The Sims Freeplay- Chic Boutique Live Event

The Chic Boutique Live Event has returned for 10 days from the 21st May, complete this live event to unlock boutique items to create your own clothing store! If you completed this event last time you won’t get it again, if you started it last time but didn’t finish it you will start from where you got to last 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 dresses button in the corner of the screen)

Here you will see you have collected enough items to unlock the Boutique Wallpapers and Floors 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 boutique wallpapers and floors pack (click on the dresses 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 party 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!

Constructor Coins

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 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. 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!

The Sims Freeplay- SimChase

Early Access to Beta Provided by EA/ Firemonkeys (Presented by EA GameChangers)


SimChase is a TV game show styled event starting with Season 1: Mother’s Day Madness on April 30th where over the course of 7 days your sim is tasked with completing a set of daily challenges to reach a checkpoint and win a checkpoint prize but be quick as you are competing against a rival sim and if they reach the checkpoint before you they will win the checkpoint prize.

When a SimChase event begins a pop up will appear: 

You will then need to check in at the nightclub with the SimChase host Kam Ham (click on the SimChase symbol that appears above his head): 

Go to SimChase menu- from the active tasks tab you will find the SimChase goal, click on this to open the goal and then click on the blue SimChase symbol that appears next to the goal to get to the SimChase menu:

Here you will see a bar at the top with your sim and the rival sims progress and it also shows you the prizes for each episode (there are 7 episodes to complete, one episode a day): 

Scroll down and you will see the challenges you need to complete for that episode: 

I’m not going to post about the challenges as they may be different for you and they will be different for each season but if you are stuck look for the SimChase symbol on objects around your sims house:

Complete all the challenges on the list in a day, remember:

  • You can complete them in any order but you have to complete one at a time, once you start a SimChase challenge you need to complete it before you can start another one
  • If more than one sim is required to complete a challenge make sure you use as many as possible to complete it as quickly as possible
  • If you want to speed up with SP check the SimChase menu first and see how much it will cost you to skip a challenge or the whole episode as it may be cheaper than speeding up the task (you can only skip a challenge once you have started it)

  • All the Mastery tasks require you to send a sim to the park and click on the sim with the SimChase symbol above their head- these tasks cost simoleons or SP to begin (waste of money if you ask me!!)

  • If you want to get the prize you need to complete all the challenges in an episode before the rival sim (the rival sim doesn’t appear to be a real player so it is going to be very difficult to complete before them as they don’t need to go to work/school or sleep!)
  • If you manage to complete an episode you either win a prize or a chase token:

Watch me completing a SimChase season here:

Chase tokens are used on the second tab in the SimChase menu to spin for roadblocks so you can progress faster or you can throw obstacles in the way of your rival sim to slow them down:

These roadblocks cannot be used against you, they can only be used on the rival sim

The third tab explains what all the different symbols mean: 

SimChase Frequently Asked Questions:

How do I start SimChase? SimChase will start automatically and is only available for a limited amount of time so there won’t always be one available in the game

Where is the SimChase event menu? The SimChase menu is accessed via the active tasks. Tap the blue SimChase icon next to the SimChase task to open the menu

What is the bar at the top of the SimChase menu? That is the progress bar and it shows your sim and your rival’s progress through the SimChase event, completing challenges makes you progress on the bar

Who is the other sim at the top of the progress bar? That is the rival who your sim is competing against. They aren’t a real player but if they reach the checkpoint first they will earn the prize not you and you will need to try and catch up to win the next prize, obviously because they aren’t real they make regular progress whereas we have real life to deal with too!

What does the circle next to the rival’s portrait mean? The circle is a timer that displays how close they are to finishing their current challenge. The grey part on the progress bar shows how much they will progress when they finish that challenge

What prizes do I earn if I win? Chase tokens are always a prize for completing some episodes but the main prizes will vary by Season, you can see on the progress bar the prize you will win for reaching each checkpoint but remember you will have to reach the checkpoint before the rival otherwise they will get the prize instead of you

If I lose an episode do I have to complete the rest of the challenges that day or do I go straight onto the next day? You will have to complete all the challenges on the previous day before you can move onto the next day so really you have no chance of completing this without hundreds of SP if you are behind

If I don’t use up all my chase tokens before the event is over can I use them next time? No, the next time a SimChase Season begins you will start with zero chase tokens again


I found it incredibly difficult to write this post as I do not like the idea of SimChase events at all, they are just a complete money grab in my opinion. I completed this on the early access version and I am not even going to try and complete it on my actual game because it is just set up to make us fail unless we spend hundreds of SP! I added up the times for completing episode 7 and it would have taken me 23 hours without SP which is alright for the rival as they don’t need to sleep!! The mastery tasks are what annoys me the most, why should I pay thousands of simoleons or SP to be allowed to complete a challenge? I know they need to make money but they are becoming as bad as The Sims Mobile with their money grabbing actions, being forced to spend money does not make anyone want to spend money!

  • Additional Space Three: S1,500,000

Once you purchase an additional space you will be able to add another car but you need to have more than one adult/senior sim living in this house to add more than one car otherwise it will just switch their car to the new one you have just brought. For example if you wanted 3 cars in this house you need 3 adult or senior sims living in this house.

The only difference between this house on a standard and a premium residence is the garden, there is outdoor furniture behind the bungalow. You will find the in-ground spa available on both the standard and premium residence which can be moved:

Completing this event also unlocks the in-ground spas in the store (check out my post on how to add and use the spas here) as well as Grey Concrete pool and patio paving, Tall Oak Slats (window), Oak Slats Double (door), Black Cube Partition, Black Fan and Gold Rubix Mirror Double (decorations) Oak Sunside Table (dining room) Black Danging Lamp (lighting) and Oak Floorboards (flooring)

Watch my tour of the bungalow here:


Constructor Coins

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 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. 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.

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


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!
