The seventh child is born! It has been going quite well for Dominic, some aspiration failures but not too bad. But only one girl, and two set of twins. (I did not know that cheesecake eaten on another lot affected pregnancies.)
There is Deneb, fortune teen, Io, popularity teen also a boy but I did not check the names. Regor is a child, soon to be a teenager, Cassiopeja, child, Castor and Pollux, toddlers and newborn Sirius.

I have integrated the challenge in the regular rotation of my hood so they are a part of a big community with a lot of friends. The biggest issue for them is the lack of money, but they are getting by quite well anyway.

I'm looking forward to seeing them all grow up and make the hood greener.

I'm gonna try this. I have Shorter Pregnancies, No Alien Sexism, and Mulit Pollination Techs so the kids will be closer in age and have varying traits. Yay. I think if the kids aren't green with big ole bug eyes, maybe they will have an easier time making friends and getting a job

This challenge is so fun, but MIND BLOWINGLY aggravating. Taking care of babies and toddlers and a preggo dad at the same time is sooo frustrating, but fun nonetheless. If you get bored easily, this is the challenge for you - just don't use cheats.

And I've read through this whole thing to answer some questions, but since it started years ago I doubt the original poster is still around.
SO - I have a mod that changes the ages: babies is still 3 days, but toddlers are SIX ; this should make it harder - I think.
Adults have 35 to 40 days; if the sim gets pregnant every three days that means ELEVEN babies !!! or???.
I have toddler beds - sounds like people used a toddler "blanket", so I guess my beds are OK (and they don't get "dirty")
Author says "-15 points for every child taken by social worker", but if they show up they take ALL the kids & babies. Incidentally, even with the "no social worker" hack, if the only adult or teen is home and tries to leave (for school, work, community lot) HE will refuse to leave. Even though technically if they go to a community lot NO TIME PASSES.

I think I'm good at managing lots of babies, so I will make it hard on myself...
Will have to copy the long list of rules... Will NOT use toddler beds (or maybe only half what is needed!) WILL add penalty for toddlers having a crying fit for being dirty, hungry, or unloved.
With my age default making toddlerhood last 6 days, kids/teens last 12 days, and adult from 35 to 40 days, I figure:
If my "victim" has a baby every 3 days from his day 4 to his day 31, he would have 10 babies.
The worst day would be day13 & 16, when a new baby will be born and there may be 3 toddlers. But at least on that day one toddler will become a child.
Every 3 days when a baby is born, there will be a baby needing help aging, and there will be one other toddler.
If there is a delay aging up a baby, or twins ---OMG!
The first baby won't age to a helpful teen until day 25, when baby #8 is born. At that time there should be 4 kids, 1 toddler, and one baby needing to become a toddler.

Also, I have LOTS of default PTs (and they have all been geneticised) so who know what we will get?
So right off the bat, I got triplets. I have ACR, and picked "random" for number of babies...From now on when he first gets pregnant I will click on ACR to see how many babies are due and pick THAT at birth (I THINK that will show a random number too, but if it shows MORE than twins I will only ALLOW twins).

Am I talking to myself here? Ok, so I don't mind if I do...
A typical day: first child Astral is a help, but with 2 toddlers a baby and pregnant...

Pescado's sshack will let you leave the lot with children still on it. If you leave them for a long time though the social worker will come; it's mainly useful for if the nanny is late.

I love that girl's coat! I only just recently found those. Maxis pyjamas though, eww. :P

Here's some random picture of the quickly-growing family of Joe Average:
This is first-born Astral eating snow while Dad starts a relationship with Chloe Curious (I think)

I wonder if this is a negative point: Joe worried when a Toddler without a bed fell asleep...

But so far he has potty trained all the toddlers, some grow up plat, and he teaches kids to study

First-born Astral is so dark, I had to add makeup just so you could see some features. Her fine features are from her PT dad, but not her skin.

Just started this. He's about finished with his second pregnancy and man it's getting hard already. His needs are dropping so fast! He's currently passed out on the floor! I already had to cheat and get a nanny...There was just no way I could take care of the kid when i can't stay awake. Unfortunately the Nanny appears to be bugged...the kid wants to go to bed and she just keeps spreading bottles all over the floor and letting him pass out.

I attempted doing this, in my own way. I made an empty neighborhood, planning on making an alien town with my dad, Richard, as the progenitor.
Poor, poor Richard. He is abducted, dropped off on an island, and repeatedly impregnated with alien babies. He manages to have six in quick succession--two teenagers, two children, a toddler, and a newborn, and is pregnant with the seventh and last child. (I moved the firstborn to college just before she aged up, so she wasn't in the house.)

For some GODAWFUL REASON the only other teenager decides to mess around with a broken computer in Richard's cramped room. She gets electrocuted, and the computer sets on fire. The fire was put out, but quickly engulfed every item in the tiny room. Both Richard, the teenager, and a child perished in the fire, right as the other child grows into a teenager.

But too late. The social worker shows up and takes the newborn and teenager away. Game Over.

I'm attempting it for the first time tonight we have 2 gen Lucian Deveraux and who currently has a child Blix, toddler Iskadar and baby girl Ayvia. He hasn't been abducted again yet thank god! I have a mod and the babies only stay babies for a day so before I know it they've aged almost impossible to try and teach the toddlers anything. I managed to potty train and learn to talk for Blix but poor Iskadar and Ayvia have no chance!!

I'll probably just about survive this, poor Lucian.


Lucia ended up having two more children girls Starr and baby Leda. Then he got abducted and I forgot to get a babysitter the kids got taken away by the social worker

Default The Xenophilia Challenge - 7 Alien Babies Twist
I forgot I had started this challenge!

Here is where I'm at (I don't know how to add pictures, I have some for this challenge)

I started with Sam Grounder, I made him a Knowledge sim, so I could have him summon aliens
He currently has four children, with many crazy adventures on the way! Gemini, Cosmo, Nova, and Aries. He is also pregnant with his fifth alien child! So far Cosmo is the only boy, so he's hoping the next will be a little brother!

Sam Grounder has had his last baby! Unfortunately for Cosmo he's the only brother of the 7 siblings.

Gemini is now an adult, she still lives at home to help with the siblings. Like her father she has the Knowledge aspiration, and for obvious reasons she's very interested in being abducted by aliens.
Cosmo is still a teenager but his birthday is just around the corner. He's dating the lovely Amanda Velvet (one of my created sims) and they are considering moving in together at a University.
Nova is also a teenager, and is a bit rebellious. She sneaks out almost every night with Johnny Smith and has been brought home by the cops more than once.
Aries is an active kid, and loves being outside swimming, playing on the playground, and shooting hoops!
Seren is the quietest of the Grounder family, she enjoys reading books and watching TV alone.
Leda is still just a toddler, but loves her eldest sister Gemini, who helps her learn all the skills a toddler needs!
Astra is the youngest, still just a baby.

Fun challenge! I generally make large families anyway so it was fun switching a few things up and having a single dad and aliens!! I went with some classic space themed names. It'll be fun to watch this family grow up.

I wanted to do a Legacy Challenge when I came across the Xenophilia Challenge, so I thought I'd just do both. Basically, I'm thinking of doing the Xenophilia Challenge for ten generations. Can I just do that?
