The Sims Freeplay- Guide to Sim Springs: Palm Promenade

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


The second neighbourhood in Sim Springs, Palm Promenade will be available from 13th June 2022 (with the You DOT You Update) the aim of this event is to complete daily tasks to renovate house lots in the new neighbourhood, you will need to have completed the first neighbourhood, Sandy Suburbs before you can move on to this one. There is no rush to begin this, it will be available in the future when you are ready to start.

In Palm Promenade there are 4 more house lots that need renovating:

Click on the links above to see the daily tasks and prizes for that lot

3 of the lots are house lots and the final lot, Barter Boardwalk is a community lot which once unlocked can still be customised like a normal house lot but your sims cannot live in them. You will also be able to place any item from the decoration section of buy mode in the community lot for free!

The lots need to be renovated in the order listed above, you cannot do up more than one lot at a time and the next won’t unlock until the previous one has been completed. The time limit to complete a house is 10 days (14 days for community lot) with tasks to complete each day in Sim Springs, similar to Downtown Developer Events if you don’t complete in the time limit you will have to pay to be able to move on but there are prizes available, the extra zesty prizes contains a house template that can be placed in Sim Springs or Simtown.

  • Once Sandy Suburbs is complete you will get the task to ‘Build the Road to Palm Promenade’ click on the orange Sim Springs symbol on the task or the bus stop in Simtown to go to Sim Springs:

  • You will see the roadblock sign, click this to get the option to build Palm Promenade:

  • Once built you can build the first house Cactus Cave, the timer will begin once this house has finished building:

  • You can skip the tutorial if you remember how Sim Springs events work or you can complete the tutorial if you need a recap:

Daily Tasks

  • Daily tasks must be completed at Sim Springs
  • You can only complete one task at a time, unless it is a build task (buy items etc) then you can complete at the same time as another task
  • You can complete these tasks in any order
  • The tasks you need to complete will have the Sim Springs symbol on them:

img_1755

  • More than one sim can be used for tasks that require multiple sims
  • You will need to buy some items such as trees, couches and computers to be able to complete tasks in Palm Promenade, if you have a 3 star item at a house in Simtown you can store it in your inventory and place it in Palm Promenade rather than buying a new one
  • Trash cannot be removed until you get the task to remove it
  • If you skip using SP on tasks that require you to clear up items it will remove those items
  • For tasks that require you to find items in objects if you use social points to quick complete you can find more
  • For tasks that require you to spend money you can buy items and then store them, this still counts TIP: I would save building rooms/ basements etc and placing flooring and wallpaper for when you need to spend money
  • For tasks that require you to place a certain number of items, if you store one of those items already in the house you will need to buy or replace it. For example, if you need to buy 6 windows and there are 3 there already but you store them all you will need to buy 6 windows rather than buying 3 more
  • Investment tasks are like mastery classes in SimChase, the more you spend, the less time it takes to complete TIP: check how much it would cost to skip with SP it may be cheaper or the same cost as the investment without the wait time
  • The lower the star rating, the longer a task will take to complete, I have included this in the tables below
  • If sims are inspired they will complete actions faster, I have also included these times in the tables below
  • You are aiming to complete the daily tasks within 24 hours, if you take too long you will have to pay to move on
  • For tasks that require more than 10 sims to complete at once you can spread them out throughout the houses you have unlocked in Palm Promenade, for example at Tall-Tree House you need to Take 12 Floral Photos of plants so you can have 10 sims at Tall-Tree House and the other 2 in Cactus Cave

If you complete day’s 6, 7, 8, 9 and 10 (each within 24 hours) you will unlock the Extra Zesty Prizes which contains the Cactus Cave house template, store signs, street clocks, lampposts and 1 Mystery Key:

