Re: Tips about goals

Post by CellarDoor » 27 Feb 2014, 02:31

Just wondering if we know anything yet about the "new" Ghost Hunters quest line and its goals? I can't find a list of goals posted anywhere on the internet.

After the update, it seems like it's available at level 20, not 23. That's a nice change. I just started it, but I'm concerned (because of glitches others are posting about) that I won't be able to complete it in time to get the haunted house.

Guess I'll have to wait out this 18hr 30 minute "Hide in the Park Toilet" goal to see... By the way, it doesn't auto-complete like other quests that have the goal of the same name. I'd also like to get a start on my snow park [spoiler=]for the seniors quest [/spoiler], but that's a looooong building time, so I hoped to know if I'd need to build anything for the Ghost Hunters quest before I start it.

Bagatelle, you are wonderful! This is exactly what I needed for the Ghost Hunters quest. That's a LOT of loooong goals. Now I know not to slack off and to save up some LPs for rushing in case I do. Thank you for the French forum link!

I have a question. I have already completed my goals for the week with two days to spare. I normally keep doing them anyway just for something to do. However it is wanting me to do 3 sims read encyclopedias and t hat takes a lot of time. If I ignore it will it still be there when the new batch starts? Is there a benefit to doing it since Ive already earned the key?

Thanks-- Christine

You are on the new update? If so, I would definitely not do them, as there is really no advantage other than banishing boredom. :D

I stopped doing those goals on the old update, also, once I got the key for the week. I decided they weren't worth it once I had gotten the key, even in the old version of the game. Now, it's a form of suicide (joking! I'm not that serious, but I haven't done a weekly goal since the update, and am not earning any keys now, on the Life Dreams update.)

If you've completed your weekly quest, there's no point in doing any more goals until your next week starts, at which point the goal will remain the same.

So, for best results, start reading your encyclopaedia 2 minutes and 59 seconds before your new week starts - if it finishes after your new week starts, it will be counted towards you next batch of goals.

As blackbrit said however, I don't see any point in the mystery box anymore. If you're in the early stages of the game it's nice, but once you've saved up a bit of money and a few LP, it's not really worth it, especially now that every action takes off time from a sim's life!

I've never thought of beginning action before the new week goals starts !! A good tip ! Thanks ! :)

I'm not sûre it's not interesting at all even with the update to do weekly goals.... You can earn 40 or more LP in a 10 key box, enough to slow down aging...
But I don't know if it's a good calculation...

Goals that require more than one sime, usually complete right after the last sim has started the task. Then you can cancel the tasks and let them do something else :)

My key goals remained, although I get a notification about "exciting new goals" every week.

I always let my sims work for the key goals, if it matches my plans, but I ignored the keys.
