5.04 – Love in the Cold
Previously, well, Seaweed worked on his LTW. And his job. The elders pottered around, the townies bred profusely, and not much else happened.
The previous chapter we must have seen Penny on the way to the hospital, for we begin this chapter with the announcement of the birth of her second son. Quinton is a weird name, but hopefully he’s cute.
Befriending nerds Brennan, Giles and Percy has increased Seaweed’s nerd cred, and he’s able to choose another trait; he rolled Night Owl. Works nicely, considering how much of his PI work is done at night.
The maternity ward is busy tonight, Sabrina also had her baby! I love the name Kiana, such a cute but unique name *makes note*
Cosette plays table tennis with Marius at the newly renovated gym, now a three-star venue owned by the Rourkes.
Flamingo is also there, along with Sean.
He was leaving the weight room to go downstairs and play skee ball! I haven’t played with these much, but they’re lots of fun.
Somehow Seaweed got himself stuck in the garden… >.<
Next morning, Cosette goes to buy the final rabbit hole in Barnacle Bay; this is the Criminal Lair, a BB custom one I found on the exchange. It’s an island off the coast, like a real pirate lair!
OMG, I did not know non-kleptos could do this! There was no-one home at the house of Seaweed’s current suspect, and an option to “take for evidence” came up, so I clicked on it.
And then he broke into the house, because he’s a bad-seed PI who doesn’t need to wait for permission to enter (I’m not good at showing it, but he is trying to go the ‘bad’ route).
More bad PI actions; instead of befriending and interviewing this witness
Well, he tries to. Might need to get his mum to teach him how to fight, lol.
So instead he bribes her. Only cost $100, nothing considering how much money they have.
Flamingo loves the magic mirror; though it’s kind of sad that he’s gossiping with a mirror.
And annoying that it’s in Seaweed’s room, so he’s waking up Mr Light Sleeper.
Phoenix really loves the trampoline. I spent a good three sim hours taking photos, trying to show one of the really complicated tricks, but didn’t catch any of them.
Eponine had another baby… 8 days before she turns elder. At least all her children are with the same father, unlike her twin brother.
Penny and Sean gets promotions.
And Cosette maxed Handiness! +1
Good thing Sean is moving up the career ladder, she’ll need the extra cash shortly.
Seaweed is constantly wishing for all the potentials; obviously he’s having trouble making up his mind.
But we’ll fulfil this one right away.
In the military base, since their tryst in the leaf pile didn’t work.
I have been googling, and apparently there’s a flaw with this LTW – only the woohoo spots available in and prior to LN count towards the LTW. So tents, hot tubs, beds, elevators, time machines and rabbit holes. Yes, I learned this the hard way, and had to replay a few sim weeks to ensure the next generation comes along before his parents are Adults.
And then I watched the following autonomous actions:
First Percy gave flowers.
Then they made a snowman together.
Which Percy promptly destroyed.
This made me crazy happy; Flamingo finally uses the reading chairs in front of the fire for their intended purpose! Reading in PJs in front of a roaring fire is one of my favourite things to do in the world.
Possibly I’m working my heir too hard… (and possibly I should take the moodlet manager out of Cosette’s inventory to give to Seaweed)
But Leliana had finally accepted a date, so he had to go.
And immediately rolled this. Can do!
Lol, Sabrina, you just had a baby!
Flamingo has developed an addiction to jelly beans… be careful, Flamingo, you don’t want to end up like Malissa Langurd.
Seaweed brought Leliana home to fulfil his wish. Since their shower woohoo last chapter didn’t count either, they get to finish what they started in the hot tub.
Maybelle had another boy! So far all of Cosette’s grandchildren are boys…hopefully Seaweed can change that.
The potentials answered Seaweed’s love letters: looks like all of them have fallen for Mr Flirty.
Even Giles, who is yet to become Seaweed’s RI. Though we’re about to change that now.
And Seaweed is officially a manipulator. Stupid game.
Another wish; other than Brennan, Seaweed has wished to woohoo every conquest.
I didn’t zoom in quickly enough to catch the points, but that completed Seaweed’s LTW!
Haha, synchronised strides of pride!
His sexual prowess got him a promotion, too! (JK, he completed another case)
I pretty much leave these two on free will now, and they’re very much in love.
He’s looking for clues in the snow…methinks that would be a tad difficult, no?
A third baby boy for Penny. Grandson/daughter count is now 5 and 0.
Seems that our potentials like one another, also. That’s okay, Seaweed cheated on all of you.
This is Seaweed’s next client, the first case where we have to fingerprint something.
…and apparently her daughter has no face.
I tried a whole bunch of things to fix it, eventually had to take her into MC, age her up to a child then back down again. Now she has a face! And a very cute one, at that.
He’s dusting the TV for prints. Love the animations!
While Seaweed was downstairs dusting, these two were upstairs woohooing – you can see over the railing that the room is open to below.
Seaweed bought their kids two cribs, brought both children in out of the snow, then left. This is what the parents were doing that whole time. Seems the townies are pretty horny.
Percy is cheating on both Seaweed and Brennan, with Giles…
Looks like Cosette also got into the jelly beans.
And Penny is still trying for her girl. Seaweed really needs to get a move on. Now that he’s completed his LTW and we’ve decided the poll, we will be working on the spouse.
O.o and Sabrina is a father…interesting. I’ll have to check my SP settings, must be a byproduct of allowing same sex couples to have children through SP.
Since his target is at work, Seaweed went to visit Penny and meet her children. Looks like she has at least one more werewolf in the family.
This is Quinton; he’s a werewolf with Cosette’s gold eyes and Chance’s red hair. Behind him, the child is their first born, Heath (who is also a werewolf with Chance’s hair, and Penny’s eyes). That red hair sure is dominant, Chance was the Gen 2 spouse!
The first one to have Hank’s brown eyes! This one is the youngest, Arthur. He’s human.
Ouch, that look likes it hurts! Cosette has wished to upgrade 20 appliance, so we’re working on that.
Flamingo, he keeps rolling wishes to get so many points at skee ball.
And the triangle of male potentials is complete (four if you include Seaweed).
Right after the popup, Giles asked Seaweed on a date. Then he showed up as a zombie…
The family is often awake into the wee hours of the night.
And the elders are constantly interrupting one another for fun times.
I would not have ignored them if I were Seaweed.
These are all the discoveries he’s made; really in love with his RIs, this one is.
Flamingo finally maxed the fishing career! I’d given up on it, but he kept fishing on free will, so I sold what he caught.
Rad and Sean continue the tradition of simselves wanting the active heir.
Cosette is being very productive on free will; and because she’s completed all the athletics challenges and doesn’t get fatigued, she’s just cranking out the gems.
Flamingo is not so productive. He’s already blue, and has just earned an adrenaline rush as well.
The townies are doing a very good job at procreating; this one house (I think it’s the Caliente house?) has five toddlers!
Penny finally has her baby girl. And I will be changing that name right away, can’t stand misspelled names.
And Maybelle is right behind her. Seaweed needs to get cracking!
He’s working on the other part of his heirship, at least. Up to level 7!
It’s Snowflake Day, so we threw a Gift Giving Party. Seaweed and Flamingo photobombed my picture of the party setup; trying to get across the idea of pulling extra chairs and seats out of storage.
Brennan really liked the view, so started flirting with Percy.
Which didn’t sit well with Giles or Seaweed.
As always at these parties, there are either not enough seats…or maybe too many guests.
Giles and Rad chose to sit in the kitchen to watch…not sure how they can see through the wall, but anyway. Sims logic.
There were too many people to get many presents, but these are the popups the family received.
Oh right, this was the reason Leliana didn’t come to the party. Better than arriving and going into labour, I guess.
I had Seaweed do a scan of the room, and Percy blew it off the charts! Also, Sean, nice one.
Nice one, Seaweed. We didn’t do anything but eat and open presents, but it worked somehow.
Next chapter, you’ll find out who won the poll! And hopefully get cracking on the gen 6 heir.

