-You are free to evict and/or delete any Sims except The Heir from House 010
All other worlds and vacation destinations may be built upon or populated however you'd like

-Demolish the Umbrage Manor Lot
-Set the Umbrage Manor Lot to Residential
All other worlds and vacation destinations may be built upon or populated however you'd like

-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, you will need to make sure that they do not have any Skills or extra Traits gained as this could give unwanted advantages




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

WHERE TO START AND LAST MINUTE PREPARATIONS
-In Game Options set Season length as as well as rain/snow options (Seasons needed)

-Drop the Active Household Funds to $0 Simoleons (testingcheats on + Money 0)
-Save your game
-Make a backup save (start of House 011)

    Hey, small error up there..the lot for Rattlesnake Juice Bar is 30 x 20.

    Moving my ugly heir into his new lot, this looks like it'll be a challenge!

    Lawrence is off to a great start! He found a voodoo doll and was able to sell it for a nice pile of cash. He immediately bought a few essentials

    Mom came for a visit. She's very proud of him!

    Lawrence decided to go visit the bar. He missed alien night since he didn't have enough money at the time, but there were some people dressed up as knights there. But the big news is, he met someone! A sweet, geeky guy named Aidan. They exchanged numbers and talked late into the night.

    They're both geeks and it's cute as all get out watching them enthuse about video games and aliens.

    Nah I downloaded the bar. It is a a real nice one, though. I caught ghost night too when Lawrence and Aidan had a date.
    Speaking of ghosts, Lawrence's mother just died...but that hasn't stopped her!

    I'm loving Get Together, it makes finding spouses a lot easier and it feels a lot more natural than my old method of 'grab someone passing by and hope they aren't already married' :D

    @MocaJava 4 sure!! The pool of potentials just grew LOL

    Lawrence was right there by his side...well, after he stopped by the cafeteria.

    They had a boy and named him Daniel. I'll post pics when he ages up. I definitely plan on giving him a sibling. :)

  • MocaJavaMocaJava Posts: 1,378 Member

    Quite possibly..but he's really not THAT bad. I think having ugly genes is quite hard 2 do in TS4 yanno?!

  • MocaJavaMocaJava Posts: 1,378 Member
    I know, it's kind of disappointing because that's the whole theme of this family. They get too pretty unless I can add more ugly to the gene pool now and then. :D

    I read up on house 012 last night, just to take a peek at what was coming up. I'm glad I did, it reminded me I needed to give my heir the mean trait when he aged up! It sounds like it will be a lot of fun ... definately something different for me! I never give my sims the mean trait ... all those fights ... it's gonna be fun!
