One Month One World One Year Challenge 2022

I'm posting this a few days early in case anyone has never heard of it before and might like to prepare for it and begin on January 1st. Or if anyone perhaps has questions on something in the rules that is not clear.

*Note - For those who are currently doing the challenge and intend to do it again in 2022, there are a few changes to the rules.

* * * * * * *

Have you ever admired those who start a New Year doing a one photo per day contest, for example on DeviantArt? I had an idea pop into my head on New Years Eve 2020 for a challenge similar to those, only using TS4 screenshots. I put together something I hoped would work and called it the One Month One World One Year Challenge. I intended to post one photo of my Sim's progress during a gaming session per real life day with a short text summary and started on January 1, 2021.

Along the way, others joined me with some very welcomed suggestions for improvements. Inevitably, the challenge blossomed into also telling stories of our challenge Sim's life. This wasn't my original intention for the challenge, but I loved every minute of it! It helped us to get to know our Sims better than we might've otherwise.

However, this year, I'd like to try to do the challenge closer to as originally intended, without a very long story every day including 20+ screenshots. I probably will still tell a story, but if I do, I will keep it shorter with a maximum of 5-10 screenshots. It could blossom into more again, but that's my goal anyway. Anyone else who tries the challenge is welcome to do the same.

Basic Rules/Guidelines:
  • One Photo post Per Real Life Day on the forum in this thread with a short text summary.
  • One World per Real Life month - See schedule of Worlds in spoiler below
  • Your challenge Sim MUST be a Teen to officially begin this challenge and post on the thread.
  • After three Real Life months have passed, your Sim will age up to Young Adult for four months, Adult for four months and finally, age up to an Elder for December. Timeline posted in spoiler below. Optional: How long your Sim stays in each life stage, Teen-Elder, is at your own discretion. However, please note they are required to be at least a young adult to attend Uni in Britechester.
  • Begin Rags to Riches style on an empty lot with 0 simoleans.
  • Aging off Optional: May use the long lifespan.
  • All worlds except the current world are off limits for travel. This includes attending festivals. Only worlds previously played are allowed for travel.
  • Newcrest is a 'neutral' world. Venues may be placed there for your Sim to use regardless of their current world residence. Optional: Newcrest must only be used to replace a pack you don't own.
  • Sims may take a vacation to Granite Falls, Selvadorada or Batuu if they can afford it. Rental lots in residential worlds are off limits unless your Sim has previously lived there.
  • Aspirations released with a world must be fulfilled first. May choose a base game or other pack not in the challenge aspiration to complete afterward.
  • Willow Creek, Oasis Springs, Newcrest and Magnolia Promenade may be used in substitution for worlds listed in the challenge for packs you may not own. In that event, choose one or two base game or other packs not in the challenge aspirations to complete per world.
  • Your Sim may marry and/or have children. Aging up children is at your discretion. If you plan to continue the challenge next year using an heir from this year's challenge, make sure your 'heir' is at least a teen before the end of the year.
  • School attendance is at your own discretion. May cheat for grades or buy school projects from debug to increase their grade. This is the only time cheating is allowed.
  • The beginning of each new month/world must start Rags to Riches style. Optional: Your Sim may keep personal possessions, sell the rest and bulldoze the house. They may use simoleans from this sale and accumulated household funds to build or download a house from the Gallery.
  • If your Sim dies, it's game over. Optional: You may bring them back to life and continue by any means possible.
  • Occult states and Celebrity statuses must be removed when progressing to the next month/world. Optional: May keep these lifestates, but it will make the challenge easier to complete. For my own gameplay this year, I will remove them.
  • If a new world is released with a new pack at any time during 2022, you have the option to swap the new world with another prior released world.
  • Give yourself a break if any days are missed due to internet outages, vacations/holidays, real life work/responsibilities or sickness. Just try to post one photo for every missed real life day the next day possible.
  • Extra photos may be posted here in a spoiler along with your daily post pic and short text summary. Please try to limit them to a maximum of 20 screenshots per post.
  • May use Satisfaction points to buy reward traits. Optional: Money tree seeds are not allowed.
  • Lottery tickets are not allowed for purchase. Optional: Your Sim may buy them, but my Sim will not buy lottery tickets to give myself more of a challenge.
  • Beginning season and the length of days is your choice.
  • May participate in all default Holidays, modify, delete and/or add your own.
  • Other participants may post their Daily posts in this thread, or just the required Daily post pic with a link to your preferred Blog site with additional story text/screenshots.
  • Mod friendly challenge! However, please use discretion when using them. Mods that would be considered cheating to fulfill an aspiration in a vanilla game, should not be used.

