TS4- Drifter Challenge 004.1: That’s Science

House 004 Chapter 1

TS4_x64 2016-07-12 18-46-50-92

Brett Rover, heir of house 004 of the Drifter Challenge.  His aspiration is Nerd Brain but I change it often to get more points.  His traits are geek, cheerful and genius.  I didn’t go for loves the outdoors since he’ll be working indoors.  It’s just after 9am on Friday morning when he arrives.  His first action is to enter the science career.  He won’t start work until Monday so he’s got 3 days to try to make a little camp for himself.

He starts off fishing while he waits for the dig sites to spawn.  It doesn’t take long.  His first catch is a kitchen upgrade part.  Score!

He switches to the Curator aspiration and starts digging.

By the time he’s done with the dig sites the frog logs have spawned so he collects them too.

By then he’s really gotta pee!

He’s not so sure about this whole “bush toilet” thing.

While he fishes his mom walks by all sad.  Then I remember, Colton died that morning.

TS4_x64 2016-07-12 19-11-55-94

Oops.  Guess he was a bit tired.

TS4_x64 2016-07-12 19-14-12-70

Time for some park bench sleeping.  Cool paddleboat.

TS4_x64 2016-07-12 19-20-32-19

Poor guy wakes up miserable.  At least there’s food.

Another round of collecting scores him a shower and a cooler.

TS4_x64 2016-07-12 19-26-46-29

Starting a garden.

TS4_x64 2016-07-12 19-35-45-56

Yay he got a tent!

TS4_x64 2016-07-12 19-41-51-51

Despite the tent, his needs are still terrible.  He was hungry while out digging so I had him get some food and he passed out again.

TS4_x64 2016-07-12 19-48-26-81

Monday couldn’t come soon enough!  Luckily I got his needs up before he started work.  He looks weird without glasses.

TS4_x64 2016-07-12 19-50-09-93

The invention constructor is my favorite thing.  I didn’t want to take tons of pictures of him working… and realize now that I barely took any since he works so much.

TS4_x64 2016-07-12 20-59-38-11

Once he’s completed his quota of tasks for the day I send him out to dig.  Every day so far.  He got a promotion on his first and third days at work.

TS4_x64 2016-07-12 22-22-59-92

One night he was just about to eat when Wade called him for a party.  I figured why not?  He went there, ordered food and ate.  Everyone there was adults so he just left.  My plan to move in his cousin Patrick looks like it’s not going to work out because he’s never gotten a job since he aged to young adult.

TS4_x64 2016-07-12 22-39-20-84

Thank goodness he was upstairs getting a sandwich when this happened.  Ugh, I get tons of notifications of sims dying every day too.  I can’t move his urn so I guess it’s just stuck there.

TS4_x64 2016-07-12 22-53-36-23

When he got home from work his fun was really low so I decided to send him to the park to play chess.  When he got home I realized it was Friday night and that I’d already played 7 days!  The time just flies by with him working all of the time.

Chapter 004.2

Chapter notes:

There is no house value update because he has no house.  I haven’t changed anything since the picture of the lot with the tent other than a few things he got at work.  He’s got almost $10,000 though so I think I’ll buy the rocket and start the house over the weekend.  I already have it graphed out on paper.

I mentioned that I’d be switching aspirations to get more points.  He completed the first 2 parts of Angling Ace, the first 2 parts of Freelance Botanist and the first part of Curator.  For some reason, he’s not finding any fossils for the second part of that one.
