    Fun and seemingly fast challenge! Quick question: is using food/music for the baby's gender allowed?

    Also I think you mean short by fast lifespan?

    I've just started doing this challenge, but am not sure if I did get it very well, so let me ask you this, I made a main sim, she's married now, when they have a baby it means that I have a mother a father and a son/daughter ?

    This looks fun.

    I am planning to do this, but I will be leaving off the "Step" category because I don't want to break up any of my families to accomplish that.

    Okay, so I'm not exactly sure how this works because the OP is a little unclear. Like, if you start off and create just one single, young adult sim, there is no possible way for that young adult sim to have any grandparents or parents for that matter, if you just created one sim.

    The way I did it was to create a sim (Gen 1). Have that sim get married and have a couple of kids (Gen 2). Then have those kids get married and have kids of their own (Gen 3). I then took one of the Gen 3 kids and made that my "Main Sim," a.k.a the one who will be taking all the pictures and having the family reunion. That way, the Gen 1 sim that I created is the grandparent. Gen 2 is their parent. And then you can complete the rest of the challenge, just make sure to use that Gen 3 child as the 'Main Sim.' So, essentially, this challenge will take 5 generations to complete.

    Gen 1 = Grandparents
    Gen 2 = Parents, Uncles, Aunts, Main Sim's Mother & Father In Law
    Gen 3 = Main Sim, Main Sim's Siblings, Main Sim's Spouse, Main Sim's Cousins, Main Sims Brother & Sister In Law
    Gen 4 = Main Sim's Children, Main Sim's Nieces & Nephews, Main Sim's Son & Daughter In Law
    Gen 5 = Main Sim's Grandchildren

    I hope that clears it up. That's the way I am playing it.

    Yeah, I found the OP's post to be very confusing as well.

    I also found that the OP's explanation was a little off, so I'm going to do a quick run through to get a feel for how this goes while taking notes on what works and what doesn't. This seems like an easy enough challenge. I really want to make this a story type thing the second time through and go slower to really experience it all. I'm excited for this and can't wait to try this one out, along with all the other ones that have peaked an interest with me as well! Haha!

    If anyone's interested, I added all the rules, as well as shacoria's clarification, to a google doc. The link is here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1LoFi2YHVDmw2wVW99Z9PXRWeIEvfFkxZuM0Z6E0n0N4/edit?usp=sharing

    So I have added some of my own rules and here are them
    - When the main sim I played as turns into a elder I have to switch into a new sim
    - If any of my sims die I can’t bring them back to life
    - I can use testingcheats when I’m building my house but it can only be between 10,000 100,000 sim currency (I don’t know how to spell it) it might be a lot but then when you used it you are forced to go back to 1,000 sim currency.
    - It can have whatever job you want except criminal but if you marry someone whit that job already then that sim can keep it.
    - You can adopt cat and dogs but only when your first child is born or when before that.
    - They can have a hobby that can give them money like painting or writing ect but you cannot stay home one day just for doing that hobby.
    - It can marry any NPC sim they want too and you can add sims from the gallery.

    This is just rules I made and you don’t need to use if you don’t want too