* * * * * *

Here's my Sim for the challenge.
Cale Conrad - Teen

January: Day 1

lgSgRnu.png

Traits: Hot Headed, Mean, Bonus Trait - High Metabolism
Beginning Aspiration(s): Extreme Sports Enthusiast, Mt. Komorebi Sightseer
World: Mt. Komorebi
Neighborhood: Senbamachi
Lot: 5-6-1 Shinringoku
Household Funds: 0
Beginning Season/Length: Summer/14 Days
Background:
Cale was only 3 years old when his Father, Lucas Conrad, died suddenly from a brain tumor. He had been a very stern, old-fashioned man and ruled the roost with an iron fist. His Mother, Lisa Conrad, hadn't been allowed to work, a woman's place is in the home after all. At least to his Father's reasoning. Consequently, she had minimal skills of her own other than raising Cale, keeping their home immaculate and adhering to a rigid schedule set down by her husband.

Finding herself free to do whatever she wanted for the first time since marriage, Lisa unwisely went on a wild spending spree with the modest life insurance check she'd received from her husband's policy. She and Cale lived the high life for awhile, but soon the money was gone with nothing left to pay the bills. Desperate, with the wolf knocking at the door, Lisa remarried and soon learned her new husband, Lance Lamont, was worse than the first. He had a mean streak. To her horror, Cale began to emulate the man, latching on to the only Father figure he would ever remember.

She stayed with him though feeling she had no other choice. Living with Lucas, she had learned how to be submissive to a dominant male. An unhealthy, but familiar pattern developed in Lisa and Cale's life. Over the years, Cale grew to be hot-headed and mean like his step-Father. Lance and Cale would often fight, just for fun. Not knowing any better, he worshiped the man he called Dad. One fateful day all that would change.

When Cale was 15, he came home from school hearing shouts of anger coming from inside their house. He ran inside and found Lance standing over his Mother screaming at her about a roast she had burnt. She had her head bowed crying, but turned to look at Cale when he walked through the door. When he saw what Lance had done to her face, Cale rushed the man he called Dad and tackled him to the floor. Knowing better to get in the way, Lisa ran to the bedroom and locked herself in a walk-in closet.

Cale and Lance struggled and fought, knocking over the kitchen table set for dinner and making a wreck of the room Lisa had so carefully kept immaculate for her family. The fight was somewhat even since Cale liked to keep himself fit and in fighting condition lifting weights in an effort to one day best Lance in their almost daily scuffles. At one point the two combatants fell through the front door left open by Cale and the fight continued on the front lawn.

Unbeknownst to them, they had knocked the still burning roast from the stove top. It had ended up too close to the pretty gingham curtains Lisa had hung on a window behind the counter and caught them on fire. The flames quickly spread out of control. Outside Lance landed a fierce blow to Cale's face leaving him flat on his back unconscious with a deep cut above and below his left eye.

When he woke, dizzy and dazed, the house was now fully engulfed with his step-Dad nowhere in sight. Cale heard screaming from inside the house and realized his Mother was still in there. He ran, stumbling and falling toward the house intending to save her, but it was too late. The heat from the fire was just too intense. Falling to his knees, Cale covered his face in anguish and wept as the sound of sirens from emergency vehicles approached from a distance.

