    fun screenshot @Simmingal why are people waiting? won't everything transfer over?

    nothing posted here between may and july will be on new forum so I would have to repost everything and I already have bunch of stuff in my folders that i was meaning to preserve from this time so 😅 I'd rather not add to it before the new forum is out

    thanks for that information @Simmingal So helpful!
    Two months worth seems like a lot to update thou. Not sure how to do that. Maybe in the form of my own thread or make a blog to document my game.

    My last edit of the round bungalow. I rounded out and adjusted all the decks. L3QaEhi.jpg

    Of course everything work. I was testing it as I build it. And then I take my sims on vacation there and they can seem to sit on a solid platform deck with the couch. I got them to sit a few times but for the most part I think the game is just bugging out. I edited to a love seat but- it worked first 2 times and then not at all. Throwing the towel in. Good night.

    @Ellupelluellu The cabin looks so cozy and peaceful. ❤️ The pond is icing on the cake. 🙂
    @BlueSeaWaves Tal, listen to Tornado. 😁 Oh Alexis, you shouldn't have said that. Not in front of him. Tal is not happy with Alexis. 👀
    @mightysprite Ouch!Maybe leave the dunks to Hal. 🙂 Hope Tayson is healed by game day.
    @Caerfinon I noticed that fix last night. It's a welcome fix.😁
    @Metior_Ice I love your ideas. And your inspiration and enthusiasm show in your post. Looking forward to seeing the new updates soon. 🙂
    @Simmingal No problem. I do stuff like that all the time. 😁

    A really small update on Aurora and Tre. Aurora found a solution that should allow Tre to climb Mt. Komorebi safely. Her crystal tree just sprouted a hematite. She crafted it into a chunky ring for Tre to wear on the climb. As long as it's fully charged he can't die. As soon as she finds another hematite she'll make herself a necklace for the climb.

    I have a list of NEW Erik Cantrell Saves Updates that would have been transferred over by me, but in the meantime, I have succumbed to the need to do the prequel, "Cantrell: The Early Years", to tell their beginnings. I shall have to figure out if I'll just keep going with the Redrafted version of my game. I have a bit of time to make such a decision, though.

    @LeucosiaX How do you write up your updates? As in, do you write them on the forum, or do you first write them up in a word processing program? I use Word Perfect, but Windows comes with Word. I keep them in their own folder in my Documents folder. Then it's just a matter of my copying and pasting them into the forums. There is also a free to use Zippy. Jot program you can use. I discovered that while languishing in Massachusetts several weeks ago. Again, you can just copy and past them into the forum.

    @LeucosiaX We just had a bit of an update. Could it be that's the problem? When you're ready try a game-repair. The update took me by surprise, so I didn't even get the chance to backup my new game. :open_mouth: weird things are now occurring in my game. Joseph was holding infant Erik and then Erik flew out of his arms to land on the floor. Seriously? I mean seriously?

    @DaniRose2143 I really need to get one of my Sims more invested in the whole crystal thing.

    Your process is thorough. I have sometimes when long pulled out a text edit app, but your idea is much better. If I were to update with a word app, I would more than likely make more wordy post, which I have avoided since there can be so many errors, if not word processed. I will give it a try @GalacticGal thanks for the idea.

    @mightysprite Tal looks out for his loved ones 🙂
    Lol would’ve missed the lucky cherry socks unless you pointed them out 😆 Ooof 2 days before the game 😔 Here's hoping for a speedy recovery 🤞

    @GalacticGal They are, funny at first they didn’t get along 😆

    @LeucosiaX It looks amazing! The background makes it look stunning

    @DaniRose2143 Alexis has a habit of getting on Tal’s bad side. They just became friends too, but every interaction between them is a hit or a miss 🥲
    Yay for hematite, gotta keep Tre safe at all costs 🙌 now for hers 🙂

    @Ellupelluellu Tal’s made himself the head of the household 😎 He keeps everyone in check.

    @BlueSeaWaves , lol, unlike Piccolo by @danirose , Pico is not interested at watching that heart show :p
    @DaniRose2143 , Aurora is good at this jewelry business :)

    @GalacticGal Yes this is a change of pace for me, for sure. So far there are no plantsims, no mad scientists summoning grilled cheese, not even a werewolf. So far.

