The Sims Freeplay- Teen Life Event

THIS EVENT IS NOW OVER!


Early Access to Beta Provided by EA/ Firemonkeys- may differ from actual version


This brand NEW event is only here for 7 days from the 27th May! You will need at least one teenager in your town to be able to participate in this event!

To get all 7 new teen furniture and hairstyle packs you need to complete the teen idol hobby collection 7 times! You get a new pack each time you complete it, once you unlock a pack you get to keep it even if you don’t find them all.

NOTE: you need to have completed The Road To Fame Quest AND have a teenage sim to be able to start this event

You are completing the Teen Idol hobby so will need to buy teen idol instruments from the teen section of the home store

You need to firstly accept this quest, it will remove the teen idol notes 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 goal tab

Once you have said yes you now need to complete the collection 7 times in 7 days!

NOTE: previously you could only have 1 teen idol but you can now have up to 5 teens working on this event!


Confused about time limited hobby events? This video explains how they work:


NOTE: YOU NEED TO COMPLETE ALL FIVE ROWS TO GET ONE PACK!!

15 NOTES= COMPLETE COLLECTION AND UNLOCKS 1 PACK


TIPS FOR FINDING THEM ALL IN THE TIME LIMIT:

-have more than one teen working on it- you can have a maximum of 5
-it is easier if you have all the sims in one house, maybe build a room for them so they are all together but you don’t have to!


-you don’t have to level up for this hobby you just need to find all 3 notes on each instrument:

  • first row- keyboard notes (1 hour, 54 minutes or 48 minutes)
  • second row- bass guitar notes (2 hours, 1 hour 50 minutes, 1 hour 40 minutes)
  • third row- drumkit notes (3 hours, 2 hours 40 minutes, 2 hours 20 minutes)
  • fourth row- electric guitar notes (4 hours, 3 hours 40 minutes, 3 hours 10 minutes)
  • fifth row- microphone notes (5 hours, 4 hours 30 minutes, 4 hours)

SELECT THE WRITE NOTES OPTION ON AN INSTRUMENT

to complete quicker have one teen on each instrument if you can! The times shown are for the different star ratings each instrument has, if you buy the 3 star instruments you can find the notes quicker.

-remember to click start new collection on the teen idol hobby collections list once you have got all the pieces
-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.

There is a new element now, from the hobby collection screen you can now use LPs to finish a whole row instead of using the lucky spin to find one at random. The LP price varies depending on the row you are completing and how many you have left to find in that row:

Definitely a great option if you have the LPs to spare and want to complete this event really quickly! BUT you have to complete the previous row before you can use LPs on the next row, this video shows you how this works:


Prizes:

Study Desk Prize Pack- the study desks can be found in the teen section

 

Party Hair Prize Pack– find these in the wardrobe under hair for teenage sims

 

Moody Headphones Prize Pack- find these in the wardrobe under hats for teenage sims

 

Poster Prize Pack– the posters can be found in the teen section

 

Simtone Wallpaper Prize Pack– the wallpaper can be found in the walls section

 

Pro Gamer Prize Pack– the gaming stations can be found in the teen and preteen sections (they are the same two gaming stations in both sections)

 

Bunkbed Prize Pack– the bunkbeds can be found in the teen section

 

This is all the prizes!

YOU CANNOT GET THESE PRIZES IF YOU DO NOT COMPLETE IN THE TIME LIMIT

Thanks for reading!

The Sims Freeplay- Sim Sign and Teen Mansion

Once the Teen Idol Quest has been complete you unlock the sim sign (located next to the estate agency in the town) you need to get it to level 3 by finding the resources to upgrade it.

THERE IS NO TIME LIMIT FOR THIS

What resources do you need?

  • TV Show Cameos
  • Radio Interviews
  • Magazine Photoshoots

How many of each piece do you need for each level?

  • Level 0= 5 of each
  • Level 1= 10 of each
  • Level 2= 15 of each

How do you find the pieces?
Each time you find all 3 notes for the drum kit, guitar and microphone you get a piece of each
Drumkit Notes= 1 TV Show Cameo
Guitar Notes= 1 Radio Interview
Microphone Notes= 1 Magazine Photoshoot
image

Make sure you restart the collection once you have found them all to find them again!

You can also get them randomly when you do actions but be prepared to spend LPs or it will take you a long time to complete the sim sign without them to speed things up!

How many LPs will it cost if you decide to speed up?

  • Level 0= 42 LPs
  • Level 1= 90 LPs
  • Level 2= 135 LPs

Total= 267 LPs

My teens are ready to age but they haven’t completed the sign, what do I do?

Just start a new teen on this hobby and keep going to complete the sign.
Once the sim sign is at level 3 it will be lit up, as shown below:

And then you can build the teen mansion on a premium residence, the first one free! After that they cost simoleons, the price varies depending on how many other houses you have but it is cheaper to build the teen mansion, than to buy an empty plot to build on (as you are paying for each floor)

What does the teen mansion look like?

Swimming Pool

THE FIRST TEEN MANSION IS FREE

If you didn’t unlock the volleyball net on the Its All Going Swimmingly Quest then don’t worry you get one in this house!

Personally I really like this house, I think it is well worth all those LPs I spent trying to complete the sign!

NOTE: teens cannot live in this house on their own even if they are the teen idol unless an adult lives there and they ask the teen to move in then you can move the adult out.

Anyone can live in this house, they don’t have to be the teen idol. It is just a normal house.

Want teens to live alone in this house? Watch this video to find out how to do that:
