    SEASON 8 - LUNAR LAKES / OASIS LANDING

    Bot Building Party

    This title says it all, I really enjoyed the self employed bot builder career. It was all over way too soon, I had enough points to buy a couple of boxes with trait chips and I just went in to a cycle of create plumbot - tune up to future tech - tune up once more - put 7 chips in it - sell it. After 10 sales (including Android as the first sale) I not only managed to reach level 10 but also get the 11th 'level' promotion. And I traveled back to the present.

    Rather worryingly though, the last time I saw Emit Relevart he had turned in to an elder. Does anyone know if he can die? And what happens if he dies? Will the game create a new Emit? Will I still be able to finish the time keeper statue with no Emit?

    Just to be sure, I decided to switch the order of 1 career in each time around, and instead of going for the Law Enforcement career I am going to switch Oasis Landing to Dystopia and do that career first. Then I will fix the time and travel back for a finishing touch, and only after that will I do the last career of this season that should have been the 5th.

    Goals
    • Trigger Dystopia and travel to it
    • Get the Bot Arena - Arena Mechanic career done
    • Travel back and restore the timeline
    • Visit the Normal Future shortly and get the 5th Legacy Statue

    SEASON 9 - STARLIGHT SHORES

    Two Types Of Babies

    I see that I probably skipped a blog! Before yesterday we freed a genie, and had a daughter by him. Both the genie and the daughter have moved on by now. Then she found an alien in the town and decided to marry him, whom she is currently expecting a daughter of. He also came with not 1 but 2 spaceships so I had her put one of the two unique upgrades on each of them and then stored them in her family inventory for now. Then her alien husband started complaining out of the blue and their relationship went down by almost a quarter, only hours after she had married him and conceived. Like, what? So I had him move on also. I don't have time for that kind of drama. You're an adult, you should be able to handle yourself better then that.

    Showtime vs Simport

    As the three careers from this seasons are the ones that are involved with simport I have been reading up about it a bit. I initially thought about going after all of the stamps by trying to make more friends here. But then I read a topic about people who lost all of their progress in stamps with crashes, lost game folders, or game/windows reinstalls. That turned it off for me. If I put in all of the work to arrange simports worth of 90 !!!! stamps, I don't want to loose it all due to having to reinstall windows. To me that means that it isn't properly registered and therefore not worth all the effort. So I downloaded an unlock mod instead.

    Beau Bodybender

    I really didn't know what name to pick for her artist name, I mean, why can't she just use her own name. But ok, so I randomised a couple of times and I saw some names for acrobats that ended with Body Bender. So I decided to make it a double B and now she is an acrobat called Beau Bodybender (yes, without the space). She is currently at level 3, and she just had her second gig planned when she found out she was pregnant and everything got cancelled out. I guess thats some sort of bad planning on my account. But we'll roll with it.

    Goals
    • Get the Acrobat career to it's top level
    • Get an Acrobat Gig at least once in all general types of venues
    • Get the Magicians career done
    • Get the Singer career done

    SEASON 9 - STARLIGHT SHORES

    Let There Be Fire

    She has just reached level 8 in the Acrobat career, and is a firefly! I haven't tried her new prop, the ring of fire yet, but I can only imagine how amazing it is. She has had 4 gigs up until now, 1 at the park, 1 at the coffeehouse, 1 at micks and 1 at some private venue I forgot the name of. Micks then requested her to turn it into a weekly deal. But at the rate she is progressing now I don't think I will need another week to reach level 10. And when she is level 10 and has had a Big Venue Gig I will probably quit and move on to the next career. Thus far the only audition that she didn't get through was one of the private venues. So I went to its neighbor and got a gig there instead! If you can't see proper talent when it is right in front of you, you will miss out on all the amazing action. Your loss buddy.

    Goals
    • Reach level 10 of the Acrobat Career
    • Get a Gig at a Big Venue (I want the Stadium)
    • Join the Magicians career
    • Land a Gig for it in one of each of the 5 types of venues

    SEASON 9 - STARLIGHT SHORES

    Master Acrobat

    Yay, Amber reached level 10 in the Acrobat Career and is now a Master Acrobat. Or rather, was. Because as soon as she A} reached level 10 and B} had a gig at the big stadium, I had her quit her job. The idea is, as usual, that level 10 means it's time to move on to the next career. But then her acrobat ball and ring of fire went poof as well. I don't know if that is a bug or it's meant to be like that, but I'd rather have stashed them in her family inventory. I use the family inventory to store anything that is not generally buyable, whether that is because it is a life time reward object, something that she got from a career, or an object (not books) bought in another country. And ofcourse her chests with collectables. But OK, gone is gone. Next time I load up the magicians career will be kickstarted!

    Goals
    • Start the Magicians career
    • Perform for tips a LOT
    • Get a gig of each of the 5 types of venues
    • Become a Master Magician

    SEASON 9 - STARLIGHT SHORES

    Master Magician

    After a lot of hard work 'Beau Brighthand' made it to the top of the Magician career, and also got scheduled for a gig in all of the five venue types already. Ok, it does help that she has all but 1 reward traits already, of which one or two are directly involved in success on stage. But hey, those traits are there to use right? I must say I don't particularly liked this career, just like I didn't like the witch life state much. I think it just isn't my thing altogether. So I am happy that this one can be crossed off the list. Now only one more showtime career and I can start wrapping up this season.

    I am also planning to travel to complete my chest full of 1 of each type of harvestable, even though I believe it won't be necessary until season 15. But I can, so why not. After that I only need to travel to catch all of the fish in one of the seasons and I won't have to do any other traveling until season 19 where you work on the visas! I am quite curious to those quests, but that has to wait until the end (even if I don't know why) so no spoilers (yet) please!

    Goals
    • Join the Singer career
    • Perform a gig in all 5 types of venues
    • Reach the top of the Singer career
    • Travel to collect the harvestables

    SEASON 10 - LUCKY PALMS

    Politics

    According to Llandros' rules the first year of this season is about the Politics career. Ofcourse I can pick my own order, but this one seemed as good as any so I started the season with that one. I had to figure out how to get funding parties, and held them at the pool a couple of times, which all were a huge success. Within no time she was the big boss, and then I had her quit the career as I usually do. And yes, I know, according to Llandros' rules I have to keep each job for 4 weeks (and parttime jobs for 2) but I guess I just don't have what it needs to stick around for that long. I'm more of the Done / Check / Move On type. And as this is my game, this is how I'm going to keep playing it. She also spend some evenings at the casino and another weekend after quitting her job, so level 10 of the hidden Gamble skill was in the pocket too. Next up is a visit to the wishing well to wish for offspring, and then on to the next career!

    Goals
    • Visit the wishing well and wish for offspring
    • Join the Art Appraiser career
    • Work on my list of Unique Upgrades
    • Join the Law Enforcement career
