Created for: The Sims 3

Ah, the simple life! Live in the park, fish and grow veggies for food and money! Sleep in a cardboard and newspaper shack, fully furnished with more newspaper and boxes. Catch fish in your very own pond and grow veggies in your little garden plot then cook everything oven an open fire.

I usually only play long enough to test my lots but I was having so much fun with this one that I couldn't drag myself away! Initially I had my Sim going to the gym or pool to shower but that got to be a bore so you'll find I've added a rusty old bath tub behind the shack. Feel free to sell it!

SPECIAL HUGE THANKS to Cyclonesue for all her help!

HINT: Just in case you haven't discovered it yet... Sims can cook just about any food that's in their inventory over the portable grill that's part of this lot. Have them light the fire then click again and choose roast something.

I LOVE IT!!  What a wonderful lot!  Sadly, not all the newspaper and cardboard walls downloaded with the lot. I found some of them in your patterns, but not all.

ps. if you want a really ugly homeless looking bed open the cheats bar type in testingchetasenabled true, enter the type in buydebug and in the second filter there should be a new box in there is a bed mad out of literal cardboard.

OK, but you can be homeless WITH style if you just use the "Dumpster Dive" interaction on MOST dumpsters (the ones on the "Grady's Junkyard" lot auto added by Ambitions are purely decorative.) The "Rummage" interaction that is available on garbage cans on occupied residential lots isn't as reliable a "goodie-grabber" but things that you CAN find are incredible (tiberium & woohooium anyone?) You can buy a sleeping bag if you have Generations installed and running ($100 and fulfills the "Buy a Bed" wish) and tents if you travel to one of the World Adventures destinations (not sure about placing those on community lots on "Homeworlds" but a 20 x 30 without a "view" is only 1,200. There are "auto-soil" plants growing all over the various worlds some of which are already harvestable on the first day of a new game, and many worlds have community gardens that I have never seen a townie or other NPC harvest. The auto-soils are located on on both community and residential lots in every town I've tried, and the only reaction I've ever had from anyone about harvesting on their lot is to INVITE ME INSIDE! Traits- "Mooch" if you want to beg, Kleptomanic" if you want to steal, and "Loves the Outdoors" either way. Life Time Rewards- "Inappropriate but in a Good Way" If you REALLY want to play it real don't get a full time job until you've gotten a nice little house with all the furnishings built because most of them want you to do nothing BUT work when you first start out, and you have dumpsters to dive in and apples trees in the park to harvest. So take my advice- run around for a couple of weeks even if you have a lot to go to. Spend your time collecting and harvesting stuff, fulfilling wishes, building up skills, and collecting Life Time Happiness points and buying rewards that will help you in your "dream job." Your Sim will go from being homeless to being a big-time success in NO TIME. I'm doing exactly this right now with a Sim I intend to be a Legacy Family Founder, and I've never had a happier Sim! Why wouldn't he be? He does whatever the he wants all the time and fulfills just about every wish that he promises. If he thinks he should buy an easel or an telescope or a gemcutter he does it (never buys a washing machine or dryer though, go figure.) So go out, have fun, keep your mood up, decorate your lot, build a really nice "finished" foundation with a basement under it (both are REALLY CHEAP and add very little to your bills!). You'll be amazed how sweet life can be when your foot-loose and fancy-free!
