    The Get Famous aspirations are complete and these two both placed their tiles on Starlight Boulevard! Ready now for some beach life and hopefully an escape from all the paparazzi.

    What a cool challenge! I've gotten through some pages of 2020 and then went to read this year's thread first. I really like all your storytelling and exploring the worlds. Now I'm tempted to try myself but I have only 4 worlds, and I don't know it I'd be able to stay interested for a whole year without new content to explore and have goals with... maybe sometime later. Who knows, perhaps once I complete my current legacy that heir can go do it - would definitely give me enough time to collect packs :D And I'll definitely try to practise paying closer attention to the sims personalities and faces in my normal game.
    Also @permanentrose I saw that your signature family has gotten another little one, they look really cute!
  • BelalucinaBelalucina Posts: 834 Member
    Hi @Fukurō nice to see you checking out the challenge. It is fun. 🙂 You could always try a 4 month mini challenge haha. Good luck on your current legacy. I've never finished a legacy myself, I always get stuck around gen 3. I'm hoping I'll be able to get further with June's kids.

    Thank you! There's still lots of time as I am on long lifespan of "gen 0" (starting sim as now-toddler), sooo... But it's another challenge I have always wanted to do so will hopefully come back to whatever happens. For certain it needs ages to do like this, but I think it is better than rushing and then being disappointed and starting over like my last 3 attempts :grimace:
    And for sure I will have loads of time to collect packs for each generation!!
  • BelalucinaBelalucina Posts: 834 Member
    @Fukurō I also like playing with long lifespans :)

  • FukurōFukurō Posts: 18 Member
    I really like it now that I've tried - and this challenge certainly is like extra-long lifespan :D
    Also, Yaaay I am now a member and could post images and such... will have to do some thinking. :sweat_smile:

    @Fukurō yay, congrats!

    @Belalucina congrats on finishing the aspiration! Can't wait to see your beach life stuff!

    @Fukurō even with only a few worlds, you are welcome to join and there's still a lot of gameplay and aspirations you can explore!

    I've never played with eco pack properly before, so I'm excited to do the aspirations and gameplay! Starting with the fabricator one.

    Just crafting away and watching Maeve hit milestones. Once Maeve can crawl and pull herself to stand, I plan to age her up.

    I guess avocados make suspicious fizz lol...

    Welcome to the beach house!
    When I first loaded them in their house, this guy, whose name I can't remember, decided to pop one of those confetti things. It's a nice welcome to their new home I guess lol. June's hair is cc. I can link it tomorrow if anyone wants it.

    Tan - check.
    So just a bit of a background info on where everyone's at. June and Steve obviously became superstars, but decided the fame was a bit much and weren't sure how it would affect the kids. Moving to Sulani was a way to get away from it all, though a few paparazzi have managed to find them. Steve will try to keep acting here and there to pay the bills, but ultimately his goal is to become an astronaut. Jogging on the beach will be a good way to prepare for that. He still does comedy in his spare time of course. And June eventually wants to work in her restaurant once the kids are a bit older. They are both doing the Beach Life aspiration for now.
    07-04-23-8-37-04-PM.png

    The kids are all out of school for the summer so really it's just having fun on the beach and soaking up all the sun. So far April is a book lover and creative. She spends most of her free time reading, but she has gotten a part time job as a lifeguard for the summer. She is also doing the Beach Life aspiration. She has a learning and discovery hobby and dreams of excavating the jungle of El Selvadorada one day. She also loves music.

    August is a child of the ocean and loves all things water. He hopes to meet a mermaid and make friends with some dolphins while they are in Sulani. He also loves food and music, and I think he somehow has a hidden romantic trait, because he sometimes gets a lovelorn moodlet, even though he's a child. He must have inherited it from Steve, who has that trait. So maybe his romantic side will come out a bit more once he's a teen. For now, he'll just focus on making friends. Of his siblings, he gets along best with April. I had given him the mohawk hair, but decided it didn't really suit him. It suited October much better.
    07-04-23-1-47-33-PM.png

    Speaking of October, or Toby for short, he's a big goofball. He's also very active and social and just wants to make a lot of friends. He's currently going through a Bear phase and everyone's just amazed he's not dying of heat stroke in his bear costume.
    07-04-23-8-10-41-PM.png

    The twins, Nova and Ember, have somewhat of a difficult relationship, but they do love playing together with their older brother, Toby. So far the twins are both aggressive, but Nova loves books and definitely has more of a sweet and silly side. Ember is very independent and will probably be a loner when he ages up. He hates being held and prefers to just do things on his own.

    07-04-23-2-02-27-PM.png
    07-04-23-2-02-56-PM.png

    And the dogs are doing great, but are having to get used to all the sand. Caroline got a little confused and wasn't sure where she was supposed to go potty. It's okay though, she figured it out.

    Here is June's hair if anyone wants it. https://wild-pixel.tumblr.com/post/186025332097/summer-in-sulani-a-female-cc-stuff-pack-by

    Coconuts and a very eventful Kava party.
    Judging by their faces, the Kava was not very good...
    07-05-23-9-29-52-PM.png

    One of the guests caught on fire. Maybe she shouldn't be trying to do other people's laundry. June rushed to the rescue, of course. Flora and Babs were still not amused.

    Well this load of laundry must be cursed, but even with two fires, June was able to save the day twice and the Kava party was a hit! Though I'm still not sure why Steve just stands there when he's on fire...
    07-05-23-9-38-49-PM.png

    In other news, April, who if you remember once walked in mid air as a toddler, has now learned to walk on water. She just really wanted to ride that boat...

    ETA: I realized that Flora is missing some cc in my game and I'm not sure what happened to it. I will have to look into that next time I play.

    Lots of beachcombing, festivals, and grilling.
    Steve started yet another fire...
    07-06-23-1-41-41-PM.png

    April got to be the hero this time.
    07-06-23-1-42-14-PM.png

    I got a mod that adds beach themed festivals like they have for City Living and Snowy Escape. So they've been getting out and doing lots of fishing and cooking.
    07-06-23-2-06-54-PM.png
    07-06-23-7-45-49-PM.png

    August got really sad because he went fishing and then ate a fish. :D
    07-06-23-7-51-19-PM.png

    These two have no guilt fishing.
    07-06-23-7-52-21-PM.png

    August would rather be friends with the fish.
    07-06-23-1-47-19-PM.png

    These two were not getting along. August got bit because he was teasing her, but look at that sweet smile she gives him after she bites him. Lol!
    07-06-23-1-58-05-PM.png
    07-06-23-1-58-09-PM.png

    I think this one will be another child of the ocean. She loves the water.

    @Ellupelluellu lovely shot of babs!
    @Belalucina I'm loving the beach pics, your family is having a blast.

    Sorry I haven't been posting, been busy and not feeling super great so haven't been inspired to open up my game but I do want to finish up these aspirations at some point!
  • BelalucinaBelalucina Posts: 834 Member
    @Ellupelluellu love Babs' new look and that great shot with the city in the background! She looks good in green.

    @permanentrose hope you are feeling better soon!

    I hope to make an update today. I've been super busy!
