Tri-State Super Parent Challenge
« on: July 14, 2017, 10:10:46 AM »
Tri-State Super Parent Challenge

Goal
This challenge is actually 3 mini challenges in 1 -- you'll be creating 3 different games: one for a Human, Alien, and Vampire families. Then, it's a mad dash to have the parents complete the Super Parent Aspiration as quickly as possible.

General Challenge Rules
The General Challenge Rules always apply. If applicable, exceptions will be noted below.

Specific Challenge Rules
  • This challenge requires the Get to Work expansion as well as two Game Packs: Vampires and Parenthood.
  • The Toddler Stuff pack is banned.
  • For your first game, create 2 YA Sims of the same life state (Human, Alien, or Vampire).
  • Alien abductions are okay for this challenge.
  • Adoption is banned for this challenge.
  • You may age up infants, toddlers, children, and teens whenever you want to.
  • Your first game ends when both parents have completed their Super Parent Aspiration.
  • For your second and third games just rinse and repeat and play different life state families with those parents also completing the Super Parent Aspiration.
  • This challenge ends when you have finished all three separate games with the three different sets of parents all finishing their Super Parent Aspirations.

Scoring

Here is a helpful Spreadsheet to calculate your minutes for your scores. (Thank you, Lena)

Human. Stop playing when both Human parents have achieved their Super Parent Aspirations. Look at the Simology tab and note the days to age up as well as the time of day. Plug in the info in the spreadsheet to get your total minutes.

Alien. Stop playing when both Alien parents have achieved their Super Parent Aspirations. Look at the Simology tab and note the days to age up as well as the time of day. Plug in the info in the spreadsheet to get your total minutes.

Vampire. Stop playing when both Vampire parents have achieved their Super Parent Aspirations. You'll have to keep track of how long you've been playing as your vampires won't age. Plug in the info in the spreadsheet to get your total minutes.

Total. Add up the Human, Alien, and Vampire amounts for your Total.

Ch-Ch-Changes
The team does not want to edit and make changes to the ruleset once this event goes live, but we may have to. If an exploit is brought to our attention or we discover something else we reserve the right to ask affected players to redo their effort.

Have Questions?
Please think hard before you ask in the challenge thread because it may be strategy. What you may consider an innocent question could cause another player to go — “oh, I did not think of doing that.” It’s always safer to PM everyone on the team (Metro, ratchie, LenaLJ, Trip, and MarianT) for clarifications. Thanks.

And the Winner is...
After this event has closed everyone is encouraged to discuss how they approached the event, but the winner especially is expected to do so in detail.

In reading through the scoring section under "Vampires," it says "...note the days to age up..." Aren't they immortal? I don't think the simology tab shows number of days to aging up for vampires.

You're right. We changed the rule to reflect that. You'll have to keep track of their age on your own.

For clothing and hair, yes. But we usually don't allow gameplay items from packs that release during a challenge.

Hmmmm...I am not disagreeing with you, Marian, but the problem is we did not specifically ban that Stuff pack in the rules, and I wonder if other finishers used it?

Hi Metro and Marian,

I didn't use the Toddler Stuff pack, which came out on Thursday, August 24.  I just looked at the dates that the three of us on the leader board, so far, finished, and everyone finished before the pack came out.

I just wanted to help with the date information.

Okay, good -- well, just to be clear then, I'll add that pack to the bans list in the rules. Thanks.

Loved this challenge and it helped me re-ignite my interest in the Sims. Without any practice I don't think I did to badly I could have done better. Each time I played it I was quicker. However not to disappointed in my results. This was a lot of fun and I finished in two days. Thank you very much!!!

Man, I put a lot of time into this one as far as practice goes.  There are a few places I lost some time, but overall, I am really happy with my effort here.  Although, I am sure someone will do better.  Anyway, what an awesome challenge.
