Well, I finished all of the requirements for the first town and moved my Sim to the next through the phone interaction, got the town set up, saved... Then realized that the second town's day is set to Week 1, Day 1 at 8:00 am. It's my first time moving a Sim that way through the phone to a separate town, so perhaps I messed something up when editing Appaloosa Plains to put in the lots I needed.

Then I do not think something is right. Let's say you finished Town 1 on Week 1, day 5 at 5:36 PM and you move. What SHOULD happen is the game clock in Appaloosa should say Week 1, Day 5 8:00 AM. After a move the clock does go to 8 am but you do not lose weeks or days. You may have a bugged file. Go back to a save before the move.

@ramblinghaggis — I removed your post because there was information in it that (assuming a player did NOT know the information) could change how a player approached strategy if they had not started yet.

Just to confirm (I'm going to attempt this, crazily enough), the Mixology is to be maxed and not necessarily supermaxed, correct? If I do manage it, I don't want to DNF myself because I misunderstood ;D

It's just the skill that needs to be maxed. The skill challenges are up to you.

Awesome, thank you. It'll give me something to do while I rage at my 4x4 file for freezing on the return trip from China. :)

I just bought World Adventures as the sale was just too good to pass up. I've started this and I may be in over my head. My goal is to not die!

I'm having trouble with the spreadsheet. The week and day fields are missing in town 1 and 2. Was it changed or is it me?  Anyway -

Town One  Week 3  Day 3 6:15pm           
China Day 3, 11:42pm

Town Two  Week 4  Day 2  5:57am
Egypt  Day 4, 6:02am

Town Three  Week 6 Day 7  4:37pm
France  Day3, 2:03am

I've got no total due to my spreadsheet issues. This was fun in a masochistic sort of way, and I learned a lot.

Oh, Lisa, that's too bad. Do you have a previous save? Usually the team will let you go back to that, although travel bugs do tend to be persistent.

I apologize if this is redundant but looking through the other posts I wasn't able to rid my confusion on the following from the rules:

Quote
You must take 3 different vacations (you can only take one vacation while in each town) — one in Egypt, one in France, and one in China.

Then a few lines down:

Quote
NOTE: You can go to a given vacation destination more than once if necessary to finish requirements — for example, while your home town is Sunset Valley you end up going to France two times (but you would not be able to go to China or Egypt).

So does this mean that if you went to France in one town you can go to France again to complete the requirements but you can't go to another destination? But, if the previous is correct then could you go to multiple locations if you finish the requirements of the first vacation in one trip? Or, one vacation, one town, means one destination spot with multiple attempts if needed to finish the requirements, which is the reason for the second vacation entry on the spreadsheet per town?
