Hey, another question (sorry!) but do we only count career levels achieved while we're playing? So if a sim we move in already comes with a job, do we only count the levels we achieved or do we count the level they're at, even if they didn't necessarily earn them while we played them? (I'm sure there's a better way to word that but I can't think of one right now so sorry if that just sounded really confusing, hopefully it makes sense).

As the Scoring sections states, your score is how far a Sim gets in their career. Does not matter if a Sim comes into your house already in a career.

Okay, thanks

Hello, I have some questions too :

Can we move in and age up a child/teen?

Is the number of career per sim unlimited, as long no one else did that carreer?

Do we have to max one carreer before switching?

Thank you.

Does not matter who comes in....just remember no one can move out and you're held to the 8 Sim cap.

Yes.

No.

The following rule has been clarified a bit...

  • Sims should be moved in with the "Ask to move in" social.


It's now...

  • Sims must be moved in with the "Ask to move in" social. No adoptions.

Are veterinarian and retail considered careers?

No. Veterinarian is a skill, and retail doesn't have levels. The rabbit-hole careers, the careers that came with Get to Work and the ones that came with City Living are all eligible. Teen jobs don't count either, because you have to get to level 5 before you can get a score.

That's what I thought but I was confused because there are 31 career spaces in the spreadsheet but I only count 29 careers. Are there just extra spaces in the spreadsheet or am I missing something?

Edited: Ops my fault there are only 29 in the spreadsheet. I was looking at the number so I didn't realize it was counting the first 2 spaces. Ops!

Just wanted to say, in using Lena's spreadsheet, the calculators on the right need to be coded to include ALL the values in the middle set of columns - for example, if Sim 2 in the first set of columns was actually the first one you listed in the second set of columns(let's say they hit the level you were aiming for first, so you listed them first or something), their score would appear as 0 in the third set of columns because the coding isn't looking for Sim 2's name in ALL the data, only from row 4 down.

It's really only an issue if you listed them in a different order in the second set of columns than in the first set, but that might happen depending on how people track I guess.  So instead of coding of
For J3: "=SUMIF(G3:G31;B3;F3:F31)"
For J4: "=SUMIF(G4:G32;B4;F4:F32)"
etc

It should be:
For J3: "=SUMIF(G3:G31;B3;F3:F31)"
For J4: "=SUMIF(G3:G31;B4;F3:F31)"

Does that make sense?  I feel like I babbled.  Sorry!  I only found this incidentally while I was plotting and planning some stuff out. :P

Yep. Been there, done that and would have several t-shirts if they were the prize. I have also had to restart a dynasty file because I was just cruising along and then realized I was playing on short lifespan.

Thanks for catching this @MSUCalli had to read it a few times but then I surely could see what you meant and also the mistake I had made. It is now corrected.

Forgot about the satellite rule...

This was a tough one.

Sim 1: Level 9 & 5 : 6+1= 7
Sim 2: Level 8 & 8 : 4+4= 8
Sim 3: Level 9 & 8 : 6+4=10
Sim 4: Level 9       : 6    = 6
Sim 5: Level 10 & 6: 8+2=10
Sim 6: Level 8 & 9  : 4+6=10
Sim 7: Level 10 & 5: 8+1=  9
Sim 8: Level 9 & 7  : 6+3 = 9

Total = 69

First on the leaderboard for once.

Darn, and I thought I was going to get to post first and pretend to be in first place for a little bit :P I'm actually kinda surprised not many scores have been posted yet.

Sim 1: level 8 ( 4 )
Sim 2: level 10 and 6 ( 10 )
Sim 3: level 10 ( 8 )
Sim 4: level 10 ( 8 )
Sim 5: level 10 ( 8 )
Sim 6: level 10 ( 8 )
Sim 7: level 8 ( 4 )
Sim 8: level 9 ( 6 )
Total: 56

I think this has been my favourite challenge so far :)

Would pets be considered one of your 7 household members?  Or could they be adopted out?

Pets do occupy a household spot, and the rules state that no one can move out of the house.
