The Sims Freeplay- Heart-Fluttering Hacienda Live Event

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


Starts 2nd February 2022

Complete this brand new live event (starts 2nd February 2022) to unlock Hacienda themed items and if you complete the whole event in the time limit you unlock the heart-fluttering Hacienda house template. 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!


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 Saltillo Tiles 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 Saltillo Tiles 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 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 SP, you will get the bonus arts and craft items 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 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!


Once the event is over it will convert your unused resources into simoleons, the conversion rate is half the amount of resources, for example, if you have 10,000 candles left over you will earn 5,000 simoleons, if you only have 1 of a resource left over you will only earn 1 simoleon. When a new live event becomes available you start from 0 resources


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- Long Hair Event

The Long Hair Event is back again for 7 days! It is available from the 16th January for all those players who didn’t manage to complete it before or who weren’t playing when this event was previously available (if you completed this before you will not get this event again)

This event unlocks long hairstyles for your female adult sims. To get all 9 long hairstyles you need to complete the fashion designer hobby collection 9 times in the 7 day time limit! You get a new hairstyle at random 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. Click here to see what the hairstyles look like

image

If you haven’t started the fashion designer hobby yet click here for details on how to complete the hobby

You need to firstly accept this quest, it will remove the fashion designs you have already created from the collection so you don’t get a head start.


If you click no you can start it from the active tasks tab, you will not get any extra time if you start this late.


IF YOU FOUND SOME OF THE HAIRSTYLES LAST TIME YOU WILL START FROM WHERE YOU GOT TO, IF YOU COMPLETED IT YOU WILL NOT GET THIS EVENT AGAIN

YOU NEED TO COMPLETE ALL FOUR ROWS (FIND ALL 12 FASHION PIECES) TO GET ONE HAIRSTYLE!


TIPS FOR FINDING THEM ALL IN THE TIME LIMIT:

-have more than one sim working on it, you can have as many sims as you want completing this hobby at once but you will need a fashion studio for each of them
-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 (don’t know if you already got a sim to level 6? If you have previously completed the collection you reached level 6 or you can see when you look at the hobby collection, if boxes are greyed out you haven’t completed it yet)
-remember to click start new collection on the fashion hobby collection once you have got all the pieces
-most importantly: just keep going! I know it’s annoying when you get the same one constantly (those heels are a nightmare!) but you will eventually get the ones you need.


My Long Hairstyles Review post contains pictures of all the hairstyles you unlock in this event
