 THE "RUNAWAY TEEN CHALLENGE" --- Welcome to one of the best challenges out there... the "RUNAWAY TEEN CHALLENGE"!

[ CREDIT MUST BE GIVEN: A link directly to this challenge ( which should begin with: http://sims4challengesrules.blogspot.com ) must be displayed on any page you post this (since I have reformated, tweaked, added  Difficulty Levels to this challenge, + change/added the point system etc.: thereby creating this version of  the Challenge).

[ Just as you give me credit, I'm giving credit to the creators of the previous versions of this challenge. For the Sims 3 version: StardustX , + For The Sims 4 Version (without points + Difficulty Levels): @Rainydayz179

*********************************
 INTRO: 
*********************************

( In This Version: I have specially created , Difficulty Levels, + points and changed a few things to either make it flow better, or make it more/less challenging where needed. )


The goal is to survive: You are simply trying to survive + start a "good" life for yourself.

You should aim for having a "high paying job" (a level 7,8,9,10), children (at least 2) and a "big house" (at least: 1 kitchen, 3 bedrooms, and 2 bathrooms). The main thing you are doing is getting money the old way by fishing, gardening and collecting... oh, and of course, searching the neighborhood for free food. Getting married is optional for this challenge.

*********************************
 STARTING OUT: 
********************************* 
  • Make your "main" Sim. (They shouldn't look glamorous... they should look like a runaway.) 

  • * You can have any traits, but not one that will help you (like "loves the outdoors") Also, Potion traits, purchased traits, other unnatural traits, or anything that changes moods unnaturally ARE NOT allowed.


  • * Start off on a lot that is 20x15 or more.


  • * Set your money to $0 (UPDATE 11/2/14) : Simply use this money cheat for Sims 4 (everything written in purple): 1st hold down the Shift Ctrl + C buttons to open up the cheat box at the top left corner of your game screen, then type: 

  • Next, enter the following cheat into the box: money 0 
      For Specialist + Legendary Difficulty Levels Only
    (seen toward the bottom of this page)...  
       You'll need to make your "main" Sim's baby-sister/baby-brother also at this point
    . They shouldn't look glamorous... they should look like a runaway. They also shouldn't look like your "main" Sim (unless they're Twins of course) For this Sim as well, you can have any traits, but not one that will help you (like "loves the outdoors") Also, Potion traits, purchased traits, other unnatural traits, or anything that changes moods unnaturally ARE NOT allowed.].

      (Creating The Teen's Parent --- optional ) ---> 

    You Can Choose To Skip This Section If Your Game Allows You To Simply Create Your Teen Sim {and optionally teen/child sibling}, and go to  the following section called "Rules"... please note, though, some Simmers find this Parent section to be very fun as well, even if it's unnecessary.  Others may feel it adds to the realism of this challenge....so it's your choice.
    • Make the Sim's guardian/parent however you want, it doesn't matter, so don't put too much work at all into it, since they'll have to be killed off as soon as the game begins. (The reason they need to be created at all, is that the game won't let you make a teen-only household- (UPDATE 11/2/14: this also makes it so you CAN'T simply edit them out as I stated previously before this update.)


    • You MUST kill the Sim's guardian/ parent as soon as the game starts SO HERE'S HOW --->> 

    (UPDATE 11/2/14): Here's the new way, the old way didn't work correctly ---> You'll have to enter this cheat which IS ALLOWED (everything written in purple) 1st hold down the Shift Ctrl + C buttons to open up the cheat box at the top left corner of your game screen, then type: 

      testingcheats true

      Next, enter the following cheat into the box


      sims.add_buff buff_Death_ElderExhaustion_Warning


      { Tip: Suggested by Audrey who commented below: Also, make sure you have your parent selected... You don't want to kill your teen! :o }

      PLEASE NOTE: You MUST SPELL IT EXACTLY AS-IS...  for example, there IS a space between "_buff" and "buff_",  and there is NO space between anything else, even  "_ElderExhaustion_"

      IMPORTANT: That'll make the parent die almost immediately, however this also causes any Sims in the family to become sad. Therefore, please DO NOT count this sadness when tallying up your points at the end of the challenge.  (UPDATE   4/10/15 -- suggested by Audrey who commented below) :  

      Tip: To get rid of the sad moodlet, after above code is done... use:

      sims.remove_all_buffs

    *********************************
      THE RULES: 
    *********************************

      ( Again... In This Version: I have specially created , Difficulty Levels, + points and changed a few things to either make it flow better, or make it more/less challenging where needed. )
      --- 

