Default The Warrior Cats Legacy Challenge ~ Highly Updated!
EPs Required: Pets

The Goal
Raise the most successful clan as you can for as many generations as you please.

Getting Started

1. Go into CAS and name the randomly-generated Sim (or rather, Twoleg for this challenge) whatever you like as well as give them whatever traits, but there is no need to alter their appearance. They will still be of use to you, but it will not be necessary to make them look presentable.

2. Create one-three cats. Their appearances, traits, and roles are up to you. Usually people would say you should use only natural colors, but you know what I say? Screw it; your game, your cats. You could even make Rainbowclan, or Neonclan, or heck, even Pixelclan. S'all up to you, it's not my place to tell you how to make your cats.

3. After you have created your Twoleg and cats, buy them an empty home lot, preferably a small to medium lot. This is only a small part of your territory, and it will hold your Clan's camp and basic hunting territory. If you want to, you can create "wild" lots in Edit Map mode which are available for you to buy as private property and therefore make part of your territory. However, if you want your territory to solely be one lot, be my guest.

5. Now that you've got your empty lot, you'll first have to create a small den for your Twoleg, inescapable from the inside and unaccessible from the outside unless you so choose to let them out. Give your Twoleg the basic necessities that they will need to survive. A computer would be nice as well, since it will be useful for adoption and social interaction.

6. After the Twoleg's den has been built, make your cats' territory and camp! Be creative, you can create anything you want for your cats to live in. The sky is the limit! Swamps, deserts, heck, even extraterrestrial biomes are all possibilities! You could even create some sort of cave system or a complex array of rivers for the camp. Make sure you have all the dens:
- Leader
- Warriors
- Apprentices
- Nursery
- Elders
- Medicine Cat

[ HELPFUL TIP: ] If you want certain prey items to spawn, hold down Ctrl + Shift + C and type in 'testingcheatsenabled true', press enter, and then do the same with the word 'buydebug.' Go to buy mode, then click the Categories menu. There will be a category with the symbol '?' on it. The debug menu contains spawners and a variety of other items.

7. After that, it is recommended to furnish your territory/camp with things like:
- Pet houses (Used for sleeping as well as for trying for kits. This one is actually essential, unless you have a separate designated spot on the map where cats go for mating.)
- Pet beds
- Cat condos (VERY useful. It can be used as a bed and as a scratching post, with multiple spots of capacity for many cats to fulfill their needs at the same time.)
- Toy box (At least two, and only with the cat toys inside. You can also get the foil and paper ball toys from the buyDebug menu. They look like rocks. Also, yarn balls could be like little moss balls for the kits if you color them green.)
- Scratching posts (This is optional, since the claw moodlet does nothing for your cat, but it could serve as a mood boost and prevent your cats from getting sick.)

Ranks

Leader - The cat in charge of the Clan, given nine lives by StarClan. Their word is law and they are the ones who conduct ceremonies.

Deputy - The leader's right hand cat. They will be the one to step up to the leader position, should the current leader die whilst they are in the position of deputy.

Warrior - The cats who hunt and defend the clan.

Apprentice - Kits that have grown six moons old and are thus considered old enough to begin training. They are assigned to a warrior or medicine cat and train under their mentor until they are ready for their warrior/medicine cat name and status.

Queen - She-cats that bear and nurse kits.

Kit - Cats under six moons old who still need care from queens.

Medicine Cat - The cat who communicates with Starclan and heals ailments. They are usually not allowed to have kits, as they must consider the entire clan their kits.

Elder - Cats who have grown too old to properly perform their duties. They are usually highly respected among their clan for surviving so long despite the harsh environment of the wild.

Patrols (optional feature)

Hunting Patrols - At least 3 cats required. In hunting patrols, the group must stick to one area to hunt, and each cat must bring at least one piece of prey back to camp, with the exceptions of prey shortages and the like.

Border Patrols - At least 3 cats required. There must be at least one border patrol a day. Border patrols walk along the borders of their territory and mark their borders in whichever way you see fit. It is possible to encounter things like wolves, foxes, and foreign cats on border patrols.

Dawn/Dusk Patrols - At least 2 cats required. Dawn/Dusk patrols go out at their designated times and explore around the territory for any intruders and the like. It is possible to encounter foreign animals or cats on Dawn/Dusk patrols.

Medicines (optional feature)
This is fairly flexible. You can either use your Twoleg to garden and collect plants, or you can use specific prey items to act as herbs. Herbs are used to cure specific conditions.

Conditions and Deaths (optional feature)

Poisoned - If not cured within three days of becoming poisoned, the patient will die.

Mild Handicap - The cat is able to move on their own, but unable to do certain actions such as hunting, running, etc.

Severe Handicap - The cat cannot move without assistance, they must spend the majority of their time in their nest.

Blindness - Usually, the cat requires assistance to roam around, however, they are capable of moving as well as any other cat.

Deafness - The cat can roam around and move as they please, however it will be harder for them to socialize since they cannot hear.

Severe Wounds - If not treated within five days of becoming wounded, the patient will die.

Rules:

1. The only mods allowed are mods that increase the amount of Sims and Pets in your family, and the mod I linked down below.

2. Having your cats drink water is cheating since it fills up their hunger. A way I suggest to prevent this is by rolling a random generator for a cat to potentially catch a contagious disease when they drink, thus setting up a sort of "punishment" for cheating.

3. You cannot change the results once an event is rolled. What happens is what happens, even if you don't like it.

4. (Most important rule) Have fun!

