Some people say opposites attract and I wonder….do they really? Even in Sims un-reality?

Setting up:

Create 2 Young Adult Sims in CAS: 1 Male, 1 Female. They can look and wear whatever you like, but you can make them look very opposite from one another for authenticity….(i.e. One fat, one thin or one blonde, one brunette, one well-dressed and groomed and the other slobbish and grungy - you get the idea)

Assign traits to each Sim that are Opposite (Incompatible with) to the other Sim. This list will help you. (NOTE: Not all traits have opposites)

Artistic , Can't Stand Art
Athletic , Couch Potato
Brave , Coward/Loser
Can't Stand Art , Artistic
Charismatic , Loser
Childish , Dislikes Children
Commitment Issues , Hopeless Romantic

See if you can make their LTW opposite as well (Like Top of Law enforcement VS Crime lord etc)
Move them into a house or lot of your choice (Largest lots will also add financial strain as a challenge)
They must live together (Do not set relationship to Spouse or Sibling) and build a life together.

Game play:

First things first…The restrictions!
1.No cheats or behavior changing Mods allowed. (Except to reset a bugged Sim and building cheats like move objects)
2.You may not ‘change your traits’ or have a ‘Midlife Crises’
3.You must accept and complete all Skill and Work opportunities offered to you. Special Opportunities are optional and up to you)
4.No Divorce / Separation / move out’s or Till death do you parts – If any of these happen (and you didn’t save) you will have to start over.
5.No kids may be removed by the social worker
6.No other Sims may move-into the household

  1. No, the points won't be affected at all if two sims make friends and the two friends dislike each other.
