Donna Tello completed 24 unique sculptures and made $36,161. 36,161x(24x.05+1)=79,554. She finished a little early so I let her take out the garbage. She really wanted to.

Tirajm, I show your total to be 101,156. Could you check it and make sure your figures are right? Thank you in advance :)

Whew. Soooo much luck involved in this challenge. Made test runs tricky.

Chiselle Block made 35 unique items for 62,603.

35 *.05 = 1.75 + 1 = 2.75

62,603 * 2.75 = 172,158.25

I guess that would round down to 172,158.

I made 23 unique items and sold a total of $65042

If my math is right that takes me to $139840 total.

Scuplta McSculperton carved/torched/sawed $75. 380 into her empty pockets. She sculpted 33 unique items.

33 x .05 = 1.65 + 1.00 = 2.65

75.380 x 2.65 = 199.757 Final Score

I rarely get meteor strikes in my games and it chose this challenge to throw one at me, landed smack bang on my sculpting station and wasted so much time because of the fires, still nobody died thankfully.

33 unique sculptures x 0.05 = 1.65 + 1 = 2.65

money made 49195 x 2.65 = 130366 final score

Oh I just realised I made a mistake didn't I, without thinking I bought a replacement sculpting station, the meteor happened end of week one and I replaced it and carried on without thinking of the only buy one scultping station rule, have I failed myself?

23 unique sculptures and 95,620 dollars made!

23 x 0.5 x 95620=109963

Very proud of my effort on this one!

Edit: incorrect multiplier! I redid my score, hope I'm understanding correctly this time...

Lisa46 please recheck your score. I come up with something different than what you have said. Did you make 95,620 selling your sculptures?

Turoskel, I will ask the team what they think on this and get back to you.

Everyone, please ask the team in a PM, if something happens in your file and you are unsure about it.

Yes, I did. I got really lucky with the masterpieces, yay!

So, 23 unique sculptures and $95620 made. The multiplier is 0.05, correct?

Ok, I just got 109963 again... Do I have an incorrect multiplier? The example said 40 unique sculptures would be a multiplier of 2, so that is 0.05...

23 X .05 = 1.15. But, you're starting with 1.00. So, your multiplier is 2.15

I don't have anything to do with the rules of the challenge, but I would imagine that'd be okay, since you still only had one sculpting station at at time.

Okay, the "you can only buy one sculpting station" rule has been modified to be more in line with the thinking we had set up for the painting challenge:

  • You can only have ONE sculpting station on your lot.


So, Turoskel your score stands as is. However, when unexpected disasters strike we need to remind everyone to try and not proceed without first consulting the team just so we have a heads up. Thanks.

Thank you Metro, sorry for not letting you know at the time but I honestly didn't think about that when it happened, in the unlikely event it ever happens again in future challenges I'll be sure to tell the team.

Wow, this is one challenge where luck is needed. I hope to learn a few tricks from the realy high scoring participants, as I have the feeling I missed a crucial part. But I am happy with my effort (altough I did better in one of my practice runs)

Money Made: 73,910
Objects multiplier: 1.6 + 1 = 2.6 (32 different sculptures -> 32 x 0.05 = 1.6)
Total: 73910 x 2.6 = 192,166

Ivana Sculpt created a total of 23 unique sculptures and earned $25,543.
23 x .05 = 1.15
1.15 + 1 = 2.15
25,543 x 2.15 = 54,917.45
Looks like I'll be in the bottom yet again.  Oh well, I love sculptor Sims!  Many thanks to the organizers and moderators for another fun challenge.  And congrats to the winners!  Looking forward to the 007 challenge!  What a great idea!
