You may be experiencing an issue where it is difficult to progress in the French Romance Live Event in the Sims FreePlay. You may be missing the constructor coin spin plant. More specifically, if you require an item but that your active task list is requiring you use, but you cannot find it in your home store:
Please try to restock the candle workstation in your active task list. To do this, first ensure that it is out of stock by performing candle-making actions on a station. You will then get the task "Use a Coin Flower" patch and the flower patch with a blue border will be available in the "Events" tab of the home-store.
