I know I didn't participate last year, and I might have the year before- hard to remember. but I always kept an eye on these challenges if I could do them on my own later. glad that I was able to participate in this one and hopefully can finish more


Objects Upgraded: 28 x 1,000 = 28,000
Unique Upgrades Completed: 23 x 3,000= 69,000
Total: 28,000 + 69,000 = 97,000

Fanny Fixit got off to a quick start but lagged a bit in the middle as I tried to figure out what to send her after next, so my score's not as good as it could be. :(

Objects Upgraded: 38 x 1,000 = 38,000
Unique Upgrades: 24 x 3,000 = 72,000

Total: 110,000


Not bad for my first challenge ever! I think I need to do a practice round next time, because there were so many things I regretted about this one. :-\

Handy Challenge is putting down her tools and changing towns to Isla Pardiso for a long resort stay.

But she managed to upgrade 39 items, with 25 unique upgrades.

so 39,000 for the total number
     75,000 for the upgrade multiplier

for an end total of 114,000!

I have a comment or two about a few situations I ran into while playing, but I'll save em for after the closing of the challenge.  Had a lot of fun, though I'm sure Handy never wants to see a sink again!

Having flushed out as many kinds of upgrades as he could think of, a moderately flushed with success Ethan East took a break from making screws and bolts flush and retired home to use a flush before retiring to bed.

Objects Upgraded: 59
Unique Upgrades Completed: 31 30

Score = (59 * 1,000) + (3130 * 3,000)
= 59,000 + 93,00090000 = 152,000 149,000

Had a couple of small mistakes, but overall I think the challenge went quite well. Not sure if there's some optimization trick that I didn't think of though.

Edited to add: Thanks Metro and the team for the short challenge, this was relatively light and fun! :) 2 week challenges are relatively lighter in pace :)

Edit: PM'd Metro with details with regard to miscount of score. Might be considered strategy, so I'll publicly state why after the challenge ends.

Wrench Henchman decided to take his juice break early and call it quits in the middle of his final upgrade, leaving him with:

32 upgrades total (32,000)
15 of which were unique (45,000)

He clocks out with a total of 77,000.

This was my first challenge and it was a lot of fun.  ;D

 :'( Knocked off my perch. Can't say I didn't see it coming though. I'll be keen to find out how exactly - I thought I had it as near as possible to the highest.

Ummm ... I am in shock here. A sims challenge in which my sims 3 game didn't crash after the first three days. I am even more shocked by my score.

Montgomery Scott kinnae change the laws of physics, Captain but he did manage to upgrade 44 objects, and completed 27 unique upgrades.

His score is 44*1000 + 27*3000 = 125000, I think, I checked and rechecked my maths, and that seems correct.

My first attempt at a challenge.  Good way for a noob like me to learn different aspects of the game. 
Based on the base game & 3 expansions I got:

Objects upgraded - 25 x 1000 = 25000
Unique upgrades - 21 x 3000 = 63000
Total = 88,000

Looking forward to learning some strategy from more experienced players.

Thanks for the challenge and the super website.

@grbell — welcome to the forum. Part of your post needed to be deleted because it hinted at a certain type of upgrade.
