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 the bread winner quest and reach level 7 before you can start this quest

Can I complete this quest even though I have passed level 7?
Yes, you just need to complete all previous quests then this quest will start automatically

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

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

  1. I am at lvl 10, completed the steps you listed above & still don’t have the sprout show up in my gardening list.

    Any suggestions?

  2. How do you make a hot snack out of watermelon?…cause every time i click on hot snack option or the snack options it wouldn’t work….and its getting annoying u see…anyone plse help me.. 🙂

    • Why is everyone trying to make a hot snack out of the watermelon?
      Grow watermelons and have a hot snack in the microwave are two different tasks
      Just buy a microwave make sure they can access the front of it (blue footprints will appear if they can’t) and select the option to have a hot snack.

  3. Ok I’ve grown the watermelons and I need to make hot snack with microwave but I Dnt have one and there aren’t any in the kitchen section I store does anyone no y I’m lvl 9

  4. I have the same quest but one of the things i have to do is Negotiate with a sim eating plant. Any ideas what i should do?

    • Are you sure you are doing that quest? There is another one with this goal in it. But you have to grow lettuce and get the sim eating plant on the spinning mini game sort of thing once you get that you can click on it and negotiate with it

      • That i believe is the easiest task i have ever imagined and the love is in the air is the hardest task i have ever imagined i mean by longest. phew I’m finally at the step of “2 & half Sims”

  5. OH MY GOD THANKS I DIDNT KNOW HOW UNTILL NOW AHHH question: once you have completed this quest is the next quest 2 sims and a halve?

  6. In this quest, while a person watches the documentary can you use another sim to grow the plants in advance?

      • I have the same problem. I’m done with the watermelons and now I’m trying to make a hot snack using microwave but it does not have hot snack option. and the goal in the quest is make a hot snack using microwave. I really appreciate ur help! Thx

      • Yeah the makers have made a bit of a mistake on this, they have removed all options from a microwave apart from cooking and seem to have forget about the goal in this quest, I will let them know about this and hopefully they will add it back or change the goal

  7. When i try to make a hot snack with the microwave, all see is a “cooking” option. When I tap it, the pop up says “Cooking is a little too hot for your sims to handle! Complete the ‘Bread Winner’ Quest available at level 7 to unlock the ‘Cooking; hobby and become a savior of flavor!”
    I am on level 13. what should I do?

    • Yeah the makers have made a bit of a mistake on this, they have removed all options from a microwave apart from cooking and seem to have forget about the goal in this quest, I will let them know about this and hopefully they will add it back or change the goal

  8. That goal is still in the quest. However I’m level 25 and have to make a hot snack in the microwave. Yet, it doesn’t matter which microwave I choose I can’t make a hot snack. The option doesn’t appear. Only cooking which I can’t do yet because I need to complete this quest to unlock the bread winner quest. Can anyone helpt?

  9. I have a microwave and I am on level 15 but each time I try to cook something in my microwave all the options are unavailable and say some something about stars 1 and stuff????

  10. (Money grows on trees quest) I have completed the quest & am able to plant Simoleons sprouts, but the LP lotus has disappeared from the garden patch. Is there a way I can get it back or is it gone forever? Thanks for any help.

  11. Hi I grow watermelons but I can’t find the ‘hot snack’ option on microwave also how do I carry the watermelon to the microwave? I tried the coffee machine as well but I can’t find the ‘coffee melon’ option. Please help. 🙂

  12. Can I start watching the documentary before I get the quest and can I watch it before I get the task to watch a documentary.
    Thanks

    P.S.
    Sorry if my English is not that good, English is not my first language

  13. I just restarted my game as I missed out on the elevators and escalators pack, and I didn’t get the hot snack in microwave task this time round, it just went straight to the simoleon sprout.

    PS. I have never commented before but have used your blog for ages to get ahead on quests by starting tasks early. Love it, thank you, you are great!

    X

  14. Only difference I noticed yes. I have to be careful not to accidentally grow the simoleon sprout now! I am saving up simoleons before I start the quests that have time limits!

  15. I got to the simulation sprout it frozen just on the roulette and deleted the game and played again it yet again was frozen with the simulation sprout. Not sure what’s going on?

  16. What should i do? Whenever i tap microwave, cooking option is the only option that i see. And when i tap cooking, it says that, “cooking is a little too hot for your sims to handle just yet! Complete the bread winner quest available at level 7 to unlock the cooking’ hobby and become a savior of flavor” so, i’ll skip this money grows on tree quest? And do the bread winner quest? Huhu what should i do?

  17. I completed the watermelon growing but can’t find the Simoleon Sprout. It didn’t appear Shawn I clicked in the garden plot after I collected my watermelon

  18. i’m in level 39 and i want to complete this quest but i don’t get the option “hot snack” and it doesnt tell me what should i do

  19. Money on trees is the 2nd quest, yet says I have bread winner queued. I don’t understand this. It won’t allow me to do the money quest bc of the bread tasks being queued. Plz help. I deleted my 1st game bc of this problem, started over and it’s doing it again

    • Are you on the money grows on trees quest?
      A quest in the queue just means that it is waiting until you have completed previous quests (so money grows on trees) before you can do the ones that are in your queue.

  20. I did EVERYTHING that I was supposed to do. I attempted EVERYTHING twice and I still do not see the option to grow the Sim plant.!!!

  21. Just reset my game to do everything again with what I know. (I was level 34 and not happy with my town) The “money grows on trees” now starts with grow carrots 5 minutes. Then watch documenty 54 mins.

  22. This gave me the exact information and more.This website is the best and I highly recommend it to everybody.Tanks for being the awesomest website ever
