Did we think, the day related goals are over? My current goal is: "Have 6 sims watch a tv series on wednesday between 8 and 10pm". It showed up last friday. And yay, I didn't break down, no LPs for skipping that goal :mrgreen:

Oh dear, looks like the day related goals haven't been removed. Glad you stood firm on not skipping it. I'm not too bothered with keys after the less than rare items I got for my 10 keys ;)
Not updated and Not playing! (please excuse zombies)

Day related goals are still here?

No! How would that be if you have a week to do it? Like you had that goal on Thursday and you have two days to complete it!

I am kinda low on LP stash so I am not skipping those goals.

patience is really needed here.




GOAL COMPLETED!

Be patient with goals. Do not use LP to skip.

Reward: ?

Technically it is cheating, on the other hand, the only advantage is "flexible" start times. Nothing else is affected. I have not tested this on iOS, but I have no doubt it'll work.

Those of you who know my other forum posts, know I often mentioned Unix time being at the base of the game. This means that wherever in the world you are, Unix time is the same as everywhere else.
This is important to know, since it serves as the staring point for lots of things. The starting times or time frames of jobs, school and goals are in LOCAL TIME! This is ideal, because if you set your local time zone to the time zone of 9PM you can have your Firefighter start at just after Noon if you want to. Or do that "Watch TV at Midnight" task a little earlier.

Warning: NEVER change the time and especially not the date on your device. This changes Unix time and will mess up your game!

What you can do is adjust the time zone to suit your needs with a +6 or -6 hours away from your local time. If you try more, expect it NOT to work. So if you're on EST, your time frame is EST + 6 hours or EST - 6 hours.

Let's say I need to have a Sim catch a ghost between 10PM and 6am, but I'm unable to make that time. I can force the game to do the task in the following way:
- Force close (iOS) or exit (Android) the game
- In the settings of your device, change the time zone to where it's the time you need (9PM or later in the above example)
- Start the game again and it shows the time of your device in the new time zone, allowing you to start the task (or jobs or school).
- Exit the game or simply go to the settings again to change the time zone back.

It does NOT finish any tasks that are in progress, nor does it change the time it takes for a task! But the ability to shift starting times is quite useful.

Remember: Time Zone adjustments only, DO NOT TOUCH TIME ITSELF! :!: :!: :!:

I used the time zone thing on my iPad this week so I could still send my sims to work even though I was stuck on the turnpike when they were supposed to go. Changed my iPad to Los Angeles, so noon became 9 am and sent them all off to work. They still worked all day and got home much later than usual because I put the time zone back to Florida, but that was OK with me.
I think, therefore, I Sim! (Or I did before they told me to "harvest" them)

I waited for a week once: the goal was to feed the ducks on a Sunday and it was Monday morning when I received it :lol:
When this happens I take the time to breath and earn Simoleons for other things. Haven't seen one of these goals in quite a while tho.
Oh and once I had to wait for like 9 days 'cause the goal was to Add a Sim and it wasn't being unlocked for 2 another 2 levels xD.

The only goal I skip is the movie at midnight 'cause I'm not up at that time and if I am I'm certainly not playing the sims :lol:
I'm on Facebook! Just ask ;)
It might take me a while to answer, but I will :)

Another week to complete this goal :lol: (now 6 days, 0 %) The reward will probably be 1 LP; most time related goals give one.
Since the rate of LPs for goals is reduced, it's not really worth it, to skip. Unless, one wants to get the key.
