The Drifter Challenge - House 013 - Rules

VihishaVihisha Posts: 2,761 Member
GAME SET UP FOR THOSE CONTINUING THE FULL 24 HOUSE CHALLENGE
-Built Lots in Oasis Springs and Willow Creek worlds may be replaced (with the same lot type)
-You are free to evict and/or delete any Sims except The Heir from House 012
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 013
-Evict any Sims who are living on the Cacti Casa Lot in Oasis Springs world
-Demolish the Cacti Casa Lot
-Set the Cacti Casa Lot to Residential
All other worlds and vacation destinations may be built upon or populated however you'd like

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, 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 013)
*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 013 without losing all prior world progress

THE PLAYABLE SIMS THIS HOUSE CHALLENGE ARE:
-All Sims in the Active Household

REQUIRED GOALS OF HOUSE 013

*When The Heir reaches the Young Adult stage, you must stop game play and save if you are continuing on to House 014

ALL ABOUT THE HEIR

    plum, getting someone that's not going to be in the house from Day 1 to the top of a career branch is going to be a challenge. Kind of wish I'd given Virginia a sibling now. Well I have a bit of time yet before I have to worry about this one, I'll get a game plan together :D
  • VihishaVihisha Posts: 2,761 Member
    Ahhh...having a game plan on HOW in the world 2 complete this is a must!! :wink: Just remember that ALL household Sims r playable...so quite possibly a strategy from a previous house will help u come up w/a way!

    Another birthday party, another dead caterer. I will never learn.

    On the upside, I ran into a couple of Virginia's distant relatives.

    *question not related 2 this thread necessarily, but I've been meaning 2 ask* How's the TS3 Drifter Challenge working out!?
    rXyqmuX.jpg
  • tammyjo329tammyjo329 Posts: 2,725 Member
    Hi Vi,

    It is working out great. I am having fun making up mini-challenges for sims 3 as well as playing your drifter challenges in sims 4. Your challenge was and is a great inspiration for me. Modifying it a bit to work with sims 3 was relatively easy.

    Here is a link to my sims 3 drifter blog site if you want to check out my mini challenges so far: https://tamssims3adventures.wordpress.com/
    I've categorized them by expansion packs necessary for each mini-challenge.
  • VihishaVihisha Posts: 2,761 Member

    @theamazinglee, welcome back! I see on your blog that you have already completed it! Congrats! I'll read your story once I have completed this challenge.

    I'm about to start with this house challenge. Now it's make-over time!

    My sim Emily Romeo has got the traits childish, creative and good. Her aspiration is Master Chef. I just got Parenthood Game pack, so she also has got the responsible trait.
