The Sims Freeplay- Life Dreams and Legacies FAQs

These are the most common questions I get asked about Life Dreams and Legacies.

Once you begin the life dreams and legacies quest your sims will start to age automatically. You can also give your sims personalities, to work towards life dreams, if your sim completes all their life dreams in each stage of their life when they die they will leave an orb behind, orbs are used to pause a sims life or build new places.

FROM NOW ON ALL OF YOUR SIMS WILL AGE AUTOMATICALLY AND DIE

Why can’t I give my sims a personality?

You need to complete the life dreams and legacies quest before you can give personalities to your sims.

If I don’t give my sim a personality or life dream will they still age?

Yes they will regardless.

How long does a sim last in each stage before they automatically age?

  • Baby- 5 days
  • Toddler- 7 days
  • Preteen- 8 days
  • Teen- 12 days
  • Adult- 24 days
  • Senior- 9 days

A sim will only age when you are on the game and these times do not mean your sim will age after its been that many days, they need to do the amount of actions that add up to that many days first.

Why can’t I give my sim a life dream?

Complete the life dreams and legacies quest then give your sim a personality to be able to give them a life dream.

How do I give my sim a personality?

In create a sim or if you want to give an existing sim a personality by selecting the browse clothes option on a wardrobe, personality is the first tab.

giving an existing sim a personality

How do I give my sim a life dream?

Once they have a personality you need to go to the life dreams menu, find that sim and click choose a life dream:

3 options will appear, if you don’t like any of those options click not now and try again:

Where is the life dreams tab?

On the sim information panel (which shows your sims jobs, hobbies and relationships) one of the tabs now shows your sims life dreams.

Can I change my sims personality?

Yes you can, on the life dreams menu, click on the head with the arrows around it as shown in the picture below, this will take you back to the personality menu for you to pick a different one.

NOTE: all progress towards that life dream will be lost and you will need to start again from 0%

Can I change my sims life dream?

You can but only by changing the sims personality as explained above, you need to change it to a different personality then back again to be able to choose a new life dream.

NOTE: all progress towards that life dream will be lost and you will need to start again from 0%

What happens if I change the personality of my sim who I previously gave a life orb to? Do I lose that life orb or does it go to my inventory?

You won’t lose the orb, you will find it on the ground next to the sim whose personality you changed so you can place it back in your inventory.

Will life dreams take up all my sims time?

No, they shouldn’t do.

Are relationships worthwhile when trying to complete life dreams?

Honestly no, getting married just for your sims to pass on and die isn’t really worth the 10LPs it costs you for the best ring! Personally I don’t bother about relationships while I am trying to build all the places that require orbs, once I have, I can start earning platinum orbs to build my town up with sims who cannot age and then they can have relationships and families again.

What are the geeky life dreams?

You can find a list of geeky life dreams here

What are the sporty life dreams?

You can find a list of sporty life dreams here

What are the entertainer life dreams?

You can find a list of entertainer life dreams here

What are the pet fanatic life dreams?

You can find a list of pet fanatic life dreams here

Does completing tasks with lower star rated items (action takes longer) give you more life dream points to complete life dreams faster than higher star rated items?

No, you get the same amount of life dreams points regardless of the star rating the item has.

When choosing a life dream, is it better to choose longer tasks or shorter ones?

I always go for the longer ones, as I cannot play all day to put each sim on their life dream task several times but it is personal preference, I find it easier doing longer tasks but you may be able to play on the game for longer each day so you prefer shorter tasks.

Can I fulfil a sims life dreams in one life stage?

If you start life as a toddler don’t expect to have the life dream completed by the time you reach your preteen years, you can only do so much at each stage before you have to age up to complete the next section of the bar.

Unless you give a senior sim a personality then they will have to complete one life dream to fill up the whole bar in only that stage.

What is this bar they have to fill up and how much can they fill up at each stage?

On the life dreams menu underneath where you choose and see their life dream there is a bar that has lines on it, the lines each represent a life stage:

As you complete a sims life dream the bar will fill up. The bar used to fill up to the line of that life stage but now it fills up fully for each life stage when you have completed their life dream:


The bar will then go back down when you age your sim, so my sim has become a senior so he only has the last section of the bar to fill before he can earn his bronze orb:


If a sim doesn’t complete a life dream at one stage can they catch up on the next?

Yes! Don’t worry if you don’t manage to complete your toddlers life dream, there is plenty of time left to catch up.

When you start working towards a life dream as an adult sim you will have to complete each stage you missed previously (so you will have to fill up the whole bar to the fourth line, it seems like it takes longer but I find it much easier)

Does completing life dreams at the earlier stages count towards the overall amount needed to complete the orb?

