PostSubject: 30 Day of Sim Making   Mon Dec 29, 2014 9:04 am

I ran across this on tumblr and thought people might be interested in it.  It would work for any flavor of Sims you play, but since I predominantly play TS3, I'm posting it here.

The idea is to make a sim-a-day based on the following list of prompts.  I haven't undertaken it because I can't do a sim in a single day (not to my satisfaction anyway!)  I might make it a sim-a-week challenge though.  

Credits for the original concept go to Meggyreap@tumblr  : Original Post

Day 1: Simself
Day 2: Favorite Celebrity
Day 3: Favorite Character
Day 4: Berry Sweet
Day 5: In the style of another simmer
Day 6: Someone you know
Day 7: Remake of an old sim
Day 8: Toddler sim (no cas babies or born in game)
Day 9: Elder sim
Day 10: Classic Monster
Day 11: Cartoony
Day 12: Pet sim
Day 13: Evil sim
Day 14: Private detective
Day 15: Crazy Cat Lady
Day 16: Sim based on an object
Day 17:Cheerleader
Day 18: Bachelor
Day 19: Based on an animal
Day 20: Superhero and Alter Ego
Day 21: Holiday based sim
Day 22: Goody-two-shoes
Day 23: Athlete
Day 24: Nerd
Day 25: Punk
Day 26: Hippie
Day 27: Based on a pattern (ie. stripes, polka dots, etc.)
Day 28: Teacher
Day 29: Baby doll
Day 30: Epitome of your sim style!

For many people, doing a sim per day is a bit much.  Nothing says they have to be contiguous days.  It could be a sim-a-week.  Or it could just be a launching pad for ideas.

A nice alternative (or in addition to?) to this, is Button's Twelve Months of Sims!

That's a great idea K2....I agree, there is no way I could make a sim a day either. Possibly a week or maybe one a month. Thanks for posting. Smile thumbs up

This is great, thanks for posting!!

I'll never make the deadline of a Sim a day, but it will be my challenge to make all these Sims next year.

Yay, something to look forward to!

I started this challenge with Sims4. My Sims3 game takes ages to load, didn't want to bother.

Awesome! A daring participant! I think I'll add links to the first post.

@Buttons - I'm up for an avatar make-over challenge! What are your thoughts? Doing the items on this challenge's list or some other idea?

We did that before and I thought it went very well. We remade the cat lady She had at least 4 cats and was in the criminal career in AP. We redid her old house too. thumbs up Too bad I can't remember her name. It will come to me when it no longer matters. giggle
