Jack & Jill Challenge: Not your child’s nursery rhyme!

The haunting refrain of a familiar nursery rhyme floats thru the damp fog.  Barely visible in the half light are two figures. A boy stands staring off at nothing while a girl sits nearby on the ground.  She is clutching a doll to her chest and singing softly in barely audible tones.  The boy hums the same tune pausing now and again as if to listen.   But what is he listening for and why are they here? The words to the tune become more audible  … ‘Ring around the roses … Pockets full of Matches … Ashes Ashes the house burns down!’

Create Jack and Jill to fit the story above.
=>Any age or relationship. 
Post ‘live’ in-game pictures of them.

Quantum Leap: Every two weeks your sim will find himself lost in time! Join the fun!

Posted on



Quantum Leap is an American television series that was broadcast on NBC from March 26, 1989 to May 5, 1993, for a total of five seasons. The series was created by Donald Bellisario, and starred Scott Bakula as Dr. Sam Beckett, a quantum physicist from the near future who becomes lost in time following a time travel experiment, temporarily taking the places of other people to “put right what once went wrong”. Dean Stockwell co-starred as Al Calavicci, Sam’s womanizing, cigar-smoking sidekick and best friend, who appeared as a hologram that only Sam, animals, young children, and the mentally ill could see and hear.[3] The series featured a mix of comedy, drama and melodrama, social commentary, nostalgia, and science fiction, which won it a broad range of fans. One of its trademarks is that at the end of each episode, Sam “leaps” into the setting for the next episode, usually uttering a dismayed “Oh, boy!”


Make your own Dr Sam Beckett (look-a-like not necessary! Any male sim will do!)in Create-A-Household. Save him to your bin. Start a fresh save for each leap, this way you can “adjust” Sam for each “predicament”. Of course, if you have Master Controller you can just take him into CAH from a previous save. (use the SAME Dr Beckett for each challenge you choose to do)

Every two weeks your unfortunate Dr Sam Beckett, after entering the Quantum Leap accelerator, will be transported into a new predicament. Your assignment will be to capture him in screenshot and post it here.

There are two rules to qualify for this challenge:

1: Place a screenshot of Dr Sam Beckett in his New Persona and to which the assignment states in this thread.

2: Crop your screenshot ( highlighting Sam) and post it as your Avatar @ TS3 Creators’ Consortium II

Photo editing may be used but is NOT required. ( except for cropping your Avatar shot)

This will be an ongoing challenge. You can join in as you wish. Participate one week, skip another.

Our Dr Becketts will be voted on by our community and then the winning capture will be placed on the Portal page of this forum . You can upload your sim and share if you wish.

Scavenger Hunt : A Sims 3 Game by MerryWiddow

This is a super fun and very challenging  Sims 3 game play challenge hosted by MerryWiddow.  I have enjoyed each installement of the challenge  and must admit to being stumped on a few of the captures on several rounds.


Begins July 28, 2012 : Ends Sept 1, 2012 midnight your local time.

Find 15 items in designated neighbourhood with your Sim. Take a picture of the item with your Sim in the picture copying the posted item picture. Items can be found in any lot or area of location accessible by your Sim.

Each item will have a different difficulty level and therefore different point value.

Rules: Please read carefully.

  • You must use an unaltered neighbourhood.
  • You will not be required to add items that came with Ambitions, Late Night or Pets. I will only use what came with the neighbourhood.
  • You are not allowed to go into Edit Town at any time. (Exception: To place a lot for your Sim at the beginning of set up.)
  • Your Sim can be placed in any lot.
  • Your Sim must be in all of your entry pictures.
  • You must post all of your pictures at once in this thread.
  • Your pictures must not give any more of a hint than the original posted pictures. Most common point loser.
  • No editing of your picture, except for size. Must be a raw screenshot.
  • Keep your entry pictures to a maximum width of 800 pixels.
  • You may use testingCheatsEnabled and Teleport Here.
  • A suggestion is to place your Sim in a house, save and NEVER save again. You can then go back to a fresh neighbourhood before everyone leaves their homes when you need to. NEW

Example Pic:
Find this rock. Point value will be here.

Look closely at the picture and see the clues in the background. This will give you hints as to where to find this rock. This is an example of an easy item to find. The more difficult items will not have as much in the background to give you a hint.

On the morning of the Hunt start date I will post the list of 15 items in pictorial form stating what the item is and it’s point value. The only hint will be the picture.

Come and join in the fun! All are invited. Sign up now!

Thank you deviouslyvivid !!! Manly Man Modeling Cycle 2/ Assignment 1 results

The results came in for assignment 1 of  Simtech’s  Manly Man Modeling Competition .  See all entries from this round HERE

Me and Aric came in last place with a total of 80 points out of 120.

Original entry

 I was not surprised after seeing all the other entries….fabulous job everyone!   I had no idea why my capture was so small compared to the other entries and posted a comment in the challenge thread .    One of the other contestants , deviouslyvivid,  unselfishly  walked me through how to set my options and what screen ratio I could use to make my captures larger and sharper…….here is the result:

How about them apples!?!  I couldn’t believe the difference.

Here are what my options look like now:

**My screen ratio is actually set to 1600 x900….this is the largest setting I have on my laptop.**

Eliminations start with assignment 5.

Thank for reading and comments are always welcomed.
