Previously, Seaweed was rebellious, Maybelle was artistic, and Penny hunted insects, then aged up to YA.
A warning, this is going to be a long chapter; since Twinbrook is glitching so much, the family is moving after the twins age up to YA, so we’ll do that all in this one chapter.
Since the last chapter ended in the middle of Penny’s birthday party, this chapter begins in the same place; the teens are showing what NOT to do at a party, and doing homework. Flamingo and Cosette don’t care, they’re in love.
Gwen got another promotion. I’ve been playing with university for a while, but never seen so many sims get the social group careers as they have recently. Obviously the townies don’t need to max their social group to get offered the job.
I gave Abbey a little plastic surgery to fix her Face One syndrome. Quite like the result, she looks unusual but still pretty. Would be a good fit for Maybelle.
Heather also got a promotion; she may well top the career herself.
See kids, this is what a party is about; socialising!
Abbey is also bisexual, another tick on the side of Maybelle. Unfortunately, all the teens ran away soon after – damn curfew.
The next day, Maybelle got onto the honor roll!
Graham Zale and Tam got promotions; they may even be police partners, not sure.
And Cosette got promoted, she’s topped the Sports career! This fulfils the Gen 4 requirements, and unlocks television, cell phones, arcade games and treadmills. No computers just yet, but we can make a proper living room.
Though I’ve been trying to increase her jock skill all the time, she’s been stuck at L8 for a while. So we bought the LTR to increase skill, and she rolled Adventurous for her social trait.
Since I’ve never done it, and since she has topped the Jock social group, I allow Cosette to take another job. I think being a Sports Agent after a Superstar makes sense.
Wow, and Seaweed also got promoted this afternoon, well done, guys.
As a couple of people have suggested, I’m going to have Penny turn Maybelle into a werewolf, so we can fulfil her LTW quicker. LMAO, check out Maybelle’s face!
I haven’t actually had an active sim turned before, always born that way or made so in CAS. So these moodlets are new for me.
With no more school and no need to get a job just yet, Penny is studying while the others sleep. She sleeps during the day, while school is on. She has a wish to max the Science skill, so we’re doing that.
Samali has a RI…and his surname makes me laugh. I love my Kindle 😉
Seaweed has rolled this LTW. It could be interesting, I haven’t done the LN stuff much as yet. But I’m not going to lock anything in until his birthday, so we can see what his final trait is.
Flamingo is still around, he’s pretty much at the graveyard catching death fish, catching angelfish at home or sleeping. I’m trying really hard to get him to the top of this fishing career, such a hard slog.
Lols, nice popup. I am enjoying this turning, very nicely done.
Hai Fiyero! He’s dancing while Maybelle sculpts.
And Penny has now maxed the Science skill; it’s so much quicker studying books in the library that using the equipment. But then, not using the equipment means we don’t get the fun samples and testing and such.
Heather and Mikey, sittin’ in a tree… too bad she dislikes kids, I’d love to see their offspring.
Oh Seaweed, really? Your mother is right there. Again.
You so deserve to get into trouble, dude.
He got a time out. And chose to do it outside in the rain…sim logic, lol. That ladder next to him goes down to the treasure basement.
*blinks* I swear Heather was just with Mikey. Apparently she’s stopped playing the field, and is going steady with Greygory now.
I love the music box interactions. So cute! (and those pictures remind me, I should send the family to a festival for another greeting card)
I’m not working Flamingo too hard, see, he still gets to have fun with his wife.
Even if the past sims didn’t appreciate their time machine woohoo.
Sam is going to have a grandchild!
The gnomes like to watch, lol. (oops, walls down!)
I forgot how much I like Rebellious sims, they’re fun to play.
The Winterwolf and Rourke families may be joining in future!
Maybelle is up to sculpting metal! Fiyero’s invention bench was still full, so plenty for her to play with.
Seaweed keeps rolling wishes to ‘befriend Flamingo’. But they never get very far beyond friends, so it degrades quickly 😦
And, of course, there are distractions.
I like her. Almost wish I wasn’t trying to create a legacy genetic stew, so we could keep her.
Abbey also likes Maybelle back, yay. Unlike her brother, Maybelle might just get to keep her high school romance.
