  • Make it day all the time, or night all the time regardless of the time of day
  • You can make the weather random
  • You can make it rain (so you can use umbrellas!) (your sims can also get struck by lightning which makes them inspired!)

Is the prize worth it? Yes I think so, the snow outfits are free and they include snowboard suits and other items like woolly hats and earmuffs! Perfect to wear at the snow park!

Where can I find them? Outfits, hats and earmuffs (hair section) are in the wardrobe.

You cannot unlock the snow outfits if you do not complete the quest in the time limit

The next quest Multi Story Renovations unlocks up to 5 levels for your houses!

Thanks for reading!

This quest was correct at the time of writing, it may change.


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 16 before you can start this quest

Can I complete this quest even though I am passed level 16?
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

How do I send my sim to the park?
Go to the park and click on the whistle next to a sim who isn’t busy on the simtracker,this post explains more about the simtracker

How do I become friends with the alien?
Be nice to Osiris until your sim becomes friends with him, do this again to become best friends when you get that goal

What do you mean when you say a goal can be started early?
Any goal that you can normally do can be started early because you will have access to it and any goal that you can’t normally do you will have to wait until you get the goal to be able to complete it
The tip with this method is to put the sim doing that action early in a different house that you cannot go to until you get that goal or it will not work

I have spent S16,000 on items but the goal will not complete, why?
Make sure you are just buying items from the electronics section of buy mode

How do I negotiate with a sim eating plant?
You need to grow lettuce until it turns into a sim eating plant then when it has you will be able to negotiate with it

How do I get my sims to woohoo?
You need two sims who are partners to be able to get this interaction

I already have a world globe, do I have to buy another one?
Yes you do or you cannot complete this quest

I don’t have a stereo, where can I find one?
You can buy one from the electronics section

What do I get if I complete this quest in the time limit?
Snow outfits

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 snow park and weather machine 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

  1. Hi! You’re website is huge help ❤ I just finished the first task in the Alien Concept quest and I'm still in the park but cannot spot the Alien anywhere?? The telescope has disappeared and the alien still isnt in the park. Can i find the alien elsewhere? Ah :((

  2. How can I make snow or make rain across the sím town??

  3. I finished this only because of you 1000’000 Thanks to you

  4. Very sad that after i spent 16,000 on electronics my next step was to hibernate in bed. I know that this quest was posted a bit ago but I wish I had an idea but I started the quest. I followed the walk through and had everything started early that I could.

    • sorry but complain to EA for constantly changing the quests not to me because they change something in most quest with every update, like you I just play the game, I don’t know when they change something and I can’t reset my game every update to update every post.

  5. How do I know which version I have

  6. Is it random which version of the quest I get? Love your guides by the way! They’re very helpful

  7. Is there any types of snowy wintery outfits in one of the stores at the mall?
    Thank you!😃

  8. Your help is very helpful as is your guides when they work. I did 2 of the quests early at the beginning of the quest but it didn’t count so list time doing them over. But I would have been list without your he and guidelines. Thanks so much

  9. I already have world globe, do I have to buy another one?

  10. There’s no longer, hibernation task in version one

  11. Hi. Just an update, after I spent $16,000 on electronics, I was told to hibernate in bed

  12. Hello!
    I had to hibernate in bed as well. I had the 7 days version.
    And thank you for your wonderful guides 🙂

  13. Hi,
    Ever heard of the Puppy and Pals quest? Or something like that?

  14. Hi,
    I just finished the quest and I got the snowy outfits thanks to you
    so that I knew what to started first, one question
    Have you ever been ice skating before, I have and it was not easy and first!😊

  15. Has anyone had the problem with becoming Best Friends with the alien? I’ve got two sims who are now, but it appears to be stuck!

    • I’ve not heard of anyone having this problem before, one sim should just be able to be nice to the alien until they become best friends so I don’t know why its not working, you may want to contact EA if this continues

  16. Can you let me know when the alien will go away. He is becoming annoying. 😩

  17. can you tell me how to use the umbrella? I’ve change the weather to rain but I still can’t use umbrella

  18. Where is pond!

  19. Hi, is there anyway I can still get the snow clothing if I didn’t finish in time?

  20. I’ve spent over 16,000 and it wont finish. Does it all have to be at the same time? The only reason I can think of is that I spent like 10,000 then made all my sims go to work and then I spent like 10,000 more. If so that’s very stupid

  22. What if I didn’t completed the quest, is there a shop or anything where I can buy the snow outfits?

  23. Mine was the first version it said it was 7 days but then i was still on the 1st or 2nd day playing the quest then it suddenly changed and became 2 days which gives me lesser time to complete it. I thinkmit suddenly updated it to the new version which is the 2 day time limit. But thanks for your posts it helps me alot

  24. Wow this website helps me out a lot!! I wish you could plan my life like this lol

  25. Is it still work if i already buy the weather machine on 1st house and then i move the weather machine into the 2nd house? Or should i buy the weather machine on the 2nd house? Anw, i’m so glad to know your website:)

