[SIMCHASE] Season 30: “Seaside Strife!“ (9 days)

Post by ErinPW »

Info
Better check the star rating of the items you normally use for the tasks! The star rating of some objects have been changed from 3-star to 1-star or 2-stars!


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

"Seaside Strife", is a 9-day event starting from 15th June.
:!: 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.

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 whole star system really irritates me. There are many lovely pieces of furniture I don't use as their low star rating makes them less useful in events like SimChase. I've designed whole rooms to incorporate 3 star items and paid higher prices for them too. I'm angry that some items were downgraded.

What bugs me most is that the change includes Online Store items. First I payed real money, then LPs or SPs and now they are pretty useless. It doesn’t make me want to purchase from Online Store again …
Hope, many players will complain!

I am doing the repeat of the Seaside Strife SimChase. Instead of needing 8 sims for one of the tasks, I need 9. I’m wondering if, since the limit of sims per lot has gone up, they are going to increase all the numbers. :?

Possibly it has to do with the new levels. I know that the lower levels do have lower requirements.
What level are you on now? Would you mind to provide a screenshot of the tasks?

A town on level 56 has the same numbers like before:

I am at level 60 so I guess that’s the reason and the numbers will probably all go up.
So far, the times are the same.

I’m surprised I got this event again. I already had some of the prizes but apparently I didn’t finish it. So now I know - lose a SimChase and you get another shot at it.
