The Sims Freeplay- Wedding Belles Live Event

Early Access to Beta Provided by EA/ Firemonkeys- may differ from actual version


This latest live event is wedding themed, start now to unlock brand new items, hair styles, outfits and even a wedding venue house template so your sims can get married in a proper ceremony! Update your game to the latest version now to access this new event!
Live Events are very similar to a community event but this time you don’t need help from everyone who plays the sims freeplay to unlock the prizes, there are only personal prizes! If you haven’t already you need to update your game to the wedding belles update for this event to appear

Check out my Guide to Completing Live Events (including tips!) HERE!

This event is only here for 12 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

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!

NOTE: I completed this on the Early Access Beta so some information may be slightly different but I will update the post as I complete the event.

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 wedding cake event button in the corner of the screen)

Here you will see you have collected enough items to unlock the Flower Power 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 10SPs or restock for 2 uses which will take 10 seconds this time

Buy the flower power pack (click on the wedding cake 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 wedding cake 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 gems as well if you speed it up!

34.Wedding Ceremony and Reception (Wedding Venue Template!)

You will only unlock the wedding ceremony and reception if you manage to buy all the other personal progress prizes in the time limit, the first one built is free after that they will cost simoleons. I absolutely love this house, the ceremony space in the garden is elegant, the first dancefloor in the dining room looks beautiful at night and then your sims can party the night away on the second floor!
  

 

You can built it on a standard or premium house lot, the only difference is there is a larger gap between the seating for the ceremony and the house. It isn’t often I say this but I do actually prefer the standard one   

You also unlock the industrial grill, fridge (kitchen section) and countertops (countertops section) as well as the wedding instruments and two bars (decorations section)

Watch my wedding ceremony and reception tour here:

How do you get your sims married here?
1. Your sims can already be married and still use the ceremony to get remarried or your two sims need to be engaged with the option to get married in the interactions between those two sims
2. Have your guests seated- select watch ceremony on the chairs
3. You will need someone to officiate the wedding, have this sim click on the wedding arbour and select the option to officiate wedding
4. Get the first sim into position, have this sim select wait for partner on the wedding arbour
5. Time to get married! Have the second sim select get married on the wedding arbour
6. A pop up will appear asking what how you want your sims to live in when they are married (this is the sims last name they will take)
7.They will walk down the aisle, stare into each others eyes for a few minutes, kiss and will be married!
8. If your sims weren’t already married a pop up will appear to say they are now married- you can remarry them again and again here (as long as its to the same sim!)

Watch their wedding video here:


Constructor Coins

You earn constructor coins by:

Personal Progress prizes

Completing Daily Goals

Coin Plant Patches

Earning Construtor 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 LPs, I can then turn the LPs into SPs using the social point plant on a normal garden patch- this was when it cost 5LPs- the social point plant now costs 20LPs 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


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.

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.

The Sims Freeplay- Wedding Belles Update!

Early Access to Beta Provided by EA/Firemonkeys- may differ from actual version


Say ‘I do’ to this latest wedding themed update! As usual the links to the event posts will be added below when they become available. The update is now available so update your game to access the new content!

 

AVAILABLE NOW-> Wedding Belles Live Event complete this new live event in the time limit to unlock the beautiful wedding ceremony and reception house template- your sims can actually have a proper wedding in this house! Unsure how to complete live events in the time limit? Read this post for tips!

You can see how wonderful it is in my house tour here:

What is new with Live Events? If you often forget which house you have put your arts and crafts stations then this is really going to help you! You can now find where you have put them by clicking on the station in the event tab and selecting find, it will take you to the lot where it has been placed!

 

A NEW Long Hair Hobby Event (not available yet) to unlock brand new hairstyles for your female adult sims

What has changed? You can now place most items anywhere that previously could only be placed inside or outside! Some mainly larger items still can only be placed in a certain place, for example trees still have to be placed outside.

How can you tell if it can be placed? It will appear green if you can place it there and red if you cannot place it there so have a play around if you are unsure about where you can place an item!

Make sure you update your game when the update is released to access these new changes and events when they begin!

NOTE: if you play on a Windows Phone you will not get this update as Firemonkeys have stopped updating the game for Windows Phones.

RESULTS: Do You Enjoy Live Events?

A week ago I created a poll asking what you thought of live events and here are the results:

 

32% of those who voted said yes, they do enjoy live events! I’m not really surprised about that although personally I think these live events are too regular, we have had one an update since January now (and there were actually two in the dance party update!) but they are yet to repeat any which I know many of us really want them to- need to get my hands on that chateau! I do enjoy them but they are getting very repetitive so I didn’t even really try with the custom closets one, more than doing the shortest option whenever I could- I usually get up in the night too but I couldn’t face it again! However I will say I did manage to complete it even though I didn’t really try so it looks like they have heard our comments about these events being impossible and are improving them.