Scared, still somewhat dazed and in pain from the cut and mild concussion he was suffering, Cale ran away from the burning building into the woods behind their house. He'd heard horror stories of the foster care system and wasn't about to let anyone take him away to live with strangers. The authorities searched for Cale, but were never able to find him. He'd evaded them and was long gone. Cale's story begins several weeks later after he'd made his way to Mt. Komorebi, a place far, far away from his hometown.

    So I have been following and lurking on the original version of this challenge for as long as I can remember and have enjoyed all of the stories I have read there, and thought that I would like to join in for next year with a sim I potter around with sometimes but have never committed to actually playing properly.
    And maybe playing this challenge will give me a chance to actually finish aspirations that I've never done before because my usual style of play lends itself to constantly starting things and never finishing them :D And I think it would be fun to do it all alongside other simmers here :smiley:
    So count me in! I've never played Rags to Riches style before either so it'll be cool to try out a new way to play and see if I enjoy it at all.

    I'm really excited to start!

    @Ellupelluellu - Yay! I knew you were going to do this again, but thank you! I can't wait to see your challenge Sim! I bet he'll be fantastic. :)

    @permanentrose - Yes! I was hoping you'd be joining us again too, so happy you and Robin will be along for the ride! Go Robin! :)

    @Skeilah - Hey! Well Hi there dear, so good to see you again! Would be wonderful if you do bring Bryon back into the fold and catch up at some point. Miss that blue-haired handsome Dude! :)

    @afai1261 - Wow! You have no idea how happy it makes me to find out you've been reading our stories! Thank you! Yes! Welcome! It'll be wonderful to have a new challenger joining us. I can't wait to see your challenge Sim! I'm sure he/she will be gorgeous! You make such wonderful Sims. We've never really talked, but I know we've both been in a few other challenges together. I'm somewhat the same way with longer challenges, but it looks like I'll actually be finishing the longest challenge of all I've ever tried. Ironic it's my own eh? Rags to Riches is so fun! I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. It's my favorite way to play. I'll be trying something brand new to me this year too, I hope I enjoy it as well. We shall see...soon! <3

    Introduction:
    Meet Dash Joseph Faireborn! D.J. is taking part in the "1 Month, 1 World, 1 Year Challenge" for 2022. Journey along as he travels the sim world exploring all it has to offer as he ages from a Teenager to Elder.

    dash_joseph_faireborn_01.jpg
    Teenager
    Personality Traits: Active, Loves Outdoors
    Aspiration Traits: High Metabolism, Home Turf
    Reward Traits: Always Welcome, Worldly Knowledge, Expert Mountaineer, Survival Instinct
    Likes: Music (Japanese Folk Music), Hobbies & Skills (Fitness, Rock Climbing, Skiing, Photography)
    Dislikes: Color (Yellow)
    I went ahead and deleted all default households that came with the game and packs. I'm curious and intrigued to see what new Sims the game will create and add. I selected to have the game fill all empty houses. I will also fill houses with Sims created from the 2021 challenge as well as 2022 challenge from other Sims creators taking on these challenges.

    I decided to have a little fun when it comes to the days and match some to actual holidays, but make them the Sims version. This also goes with the seasons. I found a cheat code to set what season you want it to be, so I went ahead and have the max amount of days selected and when the time is up, I'll go ahead and cheat code it back to the season I want to to remain at.

    I don't use any type of Pose Player and don't plan to in the near future. All screenshots will be game generated poses. Any photography pictures taken won't look all that good for wall hangings, but it will be fun for me.

    Download Dash Joseph Faireborn:
    If you would like to have a fresh unskilled D.J. in your gameplay as a Teenager for this Challenge or any other gameplay of yours, you can find him on the Gallery using my ID name of LegacySims2017. You can also use the hashtags of #DJ #DashJosephFairborn or #OneMonthOneWorldOneYear to find him. Because he uses custom content, you will need to select the option to Include Custom Content.

