Mine were names from the Bible, and were alphabetical as well

Mine were from a mixture of Diana Wayne Jones Characters from Howl's Moving Castle and Hayao Miyazaki characters. They weren't in alphabetical order, which is probably why I struggled so hard to remember the names of a few of my children when writing out my score! Haha.

Lol... I just had to google a fruit name stariting with "E" and I found "Elderberry"... Not much better!

Anyways, do we have to age kids up in order? Because what I did was play with genetics, made mom orange with purple hair and dad brown with blue hair, kids turn out of many different colors! So I'm like "the brown Sim with pink hair need a RI and the one that looks gray-ish must get better grades"... Oh, I hope we didn't have to age them up and kick them out in birth order!

I don't see any reason why you would have to age them in order of birth.

Hehe no…no requirements like that. As long as you do the caking up requirements for each age group you can kick them out in whatever order you wish.

Mariko and Shin Love can proudly say that they've had ten children in six different places, and now they're done!

10 * 1000 = 10000

(6 * 0.05) +1 = 1.3

10000 * 1.3 = 13000

In my mind Shin was a quarter Italian so odd children had Japanese names and even ones had Italian names (alphabetical of course). Also I broke even with five girls and five boys, even though I left the last birth up to fate.

I love the baby boomer challenges!  This one was hard with all the restrictions!  I went with flower names.  I can't even say half of the names I found online...lol.

Tulip & Viburnum Bloomer  had 12 children (Amaranthus, Bupleurum, Chrysanthemum, Delphinum, Eremurus, Freesia, Gladiolus, Hypericum, Iris, Jasminocereus, Knapweed and Larkspur) in 6 different places.

12 x 1,000=12,000
6 x .05 = 0.30
1.00 + 0.30 = 1.30

Total ~ 12,000 x 1.30 =  15,600

I found a website that showed the flower names with pictures.  It was fun to actually see the flower with a huge different name and the Sims they became.

I read about all previous baby challenges and have always wanted to try one out, but actually playing it... phew! It's fun but hard! The location thing was a fun twist!

My couple had 8 children in 5 different locations. I don't know why they weren't all twins when I did all I thought could be done, but that and other questions I'll make when the challenge is over.

8 children: 8.000
5 locations: 1.25

Total: 10.000

I really like baby boom challenges, but wow, the kids were a *lot* of work!  I don't think they managed to get a single skillpoint between them, heh. Shows where their priorities were.

My couple managed 16 children in 8 different locations.

16 kids: 16.000
8 locations: 1.40

total: 22.400

If you don't meet the cake up requirements does that mean you fail or do you have to wait until they age up on their own?

You have to wait until their birthday comes in the game.

Several errors reduced the number of try for baby spots I could have had. That's what I get for not doing a practice run and playing with 3 new expansion packs since the last time...

14 kids and 6 try for baby spots
14000 X 1.30 = 18200

It was hard work, but I always like the baby boomer challenges.
My starting couple got 14 kids and they used 7 different locations.

14,000 x 1.35 = 18,900

Well Bobby Lee and Maclovin had made it only to 3weeks 3days 1.15pm, because my computer keeps on freezing and the game finally crashed.

5 x 1000 = 5000

3 x 0.05 = 0.15

1=.15 = 1.15

5000 x 1.15 = 5750

It's not as easy as it seems, I tell you  ::)

I am really happy with my score. 15 kiddos and 7 locations.

15000 X 1.35 = 20250

All kids' first names were simply alphabet letters — A, B, C, D, etc.  ;D

I managed to get 3 kids in and a pregnant mum before my nerves couldn't stand it any longer and quit the challenge.  ::) Ah well.

So, your score is 3000 X 1.05 (1 location) = 3150?
