Episode 52 - Seven Deadly Sims



-Edited for Pets.-

Basics:
You begin with one adult sim. S/he is of no fixed sin, but his/her children will be. The beginning sim will only need to obey the base rules, and help the children with the personality or body shape changes. This challenge can last up to eight generations, if you want to give each sin full time, and can be bothered to play that long. Or, you can have multiple sins in one generation (Ex. Lust sister with a Gluttony brother). The challenge is over when all seven sins have lived out their lives, and the last one dies.

Rules:
You may find the sin's spouses. They serve as a demi-sin, which means they must also obey the rules, and can earn points and penalties. Some sins might require this (ex. You have a female Envy, and wish to earn alien nooboo points. Envy's husband/lover may earn these points.)
If a sim is not intended to be a sin, they will not be able to earn any points, or penalties, and must be moved out as soon as they are adults (or before).
You do not have to name the sims you intend to use as a sin after their vice. You may name your sims how you like.
Your sims may not move out, and back in again, and one may go to university. Just one, in the entire challenge.
You do not have to roll for aspiration. If you have a sim you know would make a good Pride, you may make that sim family when they turn teen. You may not change aspiration after this, unless it is to make a Grilled Cheese sim.
If you do not have Nightlife, it is slightly pointless to try this challenge, but you can replace Pleasure with another Romance, and Grilled Cheese with whatever.
Use your common sense. If you cannot do part of the challenge due to lack of an expansion pack, ignore it.

Base points:
+1 for using an NPC or Simself (I wrote this rule simply because I want to use simselves, but don't want to miss out on a point).
+1 for every child born.
+1 for every platinum grave.
+5 for getting all ghost colours.
+5 for every roof-raiser party that is not busted by the cops.
+10 for starting and maintaining a business throughout the challenge.
+10 for finishing the challenge.
-1 for every child taken away.
-1 for every aspiration failure.

Uni points:
These are in addition to obeying your sin rules.
+1 for being on the Dean's list every year.
+1 for getting into the Secret Society.

-2 for everyone who gets in a fight on your business lot.


Pets points:
If you are feeling a little masochistic, you can do the challenge with pets as well.
Base pet points:
+1 for every pet grave.
+1 for every sim who has been bitten by a wolf.
+1 for having only one type of pet. For example, just cats or just dogs. To earn this point, every time the opposite pet enters the lot, it must be shooed off. If you have chosen cats, you may still allow the wolves on the lot.
-1 for every pet who runs away.
-1 for every pet who dies in a manner other than old age.

All points in these categories are in addition to base points.

+1 for every woohoo partner.
+1 for every lover.
+1 for every 3LB lover. (In addition to every lover points.

I have a question about the founder - when you mention NPC do you mean a service NPC (mailman etc) or just a Maxis made sim (either playable or non playable) instead of a CAS sim?

I'm not sure what the author had in mind. Near the end of the post I put a link to the BBS discussion where you can ask the author.

OK, thanks. I am listening to your podcast on it now. It is just about over. I will contact the author and see what she says.
