Yes, you just need to complete all previous quests then this quest will start automatically

Why are there two versions of this quest?

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

    Thank you once again.

  12. Hi, I do enjoy your posts. It helps me schedule my game and live my life! I am starting again and wanted to let you know there’s some changes to this quest.
    Time limit is less than two days, I think. It took 12& 1/2 hours to build the swim center, now I’m staring at pool slide for 10& 1/2 hours. If they left getting advice for one day, I’m sunk. Looking at diving board apprehensively was cut to one minute and first time asking Wupples for advice is 6 minutes, 24 seconds. I don’t know about the rest.
    I do differ on the value of a couple properties, though. Vacant lot isn’t worth it, I believe. The sanctuary is better because of all the trees. Also, cedar siding is nice. Connect the rooms together and it makes a real nice house. I added a second story to my old town and it makes for an impressive home. The beach house has nice furniture in the main house and can be remodeled as needed. Plus that luxury car is worth it. I noticed the car doesn’t make LPs like it did a year ago.
    Well, that’s my two cents worth. Thank you for all you do. I hope EA compensates you for it! 😁
    BTW how do I add new neighbors? I just have my old town and the one they give you. I can’t figure how to add people from your list. Or maybe you could add me to your list? Please? Thanks! ☺

    • I’m glad you enjoy them!
      Thank you very much, I have updated the post 🙂
      If you are playing on an android you have to add neighbours as friends on facebook to get them to show on your party boat, if you are playing on an apple product you can also add neighbours on game center, which is an app on your device, on there you can find your username: https://thegirlwhogames.wordpress.com/2014/09/23/the-sims-freeplay-adding-neighbours/
      But I can add you to the list if you would like, if you are adding by facebook it will be your link to your profile or your name, if you are adding on game center it will be your username you can find on the app 🙂

  13. I have a query. You mentioned that I could still get a volleyball net in the teen mansion (after unlocking it). So if I don’t complete the quest in time, but as long as I unlock the teen mansion, am I able to place the volleyball net (from the teen mansion) in my other houses?

  14. I put some of the furniture from the new house that I bought into my inventory, then after when i went into the inventory all the stuff was completely gone!

    • You aren’t the only one who has had this problem, it appears to be a glitch, I think you should contact EA to see if they can fix this for you as I am unable to fix technical issues, sorry!

  15. Thank you for this helpful website you made.One question!How many people you mast have it to build the Swimming Center?

  16. Hey so I wasn’t able to comment on the post of house templates so I’m asking from here, sorry. Would you recommend buying the renovators dream home or buying an empty plot to make it myself? Which is cheaper? Also, if I want to built most of the available homes, would it be cheaper to buy them from cheapest to most expensive or the other way around? Your blog is super helpful 🙂

    • Personally I would just but an empty plot because I like designing my own houses but the renovators dream is good if you just want to decorate instead of design yourself and it probably would be cheaper even though SPs but all the rooms and pool are already there.
      Remember that for all the simoleon priced houses the price will go up each time you build a house so I would recommend building your favourite ones of those first as they will be cheaper, the LPs and SPs houses prices don’t change so it doesn’t matter when you build them
      Thanks 🙂 I’m glad it helps!

  17. I used to have this game, and somehow lost all my progress. Every quest I did was version one, but now they are all version two. Do you know why that would be?

    • This is because they have updated the game on your device to be the latest version which is version 2, some devices still have the old version as the changes haven’t been rolled out across all devices yet.

  18. Is there a way for the sims to put on swimsuits for the it’s all going swimmingly quest or at all.

  19. Is there any way that you can delete comments? I commented a while ago about needing a neighbor with a swim center and now I receive daily Game Center friend requests and it’s getting really obnoxious.

  20. Hey there, just wanted to say that your blog is really god sent! By the way, I was wondering if anyone else has the same problem I’m facing now. I’d previously completed this quest (last year) and bought a piece of swimwear which is still in my wardrobe. I would now like to buy different ones but can’t seem to find any other swimwear in the store. Any idea why? Is this due to the recent update?

