Happy Movember all. I’ve been working on something that’s kindof interesting, it’s related to the Legacy Challenge. It’s not done yet, but I’ll post a link when it looks good.
Week 29 – Day 197:
It was an unseasonable warm Sunday. Hyperion & Deo have 4 days left until they’re Elders, Iris has 8 days before she’s an Elder, and Europa has 1 day left till she’s a Teen.
Iris was curious if her baby is a boy or a girl, so she asked the family doctor. Through osmosis, Griselda knew it’s a boy! Then Iris asked some rando/her best friend/her boss Rhonda Diwan-Irwin for a promotion, and she got it! Now she’s a 2nd Unit Director (7).
Europa and her cousin (?) Winston Morel-Wolfe had a play-date. So much fun, I get to test out some of the Generations’ features. They play pretend, have a Treehouse party*, and host a banquet.
*There ain’t no party like a Treehouse party!
Editor’s note: Hyperion’s actually gaining celebrity points now! As I mentioned before, the system was broken & he was making 0% progress towards the next celebrity level. After taking him out of the Architecture career, the system works fine. I don’t know why, just cuz..
In the wee hours of the morning, Iris goes into labour. As somewhat predicted, Iris gave birth to twin boys. Gawain Wolfe, and Roche Obsidian Wolfe. They’re both Evil; Gawain rolls Clumsy and Roche rolls Hates the Outdoors. Gawain’s got brownish eyes, and Roche has the Wolfe-red eyes.
Unfortunately, someone decided to spread a rumour about Iris getting arrested. Because they hate babies, or something.
Somebody’s long lost Auntie Francine sent the twins a matching pair of creepy dolls. Piewar for Gawain and Figment for Roche.
Also it’s Europa’s birthday up to Teenager. She’s so pretty. I could clone a whole family of Europas and be happy. This time I chose for her the Nurturing trait.
Also Iodine (the android) & Doug Claremont-Gilbert got married! Can Simbots have babies?
What a mess. The lot is just out-of-control from objects & dirty dishes and, and.. and, cleaning sinks! It’s just too much, I can’t even! I finally caved* and hired a butler. Classy fellow with a monocle, his name is Jefferson Hamel.
*I hate wasting money on frivolous things, but the Wolfes are so rich it doesn’t even matter.
Hyperion was promoted to Best Boy (2). And after weeks of glitching he’s a Renowned VIP (4). FINALLY! One step closer to his LTW.
I signed Europa up to take Art as an after-school activity. Not as useful as Ballet, but I guess it’s something. Also she’s going on her first Field Trip (hopefully) to Area-52 Test Labs tomorrow.
Europa and Claude Dent-Wolfe have the flirty-hearts for eachother. He’s Prometheus’ son, so.. 1st cousin once removed. Eww, EAxis.
Editor’s note: Holy, land-cow. It’s day 200!! I never expected to get this far! I mean, I hoped I would, but since I have no follow-through on anything it seems really unlikely.
Iris was promoted up to Script Writer (8). Nearly there! Also the local theatre wants Hyperion to cameo in their play.
To celebrate 200 Sim-days, I threw a big-arsed party. My graphics card on my laptop was like “Please, just no, have mercy on me!” But I just grinned and did it anyways*. To hell with 10+ framerates! Muahahaha!
*Maybe this is one of the reasons my laptop died.. 😳
As you can see, there’s 19 FX machines, 7 strobe lights, 8 staircases (in case of emergency), and 4 huge dancefloors. With all the different effects firing at once, it looked kindof nuts.
Deo and Hyperion are now considered Everybody’s Best Friend. Hurray!
A new rumour about Iris getting in a fight with someone! Who keeps spreading this noise?
The butler isn’t terribly useful; but better than nothing, I guess?
Hyperion was promoted up to Key Grip (3). Deo’s considered a Marathon Runner, so he’ll live a good long life.
Also Jonathan Morel-Wolfe likes Europa. That’s her… second cousin. So technically legal, but weird.
Hmm, Dara Dent-Wolfe and Donte Claremont-Dreamer are dating. I wonder whatever happened to Jamel?
There were 4 birthdays on this day, but I started the whole “birthday cake” process kindof late so only Gawain and Roche aged up on the right day.
Continuing from yesterday, Deo and Hyperion aged up very late in the night (or early in the morning).
Deo’s reached the pinnacle of fame, a celebrated celebrity, he’s now a Superstar (5). Too bad that wasn’t his LTW instead of Hyperion. Speaking of, Hyperion’s been promoted up to Personal Assistant (4).
Europa misbehaves slightly and releases 50,000 frogs from the Biology department. That’s so impressive I’m not even mad about it.
Europa’s gotta get ready for The Big Dance next Monday. Her 3 possible dates are:
- Jonathan Morel-Wolfe – Brown hair and brown eyes. 2nd cousin once removed.
- Rogelio Diwan-Irwin – Short black hair and glasses. Not related.
- Winston Morel-Wolfe – Red hair and Wolfe-red eyes. Jonathan’s brother.
We’ll try the one not related by blood first..
At least the butler dispenses advice: “Sims are shaped like lawn darts. Do keep that in mind next time you’re outside.”
So Dara’s ex-rebound Jamel is dating the infamous Dr. Sheri Diwan-Irwin.
Well, it looks like Belladonna tricked me. Last week I said that she’d completed her LTW because she has lvl 10 Mixology skill and I had purchased “a bartop counter”, as in furniture. I didn’t realize that she needed to own “a literal bar”, as in a business. But after investment, 100%, she is for sure a Master Mixologist. LTW FTW!
Hyperion’s still trying to become more famous, so I send him to meet Isidro, the famous ghost. (It turns out if you’re famous and die in TS3, you are forever stuck haunting the dance club where you died. Bummer. Or awesome, depends how you look at it.)
Next week: Ohmagod, it’s like, totally The Prom!
Community death count: 291 or so.
Legacy Score: 81. (Gen: 5 + LTW: 12 + Portraits: 14 + House: 20 + LTR: 30)
