I'm starting a new one of these. My old one had some issues. I had it pretty well contained, but the hood probably would have imploded eventually. Anyway, my computer did so first.

Now, after far more trouble than it should have been, I have the Sims 2 up and running on my new laptop, and I have begun Treebank 2.0.

This time around I've decided not to even hook my founder up with anyone. The second generation will all be aliens.

I just noticed this post. So why did people disagree? It happens if something is too close to the bed for them to get up. Like a pet

Lost but found. And learning to fly.

This looks sooo hard and so long, but funny as hell !
I will try this soon (and maybe translate it into french to be able to look quickly at the rules I will forgot in the beginning, because that will happen)

Sorry for the double post, but, if someone is playing this challenge, it could help : as I am translating the rules into french, I noticed the Military base rules and it says :

"Now, I realize that you will have townies wandering around the base where only military personnel should be. As far as I know, this cannot be avoided."

I just found this : http://www.simbology.com/smf/index.php?topic=17.0

I am testing it on my neighborhood and it works just fine ! No townies allowed on community lots once you place the right Lady Hates Townies painting on the lot. Do that on every community lots of your military base, and it will just be perfect. And, on each round you play a household on the military base, just don't forget to click on your active Sim and ban townies. Then you can play the challenge in peace

I have a question- I am playing with these rules-
http://boolprop.prophpbb.com/topic36.html
and do you guys think it would be okay for my Sims to get the hacked coat hook to be able to fix any ugly townies' appearances 'till I get a clothing store (because my Founder is going to own a grocery store so that's not an option for that family and I don't want to have to wait to get clothes..).

I really think you play the rules you want. I personnally never use hacks even when it's allowed, just because I like difficulties, and real challenges. I only use hacks when I don't have any other choices but using it if I really want to follow the rules.
But this is a challenge, so having ugly townies at the beggining is a part of it, don't you think ?

Well, I'm playing that version because it's like the simple rules, just has a few more difficulties. It's just I can't stand the sight of most townies, especially when it's this challenge because my founder, who's a farmer, fell for La Shawn Cameron- a common townie except she wears future/gamer geek clothes. Like, really?!

I know what you mean ! maybe you can use this as an opportunity to create a unexpected story in your challenge ! Like "the two lovers that had nothing in common", it can be a good base to a strange relationship, like : your founder is all the time criticizing his partner, causing strife, but love is stronger than anything (or conversely, it continues in divorce with a good excuse to finish in stepfamilies: to found several households, it's interesting too) :D

Or maybe SimPE Sim Surgery would do the trick?

I am playing by the original rules, and while I WANT my sims to keep their ugly/inappropriate clothes until there is somewhere they can buy new ones, I think you should totally use the hacked coat.
Challenges are supposed to be fun and interesting for the player, and it's not like it's breaking a challenge rule. Like say letting the founder have a job in an unlocked career.

I wanted to try this again. I just have trouble playing a family for generations on end. I have a question..

How do you personally keep track of the town and all the rest of the details? I downloaded the rules for the complicated one, and all of that math is confusing me so I decided to stick with that boolprop forums one. I tried the spreadsheet style, I added way too many boxes to fill in for each Sim. I tried using family echo, but that can only keep track of one family at a time and I don't want to create a whole bunch of family trees, as I cannot see the whole town's tree lined up together. I was thinking of a combination between the two, but I just kept switching tabs every 5 seconds.

I did an Excel file that keep track by itself. I just have to fill some boxes when something is happening (a fire, burglary, new community lot, new baby... and so on) and it tells me everything else. I'm still testing it to be sure that it's all ok with my formulas (so far it is).

I talk about it here : http://bacc-littlelittlesimmies.tum...es-regles-de-ce

Is that what you are looking for ? I can share it in a day or two if it can be useful to someone else...

This spreadsheet does not keep track of families like who's son/daughter is this Sim or whatever like that. With the rules I play I don't need to know things like that, but I keep track of each Sim just for my pleasure in tumblr with links from a Sim to another, what is not requires to play the rules from the first post of this thread. It's just that I like doing this.

I personally use an excel spreadsheet I created. It's got everything on there which is handy. You do have to keep switching tabs and sometimes I have sims unaccounted for on the spreadsheet, by my own fault. Other than that, it's a good way to keep organised in terms of a BACC.

Is anyone else playing each rotation as a season? If so you might want simwardrobe's seasons controller to help out. I've just learned of this and wanted to let you lot know.

I'm going to start this once my Sims get out of college. I'll do some changes, though: I'm gonna start with a couple and I won't create a new hood, instead I'll make it a subhood.

That's what I'm sorta doing, PanAm. I'm getting my Prosperity challenge wrapped up first, then using those individuals (after I do a plague-roll - may the Sim-Gods help me) to start up a Build A Kingdom-International challenge.

I'm currently in the process of creating my own ruleset for this. I'm sort of taking bits and pieces from different versions and then adding in my own stuff as well. Once I'm done with it, I'll post it here just in case anyone else is interested in another variation of this. I'm really bad at sticking with challenges, so I'm trying my best to create rules that will cause me to be more likely to continue it long term.

I've started this challenge but I don't have the Open For Business Starter Pack. How else can I get community lots? Also the familyfunds cheat doesn't seem to work for me, other ones like motherlode work but not familyfunds so I can't set my family's money amount. My sim is now married and pregnant but she has no groceries!

I'd like to know some "unusual" jobs to include in my variation of the challenge - right now, I have Power Plant (the document where it is explained is attached). What others can I include?

This sounds interesting, kbjr13! I'd love to hear more of your ideas about how you plan to do this. I have started the International Challenge with the idea of seeing which country becomes the most successful and then building it up.

My couple is one semester away from graduating and starting this challenge, with some tweaks I made. But I have one question from the original ruleset: the goal is to reach 50k population, with multipliers, but the population is counted like:
- this: (living Sims + deceased Sims) X Multiplier?
- or this: living Sims X Multiplier?

i think its living sims + the deceased x multiplier
