VihishaVihisha Posts: 2,767 Member

-You are free to evict and/or delete any Sims except The Heir from House 009
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 010
-Evict any Sims who are living on the Pebble Burrow Lot in Oasis Springs world
-Demolish the Pebble Burrow Lot
-Set the Pebble Burrow Lot to Residential
All other worlds and vacation destinations may be built upon or populated however you'd like

*Alien (Get To Work needed)
*Mermaid (Island Living needed)
*Spellcaster (Realm Of Magic needed)
-Select the Vegetarian Trait (City Living needed)
*Using Story Mode for creating The Drifter is not allowed
*If you download a Sim, you will need to make sure that they do not have any Skills or extra Traits gained as this could give unwanted advantages

-Drop the Active Household Funds to $0 Simoleons (testingcheats on + Money 0)
-Save your game
-Make a backup save (start of House 010)

    If you have City Living there is an actual Vegetarian Trait that helps A LOT with keeping your Sim on the right path!

    I don't often have a Sim that uses the Vegetarian Trait, and I'm constantly forgetting that they only eat some of the food dishes offered (especially when grilling foods or ordering stuff from one of the food vendors)...which makes my Sims feel really sick :D Anyone else struggle?!

    After a few Sim days or so...you SHOULD start to notice your Sim looking more fit! By the end of a couple weeks...they will DEFINITELY start to get that "Bodybuilder physique!" *flex*

    Does having a "health nut" workout-a-holic Sim motivate you to eat healthier or start a workout plan of your own?!

    Lydia decided to treat her siblings to a day at the spa...as is my luck, things didn't go well. Note the urn
    aLZN6OP.jpg

    Yeah, the massage therapist dropped dead.

    The group system didn't really seem to work that well for me...has anyone had good experience with it?
  • MocaJavaMocaJava Posts: 1,378 Member
    The heir is here! Unfortunately, Lydia's husband Davis died mere hours before the child was born (well, Lydia wasn't that in love with him, she just really wanted a baby). Grimmy had a feel of her belly after he was done harvesting Davis' soul.
    Q7qzUBH.jpg

    She called her siblings over when she went into labor (Jillian couldn't come, she was at work). They all welcomed little Lawrence into the world!
    M32WeyY.jpg

    And here he is as a child. Did not get the skin color unfortunately but he definitely has certain traits from Lydia
    wURQLEI.png

    I also got the achievement for playing 10 generations of a family...wow :*
    Lydia's brother Gideon moved in with her shortly after Lawrence was born, saying he wanted to help out...also muttering something about keeping a low profile. His wife died the day after Davis died and he got the black widow achievement...which is one you get for surviving 5 spouses. Far as I knew, Gideon was only married once. Little brother may be keeping some secrets :o

    Noticed a couple cool new features...I got a text of condolence when Davis died, a 'happy birthday' text, and when I sent Gideon a sad text before he moved in he texted me back wanting to know if I wanted him to come over and cheer me up. Nice feature...except that the condolence text was from the ghost of Lydia's dead father and the birthday text was from the ghost of her dead husband :D

    @MocaJava making some good progress I c!! I haven't had a chance 2 really mess w/the group feature, myself as of yet. Sry Lydia's husband JUST missed the birth of their heir. :neutral:
    So awesome that u got that achievement!!!
    I like the new text feature that they added & I just picked up Get Together so I'm sure that will come w/a whole slew of new goodies...I need 2 start brainstorming ideas 4 the future...

    The text feature is really awesome, it makes it all feel more realistic. It makes you feel like people care about your Sim and actually worry about their well being. A bit disconcerting to get texts from the dead though :D
  • VihishaVihisha Posts: 2,767 Member
    @MacaJava Yeah..I was happy 2 hear about that feature being added..but I can c a text from dear dead Dad could b rather alarming heh

    I had to share this. Lydia's sister Jillian texted her to tip her off on a party that was happening out on the bluffs. She decided to check it out.
    DS16Zoz.jpg

    This was near the beginning of the party, it ended up with over a dozen sims dancing. Saw people from several clubs there. I'm really loving GT, though I haven't gotten to really play with the clubs yet.
  • tammyjo329tammyjo329 Posts: 2,725 Member
    Really cool pic Moca!

    I haven't started 010 yet. I'm waiting to see what Vi rules on which lots we can visit and when or any special rules for visiting the Windenburg lots and the new get together gatherings.
  • VihishaVihisha Posts: 2,767 Member
    :star::star:Changes Due To Get Together Espansion Pack :star::star:


    <Game Set Up>
    Delete all lots in Windenburg EXCEPT
    -The Bluffs
    -The Ruins
    -The Chalet Gardens
    Evict all Sims from Windenburg, but do NOT delete them...leave them in the "bin" Deleting these Sims will remove all pre-made clubs from your game

    <Nitty Gritty Rules>
    You may form clubs or join clubs @ anytime, but u may NOT designate your home lot as a meeting place
    You may visit The Bluffs, The Ruins & The Chalet Gardens....these will be added to the list of "built community lots"

    :star:THE BIGGEST CHANGE :star:
    ANYTIME you travel...visiting parks, going on vacation, getting invited on outings & the like...require that you have @ least $1k as cash on hand, or you will have to decline joining or traveling

    Feel free! Here's Lydia and her club taking a yoga class together (Gideon is being lazy as usual...or he's checking out the instructor, scouting for a new wife) :D

    Edit: Erm, apparently Gideon had his eye on our elderly member right in front of him...they just woohooed in the sauna :D

    They were sitting in the sauna together talking one minute, the next thing the room steamed up and the woohoo music was playing...Gideon seems to like the older ladies, his late wife was a lot older than him. Maybe that's how he got the black widow achievement >:)