Yes, as mentioned above, it definitely does!

At which life stage is it best to start earning an orb?

Everyone has a different opinion on this, I personally prefer adding new adults to empty houses and start working towards a life dream from that stage, the downside to this is they don’t have much time left to do anything other than their life dream (which is why I choose career life dreams when possible) but its cheaper than adding a new baby each time and it means they don’t have to have 5 different life dreams throughout their life, they will just have 2.

NOTE: a baby cannot have a life dream

If a sim started working towards a life dream as an adult, would it take more time to complete their life dream than a sim that had been working on earning an orb since they were a toddler?

Yes it would take more time because they are having to fill the bar right from the start.

Can I get orbs without killing off my sims?

Yes, but you can only use these orbs to build places you cannot give them to another sim to upgrade them until your sim passes on

NOTE: they have to be a senior in order to have earned an orb to use

To get an orb off a sim to build a place:

  1. All sims that have the orbs you require to build a place need to have completed their life dreams and earned an orb
  2. Find the place you want to build and click build
  3. Select the orb you want to use, if a sim has it it will say ‘[sims name] has a life orb’ click on this
  4. A pop up warning will appear, click yes to use the orb or click no to cancel
  5. Repeat steps 3 and 4 for all orbs you need
  6. Once you have all the orbs you need you can click on the green tick to build
  7. Your sim will then be able to choose a new life dream and work towards a new bronze orb if they have the time

What places can I build with orbs?

  • Arcade
    • 1 Bronze Geeky Orb
    • 1 Silver Geeky Orb

Complete geeky life dreams by giving your sim the geeky personality to earn these orbs

  • Beach
    • 2 Bronze Sporty Orbs
    • 2 Silver Sporty Orbs

Complete sporty life dreams by giving your sim the sporty personality to earn these orbs

  • Carnival
    • 5 Bronze Entertainer Orbs
    • 2 Silver Entertainer Orbs

Complete entertainer life dreams by giving your sim the entertainer personality to earn these orbs

  • Pet Park
    • 2 Bronze Animal Fanatic Orbs
    • 4 Silver Animal Fanatic Orbs

Complete animal fanatic life dreams by giving your sim the animal fanatic personality to earn these orbs

NOTE: You will also need orbs to build areas inside each place, the amount of orbs needed can be found in this post

Do I need to use simoleons or LPs to build these places as well as orbs?

No you don’t, if you don’t have enough orbs though you can use LPs instead but you will need a lot of LPs!

What is the age controller and how does it work?

The age controller is the tab that allows you to age a sim early, reverse a sim to the beginning of that stage or pause a sims life.

1-reverses or advances a sims age:

  • a- reverse
  • b-advance

2-pauses a sim at that life stage

Keep reading for an explanation on each of these

Does it cost LPs to age a sim?

Only if they haven’t completed their life dream for that stage yet or they aren’t ready to age. Once their timer turns red or they have completed their life dream at that stage you can age them for free.

How do I pause my sims life?

Pausing a sims life is explained in detail in this post so view that for more information and pictures but I will explain the basics here:

  1. You need to go to the age controller, find the sim you want to pause and click on the pause button
  2. A life orb allocation pop up will appear, select the orb you want, then click the green tick
  3. Click yes to confirm you want to pause ageing

Your sim is now paused!

NOTE: the sim you are pausing does not have to have the same personality as the orb you are using to pause them, they don’t even need a personality to pause them and they can be any age!

How long do different orbs pause a sims life for?

  • Bronze- 3 days
  • Silver- 7 days
  • Gold- 16 days
  • Platinum- paused forever (its definitely worth getting a platinum orb to pause your favourite sims)

Do I need an orb for each sim I want to pause or can I pause them all with one?

You need an orb for each sim, so if you had 20 sims and you wanted to pause them all forever you would need 20 platinum orbs (scroll down for how to earn platinum orbs)

If I pause a sim can I change my mind and make them age again?

Yes you can, go back into the age controller and select the play button (where the pause button was) then on the life orb allocation pop up select resume ageing:

NOTE: you will lose the orb you used if you make them start ageing again

Can I make a paused sim reach the next life stage without turning ageing back on?

Yes you can, just click on the advance ageing button on the age controller:

Keep reading for information on how to advance a sim to the next stage

How does reversing a sims age work?

On the age controller you can choose to reverse a sim back to the beginning of that life stage, this is useful if you want to keep your sim alive and at a certain age while you are trying to earn a platinum orb to pause them forever, it can also be used to give a sim longer to complete their life dream at that stage if they haven’t managed it yet.

