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) 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!


Prize: Burger Bar

Is the prize worth it? Yes, I think it is- otherwise you have an empty space on this level of the mall!
The burger bar is located on the middle level of the mall above the ground floor 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.

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.


You can now complete the Pretty Little Planters Discovery Quest


FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT THIS QUEST

please read before asking

How do I start this discovery quest?
Build the mall to start this quest

Does the time limit start when I click to build or once the building has complete?
Once it has finished building the quest and time limit will begin

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 building the mall you don’t have to do this quest at all but if you have already started building or started this quest 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

How do I distract the robot?
Click on the wind up dog then once that task is complete click on the lasers

My game will not recognise I have completed the leave the mall goal, 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?
The burger bar at the mall

I can’t complete construction on the burger bar, why?
You need to click on the upstairs floor button at the side of the screen to see the next floor at the mall

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 mall 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 building the mall you don’t have to do this quest but once it is built the quest will begin

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. Hi 🙂 I recently came across your site (which is amazing) and thought that maybe you might to able to help if possible. So I had completed this quest within the allotted time frame and the green symbol to build the burger bar appeared, but I was unable to build it at that time because I had another building under construction in my sim town. Afterwards when I went back to build the burger bar the symbol was gone. It’s been about a month now and still I am unable to build it. So I was wondering if you have ever heard of this happening and if you knew if any solutions to this problem?

      • Lol I know that and that’s what I’ve been doing since that is the only way to get to burger bar which is on the second level. Hopefully it will appear at some point.

      • that is how it appears, you press the upstairs button (at the side of the screen) so you can see the next floor, then you will be able to click on the icon to build it.

      • Apparently, there’s a glitch now which is confusing people. I couldn’t get the up arrow to select the second floor to show up, it’s simply not there like normal (at least since the most recent update). To get the Burger Bar icon to appear to start construction, I had to get a sim to ride the escalator up to where the bar would be, then click on the opposite side upstairs (that was blocked off for construction still) and then my sim did the footprint thing showing they couldn’t walk to where I was telling him to. At that moment, the camera view popped up a bit higher, and I could see the Bar icon.

        Like I said at the beginning though, there’s no upstairs arrow on the side of the screen in the mall anymore.

      • That’s what I have been doing but it still isn’t appearing. Maybe it’s a glitch or something, because I did finish the quest before the time limit was up.

      • 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 button should appear now.

  2. Hello, yesterday I started the construction of the burger bar. This morning I got the warning that the construction was finished, but I go to the mall and there is no bar and no icon to press!
    Besides, I cannot start any other construction because they tell that I have to finish this one.
    what do you think I can do?
    Thank you

  3. Hi and thank you for a brilliant site! You rock!
    I have a question regarding when the timer starts counting down the 7 days.
    As I understood it, the mall had to be built before the quest started but my timer started automatically after I finished a different quest (I don’t remember which one). At the time I had nowhere near enough simoleons to build the mall so I had no choice but to let the timer end without even beginning to build the mall.
    Do you think this is a bug or is that just the way it works? It has happened with the vacationers guide to the outdoors which isn’t part of the regular quests either.
    Thanks a million!

    • It is definitely a glitch, the quest should not start until you have built the mall, as you need it to complete the quest, I think you should contact EA to see if there is anything they can do

  4. Hey I finished the mall quest in time to build the burger bar but I have no upstairs button in the mall, it’s weird, it must be a glitch I keep closing down the game but it still won’t appear 😦

    • 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 button should appear now.

  5. So I completed the mall quest with 2 days to spare and it told me I could now build the Pickle Sauce Burger Bar. Well, I know the icon is supposed to show up on he 2nd floor for me to tap to build, except it isn’t there. I know your post says tap the arrow for the 2nd floor for it to show up. Problem is, my mall doesn’t show the floor options. My sims can ride the escalator up on the left side, and actually go to the top floor, but there is no option to switch floors like there should be for a 2 story building, so I have no way to get to the 2nd floor. Is this an issue with the new update, or maybe because I haven’t done the multi-level quest yet? Didn’t think that would matter in the mall, but maybe it is preventing me from accessing 2nd floors.

