The Sims Freeplay- Life Dreams & Legacies Quest


LEVEL UNLOCKS: 26 UNLOCKS: automatic ageing, personalities and orbs TIME LIMIT: 5 days PRIZE: singing salmon

If you have not unlocked this quest yet it is because previous quests have to be completed first.

SMFR-IOSF_EN_Logo_R8If you complete within 5 days you will unlock the singing salmon that when listened to makes your sims inspired. You can still complete the quest after the time is up. You will unlock the ability to build new places; pet park, arcade, beach, carnival and pet salon once you complete this quest.

It is a good idea to have an adult sim to sacrifice when completing this quest.

  1. Hi! First, I would like to say thank you so much for these posts, they’re really thorough and helpful. Second, when you click on the pet park/other things do you have to buy them, too?

  2. When the time comes of death for my sims do i have to kill them or can i just let them hang around?

  3. Can your new Sims have the same name as Sims who have died? Thanks in advance!

  4. Is there a way to delay the start of the quest other than not finishing the one before?

    Thank you for your diligence with this blog. You are the first and, so far, the last place I go for information.

  5. Sorry for the previous comment. I haven’t started the quest yet, but I wanted to know what happens after a sim dies, does it just disappear completely or is the a grave? Or a graveyard?
    Also I wanted to know if you think that i’ll get another chance to unlock the Latin Villa since i didn’t collect all the trophies in time.

  6. How many sims did you have when you started the quest? Was it hard losing your sims? I’ve had mine for years, I don’t know if I can watch them die. I’m writing EA a letter

  7. Hello~ Is there way to ask a sim to move out? Because I had Sim 1 and Sim 2 living together, but then I wanted Sim 2 to move in with Sim 3 in another house, so I had Sim 3 ask Sim 2 to move in with her, but instead Sim 3 moved in with Sim 1 and 2. I have three people in one house, and though I know you can have like 4 sims living together, I’m planning on pairing them up to get married so I’d like each couple to live in their own house.

  8. Is there a way you can change your seniors life dream?

  9. Hey, does the new baby cost some LP:s?? Sorry about my bad english!

  10. If I don’t complete any of the goals in the quest, will my sims still age and die?

  11. Is there a way my sim won’t have to pass away

    • Yes you need to get a platinum orb (this involves a sim completing their life dreams to get a bronze, then giving that bronze to another sim to get it to a silver, then that silver to another sim to make it gold then gold to platinum) so 4 sims have to complete life dreams and pass on to save one sim

  12. Hi I’m on the bird feeding quest at the moment. And I just wanted to know weather or not I should finish this quest. I love my sims sooooooooo much. I can’t even think about them dying! It makes me really sad. And also death in sims freeplay sounds more like a burden than anything. What has your expirience been with the automatic ageing? Is it worth it? Thanks!

    • I don’t have a problem with the dying anymore, I have got used to it but if you really don’t want your sims to die then just stay on the bird feeding quest for a while, you can always complete it and do the life dreams quest if you ever decide you want them to die.

  13. Is it worth it to give a personality/life dream to a sim that is already an adult when you completed the quest? I’m guessing they wont have time to complete enough to gain an orb.

  14. If I unlock the quest but don’t do any of the tasks, do my Sims still age?

  15. How long does a silver orb pause ageing? And is it worth pausing or should I wait until I have a platinum orb?

  16. Your posts have all been amazing! I was just wondering what the process is in regards to the ageing. I assume all sims age from baby upwards so my question is; How often do they age?

    And to others reading this, I personally don’t have a problem with my sims dying as I guess I can always “reinvent” them.

    • Thanks!
      Sims don’t have to age from babies, if they start as an adult they will become a senior when they are ready, this is how long each stage is:
      Baby- 24 hours
      Toddler- 3 days
      Preteen- 5 days
      Teenager- 7 days
      Adult- 18 days
      Senior- 10 days

  17. Do you know if the time has changed for how long your sim will stay a baby? It’s going to be hard to complete the Musical Expression hobby if the baby ages into a toddler after 24 hours.

