The Sims Freeplay- Sporty Life Dreams List

This guide is to help you decide which life dream you want your sporty sim to have at each life stage, I would always go for the longest life dreams just as you don’t have to be on the game constantly but unless it states the option to choose you can pick any option on that object! If there is a life dream that you are unsure of how to complete it this guide also shows you what item to use and which option to select.

Please note: times may vary depending on the star rating an item has and I haven’t included how much the bar increases by each time as it depends on what level orb you are working towards.#

  1. Thank you! Super helpful. I’ve found the longer options for some of the personalities/life stages, but not all and a list is a great reference.

  2. To generate life orbs, esspecially the sporty, geek and entertain one, I would always create an adult sims directly, choose the do job option(eg scientist) and send them to work every day. After work, it is all about gardening. When become adult, I would choose for him to sleep or gardening. Whether it is the least time consuming, i dont know. However, you dont need to worry much about how long open the game once( The game is getting boring in this point). Also, it shall be the most effective with generating simoleons. Dont get what you want on life dream menu? Just tap not now and try again and again. It must appear

  3. Two minor corrections/additions:

    For the adults Relaxing Skate dream, you can actually do ANY of the skating options. They all count. I really like choosing this one, because it gives so much flexibility in terms of time. If I know I can check the game several times an hour, I choose the short option and collect trophies. If I’m going to be away, I choose the longer options. It’s one of the easiest dreams for this reason.

    For the elders dancing to stereo, if you have the cheapest stereo, the Kids option is 6 hours, not 5 hours. That makes it a little bit better for leaving the sims dancing overnight or while aphid are at school/work.

  4. Hi! When I chose “go diving” as a preteen life dream the bubble indicating you are fulfilling a life dream was not available at the swim center diving boards or at the diving boards at my houses. I am wondering if “go diving” means diving at the beach instead of diving in a pool. Do you have any insight?

  5. Hi, I have “sporty Preteen” whose dream is “I want go diving! I want to get as good as Jacques Simsteau so one day I can dive 20000 leagues under the Simsea!” I don’t really know what to do. When I’m at diving center there is no life dream icon on any of diving options.

  6. I was just wondering if you knew if you have 2 sims that you select “talk about sports” and have them talk to each other, would it only count towards one of them or both of them?

  7. I’m sorry if someone has said this before, but you can also practice figure skating at home, as long as you have a pool and a weather machine. Just make it snow and your frozen pool turns into an ice rink :]

  8. on a rocking horse the only options that come up are Rock Out, Play Cowboys, and Rescue Damsel. what would Race be?
