Welcome back! Last time, not much happened until Wintergreen and Ivy Berry aged up to teen.
Ivy did get a makeover, but we won’t see it until she wakes up. I also downloaded a mod to get rid of the vampire overlay, so at some point I will need to exit the game and put that in.
Moonie is at the point when she just paints the same thing over and over again.
She sure is pretty. I did have to get her bangs to cover up her five head. It’s also the summer holiday so her and Wintergreen have the day off, which works out perfectly because Moonie wants to teach them both to drive.
Ivy is pretty happy to learn to drive right now.
Those crazy vampires. Ivy learned to drive in like three seconds. Moonie wondered if Wintergreen would learn that fast too. I’m not sure how it works, buy Wintergreen was a bit delayed because he had to change to his formalwear. When he finally got to the vehicle, he gained level 2. Must be nice.
Moonie only has three wants: Max painting, see Ivy graduate and pillow fight with Wintergreen. We did the quickest one first.
Moonie is doing quite well overall. She should max painting and get her LTW done with plenty of time leftover before Ivy ages up.
Eggplant gets some bass time in before a workout.
Ivy still has issues keeping her social out of the red. I find her frequently chatting on the computer with random people.
Jade: I thought these stupid rocking chairs would help with my tired moodlet.
You have a bed, use it.
Jam is still around. He is getting pretty old now. The cats don’t really do much lately. I think everyone just feeds them treats.
Tamarind and Tutti Fruitti graduate and bring home honor roll. Too bad they don’t actually count for shit.
They look so good!
Tamarind and Tutti Fruitti are just about ready to move out. First, we need to admire them without their vampire glow.
The Generation 9 download page is live today!
It’s with a heavy heart that I have made the decision for Jade and PB to move out and live forever elsewhere.
Word reached Moonie and Eggplant that they are new grandparents. I aged up Darwin to see how he turned out. He is a fairy/vamp hybrid.
So adorable and even better without the glow.
The first day with only four sims and three cats went fast…as in there was no lag anymore. The cats all slept and Moonie painted and then filled the cat bowls. Very boring, very fast!
Wintergreen did research at the science facility and came home and interrupted Eggplant who was just seconds from maxing his athletic skill. Ivy came home and went straight to bed. If you look real close, you’ll see that Moonie should max her painting skill in the next couple of days, which means this will be the last chapter of Generation 8!
Neither Wintergreen or Ivy know anyone good enough to use their one interaction to get a date for prom, but who know what will happen Monday night. I just realized it’s Friday, so everyone will be underfoot all weekend.
The guys were off doing guy things while Ivy kept Moonie company.
I actually found Wintergreen hiding upstairs doing his homework while Eggplant was napping in the rocker.
Wintergreen then finds the alchemy station and blasts through the levels.
I finally located Eggplant, who was at Boysenberry’s party.
It seems fitting that my simself goes into labor during that party. I was going to have Eggplant take her to the hospital, but I couldn’t remember if he had an interaction available.
The party ends with the birth of Paula.
I wonder which one will max their skill first.
It ends up being Eggplant. I wish he would work his logic, but I realized we don’t have a chess table. Whoops.
I relocated some exercise equipment and bought Eggplant a chess set. Instead of playing that, he decided to entertain Moonie.
She was highly enthused and managed to complete her LTW.
Ivy: I hope my prom picture is as awesome as Thistle’s.
Everyone is so boring. I spend my time looking for spouses. Coconut aged up and he’s freaking scary looking.
Graham Cracker might be okay with new eyebrows and without the plantsim hair.
Finally something interesting happens. Also, Eggplant and Moonie both just wished for 5 grandkids and to become grandparents. I wonder who got pregnant.
Graphite: Whaddya want? Why’re you here? Go away! I don’t want to be an ISBI spouse!
Graphite: I don’t see you! Go away!
He’s not too bad looking, I guess. I might turn immigration back on and see if we get better options.
Graphite: YES! Do that! Do it right NOW!
