Happy New Year!

Welcome, 2023. I kind of lost touch with this blog in 2022 but since you & I are newly acquainted, let’s start fresh.

The Drifter Challenge: House 3 (status: on hiatus) – it’s been on hiatus for some time now, partly because I went through a spell where I was bored with Sims and partly because of gardening issues (fully grown plants revert back to newly planted & if not caught in time, your sim will not only lose the current harvest but also days worth of tending the garden). And for those who play/have played this House, you know that it is mainly all about the garden! Quite frustrating to say the least.

The gardening issue still isn’t resolved. {sigh} I now realize it will never get resolved, no matter how many bug patches and updates this game has. I can either 1) Not play the game … 2) Play & not bother with Gardening … 3) Play & not let Gardening bother me. I pick option 3 for now. To Garden or Not, that IS the question. One that depends on what I choose to play because some sims will want to learn gardening and others won’t. There. Problem “solved”. Sort of.

By the banner, it’s easy to see what challenge has caught my eye. I started playing it in late December after seeing how much fun illusie (sim: Liberty Rhodes) and BreeMiles (sim: Amber Bigelow) were/are having! The rules are fairly easy to understand and the goals of each round appealed to me. I adore the sim I created to play this and have already played half of the 1st season (season length: 28 days) before the New Year arrived … only stopping because I’m making a gift for a Buddy (part of a gift exchange in my Discord group) and gifting begins on January 15th. Since I’m hosting this shindig, my being late with the gift is NOT acceptable.

Anywho … until I can get back to playing this adventure, there are rules and 14 days worth of story to share with y’all.

Enjoy, xo Addy

If you wish to skip the rules and jump right into the story, ROUND 1: Day 1 is now available!

  1. I didn’t know about the gardening issue, which proves there are always new things to learn about this game, good and bad. I tend to stay away from that ‘chore” in game, for both Sims 3 and 4. But that is good information to know. My best friend mostly plays the gardening in game. I wonder if she knows. Anyways I will have to look up this new challenge you are playing to see what it’s all about.

    1. I mostly learn new Sim things via my friends or somehow stumbling across it myself. Oops! Now isn’t that interesting? sort-of-thing. I have a tendency to garden because of trying to get more bang from simoleons … earn money & feed family from a small plot, sure thing! Hope her game is free from this bother. Yes, please do peruse the challenge! Maybe it will spark your imagination in ways it has mine but if not, that’s okay too – you’ll just live it vicariously through my Harlem. hee hee hee
