The Princess Challenge (Sims 3 Version)
The Princess Challenge


This is an ADAPTATION for the sims 3! Original sims 4 version here (By Aislynne)

Goals
The goal of this challenge is to make the prince fall in love with you and to become a princess. Will you be a conniving schemer or a kind-hearted do-gooder? The choice is yours and you can win either way. Your decisions will have an impact on your reputation, your traits and your future, however, so choose carefully!

Setting up
-Create six candidates in CAS and move them in. They need to be young adults. Pick their traits randomly (Randomize Everyone's traits). One of the princess will be "you" meaning, you control them and their actions.
-You may build the castle yourself or use a premade one. Also make sure that there are enough skilling objects for everybody: a couple of easels, different instruments, chess tables, skill books and so on. You need to use a money cheat to be able to afford everything. You may also freely use money during the challenge. Itís recommended not to have other fun-building items than skilling objects and skill books on the lot, because the princess candidates would then probably use them too often. (I recomend to put just one TV or none if you wish)
-Create the royal family in CAS: the king, the queen and the prince, who is their only child. You may choose their looks and traits or randomize them. Put them in another lot (They aren't playable). You wonít be visiting them during the challenge.
-Set lifespan to long.
-In the beginning, take your sim to visit the royal family and introduce yourself to them and control the others (but donít try to become friends with them etc.). That way youíll know them and be able to invite them to your parties.

Rules and instructions
-The challenge lasts three weeks. You need to consult the schedule at six a.m. every day to know what happens that day.
-You may not check how much skill level a candidade has, unless the daily challenge says so.
-You cannot control the other candidates unless it says so in the daily schedule or the random events. Exception: You may occasionally make them clean or repair objects, but you also have to take part in those activities yourself.
-When youíre required to roll a random event, use random.org or roll dice. If itís an event youíve already rolled during the challenge, roll again until you get one that you havenít had already.
-You may not call the prince, the queen or the king, chat with them or to invite them over unless it says so in the daily schedule or the random events. You are also not allowed to interact with anybody else in the world except your own household.
-Cheats and mods that give you an advantage over a person who doesn't use them are not recommended.
-One random event cannot be done twice
-You can't hire a maid, but you can have a Bonehilda (If supernatural)
-Free will always at maximum (unless you find too hard to make the princess do something in the daily schedule, then you may turn it off for the moment).

Points
The number of points you have at the end of the challenge will determine your simís fate and whether youíve completed the challenge successfully. You will gain and lose points during the challenge. You should keep track of your points manually on a piece of paper. Just remember that the number of points at the end of the challenge determines whether you've been successful!

Schemer / Kind-Hearted points
These are the other points you will get during the challenge. Every time you get one, keep count of how many youíve already got. You can have both Schemer and Kind-Hearted points at the same time.

Tips
-All skills are useful, but the following are the ones youíll especially need to be successful in the challenge: Cooking, Gardening, Charisma, Musical (Any instrument), Painting, Logic, Mixology.
-It's a good idea to buy expensive furniture. The most expensive bed is helpful, for example, because you won't need to sleep that long every night.

Observation
You know when someone has won in chess when a sim clap. If a sim clap, the other one is victorious.

You can stop reading now if you want and go start the challenge (Challenge will be harder). Just remember to check the daily schedule (below) every day at 6 a.m! You can also keep reading if you wish (Challenge will be easier). Iíll be happy to answer any questions you may have!

THE DAILY SCHEDULE














































The challenge is over! See the section THE RESULTS AND THE DESTINIES below.



RANDOM EVENTS
When the daily schedule asks you to roll a random event, use random.org or roll dice. You need numbers 1 to 14. If itís an event youíve already rolled during the challenge, roll again until you get one that you havenít had already.





























THE RESULTS AND THE DESTINIES

When the challenge is over, check how many points you have as well as how many Schemer and Kind-Hearted points you have. Then find your corresponding destiny below.





















Hoped you liked this challenge and please don't forget to check the original one!
Kisses,
LetCupcake

Ooooooh!! This seems very interesting, and well written! Thank you for adapting it for Sims 3, I don't have Sims 4 yet so this is quite welcome. I have a few questions before I properly start my game:

1. The Sims 4 game adds their aspiration points to the final score which is why completing whims is encouraged. Does this adaptation add Lifetime Happiness points to the overall score? I don't know how fast Sims 4 sims gain aspiration points but Lifetime Happiness points rack up pretty fast if you complete wishes which will make hitting >4000 points pretty easy. Maybe you could make it a rule to be like every 1000 LTH points = 100 game points or even just 10 game points or something. Alternatively, you could rule out adding LTH points to the game score at all. In this case, would Lifetime Rewards be legal? (The original Sims 4 challenge allows it but advises the player to be wise when buying rewards as only unspent aspiration points count towards the end.)

