    @emorrill How is that coming along? It's in the Sims 3 thread right? I love reading stories on that thread as well

    @Demery27 Very well thank you. <3 Yes, I post my new story chapters in the main Sims 3 Play and Share thread: "What Happened in your Sims 3 Game Today?" :)

    I also have a thread for my latest story in the Sims 3: Stories and Legacies Section. :) And I also have it on my Blog. :lol: I like to have many different areas for people to read. It attracts more readers. :blush:

    Thought I'd finally get around to doing that Parker update :#
    Parker Family, Week Two

    Thanks to a mixture of testingcheats and the Sim Blender, Carolyn and Martin (okay, I helped :p )managed to teach the triplets their skills. Potty training is incredibly boring, it seems!

    410LI7H.jpg

    Oliver thought it'd be a good idea to eat cat food. Um, maybe not, Oliver...

    zlK8kG6.jpg

    Then he decided to go and sleep on the cat bed. Carolyn didn't really know how to tell her son that he was actually a Sim rather than a cat...

    cjkrX5H.jpg

    In spite of having triplet toddler boys, Carolyn and Martin couldn't help wanting to expand their family. So, they got right down to it.

    4ZZ4ZIR.jpg

    Uh oh... three screaming boys... you really sure about adding to the family, guys?

    kt2YXOR.jpg

    Martin and Carolyn breathed a huge sigh of relief when it came to the boys' birthday.

    ywK5YlM.jpg

    They decided that they wanted to send their kids to private school. The first visit wasn't successful, so I exited without saving and went through it again, with a little help from motherlode... hey, ya gotta do what ya gotta do!

    YIqM7Oc.jpg

    The second attempt was much more successful!

    l4WXN7u.jpg

    We all know that Carolyn absolutely loves Music and Dance, and even when pregnant she was able to exercise.

    4qvXP6z.jpg

    Naturally, the boys were a little freaked out when their mom went into labour.

    8bGOEjD.jpgThis time, Carolyn gave birth to triplet GIRLS! She named them Clara, Alice and Hazel. Clara's colour is pink, Alice's colour is green and Hazel's is yellow. Similar to the boys, Clara and Alice both have skintone #2 (like Martin, Oliver and Joseph) and Hazel is skintone #1 (like Carolyn and Daniel). Martin decided that it would be an ideal time to study parenting.Ay3Bv8f.jpg

    Oliver wasn't a great student, at first. He finished the week with a D grade. For the rest of the weekend I kept getting notifications about it, and that if things got worse the social worker would pay a visit. It was rather annoying, to say the least!

    JflUmv6.jpg

    I love Carolyn's face here :D:D:D It's like she's finally realising what having six kids entails...

    CHNFq0q.jpg

    I may have mentioned this before, but all the boys like Music and Dance just like Carolyn does. I'm not sure about the girls, though.

    dGQZ9JG.jpg

    Late one evening, Oliver thought it would be a good idea to get down to his homework. He'd felt pretty bad when he'd received that D grade, and realised that he really want to do well at school.

    0PCnZOF.jpg

    Carolyn managed to maximise her Music and Dance enthusiasm. Congratulations!

    Th2g1mo.jpg

    Soon, the girls became toddlers!

    brN77bW.jpg

    Ohhh, Clara and Hazel are so adorable!

    m22HdTx.jpg

    Life was going pretty well for the Parkers. The boys loved playing cops and robbers.

    FTSFK8g.jpg

    Alice loved playing with toys. Sometimes, though, she enjoyed banging the teddy bear on the floor. Ooooookayyyyyyy...

    M1j6JgI.jpg

    ***

    That's where I got to with the Parkers!

    Newson Household
    I put the kids in a nice 3 Bedroom and 2 Bath home then I created more rooms so that all the siblings have their own rooms. I went to Cas remade their caretaker Laura but this time I made her a husband named Jenjie (He's Chinese lol) I placed them in the household and they've become friends with all the kids. Garrett and Georgia both grew up well after being taught all their toddler skills. I recently sent Gavin and Ginger to college since they were 10 Days away from being Adults. The rest of the kids are in private school.

    Broke Household
    I had Brandi teach Beau his toddler skills, Dustin came home And got lectured (per the script) later that day Angela calls the house and asks Dustin if he wants to sneak out Dustin agrees. Brandi is pregnant with her third child and decides to take a nap Beau is too busy playing with his Toys. Dustin sneaks out later that night and ends up being arrested by the cops for being out too late Brandi did not react despite being outside when Dustin was being escorted out the police car. The following day I decided to bless Brandi (Motherlode cheat I personally don't like my sims struggling) and changed the house around a bit. She helped Dustin with his homework, Dustin went to work and got fired from the criminal career (his aspiration is to be in the law career) so I decided to put him in the correct career my goal is to get Dustin's grades up so I can send him to college since he's 12 days away from being an adult. Updates coming soon.

