after playing for several weeks now I finally decided on a rules or rather guidelines for play.
your objective is to raise 50 happy healthy foster children. there are 2 ways to get these foster children at the start up you can either adopt them or bring them from the gallery when creating you caretakers.
- to start you will need one or 2 caretakers for your foster children you may create them get them from the gallery use a sim from another game you are playing these caretakers can come from just about anywhere.
- after you create your caretakers if you are using cas you may then use the random gallery option to bring in child sims you will need several to get started I did not set a limit as you know how many sims you can handle at a time
- when you are ready to choose your home you may use free realestate on cheat to pick a home of your choosing your home can come from the gallery if you so choose but it needs to be able to hold your family you may also build it
- if you did not get your children from the gallery then you must now adopt them here you can start with babies if you like
- you may only age up children upon receiving an a in school or completing their aspiration
- you may age teens up only when achieving an a in school or completing a teen job
- you may choose your traits or use a random trait generator I use the one designed by pinstar for the legacy challenge here is a way to access the random trait generator
- as for cheating I have cheated needs but not money but it is your game so play as you will because at the end of theday the object is to have fun
