The Sims Freeplay- Hobbies: Diving


Your preteen, teen and adults sims will be able to complete the diving hobby once you complete the It’s All Going Swimmingly Quest to build the swim center, once built your sims can click on the diving boards and select one of the options:

  • Brief Leap- 10 minutes
  • Aquatic Lunges- 1 hour
  • Disciplined Dive- 12 hours
  • All Day Dive – 1 day

Once you complete the collection for the first time you will be able to place diving boards in your pools at home to complete the hobby there.

After the time has passed come back and click the exclamation mark above your sims head to find one of the diving medal collectibles. Every time you complete one of the options above your diving hobby skill level up percentage will increase, once you reach 100% you will level up, there are 6 levels. You need to reach level 6 to be able to unlock all of the diving medal collectibles, once unlocked you will be able to find them.

The table below shows the level up percentage for each option:

This may change in future updates

 LEVEL  10 minutes 1 hour  12 hours 1 day
1-2 4% 25% 150% 299%
2-3 3% 22% 133% 266%
3-4 2% 16% 100% 199%
4-5 1% 8% 50% 99%
5-6 4% 25% 49%

For example, you would need to do the 12 hour option 4 times to reach level 6 from level 5

NOTE: it says 150% but you will start from 0% at level 2

The next table shows you for each level what diving medal collectibles you unlock (so you can then find those ones too) and also the level up reward that a second and future sims will receive when they level up in this hobby:

1 Oafish Sim Tsunami, Twist, Flip and Drench and Tidal Backward Spin are unlocked in the hobby collection
2 Maladroit Silver Bomb is now unlocked in the hobby collection 250XP
3 Stage Diver Tilt-O-Sault and Triple Pickle Flip are now unlocked in the hobby collection 500XP
4 Intermediate Fist from Heaven and Spiral Spill are now unlocked in the hobby collection S750
5 Flipper Golden Reverse Spin and Silent Nibiru are now unlocked in the hobby collection 10,000 Town Value
6 Master Fancy Flip and Twist and Poseidon are now unlocked in the hobby collection.

You can now complete the collection!


NOTE: only the first sim completing this hobby needs to get to level 6 to unlock all the collectibles, future sims will be able to find any collectible even if they are only on level 1 in this hobby (and they can do the shortest option to try and find the collectibles quicker!)

You won’t find a new collectible each time, you will get repeats, if this happens just keep going, you will find them eventually! If it is still taking too long you can use the lucky spin on the row where you cannot find the item, this will cost LPs, when you click on the LP button it will clear the row and give you a random collectible on that row so you aren’t guaranteed a new item (you will get back any other collectibles you already had in that row) Need to earn some LPs to use the lucky spin?


The completed diving collection is shown below, once you complete the collection you need to click ‘start a new collection/dive again’ at the top of the hobby collection screen, this clears the board so you can complete the collection again to earn more rewards (you will only get the option to restart the hobby collection when you have completed the collection):

You will earn XPs when you complete a row in the hobby but to complete the collection you need to find all 12 of the collectibles

The rewards for completing this collection are diving boards, lifeguard chair and 3LP:

  • The first time you complete the collection you unlock diving boards for home pools, so you can complete the hobby at home instead of at the swim center (these can be found in the pool items section of the home store):

  • The second time unlocks a lifeguard chair for you to use around the pools in your gardens (it costs S4,000 and can be found in the pool items section of the home store)

  • From the third time onwards each time you complete the collection you will earn 3LP
