Mushy Maestro's final reward is a Giant Neko, which would otherwise cost you 28,000 coins to purchase in the store. You'll only have two weeks to finish them off, but we're here with a guide to completing these quests, straight from the Playfish forums, so let's get started!
- Use 5 Investments
- Have a 3-Star Toy Factory
- Collect from the 3-Star Toy Factory
You'll receive 5,000 Simoleons, 5 XP and an Imperial Palace for completing this quest.Imperial Ambition
- Build the Imperial Palace
- Collect BBQs
- Produce 1,000 Materials
The Imperial Palace takes up a lot of land space, so you might have to expand before you can place it in your city. Actually finishing the construction of the Imperial Palace requires quite a few building materials: 3 Souvenirs, 4 Hard Hats, 1 Unity, 1 Bliss, 2 Holiday Snapshots, 2 Plows. When you complete this quest, you'll earn 7,500 Simoleons and 8 XP.Light and Dark
- Upgrade the Imperial Palace to 1-Star
- Complete 3 Rival Actions
- Complete 3 Twin City Actions
You'll need 5 Ticket Stubs, 4 Medals of Bravery, 4 Harmony, 3 Lunch boxes and 3 BBQs to complete this first upgrade, along with Materials and Simoleons to fill the bar. You'll earn another 10,000 Simoleons and 12 XP for finishing this quest.From the Ground Up
- Upgrade the Imperial Palace to 2-Stars
- Collect Unity
- Start 5 Farm Crops
The second stage of the Imperial Palace upgrade requires five different items to complete: 5 Architectural Pizzazz, 5 Community, 3 Fury, 2 Trust and 5 Holiday Snapshots. After that you'll need to have over thousands of Simoleons and Materials to actually complete the upgrade. Hopefully, you have a large stockpile of both.Monster Profits
- Upgrade the Imperial Palace to 3-Stars
- Produce 10,000 Simoleons
- Introduce the Teriyaki Chicken Burger
- Collect 1 Holiday Snapshot

The Chicken Burger task can be completed in a Burger Joint, while the High Tech Toilet needs to be installed in a Fire Station. You'll earn 2,500 Simoleons and 5 XP for completing this quest.
- Stop 3 Fires
- Use Medals of Bravery
Rewards: 1,000 Simoleons and 5 XP
Make Me One With Everything
- Build the Tea Garden
- Collect 3 Tencha Leaves from Botanical Gardens
- Study Shinto Legend 5 Times
The Shinto Legend can be studied in a 3-Star History Museum, but you can tend the same one multiple times. For the Tencha Leaves task, you'll need to collect from three different gardens, so just visit some rather high-level friends and you should be fine. Finally, the Tea Garden can be purchased from the store for 12,000 Simoleons.
Cool It, Bradley
- Witness Brad's Tea Cooling Powers
- Collect from 10 Businesses
The Tea Cooling Powers can be "witnessed" at a completed Tea Garden.
Brad on the Beat
- Be Friendly at 5 Diners
- Be Friendly at 5 Furniture Factories
- Be Friendly at 5 Mayor's Houses
These tasks can be completed by simply visiting friends and choosing nice actions, rather than mean ones.
Something Fishy Going On
- Build the Sushi Factory
- Collect Lunchboxes
- Stop 5 Fires
The Sushi Factory is only unlocked to users that have at least 14,000 Sims living in their towns, or you can unlock it early for 28 Diamonds. Once you purchase it (the price is apparently 160,000 Simoleons), you'll need to collect five Business Savvy, six Punchcards, five Elbow Grease and five Fury to actually finish it off.
Sushi to Go
- Upgrade the Sushi Factory to 1-Star
- Collect from a Supermarket 3 Times
- Acquire a Simoto Blade
The final upgrade of the Imperial Palace requires some rather rare collectibles, but we've come too far to stop now: 2 Souvenirs, 3 Harmony, 2 Unity, 2 Bliss, and 5 Plows. To finish off this final quest and the final Imperial Palace upgrade, you'll need to click within the upgrade menu a whopping 18 times, with each click costing 5,000 Simoleons and 1,250 Materials. When you finish this quest, you'll earn the Giant Neko and will have plenty of bragging rights to share with your friends.
It's funny to think that Playfish previously stated that SimCity Social's timed quests wouldn't become "work," but this definitely seems like plenty of work to me. Perhaps the game's most dedicated players will fly through with ease, but I imagine many mid-level or casual players will struggle to finish even the first Imperial Palace upgrade. At least with this guide, you'll see what's ahead of you from the very beginning, and can decide whether or not to even bother trying.
