The Sims Freeplay- Starting Goals Early

For some quests you really need to be good with time management but sometimes that still isn’t enough, if you want to complete a quest in time you can use the posts on this site to see what goal will be coming next. Another great way to be able to complete these quests on time is by starting certain goals earlier than required which I will be explaining in this post.

What goals can be started early?

Any goal that you can normally do can be started early because you will have access to it, for example:

  • Bake rocky road (any baking or gardening)
  • Watch a documentary

Any goal that you can’t normally do you will have to wait until you get the goal to be able to complete it, goals such as:

  • Post bridge schematics
  • Look up locksmith on computer
The tip with this method is to put the sim doing that action early in a different house that you cannot go to until you get that goal or it will not work

I will explain an example with the Raiders of the Lost Artifacts quest, so while on the previous quest (Mysterious Island) I had a quick look at this quest post to see if anything needed to be started during the previous quest

As you only have 2 days to complete this quest it is a good idea to get a head start (I completed this quest within a few minutes because of the early start)

Goals below in bold can be started early:
  1. Go to the mysterious island
  2. Tap on a monument
  3. Read big book of stuff- 19 hours
  4. Leftovers from a fridge- 18 seconds
  5. Search for artifacts in the garbage- 8 minutes 30 seconds
  6. Find the third artifact
  7. Upgrade the riches of terra to level 1

The first 2 goals cannot be done early but they don’t take any time at all.

Goal 3 takes 19 hours to do which is almost half of the time limit.

I started goal 3 while my mysterious bridge was building, but you could start it even earlier! It’s a good idea to do this in a house that no one lives in (or the person doing the goal lives in on their own) so other sims don’t get in your way. Once I finished the tap on the monument goal I then go to the house where the sim is reading the big book of stuff and they should be done by now so it will complete straight away!

Goal 4 can also be started early but it is very short so there isn’t really any point.

The last 3 tasks cannot be started early but they are relatively quick.

The Sims Freeplay- Deleting a Sim

As you can no longer delete a sim from the wardrobe I thought I should quickly show you how you can now delete a sim from the game.

If you click on your sim you will see a few options, the red circle with a cross through it is the symbol you need to click on (it’s really quite small compared to the other options so I’m not surprised how many people have missed it!)

The Sims Freeplay- Ultimate Makeover

When you click on your sim you will see the option for ultimate makeover, this guide explains what the ultimate makeover is and whether I think it’s worth using!   20140814-184919.jpg So what is an ultimate makeover? It allows you to change the DNA of your sim (change name, gender and skin colour) it basically takes you back into the create a sim menu.

How much does it cost? It will cost you 12LPs 20140814-185000.jpg 20140814-185143.jpg Can you cancel it once you enter the ultimate makeover? Yes, click the back button at the top and it will refund you your 12LPs

I don’t really think much of this feature, it is not needed when your sims are going to age and die quickly anyway.

Okay if you have made a mistake to a baby sim, naming it a boys name when it’s a girl you might find this useful but I don’t think I will be wasting my LPs on this. And 12LPs is a lot for what you get!

This video shows how the ultimate makeover works:

The Sims Freeplay- 15 Ways To Make Money and LPs!

I always get asked “how do I make money and LPs quickly?” so I have come up with a list of the main ways you can make money and LPs!

  1. Buy them– you could always buy them if you are struggling, if you were to buy one of them I would go for LPs over simoleons as LPs are harder to make!
  2. Level up– when you level up you get LPs. You can level up quicker by reaching relationship milestones that give you 100+XPs and by completing rows in hobby collections
  3. Complete goals– each goal you complete gives you a reward, whether it’s money, LPs or XPs and when you complete a selection of the weekly goals you receive more money and LPs.
  4. Increase town value– you receive LPs when you reach certain values!
  5. Garden and bake– if all of your sims are gardening you can earn loads of simoleons. If you are busy put your sims on gardening and baking tasks for that length of time, e.g. While you are sleeping make all your sims plant beans for 9 hours. Or if you have a spare hour or so you could set up a plant growing plot for lots of your sims as shown below and grow some carrots or corn over and over to make even more money! Remember if sims are inspired they earn more money!

    Thanks Nige for the picture!

    Thanks Nige for the picture!
    Thanks again Nige!
  6. Pets finding treasure– the more expensive the pet the more likely they will find LPs but they mostly find simoleons
  7. Go to work– the more they go to work the more money they will make as they get promoted
  8. Party boat– the more neighbours you have the more prizes you get, you mostly get simoleons from this but it is possible to get LPs
  9. Competition center– this will give you a certain hobby and you enter a sim who has the highest level in that hobby for 24 hours and it will give you a position and a reward, if you are first you will get 3 LPs! You still get a reward wherever you are placed in the competition.
  10. Bingo hall– you can enter your seniors in this for a day, I have never won at bingo yet though!
  11. Hobbies– you get simoleons for finding a new piece and once you’ve completed the collections to collect the main prizes, complete it again for an LP reward! The cooking hobby is my favourite because you can make lots of money and LPs relatively quickly with several of your sims working on it at once! How Do I Have So Many LPs explains this in more detail.
  12. Collect revenue from car drives– if you buy the 1 story mansion you get a free car with it, you can use that to drive about town, click on the music notes and collect the money- the more expensive the car the more likely you will find LPs
  13. Daily reward– the mailbox gives you simoleons every 24 hours, the amount is based on your town value, the higher your value the more money you get but there is a limit on this
  14. Money from houses (house revenue)- click on the money and XPs signs on the town map for simoleons
  15. Free Simoleons/ LPs/ SPs from the paperboy- a paperboy appears in your town with a film reel in a bubble above his head, click on this to watch an advert, once you have watched it you will earn either furniture, simoleons, LPs or SPs! 

Don’t cheat! Using the time cheat is more trouble than it is worth, if you use it other things will go wrong with your game, for example:

  • Buildings take longer to build
  • Daily rewards don’t arrive
  • Babies take longer to arrive

It is possible to get lots of money and LPs without cheating, you just have to work hard.

 

Need Social Points? Watch this video: 

This method still works but they have unhelpfully made the social point flower cost 20LPs now instead of 5 so a bit more cooking is needed!
