The Sims Freeplay- Guide to Seniors

This is just a quick post to tell you about seniors.
image

How do I create a senior?
To be able to age an adult into a senior you need to have completed the seniors quest
You will then be able to bake a birthday cake on a stove which takes a day and costs 5LPs. Once the birthday cake is made click on it and then you can click on your adult and select the option to have birthday, they will then age into a senior. This post explains in more detail birthday cake ageing

If you have completed the life dreams and legacies quest then you no longer need to bake birthday cakes, they will age automatically.

What is next?
They will probably look strange so take them to a wardrobe to change their hair and clothes.
Needs
Hunger- fridge
Bladder- toilet
Energy- bed, chair, coffee machine
Hygiene- shower, bath
Social- talking to another sim, phone
Fun- lots of things including tv and gardening!

If you have completed the life dreams and legacies quest then when your seniors life cycle is up, they will pass into the afterlife.

What hobbies can seniors do?

Can seniors work?

No they can’t.

What else can they do?

Play bingo at the bingo hall on the mysterious island

Pros: Have different hobbies to choose from, can bake and garden.

Cons: They can’t work, they only have a few clothes to choose from and they all look the same!

I don’t see why seniors can’t have dyed hair!

Seniors can interact with sims of all ages! Read the  Relationships post for more details.

Hope this helps!

Thanks for reading!

The Sims Freeplay- Hobbies: Quilting

20140216-163459.jpgThis post will tell you everything you need to know about the quilting hobby.

Who can do quilting?

Only seniors

How can you do quilting?
You will need to buy a quilting kit from promotions r us and place it in your home. You can only do this once you have completed the in stitches quest which can be found here: https://thegirlwhogames.wordpress.com/2014/02/19/the-sims-freeplay-in-stitches-quest/

Where can you do quilting?
At home

What are the quilting options?

  • Work on quilt-4 hours

What are the quilting levels?

  1. Patchwork Mismatcher
  2. Supervised Stitcher
  3. Fabric Handler
  4. Quality Quilter
  5. Sewings’ Secret Weapon
  6. The Needle Master

 

What quilt patchwork pieces are there to collect?
20140603-115306.jpg

20140603-115315.jpg

 

 

 

 

 

 

Level 1 pieces are:

  • In Bloom
  • The Enternal Struggle
  • Rigorous Splendor

Level 2 piece is:

  • Blue Overalls

Level 3 pieces are:

  • Yule be Black
  • Trade Secret

Level 4 pieces are:

  • The Architect
  • Brown Fury

Level 5 pieces are:

  • True Believer
  • All the Kings Men

Level 6 pieces are:

  • The Telltale Heart
  • Alfs Deceit

What do you win?

The first time you complete you unlock the lazy patch chair (costs 10,000), the second time you unlock the patchpouri couch (costs 12,500), the third time you unlock the quiltinator 5000- a bed (costs 15,000). Further completing the set gives you 3LPs.

I can’t find a piece what do I do?

You just need to keep going until you get it, there are no cheats or tricks, it’s completely random.
Is it worth using the lucky spin?

I would say no, it doesn’t give you the one you are missing it just gives you one at random so you will probably just waste LPs

How do I start the collection again?

Once you have finished the collection you can click start collection again at the bottom of the list.

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 25 before you can start this quest

Can I complete this quest even though I am passed level 25?
Yes, you just need to complete all previous quests then this quest will start automatically

The life dreams and legacies is the next quest but I don’t want my sims to die, what should I do?
Stay on this quest, if you don’t complete this quest your sims will not age and die
You can stay on this quest for as long as you want

Read this post if you want to know more about Life Dreams and Legacies

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

Does a senior have to complete these goals?
No, an adult can

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

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

How do I give pizza to another sim?
Just click on a sim and select give pizza

What do you mean when you say a goal can be started early?
Any goal that you can normally do can be started early because you will have access to it and any goal that you can’t normally do you will have to wait until you get the goal to be able to complete it.
The tip with this method is to put the sim doing that action early in a different house that you cannot go to until you get that goal or it will not work

How do I place an easel in my house once I have brought it from the promotions r us store?
You can find it in your inventory under career and hobby items

I don’t get the option to draw out a chess game, why?
Are you using an adult sim and the chess board in the park?

Why don’t I have the option to high five another sim?
Your sims need to be friends to get this option

I don’t have a car or the car dealership built yet, can I get a car without it?
Yes you can build a house that comes with a car, these can be found in my House Guides Part One and Part Two

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

What do I get if I complete this quest in the time limit?
A teddy bear

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 quilting hobby 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


NOTE: Last updated during the baby steps 2015 update.
