Need for Steed (Unlocks Stables)

 
2016 Update

From time to time Quests get updated, so we have gone through this Quest again with another account an updated the task list below, while some of the tasks have stayed the same, we have noticed that the timings have changed a lot. Your actual completion times may vary slightly from the ones we have due to different equipment levels and such.

Complete this Quest to gain Horses and unlock a new area to interact with them. If you can complete it within the time limit (2 days) you get a cool rainbow powered Unicorn painting too!

You should have Mystery Island unlocked before you attempt this task. Also, be sure you are not in the middle of building another building as you will need to build a Stables during this task.

1) The first task is to spot Horses with a Telescope. You can grab a telescope from the Promotions R Us Store for about 3450 SImoleans. The action itself is quite short, about five minutes.

2) Go to Mystery Island

3) Spot the Overgrown Stables - Tap on the stables icon near the volcano in the Mystery Island

4) Go back to a house and call the mysterious number (1m 40 secs)

5) Read a horse care manual. You can find one of these on a bookshelf. If you don't have one, you'll need to buy one from the living room section. (9h 30m)

6) Call the mysterious number again (4 mins)

7) Find a locksmith. Head over to a computer and lock for a locksmith on the Internet (6m 24 seconds)

8) Build the Stables. Head back over to the stables in the Mysterious Island (9hr 30 mins)

9) Call a SIm to the Stables (instant)

10) Clean up the mess in front of the yard (4 mins). Just find the oil drum that is lying down, tap that and select the remove option.

11) Have four Sims at the Stables - So just call four sims in total to the stables area.

12) Clean up the mess in the yard with your Sims. There are four other Items in the stable yard which you need to repair or remove, select each item and your four sims will get to work. It's about 10 hours for the Job in the bath, and you can even get started earlier that reaching this stage of the task.

Original Content

The Horse and Stables expansion to FreePlay in addition to adding Horses - and the Stables - also adds some new hobbies and Hobby Activities tot he game for Teenage and Adult Sims. Very cool that is says Yoda.

Added to the game in May 2014, the expansion is first available to players when they reach Level 11 -- in theory anyway -- but the player must update their game by accessing the App Store, then the Updates Menu, finally tapping the Update for Sims: FreePlay. The update is 537MB in size.

Once the game has been patched with the new expansion content access this the new content is obtained via this unlocking Quest...

As with most of the Hobby and structure special flag Quests, there is a special prize attached to the timer for this Quest -- specifically if the player completes the quest before the expiration of the 7 day timer that is attached to the quest, they will unlock a Rainbow Unicorn Painting -- it seems clear this one was added with girl gamers in mind...

Completing this Quest (whether within the timer or after) unlocks the Stables on Mystery Island, and the Horses that are part of the Stables. The following Quest Line is required and is the path for unlocking the Stables and Horses:

  1. Go for a Drive (3m)
  2. Spot Horses with a Telescope (10h)
  3. Go to Mystery Island (Instant)
  4. Spot the Stables (Instant /Tap it)
  5. Call the Mysterious Phone Number* (30m)
  6. Read the Horse Care Manual (9h)
  7. Call the Mysterious Number Again* (4m)
  8. Look up a Locksmith on Your Computer* (2h)
  9. Build the Stables (Time / Price Varies)
  10. Send a Sim to the Stables (Instant)
  11. Clean Up the Mess in the Front Yard (1h 30m)
  12. Have 4 Sims at the Stables (Instant)
  13. Clean up the Mess in Yard with your Sims (Teen / Adult / Senior - Time Varies)
  14. Watch the Horse Channel* (3h)
  15. Practice Brushing Another Sim (15m)
  16. Encourage a Sim (Adults -- 30m)
  17. Repair Stable (Adults -- Cost = $30K -- 8h)
  18. Call the Stables Owner (5h)
  19. Add a Horse to Stable (10 SP -or- $15K)
  20. Feed the New Horse (30m)




This completes the Mission and fully unlocks the Stables and Horses in your game! Well done you!

There are a number of Mission related to the Stables that may or may not spawn next - it depends on what the point weight is on the outstanding Quests in your queue -- a higher point value in weight might cause a different Quest line to go next - you never can tell...

There special Mission called The Hidden Unicorn -- which unlocks the Show Jumping Hobby -- may (or may not) flag next...

We have grouped the Quests together here but that is no indication that they will actually appear back-to-back -- just saying that YMMV.


- - - - - - - - - - = = = = = @ @ = = = = = - - - - - - - - - -

Horses for the Stables
The following Horses are or will be available upon the completion of this Mission - and the completion of any special requirements for the specific horse. Below is the list, at the time of the completion of this mission, along with cost and special requirements:

  • Dappled Grey ($15,000) 1-Star Horse
  • Patched Brown (10 SP) 1-Star horse
  • Spotted Grey ($30,000) 2-Star Horse (Complete the Ticks Hobby to unlock)
  • Brown (20 LP) 2-Star Horse (Complete the Tricks Hobby to unlock)
  • Light Bay ($50,000) 3-Star Horse (Complete the Vaulting Hobby to unlock)
  • Black (50 LP) 3-Star Horse (Complete the Vaulting Hobby to unlock)
  • Unicorn (100 LP) 3-Star Horse (Complete the Show Jumping Hobby to unlock)


Note that once you have added the first horse - and have had one of your Sims feed it - that will complete the Need for Steed Mission, and will then unlock the next special mission in the game. If you actually look at the Stables Yard you will see that there are two gates - for the two hobbies - that can be triggered to begin their respective missions.

Hobbies and Time Warning
Something that you should also note is the completion of the Need for Steed Mission opens the door for the Life dreams & Legacies Mission - and that is the one that adds the finite life span timers to your Sims. That being the case you should make significant efforts to master ALL of the hobbies BEFORE you do that Quest, since prior to it there are no timers running on your Sims.

Once the timers start running, you are going to want to be careful how you use the time for each Sim, so having the various hobbies that you can have mastered complete is a very good idea.

* Time depends on the quality of the object.

Everything now is updated so the time varies although a trick cat to the whole game is the quality of your furniture for instance anything with 1 Stat beside it takes more time than any object that is 2 or 3 stars

Usually if you have done any cheats or stuff it will double the time for a task say you use a cheat and what would normally be 3 hours will take 15 hours.

No upstairs in the stable.

Try resetting your device.

And that should not have happened - the mission is long and complex and your horses should have stayed in the stable or stable yard.

I am playing Sims with my phone (Samsung Galaxy S3) and I am having a little problem here. My next guest in ''Need for steed'' is to clean the mess in the yard. I have tried all possible things to clean the mess (having 4 Sims, having 8 Sims etc.), but it's not working. I cannot click/press on the oil tank nor the rock or do anything in the stables..
Might you know what's wrong here?

The way that this mission works is you have to completely revive the stables which means clean the mess up - then you get the first level of horse, then work your way up from there. This is all covered in the guide why are you not reading that first?
