12th Birthday Party - BABY BOOM CHALLENGE

Re: 12th Birthday Party - BABY BOOM CHALLENGE

Postby Livvielove » December 9th, 2017, 11:10 am

I have a lot of updates I need to catch up on, but it had been a while since I updated so here we go: 20 - The Slow Period
I hope to catch up with everyone's over the next day or so.

I also have a minor suggestion for the rules @Thai - would it be possible to move the naming themes OUT of the required rules and into the additional rules? Right now it seems a little confusing having the "Kids must be named HTTPSBOOLPROPNET" etc theme as part of the actual RULESET and then have a challenge of "Name all the kids starting with B" if that makes sense?

This looks like a fun challenge! Commenting to "save" the post so that I can easily come back to look at the rules. :)

I agree with cynicalbadger, I'm going to keep playing as I have been, though may change a couple of things (hello, LTW points) to complete some mini challenges and earn more points.

New update just now, Once!

Since I only had 4 kiddos, and my file seemed a bit glitchy, I am going to start over.

I get that, maybe if I clarify that HTTPSBOOLPROPNETINDEXPHP is the standard and the B name mini challenge is an alternative for extra points? Would that make sense to you or would it just be better to remove the compulsory name scheme entirely?

I like the idea of a compulsory naming theme, could we perhaps just have some options? As in:
a) HTTPSBOOLPROPNETINDEXPHP
b) BOOLPROP x 3
c) All B's (20 extra points)

You may alternatively choose to play the "NOT THE BS!" mini-challenge, in which case you would get +20 points :)


This is my edit to the rules, hopefully it works.

I have a question for this. Two actually.

1. Could I decide for my sim couple not to work? Or any sims in the household for that matter? Just have them live off what they could find/produce, and sell straight from sim inventory. Have that be my sole in come.
2. Could I do this and not collect points? I've not done a challenge for points yet, but I don't think I'd like it, be counting and keeping notes of point gains and penalties would kill some of the fun for me.

#1. Having one sim work is part of the rules and there's a degree of flexibility for it but part of the challenge is having a single sim look after the children for the majority of the time so I'd say no.

#2. You can definitely opt out of playing for points! Points are just there for people who choose to use them, as with most challenges :)

Oh. I kinda do that anyway with some files of my game play. So the challenge would basically what I do anyway, except not stopping at six kids, and not turning ageing off so the kids stay at different life stages. One parent working, the other not.

Maybe I won't try this challenge then.