       (What You MUST or ARE ALLOWED To Do)  
      • Lifespan must be set to "normal" (default).
      • Aging must be on.
      • Your Sim MUST start as a teen
      • You CAN shower and use the bathroom at any public place, like the gym, for example.
      • You CAN'T go to school. You have to "cancel" the going to school action each day. This will not effect traits.
      • Yes, you MAY use the resetSim  cheat if your Sim gets "stuck" in an interaction, or somewhere around town
      •  Only If your social meter gets low...  you CAN interact with children or other teens, but NOT adults.
      • Garden pots/ Garden Planter Boxes, Easels ARE Allowed even before your Sim becomes a young adult and have a home (at least 1 kitchen, 1 bedroom, + 1 bath ). Those items still fit (in my opinion) within the spirit of the challenge (gardening is allowed, and painting (for money) is used something a Runaway could easily do in real life).

       (What You CAN'T Do) 

      • NO JOB until you've become a young adult and have a home (at least 1 kitchen, 1 bedroom, + 1 bath ) ---( you're Sim is homeless until then )
      • NO ITEMS THAT REQUIRE ELECTRICITY: You cannot have any electronics, appliances, or cell phone access (put it on silent) until you have a home (at least 1 kitchen, 1 bedroom, + 1 bath ).
      • You CAN'T build any kind of shelter for yourself until you have earned the Simoleans to do so, and become a young adult.
      • You CAN'T cook/shower/ect. on other peoples lots or interact with adults until you are a young adult. { Imagine that since you're a runaway they'll report you as such.}
      • Absolutely NO potions allowed 
      • Potion traits, purchased traits, other unnatural traits, or anything that changes moods unnaturally ARE NOT allowed.
      • Absolutely NO ITEMS THAT changes a Sim's mood (like a mood-lamp)
      • You DON'T have to pay bills until you're a young adult and have a house.
      • You may NOT move into anyone's house.
      • You may NOT use any of the Reward Points you receive.
      • (UPDATE 11/2/14) NO Bed  (sleep on a bench) until you have a home. (at least 1 kitchen, 1 bedroom, + 1 bath)
      • NO Shower  + NO Toilet until you have a home. (at least 1 kitchen, 1 bedroom, + 1 bath) (UPDATE 5/10/15) Remember: You CAN shower and use the bathroom at any public place, like the gym, for example.
      • NO Refrigerator until you have a home. (at least 1 kitchen, 1 bedroom, + 1 bath)
      • (UPDATE 11/1/14) Grills ARE NOT allowed (there are grills in every neighborhood, on public lots)
      • NO Stove until you have a home.  (at least 1 kitchen, 1 bedroom, + 1 bath)
      • NO Candles until you have a home.  (at least 1 kitchen, 1 bedroom, + 1 bath)
      • NO Cheats/ NO mods except for the "Money Cheat" (Only when reducing your initial cash to 0, or deducting $10 from your funds per time you travel), "resetSim Cheat", or a  phone mod (for example: CC such as the "buyable pond" is NOT o.k.)
      • (UPDATE 11/2/14) NO Telescope until you have a home.  (at least 1 kitchen, 1 bedroom, + 1 bath)
      • (UPDATE 11/2/14) NO Microscope until you have a home.  (at least 1 kitchen, 1 bedroom, + 1 bath)
      •  Try hard NOT to interact with others unless your social meter gets low.
       However, If your social meter gets low, you CAN interact with children or other teens, but NOT adults.
      • So NO phone until you have a home (at least 1 kitchen, 1 bedroom, + 1 bath ).  (Sims use their phone to browse the internet, play games etc., so if you see this action it must be canceled immediately.)  (side note: If you have a mod to stop the action, that's o.k, and it will be the only mod allowed in this challenge. Here's one: http://www.modthesims.info/download.php?t=536411
      Going To School:  As for the child going to school, teens DON'T HAVE TO go to school, and it appears (in all the times I've played this challenge) that the same applies to children, even after the parent is no longer present. 

      The Social Worker: In Sims 4, it seems that missing school doesn't make the Social Worker show up, or take children away.  However babies do seem to need to be taken care of.

      *********************************
        PLEASE KEEP IN MIND:
      *********************************

       THINGS BECOME 100% NORMAL WHEN:  You can start working toward life goals (2kids, good job, aspiration) only when you level-up to become a young adult, and AFTER you have a home (at least 1 kitchen, 1 bedroom, + 1 bath ). 

       BUILDING a HOUSE:  You can build your 1st home (at least 1 kitchen, 1 bedroom, + 1 bath )  ONLY AFTER you level-up to become a young adult.

