0.3: Glitches, Crashes and Power Outages, Oh My


TS3 2016-12-22 08-50-59-99

Merry Christmas!  I will not have another post up until after the holiday/s, so enjoy the Small’s one more time.   I don’t have anything Christmassy here, so have a Moon over Twinbrook.

Last time, Keely figured out she was a mom, Ace found a girl, everyone had birthdays and Tucker got within spitting distance of his LTW.

TS3 2016-12-16 11-00-10-89

Ace is on the fast track to honor roll.  He usually has his homework done when he gets home from school.

Ace:  This would much easier with a table and chairs.

TS3 2016-12-16 11-01-36-00

Tucker:  It’s past your bedtime, Ace.
Ace:  Dad, there was a movie on tonight I wanted to see.
Tucker:  I’ll tape it for you.  Good night.

TS3 2016-12-16 11-04-33-02

Amalia:  Hey, this no diaper thing is kick ass.
Aric:  I agree.

TS3 2016-12-16 11-05-15-86

Showers and toilets were upgraded because Tucker kept getting the cheap appliance moodlet after a shower.  Now he has to make everything unbreakable again.

TS3 2016-12-16 11-08-25-07

Aric:  Why are you sitting with him?  You’re my twin and best friend!
Amalia:  Sorry, it’s the only open seat in this WHOLE bus.

TS3 2016-12-16 11-12-15-24

TS3 2016-12-16 11-42-00-60
TS3 2016-12-16 11-42-28-99

Another disaster at the Mausoleum.

TS3 2016-12-16 11-42-18-82

Oh cool.  Maybe he can have a girlfriend too!
Aric:  Ewww!

TS3 2016-12-16 11-43-46-07

Meh…she’s not overly ugly.  Aric ignores her by hiding behind their couch and did his homework.

TS3 2016-12-16 11-44-00-31

Aric:  Is it too soon to go home?

TS3 2016-12-16 11-44-22-70

Random picture of Amalia?  I have no clue.

TS3 2016-12-16 11-45-55-48

Turns out the new toilets are already unbreakable, so Tucker makes them self cleaning.

TS3 2016-12-16 11-46-35-80

Ace:  What’s the answer to number 5?
Amalia:  You tell me the answer to 7, and I’ll tell you.

TS3 2016-12-16 11-49-09-16

Keely:   Why hello Cocaine!  I have three kids, so I hope you start breeding soon!
Keely pimps out her kids after work one night.

TS3 2016-12-16 11-49-32-27

Charmaine walked by.  I need to save her to the bin, she’s pretty cute.  She is also a mom, so we will have to check on her kids soon.

TS3 2016-12-16 11-55-32-09

Ace wanted a table and chairs, so Keely’s bonus made it happen.

TS3 2016-12-16 11-56-26-55

The kids had just managed to go to sleep when the bus showed up.  I hope they don’t pass out on the way to or from school.

TS3 2016-12-16 11-59-36-07

Tucker:  If I can walk into a burning building, I would think you were smart enough to leave it.  You need to hurry and get out!

Lorenzo just happens to be Douglas’ (from last chapter) dad.  I hope that doesn’t mean his son is just as stupid.

TS3 2016-12-16 12-00-10-53

Tucker:  If I didn’t have to stop and save you morons, then it would be dealt with already.

TS3 2016-12-16 12-00-57-90

Ace:  I hear you lost your house, Douglas.  I’m so sorry.
Douglas:  That’s okay, I will just be homeless and hungry until I marry into your family.
Tucker:  I saved your house, Douglas.  Feel free to go check for yourself.

TS3 2016-12-16 12-01-49-95

Tucker:  I’m too cool to change clothes after work.  Ooo new plant!

TS3 2016-12-16 12-02-49-12

Ace:  You should really use the table for homework.  It’s so much easier on the back then doing it on the floor.
Aric:  Let me finish this chapter first.  I don’t want to lose my place.

Aric has not realized that he is evil yet.  I hope no one tells him.

TS3 2016-12-16 12-03-10-39

Amalia is..somewhere.  She had an opportunity after school, so maybe it was bug cages.

