Alien Invasion ~ A Domination Dynasty
« on: April 13, 2020, 09:37:28 AM »
After a six-year break from playing Sims I recently came back to it and decided to have another go at completing this dynasty, it took a few attempts as they always do, plus my memory was super rusty but on try..........5 or 6 I think I finally finished it!

No story but I did take notes.

Faon : Ambitious, Family Oriented, Neat, Artistic, Genius, LTW Swimming in Cash.

Turoskel_DD_Faon.jpg

Faon is a CAS made clone of Sezzad who was an abduction baby I had saved to the bin as a young adult.

I had almost completed this dynasty but right at the last group of kids realised I'd missed the best friend requirement for moving them out, so while I thought I was on the home stretch I'd failed half way through.

This attempt I decided to cut back a little and removed all the packs I had not used at all, or at least I thought I had not used them, so poor Faon no longer had her strong pregnancy stomach and they now had to pay bills, which meant some visits from the repo man as I never remember to pay them, I forget which LTR comes with what sometimes.

Picture taken post dynasty with the help of Nraas mover, portrait panel and a lot of patience

I liked the idea of them having a uniform of sorts so after they became young adults everybody got dressed in the alien gear with variations of accent colour, partly so I could tell them apart but also because it gave me Star Trek vibes.

Despite giving Faon a lighter skintone on the slider every drone has the same skintone as Sezzad, hair colours varied though between black, brown, blonde, grey and green. I think it's random but I do wonder if some is genetic passed down from Sezzads abductee father.

All drones got the Swimming in Cash LTW on age up, a wish enhancing serum before completion (either by midas touch or money collected from real estate) then an age freeze potion before moving out.

Reproduction Day 1 Birth
Children: Tukkir, Takkav, Zadra
Clones: Qox, Chakan, Izaze

This was fairly straight forward, Faon worked on leveling alchemy while Sezzad concentrated on growing her ingredients and gathering.

At home I built him a little tractor area and for his career I planted ghost chilli bushes bought from the grocery store, then built up the amount until most of the tractorable area was filled.

Money trees keep bugging out for me unfortunately, they get stuck on harvest with nothing too harvest so I end up deleting them.

At 648 plants harvested I stopped him from harvesting, now Faon would ride the tractor instead, getting her two gardening challenges as well.

For most of this time Faon had been toadified, I left her that way because it's faster to harvest honey without the hat changes, and I wanted the honeycomb for potent jars of friendship, but I made a mistake when I didn't get her a toad kiss as soon as she was done, instead while she went home from the alchemy store I had Sezzad create his elixirs, and he went and got himself toadified too!

Toads can't kiss toads so I had to send them out to find random strangers to do it, Faon got cured so I had Sezzad ask for a kiss and instead of curing him it toadified Faon again, agghhh.

So this time they both asked strangers for a kiss and eventually we were ready to try for baby, a day later than it should have been but never mind.

No real problems this time round, a few liquid job boosters and days spent at the drafting table soon got the jobs maxed, once both hit proficient painter I stopped them from painting, the artistic kids would be my painters for this round of masterpieces.

So in between working on their own jobs Tukkir, Zadra and Izaze painted their siblings and each other, the door to the room was kept locked for the parents and I also put the chess table in there too as I wanted the logic skill for Ghosthunter later on.

Reproduction Day 3 Birth
Children: Sotol, Qeecal, Tulan
Clones: Razali, Nuvav, Nueto

After the last one went so well this one was a right mess, I wasted well over a week on the Art Appraiser career for them both,  my plan was to get the ability to paint a masterpiece at will but having not played the game for six years I had forgotten about the ITF opportunity bug so that was never going to happen.

I don't know why but when I started Sezzad had a high school diploma but Faon didn't, so in week six the game decided she needed to attend graduation, meaning a day off work and school for nothing, and then when the kids aged up to YA two did so after midnight so I ended up with two graduation days in a row for them.

My original plan for this reproduction day had been painter and I wish I had stuck with it as I ended up doing it anyway, as it happened Faon painted three masterpieces in a row so that was pretty fast, then Bixir decided to be a pain and took about ten attempts with both parents and Nekkol trying to get her portrait done.

I was so fixated on those I failed to notice that Glyxon had missed his first day of work until I got the warning he needed to buck his ideas up, he had his uniform on so I don't know what had happened there, got route failed to the carpool I guess, it is chaotic with eight sims in a house.

I had prevented them both from doing any logic related activities up until now so they could mostly do their job at home, I think between them they did about eight actual Ghosthunting jobs after the babies were child age and the rest was all done at the chess table with liquid job boosters.

The kids were no hassle this time either apart from Razali took a long time to get her portrait done, there is always one who is awkward.

The game has already started messing with my plan when it comes to housing, moving its own clones into some of the empty homes, but also some original townie homes have become empty due to deaths so I just needed to tweak my spreadsheet a bit.

I thought with story progression off the game wouldn't move people in but it seems it still does some things even when it's off.

Spending time on Art Appraiser wasn't a total waste as I gave them both Savvy Sculptor for their extra trait (I bought the rebel influence) and this meant they zoomed through learning the sculpting skill.

