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.
After her adventures in Sunlit Tides and Starlight Shores, Rayven is back in Lucky Palms. All of her accomplishments when she was gone earned her the multitab which I’m happy about because it’s easier than carrying a bunch of books in her inventory.
She’ll be working on the Master Mixologist lifetime wish and all the skill challenges involved.
At mixology level 2 they can moonlight as a mixologist. They even get tips.
They can learn drinks by ordering them once their skill level gets a little higher. It makes the celebrity opportunities to have drinks at different bars pretty handy.
She was able to make her own drinks and name them too. It’s a very long process so I’ve only done a couple.
But, she is working on more than just mixology. She registered as a self-employed band, Thunder Stormz, with Judd, Raine, and Irma. They auditioned for a gig at The Cactus.
It’s a mod, I couldn’t figure out how to get them a gig!
I’d be depressed too…
I’ve never seen this!
Alright, band, we gotta figure out how to get gigs. I need fifteen of them to complete the gig master skill challenge.
They started a jam session and got some tips which helped the self-employed band career. Actually, even getting tips solo counted, which I thought was weird.
When she was 4 days from aging to an elder Rayven took the youth potion which turned her back to the beginning of the young adult stage. I think I’ll let her age up again when it’s time just to see if she gets another midlife crisis.
She was still working on the photo collections too. This was the most frustrating one. I finally found a post on Carl’s Guide forums saying that it needed not only a plate of food and a glass of nectar but also a full bottle of nectar. All of my nectar is either in Barnacle Bay or Monte Vista but I lucked out and got some at the consignment shop.
I got really frustrated trying to get bathroom stuff and baby stuff for pics so ended up just posing them in the backyard.
I don’t know what this bonus section is that it refers to but I’m pretty proud, I’ve never gotten that achievement before.
She finally got a skull-cut pink diamond! I’ve got all the cuts in every gem but five. I think Supernatural comes with more gem types and more cuts though. Luckily whenever she’s a werewolf she’ll find a bunch!
Her bills did not decrease after selling her car. They’ve actually increased. I suppose because of owning another house. I’m not complaining too much. It’s kinda nice to have to work hard to pay the bills.
I’m not sure if she agrees.
She has so many skills to work on still it’s overwhelming at times. One of such is gambling which I plan to do only in Lucky Palms. She didn’t get caught counting cards, then again she didn’t play for very long.
She had to rush home because there was a burglar in her house and I’d forgotten to add an alarm!
Do you know who I am?! She looks so bad-ass.
As usual, fighting the burglar made her sweaty and exhausted.
But this time, she couldn’t go to sleep because of the drink she’d had at the casino! I forgot that energy drinks worked this way in Sims 3.
I forgot to mention, that Brent aged to teen.
She took the family to the little putt-putt golf course, Paradise Putt.
It’s a really cool place. Teens are able to play.
But children can’t. So Bindy played gnubb.
I’d added them to her household temporarily and had been messing around clicking on Bindy’s doll when I finally figured out how to make it real.
She proceeded to show off her ballet moves. I don’t want to use the imaginary friend metamorphium potion until I can actively play the household though.
The band finally got a gig and I had to restart the game because Raine was stuck like this. No clue what she had been doing before she got there.
Umm… Raine? Facing the wrong direction there. This just isn’t her day!
When she couldn’t get a gig at anywhere other than The Cactus I decided to take them all to Bridgeport.
And hey, there’s her old car at the base camp.
It was so cool seeing them all together and I was looking forward to making the imaginary friend come to life.
Unfortunately, for some unknown reason, all of their band career progress had been wiped and as you can see, Rayven was pretty high in it already. I could have dealt with that, I was going to cheat them up with mods. But then I realized they couldn’t get a gig at all. So, that was a waste of time.
I tried a few different ways to add them to her household and still keep their houses and after it all I just decided to leave things the way they have been and added them in and out of her household as needed. I found this nifty modded object that can be used to get gigs.
I put it up in the consignment shop. While they were there, Rayven gave Judd a youth potion. He looks sickly as an adult and it had been bugging me.
I decided to just get the whole band career out of the way altogether and had her spend a day and a half in the subway playing for tips. I guess I know how to pay for her bills now if I’m desperate.
And she went to the Starlight Theatre and asked about becoming a professional singer.
It’s okay to be in a band and have a solo career at the same time, right?
Regardless, that’s what she did. Unlike when she was working as an acrobat, singing for tips is kind of a waste of time.
In the next chapter, the band actually gets a gig somewhere other than The Cactus!
