For some quests you really need to be good with time management but sometimes that still isn’t enough, if you want to complete a quest in time you can use the posts on this site to see what goal will be coming next. Another great way to be able to complete these quests on time is by starting certain goals earlier than required which I will be explaining in this post.
What goals can be started early?
Any goal that you can normally do can be started early because you will have access to it, for example:
- Bake rocky road (any baking or gardening)
- Watch a documentary
Any goal that you can’t normally do you will have to wait until you get the goal to be able to complete it, goals such as:
- Post bridge schematics
- Look up locksmith on computer
The tip with this method is to put the sim doing that action early in a different house that you cannot go to until you get that goal or it will not work
I will explain an example with the Raiders of the Lost Artifacts quest, so while on the previous quest (Mysterious Island) I had a quick look at this quest post to see if anything needed to be started during the previous quest
As you only have 2 days to complete this quest it is a good idea to get a head start (I completed this quest within a few minutes because of the early start)
Goals below in bold can be started early:
- Go to the mysterious island
- Tap on a monument
- Read big book of stuff- 19 hours
- Leftovers from a fridge- 18 seconds
- Search for artifacts in the garbage- 8 minutes 30 seconds
- Find the third artifact
- Upgrade the riches of terra to level 1
The first 2 goals cannot be done early but they don’t take any time at all.
Goal 3 takes 19 hours to do which is almost half of the time limit.
I started goal 3 while my mysterious bridge was building, but you could start it even earlier! It’s a good idea to do this in a house that no one lives in (or the person doing the goal lives in on their own) so other sims don’t get in your way. Once I finished the tap on the monument goal I then go to the house where the sim is reading the big book of stuff and they should be done by now so it will complete straight away!
Goal 4 can also be started early but it is very short so there isn’t really any point.
The last 3 tasks cannot be started early but they are relatively quick.
