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.

I am loving having some shorter challenges! My score will still be towards the bottom, but I enjoy learning new ways to play! :)
Objects upgraded - 32 x 1000 = 32000
Unique Upgrades - 19 x 3000 = 57000
Total Score = 89,000

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.

This is my first time trying out challenges like this, and I have to say that I loved every minute of it ( though Manny Handy might disagree :D ).

My sims propably had the worst two weeks of his life, but managed to do well in the competition. :D

He did a total of 38 upgrades (38,000)
and 24 unique upgrades (72,000)

Total: 110,000

On to the next challenge!

I finally joined this forum after at least a year and I just finished my first challenge. :D My sim, Mimi Reid, worked tirelessly fixing the poor, dilapidated Sunset Valley, and she did:

37 upgrades x 1000 = $37000
16 unique upgrades x 3000 = $48000

thus raising a grand total of $85000 for her company. She practically ran home and collapsed into bed (but not before throwing her wrench out the window first ;)) This challenge was so much fun and I can't wait to do the next one! :) Thanks Metro and everyone for taking the time to make these challenges, I'm sure they're all just as fun as this one. ;)

This is the second challenge I've participated on this forum - it seems fast to do and a classic idea, so I just couldn't miss it :p
My energy bar feels as low as my cyan handy-woman at the moment and both watcher & her sim girl badly want some real sleep...

Objects Upgraded: 74 x 1000 = 74000
Unique Upgrades: 31 x 3000 = 93000
Score = 167000

Thanks for the challenge!
