Watch: 8 Sims, 1 house, 50 days
14, 2002 - by Claire Brybrey at SimCity Social Services
they are; the 8 participants to "The Sim Watch" project, starting this
Monday, ongoing for 50 Sim days. You can even have a look inside their
new home. Can you predict the result?
Day1 (April 15th) at 7AM the 8 individuals move into a house where they
have never been before. All the household members are strangers to each
other. At midnight on Day50 "The Sim Watch" will close, and with some luck
all 8 participants will still be alive. Perhaps have some of them fallen
in love, and perhaps will some of them be better skilled than when they
left home. Every 5th Sim day the scientists will report from the Sim Watch
house, telling us what each of the 8 participants have been doing, as well
as commenting on growing relationships and their mood and health situation
of the 8 participants are unique, most of them even extreme in one way
or another. Who will become friends? Who will dislike each other? Who will
be earning the most skills during the project? How many fires will they
start? Any fights?
50 days these Sims will be living exactly the way they want, only interrupted
and adjusted by actions and reactions within the household. Social relations
will grow, love and hate included.
the left on this page you'll find a brief presentation on each of the 8
participants, that's all you will get to know before the project starts.
Further down in the left side column, you will even find pictures from
the most rooms in the 2 storied house. By reading the 10 reports as they
are published every 5 Sim days, you will learn more about the participants
and you will see pictures whenever there is something to report.
- Predict Day50
It's easier to predict than
you might think. Just scroll through the presentations to the left on this
page, check their astrological sign and personality, as well as their outfit
further down on this page to get a rough impression on who they are. We
don't know their interests yet, only their face, personality and what clothes
they are wearing. Then reply on the 12 questions below. You won't have
to answer all the questions to attend the contest, but the more answers
the higher possible score. Each correct answer gives 2 points, on question
4 and 5 you can score 4 points if you pick the correct couples. Max score
will be 28 points. If more than one person get full score, the one submitting
first will win.
By participating to this
contest you are helping the scientist team to verify and adjust their theories
and expectations. The deadline is April 21st, meaning you you will be allowed
to read the 1st report (Day 1-5, released aprox. April 18th) before you
send in your final prediction. If you chose to send your prediction before
the 1st report is available, you can still send in your adjusted submission,
as long as you use the same nick and e-mail address. We will then cancel
your previous prediction(s), if any. If you forget to fill in your nick/name
and e-mail address, your sumbitted form will be cancelled.
The prize - in addition to
fame - is that you will be invited to join as one of the 8 participants
for the next "Social Watch". Wouldn't it be exciting to see how well *you*
would manage in this company with 7 extreme strangers?:) You might even
be the "star" of our next "The Sim Watch" project! This will all be discussed
with the winner.
In addition those submitting
the best 5 predictions will win a "Sim Watch" T-shirt! (skin)
Ok, here we go. There are
12 questions, all of them referring to the project's Day50 at 11:59PM.

for a few occasions will the science team take control. None of these actions
are supposed to interfere with the Sim Watch household's social relations,
though. The list of scheduled events has been moved to a seperate
