I apologize if this is redundant but looking through the other posts I wasn't able to rid my confusion on the following from the rules:

Then a few lines down:

So does this mean that if you went to France in one town you can go to France again to complete the requirements but you can't go to another destination? But, if the previous is correct then could you go to multiple locations if you finish the requirements of the first vacation in one trip? Or, one vacation, one town, means one destination spot with multiple attempts if needed to finish the requirements, which is the reason for the second vacation entry on the spreadsheet per town?

IronicBeauty, it is one vacation destination per town, so yes if you choose France for vacation destination for town 1, then you can go twice to France from town 1 if you need that in order to complete the requirement.

But you would not be allowed to go to china and Egypt from town 1 also, only one vacation destination.

Total = 83087

Is it 1:53pm or 1:35pm ?

If its 1:53pm -- then your vacation time is 6605  (total will be 83105)
If its 1:35pm -- then your vacation time is 6587  (total will be 83087)

Thank you very much for clearing that up!

So, after having a lot of personal misery, I'm joining the challenges 6 months late now that I finally have time and enthusiasm to play the game again! :D

World Adventures is my favourite expansion, so I'm looking forward to this one.

So sad to hear that this is the final tournament season ever! ;-;

Lisa, I do not know enough about spreadsheets to know how Lena set it up, but 12:00am may technically be Day 4. So, I wonder if 11:59 PM would be more accurate? Lena, do you want to comment?

Due to something we just found out we have amended the following:

  • Island Paradise players cannot own a resort and also cannot stay overnight in a resort.

This challenge started out fun but got tedious at the end. Only having the one Sim and basically watching them sleep, eat and skill on 4x with no other Sims to deal with at the same time kind of got boring. But nonetheless I finished! My finish time is more than I wanted but being the average player I am, I'm just glad I finished without doing something random to get money.

Also, I did not mark the week and day of towns 1 and 2 as I thought I read that wasn't necessary, only until the final town would you need the week. My times:

Week, Day and Time of challenge completion:
Town 1: 12:38am
Town 2: 6:13pm
Town 3: Week 10, Day 5 at 4:37pm = 97,168

Trip 1: China, two trips.
1st trip took all 3 days: Day 3 @ 11:59pm; 2nd trip: Day 3 @ 5:47pm

Trip 2: France, 2 trips.
1st trip - Day 3 @ 11:49pm; 2nd trip - Day 1 @ 11:05pm

Trip 3: Egypt, 1 trip.
Day 5 @ 4:48pm

Total vacation time: 16,408

Total time used in minutes: 113,576

Looking forward to the next challenge :)

That's correct but we still need you to post the information for towns 1 and 2 that is needed in the spreadsheet.

Ok, I modified my original post with the first two towns end times. Thanks!

Thank you, rokrchik

---------

EDIT: Double check the spreadsheet. I came up with 97168 + 18328 = 115496

Let me know if that's wrong. I'll enter those numbers in the leaderboard for now.

Rereading the rules of the spreadsheet, I guess the score you have is with a 2nd trip to Eygpt listed as Day 1 @ 8am. Not sure why that is needed if one never made a 2nd trip since it seems to alter the finish time, but it is what it is :)

I do not know either, but I do not ask questions when it comes to math because 99.9% of the world population is better at math than I am.

The quick answer would be if you let it stand day 1 8 am it will count as 0 minutes. If it is empty it goes into minus and therefore would give you a smaller total.

 Tried to not make that happen, but somehow google spreadsheet would only read that code 50% of the time.

Ahh, ok. That does actually make sense to me. Thanks for explaining it :)
