    A bought my first horse.

    Cool. My Sims are enjoying their horses. Erik bought two initially, a Stallion and a Mare. Then at one point he told his Stallion to mate with the Mare. And that's how we got a filly! She's a bit of a handful, but she's awfully cute, too. Best of luck. Have FUN.

    My Sims managed to have yet another kitchen fire. That dang pizza oven! This time it was Erik, with his level 10 cooking skill. Stands to reason it's not the lack of skill that is the cause. Sheesh. I'm still a couple of Sim-days away from their Christmas celebration and a visit to the Starlight Accolades Show, wherein I hope Erik will take home his 36th Best Song. (Yes, he's already won that in the other save that now no longer exists.) Laptop hard drive went kablooey! But it's all good. I'm thankful for the thread where the topic was how often do you back up your game. It prompted me to do just that the same day. Phew! And as you can see Kayleigh's hair is back to normal. I'm loving this gaming laptop!

    Nancy was enjoying the fantastic view from her new little backyard.

    Later that day she took a bike ride and enjoyed another beautiful view

    And after that she biked back and the full moon followed her home

    The strangest thing happened today in my family... It is winter. One of my sims just celebrated his birthday and became a YA. He celebrated by jumping into the pool while it was snowing. He promptly froze to death. The whole family went outside and sat on the edge of the pool and mourned him, before 2 nephews and one of his sisters jumped in the pool with him and froze too. I tried sending the rest of the family inside, but they all ignored the command. They stayed outside and the dad as well as another sister all froze and died as well. It's a sim-house of horrors!

    Oh, wow, that's crazy-insane and has to be some sort of glitch. I know when my Sim got stuck outdoors, slowly freezing to death, along with his only sister, I had to do a save recovery only to have him freeze to death once he managed to get inside! I did a rollback, after I repaired my game. He's now alive and well and had to explain to his fans how yes, he had hypothermia, but it was treated in time and he's okay.

    So sorry to hear your family basically got wiped out. Sheesh, that's brutal.

    I don't have anything yet regarding an update, other than to say I finally have a gaming laptop. The little laptop I was using finally bit the big one and the drive is no good. However, hubby surprised me with it, saying he was able to have them replace the hard drive. I now have Windows 11 on that one, too, to serve as a backup computer. Phew. We just have to get it setup, which I hope will happen this evening when he gets home from work. I'm also hoping it can handle the latest version of Word Perfect, since I no longer have that word-processing program. He says that will be the other part of my Christmas gift. In the meantime, my current back up of my game started about seventeen Sim-days behind where my current (now defunct) save was. I won't be posting stories so much as just giving a clue as to what happened as I replay those few days. Once I'm caught up, however, I shall go full force into turning it into a readable story. :)

    I finished checking my mods before going offline to avoid tomorrow's patch, but now I can't still play, because I fear my laptop may be overheating because of dust. Going to get it cleaned tomorrow, but what am I to do untill then, my homework?

    Oh, dear. I feel your pain. I had to sit out last Wednesday, because the ill-fated laptop was taken to the shop. I sat and watched TV during the daytime, something I hadn't done in years. You would be proud of me, though. I didn't cry. I felt like it, not knowing the fate of my laptop at that time, or hubby's remedy, but I didn't give into the tears. I stoically watched Scrooge (the musical version with Albert Finney) and actually enjoyed sitting there.

    I think I've seen some clips from Scrooge from youtube, it seemed rather cool. I was going to wait with taking my laptop to be cleaned untill I had my online mid-term test next monday, but my father put it into my head that the laptop is gonna die before that. A pity, really, since I have tomorrow free and I was going to use it to study, but oh, well. At least it shouldn't take long as the computer itself is fine, it just needs to be dusted. Maybe by the time I get free time, I have figured out a gem-themed boy name for one of my sim Rose's upcoming triplet. All the names I've thought sound better on girls. They'll be the first children in the 5th generation of my unofficial witch royalty

