Last time, Fiyero aged up and decided that he wants to be a Jack of All Trades. Then the family moved, since Riverview was so laggy.
And so we begin Generation 3!
So here we are in Hidden Springs, where the grass is very green.
The only place I could find to place the 60×60 home lot was all the way over here near the edge of town, but that’s okay; we have cars for faster transport to the town centre now 🙂
Also, apparently our investments didn’t transfer over; we have a little under $200k in the bank now. Fiyero will go buy up the rabbitholes soonish. I actually remembered to take the food from the fridge out of sim inventory, so we still have all Phoenix’s excellent leftovers 🙂
All my CASTable painting frames died, but I want to play in a non-laggy town, so we’ll deal with bright yellow for a while. The romantic photo died as well, so I’ll get Jess and Chance to take another one.
Most of the gnomes made the move okay; I think we lost one bunny. But we get tons of those, so not to worry.
Yes, the simselves arrived safe and sound. As you can see from the popup, I brought the Moss family too – Story is Fiyero’s best friend, I couldn’t leave her behind.
Chance wanted to read a logic book, so I sent him to the library, and look who we found! Hai Liam! Also, some random lady who has never met Chance thinks he’s awesome. I hovered over her to find out her name…
and it’s hilarious!
I wonder whose house this is?
It’s the house I put Fiyero’s potential spouses in. Forgive the loud walls; EA decorated it. Harley Quinn Personality (from The Cult of Personality) is the one to answer the door.
Fiyero wants to learn Harley Quinn’s sign, so she’s the first of our potentials he’s going to befriend. She’s an Aquarius; not compatible, but that’s ok.
*sigh* I left him alone, and he mocked her Vegetarianism. Not good, Fiyero!
How about you introduce yourself to another potential; Yttrium Mendeleev from the Mendeleev Legacy/ISBI. Oooh, heartfart!
He was kicked out at 2am, but at least he’s met the first two. We shall be back 🙂
Ohcrap! Fiyero is on fire and his parents are asleep!
Thank god Chance is a light sleeper and wakes up quickly!
Note to self: don’t let the heir do dangerous activities when he’s the only one up!
We had enough money to buy out the Business Building, Bookstore and Grocery, plus partnered a few others. It’s good in a way, it feels less cheaty that they have so much money so quickly. I guess that’s what happens when you have house restrictions; can’t spend money on lots of furnishings and toys, so you buy real estate.
I’ve been leaving Jess and Chance on free will a lot; this is what I found when I came to check on them. Way to be random, Chance.
The potential spouses all work in science, so Fiyero heads over as soon as they’re home. And heartfarts with Lavender Chimeree, from the famous Chimeree Rainbow Legacy!
She’s a Virgo, which is compatible 🙂
Chance has wished to hang out with Tam, so we’ll track her down. She’s at Lars Disco-theque, which looks quite lame, but anyway.
They dance together, and it’s cute.
Lavender and Fiyero got up to friends, then Yttrium came home, so we’ll work on her some more.
He rolls the wish to be good friends with Yttrium as soon as they become friend; a good sign, I think.
Tam must have found an RI after Chance left the club.
Jess loves painting; those wishes you see in her panel are to paint 2/3/5 masterpieces.
PMSL! Fiyero broke the toilet…now he wants to blow it up. How about no? Your father will fix it.
It’s Chance’s birthday. And due to me making him fix the toilet, he’s aging up in the absolute worse place ever.
But he is a cute elder. And apparently I failed to take a picture of his face straight away; you’ll see it shortly.
Sam has a RI, too!
The car is coming along.
*snort* Milton? Nice name.
Look who I found in Fiyero’s inventory! His name is Mars, after 30 Seconds to Mars.
It’s Jess’ birthday! Yet again, I forgot, so hard to get a good picture of the sparkles.
Meanwhile, Fiyero is chatting to Harley Quinn outside the police station. I’ve been lacking on the pictures of his job, but he has solved a couple of cases thus far; when he wants to work during the day most of the targets are at work or school, and he’s making friends with spouses at night. Once he (you guys) pick a spouse, then we’ll work more on the career.
Haha, Fiyero wants to rock in the chair, but Phoenix’s ghost was in it. Just as he did the pouty face, she poofed away. Good thing too, it was almost 10am.
This is the last of the potential spouses, Dixie Secskie of the Southern Prettacy. No idea who the random in the red jacket is.
As soon as he was inside the house, Dixie ran off to the bathroom, so Fiyero sits down to some chess with Lavender.
Oh, and it’s Leisure Day – my graphics driver got updated and all my settings reset. I must have forgotten to change the seasons back. Ah well, it means the girls don’t have to work, so Fiyero can get onto picking one.
The oldies wished to go to the festival, so they did that. Took a greeting card shot, as you do.
Chance was hungry and wished to enter the hot dog eating contest, so why not.
He thrashed Jess and the townie dropped out before eating much.
Jess then has a water balloon fight with another townie.
While Chance has a snow cone. I think he was playing with the soccer goal, thus the change to athletic gear. Hip and happening Chance keeps his Converse as an elder 😉
Fiyero is in the spouse house when I get this popup… strange, I noticed no fighting between the ladies.
Chance wanted to put on a ‘fireworks extravaganza’, so here we are.
