Zandramas and her little child of dark, Geran suffered through to Sunday of week 3 at 8am and achieved the following

Toddler Skills - 3, 3, 3, 3 and (for a bit of variety) 3 for 15 points x 0.01 = 0.15
Child Skills - 4, 10, 6 and 5 for 25 points x 0.02 = 0.5
Add them together and add 1 = 1.65

Household Income = 20,493

For a total of 33,813

At least the toddler animations amused and entertained me :D

16 toddler points X .01 = .16
25 child points X .02 = .50

Total multiplier = .66 (+1.00) = 1.66

167027 X 1.66 = 277264

I never even noticed freelancing before this challenge. It was fun to try something new.

My HI was 30,804 Simoleons.

The child had 5 communication points, and 5 imagination points, 5 movement points, 4 thinking points and 3 potty points, as a toddler for a total of .22, and 6 social points, 7 creative points, and 7 motor points and 9 mental points, as a child for a total of .29.
1 + .22 +.58 =1.80
30,804 X 1.80
= 55,447 total

The math is right, finally.

Great challenge, team, as always 8)!

Thanks a lot,

Actually, @coolsim9999999, you got .02 for each child point, so your multiplier was 1 + .22 + .58, for a total of 1.8 x 30,804, with a final score of 65,447. Glad you enjoyed the challenge!

Good Challenge and for once I practiced and it paid off. Still not the best score in the world but at least my sim lived to the end of the challenge this time!

Young Ben got Toddler points: Movement 2, Thinking 2, Imagination 4, Communication 4 and Potty 2
Child Points: Creativity 4, Mental 5, Motor 2, Social 3. By my maths that’s 1.42 for him.

His papa got them to 47,809 household income so I make that a final score of 67888.78.

Please someone check my maths as my dyslexic little brain can't cope sometimes!

Great challenge, many thanks for setting it.

I'm not sure which score is correct @MarianT.


Marian has the "Power of 10" on her brain and added 10k to your score. ;) Inside joke.

this looked like a really great challenge and am interested to hear people's strategies.

Unfortunately the constant crashes are back again on my game so my Sim hasn't lasted more than a few in game hours. Please can you mark me as DNF

I'd rather not DNF you due to technical stuff out of your control. Feel free to try again. Maybe do a clean reinstall before creating another file?

13 toddler points X .01 = .13
9 child points X .02 = .18

Total multiplier = 1.31

99103 X 1.31 = 129,824

Really interested in hearing how others approached this! I like many others had not done anything with the Freelancer career before. Love that these challenges push me to explore more.

Hi there! New around here but wanted to jump in on this as soon as I saw it! Hopefully I didn't mess up the math XD

15 toddler points X .01 = .15
25 child points X .02 = .5

Multiplier = 1.65

52,421 X 1.65 = 86,494.65

All done.

15 toddler skill points. 15 X .01 = .15
40 child skill points. 40 X .02 = .80

1.00 + .95 = 1.95

HI = 101,692

101,692 X 1.95 = 198,299

Lorelai Gilmore worked hard and earned § 159 946.
Her daughter Rory gained 19 toddler and 40 child skill points.

159 946 * 1.99 = 318 292.

Enjoyed playing this one! I learned things that I wish I had started from the beginning.

Household Income: 47,180

15 toddler points X .01 = .15
17 child points X .02 = .34

Total multiplier = 1.49

Final score: 47,180 x 1.49 = 70,298

I was really clueless about freelancing and it shows.  Right at the end I finally learned something that would have helped me a great deal.  Of course, I did learn a lot and played the game in a different way than I normally would so it's okay.

Toddler points: 12 x .01 = .12
Child points: 11 x .02 = .22

Multiplier: 1 + .12 + .22 = 1.34

HI: 21,664 x 1.34 = 29029

Thank you to the team for another imaginative challenge.

This is the first time I have ever done freelancing.
Samantha Freelancer and her daughter Blanca earned the following:
Toddler Skills: Communication-4;Imagination-3;Movement-2;Potty-3;Thinking-2 = 14 x 0.01 = 0.14
Child Skills: Social-6; Motor-8; Mental-7; Creativity-10 = 31 x 0.02 = 0.62

0.14 + 0.62 + 1 = 1.76
Funds: $50,113 simoleons x 1.76 = 88,198.88

Done  :)

Freelancing is not my favorite thing, but now I have tried it :)

Toddler skills = 18 = 18 * 0,01 = 0,18
Child skills = 40 = 40 * 0,02 = 0,80
Household income = $176.889

Total score = 191.889 * (1,00 + 0,18 + 0,80) = 379.940
