I'll start mine with the exploration and colonization of the New World aka North America in the 16th and 17th centuries and move into the modern age with the game starting as a New World colony established with settlers coming from Europe to escape from the grinding poverty many of them faced in the old countries back then.I've got modfied rules I'll be following on a Wordpad document I wrote myself.My dark age stage would be the late 17th century witch trials compared to the real Salem witch trials in the late 17th century in the real history.
So I recently started out this challenge and I really like it! I've noticed thought that my Neanderthals are getting RICH from selling fish. Especially the ones with PlantSims. And I don't bother do any farming since it doesn't give as much money as fishing. Like one family has like 20.000 simoleons right now and I haven't even sold off all of it yet.
Is it the same for you guys?
I've had to do some work preparing for this and I'm combining it with an apcalypse challenge so most of my sims start with very limited funds and I need a boarding house for those and others arriving too late to settle on their own homestead.Mine starts in 1520 which is exploration and colonization of Europeans in the New World starting in the spring of 1520 as the Turkish wars were ending in Europe and they were facing a major economic collapse from the wars.
