The Viking Death Squad Legacy: Attributes Poll

Viking Death Squad Legacy Challenge: Official Rules

  1. The founder must be the sim voted champion in the requisite game's poll, and must have the community voted preselected stats/traits. Sims 2 Founder Download//Sims 3 Founder Download.

  2. All spouses must be pixel_trade sims; maximum of two sims per creator. Any and all heirs MUST be a result of a pixel_trade union. Childen via pixel_trade member-made ideal plantsim replacements and multi-pollination techs are allowed. No maxis.

  3. For each sim week you play, you must randomly roll a challenge from the Mega Lists of Mini Challenges for either Sims 2 or Sims 3 - whichever game you're playing in ^_^.

  4. The Legacy lasts 5 generations, you may feel free to go for longer, but it must be a minimum of 5. You do not have to finish the legacy within the 10 weeks but that's the goal you should aspire to.

  5. The challenge is 10 weeks long. From the first post you make, you must make at least one post per week for a minimum of seven weeks within the ten. More is absolutely welcome, less (or you miss all three in a row) and you're out 'officially.'

  6. Make sure you advertise each post to the community - we totally want to keep track! :D

  7. All teasers cannot be larger than 600x600px and only one image outside a cut per teaser post.

Sims 2 Founder Stats:

with Freetime/Nightlife: Grilled Cheese (Secondary of Romance)
without Freetime/Nightlife: Romance

As you cannot set a sim to Grilled Cheese straight from CAS, there are several ways to do this once the sim is on a lot. The easiest, however, is to turn on "boolprop testingcheatsenabled true" then shift+click on your sim and choose Spawn > Sim Modder. You'll get on the ground near your sim what looks like a really freaky standing baby. xD Click on the freaky baby, and choose Aspiration > Set Me(NameOfSim) > Grilled Cheese.

VOILA! You're done.

Sims 3 Founder Stats:

No Sense of Humor

Favourite Food:
Grilled Cheese

As an extra note: Please make sure when you're downloading that you use CleanInstaller, MacUnpac or Delphy's Sims 3 Pack Multi-Extracter to extract your sims etc to make sure that they're as clean as possible for your hoods - and so that when you're sharing sims that they don't contain any nasty 'suckerfish' style pieces of CC. ^_^

Few things.
1. Probably a duh question, but I use an ideal plantsim replacement by stakeit_uk, but it's not listed on that link above (because it was made after the fact). That's still game though, right?

2. More of a recommendation than a question: If doing a Sims 3 legacy, it would probably be best to import the pixel trade spouses in one generation at a time, due to story progression, correct?
May. 18th, 2010 05:31 am (UTC)
Re: Few things.
1. Any and all replacements made by members are totally eligible. If you find one made by a member that isn't on the list, maybe pm them to suggest it or comment with a link yourself? ;) :D

Its not a complete list by any means, but its a good jumping off point. :D

2. That one is totally up to you and your play style. I would definitely recommend pre-choosing and then putting the spouses in as you need them, though, yes. Just makes it easier :D

I also have a question about pollination tech's. Would pirate McSkittles be ok? i believe it was made after that thread was posted, and he makes such cute alien babies.
May. 18th, 2010 03:55 am (UTC)
I think I can answer that (but a mod can correct me if I'm wrong): I believe he's okay because he was made by sixamsims.

Question! So I used the boolprop to make the sim modder creepy baby and set Bekah to Grilled Cheese. Only now it won't show her icon over her status bars as grilled cheese. You know on the left the bar to show green/gold/platinum mood and the icon for choosing aspiration points has completely disappeared. I have her backpack and the job rewards button, but the other one is gone.

I don't use boolprop that often and I've never used sim modder, but I'm assuming this is not what's supposed to happen?
May. 18th, 2010 05:04 am (UTC)
Okay, that is definitely not supposed to happen, and I've personally never encountered that error, and I've had a LOT of Grilled Cheese sims, even on my Mac where you can't have Freetime...

I guess at this point all I can advise is for you to search forums etc for a possible fix? Its entirely possible that this kind of error has been encountered by a MATYan for example.

I can look when work and other commitments I have are over but that wont be very quick for you ^_^;; If you DO find a solution, would you mind posting/commenting back here with it in case other people come across this bug?

