    I found m back :)
    So once I am at house 3, I will place my palmtree park.
    I might start this challenge with a boy named Justin Bieber btw, since he's the only household I didn't lose (yes, I love his new album) and he's the first sim I ever based of a real person with facial expression.

    @Fennadev - Yay! :smiley: I'm so glad you found them! Kudos! I hope you can still have fun with starting over. One thing you can do to help keep those saved games is to get a pen-drive(jump drive, USB storage stick) and copy your save games over to it. They don't take up much space and it's a great way to back-up. Also, upload your lots and sims to the Origin gallery so you'll always have them. Have fun! :)

    @Fennadev Whew! I'm so glad that you've got them all again :smiley: I would have been so sad about that...

    GREAT tips @Plaizealot You're 1 smart cookie!! :wink:

    I restarted this challenge at house 1, so expect me to make another house 1 & 2, since I just love making houses.
    We started with catching an electronic part and selling it for 120 simoleons:

    And what baby would come out of this match:

    X

    She is not only cute clothing (which is a miracle in the sims), but I also already discovered she is a goofball and cheerful, perfect traits already!

    They are talking right now and getting along just well, since Justin is a goofball as well :)

    Btw, should I blog this story or not, I never did a blog thing before and I also don't know how to do it, but I would love to make a little story out of this challenge.

    @Fennadev - It looks like you're off to a good start. It seems you ended up with 2 great catches there! She is a cutie-pie! Have fun and good luck! :wink:

    Hello Everyone!

    I have put this challenge to bed for a while. Even though I am *on* house 5, it's getting too boring, and I have a feeling that I wouldn't have passed that one. So.... I moved those save files to a special little corner, and I'm going to try a different way of gameplay. I'll be back, I just don't know when. Besides, lately I really haven't been in the mood *to* actually play. Could it be weather-related? Probably. I do know that because of the weather, I haven't felt good. Sneezing, coughing, constantly blowing my nose..... yeah - the good ol' cra. aappy sinus head cold. :s


    Any way..... I hope y'all are still having fun with YOUR challenges! Take care`

    @Vihisha
    I just made my blog and posted the very first day of the drifter challenge. I was so stupid not to picture their first kiss, but I guess I will do a regular kiss for the blog first kiss ;)

    @MsPrissy88 Aw, I hope you feel better soon and happy simming with other challenges/legacies!

    Is there away to remove all the plots without having to go through each one and remove them? I thought about doing willow creek.
  • PlaizealotPlaizealot Posts: 176 Member

    @OncerFan4Life - Not that I'm aware of... I had to do the same (one by one) since the map that @lessthanzero1013 offers for the Drifter Challenge was made with expansion packs installed and is not compatible for "Base Game" players. What you might want to do once you've painstakingly removed all the lots is to make a seperate game save and call it something like Empty Willow, if you're only clearing Willow Springs. Just a thought. :)

    Duh, correction - Willow Creek. There's actually a neighborhood near me irl called Willow Springs - LOL
  • VihishaVihisha Posts: 2,767 Member
    @Fennadev I added your blog 2 the list on House 001 thread :smiley:

    @OncerFan4Life It's as @Plaizealot said. Unfortunately clearing out the worlds can take some time, but if u make sure 2 save it a couple times...you'll not have 2 clear it all out again :smiley:

    Posted this in the House 12 thread, but i thought some of you who are familiar with my families' history with bears might enjoy this:

    Daniel was busy gathering for some more dough when he got a text from his brother. BEAR NIGHT AT THE BAR!!! Of course he had to go! Now, if you know my history with bears, you can probably already guess how this went...

    Fun fact: When you fight a bear, the command is 'wrestle' instead of 'fight'. Unfortunately, Daniel lost :s
  • VihishaVihisha Posts: 2,767 Member
    @MocaJava it's a pity he lost..but the bears had it coming LOL >:)

    Going through page by page, thourughly enjoying myself! One more for V's fanclub thats for sure! But I feel I do neither have the time nor patience to wait til page 60+ to see if my questions have been answered. So sorry for double posting.

    1) You have to have 1000$ to travel outside your comfortzone etc to Granite Falls for example. But do I have to PAY 1000$ each time?
    2) Cleptomaniac trait - is that allowed?
    3) OK, the value of the house/lot - is that the number I see under the information button in build mode? Or where do I find it?
    3) There is one more question, but it is a bit spoily so I post that in the House 002 section!

    @Bloudwed Glad 2 hear you're having fun sifting through pages & pages of fun LOL...dont' worry about "double posting" I'm ALWAYS happy 2 answer any questions u may have! I have a fan club?!?! :smiley:
    Anyways...the answers 2 your questions:
    1. Anytime a loading screen happens..u need 2 have @ least $1k cash on hand..u do NOT need 2 actually "pay" this amount u just have 2 have it as cash on hand
    2. U may select the Kleptomaniac trait...it's NOT off limits
    3. In Build Mode there is a house/i icon....top left of that window says "lot value" that's where that info can b found (pretty sure that's where u were saying..but I just wanted 2 make sure)

    Thank you for putting my mind at ease! I have the best plan ever for my house 001 (to be played house 002)! Too bad s/he had yet to be born.....

    It's been like forever and a day since I've last posted a picture on here. And I wanted to add the few pictures I do have, which are the before and after pics of house 001 and 002, but I can't remember how to do it.
