Most BaCC's I follow have adopted the 10% rule, actually, maybe I should have too. (Lots of BaCC players here also.) 5% basically means no university for the best part of the challenge My city is in its 5th week and has gathered 230.000 only.

I do have one family of millionaires, but I don't really like the idea of a private uni with 50.000 going to the founder's bank account for each new student, so for now I have no uni.

But yeah, forking out 10% must be difficult sometimes. It is IRL :D

Right now (last time - will be continuing in a sense) a single female sim adopting the chilldren that were put up in a adoption (for storytelling - taken by a social worker). Right now she has these three children and later the next the day an alien infant will be on their way:





For the sake of storyline and to prevent the family from going apart, I had to invite nanny to take care the kids while their mom sim is off to work.

Later on, she will be working as a cloths maker and cashier.

I'll try to hook her a male to be her husband, which I prefer the guy below (before she could speak to him, who is her colleague friend, he already jumped in a love hot tub, lol):

Any good ideas to keep each household/sim more interesting? I took a wee break after finishing another cycle of rotations, and while I'm excited to go back into it, I do get the feeling that as I progress through it will start feeling like a grind. I've started semi-randomising aspirations and marriage partners (based on attraction), but once I get out of the 30 playables range and into the 100+ I'll probably want a way to get passionate for more than half a dozen households.

Basically I'm asking for anything cool to do. Maybe share a fun household idea or some good sub-challenges?

I have a sub-challenge you could try out...

I added an ISBI to my BaCC, and an OWBC, but really what's keeping it interesting for me (besides the unlocking stuff which is goal of the challenge, of course) is the owned businesses aspect. Building a lot of various businesses means many different ways to decorate and to play them, with various ambitions. I mean some are real cash machines, other don't really earn much but add a lot to the city, and to the fun. I have traditional businesses like the grocery of clothes shop, but also some less traditional like one that sells the munchie bot's food, or a museum of sorts where my founder exposes the satellite that killed her :p

You also have the weekly mini-challenges or the ROS you can roll for each household's new week.
And Voleste made this one specially for BaCC's, but I haven't tested it yet:

Math confusion yet again. All I get is from 326 to 32,6 (using calculator). Do I take the 6 out of 326 simoleans, which leaves me to having 320? Commas are confusing to me :p

You could round things up/down if you don't want to deal with commas, 326 =>330
321=>320

Or 32,6 ==> 33

(The second is what I do. My last household had a result of 5484,45 (5% of 109 689), they paid 5484.)

I guess whatever you decide, and stick to it, works.

Just started round 7 of my BACC. I'm up to 44 households (University is every 7 households and I do a retirement center for 2 or 3 days every 8 households) and 17 universities. I was so bored by the end of Round 6 (finished it yesterday), I started adding in challenges. So far, I have the 100 Days Challenge, a Random Legacy, a Queen Bee and a Trailer Park Challenge. Round 7 will probably add the Xenophilia challenge, ISBI, Asylum and possibly a 100 baby challenge, cheesecake edition. I'm sure I'll find other things to do besides the ROS rolls and Mini Challenge lists.

90% of my town is pregnant and Round 7 is going to have another major population explosion. Example: Round 5, I had 18 households. Round 6, I had 30.

That's it. A challenge means fun, if you don't have fun, it's useless, so if you need to adjust the rules to the way you like to play, do it. Personnally, I always cut before the coma, like we do IRL in France. We always pay the lowest number, we don't count the cents. So my Sims pay this way.

My advice is always choose a way to do something when you are not sure about the rules, and then, continue this way. There is no perfect way to play, and no perfect rules ! Have fun !

I was actually asking how to get 10% of 326, not how to round it. Ok, now I'm pretty sure I done it right, but for clarification: do I take out 26 from 326?


Argghh, Why I have hard time wrapping my head on percentages and stuff

Nope, it's 32 (or 33).
Simply delete the last number.
Delete the last number of 100 and you get 10. Delete the last number of 326 and you get 32. Delete the last number og 1234567 and you get 123456. It's easy.

Did you meant to say at the end 229? Not sure If that is a typo or not, but what you wrote confuses my head off. I have a feeling either you can have just corrected my mistake without acknowledging it

Oh ok. the last number (aka. after comma) is used to round the whole number? I think I got it now :D

Damn, I feel like rn in whatever grade (probably 6th) where we started to count in percentages, lol.

Yes.
10% Of 326 = 32,6. You can round at 33. Then 326 - 33 = what is left to your family.

In some countries, 2000 is written 2,000.
They use . instead of , for the decimals.
So 2,290.00 means 2290,00 = 2290. Maybe this is helping.

I had a thought that decimals are probably used differently in every region/country. The Game does follow the same comma placement (eg. 1,000).
