Welcome to the World Adventures generation of my EP Legacy. I know that opinions are divided on World Adventures, but it’s one of my personal favourites. I love the nectar making and the relic collections, and of course the three beautiful vacation worlds. I even love the tombs, especially later on in the quest chains, when there are some really fun and satisfying designs (plus a few broken ones—this is The Sims 3, after all).
This time we’ll be following siblings Maria, Naoise, and Sara on their travels to Egypt, China, and France, as they fulfill their lifetime wishes to curate a ‘world class gallery’, become a ‘martial arts master’, and possess a ‘private museum’.
Maria is brave, adventurous, handy, and athletic, and has a photographer’s eye. Naoise is a loner, adventurous, disciplined, and loves the outdoors. I’ll also be giving him the angler trait, as there are a lot of fishing opportunities available in China. Sara has adventurous, snob, friendly, and lucky, plus green thumb once she ages up. Given a second chance, I might have replaced one of Sara’s with natural cook, as the Champs Les Sims adventures are almost as much about food as they are about nectar.
The family lives at where the Wolffs used to, a +30 beautiful vista lot with panoramic sea views. Their house is currently unfurnished, but will soon be filled with photos, relics, and other collectables.
First up, Egypt.
For the tombs, you’ll need dried food, a tent, and showers in a can from the market. While you’re there, I’d also recommend picking up the location-specific recipe books, a photography book, and a camera.
The first adventure in Al Simhara is always to explore the Tomb of Discovery. I’ll be posting solutions to the more complex tombs as I complete them, but this one is really just a tutorial. It shouldn’t take long to find the documents you’ve been asked for and get out of there.
If you’d like some relics for your collection but don’t fancy the tombs, there is the relics merchant in the market, and also various excavation sites throughout the world. At Visa Level 2, you’ll be able to purchase the Tear of Horus from the special merchant to help you find these more easily.
Whether your sims are digging up relics, pick-axing their way through piles of rubble or off hunting for turquoise, catching up on their podcasts is a great use of all the alone time they’ll get.
Nraas’ GoHere lets you turn car routing on/off for each world, which means your sims can drive around the World Adventures destinations if you like. It makes fetch quests go much faster.
And don’t forget to pick some plums and pomegranates to plant back home
After a couple more mini quests, Maria was ready to spend the final day of her trip relaxing at one of the campsites.
