Turning back time to 2011, plant and make fast money cheat for The Sims FreePlay

Turning back time to 2011, plant and make fast money

I found out today that even though turning back time just a little (one day) doesn't fool the game, turning back time for a year works just fine.

I'm using iPad 2 so I'm not sure how does this work with other device. Basically, get all your sims as high (inspired) as they can. And make them plant beans. Beans pay a lot and they take 12 hours to grow so that make turning time easy breezy.

Once you did that, leave the game. Click home button twice. Close the game by holding the game icon until it shake and the little red circle with minus sign come up. Tap that red circle then click home button twice again. Go to Setting on iPad, to General, to Date&Time. Turn off Set Automatically. Change the year to 2011. Then go back to the game.

There won't be any changes yet. Unless you are building something, the build time will go way up like 300 hours. But don't worried, once you turn on Set Automatically in your iPad time settings again it will come down to what it was before. Now make sure everybody is high as kite and planting. I called ten of them to one house that has ten plants so it's easier to manage, the rest are in another house. Basically I have a mini factory for planting. Anyway, cancel if some of your sims are working, they won't get paid there when you turn time. Make ALL sims plant, plant, plant.

Once everyone is planting away, you will go to your iPad time setting and switch am to pm and then pm to am with date change forward.

Say, you start at
May 1, 2011 at 8.00 am

You will change to
May 1, 2011 at 8.01 pm

Then you go to the game, pick the beans, make sure everyone is still high and then make them plant the beans again. Then go back to your Setting, change time to
May 2, 2011 at 8.02 am

(The reason I add one minute each time is the time you use to command your sims. I didn't want to wait one second)

Go back to the game. Pick beans, plant beans. Go to Setting change am to pm. Go back to game. Pick beans, plant beans. Go to Setting change pm to am next day. Repeat the cycle.

Do this as many time as you want. Once you are done. Make sure every sims is happily planting before you go to Setting and turn on Set Automatically in you iPad Date&Time. If you want to play right afterwards, make them plant carrots (or Pepper if you're really fast). If not, plant whatever kind of plant that take amount of time you want. Garlic/onion/bean are the best overnight. I hope this works for you and don't forget to do this before you update the game next time Smile

Have fun planting and turning time Smile

I did this while I was building the science center. It now says it'll take 479 hours to complete. I did set my time back to automatic, but it still didn't change the building time back to normal. What should I do? I'm going to have to wait days upon days for it to build unless I can fix it. If anyone knows how to fix this problem please share, I'm getting frustrated.

The first comment work fantastically!!! But when you are done it will appear that the sims are stuck doing a task with 0 min and 0 sec left and that you have to pay 1 lp to finish it. This will go away and they will finish their task if you just go to the city map and return to the sims.

You don't need to add a minute to the time. I just figured out that you only need to change the year.

Plant beans (or whichever seed you prefer) --> double click the home button --> hold and click the red with a minus symble button --> go to settings and change the year to 2011 --> open the game again --> hold and click the red with a minus symble button again --> now go to settings and change the year to 2012 --> open the game for the last time and voilaaa! Your beans are ready for harvest!

Hope this one helps. It does for me and it helped me to gain more than 200,000s! Smile

Also....after the first step of the process....each after only needs to be forwarded 12 hrs ahead (be sure to change date when going from PM to AM) this also keeps your sims needs all maxed so u don't have to worry about their needs!

This works GREAT! I've made over 200,000 simoleons and plan to make much more. And it actually works too if u set date to 2011 and then build a house, when u set it back to 2012 it's built! Love it!!!

Haha I sent my sims to sleep in a double bed and somehow they've ended up combining so the top is a rocker man and the bottom a hippie girl. Strangely though they're feet are still there. Weird...
