Re: Easter Update - Changes

Post by pinkribbon » 11 Apr 2016, 12:21

This morning I received a pop up stating that I had 2 days left to complete The Styles of Time quest. I don't recall finishing it but is this something new? Maybe a chance to get a prize you may have missed? Has anyone else experienced this? It started around the 70% mark and I've been able to do the quest (check the capsule again - 1 min, check the bookshelf for the card - 4 min, place card in capsule - 2 min, and now I'm on panic in front of capsule - 10 hr+). Those times look different than when it first came out but it seems like I'm on day 5?

So confused! Just wanted to see if anyone else was experiencing this.

Yes, the quest has returned for newer players and the ones that haven't completed it the first time :)

(I have moved your post to the related topic.)

This quest series popped up for me this morning (I started playing a few months ago) so it looks like its back again -- so far the times for Day 1 look to be the same.

Yep, I'm a relatively new player and this just popped up for me this morning as well. I'm glad to see these kinds of events coming around so that new players can participate. For older players, though, it might be annoying to see an old event that they've already done rather than something new.

I'm doing the quest on my 2nd Sims game & am happy to have the cute hair styles. Thanks for the new times. I am noticing the restaurant quest popped up & I am still building mall stores. I clicked on the mall without a quest about 10 days ago because my Sims clothes were awful. ;) Then the mall quest automatically popped up. Anyway, since I am still building the mall stores, I completely ignored building the restaurant. It was $250,000 which is costly since I'm building the mall stores. I assume I'll be able & build the restaurant when I have more money, right? Does anyone know? Thanks!

Also the make up is now extremely limited for people just starting the game. There is almost no make up. I really liked the pink & even the dark purple. I hope those will come with the make over hobby. Does anyone know?

The Sous Judgmental quest for the restaurant is a queued quest. So the timer for the limited time prize is ticking (chef outfits). You can build the restaurant (the first goal) when ever you want but if you want the chef outfits you need to do it quickly.

Once you build the salon a lot of the make up should become available. The salon used to be a pre-build but not any longer. There is more make up in the make up hobby, too.

OK. Thank you. I'm so happy about that. In my other game, it seems like my Sims were doing the make up artist quest for a long time. Hopefully it will go quicker this time.
