I'm so sorry that I missed out on this challenge. It was such a hectic december month and I barely had any time to play sims
Not sure if I'll start it up now since I'm kind of tired of the whole christmas stuff. It was really exhausting.

A bit late, but if anyone hasn't done this yet, now would be the time.

Hi Enki! I saw you on TS forums and was going to recommend you gave it another shot, considering last year didn't end well...

I guess I should. But I'll use a teen this time just in case the aliens come around for their aniversary The aliens in my game are still very abduction-happy which is a good thing in general, but baaaaad when it happens to your selfsim.

EDIT:
So, this is my new challenge sim, Corey Blake. Kid seems really exited to do a challenge

Corey is about 15 years old. He lives with his uncle Morris, the governor of Windenburg and Windy Island, in a pseudo-historical 1640s/50s setting. Back in England Sir Oliver Simwell has just declared Snowflake Day illegal. Uncle Morris supported Simwell so far, but he really doesn't like this particular developement. Trouble is, as a government official his hands are more or less tied and this is where Corey comes into play. Can he inspire the good folks of Windenburg and bring back the Snowflake Day festival?

Yay! I can't wait to see how this challenge unfolds! So this time we're going historical, are we? Sounds cool. If you have MC Command Center and MC Occult, you can set abduction pregnancies to 0%. One time the game glitched and my male sim got abducted almost every night, so thank goodness I had that mod or the household would've been full of alien babies!

Actually I plan to set the chance to 100% after the challenge. I had it at 85% for a long time and 3 consecutive abductions resulted in no pregnancy. Alien babies do not seem to follow a probability curve, they only happen when you don't want them

So far Corey's doing okay at 13 points. He still has a full day of week one before him to score the remaining two points.
I'm currently running his backstory on my tumblr.

So, firstoff, I loath retail gameplay and last year the bakery part was my least favourite task. This year I enjoyed it tremendously. Probably because I didn't run an actual shop, but an improvised christmas faire. Sometimes it's the smallest change in perspective that helps.

For week 3 I created what-if babies for my performers from the first playthrough. In that original save Aerith is married by now and Julie has a boyfriend, but neither has children yet. So I created some in CAS for use in this challenge. And I made them a couple. Amos immediately decided for singing as his skill, but got lazy in the days to follow. Cate was exactly the opposite, she needed prompting to take up the violin for the first time, but then seemed to like it.

Week 3 replay, achievements

Followers 170 = 5 points
Parties 1 gold 3 silver = 5 points
Performer's skill points Amos singing 5 Cate violin 7 = 10 points

Overall: 20 points

The skillpoints task is rather easy and CL has tweaked the number of followers gained, so 1 pt./50 followers and 1 pt./2 skill points sounds better. That would make my score 13.
