    Imagine what happens when you’re a teen with no money, no food, no adult support and you’re responsible for the care younger sibling? You either rise to the occasion or your sibling ends up in the adoption bin.

    This is what the Abandoned Kids Challenge is!

    [​IMG]

    In this challenge you will guide a teenager and their siblings through lives without money and parents.

    :eek: The challenge fails when any child gets taken away from the household or anyone dies.

    :D The challenge succeeds when the last child ages into a teenager.

    Make it work, without losing anyone! Feel free to have your teenager collect collectibles (fish, garden etc.) and sell whatever they can.

    NOTE: They cannot get a Part Time Job until they have a fixed address. This means they must have a house with at least FOUR walls, ONE door, ONE window, ONE toilet, ONE bed and ONE sink.

    [​IMG]

    You’ll begin by creating your household with one or more parents, one teenager and one or more children. You can increase the amount of children in the household to increase the level of difficulty . . . however you can only have one teenager to start.

    - Pick an empty lot and move your family in.

    - The next step is either moving the parents out or killing them off. If you’d like to keep the parents alive you can always create a spare adult sim, move the parents out and then kill off the spare adult sim.

    - Deplete their income to ZERO! CHEAT- sims.modify_funds -[enter amount]

    - Follow the rules listed below (which are customizable depending on how you feel)!

    - Have fun - Stay alive and out of the adoption bin.

    [​IMG]

    - Aging: All aging must occur naturally (no aging up your sims earlier). Depending on how difficult you want it, you can choose to play long, short or medium lifespans.

    - No Cheating: Remember your sims are living in extreme poverty so no cheats unless it’s to repair your game (resetsim & testingcheats to remove money or kill sims etc.).

    - Appliances: Certain appliances require a house (aka you cannot purchase these appliances unless you have at least FOUR walls and a door - - - basements qualify). Just think of it as . . . if you need an "electrical outlet" or "plumbing" it requires four walls and a door (computers/tvs/stoves/toilets etc). The exception is of course portable items or things created with the woodworking bench.

    - Travel: Try not to travel to community lots etc. without all of your household Sims. The game refreshes/maxes their needs and this may take away from the challenge. Just think of it as, you wouldn’t leave your defenseless sibling alone!

    - Neighbors: Certain neighbor facilities are off limits until you reach a certain relationship level with them. These facilities are unlocked for the entire household – unless that sim has a negative relationship with that neighboring house.
    Just think of it as, you need to be "good friends" with someone before you go in using their shower etc. They wouldn't take just anyone in off the streets. This is optional of course (pick and choose your own), but it may make things interesting!


    FRIENDSHIP LEVEL Unlocks

    :handshake:

    - Disliked - Hated: Cannot use anything in this sims house.

    - Friend: Stove, BBQ, fridge unlocked.

    - Good Friend: Shower unlocked

    - Best Friend: Bed unlocked & Garden – help yourself


    ROMANCE LEVEL Unlocks

    :burningheart2:

    - Lovebirds : Stove, BBQ, fridge unlocked

    - Lovers/Girlfriend-Boyfriend/Sweetheart : Shower Unlocked

    - Soulmates or “Promised” : Garden - Help Yourself & Bed Unlocked (If the game allows - you may use the bed to “mess around” prior to this point, but the sim must not use the bed to sleep)

    GOOD LUCK!
    Remember

    Alllll done!

    Here's my challenge experience.

    I'd assume my play was "medium" difficulty.
    I played with only one child in the household, with Outdoor retreat installed (I don't know how I would have fared without all those objects haha) and on long life span.

    When I did the challenge none of mine died or got taken away... I Started out with 5000 simolens because they were going to be for her "college funds" that they gave her to start adding too but when they left them, she decided to spend it on a little home for her and her two siblings. ;)
