FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT THIS QUEST

please read before asking

How do I start this discovery quest?
Build deer spring falls 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 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

How do I send my sim to the campgrounds?
Go to the campgrounds and click on the whistle next to a sim who isn’t busy on the simtracker, this post explains more about the simtracker

I’m stuck on searching for clues, how do I do this?
You don’t need to search for clues, the answers are below

What is the answer to the rangers puzzle?
Plants

What is the answer to the tracking puzzle?
The barbecue

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

What do you use the set the bait?
Plants, fruits and nuts

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

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 survivalist hobby and campgrounds 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

  1. Did you ever get your tents etc built at the campsite? You were struggling last time I checked in here (ages ago …).

    The ranger is still hanging around my campsite – is she at yours as well? I can’t find anything else to build.

    • No because facebook suspended my account so I no longer have neighbours to get social points so I’m not likely ever going to finish building all the tents as one costs SPs
      Yes the ranger is still there, I think the ranger is just going to stay there forever

      • Why did Facebook suspend your account?? That is crazy! You really help so many of us with your blog. You probably keep a lot of people playing when they would normally give up. They should be paying you. I am so bummed for you that your best game got deleted. I am really going to sit down tomorrow and donate to your awesome blog.

      • They suspended it because I wasn’t using my real name but I have contacted them so many times and they just ignore me :/
        I’m glad it has helped!

  2. Hey I really like your blog. It helps me a lot!

  3. Why is the ranger still at my camp ground asking if I’ve built everything …. there is nothing left to build …… I’m so confused!

  4. Your blog is super helpful, thank. you for all your work.

  5. This blog always helps me get out of a jam.THANKYOU

  6. I have enough money to build either the Sunset Mall or the Campgrounds. Which one should I get? I love your blog – it’s so helpful and has saved me many times!

  7. Is it possible to finish this quest in 7 days? did you use any LPs?

  8. How can we get the sleepingbags if not completed in seven days? Is it possible?

  9. Hi! Useful blog indeed! But i am at the second to last task (talk with Clay) and i don’t find him at the camp? Where is he?

  10. been searching for clues for agesss now! helppp!

  11. Thanks for this helpful, amazing and incredible stuff that you post!! when I don’t have a clue whats going on in Freeplay i come and find the answer from you!!

  12. Hi, can you post the walkthrough to the puppy odyssey discovery quest?

  13. Yesterday in the park I saw one new discovery quest with orange house icon on the bridge with the fishing hobby.Which quest is that quest?

  14. FYI: I think there is a new version of this quest. 🙂 To solve the (assuming first) puzzle, I currently have three sims at the front gate of the park searching for clues in three spread piles of garbage. I’m on a third round now, with each of the three sims searching for five minutes per round.

  15. I have a question: how can i build the other side, if i didn t finish the quest?

  16. Hey I’m kind of stuck in this part of the quest it is continuing to say search for clues, I won’t go past that point at all. Help?

  17. Hi. I dont have enough sims to do a hobby each. Do you ‘recycle’ the sims? Say, i finished the puppy placemat hobby and got all the items, next is lps. shall I then use him to do new quests and sacrifice his puppy placemat hobby at the highest level? i dont have anyone else doing that hobby, but for now i do not need it.

    im just afraid i might need something for a sudden quest etc. i have 5 cooking hobby sim and 4 fashion designer sim, 4 carpentry (because quest needed them) the other hobbies only 1 sim ea. should i recycle those i x use anymore?

  19. Hi there, I absolutely adore your blog it has helped me with this game a bunch of times!
    I know you put an awful lot of time into it and would like to thank you for all of your hard work. ☺

    I have just completed the quest up to the point where the gate lock is now green and the quest is not showing up as active anymore. I prefer not to start the survivalist hobby until I have some more time to work on it. The hobby hasn’t started and doesn’t show up in the hobby list. Do you think it is safe for me to leave it? Like there’s wouldn’t be some hidden time count down going on in the background would there?

  20. Exuse me I dont mean to be rude or anoying but do you have a urban furniture event post or a sleep wear event? Sorry for bothering you but your blogs are amazing ☺

  21. Do i need to complete all the survavilist badges before i can repair the bridge? Its all locked at my level 34.

  22. My Sim just finished watching the TV show for this quest, and I sent her to the park to talk to Ranger Clay (the next step). I tap Clay and she refuses to speak to him. No options come up when I tap him, but she waves her arms and puts up the “no” symbol. I thought maybe it was because she was hungry, sleepy, or otherwise “uninspired,” so I fed her, etc. Still nothing! I’m now convinced this is a glitch in the game…? Have you ever come across this? What do you suggest?

  23. Good day to you miss.. I just want to asked on what quest will appear after completing this Vacation guide to outdoor quest so that I can prepare myself? thanks in advance! 😉

  24. Hi!! Im on lvl 37 on a previous update: The Police station. And just recently, they announced that the outdoor event are coming soon. And all the requirements including building the deer spring falls and completing this vacationers guide to the outdoor quest, which I am not done. What should I do now? Can you help me?

  25. Hey! The Outdoors Event allocated me only 3 days, when its second subquest the Vacationer’s Guide is a 7 day event. That’s unfair! If the game had only given me forewarning, I would have opened the camp grounds weeks ago! I demand my time back!

  26. Hi! I am new to your blog and LOVING IT!! I was wondering if you could help-I am on the vacationers quest and at the “send sim to park to Follow new tracks” but can’t find any! Do you have suggestions? Thanks so much!

  27. Waah! I should have consulted your blog. I wasted time by answering fish, burger, then you tell me. I’ve learned my lesson. Thanks a heap for sharing this, you’re an angel! God bless you! ❤

  28. Hi! I search on google and i found this blog! OMG 2y ago 😂. But it helps me. Thankyouu😭💐.

  29. I have to make a fancy coffee at a neighbors Snow Park. Where is that at?
