    I successfully avoided error 12 today, but I don´t like the solution. I had to reduce the options again and now screenshots from Moonlight Falls have such a bad quality that they hurt my eyes, unfortunally. :'(
    But I love this neighborhood so much that I have to make this concession. :s

    Today was a quiet day. Taius went to school, Haldir to work and Stella and Tyler met each other at the outside pet bowls after getting up. They talked and flirted and then I decided that they had enough and that (at least) Tyler should work a bit (they don´t have to, they have made so much money over the years, that the family owns 99 999 999 Simoleons and every time they earn some money the game tells them that such a high amount of money couldn´t be booked at their account and is booked at an obscure account at overseas.

    Travis played and socialized with the oldest member of the family, dog Sissi. (I don´t know if I should keep her and make her young again or if I let her die, she is just a few days near to her end :'( )

    Stella decided to play the drums after I made Tyler to write on his book (if I don´t give them something to do they would end up woohooing)

    when Taius and Haldir came home both went straight to the stereo and danced, watched by some of the pets

    When my Sims are in Moonlight Falls they tend to stay at home and lead a quite boring life. This world is immemorial, I´m playing in it and with the Sims of it since Supernatural came out! So I can´t play on highest options anymore, because there are so many tremendous houses and so many Sims with maxed out skills that this town suffers from error 12 and sometimes stuttering.
    In the beginning of the performance issues I culled a lot of Sims but then I discovered Traveler and after igazor patiently explained its functions, my obsession with new worlds began! (I don´t want to bother igazor, so I don´t tag him, he has so much to do, that he doesn´t have to read my texts!)
    I could now move my beloved Sims to other worlds and could even play with them! Suddenly there were so many possibilities!
    Especially, because, as you can see below, Travis and Haldir have a lot of children and before Traveler they all lived in Moonlight Falls, which led to the problem that everyone was related to each other and the Sims didn´t find a partner. And Haldir has a few siblings, too, who also lived there.
    When I installed Traveler I began to move important family members to different worlds, this process isn´t finished at all. Because of this my Sims travel so much.
    And so, over the years, my families grew and grew, until now. I hope, that it isn´t too confusing to read who is related to whom. :)

    So, let´s continue the story!
    Haldir and Taius went to work and to school in the morning, Tyler was working on his book, Travis was reading (he is a bookworm) and Stella was working on a sculpture
    MDxLchw.jpg
    yy0SBku.jpg
    IVt6Jb1.jpg
    (she was making a big show and in the end the sculpture broke :D )

    when Taius came home, he played with his best buddy Tyson, they had a lot of fun!

    in the early evening the family ate together (and I have to admit that my pets are slobs, they always beg for food, sorry, bad parenting o:) )
    Stella made a lasagne which everyone liked
    Hvz1W1t.jpg

    afterwards they went to a party thrown by Stella´s niece Sylvie

    Stella and Taius went dancing

    Tyler and his brother Timon jumped on the trampoline

    and when Tyler fell off he went to his wife and wanted some love

    Sylvie´s husband came home and guess what? He is Tyler´s oldest brother, Emerson. :D

    and Haldir and Travis had fun together, inappropriate to show here :p

    When they all came home, Stella and Tyler watched the stars, nee, ceiling ;-) the others went to bed

    The family´s day was very boring today, I made just a few screenshots mainly from the pets, like this one
    dT9ypFL.jpg

    I just play through the day so that the neighbourhood could progress. I have some teens that are actually a bit older than Taius, but because of his many travels he is now older than them. So I have to age them up one by one and have to do a makeover in any case. ( :) The game generated outfits are hilarious and sometimes hurt the eyes!)
    And Taiuy gets older at Saturday, so I have to hurry up.

    But I´ve searched through some of my pictures and found something funny:
    have you ever noticed that the Sims put a newspaper under the pumpkin when they carve, but then they put the waste at the floor? They could save the work of searching for a newspaper if they didn´t put the waste on it!
    UtXW3xr.jpg

    and in winter the family had a visitor in the night:
    TC0jSol.jpg
    I don´t know what´s more discombobulating, the eyes and their lacrymal sacks, the stick (I really thought that aliens overcome old age!) or the swimsuit?
  • AlexaKryAlexaKry Posts: 393 Member
    Today I´ve tried to do a makeover of 5 Sims that became young adults, 2 are ready and saved and because of this I became too brave and tried (after saving and reloading) to make over the other 3. I was punished for it and got error 12 :'(
    So nothing new today. I hope my game behaves kind tomorrow and I can actually play again (heavily addicted :D )
    I´ll just post a picture of 2 of Haldir´s brothers, I´m planning of visiting one of them when Taius becames a young adult.
    Here are Hendrik and Helo Helmquist
    1mJNz5x.jpg
    and in order to show that they are brothers here is Haldir again (just because I can :p )

