Attention All Runners,

A new category has joined the ranks of The Sims 3 Boards. Introducing Max All Skills.

As the title of the category suggests, you have to max all the skills available in the game. The timer ends once you master the last skill you need.

Happy Simming and any questions, please reply to this thread

Hello.
I'm new here in the community and I've had the opportunity to do some racing. And I wonder if we can add a death category (who dies faster) in Misc. I have a video and would like to know please.

currently not looking to add a death category at this moment I am sorry 😊 I hope you understand

Sorry to be a pain, but I don't understand the collecting skill. How does one complete this (Only sims 3 orginal content)? I'd like to complete Max all skills but this one puts me off from doing it.

Best wishes
Clyth

Actually now that I look into it, the collecting skill, while it is a thing is more a thing to complete the game 100% I think....

I might have to talk with @MelonSliceMelonSlice regarding this as its more completing the Journal Kind of Skill. Instead of a normal skill in the game.

Let me know on what happens regarding the collecting skill.
I'll wait untill confirmation before I make a speedrun in this category.
Thanks for replying!

Hey there everyone. Time for an update:

After joint discussions between myself, Melon and the Community (on the community discord), the requirement for collecting skills in the base game runs has been removed.

Have fun, Happy Simming!

Good afternoon I have a question in the "Max all skill" mode (no expansions), I know that you only have to upload the skills of the base game, but could expansions be used in this mode? to take advantage of supernatural creatures for example or you can only use the base game without expansion.

Hi Daimers,

This is under discussions at the moment within the community discord. I recommend that you join there to continue the topic.

Kr,

Wolfie

Have we come to a conclusion with this yet?

 
  WolfstormWolfstorm

@TripleHavenTripleHaven - Yes this has since been resolved.

Store Content was split from the boards and moved to the CE Boards, per the thread https://www.speedrun.com/ts3/thread/91lmr .
