The Sims Freeplay- Life Dreams & Legacies Quest

20140302-133445.jpgThis quest unlocks from level 26, it gives you the ability for your sims to age automatically and die. And the alien Osiris is back again!

If you complete within 7 days you will unlock the singing salmon that when listened to makes your sims inspired. Time is very tight with this quest, as we have come to expect with this game now. You can still complete the quest after the time is up.

It is a good idea to have an adult sim to sacrific when completing this quest, and you need to have space avaliable for 2 sims because the last task is to add a baby (for some reason the sim you sacrific is still counted) and you wont be able to if you have too many sims.

But remember completing the goal ‘advance an adult sim age’ will mean that your sims will start to age and die on their own from this point.

Times may vary depending on the star rating an item has.

  • Call a friend- 3 minutes
  • Send invitations on a computer- 4 hours 48 minutes
  • Send 5 sims to snow park
  • Tend the bar in the snow park (stay tending the bar for the next task)
  • Order a cocktail at cabin (snow park)- 30 seconds (you can only do this task when someone is tending the bar)
  • Ask Osiris about new inventions- 14 hrs 20 minutes
  • Open the age controller
  • Advance an adult sims age (your sims will start to automatically age and die from this goal)
  • Send a sim to the park
  • Examine the glowing orb- 1 day
  • Give the orb to a senior
  • Open the life dreams menu
  • Fulfil a life dream- 6 hours 24 minutes (there is a glitch on some players game where you won’t see any life dreams in the menu, I can’t do much about technical issues but EA have been told so hopefully will sort it.)
  • Have a senior ask Osiris for help- 5 minutes
  • Tap on the beach or arcade on island
  • Have a senior ask Osiris for help- 20 seconds
  • Fulfil a life dream- 6 hours 24 minutes
  • Have a scientific breakthrough in the bath- 7 hours 12 minutes
  • Debunk theory of relatively while drinking tea- 10 hours 40 minutes
  • Have a senior grow pumpkins- 1 day (works with an adult too, can be started early)
  • Bake gingerbread sims- 6 hours (again works with adult and can be started early)
  • Complete a cycle of life (goodbye senior sim!)
  • Have 4 sims in one house
  • Be nice to a sim- 1 minute
  • Have a baby- 1 day (if you wait you can have a baby for free instead of paying 3LPs)


Is the prize worth it? Firstly it costs 8LPs unless you unlocked it in the past then its free but it does make it so much easier to keep your sims in a good mood but you have to wait dor it to recharge before you can use it again. Although its good I wouldn’t get stressed out trying to complete this quest in time over it! You can find it in the decorations section.

I have created a tips post about this update which can be found here, so if you have any problems with this update read the post first, it may help:

Thanks for reading!

Please note this quest was correct at time of writing, it may change.

  1. I am stuck at 48% on the life quest! I need to fulfill a life dream but none show under the tab! I have gone to every wardrobe to see if there is a personality tab! which I can not find… 4 sims have passed on I don’t know where the original orb from the park is as it disappeared when I tried to assign it, I understand you are not a tech but I have looked every where for answers hoping you may have heard of a fix for these issues.. I had a singing salmon from a while back so not finishing that part of the quest doesn’t bother me, I just can’t move forward with the others with no life dreams! Please help!

    • I have the same Exact problem. The orb was never given, there are no legacy quests and I’m stuck at 48% also. I hope that EA will give back the time we waste waiting for the corrections.

      • Yes, that is what I am hoping too, I have slowed my actions on the sims to keep them from getting older and dying, 4 sims have died, none held the orb, who knows when this will be fixed! Funny though they are quick to take your money, but no so much on fixing something that is wrong with their game…

  2. I have always tried to start tasks early but everytime the task comes up it doesnt say that i have completed it. When exactly should i start a task so it is completed when it comes up?

    • I will give you an example: if you are on a task to have a movie marathon that will take you eight hours, put that task on in house 1, if the next task is to bake gingerbread for 6 hours you can start that at the same time in house 2 BUT make sure you do not go to that house before you have completed the movie marathon task. You need to complete that task then you will get the goal to bake gingerbread at this point you can then go to house 2 and you will have completed that task.
      Some tasks can’t be completed early though. Hope this helps!

  3. Just starting the life dreams destiny quest how do u open the aging machine?
    He throws the pulsar up and then dances don’t see a button to open it?

    • Its not a machine, its a button, you need to open the menu on the right hand side, where you previously found your sims jobs, hobbies and relationships, the button you need to open will pulse

  4. I just started the goal and I’m on call a friend. I’m going to be away so I won’t be able to do the quests. Will my sims age and die while im gone or does that only happen once you finish the goal?

  6. I have a preteen who appears to be in mourning, but I don’t have an option to reminisce or grieve. He is also fully inspired. Any ideas?

      • Other people started mourning at the same time as him, but they all had options to grieve or reminisce. He’s the only one who didn’t and still doesn’t. No one else is in mourning at the moment though. He’s really starting to get on my nerves now. I may have to kill him off!!

    • I have the same problem. He won’t grieve with anyone. This is the 2nd time and now he & his sister have been orphaned. It takes him about 24 hours to work it out on his own.

  7. What quest is AFTER the life dreams and legacies quest because I completed it a while ago and I’m starting to miss doing quests

  8. I’m not sure how to complete the life cycle? I keep trying with the Sim I’ve aged, but I can’t send her home because it’s saying that she’s doing a Hand Shake in the Sim selector menu.

