The Sims Freeplay- Missing Claus Quest

Firstly sorry for the late post, my internet stopped working on the 9th and it has just been fixed. The Missing Claus Quest is back as a Player Favourite Quest which means you will be able to start this quest between the 11th-17th November to get the full 13 day time limit. These are optional so you will need to click on the green play button next to the title of the event in the active tasks tab to start:

There are 13 sets of goals to complete in the 13 day time limit so there is a set of goals to complete each day, if you complete the quest in the time limit you win the gorgeous Farmhouse template!

If you completed this quest last time you won’t get it again, if you started it last time unfortunately you will have to start from the beginning this time (these are the times from the last time this quest was available, let me know if anything has changed and I will update this post)

You may have to wait between completing each set so you complete one set per day, after completing a set you have to wait for a certain amount of time before being able to continue with the quest unless you are behind then you will move straight onto the next set once you have completed the previous. (sometimes when these quests return you don’t have to wait you will just move straight onto the next set of goals)

Watch my step by step walkthrough video of this quest here (this video is from the first time this quest was available)

TIP: there are lots of tasks that need to be done more than once, use the maximum sims you can to complete the task, if you just use one sim you will run out of time

You will be able to build the Farmhouse on a standard or premium residence, the first one is free, after that the cost in simoleons depends on how many houses you have already built

NOTE: it is not possible to build a house with the veranda (roofed porch) it is currently only available on the Farmhouse

The only difference between the Farmhouse on a standard and a premium is the garden and one different object in the basement. You still get the chicken coop, table and barn on the premium like you do on the standard, you just get an extra picket fenced area on the premium:

The standard comes with a candle in the basement and the premium has a lamp to match the one on the other table:

I think I prefer this house on the standard rather than the premium as I don’t think we really need the extra picket fenced area that you get with the premium

Watch my house tour of the Farmhouse here:

You also unlock the A- Frame Roofing which is a new style of roofing for all your houses:

The Sims Freeplay Levels: I Need Your Help!

Hi everyone, I am currently putting together a catalogue of all the items available in buy mode on The Sims Freeplay including images and how to unlock them (either by levelling up or completing an event) It has been a long process and taken me a few months to get to this point but I am getting there! The issue is I am missing a few of the level up screenshots (see image below) so I don’t know what level some items unlock at

I am missing Level 41 so if anyone does screenshot the level up screens, showing all items you unlock (not just the first lot of items) I would really appreciate if you can email or tweet them to me so I can finish this post:

Thank you!

EA Play!

I’m back in America! This time I am in Hollywood, Los Angeles for EA Play!

EA Play allows players to get hands on with upcoming EA games such as the latest Need for Speed, FIFA 18 and of course I will be getting my first chance to play The Sims Mobile which I cannot wait for!

If you have got a ticket to the event then come and say hi! If not, the event will be broadcast live on ea.com so if you can’t be there in person you can still check out what is going on as well as find out about the upcoming EA games! I’ll post all about it when I get back including hopefully some footage of The Sims Mobile and my first thoughts.

Replies to comments will be a bit slow while I am away but I’ll do my best to stay connected with you all!

San Francisco!

In case you haven’t seen from my Twitter or missed the notification on my home page I am currently in San Francisco at the EA headquarters!
I arrived on Monday after my first ever flight (11 hours= boredom!) and with the 8 hour time difference it is currently Thursday and I am still suffering from jet lag- I keep waking up at 3am and my body thinks it’s time for lunch! However I can’t really complain as I am having an amazing time here! The weather has been like Summer and I actually got sunburnt on the way to the Golden Gate Bridge- anyone from England will know that October is coooooold!

This trip is an amazing experience and I feel so privileged to be apart of this and I cannot thank EA enough for this opportunity. I have loved meeting people who are as passionate as me about gaming!

So obviously I haven’t had the chance to really play my game yet for the Halloween update but I know the quest is the Night of the Candy Monster Quest again like last year- (https://thegirlwhogames.wordpress.com/2015/10/21/the-sims-freeplay-night-of-the-candy-monsters-quest-halloween-2015/) this post may be slightly different to this years but I will update if possible and create a post on what has changed in this latest update as soon as I can once I return home! Time to start my last full day here before I start heading home 🙂

 

UPDATE: This years Night of the Candy Monster Quest post is now available here! I haven’t completed it myself yet but the first three sets of goals are up to date, if you notice any changes in the last two sets please comment on the post and I will update it- thank you!
