The Gallery Francais Live Event to unlock art gallery themed items is back! If you complete the whole event in the time limit you unlock the art gallery template. If you started this event last time but didn’t finish you will start from where you got to last time, if you completed this event last time you won’t be able to complete it again. 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!

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 Gallery 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!

Each station (apart from the first candle one) comes with a stock of 7 which means you can use the station 7 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 10SP
- Restock 9 uses which will take you 2 hours 30 minutes but will be free
- 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

22.Gallery Francais (French Gallery)- you can only claim this pack if you have purchased all the other packs in this live event
You can find this gallery under the real estate homes tab and it can be built on a standard or a premium residence, the first one is free then they cost simoleons depending on how many houses you have already built.
I’m in two minds about this gallery, the building is gorgeous but I don’t want to waste a house lot with another building that isn’t a house! They really need to add a new area of simtown for business builds.
The only difference between the standard and the premium residence is the garden:
You also unlock:
Patio and Balcony Railings Sections: Cream (S5,900) and Brown (S5,900) Gallery Rails
Doors Section: Black (S115,000) and Brown (11LP) Gated Doors
Windows Section: Black (S80,000) and Brown (8SP) Gated Arches, Gold (S99,000) and Brown (9SP) Framed Windows and Gold (S102,500) and Brown (10LP) Framed Arches
Stairs Section: Red (S97,500) and Blue (9SP) Grand Gallery Stairs – I love these! I am really happy we unlock these rather than having to buy them separately!

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.

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!
