Default Simself Challenge
Sorry if the layout is weird, I typed this in a word doc and copy/pasted it here

Sim Self Challenge:

If you are like any other Simmer sometimes The Sims becomes an obsession, all you can think about it Sims, all you dream about is Sims and all you talk about is Sims…sometimes you catch yourself wishing you could speak the Sim language fluently…no well okay then maybe it is just me. Anyways that is where this Challenge originates from, our obsession.
You are playing the Sims and find yourself somehow sucked into the game (cliché I know) except you’re not in the part of the game you were just playing you are somewhere else. You are in a place you really don’t know much about. It feels weird being cartoonish and just standing there waiting for someone to tell you what to do…oh wait story progression was on and so was free will so you can move about freely which is fantastic because well since you’re in the game there is no one out there to tell you what to do. You think to yourself “Well this is what I wanted so let’s try it out.” You look up and see a thought bubble with an icon of yourself in it… “This is cool” you say but it comes out “Whippna Choba Dog!” You rush your hand to your mouth and realize you speak Similish, you jump up and kick your heels together this is going to be so much fun.

The Challenge:

Okay so let’s set some ground rules:
1) No cheating, after all no one is controlling the game now to type “testingcheatsenabled true” or to use any other cheats so nope not allowed.
2) No changing your sim in CAS (cheating) once you build your Simself, if you want to change their look do it in the mirror or with a dresser.
3) Don’t die. No seriously if your Sim dies in the game it’s over…like really over

Phew now that’s out of the way let’s get into the fun part, the goals and how to get started.
First you have to make a Simself for you (obviously after all it is called the Simself Challenge). We all know you’ve done it before “nope never” okay either your lying or you are in denial anyways…You cannot use an already made Simself you have to make a new one but there are rules to that too…I know we all hate rules but meh.

1) Your Simself needs to look as close to you as possible (hair/cloths/body size/personality etc)
2) You must make your Simself wear what you are wearing right now…or rather what you are wearing when you start the challenge, I know I know not everything can be found in the Sims so just find something close and edit it the best you can.
3) Your Simself must have their hair exactly as you have yours when you start. If your hair is up their hair has to be up, if your hair is down their hair has to be down remember you were teleported into the game
4) If you are wearing your PJ’s right now, well I guess you have to play the game in your PJ’s (just make your sim change outfit when you start the game)
5) Your Simself must be your age. The only exception is if you are a child or a teenager (they cannot do half of the tasks in the game by themselves) so make Simself a YA but still make it as close to your appearance as possible.

You cannot make anyone else in the game with you, no additional sims in your Simself family, no pets because you were the only one sucked into the game.
Alright for the next part, I know I know just get to the challenge already. Okay here we go. Your challenge, should you accept it, is to escape your game but first you complete all the tasks set forward.

“But how do I get out of the game???”

That is a good question, its easy play “The Sims” on your PC in the game…I think it is only an option on the more expensive computer. If this option does not come up for you well…I will have to think about it then.

“That’s easy, not much of a challenge…I am outta here.”

Hold on hold on I said that first you have to complete some tasks didn’t I, now stick around if you want to hear more… … … You’re still here great let’s continue.

You must partake in ALL of your expansions (Stuff packs do not count). I mean every single Sims 3 expansion you have so if you have them all like I do you’re in for a long long game. So you probably are thinking “Well that’s vague.” Yes yes it is, sheesh you people are impatient. Keep reading for what your supposed to do in each expansion.

Bonus: Experience all of the versions of the future (this will take a LONG time)

Phew that took a long time but there you have it the tasks…now for the rest of the Challenge.

“Wait there is more???? This is insane.”

Yes yes it is insane but that’s okay because we are all a little crazy now and again. Now back to the main goal here and that is to get home.

“Actually I am quite enjoying my time here, the bills are small, the people are nice, and life is pretty darn simple I think I might stick around a while.”

Oh boy! Well for those who do want to return to reality (though I don’t know why anyone would want to do something crazy like that) all you need to do now is play the Sims game on your PC and poof your home. Simple right…told you it would be easy to get home. Now during all of this I hope you realize that you have to build a house and obtain funds of some sort I did not put that as a task because well it’s not the primary goal but it should be obvious right?

-Get married in your game; it isn’t cheating since it is another reality after all
-Have a child with your spouse, but they cannot come back to the real world with you so make sure the dad is fine with raising them on his own since once you return home you can never come back.
-Get to Elder stage and then use the youth potion to be restored to your youth.

I have sims 3, but I much prefer Sims 2, so I might tweak it a little bit and play it that way. Since EPs are pretty similar throughout it should work. It'll be super fun too, on either game.

Edit: So actually playing this on Sims 3, because I'm lazy and didn't feel like tweaking it for Sims 2. It's actually really fun. I just had to stick myself in Isla Paradiso because hello. Beaches.

It's the little things in life that make me happy.

And thanks to everyone out there, including here, who makes all the wonderful CC that I use. My game wouldn't be the same without it.

Been doing the challenge, and I love it! Added a few people from my life just for the fun of it. Now it's my simself and friends trying to get back!

EDIT: I am aware that I'm technically not suppose to do this, but eh, we all bend the rules a bit from time to time. :D

Sounds awesome! Can't wait to try it.
Here are some pics of my simself. I moved her into Twinbrook,
the town I never use, and got her a career as a sculptor right away.

My simself:

Partying at a local hangout with a radioactive looking beverage.

Just like in real life, I always wake up grumpy after a late night.

Never trouble trouble till trouble troubles you.

I've got a lot of expansions (I think I'm only missing Island Paradise and Showtime), so if I do this I'll probably use a random number generator to first choose how many expansions to do tasks from, and then choose which expansions to use for the tasks. Or alternately, choose 1 task from each expansion.

I'll try this challenge, sounds really fun :D
But I have a question: are those bonus tasks optional? Because I really doubt that I'm getting a child with my spouse (if I get one), specially that my Simself is gay (I am too, so yeah...) :/

Hey, I got a crazy idea! What if we adapted it to us playing the current household and we're transported into the world as our household and we get to meet them etc? ;o
