    @Puddinroy thank you. I'm feeling lots better thank you but still a long way from being over it. Still coughing and generally sick. It is the final performance of the play today and I missed the three already performed this weekend. So I'm going to make sure I go along to be in it today. Fortunately I didn't have much to do in it so I don't think I was greatly missed.

    I've been thinking of scenarios of how I can get Eric and Oscar to visit that world. The only problem I see with it right now is none of Eric's relatives live there. But they are going to be off on adventures and I'd love to include that world in my videos.

    Megan has come over to stay around Tammy's for the night. It is the first time that she has stayed over but Tammy makes her feel at home. After a night in watching films the girls talk in bed.
    'It is nice staying someone where without having to drink,' said Megan 'Anna always wants to start drinking when she stays over otherwise she gets bored,'
    'Does she do anything else with her time?' asked Tammy.
    'She is only interested in partying,' said Megan.
    'We don't have to go to parties all the time,' said Tammy.
    'You don't think that I am boring then?' asked Megan.
    'No, of course not, I like having you here,' reassured Tammy.
    'I think that some people find me boring,' said Megan 'because I am shy,'
    'I feel like that,' said Tammy 'I have always found it hard to make friends,'
    'I feel closer to you than I do to Anna,' said Megan 'as I can tell you stuff,'
    'Did you feel like you could never talk to Anna?' asked Tammy.
    'We used to talk about a lot of stuff,' replied Megan 'but she has told me weird stuff before,'

    @coco Thank you. He does look like a llama :) I´m glad you enjoyed it.

    @Nikkei_Simmer Thank you. I hope you will like the rest of it as well.
    It looks like Horace will be very useful and kept very busy. Interesting story, and world.

    @Silverofdreams30 Thanks, I like your characters as well :)

    @meerkattime Thank you.
    It looks like the girls are having fun in China.
    It looks as if April is doing well in her career. Lol at the romantic sing-o-gram :p .
    Mmmm pizza.

    @Charlottesmom Hey, wb. Haven´t seen you around in a while.

    @GraceyManor Thank you.

    @bekkasan Lol, creep vibe :D . I know what you mean though.
    I like your update, congratulations on the black dragon :)
    I´m glad they defeated the fire without anyone dying.
    The consignment specialist looks awesome. I can imagine the before :p

    @jonny522 - sounds like Ryan has to develop a good opening argument in trial; were the men in the vehicles or behind? If so they could claim fog of war and that “molotov cocktails were thrown with the intention of injury to the defendant and his fellow soldiers. Man Ryan’s got his work cut out for him. Sounds like the judge has already made up her mind.
    @afai1261 - sounds like you have an interesting save starting up.
    @DoodlyDoofus - Man, Ed sure ain’t the type for making friends.
    @afai1261 - great update

    Page 3719

    @emorrill - writing is fun when the muse cooperates.
    @Karritz, @charlottesmom, @emorrill - I hope everything’s going well with @Craven
    @GraceyManor -that town you found looks terrific in the winter.
    @jonny552 - Ryan is going to be a busy little lawyer sim considering he’s got the case with Soldier D and now this one’s going to a team he’s on. Martial arts is always fun in the sims. Looks like Alex is enjoying it.
    @bekkasan - I’m looking forward to it as well since I’m hoping that I can make enough to cover our expenses and maybe put a little aside so that I can manage to set up a good gaming machine. Then we have to save up enough for a vehicle and after that a downpayment on a place of our own. Lots of stuff to consider. But even though a part of me is really nervous having been out of work for a spell, it’ll be nice to not have financial worries when I can manage to find that job. Prices for double-wides are insane up here. The good ones are in the 6 digits.$139,900 and up. @Featherbelle and I may have to work two jobs each to get the full-time hours necessary too. But well. I’m just gonna put my nose to the grindstone. And press on. :mrgreen: Wellbutrin’s helping with the anxiety and it feels good to not feel “worried” all the time and able to tackle tasks a lot more without feeling overwhelmed. Hoping that you’re OK 👍
    I’m going to write more on that story I’m working on and maybe I can get a manuscript out to publishers. It might be a good premise. And I need to develop the plot and figure out how the disappearances came about. Maybe I might be able to call myself a published author one of these days. :mrgreen: bucket-list item.
    @GraceyManor - that’s awesome. I hope your mystery buddy likes what you give him/her.
    @bekkasan - I love those dragons. I need to snag Dragon Valley one of these days. Oh awesome it’s a black dragon. I gotta get the Gold edition of that world. :mrgreen: Thank goodness Adam managed to get that fire out.
    @meerkattime - it’s a good thing that sims do not suffer concussions. They might need to take it easy on the conjuring.
    @sleepstar -gotta love cats; mine are always sticking their faces or bodies between me and the iPhone right when I’m trying to do something. Had the cat end up turning off my computer. Really convenient when that happens..not.
    @PalmArrow - glad to see Tamsin progressing in her position. That world is stunning. And it was nice to see Stuart enjoying a cone at the Fester park
    @meerkattime - looks like your sim is having fun with exploring the tombs.

    (More later - just making sure I don’t get behind)

    The Way of Life
    Chapter Five
    Preparations

    The poisons in the atmosphere came and went, depending on the rad-meter's readings; if there were clouds in the sky, the rad-meter readings jumped, if there were clearings in the sky, the rad-meter dipped slightly, but in that regards the UV index jumped, neither radiation was healthy even though the UV radiation was natural. Since the ozone layer had been affected by the nuclear exchange, more UV rays were getting to the surface of the earth and thus the potential for adverse effects on the human physiology increased.

    Horace had placed two rad-meters outside the bunker entrance one on the roof, one on the ground and they were in the process of reverse-engineering more rad meters to place around the general vicinity so that they could get a more accurate reading of the current radiological situation. It was time-consuming but necessary in order to make sure that they would remain physically healthy. And the question that everyone in that bunker asked themselves was, would the earth heal itself enough that life on the planet's surface would be possible again. Horace even went so far as to go into the radiation hot-zone with one meter to make sure that they always knew what the radiation reading in that area was, back at home-base - after all prevailing winds could carry the radiation up the hill and contaminate the area without them knowing and while their personal dosimeters were reading the surrounding area's radiation level, the level could be silently increasing without their realization.
    Screenshot-190.jpgScreenshot-191.jpgScreenshot-193.jpg Noel, with the help of Horace, had built another plumbot to assist in daily tasks around the bunker. And she also backed up Horace on his excursions outside of the bunker, especially when they went out to obtain soil samples from the area in order to determine the extent of soil contamination by radiation, radiological water contamination by fishing for fish and assessing their exposure to radiation. All of this took time out in exposure on the surface, that only the plumbots could do without significant damage. Any biological being would be writing their own death sentence if they had to stay out for the length of time that it took to get all the samples that they needed. Exposure was down to about half an hour exposed, perhaps a bit more if protected. The Eight had all pushed the upper limit of exposure with fighting the fires and were not willing to risk their lives any further, so it was up to Horace and his partner, Hildegard to keep them informed.
    Screenshot-194.jpgScreenshot-195.jpg Meanwhile, the Eight had their work cut out for them. They made potions and elixirs, as well as researched anti-radiation technology. Mickey worked on the his inventing skills to try to come up with items that could potentially help. Sending tunnelers with rad-meters attached to them enabled them to figure out what areas of the bunker could be potentially expanded without contaminating the bunker from the leached rainwater into the soil. It was a matter of time before they would need to expand the bunker as the children of the Eight would end up being a part of the bunker and they had to have enough space to fit them all.

