The Sims Freeplay: How do I have so many LPs?

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:

  1. 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
  2. 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)
  3. 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

image

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.

image

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.

20140911_162359Black 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!
image

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

image

This video shows me completing the cooking hobby very quickly:

You also earn simoleons!

Each time you find a new collectible:
image

Spatula
Bronze= S25
Silver= S60
Gold= S150
Grater
Bronze= S25
Silver= S80
Gold= S250
Chefs Knife
Bronze= S50
Silver= S100
Gold= S275
Whisk
Bronze= S75
Silver= S200
Gold= S500
Rolling Pin
Bronze= S500
Silver= S500
Gold= S500
Measuring Spoon
Bronze= S500
Silver= S500
Gold= S500

And XPs!

Each row you complete you get an XP reward:
image

  • 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.
image

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!

The Sims Freeplay- Hobbies: Cooking

20140302-133445.jpgThis post will tell you all you need to know about the cooking hobby.

I’m going to tell you a little bit about how to do the hobby and what you can unlock if you find all the utensils.
Who can cook?

Adults, teens and seniors

As many sims as you want can do this hobby at one time
How can I cook?

Using a stove, fridge, toaster, microwave and chopping board (once unlocked)
Where can I cook?

At home and the restauarant

What are the options and when do they unlock?

  • Cheese and Tomato on Toast- 1 minute (needs 1 star toaster)
  • Bacon and Eggs- 5 minutes
  • Level 2- Burgers- 20 minutes (needs 1 star toaster)
  • Level 2- Pizza- 40 minutes (needs 1 star microwave)
  • Level 3- Chili Con Carne- 1 hour (needs 2 star microwave)
  • Level 3- Spaghetti- 2 hours (needs a 1 star chopping board)
  • Level 4- Quiche- 3 hours (needs a 2 star fridge)
  • Level 4- Nachos- 5 hours (needs a 1 star chopping board)
  • Level 5- Spicy Tuna Rolls- 8 hours (needs a 3 star fridge)
  • Level 5- Chicken Salad- 2 hours (needs a 1 star fridge)
  • Level 6- Tacos- 12 hours (needs a 1 star chopping board)
  • Level 6- Roast Beef- 1 Day (needs a 3 star stove)
  • Complete restaurant to unlock- Lobster Thermidor- 5 hours- costs 3LPs

TIP: at the moment your skill level increases no differently if you make a long dish to a short dish so if you can I would just make the 1 minute option over and over.

What are the skill levels?

There are 6 levels, these are:

  1. Water Burner
  2. Hot Mess Maker
  3. Ready Meal Maestro
  4. Home Cooking Hero
  5. Flavor Savior
  6. Hail to the Chef

 

What utensils are there to collect?

The pictures below will show you all the utensils you can collect:
20140826-140918.jpg

20140826-140924.jpg

20140826-140929.jpg

Level 1 utensils are:

  • Bronzed Spatula
  • Silver Spatula
  • Gold Spatula

Level 2 are:

  • Bronzed Grater
  • Silver Grater
  • Gold Grater

Level 3 are:

  • Bronzed Chefs Knife
  • Silver Chefs Knife
  • Gold Chefs Knife

Level 4 are:

  • Bronzed Whisk
  • Silver Whisk
  • Gold Whisk

Level 5 are:

  • Bronzed Rolling Pin
  • Silver Rolling Pin
  • Gold Rolling Pin

Level 6 are:

  • Bronzed Measuring Spoons
  • Silver Measuring Spoons
  • Gold Measuring Spoons

What do I win?

The first time you unlock chopping boards which can be found in the kitchen section as shown in the picture below:

 

20140830-104222.jpg

Further times you get 5LPs!
I can’t find one of the utensils, any tips?

The only advice I can really give you is to keep going, that is the only way you can find them- there is no trick to it, its completely random.

Is it worth using the lucky spin?

I would say no, it doesn’t give you one that you need it just gives you one at random so really it is probably just a waste of LPs

How do I start the collection again?

Once you have finished the collection you can click at the bottom of the medals list to start over.

This is my favourite hobby as its really quick to get LPs and money by doing it, you just need several sims in a room with a stove and toaster for each person and then do the 1 minute option over and over and within about an hour or so (depending on how many sims you have) you should be able to find all the utensils as long as you have unlocked all 6 levels! But there will be so many dishes laying around you should have a few sims there to clean them up. How Do I Have So Many LPs explains this in more detail.

Patrick says: “have all ten Sims in the room cooking and cleaning. That second it takes to present the dish can be used by the previous Sim to clean. I know it seems small, but over the course of that hour, ten Sims as opposed to six will yield a lot of money. ” And if you send your level six chefs to do another hobby then, restart them on the cooking hobby to get more money and an LP (as they will start at level one again they will get the rewards for levelling up)

I hope this has helped!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT THIS QUEST

please read before asking

I have missed this quest! Why can’t I start it yet?
You cannot miss main quests they have to be completed in order. You need to complete all previous quests (list can be found here) and reach level 16 before you can start this quest

Can I complete this quest even though I am passed level 16?
Yes, you just need to complete all previous quests then this quest will start automatically

Why are there two versions of this quest?
Some quests have two versions, as when the makers have updated the times for quests they haven’t updated them on all devices so some players still get the old times

I can’t afford the restaurant, how can I earn more simoleons?
This post may help

Can I build the restaurant early?

No, you cannot build the restaurant until you get the goal in this quest

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

How do I taste the Grouchs special dish?
Click on the Grouch and select the option

How do I cook a dish for Wumples?
Click on a stove and select cooking, pick the dish (cheese on toast is the quickest but you will need a toaster) wait for it to be cooked and then click on the bubble that appears above your sims head when the dish is ready

Why do blue footprints appear when I try to use an item?
Blue footprints appear when your sim cannot access an item you want them to use, you need to either rotate the item or move an item that has been placed in front of it so they can use it

How do I serve the food?
Click on the plates and select the option

I cannot find Wumples/Santa/Grouch! What should I do?
Firstly restart your device then try looking around all your houses in simtown for them, they have got to be somewhere!

Pizza is locked, how do I cook it?
Your sim needs to be level 2 at cooking and have a microwave at that house

I cannot make the quiche, it is greyed out, why?
Your sim needs to be level 4 at cooking and have a 2 star fridge and stove

How do I give the mud pie to the Grouch? It disappeared!
You don’t see the mud pie, just click on the Grouch and select the option to give mudpie

My game says there is something under construction when I try to open the front door, what do I do?
Firstly you need to read the pop up as it tells you exactly what is under construction, once you have go there and click on it to finish building, then you will be able to open the front door to the restaurant (it will be something you have built previously but probably just haven’t clicked to finish building yet!)

What do I get if I complete this quest in the time limit?
Chef outfits

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 restaurant 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

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
