Just The Way I Am: new challenge

«13
Hello,and welcome to my first post on the Sims 4 forums! Today I''ll bring to you a new challenge called "Just The Way I Am". This will be a new and hopefully difficult way to keep you entertained!

NOVICE RULES
First, in CAS, you create your Sim. The appearance can be any way you want, apart from the hair colour. We'll talk about that later. However, all your traits must be emotional! This will mean you don't have to mould out a winning combo, or at least it's not as complicated.
Your choices are:
POSITIVE- choose 1
Cheerful(becomes Happy)
Creative(become Inspired, and although they're sometimes upset when not being Creative, being Creative is a good idea for almost everyone.)
Genius (become Focused)
Self-Assured- these Sims are just often Confident- nothing else to it.
NEUTRAL/NEGATIVE, choose 2
Active- not everyone has time for workouts! Neutral.
Gloomy- who wants to be sad? Negative.
Goofball- would be Positive, but you can die by being playful! Neutral.
Hot-Headed- who wants to be angry? Negative.
Romantic- Sometimes you don't have time to flirt. Although it's probably an OK idea still, like Goofball. Neutral,but close to good. I recommend this.

Your goal is to achieve one apiration in all Aspiration types over the generations. These are: Athletic (Bodybuilder), Creativity (Bestselling Author, Musical Genius, or Painter Extraordinare), Deviance (Public Enemy and Chief of Mischief), Family (Big Happy Family and Successful Lineage), Food (Master Chef and Master Mixoligist), Fortune (Fabulously Wealthy and Mansion Baron), Knowledge (Renaissance Sim, Nerd Brain, and Computer Whiz), Love (Hopeful Romantic and Soulmate), Nature (Freelance Botanist, Angling Ace and The Curator) and Popularity (Friend of the World, Party Animal and Joke Star.)
Depending on your Aspiration Type, you must have a certain hair colour.
Love: Pink
Nature: Green
Deviance: Black
Popularity: Yellow/Blonde
Knowledge: Brown
Creativity: Light Blue
Athletic: White/Grey (you may break this if you want a young-looking Sim, in which case go for light blonde.)
Food: Purple
Family: Dark Blue

For the first 3 generations, only emotional traits are acceptable.
For the next 2, Hobbies are allowed too.
For the 3 after that, you're also allowed Social. BUT one of the traits must be negative (Not neutral. Or positive,but you knew that.)
Then, if you really can't do 1 per generation, Lifestyles come into play. Still one negative though, mind. This goes on for 5 years.
So at the end of 13 generations without accomplishing your goal, you fail Novice Level. More rules soon.

    Normal rules:
    At the start you still CAS like in Novice, but all traits are avaliable of the bat. However, all are negative!
    You must also do this for the founder's children. However, the grandchildren only need 2 negative. This si the first of 3 gens to go this way. After that, only 1 negative trait must be selected.
    There is 1 big difference, though. You must complete all aspirations rather than aspiration types! The aspirations are in the Novice rules and there are 23 aspirations (I think ;)) so you have 15 gens to complete the task. You fail if you don't!
    ALso, there must be a Family Trait. This must be a Negative or Neutral Lifestyle or Social trait. If it's Neutral, you must wait until Neutrals are allowed, then give all the trait. We're talking children- Captain One-Traits. Negagive is the same, except it's in the bloodline from your founder.
    Here is a list of Negative, Neutral and Positive traits.
    Negative:
    Gloomy
    Hot-Headed
    Clumsy
    Glutton
    Lazy (like me :D)
    Snob
    Evil
    Hates Children
    Loner
    Mean

    Neutral:
    Active
    Romantic
    Goofball
    Foodie
    Childish
    Insane (my Family Trait)
    Materialistic
    Slob
    Non-Committal

    Positive:
    Cheerful
    Creative
    Genius
    Self-Assured
    Art Lover
    Bookworm
    Geek
    Music Lover
    Perfectionist
    Ambitious
    Loves Outdoors
    Neat
    Bro
    Family-Orientated
    Good
    Outgoing

    Hard rules:
    Yes, this is going to be tricky. But there is no time limit, so I guess...
    In Hard difficulty, you have to max all skills as well as achieve all aspirations. Some will be required due to aspiration and job. Others? Not so easy!
    The Family Trait rule has changed. It has to be NEGATIVE. And you have to choose from 3 pools.
    Pool 1:
    Gloomy, Hates Children, Snob and Lazy.
    Pool 2:
    Hot-Headed, Loner and Mean.
    Pool 3: Clumsy, Evil and Glutton.
    For 2 generations, your Pool 1 trait is your FT,then Pool 2 for the next couple, then Pool 3, then it recycles back to your Pool 1 trait. It repeatsm until you've completed.

    Warning: Extra Hard'll be extra hard.

    I'm working with Samuel Doran, a Self-Confident, Romantic and Goofballish Sim that aspires to find his Soulmate. Screengrabbing is broken on my version of TS4 though. Would anyone be interested?
  • TheSimulatorSimmerTheSimulatorSimmer Posts: 36 New Member
    Your "To be A Sim-Illionaire" series is awesome by the way! How did you not die that time you were at Eliza's?
  • TheSimulatorSimmerTheSimulatorSimmer Posts: 36 New Member
    Is anyone checking this out? If so, how's it going?

    Intrested in your story? I think you should give it a go. That's the only way to see. Plus if people see the challenge unfolding they are more likely to give it a go if it looks fun/challenging/interesting.

    Hope you don't mind but I submitted your challenge on another post here, someone is collecting all the challenges in one place, kind of a reference post for people after something new. That'll perhaps give you a bit more exposure :)

    LOL. No idea :) She's fun to write. Finding her story a lot easier to write than my legacy, I just can't seem to find the voice for that one, think it's cos it's more serious! I'll get there I'm sure :)

    I'm pretty sure you grasped I meant the Mortified part, but I guess most humans could die of hysteria too :D I saw the post in my notifications, and it'll help some more notice it as well. I just tried writing on Wordpress though, and it was tricky without pics. Is there a SImmer that I could tell the details to that would make him? Just so I wouldn't have to write 20 post's worth about appearance :p

    What isn't working? The print screen or the Tab option to take photos?
  • TheSimulatorSimmerTheSimulatorSimmer Posts: 36 New Member
    Button to take pics; nothing appears. Dunno why.

    I like this challenge. I'm waiting to get bored with my current save before I start over and try a challenge and story. I've never done either. But I've been reading some stories and I am thinking I might like to give it a go though. Im a little nervous though...lol.

    Somehow I had gone through 4 versions of the sims without realising there were challenges! lol! I'm really enjoying having that little bit of focus :)

    Did that help your screenshots?


  • TheSimulatorSimmerTheSimulatorSimmer Posts: 36 New Member
    Yes it did, I'll try and get it up. The only prob is that my Sims PC is not the ChromebookI use, so it may take a while
