Another dumb question. The rules state that the money they have left after should be spent on necessities and that they will be living in the great outdoors until they have enough to afford a roof over their heads. Since there is no restriction on lot size, what keeps them from using the leftover cash they have on a roof? Unless it's supposed to be akin to a legacy start on the largest lot possible. And be left with the barest minimum amount of cash. Or is it that money that was left over can't be spend on building materials until x time(example the first child is born.)

Sorry for all the dumb questions. I just like to be as above board as possible because I know I'm gonna do something stupid later. :dunce:


I will adjust the rules of the challenge, I probably didn't explain it properly .... it is meant to be akin to a legacy start ... they buy the largest lot so they are left virtually broke

I'm kinda considering the baby boom challenge myself, to really try out the features of Ambitions, when I can install it. I take it the whole challenge has to be completed before the 24th, right?

My sim in Sims 4 bought the only lot available to her and still had $17,000 left over.

The goal is to complete the challenge - it's like the Monster Mash, in that we've released it to celebrate the event but it doesn't need to be done before the event :) But if you finish before the 24th, you might come out better than someone who finishes it after :hmm:

Might have to do the Sims 4 legacy start rules, where you buy the Knight of the Octagon Table decoration until you can't any more :)

That's exactly what I did, except I bought cat stuff first since she adopted Mayor Whiskers before the money question was asked.

Okay so I may try the baby boom challenge as well. I looked and didn't see anything where it specifically says about gender-influencing in TS3. Are apples and/or watermelon allowed?

Another question/suggestion on the Baby Boom challenge: could we perhaps expand the alphabet to include all the letters of Boolprop? I feel like we might get way too many duplicate names if everyone is using only B.

As you can not control the sex of each baby being born, the end of this challenge might get a little frustrating!! Say for instance you just need 1 more boy and a girl arrives.

Nope, no gender influencing is allowed. No watermelons or apples in Sims 3 and no carrots or strawberries for Sims 4.

When is the deadline for completing events for the medal? I've been extremely busy with work and life this past week, so I've only been able to pass the parcel so far. I can probably get to some other things later this week, but I don't want to miss the medal! :thup:

Also wanting to know if this is okay. Another reason I'm putting off this challenge (other than having so much to do) is I like variation with names and if I have 24+ kids all beginning with B I'll not enjoy it

Speaking as someone with 5 kids named with a B, I'm getting them all confused. Some variety would be nice.

It would be great if they didn't all have to be B names. There's 24 letters that show up in the address bar of the home page ( H T T P S B O O L P R O P N E T I N D E X P H P ), maybe that could be an option? Or the letters from "Boolprop's Birthday Party Event" would give some extra (27) for the inevitable going-over. Or even just repeats of the letters in boolprop?

If you want to continue with the all B names, consider it like a mini challenge! The rules are still in flux because it's a new challenge so we definitely appreciate any feedback you've given us! I really like Snazzle's HTTPSBOOLPROPNETINDEXPHP suggestion haha that's pretty impressive :lol: So maybe we can do that in the future? :party:

So if I wanted to I could go the OWBC route too? I have three so far and another on the way and so far I haven't seen any duplicate names. Plus there's many other languages you can use for B names too, like German, Italian, French, Japanese, Thai, Chinese etc. There's no rule that says you only have to use English B names. ^^

I think it's better as a mini challenge or naming theme so there's that option. I started mine and will be doing the HTTPSBOOLPROPNETINDEXPHP because it's a lot more fun to me :D

You could also repeat Boolprop 3 times. That equals out to 24. Then any extra could be named something funny. Like spelling out the name Palmer with the spares or even spelling false to close out the cheat.
