I am an achievement-enjoying gamer. It's one of the things that I like about the console game platforms. I can get little bonuses (purely emotional usually) from reaching certain goals that the developers chose to set. I really liked having these in Spore, and these sorts of things tend to extend the life of sandbox type games like the Sims. There are many of these things built into Sims 3 already, but no central way of tracking them. As I've been working on my Legacy Challenge family, I got the idea to make a checklist for myself and then decided to be obsessive and make one to share with the community.

The list below includes all of achievements that I believe to be built into the Sims 3, as well as a few others (like having a ghost baby) that I thought were goal-worthy. The goals are intended to be achieved without cheating (other than the various building cheats), but it's your game so play it however you like. I will probably add to it as I discover more things. I even included a point total so that people can compare if they want. (And maybe next time EA will build an achievement system into the game.) I also have this in MS Word and PDF format with pretty little checkboxes, but I haven't found a good place to share those from so I'm just including it in plain text for now within the post.

Feedback and suggestions for additions are welcome!

And so, here it is:

Very nice! You are correct that EA should enable these accomplishments.

Imagine a signature here.

Great list! I bookmarked this. I have a Sim who's been staying at adult-stage indefinitely thanks to Ambrosia. He is trying to reach level ten of each career. So far he's done Culinary, Journalism, Professional Sports, Medical, Military, Music - Rock, Music - Symphonic and Science. He's working on Criminal now so he's passed halfway there! Not sure what skill achievements he's gotten. I know he's gotten a bunch but I haven't been keeping track of that. I'll have to go through the list and figure out exactly how close he is to completing all of these. He still has 2 paint skill points to go to have mastered all skills. He has had triplets and I think twins. I don't think he's been the boyfriend of ten Sims as he's not much of a dater but he is a four-time widower (and currently on wife #5.)

Ok, I'm working on completing as many achievements from the checklist as possible on one Sim. Below is my list. I checked off what he's completed. I need to look through his skill journals because I'm not sure what ones he's gotten for body, handiness, painting or logic. I'm also not sure how to know about certain things like how far he's gotten on collecting. Anyone know how to keep track of the collecting achievements? I also cant figure out which plants my Sim is missing. His skill diary shows which plants he's grown but how do you tell what ones he has yet to grow?

I've probably done a few of those there, but the one that caught my attention was fulfilling all athletic skill journal challenges with one sim, which I managed to do. The whole 'lifespan increasing' thing when jogging was full of it though, since he died at 89 days.

I haven't done much in the way of collecting yet. (I'm planning on spending more time on it next generation as I won't be as focused on making money.) However, the Sims 3 Wiki is a good reference, and what I used for help on the collections part of my list. Link here: http://sims.wikia.com/wiki/Collecting_%28The_Sims_3%29

I saved the list on my computer so that I can use and reference it!

Thanks for making a complete list of achievements! This will really create a challenge for me!

So far only 13 points!
