Hi! I've started doing this challenge and am almost at the end of Gen 1. However, I'm having trouble deciding on an heir. I've narrowed it down to two and I'd like some help in deciding which one to choose. Please help!!
I'm also working on a website to host the story but I won't link here until I've done a few chapters.
Spoiler:
First is Nova, youngest of triplets. She is Self-Assured and a Genius, and hopefully will receive the Family-Orientated trait when she ages to YA (the trait has currently gone missing for teens in my game). She has the Top Academic aspiration and will be an Astronaut if she is the heir.

Second is Galaxy, the youngest of twins, who has just aged up to teen. She is a Self-Assured Geek, with her third trait to be High Maintainence. She has the Computer Whiz aspiration and will initially be a Tech Guru, most likely switching to Astronaut later on if she is the heir.

I’m back on the final generation of this challenge. My gen 2 has four kids and they all have alien skin. What happens if they can’t have a a human-looking child? All of the children of the alien sims in the family tree have had alien-skinned children so I’m not holding out much hope!

Well, the sixth child was born and there’s still no non-alien skinned child :shrug: Any thoughts? It doesn’t seem to be genetically possible for an alien to have a human-looking child!

Edit: looking back through all my games, I have never had an alien have a child with non-alien skin. I feel like this is an impossible task! Next generation, sure, but not the first generation. Should there be a clause in this challenge if you have six children who look alien, or are my sims going to have to keep going until they maybe get a human-skinned child? :shrug: Or create a fourth generation?

Had some time today to post a couple of chapters for gen 2! Still trying to work out what to do in gen 3 about the lack of human-looking children...

I've not been able to log in to this account until now. But yay I'm back and sooooo sorry for not getting here sooner to say:

[RULE CHANGE]
  • Have at least human-looking three offspring with your human spouse.
I hope this helps. If you have any other difficulties, please let me know. So much has been changed and adjusted in the game mechanics since I wrote this challenge. Thanks for sticking with it! ♥

Thank you :). I finished the challenge a few days after posting that question, getting one of the kids to have twins before I wrapped things up, and one of the twins was human looking so I figured that counted ^^ . I’ll be finishing posting everything after I get the updates for the 12th Baby Boom done, complete with score.

Interestingly, I have continued the family on in the Trailer Park challenge and of the 17 grandchildren born to the gen 3 heir, only three have alien coloured skin. In the extended family, less than a third of the grandchildren of aliens have the coloured skin. I imagine that the green/purple/blue skins will die out within the next two generations.

Yay for finishing!!! I'm thrilled! :bounce: :#1: So sorry it was so hard. Silly challenge likes to throw difficulties our way. [edit to add... 17 grandchildren, wow! That's awesome.]

Thank you! Just finished an update, so getting closer to the end of gen 2!

Chapter 2.5 - Not much happens :)

Is there a flair for this challenge or just a generic one?

I believe there used to be a little alien-looking one with a plumbob over its head.
