Roulette: A whole handful

Happy holidays, Roulette readers! As a quick reminder, who is in our household right now:
Frost – mom, young adult, white hair/eyes
Abyss – dad, young adult, black hair/eyes
Dijon – son, child, gold hair/black eyes
Topaz – daughter, child, gold hair/black eyes
Boyd – son, toddler, random blond hair/gold eyes
Diesel – son, infant, black hair

Screenshot-34Mom and dad are both dreaming of throwing a birthday party for Dijon. Not gonna happen, guys. I hate parties.

Screenshot-35Boyd is adorable.

Screenshot-36Booped your nose!!

Screenshot-41Ugh, Dijon’s growing up in the dark. At least Topaz is with him to cheer him on.

Screenshot-44I drag him inside so you can see him better.

Screenshot-46First day of winter fest means a new family picture!

Screenshot-48Officially on the rock track now. Woot!

Screenshot-49Diesel’s birthday, yay!

Screenshot-52Nope, I take that back. Instead it’s our first fire. Lame. Fear not, the guys got it put out, and I rebought the charred counter and replaced the cake (because apparently you can’t age if your candle blowing causes a calamity.)

Screenshot-55Diesel’s second attempt was smooth, and he appears to get 100% Abyss’ coloring.

Screenshot-57One trip to the potty, then a major walking session.. got the walking skill done!

Screenshot-58Dijon is outside living his best snow day life.

Screenshot-60And bam, with potty training done, it’s two toddler skills out the way.

Screenshot-62Abyss doesn’t leave for work for another hour or so, so we sneak in an attempt for baby #5 in the shower.

Screenshot-64Success!

Screenshot-65In the wee hours of the morning, Frost teaches Dijon how to drive.

Screenshot-66Diesel is being adorable at the peg box.

Screenshot-68Abyss is helping Boyd with the final book of this series…

Screenshot-69…because it’s his birthday!

Screenshot-71Sparkle on, Boyd.

Screenshot-73Here he is eyeing his cake after blowing out the candles.

Screenshot-74No time for eating it though. We’re going to the library. Abyss tries to play for tips, but there’s another pregnant woman there who goes into labor and the potential crowd is drawn away to freak out about that.

Screenshot-75Frost settles in with Diesel to read to him. I’m determined he get through all the toddler books and the library means you read insanely fast.

Screenshot-78Boyd checks out a suspicious bookshelf in the basement.

Screenshot-79We’re wrapping up the fake Dr. Seuss book series when Frost stands up and gushes. I hope this library has flood insurance. You can see the puddle in the background that’s still there from the previous laboring woman. Anyway, old woman who is overdressed for the library freaks out…but Frost does not.

Screenshot-80In fact, Frost continues not freaking out, not even moving a simulated muscle, as Diesel works his way through the first two books of the final toddler series. She’s obviously glitched, but I’m a little scared to reset her mid-birth, so I just leave it and see what will happen.

Screenshot-82Eventually the game teleports her back home, jammed into the corner of the front porch to finish birthing.

Screenshot-83And so baby #5 is born. It’s a girl named Marigold.

Screenshot-86Boyd wants you to see his block tower.

Screenshot-88Frost tucks in Diesel so he (and she) can get some sleep.

Screenshot-89Also, so far I have given each of the Roulette children a teddy bear. It gives them a moodlet boost while they sleep, but mainly it’s done with the thought that the final child from this challenge (or maybe a random #15) will become the founder for Boolprop.net’s Dear Diary challenge.

RoulettecardAnd on this note, we wrap it up for the year. Happy Holidays from the Roulettes to you, readers!

