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. ^_^

is it too late to start this challenge now? and is it open to people who didn't submit a founder? :)
Jun. 28th, 2010 03:13 pm (UTC)
Absolutely not too late to start now - hell I haven't started yet either! xD

And its open to anyone and everyone who is a pixel_trade member, past or present or future ^^

Can you edit the founder? like the hair, clothes or no.
and I just joined is it fine to start the challenge ?

You need to keep her genetics in tact (eye colour, hair colour, skin colour) BUT that doesn't mean you can't slap contacts on her, and change her hair to whatever you like in a mirror once you have her out of CAS and in-game.

If you're talking Sims 3, however, unfortunately you can't change the hair colour either as it passes down genetically. ^_^;;

Go absolutely crazy with the clothes, do anything you like! :D

OK, I'm late to the party because I'm a big chicken, but I had this week off as vacation so I figured out how to change aspirations, use abduction hacks, townify PT sims and use ACR on some poor test subjects. I do believe I'm ready to go!! :D
Jul. 5th, 2010 05:09 am (UTC)
Good luck!
Jul. 5th, 2010 05:18 am (UTC)
Thank you, bb!

I'm so trying this challenge.
I've discovered it @ perchalicious and I really like the idea.
Just a quick question:
How do I make sims from other pixel_trade members to be "townies" in Sims 3?
Is it only creating them in CAS and moving them into a house via edit town?
Jul. 5th, 2010 05:09 am (UTC)
WOO! Welcome to the insanity ^_^

And yes, that's basically all you need do in TS3 to make the 'townies' equivalent.

Just a heads up though, sometimes they escape the bin an you get duplicates! I've not tried yet but I assume placing them and then deleting them from the bin would fix that.
Jul. 5th, 2010 11:54 am (UTC)
Alrighty, I think I got it, thank you! :D

Oh, do I need to start from scratch like in a "standard" legacy with a huge lot with nothing on it or shall I choose a cheap starter house?
Jul. 5th, 2010 12:07 pm (UTC)
That one's totally up to you, I think most people have started with a 40x40 blank lot and built on it - believe it or not you can get a pretty darn decent house built with all the needed amenities right off the bat. xD But its completely your choice ^_^
Jul. 5th, 2010 12:10 pm (UTC)
Ok, thank you, you're so quick :D
I was thinking about a beach lot to start from.

This is a really late question, and I realize I'm not "officially" part of the challenge since I haven't even posted my first update yet, but I'd like to know: do possible heirs have to be put to a poll, or can we choose? And what's the general rule on heirs? In round robins it's the first three children only that can be considered, but in the VDSL can it be any of them as long as they're blood related between a pixel trade sim and the torchbearer? Again, sorry to ask these questions so late...but I haven't had time to even play the VDSL much since I started in May - and now that I have time, playing seemed optimal, even if I am "out"
Jul. 27th, 2010 01:43 am (UTC)
LOTS of us haven't started yet - you're officially involved when you start it :D So don't worry that you didn't start in May ^_^ I'm not posting mine till I have a) enough time to play and b) enough time to POST! xD

Possible heirs can be determined ANY WAY YOU LIKE! :D But yes, they do indeed have to be blood related to a pixel_trade sim and the torchbearer. You're correct on that one ^^ But that's basically the only restriction.

Jul. 27th, 2010 02:17 am (UTC)
Yay! Thanks for the quick response ^_^
Now I feel safe to move on to the next week without fear of doing it wrong :p
