The Sims Freeplay- Hobbies: Survivalist

VACATIONERS GUIDE TO THE OUTDOORS QUEST – SURVIVALIST GEAR – TEEN, ADULT AND SENIOR SIMS – PRIZES: SUSPENSION BRIDGE, LOOKOUT POST, BIRD FEEDERS AND 3LPs

TIME LIMITED HOBBY – TIME: 7 DAYS – TIME LIMITED PRIZE: PICNIC BASKET

Once you complete the Vacationers Guide to the Outdoors Quest and clear the area (check out my guide to the campgrounds post for more information) the 7 day time limit will then start straight away, your teen, adult or senior sim needs to complete this hobby in the time limit to unlock the picnic basket at the campground:

Your teen, adult or senior sim needs to click on the survivalist gear at the campgrounds and select:

  • Explore- 2 hours 30 minutes

image

TIP: only one sim can complete this hobby at a time, you can send another sim to a neighbours town to complete this hobby (if they have unlocked the campgrounds!)

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

The table below shows the level up percentage:

This may change in future updates

 LEVEL Explore
1-2 50%
2-3 37%
3-4 25%
4-5 12%
5-6 6%

For example you would need to explore 17 times to reach level 6 from level 5

The next table shows you for each level what survivalist 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 City Dweller Water Collection and Food Gathering are unlocked in the hobby collection
2 Weekend Camper Medicinal Herbs and Tinder are now unlocked in the hobby collection 250XP
3 Decent Explorer Kindling and Fuel Wood are now unlocked in the hobby collection 500XP
4 Off Road Hiker Animals and Snakes are now unlocked in the hobby collection S750
5 Trailblazer Insects and Compass Navigation are now unlocked in the hobby collection 10,000 Town Value
6 Wilderness Maven Map Navigation and Star Navigation 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

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 survivalist collection is shown below, once you complete the collection you need to click ‘start a new collection’ 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):

The first time 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 picnic basket, this can be found at the picnic area at the campgrounds, the option is have a picnic- 10 minutes and two sims can do this at one time

The rewards for completing this collection are the suspension bridge, lookout post and bird feeders and 3LPs:

  • The first time you complete the collection you unlock the suspension bridge, lookout post and bird feeders  (even if you do not manage to complete the hobby in the time limit)

Build the suspension bridge to unlock the next area of the campground to clean up and then you can start the Storyteller Hobby!
