SimCity Social 'Accidentally on Porpoise' Quests: Everything you need to know


It's time to celebrate our furry and feathered animal friends in SimCity Social, as EA / Playfish has released a series of quests called "Accidentally on Porpoise" that will see you rewarded with a Dolphin Pool if you can finish them off. Unfortunately, you'll be timed in your journey to complete these quests, with only 12 days left to finish these quests in all. We're here with a look at how to complete these Accidentally on Porpoise quests, thanks to the game's official forums. Let's get started!

Pig in the City

  • Have Llama Manure

  • Buy Hog Heaven

Hog Heaven is a new decoration that can be purchased from the game's store for 2,800 Simoleons. It offers a population boost of 20. When you complete this first quest, you'll receive 1,000 Simoleons, 2 XP and a Megaquarium.

The Codfather

  • Build the Megaqurium

  • Have a 3-Star Scenic Pond

  • Feed the Fish at a 3-Star Scenic Pond 3 Times

The Megaquarium will bounce into your inventory when you complete the last quest, so you'll need to pull it out to actually build it. From there, it takes eight energy to construct, along with five Ticket Stubs, three Ribbon Prizes and three Kibbles. All of these items can be earned by asking your friends to send them to you. If you've kept your Scenic Pond that you receive at the very beginning of SimCity Social, it's likely that you have already upgraded it to Level 3, but if not, feel free to visit your friends' cities and tend theirs instead (you can tend the same one more than once, even in a friend's city).

Dive-In Movie

  • Upgrade the Megaquarium to 1-Star

  • Perform 5 Friendly Actions on Attractions

  • Build a Squid to PC Adapter

The Megaquarium can be upgraded using two Animal Mascots, five Ribbon Prizes, five Kibbles, two Cowbells and two Dog Houses, so be prepared to send out a ton of requests to your friends to finish this off. As for the Adapter, you can make one of those in the Computer Factory. Finally, the Friendly Actions tasks requires you to visit your friends' towns and click on their attractions like MiniGolf Parks, City Plazas and more.

Jumbo Upgrade

  • Upgrade the Megaquarium to 2-Star

  • Earn 8,000 Simoleons from the Elephant Car Wash

  • Collect from Car Dealerships 5 Times

The Elephant Car Was can be unlocked at 40,000 Sims of population or with 80 Diamonds. It costs 99,000 Simoleons to purchase and you'll be able to collect from it every 22 hours. As for the Megaquarium upgrade, this second one requires four Souvenirs, one Unity, six Ribbon Prizes, six Kibbles and four Dog Houses to complete. It will boost the items' population boost from 149 to 277.

A Porpoise with a Purpose

  • Upgrade the Megaquarium to 3-Star

  • Ask friends for 3 Dolphin Holiday Packages

The Dolphin Holiday Packages task is incredibly straightforward, as you'll earn these items by simply posting a news item to your wall, asking your help. For the final Megaquarium upgrade, you'll need to collect tree Architectural Pizzazz, two Bliss, two Wrath, six Animal Mascots and four Cowbells. Your final reward for this feature is the Dolphin Pool, a decoration that gives a population boost of 53 to a range of five squares.

Again, you'll only have the next two weeks to finish all of these quests, so make sure you're playing as often as you can to complete them in time. Good luck!
