Previously, we had issues with Yttrium going to work; try as I might I couldn’t fix it, so the family has moved. But Fiyero and Yttrium did manage to have a child, the gen 4 her, a girl named Cosette – she has her father’s red hair and her mother’s gold eyes.
So we’re back, now in Twinbrook. I did a normal EA move with them, rather than using nraas Porter, and it has worked brilliantly, pretty much zero lag now.
Since there are no 64 x 64 lots in Twinbrook, I have built them a house on a 40 x 40 lot; the open rooms are where a laundry and bathroom will be once Yttrium unlocks indoor plumbing.
Boq and Nessa share a room; once Boq turns teen he won’t need to sleep anyway.
New grave area for Bruce and Phoenix, in the shade of a lovely old tree.
The backyard/playground is a lot smaller on this house, but I like it – easier to find the kids.
The gnomes, paintings and romantic photos made the move fine. We did lose the fixer upper car, but that’s okay, Yttrium needs handiness, so she can fix up a new one.
Unfortunately, we have lost all Phoenix’s perfect leftovers. That’s okay, we’ll get Nessa (the simbot) onto it. Give her something to do.
As soon as I unpause, everyone scatters.
Once again we lost the wooden painting frames; I’ll update these as we go, want to play now!
Chance is on upgrading duty.
Jess and Fiyero find the skilling area.
Boq went straight for the treehouse.
LMAO, look at the wish Yttrium has rolled. We’ll lock that in!
So, since Nessa needs to learn how to cook and Yttrium wants to read a gardening book, it’s off to the library for these two – and we’ll take Cosette also, so she can read her toddler books (I made some small modifications to the Twinbrook library to add the skill books, and a better kids area).
Cosette’s TSAL (toddler skilling assembly line).
Fiyero has already discovered a new potion, well done!
LOL, and he’s also rolled the wish to woohoo in the treehouse. I guess that will need to happen soon.
And we see our first two Twinbrook townies; Silver and Marigold Racket.
Yttrium introduces herself.
Cosette is a cutie!
Argh, Jess is on fire! Good thing Fiyero is right there.
Since Chance is upgrading the bathtub, Jess can’t wash off the singe just yet, so she gets a start on our new garden.
Yttrium has now wished to potty train Cosette. So we’ll use the potty I placed here for toddler toiletry needs.
Two down, just the toilet and washing machine to go 🙂 Man, it is so much easier to upgrade everything when there is only one ‘bathroom’ and no electronics!
Since Chance’s lifebar is now maxed, I allowed him to retire; he never wished it, so I hadn’t bothered before.
LMAO, that’s a strange opportunity. Sure, Jess will do it.
His very first day at school, Boq brings home a friend. Well, he was supposed to, but Bunny never showed up.
Oh wait, no, she is here. Man, her face is…unique.
Boq didn’t get much sleep last night, so he has a nap before playtime. Bunny’s not concerned, she does her homework at Boq’s desk.
Chance helps skill his granddaughter.
Fiyero had a rabbit hole opportunity at work today; completing it filled his promotion bar, so he got a promotion his first day – that’s Level 5! Two careers down, two more to go.
It’s Yttrium’s birthday! Oh great, and she’s having a midlife crisis.
And it’s also Fiyero’s birthday; told you they were the same age. He did not have a midlife crisis, but did get some bad hair.
I forgot all about Boq and Bunny; they’ve been having a water balloon fight for quite a while, judging by Boq’s Chilly moodlet. (I gave Boq the astronaut outfit for outerwear, it works well)
Yttrium’s first MLC wish! Easy enough, we can do that.
Ooh, Boq is feeling out of sorts. My first experience with the Unstable trait!
And later that day, he skips school to make a snowman *sigh*.
Yttrium wishes to get a makeover, but the stylist is busy chatting, so she’ll do it herself.
Oops, I forgot to get Boq to fix up his delusional state. He’ll have to go to hospital, I like him Evil.
These two continue to be cute together. They’re always autonomously being romantic.
The Medical career is taking up too much of Fiyero’s time; he’s made it to L5, which was his wish, so we’ll move onto Ghost Hunting.
Yttrium is working on that ‘become more muscular’ MLC wish.
With his time much freer, Fiyero is able to teach his daughter how to talk. Though she’s not very interested in doing so.
Ooh, and I just remembered, I need to put the Simselves back in town. It’s only Tam (autumnrein) and Sam (Griffindork) thus far; once Jess and Chance die, I’ll put in new versions of the others that were in Riverview.
Yttrium got a promotion! I wanted to send her to befriend Tam and Sam, but there’s no-one home at the Simly house.
This is Thomas Castor; Boq went to his place after school. And, as his friendly self is wont to do, rolled a whole bunch of wishes around making friends.
