The Road to Fame Teen Quest

After completing the Higher Education Quest and giving one of your Preteens a birthday cake you will flag the limited-time quest The Road to Fame - during which your Teen can participate (and as long as you do it within the timer in the game you get some awesome prizes).

Your budding Teen Idol as they begin the long road towards stardom and proving themselves to themselves and the Sim Audience that will vote them into Stardom!
To complete this quest you need to complete the following goals:

  • Buy a Stack of Magazines
    Even if you already own a stack of magazines to complete this part of the quest you need to buy another...
  • Have your Teen read Teen Celebrity Magazine
    Simple enough - have your Teen "use" the Magazine Pile and select Teen Celebrity to read...
  • Make a Teenager watch Funny Cat Videos
    To accomplish this head to the nearest computer with your Teen and have 'em start saying Awww!
  • Send a Teenager to the Park
    A simple trip to the park...
  • Create a Plan to Become Famous
    Once your Teen arrives they need to use the board on the pier to devise their plan, after which they will have unlocked the Keyboard object at the store!
  • Buy a Keyboard from the Home Store
    You can find the Keyboards under the Teens tab - there are 1, 2 and 3 star versions - and you will get the best results (shortest times) from the 3-star just saying...
  • Write Music
    Once you have your Keyboard placed, have your Sim use it to Write Music!
  • Write 3 Pieces of Music
    Now that your Teen has started the Music Hobby they just need to continue it for three more music pieces for the keyboard this part of the quest to unlock the next instrument.
  • Write 6 Pieces of Music
    This does not mean 6 new pieces, it means 6 pieces total -- as in use the Bass Guitar to "write" the three additional pieces that make up the second set of pieces, in order to unlock the Drum Kits in the store. Once you do that you need to purchase a Drum Kit for the next challenge and set.
  • Write Nine Pieces of Music
    As with the previous task this is not 9 new pieces but rather the three new ones for the Drum Kit combined with the six you have already unlocked with the previous instruments. Spending LP is a good idea here as it really does reduce the time it takes for your Teen to play/write the music.
  • Write 12 Pieces of Music
    Now that you have completed another set of three songs you have unlocked the Electric Guitar, which you need for the next round of the contest and the unlocking of three more songs!
  • Write 15 Pieces of Music
    Again once you have unlocked the three songs that are in the 4th row you will have unlocked this step as well as the Microphones - so buy the best Mic you can afford and then polish off the last three songs for this set and unlock teh Magazine Photo-shoot as well as complete this massive segment of the quest!


If you can afford to spend the Life Points on better quality instruments it is a really good idea to do so, since a one-star instrument actually takes 2 hours or more to complete a song!

The path to being a Teen Idol rotates around the newest Hobby and its related collection, all of which has the writing of new songs as its focus.

The Sims Sign

Part of this quest series is the Sim Sign Quest - which requires you to have your town reach Level 25, and complete the Teen Idol Quest Series. With each element of the series completed, you will gain a piece of the sign, which can be found behind where the Real Estate Office is located on the top right side of the map!

Once you have completed the Fame Quest you can start building the Sim Sign -- which means repeating the Teen Fame-based hobby to collect their special resources. That basically means the following:

  • TV Show Cameo
  • Radio Interview
  • Magazine Photoshoot

Which if you did not realize it are the last three collection lines of the Teen Music Hobby.

The newest addition to the landscape is the very distinctive Simville Sign that can only be re-constructed via the hard work and creativity of your Sim Teen Idol!
In addition to repeating the Teen Idol hobby collection ("Teen Idol" is actually the proper name for the hobby) your Teen will obtain random Sign Resources (these are the TV Show Cameo, Radio Interview, and Magazine Photoshoot resources), through most of the normal tasks like washing their hands, eating, and the like.

That mechanism was previously established and demonstrated as part of the build and upgrade process for the four different Temples for the Bridge / Islands Expansion (for example the Pickaxe, Gold bars, and Granite that is required for the Riches of Terra collection).

Completing the Sims Sign has its own special benefits depending upon the level of completion you have managed to obtain. There are three possible levels to obtain and each of the levels brings with it a potential random bonus that can be obtained when harvesting XP and Money from the Town Buildings and Structures.The bonus system works out as follows:

  • Level 1: $200 Random Bonus
  • Level 2: $400 Random Bonus
  • Level 3: $600 Random Bonus

There does not appear to be a level higher than 3. The bonus amount in extra money is not finite - that is to say that you can obtain the bonus for your Sign Level randomly from each of the buildings or structures you harvest, so it is possible that the bonus could add up to a pleasantly tidy sum!

Beyond the Sign - Completing the High School
Once you reach the point in this new event and quest chain at which you are working towards obtaining the resources for completing the Simville Sign, you have also reached the point at which your attention will turn back towards completing the rest of the build sites for the town resources.

Particularly you will want to focus upon obtaining the required prerequisites for building the High School, which at a minimum means advancing your town to Level 30 (the level that is required in order to have the population level that is actually required to build the High School).

As you work your way towards Level 30 some emphasis should be placed upon coordinating the various relationships that are required to expand the town population in terms of children - which means married couples (not necessarily male-female couples either mind you as FreePlay fully supports all types of relationships including same-sex marriage which, if you think about it, is pretty cool, just saying).

While single Sims can adopt via the phone that process requires you to spend real-world money. Bearing in mind that when you bring a child into a Sim family one of the adults will basically have to put their career on hold, since an adult must be present in the household around the clock in order for the Child / Preteen / Teen to complete many of their tasks...

Getting the first collection completed is just the beginning but as you work towards completing the Sim Sign by repeating the collection you will eventually cap-off the new Teen Idol Hobby and it will become a source for extra Life Points as well!

I have been trying to get past this teen idol section for 5 months. I've written all the songs on the keyboard then the drums and I've been playing the 3star bass guitar forever. Nothing! I've emailed EA and never have they returned my emails. I'm ready to delete this game.

TO UNLOCK THIS QUEST:

For those who are stuck in making music for the Teen Idol, after completing your first three sets of music/notes, you have to buy and use the next instrument, which you can find at the TEEN section of your home store. The same applies when you complete your 6 sets, 9 sets, and 12 sets.

Getting the notes collection completed IS how you complete that quest. So yeah, you have to get the notes in the collection.

My Teen Idol has been playing instruments non stop for days and need just three notes to complete the set, but for these past three days has not completed one new note. The same ones keep popping up. I just sent him to school for a change. Hoping that will break his music block?

What's the prize for completing on time? I couldn't do it on time...still working on it. This one is really hard. Unless you're willing to shell out real money you kind of have o use the cheap equipment.

My teen has reached level 6/6 and still has one piece of music to produce with the bass guitar which is the Flying fingers of funkstown note. But each time the teen plays the guitar it produces the same notes and not and not the last one. It spends two hours each time playing with no result. What do I do to achieve that note
