Dawnmist: Sims 2 Challenges

University, Round 5 – Part 2

When Aiden met the Cheerleader again, I realised that he now had a 3-bolt relationship with the cheerleader. Given his lack of niceness, and his past history of sleeping around, I figured he’d have no compunctions changing his partner from Mattie O’Brien to Kerry Austin – and having had “experience”, he wasn’t likely to settle for second-best.

Mattie O’Brien was funny – Kerry had been living in the house for 2 (of Aiden’s) semesters before she actually realised that Kerry and Aiden were sleeping together.

I gave up with this lot and installed TwoJeff’s College Adjuster mod so that I could fast-track semesters. Kerry had been cheerleading when David Pollard went to college – it didn’t seem right for her to be 4 semesters behind Aiden & the rest. She caught up her first 3 semesters in 2 very intense sim days, and then stayed 1 semester behind the others to ease the transition from the current Greek House residents to the new members. She got her skill points entirely from Eggplant Juice – I think there’s still roughly 250 unused eggplant fruits (are they called fruits?) left on the lot at the moment. All remaining garden produce was transfered to sims that were staying in the house before other sims moved out. Being able to shorten semesters made the game a lot less tedious – I was able to finish the Greek House in a single play sitting (admittedly, it still took 15 hours!). They all still had to earn all their school progress/points/etc.

Lots of badge & hobby progress, all sims completing University this round finished with Big Sim on Campus, Maxed all Skills, Greek House membership, Secret Society membership, and with full 4.0 Summa Cum Laude marks. Kerry managed to achieve her Lifetime Want during her fast-tracked Uni (for 20 Simultaneous Best Friends).

Aiden Starke got engaged to Kerry Austin (3 bolts), Mattie O’Brien to a garden-club townie (3 bolts) – she’s been played in the Greek House WITH playables in Uni so if I’ve read the rules right she can be a full Hollyshore member in her own house now, Eva Pollard to Archie Brady (2 bolts – and I’m already groaning at “the Brady Bunch”), and Lilly Pollard to her teen sweetheart Clint Hopkins who has been waiting for her to grow up (3 bolts).

The weather on the Greek House lot is still set to “fine”, and will remain so. Seasons are changing normally (set to alternate between Autumn and Spring), it’s just the plant-drowning rain that’s being avoided (see University Round 04 for the reasons why I activated this).
