Default Tax-Free, Mod-Free Friendly, Career Based BaCC Ru
MY TAX-FREE, MOD-FREE FRIENDLY, CAREER BASED BACC RULES

Hi. I'm not good with introductions so I'll get straight to it.

Since I find the rule of tax-paying in BaCC a real hassle than a challenge, and I don't use mods and could only download a few cc's, I decided to remove it and changed some rules to suit my game. I read a lot of BaCC rules (including the original, and variants from Nepheris, Keoni, and Deedee to mention a few) to guide me through this revision process and my rules still follow the structure of creating a town from scratch. However, these rules are career-driven, barely requires population count and mods, doesn't require you to own a business, and most importantly, doesn't require you to pay taxes! At all! So if you're up for it, scroll down!

Warning: This challenge will take a lot of time and effort as it requires you more Sims to play to expand. The progression will be slow but it's rewarding to know you worked very hard for it.

GENERAL RULES

1. No cheating to alter game progression like earning money, gaining friends, skills, earning a degree, advancing in careers, aging, death, and etc. Cheating to decorate community lots are acceptable. That includes cheats that unlock career rewards.
2. This is very important. You must play every household in your neighborhood with equal Sim days to synch their aging.
3. Think critically on which major or career your Sim will get as these are essential for your town's expansion. (See Pursuing Careers and*Town Expansion)
4. You must strictly follow the rules of creating a household. (See Creating Households)
5. You may change the rules as you go along depending on the level of difficulty you prefer. What matters is you enjoy the game.

STARTING OUT

The challenge begins once you've chosen a clean empty neighborhood. It may be lush, desert, dirt, concrete or a custom terrain for cc users. You may only decorate your hood with trees, beaches, birds, and rocks. Only until you're connected to all subhoods will all neighborhood decorations be unlocked.

CREATING HOUSEHOLDS

Before playing, you must determine how many households you'll begin with. To do this, you roll a dice. Each number corresponds to the number of households you will make. (1-2: 2, 3-4: 3 , 5-6: 4)

Now that you have your number of households, the next thing you must determine is the number of Sims for each household. You will call your first Sims your "settlers". To do this, you must roll the dice for every household you create. (1: 1, 2: 2, 3-4: 3, 5-6: 4) Each household should be composed of only adults and elders with sibling, married, or parent-child relationship. No roommates allowed; you may only combine households ingame. There should only be one married couple and offsprings should always have a set of parents. So for example, if you rolled 6, that gives you four Sims. You may have 4 siblings, 3 siblings where one of them is married, 2 elder siblings where one is married and has an adult child, or an elder couple with two adult children. If you rolled 4, you get three Sims. You may have 3 siblings, 2 siblings where one is married, and an elder couple with one adult child. If you rolled 2, you get two Sims. They may be siblings or a couple. And if you rolled 1, he's single. If it's still unclear to you, here's a guide. (SP: Spouse, SI: Sibling, PA: Parent, CH: Child)

1 Sim: Single
2 Sims: SI-SI / SP-SP
3 Sims: SI-SI-SI / SI-SISP-SP / PA-PA-CH
4 Sims: SI-SI-SI-SI / SI-SI-SISP-SP / SI-SIPA-PA-CH / PA-PA-CH-CH

You are free to choose your Sims' skin color, hair, clothes, and the rest. However, you're not free to choose their personality and aspirations. To determine their aspirations, roll the dice once. (1: Family, 2: Fortune, 3: Knowledge, 4:l Popularity, 5: Romance, 6: Pleasure) To determine their personalities, roll the dice twice and get the sum. (2: Capricorn, 3: Aquarius, 4: Pisces, 5: Aries, 6: Taurus, 7: Gemini, 8: Cancer, 9: Virgo, 10: Libra, 11: Sagittarius) You may tweak their personality traits as long as it doesn't change the sign assigned to them.

Note that these rules should be applied everytime you create a household.

MOVING IN

Your settlers must build their house in an empty lot (beach lots are allowed) of any size. You may use build cheats! You have access to phone, water, and electricity. Unfortunately, fire and burglar alarms are locked (See Town Expansion, Police Station) and phone services are very limited. (See Unlocking Services) You have to fish or grow your own garden to restock your fridge (See Town Expasion, Grocery) and use water sprinklers to avoid fire. Also, you may only use cars after you've built your town's first community lot. This includes the junk car.

Further in the game you will unlock establishments that will reward you with either a CAS household or a residential lot. (See Town Expansion) Keep in mind that a household will need a residential lot or apartment space to move in. This includes transferring. An available residential lot may be empty or an unoccupied house. A built house cannot be bulldozed but can be renovated. Also, an empty residential lot must remain empty until a family moves in it and build their own house. You may only move your family to a new place if they have lived in their current house for a mininum of 21 Sim days.

UNLOCKING SERVICES

To unlock phone services, your household must have a phone. You may use the phone for social interactions and social services. However, some services require establishments (See Town Expansion) or people to function. The list below shows the locked services.
