Mystic’s Sims 4 House Builds – Ashaife’s Build Challenge for July 2017

That’s right, I have another build challenge today! This time it’s Ashaife’s Build Challenge for July 2017! What can I say? I’m kind of addicted to them and I’ve learned a lot about building by doing these! I had a great time with this one, though I did suffer a bit from “decorator’s block” after finishing the exterior. So it took me a little longer to decorate this house than it normally does. That being said, I think it came out great and I’m really pleased with the final results! Continue reading →

The Novella Movin’ On Up Story – Chapter 1

Hello everyone! Last week I introduced you to my new Movin’ On Up Challenge founder, Arwen Novella. This week will be taking our first look into her daily life at 1313 21 Chic Street where she will be living for at least the next Sim week or so.

A couple of things that I forgot to mention before we get started. The lot traits for her first apartment (two of which I chose) are Needs TLC (which comes standard with this apartment), Gremlins, and Filthy. So basically. This apartment is awful. I wasn’t about to make the challenge easier for myself by giving it two good lot traits. This isn’t SUPPOSED to be a nice apartment. So she’s going to be living in squalor for a while. Poor Arwen. Let’s see how she does!

The Novella Movin’ On Up Story – Introduction

Uh oh. This chalk outline of a Sim body can only mean one thing. I’m starting a Movin’ On Up Challenge story! I started this challenge about 8 or 9 months ago, but never got around to finishing it. I had started a Let’s Play on my Youtube channel, but as most of you know, I have decided to focus more on this website than I have been on Youtube or Twitch (mostly thanks to ISP data issues). So I thought it would be a great idea to get a story started. Y’know since I made this challenge and all. And it’s high time I actually FINISH a challenge gosh darnit. Continue reading →

Mystic’s Sims 4 House Builds – Modern & Sleek

Lately I’ve been watching a lot of HGTV reruns on Hulu while I work on my crochet projects. You can get a lot of inspiration for house builds while watching shows like House Hunters or Property Brothers. Today’s house build, which I have called Modern & Sleek, is inspired in part by a house that I saw on House Hunters (the interior color scheme and style) and also by a floor plan that I saw on houseplans.com. I hope you enjoy this tour! Continue reading →

Mystic’s Sims 4 House Builds – Rory’s Build Challenge for July 2017

Hello everyone! Rory has done it yet again with another great monthly build challenge! I really enjoyed building this one. It felt like a super cozy vacation home that your Sims could go to when they want to get away from the hustle and bustle of their usual lives. I’d certainly love to stay here for a couple of weeks and relax in front of that fire pit and read a book. That sounds heavenly.

Below is a tour of this cozy and charming beach house. Continue reading →

Eat Like a Sim – Fruits of the Forest Ice Cream (Sims 4)

It’s been a really hot and humid summer here so I thought my first recipe back with Eat Like a Sim should be something cold that can be enjoyed on a hot day. The Ice Cream Maker introduced with the Cool Kitchen Stuff pack offered up several options! I was intrigued by the flavor called “Fruits of the Forest” and I envisioned a mixed berry ice cream (since berries are commonly found in forests). The Sims made version shows what looks like vanilla ice cream with swirls of pink and purple. I couldn’t QUITE replicate the exact look, but I think it tastes great! Continue reading →

Modern & Green Tiny House Tour

Hello everyone! I’ve been in a building mood in the Sims 4 lately. It’s definitely become one of my favorite aspects of the game given how user-friendly it is to build. I’ve also been fascinated by tiny houses and thought it would be fun to build one. I was inspired by a house that I found on houseplans.com and added my own spin to it.

I will say, this house is TINY. There is room for 1 MAYBE 2 Sims at most. However, it is still reasonably affordable at around §31,000 (so not a starter house, but close!). Now, onto the tour!

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.
