The spreadsheet is now also reflecting the new rules here. Plus i added all missing skills, aspirations etc. to the lists in it.

If you already have an ongoing dynasty, the easiest is to just copy over the information in the list sheet, to your copy of the spreadsheet.

If you have any questions, or find any missing/errors in the spreadsheet, please send me a PM.

Here is the link, and the first page of this tread is ofcause also updated.

With the release of Snowy Escapes this Friday, please allow us time to fully review and test the pack for changes and updates to the challenge rules.

Thank you

The Challenge Team

I've looked through the thread and haven't seen this come up, but it occurs to me as something that maybe should be asked:  since the Servo is a playable life state, should it be allowed as one of the life states for the 45 offspring. 
Some things that occur to me as to why not:  they are created at the young adult stage and don't technically count as a child of the creator.
However, wishing well children also start older and get to skip some stages, plus the aspect of having to accomplish everything at the young adult stage without having the teen years to build up skills and such presents its own challenge.
As to the "not technically a child" aspect, the majority of the children in this dynasty set up are likely to not be biologically created, so the servo could be considered "adopted" as child, and having been literally created by one of the parents, is closer to "biological" than a wishing well child, for example.
It could, perhaps, be added with an addendum that Servos need to fulfill all the YA requirements plus some other requirement since they aren't completing the requirements for the earlier life stages.  Maybe they have to earn a degree (since they're University specific) or something like that? 
Anyway, just thought I'd throw the question out here to see what our lovely mods thought.  Thanks for your time and for creating all these awesome dynasties!

First off, I was just curious if the team has had a chance to discuss my earlier question.

And another question, the rules allow a YA to marry and move in with a townie and to be pregnant when that happens, but would I be able to either actively play one of my YA males after move in just long enough to move in a homeless wife and baby or to move in that wife and baby before move out and then move to their new lot as a group?

@Pippin,

Although I answered your question about Servos in a private message, I'm putting the answer here as well, with a little extra clarification.

No, Servos are not eligible. They start as YAs and can't develop character traits. When we originally developed this challenge, it was soon after the Parenthood pack had come out. One thing we wanted was for people to end up with a town full of "characters," Sims of different life states, but also with additional character traits. Servos weren't available at the time, but even if they had been, I think they would not have been eligible. If you look at the Sims 3 Life States challenge, SimBots aren't eligible in that challenge either.
