I’ve been watching these live drag stage productions of classic episodes from The Golden Girls on the SF Oasis YouTube channel. They are absolutely hilarious. They have also been doing Three’s Company, Buffy the Vampire Slayer (my absolute favorite) and other shows like Sex and the City.
While I was watching their latest episode of The Golden Girls, it occurred to me that perhaps there are Golden Girls characters and their house in The Sims 4, and so I looked and someone did make these characters and their house. I immediately downloaded them and started playing, but ran into a bit of a snag.
You see, the Golden Girls come as a family, and they only have §26,000 (Simoleons is their currency) and the house is worth §117,373. So, the only way I can afford the house is to either do the cheat, or work to get these characters’ careers up high enough that they can afford it. I don’t want to use any cheats because I am not quite sure if using a cheat will prevent me from receiving PS4 trophies or not. And also, I’m gonna have to do the work anyway, so I would prefer to get all these characters skills and jobs all the way up the normal way.
So here’s what I’m doing. I started playing them 1 at a time starting with Blanche Devereaux. She was hard to play because she is such a romantic and I didn’t want to just hook her up with anyone in the game, because I can remember she had a husband. I Googled him and his name was George and he was a lawyer. So I created George as an elder (since all the Golden Girls have been created as elders) and put him in the law career. Well, he’s already at the very top of his career and he has so many skills up already, so I’m going to stop playing him for now. Oh, and they have already started a relationship, so they are in love.
Now that George is finished for now, I’m going to go back to playing Blanche. I’ll continue working to get her career to the top as an artist. I know she worked in a museum, and they have museums in the game, but they only have museum curator as an aspiration, which means as an artist, Blanche can sell her paintings to museums, which I have been doing. So I think that is good enough. Once I get her career all the way to the top to where she can’t get any higher, I will continue working on their relationship so they get married and move in together so they can pool their combined money and income so I can hopefully buy the house.
Once I get the house with Blanche and George, I will make them both retire, and um… well, we all know George died and then Blanche had to rent rooms out to people. I found out that both Rose and Dorothy responded to the room for rent ad in the episode on IMDb called The Way We Met,
“The girls remember how they came to live together; Blanche put an ad for a room for rent on a grocery store bulletin board, and Rose and Dorothy answered it.”
So since I now know how they met, when I finish with Blanche and George, then I will get to work with Sophia, and considering I have no idea what she did for a living, knowing she became a chef in The Golden Palace when Golden Girls was over, I will put her to work in the food industry. Get her career up until she gets to the top, then retire her. I will include Dorothy in the family as her daughter, so I can work both characters at the same time, and do the same with career as a teacher. She was a substitute teacher, but I’m not going to make her retire from being a sub, I’m gonna make her go all the way to the top before I retire her. Then get to work on Rose. The only thing I know about Rose is that she worked some jobs in fast food, and they actually have that job available in The Sims 4, so I will put her in that industry and again, retire her.
Once all these characters have reached the top of their career and have retired, then I will be able to have fun playing them in the Golden Girls villa. I think it will be fun to play.
If you have The Sims 4 and you want to play these characters, you can do a search for them and their house, download them and then play them. I’m sure you will have a blast.