The other friendly one in the house, Chance, is befriending Rosy Whelohff, who randomly rang the door.
Ooh, good work, Fiyero. That’s 8 potions discovered. He needs to level up logic before he can discover the final two.
His first Ghost Hunting job is at the enormous Whelohff house. Great, that’ll take a long time to search.
And finishing one job, he gets a promotion.
Jess sculpted something other than furniture! We’re keeping it.
The next morning, Boq wakes up feeling out of sorts again; I had him take deep breaths right away.
Haha, Yttrium is checking out her wrinkles.
LOL, and Fiyero has randomly decided he needs to brush his teeth…right before he goes to bed.
Tonight we’re banishing spirits in the swamp houses.
And he has another promotion already.
Just to prove he is actually capturing the spirits.
Oh no, Nessa shorted out! It looks like she got wet doing laundry. I didn’t know it was possible for simbots to short out like that!
But we’ll take the opportunity to reprogram her; since she’s the family cook, she can be a Natural Cook. And she can be Neat, since she’s also the family cleaner.
Fiyero got an award, neat.
Thanks for putting Cosette to bed, Chance…but she just got up, she’s hungry. That’s your tired thought bubble.
Level 4 already!
Another MLC wish we can fulfil, new hair. (please ignore the ‘change jobs’ wish, I accidentally promised it when trying to clear.) Since she’s going up in the science ranks, I gave her a bun for her career outfit; it fulfilled the wish without me changing her normal hair.
Lovey dovey seniors. Always the car…
Today Boq is at Bunny Curious’ house after school. He has wished to be good friends with her, so excellent.
Man, the ghost hunter career is so easy. One week and Fiyero is now L5.
I missed the sparklies, but it’s Cosette’s birthday. She rolled Brave.
I think she has mostly Yttrium’s looks, with possibly Fiyero’s nose? We’ll see when she’s older, I guess.
Her new room is reasonably simple, wood and grey with touches of green.
Jess maxed sculpting! *adds point to score*
Cosette really loves her grandpa, this was her first action after turning child. And she’s pretty good, too.
For Fiyero’s last career, he’s going to go the self-employed inventor route, as per the rules of the challenge. When he tops the career, the Rourkes will be able to use lightbulbs instead of candles, and they can have a (landline) phone!
And now we start with the bunk bed wishes. I don’t know what it is about these (and indoor planters) that make sims constantly wish for them.
As punishment for rolling the wish, Yttrium is sent to jog in the snow all the way to the Simly house.
Here’s Sam; though Yttrium can’t do anything more than do a friendly introduction before she’s off to work.
LMAO, check out this wish of Boq’s. We’ll do that as soon as he eats breakfast.
Tam is in the political career again, so she’s not working on Saturday. Yttrium is able to make friends reasonably quickly. Haha, and they’re both clumsy!
Cosette and Chance play tag in the snow. They’re best friends already, though she barely knows her mother.
Fiyero goes to the consignment shop to get a start on selling his inventions. Except they don’t seem to count towards his career; maybe he has to make the inventions after commencing self-employment? That’s annoying, I’ve been saving all the inventions he made as he levelled up, especially for the career.
Yep, selling the inventions he’s made today do count. He goes from L1 to L3 selling a single Flying Fighter.
Since they’re both at the end of their lifebars, I thought I better check out the skills Chance and Jess have earned. They have both maxed four actual skills, with a bunch of random points in other hidden ones.
Jess’ list is huge; I guess this is what happens when you raise kids from babies.
Lol, Tam is bisexual! I set SP to have half the town gay or bi – it makes it easier for everyone to find a partner that way.
She and Yttrium are well on their way to best friend status.
Naw, Cosette keeps rolling wishes toward Chance. First a hug…
Then a gift.
I gave in to the constant “buy a bunk bed” wishes, and bought one for Cosette’s room.
She then promptly rolls this. Sure, sleep on whichever, they’re both yours!
Both of the children do this every day. Cosette I know has the Brave trait, not sure why Boq does it so often. But, thankfully, they usually check one of the adult beds, so they can still sleep in their own.
Both Chance and Jess have wishes to go out on a date with the other, so off they go. They go to a concert, then out to eat.
It’s Boq’s birthday! Since he only had a C in Twinbrook, Supernatural Skeptic is locked in.
I dressed him in ITF clothes again; let’s just pretend his alien parent gave him the futuristic clothes.
And the first thing he does as a teen is cackle evilly about someone’s discomfort.
A pregnant Amy Bull watches Jess and Chance; who managed to sit at the same table on their date!
And we’ll end things here; next time, more inventing, teen aliens and perhaps a teen romance.
