2020.8 Handiness World Championships

Challenge 8 is a balancing act between making upgrades and creating woodworking items. Not my favorite, but here we go.

Handiness World Championship

June 15 to July 5

Goal: 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.


Household Funds x Unique Upgrades

Scoring is a combination of your Household Funds multiplied by a percentage to indicate the number of unique upgrades (UU) 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 on your home lot 1% (.01) is added to the multiplier. For each unique upgrade you make off your home lot (empty lots do not count) 2% (.02) is added to the multipler.

  • Aspiration: Nerd Brain

Riley Regan is taking this challenge from her home base in Oasis Springs.

I will be honest in that I played this fast and didn’t take a lot of pictures. Basically Riley spent four days on the woodworking table until she mastered Handiness. Then she went of on rounds to do her off-lot upgrades. Then it was back home for more woodworking. She took a few days and did the home lot upgrades, and then finished off the second week making toilets and end tables.

There were two deaths while she was out. Eric Lewis and J Hungtingon III were the unlucky sims.

By the time the challenge ended, we were both glad to see the other one go.

I know her score sucks, but I am done with the challenge.

Total Household Funds: §55,437

Unique Upgrades Multiplier: 2.23

  • 49 unique upgrades at home = 0.49
  • 37 unique upgrades elsewhere = 0.74
  • base multiplier of 1.00

Final Score: §123,625

About Teresa 1079 Articles
I have been playing Sims since August 2005; a member, then a moderator, and now an admin of Boolprop.net since October 2006. My sister is the one that hooked me on Sims in the beginning. She had all of the original Sims games and one week while I was on vacation I took her games and started playing. That was the beginning of my obsession. I played Sims 1 for about a month and then decided to buy Sims 2. When Sims 3 was released I made the move and have never looked back. Now I am all in on Sims 4 and still loving it.