Losing Conditions:
1. Your cats got taken away by the social workers.
2. All of your cats died.
3. Your Clan was disbanded.

Recommended Mods:

WooHooer ~ Allows you to try for kittens even when your household is "full."
http://nraas.wikispaces.com/Woohooer

PortraitPanel ~ Allows you to have more then the maximum amount of Sim portraits in the game, so it doesn't glitch out when you get more cats.
http://nraas.wikispaces.com/PortraitPanel

Mover ~ Allows you to merge two households together or move a cat in even when the household is full.
http://nraas.wikispaces.com/Mover

MasterController ~ Allows you to control the number of cats you have in the household.
http://nraas.wikispaces.com/MasterController

More Filling Prey Items ~ Allows your cats to become full after eating just one piece of prey. VERY helpful.

(EDIT: Removed unnecessary clutter and made it clearer what's optional and what's set. Everybody's kinda doing their own thing and that's pretty cool, so the challenge is more flexible now.)

After a while, can you delete the sim using 'testingcheatsenabledtrue' then deleting it? It won't take away the pets, it'll still be there, but just not seeable. they can't interact with it either. Also, what happens if a person comes to the lot? Bad kitties? also, I haven't actually started yet, but can cats eat the things?

Actually, the Sim is quite important. If you don't have Nraas Mastercontroller, you won't be able to name your new cats and kits unless they're adopted and you don't get points for adopting kits And if a Sim comes onto the lot, testingcheatsenabled true, object:delete! Simple. And I would suggest this mod for this challenge:
http://modthesims.info/download.php?t=526095
Yes, cats can eat the minor pets. But the hunger it fills is so small you have to catch, like, 4 pieces of prey just to fill one cat. That mod I just linked above is to increase the amount it fills. Use only one of the .package files, and use the x6. That will be VERY helpful. More filling prey, less prey to hunt. You can choose whether your cats fish or hunt land prey. Both require Hunting skill

Tips:

~ Make sure the apprentices socialize in their free time. Why do you think I didn't tell you to just add them in Create a Sim?
~ Pay attention to how good your cats are at hunting in the two different ways (fishing and land hunting). If your cat is absolutely terrible at land hunting (like most of mine end up) they will probably excel at fishing. Vice versa, too. But there's a small possibility that your cat will be good at neither, but never both.
~ You don't need scratching posts because the Claw Moodlet doesn't affect your cats' moods.

K, I had this really good clan going (Nu mods) And then... A thing popped up saying 'You did not care four your pets! The goverment is taking them away!' And I was like, 'NNUUU!!' Also, I think drinking water is cheating. It fills you up all that way, su yerp. My main problem was the thing I showed above. xD

I has had a good idea! (I think) You should either build the camp a bit underground or above ground so the kits can't get out! Also, I recommend putting the Cat Condo or whatever its called into the nests, because its 4 or 5 cats per thing. (But kits can only sleep on the bottom one) Also because it has multiple scratching posts!

I actually figured that out already. o3o Did you download the mod I linked? That's fine, but if there are mods that affect moods then that's a No-No! If you don't want your cats to be taken away by the social worker, you need to have them socialize everyday and hunt regularly so you have a well-stocked fresh kill pile. And I forgot to add the drinking water thing but thanks for reminding me! (BTW I always use the underground idea. Put stairs.)

Hmm, well that's a problem. I've never experienced the cats refusing to eat. Maybe their way to the fresh kill pile is blocked or you just have too many beetles. (Beetles, on my computer, are problematic. When I direct a cat to eat it, most of the time they can't get there even if there's a clear path. But now that problem's not really common anymore.)

Do you know Wordpress? Just go to Post Media, upload a picture, copy the link of the picture they give you, do the img thing ([IMG]), then paste it! At least that's how I do it.

Default Update 6/7/2014
Hello guys! Here is my current clan, Meadowclan.

Here's our first leader, Meadowstar. I figured that since this is a new clan the leader should be named after the clan because the clan's named after them!

Then we have his mate, Leafpelt.

And the apprentices, Gingerpaw and Whitepaw. I'm sure you can guess which is which. It's obvious.


The warriors went out hunting for the day, leaving the apprentices a chance to get to know each other.

When the warriors were done hunting, it was dusk. Meadowstar caught nothing, but Leafpelt was able to catch a turtle and a cockroach.

Thanks! I never said you had to stop the challenge to add up your score (or did I?)! Whenever you like. What I do is whenever I'm done playing for the day, I add up my scores, then either exit the game or go to a new one.

A tom and a she-cat! *Click* Then when I checked their fam tree, I was like 'Oh... *La sigh* I guess they has too xD' Then when it said 'Try for Kittens' It was blacked out and it was like 'Your family is to big to have kittens.' There was the human, and 6 CATS! JEEZ! I also have Mover AND portrait panel.... WWWHHYYYY???

Portrait panel just adds more panels, it doesn't increase the capacity itself. Download MasterController and StoryProgression. Links here:
MasterController: http://nraas.wikispaces.com/MasterController
StoryProgression: http://nraas.wikispaces.com/StoryProgression
Click a Sim
Click StoryProgression
Click Household Options
Click Pet Size = 6
Change the number to whatever you want! IDK if it works, but I'm trying it right now.
EDIT:
Oh, yeah, and you also need WooHooer to keep the Try For Baby action when the household is overstuffed. Hope it works for you!
