Sim Salad: Outluck. Outlast. Outlive. (Updated Feb. 22nd)

(Note: This isn’t an established challenge exactly, but it isn’t scripted either and I’m playing with some imposed structure that could loosely be called “rules.” Apologies if it doesn’t belong in this section!)

Have you ever put a sim in a pool and taken out the ladder? Ever made them use a stove in a 3×3 box, knowing it would end in disaster? Had them lie back and watch the clouds “just to see what happens”?

If you answered yes to any of the above questions, you forfeit the right to judge me for anything on this blog.

Long ago, when I was on my second legacy attempt and sometimes needed a break from emotionally investing in sims, I developed a highly systematic way of playing with life death.

I called it Sim Salad.

It was essentially a Survivor-style “game show” where eight contestants competed to be the last man standing… literally. They were hand-picked for superior athleticism and resilience created by randomizing the heck out of everything in CAS. The contestants had a few moments to get acquainted before they were launched into a series of challenges that varied with each season:

- The fire challenge
- The pool challenge
- The electrocution challenge
- The satellite challenge
- The foot race (the loser of which died by boolprop flies)
- And many more.

The idea was one contestant perished each round until only a single sim remained, who won the eternal glory of… well, being alive.

Morbid? Yes. Sadistic? Absolutely. A rip-off of The Hunger Games? ...It wasn’t published when I started doing this, so there.

I recently decided to revive good old Sim Salad and set it free into the world, since I never successfully documented the earlier “seasons.” So here it is for your (possible) enjoyment.

Thanks for your time! :)

If I say I love this, does that make me warped & twisted? :)

Spoiler:
Oddly enough, I'm really intrigued to see what other challenges you have waiting for these guys! I've got most of the TS3 packs, but haven't messed around too much with Showtime, and was surprised to see the tank isn't as deadly as I'd initially thought.

And I voted for Squonky, as he is my absolute favourite - I love the way you write his hydrophobia :)

If I say yes, a little bit, but please don't stop reading, does that make me a sell-out? :tongue: (I'm so glad you like it!)

Spoiler:
I also expected the Box of Danger to have much more... dangerous odds, but they seem to be about 1 in 100, which is kind of disappointing. :P

Haha, thanks! :) He's my first hydrophobe - I never knew they could be so much fun! And he seems to have a lot of fans, but it stands to be an interesting poll...

:popeye: Oh my goodness! This is amazing! It tickles that teeny, tiny part of my simmer side that is just a bit sadistic! Plus it's very funny! I'm excited for the next round :)
