I am going to bookmark this one .. I have never done a challenge in here <3  With luck RL will have mercy on me :) :)

It's always exciting to see new forum members try out new challenges when a new season starts. Good luck. And Happy New Year, everybody!

Take another look at the rules and make sure you are clear. This starts on Friday. The team has gotten quite a few "can I put x into my inventory" types of questions. The only thing I can figure is players are trying to increase their Lot Value by this. If this is true -- I did not think that was the case, then no, you cannot put things into inventory. The whole point of this challenge is to craft the allowed number of items to put into rooms. That's it.

Happy New Year's, everyone! I might actually try this challenge since it's so simple and doesn't require you to do anything crazy like have babies, all you have to do is spend two Sim weeks decorating a pre-made house to improve its lot value. I can do that... as long as my copy of Sims 4 doesn't lag like slow molasses.

(I spent last night, just before the fireworks - my place is surrounded by fireworks fields  ;D - getting back into Sims... and the game started lagging like no business.  :( )

Well, I have three days before the event starts, working on strats. Good luck to everyone doing this challenge. 8)

I added the last sentence to the following rule....

  • You are only allowed to buy one easel and one woodworking table from Buy Mode. Any earned career rewards may also be purchased.

Does this mean that all career rewards earned can be placed on the lot?

No. I will clarify the rule. If that was allowed then players would grab Connections asap and gobble up rewards and scatter them about the lot which, again...is not what this challenge is about. It's crafting items via 2 skills.

EDIT:

  • You are only allowed to buy one easel and one woodworking table from Buy Mode. Any earned career rewards may also be purchased, but all earned career rewards must be placed into inventory before final lot value is calculated.

If one sim ages up and the other doesn't age until the end of the day, when should we stop the clock?

As long as both are aging up on the correct day (11 days from starting your file), then it can be your choice if one ages up earlier.
