I constantly get asked this question, “how do you have so many LPs? I don’t have any!”
The one word answer: Cooking!
The cooking hobby is the best way I have found of making a lot of LPs very quickly, some people seem confused about how this works so I will be explaining exactly what I do in this post.
Firstly you need to complete the Bread Winner Quest to unlock the cooking hobby
Then you need:
- Sims– as many as possible, you can have 1-10 in one house, obviously the more you have the quicker you are going to complete the collection
- Oven, Toaster and Counter for each sim– if you have 6 sims, you will need 6 ovens, 6 toasters and 6 counters (TIP: if you have a toaster on a corner counter and it cannot be accessed by any sim you only need one toaster in the house for all sims to use)
- Space– I use an empty house with all sims in one room, they are spaced out in their own workspaces with an oven and toaster on the counter, just so another sim doesn’t get in their way and cause them to cook a meal without getting a collectible- this can happen if they are squashed together. NOTE: you don’t need all your sims in one house, I just do because it is easier
Next you need to start cooking!
The one minute option, cheese and tomato on toast is the one you want to select
So click on the oven, click cooking and then on cheese and tomato on toast, it costs S5 each time but you get a lot more simoleons back when you find a new item.
Every time you make a dish a plate is left on the floor, I clean each one up after each dish is made, otherwise the house will be full of dishes and it really slows down the game.
TIP: If you have no sinks in the house, they will take the plates to the trashcan. A quick way to get rid of the plates is that if you kick over the trashcan the plates will just disappear OR if you store all the doors and remove all sinks from the room then the plates should disappear!
Black circle under plates– if a black circle appears under your plate this means you have so many plates in one pile so when you clean up it will take you several goes at cleaning (as you have so many plates to clean up) before the black circle will gradually decrease and the plates will disappear.
TIP: to save time click clean up, then cancel the action when they bend down to pick it up, the dish will disappear and you save some time!
Once you have completed the whole collection you will get 5LPs (you need to complete this hobby once to unlock chopping boards before you start earning LPs when you complete it) with lots of sims you can complete this collection in under an hour!
Make sure you then click restart collection before another sim finishes making the dish
This video shows me completing the cooking hobby very quickly:
You also earn simoleons!
Each time you find a new collectible:
Each row you complete you get an XP reward:
- 1st- 750XPs
- 2nd- 1000XPs
- 3rd- 1500XPs
- 4th- 2000XPs
- 5th- 3000XPs
- 6th- 5000XPs
And a reward for each time you level up:
Level 2 Hot Mess Maker= 250XPs
Level 3 Ready Meal Maestro= 500XPs
Level 4 Home Cooking Hero= S750
Level 5 Flavor Savior= 10,000 town value
Level 6 Hail to the Chef= 1LP
Once your sim gets to level 6 cooking it is a good idea to put them onto a different hobby for one go at that, I use the ghost hunters hobby as it is quite quick too, then I go back to cooking to start from level 1 again.
This means you will get more money, XPs, town value and an LP for levelling up to level 6 again.
Don’t worry- going back to level 1 doesn’t mean they will just find level 1 items as you have unlocked them all now!
Hope this helps!