It will cost you a certain amount of LPs if you choose to reverse them back to the beginning of that stage, the amount depends on how far along their timer is (the circles at the top of this picture represent how far along the timer is):

image

NOTE: Reversing will only reverse them back to the beginning of that life stage, you cannot go back a life stage; for example, you cannot make a preteen a toddler

How does advancing a sims age work?

On the age controller you can choose to advance a sim to their next life stage before their timer turns red:

You can age them early for free once they have completed their life dream for that stage which is useful if you want to earn orbs fairly quickly or if they are at the end of that stage. It will cost you 2LPs if you choose to age them early before they have completed their life dream for that stage or are ready to age.

If I have them plant after work, does that age them sooner?

Yes they will because they will be busier completing actions for longer.

When sims automatically age, what happens to their hobbies?

If a hobby is still available at the next stage of their life then they will keep their hobby, for example, a teen with the cooking hobby will still have the hobby when she becomes an adult and also when she becomes a senior.

If the hobby isn’t available at the next stage, for example, a toddler with the finger painting hobby would have to pick a new hobby when they become a preteen.

BUT if they reached the highest level in that hobby before ageing all the collectibles will still be unlocked so the next sim could complete the collection without having to reach the highest level. If they didn’t reach the highest level before ageing then a new sim would have to level up from level 1 to be able to complete the collection. This post explains hobbies in more details.

How long does it take to fulfil a life dream?

It depends on what the life dream is and what orb they are working towards, platinum orbs take a lot longer than bronze orbs!

How can I see how long my sim has left in that life stage?

Around their face on the simtracker there is a circle, the more actions they complete the more the green line will spread clockwise around the circle, when it reaches red you know that your sim will age soon:

Will my sims age when I’m not playing?

No, your sims will only age when you are on the game.

My sim has completed their life dream for that stage, can I age them before their timer is up?

Yes, you can advance them for free by clicking ‘advance age’ underneath their life dream on the life dream tab or by selecting ‘advance age’ on the age controller.

advancing age from the life dreams tab

Why didn’t my sim get an orb when they died?

If your sim didn’t complete their life dreams by the time they died then they will not leave behind an orb.

If I have gone from a silver life orb to a gold life orb, do I now have 2 life orbs, or do I only have one?

You only have one because you are upgrading the silver to a gold, so the silver orb becomes a gold orb.

How do I get a bronze orb?

  • To get a bronze orb you first need to give a sim a personality (the personality needs to be the same as you want the orb to be)
  • Then you can choose a life dream and work towards it
  • Once you have completed all life dreams for your sim and they pass on to the afterlife you will get the bronze orb to upgrade or use to build places

How do I get a silver orb?

  • To get a silver orb you need to upgrade a bronze orb (If you don’t have a bronze orb yet, follow the steps above)
  • Once you have your bronze orb you need to give it to a new sim (this is explained later in this post) In the wardrobe click on personalities and select the personality that is the same as the orb you need to upgrade
  • You can then select that bronze orb and choose a life dream and work towards it
  • Once you have completed all life dreams for your sim and they pass on to the afterlife you will get the silver orb to upgrade or use to build places

How do I get a gold orb?

  • To get a gold orb you need to upgrade a silver orb (If you don’t have a silver orb yet, follow the steps above)
  • Once you have your silver orb you need to give it to a new sim (this is explained later in this post) In the wardrobe click on personalities and select the personality that is the same as the orb you need to upgrade
  • You can then select that silver orb and choose a life dream and work towards it
  • Once you have completed all life dreams for your sim and they pass on to the afterlife you will get the gold orb to upgrade or use to build places

How do I get a platinum orb?

  • To get a platinum orb you need to upgrade a gold orb (If you don’t have a gold orb yet, follow the steps above)
  • Once you have your gold orb you need to give it to a new sim (this is explained later in this post) In the wardrobe click on personalities and select the personality that is the same as the orb you need to upgrade
  • You can then select that gold orb and choose a life dream and work towards it
  • Once you have completed all life dreams for your sim and they pass on to the afterlife you will get the platinum orb to pause sims or use to build places

NOTE: it takes 4 sims each completing their set of life dreams to earn a platinum orb

How do I give my sim an orb to upgrade?

You do this the same way you give a sim a personality but this time instead of just choosing the personality any stored orbs will be shown here, for example you can see from the picture below that I have 2 sporty orbs available:

If you click on the sporty personality you can then choose a bronze life orb which can be upgraded to a silver:

Or select no life orb to start earning a bronze:

How many times can you use an orb?

