The Sims Freeplay- Guide to Life Dreams and Orbs

A lot of people find the life dreams concept confusing to understand, this guide will give you step by step instructions on how to give your sim a personality, completing life dreams, collecting, passing on or using orbs.

For Frequently Asked Questions about Life Dreams please read this post

1. Giving your sim a personality

When creating or adding a sim the first tab is the personality tab

20141119-163634.jpg
or

If you didn’t give a sim a personality when creating them you can click on the wardrobe and select browse clothes to find the personality tab

20141119-161039.jpg

20141119-160928.jpg
You can choose from:

Changing personality

Remember if you change personalities all progress towards the life dream will be lost

The symbol circled in the image below is what to click on to change a sims personality (in the life dreams tab)

20141119-162535.jpg
2.Choosing a life dream

Go to life dreams tab and click choose a life dream and the list of 3 life dreams to choose from will appear

20141119-163710.jpg
or

The screen will appear straight away once a sim has aged for you to select a life dream, either select one and click OK or if you click NOT NOW, then you can go to the life dreams tab, and select choose a life dream to choose from a new list of 3 dreams.

20141119-161511.jpg

When selecting a life dream go for the ones that are most suitable for you, don’t pick ‘I want to do horse tricks’ for 3 hours if you can’t get on the game every 3 hours. If you don’t know how long a life dream takes you can usually select the object that you will need to use and it will give you a time so ‘I want to observe fish’ click on a fish tank and you will see the longest option is 5 hours. (do this before you select it as a life dream incase it isn’t long enough!)

3. Do what the life dream tells you to do

Most are very obvious, if your sim wants to watch animals on TV, select a TV option (I usually pick the longest option so in this case it would be movie marathon, this gets the dream done quickly)

A life dreams symbol appears on the action once you have selected it as your life dream. So you know which ones will increase the life dream!

20141119-161601.jpg

4. Age your sim

Once the life dream for that stage has been completed you can age your sim early

You can advance age early in three ways, either click yes when the pop up below appears:

20141119-162350.jpgOr if you select no you can advance age from the life dreams menu

20141119-162358.jpg
or

Wait until the timer for that stage is up:

20141119-162454.jpg

The green circle around your sim is the timer, once it gets to red that stage is almost up!

5. Repeat steps 2-4 for further life stages

Once your senior has completed their life dream it will say fufilled life dream in the menu.

NOTE: You cannot give their orb to another sim until that senior passes on and leaves it behind.

Now your seniors can plant and enjoy the rest of their life or you can end their life early too.
Go to the age controller tab and click on the symbol circled in the image below:

20150318-181304.jpg

Then click advance, it is free if they completed their life dreams!

20150318-181314.jpg
Which will turn their timer red

Once their timer is up an exclamation mark will appear above their head, click on it, select yes when the pop up below appears:

20141119-164943.jpgThen the grim reaper will come and end their life, leaving the orb in their place.

20141119-164948.jpg

6. Pick up the orb

The way I do it is by going to buy mode and clicking on it and storing it in my inventory

20141119-163742.jpg

Now it is in there you can use it to:

7. Give orb to a new sim or keep to build places

Giving to another sim

In step 1 where you give your sim a personality you will now be able to see an orb is available (if the first sim had a sporty personality this next sim needs a sporty personality too) click on the personality and there you can select the stored orb if you want to (if not select no orb)

20141119-160400.jpg

20141119-160405.jpg
Your first sim will get a bronze orb, giving it to another sim now gives that second sim the chance to get it up to a silver, then a third sim can get it to a gold and a fourth sim to a platinum.

Bronze to Silver

Silver to Gold

Gold to Platinum

Keep it to build a place

But if you don’t want to give it to another sim and instead want to use it to build a place then just keep it in your inventory until you need it

Geeky orbs= Arcade

1 Bronze Geeky orb, 1 Silver Geeky orb

Sporty orbs= Beach

2 Bronze Sporty orbs, 2 Silver Sporty orbs

Entertainer orbs= Carnival

5 Bronze Entertainer orbs, 2 Silver Entertainer orbs

Animal Fanatic orbs= Pet Park

2 Bronze Animal Fanatic orbs, 4 Silver Animal Fanatic Orbs

If you want to build the arcade and your first sim got you a bronze geeky orb you will need to give that orb to another sim who can then get the orb to a silver, then you can get a third sim to get a bronze geeky orb and the arcade can then be built!

Once you have built the place there are things in them to build to, using the same orbs:

20141119-165037.jpg

If you wanted to build the pet park I would have 6 sims all at once working towards a bronze orb, once 4 of them have completed their life dreams they can then be passed onto 4 new sims to get them to a silver. The 2 bronze ones can be stored until needed.

Wondering how many orbs you will need for each place? click here!

Pause a sim

You need a platinum orb to pause your sim at that life stage forever, this post explains how to do that

I hope this has made it a bit clearer!

The Sims Freeplay- Guide to Seniors

image

How do I create a senior?
To be able to age an adult into a senior you need to have completed the seniors quest
You will then be able to bake a birthday cake on a stove which takes a day and costs 5LPs. Once the birthday cake is made click on it and then you can click on your adult and select the option to have birthday, they will then age into a senior. This post explains in more detail birthday cake ageing

If you have completed the life dreams and legacies quest then you no longer need to bake birthday cakes, they will age automatically.

What is next?
They will probably look strange so take them to a wardrobe to change their hair and clothes.
Needs
Hunger- fridge
Bladder- toilet
Energy- bed, chair, coffee machine
Hygiene- shower, bath
Social- talking to another sim, phone
Fun- lots of things including tv and gardening!

If you have completed the life dreams and legacies quest then when your seniors life cycle is up, they will pass into the afterlife.

What hobbies can seniors do?

Can seniors work?

No they can’t.

What else can they do?

Play bingo at the bingo hall on the mysterious island

Pros: Have different hobbies to choose from, can bake and garden.

Cons: They can’t work, they only have a few clothes to choose from and they all look the same!

I don’t see why seniors can’t have dyed hair!

Seniors can interact with sims of all ages! Read the  Relationships post for more details.

Hope this helps!

Thanks for reading!
