THE ISLAND CHALLENGE Far away in the Simsian Sea lies a tropical island without a name. It is home of two gods. One is the red fire god Llamatipoca who lives in the volcano of the island and is an unforgiving short tempered god who constantly ask for favors, rituals and offerings to still his hunger for attention. The other one is the absolute counterpart of the volcano god. It’s appearance is so beautiful that there is no comparison of beauty in the universe. It’s the wise white god of light, fertility and humor. They say it answers to the name of “Player.” This god wants that every plant, animal and Sim living on the island flourishes and reaches its full potential. “Player” keeps the balance of nature on the island and watches over every single being that lives on it. Especially the Sims. The Prophecy It is said that one day, two Sims will reach the island and the final battle of the gods begins. Both gods will work wonders and miracles to change the course of fate of the island. They say that only 8 Sims who are master survivors will perform the ritual of all rituals and free the island of this battle and ascend to the heavens of glory. GOAL: Have 8 Sims living on the island that are at least level 4 in fishing, fitness and gardening. The challenge fails if all Sims are dead so keep them alive! WHAT YOU NEED: A pair of dice (6er)* 2 Sims A lot with an island * If you do not own a pair of dice, check your app/play store on your smartphone The Sims: They must be young adults. The traits and aspirations don’t matter in this case, so choose wisely. A squeamish snob will make the challenge harder than a cheerful outdoor lover. Gender doesn’t matter. However, it is recommended to start with a couple that can produce children. Both Sims start with no skills and nothing in their inventories. Appearance doesn’t matter. You can make them look and dress them however you like. Both Sims can either know each other or they can be complete strangers to one another. The relationship between them doesn’t matter. You control all Sims that are on the island. The Island Lot: The island is the new home of your Sims and will be the main stage until completion of the challenge. So build and decorate it accordingly. On the island should be a big volcano (pool). The Sims have to be able to reach the volcano pit and be able to “take a swim.” The layout is totally up to you. You can use as many plants, trees and stones from build/buy mode you like. If you are not that much of a builder and would like to start right away, you can use my island I have created.

Setup and Arrangement of Necessary Start Objects: Objects: 1 workbench 1 bench 1 garbage bin 1 sink 1 campfire (or grill for base game only) Every other usable object has to be crafted during game play. The crafting system will be explained down below. Debug Objects**: 5 harvestable vegetable/fruit plants (or more). 1 fishing ground. 20 twigs (or more). **You can access the debug mode by pressing the keys CTRL+SHIFT+C and then typing bb.showhiddenobjects into the console. You can find all collectibles (fruits, crystals, etc.) in there. Type “twigs” for the twigs or the name of a fruit to find the plant/fruit you want. The more you have in the beginning, the easier the challenge gets! You decide! How To Start: Set aging to off. Let your Sims swim to the island. Block off the island so your Sims can’t leave the lot and so that other Sims (NPC’s) get in. As a god, you have mighty powers and have to use them right away from the start. Use CTRL+SHIFT+C to activate your powers and type in these 3 spells: testingcheats on household.autopay_bills true money 666999 If you reload the game, you have to redo this procedure. We don’t want your godly powers to get rusty, do we? How To Play: Your Sims can’t leave the island (lot). They are cut off from civilization completely. No jobs, no luxury items, no electricity! Your Sims are alone on this island now. Stranded. Exhausted. But with hope! You as their godly helper will ensure they make it till the final ritual. The Sims have to work with what they have. Which is not much! But hey, at least the sun is always shining and nature has a lot to give. What your Sims will mainly do is tend the fruit trees, fish in the pond, work on their skills and craft objects that will make life on the island more comfortable. Crafting is one of the key aspects during this challenge. The Sims can create some furniture pieces or art with the workbench, but can also collect twigs that are shattered throughout the island to create some usable objects. (More about it down below under “crafting.”) Every day the gods will intervene and will change the fate of your Sims. Roll the dices to know what they have in store for them! (More down below.) Make sure to take good care of all of your Sims. You as their god can control them and point them to the right direction. Have fun and good luck!! How To Get More Sims To The Island? Your Sims can have children and start some sort of super survival family. If the gods want to, they will send you some Sims during the challenge (more down below). Since