    Here is a list of custom content on D.J.
    • LumiaLoverSims_5PMPenumStubble.package
    • LumiaLoverSims_BHv4_Fine.package
    • LumiaLoverSims_OohSmooth2Male.package
    • LumiaLoverSims_TeenFacialHair.package
    • Nightcrawler_(c)AM_Hair03.package

    If you don't have these five pieces already or you cannot find them via the internet, I have compiled them into one zip file in a folder Dash Joseph Faireborn. You can download the zip file at http://legacysims.net/uploads/Dash-Joseph-Faireborn.zip (copy and paste rather than clicking the link for easy download) .

    If you have problems downloading or adding D.J. to your game, please let me know.

    Daily Posts:
    January: Mt. Komorebi
    For this month, I mostly chose clothing that came from the "Snowy Escape" Pack to outfit D.J. If I couldn't find any that I liked from the pack or there were no options for that specific outfitting, I went with Basic clothing that automatically comes with the game - no pack needed.
    February: Windenburg
    As D.J. moves to a new world to start his second adventure, he updates his look. All outfits are either base game or from the "Get Together" Pack. I want his outfits to show and feel the place where he's at.
    March: Glimmerbrook
    D.J. is forced into a new World and wasn't able to bring any clothing with him. So, all clothing will be based on the Magic Realm Pack or Basic Game.
    April: Britechester
    D.J. heads off to college, so majority of his outfits were from Discover University.
    May: StrangerVille
    D.J. is enlisted into the military because of something unknown. Because of this, his outfits for this month are military outfits that were game content or custom content from fans who also play The Sims 4 game.
    June: Del Sol Valley
    As D.J. is now famous for what he did in StrangerVille, he heads to Del Sol Valley and ends up becoming an actor. Outfits picked were from the Get Famous Pack!

    @LegacySims2017 - Thank you, I'm glad you've been enjoying our stories and thrilled you'll be joining us again! :) The reason I left out the option to go to festivals if invited was to make it more challenging. Last year, Essa went to the Romance Festival the first week and harvested all the rare/expensive plants for her garden. As a result, she ended up with too many simoleans too early. That was my choice though, I didn't have to send her.

    However, I also feel it's somewhat cheating for the challenge since our Sim is not supposed to visit any other worlds unless they have completed the aspiration(s) associated with it first. Newcrest can be a neutral world to visit though, depending on your challenge set-up. I am not the challenge police though, if you'd like to send your challenge Sim to festivals if invited, then go for it! Whatever makes the challenge fun for you is the most important thing. :)

    Great set-up for your challenge, I'm excited to see who you bring and your gameplay with them. Good luck and see you next year! ;)

    This challenge sounds like so much fun! I found the original thread in August and told myself I would join for 2022 if possible. :)
    I am excited to play in a way I have never played before. I really want to use this opportunity to finally try out different aspirations and gameplay aspects. :)

    I might have to miss a day every now and then due to work and health issues. But I really am aiming for every day.

    I am thinking about posting on a tumblr blog as well, just to have a place for more screenshots.
    Thanks for the cool idea and all the work. Catching up on last years challenge for some inspo ^^

    Fixed my blog page for like 80%, but I'm ready to continue this with Bryon. I won't be doing this challenge on a daily basis, I decided that I'm gonna finish part of July (where I stopped) until December in the year 2022. I'll be following the world order I prepared for myself previous year (Granite Falls & Selvadorada to start again, after that we're going to Evergreen Harbor, San Myshuno, Forgotten Hollow, Brindleton Bay) but then I added Henford-on-Bagley, which was still Willow Creek before.

    I think I might try to jump in again too :smile: I've been faithfully reading all your updates, and yearning to get back into writing myself, but the Brittons are just too much for me right now. I do have another Sim I've been playing that's a little more low-key and would be perfect.

    I'm still not sure if I really want to commit to this since I have just so much going on - if I do it, it'll probably be once a week with the option to do more or something. If that's ok with you guys. And of course I still only have the Basegame worlds and Brindleton Bay, so I'll need to figure something out on the moving.
    And then again, I'd also need to fix my giant mess of a mods folder and set everything up in a little over a day, so... yeah. We'll see.

