The Drifter Challenge - House 001 - Rules

VihishaVihisha Posts: 2,767 Member
GAME SET UP FOR THOSE INTERESTED IN THE FULL 24 HOUSE CHALLENGE
In both Oasis Springs and Willow Creek worlds you will need to:
-Evict all Sims from the Residential Lots
-Demolish all Residential and Community Lots
-Place a Restaurant on The Futures Past Lot in Oasis Springs (Dine Out needed)
All other worlds and vacation destinations may be built upon or populated however you'd like
*Adding in unique Lot types from other packs is encouraged

GAME SET UP FOR THOSE PLAYING JUST HOUSE 001
-Evict any Sims who are living on the Agave Abode Lot in Oasis Springs world
-Demolish the Agave Abode Lot
-Set the Agave Abode Lot to Residential
All other worlds and vacation destinations may be built upon or populated however you'd like
*Adding in unique Lot types from other packs is encouraged

MAKING THE DRIFTER
Create one Sim who is a:
-Young Adult
-Humanoid or other Occult from the following list:
*Alien (Get To Work needed)
*Mermaid (Island Living needed)
*Spellcaster (Realm Of Magic needed)
*Using Story Mode for creating The Drifter is not allowed
*If you download a Sim, make sure that they do not have any Skills or extra Traits gained as this could give unwanted advantages




REQUIRED GAME SETTINGS
Under the Gameplay tab in the Game Options menu select the following:
-Autonomy - Full
-Auto Age (Played Sims) - Yes
-Sim Lifespan - Normal

WHERE TO START AND LAST MINUTE PREPARATIONS
-Choose any Season to start in (Seasons needed)

-Drop the Active Household Funds to $0 Simoleons (testingcheats on + Money 0)
-Save your game
-Make a backup save of your game (start of House 001)
*I highly recommend that you make these separate game save files so that if you are unsatisfied with how things turn out or you experience a House Challenge fail, you will have the option to redo House 001 without having to redo all the set up procedures

THE ONLY PLAYABLE SIM THIS HOUSE CHALLENGE IS:
-The Drifter you created
*All other Household Sims are considered non-playable who may only be controlled using options available through their portrait in the bottom left hand corner

REQUIRED GOALS OF HOUSE 001
1. As a minimum create a 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom home worth at least $30k Simoleons

2. Produce and raise The Heir to the Young Adult life stage
*When The Heir reaches Young Adult, you must stop game play and save if you are continuing onto House 002

ALL ABOUT THE HEIR
-The Heir is the firstborn baby made between The Drifter and another Sim who is part of the Active Household at the time the WooHoo For Baby interaction is used
*Vampire babies cannot be considered as The Heir

-Any Required Goal was not completed before The Heir ages to Young Adult

    Let me see if I understand. Start with one controllable Sim. When the heir becomes a YA do they stay on the original lot? Or they are then to move to another lot? Bookmarked thread and YouTube channel.
  • naniminnananiminna Posts: 463 Member
    Are you releasing this challenge in segments? Or is it the same challenge just filling each lot up over time?

    Yes...start w/1 main Sim...Move-in "heir creator"...Produce Heir...THEN...when Heir reaches YA...This house challenge is over. Everyone stays in that house EXCEPT the heir...which will move on to House 002 (next mini-challenge) & will become your Main Sim for that house challenge. =)

    It's in segments. We fill up the lots as we go....each house will come w/a whole new set of challenges 2 complete before moving on 2 the next house challenge.

    If you rather enjoy 1 specific house challenge..it works as a stand alone challenge as well....so if the WHOLE challenge is 2 much or u just prefer smaller/quicker challenges...then by all means...just use the mini-house challenge(s) 2 enhance your own game play =)

    Funny you said that, I'm actually already watching those. I'm almost done with part 1 now, and will be watching part 2 soon. =)
    Part 2 and 3 are already up. I am not going to be able to play my games for a few days, so I'll be continuing the game in a few days.

    I am gonna start this challenge right away, I totally love the idea of starting with completely nothing and building a complete town out of nothing. I am still a newbie and not someone who uploads let's plays, but I will send pictures as soon as I can on this forum. I think I will use a female character, but I don't exactly have a name in mind yet, but that will come.

    Can I actually travel to other lots within the street to dig up those treasures, bcos there's a rock on a lot in my street. Yes, I forgot the amount of comments needed, but I know I can't get pics up yet.
  • FennadevFennadev Posts: 180 Member
    I got another question worked up, hope you don't mind me posting twice. Can my sim get a job? It would make making money a lot easier.
    And here's some information about her. Her name is Jaylene Dawnson, she loves the outdoors, is active and creative, her aspiration is bodybuilder, but I think I will switch it, because she can't go to the gym, which is needed for this aspiration. She is your typical punk rock girl, wearing a lot of leather and having pink hair.

    U may travel all up & down your street & the surrounding areas of that street..but u may NOT visit any other lots even if they r on your street...they r not built therefore considered locked. U SHOULD b able 2 reach all of the harvestables & collectables in that area without actually being ON a lot....if the car icon pops up 2 visit the lot...then u know it's a no go place...otherwise it's fair game on the street.
