    Today's little update, I am still having fun at university so
    been playing that mostly this week hehe.


    Thank you.


    Its morning and Walter Fullman lazily walks by to the kitchen.


    Ayana Yuki almost chokes on her food at the sight of him.


    Full photo


    Skip Taylor does not bother about getting dressed before he goes outside.



    Pamela and Jeffrey had fun the evening before


    poor sim who is going to use this computer.

    All for today

    @Silverofdreams30 , Ayana's reaction to Walter made me laugh! :smiley:

    Stuart went to the bookshop to buy some books about nectar making. After that, he couldn't resist taking a closer look at the portrait on the wall behind the merchant's desk.


    He knew he should keep his opinion to himself, but his avant-garde trait was stronger than his politeness.


    "Ugh! It's terrible!"


    The merchant turned around. "Excuse me?"


    "Um... nothing!"


    (I love his sudden Bambi eyes in the last picture!)

    Ryan has started his career as a Criminal lawyer. And his old bedroom has now been converted into his study, congrats Ryan.

    P.S I accidentally posted this on the post for new members having issues with their games. Woops.

    Secondly, my god removing memories and having memories off reduces load times absurdly, never turn memories on. Not worth it.

    @bekkasan Do you think Alice wears the pants in the relationship because of her impulsiveness? :lol: Hehe thanks. I'm pretty sure it's a Craven pattern :smiley:
    @jonny522 Welcome back. I hope the new save will improve your loading time. I'm happy to hear that Ryan and Mona got married to their partners. SP just looks complicated at first. You might find that you don't have to change many of the settings at all, unless you want to play rotationally.
    I hope Ryan is successful as a lawyer. He is going to be a very accomplished sim :smile:
    Turning memories off is usually one of the first tips for improving game performance. It really makes a difference.
    @GraceyManor I like how the roles have reversed and now Shifu is the one showing her how to have fun. Crane must have that hat glued to his head lol. I think might be starting to have a teeny tiny crush on Ena. He's so proud of her :smile:
    @Turjan Thanks! :smiley:
    @ZhakiraP Thank you very much :smiley:
    @PalmArrow Thank you :heart: That's a good idea! I just checked and it seems like the website never came back after that initial burst of popularity :disappointed:
    The cashier looks eerily similar to the person in the painting. It's almost like Stewart realised this and is comparing them. He looks so full of remorse in the last pic.
    @Silverofdreams30 Go grab it, it's a great hair. I posted the retexture I have in the dull pictures thread.
    Ayana's reaction is so funny. Maybe it's a warm day, no need for a shirt. I like the pattern on Pamela and Jeffrey's bed cover.
    @emorrill I usually prefer shorter hair too but I was testing some new hairs and this one just really seemed to suit him. Y'know I picked out that sweater with you in mind because I know you like a bit of chest hair showing :tongue: Ooh I'm curious to know who he looks like!
    Is carving pumpkins difficult? Brr sounds like a cold night for you. And here I was sleeping with no covers on and my fan going :lol:
    It will be quite hard to find the right pose with the right accessory. Have a look at this list if you haven't already. Also here and here.Do you want them sitting or standing?
    @meerkattime Aw so unlucky! Do you have Saver installed? It's a mod that brings up a screen asking you to save every hour or however you want it. It's probably saved my bacon a few times.
    I love how your sims are both looking at the kids. Like they're saying "what did you do?!?!" :lol:

    Just posted an update to my blog, which has 534 screenshots (I don't use them all, I just find the best ones for that moment in time). I'm also moving the screenshots to my external hard drive, as the count reached 10177 items. Time to start a new sims 3 blog stories folder!
    Sims 4 Family: Benjamin, Wendy, Chloe, Shine, Tiffany, Roddy, Sophia and Hamish Furystrykar.
    Let those smiles spread!

    My first set of images since a while.

    Lindsey went to get a makeover with Alex.
    It didn't work out.
    Ryan is going to the Magistrates hearing for his first proper court case. Ryan is acting as defence for a 43 year old taxi driver being charged with insurance fraud and reckless driving.(The man crashed into a pole, and two witnesses in the car claimed he intentionally steered the car into the pole). The magistrate decides that a case should go forward, and the driver pleads not guilty.
    Ryan does some prep work, and now the first day of trial. Good luck!
    A painting by Lauri (Ryan's wife), "An Italian Villa"
    Good news. A new Baxter is on the way, Mona's pregnant! Ryan is just checking up on her.
    After 5 days of trial, the jury deliberates for 30 minutes and finds the man not guilty on all accounts. Congrats Ryan(see Spoiler for details).
    Ryan was able to effectively argue two accounts. The first being that both the Taxi Driver and one other passenger on the front seat saw a flash of light, indicating that something was on the road(it was most likely a plastic bag, explaining why it wasn't found on scene).

    He was also able to argue the second account that the two back passengers wouldn't reasonably have seen the bag, as it was dark, they were tired, and they were both talking between each other. Further he was able to argue that the Taxi drive while being tired, was not too tired to drive a motor vehicle. The jury stated that he was not guilty and that he was in no way liable for the accident.

    @coco Yeah disabling the memories has helped a ton. Before I was regularly waiting 50 minutes for a game to load. Now it's normal for me to just get a glass of water and the game being loaded upon my return.

    Stuart is an interesting sim.


    Hehe, thank you.
    wow dramatic photo.


    Thank you

  • Silverofdreams30Silverofdreams30 Posts: 5,593 Member

    Todays update


    Always the same guy every day lol.




    I kinda ship these two Ayana and Walter,
    they are so cute haha.


    Nicole wants to sing karaoke.


    Skip has no time to date, always busy on his computer.



    Pamela's grades are good.


    I noticed Ayana and Liz sang karaoke


    TV time.

    All for now.

    @DeafSimmer Uh oh...trouble in pony paradise? :(;)
    "If you allow Tirek to steal magic from the supernaturals one more time... I may not trust you again."
    ^I get the reference! :mrgreen:
    That showdown with Tirek...talk about one of the most epic battles in MLP history! :star: No...one of the most epic in all of CARTOON history!
    *If anyone is curious, see video clip in Spoiler*
    Wait...did Discord really have a fling with Queen Chrysalis? (In your story, not the show? :p I already know the answer if we're referring to the show ;) Of course I haven't seen Season 9 yet so...). Poor Luna. :pensive: I hope not...
    Yeah bring on the Royal Canterlot Voice!
    If you've watched MLP, you know who that bug queen is...
    ^Yes indeedy! :mrgreen:

    @Silverofdreams30 Ayana's choking face! :lol: Nice capture on that one!
    Skip Taylor. :love:
    Wait, I thought only teens could prank stuff? :confused: Unless adult sims can when they have the childish trait??
    Cid licking the ice cream cone. :smirk:

    @PalmArrow Oh my gosh your post there was the highlight of my morning! :lol: That was hilarious!!!
    Poor Stuart...

    @jonny552 Congrats to Ryan! I love how you set up the picture there with his graduation robes on and the 'law books' in the background. ;)
    I didn't realize turning off memories reduced lag/load times. Sweet! I just got sick of them after a while (those smiley faces popping up over their heads when I'm trying to take pictures) so I just turned them off.

    @meerkattime I guess having all the candy to yourself isn't a bad thing? :smirk: Well, it kinda is, but we all gotta live a little right? ;)
    My mom told me that in Montreal Canada they had to postpone Halloween until tonight because of the horrible blizzard-like weather last night... :flushed: That's how our weather was back on Tuesday! It was awful! And that's when the record lows were recorded.
    Hee hee, sorry. It's a good song to get stuck in your head right? ;) I like the Living Tombstone's remix of it, I'll admit it. :p
    TSR has the BEST seasonal items! :star:
    Perhaps my sims just decided that this was enough spooky experiences for today ;).
    ^Poor kiddos. :(
    So hey, PM me on how things are going okay? <3

    @coco Aww, you put that shirt on Logan simply for my enjoyment? :blush: You are wonderful! I very much indeed enjoyed it! :mrgreen:
    Pumpkin Carving used to be pain in the butt in past years, but they've created so many various tools for it now that it makes carving MUCH easier and less messy! (I always wear latex gloves when carving or my fingers will be orange for a couple of days! :grimace: ) I'll have to show you the pics I shared of carving our huge pumpkin with @bekkasan in a PM - if I remember. :p
    Ooooh! Thanks for the links! :kissing_heart: I did look all over Lana CC finds, but maybe there's something in those tags I missed. I appreciate it. <3
    I want them to be sitting. :)

    @Steamvarius *Waves* DANG! That's quite the bucket load of pictures! :open_mouth: I swear I have about that many in my Quantum Leap fanfiction story combined!

    @emorrill Chrysalis is luring Discord into a trap. Yes, I saw the finale. That GIF made me chuckle. You'll see more today.

    ^Oh, well that makes sense. ;)

    Yeah I don't have cable TV so I have to wait until Season 9 hits Netflix for me to watch it. :p

    Glad you liked the GIF. :lol: It made me laugh too!

