The Sims Freeplay- Glam Mansion Live Event

Early Access to Beta Provided by EA/ Firemonkeys (Presented by EA GameChangers) may differ from actual version


Complete this brand new live event (starts 8th January) to unlock new glamorous items and if you complete the whole event in the time limit you unlock the glam mansion template. This event is only here for 9 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!

Want to skip the tasks list? Click here to head straight to the prizes!

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 Varnished Walnut 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!

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 10SP or restock for 2 uses which will take 10 seconds this time

Buy the Varnished Walnut Floor pack (click on the 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 drinks 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 arts and craft items as well if you speed it up!

This house can be found under the driveway homes tab and built on a standard or premium residence, the first one is free then they cost simoleons depending on how many houses you have already built. There are already 3 sports cars on the driveway (but you can still purchase the final car parking space for S1,500,000 to add 4 cars to this house)

Once you purchase the final space you will be able to add another car but you need to have 4 adult/senior sims living in this house to add the fourth car otherwise it will just switch their car to the new one you have just brought.

This house is very different on a standard and a premium residence! As you can see below the premium is double the size of the standard (the standard is sort of the premium split in half):

I’m not a fan of this house, if I managed to complete this event in the time limit I don’t think I am going to waste a spot building it. I do prefer how it looks on the premium to the standard (the standard looks a lot like a museum with all the displays!)

You also unlock:

Decorations Section: Gold (S135,000) and White (15LP) Wall Displays and Black (S625,000) and White (65LP)Jewelry Displays

Doors Section: Villa White Bifold Double (S95,000)

The 3 sports cars at the Glam Mansion can also be brought from the Car Dealership:

Pearl Purple Sports- 225LP

Luxury Black Sedan- S875,000

Red Convertible- S1,250,000

If you haven’t built the dealership yet these cars will be available once built

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 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.

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!

The Sims Freeplay- Urban Furniture Event

The Urban Furniture Event is back for 8 days from the 24th November. To get all the furniture you need to complete the woodworking hobby collection 7 times! You get a furniture pack at random 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.


Click here to see the prizes

If you completed this event last time it was available you will not get it this time, if you got some of the furniture sets last time you will only have to collect the ones you have left so if you completed it 4 times before you will only have to complete it 3 more times in 8 days

You need to buy a woodworking bench from the promotions r us store to complete this hobby (or use the ones at the community center)

You need to firstly accept this quest, 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 goal tab.

Once you have said yes you have to complete the collection 7 times in 8 days! (not easy to do!)



-have more than one sim working on it (the shortest option is 5 hours so have as many sims as possible trying to complete this)
-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- they should level up quickly while the event is taking place!
-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 probably 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 Mobile- Neighborhood Update

Presented by EA GameChangers

The latest Sims Mobile update (coming out 26th November) is adding 3 new house lots to the game, perfect for players who love to build and decorate houses but hate demolishing them (like me!)

New Town Map

The map looks slightly different, there is no longer the house location, instead there is a house button in the right corner to take you to all the house lots:

Building A New House Lot

Once you reach level 18 you will unlock the 3 new house lots in Briny Heights, the price to build each lot varies (it increases each time you build one):

  • 2nd lot- costs S40,000 and takes 8 hours to build (but can spend 250 simcash to build instantly instead)
  • 3rd lot- costs S100,000 and takes 2 days to build (but can spend 500 simcash to build instantly instead)
  • 4th lot- costs S250,000 and takes 7 days to build (but can spend 750 simcash to build instantly instead)

Each house lot has a slightly different background and there are still grass patches/expansions to clear up but these should cost less in this update and you start with more space anyway (check out my land expansions post here to see how much they all cost)

You will be able to add 12 sims to each house but you still can only have 4 playable sims in total, I really think they should make it possible to change who your playable sim is without having to delete current playable sims from the game

Moving Sims

In Briny Heights when you click on a house you can see all the sims who live there, click go there to visit the house or click on a sim and then on a different house to move them to that house- you can even move out children to live on their own!

Family Portrait

You can now buy more family portraits in the wall decorations section to place in each house. When you click on the portrait you will see each household, click on the arrow to scroll through the households (playable sims will have the plumbob above their head)

You will see previous generations via a button in the corner of this screen but this isn’t separate for each household so you will see all your previous sims here

You can also see the family portrait by clicking on the house name in Briny Heights


Parties can only be hosted in the original house so make sure you have any party items you want your friends to use in this house

What else is new?

  • There is no longer the move out option when sims are retired, it is now just delete to avoid confusion
  • There is no longer a limit/count on objects in build and buy
  • Energy boosting items don’t need to be in every house, placing in one still gets the benefits in all houses!

I am so glad we can now build more than one house in the game! I haven’t changed my original house for so long as I don’t want to delete it but now I don’t have to! I would have liked to see more than 4 playable sims but I can see why it would be difficult to change that, hopefully in the future there will be an option to at least change which of our sims are playable and I would love to see more neighbourhoods with different themes and new themed items to go with them.

What are your thoughts on this update?
