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 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?
Yes you have to finish it to unlock the ability to age your babies to toddlers before you can move onto the next quest

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

Can I still get the prize if I don’t complete in the time limit?
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

BIRD FEEDING QUEST – BIRD FEEDING BENCH – SENIOR SIMS ONLY – PRIZES: CAGED BIRD, BENCH AND 3LPs

Seniors can bird feed once you complete the Bird Feeding Quest. Once you have you will be able to find the first bench in the park, you need to find all 3 birds on the first bench to unlock the next bench

Once at the park find the bench with the birds on it and select ‘feed birds’ for 10 minutes

You will need to find 3 different birds at the park to unlock the swim center bench to find the next 3 birds. Once you have found all 3 birds at the swim center you will unlock the bench at the community center to find the next 3 birds. Once you have found those 3 new birds you will unlock the final bench at the snow park to find the last 3 birds:

  • 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

Once you complete the collection for the first time you can use the benches in any order but you will still need to do each option to find the different birds to complete each row

  • Rainbow Lorikeet
Blue and Yellow MacawScarlett Macaw and Eastern Rosella

You can now complete the collection!

 

After the time has passed come back and click the exclamation mark above your sims head to find one of the bird collectibles in that row. You still level up in this hobby but the hobby level up percentage isn’t important as the bird collectibles don’t unlock depending on your level, when you finish a row of bird collectibles you will unlock the ability to find the birds in the next row.

The table below shows you the level up reward that your sims will receive when they level up in this hobby:

 LEVEL  TITLE 1st TIME LEVEL UP REWARD

5 Eggspert 10,000 Town Value
6 Flock Star 1LP

 

You won’t find a new collectible each time, you will get repeats, if this happens just keep going, you will find them eventually! If it is still taking too long you can use the lucky spin on the row where you cannot find the item, this will cost LPs, when you click on the LP button it will clear the row and give you a random collectible on that row so you aren’t guaranteed a new item (you will get back any other collectibles you already had in that row) Need to earn some LPs to use the lucky spin?

 

The completed bird feeding collection is shown below, once you complete the collection you need to click ‘start a new collection’ at the top of the hobby collection screen, this clears the board so you can complete the collection again to earn more rewards (you will only get the option to restart the hobby collection when you have completed the collection):

 

The first time you complete a row you will unlock a new place to bird feed, further times you will earn XPs when you complete a row in the hobby but to complete the collection you need to find all 12 of the collectibles

The rewards for completing this collection are a caged bird, bird feeding bench and 3LPs:

  • The first time you complete this collection you unlock a caged bird (they can be found in the pet section of the home store and cost 10LPs)
  • The second time you unlock the bird feeding bench for your homes, this bench has all 4 bird feeding options on it so you don’t need to go to all of the places anymore (it costs 2Lps and can be found in promotions r us store)
  • From the third time onwards each time you complete the collection you will earn 3LPs

The Sims Freeplay- Hobbies: Ghost Hunting

GHOST HUNTERS QUEST – HAUNTED ITEMS – ADULT SIMS ONLY – PRIZES: GHOST TANK AND 5LPs

 

 Adult sims will be able to complete this hobby once you have completed the Ghost Hunters Quest. Once you have, you will need to buy haunted objects from the home store and place them in a sims house.

NOTE: Once you place the ghost hunting items in your house the lights will flash every so often which can be an issue for some players so please bare that in mind.

 

What are haunted items?
These are items in the home store which have a red ghost symbol on them:

img_7640

You can buy as many as you want so you can have as many adult sims as you want completing this hobby at once

Once placed tap on the item and select the option ‘Search for Ghosts’  the time varies slightly depending on the star rating the item you brought has:

  • 1 Star haunted objects- 3 mins 30 seconds
  • 2 star haunted objects- 3 minutes 9 seconds
  • 3 star haunted objects- 2 minutes 48 seconds

After the time has passed come back and click the exclamation mark above your sims head, a ghost will then appear, you need to then tap the ghost three times before it escapes to find one of the ghost collectibles. If the ghost escapes you will not get a ghost collectible.