    But lovely to be here again! :blush:

    @KateLynne - Welcome! So happy to hear you'll be joining us for the challenge and makes me smile reading that you've followed our stories from this year! Happy too you have enough posts now to post images since I see you have a proper avatar now. :) Can't wait to see your Sim for the challenge and your gameplay! I'm excited! Only one more day! o.O

    @Skeilah - Cool, sounds like a plan! Good luck, it'll be great seeing Bryon again, all his family and friends too! :)

    @miss_eulenauge - I hope you can work things out to be able to join us. Just one note though, remember you must play with a teen. Posting someone not born yet or younger than a teen in the thread you intend to use at a later date is not allowed this year. Anyway, good luck if you are able to do the challenge! :)

    As January 1st gets closer, I am going to take the plunge and do this challenge again, with a completely new teen sim. There might be some times when I am not able to post, but I am just going to go with the flow. I have created several teen sims and have been trying to decide which one I want to use. That is the tough part right now. It's so great to see a lot of the same simmers continuing, and new simmers, as well, starting the challenge. It will be exciting!

    Opps, wrong thread! :D Almost missed the deadline, got confused with two threads.

    Anyway, @SoulGal7 Wonderful news! It is very cool having veterans of the challenge rejoin for another year and having new challengers join us! I'm so happy y'all like this challenge enough to try it again or try it for the first time. Good luck picking one of your teens for next year. I myself posted a poll because I couldn't decide between two guys either! Perhaps try that? Just a thought... :)

    @Karababy52 thank you for the reminder! I was actually going to adhere to all that... the only major things I was planning to change was the posting frequency and the moving through worlds, if that is okay. (If not I'll think of something...)
    Will have to age up the Sim I had in mind early, but that's OK.
    It's more getting my game working and setting up the save within a day that worries me. I put off updating my mods folder for months and now it's coming back to haunt me :#
    Oh well. I'll try anyway. And otherwise I'll just have to post a wip on january first...

    Has been 2022 for couple hours now :) So..

    Happy New Year 2022!!

    I will be doing the worlds in order of first post, BUT, I will switch Brindleton Bay with Henford-on-Bagley , if it is okay to @Karababy52 ? As I do not want my sim to do all the farming as elder. (and I hate the pets aspiration, so will doing that last).

    NOTE: ALL lots have the simple living lot trait. So, no magical BBQ anywhere.

    The one with new start.

    Lot has the 32 tile foundation, so it can be made as tiny house :)

    I will not be using Newcrest, I will add lots that I need in world I play, and next month Sean can naturally visit back here too :)
    So, this is more like Tour of the city now :)

    Here we have the bar, same I edited for Melody. It is same as original, but added small bowling alley in back..
    OamUn7V.png
    He is lousy at it, btw, but hey! His first skill! BOWLING!! How useful!
    CyBgEUQ.png
    And of course, as I currently have so little amount of sims, (and all I transferred from Melody's save had already their jobs) , no bartender :D Well, he tended the bar for tips.. just no customers either :D (there was Agatha, but I chased her away, go back to world you belong!!)

    Spotted 2 familiar faces :p

    The lot where Melody used to live serves now as a base for sushi restaurant :) Surprise, no staff :joy:
    Sakura, I see you bought all your family, you have to use spells to get any food from here :joy:
    (I need to download more sims again :D )

    Last new lot was the night club :)

    A CC free version of Aaron is available to download from the gallery here

    AARON'S CC - CC version of Aaron now available on the gallery so you don't have to manually give him his CC
    If anyone has downloaded Aaron and doesn't mind using a bit of CC to make him look like how he does in my updates, here is a list of his CC and which swatches to use:
    kismetsims eyebags part two

    kismetsims nose masks

    simreaper top surgery scars part 2
    GN8wRdj.png
    He does have Luumia's body hair v4, but if anyone has v5 then that would work too. I just use v4 for Aaron in particular because it's softer and lighter :)

