As a huge Fallout fan, I love this challenge! This is such a great idea, I'm so excited to try it. I can't believe I haven't come across this challenge until now. Will post pictures when I'm done. Also I've found some Fallout cc for the Sims 3, I'll list the links below:

I really wanna do this, but I can't build very well (or at all)... is there any bunkers I could renovate or something?

So this looks like fun, as long as after gen 1 things can remain interesting (I love the idea to make everyone eat from vending machines, that is truly cruel). I think I'm going to combine this slightly with the insane asylum challenge, where I only control the main family heirs (on only 1/ of all the things or something, and add traits like unstable/ insane upon age up (I might cheat this through by giving it as an additional trait with university influence)

Some ideas for the lot above ground; a junkyard, an abandoned building (such as the first insane asylum on this list, you could also repurpose the crappy beds & fixtures below ground for the theme, I've thought for a long time this lot needed something of a tomb below it and that could be your vaults), etc.

Also this redneck mansion gave me an idea- what if the underground area was more like an ant farm, tiny pods far away from each other as if they were buried that way? Sims could use ladders/ ITF elevators and have long hallways in between? Pods would each have a community purpose and there would be little or no 'private space'.

Here is some great lab equipment that I found (looks clean, but you could probably cast it with old metal patterns, the table top shelf is underlit which is pretty cool in game)

This also might be kind of fun with a few evil/fear of humans simbots running around, shorting out. Oh yeah and I'm using Roaring Heights and it's premades as the founding town/sims for this challenge, and when they emerge after generations it can be more modern times.

If I ever did a challenge, this'd be the one. Where are everyone's screenshots though?

Look out for BRIDGEPORT'88 - it's the hottest new show on YT this season!
Already renewed for '89!

(Oh, and follow me on my Tumblr.)

is it possible to do this in ts2?

i'm possibly trying this tomorrow and the problem i'd come across would be incest;sure i make sims have lots of kids but it might still only last 3 generations before incest although i'll use NRAAS

I was thinking about trying this map, http://www.modthesims.info/download.php?t=532114 but the idea of this challenge seems better to me.
There are a lot of objects that can be used in the previous link, and also many of the things that Cyclonesue does in TSR ( https://www.thesimsresource.com/artists/Cyclonesue ) are fantastic for this challenge.

Alright, you all wanted photos and I love building, so of course I'm playing this challenge on 'hard mode'. I chose Roaring Heights, and full disclosure I've never played fallout. So I'm basically setting this up as a 'nuclear survival challenge' with some 50's bunker themes.

It's currently winter in game, and 22 sims are in my family (2 are invisible, it turns out the game gives up at 20 and stops displaying the portrait even with Nraas Portrait Panel and the two sims are counted in my family but they more or less just never moved in. I was trying to get as many sims as possible to move in, so I'm sad I had to stop at 20 (I now may have to abandon the idea of saving pets :/)

I will make an additional post with floor layouts labeled, but basically I chose a family from the town instead of making a sim with great charisma or whatever to convince everyone. Turns out one of the sims in the Davidson family was friendly which helped out a lot!

So I hadn't planned on posting pictures until I'd finished the prologue, but a few days from Spring (ie, the beginning (The games starts in spring or summer? I can't remember which), and there's already a lot going on that is worth sharing.

A few tweaks I've made for myself;

Also, @Emerald1234, if you're going to do this in TS2 I suggest all the fun crafty items be built in to it or the only things your sims can use is what they make (like clothing?). Also if I recall mounted wall fish when placed on the ground are edible again without having gone bad, you could keep a while lot of 'dried' fish this way!

Might as well try this but extend the legacy to 10 at least...I most likely won't post pictures unless I find an easier way to do it..
