New Live Event: School’s Out
The Sims FreePlay has hosted live crafting events for many years now.
FreePlayers are well-versed in the four iconic workstations that make up these live events: pottery, candle making, jewelry, and glass-blowing. Player Sims work at these stations during live events to craft gargantuan amounts of materials, all of which can be exchanged for a myriad of prizes.
The newest FreePlay live event, arriving in game on September 3rd, 2020, will encourage FreePlayers to join the crafting race to earn school-themed prizes. Some of these prizes include: crisp, brightly-colored signs, wooden student desks, inconspicuous wall clocks, podiums, and much more.
The event guides the player through different levels of prizes. The player can claim the prizes by exchanging given numbers of candles, glassware, jewelry, pottery, and constructor coins.
Simmers who are able to earn all prize packs will enjoy the grand prize: a school campus, fully furnished. Of course, it is not expected for most Simmers to complete this task on their first go. Like other live events, this event will return, saving player progress until the player wins the final prize.
Which prize are you looking forward to most? Tell us in the comments!
Stay safe, love your loved ones, and as always, happy Simming!

L-Shaped Rooms Feature Quest
In the world of mobile Simming, Sims FreePlay has reigned king concerning build mode for a long time and for good reason.
Sims FreePlay, modeled after the beloved PC Sims iterations Sims 1 and 2, boasts a robust build/buy system, an endless variety of furniture, and a myriad of essential build features such as balconies, porches, swimming pools, mezzanines, and much more.
But even the king has space for improvement, and the week of August 10th, 2020, Sims FreePlay will undergo a much requested change: the addition of room shapes. Until now, FreePlayers were fairly limited to rectangular rooms, though this limitation did not hamper the most creative from building stunning palaces and charming bungalows.
After the August 10th update, Simmers will see a prompt about this newest feature in their games. To embark on the L-shaped room quest, the player will have to fork out social points or simoleons. The amount will vary. A player capped at level 55, the highest in FreePlay, will need to cough up over 7,000,000 simoleons.
After purchasing the quest, the player will begin a quick series of events that guides them through building an L-shaped room. Each action takes seconds to complete, a refreshing change from the FreePlay usual.
When ready for an L-shaped room, the player must first build a standard square or rectangular room first. A new widget will allow the player to tug and resize the room into the desired L-shaped dimensions.
Players can only create L-shapes for now. They are unable to build z-shaped, u-shaped, or o-shaped rooms, but such rooms must certainly be on the horizon!
What will you build with your new L-shape ability?
Tell us in the comments and, as always, happy Simming!

Clutter is Key
The most discerning of Sim builders and interior designers know that there is a fairly simple trick to make a room look warm and inviting: clutter.
What is clutter? Clutter is a subset of Sim decor which often serves no purpose but to take up space. However, it is in these varied odds and ends that designers give their living spaces life.
Consider Farhana Norhisham’s cafe! By adding items such as prepared meals, wooden trays, utensils, a rack of clean dishes, a stack of pies, and decorative flowers, Hana makes her space appear /lived-in./ You can imagine her Sims bustling around her shop drying dishes, sleepily brewing coffee, or grabbing a cold pressed drink on a warm day.
🏡 Fill the wall space with shelves
🏡 Experiment with large, medium, and small table decor.
🏡Add a pop of life and color with houseplants
🏡Note that not all decor is created equal: the salt and pepper shakers take up far less counter space than a pot of flowers, so you may find unexpected places to fit small clutter.
🏡Make use of kitchen hatches: enclosed shelves that house dishes
🏡Note that /modern/ builds do not need to appear “homey,” and therefore do not need clutter.
