I've updated the rules with a points scoring system and new mini-challenges (some may or may not be named after the people who suggested them :shiftyeyes: ).
You can def apply the points retrospectively for your currently running challenge!

Cool. Thanks,, Thai! I'm just now writing up my next chapter, so it is perfect timing for me.

Editing in Chapter 6

Quick question:
OWBC Style – Bad Apple
Have one child of each sex be a bad apple who you can’t control explicitly or view the wants/skills/etc of.


Does there only have to be one of each gender or do we need to select a new one after they move out of the house?

@Jenn: No, only two! One male bad apple and one female bad apple. After the bad apples move out, you don't need to choose more.

Question. Is it alright if I stick to my current name theme? Boolprop x3? Not that the https isn't good, I think it's fun. But I personally find it easier to keep track of. Repeating the pattern for me allows for a greater differential when it comes to spares.

I'm sorry to always be a pain guys. :sorry: :sorry:

I've decided to go with the new naming theme instead of sticking the B naming scheme. I've never been one to care for points, to be honest, and then there's more range of names to use.
This does mean that I've had to change the names of the children that are already born but I think I prefer their new names better than the old ones.
I am going to have a go at the Bad Apple challenge though as uncontrollable Sims are always fun to play with. I will also try and upload the family but I'm probably not going to start that until I'm about halfway done.

Sorry for taking so long to finish the next update. Christmas has my attention more than anything right now, plus I'm also sick again (nothing new when it comes to me). I should have two updates up before Christmas but then that's probably going to be it for me until the new year. I'll catch up with everyone's updates when I can!

Happy Holidays!

I'm doing Boolprop x3 also and I don't plan to change it as I have 11 kids already. I will do it that way if I do the challenge again in the future. I just won't take points for the things that are too late to do i.e. half of the mini challenges.

Yeah, it's not a worry haha. We didn't change the rules until now. If you have all the kids you still get the medal, regardless of the naming theme ^_^

Only just getting to see the new rules now and nice! I'm going to attempt calculating my score at the end but keep playing as I'm playing so I don't get too confused with all the mini challenges

Spoiler:
’Til Death Do Us Part – The cynicalbadger Challenge
Let your couple age to be as old as possible to still be fertile, and ONLY THEN start giving them life extenders or making them a supernatural sim. So for female sims, start giving them life extenders the day before their elder birthday. For male sims, push their age bar as far as it can go before you start panicking that they might die of old age and then start giving them life extenders.


It's so cruel and beautiful :awesome:


I'm so behind with everyone's updates (and playing my own) but will hopefully catch up next week
