Scientific breakthroughs in the bath has been reduced to 9 minutes (!!) from hours in the Romance update. :(
This used to be my favorite senior geek activity, but now I'm stuck with a senior that will take ages to reach the last bit for the orb since I can't guard my game every 9 minutes...

Is it better to try and just take ages about it or let her do something else to reach afterlife and lose orb progress so someone else can take over? Any ideas?

Does it also apply to the lower starred items? It may be a little glitch. Sorry it's taken so long for me to reply! :oops:

I think it would depend on what level of orb you are working towards to decide if you wanted to lose the progress or try and stick with it. I think I would lose the progress if it was a bronze orb but stick with it if it was a silver working on gold or gold working on platinum orb.

A member of the German Guide and Forum has checked the toddler life dreams:

I want to Draw lots of Animals on a Chalkboard.
I want to Study a lot of Quantum Physics on Chalkboard.

I want to get lots of dolls married.


There isn't a change, but she found that using the new objects "Little Scribbler", "Pirate Dollhouse" and "Castle Dollhouse" doesn't count for the lifedreams. (While Penthouse update.)
Tip: Gather LPs and SPs for the quest and events.

Holiday, 5.34.3
