    Yay! They're finally in the jungle! Can't wait to read all the shenanigans they're sure to get up to. \o/ Some thoughts on this chapter in the spoiler. :)
    First of all, I love your Eco Lodge, it has a rustic, rundown, yet still functional and usable feel that's perfect for them! Almost like back home at the asylum. I got a chuckle out of the bathroom area having glass doors though. hehe No privacy for the erratic eh? ;) I like how you used the glass roofing plus all the vines creeping and covering everything. Great job, it's fabulous!

    Seeing Rocky dipping his Llama toes in the swimming pond made me smile. Such a fun character! lol Wouldn't it be ironic if he happened to find a Llama toes fossil? :p

    Boy, Midge sure seems to get obsessed with games easily! Is she as good at chess as she is at Don't Wake the Llama? I think the lady just likes to compete and loves to win and feel superior. lol Cool idea using the satellite dish for a satellite phone reception device. I love the clever way you invent things like that in the name of realism. :)

    Wanted to ask, where is that fishing area in JA? I've seen those waterfalls I think, but the only fishing place near them I've found is on the dock/pier behind the marketplace? I'm guessing it's down a path from their lodging. Probably from a lot I haven't used yet. Anyway, it looks like they're enjoying themselves so far. I wonder how long that'll last. o.O

    Looking forward as always to the next chapter! <3

    @Karababy52 - Thanks so much for reading and commenting. I had actually built that jungle eco-lodge almost a year ago but never posted it in the gallery. It actually was for this challenge. Then, just recently added some of the jungle plants and the "rain roof". Since everything was outside mostly, and it rained while they were there, I figured a "rain roof" would be a good idea for this build. The sat phone idea was from me researching cell phone reception in the jungle...and found some interesting things out. But, yes, a satphone you can get reception anywhere in the world, a cell phone, not so much. Glad you liked that bit in the story :) The problem with the build is that it is very small inside and really hard to get pics, but they won't be staying there long. lol The deck area overlooking the waterfall and fishing area are close to the Selvadorada Villa lot (rental $618/day). Your sim can actually walk to the marketplace from their lodging.

    One thing about being on vacation is that you can't access the start or end clubs feature. So, whatever these sims do while they are on vacation is all autonomous. They are not being "controlled" by any of the club activities. The only thing that can be done is by clicking on Louis, he can "form a group", and "go here together". That is it.
    So, yes, Midge, on her own went to the chess table at the lodging and on that deck. She definitely is a gamer! lol I guess she aced the Don't Wake The Llama game, and wanted a new challenge. I love all of the quirky things that these sims do on their own.

    Hold on! No, it can't be! Two up-dates in a row? Unheard of...but, yes, it's true. The Arrival Day had a lot going on, so I decided to split it into two chapters. And so we have another up-date as they head to the marketplace. Enjoy and comments and suggestions are always appreciated. Have a great day everyone!

    Nothing says good idea quite like liquored up mental patients on vacation.

    I'm sadly a bit behind.

    @SoulGal7 Oh cool, wasn't expecting that! Ah, yes, that's why I've never seen that fishing area, I've never rented that particular lot. My Sims usually cheap out and go for the one with creepy crawlers. Or the romantic hideaway if it's a couple. I'll have to check out that lot the next time I have a Jungle Explorer Sim. Thanks! :)
    LOL! Oh Midge, Midge, Midge, give it a rest and let someone else win Lady! Ah well, at least she's having fun! :) I hope she finds a feather for her cap too! And yes, that's one of the very reasons why I've played the Asylum challenge three times so far, the autonomy on, uncontrolled actions of the inmates. I normally micromanage all my Sims, so it's a treat for me to see what they do on their own. You'd think I'd learn from that, to loosen my grip and let my regular Sims run wild sometimes since I enjoy it so much. But nope, I.just.can't.do.it! o.O lol Oh well...

    Enjoyed the little flirtation going on between Louis and the lovely Selvadoradian chica. Maybe we'll be treated to a little Jungle romance eh? One can only hope! Interesting info about the crashed airplane too. Me thinks you're implying something interesting with that little tidbit! ;) We'll find out soon hopefully!

    Muwahahaha! @VanPelt81 Your comment is spot on perfect to describe this chapter! Love it! <3

    @VanPelt81 -Oh my word! Funny!

    @Karababy52 - Yep, I know about the micromanaging of the sims - lol...but for the next 3 days, at least, these sims, except Louis and Viviana are free to roam and go wild. No club activities to control them either. lol I just think it is just so funny that Midge is now drawn to the chess table. I should test her out and put her in a room with a Don't Wake the llama Table and a chess table. Which one would she choose? lol And Rocky was in love with that drink...he had a few of them, I lost count. They were all just so hilarious in this chapter. At one point I didn't know where they had gone and thought they had gone back to the lodge or something, and that is when I saw them down at the outhouse. And I got the "lining up..." moodlet. And not just one of them either...there were 5 of them down there, and the restrooms in the cantina were empty. Ahhh...sims! lol

    Odd to see Mowgli more clothed than normal considering how close he is to the jungle now.
  • SoulGal7SoulGal7 Posts: 1,451 Member
    @VanPelt81 -Yes, for sure. That was the random Maxis-generated summer outfit. But don't fear, everyone will be in their "jungle" looks when they enter the jungle in a few chapters from now :)
