The Sims Freeplay- The Secret Winter Wonderland Quest

The Secret Winter Wonderland Quest is back from the 11th April as a Player Favourite Quest, it was previously available as the 2015 Christmas Quest. You will be able to start this quest between the 11th-20th April 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:
You will then have 12 days to complete this quest to unlock the gingerbread house template. Each day there are a set of goals to complete to unlock icy furniture so there are 12 sets of goals to complete before the time is up.

If you completed this last time you will not get this quest again, if you started it last time but didn’t complete it you will have to start from the beginning this time but you will get a free one of each prize you have already unlocked. If you purchased the gingerbread house template from the online store but haven’t unlocked all prior prizes you will be able to complete this quest to unlock those.

You may have to wait between completing each set so you complete one set per day (this is different each time it returns, sometimes after completing a set you have to wait for a certain amount of time before being able to continue with the quest unless you are behind then you will move straight onto the next set once you have completed the previous whereas other times you can go straight on to the next set of goals once the previous is complete without waiting.

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!

What else?

  • The makers have made a few quality of life improvements to the game to make building easier:
    • Multistory Object Functionality– tall objects can now be placed inside, you can place items such as trees, plants, double height pillars and even a basketball court in mezzanines or on balconies: 
    • Home Store Category Visibility– for newer players who haven’t unlocked all the categories in buy mode yet you will now see some of these categories but they will be locked (greyed out) with instructions how to unlock them. To start you will see categories such as Patios, Infants and Toddlers but they are working on showing more in future updates: 
    • Wall Lamp Placement– this is my favourite change! Before you could only place a wall lamp on a square and you were unable to use that square on the floor for anything but now wall lamps now have the same placement functionality as paintings so you will be able to place items in front of them:

Check out my video on these improvements here

  • You will also be able to get double rewards from the paperboy between the 31st March- 6th April and 14th- 18th April:

The Sims Freeplay- Charming Barber Hair Hobby Event

The Charming Barber Hair Event to unlock male hairstyles for your adult sims is back from the 12th March! You have 7 days to complete the fashion designer hobby 8 times to unlock all the male hairstyles. You get a new hairstyle each time you complete the collection (find all 12 fashion items) once you unlock a hairstyle you get to keep it even if you don’t find them all.

If you completed this event last time you will not get it again, if you unlocked some of the hairstyles last time you will only have to find the ones you have left, for example, if you unlocked 7 hairstyles you will only have to complete the hobby one more time to get the last hairstyle.

Click here to see the hairstyles

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

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.

This screenshot was from a previous time this event was available, this time we only have 7 days

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.


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, 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.

The Sims Freeplay- Glam Mansion Live Event

The Glam Mansion Live Event is back from the 9th March to unlock 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. If you completed this event last time you won’t get it again, if you started this event 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!

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!