    • 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 button should appear now.

  6. I recently just finished this quest and finished it well in time, with a day or two to spare, but the icon i cant find the icon for the burger stand in order to build it. There is also no more upstairs button at the side of the screen…
    Do i need to clean the entrance first or…?

    • No you don’t, 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 button should appear now.

  7. i finished the sunset mall task on time and built pickle sauce, but there’s a glitch and every time i want to build mall area 2 it says pickle sauce is still under construction, and now i can’t build other small things like stables, the show jumping gate, etc. how do i fix it

  8. Sims won’t let me build anything else because it says pickle sauce is already under construction but it seems to never end. It’s been under construction for a long time now. it’s just an empty space. What can I do? I’m missing out on building other buildings.

  9. Hi, love your blog! I understand you’ve answered the same response to almost every comment, but I finished the quest on time, and I still can’t see the burger bar any where. There’s no arrows anywhere in the screen! I think most of the people who asked have the same problem. And yes I finished the multi story quest also

    • 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 button should appear now.

  10. I have the same problem everyone. There is no button to click on to build the burger bar. (No upstairs button and no burger symbol in gray.)

    • 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 button should appear now.

  11. To everyone who finished the mall quest in time but are having a problem building the burger bar:

    Have a sim who isn’t busy come to the mall. Click on a bench on the left side upstairs as if you want that sim to “rest from shopping.” The button should appear now.

  12. Hey! I haven’t started the quest yet, I just started building the mall, but how many stores in total do you have?
    Thanks !

  13. I did most of the quest and will finish it tomorrow. with 3 days to spare. How much did the Pickle Sauce burger bar cost for you? I need an estimate since I need to save a lot of money to add a second story to my Latin Villa and add a firepole (only one that’ll fit in a good location) as well as get around to building the first part of the second floor of the restaurant. Thanks!

  14. Your awesome. If it wasn’t for your site I wouldn’t have made it as far as I have. That pickle bar had me stumped also till I read your posts! Thank you!

  15. im so glad i decided to google this today…had the task completed in 6 days like almost 2wks ago…thought i got cheated bein that theres so many glitches in the game for android players…thank you!

  16. Hi!! Thanks for posting this!!! I used several of your other posts to help me with Sims. It’s really helpful thanks!

  17. I haven’t started the Sunset Mall quest yet. Is there a time limit for the Catwalk Model hobby that follows the Sunset Mall quest? Time limited hobbies get me really stressed and I’m afraid to start the Sunset Mall quest and have no time to stop to catch my breath before starting the Catwalk Model hobby.

    And thanks for this amazing blog, it helped me get through many quests easily!

  18. I just started playing sims, and my 1st quest for outdoor event was to build the deer spring falls, but to be able to build it I had to finish a dance to remember quest, and once this was finished the new requirment to build the spring fall was to make the sunset mall quest… Now I’m working to finish the mall quest but I wont be able to build and finish the spring fall quest in time. So no sleeping bag reward for me :(( I dont understand why they give me a quest that’s not possible to do in time..

    • you shouldn’t have needed to complete the sunset mall quest first, you just can’t do discovery quests at the same time as each other, you can complete them in any order you like.
      But don’t worry I’m sure they will bring the event back again one day!

  19. I just finished the quest with 4 days left and I am currently building the burger bar. Do you think I should next build the excalator to the top of the mall or build area 2? Also, I love your website. Its really helpfull; thanks!

  20. Hi there…love your website so helpful. Just a quick question. Do you know why the weather pole shows up during the end of this quest inside the mall? Your page has no info on it so I’m just curious. I think I might see it in a couple screen shots and its currently in my mall.

  21. thank you so much! i have been stuck for months on this and now i have the rest of the mall being constructed! becuz of one stupid thing i missed by not having a sim go upstairs to the far left bench.. geez.. i even facepalmed myself becuz it was something so simple that was keeping me from doing other quests! THANK YOU!!

  22. So I think I clicked on the quest a while ago, but I have been doing it this week… I can’t get the burger icon and I don’t know if there is any way I can get it… I already tried sitting on the benches

  23. Hey, I’m having trouble completing this quest…I’m stuck in “leave the mall”…I had my sim leave the mall but the quest won’t recognize it…you think it’s a glitch??

