Mystery Island Goals

The Mystery Island update is finally here!

Part 1 - Money Grows On Trees?
1. Ponder in a Lounge Chair - § 50
2. Grow Potatoes - § 50
3. Make a Double Shot of Coffee - § 50
4. Grow Watermelon - § 50
5. Make a Hot Snack in the microwave - § 50
6. Catch some Zs on a Couch - § 75

9. Negotiate with a Sim-Eating Plant - § 100
10. Bake Donuts - § 150
11. Grow a Simoleon Sprout in the Garden - § 50


The simolean sprout is a plant which can be grown every four hours. Once its been planted (immediate) you are taken to a slots type of game. It costs §250 and you are guaranteed at least §350 back in winnings. I normally get §350 but once hit the §15,000 jackpot! Multiple story homes, here I come!

Part 2. Mysterious Island
1. Watch the News on TV - § 50
2. Go for a Drive - § 50
3. Be on Hold to Tech Support on the Phone - § 100
4. Wash Hands - § 25
5. Build the Bridge on the Town Map - § 50 (mine took 30 hours but I have a lot of buildings)
6. Visit the Mysterious Island - § 50
7. Tap the Monument Icon
8. Read Encyclopedia - § 150
9. Call a Friend - § 25
10. Catch a Ghost - § 50
11. Grill 'em All on a BBQ - § 125
12. Bake Pancakes - § 75
13. Bake Cookies - § 50
14. Read the Big Book of Stuff - § 200
15. Browse Internet - § 50
16. Fall Asleep in the Bath - § 75
17. Have a Deep Sleep - § 125
18. Rest Eyes on a Couch - § 50
19. Grow Onions - § 100
20. Rich Lather in the Shower - § 25
21. Find Another Resource - § 100
22. Upgrade 'The Riches of Terra' to Level 1 - § 100


See the fire icon on the left between the cashed in simoleans? That is bonus XP for planting. On the right the brown rock is bonus simoleans. Its not much and its random but hopefully this will help all the simmers who complain about the high cost of stuff.

People who need immediate gratification in a game like this are troubling. The sims is all about waiting and patience. If you lack both in a simulated environment how will you handle your bills outside of it?