Dijon: 10 point hair, 5 point eyes
Topaz: 10 point hair, 5 point eyes
Boyd: 0 point hair, 10 point eyes
Diesel: 5 point hair, 5 point eyes
Marigold: 10 point hair, ? point eyes

Roulette: Party of 6

Hey all. 🙂 As we’re starting to gather more sims, I thought I’d do like I did with my baby boom challenge and start each chapter with a reminder of who we’ve got. 🙂

Frost – mom, young adult, white hair/eyes
Abyss – dad, young adult, black hair/eyes
Dijon – son, child, gold hair/black eyes
Topaz – daughter, toddler, gold hair/black eyes
Boyd – son, infant, random blond hair

Screenshot-18Dijon went over to a friend’s house after school. I approve, so we’ll try and build that friendship into a relationship later so that he’s not thrown to the SP wolves when he ages up and moves out. LOL

Screenshot-19Abyss played for tips at the fairground again, and actually managed some money this time around.

Screenshot-20And he was a doting daddy when he came home.

Screenshot-23How meta.. a ghost telling ghost stories.

Screenshot-25Spooky day! I let Dijon trick or treat.

Screenshot-28While baby sleeps..Screenshot-32..mom and dad flirt. LOL They’re always flirting if I haven’t got things queued up for them. At this point they both roll wishes for another baby. I like your enthusiasm guys, but we’re waiting til Boyd ages and knows some stuff.

Screenshot-36Aww.. best big brother ever! Dijon helps Topaz finish out the Dr. Seuss-esque series of toddler books.

Screenshot-38Today is Boyd’s birthday! Topaz’s too, but I’ve been doing some work on the upstairs and now only have the funds for one cake.

Screenshot-39He ages up into a cutie with gold eyes.

Screenshot-42Here’s an un-derped pic for you, as he had to go straight to bed since he was tired.

Screenshot-46After the day’s consignment funds roll in, Topaz gets a cake too.

Screenshot-48Shimmer sparkle..

Screenshot-50Ta-da! She adds Loves the Outdoors to her traits.

Screenshot-51And an un-crosseyed picture of the birthday girl.

Screenshot-53These two are still pretty similar face-wise.

Screenshot-43More flirting from these two.. but good news is Boyd’s awake and happy.

Screenshot-55Frost wastes no time teaching him to potty..

Screenshot-58..and then focuses on teaching him to walk while Abyss is off at work. Both she and Abyss are tired when he gets home, but with two toddler skills taught, they hop into the sack for some fun before crashing.

Thankfully big sister is there for the assist when Boyd gets hungry.

Screenshot-65Closeup on TopazScreenshot-67Closeup on Dijon (our place is huge so everyone runs everywhere lol)Screenshot-66Closeup on Boyd as he toddles his way to the potty.

Screenshot-70The big kids are knocking out some block skill. Check out those castles!

Screenshot-71Hard to tell from this angle, but Frost’s wardrobe change lets us know baby number four is incoming. She wraps up teaching Boyd to talk (though he seems dubious about asking for a bath) and then I send her out to collect flowers at the fairgrounds for hours. Winter is fast approaching and wildflowers have been our best source of income so far. She manages to find almost 7k in flowers before heading home when it starts hailing. Should be enough for me to finish up the upstairs rooms for the kids.

Screenshot-72With Frost busy, Abyss tries to cook. That black goo is supposed to be mac and cheese. He gives up and grabs some leftover cake.

Screenshot-73I just love toddler faces. *wub*

Screenshot-76I had Frost resting in the rocking chair out here when she felt a gush and stood up. She figures it looks like another step towards her big ole family wish.

Screenshot-75Frost: “Owww.. at least there’s only one more after this.”
Ha. You’re missing a zero.
Frost: “What? I’m wishing for five.”
Well, you’re having fourteen. God speed.

Screenshot-78And with that, we welcome baby #4.. it’s a boy!

Screenshot-79Meet Diesel. He has his daddy’s black hair, and is both Brave and a Heavy Sleeper (which means he can beat up burglars, but will sleep through their arrival anyway. LOL)

And because I finally downloaded a pose player, here’s a picture of the family so far. Awesome poses from Poses by Bee. 🙂

Dijon: 10 point hair, 5 point eyes
Topaz: 10 point hair, 5 point eyes
Boyd: 0 point hair, 10 point eyes
Diesel: 5 point hair, ? point eyes

Roulette: Well it’s not gold

Screenshot-3147Taking a peek at our little party of four on a typical morning.

