Here is a fun almost apocalypse challenge. I don't like the apocalypse rules, but I wanted to limit myself in some way so my new legacy would be challenging yet entertaining for me to play. Basically, it boils down to your sims progressing through the ages. If anything is unclear please ask and I'll try to clarify. I'm still testing these rules. It's mostly designed as a community challenge, and I would recommend starting your shopping districts and downtowns with a blank slate. It is also recommended you start your neighborhood with a blank slate.

Only the founder, heirs, and spares may lift restrictions. Aspiration rewards are lifted by having the requisite number and/or type of platinum gravestones. Career restrictions are lifted once a sim reaches the top of career.

*Aspiration rewards:

Money Tree: Free

Noodlesoother: One platinum gravestone of any type

Senso Orb: One platinum Popularity, Pleasure, Family, Knowledge, Romance, and Wealth gravestone (in other words every platstone except grilled cheese)

Weather Machine: Two Platstones of any type

Smart milk: One Family platstone

Cool Shades: One Popularity platstone

Kibble of life: Three platstone of any type

Energizer: One Grilled Cheese Platstone (in other words, one of every single kind since you need all others to make a grilled cheese sim)

Thinking Cap: One Knowledge Platstone

Sim O Vac: One Pleasure Platstone

Love Tub: One Romance Platstone

Counterfeiting machine: One Wealth Platstone

Elixer of Life: Four Platstones of any type.

*Alien Gifts:

Whenever a sim is abducted by aliens, regardless of age or gender, you may pick one restricted item and place it on the abducted sim's home. this may include restricted career rewards, aspiration rewards, or anything from buy mode. Once the item (if an aspiration reward) is used up, delete it. If it is from buy mode and it ever breaks, you may not fix it until science is lifted (You may keep it around until science is lifted, or you may delete it. You may only place one and only one item per abduction. If you are unable to afford any restricted items, you miss out on your gift from the aliens)


1, Culinary: No stoves or any other appliances can be purchased. Restaurant stoves may be placed on community lots, but only cereal and chef salad may be eaten at restaurants. Wedding cakes and champagne may not be purchased from the party menu. Sims may not open restaurants on community lots. (you may still have non player owned restaurants)

2, Slacker: Nothing from the party menu may be purchased or placed on community lots, with the exception of birthday cakes for infants. Parties of any kind cannot be thrown. Scored outings are prohibited. Sims may still go on dates, and unscored outings. (Once this restriction is lifted, you may place the slacker career reward even if adventurer is not yet lifted)
