Frequently Asked Questions about Discovery Quests

Can I do discovery quests at the same time as a main quest?
Yes you can

Why can’t I do a discovery quest yet?
You cannot do more than one discovery quest at the same time, if you are currently on another one you will not be able to do this one until that one is completed

Do I have to do a discovery quest?
If you don’t start a discovery 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 a discovery quest yet, will it still be available when I want to do it?
Yes it will be, you can choose to start discovery quests whenever you like, there is no rush!

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 a quest 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

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

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 the 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. Hello there. thank you for this great blog. I just recently back playing the sims free play after 55 weeks on break and its really surprised me with so many new quests need to be done. I just have 1 question, if u dont mind answering, did the time limit will begin right after i click to build the Sorcerous Supplies store or after the building completed? I can see on the post that some quests you said “Build the xxxxx to access this quest”. All the building now needed more than 2 days to finish. I really want that dragon pet but im scared to start it in case i failed to complete it on time 😦 Anyway thanks again for your hard works on this blog xoxo

    • You’re welcome! The time limit for the quest will start once the building is complete (you will need to click on the building once it is constructed and the quest will begin)
      Hope that helps!

  2. Thanks weightlessmagic , but while doing the a dance to remember quest , I saw another discovery quest that when you find a puppy at the park starts . Did you do it ? I can’t find anything starts with a puppy . I don’t know the quest’s name . I think it starts at level 12 because when i was level 11 I didn’t find it .
    xoxo Soraya

  3. Hello, may I ask, there is a puppy at the park indicating another discovery quest and I do not know if I can handle it yet. I’m on Level 13, what is the quest all about?

  4. I am wondering if you have completed the puppy Odyssey quest. I am in the middle of it now, but my puppy is missing. I’ve tried restarting my device (and will try it again), but wondered if you had any advice about how to find my puppy back so I can complete the quest.

  5. Hi! I love your blogs. Helps out a lot. I’m doing the puppy quest, and I am on the part where I have to sit on the couch with the puppy, but first pick the puppy up. But there is a problem; I CAN’T FIND IT!! lol Do you know where it could be?

  6. I am currently on level 16 on the sims freeplay the puppy has been at the park for a few levels now everytime I click on it it says something along the lines that I’m in another quest to come back when I’m not so I did just that and same thing again how can I get the option to mess with the puppy

  7. Forgive me if this has been answered or covered elsewhere but…I built a second story on a house (finally). I can’t get anyone to talk to Bree at the park, even after the box pops up telling me to talk to her. Help? Please?

  8. What do I have to do to click on the puppy in the park? I currently am not doing any quest but it keeps saying “your Sim can’t help the puppy right now, because they are too busy with another quest.” How is this possible when I am not in any quest at this time????? HELP?????!??!!!

  9. Hi! I’m trying to figure out which discovery quest to do next. I’ve completed Nanny Knows Best and Peaceful Patios. I haven’t built most of the locations and I was wondering which was your favorite quest/unlocked your favorite options? If you have a recommendation that would be great!

  10. Hi thank you for your info it has been helpful. I am doing the nanny knows best quest but also the toddler quest am a bit concerned that I will finish the toddlers quest first. Will this be a problem. Thank you x

    • You’re welcome.
      No it isn’t a problem as you don’t have to age your toddler during the quest for toddlers (make sure you have a toddler before you start the in da clubhouse quest though!)

  11. Hello. I checked this list and got shocked because you have to finish the multi story renovations first before going to the lover dovey balconies. I haven’t finished that quest or I am just starting it right now. What to do?

    Thank you. You have a nice blog. I always finish the quest because of this. More power!

    • Unfortunately you do but it isn’t really possible to build a balcony without a second floor! There isn’t much you can do apart from complete all main quests in order until you can do that one, then you can do the balcony quest.
      You’re welcome and thanks!

  12. So if I’ve done all the major quest and ask but completion of the mall why is there a cruise ship docked that days I can not complete yet? And after I have completed that is that it? Is the game over?

    • That ship was part of an event that was around a while ago but that is not available to complete right now, they will probably bring it back again one day though.
      And no, the game is never over, they constantly update it with new quests to complete to keep it fresh.

  13. Hi. I can’t do the meet the nanny quest. She is in the park but I can’t click on her. I have a baby and only 3 other tasks – the road to fame, weekly task and social task. Do you know why I can’t start the nanny quest! Thanks.

  14. Hello again Ms. Amazing! Can I do a discovery quest and a time limited hobby event at the same time? Say for example, A Dance to Remember and the Spell Casting Hobby event. Especially since they are both time limited… Or is it better not to start a discovery quest while a time limited event is happening, particularly for those like me who still have few sims (8 or less)?