    Of course all that time at the surface made certain that Horace, a lower level plumbot than Hildegard, had to spend time in the recharger as he'd come back to the bunker with his batteries nearly drained.
    Screenshot-197.jpgScreenshot-198.jpgScreenshot-199.jpg Of course there was also time for recreation of a more intimate sort. Haruo and River decided to partake in skinny-dipping...of course that decision translated to other things. Yeah, they were checking for chronic cutaneous reactions to ionizing radiation...in layman's terms, skin lesions. No...really... Haruo looked her over and made sure that their exposure to radiation while fighting that fire had led to no complications...at least on the surface of their skin. It was a check that had to be done. After all the possibility of radiation poisoning was on everyone's mind.
    Screenshot-200.jpgScreenshot-201.jpgIntimateMomentswithRiver1.jpg Of course Haruo wasn't the only one looking at a certain person's rear-end. Let's just say others had other things on their minds as well.
    Screenshot-204.jpg Noel was too busy making nanites and trait chips to look at anyone's rear-end.
    Screenshot-206.jpg The plumbots being tasked to do things, did the things that they were asked to do: milking the cows, making nanites and even cooking. It helped as it freed up the Eight to do things such as increase their skills to help their survival and it helped that Noel was getting even closer in bot-building to developing the RoBotany trait chip. Once the garden was in the hands of the plumbots, they would help keep the garden growing.
    Screenshot-207.jpgScreenshot-208.jpgScreenshot-209.jpg Meanwhile Haruo, Phil and Holly tackled some more alchemy research. If this new world of theirs, after the nuclear holocaust, had triggered magical properties, then they would have to learn to live in it under the new rules and they would do whatever it was that would ensure their survival, including turning into supernatural beings, altering their lifespan and other things. After all, adapting was the first step to overcoming obstacles.
    Screenshot-210.jpgScreenshot-211.jpgScreenshot-212.jpg Potions also were helpful; the sleeping potion enabled them to get as much sleep as a full eight hours of rest in half the amount of time. So a lot of time and effort were spent on ensuring that they had a steady supply of those potions. Sleep was also when they were most vulnerable and being tired under stress had a nasty side-effect called paranoia. And they were all under stress: seeing their town blown to smithereens, having to stay underground in a fortified bunker, having to battle an invisible enemy (radiation) and trying to ensure that they all survived.
    Screenshot-213.jpgScreenshot-214.jpg On the surface, life was not fun and games. The clones were getting hit left and right from lightning. Evidently they weren't smart enough to get under cover to avoid the storm. Luckily for them, other than a severe jolt to the nervous system, it appeared as though they were impregnable to over 7M volts of energy coursing through them. To put it lightly, it was rather shocking.
    Screenshot-218.jpgScreenshot-219.jpgScreenshot-220.jpgScreenshot-224.jpgScreenshot-228.jpgScreenshot-230.jpgScreenshot-231.jpgScreenshot-232.jpg The days came and went as everyone did what they had to do. Phil still attacked his alchemy research while others honed their potion-making skills and Mickey invented things.
    Screenshot-233.jpgScreenshot-234.jpgScreenshot-235.jpgScreenshot-236.jpg River, being dedicated, honed up her martial arts by training with Haruo and she ranked up to blue belt. They squared off in the ring with the traditional respect given to each other as martial artists. When they were in the ring they were martial artists first and foremost. An overhand strike by River was countered by a roundhouse kick to the head which was ducked under. There was no room for lovers in the ring, a martial arts fight was literally you were trying to take the head off the other opponent. That's why it was called the martial arts - of or appropriate to war; warlike... Your main objective was to incapacitate the other guy. There was no two ways about it. And in a survival situation you were ramped up to kill mode: if it was against a real opponent in war, you would take him out by any means possible.
    Screenshot-237.jpgScreenshot-241.jpgScreenshot-250.jpgScreenshot-253.jpg Not letting that faze her, River threw yet another overhand strike and immediately went into a roundhouse kick of her own that Haruo barely countered.
    Screenshot-265.jpgScreenshot-268.jpg ...and so it went back and forth, Haruo attacking, River countering or vice versa.
    Screenshot-273.jpgScreenshot-279.jpgScreenshot-285.jpgScreenshot-288.jpg Haruo pressed the attack and barely avoided a countering roundhouse by River but immediately pressed another counterattack and recorded a strike.
    Screenshot-292.jpgScreenshot-295.jpgScreenshot-298.jpg In the second round, they traded blows, countering them each time with their own countermoves and so it went: overhand strike, mawashi-geri, spinning forehand strike...neither one gaining an advantage. Haruo was very impressed with his protege.
    Screenshot-303.jpgScreenshot-309.jpgScreenshot-317.jpgScreenshot-321.jpgScreenshot-323.jpgScreenshot-328.jpgScreenshot-332.jpg ...but he didn't let it show...during the course of their match. His face was grim as was River's. They weren't fiance/fiancee at this very second in time, they were opponents matched together in a martial arts ring and the only thing on their mind was to defeat the other and that was how it should be in martial arts. Each of their countermoves formed no set pattern, no rhythm; it kept each of them guessing as to what the other's next move would be. “Be extremely subtle even to the point of formlessness. Be extremely mysterious even to the point of soundlessness. Thereby you can be the director of the opponent's fate.” ~Sun Tzu, the Art of War.
    Screenshot-337.jpgScreenshot-338.jpg It was a hard-pressed battle, but eventually experience won the match. And that was a lesson in itself. Experience is a hard teacher because she gives the test first then the lesson afterward ~Vernon Law. Asides from a few bumps and bruises where each had contacted on each other - they were relatively unscarred.
    Screenshot-339.jpgScreenshot-340.jpgScreenshot-341.jpgScreenshot-237.jpg ...and of course everything was assuaged by a kiss...
    Screenshot-342.jpgScreenshot-343.jpgScreenshot-344.jpg Even in the midst of training and research, there was time for love.