Screenshot-3148Frost heads out to plant some of the most giant seeds the world has ever seen.

That night, the Spectral Ancestors take an interest in the tykes, with Hickory coming to take care of a totally unfazed Dijon, and Cerulean chatting up her daughter and the (grand)babies.

Screenshot-3154What’s this? Baby in an awkward headlock while Abyss twirls a noisemaker? That can only mean one thing.

Screenshot-3155Hallelujer, it’s Topaz’s birthday! Here’s hoping her social need no longer will decay like actually visibly while I stare at it. This infant stage has been exhausting, but she literally had to have someone holding her every sim hour or two. No joke. Is there simulated colic? Cuz she had it, if so.

Screenshot-3158At least she’s cute, even with the birthday derp still on her face. Although…Screenshot-3160…she looks awfully familiar.

Screenshot-3161Frost takes her potty and then starts on teaching her to talk while her brother heads over to the toys.
Dijon: “Her has my face.”
I know, sweetie. I know.

Abyss rolled a wish to read her to sleep as soon as she aged up. I didn’t even know you could do that with toddlers, but when she got tired I had him go to put her to bed and the option was there so that’s what we did.Screenshot-3163Oh god.Screenshot-3164Topaz: “Daddy I don’t like this.”

Me neither, sweetpea. Me neither. Thankfully she rubber banded back to her proper size and shape quickly. There was no reading, but also no lasting ill effects, so.. cool, cool.

Screenshot-3165That next morning, Frost knocked out the rest of potty training with her.Screenshot-3167

Seriously. At least in toddler form, y’all look the same. Both cute, but same. Mayyybe a different nose? Tough to tell until you age.

Screenshot-3178And speaking of aging.. it’s Dijon’s birthday!Screenshot-3179I love twinklebutt toddler birthday pics.

Screenshot-3181Birthday derp face is not near as appealing on sim children. LOL

ScreenshotHere’s a more regular version of his face. He IS a cutie still.

Screenshot-2And because it’s the first day of the fall festival, I have them all pile into a taxi and head for a brief trip out.

Screenshot-3It’s the perfect way to get them all out of the way for me to expand out the house. It’s not done but I AM out of money, and the bones are there at least. Sorry for the crooked picture. I couldn’t find my mouse (and man doing this stuff with a trackpad is a pain in the ass.)

Screenshot-4Here’s the outside, for now. It’ll get a bit more panache as we get a bit more funds.

Screenshot-5And the important part of the festival – the family picture!

Screenshot-7Now.. I was getting itchy to get started on baby #3, so I had Frost plug away until Topaz knew how to talk. That’s two of the three toddler skills done, and thus I am free to get going on the making of the next Roulette baby. (My own self-imposed rule so that I don’t find myself just swimming in a sea of babies and then having to wait forever while they grow up to move out so I can have the next wave.) Frost wanders off to find Abyss.

Screenshot-8Oh my! An alien landed here!

Screenshot-9Too bad I don’t have time to say hey. Frost found her hubby asleep in bed.. and is suggesting some alternative bed actions. *hehe*

Screenshot-10One of our ghosts started haunting a plant and rando alien gave it a scan. Wonder what her findings were? LOL

We never did get to say hi as it took THREE MORE TRIES before I heard baby chimes. But hey, priorities. Aliens gain me nothing in this challenge.

Screenshot-11On her way to the arboretum (to harvest life fruit for herself), Frost gets a baby pop. Woot!

Screenshot-12Now that we have confirmation of the next sibling, we get serious about knocking out the last of Topaz’s tot skills.. Guess who’s a walker now! 😀

Screenshot-13And guess who got promoted to band manager.

Screenshot-14Cutie pie.. she’s  got three days left to go, and only the peg box left to do. Maybe I’ll end up buying some books.

Screenshot-15Baby time!Screenshot-16Roulette baby 3 is a boy! And his hair isn’t gold!

Screenshot-17However, it’s just plain blond. Say hello to Boyd (Boyd means “blond”). I think he’s a Hydrophobic Heavy Sleeper. His random blond hair gains us NOTHING. He better have amazing eyes.

