    At least Fiona didn't make Haruo a eunuch. That post made me chuckle.

    I added to it... :D I figured instead of making multiple small posts...with one or two pictures (as I play, I get ideas for commentary) which I unfortunately do; I figured, why not add to one post with pictures as I go along through my "test-save" gameplay (...and insert small sarcastic commentary with regards to those pictures...). :lol: So keep coming back to the post...(for the day). :D My next post will probably be tomorrow. :D ...or maybe not...

    River: (groggily half-asleep) "Honey..."
    Haruo: "-wha?"
    River: "Baby..."
    Haruo: "'s too early..."
    River: "No...Baby...he's awake...and crying..."
    Haruo: "I didn't hear anything..."
    River: "You're deaf...go and change him...please?"
    Haruo: (groans).
    Haruo: "I'll do this, but I'm going right back to bed again...oh my aching back...I hate this bed..."
    Watcher aside: "I remember much...I think I'm having PTSD."
    Haruo: "Now listen, rugrat...I've changed you, snuggled you and fed you... now let Daddy have some sleep for the next six hours..."
    Watcher: "It's three in the only get three more hours...then your *** better be awake"
    Haruo: "Oh for the love of..."
    River: "Thank you, honey...I love you..."
    Haruo: (groans) "Don't mention it..."
    River: "I'll thank you more tonight."
    Haruo: (thinks) oh Watcher...I'm not sure if I'm ready for another one...( diaper-change) Just let me get through this first one...

    I haven't decided if I like this particular mansion or not. I mean for regular game play I love it,
    but it just doesn't give off Gracey Manor vibes I might scrap my first chapter and restart.

    @Nikkei_Simmer Sorry to hear about your continued computer issues... but glad to hear and see that you are still able to play, even in a somewhat diminished capacity.
    @texansky Congrats to the couple! Your wedding venue looks great so far! Oh and Morida's hair is here, midway page 8:
    @Brandontaylor Thanks for the comments. You're right that Morida doesn't seem at all interested in marriage.
    @GraceyManor Great beginning to the story! You capture the feeling of foreboding very well as the characters approach the mansion. BTW the mansion itself looks great.


    The days flew by, and it was time for Cailan to become a toddler. This time it was his dad, Seamus, who did the honors and brought him to the birthday cake to transition.


    The O'Connell family and friends gathered to witness Cailan's transition.


    Here's Cailan. Isn't he adorable?
    In the bin he went.


    Shauna spent her last days of maternity leave teaching Cailan to talk.


    As the youngest of a busy household, Cailan spent a lot of his time with the IF doll he was provided.


    After Aiden, who was supposed to be grounded, snuck out, he did his homework under a tree.


    However, he and Alice, Lord Edmund's daughter, were caught by Seamus, who had been at the school presenting a check.


    Seamus' look could melt steel. "I'll deal with you when I get home," was all he said.


    There was a party at Seamus' biggest rival's house. The Mithrilens were feuding with the O'Connells for control of the town. Even though Seamus and Fintan were bitter rivals, the rest of the family, however, tried to make amends.


    It turns out that the O'Connells weren't the only family with a new baby. The Mithrilens had just days earlier welcomed a daughter called Guinevere.


    The austere-looking Aine, Guinevere's mother, tried to calm her daughter down.


    Brien brought home a girl from school called Morrigan O'Reilly and instantly wanted to befriend her.

    Thanks! I can't take credit for any of the lots in my game.
    I do like that Mansion but it isn't working for what I need(not big enough)
    So I am going back to the one that was built for me. And I have used many times.
    I'll be redoing my first chapter.

    "I feel kind of bad missing my friends halloween party." Sarah said as she uncrumpled a piece of paper.
    "You are corrodingly invited to spend Halloween at this most haunted mansion." She rolled it back up and
    continued. "Today marks 100 years since the family of Gracey Manor disappeared..I always wanted to take
    a look inside." Her brother Thomas, couldn't care less about any challenge, all he wanted to do was to meet
    famous people.