    • why do you need to send her home? is the grim reaper hanging around, there should be a bubble over the sims head that you can just click or go into the age menu and see if you can age them from their

  9. I have the Toddler life quest “I want Princess & Calculators read to me again and again”. I see your answer above to buy the toddler bookshelf, however I cannot find it. Help!

  10. Have a baby- 1 day (if you wait you can have a baby for free instead of paying 3LPs)
    I don’t understand this statement. What do you mean by wait and I can have a baby for free? How do I do that? Pls help! Thanks!

  11. I currently have the glitch that would allow me to make unlimited sims… however my LPs all disappeared when I made one. I was able to reload my version saved in the cloud and got my LPs back, but I’m worried that when I have to have a baby they’ll get eaten by the glitch again. Anyone know if that’s the case?

  12. First of all I want to say that this is a fantastic game, considering it’s free. Really appreciate the work that EA has done on this game.

    I have one small piece of advice for newer users: be sure to consider what kind of game user you are before completing this quest. If you enjoy slower, imaginative play that involves things like building “relationships” or making creative new home designs, in addition to some goals, then it may be best not to complete the update. If you like running your Sims in work-camps all day and night to achieve quests and LP and orbs, then by all means update.

    My view: I had played the same sims for about a year and a half before this update and created whole worlds around each Sim. I even spent time working on homes that “fit” them. Now that I have completed it, they are all aging and dying and being replaced by Sims with short life spans in which to complete goals and to develop skills. They have little time to develop the relationships necessary to churn out more kids for the next generation. You can keep them at the same stage, but it costs a lot of LP. A lot of LP that you may not have since adding new Sims suddenly costs LP too and since your lower skill set in Sims makes it harder to win competitions. You can use the orb to keep them at their age, but you lose it permanently!

    It’s cool to have the sames aging, but the fact that preventing their aging is not easy (unless you stop your Sims’ from completing actions) is a bit frustrating, especially since they don’t age symmetrically (one of my Sims’ children is now about to reach grampy-hood before her parents). Had I known what the new update would contain, I probably wouldn’t have bothered to finish the quest.

    Hopefully that is useful information for someone else.

    • This is REALLY helpful! Thanks! I haven’t reached this goal yet (but should soon), but I’ve been wondering why I would want my Sims to die. Isn’t it all about having the Sims do hobbies, living in their houses, wearing certain clothes, going to work, talking to other Sims, etc.? I don’t understand the benefit of this quest.

      • The only reason is that it keeps the game new and refreshing, I do like that you have new sims appear all the time but I know it is annoying having to redo hobbies, relationships, careers and doing up houses perfect for them!

  13. What will happen if I never complete the task as I had already completed saddle up and hidden unicorn so now this task has started but what will happen if I dont complete it

  14. My toddler has a life dream for a book to be read to her. However, when I click on the toddler reading center to do so it says action has failed because I must have an adult to complete the action. There is an available adult in the house with her, but she won’t read to her! What to do?!?!?

  15. I am on the last part of the teenager quest, and None of my sims have personalities. Also i just added a new sim and still the personality icon didnt show still. And also I was wondering after ageing a preteen to a teenager do the teenagers age to adults by themselves? Or does the little ring by them show and age them automatically, Im just a little confused about this update.

  16. I’m almost done with this quest and this has helped me so much! Thank you for this site. I think it should be noted that the times are off (as they do with updates of updates – especially when there is a glitch) and a senior now has to grow the pumpkins. That’s where I at now and had another sim growing pumpkins …didn’t work.

    • thanks :)
      okay thats for the information, I am in the process of redoing the quests so I will be able to change the times when I get there- it is quite annoying when they constantly change the times with every update, it does make it quite difficult to keep up! :/

  17. Sorry! I thought I had finished my comment but I hadn’t!!!!!! Sorry!!!!!
    Continued-am and 12pm which I have done before and is probably one of the easiest tasks but it won’t say I’ve done it when I have. I have repeated this task lots of times using different fridges and even making a meal with a microwave (just in case though I know its with as fridge) but it still won’t work!!! What am I doing wrong!?!?:-\

  18. Hello

  20. Hello, Firstly, I love site and have found it really helpful.However, I just wanted to warn people that to have the baby at the end the sims have to be married and it was one of my married sims that died :-( …. So don’t makemy mistake and have the sim you sacrifice a married one. Thanks

  21. I’d just like to thank you for all of your help with The Sims Freeplay. I have referred to your blog countless times. I have chosen not to do the Life Dreams & Legacies quest because I don’t want to kill off my Sims. (I don’t feel like that’s the point of the game.) I would not have been able to make that decision without first consulting your blog to know what was coming. I realize this means I will not be able to complete any future quests, such as the cooking ones that were released today. This will be a real bummer when holiday quests are released, but I’d rather not kill off my Sims. (Here’s to hoping that one day EA will let people skip that quest!) I’m sure I’ll continue to refer to your blog, but it looks like my quest journey ends here, so I wanted to say thank you.

  22. First of all, I can’t thank you enough for this blog; it has been extremely helpful. :) One question- if I don’t want my sims to age and die, can’t I just refrain from doing this quest? Besides not getting the prize, will I miss out on anything important if I ignore the quest?

  23. Looks like the worst update EVER! For the aging part! Don’t want sims to die oh well! Thx for blogging this though!

  24. I completed the life dreams quest and now I’m in the process of completing my toddler’s life dreams. Her life dream is to ride on the swings. I have unoccupied adults in the house as I attempt to complete this quest, but it keeps saying I need an adult to supervise even though there are many available. What should i do? It won’t let me complete the quest.

  25. I have a toddler stuck watching tv. It shows her as 100% complete, and 0 seconds to finish, but it won’t let her finish. :-( Any suggestions?
