  • You have to create two Sims and set them up in a completely empty world (delete all the sims and lots, you can also download an empty world)
  • It is obvious that Sims from prehistoric era can’t join any job that’s why you have to sell collectibles, woodwork etc. They can’t have any house too. They have to live on the land or inside tents. The only food they can eat is the one they have caught or farmed.
  • Reach Early Civilization by completing some goals in the prehistoric era. You have to reach Level 10 in Fishing, Gardening and Handiness skill. After reaching Early Civilization your sims will be able to build houses.
  • Keep progressing through different eras like the Middle Ages, Industrial Ages etc. and finally reach to the Modern Ages. In order to progress you have to complete various goals which will unlock new gaming mechanism.

In the Decades challenge instead of starting from the prehistoric era, you start in the 1890s and journey towards the modern era. Below are the rules of the Decade challenge: –

  • Sims can marry only within their ethnicity, as there was no concept of homosexuality at that time you can only marry the opposite sex, no electricity, you can’t have sex for fun. Seems like life was really tough in the 1890s.
  • As you reach the 1990s you can enjoy electricity. But there are no jobs for women.
  • The 1910s are the war years. Male children have to go to the wars once they reach adulthood (feed to the cowplant, roll the dice even – survive, odd – dies)
  • Women get jobs in the 1920s but the happiness is short-term. Everyone will lose their job in the 1930s due to the great depression.
  • With each decade you get to face new challenges, new goals and various things to unlock until you reach the current decade.

The decade challenge is a really creative challenge. You get to experience how was life in these decades. If you want to know more about the Decades challenge.