    "Alrighty folks this is the place." The driver said as she parked the taxi.
    "What time should we set a pick up?" Sarah asked as she struggled to get her bags.
    "That won't be necessary, you see I always seem to drop people off, but they never need a ride back."

    Sarah: Would you take a look at this place.
    Sarah and Thomas stood in awe as they gazed up at the old manor, even being 100 years
    old, the home still held its charm and beauty, yet Sarah couldn't help but feel something sinister
    lurking within its walls.
    Sarah: I think someone is over there. Let's go.

    Grave Digger: Who's there?
    Thomas: We're here for the party! Surprise!
    Grave Digger: Party? What party?
    Sarah: We received an invitation..
    Grave Digger: Shh, please don't wake them.
    Please oh please though they're all deceased, I beg of you on bended knee.please
    oh please let them rest in peace for once they start they never cease.

    Grave Digger: You see here lies good old fred, a great big rock fell on his head.

    Grave Digger: And at peaceful plant, lays brother Claude, planted here beneath his sod.

    Grave Digger: As the first lady of Opera, Haunting Harriet! Searched for a tune but never
    could carry it.

    -Harriet belches a loud opera note, breaking windows close by.
    Grave Digger: Poor Cousin Maude who never awoke, the night her dreams went up
    in smoke.Rest in peace cousin huet, we all know you didn't do it.

    Grave Digger: Mary wrote mysteries with masterful quill..

    Grave Digger: not knowing the words of ink could kill. So please
    oh please let them rest in peace for once they start they never cease
    and right before your very eyes.

    Grave Digger: As the moon climbs high over the dead oak tree,
    spirits arrive for the midnight spree.

    Grave Digger: Creepy creeps with eerie eyes start to shriek and harmonize..
    Grim Grinning ghosts come out to socialize!

    Thomas: Enough with the freak show, I want famous peoples.

    Ghost Host: Welcome foolish Mortals.Ah, Lady Sarah...Thank you
    for accepting our invitation.
    Sarah: Thank you for extending it.. Mr?
    Daniel Gracey: Daniel, I shall be your host, your ghost host.
    Thomas: You're very creepy okays?
    Daniel: And who might you be?
    Sarah: This is my brother, Thomas.
    Sarah grabbed Thomas by the collar and yanked him forward,
    forcing him to face his host.
    Daniel Gracey: Now, if you would follow me.

    Daniel Gracey: Now if I may, a few requirements while visiting our
    Sarah: Of course.
    Daniel: Within these walls are your fears and your frights.Face them
    all bravely, to survive the weeks.. For if by sunrise on all Hallow's Eve,
    you fail the is endeavor, then you two friends must stay here forever.
    Ghostly Voices: Dun dun dun!
    Sarah: So we just have to survive the next few weeks until Halloween
    in this haunted mansion?
    Ghostly Voices: Dun Dun Dun!
    Ghostly Lady: That's too many dun duns!
    Daniel Gracey: Do shut up, both of you!
    Ghostly Voices: How rude! We'll just take our departure.
    Daniel rolled his eyes as the voices trailed off.
    Daniel Gracey: I do apologize, they don't get many visitors.

    Sarah: "I really love these portraits." She said as she eyed the walls,
    each portrait portraying a spooky scene from years ago.
    Daniel: Your eyes may deceive you as the spirits respond to your
    sympathetic vibrations.
    Thomas: Where is the famous people room!
    -The room begins to stretch and moan, as the photos take on
    ghastly shapes.-
    Daniel: Is this haunted room actually stretching? Or is it your imaginations?
    Sarah: You know what? I just noticed...This room has no windows and no
    Daniel: Which offers you my chilling challenge!

    The lights flickered off, leaving the group in completely darkness,
    as the moans and groans filled the room.
    Daniel: To find a way out!11
    Sarah: Wait a minute?

    Sarah: Do you mean out of the room or out of the house?
    Daniel: You're kind of killing the moment...I meant out of the room.
    Sarah: Oh...continue then.

