Outdoor Herbalist: Sleeping in a tent
« on: May 02, 2015, 01:51:07 PM »
I was hoping for some tips about the Outdoor Herbalist's Milestone IV requirement: Sleep 5 nights in a tent

I've never been able to complete this requirement and I wonder if it's because one of the first rewards I buy is Never Weary.
So three questions:
(1) How many hours of sleep corresponds to "one night"?
(2) Does the aspiration count the number of hours slept in a day, or does the sleep have to occur overnight?
(3) Are the sleep hours cumulative? For example, would two 5-hour sleeps equal a one-night sleep?

Should a sim planing to do this aspiration hold off on buying Never Weary?
Perhaps I'm just not exercising enough patience, but my current sim never seems to sleep enough each night in a tent.  Maybe wait until his Energy's in the red?

Edit: Should I have posted this in the Outdoor Retreat portion of the forum?

I have managed to get this, even with a sim with the Never Weary reward.

These are the two things that seemed to matter:

1. The sleep has to take place at night -- send your sim to bed between 9pm and 12am.
2. The sim has to get a full sleep (i.e., the green circle around the tent in the lower left corner has to complete), and the sim has to wake up on his own. Do not click on the hungry icon -- that will wake him up too quickly. In fact, don't queue up anything for your sim.

Hope these help.

I think I read somewhere that it has to be at least 6 hours sleep. I find it tricky too as most of my sims have the Never Weary reward. Takes me two days to get one night's sleep. I do wait until their sleep/energy is in the red or very low anyway. It's not cumulative, it has to be a complete nights sleep to count as one night in a tent. As long as your sims wakes up on his/her own and it's been at least 6 hours it should tick off one night in a tent on the requirements.

@MarianT  Thanks so much for your answers.

I'd never even noticed the tent icon with the green circle before.
My sim tried sleeping in the tent after staying up until his Energy was in the red.
As you suggested, I didn't queue up any other actions and just ignored him until he woke naturally.

He now has one night done.  Thanks so much for your help!

@Playalot, hmmm six hours minimum.  I was too nervous and just waited till he woke. On the plus side, he got one night's sleep in one night (his Energy was deeply in the red, lol).

Cool! Glad you got it sorted...I  meant that it takes my never weary sims two days until their energy hits red. Sorry, a bit confusing in my explanation there!  ::)

Thanks for clarifying.  After reading your post, I began wondering if "hours slept" is an accumulative value.

An update on sleeping in a tent.

My never-weary sim is also unemployed, so I'd been having trouble getting his Energy in the red by bedtime due to his inconsistent daily schedule.
The last two times, I just sent him to whenever he'd run Energy into the red zone. Although once he went to sleep at 10 am and another time at 3:30 pm, then sleeping until awaking naturally, each of these sleeps were counted as one of the "Sleep 5 nights."

This must be a hard requirement for a never-weary sim with a job....

Does the tent have to be in Granite Falls, or can we complete the interaction on home lot?

I googled with the keywords "Outdoor Enthusiast tent" and discovered my own thread from two years ago, lol.
Since that time, I've completed that aspiration a couple of times with a sim who had what has been renamed the Seldom Weary trait (4,000 satisfaction points).

Recently, I unthinkingly started on Outdoor Enthusiast with a sim who (I only remembered later) has the new Never Weary trait (the one for 10,000 satisfaction points).
It's impossible to get her Energy into the red zone before sleeping and she always wakes up after several hours.
So, if you want to complete Outdoor Enthusiast, don't be an idiot like me. Use a sim who hasn't bought the new Never Weary trait.
Arrgggghhh. I'll just complete the aspiration using another sim...
