Scholarship Challenge - University Requried
The purpose of this challenge is to have your teen sim qualify for every scholarship.

Here is a list of all scholarships:

A + Grades

High Cooking skills

High Mechanical Skills

High Charisma Skills

High Body Skills

High Logic Skills

High Creativity Skills

High Cleaning Skills

High Billiards Skills

High Dancing Skills

Previously Abducted by Aliens

Is a Zombie

Good Career Performance

Is and Orphan

Rules:

1.No skilling cheats or game mods allowed
2.Your teen sim can be created in CAS screen, or natural birth
3.Your teen can be in any level of their teenage life.
4.No cheats or game mods for killing parents (this should be the last scholarship you attempt)
5.Custom careers are fine
6.No cheats or game mods for turning your sim into a zombie (however you can use a cheat or game mod to cure them of being zombie, when they become a young adult)
7.No cheats or game mods for being abducted by aliens.
8.Needs game mods are allowed

The only cheat you can use is aging off, because I don't know for sure if the game lets you complete all of these depending on how you play, you might be able to, if that's all you did was focus on this challenge for your teens life. Basically it's up to your discretion whether or not you should use aging off.

Also it helps if your sim has a knowledge aspiration.

You can use the list in any order you choose, but the orphan scholarship must be the last scholarship you attempt!

Have fun!

oo it seems like no one is posting on this thread... oh well I'm gonna post my updates just cuz I like to



Ok This is William and Sandy Schulp. William is a knowledge sim and Sandy is a family sim and they will soon be giving birth to the little simmie who is gonna earn all those scholarships :P



Ok first things first time to try for a baby



And again...



...and again...



...and again... Well it took 3 times but Sandy FINALLY got pregnant



Oh yea I forgot, here's a top view of their house



Ok I just thought this was kinda creepy, I had some sims die in this house and I deleted their graves off the lot but they popped back up again...I think I might just keep them there for some added fun



YAY!!! Pregnant bump, but ick those clothes!!!



Ahh that's better... though u can't really tell she's pregnant...o well thanks to lianasims for making adorable maternity outfits.



O CRAP!!! I forgot to take pictures. oh well Sandy and William gave birth to a baby boy named Spencer. Very cute IMO. Now time to put him to work



Here's Spencer maxing out Charisma



And Creativity



Spencer had almost maxed out logic when he grew to a child...so close. Oh well. BTW I LOVED his nursery thanks to aats2.

Well that's all for now. Even though nobody's on this thread I'll update some more later.

Haha I'm already doing another update. I must say I really enjoy playing Spencer. He's a little cutie.



Anyways I made a little addition to the house. I added a little study and I updated Spencers room.



So the first thing I did was have little Spence finish maxing his logic which put him in Platinum mood. Awesome!!



Then he maxed out cooking.



Then before I knew it, it was time for Spencer's first day of school.



When he got home Sandy taught him how to do homework.



Then he maxed out mechanical.



Ahh look at all the skilling going on. Sandy and William are both trying to get to the top of the Medical Career.



I would just like to point out that this is the one challenge I have done where I don't need ghosts haunting my lot...but now these two haunt the lot EVERY NIGHT!!!



After a couple of sim days Spencer gets an A+! YAY!!!



Soon after he maxed out Cleaning. Well the only thing left is Body and children can't work out so I guess Spencer's free 'til he's a teen.



Here's Spencer as a teen. Very cute he looks just like his daddy.

Welp that's all for now I'll probably update some more tonight even if I am talking to my self.

Ok It took me a couple of days but after a much needed makeover for Spencer, I'm back.



First thing I had him do was go ahead and apply for all the scholarships he qualified for. Which was quite a few!!



After that he maxed out his body skill. Rather quickly too. It only took him one night



WWooo. I've never gotten to the top of the Medical field. William gets picked up in a Limo now. Nice.



Dang I forgot to get a picture but Spencer got to the top of the Law career track. oo well here's him getting the scholarship.



DANG! You see what I mean?? These ghosts even come out during the day. They've scared Spence quite a few times. :P



So after getting him to the top of his career I decided to have Spence spend a little time on his dancing skills...



Than I bought a pool table so he could practice his billiard skills.



He eventually got both those scholarships. Than I had him summon some aliens. Unfortunately I forgot to turn the cutscenes off so I didn't get a pic of him as he was getting abducted.



So now everything's done it's time to put Spence by himself and let him starve to death...



...but I decided starving him would take to long so I decided I would let him drown :X



Ahhh Grimmy we meet again. Grim: *Crazy broad always killin off all her sims w/ her crazy challenges.* X0



Welp here's Spencer's grave time to go have him brought back as a zombie. I've never had a zombie before. I'm excited.

Haha thanks. I don't really have anything better to do. I'm currently on maternity leave just waiting on my baby to be born so I got all the time in the world.



