Default The Urbz Challenge
I recently dusted off my Playstation 2 to play the Urbz, and couldn't find any Urbz-based challenges for the Sims 4! So I tried to create one. I've never done this before so feedback is appreciated: playtesting, translation errors, Base Game alternative interactions, pack features I might've overlooked, more challenges/social interactions (or less?), handling the district/club hangouts, occults, potential mods, etc.

The Urbz: Sims In The City
"... Sims live in the city of Urbzville, divided up into nine districts each of them containing their own style and unique Sims. The main focus of the game is building 'rep' with other Sims in order to gain fame, entry to VIP rooms and advance to new districts."

Variants
Legacy: 1 sim and 1 district per generation.
Rotational: 9 sims, one for each district and rotate between them every week/day/season/year.
Asylum: Create a sim based on each district and put them in one household. Watch it unfold, control one sim or rotate your controlled sim every week/day/season/year.
Short Legacy: (Base Game) Try to complete as many districts per generation as you can / (Get Together) Complete 3 clubs per generation.
One shot: (Base Game) Try to complete as many districts as you can or turn aging off / (Get Together) Create 3 sims that each complete 3 clubs?

Legacy: Getting Started
Randomize or create a founder. Teen or YA. Any lifespan.

Option 1: Build a house/furnish an apartment and build a community lot for each district.

Urbz: Start on any lot in a <120 tiles house/apartment with the cheapest sidetable, radio, shower, couch, fridge and $300. (Eco Lifestyle: Add a dumpster).
Legacy: Start on an empty/bulldozed lot with $1800 or $0. Building is restricted to <120 tiles.
(City Living) Optionally, add filthy and gremlins as lot challenges.

After 3 generations, you can move or upgrade your house to <360 tiles (Cats and Dogs) and adopt a dog.
After 6 generations, you can move or upgrade your house unlimited (Cats and Dogs) and adopt a cat.

Option 2: Use your lot as the club hangout and move the next heir (teen or YA) to a new lot each generation. Don't sell your belongings when you move.

Base Game
- Befriend 5 unique sims and invite them to your household. Don't keep additional money. You can't control them and they can't have jobs.
(Optional) Find sims with fitting traits or likes.
(Discover University) Invite as roommates?
- Get a makeover to match the district fashion (remove $500 from household funds and change your look).
(Get To Work) I'm not sure if you can build a clothing shop for this?
(High School Years) For a challenge, you could try using the thrift store.
- Become best friends to change club members outfit.
(Get Famous) Use the wardrobe platform.
- Build a community lot / Build a house for the club members.

Get Together
- Max club size.
(Optional) Unique sims for each club.
- Get a secret handshake.
- Build a club hangout (community lot or residential)
- Create 2+ custom outfits for each club.
After you've created the club, you can change club outfit to custom. In CAS, above outfit category (everyday, formal, etc.) there's an arrow to add more.

Pick any district you like to start with. You can go down the list like in the Urbz, or do them in random order.
Get your club together, max out the career, do the daily challenges, missions and throw a house party every week.
