Season 2 is now airing! (Oct 20 2019)

Main show opens January 23rd 2019!

Did you watch "The Free Will Show - Hug Craze Edition"? I thought this idea was quite fun, and there will be more! It will be running as a long term show, and in this thread I'll post updates. The main show is set to air January 2019, but before that there will be 3 more editions to pick the contenders. These editions will be more interesting to watch than the "Hug craze edition", as you periodically get much closer to the contenders, the point system is more advanced, and participants are no longer related which means there might occur free will romances.

Once the 4 winners are chosen, there will be a call for simmers to create and suggest a few additional contenders to the big show, a few specific requirements will be posted here and on my blog, Simmerville's Sims, in December.

    The Free Will Show - Cook & Clean edition part 1 is up!

    4 new participants, Edvin, Samantha, Tommy and Brenda. The winner gets a spot on the big upcoming "The Free Will Show"! I hate filming with walls down, so from now on there are intervals where you get much closer to the participants, making it more interesting to spy on them :wink:

    Finally - here is part 4 of The Free Will Show - Cook & Clean Edition! This means we have the 2nd contender to the main show chosen!



    The Pets Edition will air in Novewmber, and Monster Edition in December - both a bit delayed and therefore they will both be only 2 or 3 episodes instead of 4.

    Just a quick note about the upcoming "The Free Will Show - Pets Edition". It's bit delayed, but will be up while we still see November. Then the "Monster edition" (which I really look forward to!) will air mid December.

    And finally, there will be a call for Sims for the last 2 contender spots for the main Free Will Show that will air in January. Anyone can create a Sim and upload to Gallery, but please wait until I can post requirements -it depends on who win the last editions. I'll post that call mid December, with deadline Dec 31st.

    Finally - The Free Will Show - Pets Edition is now up! This edition will be just 2 episodes, 2nd to be released within 5 days. Goal is to pick a winning sim, and the cat or dog that the winning sim has the best relation to. They will both participate on the upcoming main show, come January!

    Here's part 1 of the Pets edition:

    The Free Will Show will air in January, nearly all the participants are now found. In the final Monster edition one evil or mean sim will be chosen based on bad behavior. There are 4 participants and the one having the lowest score after 2 episodes, will move on to the main show! He or she will be the 4th participant.

    In addition there will be a call for 2 sims created by anyone. The required aspirations/traits will be posted mid December.

    Now the 1st part of the Monster Edition is available on my Youtube channel. Like always, watch the start and the ending, and feel free to jump during the main parts. 2nd part will be out within a week.

    Yay - the Free Will Show is on! Check out episode 1. I never expected so much points drama in the first episode - let's blame it on the weather! :)

    Read more about the concept under the Youtube video, or on my blog (post of Jan 22nd).

    Episode 2 of the Free Will Show is up! This time there is a voting, but you must be quick because voting closes on Feb 22nd at 11:59 PM.

    In this episode the 6 sims get into more chaos as all toilets break, Sonia gets sick, power gets shut off, Emma is starving, there's a lot of peeing selfs, and there is a voting coming up! But hey, no matter what you guys vote, not all problems can get solved; if they hire a Repairman water will be shut off tomorrow due to unpaid bills. If they pay bills, they can still not use the toilets. So maybe getting far away will be the better option?.

    Voting has closed, and they will call the Repair Service in the morning! It will of course be a good thing to get the sinks and toilets functional again, but it will probably be a tough day anyway because the water shut down upcoming due to bills not being paid.

    Next episode will be the last with 6 contenders, as the sim with less points at 6 AM (end of episode) will be kicked out! (this will repeat in episode 6)

    Because it seems quite hard to collect points, especially if everyone will pee themselves again with the water shut off, there will be a new rule starting in episode 3: There will be a voting in EVERY EPISODE, the Sim in Focus will no longer need to have all those points to pay. They will simply get a negative score if they can't pay. So, when Sim in Focus has low or negative score, he/she can choose from the full list, but might pick the options costing less. This will open for more strategies, shall the Sim in Focus help them all by taking a cost s/he can not afford?

    Next episode is scheduled to release on March 5th!

    Just to let you know that episode 3 release will be a couple days delayed. The full 24 hrs sequence has been recored, but it takes some time to get the editing, graphics and point counting correct. I'm quite excited, because even if the 3rd day is filmed, I have no idea how the score will be at end of the upcoming episode!

    And this time it will be crucial to one of the contenders, as the one with lowest score will be kicked out! From episode 4 there shall only be 5 sims in the house, and again from episode 7 there shall only be 4 sims, which will be the group for the rest of this series. I can say as much as nobody on 2 legs ran away, so 1 sim has to be kicked. Who will it be?

    Now, I'm off to do some serious editing... :)

    Oh, sorry, I forgot to post the latest addition!!!

    The Free Will Show Episode 3 was released yesterday. At end of this episode 1 of the 6 contestants will need to leave the house - the one with the lowest score, naturally. Who will it be?

    There is also a voting! You should see the last 3-4 minutes of the video, but you can also see the 3 options listed in the description below the video. Deadline for voting is 7 days after release, meaning you still got more than 6 days...

    Episode 4 is up!!! This morning Don must leave the house, and the remaining 5 contenders get a surprise regarding his negative score... He left them with no option to pay bills, so does it mean the water will be shut off? No power, no water, how nice is that in a house where everyone go by by free will? And how about the dog Emma who ran away... is she gone for good?

    As in every episode Sim in focus will pick 3 alternative actions/events, and you can vote for the one to be executed the next morning. Voting is open for 7 days from release.

    Hello, Free Will Show viewers! Episode 5 is up, and let me remind you that only one episode remains for the show's first season. After episode 6 one more contender (lowest score) will get kicked out, and when the show returns with season 2 there will be only 4 contenders + 1 dog. The show will then go on with aging on until there is only one contender left in the house. No more kicking out, it will all be up to their free will - and of course good or bad luck. For season 2 the rules will be slightly adjusted, but basically you already get the idea :)

    Now - enjoy episode 5! Will their bills finally be paid? Will there be a fire? I think so...
