By "change," do you mean age the Teens up to Young Adults? If so, no, because of the following rule...

  • No early age-up for Teens, and no prolonging any life stage.

Does the order of adoption matter, other than the second child being the one that can age up to teen?

That is, does it have to go toddler -> child -> child 2 or can we adopt the toddler after one or both of the older kids?

You can adopt the toddler before, after, or between child adoptions - up to you.  The first child each sim adopts gets played as a child, and the second gets aged up immediately to teen.

Hello!
Are we allowed to change the children's lifestage as they become teens ?

I guess Elinoee meant turning to vampires, etc. (life state, not stage) So, the question is still open.

Glazey can have the last word when she pops in, but I'd say no because vampires have different lengths of life stages, don't they? There's the rule that you cannot extend life.

I actually answered this yesterday as life state, then realized it said life stage and deleted my response.  :)

The only life states allowed are human and alien - I don't believe there is a way in game to turn your sim into an alien, so, no, there is no changing of life states.
If there is a way to change a human into an alien without cheats, let me know.

Thanks @Nikitachi , @Metropolis Man and @GlazeyLady ,and sorry for my bad english !
Yes,I meant "are we allowed to turn the children to vampires or spellcasters".
The rules say that the 2 sims at the beginning have to be human or alien,but I saw nothing about the children.
So,ok,only humans or aliens in the family.

I got started on this last week and then went and got sick (yes, Covid).  So I hope to continue this weekend, depending on how I feel.  Since I am isolating at home for the next two weeks, I should have time.

I hope it isn't too bad and you recover quickly. Take care of yourself.

Thanks all.  I am feeling better today than yesterday so I am going to take that as a good sign.  I was able to play a little more today so I am feeling confident I will be able to get this completed by deadline.

PLEASE NOTE:

There was an error in the calculation of the Total on the spreadsheet - Apparently after I verified it, probably when I was trying to figure out how to protect cells, I inadvertently changed the total calculation to multiply by 8 instead of by the multiplier.  I have fixed it now, but if you made your own copy of it, please re-copy with the correction.

Thank you @Teresa for catching this and letting me know!

And I am done. 

Points:

Toddler = 300
Child = 400
Teen = 930
Total skill/grade points = 1,630

Multiplier = 1.00 + (296 levels X .002) = 1.592

Score = 2,594


Hope you feel better soon @Teresa

Hi everyone!

I'm back. My shoulder/neck/wrist injury is healing and my chiropractor said I'll be ok 8).  I think I've done one event this year, and I'm going to do the skilling kid one and the knitting one after that.  So, counting the finale, that should bring my total up to 5 events and I'll be in the 50 club.

This is from the example:
"In skills not maxed, they have a total of 24 levels."

I don't get it.  Is this for the 4 childhood skills or something else?

I'm figuring out all the score components now...

Thanks a lot,

withOUT the multiplier my total score is 750

Toddlers:
1 toddler maxed 3 skills and the second toddler maxed 4 skills.
Toddler points = maxed 7 toddler skills = 210 points

Children
Maxed childhood skills = 20 points each. 
4 children times 3 maxed skills each = 12 child skills = 12X20 = 240 points for skills
3 children were A students = 60

Teens
2 teens maxed 2 skills apiece = 60
4 teens maxed 3 skills apiece = 180
4 teens were A students = 60

My calculations:
3 got A’s as children = 60 points for A’s --- so 240 + 60 = 300 child points
Child points   = 300
Teen points    = 240
Total skill/grade points = 750


Could you help me with the multiplier, I stink at math?

Thanks a lot for another fun challenge, team.  8)

Did you write down non-maxed skills before the kids aged up?

Children all did 3 of the 4 skills, so non maxed skills = 1 for each child.

There are so many skills in the game for Teens depending on which packs you have --- or did you mean how many skills the teens started, but did not max?

Not just Teens, but any of the kids...were they working on any specific skills that were not maxed before they aged up? That's what the multiplier is based on.

As Toddlers:
Toddler 1 maxed 3 skills and did not max two
Toddler 2 maxed 4 skills and did not max one

As Children:
All four maxed 3 skills and did not max one

As Teens:
Teen 1 did not max 6 skills and maxed 2 skills
Teen 2 did not max 7 skills and maxed 2 skills
Teen 3 did not max 4 skills and maxed 3 skills
Teen 4 did not max 3 skills and maxed 3 skills
Teen 5 did not max 4 skills and maxed 3 skills
Teen 6 did not max 3 skills and maxed 3 skills

In my scoring post a few messages back, I did include information about their grades as children and teens --- if you need it.
