I played TS2 version of Bachelor Challenge back in 2007 following rules by PA Vicky. And when I decided to play it again, I found erin836891 and KaintheSlayer converted the rules for TS3. But as the one who already has played the TS2 version, I needed some changes. Because although I like the idea of dance racing and such, some daily missions (such as chess date) were quite boring when I played it before.
So, I asked awesome people here in Tumblr for elimination ideas and borrowed their creativity. I’ve also added my own ideas which were totally inspired by my all time favorite reality show Flavor of Love. And I even watched I Love New York again while waiting the contestants sims arrived in my inbox ;D
Therefore, I guess the rules I follow now is quite mix and match. I made an archive page to organize them, but haven’t posted all daily missions yet. Because some of them are actually surprises :D
And, the most significant rule change I made was to set the elimination time flexible. The original time is everyday at 12pm, but it will vary in my game depending on the mission of the day. Since sims have such a slow response time, which will be even worse with 20 sims, some mission can be proceeded for more than one day.
Also, always, the one with the lowest relationship score with the bachelorette is eliminated, unless the daily mission itself generate loser(s). In the case of a tie, the one who has more friends will be survived.
NOTE: (1) The relationships in TS3 grow slower than the ones in TS2. (2) I bought ‘Long Distance Friend’ lifetime reward for Dunder so she doesn’t need to worry about decreasing or static relationship scores. (3) I bought ’No Jealousy’ reward too.
