The Sims Freeplay- Country Homestead Event

The country homestead event to unlock new furniture is back again for 9 days! To get all the furniture you need to complete the woodworking hobby collection 10 times! You get a country homestead furniture pack each time you complete it, once you unlock a furniture pack you get to keep it even if you don’t find them all. If you have never done the woodworking hobby click here for details.

This is the third time this event has been available, if you completed it last time you will not get this event again. If you won some of the packs last time then you will only have to unlock the ones you have left, for example, if you unlocked 5 packs last time you will only have 5 packs left to unlock this time.
You need to buy a woodworking bench from the promotions r us store to complete this (or use the ones at the community center)

You need to firstly accept this event, it will remove the woodwork 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 active tasks goal tab:

Once you have said yes you have to complete the collection 10 times in 10 days!

 

Confused about time limited hobby events? This video explains how they work:


YOU NEED TO COMPLETE ALL FOUR ROWS (FIND ALL 12 ITEMS) TO GET ONE FURNITURE PACK!!


TIPS FOR FINDING THEM ALL IN THE TIME LIMIT:

-have more than one sim working on it (the shortest option is now 5 hours)

-have at least one sim at level 6 or working on getting to level 6 if you haven’t done the hobby before so all pieces are unlocked then you can just keeping doing the 5 hour option over and over (if you have completed this hobby before you don’t need a sim to reach level 6 in this hobby again!)

-remember to click start new collection on the woodworking hobby collections list once you have got all the pieces so you can find them again

– don’t panic! They will bring it back again if you don’t manage to complete it this time, these events usually reappear a lot!
-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.

The Sims Freeplay- Mean Curls Hairstyles Review

This is my review of the hairstyles you unlock in the Mean Curls Time Limited Hobby Event, I will be ranking them from 9 to 1 with 1 being my favourite- this was really difficult as there is only one of these which I really don’t like!

If you completed this event in the time limit you will be able to find these hairstyles in your wardrobe for your adult female sims.

9. I don’t like how this one is flat at the top and the rest is curly- it just looks odd! It does look better from the back though.

8. This hairstyle is very current (it’s impossible to leave the house without seeing someone with this style) I’m just not very keen on this hairstyle!

7. Really interesting short hairstyle, looks great from the side, not such a fan of how it looks from the front. I really like it in the darker colours, I don’t think it looks as good on this sim in the natural brown but the purple really works!

6. I like this but it does look a bit like this sim has really dry damaged hair!

5. You get a surprise when you put this one on your sim as this hairstyle is braided on one side, again really modern and a nice style!

4. I prefer how it looks from the back rather than the front but I think the two tone colours work really well with this one

3. Beautiful style and it works well in all the colours!

2. Really love this, we needed some modern shorter hair! More like this in future please!

1. This is my absolute favourite, I think it works in all the colours- especially in the purpley colour (as shown in the image on the right)

Which one is your favourite?

Thanks for reading!

The Sims Freeplay- Mean Curls Hobby Event

Early Access to Beta Provided by EA/Firemonkeys


THIS EVENT IS NOW OVER


This event unlocks brand new hairstyles for your female adult sims! To get all 9 new hairstyles you need to complete the fashion designer hobby collection 9 times in 9 days! You get a new hairstyle each time you complete the collection (find all 12 fashion pieces), once you unlock a hairstyle you get to keep it even if you don’t find them all. 
If you have never done the fashion designer hobby click here for details.

You need to firstly accept this event, it will remove the fashion designs 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 active tasks tab, you will not get any extra time if you start this late.

If you already have a sim as a level 6 fashion designer (or previous have) then you will complete this a lot quicker as you aren’t waiting for all the designs to become unlocked.
It is really helpful to have loads of sims doing the hobby, and have them doing the 10 minute option over and over if possible!

Confused about time limited hobby events? This video explains how they work:


YOU NEED TO COMPLETE ALL FOUR ROWS TO GET ONE HAIRSTYLE!!

12 FASHION ITEMS= 1 HAIRSTYLE


TIPS FOR FINDING THEM ALL IN THE TIME LIMIT:

-have more than one sim working on it
-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 (if you have previously completed the collection you do not need to get another sim to level 6 to complete this)
-remember to click start new collection on the fashion hobby collections list once you have got all the pieces
-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.


