The Sims Freeplay- Outdoor Event


You have 10 days to complete the survivalist timed hobby from the 13th July to unlock 7 outdoor packs

NOTE: You need to have built the campgrounds and completed the vacationers guide to the great outdoors quest so you can do the survivalist hobby (I really wouldn’t bother trying to complete if you haven’t even built the camgrounds yet, I’m sure this event will be back again!)

You need to complete the survivalist hobby 7 times (find all 12 badges 7 times) within the 10 days to unlock all 7 outdoor packs. You get a new outdoor pack each time you complete it.

If you haven’t done the Survivalist hobby yet you will find the details here


You need to firstly accept this quest, it will remove the badges 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- the timer will still start if you click no

Once you have said yes, start the hobby!


-have more than one sim working on it if you can! You can only have one sim competing the hobby at your campgrounds but you can send a sim to a neighbours
-if you are not a level 6 yet it may take you longer to find all badges, speed up with LPs if possible

-the cooking hobby is great for earning LPs to speed up timed events (wait for the timer to reach 1 hour 59 minutes and you will only need to use 1LP instead of 2!)

-remember to click start new collection at the top of the survivalist hobby collections list once you have got all the badges to be able to complete the collection again to unlock the next pack

-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.

12 badges= 1 outdoor pack

Only one sim can do this hobby at a time.

TIP: to complete in the time limit you can send another sim to a neighbours town to do the hobby

What survivalist badges are there to collect?


What do you win?

The first time you have 7 days to complete to unlock the picnic basket, this can be found at the picnic area at the campgrounds, the option is have a picnic- 10 minutes and two sims can do this at one time


If you don’t complete in time you still unlock the suspension bridge, lookout post and bird feeders

Suspension bridge- build the bridge to unlock the next area of the campground to clean up and then you can start the storyteller hobby



Further times you receive 3LPs

I can’t find one of the badges, any tips?

The only advice I can really give you is to keep going, that is the only way you can find them- there is no trick to it, its completely random.

Is it worth using the 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

TIP: it would be cheaper to wait until they have been doing the hobby for half an hour because once it reaches 1h 59m 59s you can then use 1LP to complete instead of 2

How do I start the collection again?

Once you have finished the collection you can click start a new collection on the list to start over.
