Brilliant Backyard 
is the eighth Live Event in The Sims FreePlay during the Brilliant Backyard Update in October/November 2018. Like the previous live events, it unlocks new items and a brilliant backyard template. It lasts for 9 days.

When the timer for the 9 days ends, there will be a 2 day period afterwards to purchase any of the remaining prizes. You will not be able to collect anymore arts and crafts resources or constructor coins. Once the timer for that period ends, the resources will convert into Simoleons.

Available: Between 15th/16th October - November 2018

Tutorial

The tutorial is the same for all Live/Community Events.

  • Place a craft station
  • Craft candles (tap on the candle station -- make 50 candles for 23 seconds)
  • Restock a station (tap on a station; you can either use 10 SPs for 18 uses or stock 2 uses for 10 seconds)
  • Buy the first prize (tap on the planter button in the corner, scroll down and tap 'Purchase')
  • Use the spin flower (buy coin patch from Event Items tab in buy mode, tap on it and spin)
  • Check daily goals (tap on the button and tap on the first tab with a tick)
  • Collect bonuses (wait a few minutes and a candle will float above your Sims' head; tap on it)
  • Continue collecting items

Note: the goal for restocking lasts 10 seconds. When a station requires restocking during the event, it will take 2 hours 30 minutes.

Coin flower patch

The coin flower patch (shown right) is used to earn Constructor Coins. Constructor coins (CC for short) are the fifth required resource alongside the craft resources to progress along the bar and earn the prizes. During the tutorial (shown above) the first spin from the patch is free; after that you can either spend 450 candles or 25 SPs to earn constructor coins. Each Live/Community Event has the same garden patch, except it changes colour and uses a different resource (for example, in the Prince and the Pocket Sized Princess event, the patch was purple and required 450 daisies to use). 

Craft stations

There are four different craft stations, each with different amounts but the same times. You use these to progress through the Personal Progress bar to unlock and purchase prizes.
