QUEST IS COMPLETE!

Prize: HANS Panel and Dishwashers

Where can I find them? The HANS Panel is in the electronics section and the dishwashers can be found in the kitchen section of the home store

How much do they cost? The first HANS Panel is free, after this they cost 15LP each. The Stainless Steel Dishwasher costs S150,000 and the Brown Black Dishwasher costs S26,000

Is it worth it?

HANS Panel– You can use the HANS panel to open and close the curtains/blinds in your house, dim the lights and change the colour of your house lights. I am not really sure what the point of changing the colours is but being able to open and close the blinds all at once is a great time saver!

You can dim the lighting by 25%, 50% and 75%:

You can change the house lights colour to Yellow, Red, Blue and Green:

Dishwashers– It is worth completing this quest in the time limit just for the dishwashers! They are amazing! For all of you who know the annoyance of completing the cooking hobby and having hundreds of plates laying around that have to be cleaned up individually this is a must! Just select load all plates on the dishwasher and they will all disappear!

Once you have used the dishwasher you need to wait an hour before you can use it again:

  1. The green or red lights might look cool in a haunted house that’s flickering. The dishwasher is neat! Can’t wait for this! Thanks for the preview! 😁

  2. Is there a limit to how many dishwasher we can put in a house???
    If I can unlock it I’m thinking about changing all the sinks to dishwashers in my hobby house but it would suck if we are only allowed to put one in every house 😦

  3. I am just wondering when it comes to finding all the parts in the quest…do you get one part for each sim that completes a two hour search? As in would you have to complete this twenty times to get all the parts?

    Thanks

  4. Hi, I have a question/advice to ask you. I am not sure if I started the quest late, but I am now still at the first set and I have only 6 days left. If I want to finish it in time, will I have to skip through the days? Because I don’t understand how else I could finish it if I waited. Thank you as always!

    • You have to complete the first set within two days, if you take longer than two days it will skip straight to the second set once you complete the first so you won’t get the task to wait as you are behind. If you do have to wait that means you are completing this in time so you can either skip to get a head start on the next set or just wait 🙂

  5. I know we don’t need that many sims searching, but I wanted to see if there was a limit.

    “only 8 sims can search for HANS device parts at the same time”

  6. Do you have to complete this quest once you have started it? I just completed 1st set, and a few tasks on set two…and I only have three days left…. I am stuck at discuss with 5 sims task. Boy the Christmas quest Hans quest and mall quest and regular quest at the same time…. goodbye sleep for half a month.

    I was wondering if I let 3 days pass, would the quest end, and go away, or do I have to complete it? This is the worst quest ever… thank you for your posts, you have been very helpful. Feel free to shorten my question if you wish, before it gets published. I would like an answer to my question. Thanks.

  7. Will it be possible to start this over again like the snow problem quest? Cause I got 3 days to complete this and there isn’t much to do left. I missed too many and I would like to really start this one over.

  8. Do you know if this quest will return at some point? I already know I’m not going to finish it, and I’m fine with that.

  9. Did you know that when you first turn on Hans, say for the blue light, the entire home (including the basement) glows blue. But, if you go back and turn on lights in certain rooms, it will cancel the colored light for that specific room. Once it cancels for a room put your light on auto or off and the room will stay that way until you decide to change it. I had one house set with their entryway lit green. the rest of the house was normal. This would also be awesome I think in decorating for Christmas making the tree look like it is glowing. 🙂

  10. I have a problem.Basically i was doing the mission in which my sim has to talk to susan sparks for giving her the 50 parts of the Hans.I don’t know why but when i checked out if the mission was going on it seemed like if it had never started and susan disappeared.Please help me,otherwise i can get the dishwasher.

  11. Same here. I started the 3rd batch of tasks. I talked to Susan to discuss the solution then when the task finished, Susan disappeared and it never went on to the next task. She’s not on the simtracker too. She’s just gone.

  12. I had just started part 3 having waited for Susan. I then competed the first task ‘discuss hans solution’ with Susan, following which Susan promptly disappeared, and it still has ‘discuss hans solution’ as my next task. I can’t believe I’ve just wasted 5 days on this task and now I have no way of completing it. I’ve tried exiting, using different device, and so on – nothing helps.

  13. Asap! Susan is disappear on my neighbor house?! What to do. Im in the begining of set 3 and theres no many times left

  14. I’m currently having the same issue. I’ve given the 50 parts to Susan, and now I can’t find her. She’s not even on the sim tracker. Could this be a glitch?

  15. I was busy with quest HANS. At the point “Give parts to Susan Sparks” (15 minutes) something strange happened. My Sim was busy half way with “Give parts to Susan Sparks”, so +/- 7 min. I came back to house where Sim was busy. All of the sudden, Sim was free, again, Susan was gone, and I still have to give part to Susan. She is nowhere to be found?!?! What now?? I’m stuck, time is counting to the end of the quest.
    Help! Greetings

  16. That also just happened to me, my sim was giving Susan the 50 parts and when the task looked to be completed, I went back to my sim and Susan was gone and now the task is stuck on give her the parts.

  17. Does anyone known or has tried to search for parts in multiple houses and so have more than 8 sims at once doing that? Is that possible? Thanks!

  18. “Say farewell to Professor and Susan” is one task, completed with Professor, or after that we need another 4h to say farewell to Susan?

  19. Just an fyi – on the 50 Parts search, some of my sims are taking either 2 hours or 2.5 hours to search. I’m not sure of why there is a discrepancy, maybe some sims are just slow! 🙂

  20. Has anyone had trouble moving the stainless steel dishwasher? I placed it in my private island house and then decided I don’t like the way it looks where it is. I tried to move it, but it won’t let me click it. I can click and move other things without problem. I tried zooming closer and further, going to another house and coming back, restarting the game, restarting my iPad. Still can’t click it. Any ideas?

  21. I am about 71% through the HANS challenge, just collected parts and was 10 minutes into handing them to susan outside a sims house I went out of the house and into the town to collect money, went back to the house and sim where Susan had been with the sim, but the sim was standing alone and Susan had vanished and now I can’t find her to complete the rest of the tasks! I can’t progress as my task bar is still telling me to find Susan and hand the parts to her!
    HELP

  22. I have a huge bug/problem and I have no idea where to find the solution or what to do!
    I only have about 26 hours left of the event and I bought LP with my real money, to get through it!

    But I found all 50 objects and I spend 15 minutes, giving it to Susan. The action completed and then, when I returned to the house, Susan was just GONE, but the task is still there and I can’t find Susan anywhere, so I can’t redo the task!

  23. Hi, firstly, thank you so much for your help with this game, I always check your site before starting any quests, your walkthroughs are so helpful I wouldn’t complete any of them in time without your brilliant instructions. 😊
    To add to Lmi’s post above though, I’ve found that you can’t move the dishwashers if they are running a cycle, so if you’ve just loaded one up, it can’t be moved until the hour is up. Also, when you move them from one property to another via your inventory, they automatically start a new cycle when they are placed, so if you put them somewhere and decide to move it, you’ll have to wait an hour. I’m not sure if this is a glitch or not, but it’s a bit annoying!
    Hope that helps.