  24. I am doing the makeup challenge in the Sunset Mall & opened a salon near the makeup stand. When I built it, it opened makeup styles and some cute colorful pigtails hair styles. I purchased the makeup styles, but cannot find the pigtail hair styles ANYWHERE. Any advice?

  25. Hi, I was wondering how to add neighbors to my sims game? I see that people need neighbors as well, but I’m not sure what the names ate used for. Can you help me?

  26. Has anyone else noticed how the kid in the robot costume on the mall quest switches skin colour constantly?? Every time I zoom in to check my progress he/she is different lol

  27. Help please? I finished the mall quest on time, then it asked me if I wanted to start the next quest, don’t remember the name, but I accidentally clicked cancel, is there a way to get it back? Please and thank you

  28. I’m stuck in “leave the mall”…I had my sim leave the mall but the quest won’t recognize it. I have try sending a sim back to the mall and getting them to leave again, and restarting my device still nothing

  29. I can’t build the store in th Sunset Mall, it says my Stables are under construction. But they aren’t!! I’ve been there and nothing is blinking. I’ve uninstalled and reinstalled the game, nothing happens. Please help!

  30. I have just unlocked the he second part of the second floor of the mall (Memory Lane I think?) and have cleaned it and am even able to build all four stores and the escalator and photo booth. The fashion hunter hobbie spot still has a lock on it and is grayed out, but the only criteria is to clean the cinema court area. How do I unlock this hobbie?

  31. I’m a little confused. This quest is listed in the main quests, in between A Quest For Toddlers and All Going Swimmingly – but also listed under Discovery Quests. I hadn’t been playing very long when this quest popped up for me. At the time I didn’t know I could select “no” to discovery quests and start them later, so I built the mall/did the quest. My husband never got the quest for the mall, because he never built it. So now I’m confused on whether this is a Discovery Quest or Main Quest.

  32. I really want to build the mall but so far have not been able to. Every time I click on it, it says requirement: after current quest, but when quest is completed, there is a new quest and can’t be built until after that quest. I’m level 34 now. Can you tell me how much longer? Thank you.

    • You don’t need to complete discovery quests as soon as they appear, so next time it asks you if you want to start a new quest after completing a discovery quest (as you cannot complete more than one discovery quest at a time) say no and start building the mall.

  33. hello i recently had been able to do the sunset mall quest but i accidentally pressed cancel. is there any possible way that i can still do it?

  34. I am having a huge issue with part of this quest. My quest is to off the robot a prop. Your guide says you can offer any prop. I did the samuri armor. Says it will take 2 hours 40 mins. I com back when it’s supposed to be done and no pop up saying it’s been finished. I check on my sim at the mall and he is just standing there and my quest still says to offer a prop. I have done all 3 props twice! This is my 3rd try. It never completes. And I have no LP to quick finish.

      • I’m up to the part where you have to read the poster about the fashion show but I can’t get to that level. The bottom escalator to the burger area is locked, but the escalator from the burger bar to the second level is unlocked. And then the escalator to the juice bar is unlocked but the escalator from the juice bar to the 2nd floor is locked. Any ideas on how to fix this? Also, worth noting.. There are no lock buttons on the escalators. I have sent sim home and returned. Tried all suggestions in comments but nothing.

  35. I just finished the sunset mall quest and instantly started building the burger bar but my game crashed a few hours later. Now it says 11 hours until finished but it is at 0%. Is this a glitch?

  36. Hi, what requirements do you need to start this quest? Is it just level 12 and build the park or is it more? I haven’t got my iPad with me right now so I can’t check.

  37. I can’t get past ” have sim leave the mall” – tried with two sims, tried shutting down and restarting, etc. Any idea if this is a glitch or am I mid
    swing something?

    • Does using the home with the arrow button on the simtracker not complete this goal? Have you tried going to another place and using the whistle on the simtracker to bring those sims from the mall then go back to the mall to see if that works?

  38. I’m at the point where I have to suggest a prop and I can’t find my robot anywhere! Is it not at the mall or is something wrong with my game?
