Create a household challenge

anettesbanettesb Posts: 39,166 Member
First, this game is just for fun, but beware I might gift for creativity or kindness, though I only gift from clean wish lists.
This game welcomes people that play sims 1, sims 2, sims 3 or sims 4, they will all work in this. :tongue:

So what’s the goal?
1) The goal is to create a household of sims based on the limited info you have been given.
2) And to share creative ideas.
3) But mostly to have fun.

Rule, yes we do need some.
1) Any sims games go, as long as you can follow the given info in the challenge.
2) CC is perfectly fine (just tell us that you use it).
3) Create a Pattern (CAP) is perfectly fine ( just tell us you use it).
4) Altering hight mods and the like that affect the sims is perfectly fine ( just tell us you use it).
5) No need to upload, but hey share if you can.
6) Follow the guide on how to accept and give a challenge.
7) Be nice!
8) Have fun!
9) allways take the lates given challenge, if you can't do to what games you own then you must wait.


if by chance a challenge isn't taken after a few days or many posts I will either take it (if I don't have 1 curently) and post a new, or repost it saying this is the curent challenge.


it is perfectly fine to complete a challenge here and enter it in other contests, provided they allow, this way this thread can serve as an inspiration.

clarification: a houshold is sims living on the same lot, they do not need to be related or even like each other, they just live togehter.
In sims 3 a houshold can be from 1 to 8 sims, if pets are installed there can be up to 10 sims, with still max 8 human sims and max 6 animal sims.
http://www.carls-sims-3-guide.com/technicalhelp/households.php
housholds can be shared, my surgestion is to uploade them as a houshold, if you choose to uploade. http://www.thesims3.com/exchange/households
a houshold need to have atleast 1 human sim age YA to elder.

    Guide to How it works:
    It is a little like a Relay race… this is how it goes:
    1) Person 1 give a challenge.
    2) Person 2 takes it, and immediately give a new one, before starting on their work.
    3) Person 3 takes it, and immediately give a new one, before starting on their work.
    4) And so on …..
    So you basically take a the curent challenge, give a new challenge and start working on your creation with no time limit.


    How to give a challenge:
    First of all, name your challenge (give it a catchy title). Then, tell a few things about 1 sim in the household, leave room for creativity, and don’t make it too complex that people need to own too many EP’s to take it. You will also tell a little bit about those he/she lives with.

    Examples of Challenges:
    a) Vegetarian Klutz: Lizzy is a teen, who loves to hang out with her friends, she is very into animal welfare, so has decided to become a vegetarian. Unlike her brothers, Lizzy has no talent for sports or music; she is actually very clumsy. As many teens do, she thinks her parents are often nagging, but still she does like to do things with them – now and then.

    b) Grumpy Old Farmer: Mr Green is an old bachelor. Some call him a grumpy hermit, but in reality he just likes to be alone working in his garden and tending to his animals, and they are more than enough company for him. Only thing he feels he needs people for is a chess game now and then.

    c) Twin Opposites Unite: Jane just entered the university with her twin Annie; they now live in a dorm with 6 other sims. Jane aspires to become a journalist, and takes her studies very seriously, unlike Annie who just wants to party, which Jane finds troublesome as they share a room.

    d) Before the Simwarts Express: Casper doesn’t have it easy, 1 thing is having fiery red hair, and the other, he is a wizard. This might be cool later, but right now at age 8, all his classmates make fun of him, and he can do nothing about it. This has made him quite shy, but also has driven him to prove that he is gifted. To him, everything needs to just be, done perfectly.

    So a few sentence describing some part of them, rest is up to the one creating them.
    do make sure we know 3-10 things about them and their family, that can be used in create a sim.
    :warning: note: do note take these exsamples given, they purly there to show you how a challenge can be given.



