Just to be sure, if one of the teens rolls an aspiration which requires an adult career (computer whiz, ren sim, etc) they have to keep that aspiration until they complete it, correct?
Correct.

If your offspring roll one of the two Family Aspirations, then roll again because Family Aspirations will not be able to be completed. You may also roll again if you get the Leader of the Pack aspiration.

The site linked for randomization has the option of unchecking any of the aspirations, causing them not to be included in the aspirations that can be "rolled".  Would it be better to just leave out the two Family Aspirations and the Leader of the Pack aspirations since the re-rolling causes the traits to be re-rolled as well? 

Also, the site includes the Grilled Cheese Aspiration - should that one be included when you roll for randomization given that you can't start with it?

Thanks!

I'm betting it's been specified somewhere and I missed it, but do we start the starting couple as married?

@MarianT
Would you please clarify your response?  What specifically does "Good idea!" refer to? Unchecking the two Family aspirations and the Grilled Cheese aspiration as well?

Correct. She was agreeing with GlazeyLady's suggestion that players should do just that.

I got especially confused about the Grilled Cheese aspiration because I wasn't sure whether including it or excluding it was a good idea.
Thank you very much for the clarification!

Out of curiosity, is hiring a nanny still banned? I saw it was banned because of the immortality bug, but I think that bug was fixed in the last patch.

Can we choose the traits and aspirations of our starting (parent) sims or do we need to randomize them as well?

You can choose the traits and aspirations for your parents.

Finished with 15 YA moved out and 5 YA still at home.  15 * 5 = 75; 3 * 5 = 15, giving a total  of 90.

Effective immediately —

  • No contact with Jasmine Holiday — no visits and no calling her.

So, why this weird rule? There's a temporary skill and career buff that triples the normal gain rate if you have contact with Jasmine. So, she is off limits given we already have players the have turned in scores before this buff became effective.

Maybe I'm just unlucky with the randomization, but this challenge is certainly more challenging than the one from last year  (but still a lot of fun)

Dear Challenge Team,

In my practice file, Jasmine Holiday showed up with the Welcome Wagon group, which my sims couple ignored. But I can still see Jasmine hanging out in front of the house.
Are my sims "legal" as long as they avoid initiating a conversation with Jasmine?

I am assuming if no contact is made, then you will not get the boost from her, so you should be fine.

Thank you, Metro.
Unbelievably, Jasmine has remained standing in front of the house whenever the family is home for the past six real-life hours.

One of the children got Dance Machine as a random trait. It is not in the list when you choose a trait for a child. Did I missed it or is it considered "unlucky for you/tough luck" for this challenge?
