@ Annika: I think it's a great idea to do a testing file the whole way through! I've done testing files but just halfway and imagine everything will just turn out fine in the real one… well it doesn't!

I was doing a test file but you all have got to see how my teen turn out! That has got to be a bug! Can I post a picture?

I'm sorry, I hope this isn't out of place, but why is the Heat of the Moment kiss banned? My Sims sometimes do it autonomously (if they're married to each other especially). I'm just generally curious, does the kiss do something I'm unaware of? If my starting two Sims were to do this kiss autonomously would I be disqualified?

Can't answer that.  ;D

Maybe.  :o

No.  The kiss is banned for teens, we will clarify that in the rules.

Just added

Lullaby Jingle Clarification:  Sometimes the jingle doesn't play, it is up to the player to know how to determine if the mom is pregnant in that particular location in order to count the "location" score.

@Tiamet — that question should have come to the team in a PM. I will answer you in a PM.

Sorry, Metro!

No problem. Actually, ignore my response I just sent you via PM. I had a brief discussion with another team member and after we talked about it we both agreed that for a location score to be counted, the mom actually has to deliver. I'll make it clear in the rules.

Okay, here we go…the last sentence should hopefully clear things up:

Location. Give yourself a bonus for every different place where the mom becomes pregnant (i.e. bed and shower are two different places). Listen for the lullaby jingle. Note: The Try For Baby object must be different. So, if you use a bed on one lot and also use a bed on a different lot, you do not get credit for two different places because they are the same object. Also: For a Location score to count the mom must actually have a birth as a result of that Location's Try For Baby.

A new restriction…sorry it's on start day, but it came about via a PM:

  • If a social worker takes any child away it's game over. Total your score at that point and post in this thread.

Iza and Ima Frazzled are the proud parents of 11 children conceived in 5 different locations earning 13,750 points. They are amazingly chipper. I, however, am exhausted. Actually, this was a lot of fun. I never figure out the tricks, so others will do better, but not faster.

A silly mistake on my part cost me some time in the middle, then birthday cake fires pushed me over a day in the last week, was really hoping for one more pregnancy and might have got it if not for those.

Still I managed 11 kids in four weeks when I only managed 12 in 12 weeks last time so it's an improvement, very stressful and hectic challenge though.

11 kids = 11000
6 locations = 1.30

Total 11000 x 1.30 = 14300

Similar to the social worker rule, I also added this:

  • If anyone in your household dies it's game over. Total your score at that point and post in this thread.

That's interesting, Turoskel. I made an error in the middle, too, that I could have avoided had I done a practice run. I think I could have squeezed in one more pregnancy.

13 kids in 6 locations.

13000 * 1.30 = 16900

Rabbit and Bunny Rainboo had 12 children, from 6 locations -- 12,000 x 1.3 = 15,600.

Soooooo close to another pregnancy...<sigh>

12 kids in 5 locations

12000 * 1.25 = 15000

Now I think I'm going to go install my new EPs from the anniversary sale and play a very career-oriented, extremely childless, single Sim.  :P

*SIGH*

My silly computer strikes against me once more, but I'm not going back through week two again all of that crying and so forth to get through to the third and fourth weeks. So I'm going to call it quits at that point. Thankfully, I tracked the necessary statistics and am proud to report the following:-

Adam and Eve Simalon managed to get pregnant in a wonderful two (2) different locations and give birth to a magnificent four (4) children (Abraham, Boaz, Caleb and Diana).

so that is 1.1 x 4, 000 = 4, 400

I should probably have done a testing run before trying this, but chose to dive directly into it.  :) A foolish mistake cost me time, but I managed to end up with 9 offspring conceived in 4 different places, giving me a final score of 10800.
