Sul Sul! And Thanks for All the Fish

Sul Sul! And Thanks for All the Fish

Goal
As every galactic hitchhiker knows, the Simiverse is filled with many strange and wonderful things. But there are strange and wonderful things that can be found in the waters of your town as well. The question is, how many of them can your Sim find before becoming a stay-at-home elder? In this challenge, your Sim will build a rocket ship and go exploring but also fish for treasure.

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

Specific Challenge Rules
  • Create one Human YA in CAS -- the Kleptomaniac trait is banned.
  • You must choose the Private Dwelling lot trait and the debug cheat to purchase a satellite to prevent abductions.
  • No adding to the household.
  • The astronaut career is optional. If your Sim is sent on a space mission at work, you are able to count any unique item brought back from a mission.
  • You cannot end space adventures early by canceling them.
  • Objects brought back from Sixam are not eligible for scoring.
  • This challenge ends when your Sim ages up to Elder.

Scoring

SA/CM/Fish Items - SA stands for Space Adventures and CM stands for Career Missions. Each unique item brought home from a space adventure or career mission counts 10 points, as does each unique item caught while fishing.

Mult - Each successful (i.e., no crash landing) space adventure is worth .01 towards a multiplier.

Example: Arthur Dent brought home 7 different aliens, 3 different space rocks, and an electronic upgrade part from his travels for 110 points. He also caught 15 different kinds of fish, a gnome, and a lemon for 170 points. He made 20 trips into space without crashing, for a multiplier of 1.2. 110 + 170 =280 x 1.2 = 336 for his total score.

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.

The the unique items fished - they must be fished from outer space right? Not in my sim's backyard  ::)

Unless Marian feels otherwise, there is no restriction in the rules as to where you need to fish.

Bathrobe and slippers maybe?

Do we have to keep the unique items or can we sell them?

You can definitely sell them, but in case the team has any questions concerning someone's score, it would be best to jot down what each item was.

Certain items can be both caught while fishing and acquired while on space missions (cowplant berries and upgrade parts, for instance). Do these count as unique to both fishing and space missions or do we only count them once by either method of collection?

You count them only once.

Should I post all individual fish items I found and just the number of individual fish - as well as doing the math?  --- almost done now.

You don't need to post the items -- just the number. But keep your list for when you post strategy.

Thanks a lot for letting me know, Marian :).  I will keep my list.
When Astro Fish aged up to elder, he had:

Fish Items = 48
48X10 = 480

SA = 0
crashed
CM = 0


Total score = 480 points

Allright

Ford Prefect did better than Arthur Dent in the example above :P
Ford brought home 10 aliens, 4 space rocks and 3 other items from his travels for 170 points.
He caught 33 different fish and 13 other items for 460 points.
He went on 74 Space adventures without crashing for a multiplier of 1.74.

170 + 460 = 630 points.
630 x 1.74 = 1096,2 points in total

Thanks again for the fun challenge. The hitchhicker's reference made it extra fun  ;D

L. Prosser finished with:
35 fish, 10 aliens, 4 space rocks, and 23 other unique items for a total of 72 items.
He completed 199 space missions safely for a multiplier of 2.99.

720 X 2.99= 2152.8 total points.

Ms. Little finished with 28 Fish, 10 Aliens, 4 Space Rocks and 17 other unique items for a total of 59 Items.  She completed 126 space missions without crashing for a multiplier of 2.26

590 x 2.26 = 1333

My astronaut caught 28 fish, 12 miscellaneous items, and 13 space rocks and aliens for a total of 53.  He had 89 safe landings.

53 x 10 = 530
multiplier 1.89

530 x 1.89 = 1001.

This was a really fun challenge for me.  Thank you team.

The astronaut career is optional. If your Sim is sent on a space mission at work, you are able to count any unique item brought back from a mission.

At the risk of sounding dense, I need to ask. Is the scenario described in the quote above what you mean by a "CM/Career Mission"?
