Well, I am heading on vacation on Thursday so I needed to wrap this up. I am happy with the number of careers capped but I guess I did not focus on the rewards enough hehe.

Careers capped = 16 = 16,000
Rewards = 28 = 1.00 + 1.4 = 2.40

Total = 16,000 X 2.40 = 38,400

OH ... MY ... GOODNESS ! ! !

I didn't even think of that! /cry  :'(

If anyone is unsure about careers (separate or not separate), please PM the team with your question.

OK, please remove me from the list of people doing this. My file has been corrupted. It's weird because I actually don't have this problem a lot, but as I have been playing for about 5 weeks, I guess it just messed up. Oh well, it's not like I was doing too well anyway.

18,000 * 3.2 = 57,600.

That was fun but WOW it took forever. I spent more time paused than any other time mode.

Also, I PMd links to the team to my save file, manually-written log file, and the spreadsheet I used to keep track of vacation time remaining. If they see any adjustments I need to make I'll update them here.

That was the hardest challenge!!

Careers: 12 (12 x 1000 = 12,000)
Rewards: 31 (31 x .05 = 1.55 + 1.00 = 2.55)

Total = 12,000 X 2.55 = 30,600

Jobs: 5 maxed = 5000
Career Rewards: 16 Received = 1+1.6 = 2.6
Total: 13 000
So close to another two rewards and another career :)

Deklitch-

There might be some math problem or typo error on your post.
16 rewards X .05 = .80. Final multiplier = 1.00 + .80 = 1.80 (not 2.60)

Can you check your records?  Thanks

woops, sorry about that.

My brain was being obviously impacted by my desire not to be turned into a pumpkin at midnight. (I had it in my head the multiplier was 0.1 not 0.05)

Jobs: 5 maxed
Career Rewards: 16 received = 1 + 0.8 = 1.8
Total: 9,000

Thanks for picking that up

Sometimes its really like luck is not on my site.
Just 2 days before this challenge had to be in, my games disk broke down and I had to use all the wonderull playtime on reinstalling, luckily the save files where on another drive.

20 jobs = 20000
37 rewards = 1.00 + 1.85 = 2.85
Total = 57000

Woo, *just* got this done! I spent so much time in pause mode, this challenge took way longer than planned! But it's still in time (right? At least it's still the 31st where I am).

Jobs/etc capped: 22= 22000
Rewards: 42=1+ 2.1=3.1
Total+ 68200

Carrer Caps: 9=9000
Rewards: 14=0.7+1=1.7

Thank you Deklitch for bringing to our attention that you made a mistake with this challenge and used coffee beans. Since you had completed the challenge and let us know of the mistake, we will be listing your score as DNF. Thank you again for your honesty.

Wow, this really embarrassing, I only made it to the 3rd week, but I'm out of time.  Oh well, at least I participated.  My Bunches only completed a total of 4 jobs for a disappointing final score of:
4 x 1,000 = 4,000
4,000 x 1.0 = (still) 4,000
I guess between the crazy busy month and some pretty bad goof-ups in the beginning, I just ran out of steam.  It's a lot of work to keep up with that many sims at once.  Anyway, looking forward to hopefully doing better next month.  Hope everyone had a great time!

I've thanked the team via PM for their decision and consideration with regards to marking the list of participants as me as having participated in this challenge, but I wanted to thank them publicly for it as well.

This reminds me of that time in Year 9 Science all those many many years ago when we were going through the responses to an exam, and we got to a question when my answer turned out to be incorrect but the teacher marked it as correct. I raised my hand and told the teacher. He said something to me like "this is one time when honesty is NOT the best policy, because with that incorrect answer you've failed the exam," but then he thanked me for being honest. I felt good for having been honest with the result, regardless.

Anyway, I am in the competitions to participate and try different things. I've previously always kept away from some careers, but now I've tried them and saw they aren't as frightening as I thought they were.

Once again thank you to the team, and I'll be sure to read the rules much more carefully in the future.

Dek

This event is now closed. Great job to Chare on another win. And grats to all participants. I wish a few more people had participated....it was a little low in my opinion, but oh well. :) Everyone is now free to share their strategy for this event.
