Snow White & Seven Dwarves (Toddler Challenge by Rawla)

RawlaRawla Posts: 6,494 Member
SNOW WHITE & SEVEN DWARVES
Notice: I'm sorry for the plain text instead of the pretty picture and banners that I had before. Photobucket did a number on me. I hope you still find the challenge to be fun. Happy Simming!


*Play Tested on Normal Lifespan*



Doc - Inquisitive or Independent
Grumpy - Fussy
Sleepy - Angelic
Bashful - Clingy or Charmer
Happy - Charmer or Independent
Sneezy - Wild
Dopey - Silly
[/center]


GOALS
1) Snow White (care taker) must become good friends with all of the dwarves before they become children.
2) All Dwarves must be protected (cared for) so that they are not snatched away by the evil. (Child Services)
3) ( optional ) For a harder challenge you must also get all dwarves to level 3 in Potty skill. (play tested, it is possible)
4) ( optional ) How close to the picture above can you make your little dwarves look? (outfits or otherwise)


TO BEGIN
1) Create or Download one YA caretaker (either gender). Be sure they do not already have skills. You may choose whichever traits or aspiration that you wish. (Optional: Try playing with Big Happy Family)
2) Create seven...yes SEVEN little toddlers...er...Dwarves. Give them one of the traits listed above. Do not use a trait more than once.
3) Survive the insanity that is going to come. Will the evil snatch them away? Care for them well.

AGING: On
LIFESPAN: Your Choice
Short (insane)
Normal (hard)
Long (easy)


RULES
1) You may not use any cheats. (except to reset stuck Sims)
2) You may choose any genders or traits you wish for 'Snow White' and each of the dwarves.
3) You may name the caretaker and dwarves anything you wish.
4) Each toddler must be given one of the above traits. You may only use each trait once.
5) You may use any of the service Sims you can afford. (maid, gardener, nanny, butler, etc.)
6) You may not get a job that takes you away from the home/neighborhood. (Work-at-home jobs, collecting, painting, etc. is okay)
7) You may control any or all of the members in the active household as you wish.
8) You may choose any Lot Traits that you want to. Or you may have fun randomizing it. Your choice.
9) Your Snow White may NOT eat apples. They are evil! :wink: IF she does have apples, you must put her to sleep until she wakes up naturally.


TIPS
  • Moodlet Solver and other aspiration rewards are your friends.
  • Leaving group meals on the counter/floor will allow your dwarves to feed themselves at will.
  • Hiring a cook will help your Snow White with meals. They even clean up dirty dishes and potties.
  • Invite your friends over. The dwarves can pester them for things they need/want, while Snow White sleeps. (Hopefully not for good. Don't eat that apple!)
  • Dancing with your dwarves will increase friendship with them.


POINTS

For those that like to play challenges with points...

+1 for each skill level a dwarf earns in each category. (possible 23/each, 161 total)
+10 for each dwarf your Snow White becomes 'Good Friends' with (total possible 70)
+1 for each dwarf that ages successful into a child. (possible 7)
- 20 for each dwarf that is snatched by the evil. (taken by child services)

Total Possible Points: 238

    It would definitely help learn about the toddlers :)
  • RawlaRawla Posts: 6,494 Member
    @misfit091376 That it does. I'm helping to play test another awesome toddler challenge that has inspired me to create this one. I'm learning much.

    Such a great idea to use the toddlers as Dwarves with Snow White as their Caregiver.

    Thanks EQ! It was while I was playing your own (Toddler Mania) challenge that this idea came into my head. So much fun to be had with these cute little tots. I love them!

    I also think the Snow White and Seven Dwarves can inspire some really fun stories too.

    @Rawla @EuphorialQueen I agree! A brilliant idea :+1: I can see all the Dwarves in my mind....what fun!

    Are you writing a story Rawla? I love your stories.

    I have added 3 options (difficulty levels) in the lifespan length.
    LIFESPAN:
    Short (insane)
    Normal (hard)
    Long (easy)

    @misfit091376 - Thanks for your comment, it inspired me to add a difficulty range in the lifespan players can choose. You're awesome! :smiley:

    @Rawla It was fun! I probably will go back to it also, once I learn a bit more about how toddlers work ;) That is better lol :) I don't know how you did it! <3

    I was already insane, so it wasn't too long of a trip to make. lol Joking. It was insane, especially in the beginning. I almost didn't make it several times, but as time went on and skills improved (and their needs became staggered) it became easier for her to care for them. I had been trying to care for their food needs with the high chair. That was true insanity. I finally learned of a trick and tried it out. It made all the difference in the world. (making group meals for the little ones to feed themselves)

    P.S. Moodlet Solver helped too. That and the pause button. :wink:

    @Rawla I put food down, but they weren't going for it lol. Maybe I wasn't giving them enough time. I think for me it was so much right at first. I'll give it another go and go longer to see if I can handle it better :)

    Put the food on a counter or table then direct the Toddler to "Grab a Plate" :)

    Thanks for answering EQ! :) Yes, you are allowed to play the dwarves as much as you wish. 'Grab a Plate' is an option you can use.

    Oh, I am sorry to hear that.

    I've found even putting a plate of food on the floor will allow them to grab a plate also. I generally make them "toddle" the length of the house to get to the food and the to the beds and potties, this seems to help increase their movement skill pretty quickly. ;)

    I've added a few more tips, thanks to players comments. And also a new rule I thought was cute.

    @BUTTONSGINGER I got burned out on story writing when photobucket became insane to use for pic downloads. It took forever just to get one ready. That and the lack of muse hit my story-telling hard. So now I just toss up some pics and commentary (when I'm not lazy and actually make a thread) for others to read if they wish.

    @SoulGal7 offered tips in another thread I thought were really good. I've added them to our list above.
