The Sims Mobile: Choosing A Hobby

Screenshot 20180308 003601

Your Sim might be the star of their workplace, but even the most work-obsessed Sims need a hobby. Hobbies are the perfect opportunity for your Sims to explore a new interest outside of their careers.

Hobbies are unlocked at level 8. After reaching level 8, your Sim will inform you that they’d like to try their hand at the Cooking hobby. The Cooking hobby is the only hobby available to you at level 8. Continue leveling up to unlock more hobbies.

The Sims Mobile: Choosing A Hobby

To start a new hobby, open up the home catalog and select Hobby Collections. Browse through these collections and place down a hobby object. You’ll notice that most of the items in the Hobby Collections are locked. Place the basic hobby object that is available to you and play through the hobby to unlock nicer hobby objects and decor that will help you finish hobby events more easily.

After placing a hobby object, select it to have your Sim start that hobby. Sims can only have one hobby and only one Sim in the household can have that hobby. Two or more Sims cannot share the same hobby at the same time, so make sure you select your Sims’ hobbies carefully.

Advance in the hobby by completing hobby events. Finishing hobby story chapters will reward you with better hobby objects, which will help your Sims finish their hobby events faster. Make sure you place all the unlocked hobby objects you can to help future generations of Sims excel in that hobby more easily than their ancestors did.

You can track your hobby progress at any time by going into your Sim’s info panel. Tap the question mark icon on your Sim’s hobby to get a quick summary from your Sim about how things are going with their hobby.
