The Rules

I’ve adapted my own set of rules based on the 100 Baby Challenge rules by peaceluver. You can see them at http://babychallengerules.wordpress.com/rules/. Thanks so much to peaceluver and all others who’ve participated in the challenge before me! You’ve inspired me to give it a try myself.

My Rules:

  • The lifespan will be epic.
  • Twallan’s Story Progression will be used to keep the town vibrant.
  • All weather is disabled, and the season is summer year-round. All 4 seasons were enabled following the birth of babies 6 & 7.
  • There is a single lunar cycle to disable zombies. The regular lunar cycle was restored after the birth of babies 6 & 7.
  • Each pregnancy must be from a different father.
  • I’ve seeded the town with some eligible men to avoid having to use married sims as mates, at least in the beginning.
  • Use of on-line dating is allowed. The mother can date any man who has not yet fathered a child with her.
  • The mother cannot hold a traditional job, but can be self-employed and earn money in other ways.
  • No in-game gifts from other players are allowed.
  • Anything that can be purchased from Build/Buy mode (including store items and premium content) is fair game.
  • Lifetime Rewards are allowed (including Fertility), but must be earned by happiness points.
  • The mother can have her babies at home or at the hospital.
  • I will be selecting baby names alphabetically. When twins or triplets are born, all of their names will begin with the same letter.
  • I will roll for ALL traits, with the exception of the mother.
  • Birthday cakes can be used to age children up early, providing the following rules are met:
  • – Infants may be aged up any time, without the use of a birthday cake.
  • – Toddlers must be potty trained and taught to walk and talk.
  • – Children must go to school and get an A for at least one day.
  • – Teenagers must go to school and get an A for at least one day.
  • Teenagers and other children can help with the babies and toddlers.
  • When the children have aged up to Young Adults, they are kicked out of the house.
  • Babysitters can be hired only if the family can afford it.

  2. I decided to name the children in my baby challenge alphabetically too! Makes it easier to keep track of them I think 🙂 I’ve just found your blog and I’m looking forward to reading it!

    • Hi, and welcome to my blog! I didn’t realize when I decided to name the kids alphabetically how much it would help me keep track of them.

      I always love checking out other baby challenges and will check out yours. Thanks for reading & commenting! 🙂
