The Sims Freeplay- How Much Does it Cost to Build a Workplace? (Workplace Price Increases)

This has been a much requested post, it has just taken me a while to get all the information collected for it! This post shows how much it costs to build each workplace, the time it takes and how many sims are needed in your town as all three of these factors increase each time you build a workplace.

NOTE: this table included the profession workplaces (police station, movie studio and hospital) and Simtown High School.

 WORKPLACES BUILT SO FAR  TIME COST (SIMOLEONS) SIMS NEEDED
0 2 minutes 30 seconds 500 1
1 2 hours 500 1
2 4 hours 600 4
3 8 hours 2,500 5
4 12 hours 2,500 6
5 16 hours 5,000 8
6 1 day 10,000 10
7 1 day 4 hours 20,000 12
8 1 day 8 hours 100,000 14
9 1 day 12 hours 150,000 16
10 1 day 12 hours 600,000 18
11 1 day 12 hours 1,000,000 18

However some workplaces that you have to build during a quest do not follow this pattern, some may be completely different while others such as the Simtown Elementary take a certain amount of time to build and this doesn’t change but the cost and sims needed still increase each time you build a workplace.

Does building a workplace increase the price, time and sims needed for simtown businesses or houses? No, building a workplace only increases the requirements for building another workplace, it will not affect a business or house. If you build a business then the requirements will increase for the next business only and if you built a house only the time and cost for building a new house will increase.

You can find the table for Businesses here

The Sims Freeplay- Competition Center

The competition center is a good way to earn extra LPs or simoleons, if you haven’t built it yet you can find out where it is in simtown from the town map 
The higher level you are in a career or hobby the more chance you have of winning first prize at the competition center.

When you click on the competition center (as shown in the picture below) it will appear with a competition (I had the archery hobby) it tells you how much you will get for each placing (which is always the same, regardless of the competition you get):

  • 1st place- 3LPs
  • 2nd place- 1LP
  • 3rd place- S1000 and 1000XPs
  • 4th place- S500 and 500XPs

Then you can select a sim- always go for the sim with the highest level in that hobby/career (it will tell you what level your sims are at)

For example: Zack is level 6 in archery so I would definitely use him over Hayley who has never done archery before (level 0/6)

NOTE: your sim must not be busy for them to partake in a competition, they will appear greyed out if they are busy.

Once you have selected your sim they will be busy competing for 24 hours, once the time is up you will need to go back to the competition center to see where they were placed.

If your sim is level 6 then they should come first but they don’t always!

At 9am everyday a new competition becomes available if your sim isn’t partaking in one already so keep checking back until you find one that you want to do!

NOTE: If you changed a sims career or hobby, for example if they did cooking and then you changed them to fishing their skill level for cooking will now be 0 so entering a cooking competition will earn them fourth place.

Is it worth it? I rarely use the competition center if I am being completely honest, it is a good way to make a few extra LP but it does mean your sim cannot do anything else for a whole day.

Which careers appear at the competition center?

  • Teaching
  • Acting
  • Politics
  • Music
  • Real Estate
  • Science
  • Athletics
  • Student (preteen required)
  • High School Student (teen required)

The Sims Freeplay- Career Guide: Getting a Job, Sending a Sim to Work and Quitting

In this post I show you how to get a job, send your sims to work and how to quit a job. You can find information on each career on this page


Click here to head straight to:
Getting a JobSending a Sim to Work Quitting a JobFAQs


Getting a Job

Working is a great way to make money, to get a job you need to find the occupations tab (previously called the careers and education tab) which is the first one on the sim information panel.

Next to your sims picture it should say unemployed, click on the blue suitcase:

You will then open up the list of careers, as you unlock more workplaces you will unlock more careers, once you find the one you want click ‘accept job’

Sending a Sim to Work

Once they have a job you can send your sims to work whenever you want during the day but only once a day if you are completing a normal career. You can then send your sims to work again at/after 12am as it is the start of a new day. If your sims are completing profession careers and you are VIP level 1 you can send them to work twice in a day (this will cost you 15LP) or you can wait until tomorrow and you will be able to send them to work again without being VIP.