2. The meal/plant qualities don't have the exact same name in Sims 3 and Sims 4. When you say "better than ok", do you mean "better than normal" or "better than nice"?

3. The garden opportunity requires the plants to be of better quality than "ok". I don't know how it works in Sims 4 but in Sims 3, plants stay the same quality until they die or go barren, but they sometimes yield a harvest of higher quality than its parent plant. Do we have to keep the same plant throughout the entire garden challenge or are we allowed to replace it with the same plant of higher quality once it yield as higher quality harvest? (For example: Your sim plants a nice quality lettuce. One of the harvested lettuce is of very nice quality. Do you have to keep the original nice lettuce or are you allowed to dispose of it and plant your very nice lettuce in its place?)

4. Cheerful isn't a Sims 3 trait. Maybe we could replace with with something similar like Friendly.

5. Are we allowed only one Bonehilda? Or are we allowed many?

6. From the lets plays I've seen of Sims 4, invited sims will come over no matter what their relationship status with the sim who invited them is. In Sims 3, invited sims who don't have a green bar in their relationship tend to not want to come over when invited. In addition, they take a small hit in relationship status with the sim that invite them over if they reject. On the first day, when we bring our girls to meet with the prince and his parents, we aren't allowed to make friends with any of them. What if they refuse to come over when we invite them over for a party or for special visits? Can we use a mod to force them to come over? The relationship hit (if rejected) is kind of unfair for the sim that invites the prince/queen/king over. How do we get around this?

7. Are sims allowed to build skills before the day requires them to? Like for example: For Day 5, all princesses have to practise their Charisma. Are we allowed to direct our main sim to build their Charisma skill before Day 5 to have a better chance of reaching higher skill points?

8. We aren't allowed to control the other princesses for most of the challenge but are we allowed to access their inventory to get out an object they've placed in there? Like, instruments and books and stuff.

9. What mods are allowed in this game? I have quite a few from Nraas but they're mostly to help make my game run smoother (Error Trap & Overwatch), make my town come alive (Story Progression & Story Progression - Relationships), and Master Controller. I know Master Controller is very cheaty but I installed it for my regular games to view NPC ages and traits or to edit them out of the hideous randomised clothing and hair. Sometimes I use to force NPCs to go to lots for story telling purposes. I never use it to give my playable sims a better shot at life because I find doing things the hard way much more fulfilling. I hate removing mods because I'm quite clueless when it comes to mod instalment and removal safety (don't want it to hurt my game or computer). Although for this challenge, I might have to turn off Story Progression. We don't want the prince to move out of his parents' place or the king and queen to get divorced or the prince to start dating some random townie commoner peasant now do we?

Sorry about the amount of questions, this challenge just seems very interesting and I would like to make sure I have all the kinks worked out before I go ahead and play it. I also forgot to save my castle the last time I made a medieval game and now I have to make it from scratch

1- Ok, Idk a mod that changes lifetime points so If you know one, post it here so I can add it.
2- Better than nice, sorry.
3- If you fertilize the plant its quality goes up
4- thanks
5- How many you want
6- You can use cheats to increase the relationship invite them and then put it back
7- You can control your sim to do anything, just not the other contestants. And you can practice before.
8- Sure. I know books get stuck there
9- I advise to change the town progress off (both mod and game). Mods -> anything that doesn't involve building skills faster

Really sorry for the long time to answer but I have school and stuff
So ya! thanks...

I was being sarcastic, I just started today and I'm ADDICTED. When we went over to the prince's house/castle one of the contestants went straight to their hot tub and started skinny dipping, and that was a laugh. Someone else was loop trolling on the forums nonstop, and that was funny but more in the annoying side

An addon to the nrass mastercontroller mod (master controller cheats) lets you add or subtract any lifetime happiness. I belive you click intermediate and then click lifetime happiness.

This looks so awesome! I just downloaded a nice castle, so I can start trying this
One question, though - should the Royal family live in a castle as well? So, would we need two castles in our world?

The royal family should not live in the princess castle. You can have them move to a nice a castle or any general house, it doesn't matter

No, I understood that, but I was wondering if they needed to live in a specific kind of lot. Thank you for your answer!
I've got one more question: I'm just about to start day 6. My Sim reached level 3 of Charisma the day before, but it says level 2 or lower or level 4 and up. What about level three? Do I just get nothing?

Edit: Another question: how exactly do we know what Sim won/lost the chess contests? They all just seem to quit after a while, without anyone losing or winning.

Level 3 doesn't get nothing really xP

When you put 2 sims to play togheter you need to watch very closely. You know a sim has won when the other claps.
Sorry, I'll put an observation
