152 Comments

Early Access to Beta Provided by EA/Firemonkeys


THIS QUEST HAS BEGUN!


This is the Christmas 2017 Quest, I am so glad this year it is Christmas themed and a quest again as last year was a community event that had nothing to do with this time of year! This quest has now started, update your game to the Christmas update now to begin!

There are 13 sets of goals to complete and the time limit is 13 days so there is a set of goals to complete every day, if you complete the quest in the time limit you will unlock the stunning Snow Chalet!

You have to wait between completing each set so you complete one set per day, after completing a set you have to wait for a certain amount of time before being able to continue with the quest unless you are behind.

I'm a 22 year old from England who is passionate about being creative, I would like to say I'm good with words but I'm really not! Hopefully you will find my blogs helpful and entertaining! Enjoy! x

152 thoughts on “The Sims Freeplay- Christmas 2017 Quest: Snow Problem

  1. Thanks for this post! But I think it’s really unfair that almost all the furniture & stuff cost LP’s
    & SP’s

  2. omg the one thing you didn’t address…WHERE ARE THE CHRISTMAS LIGHTS????????? May be a glitch on my end but they are not in the featured section of the store.

  3. I also noticed that the chalet chandeliers are so long they reach the floor of a normal house! They work for the Chalet as there is an indoor balcony which means there is nothing between the first and second floor, but they don’t work in regular houses… ):

    • Yes I noticed that too, the look more like a decorative sculpture in a normal house which I sort of like! Hopefully one day they will make it possible to build other houses with the indoor balcony on the game so we can use them properly!

  4. How do I hang the chandelier without It touching the floor. I like how the snow chalet has a balcony inside and the living room is larger in height. How can I create a room similar so my chandelier will hang properly.

  5. Do you prefer the snow chalet on the standard lot or the premium lot? Because I i am starting to run out of premium lots but because it is a special lot with the landscape and all, does it look better in the premium lot?

    • There isn’t a lot of difference with the snow chalet on both lots, the only difference is on the premium there is a bigger decking outside, the interior is exactly the same so I would say build it on the standard and save your premium ones.

  6. When I get to the persuade grouch option I believe in the seventh set, do I do both 50 minute options and the 5 hour greed option? Then afterwards do the 12hour 30min. I just want to make sure of what to do, so I don’t waste precious time. Thank you and sorry to bother you.

    >

  7. Why is the chandelier hanging all the way to the floor?

    • Because the chandelier is made for the chalet so it is hanging between two floors, in a normal house it only has one floor so it touches the ground. Hopefully one day they will make it possible to build other houses with the indoor balcony on the game so we can use them properly!

  8. how do you get sims to ARGUE?

  9. Here’s a new type of question. Can you skip over the waiting period? That’s way too many hours. Looks tight to finish. I use my timer for when something is done but I’m not exactly a morning person. Haha.

  10. I finally got the chandelier today.. and i try to put it in one of my sims house.. and it’s so huge.. it even touched the floor 😂😂😂

    Guess i need to wait till i unlock the snow chalet then.. 😢

    • Yes I noticed that too, the look more like a decorative sculpture in a normal house which I sort of like! Hopefully one day they will make it possible to build other houses with the indoor balcony on the game so we can use them properly!

  11. Hi everyone I have a sort of a problem it says that I need to wait 7 days to go to the next task but unfortunately I only have 8 days left in the actual Christmas Quest what do I supposed to do because I really want that house

  12. I noticed the chandeliers are as tall as the rooms are. Do you have any tips on how to use them? Or is there a way to build a house like the chalet, with a room twice the regular height like a loft?

    • Yes I noticed that too, the look more like a decorative sculpture in a normal house which I sort of like! Unfortunately we cannot build a house like the chalet yet but hopefully one day they will make it possible to build other houses with the indoor balcony on the game so we can use them properly!

  13. Hi! I was wondering about the spacing of the chandeliers. I just finished that day, but the chandelier is from floor to ceiling when I try to put it in another one of my homes, but sims can walk through it. It that supposed to happen? Do you think its just because of the chandelier is designed for the chalet with its half floor, or is it a glitch they will fix?

    • The chandeliers touch the ground in a one story house as they are made for the two story room in the chalet. Unfortunately it isn’t possible to build a house like the chalet yet but hopefully one day they will make it possible to build other houses with the indoor balcony on the game so we can use the chandeliers properly!

  14. Is it me or is this new chandelier HUGE? It looks great in the chalet with its high ceiling but it looks awkward in a regular sized room.

    • Yes I noticed that too, the look more like a decorative sculpture in a normal house which I sort of like! Hopefully one day they will make it possible to build other houses with the indoor balcony on the game so we can use them properly!

  15. Hi! I just completed the sixth set, and I guess you did too, and have you noticed how weird are the lamps that come as a prize? They almost touch the floor and they seem to only work on the chalet that has that living room with double height ceilings. Do you know if is there any way to do that same thing on other houses so this lamp can be used? Maybe that’s a new feature? Because otherwise the lamps are just useless which is strange…

    Thanks and happy christmas!

    • Yes I noticed that too, the look more like a decorative sculpture in a normal house which I sort of like! Unfortunately we cannot build a house like the chalet yet but hopefully one day they will make it possible to build other houses with the indoor balcony on the game so we can use them properly!
      Merry Christmas!

  16. Is there going to be a way or is there already a way to build your own chalet?

    • Unfortunately it isn’t possible to build a house like the chalet yet but hopefully one day they will make it possible to build other houses with the indoor balcony on the game so we can use the chandeliers properly!

  17. I just won the chandeliers and they are so big they come all the way to the floor. Do you think they are going to give us rooms that we can make into to levels like in the chalet? If they don’t we won’t have any place that those will fit.

    • Unfortunately it isn’t possible to build a house like the chalet yet but hopefully one day they will make it possible to build other houses with the indoor balcony on the game so we can use the chandeliers properly!

  18. I am trying to build a house using the chandelier, however it seem like it is better used in a two story with high ceilings. Any tip on building a two story with high ceilings like the one built and designed in the chalet?

    • Unfortunately it isn’t possible to build a house like the chalet yet but hopefully one day they will make it possible to build other houses with the indoor balcony on the game so we can use the chandeliers properly!

  19. Hi! This may seem dumb, but is there a way to make a house like the chalet? Like how the second floor looks over the first floor and it’s open. It’s super cool and I’ve never seen a house like that, just making sure it’s just the chalet house is like that? And also, when I put the chandelier in one of my houses that’s just a 1 story, it’s on the floor for some reason? As if it’s way to big for the area, it’s not really a chandelier more of a huge light fixture in the middle of the room lol. Is that just a glitch or?
    Thank you!

    • The chandeliers touch the ground in a one story house as they are made for the two story room in the chalet. Unfortunately it isn’t possible to build a house like the chalet yet but hopefully one day they will make it possible to build other houses with the indoor balcony on the game so we can use the chandeliers properly!
