MAY 17 - It's Patch Day for The Sims 4 on Console! Patch notes here.

Can you actually "beat" World Adventures?

Has anyone tried completing all the adventures in all the countries? Is it possible, or do they just start repeating after a while?

    I tried, but failed as a dungeon in France bugged out on me.

    There are 2 types of adventures. Non-repeatable ones and repeatable ones. The non-repeatable ones are usually part of a multi-quest story arc and require your sim explore tombs at one or more points in the story arc. These adventures will often unlock tombs so they are essentially required if you want your sim to explore all the tombs in the game.

    The repeatable ones are simple one-step quests usually having your sim interact with the residents in some way. They don't unlock any tombs although 1 repeatable adventure in Egypt has your sim retrieve a random relic in a random tomb. (IMO) The repeatable adventures are part filler to earn visa points, and are for other active sims (like future generations) to earn visa levels.

    I've had sims complete all the non-repeatable adventures in all 3 worlds several times (to complete all collections and explore all tombs). I doubt I've had a sim complete all the repeatable adventures. You'd have to keep track of those manually somehow and I haven't bothered.

    I completed one adventure in Egypt, the tombs were easier, the second adventure in France was hard as you have to find sims then find the item or exchange it for something else but it was good gameplay.

    Ahhh, that was very informative. Thank you.

    Do you know if the repeatable adventures can be picked up more than once by the same Sim?

    If you have 2 visa levels in Egypt, purchase 'tear of horus' from special merchant. It will show the locations of all treasure and tombs in all countries and it will be easier to explore tombs. Also easier to find the hidden doors as well. Also, the adventure board will be bugged after visa level 2, especially in France. Use the Master Controller mod to get the adventure opportunity manually. I was able to complete all tombs with Master Controller mod, otherwise I would never get 'nectary quest' in France. Nraas->MasterController->Basic->Opportunity by category->adventure.

    If you have Into the future installed, use jetpack for collecting gems and metals that the residents ask for. It's like no cheat teleport stuff, so you can finish the quests much faster.

    @Jeansoo ...Dang it, I was hoping to do this without mods. It's not that I consider them "cheating" or anything...I just don't like using them for some difficult-to-explain reason.

    Thanks for the heads up!

    Yes, they can. But usually not more than once per day. One repeatable adventure in Egypt is to take a picture of something (ancient coins, sphinx, mummy, etc.) and deliver it to a resident for a brochure. Once completed that won't show up on the board the rest of the day but will pop up again the next day or the day after. The repeatable ones generally have somewhat random details (who to deliver wine to in France, how much jade to gather for someone in China, etc.).

    I've never had an issue with the adventure board in France and I recently learned that was probably due to having the NRaas Traveler mod installed. Apparently the mod has some fixes for adventure board bugginess. I don't usually use MC to give adventures to my sim because it's not always straightforward which adventure is the first in a chain.

    What do you mean by "use the jetpack for collecting gems and metals" ? It doesn't automatically pick them up does it? Or did you mean use it to fly to the lot nearest them once you find them?

    I just installed the mod that @TreyNutz mentioned, and it actually fixed that bug where my Sim would sometimes look at the Adventure Board and nothing would happen! 10/10 would recommend!
