Last time, Chance was revealed as the winner of the Spouse Poll; so Jess wood and wed him.
Heather has another RI…she’s really making the rounds.
And another one…
Phoenix made a brilliant sculpture. It’s pretty. But she had a wish to earn $2000 sculpting, so we sold it.
Everyone skilling in the morning. Only Chance is going to work today, but not until the afternoon.
Oh, and I almost forgot. An orange bike for Chance 😀
He seems to like it okay.
Phoenix smashed a stone block, and got Woohooium!
This is all Phoenix and Jess do. I’m keeping Jess on small paintings for the moment, so she can do 30 and do the Brushmaster Skill Challenge, so the bigger ones will be faster.
Check out the moodlet! Methinks Jess is preggers.
Apparently I’m now an elder. Cool.
Chance got promoted to L3, well done. He’s still behind in guitar skill, but we’re working on it!
Jess is feeling the nausea.
Gross, bright green puke.
And we bought out the spa.
Pink continues to lose friends… (sorry Pink, your simself keeps misbehaving!)
Apologies for the dark picture (still don’t have my laptop back); Phoenix finished a mermaid sculpture, and I thought it looked nice in the pond.
As has been well documented in many a legacy and ISBI, sims are addicted to this thing. If I leave them on free will, they flock to it. Especially the elders. Also, check out Jess’ unimpressed face. She’s nauseous again, poor thing. Every three hours like clockwork.
Moar skilling! This is pretty much what every day looks like atm. Jess is working, Phoenix keeps rolling wishes to sculpt and Bruce finds the weight bench whenever he’s on free will.
Chance previous rolled a wish to learn the Handiness Skill. According to the rules, if the heir or spouse of gen 2 maxes handiness, the family can start using cars. So I’m fine with Chance learning handiness. Bikes are fun for something different, but they’re so slow! It can take an hour to ride from the Rourke household to the centre island of Riverview.
As Autumnrein suggested, the Rourkes have now purchased solar panels.
In theory, this would mean they could produce their own energy, though I’m choosing to use it for the bill reduction – for now.
Aw, pretty kitty painting.
Viola Danevbie has now gotten her claws into Tomahawk. That girl gets around almost as much as Don Lothario.
Phoenix rolled a wish for a music box, and I obliged. It’s a mummy one Jess found at the consignment store. I’m not sure if these music boxes can give them the music moodlets? Will have to do some testing.
These two are constantly flirting autonomously. Despite my initial misgivings, Chance is growing on me – he seems to be a good match for Jess.
And, despite Jess asking Chance to move in before they got married, she has still rolled this wish. I think my game is borked.
But hey, this brokenness is easily ignored. Don’t give me the crashy I’ve seen in other people’s games!
Jess popped! Generation 3 is on the way!
Chance is really excited about it.
I did not know the “be frisky” interaction was autonomous!
Uhm, Jess, that’s your parents’ wardrobe. Where they go for woohoo also.
Chance wants a girl. Jess hasn’t rolled a wish either way.
Pilot got a promotion.
Jess has rolled kid wishes, though, such as this one (which she’s completing right now).
And then once she’s done, she wants Chance to read the book.
Pink is trying to buy some new friends.
Phoenix has a wish to max Charisma locked in for ages, but she was too busy getting to the top of her career. Now that she has some more time to read, she’s finally fulfilled it.
Wedding gifts! I’m pleased that Applejack and Pilot got over losing Jess quickly enough to be happy at her marriage.
I laughed when I saw that Phoenix and Bruce gave the exact same thing. And so many wall hangings – you’d think Jess isn’t able to create wall hangings for the home.
Here is the gnome Pilot gave us. Sadly, it doesn’t move.
Chance fulfills both his and Jess’ wishes to read a pregnancy book. In his work clothes. In the light of the full moon. Because that’s how Sims roll.
