Oh no... the dreaded No Tech twins scenario!! My founding couple, Og and Ek, had one daughter at first and then twin girls after that. Thanks to the short lifespan, the oldest daughter aged up fairly soon after this screenshot and they were only all toddlers for a few Sim hours. Well, at least Ek maxed the parenting skill quickly...

I've just started rebuilding Sulani at the start of the Mid Tech Era, adding commercial and residential lots appropriate for that era.

Question: For the No Tech Era, I evicted all the premade sims from their homes and bulldozed all the lots, but many (if not all) of them are still alive.
               Once I've add Mid Tech residences, do I move these sims back into their homes?
               Or, since I've checked "Fill Empty Homes," do the Sulani premades remain homeless?

Oh gosh. Were we supposed to evict all the existing Sims? I just bulldozed their lots and didn't evict the households.

I think bulldozing the houses would have the same effect. Evicting them first just means the house is available if you want to use it. So you're okay.

Okay, another question (sorry!). If we move to a new lot at the beginning of an era, are we only allowed to choose 40x30 lots or larger, like our starting lot, or can we move anywhere? I started in Sulani and there are several really nice small lots there  :) If not, please let me know.

We don't specify any lot size for the later eras.

Can we add lots to Windenburg in the Mid-Tech Era, or it is just to the world we live in?

@MarianT
I'm not sure how we handle the scoring. Do we wait until we complete or fail the SimTech Challenge?
Or do we post every several eras?

Here's what I've completed so far:
No Tech: 2 sims
Low Tech: 0
Mid Tech: 0
Total: 2 sims

You can post every era, or wait until the end, or every few eras.

Thank you, MarianT!
I shall cross my fingers and optimistically wait until the end.

Good evening @MarianT or should I say good morning, I have finished Low Tech Era with a score of 3. Thank you and that was fun. I can't wait to start Mid-Tech tomorrow after my morning class.
