    Well, I know it’s getting old seeing me make excuses about why I’m not playing my game, but here we go again. This time, I fell and broke a rib. Pain management has been my main goal for the last 6 weeks. I was able to log in a few weeks ago long enough to grab the free kit. I’m much better now, and planning to get back to some gameplay.

    Owie! Take care and get better!

    @mightysprite Thanks. I'm working on it. I did log in to check on the updates, and got this little gem.

    @cyncie Wow! Is that a mod or in the game?

    @GalacticGal Thanks. I had improved quite a bit, but my trio had three performances in five days, and the movement and mic holding made it worse again for a week and a half. But it's much improved, now.

    @cyncie Wow! Is that a mod or in the game?

    @mightysprite That's being generated by the Sociable Sims mod by Plumlace. You get more variety of social interactions between sims. It does generate more phone calls and texts, but they're actually pretty fun! I think I posted a call from Grim wanting to hang out a while back. There is an update that fixes the animals calling, but I'm not sure I want it, now! I think it's hysterical that Cashew needed to tell Morgyn his opinion on Bob's fragrance! Listen, anything can happen in The Myst.

    @cyncie Hope you are feeling better! Also, I haven't played my game in a couple months. I am doing an event with one of my games, and got a new MMO game, which distracted me for a bit.
    I do plan to get back to my game soon, though. Sometimes I just take breaks from all games, just so I don't get burnt out.

    Thank you. I agree a break is sometimes needed.

    You're welome.
    I like playing video games, and I will play some for like a week straight, but you can burn yourself out pretty quickly doing that. I will usually switch it up, and play games I haven't played in a bit, but when I just don't want to play games I will do other stuff.
    Forcing yourself to play Sims 4 may not be good, because then you will probably not want to play it. If you aren't having fun with it, taking a break isn't bad.
    I have loaded my Sims 4 game again recently, but that was more to explore the Gallery to get ready for the next time I load the game up. Still finishing up an event for another game, though.

    My Sims had to take their dog to the vet and suddenly I saw a werewolf rampaging inside. I thought he was taking himself to a vet, but it turned out that he was Jacob Volkov who had a sick cat that needed to be cured. :D

    I've been playing with my high school dormitory household this week. It's a temporary home for teens from Sulani or Mt K, or whose parents just want them out of the house. And at the moment Hugo Villareal because he was orphaned and his siblings were kidnapped by a vampire.

    The current setup:

    Ray Cahill and Kendall Hecking are here from Sulani. Kendall has the high maintenance trait and is always upset about something.

    Desiree Delgato and Malcolm Landgraab just have rich parents who wanted them to go to boarding school.

    And Hugo.

    In another household, I had previously aged Dina and Nina Caliente down to toddlers and had Katrina marry into one of my families so they've been growing up in my game. They are also at the teen stage now. Malcolm and Dina started a relationship right before prom started so they couldn't go as dates, and Dina showed up in her cold weather outfit instead of a prom dress, but none of that stopper her from becoming prom royalty, or Malcolm the jester. And they had a great time.

    Ray also had a great time and had a gold star prom experience despite not having a date or winning anything, but the only pictures I got were of him swimming at the after party.

    Desiree, Hugo and Kendall did not go to prom because they are a week younger so I consider them underclassmen and they don't get a prom until next rotation.

    @Kimmer a werewolf with a pet cat. Silly Sims. ;)

    @Daephene Very interesting idea, having the kids in Boarding School. Sounds like fun.

    Ever since I got the crystals pack, I've been trying to use charged crystals to get triplets. Three different games, with both partners having fertility reward and wearing bracelets and necklaces and earrings with several crystals in the room and nothing but single births.

    So I stopped trying and went to a game of newlywed ranchers - no crystals, no rewards, first birth was triplets!