My last attempt firefighter worked as normal, this time I got that bug where the fire alarm blares and as soon as you go to do the job it vanishes, annoying but not game breaking as I just had Quis exercise and tinker with the cooker at work until he eventually got his promotion.

And moving Zanra out of the house felt so nice after she fried to a crisp on her teen birthday in my last go. Not actually had any birthday cake fires this game although Sezzad had a butt fire when he autonomously started a metal sculpture after he could sculpt for free.

All the kids I had after Faon got future sim had holo phones automatically which surprised me.

This was fairly easy for a career, I set them both up with a comfy desk chair and a lot of space rocks to consume for energy and just kept them writing sports books for days on end, by now they had steel bladders, hardly hungry and dirt defiant so they can go for quite a while without needing much.

It's just the stress they get from constant writing that's the problem but a vial of bliss or a quick play on the foosball table, or even a woohoo in the all in one bathroom in the room sorted that out.

Once they hit young adult I bought Tirqua, Kalturn and Llorq the influence they needed for their careers with lifetime happiness points, and I left Nokat unemployed until I had moved some of the others out so I could do Daycare with less hassle.

This time we went back to Sezzad's place of birth Oasis Landing, for anybody who read my Life States Dynasty they might remember at the very end when it was over I sent my founders and their two daughters there, well daddy got abducted and Sezzad was the result, my only alien baby born outside of a dynasty attempt so the only one I've ever been able to keep.

No clones this time as we are at the end of the list of available jobs, last time I had to move out three kids in order to take the other three to Oasis Landing, this time I split my groups up differently so I could concentrate on just the three who need to go to the future.

Angler seemed like a good choice for this reproduction day as they could fish just as easily in the future as the past with no need of equipment.

And so we come full circle with the careers, this time Sezzad did alchemy and Faon gardening and it went a lot faster than the first time, mainly because I learnt the most efficient ways to maximise them the first time around.

The game is really messing with me at times, Ozuli was ready to go and so I moved out her BF Theresa Holmes in edit town went back to the game and had her use her phone to move only to find in the blink of an eye another townie living in it, grrrrr.

And not just a townie but a location merchant so no jar of friendship possible, instead I had to use the old fashioned method of talking to somebody, ridiculous!

But this Kendra lady had no interests to help move it along, she was dull as dishwater and once at work I couldn't interact with her so Ozuli spent the day spamming her with friendly text messages. By 10pm that night she was level 4 in social networking and had a new best friend, who she promptly kicked out of her home.

The hardest thing now is finding people to befriend, I just happened to spot the Police townie sitting in one of the parks so quickly sent them both there, luckily Chrissie Landgraab (not to be confused with Faon's previous BF Christa, her clone twin) walked past as well, she also got a fountain of youth so she wouldn't die before I had space in the house to try for baby again.

And this would be the last time as well.

Total Domination - Week 24 Day 4

The Final Week

Time for Faon & Sezzad to take it easyish, even though they had enough clones to take over Lunar Lakes completely now I wanted an insurance policy just in case something bad happened to one of the children, it happened last time leaving me one child short at the end so better safe than sorry.

They have so many maxed skills now any rabbit hole job would do but I wanted one quick to max so chose business. As for skill challenges there were a few they had not completed so that wasn't an issue.

But in the end it wasn't needed as everything went fine, biggest problem was trying to find the house occupants, I had my sims lurking outside their homes waiting for them to come home, sometimes all night nearly.

Last to move out was Zulrr as I just couldn't find Richard James and he never came home all night, eventually I found him in one of the parks reading a book so sent Zulrr there quickly before he vanished again, one jar of friendship later and a quick trip to edit town and we were done!

Total Domination Achieved  Week 24 Day 4 6:48am + 3 Future Days = 168 days



I honestly can't imagine doing this without alchemy and brain enhancing machines, it seems like it would take an eternity and by the end the bugs were starting to crop up, and at just 24 weeks in that's worrying.

My mailbox was bugged and the community lots I had upgraded were full of rotten burgers and hot dogs, but I will say Lunar Lakes has some advantages. As rabbit hole lots are so small there is no parking spaces so no abandoned cars everywhere, and I didn't get a single instance of lag due to a stuck sim so I guess the routing is pretty good too.

Things I learnt about aliens:

Getting them out of CAS with full alien dna is a lottery, sometimes they look alien but are human, other times they are alien but have human eyes, you just need patience and a lot of tries.

Never put your alien in a motive mobile as it messes them up, they get both brain power and a hidden energy bar that will suddenly surface several hours afterwards, I was so confused when they got the exhausted moodlet and needed to sleep (this was in a failed attempt).

In the same vain I chose to avoid anything else that restored energy such as elixirs or the moodlet manager in case it happened again. But they don't really need them if you stock up on space rocks as they can consume those to restore brain power, luckily for me there was two spawn spots at the back of my lot, one always a large rock, and even if they do need to restore brain power it seems to happen faster than normal sleep.

YES I had just heard about the Motive Mobile bug on Mod The Sims! But never really heard about it here on the guide. I would have thought that another dynasty would have uncovered it because it also affects plant sims and mermaids (basically anyone with a frozen custom motive)

Anyways congrats again, you're in the Hall of Fame, moving this to Completed Stories, you definitely know the drill by now. ;)