    All make overs have been made, Moonlight Falls has progressed, so it´s time to travel to Cape Garner Islands to celebrate Tauis´ birthday. The family travelled to the island, because Taius´ big brother Timian and his family live there and Taius wanted to see him again (he thought of him a few times in the last week and had the wish to invite him to plum). So thee family will celebrate the birthday together. And because 2 of Haldir´s children also live at the island (Misty, his oldest daughter, and Thom, his third son), he and Travis traveled together with the others.
    So here is the family arriving at their house at Cape Garner Islands:

    More pics of dog walking!
    They spent the whole day out in the wood or the beach, played with the dogs, met a friend, got a nice suntan.
    50DeHEH.jpg
    Travis, Stella and Taius went to a nice fishing spot together with T-Rey, Sissi and Rasta

    then she read a bit while Travis got to know his grandgrandson

    the dogs had fun, too

    when it was getting dark, the six went back home

    after the the others left for the fishing spot, Haldir and Tyler played with Tumari and Streuner

    then they went to the beach with Tumari and Tyson

    and after a relaxed day they went to bed happily :)

    And to tell the truth: it´s such a relief to play on highest options again! Although I really, really love Moonlight Falls, I always appreciate to be able to see my Sims and the surrounding clearly! :D
  • AlexaKryAlexaKry Posts: 393 Member
    The pets enjoyed the holiday, too.
    Streuner was playing with his toy mouse

    At the day of Taius´ birthday the sun rose over a nearly cloudless sky, it was already warm and it would be a wonderful day
    0yP4dgB.jpg
    qOQWtR5.jpg
    Taius was up first, his parents and grandparents were still sleeping. To distract himself he draw a picture (why his main color was brown, I don´t get, his view wasn´t the inspiration obviously
    BeldHNT.jpg
    WutSotC.jpg

    when the grandparents were awake, they took him to the football field where they played catch and threw the frisbee
    Bb00PM1.jpg
    4y71xnK.jpg
    DVvlJnx.jpg
    foOtM5D.jpg
    NMQ7Jus.jpg

    so his parents could organize his birthday party
    OC3MvSu.jpg
    Tyler was texting his intstructions to the party planners, while Stella played with Sissi. And why not combine the stress with leisure?
    After everything was organized, Tyler sat down and drew his wife
    XBbuVbD.jpg
    well, ok, it´s not an exact copy of her, more an interpretation ?!? ;) of her, but hey this is creative freedom, right?
    yG6JMyU.jpg
    vXEp3B9.jpg
    the three are at the beach at the back of the house
    idKO2Tk.jpg

    in the dawn Tyler and Stella went to the football field to join the others and then it was time to go to the birthday party location (the dogs were sent home)
    Mizee1v.jpg

    nearly half of the people of the island were there (there are only 31 inhabitants, so this was not difficult to achieve, especially, because all 31 Sims are related to each other somehow :p )
    DzfgoWN.jpg

    then it was time
    rHznQCD.jpg
    wmY9KDk.jpg
    58fVZFd.jpg
    OaJjPZs.jpg
    ECLP6YO.jpg
    Taius was happy to be of full age (but no way I keep his outfit!)
    k5EGAZT.jpg

    the guests tried to get a piece of the birthday cake, not all of them got one
    8KTGI74.jpg

    I was happy to see Taius´ brother at the party and that he got a piece of cake (and that he was pregnant with his third child!)
    FZk5n01.jpg
    Xs2fkD1.jpg
    BzYpqfT.jpg

    when they finished the cake the guests and the family were dancing, drinking and having fun
    (can you see at the bottom left corner of the picture where Tyler is dancing? He actually is a loner, so he autonomiously searched for the loneliest spot to dance, in front of the restrooms :D )
    gH7B9Hp.jpg
    all others were in the main room
    YfNUVtf.jpg
    and then I thought I couldn´t see properly: Sissi was sleeping at the dancefloor! The poor old girl run across the whole island to follow her mistress (she is Stella´s dog)! I really felt sorry for her, because she was so much in the red with her needs that I´ve cheated and rose her needs!
    2UMZJ8Y.jpg
    FM0zDWg.jpg

    I discovered grandpa Haldir dancing happily, he made such a cute face, I have to show!!! <3
    0EPKCb4.jpg

    d8pIkzA.jpg
    6QskSDi.jpg
    tqV46Uk.jpg
    even the birthday child danced
    2N5nKOn.jpg

    and Tyler had to deal with his attraction, all three of the ladies tried to flirt with him and didn´t leave him alone, poor boy :D

    The next morning the family slept long, they came back home from the party very late and because the graduation ceremony started at noon they had enough time.
    BddzDR5.jpg
    nbqUp3m.jpg
    Bo0C5o1.jpg

    the pets were a bit bored, so they made a bit of a mess, they really are slobs! (and perhaps I have too many pets in my household :D )
    oJfznfl.jpg
    dM5fRcy.jpg

    as everything was cleaned up and everybody dressed up, it was time for them to go to the city hall

    finally an adult!

    they had reserved a table at the bistro at the harbour to celebrate the graduation
    therefore they met Taius´ brother Timian and his husband Felix at the bistro
    ISmhbT3.jpg
    OVBEbSy.jpg
    ei3ZKiY.jpg

    after lunch the stayed at the bistro, where they met a few other family members who live at the island
    lsYB6zk.jpg
    like Thom, Haldir´s and Travis´ son, Tyler´s brother
    UHF3r9R.jpg

    Taius and Timian talked lively together (they haven´t seen each other for a few weeks, which was long for them, because they love each other and talk together nearly every day on the phone when they can´t see each other!)
    afyRvFL.jpg
    fOZozvn.jpg

    just their dad didn´t want to talk, he preferred to play catch far away from the others with his son-in-law
    y1bge3l.jpg

    coming home late again, Tyler congratulated his son to the graduation and of being the best student. He told his son that he was very proud of him and loved him much!

    Today I´ll just post some pictures of the island and the house of the family and the area around it, because I just played, without taking screenshots for this thread. At the moment I´m not in the mood to think of good pics, my mum is in hospital and had an emergency operation and I have to take care of my father who suffers from dementia/Alzheimer. But I´ve already loaded some pics into my imgur account, which didn´t fit until today!

    My family started into the day slowly. The couples had a lot of love for each other :*
    so we go for a walk with Sissi and Taius
    MxwjYja.jpg
    lKjgkq9.jpg
    ciTvCdL.jpg
    GS2EUSL.jpg
    FozKTkG.jpg
    they played a bit at the cementary
    Y90RLYW.jpg
    and walked back home (because of the old age of Sissi and her smallness they walked slowly and were back at home in the afternoon)
    7I7f68V.jpg
    soMvUZO.jpg
    ioL0NUD.jpg
    Zz7lIxB.jpg

    at home Tius got on the computer and chatted a bit, while Travis prepared food for the party they would have in the evening and Tyler painted his father, the pets were playing (I don´t know if I go with the hair Taius is wearing or if I change it)
    4uT9zKe.jpg

    then one of the last guests went into labour
    zWUGzzT.jpg
    followed by another birth (the Sim in the short jumper and the green shirt, she´s Tyler´s sister-in-law Rike)
    4sWpZ3I.jpg

    Haldir brought Rike to the hospital
    HAkuXHT.jpg
    Travis brought his half-sister Amber to hospital (while the husband of Rike and Haldir´s and Travis´ son Thom arrived at the hospital to help his wife to give birth)
    tdYyiRo.jpg

    this stress was too much for Taius, so he travelled to Hidden Springs with the two dogs Tyson and Takujo
    MXxW35O.jpg
  • AlexaKryAlexaKry Posts: 393 Member
    On the next day Taius asked his cousin Christian to move in. Christian is a dog lover, so he gladly accepted (and he also is a werewolf).
    here he is
    QfWGBKx.jpg
    he is athletic, too, so he took the opportunity to go jogging through Hidden Springs
    sq7bvAe.jpg
    1gvwxk3.jpg

    when he was back at home both boys decided to go to a good fishing spot with the dogs, because the weather was so nice and warm they went to the big waterfall to get some of the vapour to cool down

