@LiliLiliLili With fewer EPs, I don't think your old save will work at all. You can try, though, because it's been well over 10 years since the one time I tried something of the sort, so I might not be remembering correctly.

However, if you already had bugs, it might be better to start again with clean, empty templates, the whole thing - it's a pain to set up, but considering how long a ToT hood needs to be able to run, it's worth it.
If you want to keep your progress, you can try cloning your sims in SimPE and recreate everything in the new hood. Also a long process, but depending on how advanced in the challenge you are and how attached you are to your sims, it might be a good solution.

I just thought about the last method today!

But it is indeed too time consuming and I'm not really a pro... I'll need to keep track of them more, so I can't remake them 100%... I mean the family tree, I haven't a way in SimPE to check family trees, just households.

I think I might make a new... Because well I have different CC and such... I can make it better this time and different

I actually remade my sims 2 founders in sims 3. Or at least, based on them, because I changed the clothing style and don't really modified their facial structure. :/ I might come up with some color scheme for every household to distinguish them. I think it is much easier to create clothing in sims 3 and I can even copy them with mastercontroller to different outfit categories. Much easier.
I hope I can manage it with the story progression mod.

@Frogsnack Thanks so much for replying so quickly! If you don't mind uploading, I love to check out your SP settings in game. So far I've picked my world-Cottonwood Hills which is an empty version of Sunset Valley. I plan on adding community lots appropriate for the different eras as I move through generations. I've created my five families and played almost a sim week with one family as of now. I decided to go with TS2 aging which was easy to set up. My Neanderthals will have a fairly short life span because honestly I'd like to get through the first era as fast as possible, I have it set to 75 sim days. Weekly rotation seemed like the easiest to keep track of so I'll stick to that as well.
I've disabled break ups and marriages, for now I'm just allowing boyfriend/girlfriends and will introduce marriage in the Roman Era. My sims can still cheat though
I've allowed non active sims to get pregnant but I'm not sure if I'll keep it just yet. There's already been 3 births in my non active families and 1 birth in my active household and can you believe they all had BOYS?! LOL! I really like the idea of having specific lifetime rewards for the different castes. The whole Nraas caste system is still a bit confusing to me but I'm trying to figure it out because I know how helpful it will be as time progresses and more sims are added to the mix.


Hey-- sorry! I've not been simming a whole lot lately as I became a Realtor recently and there are essentially no days off when starting this kind of business. I do want to make a video about how the caste system is set up, but I had some issues when filming it, I'll tag you somewhere when I finally get that together.

But I did get some time to play this week and I found my TOT settings (there are three columns down, it's from a spreadsheet);

Settings Overview for TOT!

Also my rule variants;


Also random update as I'm playing now, Shravan Edificae (I renamed him as his son is the current head, Brennan Edifice)
Shravan's wife is Ambrosia, they have five kids in the house; Livius, Iolius, Savan, Maral and Sargis. Sravan collects gems and cuts them to sell to the wealthy at the consignment shop (but if I had any idea of how I could make him work for a higher family without moving him out of his house I would). He also owns three items that could get him sent to the games; two gems over 1k and a bookshelf, but he's taking risks as he has something like 36 kids and grandkids and he's lived a pretty good life.

(also as naming people is my favorite part of this challenge, the newest babies in this tribal family are called Dilshad and Bahadur <3)+

@LiliLiliLili I lvoe your set up for the houses it's so cute! Small lots too, that should be fun soon

Thanks.

But I just had a big spring cleaning session in my personal harddrive, I made decisions and stuff, so now I will not play sims 3 for some time, at least that setup as I deleted lots of things taking up several GBs. These are the times when you realize you also have duplicate pictures and childhood computer drawings consisting of scribble lines saved....... It is because I plan to put everything to DVDs in case every hard drive becomes damaged. And they said we don't have enough of them to put all of my GBs on it and I would not need most contents in the future. I also deleted Sims content. Before deleting most of my Sims backups and CCs too, I managed to get into the Sims 2 hoods! I was suprised the house remodels I did and new houses! I was at gen 2, however I cheated a bit with aging up them early. There are some babies (gen3) too. The game ran very slow due to graphics problem, but now I've uninstalled it. With just few EP it runs smoothly, though, so maybe I could play with those in a clean save in the future. So I got into the newly installed very slow game with every old save and tons of CC just to look around and take lots of pictures for future reference... But I also sorted them out and deleted most of them, so it is not much. Now, on topic, I show you the TOT hood's documentations.

