TS4- Drifter Challenge 002.7: Survivalist

House 002 Chapter 7

TS4_x64 2016-07-06 10-22-06-01

After the whole missing hermit debacle, I haven’t felt much like playing Drifter.  But I decided to look and see what the rules are for all the houses coming up and got really excited.  So I figured I’d better get my butt in gear and play! Of course, all I really had left to do other than decorating the house a bit was to finish Mindy’s aspiration.  Which meant grinding out one herbalism recipe after another.

Since they had plenty of money laying around and more coming in every day from the triplets jobs I decided to hire a gardener.

Andrew aged up to adult.  I should have waited until everyone was home so they could celebrate together but they all seem to scatter anyway.

TS4_x64 2016-07-06 10-30-43-49

Wade looks quite a bit like his dad.

Casey and Jaden hanging out chatting with Mindy while she makes her herbalism recipes.

She had to sleep in a tent so I just threw them on the lawn.  Ironically, everyone decided this was a great place to sleep and she kept having to kick sims out of a tent to go to sleep.

The dragon dragonfly gets a special place in the kitchen and Jaden checks it out.  Everyone loves looking at it.

TS4_x64 2016-07-06 11-04-21-79

Mindy started to get low on items to make her herbalism recipes with so I got her the book for level 8-9.  It was really boring.

TS4_x64 2016-07-06 11-06-32-78

When I saw Andrew outside scraping plates I realized I’d never gotten a garbage can for the house.

TS4_x64 2016-07-06 11-09-15-45

Just a pic of cutie Willow because I felt like she wasn’t getting any attention in this chapter.

TS4_x64 2016-07-06 11-41-10-21

The gardener was working out so well, I decided to hire a maid also.  The place was a disaster.

Wade and Willow hanging out in their parent’s bedroom.

So MC Command Center was going nuts marrying and making sims have babies left and right and yet Mindy’s brother Keith and his wife never popped up on the list.  So I went into manage worlds and played with genetics to give them some kids.  This is their son, Jake.

TS4_x64 2016-07-06 15-34-11-51

And this is Leslie.  I wanted them to have kids so that the house 001 would stay in the family instead of some random sims moving in there.

TS4_x64 2016-07-06 12-13-58-93

Mindy hit halfway through level 9 of herbalism and ran out of anything useful so a day of camping was in order.  I decided to just get them the biggest cabin… yet half of them didn’t sleep on beds they napped all over the place. Silly sims.

TS4_x64 2016-07-06 12-17-15-08

It only took a couple of more herbal remedies and she maxed the skill.  Next, she just had one more night in a tent.

TS4_x64 2016-07-06 12-19-14-77

It felt really weird having her just hanging out with the family instead of doing something.

TS4_x64 2016-07-06 12-22-30-05

She told a ghost story and for some reason, nobody sat down.

TS4_x64 2016-07-06 12-28-42-01

Yesss!  Now all I have to do is decorate the house.  And wait 8 days for Wade to age up to young adult.  I guess I had nothing to worry about with her surprise pregnancy at the start of the challenge after-all.

TS4_x64 2016-07-06 12-50-14-30

They fished as a group for a bit but then it popped up that it was Willow’s birthday and they all ran back to the cabin.

TS4_x64 2016-07-06 12-54-43-96

It’s so funny, both the kids aged to teen in Granite Falls.

TS4_x64 2016-07-06 13-02-45-21

She turned out to be quite the hottie.

TS4_x64 2016-07-06 13-03-37-54

Andrew is constantly taking selfies with them… but it’s a good way to compare their looks.  I think she looks more like Mindy.

TS4_x64 2016-07-06 13-55-43-60

No idea why the UI is up.  I only managed it a couple of times because his needs were usually garbage but I did have Wade help Mindy garden to get a head start on house 003.

TS4_x64 2016-07-06 14-53-32-35

Good thing you love the outdoors there buddy.

TS4_x64 2016-07-06 15-40-13-45

Willow caught on fire cooking and I realized that not only did I have no smoke alarm but also no sprinklers!  Luckily Mindy was close by.  Is it bad that I was relieved that it was Willow and not Wade?

TS4_x64 2016-07-06 15-42-37-05

She cooks herself another meal and sits to eat.  Then it was time for school so she went looking like that!

TS4_x64 2016-07-06 15-48-01-82

She doesn’t seem pleased when she gets home.  I laughed my butt off when Wade ran to the bathroom first and took a nice long bath.  Oh the irony.

TS4_x64 2016-07-06 16-21-41-26

Keith called and invited Mindy to house 001.  It was the day before Wade’s birthday and their house was complete so I figured it wouldn’t be cheating.  They hung out for awhile until one of the triplets passed out and I decided I’d better get them home.  Especially so that Wade could get his needs up some before his birthday.

TS4_x64 2016-07-06 16-29-33-69

He becomes a young adult and gains the geek trait.  I saved the game and an extra save in case he fails.  I’m so excited for house 003!

Chapter 003.1

Chapter notes:

The house is on the gallery as Rover Cabana by Rainydayz179.  You’ll need to add a smoke alarm and sprinklers if you get it.  *blush*  The house value is $46,572 and they have $23,527 to spare.  I know I could have built it bigger but I’m trying to stay with the actual size and price recommended for the houses.

About 5 days before Wade’s birthday after MC Command Center married a million more sims I realized that all the eligible sims that he could marry for house 003 were getting married off!  So I changed the settings so that there would be no homeless marriage or pregnancies.  But it didn’t work.  The day before his birthday a bunch more got married.  I was so ticked off I took the pregnancy file out of my mods altogether.  Most likely he’ll end up having to split up a marriage or something.  Grr.

  1. Oh no, that’s horrible that mc command is marrying everyone! I had that happen early on, I’m not sure I’ve tweaked my setting 100% yet, but it better and when I meet someone I might want I often will flag them never marry and no kids.

    Love reading opabout Mindy and gen two! You make it seem so easy – probably because the chapters just fly by!

    1. I got so frustrated with MC Command Center by halfway through house 005 that I took out the pregnancy pack. Yea, the chapters are really long for the Drifter story… usually around a week each.
