The team decided to add the following restriction given there will likely be additional upgrades to this pack and not everyone will jump in and buy it right away...

  • The Sims 4 Laundry Day Stuff Pack is banned.

Thanks for clarifying that, I was wondering about that too. After watching the Laundry Day livestream I'm pretty sure you're right and there are new unique upgrades, so that's good to know. :)

This event goes live on Monday, so look the rules over one more time and ask any remaining questions you may have. Good luck.

The following rule needed some clarification, so "only made by your Sim" was added...

  • All income is restricted to selling Woodworking items only made by your Sim via inventory - no retail stores allowed.

Han(nah) Dyman made $290,980 and had a total of 25 Unique upgrades.  I believe that makes her multiplier 1.5 if my math is right.

Total= 436,470

edited to add: My Sim's name is Mary Sous. I saw other people were listing their names and I didn't know if you needed it.

Mike Holmes is all done. This was a blast. I love money-making events...they have always been my favorites.

Household funds = 366,316
Unique Upgrades = 44 = 44 X .02 = .88

Total = 366,316 X 1.88 = 688,674

Whoa @Metropolis Man that's amazing!  :o

Alright, I'm going to give this a shot, I didn't get to practice as much as I'd hoped and handiness is not my thing but I'm determined to really try to get into the World Ranking this year. :) Hopefully the research I did for this and the little practice I did get in will pay off. Stop, hammer time!

Tim Taylor has finished is tool time with the following:

Household Funds: 247,896
Unique Upgrades: 45 x .02 = .90
Total: 247,896 x 1.90 = 471,002

As with @Metropolis Man, money-making events are my favorite, second to anything babies and toddlers.

My sim finished with §51,171 and 31 unique upgrades.

51,171 x 1.62 = 82,897.02

I was kinda annoyed with the end of this one, I feel like my sim aged before he should have. I was just getting prepared for him to pull an all-nighter before his birthday at 8am Saturday morning, but he aged 8pm Friday night instead so I'm not sure what happened with that, or whether that was supposed to happen or not (I've never played short life span before, maybe they age at different times?). Anyway... the challenge was still fun despite that, just threw me off guard is all :P

Hey, MC Hammer is not ancient! U Can't Touch This is only, like, 27 years old, oops.

When my sim aged up to an adult, he had $526,840 and 70 unique upgrades.
$526,840 x 2.40 = $1,264,416

@simemie   The same thing you experienced happened to me. I got an "Almost birthday" message on Thursday at 8am and thought, "Okay, I have until Saturday 8am."
                  But my sim aged up around 8pm on Friday, just like your sim. I guess it's a short lifespan thing. :D

My sim, Chuck Timmerman, completed 37 unique upgrades for a multiplier of 1.74 and earned $48, 255.  This gave me a total of $83, 9964.  Judging by some of the other totals I need to get much better with my time management.  I can't wait to hear everyone's strategies.

@Metropolis Man, my Sim's name for this challenge is James Taylor. Are you old enough to get that reference?
