Thank you, Bubbles! As of two rounds ago, I have officially begun Generation 2. Through much micromanaging, I have lost no one to death or the evil lady of Soshul Werkia. I'm hoping to teach myself to back off now, though, so we'll see what happens. xD;

Haha, love that: "Soshul Werkia". And yeah trying to teach myself to not micromanage has so far been the hardest part of the challenge for me as I am a huge control freak when it comes sims. In other challenges I like everything to be absolutely perfect, but of course that starts to get boring. This challenge helps me because I at least know I eventually have to kill some sims off or my population will blow up. Just not yet haha, I'll wait till the Roman era before I go killing anyone off.

I call the Social Worker, the fae, because she steals children and when they are adopted they haven't aged. It's because they have been in the kingdom of the Fae and time works different there.

I do use the triplet and quads hack, but I have lowered the odds to like five percent twins, three percent triplets, and one percent quads.

For some reason any time I try to adjust trips/quads or pregnancy odds or anything else using the grocery slider method, it only lets me do even percentages (2%, 4%, etc) otherwise I probably would put quads at 1%, trips at 3, twins at 9.

Try sliding it up with the mouse until you reach an odd number and then clicking the down arrow until you get it to the value you want. That's how I set odd values on mine.

I'll try that next time I get on (which will be a while; I'm super busy until New Year's).

Also I did try working on my own Test of Time ROS but I haven't really made it to my satisfaction so I'll probably end up scrapping it.

Please don't scrap what you have Even if you're not happy with it, I'd love to see what you've got. I plan to make a ROS file for the challenge in January, and everyone's contributions will be gladly accepted, even if it's only to spark ideas.

Okay well currently I am just adapting the ROS files found here for the Neanderthal Era (plus I have another one going for Roman, sort of). And of course, adding a few of my own ideas. The two text files that can be found in the link are really made for Hook's Randomizer but for anybody who doesn't want to use that, they also work reasonably well as stand alone files. You would just have to assign each occurrence a number, and then do a dice roll on random.org or similar.

When I get around to it I may upload my version for people to fiddle with.

I've glanced at a couple of ROS lists, and I have a question: What does the "d" mean? As in, d4 or d100?
Instructor
#2235 Old 16th Dec 2014 at 9:07 PM
The d stands dor dice. The number stands for the amount of sides. A normal dice has 6 sides, so it would be a d6. For tabletop games, a lot of other dies are used as well. Or you can use a random number generator. In that case, a d100 would mean a number between 1 - 100.

What Samantha said. d100 generates a random number from 1-100. d6 from 1-6, d12 from 1-12 etc. You can search random number generator in google to come up with lots of good sites that will do that for you.

Hi, I'm really thinking about trying this but I've got a problem, I suck at building. Do any of you know of any lots that I can download?
Instructor
#2239 Old 18th Dec 2014 at 6:02 PM
Do you want period appropriate buildings?

For the Neanderthal era, there's these possibilities:

http://www.modthesims.info/download.php?t=290655
http://www.modthesims.info/download.php?t=289037

And the Simstone collection here on MTS also has some lots.

For every time period, there's something to find that you can download. No need to build.

Okay, so the Dark Ages description implies that the people who are rich need to lose at least some of their money. Any suggestions for how much I should make them lose? Maybe more for the upper classes and less for the lower ones?

Hmmm, I'd probably do something like take away fifty percent of what they have, or maybe do different percentages for the different classes. Like twenty-five for the Emperor's family, forty for the Patricians, seventy for the Plebeians, and ninety percent for the Slaves? Hard to say, though, since I'm still stuck with my Neanderthals. o_o'

On another note, my ToT Sims had their first death. One of the founders died of old age; he'd aged up badly, so he died before the others. The family is not handling it well; everyone's sobbing between every task, even the granddaughter who just became a child and I didn't think they had a very high relationship yet. And I could've sworn I saw his wife go to sleep in her own bed later that night, but the next time I looked, she had gotten up for some reason and was crawling into bed with her granddaughter. Lonely, I guess? D= Poor things, but they'd better get used to it. I think his wife is about to get a visit from Grimmie too, and I'm still trying to make myself back off from god-moding so more than just old age deaths occur. =/

In my newest update, Obligated to Love You, the Knight Clan has it though. Who said babies were a blessing? Also, there's some adult drame, but not where you'd expect it. Full story, including pictures, can be found on my blogs for the respective neighborhoods. Links are in my signature. Comments are very welcome

Wow, that does sound tough! xD Do you have something that expands the time your babies or toddlers stay in that stage, or something that shortens pregnancy length? Because I know that after going into labor five times, my Sims would have at least two kids instead of five toddlers/babies. xD

Well, I speed up my pregnancies to 1 day, for starters. Then, I've got the triplets and quads mod, so they have a chance of multiples (chance of twins is higher than normal, trips and quads are also possible. I do this so the population gets a boost.

The first time Pauline was pregant, she gave birth to twin girls. Then she became pregnant almost right away again, and gave birth to another girl. And then on the last day of the rotation she got pregnant and gave birth to the only boy of the bunch. So, 3 pregnancies resulting in 4 kids in 5 days. Poor sims

I'm trying out a modified version of this. Instead of skin 1/2 dominance, I'm using humans (of any human skin color) and elves (Inspired by Dragon Age). Humans and elves look very different here, though. Elven features cannot be mistaken for human features, to make things easier on me. So, whenever the rules call for S1/S2/S3/S4, I go with the total of all the features, with a maximum of ten elven features.
S1/S2 (since the distinction doesn't seem to affect gameplay) : 0-2 Elven Features
S3: 3-6 Elven Features
S4: 7-10 Elven Features

For the Age of Exlporation, I'm swapping out the roles of S3 and S4 equivalents, because Dalish Elves. S3-equivalent sims will be the equivalent of City Elves.