Decorations: Antique Brown (S84,000) and Navy (8LP) Store Sign

Lighting: Black (S94,000) and Blue (9SP) Floral Lamppost

Outdoor Decorations: Black (S61,000) and Blue (6SP) Ornate Street Clock

This house template is available on a standard and a premium residence under the driveway homes tab (if you build it on the Cactus Cave lot in Sim Springs you will be building the standard as that lot is 18×18) the first one is free, after this it will cost simoleons depending on how many houses you have already built:

The premium has a pool and outhouse to the back of the main house:

I really like this house template, I love how they have a mezzanine to see into the basement from the ground floor, it makes it feel more open and less dark like most basements do. The only part I don’t like is the kitchen as it feels dark rather than following the light theme like the rest of the house

Watch my house tour of Cactus Cave here

Do I have to use the House Templates given during the event? No, you can keep the house you have been creating during the event but there is always the option to demolish that house and replace it with the template

Once you have completed the whole 10 day event you will unlock the Green (S102,500) and Tan (10SP) Elephant Ear Pots. You don’t have to complete this event in the time limit to unlock these prizes:

Once you have complete Cactus Cave you can take a break for up to 7 days before the next timer begins, to start Tall-Tree House you will need to click on the house lot to build it:

REWARD: S20,000, 8LP, 10SP and 2 Mystery Keys

If you complete day’s 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 and 10 (each within 24 hours) you will unlock the Extra Zesty Prizes which contains the Tall-Tree House template, display shelves, table dressings, hanging branch plants and 1 Mystery Key:

Decorations: Silver (S51,500) and Black (5LP) Table Dressings

Pine (S87,500) and Walnut (8SP) Hanging Branch Plants

Countertops: White (S99,000) and Oak (9LP) Open Display Shelves

White (S101,000) and Oak (10LP) Open Display Doubles

Lighting: Silver (S83,000) and Brass (8LP) Triple Leaf Pendants

This house template is available on a standard and a premium residence under the driveway homes tab (if you build it on the Tall-Tree House lot in Sim Springs you will be building the standard as that lot is 18×18) the first one is free, after this it will cost simoleons depending on how many houses you have already built:

The premium house is double the size of the standard. The standard looks like it is two apartments, one on the ground floor and one on the second and third floor whereas the premium has a separate building- the ground floor is attached but the second and third floor has 1-2 squares gap between the apartments. The premium makes this into four apartments, the two apartments on the premium are a slightly different layout. That explanation probably makes no sense but there is far too much going on on this house lot and it’s difficult to describe as it’s hard to see exactly how the layout works!

Do I have to use the House Templates given during the event? No, you can keep the house you have been creating during the event but there is always the option to demolish that house and replace it with the template

Watch my house tour of Tall-Tree House here

Once you have completed the whole 10 day event you will unlock the Black Telephone Box (15LP, Outdoor Decorations) and Red (S89,000) and Walnut (9LP) Tudor Entrance Doors. You don’t have to complete this event in the time limit to unlock these prizes:

Once you have complete Tall-Tree House you can take a break for up to 7 days before the next timer begins, to start Forest Flat you will need to click on the house lot to build it:

Windows: Oak (S89,000) and Walnut (8SP) Shop Doubles

Oak (S73,000) and Walnut (7LP) Shop Singles

Beige (S72,500) and Walnut (7SP) Colonial Recess

White Pine (S140,000) and Blue Walnut (14LP) Reception Desks

This house template is available on a standard and a premium residence under the driveway homes tab (if you build it on the Forest Flat lot in Sim Springs you will be building the standard as that lot is 18×18) the first one is free, after this it will cost simoleons depending on how many houses you have already built:

The ground floor of this house lot is a shop and the first floor is the apartment. On the premium residence the shop and apartment are twice the size they are on the standard:

I like this template, some of the extra zesty prizes have been put to good use to create this with a bright, natural theme that looks like a cute shop and seems perfect for Palm Promenade. My only criticism would be the kitchen, I need more countertops and they need to match! The counter nearest the door frame on the premium residence (fridge on the standard) is a different colour to the other one and the sink. The oven is also too dark, it doesn’t match the light wood in this build.

