I will definitely be posting something, although I wouldn't go so far as to call it a story  ::)

I can't wait to start this, despite having three or four other challenges going at the same time  ;D

A few questions before I begin...

1) Are there any restrictions on occults in the household?
2) Does the spouse specifically have to come from outside the household or could I use an Imaginary Friend?
3) Are there any restrictions on bringing people in and out the household?

Thanks and I can't wait to start!

1) There are are no restrictions on occults.
2)  I hadn't thought of this one but I would think an IF would be okay. It would certainly bring some interesting genetics into the family ;)
3). There are no restrictions on bringing people in and out of the household, except: the parents of the heir needs to remain in the household and will move to the new town with the heir.

Enjoy the challenge!

What if one of the parents dies before the heir is YA?

That's fine since death is a normal life event.

When that happens, I also make sure to bring the parent's urn along to the next town to keep them in the family tree. It allows future children to inherit features like eye and hair colour from their grandparents.

I've got a couple more questions:

1) Is there anything against life extending?
2) Are the started Sims (in my case Erin and Leighton) required to complete their lifetime wishes?

Just to clarify, the spouse has to be from the town the heir was born in? So in the starter town, the family and the spouse will be found from that?

Yes. Jude can correct me if I'm wrong, but if you are playing in Appaloosa Plains, the spouse needs to be found there, before you move to your second town. :)

There is no rule against extending life.

The founders should try to complete their lifetime wish if possible. If they have enough LTHR points, their LTW can be changed to match their personality better.

Another question:

Are there any restrictions on bringing another Sim into the household?

I ask because I waited a bit late for my founders to have children. They will most likely pass before the heir and/or spare are YAs. I had one of the founder's best friends move in, so she can take care of the children after the parents die. Is this ok?

Due to the new bug with the dresser I got to ask : Are we still allowed to freely plan our sims outfits?

I am considering starting this project for my next long term project.
I can live with many restrictions for projects and challenges but having the live with what my game thinks is appropriate outfits if they are in my household is beyond me.

Yes, plan your peeps' outfits all you want. This challenge isn't as "challenging" as the official ones and some rules were made to be broken. ;) I think the main challenge is getting through all of the towns...since I have all of them. :D

With the disastrous failure of my Life State Dynasty (2nd attempt), I am taking a breather and trying this one out.  I read about it today and read some of the stories and it sounds really great.

This is a great project! I can't believe I only just stumbled upon it, I'm definitely going to give it a go. I'm probably not going to post a story for it though. I do have one question - can I pick the starting town or do I have to roll for it?

I'm considering starting a town jump, mainly as some respite from the Dynasty which can end up feeling like a chore at times. This looks fun but also has a challenge and goal which will keep me interested in the file. :) I'd like to stick as close the rules as possible... So I need to ask some questions. :P

1. Any rules on Edit Town use? I'd rather not have to place everything at the start like the Dynasties because if I'm only staying there for one generation it seems a bit of a waste of time to place all the showtime lots if I don't need them etc. Also I'd like to place the MA Academy from China so I don't have to travel to get the equipment to practice with. Obviously I'll have to if I get a Sim with the LTW for the Tournament.

2. Plastic Surgery? I'm obssessed with Elf Ears and awesome Eyes.  :P I wouldn't actually change anything else of a Sim - well maybe Chris' lips but yeah. If not for the heir what about Founders and Spouses?

3. Bit confused about this bit: Which is correct?

Quote
7. You may have as many children as you wish but only the heir can continue the journey.

Quote
14. Heir siblings do not have to move to the new town but they can if you wish. It's up to you.

And clarification that traits and lifetime wants are pretty much the same as the Life States Dynasty? You roll the traits but pick from the offered LTW?

1. You can edit town however, as often as, and whenever you wish. There are no restrictions.

2. Yes, you can use Plastic Surgery.

3. People are playing the game both ways. When I first created the challenge, only the LTW was rolled. But, I'm finding it more fun to roll the traits and choose the LTW at young adult so that the game decides the sims' personality. The game can be played either way...your preference.

Enjoy the challenge!

Thanks! :) I think I'll roll the traits. I rolled my town, looks like I'm off to Union Cove. One of my founder choices isn't that practical for a Generational Game but her LTW will certainly make things interesting - do the parents have to be married?

Parents do not have to be married but should live in the same house.
