I just got this new one:
Admire the zen stone at the Sim health spa
You have to build the Spa to be able to do this task, of course I don't have one built right now. Figures. :|

This is the first time we have to have a special home for a weekly task. Hope, there won‘t show up other tasks which require a certain home. Many players would have to tear down houses which were built with much effort.

Yes, there are several templates I chose not to build, or built and tore down (the party house.) Fortunately, when I was assigned this task some weeks ago, I had built the spa because I liked the river and waterfall, demolished the house, and built my own. I still wishe we could remove the benches in the middle of the lot.

In the last couple of months, I have noticed a really wide range in the number of tasks each week. This week, I had 16 but they were fairly short. Other weeks, i’ve had as few as 6 but they were generally longer. I’m wondering if there is a time or XP target or if it is just random...I know there are players out there who pay much more attention to detail than I do!
It used to seem that each task was worth the same % regardless of the time it took to complete.

Within the last 7 weeks I got 9 up to 28 tasks. The 28 tasks included one with 4 hours and one with 9 hours, the others took less than an hour/each. I also think there must be a target so that it‘s always possible to complete the tasks every week, but I didn‘t keep track of the percentage.

I don‘t think I ever had that many tasks for one key. But they were done in less than 24 hours, so I could conentrate on other things for the rest of the week :)

I noticed that there were a lot more tasks too. I've been keeping track of them to see if they are randomn or not. It hasn't been long enough to tell.

I‘m doing pretty much the same, but for a different reason.

Since JaneRoettinger posted here that she didn‘t get time related tasks for a while, I‘m watching out for them. Last week I got the task „Make 6 sims have a nap.“ which used to complete between 12 and 3 pm (siesta time). This time it completed at 8 pm. But to me it‘s still too early to say, those tasks have gone at all.

Wish I had seen this. I got this task too and had to skip it. Was twiddling my thumbs waiting for days waiting on new architect homes and could have built this one while I waited.