TS3 2016-12-16 12-03-43-81

Brenna was back at the park.

TS3 2016-12-16 12-04-38-05

She watched a newly elderfied Grozdan play chess, but ran home before Tucker could bring Ace out to visit.

TS3 2016-12-16 12-05-18-23

Aric:  Mother, could you please stop showing your T&A to the neighborhood kids.  It’s embarrassing and gross.

TS3 2016-12-16 12-06-25-96

Douglas:  So, hot stuff, wanna watch the stars with me while I cop a feel.
Keely:  Ewww.

TS3 2016-12-16 12-07-11-27

Tucker had wanted a gym machine but never used it.  He finally had some free time and managed to max his athletic skill.
Tucker:  I should be able to battle fires and knock down doors with ease now.

TS3 2016-12-16 12-08-49-04

Douglas:  I really like you.
Keely:  You’re a good KID.  Now please stop staring at my boobs.

TS3 2016-12-16 12-09-28-32

Douglas:  Maybe if I do my homework and grow up smart, Keely will dump these losers and run away with me.
Keely: That is Mrs. Small to you, buster!

TS3 2016-12-16 12-10-56-67

Douglas:  You’re mom made me pancakes?  I think I’m in love.
Ace:  I think you’re going to have a black eye soon.

TS3 2016-12-16 12-11-17-03

Amalia:  Douglas, you’re so cute.  I can’t wait until we get married.
Douglas:  …

TS3 2016-12-16 12-19-38-04

TS3 2016-12-16 12-20-03-89

Tucker: I will save you both, but I’m pretty sure I was here just yesterday.  Have you not learned anything?

TS3 2016-12-16 12-22-03-46

Laquita (Bayless):  I love veggies!  I hear your mom loves to cook.  Is she home?
Aric:  I love veggies too!  Mom is still at work though.  Sorry.

TS3 2016-12-16 12-22-50-67

Good job, Ace!

TS3 2016-12-16 12-22-55-36

Yes, thanks for that tip.  I already noticed her and gave her a new haircut.

TS3 2016-12-16 12-24-44-64

Tucker got a random pop up.  I guess he did good at one point.

TS3 2016-12-16 12-29-56-77

Ace:  Whatcha doin’, daddy?
Tucker:  Well, mommy has been working very hard so I learned the recipe to Key Lime Pie just for her.

TS3 2016-12-16 12-29-58-00

Ace:  What about everyone else?
Tucker:  Well, as soon as I can afford a new recipe book, I’ll be doing your favorites too.

Tucker did mas his cooking skill and he bought all the recipe books he could afford.

TS3 2016-12-16 12-30-10-50

Ace:  Well, I think you should learn the recipe to my favorite next.
Tucker;  Okay, son.  Just relax.

TS3 2016-12-16 12-30-45-65

Keely is also working on her cooking.  Too bad I can’t have her learn recipes though.

TS3 2016-12-16 12-35-54-29

Keely:  I got the pie after work.  I’ll pay you back in bed.  Hurry up!

Another disaster.  This time at the Military building.  I’m pretty sure the military could have handled this better than a firefighter, but what do I know.   Also, naming fail on my part.  I just realized (I get pop ups for naming immigrants) my caps lock was on.  I need to rename that whole family now.

Woo!  More kids on the honor roll!

TS3 2016-12-16 12-38-53-54

Ace:  So, has your name always been misspelled?
Douglas:  Yeah, ever since I can remember.  The person at the office is pretty stupid.
Aric:  Shh..don’t let her hear you!  She won’t let you marry Amalia!

TS3 2016-12-16 12-39-08-64

Douglas is here to see you!  Go do your homework and talk to him!
Amalia:  No, thanks.

TS3 2016-12-16 12-40-27-30

Douglas:  You guys get birthdays here?  Awesome!
Amalia: *toot*

TS3 2016-12-16 12-40-38-62

I might have to put in a wall and archway over there.  Tucker keeps going to the bathroom and celebrating in front of it.