  21. Yes, I have. Isn’t it the one next to the pet store? Previously I could see other costumes as well but now they’re missing. The swimwear tab is also gone 😦

  22. Oh dear! How silly of me! And all along I thought that was the costume and swim store cos I’d been changing my sims’ outfits there. Thank you!

  23. Hi I built a pool in a sims yard did all of the stuff needed. Added a Dolphin toy and have tried to ride it to complete that part. I can ride it but it doesn’t give me the completed task. Is there something I’m not doing right. It says ride into the sunset, so do I need to ride at sunset? If so what time zone do I use? I live on the west coast. I’ve tried other tasks that say do something at midnight and they don’t work either. It must be EST? Thank you for taking the time to read this. I hope to hear from you very soon. PST – LOL
    HAVE A WONDERFUL DAY – LaVonne

    • Firstly the time zone is your time zone but the time of the day you do this goal is not important for this. The task isn’t working because there is a glitch where the game isn’t recognising the goal as being complete. There isn’t much you can do really, you could contact EA to let them know that there is a glitch with this goal so they can fix it for you and others or you could skip the goal with 10LPs
      Sorry I couldn’t be more help!

  24. How can you earn enough money apart from buying packages?

  26. Can I build the swimming center before starting this quest? Btw, thank you very much for this! It’s been a great help. 🙂

  27. Hi,I have completed this quest so I have a garden pool. Recently it is always green and my sims won’t swim in it. I have been cleaning it but it just stays green. It’s very annoying as I spent a lot of simoleons on it and now I can’t use it. Is there something else that I need to do to make it blue again? Love your blog by the way😀😀😀

    • Try having several sims clean it at once, this usually helps
      Thanks!

      • Thank you sooooo much… It worked😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃

  28. Can I not take this quest immediately after the ‘Quest for Toddlers’? I still have to save up for the swimming center =(

  29. I completed the quest on time, built a pool in one of the houses and placed the volley net, but cannot have two sims play even if they are both in the pool on opposite sides of the net. I get a message which says a sim must first invite the second sim for a swim, but I dont get this option when clicking on them. Is the pool too little, maybe? Does a game require a minimum size? Thanks in advance for your help!

    • I am not sure what the problem is, sorry! It may be that your pool is too small but I don’t know for sure. Do you have steps to the pool? Are both sims in the pool?

      • Hello, thanks for your reply. My pool is 6 squares length x 4 squares width, there are two steps on the short sides. Since the volley net is 4 squares long, I had to place on the longer side, so that there is one single row of space on one side of it, two rows on the opposite side.
        I am afraid this size is too little. The only way I found to have my sims playing volley is, have one sim on each side of the volley net, click on one of them to sttart the game, then I receive a message like “Not so fast tiger! you must invite another sim to join the game first”, then I click on the second sim for “partecipating”, and the game starts,
        Is this okay, or it’s since the pool is too little?

      • Maybe you need two rows on either to be able to have a game? I would only be guessing but I can’t think of another reason why it wouldn’t work, sorry!

  30. I can’t afford the swim center. How can I get in app purchases?

  31. Were are the swim suits I can’t find them in the wordrob can you pleas help me find them your blogs are very good thanks

  32. Can younger aged sims (preteens, teens) swim? Do they have swim clothes of their own. No need to answer this. It’s not important, but if u want to…

  33. I am doing the quest, and I don’t have a pool, will I get a pool when the quest is complete?

  34. Hi is it preteens and above to go in pools? I can’t remember

    • A toddler can go into a pool but you need a teenage sim or above in the pool and then select the option on them using the toddler to play in the pool, they just bounce them about for a few seconds.

  35. Hellooo👋🏼
    I’m just a bit confused about the limited time prize. Because in the game it says I will get the volleyball net if I complete the quest before time limit. And here you mentioned that I will get the volleyball pool set as the limited time prize!
    So which one of them is actually the limited time prize?
    And when you say volleyball pool set, is it bought by simoleons or real money from store?
    Thanks a lot👍🏼

    • The vollyball net is the time limited prize, you unlock the ability to build pools and pool items by completing the quest even if you don’t finish in the time limit.
      But you can find a vollyball net in the teen idol house once you unlock that but it’s only one net, you cannot buy anymore if you don’t complete this one in time.
