PostSubject: Are you Ready for a New Patch? And the Day of the Dead!   Tue Sep 27, 2016 6:59 pm

Update: 09/27/2016 – PC Version 1.23.24.1010 / Mac Version 1.23.24.1210
Afternoon, Morning, and Evening Simmers!
…in that exact order (but only if you are traveling West)
We have just a quick content add for you, so without ado of a furthering type
…the New Stuff
Some new stuff for your Sims to celebrate the Day of the Dead!
…which technically isn’t until the end of October.
… but they’re Sims. So, technically any day can be the end of October.
I’m reminded of the famous quote, “Today will not be known as Taco Tuesday. It will be known as Freedom Friday, but still on a Tuesday!”

So you were saying, what’s new?
A new recipe for Pan de Muerto is available under the Cook… interaction.
Several new objects are available for your Sims to decorate their homes. Search for the term “Day of the Dead” in Buy Mode to find…
Two new wall hangings, a table, some candles, and a sculpture.
There are also several new outfits for your Sims in Create a Sim!
Male and Female Sims have a new full body outfit, plus face makeup.
Female Sims have a new hair, and Male Sims have a new hat.
Children also have a new full body outfit and face makeup.

And since we are on the subject of October… turns out Oct 1st marks the end of a quarter… so, that’s a thing.
Also, the end of a quarter has ridges.
Did you know that if you are only looking at one side of a ridge, you can’t see the other side? But if you wait, and let yourself move forward… just a short bit, you might find yourself on the other side of the ridge, able to see more.

Is it better on the other side? It might be, but I suppose in the end it all depends on the perception of which side of the quarter you are looking from, and prefer.

And with that little bit of wisdom, I wish you a happy Release Tuesday!

I do like the outfits included in the patch.
Most likely will not use them all the time though.

Found this at SimsVIP
How To Complete the “Day of the Dead” Challenge in The Sims 4

I used Debug to add a grave headstone to my lot. I do have the option “Leave Sugar Skull Offering” but so far have not found the NPC Celebrator to ask for a skull.

Thank you! I wonder if the NPC Celebrator won't be in our games until they enable the challenge. hmm

Nomnomnom
I got the Sugar Skull thing to work!
I waited til after 10pm (not sure if it matters)
Had Roderick leave sugar skull offering.
First I paused then after panning the camera out a bit I saw a Sim dressed in the Day of the Dead costume.
Hovering over her it showed her as a Day of the Dead celebrant.
It was a Sim I had moved into a household but not played.
Unfortunately although my Sims knew her they had not talked much. It took a bit if conversation to get higher than acquaintance but I successfully asked for a Sugar Skull.
I was awarded with "Kevin" a blue skull.

There seems to be a limit of once per day to ask.
Luckily I now have 2 Kevin's, a Graham, a Jeff and a Nadia.

So, what will the Day of the Dead Challenge be? Glad you asked! Jasmine Holiday is coming back on October 4 at 10am PT and will be around until November 4 at 10am PT. She will be available to get your Sim started with the Sugar Skull Display Case! From there, your Sim can head out and meet Day of the Dead Celebrators out in their neighborhood, and use the “Ask for Sugar Skull” interaction. When your Sim has collected all of the ones available from the NPCs, a final Sugar Skull will be unlocked for completing the collection.

Now that the Day of the Dead challenge is live I decided to start a new save. My Sim did call Jasmine right away. I placed a debug headstone on the lot but it was not really needed. Several Sims were wandering around in the special outfits and we're tagged as Celebrants. The trick is to chat long enough to become friends. She already has 3 skulls to my happy surprise.

I had a hard time as well. At work now so cannot show picture of where it is found.
Try searching using debug as the search word.
I will try to post more later.
In the meantime keep an eye out for any Sim dresses in the Day of the Dead costume and makeup.

I met Jasmine Holiday and I didn't need a gravestone. It takes a lot of hard work. Some simmers simply won't give you a sugar skull (fx Erik Villareal). He won't celebrate with neither friends or enemys. I have 8 different skulls now. So i'm off to a lot af persuasion Big Grin

I'm playing an old save that has a ghost I want to resurrect. Only have 2 sugar skulls. Sometime when I play there are no opportunities to chat up any one. The costumed Sims seem to come in waves or not at all and a lot of the time my Sims can't get an interaction with one. They just won't stop. Very frustrating. Only have had one Day of the Dead Sim reject a request for a skull over and over again. Have had the Sims travel to another neighborhood but that doesn't help. Even had them go out to a club and had them choose painted faces to go with them but the Sims didn't show up with their faces painted so my Sims just tried to chat with them ( to maybe help the relationship along?).

The first DOTD celebrator I met was Johnny Zest. I chatted him up to a good friend and he still wouldn't give me a skull. Then I realized I hadn't left a sugar offering at a grave on my lot.

So next, I left the sugar offering and then I had several DOTD sims walking around and was able to get sugar skulls. I only have three so far.
