if you managed to get 4 sets last time you will only need to complete the collection once more this time!

TIP: you can send another sim to a neighbours town to try and complete quicker (as only one sim can do it in your town at a time)

You need to firstly accept this event, it will remove the poses you have already got on the collection so you don’t get a head start.

If you say no you can start it from the goal tab.

NOTE: YOU NEED TO COMPLETE THESE BEFORE YOU CAN START THIS EVENT:

  • Build the mall (there isn’t much point starting to build this now if you haven’t already, just wait for this event to return in the future!)
  • Complete the sunset mall quest
  • Unlock area 2
  • Build the catwalk

 The guide to the mall post shows you how much it costs to build area 2 and the catwalk.


12 POSES= 1 SLEEPWEAR PACK


TIPS FOR FINDING THEM ALL IN THE TIME LIMIT:

-have a sim in a neighbours town so you can have two sims working on it at once instead of one

-have at least one sim at level 6 or working on getting to level 6 so all poses are unlocked, you may need to use LPs to speed your way through the levels to have the chance of unlocking all the sleepwear

-if you do want to speed it up, wait until the timer is 1 hour 59 minutes or below then it will only cost you 1LP instead of 2! This post may help if you want a quick way to earn LPs.

-remember to click start new collection on the top of the hobby collection list once you have got all the pieces otherwise you won’t find any new items, this post tells you how to do that.

-most importantly: just keep going! I know it’s annoying when you get the same one constantly but you will eventually get the ones you need.


Where can I find the sleepwear? In the wardrobe and create a sim under sleepwear

When you change their sleepwear they will change into it when every they go to sleep or when you click change into sleepwear on a wardrobe.

Toddler sleepwear

image

Teen sleepwear

image

you can mix and match with the teen sleepwear: choose a onesie and socks for a male, choose a top, bottoms and slippers for a female.

image

image

Senior sleepwear

image

again you can mix and match the top and bottoms and choose some slippers

image

image

Preteen sleepwear

image

again you can mix and match the top and bottoms and choose some slippers

image

image

the tops could be worn on their own as nighties

Adult sleepwear

image

image

they could wear the shorts on their own

image

Is it worth completing in time? Definitely! The sleepwear is so much better than your sims sleeping in their underwear!

Thanks for reading!

The Sims Freeplay- Community Challenges Explained!

Community Challenges are a weekly task that we all perform in order to reach a community target, once we reach the target we all unlock a prize! These were added to the game on the 21st May, the Spring Love Community Challenge contains 4 weeks of challenges, in this post I will explain how they work and how to complete them

The aim of Community Challenges is The Sims Freeplay team set a challenge on the Monday for everyone playing to complete before the following Sunday, so The Spring Love Community Challenge started on the 21st May and will end on the 27th May.

The community (everyone who plays) needs to complete the challenge in the time limit for everyone to receive a special reward, so we are all working together to unlock the prize, in The Spring Love Community Challenge we will all unlock the Harajuku Hair Pack if we purchase 5 million outfits from the mall

A pop up appears at the start of the week to show you what the reward is but you can also find out on The Sims Freeplay’s facebook and twitter pages if you miss the pop up

You will also be able to see the progress of the challenge in pop ups that appear when you open the game throughout the week but strangely you cannot see the progress any other way in the game

The Spring Community Challenge Week 1- Love Yourself: Purchase 5 million items in the mall

Prize: Harajuku Hair Pack

How do I complete this? If you have built the mall and some stores you can click on browse clothes on a wardrobe then click on the second tab which is store, from there you can find items to buy to contribute to this challenge. If we reach 5 million before the week ends on Sunday we will unlock the Harajuku Hair Pack

NOTE: You don’t have to purchase all 5 million yourself, everyone who plays is completing this

Spring Community Challenge Week 2- The Perfect Spring Date: Perform 3 million ‘be romantic’ actions in the restaurant or nightclub

Prize: Spring Romance Bundle and 1 key!

How do I complete this? Send two sims to the restaurant or nightclub and select a pink ‘be romantic- 1 minute’ interaction between the two sims

NOTE: You don’t have to do all 3 million interactions yourself, everyone who plays is completing this

We completed week 2’s challenge! You have 3 days to claim your prize from the online store for 1 simoleon:

What happens if I already have the prize? Unfortunately there are currently no other prizes so if you have the prize already you won’t receive anything

Do I still get the prize if I don’t participate? Yes, if we reach the goal but you don’t take part you can still get the prize

Where can I see the progress? The only way to see the progress is when the pop up appears throughout the week on day 3, 5 and 6, some people say they can see it on the billboard by the park on the town map but I can’t,  I only see the pop up

Where do I get the prize? If we complete in the time limit you can find them in the online store

What do I think about this? The idea seems good but it definitely feels rushed, we all complained about the preteen boxes costing 4 keys each so we have been given this as some sort of apology! I think reducing the amount of keys needed would have been better (update- they have now done this so these boxes cost one key instead of 4, if you brought with 4 keys you will get 3 keys back!) It would be improved if we could see a progress bar on the game instead of waiting for pop ups to appear, I think if we could see how we are doing we would have more incentive to partake in it and more people would join in as I think some people might have missed this.

If you have any other questions about community challenges let me know and I will try and find out the answer for you!

Thanks for reading!
