    I finally found the time to get some CC for my challenge but along the way I found really good things that some of you guys might appreciate:

    Practically almost all the things on History Lover's sims blog. You can find a lot of stuff in the Edwardian section of it and it really helps. It helps later on in the 1900s and for 1800s.

    LonelyBoy has some really great 1920's themed CC as well that I'm close to being ready to use in my challenge (:

    @flutegirl_132 - Ooh, thanks! I just started the challenge but I'll definitely keep his posts in mind when I do get to 1920's.

    You're welcome! There's unfortunately not as much Edwardian CC as I'd like, so I've had to make do with mixing and matching. Good luck on your challenge!

    Thanks! Since you're also doing the challenge too, I wish the best of luck to you, too.

    One idea is that in the war times, you had to give something away (sell it) every Sunday (something in your house or something you crafted), as part of an effort to raise money for the war. But then don't keep the money - use this- ctrl+shift+c to open the cheat box, enter: testingcheats true, then enter: money X (x is the amount of money you had before giving something "away") Just an idea!! :) :) :)

    Since in the 1890s-1920s there wasn't very good medical care, what about during those 3 decades, anytime a sim in your household gives birth, you have to roll three 6-sided dice. If the sim has a single birth, and if they roll 1-9, they live with no sickness, 10-15, they live, but they can't be out of bed for more then 3 hours at a time, and they shouldn't be outside or overexerting themselves, and getting an in-game sickness will kill them (use your cowplant). Sickness lasts for 3 in-game days. If they roll 16-18 they die (once again, use your cowplant). If your sim has twins, 1-7 is live, 8-14 is live with sickness, 15-18 is die. If your sim has triplets or more, then 1-5 is live, 6-10 is live with sickness, and 11-18 is die. What do you think?

    Love the Challenge!

    I'm using @CuteCoffeeGal 's revised rules though. I'm too impatient for the original one.
    @GeniusSimmerGirl I like both your ideas, however, I'm already in 1923 and have a full household so I probably won't be able to use the latter one :(

    Glad you're finding my revision helpful @fireflysmelody! Let me know if they give you any problems - so far I think I'm the only person who has used them, so a second user is great!

    I've been playing this challenge for over a year now (off and on), and am in the 1970s :) (accidentally skipped most of the 1920s due to some heir issues/confusion). It's a lot of fun, but I started it before I had ANY expansion/game/stuff packs, and since then (especially with Glamour stuff and Get Together) things have been added that I think would have really enhanced certain decades. So now I'm planning on finishing it, then restarting the game in a new save/new characters. Really looking forward to it!

    And @CuteCoffeeGal , I'm looking forward to checking out your videos and thank you for elaborating more on the challenge rules!

    One thing I wanted to add: Since Get To Work added sickness, until maybe 1920s?, an added difficulty could be that every time your Sim gets sick, you roll the dice to see if they live or die. I may or may not do that, but I thought it might add more tension.

    I’m really wanting to try this challenge but having a difficult time finding good clothes and hair styles for the decades. Especially the 1890s. Any help?
