[SPOILER] Anglers and Mutants quest

Post by Perturbee »

During my digging I found a completely new quest that is NOT mentioned in any promotion yet! :mrgreen:
It is unclear when it will start, the only information I could get from FM/EA was:
I can’t comment on the mutant fishes, but we anticipate some really cool stuff coming out of the New Year’s Eve content
So here is everything I found out:
- You have 14 days to complete the entire quest.
- Two new fishing levels have been added (like with Ghost Hunting): L. 7: Mutant Wrangler and L. 8: The Fish-master and two collection rows of (mutant) fishes have been added.
- The event is similar to the Halloween event, except I see only one prize for collecting all fishes.
- The reward is a "Müté Fis Accessories" Pack, of which the contents are unknown at this point.
- Tip: If you don't have a level 6 FisherSim yet, now is the time to get one levelled up, this will save you time during the event!

[spoiler="Event Start text"]Uh oh, there's been a disaster at Sim Town Park! Come sort this mess out within 14 days to win great prizes!

Complete this quest within the time limit to unlock the Müté Fis Fashion Accessory Pack![/spoiler]

[spoiler="Intro text"]Sim Town Lake Disaster!

Breaking News! Mutant fish have been seen circling a discarded barrel in the Sim Town lake. The barrel is said to contain poisonous material, and if it's not taken care of soon, the normal, non-mutant fish might get very upset. Catch them within the time limit to win the Müté Fis Fashion Accessory Pack! Would you like to participate in this challenge?

Note: Selecting 'Yes' will unlock new fish and reset your current fishing collection.
(My note: I don't know what happens if you tap 'No', I didn't test it with the Halloween event.[/spoiler]

[spoiler="Event Promo text"]There’s a barrel of toxic waste floating around in the park lake? Somebody has to do something!

To promote environmental awareness, Müté Fis Fashion, Sim Town’s newest and most exclusive fashion label, are offering LIMITED-TIME fashion accessories to the first Sim who catches the mutant fish and removes the toxic barrel from the lake! Catch the fish before time runs out and it’s all yours![/spoiler]

[spoiler="Quest set"]- Send a Sim to the Park
(Did you hear!? Someone dumped a barrel of toxic waste in the park lake! Send a Sim to the Park to check it out.)
- Call the Science lab on a Phone
(Your Sim suspects the barrel is from the Science Lab. Someone should take it out before something bad happens! Call the Science Lab on the phone.)
- Catch a fish
(The Science Lab says that they tried to take the barrel out of the water, but were fish-slapped by a three-eyed fish! Fish-slapped by a three-eyed fish? Ha! It seems these new fish are very protective of their barrel! I guess you’re going to have to catch these new fish before you can take the barrel out. This is going to be fun! Go fishing; see if you can find one of these new fish!)
- Catch 3 Fish
(Hmm... the fish you just caught looks perfectly normal. I think you’re going to need to improve your fishing skill before you’re going to have a chance at catching one of these new fancy slappy fish. Catch 3 different types of fish.)
- Catch 6 Fish
(Great work! Did you see the mutant fish on the final two rows of the collection screen? Soon you’ll catch all the mutant fish and take the barrel out of the water! Remember, the more time your Sim spends fishing, the more skilled they will become and the more types of they'll catch!
Okay, let’s get back to fishing. Catch six types of fish in total.)
- Catch 12 Fish
(Those new fish are almost within reach! Soon you’ll be able to get the barrel out of the water and receive your reward! Your Sim can’t WAIT to try out their new fashion accessories. Catch 12 fish in total.)
- Catch All Fish
(Those crafty mutant fish have been evading you up to this point… but NO MORE! You're faster, smarter, and stronger than the rest of the fishersims now, and you're ready to catch a mutant fish. Note: Mutant fish are any fish from the final 2 rows of the collection)[/spoiler]

[spoiler="Mutant Fishes Names"](Order unknown)
- Hank Scharker
- Aaron Pinkskin
- Gustavo Finn
- Polo Perch
- Hi-Sim-Berg
- Blue Salmon[/spoiler]

Awesome find! However I really shudder to think how much time, effort and frustration it will take to get from level 6 to 8 (is it 1/2% per 4 minute try?) and to catch all 18 fish. Not sure if 2 weeks will be sufficient but perhaps it might be doable if they allow more than one Sim to fish at a time.

I'm sure FM isn't too happy about my digging and sharing, but I prefer to give everyone a chance to prepare.

I doubt they've magically added an extra fishing spot in the park. It would be there already, since the texts were also included in this update. Levelling up is indeed going to be a teeth grinding experience.

The Halloween one was 7 days, I think, so 14 days for one fishing Sim might be doable. That is, if the odds on catching unique fishes has increased. We'll see how it pans out.

Oh dear, this means I really need to get my fisherman up to level 6. He is only on level 3.
Well, I now know what to do during the holidays...

Interesting! My fishing hobby has been broken for the last two updates... Just two lines of fish showing on the board, though I've got a level six angler. Irritating cos I can't get that singing fish that's sitting there so tantalisingly... :(

Maybe this new thing will fix it.

How does Perturbee do these marvels?? Is some kind of genius. That must be it :ugeek:

Okay, this looks interesting... Thanks very much for this Perturbee. I hope this will give us the ability to have two or more Sims fishing at the same time. With all the other adult hobbies you can have several Sims doing one hobby at the same time, fishing is the one exception. Which is why it's my least favourite hobby and my Sims don't put alot of effort into it. But I do have a level 6 fisherman, so I guess I am ready for this quest.

Oops...hadn't see Perturbee's comment above about FM not adding an extra fishing spot...

This has the potential of turning an already frustrating hobby into a complete disaster. Last thing on my wish list was more fish!

Thanks for the early warning!

I wonder if they will open up some fishing spots on the island at some point. My fishersim lives on a houseboat but has to go into town to catch his fish :roll:

I just hope they increase the rate of levelling up for the fishersims.

That is an awesome idea! Imagine multiple sims chilling on a boathouse fishing together. Cool!
