Previously at the Rourkes, Cosette aged up to YA, and went about making friends with the four potential spouses I dropped in. Yttrium got to L10 of the Science career, lifting the Gen 3 restrictions, and Fiyero discovered all the potions, completing the mini-challenge for Gen 3.
I had to add a new version of Eddie Kidd Daye; the previous one disappeared. No idea what happened, I don’t remember getting any error messages… hopefully the same thing doesn’t happen with this new version!
To start the new generation, here is Cosette’s title card. Her favourite colour is grey, so there won’t be too many decor changes in the house – until she picks a spouse, that is.
As she has wished, Yttrium is now retiring; she’s done all she needs to do for this generation.
LMAO, some random teen in a pirate hat came over to congratulate her. I have no idea why he was on the lot.
Wow, told you Cosette had lots of friends. She used “talk to friends” every day of school, and is now “hanging out with teammates” at work. Other than befriending the potential spouses and simselves, we haven’t really tried to befriend anyone.
She now wants to send a love letter to Flamingo. Can do – in fact, we’ll send a letter to each of the potentials.
I sent her over to meet the new Eddie Kidd after work – I stuck him in the house with Tam and Pink. And they heartfart; good.
They share the Heavy Sleeping trait. But before they can get much further than friends, he wanders off to sleep. Fair enough, it is after midnight.
OMG, Nessa got the Uncommonly Good opportunity! Jess had it, but died before she got the others in the chain. Nessa is immortal, so she has plenty of time.
Yttrium performs more science experiments; this one is on the dishwasher. They don’t seem to do all that much, shall have to play around a bit more.
Cosette is the first one to find the tub in the new bathroom; I have to remember to buy some bubble bath for them next time they’re in town.
Pink moved out of the little house; there were only two beds, to be fair. Tam better not steal Eddie Kidd…
I closed the popup before I read it properly; apparently Heather had a baby? She always pops out kids in my games, regardless of her Dislikes Children trait, lol. Baby is a girl named Geneva.
And her father? Sinbad Rotter. Who, as you can see, has also fathered a number of other children in town. The oldest and the youngest you see are Amy Bull’s children, bald kid is son of Julienne Knack and the girl with braids is Bambi Pincher, daughter of Penny.
Willow, cute name! Sam’s second child with Shark Racket. I sent Nessa over to befriend her/meet the kids.
This is the house she lives in now; you can see Sam and Willow in the open doorway. I could have sworn that the Rackets usually live in the top end of town…guess they moved.
*facepalm* great parenting Sam, leave your kids in the middle of the foyer!
I checked out the rest of the house; 3 bedrooms, no cribs. So we fixed them up.
This is Sam’s son Drew; he’s a cutie.
As per her wish, Cosette writes a love letter to Flamingo. Then, for good measure, to all the other spouse options.
Uhm, what? Where is Eddie Kidd? Why does he keep disappearing??
Oh, okay, he’s still in the world. She just can’t write him a love letter. Not good, but we’ll deal.
Yttrium has now fulfilled her wish to max fishing.
…geez Heather, I know you dislike children, but leaving your newborn on the hard stone outside? Even Sam didn’t do that. I gave these guys a crib, too. But no-one would answer the door to let Cosette in – I think this house is glitched.
Check out all the goodies Fiyero found at the consignment store! Four more gnome points, yay.
Yes, I forgot to mention, I now have WA. Also LN and ST, but haven’t installed those two just yet – enjoying adventuring with WA in a side game.
Well, apparently Cosette likes all the boys. That is 3 who get full marks.
Uhm, what are the entire Coddle family doing in the junkyard? I really hope they don’t live here…
Cosette meets her great-grandfather, Bruce.
Sam gets another promotion; this is L8 already.
These two new gnomes are Emeli and Adele; more musicians.
Why is it the oldies always like playing kids games? Yttrium wished to play hopscotch with Nessa.
Cosette is the first one to use the new landline phone…which is apparently still cordless. Lol, fail, EA.
Aw, Marius. Too bad, you’re staying.
Ooh, good thing Fiyero bought that martial arts book.
Yay, finally. Those inventing challenges are really hard!
