Hi I want to take a life orb from a sim who is not dead for example when my sim was a preeten she has the bronze life orb I wanted to take it bevause I needed it but I couldn’t
Was she trying to upgrade the bronze orb to a silver? Or earning a bronze orb? If she was earning a bronze there is no orb for her to give to someone else but if she was using a bronze orb and trying to turn it into a silver you can change her personality and you will find the bronze orb on the ground to give to someone else. If you are still confused about life dreams check out my frequently asked questions post here: https://thegirlwhogames.blog/2016/02/27/the-sims-freeplay-life-dreams-and-legacies-faqs/
I can’t finish the quest because I’m stuck on complete a life cycle. It says,my sim has completed her life dreams,but when I go to age controller I can’t click to pass her to the afterlife. What can I do to fix this issue. I already tried uninstalling and reinstalling and restarting my phone
Are you on the ‘complete a cycle of life’ goal yet? If not you will not be able to pass them on until the afterlife yet.
so what happen if all of main quest are finish? what task i should do after?
Once you complete the main quests you can complete the discovery quests: https://thegirlwhogames.blog/2015/11/15/the-sims-freeplay-discovery-quests/ new discovery quests and events are added to the game regularly so there is always something to do.
Hi. If I didnt complete this quest, will the sim automatically ageing? Thank you.
Once you start this quest your sims will begin to age even if you don’t finish it
How do you make an adult adopt a child? And does it have to be a baby or can it be a toddler, teen or preteen?
You can only adopt a child if both that child’s parents have passed on and are no longer in the game. They don’t have to be a baby, they can adopt any age group
Hello! I am on level 32 but I haven’t had this quest. How do I start it?
Is it too late?
No it isn’t too late, you are probably still on a previous main quest, all main quests have to be completed in the order they appear in this post: https://thegirlwhogames.blog/2014/02/11/the-sims-freeplay-main-quests/
Hi. I am suppose to go to computer to research dr whoozits memorabilia. But I don’t get the option on the computer. Am I missing a step? Tks for ur advise.
Are you using the sim that you made a senior during this quest?
What happens if my preteen sims parents die
What happens to your preteens? Nothing, they will continue to live their life until they are ready to age.
If my sim dies will they be able to pass down their hobbies to their children?
No, but a sim can complete any hobby they want, they will just start from level 1
Hello, I have a question. Let’s say a mom dies, and the dad is still alive and remarries, will you still have to pay for a ring and a baby? Also can one married sim be an adult, while the other married sim ages and dies? Can senior sims marry? Can you adopt a child if both of its parents died? Can that child have step parents or step siblings? I’m sorry that I’m asking many questions, but it’s because I’m on the in stitches quest and I have a good story line that I want to do, but it can’t work unless I know if it is possible to do these things.
Yes they will need to buy a new ring and pay for children if they remarry
Yes, one parent can age and die whilst the other remains
Senior sims can marry
Babies can be adopted but only if both parents die
They can’t really have step parents or siblings as it doesn’t say they are but sims can remarry and move in with their children.
hi,pls i cant complete the quest on time bcause today is the last day for the quest and i have’nt gone far what will happen to my sims and there is a ring around my sims neck.
You can still complete the quest once the time limit is up you just won’t get the singing salmon. If you are confused about how life dreams work this post will help: https://thegirlwhogames.blog/2016/02/27/the-sims-freeplay-life-dreams-and-legacies-faqs/
Do you think a baby from a pregnancy will count for the last part of this quest: ‘have a baby’, if I would start the pregnancy early enough?
Oh good question, I have no idea, sorry! Let’s hope someone else has done this and can answer this for us, sorry about that!
Hi! Did you figure this out, could the 1 day baby also come from a 9 day pregnancy? I’m on the quest now, and having a pregnancy going at the same time – I might need to add a day to the time for the quest if the baby can be ‘used’ in the quest. Thank you in advance! P.s. love the blog, so helpful!!
