  1. Then once that task is done you need to click on the lasers again (switch off- 2 seconds)
  • Investigate the robot- 15 minutes

    image

image

  • Browse new store (click on store icon in entrance)
    image
  • Cheer with another sim- 1 minute (interaction)

QUEST IS COMPLETE!

The entrance to the mall now needs to be cleared before you can unlock the next areas (including the Catwalk Model Hobby)

Is the prize worth it?

Yes, I think it is- otherwise you have an empty space on the top level of the mall!
The burger bar is located on the top level of the mall above the shops you have already opened.

NOTE: you need to click on the upstairs button at the mall to get the option to build the burger bar. If you can’t see the button you need to have a sim go to the mall. Click on a bench on the left side upstairs as if you want that sim to “rest from shopping.” The icon should appear now.
image

image

What can you do with the bar?

Adults can have burgers (wait for burger- 1 hour) have a sim serve at the bar (10 hours) so that sim can have a burger- 10 minutes

Teens can have burgers but also milkshakes at the bar (wait for milkshake- 10 minutes) if you want them to have a milkshake you again need a sim serving and then 2 sims sitting at one table as they share the milkshake.

My Guide to the Mall shows you what needs cleaning in the mall, how much the stores cost and what clothes you unlock in each store!

Thanks for reading!

How do I distract the robot?

The Sims Freeplay: How do I have so many LPs?

I constantly get asked this question, “how do you have so many LPs? I don’t have any!”

The one word answer: Cooking!

The cooking hobby is the best way I have found of making a lot of LPs very quickly, some people seem confused about how this works so I will be explaining exactly what I do in this post.

Firstly you need to complete the Bread Winner Quest to unlock the cooking hobby

Then you need:

  1. Sims– as many as possible, you can have 1-10 in one house, obviously the more you have the quicker you are going to complete the collection
  2. Oven, Toaster and Counter for each sim– if you have 6 sims, you will need 6 ovens, 6 toasters and 6 counters (TIP: if you have a toaster on a corner counter and it cannot be accessed by any sim you only need one toaster in the house for all sims to use)
  3. Space– I use an empty house with all sims in one room, they are spaced out in their own workspaces with an oven and toaster on the counter, just so another sim doesn’t get in their way and cause them to cook a meal without getting a collectible- this can happen if they are squashed together. NOTE: you don’t need all your sims in one house, I just do because it is easier

image

Next you need to start cooking!

The one minute option, cheese and tomato on toast is the one you want to select

So click on the oven, click cooking and then on cheese and tomato on toast, it costs S5 each time but you get a lot more simoleons back when you find a new item.

image

Every time you make a dish a plate is left on the floor,  I clean each one up after each dish is made, otherwise the house will be full of dishes and it really slows down the game.

20140911_162359Black circle under plates– if a black circle appears under your plate this means you have so many plates in one pile so when you clean up it will take you several goes at cleaning (as you have so many plates to clean up) before the black circle will gradually decrease and the plates will disappear.

TIP: to save time click clean up, then cancel the action when they bend down to pick it up, the dish will disappear and you save some time!
image

Once you have completed the whole collection you will get 5LPs (you need to complete this hobby once to unlock chopping boards before you start earning LPs when you complete it) with lots of sims you can complete this collection in under an hour!

Make sure you then click restart collection before another sim finishes making the dish

image

This video shows me completing the cooking hobby very quickly:

You also earn simoleons!

Each time you find a new collectible:
image

Spatula
Bronze= S25
Silver= S60
Gold= S150
Grater
Bronze= S25
Silver= S80
Gold= S250
Chefs Knife
Bronze= S50
Silver= S100
Gold= S275
Whisk
Bronze= S75
Silver= S200
Gold= S500
Rolling Pin
Bronze= S500
Silver= S500
Gold= S500
Measuring Spoon
Bronze= S500
Silver= S500
Gold= S500

And XPs!

Each row you complete you get an XP reward:
image

  • 1st- 750XPs
  • 2nd- 1000XPs
  • 3rd- 1500XPs
  • 4th- 2000XPs
  • 5th- 3000XPs
  • 6th- 5000XPs

And a reward for each time you level up:

Level 2 Hot Mess Maker= 250XPs
Level 3 Ready Meal Maestro= 500XPs
Level 4 Home Cooking Hero= S750
Level 5 Flavor Savior= 10,000 town value
Level 6 Hail to the Chef= 1LP

Once your sim gets to level 6 cooking it is a good idea to put them onto a different hobby for one go at that, I use the ghost hunters hobby as it is quite quick too, then I go back to cooking to start from level 1 again.
image

This means you will get more money, XPs, town value and an LP for levelling up to level 6 again.

Don’t worry- going back to level 1 doesn’t mean they will just find level 1 items as you have unlocked them all now!

 

Hope this helps!

The Sims Freeplay- Hobbies: Breakdancing

A DANCE TO REMEMBER – BOOM BOX – TEEN OR ADULT SIMS – PRIZES: BREAKDANCING THEMED ITEMS AND 5LPs

TIME LIMITED HOBBY – TIME: 7 DAYS – TIME LIMITED PRIZE: DJ BOOTH

Once you complete the Salsa Dancing hobby you will be able to complete this hobby using your teen or adult sims, to begin this hobby you need to buy the boom box from the promotions r us store for S5,000 and place it in one of your sims houses:

image

I cannot place the boom box, it says its locked/ limited item, what do I do? You will have this problem if you try and place it from the new items tab, look in your inventory instead to be able to place the boom box in one of your sims houses.

