Drifter Overview

It started off with a single challenge, the Drifter Challenge by Vihisha. And then an Apartment Switch spin-off by IllusoryThrall. And then Pinstar’s alien adoption challenge and then it just spiraled out of control. Just what is what and how are they all connected? You could check out the Drifter Family tree although there will be spoilers as it’s up to date with my game, not necessarily my published stories.

Drifters Generations 1-3

The first three generations are picture book style of their lives.


Drifters Generation 4

With Taylor Drifter though, I was inspired and the Drifter world started to come to light.  Taylor kept a journal of her early life and her explorations into Sixam.


Drifters Generation 5

Taylor had twins and both of them got to build the house for gen 5. It was fun having two families in the same household.


It was here that the story starts to split. (Or rather I learned about the Switch challenge and really loved Aubrey’s little brother).

Drifters Generation 6

Aubrey Drifter and her best friend from high school were charged with building the mansion. (Again I got to have two families in one house.)

  • Aubrey & Lorna Pt1
  • Aubrey & Lorna Pt2
  • Aubrey & Lorna Pt3
  • Aubrey & Lorna Pt4
  • Aubrey & Lorna Pt5
  • Aubrey & Lorna Pt6
  • Aubrey & Lorna Pt7
  • Aubrey & Lorna Pt8
  • Aubrey & Lorna Pt9

Phoenix Drifter, Aubrey’s little brother headed to San Myshuno to try the Switch challenge and fell for one of my favorite sims, Rez.


Drifters Generation 7

Blaze Jang was Lorna’s eldest son, but he’s not technically a Drifter. Instead, he accepted a young alien child to raise. In addition, Penelope Pigglewiggle (Gen 7 Pigglewiggle) has moved to my Drifter save.


Skye Drifter continues to family Drifter challenge in house 007 starting off with a bachelor challenge to find out who will be his spouse.

  1. House Party 1 (Introduction)
  2. House Party 2
  3. House Party 3
  4. House Party 4
  5. House Party 5
  6. Skye Drifter  (Family life)

Feng Drifter, daughter of Phoenix and Rez continued our Switch challenge number 2.


Feather Drifter, one of the late-life triplets from Phoenix and Rez has her own story exploring Selvadorada.


Drifters Generation 8

University! Is a one-shot that follows Feng’s daughter Tracey and Skye’s daughter Emery as they head off to University and are our first Drifters to graduate from uni. Both get their own story afterwards so this is a good introduction for both the Drifter Gen 8 and Switch Gen 3 stories. This one shot also includes the following builds.

  • Foxbury Student Center Reno – Larry’s Lagoon
  • Library Reno – Lord Laurel’s Library
  • Pub Reno – Salt n’ Pepper Pub
  • Foxbury Dorm Reno – Briny Tower A

Emery Drifter – starting out in Willow Creek in the wintertime make this our roughest start ever. She’s going to be adopting children and dogs all the while she’s building her house.


Tracey Drifter – after meeting her future spouse in college, Tracey continues our switch challenge. We’re reaching our half-way mark on this challenge.

Switch 3 Tracey

Cousins at University another one shot that introduces us to Jairo Drifter (Feather’s son) and his cousin Ellen (Rex’s daughter) as they attend Britechester and introduce us to their lives (as they will each have their own story going forward. Sulani Commune and whatever I call Ellen’s experiences in Mt. Komorebi).

Jairo Drifter – although he grew up in Selvadorada helping his mother investigate the temples, he always knew he wanted to move to Sulani and live a casual beach life. Once he graduated he build a small shack and starting inviting his friends to join him.


Ellen Drifter – grew up in Mt. Komorebi and loves all things snow and adventure. After graduating, she’s moved to a small house near her parents and will be continuing her quest to scale all the mountains.

Drifters Generation 9

Once again when the game looks for a two-sim start, we have twins to play with! Charlie and Frankie Drifter are twice the challenge and twice the mischief and will be completing the Gen 9 drifter challenge.

  • Gameplay starting soon.

Chris Drifter – Chris is the second child of Tracey and Juliet – but her older sister was adopted by Tracey so she’s not a direct descendant. She’s doing the gen 4 switch challenge.

  • Gamplay starting soon.

Kade Jang O’Sim – remember Blaze Jang and his alien son Leon (Children of the Stars)? Leon has two children of his own that were raised by a family friend, Georgia O’Sim. Kade inherited magic from his mother and moved out to the country to try his hand at raising chickens, llamas, and befriending rabbits when he grew up.

  • Gameplay in progress

Roy Jang O’Sim – Kade’s little brother Roy and his friends tackled the strangerville mystery. This is a proper story and not commentary screenshots.
