Sims 4 Real Housewives of NewCrest!

Sims 4 logo 1

OMG Noel where have you been hiding?

Me: I haven’t been hiding, I’ve been playing Sims 4.

Ladies and Gents, thank you so patiently for bearing with me, I promised reviews, book hauls and more… and then I decided that Grad school may be a good idea; then winter came. I DESPISE winter!

As soon as temperatures drop below the comfortable sweater weather of 75 degrees, yours truly starts storing stuff for winter and deciding on which flannel looks best with a blue wig! In one last attempt at being productive, I decided the combined passion of the Sims 4 plus writing could keep me motivated enough to keep the blog going and excuse the copious amounts of time i’d be spending on this video game.

Along Came Reality TV…

Quick Tidbit: Reality TV is my guilty pleasure and I binge-watch it hardcore.

After catching up on my faves, I discovered this post by IIOMQILOVESIMS a profile on the Sims 4 community forum, they found it from somewhere else. You can check out the original post here.  I’ve never been able to keep up with a Sims 4 challenge. While playing I kept forgetting to gets pics and video and when I do remember I forget to post. It gets a bit daunting.  Here’s one more shot, and you all can keep me honest as I try my hand at…

 

The Real Housewives of Newcrest Challenge!!!

This challenge aims to get all your housewives to know each other, maintain a high relationship, while creating drama!

Rules of Game Play!

Create – A – Sim:

Each household has to be an original creation by you. The specifics are for you to choose from but they must all be at least YA or above.  You can make 5-8 women for this challenge but group only allow up to 8 members. So only those in the group are a part of your “cast”.

Unlike reality TV, each housewife has to have a husband, his specifics also up to you. However, the husbands have to be a bit muscular. (Not sure why but let’s go with it.) They can be really muscular or a little muscular.

Finally, your housewives should have children! They can have as many children as you want, if you think you can handle it. Create their children the old fashioned way with “Try For Baby” or by using the “Play With Genetics” tab in CAS. They can have whatever aspirations and traits you want.

Make sure the housewives and their families are in different households.

HOUSES:

If you watch “The Real Housewives of….” Anything you’ll be quite familiar with the most extravagant houses known to man. For this challenge give us the most extravagant houses known to Newcrest, (Shouldn’t be hard it’s completely blank)  They MUST live in Newcrest. Put your housewives in the larger lots. You can build your own house or get one from the gallery.

*Don’t forget to make your sims super rich! #Motherlode

SETTING UP THE TOWN:

Using the gallery or your own building skills, create a few “landmarks”, for example, a lounge, club, pool etc. Build a “Housewives Club” with any lot type you want, like a lounge, club, bar etc. Make as many social places as you want to fill up your town. The housewives can travel the other towns freely, but Make sure all your housewives are in Newcrest, not the other towns that are in your game.

GAMEPLAY:

  1. Choose a housewife that you want be your head housewife. Choose wisely, as this is your choice for the whole gameplay. This housewife has to be known to the other housewives in your game.
  2. To maintain the house they can do the housework themselves,  with the help of their kids and spouse or get a maid to do it.
  3. Everyday your housewife MUST do some sort of physical activity such as the gym, jog or running etc. This can keep your housewife fit and make sure they do not become overweight.
  4. Your housewife can enjoy the luxuries of being a housewife by relaxing by the pool, going to the shops and other things.
  5. Housewives children can date the other housewives children.
  6. Housewives must follow the weekly “Schedule” of activities.

HOUSEWIFE SCHEDULE:

Monday

Housewife Meeting: On Mondays we brunch! Have this  hangout at any public lot that serves food. Get your housewives to sit down, eat, and create some drama! Don’t forget to catch it on camera and hit record.

Tuesday

Housewife meeting: Today’s meeting is at a bar or lounge. Again get them sucy and see what happens.

Wednesday

Housewife Club Day: Today’s meeting is at the “Housewives Club”. Make sure your housewives club has a dining table, bar, kitchen (make sure your housewives don’t manage to get in the kitchen) and a lounge. Like the other days, sit, eat and socialize!

Thursday

Gym Day: This is the final housewife meeting for the week. Today, have your ladies hit the gym, they can use the work out machines, do yoga or hit the sauna but they must work out Be sure they socialize and see what happens.

