Game Tips and Tricks / Sims Freeplay: Building a Life Point Farm
« Last post by Andy on August 03, 2014, 06:30:18 AM »

Sims Freeplay: Building a Life Point Farm




If there is one issue in the Sims Freeplay, it is the lack of Life Points without spending real money to get ahead. Luckily, for the more experienced players this is not an issue. For the new players this can be a daunting task.

Life Points are used for all sorts of things. From completing tasks early, purchasing special items and making your Sim happy with a quick fix. In the beginning you'll want to be very specific what you spend your Life Points on. Until your farm is up and running, Life Points are far, few and in between.

If your new, make sure to try and work through the weekly tasks. Get those gold keys and hold out until you get 10 for the Fortune Box. Also save your Life Points as some of the beginning tasks will require you to purchase items that require Life Points.





Where to start: I prefer a wood working farm. Some people prefer a Ghost Hunting Farm. Let me explain the difference.

Ghost Hunting farms are easy to start, but the items used for Ghost Hunting have a cool down timer. This means you will need to dedicate at least one of your properties for Ghosting Hunting. Fill it with items that allow your Sim to ghost hunt. My issue comes in with the cool down timer and the fact you have to chase the ghosts around trying to tap on them to catch them. So make sure if you go the ghost hunting route have a property that has little to no furniture, one floor and open as much as possible.

Wood Working farms take more time and money to setup. To even access the wood working hobby you have to build the Community Center and the Promotion Center. Start with the Community Center first, then build the Promotion Center next. Build early, it will cost less. As you add additional Businesses, Work Places and Homes to your map the price rises each time for the next structure. Once your Community Center is built, assign one Sim to preform the Wood Working hobby till they reach max rank. Currently that is level 6.[/font]




(A quick note about hobbies. Collect all items and the final reward at
least once to unlock for all sims. This allows any sim to preform the hobby
without being be max level. This is key to build any hobby farm.
)


Once the woodworking hobby is fully unlocked and both buildings are built you're ready to begin. Purchase 10 woodworking benches from the Promotion Center. Pick a house to place them in. I normally add an extra building on the lot just for this. Make the building dimensions at least 8X10. Place 5 benches on either side and use double doors on either end. This will allow your Sims to not trip over each other as they move to the benches. Always use the quick practice which has a 10 minute timer. This allows you the best option for farming Life Points. It also allows you to have your Sims do other things without tying them up for hours. I have my Sims do woodworking between the hours they have to work or preform various weekly tasks.





A few words about spending Life Points. Save them for completing quests on time. Use them sparingly in the beginning. In my opinion the best use is for purchasing new houses. It costs 52 Life Points to purchase the best house that raises your town value the most. Do not start purchasing houses until you have opened all the Businesses and Work Places. This will help insure the best town value increase. The higher your town value the more money you get a day  ;D

General Discussion / Happy birthday America!

Happy Birthday America!





The Birth of American Independence

When the initial battles in the Revolutionary War broke out in April 1775, few colonists desired complete independence from Great Britain, and those who did were considered radical. By the middle of the following year, however, many more colonists had come to favor independence, thanks to growing hostility against Britain and the spread of revolutionary sentiments such as those expressed in Thomas Paine’s bestselling pamphlet “Common Sense,” published in early 1776. On June 7, when the Continental Congress met at the Pennsylvania State House (later Independence Hall) in Philadelphia, the Virginia delegate Richard Henry Lee introduced a motion calling for the colonies’ independence. Amid heated debate, Congress postponed the vote on Lee’s resolution, but appointed a five-man committee–including Thomas Jefferson of Virginia, John Adams of Massachusetts, Roger Sherman of Connecticut, Benjamin Franklin of Pennsylvania and Robert R. Livingston of New York–to draft a formal statement justifying the break with Great Britain.

On July 2nd, the Continental Congress voted in favor of Lee’s resolution for independence in a near-unanimous vote (the New York delegation abstained, but later voted affirmatively). On that day, John Adams wrote to his wife Abigail that July 2 “will be celebrated, by succeeding Generations, as the great anniversary Festival” and that the celebration should include “Pomp and Parade…Games, Sports, Guns, Bells, Bonfires and Illuminations from one End of this Continent to the other.” On July 4th, the Congress formally adopted the Declaration of Independence, which had been written largely by Jefferson. Though the vote for actual independence took place on July 2nd, from then on the 4th became the day that was celebrated as the birth of American independence.


Early Fourth of July Celebrations

In the pre-Revolutionary years, colonists had held annual celebrations of the king’s birthday, which traditionally included the ringing of bells, bonfires, processions and speechmaking. By contrast, during the summer of 1776 some colonists celebrated the birth of independence by holding mock funerals for King George III, as a way of symbolizing the end of the monarchy’s hold on America and the triumph of liberty. Festivities including concerts, bonfires, parades and the firing of cannons and muskets usually accompanied the first public readings of the Declaration of Independence, beginning immediately after its adoption. Philadelphia held the first annual commemoration of independence on July 4, 1777, while Congress was still occupied with the ongoing war. George Washington issued double rations of rum to all his soldiers to mark the anniversary of independence in 1778, and in 1781, several months before the key American victory at Yorktown, Massachusetts became the first state to make July 4th an official state holiday.

After the Revolutionary War, Americans continued to commemorate Independence Day every year, in celebrations that allowed the new nation’s emerging political leaders to address citizens and create a feeling of unity. By the last decade of the 18th century, the two major political parties–Federalists and Democratic-Republicans–that had arisen began holding separate Independence Day celebrations in many large cities.


July 4th Becomes A National Holiday

The tradition of patriotic celebration became even more widespread after the War of 1812, in which the United States again faced Great Britain. In 1870, the U.S. Congress made July 4th a federal holiday; in 1941, the provision was expanded to grant a paid holiday to all federal employees. Over the years, the political importance of the holiday would decline, but Independence Day remained an important national holiday and a symbol of patriotism.

Falling in mid-summer, the Fourth of July has since the late 19th century become a major focus of leisure activities and a common occasion for family get-togethers, often involving fireworks and outdoor barbecues. The most common symbol of the holiday is the American flag, and a common musical accompaniment is “The Star-Spangled Banner,” the national anthem of the United States.
