More random than "random" teenagers
SOOO I guess I'm just a weirdo, but I made this "challenge" out of boredom and this is how a lot of my "main" sims were created, and I regret nothing so I'll spread this around.
So the WHOOOOLE gist of it is this. Everything MUST be random
Pick any city of your choice. I've done this challenge with all of them, because I have no life, go me.
Start evicting all the sims that live in said city and save if you wish...Only reason I did this was in case of freezing, but if you want to do this challenge again (WHICH I DON'T KNOW WHY PEOPLE WOULD, IT'S NOT REALLY A "CHALLENGE")
Place any homes or build homes on empty lots.
Please make sure storytelling is on. This lets your sims do whatever they want whenever their household is not active. This is needed for this to work.
Congrats, you've completed the first step to a painfully long set up.
You are only allowed to use the dice to create your sims (the little random buttons)
You may only hit them 5 times. Let's say you wanted a different name after hitting it once. You only have 4 more chance. This goes for every button.
The household is allowed up to ONE sim...yes one.
how exciting I know.
The only thing you may change is the pattern on their clothing/hair. Only the tip color on hair can be changed.
IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD
You are allowed TWO CHEAT THE WHOLE TIME.
Freerealestate and Resetsim
That is all.
BUUUT you can place your sim in any house you want.
It could be a freaking castle, it doesn't matter. Some little home is all they need.
This is to be selected at random, you may not look at the house beforehand.
Only one per household.
Once the sim is place, repeat this step till all the houses are filled. This is the worst step. Even I hated doing this a thousand times.
Once this is all done pick any sim you wish and start observing thing.
That is all the power you are allowed unless they start throwing a fit over a need, or they have a wish that requires going to another lot (ie, getting a job). You may not control them in anyway. They will learn skill on their own.
After 3-10 days change households by going into edit town and selecting a different home. (I just wait till after a full moon/season to rotate.)
GASP AND GAWK AT YOUR SIM'S LIFE.
BECAUSE THEY GROW ON THEIR OWN AND IT'S AWESOME.
There is also ONE last freedom granted. If they are in love you may try for a baby, get married, woohoo, and LASTLY, move in with each other unless you have a mod that does otherwise. You can change the house a little in this time. Add a baby's room or a bigger bed.
You can tweak minor things, and if you wish you can grant wishes, I usually ignore them though.
There is no real end to this challenge. It's more like watching grass grow, and I just happen to find it very relaxing.
Okay I lied, I've cried over the death of many sims thanks to this challenge.
But I find it fun none of the less. Post screenshots, stories, anything you wish here really.
I'd post pictures, but thanks to this being a new computer and my sims being on an OLDER computer, I'll have to start all over.
This is really fun if you make these guys characters or even add them to some story. Record their lives, take pictures, do whatever you want.
Hope someone other than I enjoys doing this actually.
I just want to say, I have done something like this before. I had fun with it but, it does take a while. But, I add a minor detail. And that is every day they have to leave the lot to go somewhere and you are not allowed to pick. I put each community lot as a # and I roll a dice to see where they go. I seem to like this sort of thing too.
