[SIMCHASE] Season 12: Desert Duel!

Post by ErinPW »

These events follow the same pattern since SimChase Season 2 (Except Season 9). While the tasks have changed, the numbers of sims, items, times and costs remained the same. Therefore we have prepared this topic for the whole Season already, just without detailed tasks.

If you want you can skip tasks at the menu or shorten tasks at the sim. Both amounts are mentioned in brackets behind the tasks. The costs at the sim will go down a while after starting the task, the lowest amount is 9 SP.

Of course it's always possible that the developers build in changes. We will only find out when the episodes appear in our games. Therefore, all information without guarantee!

"Desert Duel" is the 12th SimChase event.. It’s a 7-day event starting from Tuesday 24th March (AEST)
:!: After opening the game and tapping "Start Chase" the following episodes will start at the same time every day.
To start the event check in with SimChase's hirsute host Kam Ham at the Nightclub.

Numbers of sims, clues or items to be found and costs may vary. (Probably depends on the game-level and if you have purchased the boost.)

The Firemonkeys have lowered the amount of items to be found in task 6. It‘s now 24 dust bunnies instead of 36 in former chases :)

Hello!

I have a question regarding these challenges. Is the other contestant a real sim created by a real user?

Thanks :)

The rival isn‘t a real player. According to other players reports they allways need the full 24 hours and if you can use a roadblock, the time will be added to those 24 hours. Though, most times the spin may give simoleons or monument resources :?

I wish there was an option to not participate in the chase! I really don't want to get a message in a few days saying I lost something I didn't even want to do.

...and an option to delay it a little. I’m working toward a super baby and I randomly woke up earlier than usual yesterday. I figured I’d set some tasks right? But noooo, I couldn’t get my super baby stuff going unless I wanted to start the chase clock. I don’t want to do that until a more rational 9 o’clock, maybe after I’ve fed the dogs. So, because of stoopit monkeys I lost a good opportunity to get a little ahead. Thanks a bunch #@%&*. :evil:

Yes, it would be nice if timer started when you checked in at nightclub. A few times ago, I woke up in the night and couldn't sleep so decided to play SFP a bit. Because I opened my game, my simchase day started at 2am that time 🙄
