I have a quick question or few for the team.

Do our Sims have to swipe all these items or simply go find them out in the world and view them? For the Angelfish and Fossil, do we fish/dig those up ourselves? When we add the Private Dwelling lot trait at the start of the challenge, are we allowed to add any others?

I know these questions are last minute but I've been without my computer for a while.

Not a team member, but I asked them one of your questions, Rainbow Dash :)

@Rainbow Dash I asked the team the thing about swiping/finding the items ... I was told that viewing them wasn't sufficient that they needed to come into my sim's possession without purchasing them.

I haven't asked them about fishing/digging up the angel fish and fossil, as I thought that was the only way to get them.

I figured we could only add the Private Dwelling lot trait to our home.

Yes, that's fine as long as Private Dwelling is one of them.

Thanks @Metropolis Man , can you confirm we need to fish up the Angelfish and dig up the Fossil? Silly question I know, but I couldn't find those and I'm pretty sure you can't swipe fish. (I've never tried, lol).

I'm really looking forward to getting stuck into this one, I think it will much more fun than Baby Boomer, this type of challenge is my more speed. :)

I've done a couple practice runs and am feeling rested and ready!  ;D

This one looks like it's going to be a lot of fun. I don't often use the Klepto trait so it will be fun to branch out a little and try new things.

I have a question on this. With the klepto trait, are we then supposed to "steal" these items when we find them or just make a note of where we found them? I have never played with the klepto trait before. Thanks :)

Yes, you have to steal the items. All 10 items should be in your possession when you report your time.

You must choose the Private Dwelling lot trait to prevent abductions, but after doing so...

When we do this, are we allowed to buy things we need for the party or anything else we might need, or are we only meant to equip the lot traits and nothing else? Also wondering if we can add lot traits to community lots?

You can't add lot traits to community lots. You can only go into build mode to add the Private Dwelling lot trait to your home.

So, to clarify, we don't use fishing skill for the angelfish and we don't dig up the fossils? we need to find them somewhere and swipe them?

Sorry. Yes, you do need to dig up the fossil and fish for the angelfish.

Great score @reggikko !

Good grief, the t-rexes must have died out in my scoring file before they were birthed or something ... I've found each of the rare, most of the uncommon and all but two of the common fossils. I really annoyed the RNG this time. In a couple of cases I've found multiple rares. LOL

Thanks, @Deklitch

 My least favorite part of any challenge is anything that relies on chance, so I feel you on those fossils!

I'm having the same problem and also with the angelfish! In one of my practice runs the angelfish was literally the first one I caught.... in my actual scoring file I've been fishing so long I've maxed the fishing skill without using any buffs or elixirs or anything else. Ack.

Finally a t-rex arms ... it was almost anti-climatic when it happened. I was almost hoping I'd complete the collection when I got it, instead of having another common one still to get to complete the collection.

Now to workout about this gold party lol

Just out of curiosity, Can we upload our Simselves after we have grabbed the items but before we throw the party? Or do we have to upload ourselves before we start playing?

Btw, you guys are gonna love my party outfit, I would totally wear that, even now ... as for my everyday wear, I really did dress like that when I was younger, I was very much into a certain lifestyle back then, I still am, I just don't dress like that anymore toned it down a little with age, hehe. ;) My traits however don't reflect my personality at all ...  ::)

You can upload whenever you want.

I just wanted to hop in and express my gratitude to the team for making something unique and fun for the 10th anniversary. Looking back on a decade is really weird for me at the moment. Things are just so very different from when I first started the guide and got with Pam to make this forum. There's a bittersweet component to it all, from friendships that came and went and so much change. I am glad that through those years the community is still here, even if there is a lot more competition for all our attention these days.
I'm still here, (don't duck and run now, lol) and have been first with lurking and then active.  Wow.  Never thought it was ten, glorious years.  Still love you and the forum.

Did not see an answer to whether or not we can buy things for our party while putting the lot trait on our home and can we furnish said house at that time or do any remodel if needed?  (Runs off to read General Rules giggling about being able to be a klepto again.)

I'll say no to both questions. But, Marian came up with most of the rules so I defer to her if she feels differently.

Ummm, how you gonna build your house then?  Even if you go no build you still have to have a few items to survive.

Well, given the no build/buy rule building a house is not how anyone can start this event. You have to go in a different direction and I am not talking about not building, but I also cannot tell you the answer. ;)
