The Sims Freeplay- How to Add Exterior Balcony Stairs and Changing the Stairs Paving

Early Access to Beta Provided by EA/ Firemonkeys


Once you complete the Love and Treasure Quest you can build a house on the private island and use the exterior balcony stairs we unlock, this post walks you through how to add the exterior balcony stairs and also how to change the stairs paving to be the same as the paving on your balcony

1.You firstly need a balcony, if you haven’t already build one this post may help

Please note: you need to have completed the DIY Homes: Lovey-Dovey Balcony Quest before you can build balconies

2.Once you have built a balcony you will be able to add the exterior balcony stairs, you can find them in the exterior stairs tab, the villa stairs are currently the only ones available

3.When you click on this tab a pop up will appear saying that exterior stairs can only be used to connect to balconies

4.To place the exterior stairs you need to be on the ground floor and place them on the edge of the balcony, overhanging by one square width, if you try and place them on the same level the balcony is on it won’t let you

5.Click the green tick to place the stairs

If you change the balcony paving after placing the exterior stairs you may notice that the paving part on the stairs hasn’t changed with the rest of the balcony, these simple steps fix this:

1.Once you have changed the balcony paving click on the stairs and move them one square away from the balcony, you will notice that the paving on the top of the stairs will change to the paving on your balcony

2.The stairs can then be put back into place (see the steps above if you are having trouble placing them)

Click here to watch my speed build of the villa I created!

Completing this quest unlocks Exterior Balcony Stairs, read this post if you are unsure how to add them

Prize: Island Villa

Where can I find it? Click on the private island and click on the Island Villa to build it

Is it worth it? The island villa has a platform that you cannot build yourself but if you don’t manage to complete in the time don’t worry as you can still build a house on the private island using the private island empty lot

TIP: if you want to build your own but finished in the time limit, build the island villa anyway and store all the furniture as most of the villa items cost SPs and LPs

Cost? The first one is free, you can only build one house on the private island!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT THIS QUEST

please read before asking

Build the private island to begin 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

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

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

Do I have to do this quest?
If you don’t start building the private island you don’t have to do this quest at all but if you have already started building or started this quest 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 park?
Go to the park and click on the whistle next to a sim who isn’t busy on the simtracker, this post explains more about the simtracker

The private island villa

What happens if I don’t complete in the time limit, can I still finish this quest?

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 building the private island you don’t have to do this quest but once it is built the quest will begin

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

Frequently Asked Questions about the Private Island Villa:

  • What can I build on the Private Island? You can only build the empty private island lot or private island villa
  • I want to move the platform underneath the house or extend it! The platform cannot be deleted, extended or put in the inventory, you also cannot move it. To be able to edit something similar build the empty private island and add a balcony instead- this can be edited as shown in my video here
  • Can I put different stairs on the platform? The stairs that come with the villa are the only ones that are compatible with the platform, they can be moved, placed in your inventory but cannot be sold.
  • I cannot find the villa stairs after storing them, where are they? You can find them in the exterior stairs tab, check out my adding exterior stairs post if you are unsure how to place them
  • Can my sims walk on the platform? To walk on the platform there must be a balcony connected to the stairs. If you have not completed the DIY Homes: Lovey-Dovey Balconies Quest you will not be able to edit or delete the existing balcony.
  • Can I edit the platform? No the platform cannot be edited.
  • Can I build a basement on the island? Yes you can!

  • Can I put the platform in my inventory and use it on another home lot? No, it cannot be stored
  • Can I build a patio? Yes you can!
  • Can I move any of the items on the island such as the shower or towels? No you cannot as these are outside of the grid.
  • Does the private island have access to a car? No- I think we should be able to have a boat! That would be so cool!
