The Sims Freeplay- Outdoor Event


The outdoor event to unlock new outdoor items is back for 10 days!  I am so glad this event is back! I have been waiting to be able to complete this one again for so long! You need to complete the survivalist hobby 7 times within the 10 days time limit to unlock all 7 outdoor packs. You get a new outdoor pack at random each time you complete it.

You need to have built the Campgrounds and completed the Vacationers Guide to the Outdoors Quest so you can do the survivalist hobby (I really wouldn’t bother trying to complete if you haven’t even built the campgrounds yet as the event time limit will be over before you can start)

If you completed this event before you will not get it again this time. If you got some of the packs last time, you will only need to find the ones you have left to unlock this time, for example, if you unlocked 5 packs last time you will have to complete the survivalist hobby collection 2 more times this time to complete this event.

If you haven’t done the Survivalist hobby yet you will find the details here


You need to firstly accept this quest, it will remove the badges you have already created from the collection so you don’t get a head start.

If you say no you can start it from the active tasks tab but you won’t get extra time if you start this late!



-have more than one sim working on it if you can! You can only have one sim completing the hobby at your campgrounds but you can send a sim to a neighbours to try and complete it faster

-if you are not at level 6 yet it may take you longer to find all badges, speed up with LP if possible (wait for the timer to reach 1 hour 59 minutes and you will only need to use 1LP instead of 2!)

-the cooking hobby is great for earning LP to speed up timed events, this post explains this in more details 

-remember to click start new collection at the top of the survivalist hobby collections list once you have got all the badges to be able to complete the collection again,  this post explains how to do that if you are unsure

-most importantly: just keep going! I know it’s annoying when you get the same one constantly but you will eventually get the ones you need.

  1. I’m so frustrated with this quest… With 8 days left (getting close to 7 days), I haven’t got a pack yet…not 1! I’m using LPs to shorten the wait time, but I can’t get 1 on the very last row & it’s 12 LPs for a lucky spin (for me) in that row. I’ve only had 1 Sim doing this hobby but I finally found a neighbor who’s got a survivalist pack, so now I’ve got 2 doing this. Ugh…

  2. 2 sims doing this and I’ve unlocked 2 packs with less than 2 days left. /: One of the most annoying events I’ve done! Luckily the prizes aren’t anything to get too excited about. How has your progress been?

  3. I like the prizes but this one is really tedious to complete even with using LP to speed it up. I much prefer the fashion, fitness and baking ones that you can assign a crew of ten sims to do it. The ones that take too long or where you can only assign one or two sims are excruciating. Love those tents and outdoor lights though!

  4. How long have you been waiting for it to come back?! I’m unfortunately not going to complete it in time. 😦 didn’t realize I could send other sims.