Thanks to all of you who voted!

The Sims Mobile- My Opinion

#Sponsored by EA GameChangers


A few weeks ago I was invited to Hollywood, LA by EA for EA Play, there I was able to try out the new Sims Mobile game, give my feedback to the developers and capture some content to share with you all over the next few months, I had a great time meeting other gamers and getting my first chance to play the game so thank you for flying me out for the event EA!

Not heard of The Sims Mobile yet? Check out this post!

NOTE: the game hasn’t been released worldwide yet, it is currently only available in Brazil so is still very much a working progress which means changes are still being made so the final product may turn out very different from the version I had access to at EA Play.
When I first opened the game I was really impressed with the graphics, I know some of you aren’t keen as it is very different from The Sims Freeplay but I think that is a good thing, they need to look different as they are separate games, if this game looked like The Sims Freeplay players would think it was just a copy and wouldn’t play it. Instead they have gone for a look similar to The Sims 4 which I really like! (not to say I don’t like The Sims Freeplay graphics- they are both beautifully designed!)

I’m not going to go into much detail about create a sim now but I will say the amount of options is incredible! You can edit every facial feature with sliders to make them the exact size and shape you want as well as being able to choose from different body shapes or even giving your sims blue or green skin!

At the moment the tutorial is quite confusing so someone who is completely new to The Sims franchise may get lost, there are goals at the top of the screen but they are very basic and I wasn’t sure when the tutorial was over as there wasn’t a pop up to tell me that I had completed it. I mentioned this to the developers so hopefully they will look into making it more player friendly.

There are loads of different aspects to the game that I am going to briefly explain and give my opinions on them, I will go into more detail on these topics at a later date when the game has been released worldwide.

OVERVIEW

This is a fast paced real time game where most actions take 5 seconds to complete which means there is a lot of tapping! In one way I really like this as you can play for a long period of time before you run out of energy (energy, hunger, hygiene and fun are the 4 needs you have in this game, once you run out of a need you will need to refill using an object which takes a few hours so you can take a break) If you decide to speed up the refilling using simcash instead of waiting then the repetitive tapping can become a little boring.

THE HOUSE AND SIMS

Surprisingly there is only one house in this town and you can have 4 playable sims in that house at one time, you can have other sims such as babies and toddlers but you cannot play as these sims until they age and a playable sim has passed on..

Yes your sims will die in this game, if you don’t like this aspect in the sims freeplay I think you will appreciate it more in the sims mobile and it is quite a vital part of the game!

LEGACIES

The main point of this game is legacies and generations so your sims complete life goals and the more life goals they complete the better heirloom they will leave behind for the next generation, heirlooms unlock new items and interactions in the game. This does mean that your sims will age automatically every day and at the moment they live for about 12 days in total

but they will not age if you do not open the game

so if you don’t open the game for 3 weeks then you won’t come back and find all

heirlooms

your sims have died!

The developers did mention that they want players to have an emotional attachment with their sims- which I think is a terrible idea! You can’t really build an emotional attachment in 12 days anyway but why would you want to when they are going to die! We all know from the sims freeplay experience that players don’t like their sims dying once they have become attached to them so I am hoping they will stick to the 12 days! However as it is I think the death aspect works and is needed in this game, as you add new sims in their place and continue where they left off to unlock new items with the heirlooms in buy mode so you can keep upgrading the house and level up to purchase more land expansions.

BUY MODE

I found buy mode awkward to use, you get a side view when trying to place items from buy mode instead of a birds eye view and when you are changing the wallpaper or flooring you have walls in the way so you can’t see what you are doing! Although I really love that you can click and hold an item to move its position as well as change the colour of an item once you have placed it in the house so as you go through the generations you can refresh the objects without buying new ones and the best bit is that you can place different colours on individual walls instead of being required to have the same design in the whole room. If they fix the issues with buy mode this could be such a great feature!

EVENTS

There are loads of events in the game for careers, hobbies, building relationships, earning party points and special events which are all longer events but have 5 second tasks within them, you need to complete the 5 second tasks to fill up the stars, once the stars are full you complete the event and earn event related rewards. The higher the level you are in a career, hobby or friendship the more stars you will need to fill to complete these events. I love the fast pace to these events and that you can go to work as many times as you want or can during a day!

PARTIES

Parties allow you to interact with other players sims, build relationships and even ask their sim to move in if the other player agrees!

Overall I really enjoyed playing The Sims Mobile at EA Play and I cannot wait for the game to be available worldwide! Just to recap I really love the speed of the game and the create a sim options but there are some issues including buy mode as mentioned above but also we really need a camera on the screen and when completing events if you select a 5 second option it zooms right in and then you have to zoom out again when the task is complete to pick the next one which is quite annoying.