Are we allowed to tweak the founder's appearance/name as per the community rules (i.e everything can go except facial structure and first name)?
May. 18th, 2010 05:28 am (UTC)
You can change everything about them including name as long as you keep the facial structure and for this purpose, skin/hair/eye colour. But feel free to go crazy with CC etc.

If you want them to have different eye colours you can always give them contacts, and hair/brow colour as long as they're MADE with the right one, you can change that in-game at a mirror to keep genetics the same but visuals different :D

Hope that makes sense?

Okay, so when does the week end? Or rather, when do I have to post by? My boyfriend has next two days off from work and he'll be hogging the computer.. so I need to know how much time I have to play game, & then sort out an update.
May. 18th, 2010 06:33 am (UTC)
From rule five, your weeks start when you start posting, basically. So if make your first post in two weeks on a Monday, then your ten weeks start there, and every new week starts on a Monday for you.

If I post tomorrow (which I'm so totally not xD) then my ten weeks end two weeks before yours and my weeks start on a Wednesday.

Make sense? ^_^

Silly questions time!

Are all sims made by pixel_trade members good, even if they weren't specifically submitted here? What about sims posted at MTS2?

Is it acceptable to change the founder's skin tone or eyecolor slightly if it keeps the general idea? Like, instead of my default s1 and dark blue, I use geneticized/townified skins and eyes that are pale and blue, respectively?

How strictly do the pixel_trade rules apply to spares? Does it matter who they marry/get knocked up by? Only if they remain in the main house or something?
May. 18th, 2010 07:13 am (UTC)
LOL! I'm sure they're not.

1) Yeaps. As long as they're made by members it doesn't matter where they posted them. ^_^ If you can get your hands on them, then they're fair game.

2) Yes, as long as you try and keep to it as closely as possible - which it seems like you definitely are ^_^

3) Spares are pretty much DO WHAT YOU LIKE. If you want them to marry the maid and have a passel of children then that's totally cool. But it has to be understood that those are all non-heirs and can't ever 'carry the torch' for your legacy family ^_^

Technically, if your founder/heir gets knocked up by another sim or a non-member pollination tech then that's cool - its YOUR game. BUT none of those children are eligible to be the heir for the next generation - and are all relegated to spare hood. Does that make sense? ^_^
May. 18th, 2010 08:40 am (UTC)
I have a setup for my dice rolling program filled with Jade's Random Occurance Scenarios, with a few gems in it:

3. Blind Date Rampage! Sim must go on (d4) blind dates - one each night - until complete.
4. Cheapskate! Sim must take spouse/partner or highest LT rel. Sim on a date and attempt to skip out on the bill.
5. Woohoo RIGHT NOW Sim must drop everything and woohoo RIGHT NOW, for (d4) times. Choose spouse/partner or highest daily rel. if single. No mood cheats allowed, but Sims may satisfy a critical need - but then back to the bed!
6. Completely Silly Fight Sim picks fight with Sim with highest LT rel.

1. Social Anxiety Social Bunny has to visit (d6) times before Sim can talk to another Sim again.
9. Broke a leg! Sim must stay home for 3 days.No stairs.
10. Fakin' and Slackin' Sim calls in sick for (d4) days in a row. If the Sim is fired, you must accept that consequence. You may get the Sim a job in the same career again if that happens.

13. Stock Market Crash Deduct from funds: (d100) x 1000
14. Repo Man Rampage (d4) for # of visits To get this scenario to occur just do not pay the bills until the Repo Man has showed up the rolled # of times.
15. Being Blackmailed Deduct from funds: Pay Sim with lowest LT daily rel. (d100) x 10 every day for (d6) days. If Sim can't pay, then deduct the same amount due in ASP points.

Can I use this sometimes for Mini Challenges, too? Come on, there's blackmail, and there's a midlife crisis one... XD
May. 18th, 2010 09:34 am (UTC)
Quite a lot of these are similar (in spirit if not in exact wording) to ones already in the list. But if you want to add more challenges - especially if you want to roll these in addition to the ones you roll from the mega list (so you have two in the week) - then I can't see why you shouldn't be able to. xD
May. 18th, 2010 12:25 pm (UTC)
Really like the Mega Lists of Challenges, really like.