    Interesting world, I like the look of your sims they seem
    to have really intense days sometimes.

    Nice to see a new update about Stuart, he is an interesting
    character.

    Today, Drake, Iris and Rachel were in the arcade room. Time for a gaming session!

    Gaming sessions over, time for a bit of an ice sculpting. What on earth is this, exactly?
    Screenshot-821.jpg
    Drake invented...something I've forgotten the name of:
    Screenshot-880.jpg
    And Rachel carved a chair out of ice. I'm pretty sure that's actually a weird form of Pykrete she's using:

    Rachel then harvests her plants:

    Drake's standing around in the living room:

    Iris walks in like a princess. It's not a very quick way of moving, but it's moving, nonetheless. She walks gracefully towards Drake:
    Screenshot-952.jpg
    And then Iris glomps Drake, giving him several smooches on his face:
    Screenshot-968.jpg
    She then tickles her brother:
    Screenshot-985.jpg
    Drake went bright red and giggled. Iris had covered his face in pink lipstick smooches. He smiled and wiped the lipstick smooches from his face. Iris was being quite affectionate towards her brother. 'I love you, bro!' Iris said, smiling sweetly and batting her eyelashes at Drake. 'I love you too, sis!' Drake replied, beaming.

    @GraceyManor Have fun building. :smiley:

    @meerkattime Thanks so much for the comments. :smiley:
    Yes, was time for a bigger car.
    The girls look like they are having a great time in Shang Simla.
    Don't you love those drip dry clothes they have, and hair!
    Love the marshmallow roast picture!

    @Sleepstar Well, darn those cut little cats! I had one that loved to sit right in front of me partially on the keyboard. I figure if they ever take the keyboard off it will have little cat hairs underneath. :open_mouth:

    @PalmArrow That is a great venue and your sims will enjoy using it. Thomas will soon be old enough to go with them and have fun at the park too.

    @Puddinroy Thanks for the comment. :) Hope all is well with you.

    @Karritz I'm sure you will think of something. :smiley:

    @ZhakiraP Thanks for the comments. :)

    @Nikkei_Simmer It is certainly a great start to the story. That would be awesome to get that done on your bucket list!
    I'm managing. One day at a time is my motto. Thanks for asking.
    Thanks for the comments on the story too. I'm enjoying being with them again.
    Great update on the eight. Love the martial arts pictures of River and Haruo. I love the intensity and yep, mine do that after too! :love:

    @Sigzy05 Great uni pictures!
    It really does sound like an sad version from what I've read. But apparently less for more cash is the new motto at EA these days.
    Folks can spend their money how they choose though.

    @Silverofdreams30 Thanks so much for the comments. :) hehe, she got a new outfit yesterday. I didn't like the one with heels anymore. :wink:
    Love the update at the beach. Everyone looks so happy.
    lol at the floatie mostly on the sand. Good sunbathing that way though.

    @Nikkei_Simmer Thanks for the comments, I read your comment about the Judge Advocate mod(sorry that I didn't reply but I did read it). And no I use a normal lawyer mod from MissHissy's job centre, and I replace the ranks with real life ranks from a mix of the British and American legal system(QC is a British title of skill meaning Queen's Counsel, which doesn't exist in America for obvious reasons).