First off, WOW, my simself is fertile. O.O Triplets. I mean, yeah, she currently has a ton of kids in my game, but they were all singletons! Also, wow, second highest attraction rating. XD Good job simself. But oh my word, Percy’s rating! That’s amazing! I have never seen a rating that high before. I knew I liked Seaweed and Percy together.
FLAMINGO, COSETTE, you two better not pull a Malissa (even if jelly-bean ghosts are pretty). That’s seriously a no-no. I will be very angry.
And that love square between the boy options and Seaweed.. wow. Guess they all have the same taste in guys? Gotta say, they all have good taste at least.

Haha, I have a mod that increases the rate for multiples, since I like them. But still, the triplets rate is like 1%, your simself is pretty damn fertile.
Makes sense that all the boys have the same taste, since they’re all pretty similar – all three boys have the evil trait and are in the criminal career. Seaweed is the odd duck, lol, but his Rebellious trait fits nicely.

I can’t wait to see who won the poll! And congrats on completing the LTW! You made it look so easy! Now Seaweed, babies…. babies….
I am really impressed at how well your town is procreating. That is a tonne of birth notices. Must have been a cold winter lol.
I am in love with all of Penny’s children. The Rourke genes must be very strong for so few of the Zale genetics to show up. They are all ridiculously adorable! XD
That LTW was not easy; I played up until three days before Seaweed’s adult birthday and still hadn’t finished it, couldn’t figure out why. So I went googling. Much easier to finish the second time around, when I knew what I had to do.
The Rourke genes are pretty strong; we’ll see what the kids look like when they grow up a little, maybe they got some Zale features other than hair/eye colour.

So many kids. o.O So many cheaters.
Penny’s kids are sooo cute though!
Seaweed is moving up his career ladder pretty quickly.
I count enough seats at the party, they just can’t find them, is all. The chess table chairs would have been better, in the same room at least.
I know, SP tends to give sims a lot of oops babies, and they cheat a lot. But that’s okay, it’s just sims 😉