    Mary jumps out from the walls, screaming in Thomas's ear. He
    stumbled back letting out a blood-curdling scream.
    Thomas: I have two questions: 1 where did he go? and 2: What is your
    problem ok?

    Sarah: Thomas, don't you see this is not just some halloween
    event...This place is actually haunted...And I think they may need
    Thomas: Forget helping dead people, I want famous people!
    Sarah: Let's split up.

    Finally got around to making the family trees...
    Haruo and River's family far...
    ...and li'l Christopher... :D
    Satoshi's side of the family... with Satoshi - brother of Yasunobu (Haruo's father); Satoshi's ex-wife...(but still hanging around...for Torao's sake) Helena Griesen and Torao Griesen-Chikamori. (Satoshi and Helena may get back together) - no Molly this time since Molly shacked up with Connor Frio. :p

    Low/Mid-level graphics or not, these make me go "Awwwww..."
    Just the look she gives Haruo... :D ...and of course...lil'Chris...
    Christopher: "Da-da...da..."

    Cornelia: "The Watcher is frustrated..."
    Buster: "The Watcher is angry..."
    Iqbal: "The Watcher is hurling big rocks from sky; make Sims very scared and unhappy"

    I finally got Episode 2 of The Perfection Genetics Challenge, Generation 2 loaded to YouTube. It's there for you to watch now.

    If you've been watching this series of videos you'll know that Cindy is the first heir and is now grown up and married and about to start having her babies. She got married in Episode 1 of Generation 2.

    In this video Cindy's two older brothers get married. They are Gary and James. She has one more older brother who is back in Moonlight Falls and we will probably see his wedding in some future episode. Or maybe I won't have a wedding for him at all. I've sort of got an idea of who he might marry if he does get married.

    Anyway, Episode 2 opens with James and Carla and they get married and then Gary and Donna get married.

    During Generation 1 there were a few videos, I think about 3 of them, that were devoted to Donna and her household. The population of Mountain Lake is made up entirely of Sims from Donna's household and Sims that travelled from Moonlight Falls with Cindy and her husband Bill.

    I plan to move lots more sims from Moonlight Falls to this world that was made by @Rflong7. This is why I've removed the sims that came with the world.

    I did find one problem with the world that wasn't obvious at the beginning. It doesn't have a hospital. There is a lot that is labelled as a hospital but the building on it is a school.

    So, this video starts with 2 weddings. They are short weddings. We just see the ceremonies and a bit of cake eating and some dancing before everyone goes home. Things don't all go smoothly at the weddings as it turns out to be the night of the full moon and zombies are about. And some paparazzi turn up, as usual. Two sims discover they are pregnant at the weddings too. So this leads on to us monitoring their pregnancies and the things they get up to while pregnant. I keep the pregnant sims at Donna's house and that's the active household. I want to control how many babies they have and what they do.

    I think it's a busy and fun video to watch. I hope you enjoy it.

    Happy Simming

    Haruo: "Yeah, Dad, we got a really good deal on 15 Summerhill Court."
    Haruo: "No, Dad, we haven't started building on it, yet. we're not entirely financially stable yet. Maybe a few more gemstones...yet..."
    Haruo: "Mortgage rates are sky-high right now...and with the potential for market correction, I don't know if it's the right time to be borrowing. Lumber costs with the U.S. stacking costs for importing...are making it so that mills can't offload their excess lumber - so they're producing less and charging more. So give or take a couple years...then maybe River and I can start building our dream home."
    Haruo: "Yeah, Dad...I want lots n' lots of grandkids. Surrounded by family... We're working on it. There's four bedrooms in the house we got now, not including our own, so no worries there. HA HA HA...Dad...stack 'em four to a room, yeah...riiiiight..."
    ...oh dear...another baby bump?
    ...the older one. Even geniuses have trouble with math problems.

    Another update. This build was quicker than the other one. I made it not as colorful as the other build. This one's kind of plain, but that's what the bad guys prefer.






    Unfortunately I'll be super busy with work soon, so I may not have time to write a Simlit.

