[SIMCHASE] Season 20: Scare Bears! (9 days)

Post by ErinPW »

Edit 5th November
The issue has been fixed with the Thanksgiving Update 5.56.1
Edit 27th October
Regarding the tasks that require up to 28 sims but only allow 15, please, read that post:
https://simsfp.perturbee.net/viewtopic. ... 889#p77889
/Edit

-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-

These events follow the same pattern since SimChase Season 2. Now there are two versions: one lasts 7 days and the other lasts 9 days.
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.
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!

" Scare Bears ", a 9-day event starting from 20th October (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.

SimChase FAQ on ea.com

Note:

The times mentioned in the game are based on 3-star-objects.
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.)
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.

Mastery tasks:
To start these tasks it will either cost lots of simoleons or SP.
If you're hard up for cash it's probably best to do all the other tasks and then use the skip episode button to complete the episode. (See Leah’s post here. Except for episode 6 where the SP-amount for starting the task is below the one for skipping the task.

Collecting tasks:
The „Quick Complete to get extra items!“ is true, but it will cost at least 9 SP per sim if you wait long enough. The amount will be quickly over the one for skipping the whole task.

I know what you mean, it's do-able as far as number of sims but hard to keep up with 3 time limited events and reset tasks promptly enough to complete.

What you learn in Sims Freeplay! I was initially horrified at "bake hedgehog slice" In stove. You're slicing and cooking this cute critter?
This is what I thought of

So what's up with Lily Vale. This redhead with pale skin on face and arms has darker skin on bare legs. Looks so odd.
