It seemed every Sim I tried flirting with was either (a)unflirty (b)married (and not the cheating kind) or (c)not interested in any way. Most were (b) though, married and truly dedicated to their relationship/spouse.  I finally got it done, but it was a toughy, and made lots of enemies on the way :D.  Jack of all Trades was a difficult one as well, though I think it was because I picked the wrong job to start out with.   ::)

Really? I usually get the flirty/snob Sims that love my compliments, haha. Maybe I just have good luck with these things because there usually aren't many Sims that won't fall for my moves. Perhaps it has something to do with the different traits we pick. Better luck next time?

Remembering I didn't get to choose the traits. Though you mentioned that so looking back at August's traits.. she was also unlucky... maybe that was the problem!   :D

Ok, I just had to share this.. We had a fire at our lot, and the fireman came and stood by and did nothing, while my sims worked to extinguish the flames. After that, the fireman just kept standing there, while I had one of my sims work on upgrading the fireplace to make it fireproof. Next my sim started on fire, and again the fireman just stood there watching! He even covered his ears while the alarm went off! I'm going to see what kind of angry interactions my sims can use. I've never used negative interactions on purpose, but he deserves it!!

Ah yes, the randomness! Is that the only time you have had problems with romance, then? Yes, unlucky sims usually aren't good with people but I've only ever had 1 unlucky sim so I'm not positive.

Lucy — good job finishing up. And don't worry about how you finished. The important thing is if you had fun and learned some new things.

I had a terrible score on my first challenge but I'm getting a little tiny bit better with each one I do (I hope) and I'm having fun trying out all these different styles of playing. Don't worry about your score, we all get better with experience. Some of the people playing these challenges have been doing it for years  :o Good luck on the Romantic Interests challenge!

After spending an awful lot of nights and weekends chipping away at this, I've finally finished with my Wishmasters!
This challenge was a marathon for sure, so all of the competitors that finish are champs in my book! :)

My quartet ended up as follows:

Evelyn: (Insane, Loser, Heavy Sleeper, Bookworm, Snob)  535,130
Tim: (Lucky, Workaholic, Good, Vegetarian, Mooch) 461,809
Glenn: (Vegetarian, Natural Cook, Schmoozer, Absent-Minded, Kleptomaniac) 447,039
Paige: (Loner, Workaholic, Heavy Sleeper, Ambitious, Absent-Minded) 524,536

That totals to: 1,968,514

My goal was to try to hit the 2 million mark, but in my last few days I wasn't able to scramble up the last few thousand points. Even so, I'm thrilled to have finished the whole 200 days, and am looking forward to some challenges with only one or two sims!

I'm also very excited for the 2 sim challenges coming up! It will be such a refreshing change from this Wishmaster challenge, huh?  :)

Absolutely! I really liked Wishmasters, but with all of the switching back and forth between four sims, it seemed to take forever to play through even one day. Especially as two of mine were Absent-Minded, I was always checking that they hadn't wandered away.

Finished this a while ago and already posted my score but just wanted to say as my first challenge I really enjoyed it and would love to do it again, maybe as just the vanilla game to help out the "glitchy" people, or have two challenges going on at the same time, the vanilla challenge and the EP challenge.   I might just have to do it again, by myself... the idea of random is awesome, and play a bit more like that now!

Thanks for the fun!

:)

I'm sorry but I'm going to have to pull out, as a power surge took out my local substation, and my house is without reliable power, as they've put us on a generator that simply cannot cope.  I was really enjoying the challenge, but even had they fixed it, I'd would've ended up at square one, and against the rules as my save got corrupted anyway.  It was going really well, and I was at week 7/8 which I was pleased with.  I'll probably retry it unofficially, when they get our power sorted!  Thank you for the advice on getting my game sorted! And now I have little time to post but I would add more!

Better luck next time Abbey. Maybe the next challenge you try will turn out so great that it will make up for this loss.

By the way, is it against the rules to type like this? I know there are a lot of rules about fonts, colors, and everything but I wasn't sure if that was one of them.

Well, you won't be banned. :) But, it's kind of hard to read. Better to just stick with the standard font. An occasional bold or italicized word for emphasis is fine too.

Am I correct to assume that we are not to have children in this challenge? I had a wish for it and they are nice size wishes but I deleted it thinking we weren't able to since we can't add to the household but want to check to make sure?

Hi YolandaBlu. Welcome to the forums. You're in and good luck. Given the fact that this event finishes in three weeks I hope you have a lot of free time ahead of you. This one's a mountain of work. :)

EDIT:

Right. The rules state no other Sims than your 4 Wishmasters can be added to the house. I think someone accidentally "picked up" a child while using the Time Machine, but I allowed a quick cheat to delete the child.

So is it still ok to use the time machine? And is there any way to avoid getting accidental children? I haven't played with the time machine at all yet but did just start one of mine on inventing. So I want to make sure that I don't do anything wrong before I do it.

Oh, yeah, you can use the Time Machine. There is the chance of returning from a trip with a child. And to my knowledge, nothing can prevent that. It's just a rare randomizer thrown into the mix. So, if it happens — no biggie. Delete the child with testingcheatsenabled true and then turn it off again.

But wait; can you have a child with a Sim outside of the Wishmaster house, and that child is not in your home? My Patrick has a baby with Justine Keaton, but the child is with his mother, her husband, and her angry family. There are still only four in the Wishmaster household. That should be fine, right? I hope I didn't screw it all up.  :(

Yep, you're good. I think Pam did this as well. Can't remember for sure. As long as the kids are elsewhere, no problem.

Okay, that's fine. I just got curious xD.

@Sushi, you know the rules. I'm not happy that Pam had to come in and edit someone while I was snoozing.
