Last time, we came back from a five month hiatus to a new town (Roaring Heights), a new house and not much else. There were some fails and we lost Berry too. Oh and the toddlers were about to have a birthday.
But, this is all you get.
I got bored waiting for PB to take her out of the crib and went to watch the others.
So, I came back a few HOURS later, and PB is still in front of the crib and now Ivy is about to end up in the system. With PB stuck there, I can’t do anything. I gave Wintergreen his makeover (violet) and made PB active. It turns out that he queues up to remove her, but drops it. I noticed that everyone in the house was doing the same.
A quick reset and we find her still about dead, but ready for a birthday. In the back, Tutti is letting me know she is in the mood to fail.
Wintergreen: Eww. Hurry and have your birthday so you can bathe yourself.
She was already insane? Was she born with it? Omg. I can’t remember and she would be the heiress automatically. I’m sure I would have documented that. Right?
Wintergreen: You better not pee on me.
Wintergreen is happy that Tamarind is not going to pee on his feet.
Ivy Berry is still in the red. Her social is tanked because I thought she was trapped by her IF and deleted it.
Moonie was off doing an opportunity and rolled this.
Since she had an open space, it had to be done. Later, kid.
Tutti: I hope she leaves soon, she smells bad.
Boysenberry is buzzed on coffee and decided to workout. I don’t allow coffeemakers, so now I have to hunt that down.
I swear to God. You both better just go.
Thistle: Race ya!
Thistle: I win!
Tamarind: Fail! (-5)
I said yes, of course.
Dammit. I stole Wintergreen’s IF and gave it to her.
The date never happened. I guess Boysenberry finally crashed from the coffee. (-5)
Moonie actually completes a sculpture.
Ivy is now socially green.
At least she was on her way to bed. I think. (-5)
In just a few minutes, sculpting will be maxed! Yes!
Wintergreen: I want a bedtime story.
Boysenberry: Sure, who cares that I’m about to pass out. Again.
I realized I hadn’t seen PB in a while. I found him out in the garden yelling at the fence.
Moonie: Look guys! No skill bar!
Tutti Fruitti and the magical pee puddle. (-5)
Omg. Really? (-5) Oh and she reset herself and we paid for her not to go to boarding school.
*Emergency heir poll happens now*
Also, I played with building them a new house while the voting took place. Then I went full steam and recolored in Moonie’s favorite color. That took FOREVER.
During the renovation, Jam has his elder birthday. I totally failed at finding him a mate. I will have to hurry up and do that soon.
Moonie enjoys her first meal in her lilac and overly purple kitchen.
Umber is the first ghost to find the new mausoleum area.
They were like locusts swooping in to devour a plate of PB&J. Moonie had barely finished hers when they seemed to scent it from the upper floor.
PB: Haha. I got the last sandwich!
Jade: I’m too tired to make more food.
Eggplant: Boohoo! We got a new coffee table.
PB: Why is everything in this damn house purple! I hate it!
Lefty: *whisper whisper whisper*
Tamarind: What do you mean I lost the heir poll? I was in the lead for almost 17 hours!
Tamarind may have lost the heir poll, but he did get a pretty green room that will only be around for four more days.
Likewise, Tutti gets a pink room.
There is a nursery, but with no babies, there is no reason to do anything there.
Ivy and Wintergreen get a horrifying mix of aqua and violet. They will advance to their own rooms when they hit teen since both Tutti and Tamarind will be moving out that same day.
Eggplant’s Irish Green fits in well with the multiple shades of purple Moonie loves.
Top floor. There is nothing up here to interest the family except the BBQ area and the bedrooms.
The main floor has two bathrooms, laundry area, kitchen and dining, computer lab, living room and a gym/music room.
The basement has the mausoleum (with visitors!), a skilling area and a cat lounge. In the upper left is Jade and PB’s apartment. It is a replica area of Firestar’s house (that they just moved from), but added another bedroom to it. There is also another bathroom and a couple of all in one’s near the skilling area.
That apartment, the patio furniture and the playground equipment still need to be recolored. The most important aspect is that they went from a 50×50 lot down to a 30×30.
The sparsely furnished “apartment” is green (PB) and white (Jade). The door is locked to adults only because I had 10 sims try to crowd in there to watch that tiny tv. Speaking of adults…
We see Jade and Eggplant not very happy in the entryway. Neither one has anything in their queue, so I missed whatever transpired.
Back to the house tour. The house is a bit more modern outside than in. I may remember to get a nice pic during the day.
With the house done, it’s time to get back to the family. Moonie is already doing laundry. I use Nona’s mod so that it collects in one hamper (and picks the clothes off the floor hourly), what a lifesaver.
Tutti is doing the unthinkable while Boysenberry is just standing there, staring out the window.
Outside that window is Thistle and Tamarind. Wintergreen is over yonder and I think they are all commenting on the new flowers.
Ivy Berry is standing in the living room with a sourpuss face. She always has this face. Also, Tamarind got scolded for that trap on the chair.
Tamarind: Hey, get up. I want that chair.
Boysenberry: There are three others just like it. Leave me and my homework alone.
Thistle: Whatcha doin’?
Ivy: Looking at this painting. What’re you doin’?
Thistle: Going to see that vase over there.
Omg, so boring.
No one does anything so far. I did catch Tutti and Jade being interesting though.
Then the game crashed. I do want to get rid of Thistle and Boysenberry in this chapter, so hopefully it will load back up without trouble.
So, the game continued to crash on load up. Repeatedly.
So, I saved the house to the bin and then put them on the same lot in a new (empty) Roaring Heights. Now for the first time in forever, SP is back on to get some kids and sims in town.
Even though Jam is an elder, it is not too late to bring in a kitten. Snowdrop joins the family.
After the move is the perfect time for a double birthday. Thistle screws shit up and goes first.
She turns out to be a Moonie clone with Caramel Tart’s coloring and Eggplant’s skintone.
She is stuck with one of the most useless traits found and then gets a LTW for Science career.
Boysenberry ends up being another with a big resemblance to Moonie.
His trait isn’t too bad at all. His LTW is Superstar Athlete.
Moonie refuses to finish her painting, but Eggplant and Tutti are skilling while Thistle and Boysenberry get tossed out.
Thistle moved out first and we soon find her protesting Nessie with my simself.
Ugh. That’s not why you moved to this town, SimMe.
Of course they find the computers first. It was neat that Jade and Tutti are playing Burnout multiplayer together. Wintergreen is in fact setting a booby trap.
Moonie finally paints, but not until I fulfill her only wants. Tutti and Tamarind are now enrolled in boarding school.
Boysenberry hasn’t been gone long, but I guess it was long enough that he needed to call dad.
Wintergreen: You didn’t see that, did you?
Jade: Oh, yes. I am so glad you were dumb enough to do that with me sitting right here.
Jade: Don’t ever do that again! You could give someone nightmares with that trap!
Wintergreen: That’s the point, Granny. Geez.
This one is going around the house “viewing” everything.
Tam is taking a well deserved rest. He just cleaned the whole kitchen and dining area.
PB is wondering why I left junk on the floor. Oops.
Only three levels to go? Cool!
Wow, everyone is doing something! Well, PB is dancing, but the others are skilling.
Ivy finally finds something to do, and of course chose something in the unfinished nursery.
I guess this is as good a place as any to stop for the day.
Self wetting (3): -75
Passing out (2): -120
I wish these morons would give me some positive points for once.
