Last time, there was lots of fishing and lots of romance. Seems to be the theme of this challenge thus far.
Starla is on the field trip with the kids, and Jess is getting in trouble, lol.
The skill certificates; Bruce’s on the left, Phoenix’s on the right.
Jess got Shop Captain!
Phoenix has taken up sculpting as a hobby.
So far she’s sculpted a bar stool and a table.
And now a garbage bin. We could almost furnish a house with these!
Phoenix keeps rolling these wishes; how about you fill that performance bar and get to L10, then I’ll buy you a fridge.
I left Jess to her own devices after Shop Club – she’s “hanging out” on the playground equipment at school. In her formal wear. Okay then.
Jess has now fulfilled the requirement for gen 2 heir – she has reached L5 in both fishing and gardening before becoming a YA.
Bruce’s participation in the RHAT Race means his performance leapt up.
He is now this close to his LTW! Suck Up to Superior all day should do it.
Viola Danevbie is expecting a baby! No idea who the guy is, some townie.
She already has an A, but Jess can do this opportunity easily – she only has about 20 fish in her back pocket already. Plus a wish to increase her fishing skill, so she’ll go fishing this afternoon.
Cool, I haven’t seen this popup before. A whole year, hey?
Aaand, LTW completed! Bruce is an Astronaut!
And what’s the first autonomous interaction he has after reaching his life time goal? Of course.
He found a beetle. And an alarm clock. Don’t ask me why the portrait changed – he hasn’t changed clothes.
Jess made the honor roll.
Heather is a new co-worker of Phoenix’s.
Now Jess is fishing in her formal wear. Hidden Insane trait?
As per his wish, Bruce has maxed Handiness.
Phoenix wishes to find some seeds, so she heads to the graveyard after work. She’s about 2/3 of the way up the performance bar, and it’s Friday, so she’ll work Saturday and Sunday and should definitely have that last promotion by then.
My simself’s son is dating Phoenix’s friend. That’s weird. Blueberry was put into town as a YA at the same time my simself was…
Willow just had a baby by Don, but now she’s not his friend.
Well, Phoenix didn’t last long in the catacombs. I didn’t get any popups except for the “bad experience” one.
And now she has decided to rake up leaves. I love Neat Sims.
Apparently Pink is unpopular. Aww. Or maybe Heather is. Not sure, that popup is a bit ambiguous.
WTF, Bruce? He came tearing out of the house when he woke up. His thought bubble doesn’t help much…
Ohhh, it’s the washing machine. Apparently it’s noisy or something? Jess had no reaction to it.
And Bruce is hungry because he wished to “go fishing before 6am”, so we’ll fulfil that then get him breakfast.
The garden looks very cool and colourful atm. Though it is in need of watering and weeding – Bruce will get on that once he’s eaten.
I decided that, as a reward for reaching L10 of his career, Bruce can build a fence around the “bathroom”. There is still no indoor plumbing, but it should give them a bit more privacy now.
I also did a bit of landscaping, most playing with terrain paint. The garden looks like a garden now!
I see that thought bubble, Jess! You broke the toilet again, didn’t you?
Phoenix fulfilled a gardening challenge. This is the one where she planted 19 different types of plants.
Oh, Applejack must have aged up, he looks different in Jess’ wish panel. She has 2 more days until YA, so we’ll just wait a bit.
Speaking of aging up, I think the ages are a bit borked in my game. Remember how Phoenix aged to adult before Bruce? He’s now 7 days til elder.
She has 13. WTF game? I think I’ll just wait til Bruce ages up, then force Phoenix to elder on the same day.
Haha, Viola is dating Shane Shofield! He’s a sim I made of the character from Matthew Riley’s book series. And he’s apparently aged up into cornrows since then. (IDK, it was funny to me)
Jess’ moodlet is cute. She does love the heat.
More free recipes for Phoenix. This is her third one.
And with the end of that shift, Phoenix has topped the culinary career! And it wasn’t until I was taking these snapshots that I realised she never wished to. Really not ambitious, this one.
You know what this means…fridge! And we have the Kelvin thingamie fridge, where leftovers don’t go bad. I do love doing the Culinary career early in a legacy 😉 I tried to make the fridge look reasonably old school – wood and wicker could totally keep things from spoiling, right? And they have a wood fired oven, because duh, no electricity.
But, as per my own personal rule I use to make the game more difficult – they will only cook things that they have the ingredients for. So we’ll be having lots of sushi, with all the fish Bruce and Jess catch; and sweet things for Phoenix the veggo.
They won’t be running out of food – I had Jess stock the fridge with all her produce and fish – just hers is more than enough to keep them going for weeks.
These are all Jess’ award and trophies and such, btw. The purple one is Art Show Participation, and the other is for Shop Club, as is the golden saw on the wall.
Bruce is the first one to use the fridge. No idea why they can’t make autumn salad with the lettuce from their inventories instead of waiting for a fridge.
Hey look, family meal!
Aw, Serenity and Twilight are drifting apart! (they were both placed in game as toddlers)
Sunday is a bit of a lazy day. Jess is painting, and Phoenix is filling up our new fridge with leftovers.
Sebastian is falling out with his mother 😦
Apparently Shane is a player, now he’s moved onto Willow.
Uhm…that’s pretty, Jess? *sells*
Mother and daughter being creative!
And what has Bruce been doing this rainy Sunday? Fishing, of course. He finally caught 20 different types of fish.
He is this close to maxing the skill!
Immediately afterwards he rolls up this wish. Sure, I’ll try to figure out where death fish are in Riverview – there’s no pond at the cemetery.
Phoenix is going to visit the simself house after work. This is the house…and I think I must not have some CC, because it seems to lack windows. Oh well.
Meanwhile, Jess finishes a cute painting. We’ll hang it up somewhere. Ooh, which reminds me, I have to get Jess to register for self-employment…or maybe I should wait until she’s YA? Nothing in the rules about being able to start jobs when the heir is a teen.
Apparently the front door of the house is in the garage? I read somewhere about how to change this on a non-active house…now if only I could remember.
Serenity is a teenager!
Starla and Rochelle don’t care that someone is trying to visit, they’re off…doing something or other. Pink, however, is a gracious host.
There, the simselves have windows now! And a front door, which is always helpful.
Wow, this room is kind of creepy, with the huge mirror. I am impressed with how seamless it is against the wall, though.
Ooh, Heather is home now, too. Gosh, she has such big eyes, so pretty.
Uhm, okay. Didn’t realise we had Bot Builders in this time, but hey.
Geez, I left these two alone for a few minutes while I tended to Jess and Bruce, and they’re acting like children.
It’s Jess’ birthday! Since no phones = no party, we’ll do a family cake.
Cute, I’ll try to make this happen before tonight’s party.
Viola had her baby. I had almost forgotten she was pregnant.
While waiting for Serenity to finish at Art Club, Jess does her homework…right in front of school.
This is the house where Serenity and her father, Sebastian live.
Serenity needs a makeover…
much better. Dammit, but now she’s going to work. Oh well, I guess they won’t be BFFs.
With Bruce at work until 1am, the ‘party’ will only be Jess and Phoenix. We bought the cake from the grocery store, not buy mode. There are no rules about it, but I figure that replicates a ‘no oven’ realism.
Aaand, she’s just standing there.
Phoenix left to have a bath (thank you, get rid of the stink from gardening all day) and Jess dropped “have birthday” from her queue. She was standing there for two hours before she moved.
And now her head is gone from her actions. I have had the same issue with others; she’ll be reset very soon.
See? And I do believe her face has changed shape also. And now I don’t have the MC option to take her into CAS. Awesome.
