About

Welcome to my second Sims 3 Who’s Your Daddy Challenge blog.  Why a second WYD Challenge blog, you ask? Well, because I failed at my first.  Blargh.  Moving on!

What is this challenge about?  Well, the basic point is to have a female Sim give birth to and bring up 26 children, each with different fathers.  I am playing by stircraxy‘s ruleset, which she adapted from CSquared‘s original ruleset from TS2.  You can read stircraxy‘s ruleset here, and CSquared‘s ruleset here.  I chose this challenge because it seems fairly cheerful (I spent like…two minutes doing an asylum challenge and thought “OH NO! Everyone’s going to die!”), and because I’m hoping the play file won’t be as prone to glitch as those wonderful 10-generation legacy files.  Yeah.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy my second attempt at a WYD Challenge, but if you like it at all you should thank my readers–their comments and suggestions led to the inclusion of my failed WYD Challenge mother in this story as a supportive character, and to the strategy that might help me actually make it through this time.  To navigate, just look at the tabs underneath the header image.  Information about my challenge mother and her offspring, as well as general scorekeeping can be found on my Challenge Status page.  If you want to start from the beginning, just visit the Table of Contents page.

As always, thanks for reading, and I would love to hear from you so please feel free to comment.

    I’m sorry the other one didn’t work out! She was such a character. But I’m glad you’re starting another one.

    Thanks for the comments on my site!
    They were very helpful, and encouraging!

    When I first posted it, I was thinking that it may be a tad too long.
    And yes, when the pictures come in to play, it will be way more visually accessable and fun!

    I am glad everyone liked the start!

    This was the only post that wouldn’t have pictures-it was purely for the benefit of a back-story!

    So, with the positive feedback I got, I will be posting the first entry, (with pictures!!!) this weekend.

    I hope you check back then!

    And I do just love your blog!

    I just found your story today and it is fascinating. I was sorry to see it come to an end and can’t wait for the next chapter. I am amazed at how well you have managed with no job. How are you handing the kids and babysitters? I hate the drudge of Sims going to work when there are so many other fun things they can do so being able to live without working sounds like such fun.

      Katy: I’m glad you like it! Thank you for reading and commenting. 🙂

      When I moved Ophelia into Sunset Valley, I put her on a small or medium-sized lot and built her house with cheap decor and furniture. So she had a few thousand left over from that. I also had her poach Prudence’s money trees and life fruit. In the meantime, she was fishing and gardening, and those hobbies can bring in some decent money on their own. When her money trees started bearing fruit, it was pretty easy to keep her in money! She really hasn’t been hurting for it at all (certainly not like my first WYD mother, Prudence Breedgood–she had a really hard time). I didn’t want her to be too overwhelmed, so I let Arthur grow up a bit before she had another child–I just didn’t realize that her pregnancy would yield twins! She takes care of them, but Arthur is old enough to help out now and before he was a teen he could help out by cleaning the house. According to the WYD challenge rules, Ophelia can’t hire a babysitter herself–Arthur could hire one for her, but I’ve never needed her to use one, so I haven’t taken advantage of that yet.
