The Sims Freeplay- Items Needed To Create The Best Social Tasks House!

Do you often visit a neighbours town and you cannot find the items you need to complete social tasks in one place? This post will stop you being that neighbour and instead be able to create a house full of all the social items needed so you can become the best neighbour in simtown!

find my list of Social Tasks here

The house ideally needs to be at least 2 storys so you can add a firepole

Garden Items:

  • A pool with an inflatable pool toy and a diving board
  • A pool for your neighbours to clean (doesn’t have to be a dirty pool)

TIP: I think its best to have 2 pools, one clean and one dirty so if your neighbour is looking to swim they don’t have to clean the pool first

  • Poolside Recliner
  • Sleeping Bag
  • Garden Patch to plant:

TIP: again you could have two garden patches, one that they can use to plant and the other one with a sim eating plant that they can negotiate with it (grow lettuce until it turns into a sim eating plant)

Pets:

  • A Cat
  • A Dog and a Frisbee

Main Career and Hobby Items (these can be brought from the promotions r us store once they have been unlocked):

  • Auction Podium
  • Guitar
  • Easel
  • Telescope
  • Camera
  • Soccer Ball
  • Fashion Studio
  • Fire Hydrant
  • Mirror
  • Woodworking Bench

I’m not sure exactly how many of the hobbies appear in social tasks so I’ve only listed the most commonly asked for hobby items here but I would recommend you have all the hobby items you can in this one house. My house below is still a working progress, each time I unlock a new hobby I add that item to the house, some may not be needed to complete tasks but they will be helpful for neighbours completing time limited hobby events!

  •  Haunted Items– for the ghost hunting hobby (these can be found in buy mode, look for the red ghost symbol!)

Other Important Items:

  • Car
  • Teen Study Desk
  • Preteen Bookshelf
  • MP3 Player
  • Magazines
  • BBQ
  • Foosball Table (although there is one in Another Simtown!)
  • Trampoline
  • Phone
  • TV
  • Stereo
  • Computer
  • Toddler Building Blocks
  • Bookcase
  • Toilet
  • Sink
  • Shower
  • Bed
  • Wardrobe
  • Sofa
  • Chair
  • Bath
  • Coffee Machine
  • Teapot
  • Fridge
  • Oven:

TIP: It is best to have 2 ovens, a normal one so your neighbours can bake items and the other one that is on fire (cook brownies until they cause a fire so your neighbours can extinguish it)

 

Also its great if you have some places in your town such as The Mall, Community CenterCampgrounds and Snow Park built!

 

What about a pet farm? When it was possible to have more than 2 pets in a house some players created pet farms which neighbours like to visit to find treasure from these pets quickly, it isn’t possible to make one anymore.

 

Once you have finished editing your house you will need to Save to the Cloud so your neighbours can see the changes you have made.

The Sims Freeplay- Visiting Neighbours

In this post I will show you how to visit neighbours in The Sims Freeplay. You need to be level 9 or above before you can access the party boat and start completing social tasks.

Click on the world symbol (flashes to a gift) to access the party boat:

  

TIP: It is a good idea to have a look at your active goal tab to find out what goal you need to do at a neighbours before you send anyone there, you don’t want to waste time sending an adult when a preteen needs to do the goal.

1.Click on the party boat and find the neighbour you want to visit and click on visit:

image2.Select the sim you want to send there, only a sim who isn’t busy can go.

Remember:

Only one sim can visit a neighbour at once

You can only visit one neighbour at a time

Babies and Toddlers cannot visit neighbours

Completing Social Tasks allows you to earn Social Points

image3.Select the object in your neighbours town to complete the social tasks goal, this will be the only active task you can see while at a neighbours. You can find my list of social tasks here

4.You can now leave your sim at the neighbours town and go back to your town by clicking on the green world symbol with the arrow (they will stay as long as they are busy):

image5.They will show up first on your simtracker back home, there you can click on them to go back to your neighbours:

image6.When your sim has finished the task you will need to go back to your neighbours town to either start them on a new task or bring them home which can be done by clicking the green world symbol while they aren’t busy or by clicking on the house with the arrow in it symbol on the simtracker:

image

When you go back to the neighbours town to see them when they finish a task they will return home if they have been in a neighbours town too long


Frequently Asked Questions:

How long do they stay at a neighbours?
They will stay there about a day unless they are busy or you don’t check on them, then they will stay longer.

Can they return from a neighbours on their own?
No, you need to go back to the neighbours to bring your sim home.

Will my neighbour know I was in their town?
Your neighbour won’t know you have visited them, any action you do in their town will not affect their game.

Help! My neighbours can’t see an item in my town, why is that?
They can’t see it because they aren’t seeing the most up to date version of your game, you need to connect to the cloud for them to see this version of your game.

Do you have a list of Social Tasks?
Yes, you can find that post here!

