If my sims does several actions at  a venue I would only count one of them as "unique" and can still do the other as "unique" at another venue?

Good question. If you claim a given activity as unique with a certain friend -- i.e. eating at a restaurant, then eating at a restaurant for future venues is out of bounds because it would no longer be unique. @MarianT  and other team members, is this how you see the rule? Should we make this more clear in the rules?

Yes, if you want to count something as a unique activity, you need to do it only once. Your Sim could eat meals at several restaurants, but then you couldn't count eating a meal as unique at any of them. I'd advise against doing 3 things at one venue unless you know that you won't need to count the other two anywhere else.

What if I go to 1st venue and I count eating as unique. then in a different day at another venue my sim automatically starts eating? What then? Since we are all playing on high Autonomy there is no saying when our sims might decide they are hungry/thirsty fancy to stargaze/sing/workout etc depending on the mood they are on, the skill level and their needs.

That is why I was asking.

You are allowed to do a few practice runs of the challenge before doing your scoring run. I suggest you practice with your Sim first if you haven't had much experience with a Sim on full autonomy.

Hi Metro,

Here's my update. 

I found that Cheer Butterfly had 2 good friends. Thanks a lot for asking me to recheck her friends in her friends panel.

When Cheer Butterfly aged up to adult she had 26 friends and 2 good friends

Here’s the math:
2 friends made every day + 2 additional friends + 2 good friends made during the 12 days of a being a YA (2 friends X 12 days) + 2 additional friends =26 friends  + 2 good friends
 
26 friends
2 good friends
Total of friends and good friends, altogether = 28 friends

1300 pts = 26 friends X 50 pts each
+
200 points = 2 good friends X 100 pts each
Total points: 1500


This was another great challenge, as always :)!

That was tougher than I thought it would be. Failed after not being able to make it to the second venue of the day.

2 Good Friends = 2 x 100 = 200
3 Friends = 3 x 50 = 150

We've recently discovered that there's a glitch in friend-making which could affect this challenge. Sometimes, your Sim will have a green bar more than halfway across but still be considered only an acquaintance of the other Sim. And since your Sim needs to make a new friend at each location, that could be a problem.

If you come across this glitch in your game, check the Friends section of your relationship panel. If the Sim you're trying to befriend shows up there, even if the Sim is still only showing as an acquaintance, you may consider it to be a friend and move on to the next venue.

@Eighty8Keys, @fluffyj00. @CynKuy, @WriterJunkie, if this glitch was a problem for you, you may start over and re-submit.

Thank you! That's what happened to me. I could not get beyond acquaintance no matter what I did. I'll restart this weekend.

The acquintance glitch happened to me several times. You just have to make sure it is someone you never met before. Otherwise, the relationship will go to friends once you travel.

I wish I could say that was my problem so I could restart, but unfortunately it wasn't. I just lost track of time and didn't make it to a second venue.

I had a few friends die.  Do they still count since they are still in the relationship panel?

Let's go ahead and say yes assuming when you finish the challenge the relationship strength shown still qualifies you for points.