    (as you can see in the background, Taius had some problems with the sausages, hopefully the hot dogs he made didn´t taste too much like grass ;) )
    the dogs saw a chance to get a piece of sausages,too, and begged for it
    fEQm9kz.jpg
    Knej0C1.jpg
    (they didn´t get something, they were too late!)

    after lunch the boys played catch to get rid of the calories and to stay fit, unfortunately both of them don´t have a partner, so they have to be in good shape to have chances on the market :D
    uX4YwLb.jpg

    in the evening they went to town to the bowling alley to have some fun

    they played soccer and then Christian met one of his uncles and fought with him (both are werewolves)

    Today I didn´t play much, because I had to add a new bedroom for Christian who went to Cape Garner Island together with Taius (they will travel to Moonlight Falls in a few days, because there I have some Sims who have to move to a new town and Christian and Tius will accompany them, all of them famly members)
    So I added a new floor to the house the family lives in at the moment. First I built the new bedroom at the third floor, but then decided, that all bedrooms should be at the same floor, so I can survey who is asleep and who gets awake (I´m a control freak so I have to know what my Sims are doing and when everyone sleeps at the same floor this is easier :) )
    Therefore I´ve put the bedroom down to the music room, which I then put on the third floor

    While everybody was still sleeping I´ve watched the pets and discovered Streuner in front of the captured insects. In real life I like dogs more, but in this game I´m so in love with this cat! <3 I think he´s sooo adorable with his skinny figure and this large ears!
    So here´s an overload of pictures:

    In the night I finished some re-decoration of the living room, because I didn´t like the whitish couch anymore, I recolored it and the carpet, too

    the day started bright and sunny, so Tyler decided to have a walk through the woods with Tyson, he was exhausted from all the people in the house and needed some time for himself

    meanwhile his wife tried to bath Streuner, well, it didn´t went well :D

    but in the end they both smooched again

    in the late afternoon, when Tyler and Tyson were back home, the family ate a perfect meal together

    when the moon rose, Christian transformed into his werewolf form

    his manners at the table weren´t as good as before :p but the family ignored it successfully

    except Stella, who was scared apparently (but I don´t know why, because her brother Matthew Striker-Hamming is married to a werewolf (Richie Striker-Hamming) and she lived with them for a few years, so she should be used to it, stupid girl! :o )

    after dinner Haldir, Travis, Christian and Tyler played table football and even Tyler had fun (what some hours of recreation can do!)

    Stella had recoverd from the shock seeing her nephew transforming and played chess and talked with her son Taius

    and the pets were doing what the can do best: being noisy and making a lot of mess :D

    Merry Christmas to everyone who`s reading this thread (not so many, but to the few I wish the very best!!!! <3 ) :D
    At the moment my Sims family is at Cape Garner Island, as you know, and it is summer, so I don´t have recent pics of the family´s Christmas party, but as I said in the beginning, this is a very old game, so they had a few Christmas Eves together! (I live in Germany, so my Sims always get their presents on Christmas Eve, too, like we do here!)
    So here are some pictures of the last Christmas party the family had
    56oWYdv.jpg
    (just a few members of the family)

    when all presents were unpacked some were dancing

    this is the oldest son of Haldir, Emerson

    and the later it got, all possible places were filled with sleeping Sims

    and some winter traditions of my Sims :p

    In the morning, Taius was the first to be awake, so he enjoyed the quiet time (as quiet as it can be in a household with 6 dogs, 4 of them being loud, they driving me crazy sometimes, so I have to mute my game! :o ).
    He went to his grandfather´s room and sat dow at the window, while they were still sleeping. And of course there were a few pets in the room as well

    6RarOg9.jpg

    Tyler decided he needed alone time again and took Tumary for a walk to the cementary, where he was fishing a bit (Tumari was monitoring him, not understanding, why he did such a boring thing! :D )
    S2WQGSk.jpg
    tRKKLWq.jpg
    (on the way to the cementary Tyler´s sister Misty drove to work, and guess what? He noticed her and greeted her (this is for the Sims 4 players who insist to maintain the false statement that the Sims in The Sims 3 are not aware of the other Sims and their surrounding! Not true!!)

    Stella and her son had found the easels meanwhile
    VFeYccu.jpg
    and Christian was into his music completely (unfortunately he is on skill level 1, so the "music" sounded, well, not like music so much :s )
    K0jpJbi.jpg
    it seemed, he was frustrated about his music, too, so he had to scratch something! ;)
    9nOQK77.jpg

    Haldir phoned Tyler to meet him and T-Rey at the beach to fish there, Haldir wanted to spend some quality time with his youngest son and also wanted to get him out of his isolation
    IgQfT7i.jpg(don´t you think, too, that T-Rey squints a bit?)

