Spoiler:
Education is going to be one of my generation 3 lifts, because the rules I use say that teens can't go to college until Military and Education are lifted so the gen four kids will get college which means I can knock out the four Uni careers with them. Anyway, nice update. ^^

Spoiler:
I should plan my lifts more, but I'm mostly just going with the first option they get, haha. Except I needed more space, so I really needed either Law or Architecture in this generation. And since I think education is more important than journalism...

Spoiler:
I reread my Apocalypse last night and remembered I used the Apoca-Borg rules last time and that was what I was remembering this time. I'm going to try to get my lifts sort of planned out although it seems my new Apocalypse wants to follow the way I went with my first one. Generation 4 in my last Apocalypse did the Education lift so Gen 5 could go to college, this time I'm doing it a generation earlier. And no losing my founders this time either, which is weird for me. :lol: Of course none of that matters if I don't get my second second gen 2 kid born...I still need to find a spouse for the next heir before I can call the Gen.1 lifts done.

Finally caught up with updates!

Spoiler:
Sad to see Komei has passed on. At least he died a platinum death, which is a feat in itself for wealth sims in the early stages of an apocalypse.

Criminal is a good one to get rid of early on, good thing familyfunds makes the process less tedious and decreases the chances of cranky ghosts.

Which restrictions are you thinking of for the next generation? Unfortunate that even though teens can now go to college, they can't lift any of the uni career ones yet. But Intelligence seems like a good choice to better maintain the family friend count.

Spoiler:
I think it might your rules set but I don't remember in any of the Apocalypse that I have read that the sims could move out and lift restrictions in another household. Or did I read it wrong?.

Spoiler:
I was sad to see Komei go as well. And I'm really not sure what lifts to go for. I guess I'll see what LTW get rolled, haha. Maybe thatll help.

Surprisingly, I haven't had too much trouble with the wealth sims! Which is weird. They keep rolling easy wants though, like talk about hobby.

Family funds is a life saver! Ghosts probably would have killed me otherwise!

Spoiler:
no, you read it right. Law let's me move sims out and play them in rotation, lifting restrictions. There are pros and cons. It may take fewer total generations, but I do have to play several households in sync so it takes about the same amount of playtime.

I really do suggest this rule set if you are worried about doing an apocalyspe challenge! It's a much simpler to follow one. I might try a traditional apocalyspe after this one, I kind of feel like it's an apocalyspe on training wheels! Although, I also think it's more friendly towards a story-based apocalypse, if you want to do it that way too.

Thank you for reading!

Spoiler:
Hehe, I can't move them out yet in my Apocalypse Generation 2 has to get those lifts done first. I did add other Sim Bin houses to the neighbourhood though so I do have other houses to go to. I make them follow the restrictions as well, it also give the kids others to play with. It's amusing to see Family sim Mary Gavigan roll a 10 kid want..AHAHA, no. Not in the Apocalypse and your tiny tower. My own founder still wants more babies and he's already got the three he needs. I haven't posted that yet but I'm getting around to it. Poor Juliet though, Kennedy was always the difficult Scorpio I rarely use him in anything. And Dahlia not getting his attention could prove hazardous if she needs to lift Law Enforcement and have to arrest her own father...

Yay! Great update. I can't believe Juliet and Clifford are elders already! Time flies when you're stuck in an Apocalypse! Lol.

Spoiler:
I added all the sim bin families to my downtown. So they'd all have phones and I wouldn't have to deal with that 'you can't call them they don't have a phone!' stuff. I keep meaning to pop in just long enough for Samantha to have that baby...lol. It might be fun to do a play through at some point where you start with a bunch of sim bin families following all the rules...huh...

He really does have a difficult personality, doesn't he? And he always went to socialize with Vincent on his own, but I had to make him do anything with Dahlia.

It goes by so fast! They felt like they went by really fast though. I think because most of their adulthood was just rushing for the top of their careers though.

Poor Kennedy, losing his job just before he was about to get promoted. And then nearly the same thing with Lyndsey but just losing skills but she did it.
