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:
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.
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|
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!
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
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:
I was hoping for some breakdancing outfits!
- From the second time onwards each time you complete the collection you will earn 5LPs