  26. THIS WEBSITE IS THE. BEST. EVER.
    You know I love ya #thegirlwhogames
    This website is really helpful!
    Plus, when I get way behind the time limit I check here first to help me decide if using Lifestyle points on the tasks is ok to catch up and get the limited prize
    But if the time limit is just two hours left
    And I see in this website that theres still a LOT to do and that I need a lotta LP to finish it all
    I have no choice but to let go of the limited time prize
    But this website saves me a LOT of LP
    BIG THANKS TO YOU! 😉

  27. Hi, I love you’re blog! I’m on level 27 right now, and I never got the weather machine quest. When I click the snow park, it is used to say I have to unlock it by completing the weather machine quest. Now I can unlock it, and I haven’t completed the quest. I checked the electronics section of the home store, and the weather machine wasn’t there. Did they stop doing this quest?

  28. These are so helpful. I could have finished this one in under an hour because you can start all the long ones early but I’m leaving the last one for a bit because I need to save up some more for the community center. Which I also know thanks to these guides.

  29. Hello beautiful! you can now use a baby for having a deep sleep in this mission with the 4 hour option instead of adults for 6hr 30 min option you can save for up to 1 and a half hour! 😉

  30. I apologize if this is a stupid question or already been answered somewhere, but how will I know when I’ve spent 16,000 on electronics when it doesn’t seem to be adding it up? I’ve just been buying a few items here and there since I didn’t finish the quest in time anyway, but I have no way of knowing how much I’ve already spent or how much more I have to buy to get to 16,000. Do you know if the game is keeping track of the total or if I have to spend a total of 16,000 all at once? Btw, thanks for all you do, you’re a tremendous help to everyone!

    • It doesn’t tell you how much you have left, but it will complete the goal when you have spend enough. Remember you can only buy items from the electronics tab to complete this goal, other items will not count towards this.
      You’re welcome!

  31. I had my toddler deep sleep in a bed early and then I left her alone. When I went back to her house when it was time to complete the deep sleep task it didn’t complete. Doe it only work if you do in an adult bed?

  32. Every time I enter the game it keeps saying cannot connect to server but I have wifi I am scared to delete it and I have signed in on Game Center do you have any suggestions? By the way love the blog!

  33. This may already have been answered, but is there any significance at all to the different weather patterns in terms of planting? Only I’ve noticed that I seem to have better luck getting the monument bonus for additional simoleons a lot more when I have the thunder storm, for example, and less chances for it if I have it snowing on my house lot. Has anyone else noticed this? Also, whenever Sims are working in a storm and get hit by lightning, it charges their stats, or inspires them. I thought that was pretty cool and now I almost always use the storm pattern whenever my Sims are working outside. 🙂

  34. So I’m working on my next task, my sim just chillin’ on a bench outside, and the weather machine is on “storm,” when I looked down and there’s this message:

    “Wow! Your Sim was struck by lightning! The zap has left them feeling charged!”

    Huh. Well, I guess that’s one to get a free cupcake. It was completely random by the way, and my sim was idle, meaning he wasn’t assigned to any task at the moment, and he wasn’t selected. I now feel like an old-school mental hospital doctor and want to electrocute all my sims.

    • Hahaha I’m with you there! xD I just let mine stand outside now, and wait for them to get zapped. Like the boy with the magnifying glass. XD

  35. Hi! Love your blog, it’s a big help! Just wanted to let you know that I am on this quest now and I got the two day time limit but I had to do the “end is nigh” task. Didn’t know if that was an updated thing or not but just a heads up for anyone about to start the quest, you may have to do this. Not sure if I’ll make it in the 2 days but that’s ok. 🙂

  36. Hi !! I did the 1 min 30 second find UFO but I can’t see any alien in the park . I searched the entire park but I can’t find the alien that was mentioned in your post

  37. Hi,

    Do you know the Alien Encounter Challenge where you get limited-edition Teleporter as a prize? I rarely see posts about this quest so I was wondering if this is something that we will get in the future. Thank you.

  38. Is it worth buying the weather machine? I can afford it but I’m not sure if it would be a waste of 70 thousand simoleons.

  39. When i placed my weather station it said some incompatable items were sent to my inventory? What is incompatable with the weather ststion? Thanks

    • Sometimes it says this even if you don’t have anything incompatible but it means things like inflatables in the pool will be moved to your inventory when you make it snow as the pool turns to ice.

      • Oh ok that makes sense, though i just made it daytime all the time, i get why now…duh lol thanks

  40. Your blog is so helpful! And I need your advise, I spent more than $16,000 on an Outdoor Cinema under Electronics in the home store but my goal isn’t completed. Does it have to be exactly $16,000 to complete the goal? Thank you!

    • It doesn’t need to be exactly S16,000 but I would suggest you buy things like TVs, computers and phones as the outdoor cinema was only recently added to the game so it probably doesn’t recognise it as completing this goal.

  41. Searching for UFOs in the park now takes 1 minute 30 seconds 🙂