The first pic is about the gen 2 couples and if they already had kids, them.
The next pictures are old house layouts, then after each of them the new ones I probably made around september 2016. (10 pictures) Poor Visking household's house is still the same. I don't know why I didn't remodel it, maybe I waited for something? Most of the updates were accomplished because some founders died and I got a lot of inheritance.
Then the next are the new houses. I figured I would actually have just 10 houses, because if I were to play longer then the remaining to-be married people would live in some founder houses.
The last picture is about the non-old age death sims. I ressurected them with insimenator just for the pictures.

Hey people!
Just so you know, I've finally gotten around to creating a site for my ToTC. The link is in my signature.
Updates should be on Fridays, at least until the end of June.

I found this challenge a couple of years ago, but was too scared to try it out. I've been looking for some new things to try on the sims 2, and I can't wait to start this challenge

Saw this challenge a few days ago and decided I wanted to try it. I love history, especially the ancient variety. So I have started with the old Stone Age. Changed a few things. No farming, since that didn't start till later. Only foraging, hunting and fishing allowed. And I started with 16 sims, a group of four for each skin tone, though I have used mostly custom skins, all of which are geneticized. I put each group of four on a lot and let them decide who would partner whom. I have played all four groups two days each so far and so far they have not left their lots to hunt or fish but have managed to forage enough fruit and herbs to keep from starving. almost all of the couples are already pregnant and the first one has delivered. They each have a small cave to sleep in and shelter from the sun. they have a waterfall shower and a bush toilet, plus a midden for refuse. I use the simstone rock refrigerator and a campfire grill for cooking. No other appliances. Hay beds, pallets on the floor for babies, rocks and tree stumps for other furniture. It's been a blast building the lots but I hope it does not get boring. Skill building will be very difficult without books and the various hobbie items. And a couple of them are already dipping into the red on the aspiration meter, both fortune sims. No wants except make money and buy stuff. I do use a number of hacks, including ACR and Inge's teleporter bush. I am using the teleporter to get rid of the npcs as soon as they deliver their product. Have no townies or social groupies thanks to empty templates. I expect this to be very interesting and entertaining.

Have completed 4 days of play and all 8 women have given birth with a resulting 11 infants. One set of twins and one set of triplets. The twins are doing okay but the triplets are hungry most of the time. I am using BO's nursing hack but it only allows the mother to feed the infants. No wet nursing allowed. Of course in real life multiple infants would probably not have survived. Four of the infants have transitioned to toddler and their mothers are already expecting again, two of them by a different man. No marriage yet. And no expressed jealousy. I have my time progression set at 2 days = 1 year. So infants become toddlers after two days, child in 8 more days, teen in 14 days and adult in 14 days. Pregnancy lasts only 36 hours.

Have nearly completed Day 7, with 5 pregnancies completed in the second round of births, with three to go. Six babies so far, with 11 toddlers, most of them still crawling. Have discovered that toddlers can forage for their own food to a certain extent. Plumbbob Keep has a lot of mods suitable to the Stoneage Era. Seasonal fruit trees, vegetables, berry bushes, herbs, etc. Hunting and trapping are also available. The toddlers are able to pick up and eat fruit that has fallen from the fruit trees. I am endeavoring to play without any bottles and so far succeeding. I do use the Simstone high chair in order to feed the little ones too, but with more and more toddlers arriving the parents are having to spend more and more time caring for them. Ah, yes, the little ones can bathe themselves too. PBK has an item called Bathing Instincts which was designed for dogs but toddlers can use it too. If you're not familiar with PBK, here's the addy; http://www.medievalsims.com/forums/viewforum.php?f=240 . This takes you to Sun & Moon's Star Factory, the section where all these goodies reside. Made by Sunni and Fractured Moonlight. You will also find items that will spawn creatures for pets to hunt and eat so your sims don't have to feed them. And wild bee hives. And all sorts of crafting stations for your sims to learn through the ages.
