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.
I decided that dominos sounded like a laid-back beach type of game so I added a table to the revamped Tropic Llama Library by Razbrry9876.
She learned the mixology skill and moonlighted as a mixologist a couple of times but nobody showed up and it was really boring so I decided to wait until she went somewhere with a busier bar scene. Ironically this lot is called The Hot Spot by MizzRoseBud. It did not live up to its name.
I put up a dartboard for those times that she couldn’t really go out and do other things like when it was close to time for work.
Speaking of work, it turns out that while the big volcano hide-out is super cool looking in theory, it takes them so long to get there they’re always late for work! Hence the teleporter. After topping the criminal career as a Master Theif she started back over at the branching point to work on Emperor of Evil.
I would teleport her there and have her do something or other while waiting for work to start.
It looks cool even at night.
And yes, she was working on drums now, her final instrument.
She got burglarized again. This time Rayven had no sympathy.
The cop told Rayven that any items that were taken (none were) would be in her inventory and then stood there angrily emoting to herself like a creep while Rayven had her breakfast.
If you’re wondering yes, she had been dappling in some klepto stealing herself. Unfortunately, I hadn’t factored in that the value of the stolen items was depreciated.
Then, I realized that she didn’t even have to be invited into someone’s home to steal! She could just steal cars right out of the parking lots!
Or their driveways. This would have been a lot more fun in a place like Bridgeport where there are a lot of sims and a lot of parking areas.
The animations for klepto stealing are a lot better in Sims 3 than in Sims 4 where they just kinda wave their hand.
Did I just steal that guys car or is that what he normally rides to work?!
Don’t worry, the story progression mod will be giving them all new cars again sooner or later… I think.
I opened up an unowned mansion and had her clear it out of everything with any value.
In other news, Lolita Goth had a baby! I got an in-game picture of her since I needed one of a child being carried. This is Trendy Tides Salon by TenderWolf.
I’m not sure why, but the dog and cat seemed so much easier to keep happy while living here. Maybe the easily accessible sleeping space? Or lack of distractions?
Or not needing to rush home to fill a food bowl?
Time stops for no man and I’d let them age to elders. When the bar didn’t show much time left I decided a youth potion was in order.
For both of them. Good thing they’re constantly working on earning happiness points!
Sorry stray, I can’t make everyone happy.
As to life extension, you might not know that the sauna has an option that gives them back a day with each use like eating life fruit. That’s all well and good but I was planning on using a youth potion on her too so it would be pointless.
I learned something else interesting. Every day two or three hours after she got home from work someone would call her for a date. I almost always ignore calls and keep the phone on silent so I was surprised.
Oh sorry, did you think we were going to do something exciting?
Dominos isn’t very exciting but what a view.
Yes, another dominos pic… but hey it’s Lolita!
Her life had a fairly set routine to it broken up by the parties she was occasionally invited to in which she was the perfect guest stealing their stuff and mooching money off of them then playing instruments in their living rooms.
Maybe Rayven wasn’t the best person but would you really consider her an Emperor of Evil? Yes. Yes you should. Red glow and all.
She stayed in the criminal career for the klepto steal career level modifier. Then spent most nights after getting her steals for the day (there’s a limit) playing drums for tips to the huge crowd that always gathered on this lot… which is why nobody was ever at the bars.
Having proven herself both a master thief and emperor of evil and robbing Lucky Palms blind it was time to move on before she got herself arrested.
She still hadn’t completed her acting career so back to Starlight Shores she went—time to check out all of her spoils.
Remember how I mentioned the extreme depreciation? I believe it was done because people were completing the Possession is 9/10ths of the Law lifetime wish with one single car theft.
Rayven’s car she’d been driving since Bridgeport had barely depreciated.
It was only a speed 8 and the Vaguester is a 10 so I repainted it to look like her old car and sold it. My hopes were that not having a $50k+ car would lower the bills.
Here’s the rest of the stuff that she stole. I really think it would be fun doing a challenge in which you only furnish and decorate with stolen goods.
Back in Starlight Shores, she worked on her acting career and made endless sculptures.
This one was just so real to life! *cough*
After deciding to shelf sculpting, for now, she worked a bit on mixology. And photo collections… hence the flamingo.
She threw a party to get rid of the drinks. Annoyingly, most sims wouldn’t take them themselves and she had to pass them around.
There were a few stragglers and she managed to get some more pics for photo collections.
I think this might have been the first party Rayven’s thrown. I think the biggest problem with holding parties is the sims bottlenecking at the front door. A few sims will come in other doors in the house but most insist on the main door. This leaves a good part of the guests standing outside like idiots… maybe there’s a mod to fix that.
Anyway, in the next chapter, Rayven returns home to Lucky Palms and immediately gets robbed! Karma perhaps? We’ll see.
Completed in this and the previous chapter:
