Question about the Adventure Board
« on: January 06, 2010, 02:26:43 PM »
I was reading the guide about the Pangu ax (probably spelled that wrong) and it mentioned that there should be 5 adventures listed. However, whenever I check the board, I'm only giving one option -which I always accept. Does the board only show one adventure at a time and if you decline other adventures will more be generated for you or is something wrong with my game? Probably a silly question but...well....*shrug* can't help it... :-\

Just decline the adventures you don't want and others will be generated.  :)

Yep, decline them to see the next... I wouldn't recommend accepting then deleting them because I've run out, had to wait until midnight for the board to regenerate and ended up with the exact same set.. so you'll just have to do some of them to get the opportunity.

Ahhh, I didn't know you could do that! :-[ Plus, I was just really geeked and ready to play, so I just accepted whatever was thrown at me  :D

Thanks!

I think the adventure board also takes into account your Sim's experience and skills.  When you first go to China, for example, your Sim will get the easier adventures.  Then they get harder as you go along.  Pangu's Axe usually doesn't come up early on for me.  Another example, if your Sim is a high level photographer, there will be more adventures for taking pictures.

I recently was playing a new sim and the only adventures that kept coming up for him was the "board of tourism" thing that asks him to take a picture of something from a tomb. It literally came up over and over again about 8 times!  It was frustrating that it never would change, but at least they were easy adventures and he made it to the level 3 visa very quickly because all he did was continually go back into that Tomb of Discovery that's right next to Base Camp, to do the pictures. That's always the first adventure, so he had already "opened" everything in there, so it was easy to run back in there and get the pictures.

Well, I went back to China with my Travel couple and the Pangu's Ax quest didn't pop up for the husband. The wife already had a quest that I didn't want to dump. I was hoping the 2nd day though the Pangu's Ax quest would show up but it was the same ones as the day before. I think though I will have better luck getting that quest with the wife though as she has more experience and visa points and whatnot -so I guess it is off to France and then back to China  :( I really want that ax though so I hope it doesn't take too long!

If you take some extra pictures while you're in the tomb, you won't have to run back for them when you get the repeat adventure.  You'll be able to just hand them over!

Yeah I know that NOW....LOL  But I wasn't aware of the what all pictures would be needed until the adventure asked for them. But I guess that would have been the smart thing to do. Haha!  :D

I'm now trying to do much the same thing as Arafel, clear the adventures in the hopes of getting Pangu's axe.  But I keep getting the same set over and over!  I did the emperor's minitomb, up until the assassin bugs (which aren't spawning, thanks bug).  I keep getting asked for the writings of Qin Shan, which I think is a bug caused by my leaving them in the chest at home.  I did the three pieces of jade adventure, but that one keeps rolling up again too, and I keep getting asked for nectar--where do I get nectar in China?

Are there any particular skills I need to get the Pangu's Axe opportunity?  My Sims are pretty experienced in these tombs now, so I don't know why I'm not getting tomb adventures, just these silly collecting ones.  I've been in China for four days so far, and I'm getting fed up of these same boring options!

Hey Megtrog, sorry if you already know this, but I didn't realise at first - the assassin bugs don't spawn in the same place, I had to look around the map to find some more and they were in a totally different place :)

You have to go to France to get the nectar, then return to China.  A good strategy is to always carry nectar with you when traveling.

I didn't realise that, but my issue is that the most recent patch broke the bug-spawning, so beetles don't spawn.  When I was doing the adventure, I clicked on the map where the bug icons were, but there was nothing on the ground.  I can't complete that.

Pam, that's what I figured, that the nectar has to come from France.  I have a bunch of bottles in nectar racks back at home, but I didn't think to bring any with me.  I'm just infuriated that even after rejecting the adventure until the board won't give me anymore, the exact same adventures appear the next day.  It's always the Emperor's Statue, the Pieces of Jade, the Resolute Fist Tomb and the Nectar.  I've done the Jade (once) and the Tomb (three times), the bug's preventing me from continuing the Statue and I can't complete the Nectar on this vacation.

So far, I've found vacations very fun and enjoyable, but the lack of variety in adventures all of a sudden is making this trip very tedious.  I think I'll try having two of my Sims accept the Jade/Nectar adventures but not complete them.  Then maybe my remaining adult Sim will get something different.

Please feel free to move this if it is off topic, but does anyone else find that if one of your sims has explored tombs, then they are completed for everyone else in the neighbourhood? I have had to start a brand new game in order for them to reset themselves - a bit annoying. I can understand them being explored for that sim's family, but why the entire rest of the neighbourhood (and this was even after the original sim had died!)?

You mean you switched active households and took the new one traveling?  I don't think this has come up before, but it looks like you only have one set of adventures for each game file.  Interesting, but I can see how it would be annoying.

Yes, I created a brand new household and took them travelling, I was quite disappointed to discover most of the tombs were already completed. Also, the (high value) treasure does not respawn so all my new sim got was ancient coins, money bags and cheap relics.

That's interesting. This might explain the problem I had finding the Symbol of the Hall of the Lost Army. I played a different family first, but only dabbled in the first couple of tombs. Then I switched active house holds and am now playing a more serious collector, but can't find the first relic.

I wanted to update this.  I've not been playing the Sims much lately, but I finished the vacation in China, went home, and tried again.  The adventure board is still showing the exact same adventures.  Jade, Nectar, Emperor's Tomb, Writings of Qin Shan Hu.  It doesn't matter if I complete them, it doesn't matter if I get the other Sims in my party to accept the adventures and not complete them.

At this point, I think I'm going to have to accept that I'm never going to get Pangu's Axe with this household.  I'm curious to know if I'm the only person having this problem though?

If a family or Saved Game has done the Adventures before, then they won't show up, but my guess is you will have to do those to open up higher level adventures.

I've only got the one saved game, and I've never done Pangu's Axe.  I have completed all the adventures that are appearing on the board except for the Emperor's Tomb (I need to get hold of some more smelted copper to finish the next step in the chain).

I should try going to some of the other destinations and seeing if those Adventure Boards are also stuck.