       NO SCHOOL EVER:  To keep the runaway vibe of the challenge, your Sims(s) are NOT allowed to ever go to school (they've dropped out and run away). You must succeed without an education. 
       WHEN TO:   (ONLY AFTER YOUR SIM BECOMES A YOUNG ADULT ) -- According to the rules, UNTIL your Sim is at the very least, a Young adult, and has a home (at least 1 kitchen, 1 bedroom, + 1 bath ) they ARE NOT ALLOWED to do the following.... (other restrictions are, for the most part, designed to keep the spirit of the challenge):    NOT ALLOWED to have any electronics (including cell phone), buy a Bed, buy a Shower + Toilet, buy a Refrigerator, Telescope, Microscope, Stove + Candles.


      (UPDATE   6/7/15 -- Reminded to mention by Alex Hefel who commented below) :    

      HOW TO TRAVEL (when the phone can't be used)? Well... I found that you can travel by scrolling to the edge of the neighborhood, + clicking the mouse when it turns to a magnifying glass, or simply by pressing "M" on your keyboard.

    • Each time you travel, you MUST subtract $10 Simoleans from your funds.You have to purchace landscaping items totaling approximately $10, or use the Money cheat, deduct $10 from your funds per time you travel.


       $$$ ** THE MONEY RULES ** $$$

      (What You CAN'T do money-wise)
      • You CAN'T have a part time job.... You CAN'T have a full time job until you are a young adult and have a home (at least 1 kitchen, 1 bedroom, + 1 bath ).
      (What You ARE ALLOWED TO, or even ARE REQUIRED TO do money-wise) 
      • You CAN fish all you want, and even sell it.
      • You CAN garden all you want, and even sell it.
      • You CAN dig all you want, and even sell it.
      • You CAN travel.   ----->>SO HOW DO YOU TRAVEL  (when the phone can't be used)? Well... I found that you can travel by scrolling to the edge of the neighborhood, + clicking the mouse when it turns to a magnifying glass.
      • Each time you travel, you MUST subtract $10 Simoleans from your funds.You have to purchace landscaping items totaling approximately $10, or use the Money cheat, deduct $10 from your funds per time you travel.


      VERY IMPORTANT: As New Expansion Packs, Updates, Etc. Are Released , These Rules May Make Less Sense Due To The Changes, Additions, Or Subtractions Made To The Game. Due To This Fact, You'll Need To Rely More And More On Common Sense To Help Guide What Should And Shouldn't Be Allowed or Not Allowed In This Challenge In Order To Keep In Line With The General Spirit Of The Challenge.

      *********************************
       FINISHING THE CHALLENGE (Goals): 
      *********************************
      The challenge is over when: 
      •  when your Sim gets a "high paying job" (a level 7,8,9,10)
      •  when your Sim has enough to buy a "big house" (at least 1 kitchen, 3 bedrooms, + 2 bath )
      •  when your Sim has (at least 2 kids)
      •  when your Sim survives the challenge while abiding by the rules of it
      •  when your Sim dies



      *********************************
       DIFFICULTY LEVELS: 
      *********************************

      [ TIP:  Try your hardest to  keep the number of "Uncomfortable" emotions as low as possible since points are subtracted, per each time, as part of the "Regular Points" (seen toward the bottom of this page).]

      Novice:  You CAN use a grill on "Novice" mode only.   Reach a medium paying job (a level 5,6,7 in a career), instead of a high paying one (a level 7,8,9+10 in a career) + Survive the challenge until your Sim(s) die(s).

      Normal : Follow the Rules + directions in the above sections.

      Specialist: You have to bring your baby-sister/baby-brother along  + both have to survive the challenge until your Sim(s) die(s).

      Legendary:  You have to also bring along your baby-sister/baby-brother,  + both have to survive the challenge until your main Sim dies. You have to also manage to keep your 2 Sims "happy" (which means NO MORE THAN 30 of any negative emotions in either of your Sims whole lifetime- for example: 31 "Uncomfortable" emotions means you fail the challenge on Legendary - but may still have competed the challenge for "Specialist","Normal", or "Novice". Again, remember to try your hardest to  keep the number of "Uncomfortable" emotions as low as possible since points are subtracted, per each time, as part of the regular rules.)

      ((((  UP - for - GRABS! ))))  ~~>>> Advanced Play-Test CreditSpecialist, + Legendary are currently unplay-tested ... 

      However, I've also decided to give advanced play-test credit to the 1st person who can show me a link to a Let's-Play, a Story, or pictures of Important achievements, showing them completing either Specialist, or Legendary on this challenge.
