The Community Center

Thank you for printing this page from Remember to come back to check for updates to this guide and much more content for The Sims FreePlay
Last Updated:

Previously known as the “Sports Center” and now known as the Community Center, this building is one of the Community Lot Class of structures.

Located on the northwest corner of the Town in the midst of the primary residential district - directly to the west and a bit north from your Starting Home, the CC is a multi-story building that contains limited-use comfort facilities - pretty much just a pair of bathrooms really...

In a rear partly-covered patio can be found a Children play area with a sandbox and a Java Joe coin-operated beverage machine.

The ground floor is fitted with a marital arts training area on the left and a Ballet studio on the right, the former having a pair of training dummies and a pair of board-breaking stands, while the latter includes a record player for musical encouragement of the dancers, adequate barre space along two walls for stretching exercise and a large open Dance area in the center for, well, Dancing.

The first floor is reached via a set of centrally-located stairs and has been fitted with a state-of-the-art Wood Crafts classroom and facilities.

Karate, Ballet, and Woodworking are found at the Community Center

Among the crafting kit are three proper crafting benches on the right side of the floor, with proper and adequate storage for supplies and the like along the outer walls. A full Class-A First Aid and Emergency Medical Treatment station has been installed.

The large white wall-mounted First Aid Station box is visibly marked with a comforting large red cross symbol and the worlds "DON'T PANIC" -- and in addition to a plentiful supply of the very best type of coagulant-laced pressure bandages and arterial clamps, also sports a military-grade defibrillator and a one-touch button that will summon an ambulance in just a few minutes!

Inside the First Aid Station in its own small compartment is the booklet "What Should I do if Someone cuts off their hand?" both in printed and ebook format - to download it to your iOS, Android, or Kindle device simply slam the device into the box repeatedly until the janitor pops in and helps you set up the WiFi.

A plentiful supply of chemical ice bags are also available (just squeeze it to pop the packet inside and you get instant cold!) as well as convenient selection of hand-sized storage bags that will hold two ice-packs and... Umm... A hand.

All this is necessary due to the presence (on the left side of the floor) of a full-capability wicked sharp bandsaw and cutting table. Yay sharp Objects! Really...

There is even a state-of-the-art vacuum-based sawdust removal system upon whose duct work you can, as often as needed, chase down and capture little wooden and metal boys you create on the benches in order to ensure that they are properly enslaved and made to entertain small Children throughout the world.

What is a Community Center Anyway?

While it was clearly initially intended to be a community sports center, the development of hobbies as well as theme-based activities ended up causing the focus for the building to change ever so slightly so as to morph it into a community services structure better described by the name "Community Center" and well done you!

To put this in perspective for you, many small to medium sized Towns in Australia, Canada, England, and the United States - basically all of the countries that are well-stocked with good food, excellent net access, and pretty girls - just saying - consider having a Community Center to be a minimum requirement in order to qualify as a developed society.

Back on point here, in those wonderful nations a Community Center is a public building in which every opportunity is made to provide the community with a wide variety of services -- hence the name “Community Center” -- among which are, traditionally, a minding service for latchkey kids, a desk with a person capable of answering questions on any number of topics related to the community, and more.

The town we live near has, well... Okay, you know, the place we keep our game systems and stuff in that large box-shaped thing in that room with the huge blue ceiling? Yeah, it is in a village near the town where they have a Community Center and we use it sometimes just you know, to say we did...

That CC has a proper outdoor playground, an auditorium, a gymnasium with basketball courts inside and out, proper locker rooms with actual showers, meeting rooms of the sort you can hold meetings in after you finish playing D&D (though really the ones at the town library are nicer and they have free coffee and tea there), a TV Room that has PS3's and Xbox 360's, and a well run seasonal athletic and club program, including Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts and Youth Nights.

So there you have it... In the Sim world what we have is very similar really, except for all the stuff I named above, which the Community Center in Simville does not actually have...

Note: The rumor is that additional activities are planned for this space, including some outdoors use of the lot but we shall see... It would be terrific if they were to put in a sports field out behind the CC with a Cricket Pitch, just saying...

Unless the build site for the building you want appears in the game you have not leveled your town high enough yet. Best advice is to keep playing and doing the missions, level your town until you get the building site then build it!

See the problem here is that nobody can tell you how much the Community Center will cost YOU because the cost is based on the number of OTHER buildings you have already built in that class.

Each new building in a class increases the cost for the next building in that class, so it really does depend on how many others in the class you have already built.

You do not have to participate in the events like those of the Community Competition Center - you can just ignore it.

As for the game not recognizing that you have built the Competition Center - that is a bug and you will need to file an official help request for that.

They need to have all of their levels higher (food, sleep, toilet, et all) in order to get them to do the task you're having trouble with.

[color=red][color=red]they should definitely give out more options like a football field or a soccer field. They could also include gymnastics or baseball. love how they gave a 30 second practice session for ballet but it doesn't make since that u get more xp and better talent improvement than the 4 min actions.
