What is it?
The 100 Baby Challenge is just as it sounds. One mother tries to have 100 children with a different father (preferably) for each pregnancy.
How did it start?
I first discovered about the Sims 3 100 Baby Challenge when I was randomly typing in "the sims 100" in to google and I came upon HarmonySim's Challenge. After reading hers, I looked at many other challenges. It seemed like a very fun idea so I've finally decided to try it.
What are the rules?
Okay, here's a HUGE confession I have to make....
I know this is bad but I don't really follow some of the rules anymore. Part of it is because I wanted a different kind of story and in order to create the story I want I don't always teach the kids everything they should learn, I don't always make the kids get A's, and most of the time I don't have story progression on or aging on. *casts eyes down* Another reason is because The Sims 3 game has changed a lot with all the store content, EPs and SPs, and all the new cheats and custom content they have created. But if you want the rules, I'll just leave them here (I guess my blog should just be called, Calista's 100 Babies).
I have based my rules off of HarmonySims who got hers from Peaceluverr. You can see them here. Here are mine:
- Lifespan is set to EPIC.
- Aging is ON.
- Story Progression is ON.
- The mother cannot marry any of the fathers during the challenge with the exception of getting married and then seperating. The mother can have a boyfriend (and he should be fine with the fact that his girlfriends is going to sleep with many, many, many other men).
- Lifetime Rewards may be purchased such as the fertility treatment.
- Father's should have unique characteristics and features such as eye and hair color. A father can participate more than once in the challenge if needed/wanted/prefered.
- The mother can have her kids at the hospital or at home, whichever works.
- Maids, repairmen, babysitters, and butlers can be hired.
- It is preferable that no cheats be used although they can if that is the way you want to play the game. Stuff has to happen though, the mother cannot just stand in one spot during a pregnancy until the baby is born. Again, stuff has to happen, pictures are the proof.
- The children do not have to grow up naturally, obviously that would take way too long. They grow up by birthday cake.
- The children should only grow up if they have an A in school but they can grow up with bad grades if that's how you want them to be.
- Toddlers should gain the two skills from the xylophone and peg box.
- Toddlers should also be potty trained, learn how to walk, or talk or all of them.
- The creator should do check-ups on children who are grown and have moved out. With my challenge, it is okay to change the active household as long as the mother isn't pregnant (unless that's part of the story, but remember, don't do nothing). Also, when going to another family in the town, aging and story progression should be turned OFF so that the challenge family doesn't do anything while the creator is away.
I will be writing it in a 1st person perspective of the mother of my challenge (right now that is Calista Smith) I'd like to thank Ashley for this idea. You can visit her challenge with Christy Quinn here. I also use brackets and parenthesis. What the difference? Well I use brackets when I want the reader to know I, Catlover800, am saying it and I use parenthesis when Calista, the mother, wants to say something that would require the parenthesis. So just remember brackets are for my thoughts and parenthesis are for Calista's thoughts.