Watch my house tour of Forest Flat here

Do I have to use the House Templates given during the event? No, you can keep the house you have been creating during the event but there is always the option to demolish that house and replace it with the template

Once you have completed the whole 10 day event you will unlock the Rose Gold (9SP) and Gold (S89,500) Moroccan Stairs and Rose Gold (S5,800) and Gold (S6,000) Moroccan Railings. You don’t have to complete this event in the time limit to unlock these prizes:

Once you have complete Forest Flat you can take a break for up to 7 days before the next timer begins, to start Barter Boardwalk you will need to click on the house lot to build it:


Barter Boardwalk

This final lot is a community lot so your sims cannot live here but they can visit. Building works the same as a normal lot but one category in buy mode will be FREE, at Barter Boardwalk this is the decoration section:

The timer for Barter Boardwalk is 14 days rather than 10 days like the other 3 lots

If you complete day’s 6 to 14 (each within 24 hours) you will unlock the Extra Zesty Prizes which contains the Barter Boardwalk template, shop doors, stairs, railings, fences, gates and 1 Mystery Key:

Doors: Oak (S90,000) and Walnut (9LP) Store Singles

Oak (S110,000) and Walnut (S105,000) Store Doubles

Stairs: Black (S275,000) and Blue (27LP) Wire Stairs

Railings: Blue (S5,225) and Black (S5,350) Wire Railings

Fences: Black (S86,500) and Blue (8SP) Ornate Double Gates

Black (S54,000) and Blue (5SP) Ornate Single

Black (S55,000) and Blue (5LP) Ornate Double

Black (S56,000) and Blue (5SP) Ornate Quad

Black (S54,500) and Blue (5LP) Ornate Corner

This template is available on a standard and a premium residence under the driveway homes tab (if you build it on the Barter Boardwalk lot in Sim Springs you will be building the standard (even though it is actually a premium sized lot to begin with!) the first one is free, after this it will cost simoleons depending on how many houses you have already built. If you build it in Sim Springs it will on the community lot so your sims cannot live there but if you build in Simtown your sims will be able to live at the boardwalk as it will be a normal house lot.

Barter Boardwalk is a row of shops and at the end there is a park, on the premium residence there are more shops and a bigger park. Again I really like this template, between the shops on each side you have the lampposts and clocks and tables outside the cafe to create a realistic looking path.

The shops on one side are two story, the other side is a one story building but the coffee shop has a basement which is the storage area and toilets

Watch my tour of Barter Boardwalk here

Do I have to use the House Templates given during the event? No, you can keep the house you have been creating during the event but there is always the option to demolish that house and replace it with the template

Once you have completed the whole 10 day event you will unlock the Blue (S84,750) and Cream (8SP) Modular Succulents Corner, Blue (S89,500) and Cream (9SP) Modular Succulents and Blue (S99,500) and Teracotta (10LP) Cacti and Succulents. You don’t have to complete this event in the time limit to unlock these prizes:


Neighbourhood Tasks

Outdoor Decorations: Pink (S145,000) and Black (14SP) Floral Drink Stalls

*the makers are aware of the issue completing the Brew Flower Teas task and are working on a fix, one player said it works on the Red De Cafe Kettle (so it will probably work on the silver version too) If you don’t have access to this kettle you will need to wait for this to be fixed before you can progress


Happiness Level

You will need to complete a certain amount of Neighbourhood tasks to level up the Sim Springs Happiness:

  • Content- 55 Neighbourhood Tasks
  • Optimistic- 105 Neighbourhood Tasks
  • Exuberant- 175 Neighbourhood Tasks
  • Sim-sational- 250 Neighbourhood Tasks

Once you reach these milestones you will earn these prizes:

