Nix Short Dynasty

In the "Nix" of Time


Hey everyone! This challenge you'll find here is a version of the Short Dynasty written by cndneh on Carl's Forum. It's an interesting and difficult challenge I've taken on, but I find it to be quite a bit of fun. There's no real story or plot going on here, just me having fun, telling jokes, and dealing with sassy backtalk from my Sims as they go on crazy skilling and career paths.
If you're looking for more of a story with a plot, I highly recommend you pop on down to my Story Collection page and check out the stories I keep there! So without further ado, let's pop into the Nixes!

Note: I've actually made it to Chapter 80 already in this story, and I'm currently in the process of transferring it to this blog so I can continue it. Some of the writing you'll see (narrative that speaks to the readers) was intended for the forum it was originally put on. Sometimes I'll edit it, but in this case I'll leave a lot of it intact for general understanding.



Some information on my Short Dynasty: 
  • I will be using Store Content, as there are no rules against it.
  • I have a Story Progression Mod because marrying NPCs by my 3rd generation does not sound like my ideal playthrough.
  • I use game-fixing mods only in this file (like NRAAs Overwatch and Errortrap). 
  • I've turned off Seasons except for summer, which I've maxed in length.
  • All types of weather is off (rain, hail, fog, snow --- absolutely nothing!) 
  • I've placed a Consignment Store, Salon, Firestation, Elixir Store, Junkyard, Equestrian Center and Laundromat in Dragon Valley, but those are the only other lots I've placed.
  • I will reduce my funds to 1800 after getting the Future Portal (after I sell that and the camera). 

This is going to be crazy and fun, so join me on this journey!


My Additional Rules:
  • I will give myself an extra point (+1 point) for portraits of the founder and all successive heirs.
  • The heir is the first child to have rainbow skin.
