TS4- Drifter Challenge 001.1: Brock Rover

Chapter 1

TS4_x64 2016-06-03 21-24-26-83

Meet Brock Rover.  Painter extraordinaire, creative, loves the outdoors and a bit of a geek.  He’s a drifter.  Looking to make a life for himself in this barren landscape and hopefully find someone to share that life with.

I have to say out of all of the sims that I’ve played over the years Brock is one of the happiest and most photogenic.  I have a bit of a crush on him so a lot of the screenies will just be me fangirling over him.

Since he’s a geek he really enjoys finding collectables.

I did download the empty neighborhood so I have Vi and Less than Zero in my game.  One thing I did do that the rules say not to was delete all of the households from Windenburg.  I’m confused by that rule.  I always delete the pre-made sims and I just get the hidden maxis clubs like the cosplay club.

I got Brock a bush to “fertilize” because having a toilet just sitting in the corner of the lot seems odd when we have this option.  The only reason I could think of that nobody seems to do it is that it might be cheaty since you can sleep in the bush but yuck he’s not sleeping in that stinky thing!

He’s really excited about those hotdogs!

He spends the first few nights on the bench by his lot.  Notice the bush?  Yuck no napping in there!

Ah the great outdoors.  Grilling some fruit and enjoying nature.

Well hello Vi want to me my friend?  Meh, she ends up walking away shortly after I took the shot.

Boy really needs a shower!

He starts a small garden with the plants that are either profitable or good for cooking with.

Finally a shower!

This little boy is Jensen.  He entertained Brock for a bit.  What a cutie!

I’m not exactly sure who Christina is but she came with the neighborhood.  She’s the blonde.  The black haired girl turns out to be an alien.  Brock was really proud of himself for figuring it out.

Chapter 2


Chapter notes:

This is my first post written in WordPress.  Everything that I’ve published since I moved from Blogger was imported from Blogger.  I have to say I’m a bit confused about some things… like the spacing.  But I’ll figure it out eventually.  So if this turns out looking awful bear with me.  I’ll go back and edit it once I figure things out.

I’ve been pretty obsessed with The Drifter Challenge since I first started seeing it on Twitter.  I’ve watched some YouTube videos and have read the rules for house 0001 like 20 times.  I was going to put off starting the challenge but changed my mind.  If I’m doing something wrong by all means let me know.  This chapter is somewhere around the first 3 days and I’ve already played out the next 3 days as well so any tips might be a bit late.

The Drifter Challenge was created by Vihisha.  You can find the details on the forums here: House 001.

    1. Some of this is very similar to the Runaway Teen Challenge and in fact the lot is the same lot I used for the first version of it so other than not being sure when to have the heir I’m feeling pretty confident. Ha! Watch me fail my first try.

  2. Love it – I started mine the same way! Bush and a camping shower – sure it’s more expensive, but I do the same for my legacies it’s just so bizarre to have a toilet just sitting there on the lot. Can’t wait to see how it turns out! I’d rather waste money for verisimilitude than save money just to keep the toilet through the generation.

    1. I’m sure the cheapo toilet I bought later will end up replaced with a nicer one by the time I’m done anyway. I’ve gotta find ways to spend that $30,000!

      1. I ended up buying the second cheapest toilet and hoping to never replace it – then I got a glitch in that corner of the lot and deleted the toilet. Now they have the cheapest one again. :/

  3. This truly is great!! I LOVE your up close shots of Brock…he’s an attractive Sim! ❤
    The rule on not deleting the Windenburg residents is there because when the expansion 1st came out there were issues when all those pre-created clubs were deleted etc. So it was better 2 play it safe than sry…especially if I wanted 2 implement a specific club SOMETHING in the future…I didn't want 2 burn any future bridges yanno?!
    Christina is now known as SweetOnSims on Twitter & YouTube…she was an original play tester 4 The Drifter Challenge, so when we released the blank world copy we inserted, myself, my husband, & my 2 play testers! Things r different now..but those 4 Sims were part of the original production!! =)

    1. The game wasn’t creating any townies because of the Windenburg residents and I didn’t want to match him up with one of them. It replaced all the clubs that came with the game with the hidden ones. I’ve only read the rules for the next house so I hadn’t thought about clubs being included. Oppsie! I think there’s a way to force the game to make the clubs again though. I’m really enjoying having the simselves in my game and plan to add more for the next generation!


      1. I know this reply is late..but I only JUST realized that u had replies…how terrible is that?! 0_0
        Don’t worry about the clubs…as u know those clubs will b replaced & new 1’s will b generated as time goes by. I wanted people playing Get Together asap, but that didn’t leave me w/an awful lot of play test time. In hind sight…but yanno…I’m gonna’ run w/it now! Muhahahah!! =P

        1. Oh that’s funny! Yea, I guess if you don’t have a WordPress blog you don’t see the little notification icon like we do!


            1. I have all the e-mail notifications turned off. They annoy the heck out of me! Since I have a WP blog I get the little icon in the top right corner when there’s a comment.
