[LIVE EVENT] French Romance Live Event

Post by mockingbird288z » 30 Jan 2017, 21:46

The French Romance event lasts for 12 days.

Like the Halloween and Easter events the timer starts as soon as you update. For now you can delay updating and still get the full 12 days. The actual end date isn't known yet but if you update less than 12 days of the actual end date of this event you won't have the full 12 days.

While there isn't a community component to this event it still works the same way. We have to collect resources to unlock things. The stations we will use are Candle, Pottery, Jewelry, and Glassware.

People are getting different requirements! These requirements may not be yours!

Requirements

(From annarose):
Candles: 16,830
Pottery: 82,724
Jewelry: 76,140
Glassware: 76,500
C Coins: 1,385

OR

(From ErinPW):
Candles 18,700
Pottery 91,915
Jewelery 84.600
Glassware 85,000
Constructor Coins 1,535

OR

Candles: 20,570 (not including 50 for the mood lighting)
Pottery: 101,107
Jewelry: 93,060
Glassware: 93,500
Constructo Coins: 1,692

(Using the highest known requirements)
Assuming we can do the collecting action 7 times a day (17.5 hours) and have the max amount of stations allowed It will take:

2.9 days for candles (will need more for the CCs)
9.6 days for pottery
7.8 days for jewelry
10.7 days for glassware

Collecting bonuses will help as will doing longer actions while you are away from the game. When you can monitor the game often then 2.5 hour action is the most efficient.


Restocking
7 actions are stocked when you purchase a station from the home store.

After those 7 are used it takes 2.5 hours to restock it for 9 uses or 10 SPs to restock for 18 uses. If you are using SP it is better to pay the 10 to get 18 uses as speeding up the 2.5 hour takes 9 SPs.

Placing a station into your inventory will take away any stocked uses left in that station. If you want to move a station to another lot it is best to do it when it has 0 stocked uses left.

If you cancel the craft making action, you'll still lose one use of the station.

Further recharges take 2 and a half hours and are for 9 uses.

I wondered what they would offer to sell us to assist in the event, like the gem and flower harvesters. I see it is a person, Sarah Craft!?! :o

So it's a sim helper, not an object like before? Rather pointless for me if the sim disappears after the event. I would have preferred an object to keep as decor at the very least.

I agree with you playsims...why pay for a "temp" item in the online store? I do not understand that concept unless something great becomes of Laura Craft following the event as part the residing sims town.
