  1. 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

  2. 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

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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?

    • 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!!

  6. 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.

  7. 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 🙂

  8. 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?

  9. 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?

  10. 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.

  11. 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.
