The Sims Freeplay- 15 Ways To Make Money and LPs!

I always get asked “how do I make money and LPs quickly?” so I have come up with a list of the main ways you can make money and LPs!

  1. Buy them– you could always buy them if you are struggling, if you were to buy one of them I would go for LPs over simoleons as LPs are harder to make!
  2. Level up– when you level up you get LPs. You can level up quicker by reaching relationship milestones that give you 100+XPs and by completing rows in hobby collections
  3. Complete goals– each goal you complete gives you a reward, whether it’s money, LPs or XPs and when you complete a selection of the weekly goals you receive more money and LPs.
  4. Increase town value– you receive LPs when you reach certain values!
  5. Garden and bake– if all of your sims are gardening you can earn loads of simoleons. If you are busy put your sims on gardening and baking tasks for that length of time, e.g. While you are sleeping make all your sims plant beans for 9 hours. Or if you have a spare hour or so you could set up a plant growing plot for lots of your sims as shown below and grow some carrots or corn over and over to make even more money! Remember if sims are inspired they earn more money!

    Thanks Nige for the picture!

    Thanks again Nige!

  6. Pets finding treasure– the more expensive the pet the more likely they will find LPs but they mostly find simoleons
  7. Go to work– the more they go to work the more money they will make as they get promoted
  8. Party boat– the more neighbours you have the more prizes you get, you mostly get simoleons from this but it is possible to get LPs
  9. Competition center– this will give you a certain hobby and you enter a sim who has the highest level in that hobby for 24 hours and it will give you a position and a reward, if you are first you will get 3 LPs! You still get a reward wherever you are placed in the competition.
  10. Bingo hall– you can enter your seniors in this for a day, I have never won at bingo yet though!
  11. Hobbies– you get simoleons for finding a new piece and once you’ve completed the collections to collect the main prizes, complete it again for an LP reward! The cooking hobby is my favourite because you can make lots of money and LPs relatively quickly with several of your sims working on it at once! How Do I Have So Many LPs explains this in more detail.
  12. Collect revenue from car drives– if you buy the 1 story mansion you get a free car with it, you can use that to drive about town, click on the music notes and collect the money- the more expensive the car the more likely you will find LPs
  13. Daily reward– the mailbox gives you simoleons every 24 hours, the amount is based on your town value, the higher your value the more money you get but there is a limit on this
  14. Money from houses (house revenue)- click on the money and XPs signs on the town map for simoleons
  15. Free Simoleons/ LPs/ SPs from the paperboy- a paperboy appears in your town with a film reel in a bubble above his head, click on this to watch an advert, once you have watched it you will earn either furniture, simoleons, LPs or SPs! 

Don’t cheat! Using the time cheat is more trouble than it is worth, if you use it other things will go wrong with your game, for example:

  • Buildings take longer to build
  • Daily rewards don’t arrive
  • Babies take longer to arrive

It is possible to get lots of money and LPs without cheating, you just have to work hard.

 

Need Social Points? Watch this video: 

This method still works but they have unhelpfully made the social point flower cost 20LPs now instead of 5 so a bit more cooking is needed!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT THIS QUEST

please read before asking

I have missed this quest! Why can’t I start it yet?
You cannot miss main quests they have to be completed in order. You need to complete all previous quests (list can be found here) and reach level 12 before you can start this quest

Can I complete this quest even though I am passed level 12?
Yes, you just need to complete all previous quests then this quest will start automatically

Why are there two versions of this quest?
Some quests have two versions, as when the makers have updated the times for quests they haven’t updated them on all devices so some players still get the old times.

I have watched a documentary but it hasn’t completed the goal, why?
You will not be able to complete this goal until you get the goal when the quest starts

Why do blue footprints appear when I try to use an item?
Blue footprints appear when your sim cannot access an item you want them to use, you need to either rotate the item or move an item that has been placed in front of it so they can use it

What do I get if I complete this quest in the time limit?
The dress up chest

What happens if I don’t complete in the time limit, can I still finish this quest?

I didn’t complete in the time limit, can I restart the quest?
No, you cannot redo quests

No, the only way to get the limited time prizes is by completing the quest in the time limit

I don’t like this quest! Can I just skip it?
No, you have to complete this quest before you can move onto the next one

Some times are slightly different on my game, why is this?

Times may vary depending on the star rating of the item you are using, as the higher star rating an item has the quicker you will complete a goal

Some times are really off/ different goals show for me, why is this?

This will be because the quest has been updated recently, I try my best to keep these posts up to date but it is difficult as I cannot redo every quest each time the game is updated. If you notice any changes please let me know so I can update the post


Watch my step by step video of version 2 of this quest here:

The Sims Freeplay- Hobbies: Bird Feeding

20140216-163459.jpgThis post will tell you all you need to know about the bird feeding hobby.

Who can feed birds?

Only senior sims can do this hobby
How can you be a bird feeder?

You need to first complete the bird feeding quest which can be found here:

thegirlwhogames.wordpress.com/2014/02/05/the-sims-freeplay-bird-feeding-quest/
Where can you feed birds?

  1. Park
  2. Swim center
  3. Community center
  4. Snow park

The first time you do this hobby you need to unlock the next place by finding all 3 birds from the previous place.

What are the bird feeding options?

  • At the park: feed birds- 10 minutes
  • At the swim center: feed birds- 1 hour
  • At the community center: feed birds- 6 hours
  • At the snow park: feed birds- 12 hours

What are the bird feeding levels?

  1. Egg
  2. Fledgling
  3. Pecking Orderer
  4. Skilled
  5. Eggspert
  6. Flockstar

How do I bird feed?

You need to find the bench in the middle of the park that has pigeons on it and click the option to feed birds, once you have found all the park birds you unlock the swim center bench and so on.
What birds are there to collect?

 


Park Birds

  • Rock Dove
  • Dove
  • Rainbow Lorikeet

Swim Center Birds

  • Blue and Yellow Macaw
  • Scarlett Macaw
  • Eastern Rosella

Community Center Birds

  • Crimson Rosella

The first time you complete this set you unlock the parrot in a cage- they will cost you 10LPs. The second time you unlock the park bench for your homes which costs 2Lps and can be found in promotions r us!
Further times you complete the collection you get 3LPs.
I can’t find a bird what do I do?

You just need to keep going until you get it, there are no cheats or tricks, it’s completely random.
Is it worth using the lucky spin?

I would say no, it doesn’t give you the one you are missing it just gives you one at random so you will probably just waste LPs
How do I start the collection again?

Once you have finished the collection you can click start collection again at the bottom of the list.