Orbs can only be used once.

I’ve paused my sim with a platinum orb but it wants me to pick a new life dream, would I be able to get the orb off that sim without them dying?

If you still need to build places then yes as you will be able to get the orb off the sim without them dying (how to do this is explained earlier in this post) but they will need to be paused as a senior to earn the orb and if you have built all the places there is no reason to give your paused sims a personality as you will not be able to give any orb they earn to another sim without passing on.

How do I store an orb?

You can do this two ways, once your sim passes on:

  1. Click on the orb and select add to inventory:

OR
2.Open buy mode, select the orb and click the inventory symbol on the orb to store it:

How much can I sell orbs for?

Platinum- S300,000
Gold- S180,000
Silver- S90,000
Bronze- S40,000

How can I sell an orb?

You can do this in two ways:

1.If your sim has just died and left the orb in their place, open buy mode, select the orb, then click on the red simoleon symbol to sell

OR

2.If you want to sell one that you have stored, again open buy mode, select the orb and it will appear like any other item you place in a house, from there you can click on the red simoleon symbol to sell it

Why is the grim reaper at a senior sims house?

The grim reaper shows up just before your senior sims timer is up, he is there to pass your sim on to the afterlife.

NOTE: he will stay there if another senior is also about to pass on

How do you send a sim to the afterlife?

Once their timer is up an exclamation mark will appear above their head, click on it, select yes when the pop up below appears:

20141119-164943.jpgThen the grim reaper will come and send them to the afterlife, leaving the orb (if they earned one) in their place.

20141119-164948.jpg

Does the game restart when all your sims die?

No, when a sim dies your sim count will go down so you can replace them by adding a new sim.

Should I complete the life dreams and legacies quest?

I get asked this question all the time and it is incredibly difficult to answer. I can’t really tell you what to do and my opinion may be completely different to yours. All I can say is; if you don’t want your sims to die, don’t complete this quest, you can always change your mind and do it later!

Can I just not complete the life dreams and legacies quest so my sims don’t die?

Yes, you could do that but you need to stay on the previous quest (in stitches quest)

What happens if I don’t complete the quest?

Nothing happens apart from your sims won’t age and you won’t be able to build the arcade, beach, carnival or pet park.

Can I still do discovery quests if I don’t do this one?

Yes you can, the life dreams and legacies quest is the last main quest, all discovery quests can be completed whatever stage of the game you are at, even if you are on a main quest. A list of discovery quests can be found here

I have just started the quest, why are my sims already ageing?

Your sims will start ageing as soon as you start this quest so that is why you need to stay on the previous quest if you don’t want your sims to die.

Should I give all my remaining sims life dreams once I complete the quest?

If you want to start working towards life orbs straight away then yes, there is no time limit to earning them but they will automatically age anyway, with or without a life dream.

Are there any ways I can stop my sims dying?

  1. Pause a sims life using a platinum orb as explained above
  2. Reverse a sim back to the start of that life stage using LPs, again as explained above
  3. If you have special sims that you don’t want to die but you are still working on getting a platinum orb you can just leave them not completing any action because as long as they aren’t doing anything they will not age, then when you are ready to pause them they can start doing things again, such as gardening or going to work.

Is hibernating doing something?

Yes any action in the game will cause your sims to age, do not waste hours of their life hibernating if you don’t need to.

Are there any ways to age a sim quicker?

  1. Once your sim has completed their life dreams for that stage you can advance them to the next stage for free in the age controller or from the life dreams tab, as explained above
  2. You can have them do longer tasks to make them age faster
  3. You can also age them early from the age controller but this will cost you 2LPs if you haven’t completed their life dream for that stage yet, again this is explained above

Do I still need birthday cakes once I complete the quest?

No you don’t, you can if you want to bake a cake still but it is cheaper to advance a sims age using the method explained earlier in this post.

Can sims die at any other stage?

No, sims can only die once they complete their life stage as a senior.

What happens to your senior sims house if they die and no one else lives in the house? Does the house get deleted?

No, the house will remain it will just be empty, when you click on the house you can select the option to add a new adult sim, this is free or you can relocate an existing sim or family and that costs money.

What happens to pets when their owner passes on? Do they die?

Pets will remain in the house they live at, they can’t die. If you want to move a pet to another family click on the pet and select relocate.

Can I move a toddler to another house? His parents passed away and I want to use that house for a new family.