Friday

Dinner Party: Each Friday a new housewife hosts a dinner party. Everyone is invited, including the housewives, husbands and children. This night will cause the most drama. Like, housewives are sleeping with each others husbands, kids are trashing the house and the housewives.. are just being housewives. Each sim week, a different housewife has to host the dinner party.This social event also has the opportunity for the housewives to meet other housewives husbands, children and gossip.

Saturday

“Work” Day: Today, your housewives do some chores, such as shopping, cleaning the house etc. I gave each of my housewives a hobby they could make money at from home, writing, baking, programming, painting crafting. Today have your sims work on that. The kids and hubby will have to “fend for themselves” let the kids enjoy the weekend with friends or by exploring their surroundings.

Sunday

Bonding Day: On this last day of the week, the housewives, husbands and children are spending some time today. There will be no external housewife interaction, however, if they call, decline the call.  Like a real family take them out as a group. In the night, gather all your family together to socialize, like talking watching a movie together or playing a board game.

All the days should be repeated, but if you would like to make some tweaks, go ahead.

Generations optional

 

To Be Continued: Night of the Animals

You ever start a book and think to yourself, “I’m never gonna make it to the end of this?” 

Usually it comes from a lack of interest in the story, or eagerness to start something newer. Occasionally I find myself wondering why I even started the book in the first place. 

This time around I’ll chalk it up to a wandering eye. I picked up, Bill Broun’s “Night of the Animals” shortly after finishing “A Madness So Discreet” by Mindy McGinnis. I was craving another stand alone since I’ve picked up several series these past 2 months that I’m not sure I want to start in 2017. 

I have yet to make it past chapter One, of this book.

Perhaps it’s the concept. Set in futuristic London; our main character Cuthbert Handley,  (I roll eyes at his name each time) must use his possibly made up special gifts of speaking to the animals, to release/rescue them before a suicide cult determined to kill all animal life gets to them.

👀🤔😞

It could also be that I’ve been buying soooo many fantasy books including, “Hart’s Hope” by Orson Scott Card, lately that I’m distracted from the story because I really wanna crack the spines of the new books.

Either way, I’ll be postponing my exploration into “Night of the Animals” for another time. In the interim I have to decide between, “Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister” by Gregory Maguire or the aforementioned “Hart’s Hope”

What are you currently reading?

I am working on Night of the Ani9mals by Bill Brown. Set in futuristic London, Cuthbert Handley, believes he is gifted with the ability to speak to animals. He’s tasked with freeing them on the same night a terrorist group decides to kill them all. I haven’t gotten too far into the story yet, but I’m intrigued.  

Still prepping for grad school, I’m also continuing Orson Scott Card’s How to Write: Science Fiction & Fantasy a light read with lots of information for aspiring writers. This book is only one in a series of genre reference books published by Writers Digest.

What did you recently finish reading?

I finished reading A Madness So Discreet by Mindy McMcGinnisI borrowed this book back in February according to my good reads list and have onky just gotten arouns to reading it. The book was so amazing, that i bought my owm copy from thriftbooks.com! The novels tells a story of escape and triumph fro Grace Mae, sexually assaulted by her father she is sent to a poorly run insane asylum when it’s discovered that she’s pregnant. Grace has no plans of returning to her life of torment. It’s a psychological rollercoaster that forces the reader to consider what it means to be sane. Feel free to check out the review for that here.

I am undecided, I may have too many options now if there is such a thing! If I start a new series I may be aiming for The Lunar Chronicles by Marisa Meyer however, if not Confessions of an

#NewBook Book Tag

Hey all,

I’ve been prepping for grad school, so my writing time has been limited to getting my portfolio together. Almost done though! 😇
I thought I’d attempt an update. I finished A Madness So Discreet a few days ago and was in the mood for another stand alone novel. Then I remembered that my sissy, bought me such a book for my bday!!! 

Night of the Animals by Bill Brown, is looking like a humorous story, our main character believes he can speak to the animals and uses this gift to interrogate them while also trying to set them free.

In oil painting across a blackened sky freckled with dimly lit stars, a young man wearing what appears to be an old school white nightgown is sitting on top of a bear. Thus covering all facets of the title, with the bear being the animal and the sky clearly night.

I’m not familiar with Bill Brown as an author but if I like this one perhaps he’ll have a new fan. 

 

I’m also still working my way through How to Write Science Fiction & Fantasy by Orson Scott Card. Treating this as a textbook for writing, I’ve been able to learn a bit more about crafting a story.