Dijon: 10 point hair, 5 point eyes
Topaz: 10 point hair, 5 point eyes
Boyd: 0 point hair, ? point eyes

Roulette: An Honest Woman

Hey all, it’s time for the next installment of the Roulettes!

Screenshot-3053Aww, Abyss is such a good daddy, doing as much caretaking of baby Dijon as he can.

Screenshot-3055Spice: “Hi sweetpea!”
Frost: “Not now daddy, you’ll break my concentration.”

Screenshot-3057The rules say no early age up. I suffered through the whole baby stage, but when I got the popup of “today is Dijon’s birthday!” I counted it as no longer early. 😛 I hate it when they age alone/in the dark. I imagine babies will be aged immediately upon seeing that popup, toddlers will be at any point during the day, and children and teens will finish that final day of school before having their cake. I won’t age them before the game declares it their birthday, but after that, I’m good with not feeling like it’s early.
Anyway.. today is Dijon’s birthday! Our tiny place does not lend itself well to cute birthday pics, so here’s a snap of daddy standing at the end of the hall to cheer his baby boy on.

Screenshot-3058Awww.. what a cutie! He gets his daddy’s eyes to pair with that gen B gold hair. 🙂

Screenshot-3060Frost immediately takes him off to the restroom to potty train him.. then terrorize him with the claw before stuffing him back on the potty. LOL

Screenshot-3061As you can see, potty training and fun CAN mix, and Dijon gets that skill soon after aging.

Screenshot-3063Then, after feeding the tot and putting him to bed, Frost and Abyss head out to the yard for some romantic time.

Screenshot-3066

Abyss, eager to live up to that “Most Likely to Get Married” prediction from graduation, asks Frost to marry him. She says yes.

They have a simple and sweet wedding right there in their yard (after I quickly buy some landscaping so the backgrounds aren’t as boring.)

Screenshot-3076I give you.. Mr. & Mrs. Roulette!

Screenshot-3079Hehe.. they’re too cute. He winked at her as the sun set on their big day. She got all swoony and thoughts of bed activities filled her head. 😉

And because I take way too many pics of my simmies weddings, here’s a whole whack more! Things got a little frisky after that blown kiss..

Screenshot-3099..they headed inside, and I’m sure you can guess where this ended up. 😉

Screenshot-3100This just cracked me up. When he saw his bride in the morning, he leapt into her arms. LOL

Screenshot-3101Abyss takes tot duty for a bit so mommy can fill need bars.

Screenshot-3105Aspen, you can show up and clean our bathroom any time you want. Seriously, it’s the second time she’s done it that I’ve noticed.

Screenshot-3106Spruce: “Ew, a ghost. Don’t like that.”
Aspen: “Ew, a ghost. Don’t like that.”
Frost: “*sigh* Dijon, I expect you to be smarter than your green-haired ancestors, mmkay?”

Screenshot-3108And Abyss gets to finish up teaching Dijon to walk!

Screenshot-3110Such a big boy.

Screenshot-3111With a smushy widdle adorable face… *pinches cheeks*

Screenshot-3113Anyway, now that her baby knows 2 out of 3 toddler skills, I’m allowing Frost to set her sights on making the next one. She finds Abyss in the restroom and they.. ahem.. make a steamy shower.

Screenshot-3116Frost tucks her little one in and heads off for a day of collecting.

Screenshot-3118We hit up the park to pick flowers, we harvest fruit and veg that we find out and about, and over at Alistair’s there are tons of insects to collect. On the final ones, Frost gets a belly pop. Baby # 2 is incoming! She loves her little man so much that she immediately wishes for another boy. I lock it. She’ll get one eventually. Then I send her home as she’s about to pass out. On her way there I check and somehow Abyss knows a baby is imminent, as he is wishing for a girl. I lock that one too. Someone will be happy this time. LOL

Screenshot-3122Mommy heads straight to bed, and daddy and little man have supper together.

Screenshot-3123Seriously. Happiest. Kid. Ever.Screenshot-3125Um.. Dijon? That’s not how you play that. It’s not gonna work that way.

