    @EuphorialQueen Im not sure if i should keep recording or just continue playing for fun, Im not like all them amazing youtubers and honestly Im too shy to talk in my videos and I cant afford a great editing program I wanted to record using OBS but sadly Windows movie maker on my computer wont read OBS file >.<

    What do u think of my asylum videos should I keep going?

    Might I suggest adding a bit of explanation for each episode. That could serve to keep viewers interested to know what is happening.

    Just finished my first Asylum Challenge on medium difficulty. I'm honestly surprised more didn't go awry during the challenge.
  • RockshelleRockshelle Posts: 3 New Member
    Not sure why the rest of my post was cut off previously. Oh well. :smile:

    Finished the Asylum Challenge on Medium difficulty, with 422 points. Zero sim deaths :smiley: -20 points for 1 kitchen fire and -20 points for 1 24hr period in which the Asylum's power was shut off. 150 points for 3 aspirations complete. I started with the Painting Aspiration, which definitely helped to fund the Asylum's abysmal high bills. Next I opted for Nerd Brain Aspiration then finished with Renaissance Sim Aspiration. The last one was great as my main sim, Clare, had already built up quite a few skills. 296 points for skill points accumulated between all 8 residents of the Asylum. And lastly, 16 points for Satisfaction points obtained between all 8 sims.

    All in all, quite the fun challenge. If I ever attempt this challenge again I would definitely opt for the Hard difficulty and see what more trouble the asylum would cook up.

    It's great reading posts on everyone's ongoing challenges!

    This sounds like fun! I've heard of the Asylum challenge, but never read the rules until now. Thinking about giving it a try after I complete my ISBI challenge. Love all the stories from y'all that have been/are playing it now.

    I do have one question before I begin though. Am I allowed to 'claim' one of the beds for my caretaker? Or is he/she at the mercy of the residents? Probably be more fun/challenging to not claim one eh? lol

    Just thought of one more question, if my caretaker completes the Best Selling Author aspiration which rewards The Book of Life, can he/she bind copies to residents and possibly save their lives if needed?

    nooooo! my sim just totally got electrocuted when fixing the oven. I am sorry but I totally broke the rules because i couldnt let my sim die and i used one of her best friend to pleed for her. Im sorry but I didnt want the challenge to end already =( I am the worst simmer ever but I just couldnt let Maddi die... Im sorry everyone. If she dies again I promise i will let her stay dead and then challenge failed for me *tears*

    ok so guilt kinda just set in and im not going to play Maddi anymore, I FAILED. My first challenge and I failed This is sooo sad =(

    If anyone wants to watch this Lets Play of this challenge here is a link, The first 15 videos are NOT voiced because i was too scared but the last 5 videos are. Any tips and advice would be appreciated, Thankyou everyone

    @Karababy52 From what I remember from the rules, no claiming of beds or other objects for your caretaker. For example, no storing books or a violin in your personal inventory to hold for your own use. As for the Book of Life, I'm pretty sure that is not allowed. Same goes for any reward that permanently alters your caretakers needs or prolongs/saves their lives. It's okay to use the one-time only rewards like "fun potion" but are not allowed to use the "never-weary" reward with your satisfaction points.

    Hope this helped.

    Under gameplay
    Cheats/mods/hacks which boost sim’s needs or skills are not allowed.
    Not sure what Mod you are asking about.
    For this challenge there will be an easy mode, medium mode and hard mode, just to spice things up a bit.
    Mode meaning different versions of the rules. Perhaps you misread?

    I'm pretty sure in the rules it says you can plead and that it's not cheating.

    Hi everyone! I decided to try this out even though it's about 2 years old. Lol. And I'm on day 6 and no one has died. Everything was broken but my character fixed it all. I'm pretty shocked no one is dead yet considering the comments I read saying how first day the did. Just wanted to let people know :) it's still fun !!
  • GhostyGirl1031GhostyGirl1031 Posts: 3 New Member
