Random Trait Generators Updated for the Cats & Dogs Expansion!

Hi everyone! Just a quick post to let you know that the both of the Random Trait Generators (the all traits at once and the one trait at a time generators) have been updated to include the Aspiration and two new traits included in the Cats & Dogs expansion. As always, if you do not own this expansion simply re-roll (click the Roll Another Child button) to get traits that you do have the expansion for.

Also, in regards to changes to the Legacy Challenge rules for this new expansion… there likely will not be any major gameplay changes. We will not be updating the rules to include a pet Legacy as pets count as part of your 8 Sim limit which will make it very difficult to run your regular Sim Legacy. Legacy families are allowed to have pets, but just keep in mind that they count towards your Sim limit which might be a problem if you have a lot of Sims in a particular generation.

There MIGHT be a standalone pet related challenge coming in the future, but no changes will be made to any of our current challenges to add pets sub-rules.

Legacy Rules for the Sims 4 Cats & Dogs Will Be Delayed

Hey everyone! I just wanted to let you all know that updated Legacy Challenge Rules for the Sims 4 Cats & Dogs will likely be delayed for a bit. We are unable to purchase the game at the moment which means we won’t be able to do any sort of playtesting to see what we needed updated/add/change for the rules. We are hoping to be able to buy the game in a week or so, but until then, the rules will not be updated. Sorry for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience!

I also have a challenge in mind for the new expansion, but again, it will need to wait until I can actually obtain the expansion to playtest everything. Hopefully soon! I just wanted to be up front and transparent about why there is a delay with the rules.

The Novella Movin’ On Up Challenge #4 – The Quest to Become a Vampire

The 4th episode in my Movin’ On Up Challenge series on Youtube is now live! In this episode Arwen works on trying to become a vampire. After being bitten by Vlad in the previous episode, I decided that it might be fun to have a vampire in this challenge. I’m going to add an added bit of difficulty for myself and make it so that she doesn’t marry/move another Sim in or have kids. She will need to progress through the challenge with her income alone. Now that she is immortal, this is very doable.

Hope you all enjoy!

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 Story – Chapter 3

Hello everyone! Sorry for the lack of updates on this story last week. I didn’t have as much time as usual to get posts up as I had houseguests. I’ve missed writing about Arwen! As you can see by Arwen’s face above in our last chapter we had a few issues with apartment pests, breaking objects (due to goblins), and not checking in at the right kind of park. However we struggled through and hopefully this chapter will go a bit better for our fearless founder.
