Scout Troop
« on: September 10, 2018, 06:23:19 AM »
Scout Troop



Goal
Oh, for the happy days of childhood, roasting marshmallows, making sit-upons, singing campfire songs, collecting badges...You can relive those days now with your Sims. How much time you get to spend with your Scouts is up to you, because your score will be how long it takes your 3 Sims to collect all the badges.

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

Specific Challenge Rules
  • This challenge does require the Seasons expansion.
  • In CAS create one human or alien YA and 3 children.
  • No becoming a Vampire.
  • No adding to the household.
  • No moving.
  • You are allowed to use the Buydebug cheat for the sole purpose of purchasing a satellite to prevent abductions.
  • No buying potions for someone else in the household.
  • This challenge ends when all 3 of your children (or teens) have each collected all the badges.

Scoring

Time — When all 3 of your children (or teens) have each collected all the scout badges, write down the date and time. Plug the info into Lena's spreadsheet to calculate the number of minutes it took. This is your score.

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, LenaLJ, MarianT, and sdhoey) 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.

Unless a specific challenge bans it (like this event), yes, you've got the green light for buying potions. At the end of last year when the team was deciding how to make the General Rules shorter with fewer bans, that was one thing that got nixed.

Thanks Metro.  That's awesome to know for other events :)!  I'll make sure not to use them for this challenge, though.

@Metropolis Man   We can use them in this challenge, but each sim can only use potions they purchase for themselves, right?

No, you can't buy potions in this event. But, the General Rules do not ban potions for other events. And that would include passing items.

Okay, glad I asked.  Since the rule says no buying for someone else, I didn't understand that also meant they couldn't buy for themselves.  Thanks for clearing it up!

Thank you for asking that question @GlazeyLady and thank you for clarifying the rule @Metropolis Man
I'd also assumed the rule permitted buying potions for personal use, but it actually means "Reward potions are banned for this particular challenge."
Good to know before practicing. ;D

@GlazeyLady and @oshizu, Metro asked me to say that indeed you can buy potions, but the Sim who buys them has to be the one to use them. GlazeyLady's first interpretation was correct.

At 12:27 p.m. on the first Saturday, all 3 of Phyllis Nefler's children finished all the badges.
Therefore, my total minutes/my score = 8,907 minutes according to Lena's spreadsheet.  Thanks a lot for the spreadsheet, Lena, and great idea Lena and the rest of the team 8)

P.S. I know she only has 1 daughter in the movie Troop Beverly Hills, but I added 2 more daughters to fit the challenge.

 Two girl's and one boy scout kid's, completed all badges at 1st week, Wednesday, 6.16 am; final score is 4216 minutes.

This challenge finished a bit better than expected, luckily i writed a review about Seasons pack, i remember playing in details Scout's feature. :) Certainly i guess - expect better results till the end of the challenge. ive finished as early as possible, have to write a couple of reviews, including NBA Live 19 and "CHANGE: A Homeless Survival Experience", the last one is in early access on Steam and might be interesting for Sims players, going to try out soon. Happy simming all, ill try to play final - Collection's challenge, while ill follow Carl's guides on Youtube, sul sul, good luck.  8)

My 3 girl scouts earned all their badges by the first Tuesday at 13:39 for a total of 3,219 minutes.

Really loved this one, as I've only had one child in my normal gameplay use the scout career so far.  Can't wait to start the last challenge, but I've never really been very good at completing collections.

Done at the first Monday, 13:06 - which equals to 1,746 minutes.

Such a quick one! Now onto practicing for the way way harder collections challenge!

My three scouts earned all their badges by the first Tuesday at 1:02 PM for a total of 3,182 minutes. I've only dabbled a couple of time with scouting so far so this was a fun experience.
