One of my favorite challenges is the BaCC (Build a City Challenge). It was unique for the sims 2 and though many tried to convert it for the sims 3 and 4 it just wasn’t successful. But now with the cats and dogs patch it seems this may not be able to happen… I am still a noob at sims 4 and with more packs and my knowledge growing these rules are subject to change I thought I would share these with anyone that wanted to give it a go.
Roll a die to determine how many families you will have in town.
1-2 = 1 family
3-4 = 2 families
5-6 = 3 families
Once you figure out how many families you will have roll a die to determine how many sims will be in said family.
1-2 = Single Man
3-4= Single Woman
Once you have all that figured out bulldoze all the lots in Willow Creek. If you want to you can bulldoze all the lots for every world but I wouldn’t worry about that until you unlock that world.
Have aging set to whatever you want, short, normal, long but have it so only active household members age or turn it off completely. You don’t want your other settlers getting old before you really get a chance to play them.
1. No Electronics/plumbing. To start off your sims may not have any
electronics (tv,computer,stereo etc.).
They can have the cheapest fridge and a grill. Bushes to use for the bathroom, 1 sink and 1 bathtub.
Rocket ship cannot be used until electricity is unlocked.
Retail lots cannot be opened until electricity is unlocked.
This restriction is removed when one of the settlers reaches level 10 handiness
2. No Adoption/Pizza/Maid Service etc. Population must be 100 to unlock services.
3. No Hospital Birth. It is unlock when the doctor career is unlocked.
4. No aliens. This restriction is removed when Magnolia Promenade is Unlocked.
5. No Magnolia Promenade. Restriction is removed with 3 retail stores have been opened.
They must all be owned and run by settlers.
6. No cheats.
7. Aspiration may not be changed! Even when you complete an aspiration it must stay the same. If it bugs you that much to see a completed aspiration sitting there then you may change it but it doesn’t count toward anything. In essence 1 aspiration per sim.
Example: Your first aspiration is angling ace. You complete it and that’s awesome then you change your sims aspiration to athletic to complete a goal but that one doesn’t count.
8. Club cannot be joined until you have unlocked Winderburg.
Retail lots are unlocked with electricity.
