Prosperity Challenge

The Prosperity Challenge’s rules can be found at

The gist of the challenge is to have a prospering community that all grows/ages in step with each other – surviving for 5 generations. Since I’ve always focused on an individual family – and then become bored when the first generation has “done it all”, I’m giving the prosperity challenge a go as something with a completely different playstyle.

There’s a useful “Random Family Generator” and “Random Transition to Teen Generator” at ModTheSims2 –, which can reduce the number of dice rolls in the beginning to one (to determine the number of starting families).

I also like the Fake Name Generator at for generating sim names, especially for the initial families. I get very stale/repetitive in the names I come up with otherwise…this ensures some variability/interesting names.