    Chandra Family, Week Two

    So, Lydia and Ravi have twins Aisha and Lakshmi. At the end of week one, they had just become toddlers.

    kRyfPmF.jpg

    Aisha quickly mastered all her skills! Lydia had lots of Aspiration Points so buying the Thinking Cap and Smart Milk wasn't a problem.

    URrwK1T.jpg

    I sent Lydia to a community lot in Downtown and.... DUN DUN DUN MRS CRUMPLEBOTTOM APPEARED!

    mAXeaTl.jpg

    I love the little penguins that come along and talk to snowmen <3

    BlNjBPC.jpg

    The nanny peed herself... oh dear.

    TawLyvz.jpg

    Aisha and Lakshmi became children!

    bqsIDIc.jpg

    Thursday was... well... Ravi was really hungry, yet for some reason wasn't getting himself any food. And then... the worst thing possible happened.

    jWOwPbu.jpg

    Lydia and the kids were absolutely devastated.

    Lydia had always been a knowledge-seeking Sim, but knew she wanted something more. So, she became a witch! (I'd been planning this for a while, and found a painting/mod that could do this, as trying to find and befriend a High Witch would take a long time...)

    3GfvVJy.jpg

    She threw herself into strengthening her new-found magical powers.

    TF34Jyg.jpg

    The girls barely noticed that their mom now had sparkly skin. Lydia helped them both learn how to study.

    s34nhOf.jpg

    I invited the headmaster over. Unfortunately, the first time round was also unsuccessful. Something I hadn't noticed was that Lakshmi had a C- grade, and you need a C grade to get into private school. So, only Aisha got in. I might invite the headmaster over again when they're teens. Ravi wanted to get the girls into private school so I wanted to fulfill a want of his.

    rOv0tiu.jpg

    Lakshmi's predestined hobby is Sports, just like her dad's. Aisha's is Games; not Lydia's natural hobby but one she engaged in a lot when she was at university (playing pool all the time!)

    QLfMi1p.jpg

    Lydia, Aisha and Lakshmi all wanted a puppy, so they got one! This is little Abby.

    uiwHXaB.jpg

    ***

    So... rather an eventful week. I do feel kind of awful for what happened to Ravi... but all my Sims tend to have happy, successful lives and I wanted to do something a little different. It's a little like what happened to Brandi Broke (losing her husband), so I may well get Lydia and Brandi to become friends.

    Broke Household :
    Brandi had a baby boy who I named Artie, Dustin and Beau got accepted into private school. Dustin is at the top of the law career (he's still in high school) he brought up his grades and is doing very well in school. I plan on sending him to college before Beau turns into a teen. Brandi decided to go out on the town to get out of the house and hired a Nanny to look after Artie. She got her hair done, she ate a nice meal at the restaurant (I made the Blue water village micro mall into a restaurant sort of). She has also hired a maid to help clean up around the house while the older boys are at school, so she can focus on Artie. She wants to fall in love so I'm looking for some potential mates for her.

    Next Household I will be playing is The Pleasants and the Dreamers.

    Soon to be College roommates :
    Gavin Newson
    Ginger Newson
    Angela Pleasant
    Lilith Pleasant
    Dirk Dreamer
    Dustin Broke
    David Ottomas

    Future Households I will be playing :
    The Kim family
    The Ramirez family
    The Goth Family
    The kids from those three families including Beau Broke will all be attending college together when the time is right

    I've got an update from my BACC in Dodge from 1841.
    Here's the progress on the two main construction projects in town.
    Here's the walls being framed out in the apartment lot under construction.
    49850879991_7f1afb71eb_c.jpg
    The construction crew got as far as getting some of the walls insulated.
    49850340248_0b161c4edd_c.jpg
    Trash disposal got installed at the service center.
    49851202887_74f43d52c3_c.jpg
    The walls got closed in on the starter home construction.

    Parker Family, Week Three, Monday-Thursday

    I went back to the Parker family. I happened to be able to see what Alice's and Hazel's predestined hobbies were; the white outline had suddenly appeared in the hobby tab. Like her brothers and mommy, Alice was into Music and Dance...

    TVo4Ae7.jpg

    ... and Hazel's was apparently Fitness.

    KlR30Fm.jpg

    Clara's predestined hobby was not obvious, but after looking at her personality stats, I worked out that her hobby was actually Science.

    Every few hours over the weekend, I got notifications about how Oliver was doing badly at school, and I was looking forward to him going back to school so he could improve. But, it was Winter, and come Monday morning, the school announced a Snow Day. So I had even more notifications constantly popping up. I get it, he's got bad grades, I don't need reminding every few hours (game time)!!!

    siHw2mb.jpg

    Martin finally finished building his car! I decided to get him a robotics table.

