The Novella Movin’ On Up Challenge #2 – Collect All The Things

In this latest episode of the Novella Movin’ On Up Challenge Arwen collects lots of items around the world to try and make some money. We have to furnish this grungy little apartment somehow!

Hope you all are enjoying this series! There is a new upload schedule in place for my Youtube channel as I have decided to go back to Twitch streaming (feel free to follow me there for story driven game playthroughs… I’m currently playing Mass Effect 3 and Legend of Zelda… I warn you though, my Twitch channel is NOT family friendly, like my Youtube channel is). Youtube vids will be uploaded as follows:

Yonder will be put on hiatus as I just don’t have time to record everything right now.

The Novella Movin’ On Up Challenge Returns as a Let’s Play!


Hey everyone! I mentioned last week that I would be moving the Novella Movin’ On Up series over to my Youtube channel as a Let’s Play. Today the first video in the series went up! In this episode you’ll be meeting Arwen Novella and checking out her first couple of days in this new series. The game hits me with a couple of bugs, but all in all it was a good start! Check out episode 1 below or on Youtube!

Decision Regarding Retreaux & Novella Stories!

Hi everyone! I know I said that I was going to wait until Friday to make a decision about this, but after looking at the poll results and doing some thinking about it on my own, I have made a decision about whether or not I am going to move the Retreaux and Novella stories over to my Youtube channel as Let’s Plays.

I was surprised at how many people actually wanted them to remain as written stories. Out of the 48 votes, 33% of you requested that they stay stories. While this isn’t the overwhelming majority, it was enough of you to make me think that maybe I shouldn’t move them both.

So instead I thought I’d come to a compromise and hopefully make everyone happy. The Retreaux Legacy will remain a written story. I prefer Sims 2 playthroughs as written stories. I love writing them and it kind of brings back some nostalgia for the old Sims 2 BBS days. So Retreaux will NOT be moving to Youtube.

However, I DO prefer doing Let’s Plays of Sims 4 playthroughs over writing them and to be honest, the Novella story was never very popular as a written series (at least compared to the Retreaux Legacy). The Movin’ On Up Challenge also seems to do better on Youtube than it does as a written story (at least in my opinion). So the Novella story will be discontinued here and restarted as a Let’s Play series on Youtube.

From now on, I think that is how I am going to work things. All Sims 2 challenges will be written stories here on the site, and all Sims 4 challenges will be Youtube Let’s Plays. I’m currently unsure whether or not I will do any Sims 3 challenge playthroughs. The game always tends to bug out for me.

I hope this works for all of you!

Brand New Toddler Random Trait Generator!

The Toddler Random Trait Generator has been rebuilt from the ground up thanks to the help of our awesome “Plugin Guy”. The issues that were occurring on the old generator should no longer be an issue as it’s a completely different plugin that works in a different way than the old one did.

You should no longer experience stuck traits. You might get repeats of the same trait (that is normal as there are only 8 traits and repeats will occur), but they shouldn’t be “stuck” anymore.

Updating All Trait Generators Today

Hey everyone! Just a quick post letting you know that rather than posting the Weekly Links List today, I will be working on updating and fixing (in the case of the Toddler Trait Generator) all of our Random Trait Generators today.

Our plugin creator fixed a bunch of stuff and also made a new Toddler Trait Generator for us (using a different plugin than before). Once I get everything set up, we SHOULD have no more issues with the Toddler Trait Generator continuing to get stuck (or at least I hope we won’t).

I will be making a second post later today once everyone is up and running. Fingers crossed the transition goes smoothly!
