~ The history of through the ages
The history challenge is a very old sims 3 and 4 challenge first made by Snowie, then by CloudSeeker, with score sheets and word documents. This history challenge looks at different parts of history from all over time and places, starting with the stone age going through to the Future tech era. Then I found The Great British Sim challenge by EmersedCrown, which has a similar concept. This challenge goes through British history for 12 generations and looks only at the British timeline. This challenge also takes inspiration from the decades challenge and the rags to this challenge, however there are so many versions I couldn’t not find any clear original copy to link in.
~ Who am I?
I am first and foremost a mummy, beyond that I am a female in the UK who LOVES gaming! I run a Youtube channel Gaming with Char, where I play different games, however sims 4 guides and challenges dominate lol. I also run a website Gamingwithchar.com where you can find all things sims 4 related, at some point in the future I hope to add other games like the sims 3, ark, minecraft tutorials/guides. Helping others is a passion and I hope one day (when I reach the sweet 4000 watch hours) to be able to do this full time as my job.
~ What you can expect from Through the Ages!
So here I am and I can’t wait to get started, I will be playing through each era before writing the next generation. I want to make sure that generations move forward in a way that feels natural and does not become repetitive or too easy (or hard).
This challenge is designs to go through eras rather than generations so you could easily make this a 100 generation challenge as well. The era finishes when the goals are completed rather than when a new baby is born.
The first era is the Stone age and so this will be broken into two parts: the Emergence of the SIMS (this will be more a rag to liveable life), then the agriculture stage of the challenge)which will focus on getting a farm together). This I feel will give more story to the challenge.
You can also expect to go through every skill, aspiration and career in the sims 4 form all packs. If you do not have all the packs that is ok move on to the next goal, there should be a good mix so everyone can do something in all the eras.
There will also be Stories, Deaths and Events in all eras, if you don’t fancy doing something that is fine, move on, everything is colour coded, which is explained below, so if something is upsetting or you just don’t want to do it, I repeat just move on! Lol.
~ Colour Coded Events!
Story ~ I am hoping to add in small story elements that may or may not be followed; they will be clearly lined out in a different colour of text.
Death ~ There Will be wars and plagues as well as Toddler, Child, Teen and mother deaths. No one is safe in these early eras, if any of these things will upset people then just miss them, this also goes for packs that you may not have, just leave those goals and aspirations. I will go through every single pack with what suits each era.
There are also events that will happen in each era that will also cause death. using mods like mc command will greatly help. but if you cannot for any reason use mods then you can use cheats to delete dead sims. hold CTRL, SHIFT & C type ‘testingcheats on’ hit enter then type another cheat ‘cas.fulleditmode’ this will allow you to delete sims in cas mode as you would when creating a new family.
Events ~ Events are things that may occur during each era, for instance in the stone age you will get the event Wolves, where your sims will have to fight off a pack of wolves, if they win you will lose all fish you have gathered.
There isn’t a scoring system, the one challenge that uses an in depth scoring system is the History Challenge. I found it hard to maintain filling it out and it is frustrating when you finish a generation and realise you haven’t tracked anything so I don’t have one for this one. However if YOU want a scoring system then you could do a point for every goal you complete.
