Workshop Wonder Events

‘Illustrious Industrial’ Live Event

A timeless loft needs an illustrious, industrial style! Craft resources in this 13-day event to unlock a range of repurposed and recycled wares. From converted benchtops and knife racks, to coffee machines and trestle dining sets, these factory furnishes will breathe new life into your Sim’s home.

The large Grand Prize house template is an industrial studio exuding a modern chic style. It comes with a beautiful cooktop island that includes an all-new action for Toddler Sims, ‘Drum Pots’n’Pans’! Ah, it’s so noisy – but so cute!

Our EA Creator, The Girl Who Games, can guide you on how to play Live Events here.

SimChase Season 63: ‘Garage Grapple’

Get those hands dirty with classic, 1950s inspired garage items, including wall-mounted motorcycles, fuel pumps, garage doors, workbenches, and so much more! Your Sims will turn heads driving around SimTown in antique automobiles – plus, lift up the hood and use a new action, ‘Get Greasy Hands’, to tinker with the engine!
