The Drifter Challenge - House 014 - 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 013
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 014
-Evict any Sims who are living on the Potters Splay Lot in Willow Creek worlds
-Demolish the Potters Splay Lot
-Set the Potters Splay 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, 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
-Sim Lifespan - Normal

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 014)
*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 014 without losing all prior world progress

THE PLAYABLE SIM THIS HOUSE CHALLENGE IS:
-The Drifter (the previous heir coming from House 013 if you are continuing)

-Make a display room to show them all off


4. Produce and raise The Heir to the Young Adult life stage
*When The Heir reaches the Young Adult stage, you must stop game play and save if you are continuing on to House 015

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

    I like this house! I'm having fun with it.
    https://driftwoodlegacy.wordpress.com/house-014/
    I also just discovered how to schedule posts on wordpress so whoooo.
  • illusieillusie Posts: 10,947 Member
    I'm almost done with house 13. I only have to wait for 1 more promotion and have 8 days left.
    I'm already taking a look at the rules. I haven't tried this aspiration before so it should be fun. Also, I never completed the mysims collection. I hope it is not too hard.

    @illusie I like Aron - he's cute. :smile:

    I've made a good start with Natasha. Still lawn living but she's doing a lot of collecting and has started a garden for the botanical aspiration. She's also moved in her friend Masato Ishikawa. They're just friends at the moment but something might develop, lol.
  • illusieillusie Posts: 10,947 Member
    Thank you @Karise. I haven't played in a while so I think Aron was still on his first few days. I was distracted by create-a-sim. I made many male sims and am currently working on pets.

    Great that you made a good start! That sounds promissing you moved in a friend for her. I hope something does develop!

    After seeing you started this house challenge, I started to play again. Aron is currently dating Stephanie.

    They had some awkward moments but things seem to go well now. She keeps calling him to go on dates.
  • KariseKarise Posts: 1,096 Member
    @illusie That's great. Stephanie's really pretty.

    Natasha and Masato became a couple and now have twin boys - Owen and Oliver. They also have a basic house. Natasha is half-way through the renaissance aspiration and is doing well with her garden. I'm even doing well with the My Sims Trophies! I've never completed that collection so I'm hoping to do so now.
  • illusieillusie Posts: 10,947 Member
    edited June 2018
    Thank you! I felt lucky that he met her so soon.
    Aron is still doing lawn living and just bought a shower. Only 2 My sims Trophies so far. When he has enough money he will buy a double bed and ask Stephanie to marry him. But still a bit of saving to do!

    Congrats on the twins!! It sounds like you are doing great! Which other aspiration are you going to try to complete? Do any of your sims have a job? I never completed that collection either. The only one I have completed before is the one of the postcards.
