The Sims Freeplay- Hearth of Stone Christmas 2019 Quest

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


STARTS 12th DECEMBER

Your sims are just waiting to see what disaster will occur this Christmas, join them for this 13 day quest from the 12th December! There are 13 sets of goals to complete in the 13 day time limit so there is a set of goals to complete each day, if you complete the quest in the time limit you win the spectacular lakehouse template! Make sure you update your game to the 2019 lake house Christmas update to be able to start this quest

 

You have to wait between completing each set so you complete one set per day, after completing a set you have to wait for a certain amount of time before being able to continue with the quest (the time varies depending on how long you take) unless you are behind then you will move straight onto the next set once you have completed the previous.

Watch my step by step walkthrough video of this quest here

TIP: there are lots of tasks that need to be done more than once, this year you can use LP to skip all these tasks or you can still use the maximum sims you can to complete the task but remember if you just use one sim you will run out of time

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

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?

The Sims Freeplay- Downtown Developer Event

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


GLITCH: sometimes after you have put your sims on to collect shards they won’t collect them when you return hours later, while they work on a fix- move the sims next to the x before you click on the x and make sure you see them starting the action before you close the game or go somewhere else in simtown. If you have missed out on the time limited prizes due to this issue please contact the makers to see if you can be compensated.


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:

GLITCH: sometimes after you have put your sims on to collect shards they won’t collect them when you return hours later, while they work on a fix- move the sims next to the x before you click on the x and make sure you see them starting the action before you close the game or go somewhere else in simtown. If you have missed out on the time limited prizes due to this issue please contact the makers to see if you can be compensated.

 

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

GLITCH: sometimes after you have put your sims on to collect shards they won’t collect them when you return hours later, while they work on a fix- move the sims next to the x before you click on the x and make sure you see them starting the action before you close the game or go somewhere else in simtown. If you have missed out on the time limited prizes due to this issue please contact the makers to see if you can be compensated.

  • 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!