  • Content- Improved Highway and Birds in Sim Springs (visual changes to Sim Springs) S5,000 and 1 Mystery Key
  • Optimistic- More Birds in Sim Springs and Basic Canal (visual changes to Sim Springs) S10,000, 10LP and 1 Mystery Key
  • Exuberant- More Birds in Sim Springs and Completed Canal (visual changes to Sim Springs) S20,000, 10SP and 1 Mystery Key
  • Sim-sational- Sim Limit Increased by 1, More Birds in Sim Springs, Large Trees and Durable Roads (visual changes to Sim Springs) S30,000, 15LP, 15SP, 3 Mystery Keys, 4 hairstyles, 4 outfits and 4 shoes for female adult sims

We didn’t complete enough neighbourhood tasks in Sandy Suburbs to level up but we do in Palm Promenade so we can reach the level of Content. You will see the improved highway and birds flying over Sim Springs:

64 thoughts on “The Sims Freeplay- Guide to Sim Springs: Palm Promenade

  1. Thanks so much. Does the timer begin before I’ve spoke to Johnny Zest and I have listened to his plan ? I didn’t want to start the event until the morning and I’m not sure if the timer has already started. Many thanks x

  2. I didn’t finish the library and it says it’s blocked. Does that mean I won’t be able to do the new area?

  3. Thanks for all this help/advice. Just 1 question: I have tried (twice) to purchase the Jumbo toolkit boost to help complete the tasks, however whilst my game updates with the VIP points, it does not update to reflect the additional toolkit bonuses (ie, time to complete tasks is not reduced, number of sims required is not reduced etc). I have tried contacting support to get the bug fixed, but get no response. Do you have any suggestions on who/how to raise this issue as I would really like to purchase the toolkit and have it work to help complete the entire Promenade? Thank you

    • That is strange, have you tried to restore your purchases? Click the 3 white dots button, info and then restore purchases. I have passed on your comment to the makers to see what they suggest but let me know if that works.

      • Hi, thank you for your response. Yes, I have tried to restore my purchase but nothing happens unfortunately.

      • They have asked for your firemonkeys help case ID so they can look into this. If you reply I won’t approve it so no one else will be able to see the case ID but I will pass it on.

      • ps. once I have purchased the toolkit it does come up with an error message: “Store Error 20013: General error. Please try again later”. This message follows after I have had to do the European Bank payment authentication process. The 17.99 is still deducted from my bank account but then the error message appears. I have been able to get a refund from Apple so that is not the issue, but I would still like to purchase the toolkit as I want to ensure that I am able to complete all the tasks including the neighbourhood tasks. As previously mentioned this has happened twice (15 June and 17 June) when trying to make the purchase, both with the same error message. Thanks again for your help and assistance, it is greatly appreciated.

  4. I finished cactus cave and now it says I have to build the road to the tall tree house but I can’t figure out how to do that.

  5. I was watching your Palm Promenade videos and heard you say that some people complain about them. I’ll never understand why people watch content that they get for free and then complain about it. Anyway, I’ve read articles on your blog for years and recently discovered your YouTube channel. I can’t comment on your YouTube so just want to say I very much appreciate your content and I’m very sorry you’ve received bad feedback from people who just like being negative.

  6. I can’t find the tall tree house template in driveway homes, but I completed everything and won the zesty prize. Any thoughts on what might be happening?

    • I have asked the makers about this and they would like your player ID so they can look into this more. If you don’t know where to find it click on the 3 dots in the game and it should appear at the bottom of that screen. Reply to this and I will pass it on for you but I won’t post your comment so no one else will see your player ID

  7. I can’t seem to figure out how to brew flower tea… I have purchased more than 1 kind of kettle, placed it in all different places, etc… But my sims can’t make that tea, but they can make all of the othe kinds.

    • I finally got this to work using an electric kettle (mine was red) that actually has “kettle” in the name. It wasn’t unlocked in my game but I had one in my inventory from an architect house.

