IllusoryThrall’s Sims 3 & 4 blog Home Page

Hello!  You’ve found my sims 3 & 4 blog.  I’m known as IllusoryThrall on Sims 3/4 Forums, and Wyldhawke on modthesims.com and on Origin.  Feel free to send me a friends request on any or all of those. I’ll be using this site for blogging on my Sims 3 & 4 Challenge games.  Challenge games are just that – games I’ve started for any Challenge I’ve either come up with or found that I want to try.  I’m going to TRY to not have too many active at any one time, and most will probably have a story to go with them.  I haven’t tried blogging challenge stories before for Sims 2 (and back in Sims 1 I didn’t even KNOW about Challenges – I mostly built and fiddled around in the game.. hehe) – so this should be interesting.  You’ll all have to bear with me as I practice stretching creative muscles I haven’t used for a while..  *grin*

Not Blogged:

  • Mystery Mansion Challenge

“On Hiatus” Challenges (Updated 6/24/19)

  • Build-a-Pack Challenge (Sims 4 Build challenge)
  • A Sims 4 Alphabetcy (Random Legacy to 26 generations) – Not blogging this one, currently on generation 3.
  • Settlers Challenge (Sims 4)
  • The Travelers” – a Sims 4 Drifter challenge with a game-driven story. – On Hiatus
  • Spectres of the Past” (NiF/Apocalypse – Sims 3) – On Hiatus – My second favorite challenge from a story point of view. (First favorite is my retired challenge, Falconvale.) This is the one that my family thinks of when they think of my Sims blogging. Very much a story driven challenge – it stalled due to the game not working quite the way I wanted it to. i.e. A “random chance” happening when it was supposed to (or happening at all, really.) I finally resolved that issue and it is just now coming back into my writing cycle.
  • Falcon Apocalypse” Challenge (Sims 3) – On Hiatus – Yeah, I know, this one should probably have a better name.. but I never came up with one, but this is what I’ve been calling it, so the name stuck. The family name is “Falcon”, and it’s a straight-up Sims 3 Apocalypse challenge, so that’s where the name came from. Just restarted this one, and am blogging a story to go with it (Game-driven story).
  • Castaway Shores” NiF Challenge  (Sims 3) – On Hiatus – This is an old challenge I just got working again… so I’m really looking forward to playing it some more again. I’ve been missing the “NiF” challenges for such a long time, and the whole idea of doing one in the Island Paradise world as a castaway was too much to resist. (Game-driven story)

Past Challenges (Updated On 2/5/20)

  • Apartment Switch Testing Phases – “Normal” and “Extreme” difficulty
  • Thrall’s Drifter(Retired) My old Sims 4 Drifter Challenge – blogged commentary style. Decided to restart my Drifter after my hiatus from Sims and not wanting to sort through screenshots taken over a year previously and try to figure out where exactly I was.
