Week 1 - Thinning the Herd
Specifically, the game seems to only be able to manage to move around so many Sims at once, leaving the others standing there doing nothing in the meantime. But since they were able to move around at least somewhat, I figured that I'd forge ahead anyway as it didn't matter to me if a few Sims died off (which ones would be pretty much random, so that's fair I suppose). And if some of them died then the rest of them would be better able to take care of themselves better due to less demand being placed on the game. And if they all managed to survive, the plan called for the rather large number of nine Sims to be voted out and that ought to help considerably.
Of course, whenever you make plans, Fate laughs at you.
I should note that I didn't take many pics of the first couple of days besides the ones for the Character List page, as masses of pictures of Sims passing out and wetting themselves gets boring after awhile. And sufficeth to say, every Sim did both of those at least once. Well, except Ace, the Bat-Hound (as opposed to Ace, the metahuman) who was incapable of wetting himself by virtue of not wearing pants.
Of course, I hardly expected the Sims to be dying off in these numbers. And having just over half the population of the household die in just the first few days of the competition is hardly fair. I could try restarting the whole competition, but though there's a few things I think I could do to make a few fewer Sims die, I suspect that it wouldn't be by much. However, after pondering the issue I decided that what I'm going to do is carry on with this competition even with such a massive reduction in population, but I'm going to play the competition a second time when it's finished with the Sims who died or were removed this first week as the only contestants so you'll get to see all these Sims again. Does that sound fair?
