The Sims 4 Civilization Challenge
Welcome to the Sims 4 Civilization Challenge. This challenge does not require any knowledge about history, just read on and you might be a historian by the end of this challenge...(hopefully)

Starting
Tech Tree(Part 1)
Tech Tree(Part 2)
Wonders
Governments
Religion

Important Stuffz
Morale=Friends, if your leader has more then 5 friends, your civilization is sophisticated, if your leader has less that 5 friends your civilization is uncivilized. If you have gave birth to more than 5 children, it's the relationship with your family.
There are era bonuses. These era bonuses will help you with your civilization.
Tech points are satisfaction points... I know a bit weird but I don't know any other things in sims 4 which you can just set freely besides money, (cause that's actually a technology that you'll need to research( Spoiler Alert!)) You can freely change satisfaction points with this mod Tech tree will be here soon... hopefully



The Basics
So to start of, you'll need to of course choose a civilization! Duh...Your choices are:
Whatever! You can choose anywhere, you may choose like Roman, Greeks, Spanish, French the possibilities are endless, you can also make up your own names like... Simburbia, or like Uninfinitan. It's your mind, your choice.


Leaders
So your leader can be a famous one or you can create your own. Mine is called John Major. So the leader is the only one which can pickup 2 skills. As in like athletic skill, which will help with fights and make them win.

Wins
There are four types of wins.
  1. Alpha Centauri, you'll need to build a spaceship. And then launch it and then you'll win! More info on how to build the spaceship below.
  2. Dominator, you need to defeat all the people in the neighborhood and repopulate the neighborhood with your civilization people.
  3. Peace and Artifactual, you need to build all the wonders.
  4. Technological and Prosperous, you need to research all tech and be the richest - more than 50,000 simoleons


Setup
You can only create ONE sim as your leader. And another sim as the tech collector. More information below. You must repopulate with other people in the neighborhood. Choose a lot as your city. You must remain there forever. You don't see Rome or Greece moving around everyday do you? I believe no, so let's move on.

The Tech collector
The tech collector is the person who collects tech, because you use satisfaction points as tech, so yeah! You need to make his/her moods static by shift-clicking the sim with cheats enabled. Your leader cannot interact with the sim. Do not use your leader's satisfaction points as tech points.

Objects on lot
A double bed
A fridge and a stove
A toilet and a shower
All the objects are the cheapest you can find in the store, no walls please. No skill objects allowed yet.

More rules
  • Any fight = Death. Period. If you haven't research Ceremonial Burial, you must delete the tombstone
  • If you choose to start in Willow Creek, if you want to win as a Dominator, you only need to dominate and repopulate people in Willow Creek, no need Oasis Springs.
  • No school! Till school is invented.

About the skills
Each person can only have one skill except the leader. Athletic skill can increase the chances of winning in a battle(fight)

The Leaders
The last child that you give birth is your heir. If you don't have any children well, you fail.

Moving in to your civilization
The sims that can move in to your civilization are people who are married. So let's say you have 3 children, they are all married. Then their wives can move in.

The Eras
Ancient Era - Use some common sense and the clothes that you gave them are more... suitable. Please prepare food. Lasts for 3 generations

Dark Ages - Food is scarce. Your civilization cannot make food. Add a Viking to your household. Lasts for 2 Generations. The Viking's relationship with the other sims on the lot is all negative.

Medieval Era - Delete the Viking. You can make food now! You still can't have any jobs or any skill objects. Nor go to the community lot. Lasts for 4 Generations

Classical Era - Err, just move on with your lives. Still no jobs available. Lasts for 3 Generations

Post Modern Era - Finally, JOBS! You can have jobs and skill objects, you can also upgrade your stuff and have walls! Lasts for 3 Generations

Modern Era - Just play Sims how you would normally play it, no other rules.

Finally Starting (if I didn't miss anything)
The Tech Tree is very confusing so the starting will have to wait. Aww... But then you ask I want to play it now! But I'm sorry you just have to wait! This game WILL take patince... wait I spelled that wrongly didn't I? P-A-T-I-E-N-C-E That spells peh-tee-urn-say? Whatever. Remember to take notes. This is Civilization Challenge 101~

Tech Tree
Ancient Era
  • Alphabet, 5 Tech Points. Unlocks the Oracle of Delphi wonder. Required to research Writing, Code of Laws and Literacy.
  • Bronze Working, 6 Tech Points. Unlocks the Colossus of Rhodes wonder. And also fishing. You can mine gems and metals. Required to research Iron working and Currency.
  • Pottery, 6 Tech Points. Unlocks the Hanging Gardens wonder. Unlocks Mixology. Drinks can be tradable for money, if Currency is invented. Required to research Masonry, Irrigation, Ceremonial Burial.

