The handiness events in the Challenge Tournament have always been popular. This year’s event will be a bit different because it’s not a team event, but rather dealing with a single Sim. The scoring is also different — as opposed to having to upgrade 4 entire worlds as fast as possible, your goal is to upgrade as much as you can in the 4 worlds in the set 4 game weeks. Plus, the Unique Upgrade % scoring component will add a new strategy element. Here we go…
General Challenge Rules
The General Challenge Rules always apply. If applicable, exceptions will be noted below.
Specific Challenge Rules
- Create 1 Young Adult Sim (no pets).
- You may not add to the household.
- How you go about upgrading an object is your choice.
- If you have the solar panels and wind mill from the Eco Pack, DO NOT upgrade them. It will mess up your score.
- You are allowed only 3 vacations — length of each vacation is up to you.
- This challenge ends at Week 4, Day 7, 11:59 PM.
Simple, simple, simple for this time around — no spreadsheet necessary. Open up your Sim’s Handiness Skill Journal and note the Objects Upgraded stat. Jot that down and multiply that by the Percent of Unique Upgrades Completed stat for your final Total. Drop all decimals when submitting your score.
Here’s an example: You get to Week 4, Day 7, 11:59 PM and you pause your game. Your Handiness Skill Journal has Objects Upgraded: 138. The Percent of Unique Upgrades Completed stat is 96%.
138 X .96 = 132.48
Final Total = 132
Challenge Begins: January 2
Challenge Ends: January 29
