The Drifter Challenge - House 016 - Rules

VihishaVihisha Posts: 2,767 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)
-Place a Museum on the Municipal Muses lot in Willow Creek
-You are free to evict and/or delete any Sims except The Heir from House 015
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 016
-Evict any Sims who are living on the Yuma Heights Lot in Oasis Springs world
-Demolish the Yuma Heights Lot
-Set the Yuma Heights 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)

-Sell or Delete any objects that The Drifter has brought along in their inventory
*If you choose to keep any items, you must deduct the cost of the object(s) from the Active Household Funds before ANY other object(s) are allowed to be purchased
-Drop the Active Household Funds to $0 Simoleons (testingcheats on + Money 0)
-Save your game
-Make a backup save (start of House 016)
*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 016 without losing all prior world progress

THE PLAYABLE SIMS THIS HOUSE CHALLENGE ARE:
-The Drifter (the previous heir coming from House 015 if you are continuing)
*The Sim you created if you are doing just House 016
-The Heir
*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

Those working on the full 24 House Challenge keep track of which objects from this list that The Heir crafts (amounts are not necessary):
-Bar Stool
-End Table
-Dining Chair
-Dining Table
-Guitar
-Violin
-Wooden Bathtub
-Wooden Toilet

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 017

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

    @vihisha this house looks awesome, cant wait to get to it. Although since I started back from the beginning I have only made it back to house 5. I am sorely tempted to skip ahead. I might, I haven't decided yet. lol. Between this, my 100 baby and a legacy challenge I started to prepare for the dine out expansion that came out today (I wanted to create a legacy family to run a family dinner), I am not going thru the houses as fast and it is putting me way behind on the houses. I may jump back to house 12 which is where I left off and catch up then if I have extra time in between go back and do the other houses again in between. We'll see. Any way I decide to go will be fun so I cant lose. Happy drifting. :wink:

    I'm definitely going to skip ahead. I'm going to create a new family line/Sim and begin here. Should I create/place the community lots that were allowed in previous challenges? Or just start in a fresh world?

    Edit: I've already begun. I couldn't help myself. I started with a fresh world and a new family founder. His name is David Drake. He is in the gallery. And he's a best friend with a female that was housemates with Vihisha's sim self. lol

    Updates:
    David is now level eight in the handiness skill and has been upgrading many things. I'm having a lot of fun with this challenge!
    With eight days to go before both of them become adults, Christina is now eating for two. Yes! The heir is on the way. :smiley:

    Maybe its just me, but she looks awfully big for only being in her 2nd trimester. Who guesses she might have more than one? Raise your hand. *raises hand* lol

    Results of the big baby belly......

    It's a girl! And only one. I'm surprised. The baby is named Naomi Drake. :smiley:


    XXXXXXXXXX

    Edit to add:

    Question for @Vihisha.... "- You may take one of each of the following items to House 017
    - These must all be crafted by your Heir" ......... Is this the heir that will inherit 017, or the heir I'm playing with now that is the YA/Adult, etc for house 016?

    Edit to add:

    Three daughters and mom is pregnant again.
    Naomi (heir), Terra, Raina

    David is an adult now and as you know from the news above has maxed his handiness skill. I've been sending him to the grotto (with 1k+ in the funds. He's level 8 fishing already but no bat fish. I'm using frogs as bait. Am I doing something wrong? Am I fishing in the wrong spot? Upgrades on everything are almost complete.

    @Vihisha Sounds great! I'll put Naomi on learning the handiness skill as soon as she becomes a teen. As for catching a batfish, I feel like such an plum. I've not been going to the grotto. I've been going to sylvan glade. He's level 9 in fishing already and no batfish. Now I know why. I've been fishing in the wrong spot. *mega face palms* LOL


    Edit to add:


    He did it! (When he actually started fishing in the right spot. lol)

    06-18-16_2-59-23nbspPM_zpsql8hiegv.png



    Edit to add: David's fourth child has been born. Finally, its a boy! Charlie Drake is his name.



    Another edit: Naomi (heir) has become a teenager! Her handiness training has begun. Here she is in the outfit and hairstyle she aged up in.

    Thanks! I just happened to hit pause at the right time. When the 'catching new fish' notice came up, I zoomed in and hovered over the pause. And yay! It was a bat fish. It was the second thing he caught in that location. lol I have enjoyed this challenge very much! I can't wait until the next one. :smiley:
