That was a very interesting challenge. I've never done the law enforcement career and it was actually a lot of fun getting my sim to go and question people, though I wasted a lot of time in the begging trying to become good friends before actually questioning them. Can't wait for the next challenge!

World 3: Week 5, Day 6, 1:06 PM

Runs the numbers again. I came up with 49395 + 7804 = 57199. You have to leave the 2nd line of each vacation as it is. Don't change it.

Just a friendly reminder:

If you get the negative moodlet from being caught doing something humiliating like peeing on yourself or passing out in public or receiving a Public False Accusation, you can not go to the town hall to Sue for Slander. If the suing succeeds, you get rewarded money and this is not an acceptable way of making money. Unfortunately, you have to wait for the negative buff to go away on its own, which is 3 days.

Blackrosea, I believe I may have sued for slander. I didn't get money because I didn't win, but does that make me done?

Let me ask the team, and I will get back to you Lisa46.

A very good reminder, Blackrosea. Folks, seriously, you have to be careful in this event or you'll DNF. It could have easily happened to Lisa46 if she had won in court. Things you do not think twice about like selling skill certificates will DNF you. Look at the list again in the allowed ways to make money and keep that close at hand and always visible.

Since we have to pack our furniture when we move can we use that same furniture in the next town or are we not allowed to use items out of family inventory. Like in town 2 can I just reuse the furniture that I packed from town 1 in my house. I know the rules say we can't use it for upgrading properties but can we use it for our house.

You can do such a thing? Wow, I never saw the Sue for Slander option before but I have used it several times in my LifeStates Dynasty now :)

Arrgh, DNF in my actual file. I did great in my practice. I sold something I bought to get lifetime happiness points like I always do and then realized what I did about 10 minutes later.

Hi Karen,

Can you recheck your numbers please? I show the following numbers:

Town Time = 58,133
Vacation Time = 7,588
Total = 65,721

I will use these new numbers on the leader board, unless you find something different.

My numbers did change when I put them into the spreadsheet again, so I must've made an error the first time!

Thank you!

I did. The vacation time checked out, but I came up with a slightly higher Town Time. If you go look at the spreadsheet now my figures would still be there.

88963 + 16090 = 105053

My mistake, Blackrosea, town time 3 should by week 7, day 3, 6:35 am not pm.   Sorry!   :-[  Also, your vacation time is right, I don't know why I wrote down 5280 - probably shouldn't post in the middle of the night!

Sadly haven't managed to finish this challenge, and too busy today to complete it. Can I be a DNF if I'm unfinished due to lack of time, rather than making a mistake?
Well done everybody who did finish, and thanks Blackrosea - you have such a great imagination!
