Download The Rules If You Prefer Here (easier to read, NO ADFLY)

In this challenge you have one sim collecting everything to fill up all the collections, save one piece of each thing you find. So you at the end, turn the house to a museum and upload it to the gallery.

Quick Start!
⦁ Put Life span on Normal
⦁ Young adult
⦁ Nature Aspiration, any career. Any traits.
⦁ Move to any lot you want as long as it´s empty, make sure you can fit a museum at the end.
⦁ Give the lot three traits
⦁ Start to collect

  • Start with:
    ⦁ Put Life span on Normal
    ⦁ A young adult, any gender. If you get one from the gallery make sure it´s a sim with with no skills or extra traits.
    ⦁ Give your sim Nature Aspiration. Pick any Career of Angling Ace, Freelance Botanist, Outdoor Enthusiast, The Curator. You can change the Career during the game, BUT NOT the aspiration. Give the Founder the traits, an extra plus is to use for it to get them randomly. BUT DON`T give your sim the trait Cleptomanic.
  • ⦁ Move your sim in to a empty lot, you are allowed to evict a family and then demolish the house. However you are not allowed to move later so make sure you pick a good size on the lot so you can fit your future museum on it. Dont build the museum to early so your bills get to high in the beginning.
    ⦁ You start the game with 0 Simoleons, use ”Testingcheats on” and then ”Money 0” cheat to get 0 Simoleons.
    ⦁ Pick three Lot Traits and stay with them thru the challenge.
    ⦁ Your sim is not allowed to get any job, but can sell stuff buy crafting. However there is some special rules on woodwork and paintings. More about that later.
    ⦁ Your sim is of course allowed to get married and have children. Children is important if you need a heir later in the game. Even that heir is of course allowed to get married and have children, but of course with the same rules as the founder had. Don´t forget when children age up to Teen give them Nature Aspiration to be able to be the heir. And more fun is to use for the traits.
    ⦁ The Spouse can´t get added directly from the gallery. The founder have to meet and ask the spouse to ”Move in”. Before Spouse moves in check your Simoleons and write the sum down to remember. When Spouse has moved in you need to delete the Spouse Simoleons, use the cheats ”Testingcheats on” and then ”Money (the sum you wrote down earlier” cheat to get ”The Founders Original Simoleons”. When your spouse moves in, make the spouse quit the job if she/he got one.
    ⦁ You are not allowed to control the Spouse and children, not even when the children is young adults or adults. BUT if you risk to loose your children you have to do what they need to fix that (Newborn – Teen) like feed them if they starv or skiped school to much. The spouse and children are not allowed to work or collect. The heir takes over as soon as your founder dies. The heir must share the same genes as the founder, so NO adoption or sim that has moved in. You are allowed to have as many children and pets you want, the oldest living child is the heir. But no one can move out!
    ⦁ Your Founder can have children from Vampires and Aliens, BUT these childreen can´t be the heir.
    ⦁ The Founder, your sim, is the only one you controll and do all collecting with. BUT when your sim need to travel to Granit Falls or Selvadorada the whole family must come too.
    ⦁ During the challenge you need to buy the Chemical Analyzer, buy and build a Rocket , buy the Microscope and adopt a Cat. And of course whatever else you need.
    ⦁ To be able to get a Cat you must adopt. There is two ways to do so. Adopt by phone cost 200 Simoleons but you in this challenge also need 1000 simoleons added to these 200. So you need 1200 Simoleons to get a cat. Two cats 2400 Simoleons .. No special rule to get a dog. It´s a cat you need to get the feathers.
    ⦁ If the other household members somehow get any collectible in there inventory, just sell them and enjoy the cash.
    ⦁ If you got the expansion SEASONS, you should start in the SPRING with your founder so he/she wont freeze to death. That way you got time to get a house before Winter.

The Collection
In this challenge is a special rule. Every first item of each thing you find you must save, you are not allowed to sell that piece. So the item you save is going to be showcased in the museum later. When you get copies you can of course sell them to be able to survive.

If Founder dies

  • ⦁ If founder dies before the heir is born THE CHALLENGE ENDS
    ⦁ If founder dies when the heir is a baby/toddler/child the other parent (the Spouse) steps in until the heir reach the age of teen. The Teen must continue school and do the collecting on free time. But until the heir is a teen the other parent (the Spouse) gets controlled but is only allowed to look after the garden to get simoleons to survive. But are only allowed to harvest, water, take weed of and spray to get rid of insects.
    ⦁ The other Parent (the Spouse) are not allowed to make new plants or plant any plants.
    ⦁ The heir is of course allowed to get a spouse and get their own heir, and so on …
    ⦁ So a good thing is to get a heir early in case of the founders death, a garden is good to get early too.
    ⦁ And of course the Spouse is not allowed to get remarried.


If the Heir dies

When Founder is dead and if the heir dies too without a heir itself, the heir´s oldest sibling takes over. The Sibling must already live in the household. If there is no sibling, the Game Is Over!


If the Spouse dies

If the spouse dies the founder is allowed to get a new one if she/he likes to. In the same way as the first one, ask to ”Move in”


The Challenge Ends
When all collections are filled and you made your lot to a working museum. Use what you want to make the museum as long as your sim can afford it.
