Magnolia Springs, a BACC | Updated 8.4.2017

Postby Iya » October 31st, 2014, 11:44 pm

I decided to rejoin the BaCC bandwagon when I discovered Nepheris's version of the challenge. Her style suits me a little more so I decide to put my Highlanders BaCC on hiatus for a while. So without furthur ado...

Housekeeping:
Spoiler:
Ruleset: Nepheris' Build a City Challenge Version with some tweaks of my own here. I will be adding some custom careers to the mix with their own rules to unlock.
Gameplay: My original rules & Magnolia Springs's Laws & Regulations

Note: I'm playing with mods/hacks including community time, ACR, and a many other to make the game more "realistic." Visit this page if you want a complete listing of my mods and hacks.

Style: A combination of documentary and plotted storyline (more of these if I could).
Meet the Settlers & see their dynamics

1st Council Meeting

Round 1: 2000-2003 (Spring)
Andre | Cravens | Westcliff | Rafferty | St. Vincent | Sabin [NEW] | Overview [NEW]

Round 2: 2004-2007 (Summer)
Andre | Cravens [NEW] | Westcliff | Rafferty | St. Vincent | Sabin | 2nd Meeting

Round 3: 2008-2011 (Fall)
Andre | Cravens | Westcliff | Rafferty | St. Vincent | Sabin | 3rd Meeting

Scores: Updated as of 8.4.2017

LOL. I just noticed that I named my siggy wrong for this city. It's supposed to say "Magnolia Springs". :rotfl:

This kind of BACC always interested me but made me nervous to keep track of. But the way you've done it is amazing! I'm really excited to see what's coming next!

keeping track of it is hard, but thanks to EXCEL, I've set up the sheets so that everything will automatically calculate for me. Now, I only have to add new characters and their info as well as the new business and its info and everything else is will change accordingly to the rules. I have one for Nepheris' version of BaCC and one for the orginal version. If you would like it, I don't mind sharing.

Hey Hollywood! :wave: I'm really glad you enjoy the challenge so far. If you're playing it, are you planning to post it? it'll be nice to see another Neperis' version challenge out here.

As for the mod, are you referring to the age mod or how I turned aging off for the meeting?

Maybe . My sims 2 went to crap so it may take me a while to post it.
But I was referring to the age mod .

LOL, as long as you have fun, do what you're happy with. I like to keep them posted because I like to have the memories of each legacies as they continued in the challenge. :D

As for the age mod, I actually used the age mods from Phaenoh's Let's Kids Be Kids series, in which Phaenoh's tries to match up the aging stage a little more realistically. However, I tweaked it with SimPE to get it just the way I like it because I reach day to present a year in real life. So it's not exactly closed to mine, but the closest off all the aging mods out there at the time. I can share with you my version if you prefer. More info about my age mod is here. Also, please note that I also altered my pregnancy (sims & pets) to match my age mod.
