The Sims 4: Single Sim Challenge

Single Sim Challenge

In this challenge, it’s your task to control ONLY ONE Sim from Toddler to Elder. You will have to play as if you cannot control anyone else in your household. You may do anything in your Sims life but the tasks must be complete before aging up. You can complete the tasks in any order. (I would set age span to long unless you really want a challenge)

Before starting the challenge, you need to create a family. My recommendation is 2 parents and a child sibling however you can choose to have 1 parent, no siblings or multiple siblings etc it’s up to you. Then you need to move them into a home worth under $40,000, this can be in any world or neighborhood. I would then recommend getting your parents jobs and cheating them up to level 2 or 3 of that profession. Once you begin the challenge no changes, apart from clothes/hair in CAS, can be made to the family. (Only exception is if you need to debug a sim)

Adult Exceptions (A time where you may control another sim while your Single Sim is a Toddler or Child)

  • Pay Bills
  • Repair Objects (Adults may also hire someone) 
  • Clean (Adults may also hire a maid) 
  • Feed and bathe Pets
  • Put out a fire
  • Make a Birthday Cake

  • Any way of being able to control adults as a toddler only, to make a group serving of a meal (so my toddler can help themselves?)

    Every time my toddler asks for food the sims take FOREVER getting it, putting toddler in and out of high chair and constantly forgetting to get the food. I’ve had 5 instances where I had to “cheat” to avoid being taken away by the social worker!

    • Looks like a cool challenge! The only thing I miss is a dignified end of life. Dye your hair in a wacky colour. How could that be a cool end? xD

      You could also just get rid of that high chair. Sims 2 thought me high chairs in Sims are a pain in the ass. My toddlers eat on the floor. Lol!
