9 Days Left – Day 2

Completed the mini tutorial which allowed me to purchase prize#1: Pretty Planters.

Next, I had 4 Sims restock the candle station – 2hrs 30m. My suggestion is that you drag the initial candle station to the inventory and restock it along with the others. Otherwise, you will only have 2 stocks instead of the default 9.

Every 15m or so I’ve been collecting bonuses. 

Session 1: (1,428) Candles and Milestone #1 & 2 obtained.

Daily Goals met
Craft 1,000 items – 5 Constructor Coins
Craft any item – 1CC
Use a spin plant – 1CC
(Here I got lucky and got 8CC in 1 Spin!)
Unlock or buy a prize – 5CC

Today’s goals are to complete all the daily goals and purchase prize# 2! (Complete)

Session 2: (1,000) Candles

I was able to purchase prize #3. I skipped prize #2 for now.

Session 2: (1,000) Candles

I was able to purchase prize #3. I skipped prize #2 for now.

Unlocked the pottery station so I set 4 Sims to restock the stations.

Session 3: (1,000) Candles

I used the Spin plant x2 and got 1 CC each time lol… ? ? 

I purchased prize #2 which means my goals for today surpassed expectations.

I ended the night restocking the candle stations while 4 Sims worked on the restocked pottery station.

Until now, I’ve never gotten to use 9 stocks. 7 if ambitious but never 9.

Goals reset.
I’m going to purchase the most expensive prize so that if I have to grind for materials, it won’t be overload.
I went ahead and purchased brilliant bar. 2 prizes left!
7,000 candles accrued. Time for Spin plant!

One lucky draw of 20 Constructor coins!
Not a super impressive draw!
I got about 72 Constructor coins but I was able to complete all the daily goals which granted me 20 Constructor Coins so 92 Constructor coins is not that bad of a deal!

Let see… for the last two prizes in total, I would need 270 Constructor coins and I have 144/270. I just need 126 Constructor coins and I can stop crafting candles.

For the rest of the prizes, this are the crafting requirements.
Outdoor Kitchen Cabinets

35hrs Left – Day 10

252/270 Constructor Coins 

Session 1: 1,000(ca.) 1,500(po.) 1,695(jw.) 1,240 (gl.)

Session 2: 1,000(ca.) 1,500(po.) 1,695(jw.) 1,240 (gl.)

Losing out on an entire day has cost me and I may not be able to claim all the prizes. I’m close to claiming one of the prizes, however!

17 Constructor coins won on a lucky spin has brought me to 270/270 Constructor Coins (which means I can stop crafting candles!)

I moved all the craft stations together to be able to easily collect bonuses and had the 4 (now free) Sims work on a task for the Night of the Candy Monsters.

I was able to purchase Outdoor Kitchen Cabinets which allowed me to complete the daily goals but I’m actually low on pottery and glass.. lol

One more session of Jewelry and I have enough sources to free those Sims. 

New tip:  Try to have the most important sources together easy collection (Ex: Pottery, Glass, Jewelry)  and you can separate candles on another house.

With the day coming to an end, I set all Sims to restock the stations so I can be better prepared next time.
