0.5: Finally, an Update



So sorry!  I took some time off to play Sims 2 and 4.  Then they gave us toddlers, and I had to play with them too!

The heir poll has closed and a new poll has started.  That vote will go until Generation three is born.

It’s been a little while, so let’s have a sim check.

TS3 2017-02-07 17-25-07-75

The oldest, Ace, is outside of work doing his homework.  He used his teen interaction to fill an opportunity and a wish for a job.

TS3 2017-02-07 17-25-31-00

Aric went to someone’s house after school and ate their soup.  No one else was there.

TS3 2017-02-07 17-25-56-61

Keely and Amalia were chatting, but then Amalia got a random phone call from some NPC she has never met.

TS3 2017-02-07 17-32-25-54

Tucker was off jogging for something to do.

TS3 2017-02-07 17-41-39-16

He then went to paint.

TS3 2017-02-07 17-45-06-80

Brianna Chimree came home after school with the kids.

TS3 2017-02-07 17-45-42-02

The kids were told to do their homework by Tucker, since Keely wishes Ace to get an A.

TS3 2017-02-07 17-46-46-55

TS3 2017-02-07 17-47-40-94

A small house fire was called in right before the end of the day.  No one needed saving, so it was a quick job.

TS3 2017-02-07 17-49-28-99

TS3 2017-02-07 17-52-33-53

The next day went by quietly with nothing of note going on.  Just before the end of the day (as usual), Tucker got called directly across the street for a large house fire.  He was able to save a teen and what might be her little sister.

TS3 2017-02-07 17-57-26-91

Keely has taken it upon herself to ask Aric (repeatedly) “What do they say about me?”   His response confuses me since I have never known her to cheat.  *shrug*

TS3 2017-02-07 18-04-39-98

TS3 2017-02-07 18-12-27-05

The kids can no longer figure out how to feed themselves.  Luckily more food was made and everyone survived the night.

TS3 2017-02-08 06-18-34-03

Tucker:  Hello, everyone.  You may not know this, but the whole family got in trouble and now we aren’t allowed to view anything.  Ever.  We are very sad and have nothing fun to do now.  We hate life.

TS3 2017-02-08 07-56-08-83

Tucker upgraded to the most expensive computers and is now on a quest to make them unbreakable.

TS3 2017-02-08 08-01-16-69

TS3 2017-02-08 08-01-38-34

It happened on a Thursday afternoon on Week 5, Day 5.   Tucker saved sims #29 and #30 with 8 days left until he turns elder.  This is the first time I have ever completed this LTW.  I have had sims top the career, but never actually save 30 sims without ending up moving towns, resetting the town and losing progress or having a glitch.

TS3 2017-02-08 08-06-02-67

I have to agree, lady.

TS3 2017-02-08 08-06-18-61

Seashell Chimeree asked Ace on a date and he said yes.

TS3 2017-02-08 08-07-31-12

They basically just stood around chatting and eventually became friends.

TS3 2017-02-08 08-09-06-03

Tucker convinced Keely to play chess so that she could gain a logic point for an opportunity.

TS3 2017-02-08 08-54-44-86

When the hell did you sneak in a risky?  Omg.

TS3 2017-02-08 09-08-06-72

Well, isn’t this just great.  I hadn’t realized that she was this far along.  I think this is only about 6 hours later than the last pic.

TS3 2017-02-08 09-13-00-94

Amalia:  I don’t want to do homework!
Aric:  Then don’t.  No one’s making you do anything.

TS3 2017-02-08 09-25-36-38

So, she waits a bit and then heads out to swim.  Everyone else in the house is asleep, so we are stuck watching Amalia for awhile.

TS3 2017-02-08 10-08-36-51

Amalia left the pool and sat on a chair.  Then she went to play chess, but had to go pee seconds later.  She took a shower when she wasn’t dirty and cook Mac n’ Cheese when she wasn’t hungry.  After gaining a cooking skill point, she came outside to work out.

