I know they have those little challenges from a cheap home. (Not Metro's the ones that give you the option to Accept or Ignore a challenge) One of them actually included a challenge where the house was struck by a meteor, and this was before I got Ambitions added to my Sims 3 collection. You can even get meteor rocks from the "BuyDebug" Cheat and it's vanilla. So I think meteor's without ambitions are included but not in depth and and Sim's don't die from them.

Actually the cheap home challenge is just multiple space rocks spread all over the place, and the Buydebug rocks can be found in the wild, too.

I feel like I'm really missing out on this! I got Ambitions for nearly a year now and still no meteor attacks!

I was really unlucky (and slightly dim) with the only meteor I've ever had. It hit two days after I got Ambitions and I had never heard of meteors. I had no idea what was going on and didn't move my sim, so that was the end of her!
She wasn't even using the telescope, she was gardening.

I've never seen a meteor, but I'm really hoping that I will in my dynasty and it will hit this burglar that's robbed ms twice.

Trust me the last place you want a meteor is your dynasty. I once was attepting a dynasty and a meteor took out the whole garden while my founder was in it! That really depressed me because that garden had life fruit, death flowers, money trees, steak plants, and tons of perfect fruits and veggies!

Can't the meteor land somewhere other than your sims lot? I meant I was hoping it would hit somewhere else in town and kill that burglar.

While it is possible, don't count on it. They like hitting your sims. Last night, I was playing a little more on the test character for Mad Max, and I got the message. I immediately paused the game, hit "alwaysallowbuildbuy on" and "moveobjects on" and put all my plants in the basement. I had worked very ery hard on that garden "not cheating!!" and there was no way I was going to let a meteor cancel all my hard work!!
Somebody here had a screen shot of ghost babies laying on the ground in the graveyard, although I don't remember who that was.
Me.  ;D Took me awhile, but I found it here

Yeah, they can land anywhere in town. In other game my sim was collecting some seeds and she got hit by one, she was also the founder of another attempt of a dynasty, so I think the universe is trying to tell me something.

Carlos has a point. They are cool to see; but, my sim lost too many friends in various games due to meteors.

I have never had a meteor in my game either, and I really do want one!  :'( Have had ambitions since it came out.

I know it ruins lots of things but I do love these random events in the sims.

Two, yes two, meteors have hit my town. I have been playing this file for 9 sim weeks. About half of my townies are walking around completely covered in ashes (all black) from the fire it causes. Luckily, none of those meteors hit my house, it was the bookstore and the grocery store.

I do kind of laugh when I see people wishing for meteors, especially when you consider the holocausts those things have caused in the past.  :P

And for the record, meteors have nothing to do with telescopes.  They have to do with sims being outside.  I am of the opinion that the reason so many people believe the two are linked is possibly because that telescopes were likely one of the few outdoor activities that those players indulged in.

I've had 2 meteor strikes.  The same day I installed Ambitions I saw the pink sign, and wondered what that was, as my sim was going to drive to the bookstore.  He went on his merry way and while he was in the bookstore I saw smoke from the area of his house. :o  I had him drive home and a meteor had hit the street in front of his house, right where his truck was when I saw the sign.  I thought at the time the meteor was aiming for him. :D 

The second was when Michael Bachelor was bouncing away on his trampoline when the pink sign popped up and sure enough the meteor hit the trampoline.  I was very fortunate in both meteor hits no sims were killed or injured, but it sure makes the house and yard impossible to play any more...constant disgusted moodlet.  Michael couldn't do anything with his garden so I had him move...same with the other sim.  :P

bshag: yes you were fortunate. My sim was trying for Rock star and the theater was hit. Stiles McGraw and the other band members were toast. Then in another game, she went to China and the Camp site was hit, 5 of the tourists were killed. Then in another game, she went to her first day of work in Brudgeport and 3 people died. The rest ran around burnt for the rest of the game.
Glad I haven't had once since. Knock on Wood!

:o Wow!  I have read where some are getting multiple meteor strikes but wow, that's a lot.

One kid over on the sims 3 forum had a school hit and grimy would claim the kids as they came out of the school.  He had a picture up of grim reaper and lots of tombstones outside the school.  Very sad.

I actually had an immortal dynasty fail because the founder died to a meteor. Thankfully, it was early in the dynasty where the founder was still a young adult so it wasn't that big a loss.

My first meteor crash didn't go so good
« Reply #120 on: August 29, 2011, 12:12:47 AM »
I started a new game in Hidden Springs and on the second day after my sim got work at the Military Base, I had a pop message that my sim was wondering why it was getting so dark. And there was a button to move the camera to him so I click it all excited to see my first meteor crash and while the camera was moving to him the game crashed to the desktop.  :'(
The first crash I've had in a few weeks and it had to pick that moment to do it.
Think I'll go pout now.

I have only ever had one meteor strike in all my games. I just assumed it was something that happened with the right combination of traits. My sim was insane, unlucky, loser, clumsy, and something else. She was just getting off work at the business building, and I was watching her home. The notice popped up, and the camera panned to my sim, but I had missed all the action. I only got to see the aftermath. Many sims died, many more were singed, including my sim, and the Grim was working overtime. My sim ran around collecting all the meteor rocks, and I didn't have the experience to appreciate what was going on. Now, I think it'd be entertaining if a meteor hit the asylum in my Asylum Project. The game is rather dull, and a meteor might just be the ticket. Granted, it would probably kill my score for the project, but then again, my sim would probably get an early release. :)

Sorry mods for bringing up an old topic but I wanted to share this with people who don't always read the stories.  I am not asking for anyone to read my dynasty but I had to share the pictures I got of this meteor coming down.  I've had several meteors happen but a lot of times trying to save after the damage causes me to get an error.  It's weird and I blame my computer getting old.  Below is the link to the post so I don't post the pictures in more than one spot.

Meteors
« Reply #124 on: June 08, 2012, 02:54:36 PM »
I heard talk of there being meteors but I have to say, I didn't really believe/understand/know exactly what you were talking about.  ;D Then I was working on my latest building project and I moved into the house next door so I could move the time on and get the sun to go round the other side of my build so I could see better. Anyway, I'd only just made the house next door the active one and the sim wondered why it got dark suddenly. I ignored it and then a meteor hit right where she was standing.

I've never had a meteor hit before, it was quite alarming! How often does it happen, and does it normally aim straight for your active sim?

It was in Appoloosa plains, which I haven't played in before. Does it only happen there or can it happen anywhere?

I didn't mind too much, it was just a random sim, but if it happened to one of my sims, I think I'd be quite upset, it seems a pretty horrible certain death.  :-\