This is 4 years too late, but having a baby through the pregnancy event does complete the task
Thank you for letting us know!
When the sim has to “debunk theory of relativity while drinking tea” the picture shows 13 hours and 20 minutes but the description says 10 hours and 30 minutes. Can you tell me which one is correct?
The description is correct. The picture is just there so you can see how to complete it, I haven’t completed this quest since the time changed so I don’t have an up to date picture.
Once you pass life dreams and legacies, do you need to use lp to get a baby?
Once you complete the quest it costs simoleons to add a baby instead of LP
How many simoleons does it cost
The cost varies depending on how many sims you have in your town, the more sims you have the higher the cost.
Can I stop the aging?
You can pause your sims ageing, this post explains how: https://thegirlwhogames.blog/2015/10/02/the-sims-freeplay-pausing-a-sims-life/
Is their no other main quests after this one?
No this is the final main quest but there are lots of discovery quests: https://thegirlwhogames.blog/2015/11/15/the-sims-freeplay-discovery-quests/
I am stuck on this quest because of the “have scientific breakthrough in the bath” part of it. I know it’s probably just me making a stupid mistake but why won’t it let me do that? Do I have to have a sim that worked in the scientist career for a day or till they got to level 10? Please if you have any answer that would be extremely appreciated 🙂
You need to click on a bath and select this option
I tried doing that but the option won’t appear for any of my sims
You need to use the sim you aged to a senior who has the life dream
Can you still age a sim with a birthday cake after you complete this quest?
Yes you can but if you wait for them to age on their own you will save yourself 5LP
do i need a senior sims to do this quest?
No but you need an adult sim to age into a senior sim during this quest and then they will pass on
What if i dont have the snow park?
You will need to have the snow park built for the seniors quest so you will have it to be able to complete this quest.
Hi! is there any other limit to the singing salmon other than the recharge time? like say if i buy 10, and put all 10 in one house, can i inspire all 10 sims simultaneously?
No there are no other limits, you can have as many as you want in each house
When the sim passes away, do they disappear completely for example, from other sims friends list?
Yes, they will be deleted from the game
Hi, do you have a article on leveling up? Thanks .😁😁😁😁😁😁😀
Sorry I don’t, what do you want to know about levelling up?
How long does it usually take to age a sim?
Baby- 5 days
Toddler- 7 days
Preteen- 8 days
Teen- 12 days
Adult- 24 days
Senior- 9 days
So if I don’t start this quest then my sims won’t age?
That is correct.
What happens when you finish all quests in the game, what will you do
The game is constantly updated with new events so you should have something to do most of the time.
My senior sim is stuck at 90% of taking a bath to achieve a scientific breakthrough. I’ve given her so many baths it’s ridiculous and the percent will not increase to 100%. Do you know if this is a common issue? Will I be able to collect an orb?
I haven’t heard of this issue before unfortunately, I would suggest you contact the makers to see if they can fix this issue for you, this post explains how to contact them if you are unsure: https://thegirlwhogames.blog/2016/05/29/the-sims-freeplay-contacting-ea-firemonkeys/
hello, i dont want my sims to automatically age. Does the age controller unlock at the beginning of the quest, before i complete any of the quest? Can i complete the “in stitches” quest without the age controller automatically unlocking?
Once sims get to the end of their life stage you can choose to reverse them back to the beginning of that life stage for free so your sims don’t have to age if you don’t want them to.
Do you have to kill a senior sim during the quest or are you allowed to say no?
A senior does have to pass on to be able to complete this quest.
Do other sims age up to the next life stage automatically when I do this quest? For example, if I have a toddler, will they automaticaly become a preteen during this quest, or do they stay the same age?
Also, will they still be a toddler after I finish the quest?
All life stages will begin to age by completing this quest. The time they take to age up varies on how many actions they complete but you can always reverse them back to the beginning of the life stage for free so they don’t have to age.