Late Ancient Era
In order to advance to this Era, you'll need to research all the tech above in order to proceed, if not you'll have a hard time in the Medieval Era.
  • Ceremonial Burial, 8 Tech. Unlocks the Great Pyramids of Giza wonder. Requires Pottery to be researched. Required to research Monarchy and Religion. If a sim dies, you can keep the tombstones. If you mourn the people that you killed, you might place incense, which can be changed for money.
    Mourn 10 times = 100 simoleons if Currency is researched.
    Mourn 25 times = 250 simoleons.
    Mourn 50 times = 500 simoleons
    Mourn 100 times = 1000 simoleons.
    After this you can only earn simoleons by hundreds. Just add a 0 add the back OK?
    The mourning can be done by a as many people.
  • Iron Working, 10 Tech points. But then you ask why is it so much? Because this tech leads to everything else. Unlocks the Trajan Column wonder. Requires Bronze Working to be researched. Required to research Construction, Metallurgy and Steam Power.
  • Masonry, 9 Tech points. Unlocks walls! You can build walls! Unlocks the Great Wall wonder. Requires Pottery to be researched. Required to research Irrigation, Construction and Maths
  • Writing 11 Tech Points. Unlocks the Great Library of Alexandria wonder. Requires Alphabet to be researched. Required to research Code of Laws, Monarchy, Navigation, Maths, Literacy.

Post-Dark Ages
If you have researched all of the tech above, you can cut down 1 generation in the Dark Ages! Yay!
  • Code of Laws, 15 Tech Points. Unlocks Republican Government. Requires Alphabet and Writing to be researched. Required to research Currency, Democracy, Monarchy and Banking.
  • Construction, 17 Tech Points. Unlocks the Colosseum wonder. Requires Iron Working and Masonry to be researched. Required to research Engineering. Any trees nearby will cut down 1 day for any wonder constrtuction.
    1 Tree = 1 Sim day less to build the wonder.

  • Mathematics, 15 Tech Points. Requires Masonry and Writing to be researched. Required to research University, Navigation, Currency and Engineering.

    If Tech Points exceed 15 Tech and you have built at least one wonder, you can reduce the era by 1 generation, well because you exceeded the actual expectations of time, it's like discovering phones in the Medieval Era.

Dark Ages
You don't have much to do here, you just need to survive. Keep tech for Medieval Era, there you'll need to research quite a lot to win

Late Dark Ages - Post-Medieval Era
  • Currency, 28 Tech Points. Unlocks simoleons, the Trade Fair of Troyes wonder. Requires Mathematics, Bronze Working and Code of Laws to be researched. Required to research Banking

Is this challenge finished already or should I still wait before starting it? I have a few questions (how to build wonders and are they useful? How to defeat and to dominate the people in the neighborhood? How to use aspiration points to collect tech? etc.), but if you're going to add more rules and instructions later, I'll just try to wait patiently before starting the challenge.

@Aislynne Its not finished yet, the wonders have their benefits, I'm still writing them. The aspiration points thing is used with the tech collector, create a sim, your leader cannot interact with him or her. Everyday just add the respective amount of tech points. The world domination is changing everybody in the town into your own civ. Let's say that your sim's name is Sim Sim. Your children's last name will be sim, so if everybody in the town last name is Sim, well then you won the dominator type.

Cool, thank you, @Uninfinite!

I still have some questions before I can start. Please tell me if my questions start to annoy you and I'll promise to stop!

1. Can I get aspiration points by completing the tech collector's whims or only by letting time pass? If it's the latter, how many points do I get per day during the ancient era and the dark ages?

2. Can I research a tech and build wonders at the same time? So if I'm building Shakespeare's Theatre, for example, can I research a tech or build another wonder simultaneously, or do I need to wait the required 15 days before I can do anything else?.

3. Can I actively do something to decrease the amount of time required to research a tech or build a wonder, or do I just need to wait passively for days to pass? If I can't have a job, go to a community lot or use objects that build any skill, there aren't very many things to do.

@Aislynne You can only wait for time to pass to get aspiration points. No whims. 1 point per day in Dark Ages 2 points in Ancient. You may build and research at the same time only if you have more than one sim in the household. You can actively do something you can make up your own set of like mini challenges and you can do those. There are objects for you to build skills. You just need the money!

Having a religion is optional but it's quite good and fun too!
Religion
Religion can be founded if you have more than 10 Faith (friends). You can name your Religion anything you want. Example:
  • Christianity - Simianity
  • Hinduism - Simduism
  • Buddhism - Plumbobism
You get the idea.

To determine that that particular city (lot) is following your religion, you need to determine something to represent your religion.

When you have founded a religion, your whole civ (active household) will be following the religion. You'll need to send someone who is a follower to another city (lot) and do it there. Once you send him out, you'll need to go into buy mode and choose something that represents your religion.

Religion adds 3 Faith, just add three friends to the leader. Also, religion unlocks a secret win, ipsius enim est religio Which means Lord of the Followers, all of the cities (lot) on your planet (town) is following your religion you win!
