The Sims Freeplay- Designer Rugs Event


This event is only available for 7 days from the 15th September.

You need to complete the fishing hobby 7 times within the 7 days to unlock all 7 rugs- quite a challenge this one if you aren’t already on level 8. You get a new rug at random each time you complete it, once you unlock a rug you get to keep it even if you don’t find them all.

If you haven’t done the Fishing hobby yet you can find details here


You need to firstly accept this quest, it will remove the fishes you have already created from the collection so you don’t get a head start.

If you say no you can start it from the hobby tab.

Once you have said yes, start fishing and you just have to complete the collection seven times in 7 days!


-have more than one sim working on it if you can! You can send a sim to a neighbours park and if you have build the beach or campgrounds you can also fish there!
-if you can, do the 10 minute option over and over, you will find the most fish this way
-if you are not a level 8 yet it seems that you can still do the 10 minute option and make it to level 8 fairly quickly so no need to do the longest options!
-remember to click start new collection at the top of the fishing hobby collections list once you have got all the fish
-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 Rugs

NOTE: The first picture shows you all the shapes each rug comes in, after that the other pictures just show you one rug so you can see the design and the prices for each

Navy Circles


Purple Shag


Warm Geo Rug


Pink Zigzag Rug

Remember this isn’t the order you will get them in, you will find them at random

Good Luck!

How do I collect fish?

Click on the fishing rod and select an option once the exclamation mark appears your sim will either catch a fish or will be caught by a giant fish- you will need to click on the exclamation mark 3 times when the fish jumps to be spat out:

If you don’t manage to click 3 times the fish will still spit out your sim and disappear but you will not earn an item for the collection.

TIP: senior sims will not be caught by the giant fish

What do I win?

The first time you complete the collection you unlock the fishersim outfit which can be found in the wardrobe once you have built the costume and swim store

The second time you unlock fish wallpaper and posters

Further times gives you 3 Lps
I cant find one of the fish, any tips?
The only advice I can give you is to keep going, that is the only way you can find them- there is no trick to it, its completely random
It it worth using 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 fish again at the bottom of the fish collection list to start over