Anyways this isn't really an update I just wanted to introduce everyone to Aadi Singletary. The Simmie that's gonna bring Spencer back as a zombie. She goes to La Fiesta Tech. She's a Popularity sim with a secret love for Grilled Cheese. I realized I don't have ANY sims that can even get into the Paranormal career, so I'm gonna get her to join the Secret Society and use their bone phone, :P

But for the teen to become a zombie, won't the parents need a Resurrect-O-Nomitron (or whatever that thing is called), which is only available from a career that requires a Diploma. Does that mean we must play the parents first and get them a College Diploma, or is it okay to use mods to get the Resurrect-O-Nomitron? Like using inSIM to either hack their career, unlock the career reward or download a buyable Resurrect-O-Nomitron?

The Batbox (lot debugger) has an option to "Update Pre-Uni Sim" or take a sim who hasn't been in college to get them the extra Wants slots. I don't know if it gives them a diploma, though, but maybe they'll be able to get into Paranormal.

By the way I can't wait to try this challenge! I didn't know how to get pictures for it though, but skye did a really good job of it!

vhanster I didn't even realize that 'til I started playing the challenge sadly. So now I'm putting a sim through uni and then I'm gonna have her move in w/ Spencer's parents and once she gets the phone I'm just gonna have the parents resurrect him. It sucks and it's taking FOREVER but oh well. I wish I woulda thought about that before I started the challenge.

ok So time for another update. I updated Aadi's dorm a little bit. I think it's very cute thanks to tsr.



So the first thing I had her do... was head to the LFT Student Union to try to find some Secret Society members. Where she met Katharine Iforgetherlastname.



After a bit of hanging out they became friends. Yay!! 1 SS friend down 2 to go.



Than Aadi met...I wanna say his name is Aaron??



But she didn't get to make friends with him cuz shortly after she had to go to class.



GAY!!! I can't get Aaron to get over but the freakin' professor drops by whenever he feels like it. :X



Finally got Aaron to come over. that's SS friend #2



Than she met...Thomas??



But he left shortly after



YAY!!! I got lucky. Turns out 'Thomas' lives in Aadi's dorm



So Aadi and Thomas talked all night



And the next night this guy who would make GREAT legacy material came and kidnapped Aadi.



WTF???!! Are you kidding me? I wasted all this time getting her into the SS. I wish I woulda known that you actually had to KNOW the dead person...I guess that does make sense. Oo well I guess I'll just have to play Aadi all the way through Uni. this is gonna take a while...

You can have her take the phone in her inventory and then drop out of school if you want to save some time.

Unfortunately, I don't think you can go to University lots (Including secret societies) once you leave the campus grounds

Err... Even though it is faster to drop out, I don't think you'll be able to get your diploma that way- because the Diploma itself is, I THINK, some sort of a career reward for completing/graduating college. Correct me if I'm wrong though. I've never had my Sim drop out

So, slight flaw in my plan... when you become a zombie, you lose most of your skill points. I was totally done besides making the parents die, too.

You are correct on that, but if you join the secret society, pocket the bone phone, and THEN drop out... you will still be in possession of it. And then you don't need to do the paranormal career.

yup I made that SAME mistake... I gotta another question...can zombie teens not make any higher than a C+? cuz Their grade drops too once you bring them back... And it seems like no matter if he did his homework his grade stayed at a C+. Oh well it took a LONG time but I got all the scholarships except the one for having an A+. I sorta gave up on that though lol. I'll post the ending pics here in a bit.

Ok so I got Aadi all the way through college graduated w/ honors and everything. It took FOREVER but the paranormal career finally popped up. ONLY after Aadi got pregnant by Geoffrey Cormier a guy that lived in her dorm at uni. So now she has to wait 3 days until her babies born to go to work. >(



AWW I guess it's not all bad. Aadi had a little baby boy named Baback. And he is just absolutely ADORABLE.



Well it took a a few days but I FINALLY got a bone phone! Yes This challenge is almost over with. !!



Well I THOUGHT it was almost over with... I had NO idea that zombies come back with only half their skill points. HOW FREAKIN' GAY!!! Now I gotta gain ALL those points back.... Pooey. This was NOT supposed to last this long.



This has NOTHING to do with the challenge but I wanted to show everyone what a cute kid Baback grew up into..



Well it took a while but Spence eventually gained all his skill points back, and both William and Sandy eventually died of old age giving the Orphaned Assistance fund as well..



That's it I finished the challenge. YAY ME!!! It was pretty fun. I def. learned alot that I didn't know. Hehe I don't really play around with university or zombies very often.

Seriously skyeiskewl, such usage of the word gay is considered derogatory to many people. I mean, you wouldn't dare use the name of any other racial/ethnic/cultural group in place of saying 'stupid' or 'annoying,' would you?


In other news, I have discovered that it might be better to kill your sim and resurrect him/her during childhood before you waste time earning all your skill points.