Yes you can, children can be adopted by an adult sim when both their parents have died (does not work if one parent is still alive) They need to be good friends to get the option to adopt them

20160404-184936.jpg

Do sims grieve when one of them dies?

No, your sims will no longer grieve when another one dies.

Can you get a sim back once they pass on?

No you can’t, they will be gone forever unfortunately.

Will a new sim be added automatically when one dies?

No, but your sim count will go down so you can add a new sim.

How much do babies cost once you finish this quest?

They now cost simoleons, the amount varies depending on how many sims you already have in your town.

If you can think of anymore questions about life dreams I haven’t answered please comment below and I will add them to the post.

Thanks for reading!

ONCE THE 14 DAYS ARE UP YOU GET TO KEEP THE ISLAND BUT YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO UNLOCK ANY MORE PLACES ON IT IF IT IS INCOMPLETE, YOU HAVE 7 DAYS ONCE THE EVENT IS OVER TO BUILD THE REMAINING PLACES BUT ALL THE MATERIALS TO BUILD THESE PLACES MUST BE COLLECTED BEFORE THE 14 DAY LIMIT IS UP AS YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO COLLECT ANYMORE DURING THE NEXT 7 DAYS

 

Plant a banana tree (find the banana tree in the events tab of buy mode- first one is free)
image

Collect fruit- 7 seconds (click on banana tree)

YOU COLLECTED ENOUGH BANANAS TO UNLOCK THE SEA VOYAGE BOAT (you may need to collect the bananas a few times to unlock the boat if it doesn’t happen after the first attempt)

Build the sea voyage ship- 3 seconds (found in sim town, between the standard and premium residences on the side with the bridge to the mysterious island)

Visit the tropical romance island (click on the boat) 
Unlock the ultimate relaxation pack- collect 2450 bananas from a banana tree to unlock the hidden hammock and coastal dining area (click on the island with the heart button in the corner of the game to see your progress)
image

TIP: you can have four banana trees so four sims can do this at once as it takes 4 hours 30 minutes each time. It costs SPs to speed up this action.

And remember to keep checking back as bonus bananas appear while they are collecting them (every 15 minutes it seems!) 
image

Use the event spin flower (buy the coin flower patch from the event tab and select the spin flower option)
image

Collect bonuses (as mentioned above you get bonuses from the banana trees every 15 minutes)

Continue collecting fruit- this is the last step but the event is not over, keep collecting fruit to unlock everything on the island!

That is all the personal progress prizes

How did I do it? I don’t have any neighbours right now so have been unable to earn social points that way but by completing the cooking hobby and earning LPs I used the social point plant (that costs 5LPs) to earn the SPs I needed to speed up the fruit collecting (mainly for bananas)

I worked out how many bananas I needed to build all the places then the rest I used on the spin flower to earn the constructor coins

There are many things about this event that I really think are unfair; the lack of constructor coins you can earn without wasting bananas or SPs on the spin plants (which have the worst odds of actually getting coins!), the requirement to speed up with loads of SPs (if you were using LPs it would be one for every hour but it is not like that for SPs!) and the length of time to collect the fruit- 4 hours 30 minutes each time when there is a limit on how many plants you can buy is completely ridiculous.


The Places on the Island- My Opinion

My top three: Coastal Dining, Wedding Coast Venue, Sea View Bungalow

The rest are in order of how much I like them:

  • Mermaid Reef
  • Hidden Hammock
  • Suncoast Bar- if there were more things to do at the bar I would like this more!
  • Beach Volleyball and Sun Bath Beach

Coin Flower Patch

I’ve been told that the mega spin flower which costs 15SPs gives better odds than the spin flower that costs bananas but I have to disagree (I don’t have neighbours anymore so I have to use the social point flower on the normal garden patch for 5LPs to make social points which I would rather use to speed up fruit collecting!)

On the mega spin flower there are more constructor coins rewards and they are larger amounts than the spin flower which costs 400 bananas but I wasted several SPs getting no coins so I will be sticking to the spin flower using all the bananas I have to spare to earn my constructor coins!


ONCE THE 14 DAYS ARE UP YOU GET TO KEEP THE ISLAND BUT YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO UNLOCK ANY MORE PLACES ON IT IF IT IS INCOMPLETE, YOU HAVE 7 DAYS ONCE THE EVENT IS OVER TO BUILD THE REMAINING PLACES BUT ALL THE MATERIALS TO BUILD THESE PLACES MUST BE COLLECTED BEFORE THE 14 DAY LIMIT IS UP AS YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO COLLECT ANYMORE DURING THE NEXT 7 DAYS

Thanks for reading!
