Welcometo the finale of The Tart ISBI. If not, I am doing this early enough that I can do more updates if needed.
Last time, we had birthdays and our first move outs. LTW were completed and we are now waiting to see if Elijah tops his career. The newest teens, Firefly’s triplets, are waiting to leave for boarding school as we speak.
First we have to deal with another bed issue. Pansy seems to think that the bed is occupied by Hazelnut, who is actually downstairs being told to take out the trash by Firefly. A copy of the bed was made and this one was deleted. I don’t count it as a used interaction to check if Pansy could sleep in the new edition, which she was able.
Speaking of Hazelnut. Her and Raspberry are having birthdays today.
Hazelnut: It was so funny! Auntie Firefly tried to make me take out the trash. Hahaha.
Firefly: I wasn’t joking, missy!
Hazelnut did end up taking out the trash.
Hazelnut: That’ll teach them to tell me to clean up.
Raspberry: Great, now we only have two laptops to fight over. Jerk.
While the two youngest get on the bus for school, our three teens are heading off to Prep School. See you in a week or two, kids.
LOL She adds another baby want to her list. You know, if I let one of you have a baby, I have to let you all.
Firefly: We love babies!
No. I’m too close to the end!
Glow Bug: Rainbow! C’mere, Rainbow!
Rainbow: Is someone really going to pay attention to me?
I have been working my tail off (lol) to get her a young again potion. I want her to live to the end and she was a day away from a maxed life bar.
Do we see the first grandkid on the horizon?
Hazelnut: Dishwasher is broke!
Lightning had it fixed before the girls even did their spins.
Raspberry went first and got her insane trait.
Hazelnut: Get me out of this hair right now.
Hahaha. She got her insane trait too.
I took her into CAS and she crashed my game. Bitch. The game hasn’t even been open 30 minutes, so of course I haven’t saved yet. Dammit.
I replayed everything the same way, but afterwards I had to reset the town.
This brought Sycamore and Sugarplum home a day early, so they each had a birthday, got a job and moved out.
Hazelnut did not crash my game this time.
and neither did Raspberry.
Bubble Gum ends up giving us the first fail of the chapter. -5
Pistachio got invited on a date (who never showed up). She saw her newly moved out brother and cousin there.
She heartfarted both Claude and Chip, distant relatives.
I don’t think she noticed, but her grandparents were there too.
I have had the population capped at 35 (although there is easily double that in town) for several weeks. I decided to allow pregnancies again. Therefore, I threw together a $15,000 starter home with 2 bedrooms and a nursery. Sadly, I forgot the lights. Oops. I put several down.
Across the street I put down the more expensive option with only one bedroom ($35,000). So that people can finally move around.
Pansy pees on the goopy carbonara. -5
The first pregnancy outside of the active family in 5 weeks is now incubating.
Raspberry heads outside at dawn to get a work out in.
The honeymoon is over for Firefly and Orion who now are fighting constantly.
Orion: I’m so hungry.
Hazelnut: You can eat me.
Omg. No! Hazelnut is now heartfarting her uncle. It might be time to move him and Firefly out.
The more I thought about it, the more I liked the idea. Firefly and Orion move out, but the triplets do stay.
Omg….and in true Tart fashion… My game is corrupt.
Everyone went invisible and when I reset the lot, this happened. Even Rainbow lost her color. I don’t even know who that woman is. LOL I think it might be Glow Bug. Further investigation shows that the WHOLE town has lost their genetics. It also took 3 of my 4 saves and they had to be deleted.
*Five Days Later*
Raspberry: You are so lame.
Hazelnut: Will you shut up and leave me to eat in peace?
Pansy: You should’ve had the hot dogs. Hot dogs are life.
Hazelnut: Homework is garbage. It’s probably what glitched the whole town and made us have our teen birthdays 25 bajillion times.
Raspberry: Will you shut up. Your face is garbage.
At this rate, this will never be done in time for the Finale tomorrow. I have been working on the town genetics glitch most of the week and it is Dec. 11 at 5am and I am finally ready to play again.
In the house is Glow Bug and Pansy. Lightning Bug and Elijah. Firefly and Orion had started fighting and got annoying fast, so I had them move out. Rainbow got her 500th young again potion and finally got one to stick. Raspberry is the youngest child of GB. Hazelnut is the youngest child of Lightning and Elijah. The triplets are at boarding school and they belong to Firefly and Orion.
Raspberry and Hazelnut are now sharing Ivy and Raisin’s old master bedroom.
Then the game crashed. Again.
So, the family moves across town and I notice something interesting. The house (which is on that S-curve in the background) is invisible.
We force some relatives to move houses and take over a big house. One of Lucky Palms’ premades with 3 bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms. The game is already running faster. I sent each one to a bed.
Both teens get right on to their homework to celebrate.
Their old houses was deleted and now there is no lag at all.
Lightning finds the pool.
Pansy runs off to break the computer, but did manage to get to logic level 5 first.
Hazelnut: You’re not as clever as you think, Aunt Pansy. In fact, you’re pretty lame!
Pansy: Don’t talk to me like that!
Oh give me a break! Eww!
GB: Woo! I fixed the computer and I didn’t kill myself!
Pansy: So, how was your day?
Hazelnut: Well, we haven’t crashed or glitched in five minutes, so I’m doing amazing!
Flirting is happening again.
Hazelnut plays angry guitar to the audience of no one.
If there’s a hot tub around, you can bet your last dollar that Elijah has found it.
Glow Bug spends time with Raspberry for the first time.
