Spring Challenge 2016

What is the Spring Challenge 2016 ?

The Spring Challenge 2016 consists of two parts: The Grow Fruit Challenge and the Hunt Eggs Challenge. Details about them both can be found here: Grow Growfruit and Hunt Eggs in The Sims 4 Spring Challenge. Both are limited in time, starting March 22nd for about a month.

The Hunt Eggs Challenge is basically the same as last year, except that you can find to extra (glowing) eggs

Where can I find my Bunny reward ?

After you found all 12 eggs, you’ll get a Stuffed Bunny as reward. Check the mail box and afterwards find the Bunny in your family inventory. To my knowledge, there is no badge for this collection.

My egg collection says 10 eggs instead of 12

There are 12 slots in the collection for you to fill. Once you have found one or two of the new eggs, the collection will show as 10 + 2 (or 1)

How can I get a Grow Fruit ?

You can get a grow fruit seed through Jasmine, the challange coordinator or find them randomly spawning around the world. The location it spawns is random but can be found anywhere where wild fruit tree spawn.

You can only get one seed per Sim. If something goes wrong, just try with another Sim.

Where do I find Jasmine ?

Jasmine can be found in the community gardens in different worlds. There’s one in Willow Creek behind the BFF house and diagonally across the Goth Mansion or in Oasis Springs opposite the Zest household.

Just wait a few minutes for her to arrive. It may also depend on the time of day. I’m not sure if she spawns at night.

Be aware that if you are using MC Command Center 2.7.1 and below that she won’t be called Jasmine but a random name. She still looks like Jasmine shown on the Website and will be highlighted as Challenge-Coordinator.

There are also a handful of mods like walk_by2x.package that conflict with the game and will keep Jasmine from appearing at all

I can’t find a single wild grow fruit tree

If you play an existing game and have no tree sprouts in your town, you will not get any as only tree sprouts are randomly replaced. Already full grown trees won’t be replaced. So you’re best chances of finding them are areas you haven’t explored before.

If you have none, you can kill off your trees by taking two cuttings in a row. After that you’ll get the option to dispose of the dead tree.
Dispose

Will my trees go back to normal after the challenge ?

Full grown trees will stay at grow tree but sprouts will get back to normal after the challenge. There is a very small chance that they will be grow tree even after the challenge is over.

If your town is overtaken by grow fruit trees, you can dispose of them as described in I can’t find a single tree.

You will also keep your unlocked planters and bunny.

I missed the challenge, can I still get the planters, bunny, eggs and the grow fruit ?

They are available through buydebug.

  1. Go to build mode
  2. Open the cheat console with ctl-shift-c
  3. Type: bb.showhiddenobjects true
  4. To unlock the planter and bunny, also type: bb.ignoregameplayunlocksentitlement true
  5. There will be a new content filter called Debug. Activate that to help find the stuff.
