The Novella Movin’ On Up Story – Chapter 2

Ahhh here we go. Another day in the life of Arwen Novella, a single social media grunt hoping to move up the ranks of her job so that she can escape a filthy, grungy apartment and move into something more suitable to her tastes. In the previous chapter, I had Arwen write a children’s book, but forgot to have her self-publish it until the following day, so that is what she is doing in the screenshot above. It will be bringing in a whopping §3 per day. We all have to start somewhere, right?

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!

Weekly Links List – June 26, 2017

It occurred to me this morning that our Links & Affiliates pages were greatly out of date (like… 2 or 3 YEARS out of date). Rather than go through and update it, I thought it would be nice to bring back my weekly links posts where I link to other sites, Youtube channels, and Twitch channels that play our challenges. This was something that I always enjoyed doing as I love finding new people to watch/read their stories.

There is a good chance that I am going to miss someone as it’s difficult to track down everyone that does our challenges, so please let me know in the comments below if I’ve missed you or someone else and I will add you next week!

NOTE: These links are ONLY for website/channels that are actively playing our challenges. I can’t link all Simmers as the list would be a hundred miles long. Continue reading →

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!

Mystic’s Sims 4 House Builds – Trying Rory’s Build Challenge (House 02)

Hello everyone! I have another house build for you today and this time I decided to try Rory’s Build Challenge to add another layer of difficulty to my house building. I probably won’t do a house building challenge every week, but I’ve been wanting to try this one.

I am really happy with how the house came out. I was able to stay about §2,000 under budget and still managed to get the house to look as close to the build challenge house as possible. I did have to make a couple of changes to the rooms as one room was a laundry room. Since we don’t have laundry items in The Sims 4, I decided just to make the master bedroom a bit bigger. All-in-all I think it went really well and I definitely want to try more house build challenges in the future (if you have any suggestions for a house build challenge, let me know in the comments below). Now, onto the house tour!

Introducing Mystic’s Sims 4 House Builds & House Tours

Hi everyone! Lately I’ve been getting back into house building in The Sims 4. I have kind of burned out on actual family gameplay in the game, but have been really enjoying building houses. I’ve become inspired by house plans that I have come across online and also houses that I have driven by in real life. So I thought it might be fun to bring a new semi-regular series to the Sims Legacy Challenge website where I build houses and then posts photos here to give you guys a tour of what I’ve built. I had thought about doing Youtube videos for this, but I am just not that great at editing house build videos. They end up looking a bit choppy.

All house that I will be featuring in this series are completely Legacy & Wonder Child Legal as they do not contain any career rewards or custom content.

The first house that I have built is fairly simple and it was inspired by a ranch/cabin style floor plan that I found online. I really like how it came out! This house will be available for download on the gallery. Information on where to find it will be at the end of this post.
