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

 

Wonderland Legacy – The Circles of Life 2.3

08-15-15_5-50 PM

Life in the Hollister household, mimicked life elsewhere in Willow Creek. The neighborhood had grown in size. New faces were renting out houses formerly owned by Wonderchild parents. Some of the couples participating in the program had dropped out a few years in. The  people in the lab coats hardly ever stopped by anymore.

Tamar was able to sell an app and buy the house they rented from SimsCorp. The renovations took a few years but when they were done it 08-15-15_6-44 PM-9looked like a gorgeous 3 bedroom house had always been there.

The children also were growing, Mason had taken an interest in sports. Spending every waking moment at the gym or jogging. He didn’t have to work. Instead his focus was grades and being a teenager.

Tamara found the creative bug her mother had. She  as often found locked in her room coloring or 08-15-15_6-44 PM-2practicing the violin. Her stuffed animals would have tea parties with her and she would spend hours talking to her mother in the garden.

Tamar had retired after he sold the app and enjoyed the time he had to be home with his children. There is something sobering about knowing when your time is up. Each year his children grew marked another year of borrowed time.

08-15-15_5-51 PM-3It happened suddenly, late in the night without a sound. Tamar passed on leaving his wife of 18 years a widower raising a growing boy and an impressionable young woman. It left her devastated. Each of the Hollister clan grieved differently. Mason shed almost no tears, his younger sister, completely heartbroken.

With Tamar no longer in the home, 08-15-15_5-51 PM-2Mason had to take on responsibilities as man of the house. Tamara would continue to have a normal childhood. Naomi slipped into a deep depression, she moped around the house for days. She never fully recovered from his passing. As old age set in, the loss of her one true love had taken its toll on her.

Mason found he’d have to care for young Tamara. Until Naomi dealt with her grief the two were on their own.

Wonderland Legacy – Births and Birthdays 2.2

05-26-15_9-55 PMNaomi was in her third trimester. Months ago when she and Tamar were celebrating their new beginnings they were creating a new life. The fertility treatments provided by SimsCorp at the beginning of the Wonderchild trials was so potent that several years later and at 45 no less she was carrying her second child.

It was to be a girl. Mason was a rambunctious tyke climbing on things and swinging from high places, Naomi hoped the little girl would be interested in quiet activities like coloring and reading. It was Tamar’s birthday he would be turning 50.

The couple would look back on the day fondly, Naomi worked quietly in the kitchen. She’d been stirring cake batter when she felt the familiar tug, the rush of liquid seeped through her linen pants. 05-26-15_10-00 PM-2This time they’d been prepared. Tamar was in the car before she even felt her second contraction.

Tamara Hollister was born on her father’s birthday. As he aged into an elder, she started her life as the youngest child and the newest edition of their little clan.

Naomi and Tamar were pleased with themselves. They’d managed to have two lovely children. The scientist at SimsCorp were happy to hear of a second child so long as Mason remained the primary focus. He’d be a teenager soon, the formidable years were approaching.

Wonderland Legacy – Mason the Early Years 2.1

05-23-15_11-06 AM-2

 

Mason’s first few years were a breeze. Naomi’s decision to stay home allowed her to dote on the child. When he was sleeping she would garden and work on a few recipes. She’d started to take an interest 05-17-15_6-25 PM-3in cooking, more than she had before. She had agreed to stay home with Mason but maybe she’d find a career in cooking once he started school.

Tamar had loss interest in his tech career. There were only so many video games you could play before your eyes bled. He found peace  in his home and his son. The two bonded before Mason was even old enough to speak.

The years had flown by and soon it was Mason’s birthday. Giving birth to the wonderchild was one thing, but raising him had been another. Each birthday needed to be special.05-23-15_10-44 AM He was officially of school age and would be leaving the house the following Monday to attend Willow Creek Elementary.

Naomi felt a strange tug in her chest. She’d been hosuebound for the past few years, caring for Mason assuring he was well prepared for success. She was excited for the possibilities of the future. She would start searching for cooking jobs, something part time.

05-23-15_10-23 AMTamar’s response to Naomi working was a mixture of excitement and praise. He was happy she’d found something else to look forward to since Mason would be leaving school. He too was having second thoughts about his job, he wanted to write. It seemed easy enough and he could do it from home.

