Tropical Romance Island is the first Community Event in The Sims FreePlay during the Romance Update in February 2016 and for a second time in the French Romance Update. The event unlocks new items and areas on an island. It lasts for 14 days.  

When the timer for the 14 days ends, there will be a 7 day period afterwards to purchase any of the remaining prizes. You will not be able to collect anymore fruit resources or constructor coins. Once the timer for that period ends, the resources will convert into Simoleons.  

Available: 2nd - 15th February 2016 and 26th February - 11th March 2017.

Coin flower patch

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 bananas 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).
