View Full Version : Inspiration From TV
1st Aug 2011, 3:31 AM
Whenever I get bored with just living my sims lives I look for a new situation to focus on. Like, I'm thinking of making a new neighborhood just so everyone can suffer from the "Virus" you get from using the Medical Career Reward with a low aspiration. It's said to kill your whole neighborhood, each children (I think) or older within 24 hours. IDK but it would be pretty crazy for all those neighbors to be dropping dead around you if you were a sim. With just having one family to survive and maybe try not to have them get sick at all! Or I wanted to do a show like the bachelor but that was extremely hard since I put all the girls on one lot, thus it was easy to catch him "cheating".
Those are just two examples, but have you ever done something that you saw on tv, or read? If you have a story I could sim out then I would love to know.
(Yes I could just do one of the challenges but theyre are too complex :P, I like entertaining more than challenging. lol)

A Bachelor/Bachelorette thing could be fun, putting a whole bunch of people in a house and then moving one out every few Sim days. Generally, I don't do challenges, but I did the Asylum Challenge (http://www.modthesims.info/showthread.php?t=335041), and that was crazy fun. Also, the mini challenges (http://www.modthesims.info/showthread.php?t=341154) posted on here are great fun and a way to spice up a game quickly! Also, the surprise box (http://www.modthesims.info/download.php?t=251461) is really fun, especially if you make yourself accept the outcome, no matter what it is, and not exit to the neighborhood without saving.

How about the World's Strictest Parents? Putting wayward teens into a house and having the family already there straighten them out? Move the teen Sims in and then back home after a five days of living with another family. Oh the horror... I can see my rowdy teens now, those poor parents aren't going to know what hit them. :D
Then it hits me, Survivor! Of course you'll need a mod to allow more than 8 sims to begin with, they would have to live without a lot of comforts, just some basics. There should be a way to vote a sim off and have challenges for them all to participate in. Like vote 1 sim off every 2 sim days - on the first day have a challenge, on the second day vote a sim off. The rules for voting would be changed each time. Say at the first vote it would be the sim with the least relationship stats with others, on the next vote it would be the first one to start a fight. I'm not quite sure on challenges though at this point, but maybe things like who can catch the biggest fish in a few sim hours, or maybe which sim can stay awake long enough - last to pass out wins? Also the winning sim gets immunity - so that they can't be voted off! :)

@annoainthere, All those ideas seem amazing! I want to try them right now, but my Sims computer is on the fritz :cry:

Thanks Holliday! :) I've been busy trying to figure out how to work the challenges, I'm finally finished the World's Strictest Parents one. You can find the thread here http://www.modthesims.info/showthread.php?t=452522
Now I can work on the survivor challenge! :D
