Achieved This Round:

  • Green Thumb- Have a Sim achieve max level in gardening. Achieved by Megera Bubbettes.
  • Honorary Sim Guru- Play the Sims for 100 hours. Seriously think this was a glitch, but I’m not recording my hours so difficult to determine when this will be accomplished, so I’ll take it now.
  • Knock Knock- Visit 25 different lots. Achieved by Colleen while collecting.

Newcrest Achievements:

  1. All Nighter- Have a Sim stay awake for 24 hours. (GLITCHED! This did not happen.)
  2. Green Thumb- Have a Sim achieve max level in gardening. Achieved by Megera Bubbettes.
  3. Honorary Sim Guru- Play the Sims for 100 hours. Seriously think this was a glitch, but I’m not recording my hours so difficult to determine when this will be accomplished, so I’ll take it now.
  4. In the Game- Play 24 hours. I only achieved this one like last round…so yeah, sure on #3.
  5. Introvert- Have a Sim do nothing social for 24 hours. Well, 24 hours isn’t a long time to avoid people when you live alone! Bubbettes accomplished this one day when she didn’t go to the parks. She gardened, read a book on gardening, and watched TV.
  6. Just Getting Started- Play for 4 hours. Well, obviously!
  7. Knock Knock- Visit 25 different lots. Achieved by Colleen while collecting.
  8. Splice of Life- Unlock a new plant type through grafting. Apparently Megera achieved this. She did do some grafting but the result was a plant that grew both of the flowers, not a new kind, but I suppose that counts.
  9. Whimsical- Complete 100 whims across all Sims. Completed by everyone in Round 3.
  • Score: 9-1 (glitch) = 8 of 79 (~10%)

Round Three Achievements

We completed another achievement during Round Three.

Whimsical- Complete 100 whims across all Sims.

Sims have “whims” which are like the Sims 4 version of the “wants” from Sims 2 and the “wishes” from Sims 3. They are things the Sims desire to do at that moment. They are based on the Sims’ current emotional state, aspiration, skills, financial status, and a variety of other things. When you complete a whim, your Sim gets points they can use to buy life perks. Megera already has a perk- “Morning Person” where she gains skill faster in the morning. Since this was across all Sims, Megera, John and Amber helped to complete this achievement.

Newcrest: Collected Achievements

Achievements are tried to a single game in the Sims. So, when you start a fresh game none of the achievements stick. I was excited to have a blank achievement slate.

In my previous game, my “adoption” of some pre-existing Sims (such as Amanda & Martha) triggered the gain of certain achievements that I didn’t fully earn, but were assumed based on the Sim. For example, I unlocked a hidden achievement (Problem Child) that was for getting a Sim to max level of mischief as a teenager. Martha was at max mischief, but I didn’t bring her to that point (and she was an adult).

This time I hope to pay more attention to achievements and make note of ones that weren’t earned by the standards I require. And alas, I’ve already had to make a note!
