    @Snowie Thanks for the long and detailed answer :smile: ! It really helped me to see the bigger picture of which packs to use and I have all EP´s and Packs so far. I think I might try this and start today.

    I actually completely forgot about this, but if you want you can start in Sulani--It's one of the recommended starting locations and there's lots of nice tribal CAS stuff from Island Living.

    That is where I have started mine and that was what I was thinking when I read this the other day - Sulani.

    Hi there,

    I would like to try this challenge!

    However, I have run into a small issue. The "gain hygiene from swimming" mod isn't working for me, my computer won't even let me download it! So I have decided to give up on the mod. Is there any way to gain hygiene without this mod during the pre-history stage?

    Your Sims should gain hygiene from swimming without a mod at all--it only goes up to 50% hygiene, though. You might be looking at an old version of the challenge, as that mod isn't recommended anymore (since it's both not needed and doesn't work anyway), so make sure you're using the most up-to-date rules here. You can also get hygiene from deodorizing cream made with the herbalism skill. You'll have to go to Granite Falls first for the ingredients, but they're all plants so you can easily regrow them at home. Hope that helps!

    Thank you. Yeah, the deodorizing cream works really well. I have the Google Doc now.

    I do have another question, sorry if you have had to answer it a million times.

    When the sim who started the generation (for example, the sim born in the Early Civilization generation), ages up to teenager, which generation do you choose the aspiration from? The generation they were born into or the next generation?

    This looks to be a very fascinating challenge. I have bookmarked this thread and will be happily lurking.

    I select their aspiration from the generation they were born in, but you can always change it once they've finished it!

    Thank you!

    One last question;

    How do you create a family painting?

    Thank you!

    One last question;

    How do you create a family painting?

    You need a Sim with level 2 painting skill or higher, then have them do a painting from reference. You're only required to have the heir to the next generation and their parents in the painting, but you can have as many Sims in it as you'd like. There's special allowances for you to move in a Sim to paint your family specifically so that you can get the whole family in there--check the fine print in the challenge-wide goals section!

    Hey all, so as I'm working on the next update I've been thinking about starting up a Discord server for this challenge! Anyone would be welcome to join, and would be a place for people to ask questions, suggest things, post screenshots/stories of their challenge, and chat. If you're interested in that or think you might use the server, let me know!

    Also, make sure if you're still following this thread or are new to the challenge that you bookmark the 2.0 thread instead, since that's where I'll be updating the challenge.