    Tayson Jatum's parents were both athletes when they were young. Now his dad Arthur is working his way up in the business career, while his mom Susan has a business making jewelry and selling it on Plopsy.
    Well, she lists the jewelry on Plopsy. She has yet to make a sale. Susan believes that crystals have magical powers that can enhance your life. Tayson wonders if these powers include assistance with finding customers, but he hasn't had the nerve to ask.

    Neither of them is a very good cook. Arthur's attempt at Harvestfest food went the way of so many sim families' first Harvestfests
    05-28-24-11-28-08-AM.png

    After saving his dad's life, Tayson went over to spend the day with his friend Hal Orford instead.
    "Oh no! The socks and slippers look! Your ankle still feeling bad?"
    "Yeah, I sprained it. It swelled up overnight and now I don't fit in my shoes. Why is it so dark in here?"
    05-28-24-11-43-58-AM.png
    "Rolling blackouts," said Hal's little sister Ariel. "Some kind of attempt at conservation. I think it's a little extreme."
    05-28-24-11-43-31-AM.png

    "I guess we can't watch the game then," said Tayson.
    "You could try reading a book?" suggested Ariel. "Have you ever?"
    "Hey now, we play ball, that doesn't make us illiterate," said Hal.
    "Are you sure?" said Ariel.
    "Don't forget you were into basketball yourself when you were little," Hal said. "You were pretty good too."
    "I have no further use for sportsing," said Ariel. "I am going to become a bestselling author, or maybe a university professor like Mom."
    05-28-24-11-45-29-AM.png

    Tayson has always been a little sweet on Ariel. But he'd never let on. She's his friend's little sister.
    Screen-Shot-2024-05-28-at-11-53-40-AM.png

    The book didn't actually interest Tayson, but here was something that didn't require electricity
    "Here we go," said Hal.
    "I'll be in my room," said Ariel.
    05-28-24-11-45-51-AM.png

    Tayson found he liked this. It was a slow activity, no one was charging at him or waving their arms trying to block him, it was just him and the notes he was gradually learning to locate
    05-28-24-11-46-05-AM.png

    He began to fantasize about getting good enough to write a romantic serenade for the lovely Navya Nair from school... or...
    05-28-24-11-46-40-AM.png

    ...or maybe Ariel?
    05-28-24-11-46-55-AM.png

    He put the guitar down and just enjoyed a quiet afternoon with his friend.
    Screen-Shot-2024-05-28-at-1-46-33-PM.png

    When he got home, Susan was just dropping a puffy envelope into the mailbox. "I made my first sale! This is happening!"
    05-28-24-12-08-14-PM.png

    Tayson congratulated her, and spent the evening watching his heroes do what they do best.

    Spoiler]
    fun update. Yes, cooking that Grand Meal certainly has its hazards. That and the dryer. LOL I like how you had Tayson admit to himself, at least, that he's crushing on Ariel, but respects the line he shouldn't cross, at least not at this time.

    @BlueSeaWaves Thanks 🙏😊 It looks good without the lighting and world textures override too
    but with the override and that time of day that save-the sun's position 🙌 I really enjoy using sunrise and k hippies override for build photos😊 Unfortunately trying to get it up on the gallery, its being flagged as modded, enough though it's now. I may have to go to an older version and update it before the glitch occurred, to see if that helps.
    I am trying to find a work around for it as I would like it to be seen if I put it up on the gallery.

    As one of my game changes that I am seriously considering, I will choose which Sunday is the Sunday of the Starlight Accolades, rather than it being every single week, which grows tedious. I may send my Sim on a week when he isn't nominated, just to see what happens as curiosity is about to kill this particular cat. LOL But that is well into the future, since where I start the Early Years, Erik is an Infant. I hope to let this storyline be mostly game driven, as before, with just a tweak or two along the way. I also wish to explore this Sim more fully. I grew concerned about his portrayal when I received a comment about how his feelings of insecurity displayed upon earning his 50th Best Song made him appear more normal, if you will. In my mind Erik was always a 'normal down to earth' fella, but obviously I wasn't getting that across to readers. Instead, he came off as something of a super-hero, if you will, who could do no wrong. I will focus more on his foibles. I do appreciate feedback of all sorts, particularly constructive comments, such as the one referenced, even if I didn't word it the same as the original. I failed you all and do hope this new go-around draws you into the story better.

    We live, we learn, and hopefully we grow. Many thanks.

    I sent the Murphys to Selvadorada which was fun. Conor and Niamh did spend most of the time looking after the kids rather than exploring, but that's normal. They did get to the Omiscan Temple once but didn't properly explore. When the kids are older I'll send them again.
