when u Finnish a hobby how do you choose another hobby? son i have to store your equipment from the previous hooby?
Let's say that one of my sims (sim A) has a level 8 on cooking hobby, I want to switch him with the Writing hobby so another sim (sim B) could take his place. Will sim B instantly have level 8 from the one saved on the cooking hobby or will he have to start from scratch?

I have a quest called hobbies with Homies. Where I need to use a hobby station at a party. But I can’t seem to figure out how it works or what to use. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

From my experience,if the party sim's house has a hobby item for a hobby your own sim has, there would be a puzzle piece pop-up instead of balloons on top of them. You can also save yourself the trouble of finding a house with a common station by searching a party from the list with a recommendation. It should have a picture of your sim below the party name, if that was the case. :)
If I retired a sim who mastered cooking. Will I still be able to get the hobby exclusive stuff when I get to that level. Example the griddler collection at level 35. Or do I have to have a current sim with high level in cooking?