Haunted items need recharging after you use them so you have to wait before using them to search again (you can get around this by getting as many haunted items as possible in your house or building the Haunted House if you completed the Ghost Hunter Quest in the time limit!)

Time for recharging varies depending on the star rating the haunted object has:

  • 3 star- 10 minutes
  • 2 star- 20 minutes
  • 1 star- 30 minutes

Every time you search for ghosts your ghost hunting hobby skill level up percentage will increase, once you reach 100% you will level up, there are 8 levels. You need to reach level 8 to be able to unlock all of the ghost collectibles, once unlocked you will be able to find them.

The table below shows the level up percentage:

This may change in future updates

 LEVEL  Search for Ghosts
1-2 50%
2-3 20%
3-4 10%
4-5 6%
5-6 2%
6-7 2%
7-8 2%

For example you will need to search for ghosts twice to reach level 2

The next table shows you for each level what ghost collectibles you unlock (so you can then find those ones too) and also the level up reward that a second and future sims will receive when they level up in this hobby:

 LEVEL  TITLE 1st TIME LEVEL UP UNLOCKS 2nd+ TIMES LEVEL UP REWARD
1 Crackpot Pimpernickel Scaresalot, Mr Flapsworth and Nanny Frightsmith are unlocked in the hobby collection
2 Doomsday Sayer Chewy Chewfinger is now unlocked in the hobby collection 250XP
3 Spook Seeker  Warts Cauldron and Gruesome Gretchen are now unlocked in the hobby collection 500XP
4 Ghost Aficionado Cousin Flapsworth and Huffenstuf are now unlocked in the hobby collection S750
5 Paranormal Investigator Cackles and Hugo Argh are now unlocked in the hobby collection 10,000 Town Value
6 Peter Venksim Flapsworth Jnr, Hoodoo and Horrible Helga are now unlocked in the hobby collection 1LP
7 Ghoul Whisperer Ghoulio, Hack o Lantern and Beetlegeist are now unlocked in the hobby collection 1LP
8 Master Ghostologist Fright in Shining Armour and Lord of Flapsworth Manor are now unlocked in the hobby collection

You can now complete the collection!

1LP

NOTE: only the first sim completing this hobby needs to get to level 8 to unlock all the collectibles, future sims will be able to find any collectible even if they are only on level 1 in this hobby!

You won’t find a new collectible each time, you will get repeats, if this happens just keep going, you will find them eventually! If it is still taking too long you can use the lucky spin on the row where you cannot find the item, this will cost LPs, when you click on the LP button it will clear the row and give you a random collectible on that row so you aren’t guaranteed a new item (you will get back any other collectibles you already had in that row) Need to earn some LPs to use the lucky spin?

 

The completed ghost hunting collection is shown below, once you complete the collection you need to click ‘start a new collection/ hunt again’ at the top of the hobby collection screen, this clears the board so you can complete the collection again to earn more rewards (you will only get the option to restart the hobby collection when you have completed the collection):

The first time you complete this collection you will unlock an item for each row, further times you complete this collection you will earn XPs when you complete a row in the hobby but to complete the collection you need to find all 18 of the collectibles

 

  • The rewards for completing each row are:

First row: Spooky Stairs (stairs section- S40,000)

Second row: Frightening Flooring (floors section- S160 each)

Third row: Halloween Table (dining room section- S900)

Fourth row: Wicked Wallpaper (walls section- S15 each)

Fifth row: Haunted Elevator (stairs section- S250,000)

Sixth row: Teen Roman Costumes (free in wardrobe under outfits for teens)

  • You will also unlock the ghost containment tank when you complete the whole collection for the first time (which can be found in the decorations section and costs S8,000)

  • From the second time onwards each time you complete the collection you will earn 5LPs