Screenshot-3126Oh. I, uh, I stand corrected.

Screenshot-3131Gold ghosts (Honey & Spice) out tonight!

Screenshot-3134When Frost wakes up, she finishes knocking out the “learn to talk” gig with Dijon. Now he’s free to do whatever he wants til his birthday. 🙂

Screenshot-3137Later, it’s baby time! And the only one around to help is generation A’s Hickory.

Screenshot-3138Frost let’s out a yell and Hickory immediately nopes on outta there. LOL So much for help.

Screenshot-3139It’s a girl!

Screenshot-3140Meet Topaz Roulette. She, like her brother, has gold hair. She’s artistic and hydrophobic. And while Frost doesn’t know it yet, Topaz is the most socially needy sim baby I have ever seen.

Screenshot-3143Abyss had been wishing to make $25 in tips, so he had been out at the fairgrounds playing. These ladies were the only ones there though, and they totally ignored him in favor of “skating” (aka floating above the rink.)

Screenshot-3144He packed up and headed home. My new family of four caught some zzz’s together.

I know these aren’t countable points yet but I’m keeping track here to help me out
Dijon: 10 point hair & 5 point eyes
Topaz: 10 point hair & ? point eyes

Roulette: Let’s get it started

Screenshot-3003Here’s where we left off last time: Everyone alive and forced to gather around a couch for a no-free-will family photo for me. Once I got one where everyone was (more or less) looking, I flipped free will back on.
My sims: Yay!
And then I began the force killings.
My sims: Wait, what?

I’m not a big ghost person, so I tried to give each a different cause of death that would make them show up in their color so that I could more easily keep them straight.

Screenshot-3004Then I realized our teens were still teens and were supposed to be aged before the offing of everyone else. Enh, at least generation C is still around to watch their daughter and her boyfriend age up.

Screenshot-3009And so I am happy to present Frost. It looks like she may have mom’s face and mouth shape, dad’s nose and I think eye shape. Having had approximately one sim-hour as a teen, I don’t get to choose her trait. She seems to understand the challenge though, and ages up with Flirty locked in to add to her Artistic, Bookworm, Family-Oriented, Handy self. Did I take the totally easy route and select the “Surrounded by Family” lifetime wish for her? You bet I did. I’m going to need all those points to get her a Young Again potion at some point. (While my young adult stage is a little longer than adult stage, I have it set in my game that only young adult females can get pregnant.)

Screenshot-3015And Abyss ages up nicely as well, locking in Irresistible to add to his Brooding, Hopeless Romantic, Virtuoso, Workaholic self. He rolled his Lifetime Wish immediately and it was Rock Star.

Screenshot-3016Frost sure seems to approve of his look.. ha! Or maybe she’s shocked that her dad is punching the party spinner THROUGH her arm.

Screenshot-3017Hm, nope, looks like it’s appreciation for the fine specimen.. hehe..

Screenshot-3018Abyss rolls up a wish to visit the Arboretum, and I seize the opportunity to get them off the lot so I can build.
Spice: You’re about to croak us too, aren’t you.
Yup. It’ll be painless though, I promise. And I’ll make one of them fetch y’all later.

Screenshot-3019Oh for cute! I don’t think I’ve ever actually chosen Irresistible as a trait for anyone. I’m gonna have to. These animations are adorable.

Screenshot-3020His blown kiss didn’t quite work as intended though. LOL

Screenshot-3021But since he still wanted to go IN that arboretum, I directed them there. Frost has some ideas as she heads in..
Screenshot-3024..and those ideas get expanded upon. *hehe* Who says you need things like gainful employment before jumping right in? I plan on turning my speakers off for each try so that it’s a surprise to me whether or not it was successful.

Screenshot-3025We DO have a house though!

Screenshot-3026Just gaze upon our tiny-but-functional living box! I made it while they were out taking classes that they wished for: guitar for Abyss, painting for Frost.

Screenshot-3027And Abyss is now on his way to becoming a rock god! Okay, so he’s currently just a fan, but still.