Uhoh, grass is growing through the streets. I think I broke the town, with all the travelling. We’re going to stick around until Penny fulfils her LTW and the twins age up, then the family will be moving. Hopefully we’ll be able to stay in a new town longer than two generations!
Mr Mood Swing wanted to play pranks, and everything in the house is already pranked. So he went next door.
Since we already broke the town, I figured I’d allow some more travelling; see how many visas we can get to L3. Penny went with Cosette to France once again; she likes this guy. I forgot to write down his name, so obviously he’s not too important 😛
I remembered to bring Pangu’s Axe this time, so we did Tuatha’s Garden.
And Penny maxed her lycanthropy skill. Reckon I should count this as a maxed skill? It’s hidden, but still has levels.
When we get back home, Maybelle has completed her transformation. Man, she’s an ugly werewolf. Pointy ears don’t suit her at all.
Ghosts are out tonight! Chance is practising ballet on the dance floor.
Phoenix is haunting the laundry hanger.
Penny is trying to be funny. She has No Sense of Humor, remember? Cosette remembers.
WTF kind of outfit is that? No self-respecting Sports Agent wears something like that. And the makeup!
Much better. The glasses are the finishing touch 🙂
Aw, guys, you have a child on the way!
Penny can’t find the fridge…
Still can’t find it. I think there’s an issue here.
I eventually had to replace the fridge, then it worked. This town is definitely getting glitchy. I’ll have to get cracking on Penny’s LTW.
In the meantime, back to China! Cosette has all sorts of wishes around winning sparring matches, so here we go.
And she goes epic.
Seaweed is fishing, with the gorgeous China backdrop.
And he’s maxed the skill. He promptly rolled the Renaissance Sim LTW for the third or fourth time. It could fit, but I’m not locking anything in as yet.
Apparently didn’t take any more pictures until this; Cosette and Penny back in France, and Cosette has a L3 Visa.
I double-checked Penny’s gender preference; she’s undecided. I guess I’ve been working so hard on fulfilling her LTW that she hasn’t really done anything romantic. Poor girl.
Penny is also this close to getting a L3 French Visa herself. Too bad we never seem to get the adventure for the last tomb relic we need. Keep getting the stupid collection ones; find me 3 pieces of copper, 4 amethysts etc etc.
She’s still hunting all over the place; soulpeace is definitely a good haul!
The insects frustrate me, too; check out all the extraordinarily unusual beetles and butterflies she’s found:
Multiples of those, but none of these rare ones. So annoying!
Cosette doesn’t have much to do, so she’s doing skill challenges for kicks.
Finally! This took a full 3 sim days, to get from 73% to 100%.
I sent them straight home, and we assess our loot. This is the family insect collection now, pretty damn big.
Trent and Jaimee are going steady!
And the family is officially worth over $2.1 million. It’s way easier when I can control everyone, all the spouses max their careers.
Maybelle finished the horse metal sculpture on the right. I love the juxtaposition between it and Phoenix’s stone horse on the left.
I didn’t show much of all the travelling, but this is the family’s relic collection; all are complete except for the French and Chinese tomb collections. Stupid adventure board wouldn’t give us the adventures we needed to get those ones.
Miss Neat isn’t so neat when she’s in werewolf form. And dude, what happened to my dining set? I’ve been having some trouble with Store stuff disappearing from the game sometimes; when I try to reinstall, the launcher says it’s already installed, but can’t find it in game. I’m really hoping that all these issues will be fixed when we move; don’t have the same problems in my other save files.
LMAO, this interaction is ‘Show Teeth’.
So funny! Never seen it before, love that I’m still finding new stuff in this game after all this time.
Cosette is a skilling machine. No traits for it, but she’s so quick.
Finding Tiberium is only an ‘okay hunt’…
What are you doing, Cosette? Is that a salute? It can’t be she doesn’t have the hidden trait, according to MC. Maybe it’s an Adventurous idle?
And Sam has her first grandchild! The name Angelica always reminds me of Rugrats.
Cosette got a promotion. This looks to be a different type of career, with abilities outside of work, like a profession, though they go into rabbit holes during the ‘shift’.
Seaweed wants to pull more pranks; here he is sneaking up to Sam’s house to pull a doorbell ditch.
Nothing happened… he didn’t get the wish fulfilled, either.
