Introduction:
The Trade Off challenge borrows elements from other game-play challenges.
It is a type of rotational challenge with members in the same household.
It begins simply with two Sims that can only be controlled during assigned time frames.
More on that later but first how about some background to get your creative storytelling juices flowing.

Backstory:
The letter was handwritten on stationary embossed with a strange logo. The envelope has only your name and the logo with no return address. Thinking it is just junk mail you toss it in the bin but then take it back out again when you realize the writing was vaguely familiar. Was it from someone you knew? Just what kind of prank were they trying to pull? "You have been selected for a special project." Yea ... sure. Not going to fall for that trick. As you glance back down at the letter a phrase catches your attention "... and a vast fortune awaits when the assigned tasks are completed". Hmm this could be worth investigating even if it is a fake. "Just wait til I find out which of my friends sent this" you say thinking out loud. You decide it could be worth a good laugh and quickly make note of the address and arrange transportation.

Your story starts here:
Who sent the letter? Was it an old friend or family member? Why was it sent to you ... for what purpose?
There will be someone living on the same lot with you. Are you related, old colleagues or a previous romantic interest or perhaps an enemy from your past or a total stranger?

Playing the challenge: ¥¥
As previously mentioned your two Sims must have at least one or more traits opposite the other. Since the housemates have incompatible traits they may tend to sabotage each other. {evil grin}
Move in day is on a Sunday. For the duration of the challenge this will be the only day both Sims can be controlled.
They live on the same lot but not in a shared space.
Seasons are set to 14 days to allow each Sim a full week of each season. It is also a way to track time spent playing.
You may start on any Season of your choosing.
If you do not have the Seasons pack you can use some other way to track the number of weeks played.
=====
Decide on the first Sunday who will be controlled that week. Every Monday will be the Trade Off day.
Example:
Spring Week 1 = Control Sim A
Spring Week 2 = Control Sim B
Play this rotation thru at least eight Sim weeks. That will bring you back to the first day of your starting season and be a full Sim year.
=====
Goals and Achievements at end of Eight Weeks: ¥¥
1) Each Sim to complete at least one Aspiration each.
2) Reach Skill Level 10 of one or more skills each.
3) Career Advancement - Highest level achieved.
=====
⭐ Settings of 14 days for each season makes eight weeks a full year.
This can be the end of the challenge or you can continue to play.

Amended Rule: 09March2019
Sims standing on sidewalk (glitch):
Uncontrolled Sim may be directed to go inside after returning from work.
Holidays:
Adjust holiday activities to suit your gameplay style.
Both Sims can be controlled during a holiday.
*The uncontrolled Sim can be prompted to complete a holiday tradition.
{No fair having multiple holidays just to control both Sims Laughing }

Thank you all for playing and commenting. Smile

Here's my go! A Double Quandary



I started testing this before all the rules were added. Whistle

I decided not to use a vault to keep track of individual incomes.

I have one main door for the condo and then the individual doors to the condos are locked for each sim and their dog.

I had a few questions about travel.

Can the sim under control go to the jungle for vacation and leave the other at home?

Or should they go together and same rules on controlling them be applied?

Should they have a limit on days gone?

Yes the controlled Sim can travel on vacation during their week. Taking the other Sim is optional.
I had not set a limit for days on vacation.

Okay, thanks! I have a couple of dudes I made for this. Total opposites except they both like to investigate things. One explores outdoors in the jungle and the other is going to be a Strangerville conspiracy theorist.

Excited to see how their story turns out!

I am thinking of re doing it and maybe building a few skills before I send the one sim off to the jungle. giggle

I also had separate kitchens for them I think I will do a shared one this time because they rarely interacted of their own accord. The one sim just stayed inside his room on his cell phone when I was not playing him. Sad Rolling Eyes Laughing


** Oh, in re-reading the rules, I wonder if their aspirations are perhaps to similar as being adventurous. I may change that then. Okay I formed a plan... Big Grin

Played some today then realized I never set the seasons to 14 days. Head Desk

So I am going to do two rounds of seasons. I have been switching each sim I play when each new week starts.

I think I picked poorly for their jobs and aspirations at first. I am about to start the last week and they are not going to max their jobs. I had one guy trying out the acting career. I will probably play through to the end to see how close I can get.
