See this screen? It is a mess, huh. This is me, ASimWen, trying to remember how to send my Sims on an outing in The Sims 3. I remember thinking that I was surprised to see that I couldn't send my Sims to the movies like this. I found a way to do it later on.
I am trying the Completion Challenge, (rules on file at the Sims3Challenges Yahoo group). There really isn't much to it, just do everything the game offers. No worries, the rules come with a nice spreadsheet check items off as you accomplish them.
I played TS3 when it first came out, right up through Pets, then I stopped, cold turkey. My laptop blew a hard drive, I didn't like Late Night, and I hated horses trotting through my Sim's yard at will. I had a new hard drive installed in my laptop, and resumed playing Sims, TS2 style. I still play TS2. Alot. And was happy playing TS2 exclusively until I started reading reviews on TS3 Seasons and Supernatural. Had to play TS3 again....HAD TO. So here I am. I looked through all the places I know on the 'net where there are Sims challenges, and decided to go with this one after rejoining the TS3Challenges Yahoo Group.
Anyway, my founder is Shane Cartwright. Uh...the game named him Shan Cartwright, and I added and 'e' onto Shan to his name to give it more of a Western sound to match Cartwright. *Bonanza*.
Shane's rolled stats:
Become an International Super Spy
He is a Taurus, and is 5 days from turning elder at the writing of this blog entry. He has been easy to play, doesn't complain or cry when I push him to the edge of performance. His appearance is game generated too..I just added facial and body hair. He isn't bad looking.
Okie dokie. I am only playing the base game right now, after uninstalling Seasons, Supernatural, Generations. Ambitions, and World Adventures. Some items were left behind by those expansions. So if you see things in the picutres that you know is not in the base game, that is how it happened. Thanks for this idea, Ndayeni. I am starting this blog late, so the first few pictures are game generated from Shane's memory scrapbook.

She slept in the guest room, and got up and left around 3 AM. It was two days when Bessie passed to the great Sim beyond. When she did, Shane got the invite from the Science facility to participate in an exclusive experiment.

Master of the Arts
No Sense of Humor
Now have a playable ghost, and have resurrected a ghost. I doubt at this point that she is going to be able to fulfill her LTW but she is sure going to try. She already had some skills in painting and guitar, so that helps.
|Birthday to adult|
Shane was crestfallen, then realized he should probably look for a teenager to befriend, leaving plenty of time for romancing once the girl aged up. He started going to public places, and found Bella Bachelor and Kaylynn Langerak as teens. He liked Bella's looks but she was Ms. Ice Queen, even as a teen. Kaylynn seemed more open and friendly.
That's Kaylynn at Shane's party, up there in the pink shirt just to his left. A day after she turned young adult, she was friends enough with Shane to move in with him, and break up with Malcom Landgrabb with whom she was going steady.
In the meantime, Bessie becomes a Master Painter. Now to work on guitar. She already had 6 or 7 skill points. She had contributed alot of simoleons to the household selling her paintings, and had fulfilled a wish to decorate the house with 15 of her fine works.

To Become A Rock Star
There is plenty of time in her life to accomplish this.
To get Marion's beginning traits I rolled dice for a number, then hit the 'random' dice in the game that number. Marion two beginning traits:
Have fun, and keep on Simmin'!
