23 Upgrades for ’23

I am going to be participating in the tournament over at Carl’s Sims Forum this year and will be posting my play through here after each challenge ends. For the first challenge of 2023, the goal was a simple race against time – complete 23 unique upgrades and 23 unique neighborhoods.

23 Upgrades for ’23

Challenge runs January 2-8, 2023

The sim for this challenge is Astrid Hills and she is a vampire. That has good points and bad points, but it worked out for her. Unfortunately, my screen print program didn’t capture any of the pictures because I was in full screen mode rather than windowed mode. I only have the initial picture of Astrid.

Astrid is a Cheerful, Genius, Loner with the Renaissance Sim aspiration for the Quick Learner trait. She never worked on the aspiration, no time. She was able to complete her 23 upgrades at Tuesday morning, 3:50am. This gave her a final time of 2,630 minutes.

Since I don’t have any pictures to share, I decided to list the upgrades and locations of each. Hopefully the next challenge I will be able to get more than one picture.

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.
