So, I’ve done this challenge once before, but got bogged down in blogging the story, and then gave up playing it because I played further than I blogged and couldn’t remember where the story left off.
So when I decided to try my hand at it again, I decided not to blog, just play… and what do you know? I finished it. Only took me 5 or 6 months but I did it!
First up…. what is the Build Newcrest Challenge? It is a 10-generation Legacy style challenge in which Simmers attempt to both build up and populate the empty world of Newcrest, with various rules and goals for each generation. Every heir gets a different aspiration, career and lot/building goal to complete before they can move on.
If you’re interested, the rules are here. I did not create this challenge, but I did enjoy playing it, because it challenged me as a game player and as a builder.
I started with a sim by the name of Tess Handy.
Tess is the daughter of Jack Handy and Bobi Builder. Jack & Bobi are two sims I keep around ina Build Save. They test out my houses to make sure they are functional.
Of course, for this challenge, I aged Tess up and moved her into her own save.
In the links below, I will be sharing all each generation’s accomplished lots and downloads. All of them can be found on the Gallery under my id: chillyzgrrl or the hashtags #buildnewcrest or #handyfamily
In addition to these lots, I built extra lots. Most of them were temporary houses that the family lived in while I played out the challenge.
I hope you enjoy these, even without a blogged story. I had fun doing it!
