FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT THIS QUEST

please read before asking

How do I start this discovery quest?
Find Summer in the park to start this quest

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 the 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 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

Is it possible to complete this quest in the time limit?
Yes it is

Why do blue footprints appear when I try to use an item?
Blue footprints appear when your sim cannot access an item you want them to use, you need to either rotate the item or move an item that has been placed in front of it so they can use it.

I don’t understand the waiting tasks, can you explain?
The waiting tasks will only appear if you are ahead of where you need to be at that time so it means you are on track for finishing this quest on time. The time you need to wait for varies for everyone depending on how far ahead you are, if you are only an hour ahead then you will need to wait an hour, if you sped up a lot of tasks then you will have to wait longer. Once the waiting time is up the task will complete and you will continue with the quest. If you don’t get the goal to wait or it completes straight away this means you are behind in the quest but not having to wait allows you the chance to catch up!

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

What do I get if I complete this quest in the time limit?
New wallpaper and flooring

What happens if I don’t complete in the time limit, can I still finish this quest?
Yes you have to finish it to unlock the feature wall option before you can move onto the next quest

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 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 now that you have started it, if you don’t start it you don’t have to do it

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

  1. Kinda off topic, but since we’re talking about updates, have cats always been able to play with each other? As soon as I added a second cat to a family, they started to kiss and paw at each other! I didn’t know they could do that!

  2. I’m looking forward to this quest, it’s going to open up new design possibilities. Another wall I wish they would design are glass blocks, I love those walls oh and while I’m at it, interior windows. I would love to build something similar to the house in the movie 13 GHOSTS, obviously without magic spells all over the glass LOL but then that would be kind of a cool option for Halloween?

    • Yes this quest will be available from the 1st August, you don’t have to start it straight away though if you don’t want to as it is a discovery quest so it will be available until you want to start it

  3. Thank you for posting this. I always come here so that i know what to expect from these discovery quests. You are such a treasure for helping us. Thanks again. God bless you and happy simmimg!

  4. At first when I read your page I thought that we had to legit wait 24H everytime. but the 1st 24h is really you have to wait until Day 1 is done. and so on. from what I say from day 1.

  5. I am for some reason having an issue with reading the inferior design magazine? I can read all the other magazines except that one. Do you know how I can fix this issue?

  6. This is really off-topic, but how many simoleons does it cost to have a baby after the Life Dreams and Legacies quest? And do you remember if it costs simoleons to have a baby after the quest is complete, or in time for the last step of the quest (have a baby). I.E. if I start making the baby early it costs LP, but if I start making the baby when I get the goal does it cost Simoleons?

    Thank you SO much for this amazing blog! It makes it so much easier to complete quests in time and get the limited time prizes.

    • The amount of simoleons it costs varies depending on how many sims you already have in your town, the more sims you have the higher the price will be. I believe it costs simoleons once you complete the quest so it will still cost 3LP to have the baby in the final goal and if you start it early.
      You’re welcome!

  7. I’m on the phone 7 friends task, but it’s not registering that it’s complete, even though I have 7 Sims doing it at once. Am I doing something wrong?

  8. if you complete in the time limit, do you get any walls or floors for free or do you just unlock them and still have to buy them? btw ur blog is literally a life saver and it’s amazing. thank u so so muchhhh!

  9. I’m on the last part of the quest for the day, try to wake kewl at the park and my sim is not losing any time. It just keeps going back to 7 hours and fifteen minutes. Has anyone else encountered this issue. I want to finish quest but not excited to spend 7 lp on a glitch. 😑
    Thanks for all you do and any advice.

  10. Hi Good afternoon,I’m done adding new flooring but I’m not moving to the next step,what do I need to do?

  11. So if you do not complete this quest in the 7 days will I ever be able to unlock those wallpapers or will I lose the option forever?

  12. I was going along fine until I got to wake up Kewl which is 7 hours. I had my Sim doing it all day and it would not register. I cancelled the action and started over and still it would not register that time was passing. I finally had to spend the LP to move on to the next task. All that wasted time kills me!!!!! I was wondering if anyone else had that glitch.

  13. im stuck at trying to wake up kewl.. keep on back to the original time 7h15m even though i already completed it.. have any other people experience the same?

  14. This quest is not working right the time is not passing as they doing thier tasks but on the timer for the quest time is going by i have used all my gold points to do this quest since is not my fault can i be reimbursed

  15. Trying to complete this quest but can’t get a Sim to photograph the house. When I click on the X I get the “I can’t move there” signal and when I click on the plum bob I only get Makeover or Birthday. Help?

  16. Hi dear
    I have counted to a total of 257 hour to spend on this Quest that means tah you have to spend 10.7 days and you only ahve 7 days to spend. You also have to be awak for approximately 5 of the 10 days. Is this correct or not?

    • No this isn’t correct, the waiting time isn’t extra time, it is hard to explain but if you are on the first set of goals and you take less than 24 hours to complete then you then have to wait the rest of the 24 hours until you can move onto the next set, for example the first set takes you 20 hours to complete the wait time will be 4 hours but if you take longer than 24 hours to complete the first set you won’t get the goal to wait it will go straight onto the second set. I worked it out as 5 days 14 hours 23 minutes and 48 seconds

  17. I am having trouble placing the elegant coffee table. I have tried placing it in a few different houses but it doesn’t complete the quest item so I can’t move on to the next item…any thoughts?

  18. I completed the quest and i didn’t get any wallpaper or flooring just the ability to change the wall in different colour. Time was running out so i had skip the last 8 hours . Can someone help me

  19. hi, I just missed this quest because everytime I adding the floor, it won’t change, so I wasted my money and time and got nothing! they will be make this quest next year?

  20. Hi I really need help with this quest as I am stuck at the part where the sim is required to have a tantrum and then clean up the garbage. My sim can’t clean up the garbage, it basically just stands there and nothing happens. There is nothing blocking my sim from cleaning it up but nothing happens. I have been playing this game for 5 years and have saved up my LP so that I was ready to finish this quest but I can’t because of this glitch. This occurred after the 2018 holiday update. Pls help

  21. It won’t let me clean up the Rubbish from the lawn. Every time I click it, it just blinks back and my sim stays still

  22. Im stuck on “clean rubbish”, my app just upgraded to the latest version while I was doing this quest and now none of the sims are able to do the “clean rubbish” action, even if I tap on the exclamation point and everything… how do I report this? Im stuck and cant start another quest because of this bug…