    I haven't played in a few days...my game is laggy as heck for some reason and I can't stand all the stuttering.
  • emorrillemorrill Posts: 6,852 Member

    Sorry to hear. :(
    That's when I realize it's time to check my mods and see which are causing problems and then purge them. 🙌

    @coco I totally found a couple of coffee cups for my needs in those links you shared. Thank you thank you! <3 Now to see if they work/show up in game. ;)
    I also hope the mug is CAStable...

    I think sims with certain traits is able to prank the other
    sims in the dorm. I never saw who did that prank.

    Only mods I have right now are Nraas mods

    Story Progression can cause that, another issue that can cause that is a sim frequently getting stuck. Do you have SP and has it been downloaded recently? Or do you have Errorwatch and does it frequently return "Sim Unroutable"?

    I've added a small park with a carousel to Champs Les Sims, because the carousel just fits in perfectly there! The little greenhouse is a cafe.

    Ryan meets with his boss discussing the possibility of him working with a team of lawyers for a case that is going to the court of appeals. He accepts as it will be a learning opportunity. (Side Note: His boss is a QC, which indicates a very skilled and experienced lawyer).
    Hello Torrey, Mona's son.
  • GraceyManorGraceyManor Posts: 18,240 Member
    @Coco I saw @emorrill comment about your sim and I went and took a look.
    To me he reminds me of

    Young Richard Gere from First Knight.
  • GraceyManorGraceyManor Posts: 18,240 Member
    Everyone took the next day off again, as it was a holiday.But Ena kept on training.
    Shifu: Alright, Ena.You can take a break you know?
    Ena: What?
    She looked down and lost her balance; plummeting to toward the ground.

    Ena: Nice catch...
    Shifu: Are you alright?
    Ena: I'm ok...

    Ena: And now I go back to training..

    Crane: I think I'll join you.I could use a stretch.

    @jonny522 Its nice to see you again and hope that your other issues are resolving and that your game is behaving better.
    SP is complicated, and yet once you figure it out it is amazing what you can control and change in your game. I only added the main module to start with and figured it out and then started adding the others one at a time. I've started experimenting with castes just in the last 6 months or so. Amazing what can be done.
    Congrats to Ryan in his new career.
    I've not used memories in so long I forget to tell folks to turn them off. :wink:
    bummer that Lyndsay's makeover didn't work out.
    Congrats on Ryan winning his first case.
    Oh...Baby coming. Congrats to Mona.
    Oh...baby is here! :smiley: Congrats on the little boy. Torrey, great name.

    @GraceyManor Lol at the expression on his face in the last picture. She sure has changed from fun and frolic to workaholic.
    Bummer about the lag in your game. Hope you can get a handle on it. I've found a few player made worlds that have routing problems that cause lag, or are so full of stuff that it lags.

    @Karritz Glad you found most of them. :)

    @Turjan Thanks for the comments. I hope I'm not sorry I built such a big lot, sometimes they can be reasons for lag. So far, it is behaving.

    @king_of_simcity7 Hope the weather is great and that you are having a fun trip.

    @ZhakiraP Intriguing hint!

    @PalmArrow Thank you! That is turning into my favorite picture of them.
    Cute pics of Stewart reacting to the painting and the merchant!
    The greenhouse cafe looks so cute! I love the carousel and that is a great place to add it.

    @Silverofdreams30 Thanks! I hope it will soon be time for the baby.
    Yes, I don't like sims burning foods either.
    I'm kinda loving your uni save too! All those handsome fella's! :love:
    Love the funny picture of Ayana
    Great uni pics of them having fun.

    @emorrill I enjoyed the Skeleton dance!
    I'm sorry, I can't help with this cc search. :(
    Looks like @coco found a few things for you. :smiley:

    @meerkattime Thanks so much for the comments. :smiley:
    No Jennifer wants to be in the journalism career and after the baby she will start that. She's writing books in the meantime.
    Thanks! That is my favorite picture of them.
    Oh my! I just hate it when mine crashes with CAS. That is a great picture of them reacting to the fire.

    @coco No, Adam definitely is the one wearing the pants. Alice will listen to him when no one else other than Victor could stop her from doing something. She respects him and knows he is looking out for her. lol....doesn't mean she won't try to wheedle or win him around, but, mostly behaves when he is insistent.

    @DeafSimmer I'm glad he wants to stay loyal to his wife! I hope they don't follow him and hopefully he will have time to warn them of the plan so they can make preparations!
