The Sims Freeplay- Hobbies: Diving


20140216-164225.jpg This post will tell you all you need to know about the diving hobby. Who can dive?

Preteens, teens and adults

How can you be a diver?

You need to build the swim center

Where can you dive?

At the swim center and when you finish the collection for the first time you can unlock diving boards to use at home

What are the diving options?

  • brief leap- 10 mins
  • aquatic lunges- 1 hour
  • disciplined dive- 12 hours
  • all day dive – 1 day

What are the diving levels?

  1. Oafish
  2. Maladriot
  3. Stage diver
  4. Intermidiate
  5. Flipper
  6. Master

How do I collect diving medals?

click on the diving board and select an option once the exclamation mark appears your sim will dive and you will receive a medal

7.What medals are there to collect?

Level 1 medals are:

  • Sim Tsunami
  • Twist, Flip and Drench
  • Tidal Backward Spin

Level 2 medal is:

  • Silver Bomb

Level 3 medals are:

  • Tilt-O-Sault
  • Triple Pickle Flip

Level 4 medals are:

  • Fist from heaven
  • Spiral Spill

Level 5 medals are:

  • Golden Reverse Spin
  • Silent Nibiru

Level 6 medals are:

  • Fancy Flip and Twist
  • Poseidon

What do I win?

The first time you complete the collection unlocks diving boards for home pools, the second time unlocks a lifeguard chair which costs S4000 and Further times gives you 3LPs

I cant find one of the medals, any tips?

The only advice I can give you is to keep going, that is the only way you can find them- there is no trick to it, its completely random

It it worth using lucky spin?

I would say no, it doesn’t give you one that you need it just gives you one at random so really it is probably just a waste of LPs

How do I start the collection again?

Once you have finished the collection you can click dive again at the bottom of the diving collection list to start over

  1. Hello !! Hermione here again!! Sorry to bother u again but my two Sims have been diving for 3 months doing a disciplined dive (12 hrs- wait u probs already knew that!!!) And are on level 6. They have lots more medals that they can get, but they are constantly getting the same ones like sim tsunami… is there any way to speed this up?
    ~Thanks again for all of your helpful replies, Hermione~

    • Not really, you just have to keep trying, as they are level 6 you may just want to do the quickest option over and over, I know it’s a bit annoying but you will probably get them quicker 🙂

      • Okay thanx, my woodworking Sims and figure skating Sims have unlocked everything and are both on their 6-7 collection, every time It takes me longer and longer to. Complete them… is it the same with diving, should I just keep going?
        Thanx again, Hermione 🙂

      • Yeah just keep going 🙂

  2. Hi, im Bin “bad english” again ^^
    I just have a question: im doing the pool quest and the target is finish the 1st level medal. My sim has 2 medals is Twist …, Tidal … And silver bomb (of lv 2). I have done many times but still not able to find the sim tsunami medal 😦 Is it because im in the level 2 so cant have that medal? 😦
    I look forward to receiving your answer.
    Thank you so much.

  3. With the most recent update, I keep getting the lifeguard chair prize, but have no idea what it does or where it goes. It doesn’t seem to be in the home store… Do you know what the lifeguard chair prize is? Is it worth the work? I was getting 3 LPs before the update, but now it’s just the chair every time.

  5. Hi again. I’m looking for your opinion, once again. My quest requires doing a Triple Pickle Flip using a diving board in a neighboring town. I have two divers that are qualified to do it. One is an adult, one is a pre-teen. (Both have done one in the past and are above level 3).

    In your opinion do any of the following make any difference getting it done quicker? I’m on day two, mostly using the 10 minute and one hour dives. Should I use the pre-teen or the adult? Should I use the community pool or one at a house? Should I try the longer dive times? Any other options? And how long do you usually give it until you skip it with LPs?

    Skipping tasks brings me to another question. I’m almost done with “Sous Judgmental” and I need a toddler to make mud pies. I was going to skip that one, since my toddler is now a pre-teen. I do have a brand new baby, so I can grow him. But my question is, there is no option to skip the task. I’ve not seen that before, but I rarely look, because I do 98% of the tasks, that’s the fun of playing. Is it common to not be able to skip tasks?

    Thanks again for your work and help,

    • Hello again, I would just do the 10 minute option over and over again until you get it, longer options aren’t going to help you find it quickly, it doesn’t matter what sim you use, I would probably use a preteen though as the adult can do something else like gardening to make money and I would do it at a neighbours house. And the time before you skip it really depends on how patient you are or how many LPs you have, I would probably give it a full day of trying before giving up as I am not very patient!
      Yes it is common you can’t skip tasks for quests, you can only skip on social tasks and weekly tasks.
      Hope this helps!

  6. Looking for your opinion – is it worth restarting a hobby? I’m using 4 divers simultaneously to rack up LPs from the medal collection, but once they reach maximum level it might make sense to restart them at level 1 to also collect all the levelling up prizes again. I’m guessing that taking up another hobby temporarily would then let me come back to diving at level 1. Levelling up also seems to increase town value so if I abandon a hobby I wonder if my town would lose value?

    • Yes it is worth it, just switch over to another hobby for one go at that then you can go back to diving and level up again, it won’t make your town lose value

      • Yay, it worked. I think it’s important to have at least one Sim fully skilled in each hobby, which seems to let a newbie get any of the collectibles. Thanks 🙂

  7. If i complete the hobby and get all the medals, do i need to buy the diving boards? 😕 😦

  8. 🙂 Have a wonderfull day! 🙂

  9. Hello! I have an adult and teen sim currently doing the diving hobby, but I’m having a weird issue. They level up INCREDIBLY slow. Like, they will MAYBE increase 1% after diving for at least a day straight. That’s a glitch, right? Or is that normal?…

  10. I have two preteens and one adult on diving and my adult is on level 3 and my preteens are on level 1. Last night the preteens were about %90 through level one and leveled up. This morning they were %4 through level one but are achieving level two medals!

    • There is a problem with the hobby bar, it isnt increasing correctly but as your sims can still level up they can still do the hobby.

      • Thanks! I thought so after noticing that my other hobby bars were doing it, except for my fashion designer( He’s a level six and needs to get one more item!)
        Love the blog,

  11. You are amazing this really helped!

  12. Finished the diving hobby, bought a diving board for a Sim home pool. The base won’t layer on the tile, it goes on the grass leaving just the tip of the board over the pool water. What is the trick to installing the diving board properly? Hope you know the solution to this problem.
    Your blog is fantastic! I so appreciate all the time you must have put in compiling all this information.

  13. Thanks so much. Now I get it. Guess a picture really is worth 1,000 words.

  17. How much does the lifeguard chair cost?

  18. Whenever I try and make my sim dive its saying that it can’t do the task even though nothing is surrounding the diving board to stop it from doing the task. Any help?

  19. Looking for a neighbor with a diving board. P.s. I’m almost done with the hobby to get mine

    Game Center bflymomma

  20. I have to perform the triple pickle flip in a neighbours town, can this be done in the swimming centre of a neighbours town?

  21. I don’t remember if I finished this quest on time before but if you did finish this on time, are the diving boards free? Bc on my sims, it costs LPs. I wanted to buy diving boards for my pool bc I want my sims to do their diving in my hobby house instead of doing it in the swimcenter. And the diving boards I need to buy costs LPs but they’re all only rated one star, why is that?

  22. Another question, what is a “lucky spin”? I kept reading it in your other posts but I don’t know what it is

  23. Can I use the lucky spin to get all of the medals?

  24. how can I get 3 stars diving boards? There must be such, right?
