PostSubject: Zombie Aftermath Challenge (Update: Page 15)   Sun Apr 13, 2014 6:34 pm

I decided to attempt Cannibalcupcake's Zombie Aftermath Challenge.  

I've modified the challenge a bit, but not too much.  Here is what I did modify:  I am allowing a pond in the walled off property. Thus this is allowing access to water & fishing.  Not running water, but a water source that would allow my sims to bath occasionally.  For my challenge I will allow a bath once a week.  Think of Little House on the Prairie. I also will be building an outhouse for when my toilet inside "craps" out.  I think this makes sense because if I had survived a zombie apocalypse and had the pick of the town to settle down in; I'd choose a site that was able to be defended, had a water source and I'd dig an outhouse to keep things as sanitary as possible. I am using old fashioned sinks, tubs, etc. that could be used with buckets of water.  

CC I used:

Wolfspryte's Dry Sink

ShinoKCR Medieval Tub

Mikeaus69's Rainwater Tank System

Lisen801's ECO Toliet

ATS Vegetable Storage Chest

MerryMakers Baby Crib

Ihawk07's Castaway Kids/Nursery Set

Pilar's Magic Forest 2 - Buho Crib

ATS Baby Bassinet

ShinoKCR's Gypsy Kitchen

BuffSumm's Build Your Own Campground


I'm using Nigalkins' Roseward Zombie Apocalypse World.  This world is amazing and gives a realistic feel to this challange.  I'll have to "rebuild" it as generations go by too - which I love.  That's if I can manage to stick it out that long!

Edit: Well I've had to move worlds due to the routing in Roseward which I just couldn't continue with.  So my challenge has moved to Quadra Island by Dini60.  This is the next best thing as it has all the rabbit holes that I need, (just had to take out the school) and its fairly empty which will be great to build up with my challenge survivors.

Sunday:

Dear Diary,  We have made it through the worst of it I think.  We haven't been attacked in a few days.  We are hopeful.  Its only Marcus and I left.  We will have to carry on.  We were able to find a good piece of defensible land that someone had already fenced in! And more importantly - WATER!  There is even a bathing tub close to the pond. We were so lucky the house was in good shape and there is some space for planting.  We are hoping to plant the seeds we have left from our last trip to the store.  Marcus was able to clean out the firepit and we have plenty of wood from the trees that we took down.  At last we can have some hot food.  Marcus is a pretty good angler.  Cherry

Dear Diary,
We started planting today.  After a couple of hours, I had to go in and take a nap due to the heat!  I felt a little better and we ate some fish that Marcus caught for lunch.  Not bad! Smile  





We also had an unwelcome visitor today in the late afternoon!  I was so scared, I didn't want to leave the house for the remainder of the day.  Marcus didn't want to stay out either so we played dominoes together inside.  





We will have to finish the planting tomorrow.  I hope she doesn't come back!

Cherry

Dear Diary,
Today started out good.  We got a lot of planting done and tended to the plants already in the ground.  It was smelly business and we are SO looking forward to the weekend bath!  We both did some reading during the hottest part of the day as we were both so hot!  I felt sick again! I hope I'm not catching something!



As night started falling we noticed that we were not alone! I'm so upset, it looks like another one found us! A man this time. Like the other one, he just stood there!  



Marcus was worried about the full moon and so we made it an early day and locked up tight for the night.  Boy was he right!  We were surrounded by midnight. Thank God they weren't able to breach the fence!


Hopefully we will have a bit of a reprieve for awhile.

Cherry

Dear Diary,
Today was a good day. More planting, more weeding, but the plants are looking good and healthy!  I feel that Marcus and I are getting so much better at gardening.  We have been reading some books on it that we have and they are definitely helping.  I'm hopeful we will have some fresh fruit soon!  I'm craving apples for some reason? - weird!  Marcus has been fishing every day and its helping to keep us full and not too hungry.  Today he caught a huge frog!!!  It was delicious!



Tonight was more of the same, the same three!  I hate this!!! Marcus may have to do something about them, but so far they haven't been able to get through or over the fence!



Did I mention I can't wait for that bath!  I'm gonna start keeping Marcus up with my smelly self!  He's such a light sleeper Wink

I am pondering about the child, first generation. NO school? I guess you just skill them up? I guess no multitab thingy....which I use like mad to skill everyone up. Grrrrrrrr.  Did you ever see The Walking Dead or Revolution (no zombies in this one)?

I'll have to wait and see how the no school thing works, I've never played without the school.  My daughter and husband watch TWD, not really into it myself, but I've seen it.  I'll have to Google Revolution, that's a new one for me....

Yup! The challenge creator said to delete the mailbox and garbage can too, but I've read that can really mess up your game so I left them in.

It is like Oasis Landing where there is no school. I went ahead and added one as wanting a Sim to take a painting class there, and wanted the kids to go to school. They took a taxi to and from school there. No bus came.

Not a good idea to delete the mailbox and garbage can. It will corrupt the lot and the save unless you have some sort of Mod in place. I guess you could live on a Community /No visitors allowed lot. But that would restrict what you have on the lot. And your Sims would always want to 'Go Home'.

That's why I decided to just fence in the house separate from the mailbox.  So the mailbox is still on the lot and functional but my sims can't get to it.

I would guess if you do not pay the bills the Zombie Repoman would come and take your stuff?