I love the rainbow one.
He is only rolling friendly wishes towards the girls… is definitely straight, but not liking these options. Hmm…
He’s now best friends with Harley Quinn, so ‘considers attractiveness’.
And gets 1 out of 10.
See, even though we got that popup about Dixie moving, she’s still at the house.
And then Fiyero rolls this! Finally, a romantic wish!
More landscape paintings by Jess. I thought Hopeless Romantics painted romancey things?
Fiyero talks to himself.
And then invents some more.
Ooh, this looks promising…
Woot, wish fulfilled. More room for wishes about the girls now.
Lavender got a promotion.
As did Yttrium. These girls will be ahead of the race if they get chosen as spouse 🙂
She is so pretty.
The sink is broken, so Fiyero fixes it. In the dark. Why in the dark?
Because Harley Quinn has chosen to tell a ghost story in the middle of the afternoon.
After the ghost story, Fiyero considers the attractiveness of the other two girls.
And likes neither. What the…? He heartfarted with Lavender and Yttrium, how does that equate to 1 out of 10?
But they both think about the other when left on free will…
He’s kicked out at 2am once more, and proceeds to talk to himself when he gets home. The reason I’m allowing him to do this is that I’m trying to find a good picture for his title card.
I eventually settled on this. Man, he has some random and unhelpful traits. Maybe insanity is why he finds no-one attractive? Though easily impressed means he should be more likely to be attracted…
The next day (Saturday), Fiyero wanted to ‘group up with Lavender’, so they go to the summer festival.
Raelindolin is there, and she joins the others in a water balloon fight. Another townie was supposed to help Lav, but he skipped out.
So she got rather pummelled.
He has then wished to give her a gift; we gave her the soccer ball that I did not know they had.
Dixie invited Fiyero to a party!
I’ve been updating the house a bit; where the indoor garden used to be, Jess now has a little artistic nook. Room for her three easels, with a drop cloth beneath them.
On the other side, a drafting table. I also gave her a sketch book, just because I haven’t used it much. University has fun stuff!
This is the first sketch she drew; kind of lame, but the game says it’s Brilliant.
Apparently Fiyero was the only person invited to Dixie’s party. That’s okay, they can make friends.
He’s attracted to her, which is good.
They heartfart when Fiyero considers her attractiveness.
10 out of 10, woot!
Oops, I forgot to screenshot it, but Yttrium also moved out of the Spouse House. And then promptly has trouble with the bills.
Jess has an action I haven’t seen before, she wants to ask her dead father to sketch. Is that asking if she can sketch him?
It is! LAMO, check out his pose!
Doesn’t look much like him (looks like a woman’s hand, too), but anyway…
Tam is pregnant! Happy little accident, lol. I love the SP popups.
Aw, but Sam isn’t getting along with pregnant Tam.
Maybe because she has a new boytoy. Who is also the RI of her other roommate, Rae. Oh, simselves.
Fiyero wants to improve his gardening skill, so okay. We may not need it to eat anymore, but I still like to keep it. When we eventually run out of Phoenix’s leftovers, we’ll need to cook again, lol.
OMG, Jess, you just got out of bed. Why are you in the rocking chair? Literally, she has 10 hours on her ‘well rested’ moodlet.
I did a little experiment; Fiyero was gardening for about 4 hours and his hygiene went down to zero.
Jess, who has the Dirt Defiant LTR, also gardened for about 4 hours, and her hygiene is over 3/4 full still. So that reward does do something!
Oh hey, the 5th rabbit gnome appeared. No, not a new one, because these all have names, I checked. I’ll have to check what I need to do to get some other gnomes; I know holiday parties is one, but we can’t officially do that until we unlock electronics.
I’ve been slack at photographing Fiyero’s investigating exploits, so here we are, this is his latest job. The sim chosen to be the ‘criminal’ is hilarious; for those of you without Hidden Springs, Granny Schue is an elderly woman living in a house with three or four kids not her own – kind of a foster granny. Probably the least likely to be a criminal.
Hehe, checking the mail is cute, he kept looking around to see if anyone was watching him.
Oi, Dixie, you’re not supposed to be getting romantic with anyone! Least of all Tam’s baby daddy!
I had turned off SP Romance in the household, but then she moved out. It is now back on all four individuals; I’ll try to remember to turn it back on once a spouse is chosen.
Upon solving the Granny Schue case (she was a criminal, oh noes!), Fiyero has solved 3 cases and gets an award!
No mayor presentation outside City Hall, but he still got a trophy. Which I don’t yet have a picture of; once a spouse is chosen, I’ll decorate an adult bedroom for them, and make a life wall for Fiyero like the one Jess has. Until then, he’s still sleeping in his teen room.
These two are still keeping the romance alive.
Despite the epic pillow fight going on in the bedroom, Harley Quinn has decreed it is sleep time (possibly because it’s 1am).
With their relationship bar now full, I have Fiyero check attractiveness again. Still 1. What is going on? I’ve never had a sim be unattracted to so many females at once.
Going to try some things, see if we can at least get a couple of points for each of them. I don’t like forcing my sims into relationships with someone they’re not attracted to, and I also want to give someone other than Dixie a shot at winning the spouse poll.
See you next time, when hopefully Fiyero will like more than one of the girls as a romantic interest.