    Taius had ended his portrait of ...?(well, it´s a bad idea to paint a dark dog in front of a dark background) :D
    2FkATvZ.jpg
    then he played with Rasta
    g53LlYM.jpg
    and Stella played with Takujo
    5Ge6yjw.jpg
    NjuDVMW.jpg

    Streuner had a lot of fun under the couch, especially, when Tumari was disturbed by him and couldn´t get to him

    VParBMK.jpg
    n7qLMbW.jpg
    HvdB3zz.jpg
    when the night began, he joined Stella at the couch, slept there and dreamed of his special human
    NnokycW.jpg

    and at the neighbor´s house it was burning in the night
    uucyE1d.jpg
    I thought it was amazing, where the fire truck parked, I don´t know, how they put out the fire :p (the fire was in the house in the background!)

    Because it was raining, all of the family did something in the house. Taius and Travis painted at the porch, Tyler painted on his own in the office, Haldir played chess at the computer, Christian improved his musik skills and Stella watched TV together with Sissi

    in the afternoon the whole family met in the kitchen and ate or begged (except Streuner, he was sleeping)

    after that Haldir, Travis, Tyler and Stella had a lot of love for each other (ok, not all four of them together :D )
    so Taius and Christian played catch
    Ok9KsPk.jpg
    and then Christian decided to give Taius an acupuncture, Tyler wasn´t impressed by it, after it he was a bit stressed, Christian however was totally satisfied with his skills

    At the moment I don´t have a lot to tell you about the life of the family, because I am moving Sims from town to town. I have some towns in the save that are overcrowded, so I decided, that, because I have some more time because of the holidays, I´ve got enough time to travel from one town to the other. And because of the CC and the age of the game, travelling lasts up to 20 min real life time for each town. So I watched a lot of TV in the last days :D fortunately during this time of the year the TV program is good! ;)
    At the last town I´ve moved I redecorated a house yesterday and today, here are some screenshots:
    From the outside the house is stunning!
    3CKeXAy.jpg
    DthKpj2.jpg
    iolxw9g.jpg

    but the inside of the house is much too old and depressing in my opinion, although it goes with the theme of the world. It´s Caldey Isle by StellaToronto Sims, which is an old middle-aged town. But I decided to renovate the houses one by one (in the next few years or so :D ) and to get it to the 21. century.
    Here is my re-design, I hope it´s not too toe-curling, I´ve always try to stay in the colors the owners of the house like and my couple who shall live in the house likes violett and braun, which is an awful combination in my opinion! :p

    edited January 2
    This day I have to devide into 2 parts (the next part will be tomorrow), because there was so much going on!
    I´ve searched for Streuner and zoomed to him and I´ve found him at Tyler´s feet, cleaning himself. The two of them have a very special relationship and Streuner likes to be around Tyler, he always searches for him!
    gf7KjLX.jpg
    KBM48Dm.jpg
    And of course Tyler was on his own again!
    Stella played with Takujo
    tSCcZHZ.jpg
    WdqDMBI.jpg
    (I didn´t even know that the Sims and the dogs could play this at a balcony!)
    Taius was reading (and Haldir and Travis, well, think for yourself ;) )
    bAm9Yxt.jpg
    Christian played the violine and after he couldn´t hear his squealing anymore, he phoned his parents in Hidden Springs (he still sounds as if somebody stands on the foot of a cat)
    xLtqopx.jpg
    Xk6YGM5.jpg
    0XqbeIU.jpg
    after Haldir and Travis finished whatever they´ve done >:) Haldir joined Tyler. He always is concerned about his son and his evidently withdrew into his shell!
    7ngtwAb.jpg
    later they are joined by Christian as well, he is an angler and always likes to be around his grandparents!

    Stella had enough of playing with Takujo and searched for her son to play catch. They played hard and did not pay anything, both have mastered the sports skill!

    the dogs wanted to play with them :p but had no chance to get the ball
    QGJm2Vw.jpg
    Travis was sculpturing and wanted to join his husband, Tyler and Christian when he had finished the sculpture
    bn5fWDP.jpg
    but there was something, which hindered him to go to the beach :*
