Last time, Story finally topped the business career, thus the family can now have computers and video games.
Generation Seven is finally here! It feels like Six went on for a long time, though picture-wise is was shorter than Four (Cosette).
And we have moved – to Starlight Shores! Frank and Jill made the move too, and were separated from the family into their own starter house (with the twins). Ivory and Helen Mist also came along, as did Velma’s brother and sisters with their own offspring and spouses. They’re no longer in the main family, but we will see them again at parties and such.
Here is the new house; it’s a converted warehouse, which I felt was very fitting for Riff Raff’s personality. The shell was built by Gelina, I just converted it to residential and added some walls.
Overview of the ground floor; all open except for the bathroom in the corner. I chose to keep the metal flooring and brick walls, and used rugs to bring colour instead of putting carpet down. So there’s a lot less of the heir’s favourite colour than has been in previous houses, but I like how it turned out.
First floor; the two heir bedrooms on the right have doors, as does the bathroom in between the kids’ rooms – but the kids rooms themselves don’t have doors. Until gen 7 complete their requirements, we are still abiding by the ‘one room per household member’ rule.
Second floor is just displays of all the relics from Cosette’s adventures. Sarcophagi are up here too, so I imagine there will be some sleeping sims on this floor from time to time.
On the roof we have a little writing studio for Hannah to work in, and skilling items on the open roof area.
Kitchen and bar area.
Lounge area in the middle of the room, with chess table behind the TV and bathroom in the corner.
Reading nook near the nursery area.
Actual nursery area.
Girl’s ‘bedroom’ – there is no door, and it’s open to the void below. Currently hot pink for Magenta.
Similar setup for the boys bed area; spice brown for Rocky.
The rainbow bathroom between the boys and girls bed areas.
Velma and Story’s bedroom.
Riff Raff and Hannah’s bedroom.
Relic display level.
Rooftop skilling area.
Hannah’s writing studio.
All the greeting cards safely made the trip.
As did the ghosts; they’re now inside, because I could only fit a 40 x 40 lot in the space, and there’s not much room outside. Below each set of remains is a decoration to honor the heir’s personality/career.
Upon unpausing, the first thing the teens choose to do is homework, right out on the driveway.
Riff Raff gets to work decorating the blank walls.
Story wants to max athletic, so she pumps iron. Rocky is now done with his homework and works on martial arts.
Here is the view from the roof; the lot is located close to the centre of town, on the corner of Los Sueños Strip and Via Del Sol (near the billboard).
Riff Raff now has his very own bar to practise mixology.
He celebrated by making some skill drinks.
Not very well; more practise is needed!
Magenta lit herself on fire at the invention table, but she can’t access the shower, because the inventing table is in the way!
Momma Story to the rescue! (and then we moved the table to allow access to the shower)
It took a few days before I remembered we had more to do than skill. Riff Raff goes to meet his betrothed.
Attraction thought bubble, good start!
Not sure what conductors have to do with her star sign.
But it’s compatible with Riff Raff’s, yay!
Meanwhile, Roxie gets a very out of character job, and I realise I forgot to put in the movie studio for her. Fixed that right up!
Hannah and Riff Raff have progressed to gossiping.
However, a mean high five brought out his hot-headed nature, and he learned that Hannah is evil.
She then decided he was being inappropriate, even though he didn’t do anything. He’s literally in the same spot as the previous picture. Weirdo sims.
LOL, Frank gets a very random job. No bot workshops in this town, have fun with that career.
He did waste no time getting married, though. And their name reminds me I need to change the marriage name to prompt, so we can keep track of the Rourke spares easier.
Back at home, Magenta is on an upgrading spree to make all the new plumbing self-cleaning.
Rocky is meditating, since he’s fatigued from all the block breaking. Maybe it’s the lack of disciplined trait, but this skill seems to take forever to build.
And a gift.
Leads to amorous hugs!
However, further flirting attempts bring this face.
And then he’s kicked out. Good one, Riff Raff.
I missed the scary face shot, but Rocky laid a trap on the computer, and Magenta fell for it. Rebellious teenagers on a mood swing, so much fun /sarcasm.
Yay, much better career for Roxie! (that’s her LTW, in case you forgot)
Oops, guess I should have put more beds into the spouse house.
Helen also moved out; guess she and her mother don’t get along so well. She’s already a YA, but Rocky will be aging up in a few days.
Riff Raff is up to L8 of the Rebel social group! His new trait is Artistic.
Ghosties are out! Flamingo stole the rocking chair; Seaweed and Phoenix are unimpressed.
Story got a raise; the business career seems to have so many fun opportunities.
Billy starts up again with the many romantic interests.
Flynn, on the other hand, is not having much luck in the romance department.
Oops, and we better grab up Hannah before she’s taken!
Riff Raff quickly asked her on a date. Then used one of his new rebel interactions on her: show gizmo.
With his new social trait, they’re now both Artistic.
This time, she accepts the flirt.
And the HOTM kiss.
And then they go steady. That should keep her out of mischief for a while. Padme is being a creeper and wondering what could have been.
Jill (Frank’s wife) is throwing a party. Maybe we can see the twins!
But first, he practises mixology a bit more. I love the facial expressions with this skill!
The ‘party’ is just Riff Raff, Frank and Jill. Riff Raff thinks looking out the window is the best option.
But Frank wants to talk.
Here are the twins! They both have Frank’s black hair and Jill’s high cheekbones. We bought a couple of baby swings for the house, so they poor tired toddlers could sleep.
Meanwhile, Magenta maxed the inventing skill!
She planted a whoopee cushion in celebration.
Ivory snatched up Hannah’s old RI.
And then went steady a second later.
I forgot Childish sims could play tag! Rocky and Magenta both wished to make a friend, so they befriended each other.
Magenta then autonomously played in the sprinkler, and made some adorable faces.
We’ve also started on the gem collection; conveniently stored in the foundation, so we have plenty of space to lay everything out. These are just the cut ones that Cosette and co found in their travels. Velma’s new task is to cut all those uncut ones Penny found during her werewolf hunts.
See you next time!
