A question about the following project:
*Create 7 Simbots and give them to 7 elders

Does the term "Simbots" refer to the Cleaner-Bot, Party-Bot, Gardener-Bot, and Fixer-Bot?
I've never had a sim craft a servo before but can't figure out how a servo could be given to an elderly sim (except via Manage Households).

@reggikko: I'm sorry for my wording. "Start of game life in the household" is a better phrase. (Since adopted children don't really exist until you invoke them)

@oshizu: I interpreted it as servos that you would give to them via Manage Households. The other bots are much easier to craft, perfectly fine to do so but not project worthy unless we upped the number.

Trip is right. It's okay to use Manage households to distribute the Servos.

This challenge looks great!  There are so many different ways for our sims to be heroic!  I started my first trial to get my feet wet and have been having a lot of fun.

I have two questions so far.

First question:  For the N.A.P. S, if one of them gets voted in by the npcs before we are ready to do that project, do we have to repeal it, and then vote it back in again?

Second question:  I know that our heroes can do extra projects.  Can they work on multiple projects concurrently, or do they need to work on them one project at a time (consecutively).

No, you don't have to repeal it.

It partly depends on what you mean by "work on." Developing skills that can be used for a later project is fine. And I suppose accumulating things for a museum is also okay. But some of the projects will require your Sim's full attention. I won't say it's against the rules, but be careful.

My cheerful, Perfectionist, music lover sim already completed the Art Museum project, but has run into a bug with the the project below:
Max Chef or Mixology aspiration and prepare 7 excellent meals, 7 excellent gourmet meals, and 7 excellent drinks. Baked dishes and fizzy drinks may also count.*

I can see the quality of the meals she prepares, but clicking on a drink she mixes shows no tooltip so I can't determine the drink quality.
The price and quality of drinks made by other sims in the household display correctly.
I checked EA Answers HQ and found that two other simmers share my problem:
https://answers.ea.com/t5/Bug-Reports/NEEDS-INPUT-Drinks-Made-by-Perfectionist-Sim-Don-t-Show-Tool-Tip/m-p/9968564#M171860

My question is: May I have my sim buy a Retraiting Potion to get rid of her Perfectionist trait?
All she needs to complete that project is 7 excellent drinks.

@oshizu: well there aren't any rules against re-traiting and no one's brought it up. Do other solutions like repair game not work?

Thank you for your response @Trip

Since last fall (I forget which patch), Origin takes 7+ hours for a Repair Game operation, I don't repair my game very often anymore.
I'll try repairing my game tomorrow.  If that doesn't work, my sim will buy a Retraiting potion.

@oshizu: actually do the retraiting potion because I was able to recreate the problem in my game (yeah that finally came to mind!)

You are an angel for testing that for me! My sims and I thank you profusely! 💖

More on the topic of Perfection sims, drink quality, and the Chef/Mixologist project

@Trip
My sim bought and drank a Re-traiting Potion (replacing Perfectionist with Foodie) then made one drink.
Though the drink still lacked a tooltip indicating quality, her final task of the Master Mixologist aspiration changed as follows:
Create 5 types of excellent drinks 1/5

Mixing 3 more different drinks changed the "excellent drink" count to 4/5.
Finally, I used "Make Drinks for Everyone" to mix a batch of yet another different drink.
This last batch completed my aspiration, so I'm assuming my sim made 7 excellent drinks.

I have been repairing my game today.
Once it's repaired, I will reload my save and check if my re-traited mixologist's drinks show tooltips.

RE: Guide 7 different Sims to the top of Mt. Komorebi in one or more Mountain Excursions

My sim recently led two excursions.
We discovered that the excursion leader can invite along no more than 3 sims per event, so this project will require at least 3 excursions.  :)

@oshizu: that bug's so crazy. All I can hope is that it makes it into the next patch.

@Trip
After waiting 6+ hours for Origin to repair my game (rolls eyes), I reloaded my game.
(I got a message about an update which vanished before I finished reading it, but it made no sense.)

The wonderful news is that my re-traited ex-Perfectionist sim can now see drink quality and other info as soon as she places her created drink on the bar.
And now she can create her 7 excellent drinks for her project!

Thank you for encouraging me to repair my game. It took half a day, but it was worth it, haha.
