I got the Friend of the Kraken lifetime reward, and I'm having a big problem getting it work on anyone.
I click on boats that are moving and it says "The Kraken doesn't seem to be able to attack this boat." Some boats are often in too shallow water, which makes sense, but very few Sims seem to go out to the open ocean. Even when they do, I still get it as they are driving...so I'm wondering if the boat has to be stationary in order for the Kraken to be able to attack it. In which case, how bloody useless, because none of the Sims around town ever randomly stop in the middle of the ocean. They're always driving somewhere, and they rarely venture very far from shore.
Any help, tips or advice?! I was really looking forward to seeing the Kraken and setting it on people, but it seems like that won't be happening anytime soon...
I followed a boat with two ppl in it till it stopped at a dive site. Only one person got out so it stayed for a bit and I was able to click release the Kraken. All it did was take my sim to the nearest shore then she stood there doing nothing. I hit it again and still nothing happened. Go to try it again and the option is grayed out. Something is definitely weird with this feature.

As part of a story, I had to have a couple get attacked by the kraken. I had another person move in with them & get the lifetime wish. Then, made them stop in the middle of the ocean (from what I've read, the depth of the ocean and they have to be sitting still is what the keys are).
So, I did it once and I had my pause & "c" buttons ready for pictures. Unfortunately, it happened WAY too fast. So, I had to do it multiple times until I finally was able to get pictures. It takes FOREVER because once an attack happens, you can't have the kraken attack for another 24 sim hours. So, I finally got smart, had my people all ready, saved the game, then clicked attack. Then, if it was too fast, I'd just reload my game (without saving it) and attack again.
I finally got my shots for my story! Here's just one:
