[SIMCHASE] Season 16: Eco-Engagement! (9 days)

Post by ErinPW »

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

Eco-Engagement! is a 9-day event starting from Tuesday 16th June. 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.

The Simchase idea is a good one but the cost of the mastery tasks are way too high, especially given the value of the prizes. I stopped doing them.

Yeah the mastery tasks cost way too many SP which are difficult enough to get as it is. I started this one but I think I only got one of the useless tokens and then gave up after a few days since I kept losing. No prices.

Can someone please help me find a tree that takes only three hours to do the bee thing? All I can find are 3 hour and 45 minute trees. Thank you!

The ones that I use are the Elm Tree and the Maple Tree. If only one is needed, I use the Yellowed Urban Tree.

You‘re very welcome!
We‘ll need those in episode 8, too. Fortunately the task just asks for one and not for 28 or so.
