PostSubject: lionpaws Drifter Challenge Attempt   lionpaws Drifter Challenge Attempt EmptySat 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.

lionpaws Drifter Challenge Attempt Brycen10


-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.

lionpaws Drifter Challenge Attempt 09-22-10

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

lionpaws Drifter Challenge Attempt 09-24-10

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

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

lionpaws Drifter Challenge Attempt Javon_10


-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.

lionpaws Drifter Challenge Attempt Javon_10


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

lionpaws Drifter Challenge Attempt 08-26-10


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

lionpaws Drifter Challenge Attempt 08-26-11


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

lionpaws Drifter Challenge Attempt 08-26-12


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

lionpaws Drifter Challenge Attempt Javon_11



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

House 005


Main Sim
lionpaws Drifter Challenge Attempt House010

Secondary Sim
lionpaws Drifter Challenge Attempt House011



- Aride Ridge Residential Lot
- Oasis Springs
- Lot Size 40x30

- move in Main Sim and Secondary Sim



Goals:

+  House: 3bedroom; 2bathroom; $100,000   check

+  Achieve level 10 Painting Career (Patron of the Arts branch)  check

+  Achieve level 10 Painting Career (Master of the real branch)  check

Photography Treasure Hunt  

Spoiler:
 



Goals


Nevion was the first to reach the top of his career:

lionpaws Drifter Challenge Attempt House012



to give him something to do I sent him to do the photography treasure hunt.

I added a small basement with photo studio to the house:

lionpaws Drifter Challenge Attempt 01-03-10

lionpaws Drifter Challenge Attempt Photot10

And Nevion achieved the top photography skill.

lionpaws Drifter Challenge Attempt Drifte11




When Callico reached level 9 of her career, fate hit her hard:

Nevion passed away. They created his remains a peaceful place in the back of the house

lionpaws Drifter Challenge Attempt Drifte12


Then, a day short of her reaching the top of her career she passed away herself. I replayed from when Nevion was still alive two more times and the same thing happened every time.
Since Callico didn't have a death flower to get another day out of Grim I decided to cheat a little: I let her have a youth potion the fourth turn I played the end of this episode.
And she reached the top of her career.

lionpaws Drifter Challenge Attempt Drifte10



Nevion wanted to rejoin the household and I allowed it.
