My Zoe lives on the far side of the bridge out of Pleasantview, with a dead tree. I haven't given her any things yet, there's nothing that looks useful. She goes to the park and works as a barista, and eats hot dogs, and plays chess.
I made it easier by giving her a personality suited to this. She's active so she doesn't need much sleep, and she's extremely shy so she doesn't suffer when she doesn't get much social contact. She's serious so chess is all the fun she needs.
I can see this getting repetitive -- she goes back to the lot and sleeps until she's got about 1/3 of her energy, then gets up and goes to the park, then goes back and sleeps, etc. She can fill all her needs except sleep, so the shifts are short, but otherwise it's just another working day. Think I need to shake it up somehow.
If you have FreeTime, the Gypsy who runs the dating service will sometimes deliver a magic lamp, but I`d be seriously surprised if she`d deliver one to a Homeless Challenge Sim before the challange is over, as her delivery-message claims that you have to have trod the paths of excelence and done lots of hard work, or something like that, to be worthy of the lamp, and if you meet those criteria, you`d have already won the chalange.

Pile of books (one space), Folding Chair (one space), Leaf Mat (two spaces) and Easel (one space).
All the NL Clubs and Parks. lol.
I became lazy and took only four pictures. Nothing much is happening in game even after hours of playing. My simmy just managed to skill build and make two friends. It's still a struggle to earn money. :3

The Food Stealing Challenge
Since this glitch is hilarious, I decided to make a challenge for it.
The waiter comes along... and a Townie is served! But little does she know... a food stealer is in the way! Right when the delicious food is put on the table, you lunge for it! Stealing the burger under the Townie's unsuspecting nose, you eat it, and don't have to pay for it!
Start by making a character. Name him/her anything you want, any aspiration, your choice of appearance. Now, DO NOT make a house. Then make a Restaurant, or use a Downtown one. Make sure it has a TOILET, a SHOWER, and something, like a TV, to have FUN. Go to that lot, and start stealing food.
No rules except for cheating. No cheating, exception of decoration and energy ups with boolprop. Also, don't become a vampire.
While you are playing, tally the number of food steals you did.
When your Sim BECOMES an elder, count your tallies.
At least 1 food steal is 1 point.
At least 15 food steals is 25 points.
At least 25 food steals is 100 points.
At least 50 food steals is 200 points.
At least 75 is 400 points.
At least 100 is 700 points.
Every next hundred Food Steals is 1,000 points.
Every Woohoo is 1000 points.
Each time your Sim goes into Platinum is 200 points
Each time your Sim goes into Red is -200 points.
Each time your Sim has a baby, 1000 points.
Twins and/or more, 2000 points.
If a kid is taken away by the Social Worker, -200 points.
If your Sim gets engaged, 100 points
Married, 1000 points
If your Sim cheats, 100 points
Caught, -100 points
Breaks up, -1000 points.
Marry the Diva or Mr. Big, 1000 points
Each time you become a different lifeform (besides vampire) 100 points.
Each time you pay for food, -1000 points.
If your Sim dies, -10000 points.
If you have the same number of Simoleans you started out with, EXCEPTION OF bills and Nanny, +10,000 points!
The game ends when your Sim dies or becomes an Elder
Remember, when counting your score, each Food Steal "checkpoint" IS another ___ point.
Does this sound fun?
Call me Isobel
*hates recorders, no-touch-the-baby mommies, and lost dice"
Hmm... I might try this in a little bit, probably with the child of my current teenager, but I can't promise I won't throw a few kids in.
Seeing as I don't have Pets, I think it'd be a fair substitute lol
I'll just have to install a floor blanket!
Also, would a 'adventuror style outdoor bed' be consider acceptable?
It's sort of a little matress with a tarp over it and, seeing as I'm going to design the place like a garbage dump, I don't think it'd be /that/ noticable, but I guess I should check.
I can't wait to start!
I'm doing this one again, I failed the first time.
My hobo, George Dert:
He lives in a default Downtown attached to Pleasantview. Amazingly enough, even though he has NO Creativity points, he went to the park and freestyled for tips (as you can see in the photo) and almost instantly drew a crowd! Mary-Sue Pleasant is just one of his fans :D
I was also amazed at how much money one can make doing irregular shifts as a barista. I made just enough cash to buy George a folding lounge chair to sleep in, and I've got in doing nature hobby activities (hunting bugs, bidwatching) to get him into Peerless Park so he can fish in the huge pond they have.
(Trying to get into the challenge; so far everything looks alright)
Pouring cup of espresso helps to keep the Sim's energy(though he/she will need to go to toilet afterwards). My sim prefers to go to Moo's Mews-Coffee rather than sleeping on ground. There, he can enjoy free espresso, talking to some people, and he can play the piano for tips.
Haven't tried this challenge yet, but I played a family in Sims 1 homeless style & it was great fun. I downloaded all the characters from CSI Miami & bought them a plot of land but didn't build a house on it. They cooked over a campfire & slept outside ... it was too funny to see them flirt with everyone who walked by, just on the off-chance of maybe starting a relationship with someone who lived indoors.
