Continuing my exploration of the Into the Future EP, I’m enjoying it more now than when it was released.
To activate the Dystopian Future, my Sim completed these tasks in the present time for Emit Relevart:
Use the Meteor Magnet 3 times outside. Your Sim gets to keep the magnet and they can use it in any world. Lisa attracted metals, including Carbon Steel and Titanium (they were added to her inventory).
Attend a Doomsayers Meeting at City Hall.
Convince 6 Sims that The Sky is Falling.
Trash Talk the Environment to 6 Sims. Sims with certain traits, like neat, will have a negative response.
Emit appeared to Chat about Cause and Effect, the Dystopian Future is now active.
Soon after Lisa arrived in the Dystopian Future, she visited Legacy Park to check out her newest statue, The Renowned Philanthropist. When your Sim has their name on a Legacy Statue, they have a +15 moodlet for each statue the entire time that they are in Oasis Landing. The statues take on the appearance of your Sim.
While exploring Geyser Rifts, Sims can return to the surface with found metals and gems, they can even return with a case of the giggles.
Small, stinking piles of trash around town give Sims a -5 Disgusted moodlet when they come close to them. The larger piles of trash are better-Sims can rummage and find things, they can jump in the trash pile, and play with trash. Jumping in the trash pile and playing in it increases Fun. If your Sim has a Nanite in their inventory, the option to ‘Clean With Nanites’ is available when you click on a trash pile. Toss the Nanite and trash-be-gone.
Hoping for, but not getting any meteor or lightning strikes to the ground, Lisa goes to the Barren Wasteland to use her magnet. It only attracted metals. Excavate a bit and move on.
Lisa visited Legacy Park again to pay homage to the Master Controller, Twallan. Then she flew around for a bit, then a bit more.
A burglar showed up but the alarm notified the police, and the burglar got away, with nothing. The police and paper boy/girl in Oasis Landing wear regular outfits that came with Into the Future.
Lisa was asked by several Sims for her autograph, she’s not a celebrity and I have them disabled. She’s unemployed and not at a high level in a popular career. It has to be because her name is on Legacy Statues. The Trendsetter continues to set the trends in OL.
Finding 5 different Llamas gives you the opportunity to assemble them to get a Mech Gnome. The Llamas can be found inside the Crash Site and by rummaging in trash piles.
Lisa accepted a wish to Soak in a Hot Spring. The wish image makes it appear that the hot springs are inside rifts, and the description reads: “Meteors may blast holes in the planet, but those fissures offer some great bathing. Your Sim wants to soak in a Hot Spring.” I don’t know how much time I wasted searching around Oasis Landing looking for those damned Hot Springs. The only ones Sims can soak (swim) in are in the areas where they can swim, excluding swimming pools. That would be the large waterway in the ‘downtown’ area, and the pond near the Wasteland Zephyr Stop.
I watched for the signs of Hot Springs in the pond and after not seeing them, I decided to have my Sim swim around anyway. She completed the wish and got a +30 moodlet ‘Nature’s Hot Tub: The warmth of a natural hot spring sends Lisa into a state of profound relaxation, enhancing her mood.’
Screens: What the hot springs look like, and where in the pond my Sim completed the wish (that’s her house across the street from the zephyr stop, in the background on the right).
There’s more than one way to achieve the ability to Reset the Time Continuum from the Time Portal, reaching Level 10 in Advanced Technology is one of them.
Picture spam, because it’s so Dystopian.
