Sims 4 Cottage Living: Learn more about Village Errands

sims-4-cottage-living-village-errands

Sims 4 Cottage Living introduced a very handy feature called Village Errands. As its name suggests, you can run all kinds of errands for the villagers and get to know them better.

To start up an errand in Cottage Living, walk up to specific citizens of Henford-on-Bagley (NPCs) and use the “Offer Help with Errands” interaction.

As you run more errands for the villagers and interact with them more often, you’ll unlock new errands. Don’t be afraid to use additional friendly interactions after completing an errand. This will tell your fellow-villagers they can rely on your for new errands.

The errands that you run for them help you earn some cash, discover new features, and earn various collectibles. They can also help you meet wild animals and new villagers.

As EA explains:

If you’re in a helpful mood, you may also help Sims with village errands and learn more about their backgrounds, interests, and what they do around town! Or just for the good rewards, if that’s your bag.

Earn simoleons, resources and upgrade parts

Running errands for the locals may include speaking to gnomes, or spying on strangers to learn more about their romantic lives. Talking about the eccentricities of living in a small village!

However, don’t expected to get a lot of simoleons for running these errands. Actually, the resources and upgrade parts that you can earn (crop seeds, animal feed, Fox-Be-Gone alarms) are more valuable than money.

For example, after successfully completing an errand, you can unlock many useful Livestock Upgrade Parts. You can then use those items to upgrade your chicken coop. Installing Fox-Be-Gone alarms is a really good idea.

Foxes will not only steal the eggs from your coop, they’ll also kill your chickens. So, make sure to install those fox alarms and keep your chickens safe from harm.

Keep in mind that you cannot have more than three errands active at any given time. If you’re on the same wavelength with your neighbor, you can run all the three errands from the same villager. Or you can do three errands from three different villagers.

Let’s talk about who you can run errands for, and what type of errands you can expect to get.

Who you can run errands for in Sims 4 Cottage Living

You can only run errands for the NPCs, meaning the non-playable characters that have special roles in the game. This means that you can run errands for
Lavina Chopra, the mayor of Henford-on-Bagley, her son Rahul Chopra,
Agnes and Agatha Crumplebottom, Kim Goldbloom, Sara Scott, and Michael Bell.

Each NPC asks you to run a set of errands for them. However, not all of the errands are available at each given moment. If an NPC has no errands for you, come back later.

By the way, only one of your Sims can be working on a certain errand at any given time.

Most of the errands are not repeatable. Here’s what kind of errands each NPC will ask to help them with.