These two are still really in love; when not skilling, they always roll wishes for one another.
Seriously? And why is it always the simselves?
Cosette got another promotion; I think this is L6. She’s just flying up the ranks.
Apparently the opportunity I accepted for Cosette involves actually going to China, despite having the Martial Arts book. So, after a new save to protect the file, she’s off. Only taking her and the Motive Mobile.
China is so pretty!
First adventure, as always, is ‘Seeking Adventure’. And Liang Creeper is the person who’s asking her to find relics! Well, in my game he’s Liang Yat Sen, but I recognise the face.
She needs to go to the Halls of the Lost Army. But first, we’ll visit the stores.
She heartfarts Liu Pei, the Relic Merchant. All that Charisma skill (and completing most of the challenges) means a Charming Introduction and a Get to Know makes friends.
*facepalm* oh, Cosette. I figured why not, she can have a Chinese fling; she doesn’t have a spouse just yet.
Uhm…except now she can’t Ask to Be Just Friends. Hmm…
And she also heartfarts Bao Louie. A little guy-crazy, our Cosette.
Wow, that’s a crazy jump into a shallow pool!
Once the first adventure is complete, it’s time to learn martial arts. Cosette actually did really well, didn’t get hit in the eye once.
Oh wait, she did get hit – after she gained the first skillpoint.
She got to level 2 and halfway to 3 before getting fatigued.
The next adventure is to spar with Abi Yat Sen two times.
o.O I think Cosette might lose this…
As predicted, Cosette lost both, but that fulfils the adventure anyway.
And with that part of the quest complete, Cosette reaches Visa Level 1! She probably won’t be coming back, unless we get another opportunity to travel, but anyway.
Argh, she kept getting fatigued before she reached L5, so she wasn’t able to meditate for 2 hours and report in before the trip was over. Maybe she will be going back.
Cosette’s martial arts stuff goes in her room. She keeps rolling wants to get to higher levels and break x number of boards, so she’ll be doing more. It raises athletic skill too, which is handy.
The day after Cosette comes back, it’s Spooky Day! She rolls a wish to throw a feast party; and since we now have a phone to legitimately throw it, why not.
We brought home a fortune cookie machine too; Nessa is the first one to use it.
Fiyero rolled the wish for a costume party, and I thought that would be more fun, so we’re doing that. And yes, he needs an oxygen tank when not scuba diving. Totally normal.
He invites all the simselves and the potential spouses over.
And then we get all these popups. *sigh* everyone loves these boys.
And the simselves all love Fiyero.
Yttrium is a chef.
Cosette a military pilot.
…Wei Keane, who crashed, is a tiger.
LMAO, Eddie Kidd is a ghost hot dog.
Tam has decided to ditch her costume for the weights machine.
Pink is also a tiger. And Silver Racket is the maid party crasher behind her.
Fiyero, another tiger, is boring Mikey the doctor.
Sam and Heather are also doctors, while Flamingo is a private detective.
Cosette has wished to play sim gnubb, so she ropes in a couple of the boys to play with her. Even though it’s raining.
Mikey, that’s not nice! Bad werewolf!
The others agree.
To distract him, Fiyero invites everyone to dance. That old Sims party staple.
Thanks Tam! She did the dishes after they ate 🙂
Everyone agreed it was an awesome party.
We got one trick-or-treater the whole day; it’s Karrie Pincher.
In an effort to ensure Cosette doesn’t wile away her YA time waiting for the poll result, she’s off to China as soon as her moodlet runs out.
I really love the surroundings in China; EA did a great job.
ZOMG, she got the Pangu’s Axe opportunity already! That’s awesome.
Haha, Cosette can’t take her eyes off it as she walks around the corner.
Awesome pic, though Cosette looks rather spaced out.
And now for the Hot Springs tomb.
Visa L3 already, she’s on a roll. This only took about 8 vacation days total. China be easy.
LMAO, they have water taxis in China, apparently.
If you haven’t already (or if you want to vote twice), please vote for Cosette’s spouse here or on boolprop here. I’ll probably play again on the weekend, so you have 6 days to finalise your vote(s).
