One more week of Friday Highlights, sul sul Simmers! :smile:

I have a confession to share this week: the last challenge I started has been in pause mode for too long. My mission this weekend?: getting to generation 3! :) Out of curiosity, how many of you are playing a challenge and how many a story?

Now, answering that is not exactly what you are here for, right? Lets take a look at the discussions in my list this beautiful Friday!:

And before closing for the week, one more thread for you to visit this weekend. I couldn't choose a single screenshot amongst all the great ones you are sharing in there - open the link and check them all!: 'Women behind The Sims - International Women's Day Q&A'. Oh, and don't forget to leave your questions ;)

This is it from me for now - happy Simming weekend! :wave:

    Listen ya'll... I am so proud of my current Not So Berry Challenge. I am on the 10th and "final" generation. Gen 11 is currently children but I have a plan for them: One twin is gonna master herbalism and flower arranging, the other cooking and gardening.

    For me the hardest generations are 6, 7, 8. You're so close but also you've been on a challenge for so long that it's easier to quit. The best way I've combated this was buying a new pack. But I'm running out of packs to buy! Hahaha.

    I doubt they will ever run out for me lol. I can only get them when they are on sale, and the sales always seem to happen in the middle of the month. Sucks when your on SSDI and get paid on the 3rd.

    I still play my rotational legacy. Which is something between a challenge and a story :) I am at gen 5 currently.
    Btw, congratulations on your soon to be gen 3! I hope you will achieve your New Years resolution :)

    I play a combination of the legacy challenge and the bachelor/ette challenge :) I'm currently on generation 3 with the oldest child of generation 4 being a teen. This is the funniest family I've ever played in ts4 :)

    Great picks and screenshot, this week @EA_Mai, and good luck getting to generation 3 of your challenge B)!

    I'm doing an "unofficial" legacy on my stream on Twitch. I'm FireflyGamer107 on Twitch and Twitter :)!

    I just recently discovered the Asylum challenge so I've been working on that! I've done one but unfortunately failed and just started a new one. I'm definitely looking for more challenge ideas. It's been a whole new side of sims that I didn't know was a thing! It's definitely upping my gameplay.

    Thanks for the mention.

    To answer your question, mine are about stories. I have never done a challenge.
  • FurSimsOfficialFurSimsOfficial Posts: 2,213 Member
    My own story. I don't like to play challenges and having others decide how I should play. Don't need it and it just doesn't interest me at all.
    Now, let me check out that almost last topic you listed, sounds interesting :)

    Favorite way to play is #Rosebud #RosebudChallenge based on #RagsToRiches #Rags2Riches play style.
    To mix things up I like #ChallengeMashUp as a way to combine elements of different challenges. The official challenge includes elements of three specific sets of rules. But the beauty of it is variety and can include whatever you like to play.
    Currently I am challenging myself to create a few #SimsWithLifeExperience and a couple #SuperSim households. It is great fun to see just how far I can go with a single Sim.

    Re: #SimsWithLifeExperience are played in game to earned traits and work on aspirations.

    Thank you for the mention :)

    I often start a challenge, but it usually turns out to be something totally different , as I keep getting new ideas on the way :)

    @EuphorialQueen Ooh! I like #simswithlife experience term! I guess I play a bit of that. I play with aging off and rotationally
    I love to have fully developed sims with lots of friends and family. With a little bit of rags to riches element thrown in:)

    True for me as well.

    Congrats on getting to Gen3, I can never seem to pass Gen2 :'( It's not that I get bored, it's just that I skip stories. (Still working on it though). The only legacy I actually finished was the asylum challenge. That was fun because I based it on the movie "girl interrupted". Now i'm trying to finish the legacy challenge and I'm at Gen1 :p hopefully I get pass 3.

    I'm playing a legacy, but I didn't strictly follow the starting rules for it (and I use cheats to fill needs occasionally, okay? Don't judge.) and it's mainly story-driven. So... both a story and a legacy, my gen 3 heir has just become a teen. Her younger sister is a vampire and will be living in a crypt until gen 10, BECAUSE I CAN.
    Cough. Okay.
    To all simmers out there in today's troubled world, keep safe and keep on simming.
    Great, I sound like an inspirational poster now. There's worse things.

    ^^ More challenge driven playing than I thought, thanks for answering! I was expecting something closer to a 50/50, but if I counted right:
    • 2 of you are playing driven by stories
    • 8 playing challenges
    • 2 mix

    This is me - I get new ideas and start a new save telling myself I'll get back to my current challenge at some point. And that never happens :sweat_smile:

    I didn't get to generation 3 this weekend in the end, but made good progress so I'm happy! I'll get there :)

    Count me in on a mix also! I've been playing a story/challenge with this sim, telling her story with the Kleptomaniac challenge

    Here is my Kleptomaniac sim Phoenix Rising! :)

    Well on her way

    Being a Kleptomaniac sim is hard work, don't let anyone tell you otherwise!

    :D Love how ready your Sim is for St Patricks celebration @BreeMiles ;)
    Although she needs to stay away from my Sims' belongings!
