Prize: Haunted House

Is the prize worth it? Yes it really is, its a cool house with lots of haunted items already in it, if you count up the amount of items that cost LPs in the house, buying this house is cheaper than making a similar one yourself!

Costs: Now the first one is free then after that it costs simoleons, price varies on the amount of houses you already have built

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT THIS QUEST

please read before asking

I have missed this quest! Why can’t I start it yet?
You cannot miss main quests they have to be completed in order. You need to complete all previous quests (list can be found here) and reach level 22 before you can start this quest

Can I complete this quest even though I am passed level 22?
Yes, you just need to complete all previous quests then this quest will start automatically

Why are there two versions of this quest?
Some quests have two versions, as when the makers have updated the times for quests they haven’t updated them on all devices so some players still get the old times

How do I send my sim to the park?
Go to the park and click on the whistle next to a sim who isn’t busy on the simtracker, this post explains more about the simtracker

Why do blue footprints appear when I try to use an item?
Blue footprints appear when your sim cannot access an item you want them to use, you need to either rotate the item or move an item that has been placed in front of it so they can use it

What do you mean when you say a goal can be started early?
Any goal that you can normally do can be started early because you will have access to it and any goal that you can’t normally do you will have to wait until you get the goal to be able to complete it
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

What do I get if I complete this quest in the time limit?
The haunted house

What happens if I don’t complete in the time limit, can I still finish this quest?
Yes you have to finish it to unlock the ghost hunting hobby before you can move onto the next quest

I didn’t complete in the time limit, can I restart the quest?
No, you cannot redo quests

Can I still get the prize if I don’t complete in the time limit?
No, the only way to get the limited time prizes is by completing the quest in the time limit

I don’t like this quest! Can I just skip it?
No, you have to complete this quest before you can move onto the next one

Some times are slightly different on my game, why is this?
Times may vary depending on the star rating of the item you are using, as the higher star rating an item has the quicker you will complete a goal

Some times are really off/ different goals show for me, why is this?

This will be because the quest has been updated recently, I try my best to keep these posts up to date but it is difficult as I cannot redo every quest each time the game is updated. If you notice any changes please let me know so I can update the post

Haunted items need recharging, you have to wait before using them to search again (you can get around this by getting as many haunted items as possible in your house)

Time for recharging varies depending on the star rating the haunted object has:

  • 3 star- 10 minutes
  • 2 star- 20 minutes
  • 1 star- 30 minutes

7.What ghosts are there to collect?

8.What do I win?

The first time you complete this hobby you unlock an item for each row:

  • Sixth row: Teen Roman Costumes (free in wardrobe under outfits for teens)

The first time you complete the whole collection you unlock the ghost containment tank which can be found in the decorations section and costs S8,000

Further times you get 5LPs
9.I cant find one of the ghosts, any tips?
The only advice I can give you is to keep going, that is the only way you can find them- there is no trick to it, its completely random
10.It it worth using lucky spin?
I would say no, it doesn’t give you one that you need it just gives you one at random so really it is probably just a waste of LPs
11.How do I start the collection again?

Once you have completed the collection you can click start collection again at the bottom of the ghosts collection list to start again