Hairstyles– there are 11 of each style available once you unlock them, each time you complete the collection you will unlock one hairstyle:

The Sims Freeplay- Wedding Belles Live Event

Early Access to Beta Provided by EA/ Firemonkeys- may differ from actual version


THIS EVENT IS NOW OVER

ONCE THE 7 DAY TIME LIMIT IS UP YOU WILL HAVE 2 DAYS TO PURCHASE ANY PACKS YOU HAVE LEFT– you will not be able to collect anymore arts and crafts items or coins, you have to use the resources you have, if you don’t have enough resources all you can do is use social points to buy the requirements or wait until the event returns!


This latest live event is wedding themed, start now to unlock brand new items, hair styles, outfits and even a wedding venue house template so your sims can get married in a proper ceremony! Update your game to the latest version now to access this new event!
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! If you haven’t already you need to update your game to the wedding belles update for this event to appear

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

This event is only here for 12 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!

NOTE: I completed this on the Early Access Beta so some information may be slightly different but I will update the post as I complete the event.

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 wedding cake event button in the corner of the screen)

Here you will see you have collected enough items to unlock the Flower Power 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 flower power pack (click on the wedding cake 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 wedding cake 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 gems as well if you speed it up!

Stuck on these tasks? Watch my video here:

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

 NOTE:

  • if you store the station you will lose all the stock so when you place it again you will need to restock

34.Wedding Ceremony and Reception (Wedding Venue Template!)

You will only unlock the wedding ceremony and reception if you manage to buy all the other personal progress prizes in the time limit, the first one built is free after that they will cost simoleons. I absolutely love this house, the ceremony space in the garden is elegant, the first dancefloor in the dining room looks beautiful at night and then your sims can party the night away on the second floor!
  

 

You can built it on a standard or premium house lot, the only difference is there is a larger gap between the seating for the ceremony and the house. It isn’t often I say this but I do actually prefer the standard one   

You also unlock the industrial grill, fridge (kitchen section) and countertops (countertops section) as well as the wedding instruments and two bars (decorations section)

Watch my wedding ceremony and reception tour here:

How do you get your sims married here?
1. Your sims can already be married and still use the ceremony to get remarried or your two sims need to be engaged with the option to get married in the interactions between those two sims
2. Have your guests seated- select watch ceremony on the chairs
3. You will need someone to officiate the wedding, have this sim click on the wedding arbour and select the option to officiate wedding
4. Get the first sim into position, have this sim select wait for partner on the wedding arbour
5. Time to get married! Have the second sim select get married on the wedding arbour
6. A pop up will appear asking what how you want your sims to live in when they are married (this is the sims last name they will take)
7.They will walk down the aisle, stare into each others eyes for a few minutes, kiss and will be married!
8. If your sims weren’t already married a pop up will appear to say they are now married- you can remarry them again and again here (as long as its to the same sim!)

Watch their wedding video here:


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


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- Wedding Belles Update!

Early Access to Beta Provided by EA/Firemonkeys- may differ from actual version


Say ‘I do’ to this latest wedding themed update! As usual the links to the event posts will be added below when they become available. The update is now available so update your game to access the new content!

 

Wedding Belles Live Event  (no longer available) complete this new live event in the time limit to unlock the beautiful wedding ceremony and reception house template- your sims can actually have a proper wedding in this house! Unsure how to complete live events in the time limit? Read this post for tips!

You can see how wonderful it is in my house tour here:

What is new with Live Events? If you often forget which house you have put your arts and crafts stations then this is really going to help you! You can now find where you have put them by clicking on the station in the event tab and selecting find, it will take you to the lot where it has been placed!

 

CURRENTLY AVAILABLE-> Mean Curls– A NEW Long Hair Hobby Event to unlock brand new hairstyles for your female adult sims

What has changed? You can now place most items anywhere that previously could only be placed inside or outside! Some mainly larger items still can only be placed in a certain place, for example trees still have to be placed outside.

How can you tell if it can be placed? It will appear green if you can place it there and red if you cannot place it there so have a play around if you are unsure about where you can place an item!

Make sure you update your game when the update is released to access these new changes and events when they begin!

NOTE: if you play on a Windows Phone you will not get this update as Firemonkeys have stopped updating the game for Windows Phones.
