LEVEL UNLOCKS: 17 UNLOCKS: 2-5 storys, stairs and firepoles TIME LIMIT: 6 days PRIZE: elevators and escalators pack


If you have not unlocked this quest yet it is because previous quests have to be completed first.

This quest is unlocked at level 17. Once completed you will be able to add extra floors to your houses! You have 6 days to complete this quest if you want the prize of the elevators and escalators pack (no its not actually a pack, you have to buy each one separately). If you don’t complete in 6 days you can still complete the quest you just won’t get the prize.

How long does this quest take to complete?

VERSION ONE– if this isn’t correct for you please scroll down for version two

  • Share ideas with wumples- 4 hours 20 minutes

  • Browse Internet- 4 minutes
  • Bake banana bread- 20 hours (doesn’t matter if burns, can be started early)
  • Check email- 48 seconds
  • Craft 1st set of woodworking items (don’t find all 3 before this goal as it won’t recognise you’ve completed it and you will have to find the next 3 too!)

  • Call home store on phone- 19 hours
  • Talk to wumples- 5 minutes

QUEST IS COMPLETE


VERSION TWO

Times may vary depending on the star rating an item has.

time and price varies depending on how many businesses you have already but these are the requirements I had

    • Send a sim to the community center
    • Talk to wumples- 2 minutes (at community center)
    • Press look upstairs button while at the community center (pulsing button in top right hand corner)

image

    • See wumples for psychoanalysis- 7 minutes

image

    • Share ideas with wumples- 3 minutes 30 seconds

image

    • Call home store hotline using phone: call hotline- 9 hours (this goal appears twice so if you make two sims do this option at different houses and leave one of them at that house until you get this goal for the second time you can save yourself 9 hours as it will complete the goal as soon as you go to that house)

image

    • Browse the Internet- 4 minutes (on a computer)
    • Bake banana bread- 20 hours (doesn’t matter if burns, can be started early)
    • Check email- 48 seconds (on a computer)
    • Creative chat with a sim- 2 minutes 48 seconds

image

  • Call home store on phone- 9 hours
  • Talk to wumples- 2 minutes
  • See wumples for psychoanalysis- 7 minutes
  • Have 3 sims dancing to stereo (task completes straight away)

QUEST IS COMPLETE

You can now add up to 5 floors to your house- a second floor costs 300,000, a third floor costs 500,000, a fourth floor costs 800,000 and a fifth floor costs 1,000,000!
You unlock stairs and firepoles even if you don’t finish the quest in time

image

Once you complete the patio, balcony and basement quests you will unlock 4 more stairs:

Prize: Elevators and Escalators

Is the prize worth it? Yes, there are some really nice elevators and escalators available but you do have to buy them, it also is quite tricky to complete the quest within the time limit especially if it takes you ages to  save up and build the community center.

Where can I find them? In the stairs section of the home store.

You cannot unlock the elevators or escalators if you do not complete this quest in the time limit

The woodworking hobby information can be found here

Thanks for reading!

The next quest is Teenagers

This quest was correct at 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 17 before you can start this quest

Can I complete this quest even though I am passed level 17?
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

I can’t afford the community center, how can I earn more simoleons?
This post may help

The game says I have to complete the multi story renovations quest to be able to build the community center, what is the problem?
There is no problem,  you have to start the multi story quest and the first goal is to build the community center so you cannot build it until you get that first goal in the quest

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

I don’t understand what you mean when you say you can do both call the home store/ hotline goals at once to save time?
This goal appears twice so it is like being able to start a goal early that you have access to (read the question below if you don’t understand this) to do this you need two sims and two different houses:
1- When you get the goal to call home store you can set sim 1 to do the task
2- In a different house which you need to stay away from until you get the second goal you can have sim 2 also do the task
3- When sim 1 is done you complete the goal the first time
4- Wait until you get the goal again to call home store and you can go to sim 2 to complete it straight away!

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

Does it matter if the banana bread burns? Will the goal still complete?
The goal will still complete even if it causes a fire

I crafted the 1st set of woodworking items before I got the task to, my game now won’t complete the goal, what should I do?
You will need to find the next 3 items in the second row to complete this goal

What do I get if I complete this quest in the time limit?
Elevators and escalators

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 ability to add up to 5 floors to your houses as well as unlocking stairs and firepoles 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

I completed the quest but I cannot place stairs, why?
Firstly make sure you have rooms upstairs and also give this post a read, it explains how to add stairs to a house

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. This is awesome! Helped me a lot! Thank u so much🤗

  2. Are there ladders?

  3. Do you know why there are two versions of this quest?

  4. Hey, I have a small problem. There’s a discovery quest for puppies, and the task says that I’m supposed to sit with the puppy. Thing is, I have no idea where the puppy had gone. It was supposed in one of the houses but I didn’t find it there or any other house nor in the park. What should I do?
    Please answer quickelly, there’s a limited time present.
    Thank you,
    Your blog have been very helpful 🙂

  5. I can’t build the community center unless I have completed the multi level quest… Please help… I really wanna make a 2-3 story house… Thank you

  6. What should I do if I found all of the collectibles of the first set, before the I got the goal and now I am stuck? I didn’t realize that i’d needed to wait to continue that hobby.