    In regards to the defence, he will highlight the fact that petrol bombs are difficult to track and the soldier was behind vehicles (but a vehicle catching fire is very dangerous none-the-less). He'll mainly try to argue that the judge was hyper-analytical for a situation that was over before she completed her sentence, and that absolutely necessary cannot be extended to the extent that she did, as to do so leads to situations where soldiers will fire and wound active gunmen yet still not follow the law due to the range, making self defence in such situations by extension impossible.

    @jonny522, ah yes, the vaunted Queens Counsel; we have them in our justice system as well and since I live north of the US; a Canadian, still loyal to our Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II. Our court system operates on Crown vs. Accused; the judge representing the authority of the Queen of Canada (and The UK), the same as the court system of our brothers and sisters in Mother England. I tend to go with the US JAG for military court cases as the Sims 3 uniform tends to typically resemble the USAF.

    I do believe the British Army has something similar in the Adjutant General’s Corp. a group of military lawyers though like the US and Canada active service members undergoing prosecution through the military courts-martial proceedings do have the right to retain civilian counsel. :)

    Midnight Hollow, The Ballan Family
    Adam's Quest

    Jennifer and Wisteria enjoy a break from their books and plants and play a few games of Gnubb. Wisteria wins and giggles happily and Jennifer laughs with her. Jennifer is truly happy that Wisteria has become so relaxed with her and the rest of the family. She teases Adam and Marshall like brothers. She treats Alice and her self like long lost big sisters. She watches Wisteria with Dedric and sees the same love for him as she and Alice have for their men.
    49007688068_cb0ca4d51e_b.jpg

    Dedric is trying to master his athletics and practices shooting hoops, taking a break from the treadmill and the weight machine.
    49008220176_40cf38a082_b.jpg

    Alice takes a break from her spells and works on a painting she has been wanting to do since Dedric and Wisteria's wedding.
    49008432262_1f565f9c2e_b.jpg

    Marshall wants to improve his martial arts and is working on the board breaker. He loves the sound the boards make as he smashes his hand through five boards at a time. Adam tells him he will start on stones soon. He wants him to break 150 boards total before he starts on the stones.
    49008219896_7f25585329_b.jpg

    Adam shows Alice the new staircase and watches her as she walks carefully down the stairs. He has noticed she even takes the stairs in the main house much slower now, and wonders if they should invest in an elevator. "I'm not going to fall. I have to go slowly since my center of gravity is so huge right now."
    49025999076_9074bf18a2_b.jpg

    She gives him a crooked smile. "It will all be worth it in a few weeks!"
    49025486708_c3c0d9666d_b.jpg

    Adam hugs her to him and pats her belly. "I can't wait!" He takes her hand and walks her down the hall to where they have stored the statues.
    "Wow....these look totally ancient! Maybe even older than Rafe who is centuries older than Dad anyway. Rafe's eyes are going to bug out of his head when he see's these in person. He won't even care about the baby."
    Adam grins. "Well, they were already planning to be here for the baby, so I think he is gonna care about the baby too. I think he will enjoy trying to unravel this mystery while he is here."
    49025486688_a1e60646cb_b.jpg

    The furniture has been placed in the lair by Adam, Dedric and Marshall. The girls gather the rest of the stuff for the room and finish decorating. Jennifer places the wall hangings around the lair, while Wisteria makes the bed and arranges the flowers next to the bed. Alice hangs two of her favorite family photos on the wall. Everything is ready for Victor and Gardenia to arrive.

    Alice takes the finished painting and puts it in Dedric and Wisteria's living room over the sofa. When Dedric returns from his second exercise session Wisteria pulls him to see the picture. Dedric tumbles with her onto the sofa and they snuggle under the beautiful wedding portrait kissing and hugging and Wisteria cries a little from the splendid gift that Alice brought them.

