December 2013 Sim of the Month - Fred Fernberger


 Fred Fernberger
Sim of the Month: December 2013
-------------------------------------------------------

(NOTE:  If you have never done a Sim of the Month Challenge before and would like to know more, you can find more information on the Sim of the Month Challenge Page.)

Fred Fernberger was never what you would call a "Normal" person. A day dreamer, Fred has always had difficulty remaining grounded in reality. To him, life should be a fairy tale, with happy endings for everybody. Unfortunately for Fred, life isn't a fairy tale and up until now, his own life did not look like it was headed for a happy ending. 

A lonely man, Fred dreamed one day of settling down with a loving companion and a loyal pet. The typical dream for a man tired of living the bachelor lifestyle. Fred's problem, however, was that he carried his fairytale mentality with him into the dating scene. Fred's self-proclaimed "Noble" advances were met with rejection after soul-crushing rejection. The last straw was at Thanksgiving when his mother nagged him for the 7th year in a row, "Fred, normal people do not think the way you do! If you are ever going to make any friends or settle down, there must be a change!" 

For the first time, Fred agreed with his mother. He would make a major change to his behavoir to improve the outlook of his social life. Did he tone down his fantastic outlook and stop treating everything like a fairy tale story? 

HECK NO! 

His change was simply to give up on his fellow humans completely and seek the company of the supernatural beings that made their home in his beloved fairy tales. 

Instructions

  1. Download Fred Fernberger here:    http://www.thesims3.com/assetDetail.html?assetId=7831771
  2. Import him into any home or empty lot he can afford. It can be pre-furnished if you want. The only thing you can't do is merge him into an existing household. 
  3. Attempt to achieve the goals in the fewest days possible. Your score is the number of days it takes you, with a lower score being better! 
Game Versions Needed:

  1. Sims 3 Base Game
  2. Sims 3 Pets (to get the Unicorn)

Goals
  1. Fred must marry a non-human. This can be ANY supernatural type including aliens, ghosts, robots among many others. They may be male or female. 
  2. Fred must fulfill his lifetime wish: adopt a unicorn and have them join the household. 
When both of these conditions are fulfilled, the challenge is complete.
