I assume buying the unfurnished restaurant is OK?

I'm having a glitch with my game.  For some strange reason some Sims are not leaving after they have finished their meals.  They have a four star above their heads but just keep hanging around the restaurant till it closes and then the rating doesn't get added!

@crstasse

I had one table like that every single time I opened the restaurant. The same thing happens in my longer challenge game, too.
EA Answers HQ lists it as a Dine Out bug but offers no work-around.  Sorry you're suffering it, too!

Now I remember why I don't own restaurants in my games. LOL


Total Perk Points = 26405
Total Star Rating = 20.5/10 = 2.05
Total = 26405 X 2.05 = 54,136

Now I can move on to a more enjoyable challenge, Collecting.

48 hours? Meaning our first restaurant switch would be 8:00 Am Tuesday or at whatever time it was when the restaurant was bought?

Ratchie can clarify, but I would go on the 8 am time frame.

I took it to mean 8 am on Tuesday as well.

Could you please clarify the perks calculation? Is it unspent perks points only? if I spend them how do I know how much I earned in the first place? Sorry if it's a noob question but I haven't owned restaurants before  :-[

Not a noob question -- it took us a while to figure it out. You need to keep track of the perk points you spend at each restaurant. Some of your perks will carry from one restaurant to the next, but some are for a 24-hour period only. Your perk points will also carry over. So, at the end, add up the perk points you spent and add the perk points you didn't spend for your total.

Well, even though I'm at the bottom again, I learned a lot from this challenge.  I thought I was doing quite well for myself with the three star rating, but evidently I fell short on the perk points.  Still I had never played a restaurant although I have had the Dine Out pack for a long time, so I thank the team for getting me to try it out.  As usual, I am in awe of the players and I will enjoy finding out their techniques.  ;D

Oops, I forgot to add the scores.

Stars 3+3+3+3+3.5 = 15.5
multiplier 15.5/10 = 1.55
Perks 7275

Score 7275 X 1.55 = 11,276

Note: If you have already finished this challenge, this rule does not apply to you:

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.

About this change related to the patch..

Before the patch on short lifespan, your sim aged up to adult on the second Wednesday at 8 pm. Per the rule change, we will be finishing at 8 am on the second Wednesday. Did no one who has already finished run the restaurant for those last twelve hours?

Possibly some people did, but others ended earlier on Wednesday, so we're leaving the rule as it stands.

As per the new rules (glad I checked first!) I ended at 8AM on the 2nd Wednesday.

Total Stars: 24.5
Total Perk Points: 38,535

Total: 2.45 x 38,535 = 94,411

I have to mention, I had 5 nearly simultaneous deaths in my 4th restaurant! (Grimmy was there for quite a while) I guess when one elder goes, the rest follow...

Also, what is it with vampires always trying to sit outside? Don't they know the sun is bad for them? Some sims just need to go back to vampire school. :P

Thanks for another great challenge, team! I really enjoy restaurants, and was unable to finish the restaurant challenge last year, so it was great to have another restaurant-oriented challenge. :)

Great score, Minnie Mouse. :)

And now for the obligatory reminder, everyone. Just imagine the soothing sound of Gordon Ramsay standing in your best restaurant's kitchen screaming at you --

This challenge ends in just two days so make sure you post your score before Monday.
