Default IDOLIZED - A KPOP Career Challenge
OVERVIEW
Ever wanted to be in a kpop idol group? Ever wanted to know what it was like to live that life? Try out this challenge to see if you have what it takes to be in that world. Starting from the bottom, you have to learn how to manage relationships and drama as you work toward reaching your dreams. Not only are familiar rules seen in many other challenges, there are also specified goals and events that will help or hinder your pathway to idolization. Some things will have to be part of the way you tell your story. Others will be easy to see with mods & cheats. This is NOT a legacy challenge! (Unless you want it to be, I suppose…)

Everything you need is here!

AUTHOR NOTES
I am not an expert on Korean culture. I am only using the world of kpop as a setting for a playthrough of the Sims 4. That being said, I have put in a little research and reading to get plot ideas and information to be used during the playthrough. Here are some other kpop challenges that I used for ideas: KPop Group Challenge (2017) / Underdogs of KPop (based on BTS)

The google document has more information, along with a list of recommended mods and cheats if needed. Any feedback is appreciated, as I am in the process of testing this out. Let me know what you think, what can be different, what is good, etc!!

MANAGER RULES
  • You must control social media. This is where the phone disable mod comes in handy. The manager is the only person to post on social media and gain followers.
  • You must build your relationship with members throughout the playthrough. Romantic relationships with the members is not banned, but it can affect morality!
  • You may produce a track or video once the members reach level 4 in their skills (listed in member rules) and your specific skills are level 3.

MEMBER RULES
  • Members must wake up at 5AM every day, unless they have a part time job starting earlier. The time they go to bed is up to you, but the later the time, the worse they may feel.
  • Members must work on building these skills to level 4 before using the randomized event lists.

RANDOMIZED EVENT TABLE
Use a number randomizer to make it more interesting! Each day at a certain time (during the day sometime), randomize a number and do that task. Some are positive to boost your skills, fame, and money, but some will have a negative effect. Some are related to the industry, some are related to personal goals. For individual events, you can have one time for each member, or you can affect one member multiple times. Managers are exempt unless stated.

Example Events (full table is in the document)
  • Individual Photoshoot
  • Extra Skill Lesson
  • Debt Payment
  • Sasaeng Fan
  • Rich Investor