The 7 day time limit will begin as soon as you complete the salsa dancing hobby, if you complete the breakdancing hobby in the time limit you will unlock the DJ booth:
image

Your teen or adult sim needs to click on the boom box and select one of the options:

  • Quick Break- 1 hour 30 minutes
  • Long Break- 10 hours  30 minutes

NOTE: the first time you complete this hobby you can only buy one boom box so only one sim can complete this hobby but you can send another sim to a neighbours town to complete this hobby (if they have a boom box) after the first time as many sims as you want can complete this hobby as you can buy as many boom boxes as you want

After the time has passed come back and click the exclamation mark above your sims head to find one of the breakdancing collectibles. Every time your sims complete one of the options above their breakdancing hobby skill level up percentage will increase, once they reach 100% they will level up, there are 6 levels. You need to reach level 6 to be able to unlock all of the breakdancing collectibles, once unlocked you will be able to find them.

The table below shows the level up percentage for each option:

This may change in future updates

 LEVEL 1 hour 30 minutes 10 hours 30 minutes
1-2 85% 330%
2-3 42% 165%
3-4 36% 141%
4-5 23% 89%
5-6 18% 70%

NOTE: it says 330% but you will start from 0% at level 2

The next table shows you for each level what breakdancing collectibles you unlock (so you can then find those ones too) and also the level up reward that a second and future sims will receive when they level up in this hobby:

 LEVEL  TITLE 1st TIME LEVEL UP UNLOCKS 2nd+ TIMES LEVEL UP REWARD
1 Biting Breaker Top Rock and Six Step are unlocked in the hobby collection
2 Foundation Fanatic Helicopter and Baby Freeze are now unlocked in the hobby collection 250XP
3 Power Move Monster Hollowback and Air Chair are now unlocked in the hobby collection 500XP
4 Clean and Dope 2000s and Windwill are now unlocked in the hobby collection S750
5 Fresh Flava Headspin is now unlocked in the hobby collection 10,000 Town Value
6 Legendary Style Head Elbow Spinner, Air Flares and One-Handed Chair Flare are now unlocked in the hobby collection.

You can now complete the collection!

1LP

NOTE: only the first sim completing this hobby needs to get to level 6 to unlock all the collectibles, future sims will be able to find any collectible even if they are only on level 1 in this hobby  (and they can do the shortest option to try and find the collectibles quicker!)

You won’t find a new collectible each time, you will get repeats, if this happens just keep going, you will find them eventually! If it is still taking too long you can use the lucky spin on the row where you cannot find the item, this will cost LPs, when you click on the LP button it will clear the row and give you a random collectible on that row so you aren’t guaranteed a new item (you will get back any other collectibles you already had in that row) Need to earn some LPs to use the lucky spin?

 

The completed breakdancing collection is shown below, once you complete the collection you need to click ‘start a new collection/restart breakdancing trophies’ at the top of the hobby collection screen, this clears the board so you can complete the collection again to earn more rewards (you will only get the option to restart the hobby collection when you have completed the collection):

You will earn XPs when you complete a row in the hobby but to complete the collection you need to find all 12 of the collectibles

If you complete this hobby in the time limit you will unlock the DJ Booth, you can find it in the electronics section and it costs S100,000! (far too expensive!) And a sim doesn’t even seem to be able to dance while another is DJing
image

The rewards for completing this collection are the breakdancing themed items and 5 LPs:

  • The first time you complete this collection you unlock the breakdancing themed items (even if you don’t manage to complete in the time limit) it seems to just be lights, wallpaper and flooring:

image

I was hoping for some breakdancing outfits!

  • From the second time onwards each time you complete the collection you will earn 5LPs

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT THIS QUEST

please read before asking

How do I start this discovery quest?
Find the dancers in the park

Why can’t I do this discovery quest yet?
You cannot do more than one discovery quest at the same time, if you are currently on another one (the list can be found here) you will not be able to do this one until that one is completed

Can I do discovery quests at the same time as a main quest?
Yes you can

Do I have to do this quest?
If you don’t start the quest you don’t have to do it at all but if you have already started it you need to complete it before you can move on to the next quest

I haven’t started this quest yet, will it still be available when I want to do it?
Yes it will be, you can choose to start it whenever you like

Help! I used the wrong aged sim to watch the dancing couple, now I can’t enthuse, what should I do?
Try using two adult sims to enthuse, if you still don’t get the option you may need to contact EA

I left the villa, how do I get back?
Use the car at the park

I explored the villa but the roof is still on, how do I eat hors d’oeures?
You will need to contact EA to see if they can fix this for you as I am unable to fix technical issues

My sims won’t cheer on the fantasias, why?
If they are still in the park you won’t be able to complete this goal. Have all sims leave the villa and go back to the park, restart your device and hopefully the dancers should have left the park. Go back to the villa using the car to cheer them on.

The task have two pairs of sims chatting won’t complete, why?
Are you sure you used 2 pairs of sims? (4 sims)

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

Do you get to keep the cat you rescue?
No, you never see the cat

All sims left the villa but it didn’t complete the task, what should I do?
Try and have all your sims not doing any action, this sometimes makes the game recognise you have completed that goal

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

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 salsa dancing hobby 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 now that you have started it, if you don’t start it you don’t have to do it

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

This quest unlocks the salsa dancing hobby, does the time limit start straight away once I have completed this quest?
Yes, the time limit for the hobby starts straight away once this quest is complete, you can click no when the hobby pop up appears but this does not stop the timer going down
NOTE: the breakdancing hobby timer starts as soon as you complete the salsa dancing hobby


NOTE: Last updated July 2016.
