Sett Maker

Delivering six plain setts (hand-sized, roughly rectangular block) to Stephen Jobs gave me 20480 XP and A$10.20. It would be interesting to see whether the reward changes if the sett quality is higher. --Gunde 15:33, 2 January 2014 (UTC)

Eight setts (2 symmetrical, 3 well formed, 3 plain) also gave 20480 XP and A$10.20, so sett quality doesn't seem to make any difference to the reward. Dvalinn 17:01, 4 January 2014 (UTC)
Interesting, I only ever seem to get the task of making six setts. Delivered six well-formed ones, same XP and monetary reward. --Gunde 22:24, 7 January 2014 (UTC)

Results by Laos, 26 October 2018:

cr.ar.sc bonus # success # failure TM?
132 1 3 yes (success)

139 6 4 yes (success)
142 0 3

Street Fixer

The reward appears to scale based on the percent of good (not shoddy, sketchy, or faulty) pavers placed. That is, you only get rewarded for "good" pavers and get nothing for "bad" pavers. Description of bad (shoddy vs sketchy vs faulty) does not appear to matter.

More research needed on whether the pattern affects difficulty.
