This completionist challenge is like a mix between the Ultimate Sim Challenge and a Lepacy. I will complete all of the lifetime wishes, skills, collections, etc. with one sim while adding expansions in the order they originally released.
You may be wondering why Rayven’s in Starlight Shores when the last chapter ended in Lucky Palms. Well, she topped the music career completing the Rock Star lifetime wish and I wasn’t sure quite what to do with her. I’d put her in the acting career deciding to work on the Superstar Actor lifetime wish next. Then, I’d played around swapping households…
I can’t remember exactly what happened but I lost some time in the save and was left back at the moment she’d just completed the music career. I was so annoyed I decided I needed a break and I’d just play her for a while in Starlight Shores.
This is the lot I downloaded that someone made for the acting career in Starlight Shores. I really like it which is why I decided to go there for the career instead of laggy Bridgeport. (Starlight Shores Movie Studio by originalsim)
It was weird living there with only her and the pets. It was like the second floor of the house where the rest of the family used to live didn’t exist.
She did a lot of playing for tips, performing songs, and topiaries.
She finished all of the bass skill challenges and started on the piano. Kind of an akward place to set up there.
Dusty enjoyed swimming a bit too much.
And Sunny did a lot of hunting which turns out to be kinda gross when viewed close-up.
I had no idea this was even a thing! Dusty already completed all of his. Yay for something new to work on.
And then, the strangest thing happened! I forgot to give Rayven ambrosia!
I’d thought to give her a youth potion right away but then she had a midlife crisis start and that sounded too interesting to pass up.
The first thing she wanted to do was to change jobs.
I decided to give her the job that was the furthest from her personality… other than the mooching of course.
She also wanted to move which worked out well for me considering I’d always planned for her to do the criminal career in Sunlit Tides.
New town new traits! I gave her kleptomaniac so she can work on the Possession is Nine Tenths of the Law lifetime wish and workaholic because I want to get through the career fast.
Leave it to me to move into yet another house and forget to take screenshots of it. This image was borrowed from Summer’s Little Sims 3 Garden which I highly recommend if you want to look at the different lots available in a neighborhood.
I took away the chairs or whatever were originally on the side deck and put in a sculpting station and room for her keyboard.
I made the most changes in the kitchen including adding the ice cream and deep frying machines. I’d just earned the Haught Hacienda set they come with.
I later removed them because she wouldn’t stop shaking the deep fryer, and the ice cream machine constantly needed to be cleaned. While her walking around the house and shaking the deep fryer was funny it was also annoying. There are probably mods to fix them but I didn’t bother at the time.
I did end up adding some lots. Not as many as in Lucky Palms though. I’ll try to remember to link them when we see them. This consignment store is The Treasure Trove by mrsmariateetee.
And this, my friends, is why I wanted to do the criminal career in Sunlit Tides!
The criminal hideout is inside a volcano! Also, what a view, eh?
There’s no doubt that the world is beautiful. Sunny got to work on her final critter hunting skill challenge which was fish since I’d never had her fish before.
It was really funny to watch.
Rayven finally learned the last of the topiary sculptures. Of course, it was the coolest of them all that took so long.
She ended up getting the missing metal sculpture on her first try so I suppose that sort of makes up for it. Topiary and metal are the only ones that have sculptures that can only be made in that medium.
I wasn’t really sure what hidden skills to work on while there. I have no idea why it took so long for me to get around to getting her diving skill. It’s only two levels and she started it in Bridgeport!
I was going to have her find stars for the logic skill challenge but then remembered I was planning to do that in Aurora Skies. She did discover one… it was an orange moon or something she named Cheeto. The funny thing is that in conversations she now has the option to “talk about moon Cheeto”.
If you watched my Playing by the Pack videos then you might recognize Lolita Goth over there. This is the neighborhood I’d decided to move her to as her final destination. I kept her relationship with Zachary Green too. Rayven was trying to play for tips and Lolita, the mixologist at the bar, started noisily beating on the drums. Rayven was not amused.
I’d decided that the best way to take advantage of her klepto trait would be to steal from people who invited her to their houses for parties. What better way to make friends than to have an autograph session? (Sunlit Tides Island Plaza by MissCypress)
I thought this was really cool. I’ve always seen the option on rabbitholes but I thought they went inside until I accidentally clicked on it with Judd one day. Sidenote: Don’t send them home during an autograph session, the sims follow them.
Finally, another midlife crisis wish! She had one or two before this to plan new outfits.
If we’re gonna flirt with him we better be on good terms. Also, he’s a fellow criminal. Maybe he was just trying to get her attention. This was the first time I’ve ever let a sim free in Sims 3.
So funny! The cop was not pleased.
The next day they grouped up so she could get her flirt on.
I agree. Kind of disappointing, it would have been a funny meet-cute.
After that, she got these wishes constantly.
I tracked the guy down and while she was attempting to flirt with him his wife was having his baby!!!
He stayed to give her lots of tips. I felt bad for his poor wife!
I just realized it doesn’t show the count on this. I think it was twelve. The only one I didn’t do was buy a new car because she was totally broke. She got a new tattoo but it’s on her chest and I felt like a close-up pic of that would be really weird.
I decided to let her keep aging since the youth potion is in a chest in Lucky Palms. She could have made some I suppose but I didn’t really care much. Coming in the next chapter: lots of dominos and grand theft auto!
