I kept waiting for them to burn the house down, but every time we had a cooking fire it would get at most 2 sims. So, for the record, final disposition of Sims:
Sane: Dead by satellite
Inmates: 3 by fire, 2 starved/scared, 2 sick/scared to death
Elspeth: a list of LTWs would be rather extensive. Perhaps you should choose a top career?

Typical LTWs are: Topping a specific career (any Aspiration), Earn $100,000 (Fortune), Max All Skills (Knowledge), Have 20 Simultaneous Lovers (Romance), have 20 (?) Best Friends (Popularity).
Contemplating making Golden Sun stuff for TS2.

stop by my personal site here. Now wouldn't that be awesome?
Once you figure out how to better keep them from cooking you really make it pretty easy on yourself. And a little bit boring. IMHO.
Well then, I´m off to create some looneys :loco:
I always check to see what's wrong if an uncontrollable character is yellow or below, just so they don't die. I think I should make them unselectable.
And relaxing on beds is a big problem for them - I checked on one guy who was really yellow, and he relaxed for so long he almost starved himself to death. XD
And also, I have pets. So my character's ltw is "Have 20 Best Pet Friends." xDD Which basically messed up the whole thing, so I'm pretending his ltw is to be the top of the Military career.
Oh well. I think I might start over or something. (: This is pretty sweet, though!

In my first build I gave them a shower/tub combo which meant they only took baths. Evil long baths.
Merrilees, good luck.
missmontignac 4 a day? Wow sounds like you had a pyromaniac. :D
Halei, I just cheat and change silly pet ltws. I will say that although looking at whats wrong isn't bad, helping them survive is just plain wrong. You should try to approach it thinking not if they are going to die but rather how quickly will they die. Don't grow attached to the other patients. :D
claudia777, some sims are just better at being on their own than others. I've had sims starve to death even with plenty of food available to them. What a shame to get a whole asylum full of sensible sims.

I never used the money cheat once. The only thing I did that was forbidden was to have 2 chairs and 1 bed when I was only down to 2 people.
It took me 38 days to fulfill my lifetime want (chief of staff). On day 15, I lost 5 people to a fire! The day after that, a girl got scared to death by the ghosts. It was interesting to see. On day 37, the 7th person just got out of the bed one night and died right there. He was in green on his picture, so I have no idea what happened to him.
Now some tips on this one... I took someone else's hint and made 5 bedrooms that were 2x3 and put one single bed in each. Since you can only have 1 sink, put it in the kitchen. Get the toilet stall to put in your bathroom with a shower - not a tub. Too many people want to take stupid baths. For optimum toilet-using, build a different room for the toilet. Have a bookcase. Just trust me on this one.
I got very lucky with my die rolling, and ended up with 2 or 3 people who were Virgos. Boy did those people love to clean. One of my female patients who had a popularity personality was in platinum throught the whole thing until she died in that big fire. (I was amazed too.)
You will need A LOT of food. Call for groceries every 2 days. You'll need to, believe me.
Thanks so much for a great challenge!! This really was tons of fun!
Edit: after reading others' posts, my people really didn't act crazy at all! I'm so jealous. I had one guy think he was a monkey for a few days (the others would point and stare and do the 'loopy' motion by the side of their heads), but then he got over it! I think I may play this one again soon. hee hee!
I forgot I had hacks which forced Sims to store/eat leftovers, one which doesn't allow them to change the TV channel (this resulted in all but one of them maxing Cooking!), and the Social Sanity Fixes from MATY. I'm sure I don't deserve the score I got (372.4), but my flawed logic considers those hacks to be more for reducing annoyances than cheating. I realize that those were the ones responsible for making my Sims behave so logically. I'll try the Asylum Challenge again without any hacks and see if things change, which they probably will, and there will be deaths.
I just realized I gave them 2 sinks :banghead:. I should be more careful about following the rules next time.
I followed all the rules otherwise, and it took 22 days to reach the controllable's LTW of Mad Scientist.

All sims have lifetime wants, even those created with just the base game installed.
Sorry about inserting a pic but more than one person seems to have been confused on this point and one of them had joined this site in 2005 and posted in 2007 that her sims had no lifetime wants, which made me want to clarify this point. Particularly if it's confusing for someone who has been playing for 2 years and has yet to discover this feature...
