The Sims Freeplay- Geeky Life Dreams List

This guide is to help you decide which life dream you want your geeky sim to have at each life stage, I would always go for the longest life dreams just as you don’t have to be on the game constantly but unless it states the option to choose you can pick any option on that object! If there is a life dream that you are unsure of how to complete it this guide also shows you what item to use and which option to select.

Please note: times may vary depending on the star rating an item has and I haven’t included how much the bar increases by each time as it depends on what level orb you are working towards.

The Sims Freeplay- Guide to Life Dreams and Orbs

A lot of people find the life dreams concept confusing to understand, this guide will give you step by step instructions on how to give your sim a personality, completing life dreams, collecting, passing on or using orbs.

For Frequently Asked Questions about Life Dreams please read this post

1. Giving your sim a personality

When creating or adding a sim the first tab is the personality tab

20141119-163634.jpg
or

If you didn’t give a sim a personality when creating them you can click on the wardrobe and select browse clothes to find the personality tab

20141119-161039.jpg

20141119-160928.jpg
You can choose from:

Changing personality

Remember if you change personalities all progress towards the life dream will be lost

The symbol circled in the image below is what to click on to change a sims personality (in the life dreams tab)

20141119-162535.jpg
2.Choosing a life dream

Go to life dreams tab and click choose a life dream and the list of 3 life dreams to choose from will appear

20141119-163710.jpg
or

The screen will appear straight away once a sim has aged for you to select a life dream, either select one and click OK or if you click NOT NOW, then you can go to the life dreams tab, and select choose a life dream to choose from a new list of 3 dreams.

20141119-161511.jpg

When selecting a life dream go for the ones that are most suitable for you, don’t pick ‘I want to do horse tricks’ for 3 hours if you can’t get on the game every 3 hours. If you don’t know how long a life dream takes you can usually select the object that you will need to use and it will give you a time so ‘I want to observe fish’ click on a fish tank and you will see the longest option is 5 hours. (do this before you select it as a life dream incase it isn’t long enough!)

3. Do what the life dream tells you to do

Most are very obvious, if your sim wants to watch animals on TV, select a TV option (I usually pick the longest option so in this case it would be movie marathon, this gets the dream done quickly)

A life dreams symbol appears on the action once you have selected it as your life dream. So you know which ones will increase the life dream!

20141119-161601.jpg

4. Age your sim

Once the life dream for that stage has been completed you can age your sim early

You can advance age early in three ways, either click yes when the pop up below appears:

20141119-162350.jpgOr if you select no you can advance age from the life dreams menu

20141119-162358.jpg
or

Wait until the timer for that stage is up:

20141119-162454.jpg
The green circle around your sim is the timer, once it gets to red that stage is almost up!

5. Repeat steps 2-4 for further life stages

Once your senior has completed their life dream it will say fufilled life dream in the menu.

NOTE: You cannot give their orb to another sim until that senior passes on and leaves it behind.

Now your seniors can plant and enjoy the rest of their life or you can end their life early too.
Go to the age controller tab and click on the symbol circled in the image below:

20150318-181304.jpg

Then click advance, it is free if they completed their life dreams!

20150318-181314.jpg
Which will turn their timer red

Once their timer is up an exclamation mark will appear above their head, click on it, select yes when the pop up below appears:

20141119-164943.jpgThen the grim reaper will come and end their life, leaving the orb in their place.

20141119-164948.jpg

6. Pick up the orb

The way I do it is by going to buy mode and clicking on it and storing it in my inventory

20141119-163742.jpg

Now it is in there you can use it to:

7. Give orb to a new sim or keep to build places

Giving to another sim

In step 1 where you give your sim a personality you will now be able to see an orb is available (if the first sim had a sporty personality this next sim needs a sporty personality too) click on the personality and there you can select the stored orb if you want to (if not select no orb)

20141119-160400.jpg

20141119-160405.jpg
Your first sim will get a bronze orb, giving it to another sim now gives that second sim the chance to get it up to a silver, then a third sim can get it to a gold and a fourth sim to a platinum.