    Ppz6NEl.jpg
    cIDYUon.jpg

    I decided to download a boy's ballet outfit. I'm not sure which triplet this is, but he's sure modelling it well!

    g7STU5F.jpg

    The boys finally went to school again on Tuesday. Joseph got an A+!

    Kcuhxvi.jpg

    ALL the kids were due to age up on the same day. I only got the girls to age up with a cake, and the boys aged up automatically the following day.

    fmHBOXV.jpg

    I managed to get snapshots of the girls aging up! Clara was first.

    1E7s72C.jpg

    Then was Alice...

    U0u2HEH.jpg

    Looks like the police showed up, oh dear. I don't think anything happened, actually. I didn't get any kind of warning.

    p4B4iK9.jpg

    Finally, little Hazel aged up.

    RfEGRtP.jpg

    And they're off to school! As you can guess, the girls wear matching dresses, in their colour. So many of my Sim girls have worn this style of dress :D I've always liked the toddler dresses they wore, too.

    JPUcrWj.jpg

    Lots of them brought home a friend! I also invited the headmaster over to get the girls into private school.

    m75fjka.jpg

    Success! All 6 Parker kids now attend private school!

    9M7mTZD.jpg

    And... we had another snow day. :| I also changed Daniel's "colour" from yellow to red.

    CLINsmO.jpg

    Woohoo! Snowball fights are awesome!

    Hello everyone! I missed all of your crazy adventures with the sims 2! and I love all of the pictures and stories you all share of your sims and neighborhoods. I sadly lost my Strangetown save, after all the love I put into it and it breaks my heart because I loved that town and all the progress I'd made. I'm debating on starting up again, But I know a lot will change haha, But I guess that's okay in the end. Anyway I may or may not share more pictures if I decide to start again but I will definitely continue to pop in to look at the amazing pictures and stories you all post :smiley:

  • Lucy_HenleyLucy_Henley Posts: 387 Member
    @Noree_Doree that's always a shame when you lose a save like that. I was trying to work out what the words in your signature were, when I realised it was the school cheer! It makes absolutely no sense :D But I do know that "gerbits" is Llamas.

    I've also got some screenshots from the Walker family over in Cosyville. I'll post those later.

  • Lucy_HenleyLucy_Henley Posts: 387 Member
    Ugh I was playing in Cosyville with a new family when the game crashed. No idea why. I googled it and most threads about it are to do with Ultimate Collection, which I don’t have. Trying to work out what the problem was (eg if it was mods or whatever) seems like such a complicated and long-winded process. So I have no idea if it was just one of those things, because I haven’t had any problems before, or if a mod was causing issues.

    @Noree_Doree I hope you do start playing again and sharing your pics and stories! Though I know how much it takes out of you when you lose all that time spent :disappointed:

    @Demery27 Omg, I hope you're okay now!!! :heart:

    @Lucy_Henley Oh noes! Not another crash :cry: I've always found it hard trying to determine what made it crash. This is the first time I'm actually backing up my games. So sick of crashes. Hope you can find a way to get back playing. Even if that means starting all over again :confused:

    Yeah, I need to double check about how exactly to do a back-up. If I did end up having to start again it would be annoying, but not too awful.
  • Lucy_HenleyLucy_Henley Posts: 387 Member
    Seems like backing up is less complex than I thought :D

    I ordered Bon Voyage off eBay a couple of weeks ago. Apparently the estimated arrival time was between 6th-12th May... when does it turn up? Today, the 16th!! :D:D When I ordered Apartment Life it came within the specified arrival period. Ah well, it’s here now.
  • hushfireflyhushfirefly Posts: 1,914 Member
    Haha yea, it's pretty simple thank goodness!
    Oh that's really cool that you can still buy the XPs. Learning the gestures and dances seem like fun until they do them obsessively! All mine do is Tai Chi anytime I give them free will.
    I'm nearly done redoing their house :sweat: Just finishing the front garden. I saw Blodwen running to the toilet so Generation C is on the way!

    Deleted my Neighborhoods folder and restarted a new save since I had filled all of the lots I could in my last save. Currently playing Marla Biggs in Four Corners. She's almost done with college. I decided to let her stay single this time around instead of having her look for a partner. Probably gonna hop over to Bitville and see what I can get into later.

    Omg YES to the dancing. I had a custom hood once where I sent a family on holiday to Three Lakes, and one of them learnt the Slap dance... they did it constantly, and other Sims in the hood learnt it from them!

