The Sims Freeplay- The Styles of Time Quest

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


The Styles of Time Quest is back from the 4th November as a Player Favourite Quest! Which means you will be able to start this quest between the 4th-24th November to get the full time limit. These are optional so you will need to click on the green play button next to the title of the event in the active tasks tab to start: 

The time limit for this quest is 6 days, there are 3 sets of goals to complete, completing each set earns you a prize of hairstyles or hats. If you have completed this quest already you won’t get it again, if you started it last time unfortunately you will have to start from the beginning this time (but you will get 5LP for completing a set again)

If you have unlocked a hairstyle from this quest in the simtown market you will still need to complete that set before you can move onto the next set of goals (but you will get 5LP for completing a set again)

The Sims Freeplay- Boutique Hair Event

Sorry for the late post! This event returned yesterday (1st November) for 7 days. To get all of these 9 long hairstyles you need to complete the fashion designer hobby collection 9 times in 7 days. You get a new hairstyle each time you complete it, once you unlock a hairstyle you get to keep it even if you don’t find them all. If you haven’t done the fashion designer hobby before click here for details.

If you completed this event last time it will not appear for you again. If you got some hairstyles last time you will start from the point you reached so if you got 5 last time you only need to complete the collection 4 times this time.

You need to buy a fashion studio from the promotions r us store to complete this hobby

image

Click here to see the hairstyles

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

image

If you say no you can start it from the goal tab:

Once you have said yes you now need to complete the collection nine times but you will not get extra time if you start late


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

12 FASHION PIECES= COMPLETE COLLECTION AND UNLOCKS 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!

20140821-164936.jpg

-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 6 hour or 12 hour options) 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: Can be found in the wardrobe for female adults under hair for free

There are 12 different colours of each hairstyle; Black, Blonde, Blue, Light Brown, Dark Brown, Red, Grey, Violet, Pink, Bleach Blonde, Orange, Dark Purple

The Sims Freeplay- Downtown Developer Event

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


Collect resources to build a brand new high rise apartment block in the Downtown Developer Event! Once you have completed the Simtown Express Discovery Quest you will be able to begin this event, but there is no rush, this event will be available whenever you are ready to start it

The aim of this event is to collect all the Granite, Glass and Gold you need at different locations around Simtown, these resources are then used to build the luxury high rise apartment block. Firstly you need to go to Downtown (use the Simtown Express to get there) and you will find the development icon next to the hospital, click on this to get the option to demolish the buildings that are there:

Once demolished the event will begin and the first time limit will start, there are time limits in this event but there are different time limits for each stage, keep reading for more information on this

You will then get tasks to complete, these will explain how this event works so make sure you read them:

  • Open downtown developer menu- click on the orange symbol next to the downtown developer task to get to this menu, the menu is where you can see your progress in this event:

At the top you will see all the stages to complete in this event, then you will see the permit you currently have and below you can see the current stage requirements, right now only granite is required to complete stage one but this screenshot below shows a later stage that requires more resources:

  • View major stage deadlines- if you go back to the menu, on the bar at the top you will see under stage 2 it says ‘3 days’ this means you have 3 days to fill the bar by collecting the resources to reach stage 2 to be on track in this event, if you don’t complete a stage in the time limit you will be forced to spend simoleons to progress in this event (I don’t know how many simoleons it will cost as it varies depending on what level you are on, so if you are on level 55 expect a high cost!)

The time limits for each stage are:

  • Reach stage 2– 3 days
  • Reach stage 4– 6 days
  • Reach stage 6– 6 days
  • Reach stage 9 (final stage)– 15 days

These stages above are major upgrades so the building site will change when you reach these milestones, you will also receive other rewards when you reach each of these stages:

  • Stage 2– 2LP, 2SP and 1 Glass (which can then be used in the next stage)
  • Stage 4– 5LP, 5SP and 1 Gold (which can then be used in the next stage)
  • Stage 6– 10LP, 10SP and 1 Gold (which can then be used in the next stage)
  • Stage 9/Grand Prize– Empty 3 Story Apartment Lot, S20,000, 20LP and 15SP

  • Go to the resource location- every 24 hours you will receive a new permit to collect a resource at a different location, go back to the menu to find where you need to go and you can click ‘visit’ on the location to go straight there:

The location will be different for you and it will only be places you have already unlocked so if you haven’t build downtown high school yet you won’t get a permit to go there

  • Assign a sim to an x- once at the location you need to find the 2 x spots, have a sim click on one of these and select Collect Shard- 3 hours 55 minutes:

 

Only two sims can collect shards at one time and a shard does not make a full piece, depending on the resource you need to collect different amounts of shards to make one resource:

  • Granite– collect 2 shards to make 1 granite
  • Glass– collect 3 shards to make 1 glass
  • Gold– collect 4 shards to make 1 gold

You need to collect a full piece within 24 hours to be able to use that towards your next permit, if you only collect one shard then you will lose this

  • Review resource progress- click on the menu to check your progress, the current requirements show you how many resources you need to complete that stage:

If you want to skip with SP this is the best place to do it as it is more expensive if you skip from the task action itself or the permit section of the menu:

  • Review the major stage timer- here you can see the next stage is locked:

If you miss one stage you can still catch up at the next stage as the time limit for the next stage does not start until you have completed the previous, for example, if you miss out on completing the 4th stage in the 6 day time limit once you have paid your simoleons to move on you will still get the full 6 day time limit to reach the 6th stage

If you do complete the final stage in the 15 day time limit you will unlock the 3 Story Luxury Apartment that can be built on the high rise block, you still unlock the apartment block if you don’t complete this event in the time limit, once complete you will be able to build the empty 3 story to build your own apartment:

I warn you now, this building is hideous when complete! But the 3 story luxury apartment is very nice, if you don’t like it you can build the empty 3 story or even one of the original penthouse apartments

Take a tour of the 3 Story Luxury Apartment here:

Watch my walkthrough of this event here:

Remember:

  • You need to have completed the Simtown Express Quest to unlock Downtown before you can start this event
  • This event is available forever so there is no rush to begin it but once you do start the first timer will begin, then it should take 30 days to complete
  • A new permit is issued every 24 hours

  • The location will be different for you and it will only be places you have already unlocked so you don’t have to build any new locations to find the resources
  • Only two sims can collect shards at once

  • A shard is not a whole resource, if you don’t collect a whole resource in 24 hours you will lose the shards you have collected:
    • 2 Granite Shards= 1 Granite
    • 3 Glass Shards= 1 Glass
    • 4 Gold Shards= 1 Gold
  • The next major timer doesn’t start until the previous major milestone is complete
  • There are 9 stages to complete, completing each stage earns you rewards:
    • Stage 1- 2LP
    • Stage 2- Major upgrade, 2LP, 2SP and 1 Glass (which can then be used in the next stage)
    • Stage 3- 5SP
    • Stage 4- Major upgrade, 5LP, 5SP and 1 Gold (which can then be used in the next stage)
    • Stage 5- 10SP
    • Stage 6- Major upgrade, 10LP, 10SP and 1 Gold (which can then be used in the next stage)
    • Stage 7- S10,000
    • Stage 8- 15LP
    • Stage 9/Final Stage- Empty 3 Story Apartment Lot, S20,000, 20LP and 15SP
  • If you earn enough resources before the 24 hours is over then you will have to wait for the rest of the 24 hours before you will get your next permit:


What do I think of this event? I actually really like the idea of this but yet again this is another event where unless you can play all day then you won’t be able to complete it in the time limit, the fact you have to pay if you miss a time limit I think is ridiculous and it is bound to cost thousands of simoleons. Until I actually play this properly on my own game I can’t really comment on how difficult it actually is but I will definitely be making a post after I attempt to complete it!
