Shades of Blue: 4.0 – Final Tally

Here is the final recap of the challenge.  I started with three of the bonuses, swapped out one for another, then dropped/lost two of them.  I also started with several other mini challenges that I dropped along the way.  The ones listed below are the ones that made it through.  My final total is 52 points.

Base Game (9 points total)

For making a founder with a colourful skin tone and keeping the skin colour in the family until third generation. (3 Points)
Achieving the initial (first teen/adult) aspiration for the founder, heirs, and all spares. You can keep the spares in the household until their aspiration is complete. (3 Points)
For having a gnome to guard your flamingos. He must be accessible to be kicked. Watch for it and don’t lose that gnome! (3 Points)

BoolProp Naming Scheme (10 Points)

Naming the first generation’s three children names that start with B, O and O. The second generation’s children would be given names that start with L, P and R. The third generation’s children would be given names that start with O, P and N (for .net, of course!). If twins are born they count as one letter, tough bananas! Name them both with the letter the one child would have been assigned and then you must have another child. So if I had my first generation heir have a boy that I named Larry, then a set of twins I would name them Peter and Paula, because they only count for one letter, I would then have to have them try for another baby to get a Rachel. Additional children born/adopted whether intentionally or accidentally are considered outside the naming scheme and can be named whatever you want.

The Golden Trio (10 Points)

A generation of your choice must give birth to triplets. You may name each of the babies after a different letter in the naming scheme if you go for this, you are also exempt from the three pregnancy rule that generation. Additional trio rules apply. You must have each triplet max three skills of your choosing as a child, make one best friend and two good friends (outside of the family), and complete the golden trio of getting an A in elementary and high school and reaching the top of their teen career as a teen. They must also each earn at least three positive character value if you have Parenthood installed. Trio = three. And no negative values. Additional children may be born after the triplets, the trio rules do not apply to them. *clarification – the friends and the character traits need to be completed by the end of the teen years, the other requirements need to be completed within the age specified.

Family Scrapbook (10 Points)

Every member of the family must have either their picture taken, portrait painted (paint from reference) and hung somewhere about the house. You can choose the age or do multiple ages, take group shots or individual pictures, it’s up to you. Your house must contain a picture of everyone that has ever lived in the house by the end of the challenge. Also, each generation, starting with the founder, must write one novel, to keep track of the family’s memories. In total four novels must be written: one by the founder and one by each of the three heirs (first gen, second gen, third gen).

On Ley, Not the Lonely (10 Points)

At the beginning of the challenge you must enable the On Ley Line lot trait, and leave it on for the entire challenge. You must woohoo and give birth on your home lot for the entirety of the challenge. Multiple children will only count as one pregnancy and each generation must still have three pregnancies. Each pregnancy will count as one letter if you are doing the Boolprop Naming Theme mini-challenge. Each child born during the challenge will also need to have at least one character trait (positive or negative) upon finishing their teen years.

The one bonus you can do, regardless:
-For finishing the challenge and posting it to the your blog. (3 Points)

The kids can be found under the hashtag #ZaffreOWBC, under my EAID TSmetana, and under their individual full name “Trixie Zaffre”.

About Teresa 1076 Articles
I have been playing Sims since August 2005; a member, then a moderator, and now an admin of 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.
