No, any sim will do. Heck, you could use a brand new CAS Sim if you wanted to, but this challenge allows you to start out with a Sim who already has traits/skills/completed aspirations.
Basically, if there are several different items of the same type that have different stats (“Reliability X”, “Hygiene X”, etc) You have to use the version of the item with the worst stats. If there are several items that are tied for having the worst stats, you can pick from among them, even if the price is different. If items don’t have any stats at all (Like Doors) you can pick from any of them.
No. If your Sim wanders over and starts playing computer games when you aren’t looking just cancel their action. If this becomes probelmatic, consider turning off free will in the Game Options.
The challenge has been written so that people that have and do not have the Outdoor Retreat pack can play it. You may see an object or action that is restricted that you don’t have access to anyway if you don’t own the pack, but the challenge is no more/less difficult either way.
Yes. The managers don’t care about family leave laws. The only exception is if your Sim has the “Professional Slacker” trait, at which point she may keep her job despite going home early.
No. One move-in per generation…at least while the comedian restriction is in place. Once you lift that, you can move in any number of Sims.
Only if you have lifted the Criminal – Oracle restriction.
Yes. You’ll want a few tiles of your 8×8 area to be ‘outdoor’ so you can place those objects.
No, fridges and coolers themselves are still restricted until you unlock the chef restrictions. You also can’t order pizza until e-Sport gamer’s restrictions are lifted.
No. What happened during your founder’s teen years does not matter, and you must have them quit their current job before the challenge begins properly. So even if they were level 10 in a career, it won’t count unless they re-climb the ladder during the challenge.
You are allowed to place and use the objects you earn naturally, but you may not purchase additional copies of them until Tech Guru is lifted.
None, the two terms are interchangeable.