Someone asked me about the option to “go to bed with” a spouse or romantic interest. I can’t remember exactly when it shows up, but all four of the adults in the house have this option when their spouse is on the home lot.
Upon clicking it, the action will appear in the spouse’s queue (Chance’s, in this case), behind whatever else they’re doing. If what they were doing was autonomous, it will cancel out the current action, as per normal programming. Pretty awesome way to make spouses stop goofing off!
Wow, the family is worth quite a lot! Due to the one-room-per-household-member rule, the house is quite small, but there has been significant investment in the community. The Rourkes give back to their town!
Naw, it’s Phoenix and Bruce’s anniversary. They have raised a child from baby to adult in that time, and their baby has a baby of her own on the way. But it’s only their one year anniversary. SimLogic.
But they got this cute moodlet all day.
Oops, Applejack is going to be a daddy.
Jess has finally rolled a ‘baby furniture’ wish – I was waiting for this to expand the house. There are only 4 sims at the moment, but I didn’t build a new room when Chance moved in, so we have space within the rules.
Behold the new layout. I changed things around a bit – there is now a backdoor through the inside garden, and the nursery is in the middle of the house, where everyone will be able to get to the baby quickly.
You may or may not be able to see in the above picture, but we bought another solar panel, and Bruce is upgrading them.
Jess got caught in a hail storm!
Having the festival lot indoors is a big plus – Chance can play for hours on end, and he’ll never get hot/cold/soaked. When he raises up a few levels he may even earn some tips! (no-one has watched him as yet)
Bruce is a horn dog.
And Jess has finally rolled a high-value baby wish! Locked in.
She just finished this awesome painting. It doesn’t really fit with the decor/personalities in the house, though, so it will be sold to further Jess’ painting career.
I didn’t even know Pilot had a baby on the way. Congrats, I guess. Janny is a weird name, though – should it not be Jenny?
Chance is up to L4!
Bruce finally fulfilled that last athletic skill challenge. Now he’s never going to stop exercising, since he doesn’t get fatigued.
Wow, Jess’ belly is huge!
No wonder, the baby is coming!
Though he’s doing the “OMG baby!” dance, Chance’s face doesn’t look very worried.
Jess decides to take herself to hospital, and she got to the door before I realised and cancelled the action. As per the rules, the baby will be born at home!
It’s a boy!
His name is Fiyero, after Fiyero Tigular in the Wicked novels/musical. Yes, this challenge now has a naming theme – all children will be named after characters in musicals.
He rolled Insane and Loves the Heat. I think Loves the Heat is becoming a family trait – both Jess and Bruce also have it. And insane will be fun later.
My laptop wasn’t allowing me to have Word open to take notes while I played, so I screenshot his favourites. I think that symbol is for Classical music? Plus Cookies and Irish Green.
Immediately after the birth, Bruce rolls this wish. Sorry bud, you only get 1. I hate it too, trust me!
I waited until the baby was born to recolour the nursery; this is what it looks like now. Since the main part of the house has lots of blue and pink, I included orange in this room, so Chance can have his favourite colour somewhere. It works well with Irish Green.
And yes, that is Jess’ old play table and potty taken out of storage for the new baby. Can’t be throwing these things away.
Bruce met my elderly simself at the festival. She has aged rather well.
Chance has people watching his playing! One is a bald teen with terrible fashion sense, but hey.
I gave him some hair and fixed his jeans. I believe he’s one of Willow Olympus’ younger kids – he has her white hair.
And look, people are finally watching (and tipping) Chance!
Bruce wished to get his face painted; okay then.
Phoenix loves being a grandma. She always attends Fiyero quickly, before I need to make any commands.
Sorry Chance, you’re only allowed one child. Which really sucks, because that plus the ‘have a girl’ wish would mean tons of LTH points for him 😦
And we’ll leave things here. I’m not sure when the next post will be up, as my laptop is still broken, and I can’t afford a new one right now. Hopefully I can find someone who will help me fix it rather than having to buy a whole new laptop.
