Story Box Uitdaging - December 2020

Story Box - December 2020

The Story Box Challenge is one where we give you a family and their stuff. Your task: build them a nice home.

The Household

Satsuki WatanabeSatsuki Watanabe is recovering from really rough time in her life. She and her ex recently decided to go their separate ways. Their belonings have been divided and their old home has been sold. Time for something new! On the outside she is looking hopeful, but on the inside there is a lot of anxiety. The holidays are coming up soon and it looks like it will be a lonely time for Satsuki.

She isn't used to this alone time at all. In recent years she has always had people around her. Even before her last relationship she would always have company during Christmas dinner, at the very least with a fling. Satsuki is a romantic after all, so she is never single for long. She even thought she'd found the one in her ex, but that was not the case in the end.

Now she is looking for a new, cosy home to spend the holidays in, with hopefully a new love, or at the very least a fling. Satsuki loves the cook and she would like to have a kitchen to prepare Christmas dinner for the potentional soul mate. She truly is a foodie, so her cooking skills are not going to be a problem in all of this. Satsuki is clumsy though, so she should be careful not to include any eggshells in her cooking, that she doesn't use salt when she's supposed to use sugar, and that she doesn't trip over her freshly baked cookies.

Can you help her to a cosy, warm and festive home? And who knows, find her a partner?



The Challenge

Story Box December 2020 - Kamer

  1. From the Sims 4 Gallery, download the Watanabe Family and the SNW Story Box 9 - 1220 room. You can also find them by EA ID RosieSoCosy.
  2. Pick any empty lot in any world, and move in the family. Enter the lot (in live mode!) and pause the game.
  3. Enter the cheat (Ctrl+Shift+C) 'money 120000' to set the family's budget (that's §120k).
  4. Now place the SNW Story Box 9 - 1220 room from the gallery. You'll lose roughly §11k, leaving you with somewhere around §109k to complete the challenge.
  5. Start building!
  6. Make sure to use all the family's items. They don't want anything to go missing! (yes, even the weird stuff)
  7. Upload the lot to the gallery before December 13th. Make sure to use hashtags #SNWStoryBox and #StoryBox1220 so we can find your entry!


The Rules

This challenge is about building the family a nice home. Feel free to use the household to continue their story - but we will focus on the homes that you come up with. The following rules apply:

  • The total budget, excluding the empty lot but including the required items, is limited to §120,000. Remember to first place the family in an empty lot, then place the room inside it.
  • You're free to pick ANY lot in ANY world, no matter how large or small. The box is a room, which fits on the smallest lot. 
  • You can use all expansion, game or stuff packs that you own. This is not required though, and you're free to even stick to just base game stuff. To match the story - providing the family with a comfortable home for the holidays - we recommend using the City Living and Snowy Escape packs.
  • NO custom content, except if it's from SNW (
  • ALL items in the box must be used, including those on the wall and ceiling. The items must also remain accessible. Wallpapers and floor tiles are not required.
  • Duplicating items or adding more stuff IS allowed. Removing items which were originally in the basement is NOT allowed.
  • Changing the colors/design/size of an item in the room is NOT allowed.
  • Don't forget to name your lot.
  • Entries must be uploaded to the Sims 4 gallery using both hashtags #SNWstorybox and #StoryBox1220.
  • Deadline: December 13th, 2020.

Questions? Get in touch through Discord, Twitter or Facebook!

We'll showcase the entries in a Twitch live stream at on December 21st, 21:30 CET. Missed the showcase? The VOD will be available on Twitch after the stream has ended, and we'll also upload the full video to the RosieSoStreamy channel on YouTube.

Thanks, and have fun!