    How to take a challenge
    1) Quote the post with the challenge (remember to take the latest posted, not one already claimed)
    Writ “I take this” – or something similar
    2) Right after that post, make a new post with the challenge you give (see how above)
    3) Make a note so you can find the challenge again when you turn it in, I suggest copy pasting the challenge and saving it in a document, like this:
    Anettesb’s Challenge: (Url of that challenge’s page)
    “Extinguishing Romeo: Roger always wanted to be a firefighter, so right after high school he signed up for training. It did not hurt that the red uniform made his ivory skin stand out more; the ladies seemed to really like it. Picking up ladies at the bar was now a piece of cake! He just had to bring out his flirty self, wink, and say, “Hey I’m a firefighter, but you start a fire in my heart I can’t put out!” and most girls were smitten. Most evenings off he would go there and then bring back a girl to his bachelor flat.”

    :warning: note: the challenge is not to play them, purly to create them in create a sim, any given skills is just to give you an idea of the sims traits.
    that said it is ok to play them to give them skills, if you wish.
    but all that need doing is creating them and dressing them, makeing them ready for the houshold bin.


    How to post when the challenge finished:
    1) Create a new post
    2) write who gave the challenge, and what it was (the things you put down in a note), might be smart to tag the name of the person that gave the challenge (then they can see it is done).
    3) Post pictures, and maybe a link
    4) Tell if you used any non EA content (CAP, CC or mods that changes looks/LTW/traits)
    So of we go, play… create, chat, comment on the work others do.

    so what if?

    the challenge say nothing of subtype?
    well then it is totally up to you

    this goes for ALL things, what is not mentioned, that be number of children/siblings/pets, hair color or favorits.... if it isn't mentioned it is up to the creator.

    It dosn't say how many sims live in the household?
    well again, if it isn't specified that the sim live alone or in a groupe/family of x sims, then you got a free game - inside the fram of the challenge.


    lets analyse a challenge:
    Vegetarian Klutz: Lizzy is a teen, who loves to hang out with her friends, she is very into animal welfare, so has decided to become a vegetarian. Unlike her brothers, Lizzy has no talent for sports or music; she is actually very clumsy. As many teens do, she thinks her parents are often nagging, but still she does like to do things with them – now and then.

    ok.. hmm

    first of I need a teenage female named Lizzy, but there is no last name = I decide last name
    I might need pets, but it isn't necesary though it is implied that she be an animal lover.
    She is defently vegitarian and clumsy - but NOT atletic or viritous.

    She need to have atleast 2 brothers - and they need to be either atletic or viritous (they could be both or just 1 of them each as long as atleast 1 brother is 1 of them so both is used), their age isn't told = up to me

    She need parents (plural) - but she could be a rainbow child as no gender i mentioned, and I don't know their age (with a teen daughter I say adult though) = again up to me.
    They are however proberbly caring and good parents, as she finds them anoying.... familioriented or nutering might be good, so be any other traits that make them easy to figure out when kids make truble.

    other things I do not know - and that are left up to me

    first names on every one but Lizzy
    Zodiac signs
    favorits
    if they have pets (could be likely though given Lizzy's love for animals)
    how they look.

    Magic matriarch: Old Catharina is the matriarch of a big family, she works very talented at magic and Alchemy. She is a strict teacher, when it comes to makeing sure her children and grand children will be talented in magic, but also very nurturing, encourages them to find their special talent schould that be fishing or gardning or something ells. She shy away from the moderen world and values old fasion magic and life, how will she cope with one of her grandchildrens love for computers? a thing she have banned from the house.

    I think that @CravenLestat has accepted your challenge of the matriarch and her home and issued a challenge to create a snowman (or not a snowman).

    @anettesb, Since I don't have seasons loaded right now, I'll accept one of your sample challenges for the uni twins... but it will take me a while to play them out.

    My idea of a challenge is to create a sim or sims that love animals, but that don't currently have pet. The idea is that the sim or sims might be too busy with a new job and struggling to make enough money to live on.

    Important notes.

    first of follow the how to take and give challenges, so it is clear if you took it.
    as this is purly a create a sim/housholde challenge, no need to play the sims (but your welcoem to do it)
    don't take the exsample challenges, keep the line and take the lates given challenge, if you can't do to what games you own you must wait. one exsamble would be that I have no way of takeing a sim with the bro trait as I don't have sims 4.