      • Thanks for your comment I tried the red kettle and it worked – I also had trouble with the trees but tried several until I found some that worked

      • Unfortunately I can’t find any kettle to work. I have contacted Firemonkeys support and they have confirmed that they are aware that there is an error with this task and the development team have been notified. A fix will ultimately be made in a future game update but due to the backlog of fixes needed they can’t say how long it will take to come out (however the task is not time limited). So unfortunately it’s either wait for it to be fixed or use SPs to skip the task.

    • I’ve continued to play around with this and finally found the ‘Green Tea Set’ worked for me and my SIMs were able to complete the ‘Brew Flower Tea’ task using this item.

  8. I noticed tonight when checking for an update in the Google Play Store that it says Palm Promenade ends on 8-7-22. Do you know if it’s true that it won’t be available after August 7th? Also, any idea when the next update will be available? And thanks for all your time and effort maintaining your website.

  9. when will i be able to do the Berry Boulevard part? i don’t know how to move on as i’ve done everything but there’s just no more tasks for me to do, and when i click the task icon and then click berry boulevard section on the task bar thing, all it says is “construction site! permission permits are pending – there could be something here to see later.” … any ideas? i don’t know how to move on!

      • I’m guessing that’s not coming out until June 2023. This happened with Sandy Suburbs and Palm Promenade, so it only makes sense that future neighborhoods would be released in consecutive summers.

  10. If you have to buy an extension at the very end does it mean I wont get the template for barter boardwalk? I don’t see it in my houses.

    • You won’t get the house template if you don’t complete the zest zone in the time limit, as you need to pay then you probably missed a deadline so you won’t get the house template.

  11. I finished the tasks for Barter Boardwalk in Palm Promenade, but it’s not showing for where I can build in a lot. Is it true that if you fall behind you won’t get a template? This was my second fall behind but still got the first three…the boardwalk was one of two I wanted the most. It would really suck if you lose out after having done all that work for nothing.

    • Unfortunately you won’t get the house template if you don’t complete the zesty zone in the time limit. I agree, it feels like a waste of time completing the event if you can’t get the main reward!

      • In other words it’s gone for good?!
        It doesn’t make sense because I bought an extension before that and still got a template; so I technically DID finish in time. I wasn’t even off by that much, I don’t get it. That was the one I wanted the most because it had shops and I demolished the “shops” I built in the past. I’m not great at designs so it was great seeing a promenade of shops. This sucks 😡

      • If you missed a deadline but managed to catch up you would get the template but if you don’t then unfortunately you can’t earn the house templates.

  12. I’m sorry, that just doesn’t sit right especially since they do repeats on events and there’s a chance you can get a template you missed; yet for here you lose it for good. It’s all confusing

  13. I finished the barter boardwalk within the time limit but it said they weren’t happy with the progress (whatever that means) and that I’d have to buy a time extension to move on (to the neighborhood tasks). Does anyone know what it means about unhappy with the progress and why I had to buy the extension anyway? I’m very confused.

  14. I’ve just messaged EA, I went to go & build & despite completing the quest & zesty quest I wasn’t awarded the Barter Boardwalk template. I’m not very happy at all. I even took the day off work to finish it. But assumed it would go straight into my house templates. Currently making the town happier. But I’m so disappointed. Your blog is brilliant. Keep up the good work.

  15. Hi, I’ve finished all the daily tasks in Palm Promenade, but I’m stuck on the next bit. I need to get 5 Sims to brew Flower Tea, but they refuse. I’ve tried different kettles, and different surfaces. They just keep refusing. Luckily this doesn’t appear to be a timed event. Any ideas?

  16. When is the glitch of the flower tea gong to be fixed. That’s the last that I have to do till I finish for the next task

  17. To do the flower tea you need to do this task last, you can use a teaset or a kettle. If you put the teaset on a table and move the chairs so the sims can make the tea and then sit down to drink it.

  18. The 1 star Green Tea Set worked for me! You can use the same tea set if you wait long enough for the sims to receive their tea and sit down. Then another sim is able to use the same tea set. Once they have all received their tea and sat down, the task will complete. I hope this helps! Love this page blog!!!