*spontaneously applauds BondChick-Nett, Engram au & Dragancaor*

Must admit to having a favourite and will admit that, if I don't spontaneously roll it during the ten weeks, I am so going to cheat and make it my very last mini challenge :D

Looking forward to the first postings from everyone.
May. 18th, 2010 01:00 pm (UTC)
LOL! I have some favourites too, and some very definite "OH MY GOD PLEASE NO!" ones xD

The other day I thought I'd rolled the one where you basically sell EVERYTHING, and I'd JUST finished decorating the new house. Then I realised I was reading the wrong section and breathed the biggest sigh of relief ever xD
May. 18th, 2010 12:45 pm (UTC)

1. Aside from the founder (who has to stay a girl), what's the official word on changing the sex of a p_t sim?

2. For PT replacements, if the set contains sims by four different creators and was created by a fifth (different) person, how is that counted when it comes to the "2 sims per contributor" guideline? Is it considered the hack creator's contribution or what? (I'm thinking of using gheez's set that contains 4 p_t sims)
May. 18th, 2010 12:55 pm (UTC)
1. I know I've changed the gender of sims I've downloaded before and used them in challenges etc and none of the mods pulled me up on it (obviously before I became a mod xD), so as far as I know you can do what you like in that regard. ^_^

2. Each of the PTs used would count as the original creator's.

So say I have a Multi-PT containing sims from person a, b, c & d, and person e put them together. My founder is impregnated by a sim made by person a, and marries a sim made by person e and they have two more children. I can now only have one more sim by a & e each in the legacy, but two sims each by persons c & d are still fair game.

Does that make sense or make it more confusing? xD

PS: Gheez's set is SO going into my VDSLC hood too! xD

I am so looking forward to starting this! I am thinking of doing this for Sims 3, but the founder for Sims 2 looks SO cute! :D

I need to find more PT Sims for Sims 3...
May. 18th, 2010 03:58 pm (UTC)
I am sooo excited to start this in a few weeks!!! :d

Just one question...Does the challenge "end" at the birth of Generation 5, when they become an adult, have a kid, or...???
May. 18th, 2010 04:05 pm (UTC)
I guess it depends on how you usually play your legacies. When I play, my generations start/end at adulthood, but some people start them as soon as the next gen is born.

Its really up to you, let how you categorize previous generations be your guide? ^_^

I'm so excited for this challenge! I'm going to be playing with the lovely sims 2 founder. It'll be my first experience playing a pixel_trade neighborhood. Thank you so much for how organized this community is, it's really helped me understand everything I need to do to prepare and play the challenge.

I do have a question though. I have some pretty severe medical problems and coming up within the next couple of weeks, I'm very likely going to be leaving for the neurosurgery department at Johns Hopkins. (so excited!!) Anyway, I shouldn't be there longer than 2 weeks, but if I am there 3 weeks or more and am officially out of the challenge, do I have to stop posting the legacy or can I continue posting to my own journal, and not just to pixel_trade? What are the rules for after "failing" the challenge?
May. 19th, 2010 02:35 am (UTC)
I think if you know this is coming up then perhaps if you're excited to play then totally do so now, and even get your posts ready but DON'T start posting them till after you return? :D

Then your 'ten weeks' doesn't start till then and you'll have a lot of stuff ready to go and you still get to play. :D Total win win :D

Question! :)

I started playing yesterday (The Sims 2 version). I played epic amounts. When I got up this morning, the first... 50 screencaps or so hadn't actually taken. First shot I have is the marriage proposal! :( This cuts out most of the standard legacy start stuff. (I went into more detail here.)

This is what I'm thinking of doing: Restarting the legacy and having the somewhat delightfully wild antics that happened in my HOURS of playing yesterday be a convoluted dream sequence, though I really hate to lose the kids and spouse and 50 grilled cheeses eaten.

I just want to make sure this isn't a naughty thing to do before I go through with it. Thanks so much!
May. 20th, 2010 02:55 am (UTC)
LOL! Well that one is up to you, its your game so you can do what you like with your posts really. xD

If you want to you could always not restart, clone your sims in another hood and take some 'staged' screenshots of the big events and do a 'recap' at the start even though you're recapping something that no one else saw?

Then you could just keep playing from where you are and not stress out :D
