My Obsession With Sims 4

Since I realized I wouldn't be able to play World of Warcraft in 2021 due to my inability to afford a new computer, I have been trying out other games to play and fill it's spot with in my heart. Don't worry, WoW will always be my favorite game. I decided to give Sims 4 another chance. So many packs had come out since I last tried, so why not try again? Am I ever glad I did! I have now learned how to build all sorts of building within the game, as well as how to play the game with actual sims. I thought i would document some important things (important things to me) I am doing in the Sims 4.

Not So Berry Challenge Take Two

I found this challenge after watching Sims4 videos on YouTube. It's a legacy challenge and you should follow the rules given. You can find more information about it at https://lilsimsie.tumblr.com/post/157671494755/not-so-berry-legacy-challenge

Note: My first go around failed because that save file refused to save anymore. After a few days of trying to fix the save file I started a new challenge on a brand new save file. I cheated in everything I had done in the first round as it was not my fault that I couldn't continue with it. Hence the name, Not So Berry Challenge Take Two. I'll be using the pictures I use for the generation pictures, since university graduation pictures aren't available out of the game.

Mint - The First Generation

This is my mint sim - Lilla Waterman. Her maiden name was O'Keefe. I went so far as to make her parents, download a mermaid off the gallery to marry, and make her husband (the mermaid) parents as well. Her husband is a goth mermaid by the user VampireLady.

Rose - The Second Generation

I've decided to try to take a picture of the current generation as a young adult (or adult) once their parent has entered the elder life stage. This is my rose sim - Ezra Waterman. He is also a mermaid as Lilla turned into a mermaid during her pregnancy.

Yellow - The Third Generation

As you can tell, I am trying to get the same pose for each picture. This is the yellow generation - Winston Waterman. She is an asexual, transgender mad scientist. She is a plain sim who decided to adopt her son as she just can't fathom woohooing with anyone. She is now on a mission to become immortal.

Gray - The Fourth Generation

This is Javier Waterman, adopted by his mom, the mad scientist. He's athletic and obsesses over anything sporty. His Mom became a werewolf, so he's pretty used to the aggression as well. He married a emo goth boy named Jonathan, who by only a Sim miracle could have his biological children. Before he got married he had many children who he raised, along with the heir of his family - Bora for the plum generation.

Plum - The Fifth Generation

Bora Waterman (married to be Baughman) is a doctor and she hates it. She spends all her time dancing & playing piano. She married her college sweetheart twice and had a beautiful delighter named Yaretzi. Once her daughter became a teen, she retired her doctor shingle and became an entertainer. Once her daughter moved out her & her husband became mermaids so they would have a legitimate reason to go to the beach all the time.

Orange - The Sixth Generation

Yaretzi Baughman is a Sim who believes she's evil and loves it. No one believes her, but they let her think it as it makes her so happy. It doesn't help she's a criminal and hardly brings in money. She married an alien who gave her twins, which she adores. Her daughters hardly take after her, but she is ok with that as they take after their other mother who she loves with all her heart. Why wouldn't she want her kids to be like the one she loves and be safe? She is evil, but not that evil.

Extra Pictures

I have decided to pick at least 1 picture from each generation that I feel embodies who they are as a Sim.

Trying To Become Immortal... AGAIN

My save file for my original Not So Berry Challenge was with an immortal werewolf. The mint generation sim was actually the werewolf's daughter. I had played that save file long enough that the were wolf was immortal, had 10+ children, done half the aspirations, and mastered most of her skills. She had almost every reward unlocked through the reward points. it was perfect set up for a not so berry challenge in my opinion. A millionaire immortal werewolf who could cook anything and it never spoiled. That would take so much stress off the game play. Sadly, it wasn't meant to be.

I decided to try to be immortal again - but through the Realm Of Magic pack. She will be an immortal spellcaster. After she has mastered all skills, completed all aspirations (even the hidden grilled cheese one - except the vampire and werewolf ones), gotten every degree she can, & mastered each career, she will then start work on the vampire and werewolf aspirations.

In essence, this sim I want to do EVERYTHING on. My current thought is that she will complete all she can as a regular sim/spellcaster, become a werewolf, then a vampire, then when all is done - go die in the sun. I will keep her as a young adult until she gets her degree and gets her job. She lives in Newcrest until then as there are so many treasures to dig up, plants to harvest, and metals to get after a thunderstorm there. It helps her maintain a decent life style where she hasn't had to go without food, toilet, bed, or shower at least. She can have children after she becomes immortal - not before.

Of course she is goth. What did you expect out of me?

Amaya Escamilla

This is my current attempt at becoming an immortal spellcaster. Things I am doing with her to help her move as fast as possible in this challenge I made:

  1. Live in Newcrest to collect all the frogs, dig all the treasures, harvest all the plants, and collect all the metals that are left after a thunderstorm. They respawn rather fast and are a good source of income at first.

  2. Plant one of everything I harvest so I can earn money. I use Ravasheen's No Fig Deal to help with gardening needs.

  3. Allow myself 5 solar panels and 1 dew collector for free. I plan on burning the money equivalent to the amount they cost once simoleans is no longer an issue.

  4. Getting an art degree to get good paying freelancer jobs. Easier to spend time in the magic realm to get immortal that way.

  5. Go to all the shops that sell death flowers and orchids. They will give me a decent amount of simoleans every day. Also find a dragon fruit plant and a snap dragon. Once they can be grafted together - do so as Cowberries go for a decent amount as well.

  6. Live in a base game home and remodel it. Usually base game items (inside and outside) cost more then better looking & cheaper items from other packs. I had gotten over 3000 simoleans for doing this. Most times you wont be charged to change the wallpaper/paint inside, the outside wall color, and the flooring.

  7. Set the lot traits to fast internet, great acoustics, & home studio. If you build your own house try to do tier 1 or 2 of the tiny home residence as it will help you learn skills faster.

Things She Has Already Done As Of September 3, 2022.

  1. Completed the Grilled Cheese & Musical Genius aspirations.

  2. Mastered guitar and singling skills.

  3. Aged to the adult life stage and been de-aged back to young adult via MCCC.

  4. Found the orchid and death flower for sale and planted them.

  5. Spliced together a dragon fruit & snapdragon to get cowberries.

  6. Published 3 books, and 4 songs for daily income.

  7. Found all plants needed for potion making and started a garden & orchard.

  8. Get the frugal, night owl, & morning sim rewards from the rewards store.

  9. Get to the Adept level of spellcasting. I learned repairo & scrubaroo spells right away luckily and decided to get the discharge perk right away so leveling that fast was easier then I remember it ever being.

Things She Has Done As OF September 30, 2022

  1. Become a master spellcaster and became immortal - she can't die from old age. Also learned the potion of youth (I think that is what its called) and takes it whenever her birthday is on the calendar.

  2. Adopted a kid & raised them to an adult.

  3. Moved to a bigger house in Glimmerbrook so she can have her own cauldron.

  4. Get married and widowed as she is going through a black widow phase. She now have over 100k simoleans because of this.

Adoption Only Not So Berry Challenge

I wanted to try the Not So berry Challenge with only 1 kid per generation and they had to be adopted. Since it'll pretty much be the same as the 1st go thru, I'm not going to do a lot about it except pictures & names.