TS3 2016-12-16 12-45-27-87

Damn, he’s good looking!  He is now a Neat, Artistic, Hopeless Romantic*.

TS3 2016-12-20 14-12-23-96TS3 2016-12-20 14-12-30-13

*I opened my game to figure out Amalia’s 3rd trait and found out why Aric wasn’t acting evil.  Ace is missing his 3rd trait too.  Sigh.  All three kids were given the insane trait.

TS3 2016-12-20 15-03-10-47

Amalia:  Mom will kill you if she comes home to dirty dishes!
Tucker:  I’ll be sure to wash up then.

TS3 2016-12-20 15-02-21-72

Speaking of Keely, she got a promotion!  I had no clue she was doing so well.

TS3 2016-12-20 15-03-17-69

Speaking of a checking up, Tucker had a good day.

Sim Additions!!:

TS3 2016-12-20 14-57-24-70

Ursula and Alyssa, Heroes and Villains.

TS3 2016-12-20 14-58-49-39

TS3 2016-12-20 14-59-03-98

Jacklyn Mendoza, The Mendoza Legacy/ISBI.

TS3 2016-12-20 14-58-35-33

Brennan Skipton, Skipton ISBI and Cristina Winchester, Loralie round out this house.

All links are posted in a previous post and there is a link under the Categories.  Several more were supposed to install, but Sims3packs and my game have never gotten along and they are all listed as invalid in the Sims3pack cleaner.  I will try and convert them to library files, but that might not work.

TS3 2016-12-20 15-12-47-01

I also added Sunny Dee and Ashe Amour along with their two boys Cooper and Umber.  Then I was like, dammit, he’s a Tart!  Umber married Peach in Generation 3.  Oh well.

/End Sim Addtions (for now)

TS3 2016-12-20 15-28-24-75

Douglas:  You don’t have to wear clothes on my account.
Keely:  Isn’t it time for you to go home yet?

TS3 2016-12-20 15-30-49-18

Time for some renovations with Keely’s promotion money, but first we fix Ace’s room up although he still has girl decor due to stealing Amalia’s room.

TS3 2016-12-20 15-32-05-36

It actually works out having the twins together.  Othewise Ace and Aric’s room would look like a rainbow bumble bee.

TS3 2016-12-20 15-33-19-24

The kids all want to learn the logic skill, so this is what money was spent on.

TS3 2016-12-20 15-35-52-14

And they even got that archway.

TS3 2016-12-20 16-07-10-60

There is even a real bedroom for Tucker and Keely finally.  Although I had to sell a plant from the room to fix the wallpaper in the living room.  They literally had $0 left over, but now have $85.

*Game crashed and I never did go back and recolor portions of this room*

TS3 2016-12-20 16-09-02-44

It’s dark, but here is the house so far.  I might have over did it with the flowers, but I did do that before the master was put in.

TS3 2016-12-20 16-06-27-55

Douglas:  I should really tell you my favorite food since I come here everyday after school.
Keely:  Go home.

TS3 2016-12-20 16-11-56-83

Tucker:  Did you notice that the table and chairs got colored?
Amalia:  The whole house went under a drastic change, dad.

TS3 2016-12-20 16-15-39-46

Amalia brushes her teeth instead of going to bed.  She’s not even got a low hygiene bar either.

*Game Crash*   Sigh, it’s the first one of many today.  So, disregard the house renovation.

TS3 2016-12-21 08-09-00-02

Keely and Tucker get makeovers though.  This was so that they can be downloaded.  Check the Small Family Directory to the left.

Keely and Amalia are just asking each other about their day.

TS3 2016-12-21 08-31-57-30

Aric forget where his bed was, but since he was pretty tired, I guess I’ll let this slide.

TS3 2016-12-22 08-41-41-11

The renovation was done again.  They are back to being poor.

TS3 2016-12-22 08-45-55-95

I finally found out who has been holding the easel hostage for the last two weeks.  Since he did finish it, I placed this $19 masterpiece over the tv.

TS3 2016-12-22 08-52-13-22

The kitchen makeover gets a makeover.  The kids are celebrated in potted plants.