    Long time, no update for a bit.
    Decided to play a bit of my PC version of the Sims. Which has the base game, romantic garden, backyard stuff, and mods/cc.
    A brief recap for the family is that I am doing the million similion challenge with a Sim named Savannah Fox. Last time I played her, I had her marry Johnny Zest, more for love then money. They ended up expecting a child
    Savannah ended up taking a retail job, and Johnny Zest was pursuing a comedy career. Savannah job was in the morning, and Johnny had his job at night, so the two of them only saw each other for a few hours a day. However, Johnny saw less of Savannah when he had to level up skills for his job. Savannah did not have to do that herself.
    Savannah had a female friend that came to hang out with her for a few hours everyday, and Johnny met her the first time she came over. The friend asked to come over everyday, and hung out with both Savannah and Johnny, or Savannah. Sometimes while she was over, Savannah would dig in her yard, harvest crops, and search for frogs.
    As the days went by, she entered her second stage of pregnancy. That didn't slow her down. Her third stage lasted the longest. She went to work, and the baby still didn't arrive. Her friend was over, while Johnny was at work. Savannah was sleeping while her friend read a book nearby. Shortly before leaving again for the night, Savannah woke up due to entering labor. Her friend started to leave, but came back when Savannah was giving birth.
    Savannah welcomed a little son, I named Fennec Fox. Used the cake to age him up to a child, and changed his eye color and hair color. I also gave him some outfits. For his eyes, I gave him his mom't CC eyes, which were a light blue. His hair matched his dads, but when he aged up, he ended up with black hair and orange tips. I changed his hair to a very pale blonde, lighter than his dad's blonde, but not the same color as his mom's hair color. Savannah has silver/white hair, so I made Fennec's hair pale.

    Thank you, can't wait to see him as a teen, but he will stay as a child for a bit. I may give him a sibling soon. Both Savannah and Johnny have a good relationship.

    In my castaway challenge Rose and Armitage got engaged. Armitage had led his household on an expedition to the jungle, when suddenly he got an invitation to a date from his girlfriend from the other household, Rose. The location she suggested? The bar in the jungle! That means she must have followed him into the jungle, how adorable is that?

    So they dated, he proposed and she accepted. And then Rose did this:

    a16a308ae8f48627f76b7a43f70876645d22a6d7.pnj

    Armitage? If there ever was a task you absolutely had to NOT botch, then this would be it.

    85e5556d63efe2ec347b5516887a3a4019add239.pnj

    What did I just tell you, Armitage?!

    4e9d5a53491689ede563c0f0d8f2fa42235c883a.pnjPhew. He caught her and that expression is priceless.   I remember that this interaction could fail in Sims 2, not sure about Sims 4. In any case this looked so risky from the angle I was watching it!
    Currently playing: Castaway Challenge

    Played my PC version of the game for a bit today.
    I was testing it a bit for cemetary/haunted/spooky ideas. Most cemetaries weren't for the base game, but I did find one. I moved the cemetary as a national park, and then moved the same cemetary next to it in New Crest as a residential lot. Found an Elsa ghost to move in, so a ghost would be among the graves. Then I moved Anna, Merida, and Rapunzel as ghosts as another ghost Elsa into the lot. I had to sell a lot of things from the build to give them basic stuff like beds, a kitchen, and a toilet.
    Both Elsa ghosts had died from drowning, so if they stayed in an area for too long, they would leave puddles on the floor. Which they would clean up afterwards. They would randomly possess things, and Rapunzel broke the toilet twice. She did a ghost repair which fixed it as well, she would fly into it, and fix it from the inside. Rapunzel would eventually phase through the first Elsa, which she didn't like at first, but then found it amusing.
    Rapunzel, Merida, Anna, and the second Elsa spent their first night exploring the gravesites, and hanging out, while the first Elsa slept through the entire night. In the morning, the other four went to sleep, while the first Elsa got up, and looked for a job. She got a job in babysitting.

