The Sims 4 is Coming to Consoles This November!

EA and The Sims announced today that The Sims 4 will be coming to the Playstation 4 and Xbox One consoles on November 17, 2017!

In the announcement, The Sims stated: “Since our initial launch on PC, we have made several updates to the base game, ranging from the addition of Ghosts, Pools, New Careers, to the world of Newcrest, to give your Sims space to continue to grow; overhauled the Create a Sim tool, to provide expanded gender customization options; and most recently, added Toddlers as a new playable life state! All of these great updates will be available to players at launch when you play The Sims 4 on console.”

So it sounds like all of the free updates that we have received to the game since the PC launch in 2014 will be made available to console players from the start. If you are a console gamer and want to play the Sims, now is your chance!

Introducing the Alien Adoption Challenge!

Hello everyone! Pinstar has an all-new Parenthood-centric challenge for you guys to play! The Alien Adoption Challenge! Want to really put your Sim’s parenting skills to the test? This challenge is for you!

You will be starting with an Alien Toddler and will be unable to DIRECTLY control that Alien Sim until they reach Young Adulthood. The only way you can teach them things and meet their needs is by using their parent.

This challenge will require a couple of different packs (not just Parenthood) to work properly. You will need Parenthood, Get to Work, and City Living.

Want to see how to get started with the challenge? Check out Pinstar’s introduction video!

In other news, both the Legacy Challenge and the Wonder Child Challenge have had some minor updates with the release of Parenthood. Changes for the Legacy Rules can be found under the Gameplay and Scoring section! As always, these rule updates are optional and you will not need the pack to continue playing the challenges as you normally would.

Legacy Challenge Updates & A New Challenge Coming Soon!

Hi everyone! I just wanted to give you a quick update in regards to what is happening with the Legacy Challenge with the new Parenthood game pack. We will be adding some optional updates to the channel (if you don’t own the pack, you obviously will not need to do anything different). We are still playtesting quite a bit, but hopefully will have the updates soon!

Pinstar also has a NEW challenge for the Parenthood pack in the works. Rules will be posted once he has finished playtesting everything. This challenge will be specific to the Parenthood pack and should be a nice, shorter challenge for those of you that don’t have the time to do a long, Legacy challenge 🙂

Hope you all are having a great week!

Wonder Child and Legacy Challenge Rules Updated for Toddlers & Vampires!

Hey everyone! Just a quick post to let you know that both the Legacy Challenge and the Wonder Child Challenge rules have been updated for Toddlers and vampires!

The Legacy Challenge hasn’t really changed much. You are welcome to make a vampire founder/heirs. Just bear in mind that since they are immortal you will need to figure out what to do with the older generations as the challenge progresses. Toddlers haven’t really changed anything in this challenge aside from adding an additional life stage to play.

As far as the Wonder Child is concerned toddlers added a bunch of new points and bonuses to earn so make sure you read over the rules carefully! You will NOT be able to use vampires in this challenge as that will eliminate the “time crunch” aspect of it.

The Random Trait Generator has been updated to include the new vampire aspirations (though if you decide you don’t want a vampire in your family or you don’t own the pack, you can simply re-roll). Toddlers also have their own Trait Generator for you to use as you need it!

As always, let us know if you have any questions!

The Sims 4 Vampires – Beginning a Vampire Legacy

Hey everyone! We were lucky enough to get an early access/review copy of the upcoming Sims 4 Vampires Pack from EA. I decided that rather than going through all of CAS and build/buy mode (which I know A LOT of other Youtubers can do much better than me) that I would start off a new Legacy Challenge with a Vampire Founder for an all-vampire Legacy Challenge.

Updating the Legacy & Wonder Child Challenge to Include Toddlers

 

So many people were stunned yesterday to see that Toddlers were added to The Sims 4 in a FREE update to the game. Us included!
We’ve already gotten several questions regarding how toddlers will fit in to the Legacy Challenge and Wonder Child Challenge as well as whether or not we are going to update the Random Trait Generator. This update took us as much by surprise as it did all of you, so we were not able to get the Random Trait Generator updated sooner. We also are dealing with some real life stuff (a family member has been dealing with some health issues) so that needed to take priority.