    Hey everyone. <3 It's slowed down a bit over here... :confused:

    I just wanted to make sure y'all are doing ok. :kissing_heart: I know for me it's just been busy lately - it always is the months leading in to the Holidays it seems - but we're doing generally well as a family. :)

    Speaking of being busy. ;) (Or rather, getting busy. :lol: ) I've been working on my 2022 Christmas story in between the busyness of life and I hope y'all will tune in when I debut it on Dec 1st. :blush: (I may debut it early, like the day after Thanksgiving :p , if I get it all done in time. That's for you @bekkasan :kissing_heart: )

    Anyway, I wanted to show off a picture of the main character. Y'all might recognize her because she's a @CravenLestat creation. :star:

    Everyone meet Malai. :blush:


    I also have to share another picture of her momma, Nin. I just think she looks so so pretty! <3 I'm still in awe over how well she turned out. :star:


    But yeah, let me know how y'all are doing. Hope you get some simming time in. ;):kissing_heart:

    Hi everyone!

    I have not been so active, still got my cold over here for 3rd week now,
    but finally feeling back on the mend, the coughing is the only thing I had but
    annoying during the night when wanting to sleep.

    I hope to be back in the game this weekend to play a bit before my final course starts on monday.

    Edit: My blog should be updated with these by the time you see this! (link in my signature).

    Aw doody. Dropbox is currently undergoing maintenance, so I can't upload right now. But I have more conversions for my CC blog and I wanna show them off so ima do that.

    I converted an alternate outfit of Juliet's from Lollipop Chainsaw. The one where she is dressed as her mom. It has a really cute vintage vibe.



    The scarf isn't included. The outfit does have a scarf in the game, but I took it off as I'd rather it be an accessory. I haven't gotten around to it yet, but I will also get that converted at some point. And this outfit comes with cute shoes that I will also definitely convert at some point.

    And I also decided to dabble a little bit in non-adult female stuff. :lol: Shocking, I know. So I converted these slides from Splatoon! They're unisex and adorable. And the green and black strap is actually a stripe pattern that somehow the stars aligned and it worked perfectly to give it a black border. Isn't that cute? Tell me it's cute! :lol:

    The realistic feet are from GrueSims so kudos to them. They'll will be credited on my blog, don't worry. :3 Step on toes, I will not! :lol:

    I have a couple other things too. Some BelaloAllure stuff I just have been too lazy to upload (whoops) and a new swimsuit from Santos Fashion Sims as they recently stopped creating for The Sims 3 and I was sad. :lol: Luckily, I have the tools and the knowledge to convert their stuff, so it wasn't a total loss for me. :tongue:

    Anyway, I'll be sure to update here when I have them uploaded and posted. :3

    Put the 1K Kurasoberina skins (thanks for pointing them out to me, @Emily4331 ) in...for River and Bebe...and my game seems to behave.
    EA Skin
    KB Primer (1K) much better.
    But so frickin' weird as...Bebe is supposed to be older than River in canon...Sims-lore.

    I'm not going to do the Asian skin that I was using before even if it is better made, I'm wondering if there is a low-resolution Ephemera ESkin Asia. The only one that I know of is high-resolution. CMAR Asian Faces always goes to black when I try to put the skin in, don't know if there's something wrong with it.

    River: "Um, I didn't know that we had guests..."
    Chris: "Yeah, Mom, Kaelynn wanted to come over and get help with her homework..."
    River: "O...K..."

    River: "Honey, making some food for the kids and for our unexpected guest?"
    Haruo: "Yeah, something like that...peanut butter and jelly sandwiches...I figured it was the easiest thing to make and the fact that the Langeraks never mentioned anything about any peanut allergies when I talked to Dustin regarding Kaelynn's dietary needs." IHNDfkU.jpg

    Is it just me or is River not too terribly impressed at the imposition of unexpected guests into their family? The look on her face. :lol:

    @Nikkei_Simmer You could try finding face overlay makeup to help a sim look more Asian without needing an entire skin around it.