    This was a little test, because for my PS4, where I have most of the packs, I want to do something similar. I want to get a different cemetary, and move a normal living Sim onto the lot, but also move in ghosts to be their roommates. They will be different ghosts, but I wanted to see what was needed to make it work. or I may make a full ghost household. I want to make a New Crest in one of my save files a fully haunted/spooky area, so ghosts, vampires, werewolves, etc.

    Thank you, I did.
    Next time I play my other version, I will make one of my New Crest neighborhoods into the haunted area.

    Today I went through my game and restored some communities. There were a lot of empty houses where Neighborhood Stories and MCCC moved people around and out, so I fixed some of the blight, especially in Del Sol Valley. When I was checking out Granite Falls, I paid Harry Bigfoot a visit. Seems the residents of the Falls belatedly realized they never gave him a Welcome Wagon, so they showed up with fruitcake, tea and a nice visit on a rainy evening.

    @cyncie Bigfoot looks pleased by the attention!
    I like his house and decor. The idea that Bigfoot spends a lot of time using nail polish is hilarious.

    @mightysprite Thanks. Harry is a gentle and simple soul, but he does occasionally enjoy a spa day at the Lazy Owl Spa in Mooncrest, and he won’t say no to a mani-pedi! His dream is to start a wild unicorn rescue. One day I’ll try to make that happen for him.

    My RL book group started talking about fun activities for book clubs, and I thought I'd see what my sims thought about the idea. 😄

    Haven't played the Sims 4 due to playing and event for another game. However, played the PS4 version of my Sims.
    First family I played was my million simoleon challenge. With my Clement Frost, Luna Moon, and their daughter Emma MoonFrost, and son Jack MoonFrost. Emma went to high school for the first time, and did fairly well, even though she was pretty tired. She also went to sport's day for school. Afterwards, Luna and Emma went to a horse show. After the show, Luna looked at the horses for adoption, or to buy. She ended up buying a black and white foal that was renamed Oreo. Her funds that she had gained after marrying Clement Frost, and selling things, put her back a bit after buying the horse, but she loves her new addition. Clement, and Emma have been too busy, or too tired, to interact with Oreo . Jack has helped his mom with taking care of Oreo.

    Another family in a different save had a few new things happen as well. Link, Epona, and wolf Link (large dog) moved into the stables in chestnut ridge. Wolf Link settled right in, and Link bonded with Epona. After settling in, the focus switched over to one of the neighbors.
    The neighbors I focused on were based on the novel Grandmaster of Demonic Cultivation. Last time I moved Wei Ying and his husband Lan Zhan into their own home, and gave them a rabbit stump. One addition was edited in was their son Lan Sizhui, who I made a teen. Wei Ying helped Sizhui with his homework, and Lan Zhan introduced his son to the rabbit in their yard. Wei Ying later took a job as a teacher, since he did not have one before. Lan Zhan took a job as a detective. Since Sizhui didn't have to got to school for another two days, the family of three went to a few festivalsand other places.
    First festival they went to was the spice festival where Wei Ying joined the spice competition, and then later sampled all the food. Lan Zhan and Sizhui stayed with the food from the vendors. After that they went to the festival of lights. Each family member bought a sammicapsule. Wei Ying's got stuck, so he had to shake the vending machine to get it out, his character was a common character. Lan Zhan's capsule came right out, and he got a gold edition character. Sizhui got his capsule right away, and his character was Yamachan. After that Wei Ying and Lan Zhan made a wish together, and Sizhui made his own wish. They left to the magic realm where Wei Ying and Lan Zhan bought rabbit familiars, and Sizhui bought a dragon one. All three bought the same wands, but skipped on the brooms. Then prom started for Sizhui, who still hadn't started school, so technically he 'never goes there.' Wei Ying tagged along, and Lan Zhan joined a bit later. By chance, even though he was still never attended to school yet, he was crowned prom king and Cassandra Goth was crowned court jester.