    @Lucy_Henley I'm getting a mod for it lol I can't take it. I build and buy all these nice things for them to do and they just won't touch them because every waking moment is occupied by the BV features.

    :warning: Warning, pic spam! :warning:

    Finally get to play, yay! Here's the finished house :blush: I thought after the tacky and kinda sterile looking house, Blodwen would agree with Phaedra for a more, cozy and natural environment for their time as heirs :tongue: I didn't want it that big at all but I have such trouble with Sims and their path ways, plus there's six of them with one on the way. I won't post a house tour as you'll see bits of it anyways but here's the outside:
    Front
    01-front.jpg
    Back
    02-back.jpg
    First pregnancy spew! Blodwen actually had a rough go, she was throwing up a lot every day :disappointed:
    03-spew.jpg
    Since there's a room for all the witchy things now, I had Blodwen make some reagents in her witch room. Truly, only a face her wife could love :lol:
    04-look-of-evil.jpg
    Pregnancy life for Blodwen consisted of eating a lot of grilled cheese and dancing. So much dancing. Sterling and Branwen have been bonding over their team losing a lot.
    06-dance.jpg
    Time for Gen A to go Elder! First up was Sterling...
    07-Party-1.jpg
    08-Elder-Sterling.jpg
    And then Aderyn. I love Aderyn's smile :mrgreen: These sims never look like Elders haha Must be genetics.
    09-Party-2.jpg
    10-Elder-Aderyn.jpg
    Have I said these two are just so adorable and I love everything about them? Cause I do :heart: They are so sweet with each other. Aderyn and Sterling barely interacted romantically, just telling jokes. They preferred hanging out with Aeolus than with each other lol Sterling is kinda just... there... in the background. While Phaedra is already friends with all the family and loves playing games and giving hugs. Basically, I'm super into Gen B taking over :tongue:
    13-food-stealer.jpg
    12-hello-baby.jpg
    11-Stars.jpg
    Uncle Aeolus, now Great Uncle Aeolus, is 82 years old! I don't know how long he will last for :cry: I hope he gets to see the baby as a toddler and help with skills. He has been enjoying the pond I put in, spending his days learning to fish.
    14-Great-Uncle.jpg
    15-Fishy.jpg
    Wouldn't be a Firefly birth without everyone dancing around the pregnant lady going into labour!!! I guess it's a tradition now. I'm glad Phaedra made it home from work just in time after being promoted to nurse! She also came in to dance :lol:
    16-pain-dance.jpg
    Welcome baby boy, Cyprian!!! A Winter baby and the heir for Gen C :smile: All of Phaedra's attributes! The eye colour is finally different in this Legacy, woo!
    17-Cyprian.jpg
    Awww, yay new baby! The C Gen is here! Everyone crowded around and looked so happy :blush: It looked like Blodwen was going to pass Cyprian to his Aunt Branwen but instead she put him on the floor... And then she looked at me... And clutched her stomach in pain... At which point I started whispering "Oh no. Please no. Not twins again :grimace: I didn't build this house for twins. Nooooooo!!!"
    18-yay-baby.jpg
    Yeahhhhh... Welcome Cyprian's twin sister, Capucine!!! Also with Phaedra's attributes. Her face structure is different to her brother though, which I always love to see :smiley:
    19-Capucine.jpg
    Sooooo, yea... I guess my sims carry the twin gene! I've never had this happen lol In Sims 3, sure, twins and triplets all the time but never in the Sims 2. Truthfully, I had to step away for a bit because I just was not prepared. I had my little plan for Gen C. Was also going to let them get some pets, since once Gen A dies, there would only be four of them. I have a full house now at 8 sims :neutral:
    I love playing families and letting them have their own houses and families but there was just no way I would ever be able to complete this Legacy if I did that. Why I get frustrated having more than one kid. I hate that their siblings can't move out and have their own story. I don't want to send them to the bin either. Obviously, I get attached to my Sims!
    Ahh Sims 2, always throwing curve balls in your plans :tongue: I do feel better about it now and excited to see what happens! Cyprian will still be heir. I'll have to see what Capucine is like and think of a path for her.

    @hushfirefly Maybe you could have Capucine stay single and help out with her future niece/nephew? You don’t have to move her out!
  • hushfireflyhushfirefly Posts: 1,914 Member
    @Simtown15 Yea, that is what I have been doing with the extra siblings already :disappointed:
    I think I might shorten the elder lifespan when I have a big families. Mine already are living way over 80, and with extra siblings that takes up space(and my time!). Then maybe one of the siblings could have a partner or a child of their own for one of the Gen letters. So, maybe Capucine will get a partner or a kid. Not Aunty Branwen unfortunately, her fate is sealed already. Though she's proving to not be interested in teaching the kids anyways so it might be a sign :lol:
