[SIMCHASE] Season 73 ‘Ranch Runaround!’ (9 days)

Post by ErinPW »

New 9-day event event starting from May 10th (UTC)
SimChase Events are available from player level 14.

This topic is based on experiences with former Simchases in a level-60 town. All informations are subject to change!

:!: 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. Inspired Sims will complete the tasks faster!
Numbers of sims, clues or items to be found and costs may vary. (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 quickly exceed the costs for skipping the whole task.

There’s a new animation for toddlers at the wagon chest. Sadly the new costumes don‘t work like the first ones. The toddlers don’t keep the new costumes on and then the animation is over. Disappointing :(