To send them to work, go to the simtracker and find the sim, you will see a pulsing suitcase under the image of them, as shown in the picture below:

20140905-162408.jpg

Click on the suitcase and you will be asked to confirm you want them to go to work:

20140905-162413.jpg

If they are completing a profession career you will be asked if you want to accompany sim (go to work with them), send alone (let them go alone but you can visit them at work later) or work off-site (which is like a normal career where you can’t visit them during their shift):

Want more information? Read: Guide to Profession Careers

Quitting a Job

Quitting is very similar to giving your sims a job.

Go to the occupations tab of the information panel:

image

Click on the career icon of the sim you want to quit

When the ‘choose an occupation’ screen appears you will see a red box under the job they have saying ‘quit job’ click that:

image

It will ask you if you are sure, say yes:

image

They will have quit their job

Should you change your sims career when you reach the highest level? I don’t recommend it as you earn less money until you reach the highest level again.

Which careers are normal and which are professions? Normal careers are: Artist, Athlete, Firefighter, Musician, Politician, Real Estate Agent, Scientist and Teacher

Profession careers are: Filmmaker, Medical Staff and Police

Can I send a sim to work automatically? No, you have to manually send them sometime during the day.

What happens if I don’t send my sim to work everyday, will they lose their job? No they don’t lose their job, nothing happens you just won’t earn any money or XP if you don’t send them to work.

My sim won’t go to work, why? They may be in a bad mood, improve their mood by fulfilling their needs and then try again.

How often can I send them to work? You can send them once a day if they are completing a normal career. You can send your sims to work again at/after 12am as it is the start of a new day.

If your sims are completing profession careers and you are VIP level 1 you can send them to work twice in a day (this will cost you 15LP) or you can wait until tomorrow and you will be able to send them to work again without being VIP:

The Sims Freeplay- Careers: Politician

Politician is one of 8 careers your adult sims can have (not including profession careers) and this post explains all you need to know about this career.

How do I start this career?

You firstly need to build the town hall which is one of the goals in the Higher Education Quest. Then you will be able to select politician from the list of careers.

Once your sim is a politician you can click on the pulsing suitcase on the simtracker to send them to work once a day. During this time you won’t see them at work and you cannot go to the town hall, on the simtracker it will just say they are at work, once the time is up they will arrive back at home and be rewarded with the simoleons and XP they earned for that shift. The more they work, the higher level they will reach in that career and the more money they will earn.

You can then send your sims to work again at/after 12am as it is the start of a new day.

Still unsure? This post explains how to get a job, send your sims to work and how to quit

What hours do they work?

You can send your sims to work anytime of the day for 7 hours, once they finish their shift you will receive the simoleons and XP they have earned. When they reach a new level in that career a pop up will appear to show you how much they will earn for the next shift.

What are the levels and how much money and XP do you earn for a day at work?

 Title Simoleons Experience Points (XP)
1 Secretary 950 595
2 Intern 1,030 890
3 Campaign Manager 1,140 1,260
4 Council Member 1,170 1,530
5 Mayor 1,220 1,780

How do I find out what level my sim is on?

You can see this information in the occupations (career) tab. This tab is where you give your sims careers to begin with. Here you can see your sims career and the level they are on and if you click on the symbol of the career you will be able to see how much your sims earn and you can quit jobs from here too.

Which career earns the most money? Find out here

 

Can I increase my sims career level from home?

Yes you can buy mirrors from the promotions r us store or hobby and career items tab of the home store. It costs S300 for the basic mirror but you can also buy others if you have completed the live event to unlock them. Once placed in your sims house you can practice speech for 3 hours. During this time your career bar will increase like it does when they go to work (but slower) If you don’t want to buy a mirror you can also use the soap box in the park to make a speech for 12 minutes (or you can pick a longer option) this will increase it too!
