PostSubject: lionpaws Drifter Challenge Attempt   Sat Jan 06, 2018 10:33 am

So last summer I started this challenge. It has a lot of what I really like in playing Sims, first of all: b.u.i.l.d.i.n.g.
And second I always loved the starting from scrap in challenges like the legacies or the Rosebud challenge.
And third there are individual challenges for each round that keep the playing interesting.

It's the Drifters Challenge by Vihisha
I found at the official forum.

I don't have much time to play or do anything related to Sims, so this challenge will probably take me a long long time.
Currently I have started the 4th house and thought I might share my progress here.

Thank you EQ.

I was allowed to build a restaurant on The Futures Past lot in Oasis Springs. That's when the famous "Bryce's Beach Diner" came into being.


House 002

I decided to give my Grove family a heritage: all heirs will have the Loves the Outdoors trait and they will carry 1 perfect Dragon Fruit, worth $80. They can plant the fruit after having earned the 80 Simoleaons, which will then be deducted from their funds.




-Crick Cabana Residential Lot
-Willow Creek
-Lot Size 20x15



Goals:

+  House: 2bedroom; 1bathroom; $40,000  check
+  Marry and THEN Move-In a "working Sim" (examples: Mail Carrier, Gardener, Pizza Delivery)  check
+  Complete the Outdoor Enthusiast Aspiration
(You may NOT begin working on the Outdoor Enthusiast Aspiration until your heir is of Child life stage or higher)  check
+  Heir: Landon  check



Goals

Moved in the Nanny, he got his own room too.



All went to Granite Falls after Landon's child birthday - Brycen started the Outdoor Enthusiast aspiration.



Brycen fulfilled the aspiration, but died two days before Landon would have his Young Adult birthday. I opted to have Landon age up early.






House 002

And here comes House 003:


House 003




-Sultry Springside Residential Lot
-Oasis Springs
-Lot Size 30x20



Goals:

+ House: 2bedroom; 1bathroom; $40,000  check

+ Complete the Angling Ace Aspiration on the Main Sim  check

+ Achieve level 10 of the Gardening skill on the Main Sim  check

+ Achieve level 10 of the Fishing skill on the Main Sim  check

=> Please note:  Upon reaching level 10 in both Gardening and Fishing you may now Build or Place a Park on the Desert Bloom Park Lot in Oasis Springs.  This lot, Hare Square Lot in Windenburg, Myshuno Meadows Lot in San Myshuno as well as The Grotto (off the park in Oasis Springs) are now considered unlocked and can be visited  check

+ Acquire a Cow Plant and collect 5 unique Essence potions by interacting with it  check

+ Heir: Javon  check




Goals

First goal met was the Cow Plant essences



Next was Gardening and then Fishing; I build my own park on the Desert Bloom lot: Plumbbob Science Park

 -  

Without access to the Grotto (couldn't max Handiness skill in time) I struggled to get all the types of fish I needed, but I made it!





House 003











Plumbbob Science Park








That's all I have finished until now.
I'm currently at house 004, I will post the Main Sim and requirements soon.

Thank you ladies.

@daisylee: the rules, yeah, I think they were one of the things I shied away from when I first heard about this challenge way way back when it started.
Last summer I looked for inspiration and I was almost going to start on Murkland, but then I read through their rules ... thinkin ... I thought they were complicated like something I read long ago and remembered the drifter challenge.
So I went back to that and found that it was cut out for me. Don't know why I haven't seen this before  Head Desk  
Now I'm hooked.

House 004.2




-Riverside Roost Residential Lot
-Willow Creek
-Lot Size 30x20



Goals:

+ House: 2bedroom; 1bathroom; $50,000   check

+ Achieve level 10 of the Rocket Science skill   check

+ Achieve level 10 of the Scientist career   check

+ Travel to Sixam   check

+ Acquire at least three unique items exclusive to the Get To Work Expansion Pack
Geodes, Space Rocks, Plants, Metals, Crystals or Elements   check

+ Befriend and Move In an Alien  check

+ Heir : Nevion check




This is actually my second attempt. In the first one Javon died before he could reach the top of the scientist career.


Goals

Easiest to achieve was the level ten in Rocket Science.




Being a Mad Scientist (level9) gave Javon the opportunity to upgrade his rocket to travel to Sixam, which he did on a weekend:




he brought with him some strange stone balls, which turned out to be geodes that looked pretty nice once polished




The following week he befriended Anahi John who he had met on Sixam and convinced her to move in with him and his family




And then shortly after celebrating his elder birthday Javon was promoted to Extraterrestrial Explorer (level 10 scientist career) - finally





Nevion is a teen right now, he just has to grow up and we can start on House 005 Smile

Pictures of the house will be up loaded soon

Yeah, especially because it actually would mean the failure of the house challenge.

How could he dare! VikgAxMad

Thank you all for your support BlowingKiss

I updated the House 004 post above as far as I got.
I had to go a second round with this Laughing, but it's all good now.
The house pictures I will shoot when I actually move on to the next lot. Not much longer now Smile