We interrupt this spouse hunt for Rudolph’s birthday.
Uh oh. When did this happen? No wonder I keep seeing “Be Mean to Eggplant” and “Insult Eggplant” wants.
A couple of friendly interactions and they were back to neutral friendship. I had Moonie convince him to play chess with her.
I left the game running while I played in SP. I came back to this.
Wintergreen: There are dirty dishes everywhere!
Moonie: I’m too attractive to do menial chores like dishes. Do them yourself.
Ivy: Okay, daddy. Mom says you’re basically a loser, so let’s prove her wrong!
Eggplant: So, which way does the horsie move again?
Ivy: It makes an “L”.
Moonie: L like LOSER…kinda like you!
Eggplant keeps finding ways to get out of playing chess, but I guess it is better than peeing in his chair.
It was past time to get out and see the world, so they went to breakfast.
Snowdrop and Rudolph spend their Sunday morning learning to hunt.
Jam was lonely, so he snuck off in the motive mobile with the humans. While they eat, he stalks for prey.
They hit the local watering hole next. A very tipsy Moonie pranked Ivy with Chattering Teeth. Ivy wasn’t too happy about it.
Moonie get tickets to the newest movie, Starship: Incredulous!
I knew someone was going to be popping out another one!
Elisabeth: Can I get a ride with you?
The last stop for the day was the local pool.
Salmon Parfait-Apple: Move it, Princess.
Ivy: Back off, bimbo. This is my diving board.
Salmon: Oh, Mr. Tart, you’re such a good diver!
Salmon: The perfect form. Man the view around here is awesome and sexy!
Eggplant thinks someone had some unresolved issues and bailed on the group outing.
Moonie took the kids out to dinner and Jam got there in time for a ride home.
Eggplant was still at the pool. I peeked in on him expecting him to still be diving, but found him snorkeling instead. Snorkeling in a pool? Weirdo.
Back home, everyone splits off to do their own thing.
Unless you’re Eggplant, who never came home and is in fact going to be late for work at this rate.
I was watching him because he was 3 minutes from peeing himself, but it disappeared. I guess you can pee in the pool? Anyway, that got him motivated to head on in to work after all.
Eggplant: Can’t screw up! I am getting my promotion today!
Moonie, with nothing to do now, spends her day playing in the sand.
Monday ends up being a spectacular day for everyone!
Moonie climbed out of the sandbox before anyone could find her there. She was so happy that Ivy and Wintergreen made it on the honor roll.
Moonie: You need to keep your grades up! Get right in there and do your homework before you leave for prom!
It’s finally prom time, but sadly they are the only teens in town. All the others aged up the night before.
In fact, all of yesterday’s teens are getting married and knocked up.
Prom did end up being a bust.
The days are rolling by slowly, but here they are out for one of their last field trips.
I want to know what dumbass thought it would be great to program sims to NOT look at the camera.
Finally something noteworthy! New grandchild incoming.
I figure it’s a boy since its name is Chip.
Eggplant and Moonie have 3 of 5 grandkids they are wishing for.
Wintergreen found the bass and played that until he almost starved. He then chose to become a One Sim Band.
I hate seeing the kitties leave.
What? This is a complete shock. I didn’t even know she had gotten married or pregnant.
Cute kid that ends up being another fairy/vamp.
It’s finally time. I can’t wait for them to finish school today.
Moonie spent her last day being controlled by sculpting that thing in the corner and then throwing a fairy house party all alone.
School’s out! Moonie fixes the sink as her last act.
Moonie had hired a maid the week before. I just now found out that this one does laundry!
How exciting that we are finally going to start Generation 9 and it’s not even 2020 yet!
Moonie and Eggplant both rolled this up.
I missed Ivy’s transformation, but I did manage to get Wintergreen’s.
The 10 days of teen took forever. It was such a boring time. Hard to believe, but we end without a fail and with a buttload of points. They do end up losing a few points because of Net Worth fluctuations..
