Also, question. If my sim has a child as a teen and can get a part time job, would it be okay to use Twallan's custom Homemaker career? I feel like that would be the perfect career for someone who's on the fringe of society but still needs to make a little money.


Oh I didn't know he had a mod for that. o: That's a good idea.
And yeah, play however suits you lol. All of these people asking my permission to do things is making me feel weird. XD

Why not? ^^
Pets can dig things up and such, so that would be more for you to sell/collect.

I didn't know you could sell it for money. xD
I guess you can if you want. I usually just throw it in their inventory and forget about it, since I got bored with Uni fast, but you could have them take the aptitude test and stuff too if you wanted.


Oh and about the mail, the bill should be really low. I think of it as a "tax" for the things you sell, rather than an actual rent bill. Makes it seem a little more realistic.

I don't understand how to install Twallan's mods. I download and put them in my Sims 3 downloads folder (is that even the right place?) but it doesn't work. Can someone please help this clueless bunyip out with a step-by-step "how-to" for Twallan's mods? I'm assuming the MasterController mod is important to all this, but I don't know what to do with it/how to make it work in my game.

I really want to try out this challenge, though, so if someone can help, that'd be awesome~!

You need to install the mod framework and then put the mods in MyDocuments/Electronic Arts/The Sims 3/Mods/Packages.

I got really lucky and on day 3 I found a viewfinder in the trash. So I built a little home with the required living room, bedroom and bathroom. I'm now getting her a part time job since she's a teen.

If you want to create a teen only house, you can install NRAAS master controller, base mod and then master controller integration to create a teen only house in CAS. You may also need Mover to get them to move into a household. You can change the curfew to none in Storyprogression with story progression extra under the menu: General: options: grads/proms/curfews:
*Curfew Based On Work Days
Whether to enforce curfew by whether a sim has work or school on the next sim-day
Default: True (set this to false)

*Curfew Enforcement Days
The days of the week on which to enforce curfew
Default: <All> (set to none)


Story progression conflicts with awesome mod. FYI

I don't mean to sound patronizing and I'm certainly no expert, but if you can describe a bit more of what's actually happening with the curfew in your game, someone here can probably shed a bit more light on what might be happening.

All I can say for now is, do you have another mod that might possibly conflict with the curfew mods? You can use Delphy's Dashboard tool to help you find any conflicts with these mods.


yeah it comes up with the notice for her curfew :L i dont think so, i only have overwatch, curfew mod and wohooer in

also it says she cant get a part time job until she had a child or is a young adult. but if also says you cant have a full time job until you have a house. Does that mean if my sim has a house she cant get a full time job or does she at least have to have a part time job first?

I never did a sims challenge and this one looks pretty plain and simple for me to start with. I believe the biggest challenge is gonna be not using cheats, since I never normally play sims without them anymore xD
Currently I have so much cc that it takes my game half an hour or more to open, but I'll be sure to give this a try once I finish cleaning it up.

Once we have enough money, are we allowed to move from our original lot?

Great challenge. Thanks so much!

Hm. There's nothing in the rules specifically against it. I wouldn't do it until near the end of the teen stage, when your teen would plausibly be 18 or 19, old enough to do that sort of thing legally.

That's probably a moot point, since your teen won't, in general, have that kind of money until late in the life stage. Unless she lucks out and finds a piece of Tiberium while dumpster diving or otherwise gets a sudden windfall.

Well, I think I'll only be following the money rule on this one, since my teen will be a forever-teen just like PeterPan was a forever-child, cause I play with the age progression locked.
I'm adding mods to make it a bit harder for her to get money (such as higher bill cost and having to pay for the newspaper delivery), anyone has suggestions on other mods I could use for this purpose?

Well, it's not so much a money mod, but one thing I use that adds to the challenge, especially in the beginning, is ani's No Shopping from Fridge.

http://www.modthesims.info/d/466990

I think it lends a bit of realism, and in this case, makes it a lot more urgent that your teens get out there and get a little money together or otherwise scrounge up some food ingredients.

Thanks :D
I also considered making her pay for taxi rides but that mod is still under development it seems. Also, since I have the cigarettes mod I could make her a smoker so that she'd get addicted and kept having to buy more cigarettes, but I'm not so sure I wanna initiate her in such bad habits.

Actually if you go behind the school where the "Football" Field is you can easily plop something down there ,I have supernatural and I've put the Vault of Antiquity there, but as seeing that you ARE a runaway and to HOPEFULLY soon to be building yourself a little shack of your own I guess that'd draw attention. Sims all gossiping saying: HEY! There's some crazy chick(or guy) in the middle of the football field!

Question: Can we play without mods? My computer has file issues and I don't understand the process or what else you need to download before downloading a mod.