The Sims Freeplay- The Cloud: Saving the Game

Connecting to the cloud is how you save your game so if you ever have a problem with your device or want to change devices knowing how to connect to the cloud will stop you from losing your game, for example, if you wanted to change your device you would be able to get your game onto that new device within 7 days and you won’t have to start all over again- it is a good idea to do it everyday just as a back up in case! (it does automatically do it if you connect to the party boat but it is always useful to know how to do it yourself)

Connecting to the Cloud

To connect to the cloud you need to firstly be connected to Facebook, Apple, Game Center or Google Play Games (how to connect to Facebook and Game Center are covered in my Adding Neighbours post as both these can be used to add neighbours)

Sign in with Apple is a new option for Apple products so you can sign in with your Apple ID (on the settings screen- see under ‘uploading’ in this post- click on the key button (bottom right) to sign in with your Apple ID:

Sorry I no longer have an Android so I cannot show you how to connect your game to Google Play Games (this is where you download your games from)

Uploading

Once connected go into settings in the game (click on the green button with 3 white dots on it) you will then see these options:

Click on the cloud button and you will see this window appear:

image

Click upload save data and your game will be saved

Click here to watch my video on how to save to the cloud

Help! My neighbours can’t see an item in my town, why is that? They can’t see it because they aren’t seeing the most up to date version of your game, you need to connect to the cloud for them to see this version of your game.

Downloading

If you are transferring to a different device you can select on that device from in the game ‘download save data’ and you will have your game back as long as you are connected to the same account that you saved your game from on your other device:

20150311-141049.jpg

NOTE: if you are planning to go from an Android to an Apple or the other way around and you want to keep your game, make sure you save to Facebook as this is the only option to save available on both devices.

Unable to connect to the cloud?

If you can’t connect click on the Facebook icon in the settings and it will probably say unknown user so log out and log in again and it should work! If it still isn’t working you may want to contact the makers to see if there is anything they can do to fix this for you, this post explains how to contact them if you are unsure.

The Sims Freeplay- Adding Neighbours

Only have access to Another Sim Town? Find out what it contains here!


If you are playing on an Apple product you have the choice between Game Center and/or Facebook to add neighbours (although they have now made the Game Center option difficult) and if you are on an Android you will have the option of Facebook only as Google+ is no longer available.


Apple and Androids: Connecting The Sims Freeplay to Facebook

To add a neighbour using Facebook you need to have your game connected to your account, to do this log into the Facebook app then go to settings in the Sims Freeplay (the green button with 3 white dots in it) and you will see these options appear:

Click on the key button (bottom right) and it will say not signed in, press the green log in button and it will go to Facebook then come back to the game and you should see this (check that it is the right account):
image

NOTE: my Facebook account has been suspended so I am unable to add anymore players, sorry!

Facebook Adding

Once connected, when you add a friend on Facebook, if they play The Sims Freeplay and have connected their game they will be added to your party boat automatically.


Apple: Game Center Adding

NOTE: as of iOS 10 the Game Center app has been removed you can still add neighbours but they have made it a lot harder to do, you now have to iMessage the person you want to add or you can also allow nearby people to add you from Settings > Game Center > Allow nearby people to add you through WiFi or Bluetooth. If you don’t have iOS 10 or above the steps below should still work but you may find players on iOS 10 or above are unable to accept your requests.

Game Center is an app on your Apple product, it should already be on your device.
Open it up and you will see 5 tabs at the bottom of the screen

Me, Friends, Games, Challenges and Turns

  • In the me tab you can set your username, this is what people use to add you, you can also change your photo here.
  • In the friends tab you will see all of your friends you already have and any friend requests you have
  • In the games tab you will see all the games you play and all of your achievements

To add a player you need to know their username or email address, once you do go to the friends tab and in the top right hand corner there is a +

This will open up a new window, in the ‘to’ box write the players username or email and in the big box below you can add a message to that person.

 Once they have accepted your request if they have the game they will appear in your party boat.

You can have 500 friends on Game Center but only 100 appear in your party boat.

NOTE: as of iOS 10 the Game Center app has been removed you can still add neighbours but they have made it a lot harder to do, you now have to iMessage the person you want to add or you can also allow nearby people to add you from Settings > Game Center > Allow nearby people to add you through WiFi or Bluetooth.


Androids: Google Play Games Adding

Google+ has been removed so you can no longer add players this way on an Android (Facebook is your only option) but you can still save your game with Google Play Games


Deleting a Neighbour

To delete a neighbour you just need to delete them from Facebook and/or Game Center

Help! My neighbours can’t see an item in my town, why is that?

They can’t see it because they aren’t seeing the most up to date version of your game, you need to connect to the cloud for them to see this version of your game.


 Please note it can take a while for neighbours to appear in your party boat after adding so be patient!


If you would like some new neighbours you can find lots on the neighbours needed page
