So sorry. And yes, carry on. I guess childhood death was part of less advanced societies.

Wooo  I made it to the end of the No Tech Era! Score of 3- I guess I skipped the part about how scoring went. LOL
Honestly, the worst part was not having a shower. I felt like everyone was stinky alll the time. Haha

When I was testing the NO Tech Era, I have a "stone" tub from CC Prehistoric Era, it works great on the lot with the off the grid, but it doesn't clean the sim that great. LOL It worked good for the toddlers. You couldn't click on the tub and give them a bath, you have to click on the toddler, But the others I sent to the falls for showers twice a day unless it was raining. I hate having stinky sims so had to stay on top of that in my actual file. Congratulations on the score of 3.

Yeah I lived next to the waterfall so I just sent them there. I didn't know I could have a bathtub so I never had one! I definitely have one now though! haha

I didn't use it in the actual file. I had to watch the toddlers very very closely. But mine is not a "prehistoric" type story. It's more of the modern type island, but a total wipe out,, boil the water over the fire and fill the tub type thing.

Oh that makes sense! Yeah toddler stage was definitely the hardest I felt like. Mine seemed to always be unhappy. Haha

Re-reading Low-Tech, just realized I messed up, I traveled outside of my 'neighborhood', within other parts of Sulani.  Thats a fail, correct?

For Low-Tech, you can travel to a park in Sulani and also to the other non-lot areas. You could go to Granite Falls, too. So I think you're okay. For No-Tech, you can't travel anywhere.

I went to other residential lots within Sulani to search for potential mates, is that alright?

If we move out an adult child(ren) can we build the lot a bit that they are being moved onto?  Are they allowed to be put into an existing household, out of world, empty lot?

@MarianT in the Low Tech Era, can you move in a sim before they marry or is it just after they have married?

Addition to household: by birth and marriage only, so no.

This might be a dumb question- but I’m having trouble finding young adults for my low tech heir to marry. We aren’t allowed to create a sim for a spouse right? Has to be a townie we find in the world or granite falls?

Yes, it has to be someone you find in the world.

Not that I plan to start a SimTech Dynasty Challenge right away, but I'd like to ask.

Question: If we've installed the Tiny Living pack, do we disable it for the duration of this challenge or only for specific eras?

My apologies for bumping my own question, but I would like to know.

I can't see why you would have to.

Thank you for both your response and its affirmative nature, MarianT!

Hello there and welcome to the forum @marasaory
I'm not on the Challenge Team but can explain where you can find the spreadsheet for tracking your SimTech Dynasty challenge.

In the first post on the first page of the thread, go down to the seventh or so paragraph below:
Quote
Lena has prepared a spreadsheet. Which can be found here

In the sentence above, clicking the word "here" will take you to Google Sheets where you'll find LenaLJ's spreadsheet.
You can make a copy of it for your own Google Drive or, if you use Excel, you can download it to your computer.
Good luck with your challenge.  :)