Screenshot-3028Back at home with the both of them, Frost settles in to learn some cooking so as not to burn down the house, while Abyss practices the guitar. I guess the bathroom has the best acoustics?

Screenshot-3030He serenades his wife as she hightails it in there to toss cookies. I know it’s not something she ate since neither of them has eaten anything yet.. lol.. so YAY, baby number 1 is incoming!

Screenshot-3032Oh, and just to prove that I did have Frost pick up the graves after her painting class.. here they are, currently up in the corner of the lot.

Screenshot-3034The next morning was graduation, which I forgot about. Apparently Frost thought her baby bump couldn’t possibly fit in the voluminous graduation robe.. so she opted for a skintight sweater and leggings. She was voted “Most Artistic” and he was voted “Most Likely to Get Married.” Totally not just because he knocked his girl up before graduation.

Screenshot-3038I sent them across the street to the Summer Festival and nabbed this cute picture. Currently, the plan is to take one on the first day of each festival. Honestly, if I do this challenge again, I’ll be keeping all 8 alive until graduation happens so they can celebrate together.. and then I could get a big family picture. 🙂

Screenshot-3040While at the festival, Abyss hops in on a hot dog eating contest. He wins and they get some food that they didn’t have to cook. Hooray! While doing that, his phone rings with an opportunity to listen to a seminar by a famous musician.

Screenshot-3042Frost meanwhile is picking flowers right and left. They’re everywhere (and worth a bunch, some of them!) Suddenly, she inadvertently waters the flowers.. so I send her home and make Abyss pick the rest of the flowers until it’s time for his seminar.

Screenshot-3043At home, Frost takes matters into her own hands.. literally.

Screenshot-3044Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you Roulette baby #1: Dijon! He has the goldenish hair last found in gen C, and arrived with (I believe) Friendly and Excitable locked in. And while she was delivering their son, Abyss was attending a seminar.. which gained him another guitar skill point and got him “inspired” so he was able to skill more quickly. I like to think the birth of his child was his muse.

Screenshot-3045And because we have a bouncing baby boy now, I had Frost sell all the flowers in her pocket (which gave us a few THOUSAND.. not bad for an afternoon of picking.) We added a couple bedrooms onto the back of our now-slightly-less-tiny box and called it good. Dijon is on the floor because I was determined that someone wish for a crib before I buy him one. I WILL get those easy reward points. It took all afternoon and into the evening, but both parents did finally wish for crib purchase, so no more floor baby. LOL

That night, we had so many ghostly visitors. Aspen (shows up as lime green) was first out, and she cleaned the toilet. Come see us any time! LOL Spruce (also green, but darker) was out too, but he mainly wanted to float around through things… like the bed every time the sims laid in it, which makes for some very broken sleep. And then over breakfast we still see them coming.
Honey: “Frost! Hi, sweetie!”
Frost: “Hey, gramma Honey. Hey, great-grampa Hickory.”
These two just wanted to take leftovers out of the fridge and either leave them places or eat them. Not sure where the food goes in an ethereal being but whatever. (And yeah, Hickory is orangey, it’s the closest I could find to dark brown.)

Next time – Dijon should age up (no early aging is toughest in the baby stage ugh), and we should welcome baby #2 hopefully.

Roulette: Set-up

I thought I’d share the CAS pics of my family (oh-so-creatively given the surname Roulette), back when they were all young adult.. and before any of them met their early demise when the game started up. LOL

Screenshot-2981Screenshot-2982
Our starting generation. Anything showing up dark brown like Hickory here will net us 50 points! And he married this lovely lady, Aspen.

Screenshot-2983Screenshot-2986Spruce is the offspring of gen A. He appears to have inherited dad’s eye shape but his coloring and most other features from mom. He married Honey. This is the last generation where green coloring showed, so anything green will get us 25 points.

Screenshot-2988Screenshot-2992Spice is the child of the gen B sims. He has mom’s hair & eye color, mom’s skin tone but darker like dad, dad’s eye & face shape but mom’s nose and mouth shape. He married the beautiful blue Cerulean. Anything coloring that is gold or blue will get us 10 points (and bonus excitement from me for the blue cuz I love it.)

