The Sims 4 Asylum Challenge Rules

How to start:

As we mentioned, the main goal is to complete your sim’s aspiration while keeping everyone alive. Keep in mind that you have no control over your friends, and you all share the insanity trait. Obviously, your aspiration can’t be related to having families, wealth, and going outside.

  1. Start by creating your main sim. Remember that they must have the insanity trait and be a young adult.
  2. Afterwards, create 7 other sims that all have the insanity trait. But, none of your sims are allowed to be related. We recommend you opt for different traits each time to spice things up.
  3. Then, build your asylum in Willow Creek or Oasis Springs. The size of the lot doesn’t matter. You can also use money cheats when building it. But, you can’t own any kind of pricey furniture, they all have to be the cheapest.
  4. Once you are done with your asylum, set your money to the amount your difficulty says.

The basic rules:

The rules are fairly simple. All you have to do is make sure your friends are alive and well. But, without controlling them or checking their needs.

  • When your asylum saves up a bit of money, you can start upgrading your furniture. But, you can’t buy any new furniture. You can always upgrade objects through handiness.
  • You must always play on your main sim.
  • No cheats, mods, or hacks.
  • The sims’ lifespan can be on normal or long, your choice. Keep in mind that you should have autonomy on high as well.
  • If a sim dies, you have to keep their grave on the lot.
  • Because sims often die from embarrassment, you can have multiple toilets.
  • Your sim can work hard in their career. But, you can’t make the others do it.
