The Dynamic Skilling Duo
« on: March 11, 2019, 07:48:24 AM »
The Dynamic Skilling Duo



Goal
Since Vampires have such amazing skilling prowess, the team almost always bans them in challenges to level the playing field. For this event, Vampires are the skilling stars of the show and to add an interesting element you'll also create a Human or Alien to boost a score multiplier.




General Challenge Rules

Specific Challenge Rules
  • The Vampires game pack is required.
  • Create 1 Young Adult Vampire and one Young Adult Human or Alien Sim.
  • Your Human/Alien Sim cannot be converted to a vampire.
  • No household additions after leaving CAS, but CAS pets are allowed.
  • You are allowed to use the Buydebug cheat for the sole purpose of purchasing a satellite to prevent abductions.
  • This challenge concludes at Week 3, Day 1, 8 AM.




Scoring
For Vampire Skills give yourself 1 point for every maxed skill by your Vampire.

Mult. Everyone starts with a multiplier of 1.00. For every skill your Human or Alien maxes, add 5% (.05) to the multiplier. Note: Your household can work on the same skills, but the same skill you count for your Vampire Skills score cannot also count for the Mult. If the same skill is capped by both Vampire and Human/Alien, you would need to choose whether to take the 1 point vs adding to the multiplier.

Multiply Vampire Skills and Mult. together to get your Total.

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 may 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, MarianT, sdhoey, and LenaLJ) 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 is expected to do so in detail.

Well, shucks. I don't have the vampire pack, so won't be able to participate in this challenge. Good luck to everyone on this one. Looking forward to the next challenge.

Do skills with only 5 levels count, or do they all have to be 10 level skills?

Any capped skill counts towards the Vampire Skills or the Mult.

*Rises from coffin* Did I hear you say you're letting us play with Vampires in this challenge @Metropolis Man?! You know that's my jam!  :D

Mult. Everyone starts with a multiplier of 1.00. For every skill your Human or Alien maxes, add 5% (.05) to the multiplier.

Because these multipliers always do my head in and my brain just can't do maths, let me see if I understand this correctly now, adding a 5% to the multiplier would bring the total to 1.5 % adding another 5% would bring it up to 2.00 and so forth correct?

Also when you say Vampire Skills, I assume you are referring to actual skills maxed by our Vampire, such as logic, charisma etc and not the Vampire Powers on the the Vampire Skill Tree? I'm pretty sure you mean the former but I just want this clarified to avoid future confusion.

Only one Vampire?  :(  Well there goes my plan of creating a Vampire army to take over this challenge and the world (Joke)

You can count on me joining this challenge Metro, fangs for letting me playing with Vampires again!  ;D *Poofs into a bat and flies off into the night*

No. Let's say at the end of the challenge your Human/Alien caps 6 different skills. You add .05 for each maxed skill. So, .05 X 6 = .30. You start with a multiplier of 1.00. 1.00 + .30 = 1.30 for your final multiplier.

I just took a bite out of your previous thinking!

Thanks for clearing up the whole multiplier scoring system for me @Metropolis Man, maths does weird things to my brain when I'm tired, lol.

I have a question, seeing as parenting is a skill are our Sims allowed to have kids for that reason? If so then would toddler and child skills count or this challenge purely for adult skills?

It's great that you are allowing pets and Vampires, we almost never get to play with either of them in challenges so I can't wait able to sink my teeth into this!  ;D

No kids allowed. From the rules...

  • No household additions after leaving CAS, but CAS pets are allowed.

My Vampire maxed 13 skills, and her helper maxed 7 skills. so...

13x1.35+= 17.55

Hope my maths are correct. Good Luck to everyone participating.

So parenting is pretty much useless even though it is a skill. Unless you can use parenting on kids outside of the household, you'll have to max the skill with skill books. :-\

I'm just wondering how many CAS pets we are allowed, is there a limit? I'm asking this as a general question for all challenges in which we are allowed pets and seeing as this is one of them, I thought it would be good to ask here.

Oh and while I'm here ...

We can start in any season right? I haven't really seen any rulings on seasons and weather so I figured we could just choose our own.

Aside from the obvious household limit that pets add to, no restrictions.

Correct. Your choice.

My vampire maxed 7 skills and my human maxed 5 skills.

So 7 times the multiplier of 1 plus 5 times .05 is equal to

7 x 1.25 = 8.75

I maxed some skills that I don't normally use so it was a learning experience.  Thank you to the team for coming up with such imaginative challenges.

My vampire maxed 18 skills; My non-Vampire maxed 6 skills. 

18 * (1+(6*.05)) = 18 * 1.3 = 23.4

My vampire maxed 8 skills, and my human maxed 4 skills.

8 times the multiplier of 1
+ 4 X .05
So:
8 x 1.20 = 9.60

This was a fun challenge team, as always 8)!

My vampire (Batman) maxed 22 skills.  His human sidekick (Robin) maxed 4 skills.

22 x 1.2 = 26.4

I have no clue how y'all do it.  My vampire got 4 skills, my human got 1.  So that's 4*1.05 = 4.2 points.

Oh well, someone's got to come in last  ;)

Wow, @BallerinaHippo , that's a pretty impressive score!  :D  Everyone is posting their scores and I'm nowhere near finished (I got off to a late start).

@Metropolis Man Shouldn't BallerinaHippo be at the top of the scoreboard and not second? (No offense @GlazeyLady) I mean, she does seem to have the highest score thus far.  :-\

Thank you both, @Rainbow Dash and @Metropolis Man

I'm sure my score will be beaten before the challenge is over as there's still plenty of time left.  Next week is a busy one for me so I had to get this done early.  :)

I stayed up late to finish this as I wanted to get it done.

My Vampire, the Lord of Darkness himself, maxed 23 skills and his lovely human wife maxed 11 skills.  :)

Ah darn, now I gotta do maths, lemme see here ...

1.55 x 23 = 35.65

Well ... that's my calculator says anyway and I'm too tired for all this maths nonsense, I hope this is right.  :-\

It's so late here I feel like the walking dead lol, time for me to sleep like the dead now. *Crawls into coffin and assumes the corpse position*