TS3 2016-12-22 08-53-43-27

Omg.  Must go have a lookie.

TS3 2016-12-22 08-54-56-07

Even without my input, she’s adorable.  Also, her mom had a baby boy recently that I aged up to toddler.  He looks like Brenna, almost exactly.

TS3 2016-12-22 08-58-52-21

Hair, eyebrows, lashes and lipstick was all that I did.  Oh..and I might have dropped her chin down an itty bitty millimeter.

She’s gorgeous either way.  Traits are: Excitable, Eccentric, Snob and Ambitious.  LTW: Living in the Lap of Luxury.  Favorite color: Spiceberry.

The downfall is that she is bisexual, so hopefully the teens in town don’t snap her up.

TS3 2016-12-22 09-15-21-23

Douglas and family found out now that someone evicted all single sims from huge houses.

TS3 2016-12-22 11-48-58-35

Douglas can now sit on his front porch and spy on his favorite people.

TS3 2016-12-22 09-17-12-09

Tucker:  So, your mom and I were just wondering.  Do you want to give the blowjobs under the desk or receive them?

TS3 2016-12-22 09-17-19-28

Ace:  Oh that’s easy to answer!  *eyebrow waggle*

TS3 2016-12-22 09-17-29-79

Ace:  I can be very flexible..no pun intended.

So, Ace and Brenna are both bi.  I’m really not sure how this is going to work out.

TS3 2016-12-22 10-27-14-19

Tucker:  That formal attire does not adhere to the rainbow theme of this house!  This is utter garbage!  Fix it at once!

Game crashed again, I blame the sims3pack sims I just installed, of which 4 of them were corrupt, but I managed to extract the sim/family from it into a package and leave the extra junk behind..  I deleted my Sims 3 folder and will regenerate a new one without the cc.

Not too long later…

TS3 2016-12-22 11-55-38-89


TS3 2016-12-22 13-41-36-37

Anyway, after redoing my Sims 3 folder, re-installing all my sims 3 store packs, I then deleted the dcbackup folder and now my game runs fast as hell.  Then I reset the world and saved without thinking.  Luckily that did not reset Tucker’s 23/30 sims saved, or I might have cried.

Upon re-load, Tucker spent all his LTReward points and finally got to work helping Amalia get her logic point that has been locked in for a week.

TS3 2016-12-22 13-54-52-98

Keely gets some painting time in before the carpool shows up.  We also show off the couch that replaced the chairs back in the days of Tucker dumpster diving.

TS3 2016-12-22 14-42-07-34

The Twinbrook Town Council informed me that I have severely overpopulated the town (136 sims).  Emergency housing was constructed and plopped down in one of the only undeveloped areas.

TS3 2016-12-22 14-42-43-49

TS3 2016-12-22 14-43-45-64

For under $15,000 you and your family can rub elbows in the super small housing project.  It can fit two adults, a child and a baby.

I even remembered lights for once.

TS3 2016-12-22 14-48-49-61

Jet Chimeree has expressed her displeasure at sharing her driveway.

TS3 2016-12-22 14-53-57-06

In other news, Ace expresses his happiness at sitting on a comfy object.  Poor baby has no clue what true comfort is.  Little does he know, he is sitting on the cheapest couch you can buy.

..and then my power went out for like 2 minutes.  Steaming mad  Do you ever get the feeling that the universe is conspiring against you?

I’m calling it quits for now.  See you next time when we have two more birthdays and Tucker will hopefully survive his weekend and get back to work without anymore issues.

  1. With your games, yes, the universe is definitely conspiring against you. I did have a link to a post on equus-sims on how to extract .sim files from sims3pack, but now the post can’t be found 😦 I’m in agreement about not installing s3p, they are so dangerous. Hopefully things go better now that they are out.

    So pleased to see some Rourkes in your game, looking forward to seeing what they get up to.

  2. So many issues for one update, that is frustrating.
    I love all the other legacy sims you’ve added to your neighbourhood. I love having other people’s sims in my neighbourhood, so fun to see what they get up to while you play.
