The Great Christmas Mishap (Christmas 2014)

 
This is a special Holiday Event - holiday Events are strictly voluntary on the part of the players but are generally considered worth the effort involved!


The Great Christmas Mishap
Christmas 2014

The Event begins with a Notice screen that pops up as you log in after the event has gone live. This is followed by a pop-up with the following information contained in it:


Sims FREEPLAY BIRTHDAY
Today is tthe 3 years anniverary of The Sims FreePlay!
We couldn't have done it without you! As a token of our appreciation
we have a small gift for you!

Note: This Event has a 10 Day Timer. You must complete all of its Quests within that 10 days! Save Xmas within the time limit, and get your very own living teddy bear! No batteries needed, just love and hugs!

Quest 1: Splash Face In Sink
Xmas is coming soon, and one of your Sims would like to put up a few decorations. But first, get them to splash their face with some water to wake up. Have a Sim 'Splash Face' in a sink.

Note: This Quest requires an Adult Sim - a Preteen, Teen, or Senior will not have the option of doing it. Using an Adult Sim, have them use any sink and the

Task: Splash Face (3s) 7 XP.

Quest 2: Ask a Sim if they are Okay
Oh dear, one of your Sims took quite a nasty fall! I hope they're ok. Have a Sim ask them!

Task: Are You Okay? (10s) 45 XP.

Quest 3: Bake Some Cookies on a Stove
Your Sim wasn't hurt in the fall. Phew! They are a little hungry though. Have your Sim bake some cookies on a Stove.

Task: Bake Cookies (1m) 15 XP

Quest 4: Read a Recipe Book
The next stage in this Mission is a Quest to Read a Recipe Book. Have one of your Sims hit the Bookshelf in their home and select the appropriate Task:

Read a Recipe Book (5s) 16 XP

Quest 5: Carefully Discuss Ways to Avoid an Accident
Ouch! Did that book just zap your Sim?! But that doesn't even make sense!

Your Sims seem to be having trouble maintaining their dignity today. Perhaps they should talk about what's going on with a sympathetic soul. Have a "Careful Discussion" with another Sim... Carefully now!

Have a Sim visit the home of your preferred Sim Cook and have you a half-hour-long conversation about safety!

Task: Careful Discussion (30m) 297 XP.

Quest 6: Read 'Accident Prone' from a Bookshelf
There's no denying it, your Sims are a little accident prone today. Idea! There is an excellent book on the subject with that very title. perhaps it's worth investigating! Have a Sim read 'Accident Prone' from any bookshelf.

Task: Accident Prone (41m) 960 XP.

Quest 7: Call a Sim to the Park
According ot the book, your Sims are currently at level 3 on the accident prone chart, scientifically known as 'The Butter Fingers Level.' Luckily, butter fingers are reversible by enjoying green, quiet areas. Where in Sim Town is green and quiet? The Park! Nothing loud or unusual ever happens there! Send a Sim to the park.

Quest 8: Meditate at the Park Fountain
The lush green grass, the soothing water fountain, the smelly strange looking toilet block. Your Sim knew coming here was a good idea. Tap on the Fountain and choose 'Meditate.'

Task: Meditate (45m) 405 XP

Quest 9: Sit Quietly on a Park Bench
Head to the Park and hang out on a bench!

Sit Quietly on a Park bench (24m) 405 XP.

Quest 10: Rest with the Thinking Man
Your Sim needs to contemplate their accidents with an appropriately thoughtful Sim. They might escalate to the fourth level of the accident rating known as 'Hot Mess' otherwise. The Thinking Man knows a lot about thinking. Rest with the Thinking Man.

When you are ready to do this have your Sim head back to the Park and use the Thinking Man Statue there...

Rest (3h10m) 774 XP

Have your Sim do the Quest...

Quest 11: Share Good News on a Phone
Excellent! After contemplating their recent misfortune with the Thinking Man Statue, your Sim thinks they're all better and no longer susceptible to strange accidents. Send your Sim back home, pick up the telephone and tell someone the good news!

Share Good News (5s) 5 XP

Quest 12: Talk to Santa
Oh no! After all that effort to prevent accidents, your Sim STILL has one! These accidents are getting out of control! Who's that in the yard? Is it Santa? He looks uneasy. Talk to Santa to see what he wants.

Talk to Santa (5m) 33 XP

Congratulations! You won an inflatable Sleigh! Make every Sim think Santa is right there in the garden! Find them in the Outdoor Decorations section of the Home Store!

Part 2 - The Christmas Quest
With the first half down, you can begin the second half!

Quest 1: Talk to Santa
Santa just told your Sim that everyone at Santa's Workshop - the elves, teh reindeer... even Santa himself - are having strange accidents as well. Wow, it's happening at Santa's Workshop too? The accident thing has gone global!

We need to do something! Talk to Santa so the two of you can formulate a plan.

Talk to Santa (5m) 33 XP

Quest 2: Wave Down the Sleigh with Santa
Santa wants your Sim to come with him as soon as possible to his workshop! But first, you Sims need to wave the sleigh down! Tap on Santa and choose''Wave Down Sleigh.' Santa will even join in.

Wave Down the Sleigh (1h10m) 567 XP

Quest 3: Place the Sleigh at a House
Great work! The sleigh has seen your Sim and is ready for landing! Place the sleigh somewhere at your Sim's house.

Note: We were not able to complete the Quests for this Event. The game developed an error and it is currently crashing whenever we tap on a location, and is unplayable. We are hoping that the next update fixes that but for now the game is unplayable.

We apologize for any inconvenience this caused you - ordinarily this game is rock-solid and it shouldn't have been a problem.
