    This challenge looks so interesting! Will definitely be writing this down as a "to do" challenge :)

  • Cookingpup99Cookingpup99 Posts: 441 Member
    Thanks @Weathie Let me know how you get on and post some pictures.

    Has anyone else finished this, then I can add people to the leaders board.

    @cooking8464 where is the leadership board? i think i wanna link other peoples websites where they're doing their challenges to mine. Just so there's like a little community. This is like a long term commitment type of thing lol

    @thisdisaster1111 The leadership board for the parentcy challenge is on this thread on the original post so you could post the links here and I'll have a look if you would like to add their scores if that's what you mean?

    Started this challenge last night with a new sim. I'm not able to post pics/links yet so I can't show you her. D;
    Anyways, here is my current total:
    +2pts (having a level 2 career)
    She's had her baby and quit her job now. Trying to max her skill!

    I'm not sure what it means by "The heir is required to stay on the lot until they die". Are they allowed to go outside as long as another lot doesn't load or are they confined to just their rectangle lot?
    Really excited to start this.
    Sounds awesome! :)
  • Cookingpup99Cookingpup99 Posts: 441 Member
    @Chepan That's great! Do you know how to get pictures on here? If you don't I could help out :)

    @hiphoppop95 They are allowed to leave their lot, but they're not allowed to move off of the lot at all, so even when the next generation has taken over, the previous heir may not move off of the lot. Hope this helped and looking forward to hearing how it's going :)

    @Cookingpup99 : No I don't. I don't have enough posts yet either, I think? c:
    Update: My parent just maxed her writing skill! +15pts
    Total: 17pts! Now to wait for her daughter to grow into a YA.

    This sound like really fun challenge. In free time I will try it. Best luck for every challenger!
  • Cookingpup99Cookingpup99 Posts: 441 Member
    @Persefona711 Thanks :)
    @Chepan As far as I know, you have to have 5 badges, 30 posts and 5 likes I think... there is a thread somewhere about it. If you type in How To Become A Member in the search bar you should be able to find it :)

    Interesting challenge, I just started it. I got a question though, does the baby daddy really needs to go away? Can't my sim just keep him around like a boyfriend that lives away or something?
  • TazbangTazbang Posts: 1 New Member
    I am currently doing this challenge! Up to the second generation going on the third!
    My points so far are at 127 :) thankyou this is amazing haha
  • Cookingpup99Cookingpup99 Posts: 441 Member
    Sorry for the really late replies...

    @Persefona711 I've just had a look and it's great! I love that Judy has Hates Children trait, it makes for an interesting story.
    @ShyOrchid You probably don't need a reply now LoL, but you don't need to follow my rules completely if you don't want to, they're more like guidelines I guess, so rules that I would suggest to follow but you can change.
    @Tazbang Keep me updated if you're still doing the challenge, you're doing great :)
  • Persefona711Persefona711 Posts: 356 Member
    @Cookingpup99 Thank you :) I was thinking too that giving Judy hates children trait will make story more interesting. It occurred that sim don't become angry around own child but I think it's ok, it makes Judy a good mother after all :)

    @Persefona711 I hadn't realised that parents with hates children trait liked their children, a little annoying but oh well LoL. When you've finished the challenge make sure to let me know what your score is :)
  • Persefona711Persefona711 Posts: 356 Member
    I have a question.
    Can I move a future heir to another lot before I start his generation?
  • Cookingpup99Cookingpup99 Posts: 441 Member
    @Persefona711 If it was my gameplay, I would say no as the point of staying on the same lot is to build up a house that is passed down to each generation and full of history. However, as I said to @ShyOrchid, you may change the rules as you want as it's your game. As moving to a new lot isn't really going to make the challenge any easier or harder, it doesn't really matter :)

    I started this challenge about 1 or 2 weeks ago, and it's so fun. I do go by the rules but I wont be keeping track of all the point, but it's so fun! Glad I found it :)
  • Cookingpup99Cookingpup99 Posts: 441 Member
    @djoiced Thank you :) Don't worry about points, I added that in as a bit of fun and to see how everyone found the challenge.
  • Persefona711Persefona711 Posts: 356 Member
    @Cookingpup99 Thank you for your answer.
    I have some idea to move to another lot with my future heir but in some later generation come back to the first lot. I have too many ideas ;p