  7. I’m not able to buy the community center unless I start this quest first. Is there another way to begin this quest? It simply does not give me the option to buy it.

  8. Will my elevator not go from the 1st to the 3rd floor? That’s ridiculous! Everyone wants their elevator to go all the way to the top.

  9. Does it really matter if you complete the first set of wood working hobby before you are asked to?

  10. Hi so the elevators are only good for a 2 floor house right? I have the teen idol house and built an elevator but it obnly goes to the 2nd floor.

    • No you can use an elevator to get to the third floor too but one elevator won’t get you from the ground to the third floor, you need one to get you to the second floor then another to get you to the third

  11. I am on level 23 and still don’t have access to multi story renovations… The community center says I have to complete the quest in order to build it but its not an option for me. PLEASE HELP!

  12. I can’t build it. When I click in Community center it says ” please complete the multi story renovation quest” like how!? if I need to build the Community center to finish that quest

  13. Many, many Kudos to your blog. I just went through this quest after the Romance update, and the ‘Craft first three items’ task was not required. I’m assuming due to the change of time to 5 hours per carve, they took it out. I am not sure how long this will be the case, but at least on this run through, it wasn’t required. The rest of the Version 2 quest was the same, minus that task. Thank you for all that you do! Happy simming!

  14. * I do have multi story(upstairs) I don’t have basement or patios. There is no woman at the community centre x

  15. I don’t understand about the hothine call 19 hours. Can you explain further please?

    • Have one sim in one house select the option and at the same time have a sim in another house select that option. Now stay away from the second sim until you get the second goal to call the hotline.

  16. Version 2 seems significantly easier than version 1 – hopefully that’s the one that I’ll have

  17. I don’t know if you know but Carving Magnum Opus takes 12 hours 30 minutes now 🙂
    Idk when it changed but I am on that task so I thought I would let people know

  18. Do you know how many days are there for the second version? I’m still on the previous quest but only because I’ve started building the hair salon and it takes 2 days 18 hours and I won’t be able to build the center for another 2 days. Add to that another 2 it will take to build the center, and I’ve lost almost 5 days on that alone. I’m on the last task of the Weather Machine Quest and thinking about dragging it out until the time for that one expires, or very close to it.
    Thank you.

  19. Why can’t I build stairs? I have a second story.. I choose stairs but I can’t place them anywhere.

  20. Hi,
    Thank you for the time and energy you put in this blog. It’s very helpful! I was wondering if you can carve magnum opus on a workbench at home to get an early start? I see you did not put a start early note next to it, but just wanted to double check. Thank you so much!

    • You’re welcome! It didn’t say you could start it early as before you couldn’t, but as now they have changed it so you can woodwork at home before you complete this quest this task can be started early.

  21. What’s the difference between Rickety Elevator and Art Deco elevator?? Cuz I’m thinking of installing passenger lift and freight lift in my house in sims freeplay.

  22. it’s not letting me buy stairs and I just completed the quest

  23. Hey there I abso-freaking-lutely love your blog! It helps a lot however I’m a bit lost at the moment…You see I do quests all over the place 😛 I’m already level 30 but haven’t even built the Sorcerous Supplies building..I am doing now the Swimming Quest and it’s almost done..however I want to do the multi story r. quest next but the Community Center wouldn’t let itself be built cause it says I need to “Finish Multi Story R Quest First”… My question is…how am I supposed to Finish the quest if the first step is to build the Community Center?! Or am I doing something wrong?? In my park there is a bunch of quests awaiting like Puppies Nanny whatnot but I want this quest…Any advice is appriciates

    • Firstly it will be useful for you to know which are main quests and which are discovery quests so have a look at both of these posts for a list of the quests:
      Main- https://thegirlwhogames.wordpress.com/2014/02/11/the-sims-freeplay-main-quests/
      Discovery- https://thegirlwhogames.wordpress.com/2015/11/15/the-sims-freeplay-discovery-quests/

      Main quests have to be completed in the order they appear in that post so you cannot start on the multi story renovations quest yet, there are 5 main quests you need to complete between the swimming quest and the multi story quest. The first goal in the multi story quest is to build the community center so once you start the quest you will be able to do that.

      Discovery quests are quests that can be done in whatever order you like (except the 3 diy house quests which need to be completed in the order in the post) but you can only do one discovery quest at a time and you don’t even need to completed discovery quests if you don’t want to! The post above explains how you start each of those but there is no rush!
      I hope that helps a bit!

  24. That’s weird …..I don’t have the call hotline ! I’m using a phone so…..I’m still on the alien concept , if that’s what’s making a difference . I hope it comes when I do this quest ……:'(( do u know what I’m doing WRNG !?!?!

