The Sims Freeplay- A Christmas Carole: Christmas 2020 Quest

Early Access to Beta Provided by EA/ Firemonkeys (Presented by EA GameChangers)


THIS QUEST IS OVER

Christmas seems to be on track this year, will your sims get the chance to have a holiday instead? No chance! Join them for this 13 day quest from the 12th December! There are 13 sets of goals to complete in the 13 day time limit so there is a set of goals to complete each day, if you complete the quest in the time limit you win the amazing Albion Square template! Make sure you update your game to the 2020 Christmas update to be able to start this quest

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 (the time varies depending on how long you take) unless you are behind then you will move straight onto the next set once you have completed the previous. You can use social points to skip the daybreak but it is very expensive:

Watch my step by step walkthrough video of this quest here

TIP: there are lots of tasks that need to be done more than once, this year you can use LP to skip all these tasks or you can still use the maximum sims you can to complete the task but remember if you just use one sim you will run out of time (the amount of sims you need to complete an action will probably vary depending on the level you are on but the amounts shown in this post are the maximum)

Thirteenth Set: Albion Square

You will find Albion Square under the driveway homes tab on a standard or premium residence, the first one is free, after that the cost in simoleons depends on how many houses you have already built. You can add up to 4 cars to this house lot!

The other three car parking spaces need to be unlocked by purchasing with simoleons:

  • Additional Space One: S250,000
  • Additional Space Two: S750,000
  • Additional Space Three: S1,500,000

Once you purchase an additional space you will be able to add another car but you need to have more than one adult/senior sim living in this house to add more than one car otherwise it will just switch their car to the new one you have just brought. For example if you wanted 3 cars in this house you need 3 adult or senior sims living in this house.

Once unlocked you will be able to interact with all the surrounding areas too such as the Christmas tree, phone booth, sled in the park and be able to collect your daily reward from the snowy red mail box:

I really love this house template, I love the London theme and the fact that there are 3 townhouses in one really fits in with that. This still works like a normal house so you can only have 4 sims living here at one time.

You could always demolish this house and build one house in it’s spot if you would prefer.

The only difference between the standard and the premium is the back garden is bigger on the premium and there is a little park behind the houses. I don’t think the extra park is needed so I prefer this house on the standard residence.

The standard is 18×18 and the premium is 18×36 so you can only edit the house, you can’t edit the park area next to the house or across the road. On the premium the little park behind the houses is in the grid so you could replace that with another house if you wanted to:

As there are 3 different houses I have made a key below so I can show you the inside of each of the houses:

1

2

3

Watch my house tour here:

You also unlock:

Kitchen/Countertops- Cream Double Oven (S101,000)

Windows- White Oriel Window (S72,050)

Bay Windows- White Curtain Single (S700,000) and Double (S900,000)

Doors- Green Red Garland Quad (S145,000)

Fences- Ash Slats Corner (5SP) Quad (5SP) Double (5SP) and Single (5SP)

Sims can prepare roast turkey in the oven

The bay windows are amazing, the curtains can be opened and closed and you can even put items in them this year!

TIP: If you do want to move the bay window you need to remove the items inside it first as they aren’t technically in the room

Merry Christmas/ Happy Holidays Everyone!

    for the tasks that require multiple sims, can preteen/teen/senior sims complete the tasks as well as adults?
    Thank you 😊

  3. I hope that all will be well with you and that you are safe and have comfort. Over the years, I have relied on you to answer my questions about Sims Freeplay quests. Your website is brilliant. Thank you.

  4. Is it possible to move three families or individuals into the three townhouses? Or can just one family live in the building?

    • You can have up to 4 sims living here but they will be classed as the same household, if you want to create a new household to this house select add sim on the empty house options. Once this sim has been added you can make them be friends or romantic with another sim until you get the option to move them in.
