Restaurant Simpossible

Goal
You have just ten Sim days to change the fortunes of five failing restaurants. Can you do it or is it just Simpossible!

General Challenge Rules
The General Challenge Rules always apply. If applicable, exceptions will be noted below.

Specific Challenge Rules
  • Create one young adult Sim. Alien or human, vampires are not allowed.
  • No moving anyone in.
  • You must choose the Private Dwelling lot trait and the debug cheat to purchase a satellite to prevent abductions.
  • You must place Hogans Burger Bar, Sunnyside Up Diner, L'attente Bistro, Villa Bovine and Chez llama.
  • Use the motherlode cheat two times to give your Sim 100,000 Simoleans. You may not use the cheat again.
  • Purchase Hogans Diner. You have 48 hours to make your restaurant a success. Any changes you make must be internal - no structural changes to the building. Changing internal walls is fine, but not outside walls.
  • After 48 hours note your star rating and perk points and then sell your restaurant.
  • Use the profits to purchase another restaurant and begin the process again.
  • Any hired staff can be re hired if they are available when you move to subsequent restaurants.
  • The game ends when your Sim ages to adult or if you go broke and are unable to purchase a new restaurant.
  • You may use manage world's to bulldoze a previously owned restaurant this is the only permitted use of manage worlds. You may not use manage household to delete any Sims.
  • The May 25th patch added 2 days to the YA lifespan on short. Instead of ending when your Sim becomes an adult, you need to end after 48 hours at your 5th restaurant.

Scoring
Perk Points. Purchased Perks, as well as any unspent Perk Points, carry over from restaurant to restaurant, so when you are done add together all spent and unspent points for your total.

Star Rating/10. Add up the total star ratings of all five restaurants and then divide that number by 10.

Total. Just multiply your Perk Points by your Star Rating/10 for your final score.

Example: Hogans Burger Bar acquires 3500 Perk Points and a 2-star rating; Sunnyside Up Diner - 2700 Perk Points and a 3.5 Star rating; L'attente Bistro - 3000 Perk Points and a 4-star rating; Villa Bovine - 2250 Perk Points and a 3.5 star rating; Chez Llama - 4000 Perk Points and a 5-star rating.

Total Perk Points = 15450
Total Star Rating = 18/10 = 1.8
Total = 15450 X 1.8 = 27810


Ch-Ch-Changes
The team does not want to edit and make changes to the ruleset once this event goes live, but we may have to. If an exploit is brought to our attention or we discover something else we reserve the right to ask affected players to redo their effort.

Have Questions?
Please think hard before you ask in the challenge thread because it may be strategy. What you may consider an innocent question could cause another player to go — “oh, I did not think of doing that.” It’s always safer to PM everyone on the team (Metro, ratchie, LenaLJ, Trip, and MarianT) for clarifications. Thanks.

And the Winner is...
After this event has closed everyone is encouraged to discuss how they approached the event, but the winner especially is expected to do so in detail.

I'm just doing a test run on this and I can't figure out how to keep my already hired staff to follow me to the next restaurant.

You can rehire them when you move to the next restaurant if they are available. I will edit and reword that rule.

They were not up for re-hire as they were still working at the last restaurant, no loss there as they were not very good, but staff at current restaurant are and I would like to keep them when I sell up.  If I fire them, then it goes way into the dislike bar!  Just not sure if there is a way around this.  Thanks for the speedy reply!

You could try bulldozing your previous restaurant once you sell it. No restaurant no job.

I asked about rehiring and one other question about this challenge in a PM yesterday.
I'm assuming the answer to my second restaurant-related question is a yes. *dying to start a practice file

Okay guys can I ask that we stop talking about re hiring as this could be considered strategy.

I'm wondering if selecting the Private Dwelling lot trait will also prevent vampire break-ins?
I certainly hope so since learning to craft garlic objects takes time away from every tournament challenge.

Does anyone know?

Unspent perk points carry over from one restaurant to the next. Shouldn't we only include unspent perk points in our score for the final restaurant owned to avoid double counting?

I have a question about the rule below:
Quote
Purchase Hogans Diner. You have 48 hours to make your restaurant a success. Any changes you make must be internal - no structural changes to the building.

Does "no structural changes" mean that walls may not be added or removed?

ETA: Sorry for the wrong-direction bracket...

Correct.

@ratchie - please address this since I am not a restaurant pro:

You are right. I will edit the rules thank you.

You may not alter the shell of the building. You can remove or add walls inside your restaurant.

@Metropolis Man and @ratchie

My apologies to you both.
I had a bracket facing the wrong way in my post which causes confusion about where my post ended and Metropolis Man's response began.
So, it's my bad.  So sorry!

Can someone pls include an image of the Sunnyside Up Diner? My game is running on a Swedish translation and that resturant is not included. Tried search for it in the gallery but could not find it.