  25. The game says that I have to complete the Multi-Story renovations quest in order to build the Community Center? I’m not sure if this is a glitch

  26. Is there a limit to how many stories one house can have? I have a four story plus basement giant already. It is the house I test and add all the unlockables on. Can I expand it to 5, 6, 7, etc?

  27. They should pay you cz If it weren’t for this blog I would’ve quit playing a while ago. Just showin some appreciation yo, thanks alot.

  29. How do I get the elevator to go more than one floor? I put an elevator in my house but it will only go to the 2F, not 3F, or 4F. If the house has a basement, it is only B1 1F, but not 2F, 3F, etc

  30. Dear the girl who games,

    Thank you so so so much for the articles!!! It helped me a lot in finishing the quests and your articles are very complete and detailed…. They should pay you for doing this! Haha

    You are awesome!

  31. So I started the calling the hotline early so I could finish it and I went to the house and accidently canceled it and now it’s not an option to call the hotline anymore so will it pop back up when I tells me to call it the second time?

  32. What is the time limit for Version 2?

  33. It’s 10 hours and 30 mins for calling the hotline now

  34. Once you have more levels in a house can you have more sims in the house? I know with one story the limit is 10 sims, but can you have say 15 or 20 for a two story house?

  35. I have already bought the community centre but now it’s telling me to buy it what should I do?

  36. Hi, I’m desperate and about to stop playing this game because I literally can’t figure out all these quest. Nothing seems to work. I’ve tried to complete the quests but in the quest they will require an action it says my sims are unable to do. Hince my frustration. The Love is in the air quest requires my Sims to be romantic in order to complete it; but when I try it says they haven’t worked up to that yet and I need to complete the love is in the air!! I had both sims I want to be together in the same house take showers before everything I can think of. I do enjoy this game and I have spent an embracing amount of time on the houses which is why I 1st started. If you have time at all please help me. I’d love for you to be my neighbor maybe you could look at my town and tell me what’s wrong. Understand I’m not a gamer I just found this game and fell I love with the architectural aspects of the game it was only after that I discovered there is so much more to it.

    • When a quest requires you to do an action it means that you have to reach that goal in the quest before you can do it. You cannot be romantic in the love is in the air quest until you get the goal to be romantic on the game for the first time in that quest, after that you can be romantic whenever you like.
      The post is here: https://thegirlwhogames.wordpress.com/2014/02/11/the-sims-freeplay-love-is-in-the-air-quest/ Read it and it will tell you the goals you have to complete before they will get the goal to be romantic. If you aren’t on thar quest yet you will need to complete the bread winner and money grows on trees quests before you can do this one.

  37. I know it’s impossible to skip main quests, but I’ve been playing this game for a very long time, and I think I built the teen idol mansion before this quest. Then, for whatever reason, I never got the quest. Either that, or I passed level 17 before EA added the quest, and then the stairs tab just appeared in my home store. Anyways, I know I should probably just contact EA or something, but it’s really annoying to have to use elevators and escalators from Architect homes since I never had a chance to get the prize.

    • What quest are you currently on?
      I remember when this quest first came out and you had to complete it before you got the stairs so that wouldn’t be the reason. It may just be that you did infact do this quest and didn’t complete it in the time limit but forgot about it.
      You could contact EA about it but they probably wouldn’t be able to do anything.

  38. What if I will not start the quest yet? Will it comeback?

  39. Hello great blog by the way, it has helped me heaps. I am in the middle of version 2 and am at the call home store on phone task, you have it at 9 hours but mine is longer at 11.30 hours.

  40. Hey i just already start the Multi Story Renovation quest, i want ask the carve magnum task, i already start before the task pop up, but i did it in one of my sim house, is that okay ? Or should i use the work bench in the comunity center ? Thanks and sorry for my bad english hehe

  41. Can you do the woodworking part at a sims house?

  42. What if im in level 28 now. How can i get this quest? Maybe i failed before, how can i get the quest again

  43. I am on level 24 and still this quest hasn’t popped up. It says to start the quest click on the real estate sign in front of the house and when I do, there is no other option but submit this house. When I click on the community centre it says complete the renovation quest. What do I do???😥😥😥

  44. It’s been asked multiple times and you keep saying to complete other quests, but it tells me i need to COMPLETE the multi story quest in order to even build the community center but i can’t BEGIN the multi story quest until i build the community center… Is this glitched?

  45. Hi! Idk if u will read this since its way too new. Ok well I started this quest dats ago n it is 6 days (version one) but it is totally different where I dont need to find 1st set in woodworking hobby n the last task is dancing to stereo (3 mins). So is this the new update or something cuz it makes me feel “spdcial” for a while cuz i dint need to complete 1st set of the hobby.

  46. I don’t have that quest and I’m past level 17

  47. Hi! If I buy an elevator, can it be used for several floors (if I have 3 floors for example) or do I need to buy two of them, like for the stairs? Thank u, your blog is awesome 🙂

  48. Thank you. I’m going to be able to get my elevators and escalators!

    Love your blog – keep the good work up!
