Chapter 3.5
You can either get to level 8 or just try the career until you get bored. you can hop back and forth between the careers.

Yeah I rolled five careers with very little skill overlap (Dude would have to reach at least level 5 in 6 different skills to make it work, and level 8 in two skills) and they all branch at level 5 or 6. So to pull it off with branching I'd have to basically make a super sim, and get all the career aspiration rewards and just spend his whole life skiling, which is for sure a challenge but might be too intense for me, especially since he's gotta raise 3 kids alone. Good to know there's no hard and firm decided rule.

Yes, the rules are not firm so you can maybe complete at least 3 of the 5 careers... also you have until your heir is an elder to complete the rule.

Actually, the rules are pretty clear:

Quote:
You may jump between these careers as you wish, so long as you have spent a day at work in at least three by the time your sim becomes a full adult, and all five by the time your sim becomes an elder.


My sense of this is that this is largely meant to be hamper someone from focusing on a career, but if there is one among the five that you like, you can do a single shift in the other four and then get going. I seem to get this one a lot, and I typically play it so that my person stays in each career for a week and then settles on the last one. If you get to rolls with the same career but different branches, then I would think you just need to spend two days in the career.

I'm curious to know how you guys think Odd Jobs should be implemented into this challenge? I've had a few ideas floating around in my head.

Odd Jobs could be added to the Unconventional Careers list.

Or maybe any sim could take on an odd job, but only 1 per week or 1 every two weeks.

Anyone have any other ideas?

Ah, I just wasn't sure if when they say "career" they meant the Criminal career, or specifically the X branch of the criminal career. Because if I have to spend at least 1 day in the X branch of the criminal career, and the y branch of the Gardener career, and the Z branch of the astronaut career, etc. then I have to get to the branching level (which is usualy 4 or five) of each career I rolled and then spend a day in that branching career. But if career just means the entire career, and not the specific branch within it, than there's no issue.

In my personal notes for the challenge, I've added Potion Brewer to the unconventional careers list. Haven't thought much about Generational Goals or Miscellaneous Fun though.

Agreed! Obviously you can’t buy reward potions and sell them, but should we let potion brewers sell potions they make with the junior scientist set as kids? Can painter sims sell child drawings?

Hi, thank you for updating this challenge, I enjoy having a new set of rules to give me something to aim for in my legacies. I realise tigger89 probably made this roller originally but if there is someone who is technologically minded, I'm wondering if there is a way it can be updated http://simsroller.com/ as I notice there is quite a bit missing from it? maybe it would help as sometimes rolling the virtual dice is so time consuming. Anyway, thank you again for updating the rules etc to include all the new packs, it's much appreciated

It would be an unconventional career, like Gardner. They would brew and sell potions for income.

Can the potions get sold on the street using that table for selling stuff from City Living?

Oh man, I think potions can't be sold at all? That doesn't make sense. If you can't make money from potions, than it can't be a career.

I believe you're right, I play with srslysims Minor Alchemy Overhaul which makes the potions actually worth something, along with making the recipes more complex. 1 Apple = Full Needs is ridiculous.

Yes, I was going to add potion brewer as a Realm of Magic's job but they sell for nothing so you can't earn money selling them =(

I just finished my first generation with two children (which I really got lucky with the roll for kids.) This is my family tree so far, minus the dog: https://www.theplumtreeapp.com/publ...9740c00070aba8f

Somehow, Katelyn ended up the more well-mannered despite her evilness. Maybe, it was all the times Adeline had to straighten her out that got her to be some well-mannered to the point of setting the table for her own birthday autonomously? Meanwhile, her brother Zach is a creative bean who managed to become a bestselling author. I'm considering to make Katelyn the heir since that'd be a interesting path to see what happens next for her. But, Zach has things going for him that could help support the family besides the money tree that Adeline got with her aspiration points.

I guess I'm looking for a second opinion before I make Katelyn the heir.

Edit: Never mind; I made her the heir, and her rolls were too perfect: Couple, 5 kids, criminal (oracle), professional host, themed display, and partier.

Skyegal I was wondering if you could update the rules as well as the rolls? The link you have for the Rules goes back to Tigger's rules which are horribly outdated at this point. Mostly looking for the Aspiration list to be updated here but I really liked the tweaks Stormydayz made to the basic rules as well. I have a copy saved on my PC from July 2018 (hadn't played in a while and when I went to update to current it directed me here). If you need that copy to go off of I'd be happy to provide it.

Thanks!