They had an agreement. Naomi would start her job search on Monday after Mason left for school and Tamar who had secretly quit his Tech job last week, would start his new job at Walrus books later that week. They threw Mason a birthday party!

Wonderland Legacy – Fertility Trials and a Wonder Child is Born 1.3

05-17-15_1-33 PMTwo months into the experiment, newlyweds Tamar and Naomi Hollister are woo-hooing as scheduled. They’d been locked in the bedroom more in the past two months than either had in their entire lives. If they were successful a new life would begin.

All the effort paid off and Naomi happily informed Tamar that she was finally pregnant. They had 05-17-15_1-56 PMsucceeded in the first part of the project. Tamar feeling nervous thought he’d read up on a few baby books. Naomi decided to relax and take things easy. Neighbor Vivian from across the street would come and sit with her some days, just to keep her company.

Naomi was beginning to will the baby out of her. With each days passing her body grew more swollen and more foreign. Until one bright morning, Naomi felt a tug and some moisture on her sheets.

Tamar had worked late and was resting, the immediate series of jabs to her spinal cord sent Naomi flying from the bed. 05-17-15_2-42 PMIt was as if her body was being torn in two. She screamed for Tamar who’d proven he could sleep through the apocalypse. He remained unmoved. 05-17-15_5-28 PM-2

Tamar awoke to Naomi shrieking in pain, he immediately jumped from the bed threw on his clothing and rushed to the hospital. His nerves were shot, her screams of agony terrified him. What had they truly done?

Naomi begged Tamar to stay for the delivery, he objected but couldn’t help but cave. His pregnant wife of 2 months was giving birth to their first child. The reason for them being together. The wonder child. The process in which a child is delivered was more complex then he had originally imagined. 05-17-15_5-55 PM The books he read mentioned nothing about strapping the woman in an iron lung and whipping her in the side with a giant whisk. The canola oil, the machine squirted every few moments, was allegedly to assist in lubricating the birth canal.

05-17-15_6-01 PM-2

After several long hours, mostly spent crammed in a corner terrified of seeing something scarring. Tamar inched closer to meet his son, Mason. Naomi decided it would be fitting that the newest Hollister have a piece of her as well.  05-17-15_6-01 PM-5They’d successfully brought a wonder child into the world.  Now all they had to do was raise him!

Wonderland Legacy – Love At First Sight 1.2

05-05-15_11-17 PMNaomi and Tamar bonded over their loneliness, he too had wanted a family for a long time. He was in search of true love, though in Willow Creek, his home time the sim with money was the sim to be wed. He was a comedian, who spent his down time reading and taking things apart.

Naomi laughed at his candor, she felt like she could really be herself with him.

The weeks went by and Naomi found herself falling for Tamar. One evening out on the town the two shared their first kiss. It’d had been a month since they’d moved in. They had all the time in 05-05-15_11-14 PMthe world to know each other better after the treatments started.

Tamara and Naomi decided to take on traditional roles. If they were lucky enough to succeed and since one parent had to stay home, Naomi would be homemaker and Tamar would find a job.  His career as a comedian wasn’t enough to put food in their mouths and the $500 monthly stipends for participating in the program were just enough to pay their bills.

Naomi took to her role as homemaker like a pro. All she’d ever dreamed of was being a wife and a mother, traits her earlier lovers found overwhelming, but Tamar loved the idea of coming home to someone eager to see him.

05-06-15_9-57 PM-2She spent her free time in the garden and came to really enjoy the time spent caring for her flowers.

Tamar decided he would take his love of video games to the next level and become a Tech Guru. At this he excelled, getting a promotion his first few days on the job, the added money was more than he imagined and he decided the best way to spend it would be on an engagement ring!05-17-15_1-20 PM

Newly engaged and with less than a week before the fertility trials. Naomi and Tamar tied the knot alone in the kitchen of the Lab House. Marriage was not mandatory for the experiments to continue but the powers that be were pleased, the two had truly committed to the program.

With that last formality out-of-the-way, they were ready to try for the wonder baby.
