Thread: New Category

Started by: OdogsterOdogster

Apologies for the late response. I swear I posted one about a month ago but the site must've crashed when I submitted it.

While I'm not entirely against the idea of an 'All Achievements' category, there are some problems that would make it hard to moderate.

1. The Steam version of the game doesn't have achievements, either in-game or on the Steam Platform.
2. One of the achievements requires the use of Local Multiplayer.
3. As Slevanas pointed out, it would be difficult on Xbox One.

Saying that however, I am open to suggestions for a '100%'-like category. I was thinking something like an All Objectives category, but that's also something that has flaws, the main one that I can see being that (aside from being hard to reset) one of the Objectives requires you to make a token fall on the board 100 times which is basically down to just randomness of the dice rolls. I know this is Monopoly we're talking about but even that is taking it too far IMO.

But I'm all open for suggestions on what other runners would like to see for this game.

Thread: New category idea: 88%

Started by: TheMadWaspTheMadWasp

Since Any% is pretty optimized by now, I was wondering if there was any sort of interest in an alternative category. A while back I had one called "88%" where the objective of the run was to get 8 of the 9 possible achievements (since you can't get both Ultimate Saviour and Ultimate Bully in 1 playthrough) and beat the game. I ended up removing the run since it was hard to tell when an achievement was actually completed according to the game but if there's interest I'll re-add it.

I know I'm late on this but is there any sort of interest in have a marathon category/leaderboard for speedrunning all 3 games in the trilogy?

I'm surprised that there isn't a Basic Training category, well I went ahead and did a run of it for fun. If you decide to add the category here's my current PB.

As long as it's a link to a working video, any method is fine.

Thread: Does talking to the Native American/Totem before the Tribe Duel save time?

Started by: TolozenTolozen

I can't quite tell, it seems like it does as you're doing something mid-cutscene. Also it does mean you only have to speak to the tribesman once after the duel. At a guess it probably only saves a second, maybe two at a stretch.

Thread: More specific rules (Max Skills)

Started by: java_finchjava_finch

Updated the rules, thanks.

I'll also make sure to update the rules for the other categories so that they're more clear.

I think it goes without saying that you cannot use cheats during a run, but in order to get the optimal house setup for Max Skills you'd either have to spend a long time getting the career rewards or just use cheats to build the house that way, so in order to make the category more accessible the use of cheats before starting the run in my opinion is perfectly fine as long as you don't use them afterwards.

Interesting that you chose Single Box Skip, I had that on when I was playing through the game normally and when I did my 6:30 run on The First Turnabout, but as soon as I switched to Full Box Skip I saw massive time drops, could just be coincidence as it's possible I just got better at mashing/making less mistakes. Something to think about at least.

I think me and courte tried doing this a couple of months ago because he was having issues with capturing the game as well and we couldn't figure out any sort of solution. If you figure something out let us know, but I think the game is pernamently locked to play in fullscreen mode only.

Thread: Question about the All Cases NG+ category

Started by: TheMadWaspTheMadWasp

So for All Cases, I've noticed that the current runners wait during the credit scenes before continuing the run as normal, while this makes sense, would it be allowed so that after the final objection on Turnabout Goodbyes you could just exit out of the game and relaunch it to start Rise from the Ashes? It would save several minutes of waiting and make the run a bit shorter.

Thread: Defining 100%

Started by: TheMadWaspTheMadWasp

The current rules for 100% state that you just have to win every race in Competition Mode, while this is fine I'm not sure that's the correct way to be defining "100%" for this game.

I propose that 100% includes beating Competition Mode, obtaining all characters and unique boards. While this seems like a long category, it's probably more fitting.

Either way no one is running the game anyway but I'd be interested to hear any feedback.

I spoke with themataurian on his stream and we discussed the potential for a Discord server for runners of this game. So here it is: It's a work in progress server at the time of posting however it's a place to discuss the game, strats and showcase our PBs. Here's the invite for those that are interested: https://discord.gg/58XQNyD

Thread: New in game setting rule?

Started by: NTRGNTRG

Seems perfectly fine to me. Also disabling "Free Will Mode" prevents your Sims from doing anything on their own accord, I don't see any reason why players can't have it disabled. I did so on my Max Skills run.

Edit: Thinking about it, we could just have it whereby the timer starts as soon as you gain control of your sim(s). So it doesn't matter too much if you have Special Events Camera on or off.

Thread: New Categories requested

Started by: NTRGNTRG

Unless there's players that want to run the category I don't think it should be on the leaderboard. Also I checked the leaderboard for The Sims 1 and the category isn't there, unless I got the wrong port of the game. I can't speak for other runners but the idea of a Drown% category doesn't interest me.

If we're going to have it I think it should be a Misc category.
