Sometimes their goals conflict with my goals. All the same thankies for the list. It's nice to see. *nods*
Nice idea, but knowing FM they do not seem to want to make things easier for us.

Going through my list the second time round, I found that it follows exactly the same order for me. However some goals seem to have disappeared - the ones you need to spend Simoleons on - 2000 in garden, 600 on windows, 3 star living room chair, stereo and tv. Not sure whether they have been removed for everyone or maybe it was because I just reached level 50. Anyway am very happy about this!

And due to keeping track I did 32 goals in 2 hours (started the long goals earlier) from 2 sims have a meal from 6-12 pm onwards and even managed to Woohoo on a Friday night :mrgreen:

I do not think the end user is of much interest to FM or EA. They are designing for advertising and to make money...and I understand that I suppose.

Congrats on reaching level 50! And I stand amazed, with mouth open, staring dumbfounded that you completed 32 goals in 2 hours! No wonder you're at level 50!!! Palmjill is the FLASH of SFP!

Thank you, katgames. It helped that it happened to be a Friday and I was determined not to skip the woohoo on a Friday night goal. Took a lot of planning (assigning long term goals to particular sims) but it was a lot of fun and challenging as well.

As for level 50, it is because I have been playing regularly for almost a year now. Leveling up much faster thanks to the xp bonuses, especially from Pertubee's toilet! Also lots of planting of hamburgers and garlic which both give very good xp.

Yes, thanks for pointing out that they have added teen goals to the list. And thanks for the newer list with the additional goals, calleighwolfe.

Since the teen update and the introduction of the mystery box there has been a change in the general goals.
1. Goals are random ie they no longer repeat in a particular cycle/pattern.
2. Teen goals have been added to the list - specific teen actions that needs a teen to complete eg. Learn to drive, hang out all day on a couch, read a fantasy trilogy etc.
3. Day of the week goals have been removed which makes sense due to the mystery box.
4. Some additional adult goals have been added.
5. These are the new goals I have come across (also see calleighwolfe's list)
Grow garlic 8pm - 6am (end time)
Warn simanity soapbox park
24 hour fishathon
All day session ice hockey
Snowball fight
Aquatic lunges 1 hour
Quick routine hockey rink 1 hour
Teenager: chat to Besty
Teenager: 4 day takeaway
Plot world domination
Teenager: science project
Teenager: learn to drive
Teenager: protest something park
Double smoked pulled pork
Grill em all
Plant eggplant
Teen: waste whole day on couch
Teen: hang about in park (fishing pier)

No problem :). It's good that people find it useful, I was starting to think I was crazy for writing them down lol!

Oh thanks God for #1! neighbour goals are always in the same order, it's so boring xD.

I'm still getting new goals, different from the ones on the list. When I have more I'll post them :)

I'm also writing down my goals. It's not more crazy than organizing the virtual life of virtual mini people :lol:
I also think the list is useful. Therefore thank you, calleighwolfe :)