Screenshot-3003And here you can see the whole pack of them after I dumped them on the lot & before I started offing the older generations. I don’t do poses, so this is as good as it gets. LOL You can sneak a peek at our founding generation in the middle there – Frost (seated in between her parents) and her boyfriend Abyss (in back between the now-elderly Aspen and Hickory.) This may be the only pic I have where they’re teens. Any white or black coloring will net us 5 points. Next time: gameplay! (The idea is going to be an update for every baby born ideally.. so chapter length may vary greatly.)

Genetic Roulette

In honor of their 14th birthday, the forums at Boolprop.net have issued a fun challenge – a Genetic Roulette challenge! Visit the original post with rules (and links to others’ roulettes) over at Boolprop.net here. I’ll sum up here though (largely so that I have an easy reference if I need. Ha!) This challenge can be done in TS2, 3, or 4, but TS3 is what I’ll be playing so it’s what I’ll focus on.

Set Up:
In CAS, you’ll be setting up a multi-generational family with many sets of colors represented.. only focused on hair and eyes (and the color for those matches on the sims you create.)
“Gen A”: Create a sim couple who each have a distinct hair & eye color. For me, one will have brown hair & eyes, the other will have green hair & eyes.
“Gen B”: Using the Generation A sims, create another sim that represents one color or the other from gen A. For me, this was green again. Now create a spouse with a new hair & color. For me, this was gold.
“Gen C”: Using the Generation B sims, create another sim that represents one color or the other from gen B. For me, this was gold. Now create a spouse with yet another distinct hair & eye color. For me, this was blue.
Founding Generation: Using the Generation C sims, create one of their offspring. This sim’s hair & eye color will be changed to white. Now create them a future spouse with yet another distinct hair & eye color. For me, this was black.

Save your family, making sure to edit the relationships to reflect the generations. (I had Gen A set as elders, Gen B set as adults, Gen C set as young adults, and the Founders set to teenagers and it let me add all relationships from CAS.) Move your family of 8 into any empty lot. Now that you’re moved in, age up the teens to young adults, kill off generations A-C and keep their graves on the lot, build a starter house with whatever cash you have… and you’re ready to start play!

Rules:
The main goal is to raise 14 children to young adulthood.
– Name your children using a theme (I’m going to be doing something related color-wise to their hair color, since I can see that in burrito-hood.)
– The parents both have to aim to achieve their Lifetime wish or Aspiration.
– Only one parent can work out of the house. The other parent can help money-wise to the family income by writing, painting, gardening, etc…just no employment.
– Life extenders/supernatural life states are allowed.
– All the children must have the same two parents to be countable. Any other babies don’t count towards your 14.
– Randomly roll all of the childrens’ traits.
– Multiple births: each child does count, however you incur a point penalty. (i.e. triplets would get you 3 closer to your 14 goal, but you’d get a point penalty.)
– No money cheats, no mods aside from glitch-fixing, no boarding school, no early aging. (I like to give my sims cakes so that they don’t age up outside in the dark alone, so I’ll probably still age them but I’ll only do it when it says “Days til aging up 0”.. so like a couple sim-hours early. And honestly, 14 kids, I’m gonna forget the majority of the time anyway. ROFL)
– All tots must learn to walk, talk, and potty.
– Once a child has become a young adult, you may count their genetic color points. Then they must leave the house.

Points:
Each child born will earn two sets of points when they become a young adult: Points for their eye color and points for their hair color.

The colors are scored by which generation they appeared in last and not by the generation they started.

FOUNDER colors = (White & Black) = 5 points
GEN C colors = (Gold & Blue) = 10 points
GEN B colors = (Green) = 25 points
GEN A colors = (Brown) = 50 points
Game default colors = 0 points

A parent’s Lifetime Wish/Aspiration achieved +30

A parent’s Lifetime Wish/Aspirtion not achieved -20
The death of a child -10
The death of a parent, which ends the challenge prematurely -20
A child removed by a social worker -10 each
Multiple birth -10