  18. Do you have any suggestions for when people go on vacation? I am going camping for 2 weeks and will not have cell reception. Will all my sims die?

  19. I have 34 sims at level 44 I adopted quite a few and am worried about last task having a baby. Any suggestions?

  20. Hi…I just like to thank you. Ever since I found out your blog I got to finish every quest on time and win the prizes. Currently I’m doing the “In stiches” quest and I decide not to finish it yet cause I dont want my sims to die yet. The tip that you gave to earn LP’s by doing cooking hobby helps me alot. Thank you again :)

  21. Once you start the quest will all your sims start aging? Or just the one..and if so how long is the average life span of a sim?

  22. Thank you so very much as I have been so worried! I love your blog and come here daily. I tell all my friends who play sims to come here for information as you are the most informative and the best!

  23. When I get to the “have a baby” part which needs a day to accomplish, what if I’m on level 36 and another sim would be unlocked on level 38 and we all know it would take forever for me to get to level 38, chances are I wouldn’t get the prize anymore, right? Unless I use up like 70 LPs? Help please.

  24. When you finish this quest, is the wedding rings free or still expensive?

  25. Hi! My adult’s orb is saying something like “upgrade to a golden orb”. I know there are gold orbs, but any idea what a golden one is? Thanks!

  26. Would you advise doing this quest? I don’t want my Sims to age but I want the pet park and the beach!

  27. How long is the life-span of a sim? (From birth to death.)

  28. hey I was wondering if u had to bake a birthday cake, or can u just age them up?

  29. Do you think it is best to give a personality right from birth? When I completed the quest it only took my senior two times doing the life dream to get a bronze orb, but now I have a toddler who has been doing the life dream for ages now and she is only at 7%! Or was it just quicker for the senior during the quest?

    Thanks so much for your blog, it is so helpful!

  30. Hi. I wanted to say I really like your posts. They tell me what tasks are ahead. I know you say you aren’t good with words but I think you’re amazing. Plus you include whether if you think a prize is or isn’t worth it. Thank you for these posts and I hope you put up some more soon! Thanks for helping me and other simmers!😀

  31. Hi when you finish all the quests what happens

  32. When I finish Life Dream’s quest, can adults die before being a senior?

  33. I am doing the basement quest where I need to play with a pet but I can’t build the pet store without doing Life dreams and legacies quest which I haven’t unlocked yet so I am now stuck.. have you any ideas of how to get a pet without unlocking the life dreams and legacies quest or even how to unlock that quest?

  34. Hi! I was wondering what quest I need to finish to unlock this one? I’m at level 34 and is just doing the Nanny Knows Best Quest. Thanks so much!

  35. Do I need a cake to age a sim during the quest? I’m almost done with the In Stitches Quest, just wondering if I need to start baking a cake ;) Tia

  36. Hey there.. I just wanted to ask, if my senior dies and leaves behind an orb, can I pass it on to a toddler instead of a baby so they can rank it up to a higher tier, or will that pause the toddler’s timer instead? Thanks! Love your blog, btw. :)

  37. I’ve looked everywhere and I can find the pulsing remote for aging. Is there a certain place where it should be?

  38. Hi! I was just gonna say that I don’t know if this is because of the different star ratings, but when I had to send out the invites it told me it would take 7 hours. On your blog though, it says 4 minutes for the 3 star rating on the computer, while mine was 2 stars. If this has changed then I just wanted to let you know, to prevent others with the confusion. Thanks!

  39. Hi…. Was wondering what happens to homes once a sim passes? Can you just add a new sim to an existing home? Does it cost money? Thanks!

  40. Could someone help me?? I want to finish this quest but they just say that my houses are full and that i cant have a baby? Why is that??

  41. Hi, i almost complete this life dreams and legacies quest and was wondering is this the last quest for the sims freeplay?

  42. I would just like to say that send invitations is now 6.5 hours and ask about invention is 14.5 hours