aging is set to off and you need 8 young adult or older Sims for the final ritual, you have to age up Sims in CAS. (CTRL+SHIFT+C and type in bb.casfulleditmode into the console, then SHIFT click on Sim to go to CAS and age him/her up.) Spells You Can Use If The Dice Tell You Too: Make Sims Happy: SHIFT click on the mailbox and click “Fill Needs Household” SHIFT click on Sim and click “Make Happy” Give Sims Skill Points: (While Sim is selected) stats.set_level skill_fitness [enter level] stats.set_skill_level major_fishing [enter level] stats.set_skill_level major_gardening [enter level] Give Sims Aspiration Points: (While Sim is selected) sims.give_satisfaction_points [enter amount] The Dice Roll - The Will of the Gods: Always have your dice on hand, they are the gods will. One for the “The Player” and one for Llamatipoca the volcano god. Black and white. Good and evil. They are the ying and the yang of this challenge and whatever they say HAS TO BE EXECUTED! You have to roll the dice every Sim day in the morning when the sun is still on the rise. The dice will tell you what the gods have in store for your Sims. You have to execute the will right away. Pause the game/go to build mode and do as the gods say. Don’t miss to roll the dice! If you forget a day, the gods get angry and they will kill a Sim*! *(Perform will 12 from down below) What Happens If You Roll…: (2) The white god shines it’s light of happiness and fertility on the island. Every Sim is suddenly feeling better and draws more hope out of this miracle. [make all Sims happy from spells list] (3) Wow! What is this thing? What does it do? A new skill object gets washed ashore! You won’t believe what mysterious and odd objects can reach this island..amazing! [every skill object except electronic items is allowed, choose 1] (4) 15 new twigs! [get 15 new twigs from debug mode in build mode and place them on the island] (5) The white god is pleased with your achievements! He shines his bright light of wisdom on one of your Sims! [Sim of your choice gets 2 new skill points using the skill cheat in spells] (6) The tide is declining and a new Sim gets washed ashore! Who is this? Where did this Sim come from? Only the gods know… [The Sim is fully random** in traits, aspiration and age. Appearance and sexuality is your desire. If you already have 8 Sims in the household you can ignore this will. We assume the Sim died on its exhausting journey to the island. Place a skeleton if you’d like it to look realistic] (7) 5 new twigs! [get 5 new twigs from debug mode in build mode and place them on the island] (8) Llamatipoca is sending a thunderstorm to the island. Sadly one of your Sims (your choice) gets struck by lightning and loses 4 skill points. [use cheat in spells] (9) The white god has blessed one of your Sims! Your Sim suddenly has a new surviving talent! [give one Sim 4,000 aspiration points by using the cheat in spells] (10) Llamatipoca is angry! Sacrifice 2 fully grown harvestable plants/trees to the volcano [delete in build mode] Bye bye harvest! (11) Oh wow! This is exactly what we always wanted! Your Sims are so glad the gods have heard their prayers and sent them a new object to the island. [go shopping, go wild, you can choose whatever you like no matter costs in build/buy mode] (12) Llamatipoca is absolutely furious that you are disturbing his sleep! Sacrifice a Sim in the volcano to calm him! Preferably a virgin. [Let the Sims swim in the volcano pool and block the border with stones or fences. This Sim has to drown to death] The Crafting System: You may have noticed that you get a lot of twigs during this challenge. Those are very important in building new objects and shaping the appearance and habitability of the island. Your Sims can craft objects that may get very useful in game. Objects crafted with the workbench don’t use up twigs and are allowed for use. If an object is not on the crafting list, it’s not allowed. Decorative objects that don’t affect the Sims in any way (no skill objects or any object with an interaction other than “view”) are allowed at any time. Bed (double) = 10 Twigs Bed (single) = 5 Twigs Hut without furniture*** = 40 Twigs & 4 Fruit Fishing Ground = 30 Twigs Campfire/Grill = 5 Twigs Workbench = 10 Twigs Bonfire = 10 Twigs Bench = 5 Twigs Chair = 3 Twigs Table (single) = 8 Twigs Table (2 slots) = 10 Twigs Table (3 slots) = 15 Twigs Ottoman = 5 Twigs Shower = 25 Twigs Sink = 15 Twigs Bathtub = 30 Twigs Bar = 20 Twigs Bookshelf = 10 Twigs Shelf = 3 Twigs Chest = 5 Twigs Wedding Arch = 5 Twigs **Build it wherever you want, however you want. It’s purely decorational! But having some huts surely looks cool! How To End: When you have 8 grown up Sims, you can start the ritual! All Sims have to be level 4 in fishing, fitness and gardening! Get them naked and let them dance around a big bonfire (craft with twigs) or a wedding arch (craft with twigs) if you only have the base game. Music and some fishy or fruity sacrifice can be useful! You are a god, remember? How do you want to be wooed? Arrange the ritual however you want. Be creative! Have fun!
