please read before asking

How do I start this discovery quest?
Build the simtown express to start this quest

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

Help! I have built the hospital before the simtown express now I cannot build the simtown express, what should I do?

You will need to contact EA so they can fix this issue for you.

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 the quest you don’t have to do it at all but if you have already started it 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

I can’t complete the train demonstration, why?
Thomas needs to be at the park to be able to complete this, if he isn’t, go back to the house he was last at, find him and then go back to the park. If he still doesn’t arrive at the park, click on the whistle on the simtracker to bring him there.

What do I get if I complete this quest in the time limit?
Toddler train conductor outfit, the one that Thomas wears in this quest

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 downtown area and hospital 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 it you don’t have to do it

I don’t understand the Hospital Career, can you help?

This post explains all about Profession Careers so give it a read if you are stuck

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
