Good luck finding it!

A couple rules modifications...

  • You must choose the Private Dwelling lot trait to prevent abductions. To be extra safe you may use the debug cheat to purchase a satellite.

***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.

Total Perk Points

Total Star Rating = 16/10 = 1.6
Total = 14,830 X 1.6 = 23,728

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?
In my practice run, my purchased perks are carrying over as well (not just the unspent points). Is that expected, or a bug?

@Minnie Mouse

That is how it's supposed to work, I believe. They follow your "active sim."

Let me rewrite the Perks section in scoring -- someone say if it better reflects what players are experiencing with points.

This was really fun!
I spent so much time planning the practice run that I decided not to do a practice run, despite several bumps in the road.

Total Perk Points = 20,930
Total Star Rating = 22.5/10 = 2.25
Total = 20,930 X 2.25 = 47,092.5

I'm not sure what to do with the fraction in the Total Star Rating.
Challenge Team, please revise my score as you see fit.

P.S. The explanation for tallying perk points is easier to understand now.
P.P.S. Even with the Private Dwelling lot trait, there was a vampire break-in which prevented everyone from leaving the restaurant until almost 5 a.m.

oshizu, you did fine with your score. Historically, we don't add decimals to scores, so I'll just drop the .5

Yes, it's written more clearly now. I thought I was supposed to be counting spent points at each individual restaurant, then adding the unspent points from the last restaurant - hence my confusion. Thank you :)

I also had a vampire break-in with the trait. Vlad showed up and poofed his way through my restaurant cleaning up dishes. Thanks, but no thanks? :-\

So I guess the trait doesn't work at all on commercial lots. Though it definitely works on private lots - Vlad also attempted to break into my house last challenge, but was unable to come through the front door (he then stomped off angrily into the sunrise).

@coolsim9999999   I had a bit of bad luck, lol, but still enjoyed it.
I only wish I could finish every challenge like you do! I plan, I start, but have not been finishing.  :(

Thanks @oshizu
You had a great game as well!  I started getting some weird waiter behavior toward the end, so I was glad this ended when it did!