TS3 2017-02-08 10-11-06-91

Keely:  Starviiinggg!

Finally, someone wakes up.  Keely is pretty lucky that Amalia made breakfast.

TS3 2017-02-08 10-28-38-52

Keely isn’t alone with her hunger issues and soon there was a fight for food.

TS3 2017-02-08 10-30-38-37

Keely bypassed the food already out and gets pancakes from the fridge.

TS3 2017-02-08 11-07-26-24

Added some new stuff  for the family to use.

TS3 2017-02-08 11-08-47-55

The weekend was  boring.  They spent it eating and doing homework.

TS3 2017-02-08 11-13-17-62

It was so boring, that Tucker took them to the park while Keely was at work.

TS3 2017-02-08 11-14-57-59

TS3 2017-02-08 11-17-51-73

Not much happened.  Amalia chatted with the Whelhoff ugly and then all three kids went from seat to seat sitting for hours.  The boys eventually ended up playing chess for an audience of girls.

TS3 2017-02-08 11-22-51-37

Aric peed himself getting cake.

TS3 2017-02-08 11-23-05-44

Aric:  Lefty told me the toilet was going to suck me in.  I couldn’t go after that!

TS3 2017-02-08 11-24-05-67

A million years ago, key lime pie was made.  Keely finally finds it.

TS3 2017-02-08 11-30-25-88

Tucker spent most of Sunday making the favorite foods of the three kids.

TS3 2017-02-08 11-31-15-73

At the same time, Keely goes into labor.

Ace:  Hey, Brianna!  I can’t hear you over my mom’s screams.  Can I call you back?

TS3 2017-02-08 11-35-05-52

Keely:  My water broke!
No it didn’t!

TS3 2017-02-08 11-39-49-28

Ariadne is an orange loving, natural cooking, daredevil baby.  She also likes Disco and Grilled cheese.

TS3 2017-02-08 11-41-03-80

Daddy Tucker tries to kill the unwanted baby with his stink fumes.

TS3 2017-02-08 11-43-18-22

I think we should be happy that there is no reputation system (that I know of) because Keely and Seashell spent the whole night flirting together when she left work.

I think I now know why Aric is always telling her she’s a dumbass cheater bitch when she asks the stupid, “What do they say about me?” question three times a day, every single day.

TS3 2017-02-08 11-45-46-01

Amalia and Ace finally do something.  Amalia is actually racking up the skill points.

TS3 2017-02-08 11-49-24-90

She then goes in and plays with Ariadne and changes her diaper.

TS3 2017-02-08 11-50-34-71

Ariadne:  I must have nutrient rich green stuff!

TS3 2017-02-08 11-51-04-37

Amalia:  I knew I forgot to do something when I was in here three minutes ago.

TS3 2017-02-08 11-58-59-62

Major fire at the criminal warehouse.

TS3 2017-02-08 12-00-28-45

Amalia shows me how she has 17/20 friends for her LTW, by chatting with someone new and making friends with them.  At this rate, I’ll have to give her a second one when she has her birthday.

TS3 2017-02-08 12-02-22-12

After he puts out the warehouse fire, Tucker heads to City Hall for his next award.

TS3 2017-02-08 12-02-30-54

We add the ribbon to his collection.

TS3 2017-02-08 12-05-49-33

Ace:  Aren’t you going to tell me what to do ?  I need help!
I’m sorry bb, I can’t help you.  You have to do this on your own.

TS3 2017-02-08 12-05-41-52

Ace:  I CAN’T!  HALP!

TS3 2017-02-08 12-08-29-99

I watched him queue up to exit the pool, but instead of getting out right where he was, he swam around in circles and then across the pool.

TS3 2017-02-08 12-09-10-35

By then, it was too late.  Next time, don’t go swimming when you’re tired, dumbass.  *cries*

TS3 2017-02-08 12-10-25-09

Tucker:  You better not copy your brother.
Amalia:  I just woke up, dad.  I’ll be okay.

