Hey guys, it's Vul here again and I've been thinking...
I've seen some new interest in interactive reality shows here and there and with the new Jetset Season 3 sign-ups coming up next month, I got a funny idea.
I originally planned for Season 3 to have 10 real-life players playing a pair of twins each. But if I can get enough interest...
If I can get enough interest, I might be able to have 20 real-life players on season 3! Considering the meachanics of the season it can work out very well.
So, what do y'all think? You better get prepared for season 3 if you're interested.
It'll be on Sims 3, just for the record.
RESERVATIONS FOR SEASON 3
A total of 10 twins will be competing in the third Season of Jetset, in combinations of F/M, M/M and F/F twins. For each F/F twin a M/M twin will be competing. Each combination will be featured at the least twice.
If there are more than 10 reservations for the season, I am forced to handpick which players and twins will be competing! In case that happens, I will base my picks on the interestingness of the twins' personalities and how well they'll fit in with the others, and based on the level of activity of the real-life players in eventual previous Seasons they've competed in, if applicable. But if there are 20 or more people interested, I could change the mechanics of the twin twista little to allow 20 real life players. So spread the word!

WHAT HAPPENED UP TO THIS POINT
After the huge tragedy on the Luxury’s Lap, survivors Min Hee Nii and Odessa Wolff decided to keep the memory of the victims of Diana Jones alive by setting up a new reality show using Odessa's huge inheritance. In this show, 12 Sims will be living in a similar setting of luxury on the successor of the Luxury’s Lap, the Jetsetter, while playing for money. However, they will be haunted by a constant pressure caused by the fact that one of them, the "Assassin", is hunting them all down to send them off the ship, out of the game and back home.
All of the real-life players send in a Sim of themselves to be one of the players going on board of the Jetsetter, going to an unknown destination somewhere in Simnation. Whatever happens to the reallife players will affect what happens to the Sim. They will play Challenges to earn Clues and Simoleons* to discover the identity of the Assassin among them. That Assassin will try to sabotage these Challenges. After the challenge, the Assassin will pick one of the others in the game to Eliminate and send back home. That person will be out of the game. This will continue until just a few Sims are left in.
Every Challenge will be some kind of game, puzzle or anything like that, in which the players will have to reach certain goals to earn clues to the Assassin’s identity and/or to earn more money for their group winnings... Well, lets say it'll be put in a 'safe', okay?
Obviously, the Assassin will try to sabotage these Challenges, to prevent these Clues from leaking and the money from being earned. One thing, sometimes the final earnings will be decided by the Assassin's result of the Challenge.
After the Challenge, the Assassin will inform me about the players who could be a threat to his or her goal to remain undetected and Nominate them. The reasons can vary, from that person being too close to the Assassin’s identity to players who are doing too well on the Challenges, or any other reason he or she may have. Everybody who’s still in the game can suddenly receive a private message, telling them they've been Nominated. The players who are not Nominated are guaranteedly safe, while the others are in risk of getting Eliminated…
When the Nominees are informed, each player will make their Ranking: they'll pick their top 3 suspects. If the actual Assassin is in the top 3 of somebody, that person will earn points: 1 point if the Assassin is on place 3, 2 points if they are on place 2 and 3 points if they are on place 1. The Nominated players who have earned the most points will safe themselves from Elimination. (unless, more than 50% of the total cast would get saved). The others, well, their luck is depending on the Assassin's mercy...
Everybody, Nominated or not, will do their ranking. This is because the points will also play an important role at the finale...
The identity of the Nominees who were saved by the Ranking and those who weren't will be told to the Assassin. They will have to pick their next victim out of the Nominees left on the chopping block. The Eliminated player will be revealed in the next Episode...
DIARY ROOM ENTRIES
DRE’s are messages your Sim will say in the Diary Room, directed straight to the people watching the show. These messages can be about anything, from game strategy to small talk, from issues with other Sims on board to random randomness! Please feel free to let your Sim’s personality truly speak here, so I can know more precisely how to let your Sims talk and act et cetera, and how the situation behind the scenes of the actual game goes on! This is also the reason why I would like to see a unique Sim; it makes the show more interesting and it is more fun to write, both for me and you – win-win!
A few rules:
- Please send in DRE's, even when it's once in a while; we wouldn’t want your Sim to be forgotten, would we?
- Please don’t give me a huge overload either. A maximum of 2 per episode, maybe 3 if the show reaches it's end.
- If you want to let a DRE actually happen in an episode, please follow these guidelines: split the DRE into two parts: one in which you'll describe the scene happening, and one in which you Sim reacts on it in the Diary Room. I feel most comfortable working like that.
- If I say “no more DRE’s beyond this point”, then I got the episode planned. Please safe your DRE for next episode…
Of course I can’t open this thread without a few rules, to keep things friendly over here.
- Always be nice to others on the thread. Thread other players with respect. Even though your Sims might want to lock other Sims up in a fridgeless little room, remove the pool ladders when they’re swimming or put a lot of carpets in front of their fireplaces, please be nice to the real life players.
- Play fair. Rather lose fairly than win with cheating.
- Don’t post pictures of messages of me only meant for you to see. It’s send only to you for a reason.
- HAVE FUN!!!
Got any questions? Don't hesitate to ask!
