PostSubject: Challenge Mash-Up   Wed May 04, 2016 8:34 am

Challenge Mash-Up
Mash-Up: Something created by combining elements from two or more sources
http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/mash–up
Most Sim game play challenges focus on making money, finding a mate and creating a family to carry forward the household legacy. Wondering what would happen if several challenges were combined I present to you the Challenge Mash-Up. You may want to combine other challenges but I decided to use elements from the following challenges.
Sims 4 Room Challenge by @katoregama Building a Fortune
Lonely Hearts by @EuphorialQueen and @Butonsginger Finding a Mate
Rosebud Challenge by @EuphorialQueen Another Fortune Goal
Highlander Crest by @Buttonsginger Living a long life via Youth Potion
The Sims 4 Legacy Challenge by @Pinstar1161 A nod to the Legacy aspect
There may be elements of other challenges as well but these are the foundation of this challenge.

General Rules for the entire challenge:
Normal Lifespan
Aging On
No Money Cheats
Aspiration Reward Potions and Traits are allowed as long as the points are earned to buy them.
Moving to a different lot is allowed after the completion of each stage of the challenge.
My personal choice is to remain free of CC and / or Mods.
CC is allowed per the players choice. Remember to credit the creator when sharing.
Mods are limited to those that help resolve game issues.

How does a Challenge Mash-Up work?
The rules of the challenges listed will be amended to fit this new challenge.
You may choose a different path but here is my plan.
Starting with the Room Challenge (amended rules)
Create a single YA Sim as the founder of the Challenge Mash-Up.
Male or Female / Aliens are allowed.
Your choice of traits {Except Loner}and any Aspiration.
Sims already in the Gallery may be used with credit to the creator.
*Must be free of Skills and have only basic traits to start the challenge.
Once you have finished your Sim you can move into any neighborhood.
No Money Cheats.
For the first stage start with any size lot with only a single room and NO landscaping.
That will come later as you play the game.
I will be using a space created using the Room Challenge guidelines.
Living space (including any outdoor space for mailbox) is a total 64 squares in any configuration.
One floor - no stairs - no basement to start.
The single floor space is your entire living space for this part of the challenge.
Using a smaller lot to start will keep the bills under control and promote Maximum gain of funds.
Examples:
Sad Box on the Lawn by EQ (Room)
https://www.thesims.com/gallery/F25EFEE2444A11E583C9DD3160E4BD92
One Room Living (Room)
https://www.thesims.com/gallery/F531351EB29A11E48D04633690F25A34

Official Update 09 May 2016
Stage One: Surviving the Room Challenge
Once on the lot send your Lucky Sim into the house/room and remove the door.
There can be a bit of outdoor space as long as it is within the limits of the allowed space.
Do not forget the Mailbox and an outdoor trashcan inside your living space.

Goal: Become Well Off by completing stage three of the Fabulously Wealthy Aspiration.
Well-Off Have earned §75K with §35K in Reserve
Reach at Level 10 of at least one skill.
Either complete the Best Selling Author Aspiration
Or achieve Level 10 of a second skill.
FYI:
Athletic, Deviance, Family or Popularity Aspirations cannot be completed in Stage One of #ChallengeMashUp
Aspiration Summary
Only the Best Selling Author or Fortune can be completed during stage one due to game requirements.
You can switch to work on any Aspiration you like to gain Aspiration Points.

No leaving the lot.
No Career/Job at this point.
Make your fortune Painting, Crafting, Writing or anything not involving leaving the lot.
Limited Youth Potions can be used since this is a complex challenge.
Try to stay at YA stage as long as possible to be able to complete the next stage.

Stage Two: Finding Love and starting the next generation.
Now your Sim has become Well Off it is time to put their solitary existence behind them and look for their true love.
Guidelines:
Go out into the world and introduce yourself to begin your search.
Get to know them and find a match but they cannot have more than one matching trait.
From the original challenge:
Goal 1: Establish a positive relationship with any Sim of any gender.
Goal 2: Must go on at least 2 dates gold medal rating with your intended.
Goal 3: Become Boyfriend/Girlfriend
Once this goal is completed you are allowed to move in a mate after an accepted proposal
Goal 4: Marry your intended.

Additional comments:
As long as points are earned they can be spent on Potions and additional Traits.
Mood enhancing items can be used if you wish. Examples include paintings, lamps or other items.

Bonus Goals
Maximize a skill.
Complete an Aspiration.

Time to move to the next stage.

Stage Three: Establishing a family to begin the next generation.
Here is where the Legacy Challenge component comes into play.
Congratulations! You have made it this far and only have a bit more to go.
Allowing your Founder to age will be your choice. You can also choose to include the Highlander Crest component and keep slamming back the Youth potion.
Children are next on the agenda with as few or as many as you wish.
Traits can be random or chosen with a purpose.
Throw in a touch of The Wonder Child Challenge by @ImagingMystic and make your child/children as perfect as possible.
Continue to grow your family for Five generations.
When the Fifth generation heir reaches YA you have completed the entire gauntlet of the Challenge Mash-Up.

That first stage was tough. She was super happy when a door magically appeared to let her out. She also got a spiffy new house in another town.

Looks to me like the only options for the "other aspiration" are musical genius or best selling author....am I correct?

I was happily working towards the painter extraordinaire until stage three....I forgot about having to view paintings at the museum Head Desk

@Buttonsginger Unfortunately there are limited options for aspirations that can actually be completed.
The Best Selleringredients Author can be completed as well as the ones for Fortune. Hmmmm do you think there needs to be an amendment to the rules?

You might consider listing the "other aspirations" that can be completed in the stage one rules.....just so someone doesn't start in and get to level three and find out they have to start over on the second aspiration.....like me....hehehehehehehe giggle

Added to forum post:
@Glimmer50 @Buttonsginger
Your feedback is valuable and very much appreciated. There are certain things I do automatically and tend to 'forget' 😳 *Oops*
First let me verify that you can work on any skill either thru practice or reading books.
Dancing and Photography skills are maxed at Level Five.
I did a survey of the aspirations and have a sort of list to consider when starting the challenge.
Athletic, Deviance, Family or Popularity Aspirations cannot be completed in Stage One of #ChallengeMashUp
Creative: Best Selling Author Can be completed in its entirety.
Painter and Musical aspirations require either travel (Painter Step three to museum) or Mentoring (Musical Genius step four).
Food: Master Chef & Master Mixologist require joining careers.
Grilled Cheese Can be unlocked by eating 3 Grilled Cheese in a row but Step One requires talking about Grilled Cheese.
Fortune: Fabulously Wealthy can be completed but only thru Step Three /'Well-Off' is required.
Mansion Baron is possible but takes too long (in my opinion Wink )
Love: Comes into the picture in Stage Two but you could work on Charisma using a mirror if you like.
Nature: Require collecting of some sort. Gardening skill can be gained using the planter box.
Popularity: Cannot be completed in Stage One/Room Challenge. The Microphone can be used to boost Social and gain Comedy Skill as a bonus.