TS3 2017-02-08 12-16-19-00

Keely passes out when the moodlet manager backfires on her.

TS3 2017-02-08 12-21-56-23

A couple of days later, Amalia came home from school with this wish.

TS3 2017-02-08 12-22-28-64

We took a gander at him.  He’s not too bad.  I’m still holding out for Douglas though.

TS3 2017-02-08 12-25-27-70

Speaking of Douglas, he was at the large house fire that Tucker put out.  He becomes saved sim #32.

TS3 2017-02-08 12-26-49-37

Another day goes by.  We find Aric searching the skies.

Aric:  So, that’s what a star looks like.  Neat.

TS3 2017-02-08 12-35-39-19

He then heads inside and finds the pb&j his dad made him the previous weekend.

Will Amalia and Aric ever grow up?  I swear this is taking forever.

TS3 2017-02-08 13-04-25-46

Fast forward:  It’s finally Ariadne’s birthday.

TS3 2017-02-08 13-10-56-19

Of course she grows up hungry and lonely.

TS3 2017-02-08 13-12-14-77

Nobody feeds her, so she goes off to solve her lonely issue herself.

TS3 2017-02-08 13-15-41-28

Oh crap!  I never saw her get this opportunity.  I wonder how long she has had it.  I let her take Ace’s urn down and turn it in.

TS3 2017-02-08 13-23-08-29

Ariadne has been crying for a bottle for about six hours now.  Finally, someone noticed her.

TS3 2017-02-08 13-22-15-76

It definitely wouldn’t be Aric.

Aric:  Who is making that noise?

TS3 2017-02-08 13-24-09-69

Ace rejoins the family.

Ace:  Thanks for bringing me back, mom.

TS3 2017-02-08 13-28-38-40

Kid:  I’m so scared my hair fell off!

TS3 2017-02-08 13-29-35-80

While Tucker is fighting a large house fire, I fixed the boys hair.

TS3 2017-02-08 13-33-20-40

Four people were saved today.  That brings his total to 36 sims.

TS3 2017-02-08 13-37-23-10

Afterwards, he potty trains Ariadne.

TS3 2017-02-08 13-41-09-61

TS3 2017-02-08 13-41-13-94

Two honor students!   Woo!

TS3 2017-02-08 13-43-09-02

A baby fail.  Boo!

TS3 2017-02-08 13-48-40-49

The next day, Tucker saves two more sims.

TS3 2017-02-08 13-49-29-55

Who am I to stand in the way of something that will save me from more boring fires.

TS3 2017-02-08 13-50-20-21

Then he wanted this, so he is now back to a level one job.

TS3 2017-02-08 14-00-57-71

Tucker:  Yes, your brother was dead in an urn, but mommy saved him.
Ariadne:  Zombie!
Tucker:  No, no.  A ghost.

TS3 2017-02-08 14-07-10-05

This was to be expected.  All she does is chat on the computer.

TS3 2017-02-08 14-08-39-36

Keely has taken to carrying Ariadne around, even to just watch tv.   Other than skilling, Keely does take the most care of her.  Amalia does some of the late night stuff when Keely is asleep.

TS3 2017-02-08 14-12-57-08

Three teens did not come home after school.  Ace was at the school dugout, Keely and Aric were doing afterschool opportunities and never headed home.

TS3 2017-02-08 14-20-34-78

Well, Tucker and two others will be getting old today.

TS3 2017-02-08 14-22-06-22

Ariadne finally does something other than cry and fail.

TS3 2017-02-08 14-24-18-38

It’s Saturday so they had a small birthday for Tucker, Keely and Ace.

TS3 2017-02-08 14-24-45-87

Ace was resurrected two days before his live birthday, which was reset when he turned ghostie.

TS3 2017-02-08 14-25-16-37

Keely:  It’s so weird that I can see through you.  It’s almost like I have x-ray vision.
Ace:  You’re very weird.

TS3 2017-02-08 14-27-23-15

TS3 2017-02-08 14-29-48-63

Old Tucker and Keely are cute.

