DECADES CHALLENGE

I found a challenge I would like to try in Sims 4.

Post on YouTube!

DECADES CHALLENGE

*Please note, I didn’t come up with this!!!!*


I’ve just started making and playing my decades challenge on YouTube and the rules are too long for the description box. I figured here would be the perfect place to put them so I can link to them. It’s still a work in progress (particularly the last 3 decades), but here goes.

You start in the 1890’s (I downloaded a bunch of appropriate clothing just to add to the feel) and I wanted to show the changing world in real time, which means the challenge starts out with some limits to marriage in regards to race and gender. You can totally choose to ignore those and any other rules, these are just the things I am playing with. Each new decade starts with the children growing into young adults (or teens if you prefer)

1890’s
May only marry within their ethnicity