    • You can do discovery quests and time limited hobbies at the same time but as you are still early in the game I wouldn’t right now. You probably still have so many main quests to do which it is is best to make those your priority until you have the money and sims to be doing a lot of timed events/quests (when the main quests are over you might get a bit bored and want some of the other quests to do then!)
      But that is just my opinion if you want to do another discovery quest while completing a timed event now then you can!

  15. Thank you so much for this but there’s two things; when does the styles of time quest start? I did it on my old game but i’m not sure what level you have to be on…. And secondly for me the dance to remember quest started at level 11! Anyway thanks for this post, its really helpful.

    • The styles of time quest is not currently available, it is not a discovery quest, it is a limited time quest so it is only available for a certain amount of time when they add it to the game.

  16. Hi! I don’t know how it happened but when I finished Saved by the Spell I ended up with Pretty little Planters started. Sadly, I do not have the mall yet. Is there a way to reset it so I can do a discovery quest that I can actually accomplish?

  17. Hello, I havent build the sunset mall but this quest “Pretty Little Planters” already appear in my queue quest. So what can I do to build the sunset mall first and the other quest than? Please everyone help me. I can’t skip this quest
    Thank youu

  18. Hi thanks for all the posts , iam stuck in a limit quest and i have to get 200,000 now i have 80,000 is there anyway to get more simoleaons faster ? Beacuse if i do the cooking hobby so many times ill go to another and soo many quests now iam on level 25 and i have 11 quests to do , Q: is there anyway to get more simoleaons faster ?

  19. Hei! I love your blog really help me
    I wanna ask u if new discovery quest still pop up even I dont play it right now, like strange things in town and sims in the city?

  20. I am at level 52 and have completed all the discovery quests listed as well as all hobbies. Im just wondering what do i do now? Are there any more quests updated to the game by the creators or should I just go ahead and delete the game. I have unlimited money, LP’s, and Social points. My town is top notch from penthouses to every architech home they provide. I know there are things that still need to be unlocked because i have a second Sims game on my device that has items my other game doesn’t have but nothings popping up to allow me to unlock them. What do I do at this point? Did i beat the game or what???

  21. You are the greatest!! I use only your blog to play The Sims Freeplay. I also love that you are always saying not to use cheats in this game….keeping this game honest – very terrific and applause for you! EA must be very proud of you. I’m one of your biggest fans!! I look forward to your next update. Well done!

  22. Hello, I love your blog and There is a new discovery quest in the park, were you unlock Famous cloths i believe, I started a different discovery quest so i’m not able to do it. Can you post instructions on how to do this quest.🙂

  23. Hi i reached level 9 but i still can’t be romantic with another sim, its says love in the air quest is not complete, please help me what should I do??

  24. Do i have to complete a discovery quest to get accsess to another one? Becuz i am running out of time on the wizard quest, but i wanna do other discovery quests too some day, so will i have to try to complete it or will the quest come back at some point?

  25. I think one quest is missing. It’s called “A Bump-y Ride” and it starts after you build the Maternity Store (located between the recording studio and the real estate workplace). I’m saving money for it now so I barely know anything about it but I can send you the tasks once I finish. I have no idea which level it is available from though.
    Sorry for my bad English, it’s not my first language and I’m still learning.

  26. I have finished the Peaceful Patios quest and can’t find Bree to start Lovey Dovey Balconies. I thought she was in the park but it turns out she’s not. Where is she?

    • She should appear in the park 24 hours after you complete the patio quest as long as you have already completed the multi story renovations quest as you need a multi story house before you can add a balcony.

  27. Having a bit of a dilemma. I started the Basement of Kings quest recently, only to discover I needed a pet to complete it! I have not yet started/done the Puppy Odyssey quest, so I cannot get a pet. Will I never be able to do another discovery quest because of this? I can’t finish the basement one because I don’t have a pet, but I can’t unlock pets because you can only do one discovery quest at a time! Please help!

  28. Hey. I was doing a dance to remember quest and I couldn’t complete it in time. When I try to click on other quest like I try to do a bumpy ride quest, I can’t do it as it tells me to complete the other quest. Does it mean that if I couldn’t complete the quest (a dance to remember), I cannot proceed with other quest?

  29. I love your blog, it is very helpful for my sims journey! Though for these discovery quests do you have a recommendation of the order you should go because I reviewed some of them and I saw that they need certain stuff in order to complete? Thank you!

    • Thanks, I’m glad it helps! The order they are listed on here would probably be the best order but I would check each post before you begin in case there is something you are likely to need but don’t have yet.
