Windhavyn -- I deleted the actual names of your collections. No need for that yet. :)

I am sorry I am a bit slow and still have several questions.

-So I play 3 days each for the first two sims but get to play through the whole young adult and adult period of the last sim, right?
No, you'll play each household 3 days and then move on to the next.
Quote
-Does the 'household income' mean the total money of the household or only the 'income' during that period?
Total.
Quote
-When I separate the household, is there any restriction to the lots they can move in? Only empty ones? So each sim will start with 20k in hands, correct?
Your Sims can move anywhere they can afford. Keep in mind, though, that they won't be able to sell furniture, etc., as that would contribute to household income. And yes, each will start with 20K.
Quote

-Am I allowed to garden? The income is limited to selling collectors, so income from gardening doesn't count but to finish the collection, am I allowed to garden for that?
You're allowed to garden and to sell what you grow. Fruits and vegetables are collectibles, so they count.
Quote
-I assume that each sim cannot help the others by any means, right? No connections between them.
I'm not sure what you mean by "helping." Perhaps you should PM the team with specifics.
Quote

I am sorry for asking a lot of questions, some may seem nonsense but I want to join this challenge and play correctly by the rules. Thank you.

Questions are fine -- and it's always possible that a question you're asking is one that someone else would ask, too.

Thank you so much. Your answers make so much sense I feel real stupid -_-.

Major rule change:

The May 25th patch added 2 days to the Short lifespan for YA and Adult. You'll need to play 6 3-day sessions and 1 2-day session for each of your Sims to get 20 days for each Sim.

If you have already completed this challenge, this doesn't apply to you. If 1 or 2 of your Sims have already become Elders, you'll need to adjust accordingly.

About this change...

Before the patch, your sim aged up to elder at 8 am on the fourth Sunday (21 sim days after start) assuming you play a single sim from CAS to elder. Translated to this challenge, shouldn't we have 7 three-day turns with each sim?

As @lesleyj42 pointed out, the game does give you that extra day, so the rule was changed to:

Thanks Metro! I really enjoyed this challenge. I've kinda been missing the longer challenges, with us now playing on short, so I enjoyed the 60 days of play in this one. I always start feeling like 20 days is not much time, and I'm always amazed at how much can be accomplished in that timeframe.

Are we allowed to place restaurants?

Edited to ask: I am seeing a total of 22 different collections so I am sure people who have more expansions than I do have even more. So I am wondering if all the collections in the collections tab are fair game like the Magic beans or are some off limits?

No. Check General Rules...you cannot edit non-home lots.

If it's in the tab, then go for it, but General Rules override everything, like the rule to not edit non home lots. So, be careful and make sure you understand the General Rules.

My error. The team already allowed another player to place a restaurant, so you have a green light.

Only 4 days left for everyone to post scores -- you have until Sunday. It's a very tight race at the top of the world ranking. Are we going to have some shakeups after this event? We'll see. :) Good luck to everyone finishing up.

I have a problem, even though some collections like gardening or elements show that I have all 32/32 for gardening or 15/15 for elements they don't count as completed collecctions on the corner right. Why might this be?

Are you talking about the upper right hand corner? I've had that, too. If your Sim has gotten the notification that the collection is complete, that's good enough.
