2016 Handiness World Championships

2016 Handiness World Championships

This event will require a balancing act of making as much money as possible selling woodworking items and also taking time away from that in order to boost your multiplier via performing unique upgrades.

General Challenge Rules
The General Challenge Rules always apply.

Specific Challenge Rules

  • Create one human Sim in CAS.
  • No adding to the household.
  • You are allowed to use the Buydebug cheat for the sole purpose of purchasing a satellite to prevent abductions.
  • All income is restricted to selling Woodworking items via inventory – no retail stores allowed.
  • Selling items purchased to level up handiness is not allowed.
  • Be careful NOT to complete Fabulously Wealthy because the investment income is not allowed.
  • This challenge ends when your Sim ages up to Adult.


Scoring is a combination of your Household Funds multiplied by a percentage to indicate the number of unique upgrades you have made. You start the challenge with a multiplier of 1.00 and for each unique upgrade (a unique upgrade has its own name) you make 1% (.01) is added to the multiplier.

When your Sim ages up to Adult, pause your game and note your Household Funds. Multiply that figure by the Unique Upgrades multiplier for your Total.

Scoring Example = Your Sim has 100,000 simoleans when they age up to Adult. They have also completed 23 unique upgrades.
Total = 100,000 X 1.23 = 123,000

Important: You are responsible for keeping a list of all unique upgrades for your UU Multiplier. The team may ask you to provide this information, but do not list them when you provide your final score. Uniques Upgrades are upgrades that have different names. So, even though Fridge of Steel (Refrigerator) and Firaxium Wiring (TV) both make an item unbreakable – both can be counted towards your multiplier. You would not be able to count two different “Self Cleaning” upgrades to two different items if Self Cleaning was the exact name of the upgrade. But, if you did Self-Cleaning for the sink and Self-Cleaning Wall Coating for the Shower, then those have different names and both can be counted.

Additionally: You can make numerous upgrades in the game without using the Handiness skill. The following upgrades DO NOT count towards your multiplier:

Dynamic Surge Protection
Advanced Heat Sink
Install Plasma Display
Parcticle Generators
Wireless Display Override

Upgrade SimRay
Upgrade Satellite Dish
Upgrade Electroflux Wormhole Generator
Cloning Machine Upgrade

Landing Stabilizers