    Briana shows up unexpectedly that evening as Alice and Adam were relaxing and asks to talk with Adam. Alice waves at Briana and goes upstairs to give them some privacy to talk. Briana spins into her tale immediately with all her teenage drama and angst.
    "My Mom and Dad are driving me crazy!"
    She throws her hands around in the air as she tells Adam what has upset her.
    "I don't want to go to university! I thank the Fates that I was not picked to go to the palace to live as your Mom was. I want to explore the world. There is so much out there to see. Dad said he would pack me up and send me to the Queen if I even consider running off on my own. Once you are in the Realm you cannot get out without the King's permission. Well, you can't get in it either unless you are someone special like my Mom and Dad are. They could take me with them and I wouldn't be able to leave. I will just die if I get sent to the Realm! Adam, you have to help me. You could talk to my Dad and I know he would listen to you since you lived for years on your own. I was hoping you would teach me some survival techniques. I'm not completely stupid about taking off on my own. I was going to join a group, others like me who want to explore, so I've been really pushing my athletics and learning my plants and what is safe to eat and all that. I'm just not cut out to be a scholar or someone's perfect housewife, but I don't know what I want to do and this would give me time to decide. Dad didn't even want to hear any of that!"
    49014118031_95c95b12d0_b.jpg

    "Briana, you know your Dad is not going to listen to anything I say and to be honest, I can understand his hesitation about your plans."
    Briana gives him that teenage eye roll and starts to interrupt and Adam holds his hand up. "No, I listened to you, now, it is my turn to talk. You are still a teenager and your plan needs thought and structure to be safe. Perhaps some friends that your Mom and Dad already know would be the kind of companions your parents would want for you to see the world with. Going off on your own would not be safe, and like minded strangers is dangerous as well. You need to develop a specific plan of what you want to do, where you want to go and how you will fund it. You are not expecting your parents to fund your exploration are you?"
    Briana blushes.
    "That is not very adult thinking if you are. Perhaps talk with Autumn, Alice's aunt when they come. She and Rafe are still exploring the world. She can give you some advice and guidance. She was not a teenager either when she started exploring and she was a vampire and trained by Victor to take care of herself."
    "You also need to consider that university is not just about learning facts from books and becoming a scholar. Its a time to stretch your imagination, find out who you are as well as meet new people or get closer to the ones you go with. You can learn a lot of useful skills at university as well as hone the ones you have already been working on. It is also a great time to just have some fun too. University was great for all of us even though Marshall almost died. It certainly taught us that you can never be completely prepared for everything, but, you can deal with the challenges that life throws at you with friends at your side. I can teach you hunting and martial arts which are both great survival skills, but, I will only do it with your Mom and Dad's blessing."
    49014118136_8a7367ef9e_b.jpg

    "I will think about what you say. I had not thought much about the preparation, just what an adventure it would be. To be honest Bran suggested I talk to you. He's the smart twin. I seriously wouldn't try to run off. My parents don't need the stress after what happened with Nissa. Bran and I are still amazed they had the courage to have us."
    "Briana, you are smart in your own way. Don't negate yourself. You've got lots of energy and imagination and are at least willing to listen to others even when upset about your Dad and Mom's dislike of your plans. It's obvious you love your parents or you wouldn't be here asking for help."
    "I'm so glad you found us. Its cool having someone else to talk to about things in the family other than Bran. I will talk to Mom and Dad and ask about the lessons. I can pay for the lessons by babysitting for you when you and Alice or the others, or all of you want to go out. You don't want to trust the sitter service. I've heard some of them are klepto's and don't really like kids!
    She hugs his neck and tells him to hug Alice and pat the baby tummy for her or she will be late for curfew. She flies out the door still swinging her arms around, but now with excitement rather than anger.

    Good night nelly everyone! This weekend got SO busy I was away from the thread for about 24 hours! :flushed:
    The withdrawals were bad... :confounded:

    A few little comments here. (L&A's handed out. <3 )
    It is nice to know you are working hard on the story! Still not ready to share it? :lol::tongue:
    @bekkasan ^Not yet...I sure wish though! ;)<3
    I'll comment on your updates here in a sec. :kissing_heart:
    writing is fun when the muse cooperates.
    @Nikkei_Simmer ^Oh yes! :grin: Glad to hear your computer is fixed. :star: (I read that correctly right?)

