Single Father Challenge

Hey Everyone! My name is Katie and I am KatiellaGaming on YouTube.I have created this Single Father Challenge and I'm not sure if there are any challenges out there similar to this one, but I absolutely love the idea of this challenge! I hope you guys enjoy this challenge and definitely let me know how it goes for you!
The rules could possibly change to make this challenge even better!

    Sounds very interesting ^^ espcially since you have to involve the mother somehow or you wont get the kid. But I have a question. it says:

    • (Father) Completed 2 aspirations (Family Oriented & Skill/Job)

    Whats a skill/job aspiration?

    I'm gad you find it interesting and a skill/job aspiration would be an aspiration that involves a job and building a skill for example
    Athletic aspiration (Athletic Career and athletic skill)
    food aspiration (Culinary Career and cooking skill)
    and so on
    hopefully that makes sense and answers your question :)

    Don't know if this thread gets checked much, but I love this idea - it gave me a great backstory idea to run with - so I'm putting up my first LP of it this week. I'll def check out your challenge LP Katie :)

    For my play-through I believe I'll follow all the rules save the skill/job one. That limits the jobs I'll be taking with my sim to about five, as there's no aspiration to go with many of the new ones implemented. ~.~ So might I suggest the Renaissance trait if one is doing a 'side' job?

    IE: Traits for my Politician Career would be Charisma, Logic, & Fitness/Wellness.

    Just a thought! Super enjoying it so far -- Waiting to see if my offspring is a human or an alien.

    I did something similar but used a male and made him a Scientist to see how many times he would get taken by aliens and have a child and if it would be same alien each time.

    I am enjoying this challenge! I started slightly differently (I created a father and toddler), but otherwise am determined to stick to the rules. Good thing my father Travis has some kind friends to take him in. I picked a random family that my game generated, and wouldn't you know it, they even had a spare bedroom for him! His little daughter Grace was absolutely miserable with him gone to work, though.

    You may want to add to the rules that your single father does NOT have to purchase a lot to stay on-he just has to come up with funds to build a house. I've been watching you play your challenge on Katiellagaming and was wondering how you got a house so quick. I rewatched Part 6 and realized you gave him a lot to live on without paying for it. I really love watching you try to handle twins.

    Quick question: after divorcing and getting the kids into the Father's custody, do I have to build my own home on an empty lot, or can I just move to a pre-made house or apartment for the next part of the challenge? I am basically working on a Ghostbusters-themed challenge, and I just don't want to bother building a home, rather than to just move to an apartment instead, but I can always move in unfurnished and still get the Father's bank account to zero. Is that against the rules or something? I'm just not very good at building houses in general.

    Really like the idea. Not everyone remember all the single fathers there is.

    Hi everyone. I was just over at Katie's youtube channel, watching the first video for this. Does she ever stop here to answer your questions? I only ask because I already left her a couple on her channel. Just wanted to know if I should ask them here or there.

    @MsPrissy Hmmm interesting question. Per her profile April 12th was her last visit to this forum.
    Edit: Last YouTube under KatiellaGaming was a month ago,
    Maybe she is on hiatus?
    Facebook page also no recent activity.

    Hi Everyone! as you can probably tell I very rarely visit here. To be honest I always forget!, but I usually check my YouTube channel (KatiellaGaming) a lot. If you have any questions about this challenge I strongly suggest that you leave them in the comments on my YouTube videos. I will gladly answer them there. Thank you! :smile:
