This story was initially revealed in July of 2018.
Final I checked in with the Sims 4 model of myself, I was attempting to create a pink panda by breeding cats and raccoons with their very personal grandparents, which left me with six cuddly abominations of nature. I assume they turned out cute ample, nonetheless I primarily now persist with a half-dozen filthy, chittering multicolored raccoons that I do not know what to do with (furthermore, one canine). As I load up that saved sport, the seashore I used to be standing on with my noisy, mutated pets is now lined with snow. I am trying out the Sims 4: Seasons enlargement, which provides spring, summer time season, fall, and winter, together with new native climate, actions, and holidays.
I frolic contained in the snow a bit, organising a snowman as my soiled pets screech and chitter shut by, till I alter into so chilly I seem like a white walker from Recreation of Thrones. I am heading as soon as extra to my tiny hovel to heat up after I spot any particular person strolling by.
A person named Clement Frost is strolling by the neighborhood. He is bought an unlimited white (appropriately, grey) beard and gold-rimmed spectacles, he is a bit on the portly aspect, and he is decked out in winter-themed robes and a hat. ‘Winterfest’, the Sims’ model of Christmas, is just a few days away. Fully, this Clement Frost character is only a barely disguised Santa (or Father Winter, because of the Sims 4 calls him).
As I watch Clement gad about, I begin questioning: what occurs if I get to know him? Is he really Father “Santa” Winter? What if I date him and change in with him? Will he take me and my stinking raccoons with him when he spreads Winterfest cheer contained in the neighborhood?
I rush over and begin speaking to Clement. He would not appear to know it, presumably on account of he is presently chatting up a enticing redhead and I am completely blowing up his spot. Sorry, Santa, there are necessary scientific fake-Christmas questions that should be answered.
Clement and I shortly get to know one another, largely on account of me insisting we solely talk about vampires. Santa is so receptive to speaking about vampires that I begin suspecting he is extra more likely to be one. It is smart: he is immortal, he works at at night time, he has enhanced velocity and power, he instructions animals and has a loyal coven of enthralled minions—perhaps the one operate he drinks milk is on account of nobody has been considerate ample to go away out a glass of blood collectively collectively along with his cookies on Christmas Eve.
Lastly, Clement begins to love me, and I am going to lure him to my tiny hovel, which is quickly filling with raccoon pee. After some gentle flirting on the sofa, I’ve wooed him ample to ask him to maneuver in with me, or further ideally, for me to maneuver in with him. His residence maybe would not embody as somewhat lots animal urine as mine does, moreover he lets his reindeer on the furnishings. Sadly, there’s an issue.
Regardless that it gave the impression to be an threat, the sport shouldn’t be going to let me change in with Santa. It lists him as ‘At present Not In World’ (one totally different clue he’s an immortal blood-drinking Elflord) and irrespective of how I put collectively the file of characters and varied raccoons contained in the merge containers I can’t persist with him. That is disappointing, nonetheless I do ultimately uncover I can add my cabal of smelly vermin to his family, which might potential be a rattling help to me personally. I furthermore uncover I can assign Santa to stay in my hovel, whereas I take over a somewhat lots higher residence.
Will it spoil Christmas if I make Santa hold in my tiny residence with my rubbish animals? I am wanting to take that menace, even when it isn’t the distinctive query I purchased proper all the way down to reply. There’s one totally different twist, although, as after I swap properties and pets I am shocked to look out that I can actually take over having enjoyable with as Clement. So now I’ve one totally different query: if I am Santa, what is going to occur on Christ-Winterfest-Mas?
As Santa, I try to settle into this new and miserable life-style, the place rubbish and raccoon pee pile up and the place I can’t sleep for various minutes before some chittering creature jumps on the mattress and disturbs me. Santa appears a bit blue about these new developments, so I establish the one pal I’ve, which is sadly me, Chris, the very Sim who pressured Santa to stay in a shack and dumped a bunch of unwashed, unloved pets in his ample lap.
The one time Santa and Chris appear to get alongside is as quickly as they’re trying to comprehend with one another, so I proceed down that path. I admit it is significantly odd, having enjoyable with as Santa and trying to bang myself, nonetheless even after getting undressed and into mattress we solely wind up bickering. We attempt occurring a date that night time time to clean factors over, nonetheless your complete smelly raccoons present up on the restaurant with us. Santa and Chris have an argument contained in the parking lot—I actually really feel I can guess the subject—and Chris storms off.
With Winterfest in the end away, I take Santa as soon as extra residence and enhance the hovel with vibrant banners, a tree, and some small stacks of presents. Lots of of the raccoons have glowing crimson toes, which feels good and festive till I understand it is actually the tip final result some kind of horrible foot an an an infection they’ve contracted. Chris visits for the vacation, thoughtfully bringing with him a bag of trash that he dumps on the doorway porch. In return I give him a Winterfest present of a ham and cheese sandwich, which he recoils from before laughing in my face.
It is truly an beautiful, magical, and really romantic Winterfest. Please revenue from the vacation spirit contained in the video under.
After the present change, quite a few naps, and the standard aimless carrying of plates of meals from one room to a definite, I lastly uncover what occurs whenever you take over one Santa’s life: The Sims 4 merely dispatches one totally different.
Some man named Hobart Lentz reveals up that night time time, carrying the same outfit as Clement, adorned with the title of Father Winter. Lentz begins dumping stacks of presents subsequent to the row of litter containers inside the lounge.
As Santa, I truly actually really feel usurped by this Lentz character, to not degree out depressed on the state of my filthy residence, the gathering of diseased pets I under no circumstances requested for, and what often is the worst greatest pal in historic earlier. It is go-time. I draw back new fake-Santa to a brawl. You’ll be able to watch the holidopplegangers go at it contained in the video under.
To his credit score rating ranking, even when Lentz would not like me, he nonetheless hangs spherical after the prolonged battle, elements some jolly ho-ho-hos, lets me open presents, and even performs with the raccoons a bit before disappearing in a puff of journey smoke.
That is the carefree, magical life I’d want had, if solely I would under no circumstances met that bastard Chris. I depart the raccoons to gibber of their very private filth, go exterior, and make quite a few snow angels. Merry Winterfest.