    Have a brief update. Something happened in my game that didn't before in the defunct save. So, I thought I would bring everyone up to date. I checked and at this time Jamison didn't have his Accolades (you may remember he's won two, thus far). I sent Erik, Kayleigh and Jamison off to the Show just after the family demolished their large pile of presents. It's Christmas Day in my game, currently. Cadence is again a teen, having aged up on Friday. While the three sat in the audience of the Starlight Accolade Show Jamison, as before, was called up first to receive his very first Best Acting Award. But, Erik didn't follow right away. No, instead, Kayleigh was called to collect her second Best Book Award. Of course, she was thrilled. And a couple of other awards were handed out before the music category was announced. Erik gathered up his 36th Best Song award and the three left the studio to go home to their other five kids waiting to finish up their Christmas festivities.

    So yesterday, 6 of my sims family all froze to death... The rest of the family are all so sad. Today, mum was cooking dinner and started a fire. The fire alarm went off, firefighters arrived... and panicked! Must be new to the job! My sim teen tried to put out the fire and burned to death! I think it's time to move house!
    Weird question... Does seeing the toddlers cry break anyone else's heart? :( I feel so bad for them, i want to hug them myself :p

    Bummer. Is there anyone left to care for said toddler? Breaks my heart, too, to hear them cry.

    Alabaster, not, but I considered Diamond. But as the babies are bound to be olive-skinned redheads like their parents, naming them after white gems seems a bit funny

    Played a bit of my PC sims, not a huge game session, but each family was played a bit.
    I aged up my children to teens, and my babies from infants to children. Didn't actually play through the stages, just had them bake a cake, and age them.
    Due to a mods/cc glitch, some of my teens ended up with no faces, or a slight disconnect from their heads and necks. I was able to fix the no face thing in my game, but not the neck thing.
    The reason I did this, was that I don't play my PC Sims as often, and wanted the kids/teens to be able to do their own thing, and not have their parents have to stop what they were doing to take full care of them. I have one Sim, Pandora doing the million Simoleon challenge, having to take care of her son Jake took up a lot of her time. I also aged Jake up to a teen to help his mom complete the scenario.
    So, my game play wasn't too exciting this time around.

    Found a bug I had missed while testing. My sim's hot weather outfit turned evil and bugged her out, preventing her from changing clothes and making her icon invisible. Still not sure whether it's the hat or dress (likely hat, because she's had the same dress for ages and there has never been problems with that, while I can't recall ever using that particular hat before).
    My laptop is back from cleaning and the fan is now sooo very loud. It really hates loading Sims 4 for the amount of CPU the game takes with the packs and cc

    I pulled my Mods folder, for what it's worth. Backed up my game yesterday after I quit playing for the day. I should make a note for myself as to where I left off. Lest I get confused. :open_mouth:

    Update: nevermind, I have to apologize to Rose's hat, that is very nice and not evil at all. Turns out that the real culprit was her innocent-looking, owl-printed nightgown all along. Tray importer revealed that it was missing some parts of the file, which caused an error when trying to change into it. Which makes a lot of sense in retrospect, because every time I reloaded the save, problems started when she was going to bed. It only took me an hour and using 3 different tools seeking faulthy cc to come to this conclusion. A true scientist I am 😂

    Rose finally gave birth, after what seemed like a million years. I ended up naming her triplets Amber, Sapphire (girls) and Emerald (boy). No pics, because all sim babies look the same in a way that even the mother doesn't find cute (Rose literary took one look at them and went back to cuddling her bunnies. Can't blame her, the bunnies are fluffier.)
  • DoloresGreyDoloresGrey Posts: 3,490 Member
    The saddest thing happened. Geoffrey passed away 4 days before his and Nancy's wedding. Nancy mourned him. She sold their house and moved to the city where she coincidentally met Don Juan Lothario and soon they started to date. Once they were watching a movie and after that Don proposed to Nancy. She said yes. Ghost Geoffrey watched all this from the sofa. Then Don and Nancy went to bed.
    And then this happened: Geoffrey came into the bedroom and cried over his and Nancy's photographs :'(