    So this was it. An empty lot, and not a single simoleon to his name. When he knew he had to leave, he hadn't even cared where he was going or known where he was going to end up, he just left. Maybe that had been rash. But that was in the past. He was in Mt Komorebi now.
    ~~~

    I moved Aaron into the empty lot in Mt Komorebi, set his money to $0 and sent him off to the lounge to do his homework and potentially meet some folks.
    M0br6Cz.png

    Almost instantly, one of my own sims showed up and started a conversation with him. Kinda creepy considering that Seamus here is an elder and Aaron is a teen...
    XZJ0hJe.png

    Then two more elders showed up. Really?
    AATg7za.png

    He was feeling embarrassed from an insensitive joke that Agatha told (from a mod that adds a bunch of new chat interactions)
    LGZF3QK.png

    And he was feeling tense from stranger danger so I decided he could go cool off in the river. It helps for his aspiration too:
    MJxb3jr.png
    Except he hated it because he dislikes fitness. Moving on!

    After his swim, I sent him down to the lounge again for free bar chips. This has honestly been a (literal) lifesaver for this struggling broke dude :joy:
    Z262lki.png

    Aaron made his first simoleons by badly playing the piano and getting some tips.
    CmMXiJE.png

    Then I finally realised where the fishing spot is :D
    FaYWym2.png

    Then he stargazed and went to bed on the bench in the park
    J784X7t.png
    lEtOMXe.png

    So that's where I'll end my first post for this challenge! I have played much more than this but I don't want to spam with too many screenshots. This update does cover only one sim day but subsequent updates may cover more depending on how many interesting things happen :)

    Also! Depending on how lazy I am feeling when I write up these updates (lol), this may turn into a story of some sorts later on but for now it'll just be a gameplay thing, no dialogue or anything just yet.

    Sadly, I missed out on this challenge last year. :( I’m so excited to see that you’re doing it again. Currently working on creating my teen! Hoping to get my first post up tomorrow.
  • permanentrosepermanentrose Posts: 3,034 Member
    Oh wow, we have a male sim heavy challenge this year so far! I love it - quite different from last year haha. I'll be the odd one out for now with my female sim ;) I'm excited to introduce her tomorrow! Great starts, @Ellupelluellu and @afai1261! I'm excited to see your sims' adventures!

    I have been gone from the forums for a while (real life getting in the way) but was interested in this challenge when I saw it last year. I am thinking of joining along with you this year as I really am struggling to find a save that I will stick with. Going to re-read the updated rules and some of the previous thread posts and get started on this with everyone else that is joining.

    Happy New Year to everyone by the way!

    Meet Robin Keyes

    vTEIP1f.jpg

    Background Info
    Traits: Vegetarian, Child of the Ocean
    Starting Aspiration: Extreme Sports Enthusiast
    Starting Season: Winter (14 day seasons)

    Robin is the daughter of my 2021 challenge sim, Jules Warner. Another fun fact about Robin too is that she's the granddaughter of the first sim I ever created back in 2017 when I got the game too, so she's a super special sim :) Robin has recently celebrated her teen birthday and she's feeling restless and anxious to get out of the sleepy town of Henford-On-Bagley. Enamored with her mother's stories of her travels and her time spent soul searching as a teen, Robin has insisted on doing the same, and is off to explore the world.

    So Robin was born in Sulani in my challenge from last year when both her parents were mermaids, thus leading to Robin being a mermaid as well. I changed her family members back when they moved to the next world, but since Robin was born a mermaid, I decided to keep her as one. Since the mermaid occult state doesn't help with any aspirations directly or really even have any perks that would make gameplay significantly easier (at least that I can think of off the top of my head), I'm gonna keep her as a mermaid until I need to have her take on another occult state for any upcoming worlds.

