City Beach quest

A list of all quests (including timed quests) can be found here.

A quest is a grouping of one or more objectives that, upon completion, reward the player with various items. Where achievements are available to all players starting at level 1 and only have a single objective per achievement level; a quest can be either a single objective or multiple objectives. A quest can also require the player to be at a certain level, or have completed another quest, before the quest will begin.

A partially completed quest.

When any objective in the quest is completed, the game will display success indicators. If the quest has only one objective, or if all objectives are met, the success indicator will be displayed and then the reward window will appear giving the player the opportunity to share the reward with the player's neighbors.

Timed Quests

Megapolis Arena Timed Quest

Since Tue January 22, 2013, timed quests have become a staple of Megapolis. Timed quests are different from normal quests, and have a timed duration - usually 192 hours - in which the quest can be completed. After the timer reaches zero, the quest rewards can no longer be accessed, although the buildings and areas may still be available for construction. There is an option to extend the time by 24 hours for 3 Megabucks sm.png, which becomes available when there is less than 24 hours left on the timer to complete the quest.

Prior to Sat March 23, 2013 these events did not repeat and there was no intention to repeat them[1]. However, HawkeyeKeith suggested on Mar 23, 2013 that Social Quantum should repeat events for players who either started after the event ended, or for those players who were unable to complete the event within the time allotted. On April 2, 2013 the official position changed to "probably will be in the future (but not soon)"[2]. On April 8, 2013, the official position changed to "they will be repeated again in the future."[3]

On Sat August 10, 2013 the In Search of Atlantis quest, which had debuted on Tue February 19, 2013, was the first timed quest to be repeated. A timed quest can be repeated (if officially re-released) provided that all related buildings weren't purchased yet.

Since Wed March 6, 2019 players can participate in missed timed quests by starting construction of the related buildings greeted with "An exciting event seems to have taken place here". Only one timed quest can be started at a time, although if a new timed quest is released prior to the completion of the running one, it will start automatically; and two timed quests will be run simultaneously.

Every new TQs, since "Apocalypse Park", can be started on demand (under conditions above). Only TQs which are region locked (taking place in a region which is inaccessible), and TQs which can run even after timer expires cannot be started manually.

Timed quest rewards are not available after the event ends[4] but that doesn't applies to all timed quests. However, contracts related to completing buildings may continue to be unlocked, buildings completed post-quest (where applicable) that generate coins will start to do so, and additional construction sites that spawn upon completion of certain buildings also continue to appear.

List of Timed Quests

Usually, most timed quests are available for players who reached Level 30 although there are some exceptions as stated above.

Legends:
  • This color denotes the timed quests which are available for manual start if it has not been started before. When these timed quest was introduced, if the player didn't participate in it (i.e. did not built anything related to the construction), players can later go to the construction area (after the timer for the event expired) where they'll see a popup "An exciting event seems to have taken place here!" where they can click on the "Show!" button and a popup will arrive that this will start the TQ for them. If the player agree they'll have ~192 hours to complete it, and it'll be available for them personally. This is the system with most new TQs which takes place in the normal expansion zones (not Snowville/Cyberville/special contest zone). If they've started any of these TQ before but wasn't able to complete it, it can be restarted with the help of Discord Admins and they can complete it (the player gets only 72 hours to complete, however the time can be increased using Megabucks sm.png, or can be retried again at a later time).
  • This color denotes the timed quests which are available for all players even after the timer runs out thus cannot be started manually. There's one more type of TQs which can continue even after the timer expires. For example, "Railroad" or "Bus Station"; this quests automatically starts when a certain condition is met and will run as long as the player don't complete it, although the final reward may change after the timer expires.
  • This color denotes the timed quests which are region locked thus cannot be started manually.
  • This color denotes the timed quests which were available only during certain contests or special period such as Christmas, Thanksgiving, Earth Day, etc.
  • This color denotes the timed quests which are impossible to be started, even by the Discord Admins.
  • This color denotes the timed quests which are unavailable for uncertain reasons. For some old TQs, players who haven't completed it before can have the chance to restart it with the help of Discord Admins (with 72 hours time, extendable using Megabucks sm.png). However, the players may end up unable to complete these TQs as most of them requires the foundations for the buildings related to the TQ to be previously purchased as its no longer possible to buy them. One exception to this is "Megapolis-Dakar Rally"; because the related buildings to it can't be purchased on other times except when the TQ is running, it can be completed; although there is one infrastructure that is no longer possible to be build, however the Admins can help completing the task for the players.
