  • Claire is now a toddler! I gave her the Charmer trait. And now I've decided to go back to my Carter-Hayes/royal save. :D It's quite a change going from a family who's got to be careful with money to a family who have over 4 million Simoleons :D :D
  • @Sims4MagicalTales Sounds like a lot of fun in your game! Is yours a traditional, rule-following legacy challenge? I've been tempted to do a legacy in the past but a) I'm too attached to my mods (I know that rules stipulate you can't use mods that put you at an advantage over other legacy players) and b) I prefer creating…
  • One thing I've just noticed... I was a little confused when my Sim, who's maxed out Cooking, was unable to make Heart's Desire Waffles or the Pleasantly-Unpleasant Waffles. Once she'd made some batter with the mixer, she got the option to make those recipes. There was a similar thing with the pizza oven, where she was…
  • The issue with links etc not working properly seems to have been resolved. I read the chapters…
  • I’m not particularly attached to any one lot. 930 Medina Studios is a pretty good size, although I forget how much it is and if you can afford it with 20,000 Simoleons. Many of the other affordable apartments are pretty small in comparison, especially if you’re a family player like me.
  • I have MCCC set to allow me to name the babies that are born in my saves. Emilia Ernest (married to Darrel Charm) just gave birth to triplets! Two boys, who I named Jasper and Matthew, and one girl, who I named Martha. Good luck to her with three infants... :#
  • Mmm, banana slices! (I think it was them... :# ) Infant mucky faces are so cute <3 She looks a little worried, but she was really enjoying playing with her toy. Baby Joseph! Go Claire go! Teaching infants to crawl has to be one of the most frustrating things, it takes so long :D I'm still interested in the food table idea,…
  • Amanda had the baby! It’s a little boy called Joseph. The family are struggling with money right now, so maybe I should get a sales table and get Robin to sell some of the stuff he cooks. Or wait until someone earns 5,000 aspiration reward points and get a money tree seed :D
  • @Sims4MagicalTales No problem. Hopefully it gets fixed soon. I don’t know why it’s happening.
  • I haven't taken many screenshots lately... I like the way The Old Salt House looks, with its modern furnishings. Claire has started solids! Her first food was apple sauce, which she liked. Like nearly all infants, she loves ice cream. She's also tried peanut butter puffs (in the finger foods) list, which she likes too. She…
  • Just to let you know that forum links seem to not be working properly. If you post the URL directly, e.g. https://lucyhenleymagicalmastersons.blogspot.com/2023/07/chapter-twenty-four-taste-of.html , it seems to be OK. But if you add text (e.g. in my signature) or link the URL to a screenshot, it doesn't work. If you hover…
  • Just to let you know that links don't seem to be working properly on the forums for some reason. It's not just your thread. I did manage to get to your story, though, as I have it in my list of "most frequently visited sites" on my phone. I think it works if you post the URL directly rather than linked to a screenshot or…
  • Yeah I've noticed this. At first I thought it was just a particular person's thread/blog but it seems to be everyone's now. If someone posts the URL directly, i.e. not linked to a screenshot or text, it works fine.
  • I’ve noticed that there are three upgrade options for the waffle maker and pizza oven: unbreakable, self-cleaning and ‘speedy bake’. I’m not sure how much faster the food cooks if you use ‘speedy bake’.
  • Yeah, fair enough. Should’ve thought of that one! Don’t know why I didn’t :D
  • My Sim Robin made a pizza with the new oven! If you hover over the food whilst it's cooking, it tells you how long it has left to cook. This applies to the pizza oven and waffle maker. The appliance will ping when it's done.
  • Particularly with the frowning face! And yes, the waffle maker also gives an indication of how long the food has left to cook. Now I want pizza and waffles... *drools on keyboard*
  • Mmm, Robin's making a pizza! If you hover over the food whilst it's cooking, it tells you how long it has left to cook. I've only used the pizza oven so far, I don't know if it's like this with the waffle maker too.
  • I ended up using motherlode to give the family enough money to move out to the Old Salt House lot. It wasn’t so much the ghosts as the constant noise from the neighbours!
  • Daddy-daughter snuggles <3 She doesn't have the Snuggly Sleeper quirk, but she does love being held so I thought it would be nice for her to sleep in her dad's arms <3
  • 18 Culpepper House has the Spooky lot challenge. Felix Psyded has turned up and he's angry unfortunately, so he's haunting objects and breaking them. Ugh. :|
  • I recently had a stay over request from the Bheedas in my new save. I had to decline as Amanda and Robin only live in a tiny, one-bedroomed flat!
  • She looks so serious awww <3 I gave her the Sunny trait, which seems somewhat at odds with her serious look here! Horse Ranch came with a cute little horse onesie, and here's Claire wearing the rainbow swatch... I don't know which is cuter, the furry bear one or this horse one... Since there's a patch later, I'll do my…
  • I wish the lottery worked like it did in Sims 3 (there was a lotto feature with Into the Future). There were multiple prizes to be won, not just the 1 million Simoleons grand prize. I remember the first time I had a family play the lottery they won 100,000 Simoleons, and the second time the family won about 50k Simoleons.…
  • Amanda is doing well in her law career, she’s already a paralegal (level 4) and I’ve only been playing the save for a week and a half (Sim time). It’s useful that both law and the critic career have the work from home option, so someone can always be around to look after Claire. I’m going to see if they can earn enough…
  • Welcome to the world, baby Claire! Not had an infant in my game for a bit. Trying to raise one in a small apartment should be fun... or maybe not. At least she won't be crawling for a while...
  • Do anyone else's Sims randomly develop a dislike of the colour yellow? I have no idea where that comes from. It happens to so many of my Sims.
  • Amanda and Robin also have a kitten called Silver (grey British Shorthair). I <3 the little mewing noises kittens make, they’re so cute! It’s kinda funny when they’re running around the place and end up tripping over/face planting. They just get right back up and carry on like nothing happened :D
