I've been play testing this challenge and I've hit upon a problem with the parties.  The first party, house party, had the goaled events, but when I did the Incognito Party it didn't give the goals drop to do list to actually get a goal, which means that I can't get a medal for the party.  I exited my game and went back into it, but still having that same problem.  I've had this before so I'm not sure what is causing it?  I would like any suggestions as to why, or if anyone else has had this problem?

Just ignore the last post about the parties.  I researched the issue and have now discovered what I need to do to fix it and what I was doing wrong.  ;D

Posted by: crstasse« on: October 14, 2019, 11:12:51 PM I have two questions  :) With the catch 10 unique fish in 10 different fishing spots, does that mean that the pond and 3 fishing spots in Willow Creek Park, count as 4 spots or do I need to go to a new location each time?

Thanks

@crstasse I'm pretty certain it means different fishing spots not locations, so fishing at multiple spots in one location should be fine as long as they are different every time.

Another question about the parties you guys must be getting sick of these by now, lol. Are only parties from the base game allowed?

What about adoption?

Any reason not to allow adoption?  My first thought was that if you adopted two teens that would really be an advantage to the Having Teens with A's - I would consider those two adoptees to NOT be twins, but not sure if everyone would see it that way if they were adopted on the same day.  So wondering if we should say adoption is ok but must be at the baby stage.

I have to agree with @GlazeyLady here, two babies adopted on the same day would NOT be considered twins in my opinion and having come from a family with twin brothers, I feel quite strongly about this. I'm all for adoption but I think for the Have Twins Be High School A Students Bingo Card that the children in question should be twins, it adds to the difficulty after all. I hope the Team doesn't mind me chiming in on this topic but I felt I had to say something.

2. Any rule regarding alien abduction?

I've been wondering about this too, if said abduction results in twins (I've had this happen to me before), can they count towards that particular Bingo Card? Are we using the Satellite Dish for this challenge? Given that we are only allowed three Lot Traits that can never change I don't really want to waste one of them on the Private Dwelling trait and I'm fine with alien abductions and whatever the team decides on that.

I think that's everything I want to know for now (I'm sure I'll think of more), that and the whole Tombstone and Ghost situation. :)

What if you try for twins and actually have triplets? Would two of them getting the A in school count for that square, or because they are triplets and not twins they wouldn't count?

Is it okay to age up YA/Adult sims whenever we want to? The Birthday party can't be completed without blowing out the candles on a cake.

Checking with the team and will get an answer regarding this and other party questions soon.

@crstasse 
Yes, it is 10 different fishing spots, not 10 different neighborhoods.

@Rainbow Dash
Adoption is allowed, but only of babies, and two adoptions on the same day is not considered twins.
We don't have any rule against alien abduction or twins resulting from an alien pregnancy.
Reminder:  Changing or adding lot traits is not allowed.

@Deklitch
If you have triplets, two of them getting an "A" in high school would count as two twins getting an "A".

Thanks for the quick replies  :)  Just one other question.  Can you change aspirations throughout or must they complete an aspiration before changing it.

Thanks

I just remembered another question I wanted to ask (I knew there was something). One Sim can work on more than one Bingo Card at a time right? Just wanted to check on that.

Rainbow, your first comment above was deleted. No need to voluntarily give players advice. Save that for after an event.

And yes, no restrictions on Sims working on multiple squares except for the back to back parties. That's all one Sim does when they tackle that.

Added a party clarification...

**Back to back parties just means that's all your Sim would do besides eating, sleeping, etc. -- no working on other bingo squares. Also, all party types (wedding, birthday, etc) qualify, but dates are not parties.

-----------------

The tombstone square is similar to the household funds square. Once you get the 250k or have a tombstone on your lot, those squares are done. No need to maintain those things until the end.

Just one card per player, per household.

I hope the team are not too annoyed with our questions. Please know that you got lots of questions because this challenge is very interesting  ;D

"We don't have any rule against alien abduction or twins resulting from an alien pregnancy."  --> In that case, a baby or babies may be born before the sim finishes the first bingo, is this an exception then?

Do baking recipes count toward the 50 different recipes?

Can I put a restaurant in manage world at the beginning for experimental food?\

I tested it today and this challenge is so very difficult .. haha  ;)

Baby or babies would need to be released to the Homeland in this situation.

That's fine, but we've had to delete several posts recently. It's always safer to PM the team because that way you're not giving any other player ideas about how to tackle a challenge.

Sorry about this question again.  It wasn't directly answered and I'm still a bit confused about it.  Can I add lot traits to a lot that doesn't have any, say like bargain bend.  Can I add 3 lot traits knowing that once I do I can't change them or can I add nothing at all, meaning the lot then has no traits at all.

@crstasse I understand it to mean, whatever traits a lot has at the start of the game, the lot has to maintain those traits and that none can be added or removed. So if a lot doesn't have any, (like bargain bend) it has to remain not having any.

I'm not a team member, but that's the way I understand it, and I think I'm probably correct.

@crstasse
Changing or Adding Lot Traits is banned per the second bullet point under Specific Challenge Rules, so @Deklitch is correct - you can not add lot traits to a lot that doesn't already have them, and you can not change or remove lot traits on a lot that does already have them.   No changes at all can be made to lot traits.

Sorry @Metropolis Man I was just trying to help a new player out before, I didn't think of it as giving them ideas. :-[

About this Bingo Card: 500 Achievement Points

Where do I find these points? I see achievements pop up in game as I get them but I don't see any points, I can't find them and it driving me crazy!

I'm not sure what this means, I thought we couldn't move, therefore only having one household throughout the challenge and what do
you mean by 'One Player'? ???

Achievements:
It can be found in the menu, where you also save your game, cant remember what it is called exactly.

Bingo card:
Each player just prints out one card, and tries to fill that card out. If you manage to fill it out before the time ends. Mark you time, as we can use that as tiebreaker.

So only one household, which you play through the whole challenge.

Hey Rainbow Dash

So glad you brought up the achievement points.  For some crazy reason I just thought it was reward points!  I don't know how I mistook that  :o  This has just made the game sooo much harder, yet again.  I think it might be too hard for me :-\

Achievement points can be found by going to Options menu and then clicking on the Achievements tab.  It'll give you the total number of your achievements to date at the top on the right.  You can also see what achievements you have unlocked so far and what achievements you can unlock and what those achievements actually are.  There is a whole lot of them.
