Round Five: Acheivements

acheivements5

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%)

Community Sim #3: Eyecolor & Personality Continued

For Community Sim #3, we’ve decided: gender (male), skintone (see below), hair color, hair style, facial hair, his aspiration (deviance) and his lifetime goal (chief of mischief). So, this guy spends his days annoying people and playing pranks.

We’ve determined that CS3 wears mostly athletic clothes or sweaters and pants, and his clothes have a hint of weirdness.

Marina Day 16

This is part of my “Community Sims” series where readers of this blog help create the Sims I use. Check out the rest of the posts here.  And please, feel free to vote in the most current poll to help me design the next community sim (#3)!

So far, you have decided that Marina should pursue the maximum level of gardening achievement and become friends with Travis and Summer. You had her wait on a relationship with Travis. She is allowed to pursue three of her own whims per day, regardless as to whether or not that match our goals for her. She spends time cooking one decent meal a day, but the rest she just grabs something quick like yogurt or cereal.  She is currently saving up to purchase a computer. You recently decided she should give it a try with Travis. Thanks to a weird flux in the space time continuum (a repercussion of the Bachelor challenge), Travis has aged significantly. You have decided Marina should not pursue a relationship with anyone for the time being.

Promotion

Today had a little bit of excitement! It started off normal- woke up, got dressed, had a quick breakfast, went to work, worked all day, but just as I was about to leave, my boss called me into her office to give me a promotion! I am now a Freelance Article Writer!

Other than the promotion, though, I don’t have much to tell.

03-22-15_2-22 PM

I made a Caprese salad for dinner.

03-22-15_2-23 PM

Watched some TV while I ate.

03-22-15_2-23 PM-2

By the time I was done with dinner it was dark, so I stayed inside until bed.

03-22-15_2-20 PM

And read a book.

Community Sim #3: Personality & Eye Color

Poor CS #3! Totally neglected. Half created. I stopped playing my other Sims temporarily when I started the Bachelor Challenge. And completely forgot that we could have continued working on CS #3!

For Community Sim #3, we’ve decided: gender (male), skintone (see below), hair color, hair style, facial hair, his aspiration (deviance) and his lifetime goal (chief of mischief). So, this guy spends his days annoying people and playing pranks.

First- would you PLEASE name him? Just start throwing out male names in the comments section.

Next up…eyes. We need to redo this poll since something (a free content patch maybe?) cause there to be new eye colors in the game.

Let’s bring a bit more life to this guy. What is CS#3 like?

What is his clothing style?

Today was just another average day.

I went to make breakfast when I realized both the fridge and oven were broken. Sigh. I don’t have the time or skill to repair them (and I certainly don’t want to try that alone) so I paid to replace both of them. Good thing I had money saved up for that computer.

02-11-15_7-25 PM-2

My table was too messy, so I ate at my future computer desk. I then went to work.

02-11-15_7-27 PM

My job performance was quite excellent today. I think I am going to get a promotion soon. Another blogger accused me of plagiarism. I chose to ignore them- “don’t feed the trolls” sort of thing and that seemed to work out well.

02-11-15_7-28 PM-2

When I got home, I took care of all my plants.

02-11-15_7-29 PM

And then jumped in the pool for a quick swim before bed.

Day 15

Hey! I have today off! That was totally unexpected.

02-11-15_7-40 PM-2

After showering and getting dressed, I cleaned up the house a bit.

02-11-15_7-42 PM

Then I tried making my first “gourmet” recipe- a fruit and yogurt parfait. Delicious!

02-11-15_7-45 PM

I did some gardening for a while.

02-11-15_7-46 PM

But my plants were still pretty good from yesterday, and I was feeling sad and lonely. I called the sadness hotline, they always cheer me up.

02-11-15_7-48 PM

In the late afternoon, Summer came over. I almost didn’t recognize her. She transitioned from adult to elder! I didn’t realize she was in the adult stage! I swear she was younger. Maybe I am aging slower than everyone else?! This means Travis is older now too. I better start spending more time with them. Maybe I work too much. I think this has made my loneliness even worse.

Community Sim #3: Facial Hair & Eye Color

For Community Sim #3, we’ve decided: gender (male), skintone (see below), his aspiration (deviance) and his lifetime goal (chief of mischief). So, this guy spends his days annoying people and playing pranks.

We’ve finally decided on the hair:

We’ve also decided that he will be a childish and outgoing goofball.

Marina: Day 13

This is part of my “Community Sims” series where readers of this blog help create the Sims I use. Check out the rest of the posts here.  And please, feel free to vote in the most current poll to help me design the next community sim (#3, we are working on his hair, see below)!

So far, you have decided that Marina should pursue the maximum level of gardening achievement and become friends with Travis and Summer. You also decided she should not pursue a relationship with Travis just yet. She is allowed to pursue three of her own whims per day, regardless as to whether or not that match our goals for her. She spends time cooking one decent meal a day, but the rest she just grabs something quick like yogurt or cereal.  She is currently saving up to purchase a computer. You decided that on this day off, she should work on her career and hang out with Travis.

Another day off! How exciting! I woke up early this morning- well, for me anyway! I finished reading the book I was working on, and then headed to the library to practice my writing skills!

02-06-15_9-31 AM

I spent most of my day at library working on my writing and chatting with the people near me. Ronnie and I chatted for while about all sorts of things.

02-06-15_9-32 AM-2 02-06-15_9-32 AM-3

And I also chatted with a couple of women, they didn’t stay long so I don’t remember their names. Oops! I feel bad, they seemed nice!

02-06-15_9-34 AM

After the library, I went back home to grab a quick bite and freshen up. Then I went next store to see if Travis was home.

02-06-15_9-42 AM

 

He was! As usually, we spent the entire evening chatting.

02-06-15_9-43 AM  02-06-15_9-43 AM-3 02-06-15_9-44 AM 02-06-15_9-44 AM-2

 

We told jokes, talked about the neighborhood, and chatted about our interests.

02-06-15_9-45 AM

And guess what?! We decided, officially, that we are best friends! We hugged on it!

02-06-15_9-45 AM-3

Then we took a photo together.

 

02-06-15_9-46 AM

Chatted some more.

02-06-15_9-46 AM-3

 

 

And finally when it was time to leave, another hug!
