Long Time No See. Castaway Challenge!

So Its been awhile since we posted anything....Life and school just keep getting in the way. Today Haven and I (Katie) Bring you a new challenge requested by a friend Lori( Luv ya Lori).
It is called the Castaway Challenge. Here are a few pictures of our test game for this challenge.

You are lost at sea, after days of floating, you wash up a beach hungry and exhausted. Soon you realize that you are the only human on this disserted island.  You must find ways to survive such as growing your own food and building your own shelter.

First Off!!!

·         We have been using this island to play this challenge but you don’t have to, just as long as there are no rabbit holes communities or people in this world.  We did not  make this world/island but hats off to Shivar over at Fuzzy  Logic Dishwasher  for this awesome Island
The Island can be found here:
Next…Making your Sim or Sims!
·         You are only allowed two Sims they must be YA/Adult.If you wish to have a pet in place of a "human" sim you may have one but only so long as they can fit the castaway theme,such as wild looking pets. these are the only sims you will be able to control. You may be allowed only one sim if you wish for a more challenging game.
·         Lifespan can be whatever setting you choose. (your Sims about to be aged to an elder, GO AHEAD set it to EPIC!!!)
·         Dress code: Bear in mind they are Castaways so they must look the part…that means NO CHANEL or designer close! J The Rest is up to you!
·         Traits: One Sim must have the Green Thumb trait
Other suggested traits
1.       Insane Trait- they talk to themselves which helps with their social needs!
2.       Loves the Outdoors Trait- They are always outside which gives them a boost in their mood!
3.       Eco Friendly Trait-They get a positive moodlet when gardening!
4.       Animal Friendly Trait- Talking with the animals helps with their social needs!
DON’T! You CAN NOT have any LIFETIME WISHES that are rabbit hole related (like doctor, or Chef) or People Related (like Super Popular or Surround by family-remember the point is to get off the island not Populate it!)
Note: The Perfect Garden or Noah’s Ark is a good Life Time Wish to have!

Second…Life on the Island!
·         The world will spawn Mail Man, Paparazzi (LN), and Paper boys. There is no way to get rid of this “Glitch” so IGNORE them…they DO NOT exist, simply figment of your Sims imagination (Why the Insane trait is Suggested)
·         Lots/Shelter:
You may choose whatever size lot you want…We Don’t Discriminate! You want a big lot GET IT!
·         You may have children if you wish just keep in mind you may ONLY PLAY YOUR 2 ORIGINAL SIMS. You cannot control the children in any way and their traits must be Randomized. You cannot choose them!
-Note: No Adoptions! Kids or animals! Unless they are stays! (pets not kids)
The Real Fun Begins!
·         Set your funds to 500.
Note: use the cheat…family funds(family name)500
·         Since you just washed up on the beach, CLEARLY you have no shelter! Build your shelter as money becomes available.
-Note:  You can gain money by selling produce, rocks, small animals, insects or you can ALSO fish (good for fertilizer, food and MONEY)! After you gain enough simoleans you may get an easel and paint yourself some MONEY!
-DO NOT- you CAN NOT have anything electronic…so writing on the “computer” for money is out.
-HOWEVER! There is a wonderful mod that is a scribbling pad that has all the same interactions as writing on the computer and you can even keep it in your inventory. Think of it as keeping a journal and making money out of it! Thanks Bunches to Buzzler over at Mod the Sims for this FANTASTIC mod! It can be found here:
·         Since it is an island you must grow your own food you can do this by gathering seeds around the island or using the cheat (Testingcheatsenabled true…then type Buy Debug On) to make a starter garden. Lattice and Tomatoes only to start with since your starting at gardening level one. You are allowed to have 6 plants in your starter garden. That 3 tomatoes and 3 lattice.
Remember to turn testingcheatsenabled to FALSE after you have your starter garden.
-Note: Please no Gardening Mods as it kinda defeats the purpose!
·         As we have said before! You may not have electronics such as computers, radios, or TV
·         As for furniture: You must have the cheapest bed, bathtub, sink, ect. You may use a fire pit to cook veggies or recolor the cheapest stove to look kind of like a crate.  Just so long as it looks like it could have washed up on the beach or built by you.
-Note: If you have the Generations EP then you may use the sleeping bags instead of beds. It will give you a Moodlet Boost (Snug as a Bug) as opposed to the Negative Moodlet (sore from sleeping on cheap bed)
-Another Note: For our challenge we used the castaway sets. They are only five dollars so you get the most out of your 500 simoleans! They also keep to the theme! Thank you to lHawk07 over at Mod the Sims. You can find it here:
To Win The Challenge!!!
·         You must earn 50,000 Simoleans and complete the CAS sims lifetime wish in order to be rescued from the island!
To Loose the Challenge!!!
·         You automatically lose when both of your original CAS Sims die.
·         Or you fail to earn 50,000  or fail to complete the sims Lifetime wish before their elder birthday or age to elder.

Have Fun! We Just Wanna Wish Ya’ll Good Luck! We Are All Counting On Ya!

Gypsy Forest

Hello Simmers Katie and Haven here
Its been sometime since our last upload. Its been a crazy summer,but here we are with a brand new lot. Today Haven and I bring you a Gypsy camp hidden deep in a forest. Here your Gypsy Sims can find a safe place to camp and socialize with other Gypsies. It has 3 wagons. A men's wagon, and women's wagon and a family wagon. Nestled among the trees lays a small cottage that can sleep four. Hidden under the house lays a long forgotten graveyard. But don't worry the spirits are well at rest. the house does contain lights from the Outdoor Living stuff pack as well as a washer from Ambitions. This lot was built with the latest patch and all the games to date.

All the CC is included with the exception of 2 package files however here are links to the files. There are not needed they just look good.

this first site is in Spanish it is the door curtain used in the house. the link is about halfway down and dated 22 de febrero de 2011( or in English February,22, 2011)

The second Link is to a crystal ball computer on MTS

Now on to the pictures

Get the Gypsy Forest here
Thank you and enjoy Don't forget to leave a comment

Its Finally Here!

Katie and Haven here and we are both super excited to introduce to you our long awaited Camelot Castle. This project has truly been a labor of love that has taken the better part of a year to complete.( Life,school and family stuff caused a delay)We hope that you enjoy playing with Camelot, as much as we enjoyed building it.
OK now down to the details! I am afraid that Haven and i went a bit overboard with the CC and as such this is not a small download. Just a word of warning.Camelot was built with the lates patch and needs all the expansions for it to show right, We also used a few things from the Outdoor Liveing stuff pack. Also needed are a few store items such as the Castle sets both the build and the furnishings. The Wilderness Book shelf and the Knight from the Gothic set were also used.
For added fun we placed rabbithole rugs made for residenital lots. thses are not include but you can get them here
This neat little rug works just like a rabbithole allowing Camelot to be its own little commuity which is truer to real castle life.
A final note. Don't be scared of teh skeletons in our closets. I have an odd sense of humor. Keep your eyes open they could be anywhere. (just like the gnomes!^_^)
PS dont forget to pay your respects to the Great King and his Beautiful Queen who rest just below sacred grounds,
Now wiithout futher adu we present The Legendary Camelot
Legend Tells of a great king that pulled a sword from a stone and changed the world. A once powerfun and prosperous kingdom now lays dorment awaiting the return of the legendary king. The next chapter of Camelot is in your hands.
Get it HERE!