    Also, Robin has a dog named Pepper that she's had since childhood, and since I played with pets well before getting to Brindleton Bay last year, I decided I'll add the challenge of Robin having her pup with her from the start. If the dog gets to be too much, then I'll send her back home to live with Robin's family, but I wanted to try it out for now :)

    Robin has a few sentimental items she's keeping from my challenge last year. First she has several family photos from over the years. She also has one of my favorite paintings that Jules has done, and her birth certificate. I decided she could have Jules' SimRay too, as a running gag from last years challenge :D Jules also wrote her a Book of Life, which she has done for all of her children now. Her father, Emmett, made the dragon sculpture and gave her the zen garden, one of his work rewards that Robin always loved playing with growing up. Her brother, Rowan, gave her the fish tank since he's always loved fishing and hopes she will too. Her other brother, Riley, gave her the journal so she could chronicle her adventures (I am toying with doing a diary style format for this year). And her sister Ruby gifted her a Lil Grim that she knitted, and the conch shell is a souvenir from when they lived in Sulani last year, the world where Robin was born. I will not sell any of these items either - Robin's funds are at zero and she will be completing this challenge rags to riches style.

    So I did start a new save, since I wanted to start fresh, but I did move a lot of sims that were important in last year's save over to this one, so I'll introduce them when necessary. Also if any premades were important to last year's story, I aged them up and gave them kids accordingly, but if they didn't play a role in my story last year or were deleted from my save, then they stayed as is for this challenge.

    January 1
    And for a little bit of gameplay for an official update :)

    It was too cold to fish, but Robin was able to do some digging. She found fossil which she was able to sell.

    With her newly earned money, she purchased Pepper a food dish.

    She went to explore town a bit and found a pop up skating rink.

    "Hello, you must be Robin!" A woman greeted her as she exited the rink. "You look a lot like your mom! I'm Kaori - your mom and I have been friends for years now. She mentioned that you were moving here for a bit, so I thought I'd keep an eye out for you. Please let me know if you need anything. I have two kids about your age too, so stop by anytime." Robin thanked her. Even though she was determined to survive on her own, it was nice to know her parents were looking out for her.

    She autonomously purchased a burger from the vending machines, and I was worried since she's a vegetarian, but I guess they're not real meat since she was okay :D

    She got a head start on some homework too. I'm keeping her in school for now, even though I can use MCCC cheats to have her drop out.

    It was late in the day already since I had done some behind the scenes stuff which ate up some of my sim hours, so Robin decided it was time to try and get some sleep.

    Robin's CC
    There is a CC version of Robin in the gallery as well, and here's the link to her CC if you feel so inclined to include it :)

    Cleavage overlay: https://www.mediafire.com/file/q94zvq6ji0rqghm/heihu-niunai_cleavageoverlay_tattoo.package/file

    Lashes: https://www.mediafire.com/file/9tdy3pf79va7fhe/Kijiko+Eyelashes.package/file (honestly I don't know what version I have of these so I just uploaded what I have to mediafire, but I feel like a lot of people use kijiko lashes so just give her something from your game if they don't download haha)

    Since she has 3 different CC hairstyles, I didn't upload her with those since I'm pretty content with the ones I found in the game to match, however if you did want them, here are the links:

    https://www.patreon.com/posts/52984778

    However, if you have the Dream Home Decorator pack, I do think this hair style matches better than the one I used for her down hairstyles. I just don't have that pack :)

    January 1: New Year, New Adventure!
    It's winter time in Mt. Komorebi. D.J. arrives to his new home located on 2-4-1 Wakabamori, Wakaba. It's an empty piece of land. Unfortunately, D.J has no simoleons to build anything. He can't even afford to build a fire.

    dj-01-001.jpg

    What D.J. could do, was spend time at the local joints such as the Hazakura Lounge and the bar called Izakaya Ippai to make acquaintances. Maybe even score some free food from the bartenders on duty. Mainly just chips and water. Not really healthy, but will keep D.J. from starving.

    dj-01-002.png

    He would also have to hide away to get some rest. D.J. can't very well sleep out in the snow. Especially in the middle of winter where wind storms are blowing the snow hard. A comfy couch will suit his needs until he can afford something of his own.

    Is it gonna be a 90% male Sim challenge this year? :P I mean I obviously love it hehe. Good luck to all the contestants!

    Today I'm gonna give y'all a little recap of where I stopped last year. You can find my entire progress on my blog page, so if you want to know more about Bryon, Naoki, the kids, the rest of their family, the story in general, ... I suggest you to head there! There are a lot of people out there in the story, like Bryon's brothers, important friends in Bryons life, but also the big enemy called Curse. Yesyes, got curious already? :p

    Anyways, off to the recap!

    07-05-21-10-16-22-pm_orig.png
    From left to right: Randi (Bryon's mom) - Bryon (my Challenge Sim) - Audrey (Bryon and Naoki's alien daughter) - Naoki (Bryon's husband) - Alex (Bryon and Naoki's alien son) - Maria (Naoki's mom) - Hana (Naoki's sister) - Kristine (Bryon's half-sister)
    The family Ellison-Saito went on a much deserved vacation in Sulani.

    dajpyem_orig.png
    Bryon's friend, Duane, arranged everything for the family to have a great time.

    07-07-21-3-04-31-pm_orig.png
    Too bad it rained so much, but that didn't stop Bryon from completing the Beach Life Aspiration.

    07-10-21-4-14-52-pm_orig.png
    Anyways, after completing the aspiration, the family went to Granite Falls to celebrate Christmas there.

    07-10-21-6-22-11-pm_orig.png
    Both Naoki and Hana were alien-pregnant at the time, and they gave birth to their kids on the very same day. Hana got a daughter named Melissa, Naoki and Bryon a second son named Noël (after 'Christmas').

    07-14-21-4-19-26-pm_orig.png
    They stayed in Granite Falls for a long amount of time, since I'm not swapping worlds until I finished the Outdoor Enthusiast Aspiration. And that's where I stopped! We'll continue this family vacation in Granite Falls - :)

    First of all, Happy New Year everyone! It's so exciting to see all your first posts!
    I fired up my game and started playing. I will also post on my old Simblr, since I need a way to upload the screenshots anyway and since I feel like it'll be fun look through later.
    You can find my simblr here: swandiaries.tumblr.com

    Anyways, meet Mackenzie McGraw (she mostly goes by Kenzie though). She is an Extreme Sports Enthusiast who loves the outdoors and is a bit of a glutton. :’)

    Kenzie left home to pursue an extreme sports carreer. Her parents are always working and traveling and when Kenzie told them about an opportunity in Mt. Komorebi they just signed off on it without any hesitation.

    Kenzie told them that she had been accepted to a sports boarding school and decided to use her allowance to secure a place in Mt. Komorebi.
    Being on her own and without a roof over her head is quite the challenge, but Kenzie is determined to achieve her dream.

    Day One
    Kenzie made it to Mt. Komorebi! After quickly checking in with her parents she decided to get some info on the town hotspots.

    Kenzie invited her only friend from school to show off her new "home".

    Gemma: "Dude, why are you doing your homework now? You should really get some money."
    Kenzie: *sighs* "I guess you're right..."

    Kenzie spend her afternoon digging for treasure and hounding Judith for an autograph. Once she aquired the autograph she sold it for 50 bucks.

    Kenzie decided to head to the Onsen since it's still so cold out. After selling the autograph she decided to splurge on some vending machine food.
    Things did not go as planned.
    Kenzie: "Curse you darned vending machine! I WILL HAVE MY DINNER!" *bodyslams*

    Thankfully Kenzie got her food and wasn't crushed by the machine. (That would have ended the challenge rather quickly...)

    I hope I did everything correctly, if I need to adjust something please let me know!
    Also @Karababy52 thank you! I was so excited when to upload an icon after creating my challenge Sim. :3 It was great to have done that alreay, so I could start playing today. :)
