The Sims Freeplay- Outdoor Event

THIS EVENT IS OVER

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.
image

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!


12 SURVIVALIST ITEMS= 1 OUTDOOR PACK


TIPS FOR FINDING THEM ALL IN THE TIME LIMIT:

-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.

The Sims Freeplay- Guide to the Campgrounds

Once you have completed the Vacationers Guide to the Outdoors Quest you can then open up the picnic area:
image

Firstly the area needs cleaning:

  • Gas Bottle- 10 hours 30 minutes x2 = 21 hours
  • Trash- 8 hours 30 minutes x2 = 17 hours
  • Garbage Can- 6 hours 30 minutes
  • Trash- 4 hours 30 minutes x3 = 13 hours 30 minutes
  • Jerry Can- 4 hours 30 minutes x3 = 13 hours 30 minutes
  • Broken Lantern- 3 hours 30 minutes
  • Trash- 1 hour 30 minutes x3 = 4 hours 30 minutes
  • Trash- 45 minutes x6 = 4 hours 30 minutes
  • Trash- 15 minutes x2= 30 minutes

Total: 3 days 12 hours 30 minutes

NOTE: use as many sims as possible (max 10) to clean up quicker!

Once you have cleaned the area you can start on the Survivalist Hobby

  • This is a time limited hobby, you have 7 days to complete the hobby for the first time to unlock picnic baskets
  • Once you have completed the hobby you unlock the suspension bridge, bird feeders and lookout post
  • Teens, Adults and Seniors can do this hobby but only one sim can complete it at once

TIP: you can send another sim to a neighbours to complete quicker with two sims!

  • Click on the compass/ survival gear in the middle of the picnic area:
    image
  • The only option is explore for 2 hours 30 minutes

TIP: when using LPs you can wait for half an hour to pass then you will only need to use 1LP to speed it up instead of 2!

Once you complete the survivalist hobby you unlock the suspension bridge, bird feeders and deer spring falls lookout (use the lookout to complete the goal to test the depths)

Build the suspension bridge to access the rest of the campground and storyteller hobby.

Once you have access that area it needs cleaning:

  • Garbage Can- 6 hours 30 minutes x2 =13 hours
  • Trash- 8 hours 30 minutes x5 =42 hours 30 minutes
  • Trash- 15 minutes
  • Trash- 45 minutes x3 =2 hours 15 minutes
  • Trash- 4 hours 30 minutes x5 =22 hours 30 minutes
  • Jerry Can- 4 hours 30 minutes x2 =9 hours
  • Gas Bottle- 10 hours 30 minutes x5 =52 hours 30 minutes
  • Broken Lantern- 3 hours 30 minutes x3 =10 hours 30 minutes
  • Oil Drum- 12 hours 30 minutes x3 =37 hours 30 minutes
  • Trash- 1 hour 30 minutes

NOTE: use as many sims as possible (max 10) to clean up quicker!

Once that area is clear you can start on the Storyteller Hobby

  • Again this is a time limited hobby, you have 7 days to complete the hobby for the first time to unlock the campfire
  • Once you have completed the hobby you unlock the tents, canoe and deer meadow
  • Teens, Adults and Seniors can do this hobby but only one sim can complete it at once

TIP: you can send another sim to a neighbours town to complete quicker with two sims!

  • Click on the storyteller chair next to the campfire:

image

  • There are 4 options, you need to complete one row at a time before you unlock the next option when you complete this quest for the first time

TIP: I wouldn’t use the lucky spin on this hobby, it will be cheaper to just speed up the action with LPs!

Once you complete the storyteller hobby you unlock tents, deer meadow and the canoe

At the entrance to the campgrounds there is an information board where you can:

  • Examine Map- 5 minutes
  • Read History- 1 hour 30 minutes
  • Plan Trip- 2 hours 30 minutes

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT THIS QUEST

please read before asking

How do I start this discovery quest?
Build deer spring falls to start this quest

Does the time limit start when I click to build or once the building has complete?
Once it has finished building the quest and time limit will begin

Why can’t I do this discovery quest yet?
You cannot do more than one discovery quest at the same time, if you are currently on another one (the list can be found here) you will not be able to do this one until that one is completed

Can I do discovery quests at the same time as a main quest?
Yes you can

Do I have to do this quest?
If you don’t start building the campgrounds you don’t have to do this quest at all but if you have already started building or started this quest you need to complete it before you can move on to the next quest

I haven’t started this quest yet, will it still be available when I want to do it?
Yes it will be, you can choose to start it whenever you like

How do I send my sim to the campgrounds?
Go to the campgrounds and click on the whistle next to a sim who isn’t busy on the simtracker, this post explains more about the simtracker

I’m stuck on searching for clues, how do I do this?
You don’t need to search for clues, the answers are below

What is the answer to the rangers puzzle?
Plants

What is the answer to the tracking puzzle?
The barbecue

What do you mean when you say a goal can be started early?
Any goal that you can normally do can be started early because you will have access to it and any goal that you can’t normally do you will have to wait until you get the goal to be able to complete it
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

What do you use to set the bait?
Plants, fruits and nuts

What do I get if I complete this quest in the time limit?
Sleeping bags

What happens if I don’t complete in the time limit, can I still finish this quest?
Yes you have to finish it to unlock the survivalist hobby and campgrounds before you can move onto the next quest

I didn’t complete in the time limit, can I restart the quest?
No, you cannot redo quests

Can I still get the prize if I don’t complete in the time limit?
No, the only way to get the limited time prizes is by completing the quest in the time limit

I don’t like this quest! Can I just skip it?
No, you have to complete this quest before you can move onto the next one now that you have started it, if you don’t start building the campgrounds you don’t have to do this quest but once it is built the quest will begin

Some times are slightly different on my game, why is this?
Times may vary depending on the star rating of the item you are using, as the higher star rating an item has the quicker you will complete a goal

Some times are really off/ different goals show for me, why is this?
This will be because the quest has been updated recently, I try my best to keep these posts up to date but it is difficult as I cannot redo every quest each time the game is updated. If you notice any changes please let me know so I can update the post