TS3 2017-02-08 14-36-45-25

Ace gets hair real quick.

TS3 2017-02-08 14-33-57-30

Ace in human form.

TS3 2017-02-08 14-37-54-02

Ace says goodbye and moves into a house across town.

Traits: Hopeless Romantic, Insane, Neat, Artistic and Bookworm.
LTW:  Super Popular.  He had 15/20 before his death.  I never noticed how many he had after he was brought back.

TS3 2017-02-08 14-54-56-06

Ace only got three votes and was not the heir.

TS3 2017-02-08 14-39-56-22

Keely retires in the bathroom, hence the walls down view.

TS3 2017-02-08 14-44-34-06

Amalia had used her teen interaction to get a job.  She got her first promotion that night.

TS3 2017-02-08 14-45-15-91

Playtime with Ariadne.

TS3 2017-02-08 14-50-24-76

Tucker:  Now that you can’t get knocked up, we can woohoo all day long!
Amalia:  Ewww!  Go away!  Someone bash me in the head with a book!   This can’t be unheard.

TS3 2017-02-09 07-18-47-44

It’s a big day later today.  To start it off, Amalia practices writing instead of chatting up strangers.

TS3 2017-02-09 08-25-36-05

Ariadne’s room gets a makeover even though she will be a toddler for a long while yet.

TS3 2017-02-09 07-21-19-25

Aric was outside getting some athletic time in.

TS3 2017-02-09 07-23-17-45

Story progression is turned back on for the first time in a few weeks.  Lots of random stuff, but Zoe and Story was the most notable.

TS3 2017-02-09 07-39-04-43

Tucker wanted to throw a party and see both Aric and Amalia grow up well, so he invited the whole town to the park for  the occasion.

TS3 2017-02-09 07-41-02-31

TS3 2017-02-09 07-41-52-93

TS3 2017-02-09 07-43-11-95

TS3 2017-02-09 07-43-25-20

There was a lot of dancing and lag.  Yawning and booing.  Standing around and peeing themselves.  Eventually Aric and Amalia did make it to their cake.

TS3 2017-02-09 07-44-46-25 TS3 2017-02-09 07-46-11-54

There was no way in hell I was doing makeovers with 40+ people lagging the place up.  So, after they had cake, they all went home.

TS3 2017-02-09 08-01-23-61

There is so much Tucker in that face.

TS3 2017-02-09 08-37-34-91

I was really hoping that Aric would have had more fans, but he did pretty well coming in second.

TS3 2017-02-09 08-21-57-85

Amalia:  Hello, fans!  I win!  Stay tuned for more fun!

TS3 2017-02-09 08-39-45-20

Amalia surprises by getting half of the votes.  Going to be a boring generation since she completed her LTW on her own three days ago.

Births: 2
Twin Births: 1
Passing out:  6 (2)
Self-Wetting: 3 (2)

  1. Oh my god, I cant believe Ace drowned himself! I’ve gotten the oh my ghost opportunity so many times but luckily I haven’t needed it! I look forward to seeing what Amalia does 😉 maybe she can get a new LTW.

  2. Wow, I struggle so much to complete that Super Popular LTW (without using social networking or instruments), and Amalia completes it by herself. She is a worthy heir! I’m with Loralie, maybe you could give her a new one with MC?

    It’s a good thing you’re just tallying and not counting points, Ace and Kelly are out to kill all the points. Drowning yourself, really Ace? I know life is hard when you’re almost a YA and your parents have a new baby, but still.

    • I did have her choose another LTW, I just can’t remember what it was. She is on that computer every waking minute. It’s unreal! I have never completed that one that fast before either.
      I am really liking the tally system. It’s so much better than dragging a calculator out all the time.
      My sims always drown themselves! Morons.
      That unwanted baby…grrr.

      I’m currently in game and in S3Pe learning to blacklist all the gloves in outerwear. Too bad you can’t blacklist stupidity in sims.