    @Puddinroy Hi back. :)

    @Silverofdreams30 Ooooh that Stephen Brackney. :love:

    @king_of_simcity7 I need to catch up on your story thread. 👍

    @Sigzy05 I'm sorry to hear Discover University wasn't what you (and I'm sure many others) expected. :( But it's always nice to see you pop back in here and enjoy playing Sims 3 Uni! :blush:

    I hope you all had a nice weekend. I enjoyed all of the pictures and updates posted here. I'm sorry that I'm unable to comment on all of them at the moment because of a splitting headache :grimace:

    Just wanted to say to @bekkasan that I really enjoyed the dialogue between Adam and Briana. He didn't talk down to her at all, and his advice was really helpful. She's a good kid and I can understand the fear of being stuck in a place that you can't escape. I absolutely love all the photographs and paintings you put around the house! I'm glad that the frames above the fireplace didn't get burnt. Bummer that the table and chairs aren't quite working properly. I know in my experience that sims angle their seats away from table if there's something else in front of them like an empty plate. I'm not sure what's happening with the routing in your game though :frowning:
    @Charlottesmom I know I just talked to you but I love it whenever you post here lol. What's this about Craven posting a video and then deleting it? :confused:

    Ok I'm going to log off for a bit so I'll see you all later :smile:

    @Nikkei_Simmer I'm sure all is very well with Craven. As I said, he vanishes for months at a time quite regularly. Maybe not every year, but he does it a lot. I've occasionally wondered what he gets up to. It's obviously seasonal. I'm sure he'll return full of fun when he's ready.

    @SuzyCue72 I always play with Story Progression On. This includes when I relied on EA's version. I was mod free until after Sims 4 was released. I almost always play with aging turned on too, but have turned it off occasionally although that hasn't happened for a very long time now. I did have some problems with a single sim once a few years ago when she got somehow set to never age. I managed to fix her by first setting the entire town to never age and then setting the entire town to aging on.

    @bekkasan I'm sure I'll come up with some idea. It may not necessarily be practical or doable but my ideas resource seems limitless. I also, at this moment, have no idea what you are talking about but I'm sure it must be a response to something I said recently. :)


    I am very unwell from my cold still.

    I went to the final performance of the play yesterday, didn't really expect to be allowed on stage due to me still coughing and unable to sing. I thought I'd return some items I had at home and maybe sit out back. Instead I got told to choose a seat and watch the play. It was already booked out and they had a few extras who had booked after it filled up. They thought some people won't show up but I think they all did. Luckily they had a good supply of spare chairs stashed somewhere.

    When in the audience for plays I often find myself wondering when it'll be over. But this was enthralling to watch. I loved every minute of it. And I got to see lots of bits I had no idea were happening.

    I was working with such a wonderful group of talented, hard working and friendly people it is sad that the whole thing has come to an end now.

    I've been working on Episode 24 of Oscar's Childhood. I am currently saving the mp4 file. Once that's done I'll watch it to be sure I haven't done anything silly and will load it tonight or tomorrow. It's not very long compared to other episodes of this series, but I can hardly talk at the moment. I seem to sound ok on the video. Hopefully I'll be fully recovered soon. Doing a lot of coughing at the moment. I'll post a link here when the video has successfully loaded to YouTube and been made public.

    Happy Simming

    @jonny522 Congrats on him mastering martial arts.
    I did the martial arts tournament over several trips to Shang Simla with my first sim that did it.
    If you use Nraas mods you can do it in your hometown.
    That is a very dark night, but pretty!

    @coco Thanks so much for your comments! I am sorry about the headache and hope it goes away fast! Ice pack over your forehead can help.
    It was fun writing the dialogue. When she came in she was so dramatic and throwing her arms around I just had to add it in. Em said something about the routing too in her comments on my story thread. I'll look at the lamp over the table and maybe switch it to an invisible one. Wouldn't that be funny if it was just the daggum lamp! I have a base lamp on the extender chain that came with one of the store sets. Maybe the tables don't like it.

    @GraceyManor Cute pics of her interacting with the baby. I do love it when I spy my sims ogling their mates. All three of mine finally got the faithful moodlet. :smiley:
    New villain perhaps?

    @Karritz Sounds like a nasty bug! I hope it gets better fast. If not, please see the doctor. Bummer you couldn't do that last performance, but nice that you got to watch it from the audience viewpoint.

    @Silverofdreams30 Thanks for the comments! :smiley:
    Pamela and Stephen make a cute couple.
    Go Walter!
    Jeffrey might be sad, but he won't be heartbroken long!
    Cid! lol...he looks so cute posing. I guess your walls must be down as that looks like the back of the fridges he is looking at.