Raspberry works on her first athletic point while Hazelnut just got her 4th guitar point. (She had gotten one previously doing the same thing, but it got lost in a crash).
I’m pretty sure this would be their 20th anniversary.
Raspberry: Dammit, I can’t go to school now, I have to pee!
Hazelnut at least managed to get to the bathroom before the bus pulled up.
With Pansy asleep, Elijah still skinny dipping and Glow Bug tanning herself, the day goes by pathetically.
I’m not sure where the water jets are hitting Elijah, but I’m pretty sure we need to clean the hot tub before anyone else gets in.
Elijah: We need to show a united front so that neither one of us loses face time by being lame and boring.
Pansy: Yeah, us spouses need to stick together.
Checking Elijah’s photos, we find one of him and Raspberry.
Hazelnut heads over to the house one of the last teens in town. She left to go Fix the Boiler, which means she was exhausted when she finally remembered to come home. -5
Raspberry managed to work for a day, shower and get to bed with about 3 minutes to spare.
Instead of going to bed, Hazelnut goes out to skinny dip.
It turns out that she was stressed. As soon as that moodlet went away, she went to bed.
Oh no! I think Glow Bug and Lightning will be going over for a visit.
It may be the middle of the night, but that doesn’t stop these two from having a wonderful time together. Lightning chatted with Raisin and then grabbed a plasma juice and missed out on the fun.
Ivy is on very good terms with all the generation 10 kids and they all get an inheritance.
Lightning thought pillow fighting looked like fun and had his dad join him.
Raspberry: Thank God for the invention named fridge.
More flirting! Also, the first seasons themed day (Leisure Day) is happening for the first time in recent memory. That old house must have been seriously glitched.
They are finally able to go out and enjoy the town’s first Festival.
Lightning: OMG! Did Raspberry really wear that in the family photo?
Pansy: It wasn’t that bad!
Lightning: It wasn’t color coordinated!
Glow Bug: Well, this was fun, but I gotta go record a commercial.
You do realize that this is supposed to be a fun outing, right?
Ivy: I’m so happy that my kid is a doctor. NOW GET OVER HERE AND SAVE ME! HALP! I’M DYING!
Lightning: Coming, mother.
Raisin: Please don’t let your mom die. I can’t live without her!
Lightning: Chill, dad. She’s going to be fine.
Ivy: I don’t need a lobotomy!
Lightning: No, but I think your hat is on too tight. You might need a makeover.
Lightning: I’m pretty sure this GIANT pill will fix you right up.
Ivy: I feel a malpractice suit coming on.
Well, it seems that Ivy is going to be okay!
Elijah: Too bad you’re so young.
Hazelnut: Too bad your so gay.
Omg. You two are grossing me out.
Hazelnut: Someone, catch me!
Elijah must have heard me because he ignored her cries and skated on.
Raspberry was off having her own issues and then off to play horseshoes.
Raspberry: I didn’t invite you to play.
Lightning: Shut it and watch me kick your ass, little girl.
Raspberry: This game is stupid!
While Hazelnut and Pansy talk computers, Elijah is killing it at skating.
I think Pansy pissed off Hazelnut.
Glow Bug returns from her opportunity and heads over to play horseshoes with her dad.
Pansy is off practicing soccer now that Hazelnut has left to go back home.
I didn’t think Raspberry had a chance against him.
She did get her 4th celebrity star though.
Woo! All in a days fun, I guess.
The family took so long to make it over that they almost missed saying goodbye.
Ivy Berry Tart, generation 10 heiress, mother of five and grandmother of 11. Only got a medium grave for some strange reason.
Glow Bug sees Grim and down she goes.
The vamps are getting hungry, so Elijah shows off his new moves for the last time so they can go home and eat.
It’s been a very long time since they needed the moodlet manager.
Wintergreen finally decides to start a family.
You have to be kidding me.
Why is there a puddle under you?
Raspberry: I was swimming.
Both girls got zapped by the moodlet manager and sent off to prom.
Nothing happened at prom and both girls got home before curfew. Raspberry got prom queen, but since they are the only teens in town, no romance was to be had.
Nothing is going on around here, so we skip a few days ahead and find Rainbow getting some love.
Pansy needed to get pumped, so Lightning trained her until the opportunity got completed.
Firefly and Orion are expecting their first grandchild.
Elijah topped his career! +5
Tutti Frutti’s daughter, Alyson, had a baby boy with Crash Langurd.
Crash is now trying to give Boysenberry a great-grandchild, by dating Dina.
I am horrified to announce the engagement between Raisin and Ivy’s sister, Thistle.
Persimmon is giving Lightning and Elijah their first grandchild.
The triplets have graduated and are coming home.
And just like that, the house is at its smallest in a very long time.
With only two teens left to raise, the adults all find something fun to do to celebrate.
But then this happened.
Raisin left all five of his kids the same amount of money.
Sugarplum and her girlfriend are now expecting.
Wintergreen now has a son.
This is it, guys! The final birthday of the ISBI. Everyone in town was invited to the party.
So many people actually showed up. Luckily, no one was old enough to die, but we did have one girl go into labor.
Almost 24 hrs later, they finally get enough sims to leave that they can move around without lag and Hazelnut tells her cousin Sugarplum to get out and take all the stragglers with her.
I don’t think I have seen this moodlet before. Glad the whole world had a great time! Yes, Hazelnut had to throw the party. All the adults were at work.
(I got her colors wrong. Thought she was Aqua, but found out too late that it was Violet).
We have now had our last birthdays!