Oops, Penny kept Maybelle up hunting all night, so she got caught sleeping in class and earned herself a detention.
This is pretty much all these two do when left on free will. So glad I have risky woohoo turned off…
LMAO; Maybelle fainted after seeing Penny turn into a werewolf.
Just as Maybelle got up, Penny fainted from seeing Maybelle turn. I didn’t realise this happened to all non-Brave sims!
This is the progress at the moment, over halfway done!
Strangely, only the sim who initiates ‘hunt in pack’ actually looks like they’re hunting – I had to separately instruct Penny and Maybelle to hunt in order to get this shot.
Cosette looks like such a badass wielding her masterful harvester like a bawse.
Sexy Seaweed in the tub.
Cute painting! This will definitely go in the nursery for the next generation.
Uhoh, Seaweed’s in trouble again. I don’t remember what this was for, possibly skipping work/school?
He doesn’t care, though. And the couch pattern seems to have disappeared again…
The gnomes keep Flamingo company while he fishes; we have quite a few!
And after selling all the mummy fish and death fish in his inventory, he finally made it to L9 of the fishing career!
*sigh* and now he has to sell more fish than the entire rest of his career combined. I have a feeling this isn’t going to happen.
He celebrates his promotion in the usual way.
Man, we are so close to Penny’s LTW! One more hunt should do it.
Even though she’s part of Penny’s pack, Maybelle has time to take photos with her mother.
LOL, nice expression, Maybelle!
Ooh, that lot should definitely be worth more than $550 – glowy fly alone should be over $1k.
…what? Seriously? This thing is rigged!
One more hunt finally pushes her over the edge. LTW fulfilled!
The twins have both wished to be BFFs, so we’re on a mission to fulfil that.
Wish fulfilled! Just in time, it’s their birthday today. And we’re throwing a party.
It’s a small party, only Antonia Greenwood (who left the second she set foot on the lot), Abbey Motley and…Hank Zale! He send Penny a love letter earlier today, so I figured we might try to match them up.
Heartfart is a good sign!
Maybelle gets right to the point when Abbey gets there.
Yay, Abbey accepts the HOTM kiss!
Seaweed is excited about his sister’s success in love. Way to be a creeper, Seaweed.
I’ll save you the romantic spam, but they got up to girlfriends pretty quickly. LMAO, and Cosette fell on her butt at exactly the right time.
Meanwhile, these two are getting along nicely.
And they find one another very attractive. We may just keep him!
But first, it’s birthday time! They’re out of sync, as always, I can never get that right.
Seaweed rolled Flirty! The LTW I chose for him is Master Romancer (woohoo with 5 different sims in 5 different places); this should be fun.
Maybelle rolled Inappropriate. So doesn’t fit her personality, but then, neither does being a werewolf.
Dayum! I think he’s even hotter than Marius. Mum’s eyes and nose, dad’s mouth and chin. Since he’s a rebellious flirt, I gave him a bad boy look.
Maybelle looks…unique. Not ugly, exactly, but not classically beautiful either. Pretty much the opposite genetics to Seaweed; dad’s eyes and jaw, mum’s mouth. Not sure about the nose, it looks different to either of the parents.
Cosette wishes to see both of them succeed in the same career she did. Not going to happen, chica.
Oh man, I forgot it was also Flamingo’s birthday today.
I failed to take a close screenshot, but rest assured, he’s still cute.
And while we were at it, I had Maybelle invite Abbey to move in, then we aged her up also. Somewhere in the time it took for Abbey to move in, Maybelle and Penny both transformed into werewolves…
Abbey has an interesting mix of traits… I can’t remember her LTW at present, I know it’s not career related.
For some reason, the game decreed that only Abbey should graduate the next day. Good thing is, means we get to see the formal wear I just styled for them.
Penny is a bit out there with her taste.
Maybelle is much more old-fashioned.
Grass is taking over more and more of Twinbrook, we need to get out soon!
The family have forgotten how to stairs… (also, the statue Fiyero blew up when Cosette graduated is still gone!)
One last greeting card photo, to see out Twinbrook.
And we wave goodbye to Twinbrook.
Next up, the family move to Barnacle Bay, and we meet the candidates for Seaweed’s spouse!