Bronze to Silver

Silver to Gold

Gold to Platinum

Keep it to build a place

But if you don’t want to give it to another sim and instead want to use it to build a place then just keep it in your inventory until you need it

Geeky orbs= Arcade

1 Bronze Geeky orb, 1 Silver Geeky orb

Sporty orbs= Beach

2 Bronze Sporty orbs, 2 Silver Sporty orbs

Entertainer orbs= Carnival

5 Bronze Entertainer orbs, 2 Silver Entertainer orbs

Animal Fanatic orbs= Pet Park

2 Bronze Animal Fanatic orbs, 4 Silver Animal Fanatic Orbs

If you want to build the arcade and your first sim got you a bronze geeky orb you will need to give that orb to another sim who can then get the orb to a silver, then you can get a third sim to get a bronze geeky orb and the arcade can then be built!

Once you have built the place there are things in them to build to, using the same orbs:

20141119-165037.jpg

If you wanted to build the pet park I would have 6 sims all at once working towards a bronze orb, once 4 of them have completed their life dreams they can then be passed onto 4 new sims to get them to a silver. The 2 bronze ones can be stored until needed.

Wondering how many orbs you will need for each place? click here!

Pause a sim

You need a platinum orb to pause your sim at that life stage forever, this post explains how to do that

I hope this has made it a bit clearer!

The Sims Freeplay- Changes To The Ageing Feature!

THIS POST WAS LAST UPDATED AUGUST 2014, IT MAY NO LONGER BE UP TO DATE

EA have heard our suggestions to change the life dreams update and they have! – well they kind of have, they have started fixing the ageing feature so far -there is still a lot that could be better but it’s a start.

So what’s changed?

  • 1. LP costs for reset/ advance options for life stages have been reduced which I’m pleased they have done, it seems less money grabbing now.

Resetting

  • Baby- I don’t have a baby at the moment but I’m assuming it will cost 1LP
  • Toddler-1LP
  • Preteen- 2LPs
  • Teen-2LPs
  • Adult-3LPs
  • Senior-3LPs

Advancing

  • Baby- I don’t have a baby at the moment but I’m assuming it will cost 2LPs too!
  • Toddler-2LPs
  • Preteen-2LPs
  • Teen-2LPs
  • Adult-2LPs
  • Senior-2LPs

These are the costs if you choose to age up early, the reset prices may differ if you wait until their life stage is up.

  • 2. The time the grim reaper appears for senior sims has been pushed back to later in their life stage which I prefer because it was really creepy!

 

If you haven’t got these changes yet the advice is to force close the game and/or reboot your device while connected to the Internet.

They say they are investigating further improvements so fingers crossed for an update to turn off automatic ageing!

The Sims Freeplay- RESULTS Are You Getting The New Dying Update?

Thank you to everyone who took part in this little vote! The voting is now closed after a week of more than 1000 people taking part!  These are the results displayed in a nice little pie chart!

results dying update

So the results are pretty clear, nearly a half of the voters have got the update but don’t like it!

This and the mass anger on The Sims Freeplay Facebook page make my wonder where the majority of people who said they wanted their sims to die (according to EA) are hiding!

Thanks for reading!

The Sims Freeplay- Life Dreams Menu

THIS POST WAS LAST UPDATED AUGUST 2014, IT MAY NO LONGER BE UP TO DATE

A lot of people appear to be having a problem either finding the life dreams menu or finding the life dreams goals, this quick post will hopefully clear up a few problems.
Once you get to the goal ‘open life dreams menu’ on the life dreams and legacies quest you should see a life goal for your senior who you gave the orb to. This is shown in the image below:

20140318-183330.jpg
With this life dream that appears you will need to find the option on a computer, once you complete the task your life dreams level will increase, you need to fill up the meter to fulfill the life dream and upgrade your orb from bronze to silver.

If you can’t see this at this point then you may have a glitch in your game, you will need to contact EA to see if they can fix this as I am unable to sort out technical issues.
