2020.7 Townie Baby Boomer 1

This is the mid-season major for 2020, so it is a little longer but in game time and in real time. This is all about the babies. Everyone gets one, or two, or three…

Townie Baby Boomer

May 11 to June 14

Goal: This year the team is offering a unique take on the forum’s most popular annual event, Baby Boomer — this time it’s not your Sim pumping out the nooboos, it’s the townies. 

Scoring

New Babies: At the end of the game, note the number of new Sims added as babies. Give yourself 1 point for each new sim added as a baby.


Nora Lang welcomes you to the Townie Baby Boomer. She is only here long enough to open the game, and then she will be deleted and the challenge started. Nora was also the placeholder sim for the Pancakes Invasion. Maybe eventually, one day, she will be chosen for more. But today is not that day.


Nora is moved into an empty lot and promptly deleted. As I look at Manage Households, it is time to choose the first household. Since there isn’t a lot of playing involved here – it is all about giving them new babies by pregnancy or adoption, I am going to approach this more as a list of who moved, who stayed, and babies added to the household.

A couple of quick points:

  • Only original premade townies that exist in homes (no homeless)
  • Fill Empty Homes – unchecked
  • Townies must be played as-is, no changes to gender or life state
  • Each household can only be played once
  • No changing partners after TFB or Adoption
  • Limit of 2 adoptions per household
  • Only Young Adult and older can be moved
  • Teens and younger + pets must stay in their original home
  • Each sim can only move once.

When playing a household, I set the lot trait to On Ley Line and Romantic Aura, got the couple to Lovebirds and Married, then tried for baby (opposite sex couples). Then, they adopted the first baby, each parent made Good Friends with the baby, adopted the second baby, and moved to the next household. The goal was to minimize the time in each household in order to complete all 51 couples. If this goes to plan, Ekram and Eleanore Elderberry will be the only sims not played, and they will be dead by the time I finally get to their house. All elders were matched up with either Young Adult or Adult; any household with teens won’t be played until week 3 when they should all have aged to Young Adult. Children and toddlers are ignored. Jesminder has the only pregnancy when the challenge starts. It will be necessary to get to her house before her baby becomes a toddler.

About Teresa 946 Articles
I have been playing Sims since August 2005; a member, then a moderator, and now an admin of Boolprop.net since October 2006. My sister is the one that hooked me on Sims in the beginning. She had all of the original Sims games and one week while I was on vacation I took her games and started playing. That was the beginning of my obsession. I played Sims 1 for about a month and then decided to buy Sims 2. When Sims 3 was released I made the move and have never looked back. Now I am all in on Sims 4 and still loving it.
