I had the grill'em all goal. It was done on a free bbq and my sims went to sit at a picnic table to eat.
After 6:30H to goal seemed stuck on 0s remaining.
Then I remembered this thread, reread it and let it go for another 90m, so 8H in total. Then the goal did complete 8-)
I've had a similar thing happen after a Preteen eats Microwavable Popcorn.
It works fine with the cheaper microwaves, but with the 3-star one, it seems to take a couple of minutes longer than it says it does to actually finish the goal. - It stays on zero for a while like the BBQ one did. Weird.
If you tap the 3-star microwave, Popcorn should take 9 minutes.
The child Sites down on a 3-star chair, then tap the child, the info box shows a bit less than 9 minutes. It takes a few seconds at the microwave itself, so the time is ok.

If there is a 2-star chair

If there is no chair

No chair is like 1-star
Yes, it's weird. And annoying, because the players don't know what's wrong :( Who would guess, that the time for this task is related to the chair instead of the microwave or grill?

Yesterday I had a strange experience with this goal .... I sent Emma to plant garlic at 6.01pm with the option to finish with an LP. The goal completed immediately :o

If any player gets this goal, s/he should give it a try, if s/he can. But, to be on the save side, send 1 sim at after 12 noon, too :)

Was it 6.01 pm or 8.01pm? Anyway looks like they might have changed it! Will definitely try it out.

I wish I had read this this morning :lol: , this is my next goal, it's 5:20 pm and I was just waiting for it to be 8:00pm or so xD.

Oh well, I'll start right now xD. It's gonna finish during night anyways xD.

Thanks :)

ETA: Oh wait! But I won't be up before 6am so it won't complete right? :( *sighs* I have to wait until tomorrow :(

Can you give it a try a little bit past 6 pm? If you read a few posts above yours, in my game this goal completed immediately at that time, when it showed up a few days ago. It's weird, but worth a try, I think :)

I actually tried it at a random time (can't remember when but before 6 pm) and it did not work. So the magic time seems to be after 6pm ;)

Obviously the time "between 8pm and 6am" is not mentioned correct. I guess, it should be "between 6pm and 8am" or "between 6pm and 6am"
There are several goals in my (german) game where the times are mixed up. I never thought this could have happen in english games, too :o
