Goal Won't Complete

Post by Dana Anderson-James »

I have a problem. I have the goal "compose 9 pieces of music". I have completed 13 new pieces of music. 5 I have completed in a neighbors town. How can I fix this?

It might be one of those goals you can't do at a neighbor's. If you did 13, that means you did 8 at home and 5 outside? Can you do one more at home? Then you get the next instrument and do 3 more. Hopefully it won't repeat. I got lucky, only had 1 repeat per instrument so far... I am up to the singing part and she just repeated the backup vocals so I hope the next one will be different.
I think, therefore, I Sim! (Or I did before they told me to "harvest" them)

The thing is, is that it shows up in my hobbies as complete. I unlocked the instruments even in the neighbor's town.

They should specify 'Write 9 'different' piece of music' or whatever the number was.

When you get this goal, you have done 6 already for the previous goal. So there are 3 more to write.
There are 15 pieces in total.

yup, that's what i wanted to find out... did Dana has 6 pieces of music when she received the goal or she has more than 9 pieces...

anyway, i think it is largely due to 5 pieces of music were obtained at neighbor town where these 5 pieces of music does not count towards the goal target even though it add to the hobby collection. It is logical since at neighbor town we can only see & check on neighbor goals only...

Yeah, they really are worded very badly.
Once you've done the first three notes, it should say "Great, now write 3 more songs using the bass guitar".

If it wasn't for this forum, I probably would have continued to use the keyboard to write music. It isn't very clear that you need to use the next instrument each time.

actually at the hobby tab, each music slot mentioned it belongs to what type of instrument note...

Yeah I know, but the goals don't say that. They just say "Write 6 pieces of music". They don't say each has to be different, nor do they say they count the ones you've already done.
