Thanks for putting together the list. At least on this one I like the prizes enough to try, but not enough to spend any SP. which is good because I used my entire stash last time !

It really helps knowing it resets at the same time everyday! I timed it this time so I start in time to have my coffee. And check in here.
Other minor tips for this ridiculous game —— I keep 28 Sims stationed at 3 houses, ( that’s the most they’ve had required for one activity ) with full sets of 3 star bookcases, stoves and computers lined up- those seem to be the most common items needed for multiple character assignments and can be used for searching.
I keep one sim at the park, and one at the nightclub through the event. Saves a precious few seconds calling someone over.

I really wish they didn't include gloves in the outfit. Makes them less versatile. But otherwise I really like the prizes. Of course, for me, outdoor prizes are always the best!

Episode 3 Task "Pruned to perfection! Can your Sim make the cut? Have your Sim make a perfect prune on a Plant - 6 hours"

It's an extra option that doesn't show up at every plant and there are not many 3-star-plants. At a plant with no or one star the task will take 7 hours 30 minutes.


Episode 6 Task
"Plentiful propagation! Can your Sim propagate a perfect Plant? Have your Sim make a propagation from a Plant. - 3 hours 30 minutes"

Is also an extra option. At plants with no or one star the task will take 4 hours 23 minutes.

Here's a picture of the 3-star-plants that have the option. I didn't find more.

Watch out for the star rating at the top and for SimChase icon at the tasks.

Episode 6

Skipping the task at the SimChase menue will cost 10 SP; the task-time and star rating of the plants doesn't matter then.

You're welcome :)

For the resetting time I have changed the opening post.

While the other SimChase events the timer started when my sim checked in at the Nightclub. For some friends it was the same, for others it started right after opening the game. This time the timer resets at the same time when I opened my game. So either there are different versions or the FM have changed the resetting time.
I'm not sure how important this info is. Guess, most players head over to the Nightclub right after opening the game.
