FYI: step 13 of the photography career quest is also a lllamazoom on my now level 17 account, instead of four long hangouts.
alas the struggle of miss managed time I'll finish this task but not the last two before time runs out
Although I did buy this one on day two after missing llama completetion twice. But was still making efforts to get the extra rewards for quest's

I saw on Twitter that you were unable to finish step 17 of the photography quest on your new alt account. I agree, completing SIX long shifts is unrealistic for a new account. Especially for the following reasons:
My alt account was a little higher than yours, so I had a few LlamaZooms on steps, including step 17. I’d argue that my LZ step with a few quick shifts was a heck of a lot easier than your step 17 with six long events. Plus, it was fortuitous that it aligned with a LZ for the dance career too.
A friend of mine suggested that I spend $10 USD on my alt account to get a 3rd and 4th sim, and then never spend money on it again. Reluctantly, I agreed to do this, and believe it’s the only reason why I’m able to complete the photography career quest. It is very clear to me that completing the photography quest on a level 6-14 account is impossible for anyone without 4 sims.
I love TSM and have been a daily player since launch day, but I’d like to respectfully discourage any new player from spending their time completing the photography quest, unless they are willing to spend money upfront for a 3rd and 4th sim. I believe that the demands placed on new players for this quest were unrealistic and cash-grabby. I’m pretty disappointed and hope they scale future quests back to be more manageable for new players... since THAT was their target audience for the photography quest.
I want to thank the devs for such a great game, but I just want to say things like this really ruin the experience. I would say this and Izzy’s shop giving me clothes on retry with the same trait 3 times in a row were the most infuriating experiences I had in game.
i grinded for this achievement for 3 #@$#&#* days to find the last step to be a time gated event that’s basically impossible to finish without spending simcash... I finished the Sequined Dreams part 1 with a bit over an hour to finish and I was ready to spend cupcakes to get that last event, only to find that it will only let me do the quest again 3 hours from now 😡
In reality all games are like this sure it's free but the throw in impossible time quest's to one keep you constantly baby sitting it. Or two push you to spend money. It's kinda any free games push is to get you to spend cash because they did offer for you to purchase the dance quest for 19.99 and got all the clothes from the second quest. On top of that they offered the photography one for life tokens which if you didn't have enough you had to purchase those. But that's how they keep the game free is giving you things you really want but don't give you enough time to get them so you spend money or become a game zombie 😂 which most of us have lives and family's and can't spend 24 hours glued to a phone to do quest's it may be on a mobile but our entire existence isn't attached to a phone. Now I did buy both and still tried to complete the mission which I won't be able to thanks to the last two tasks of double llama and the double quest's with time limit in between and won't spend more to complete the quests on one I already own.
