Chapter 3.5 – Ghosts Don’t Have Bodies

Chapter 3.05.jpg

Hello! Last time Sam caused yet another set of twins, making that three sets total, and bringing the child count this generation to SIX kids. I also did a name dump on the one boy Cress gave me. Onwards!

Screenshot

Ciri: Wow, now that I’m older this house seems so much smaller.

Cerys: It’s still just as dirty though. Grandpa’s pee puddle is still here! Gross!

Screenshot-2

Priscilla: So… Tired…

Screenshot-3

Well that’s a great start to the chapter. -5

Screenshot-4

Bart: The child is asleep on the kitchen floor. Does she not know she has a bed?

Screenshot-5

Priscilla: Blaaahhhh I’m still so tired!

Screenshot-6

Cerys: Eh heh. Um, ooga booga! Maybe you should go to bed?

Screenshot-7

Is that Debbie in the pool behind you, Bart?

Bart: I am trying to do my homework, but it is tough concentrating while there is a ghost splashing around.

Screenshot-9

Debbie: Wheeeee! Why didn’t we have one of these while I was alive!?

Because we couldn’t afford it then.

Screenshot-10

Hey your body disappears under the water!

Screenshot-11

Priscilla: Will I ever be allowed to sleep?

Debbie! Priscilla was FINALLY in bed! Did you have to haunt that specific chair?

Debbie: I do what I want.

Screenshot-12

Cerys: Ooo the perfect opportunity to scare my unaware sister!

Yes the shower is broken and water is leaking everywhere. Cress doesn’t have the time to go around fixing everything at the moment!

Screenshot-13

Cerys: Wait. Oh Plumbob. She’s naked.

Screenshot-14(1).jpg

Cerys: Hold the phone. What are those?

Screenshot-15

Cerys: Will I have those when I grow up?

Screenshot-16(1).jpg

Ciri: AHH! CERYS! What are you doing!? GET OUT!

Screenshot-17

Ciri: My little sister saw me naked. This is so embarrassing!

Screenshot-18

Ciri: You wouldn’t believe what just happened to me. Cerys just watched me have a bath!

Bart: Is this a thing humans enjoy? Because as a child, everyone would demonstrate anger and embarrassment when I would observe them in the bathroom.

Ciri: What? No! I wasn’t LETTING her watch!

Bart: I do not comprehend. Why were you not stopping it then?

Ciri: I didn’t know she- Ugh you know what? Nevermind.

Screenshot-19

Someone’s getting rid of the leaf pile!

Yen: It was time. I’ve heard about its magical influence, and it shouldn’t be allowed to affect anyone else.

Screenshot-20

Alex: I’m so OLD!

He’s been checking out his wrinkles multiple times a day since he got older.

Screenshot-21

Yen: Water balloon fight!!!

Screenshot-22

Cerys: Hahaha good one!

Screenshot-23

Cerys: But I cannot play right now. I’m disappearing into the mist *backs away slowly*

Yen: I think my sister’s crazy.

Screenshot-24

So Iko or Thorne or Kai or Cinder (don’t remember which one) invited Cress to their costume party! Some of the family wanted to attend a party, so I took them along too. Sam and Bart both dressed as hot dogs XD

Screenshot-25

Cinder: You look like a monster in that costume!

Cerys: That’s offensive to my alien brother.

Screenshot-26

And in the middle of the party Thorne became a daddy! Way to be supportive during the birth of your baby.

Screenshot-28

Sam: You are now SURROUNDED BY HOT DOGS! You shall not escape!

Cress: I don’t like it!

Bart: I need to empty my bladder but the bathroom is occupied!

Screenshot-29

Cerys: What can I say? I needed to bathe.

And you couldn’t have waited until you were at your own house?

Screenshot-30

Yen: Woohoo! Twin adventures!

Priscilla: They’re the best kind of adventures!

Screenshot-31

Cerys: Hahaha mom is OLD!

Cress: Hey it’ll happen to you too. Just you wait.

She did not go through a midlife crisis! Woot woot! Alex did though. Maybe that’s why he’s always checking out his wrinkles?

Screenshot-32

Congratulations Bart for being the first one to use the foosball table!

Screenshot-33

Cress: Do I have some “Abduct Me” sign stapled to my forehead or something?

Screenshot-34

Aw Bart is such a good brother.

Screenshot-36

Johnny: I am being held by a giant hot dog. I don’t know what to think about this.

Screenshot-37

Um Cerys? Don’t you have somewhere you need to be?

Cerys: I don’t know what you’re talking about. I think this is where I belong right now.

Screenshot-38

Well at least you’re being somewhat helpful while you skip school.

Screenshot-39

Why do sims flock to watch people play guitar, then don’t leave even if their needs are in the red? Johnny is exhausted Bart! Put her to bed! Ciri stop playing and go eat something!

Ciri: The guitar is more important than survival.

Bart: Cannot escape the music’s grasp.

Well at least she can’t pass out while he’s holding her?

Screenshot-40

Cerys: Heyyy grandpa! What do you say to scoring me some points on that game again huh?

Priscilla: Way to be subtle sis.

Screenshot-41

Bart: Well you are looking as radiant as a freshly developed pearl in the mouth of an oyster.

Debbie: Well thank you sonny. I think. Is the oyster’s mouth open or closed? Because, you know, that would affect the radiance of said pearl. Is this a compliment or an insult!?

Screenshot-42

Bart sure does love to compliment people.

Screenshot-43

I find it amusing that a ghost is telling a ghost story.

Screenshot-44

Johnny: You play good Bat?

Screenshot-45

Bart: I believe the term used is I am burying my opponents.

Screenshot-46

Sam: Is Cress around? Is she pregnant again?

No, you have caused your last set of twins.

Screenshot-47

And it’s their birthday today!

Screenshot-48

Well would ya look at Kai looking all elegant and stuff on the piano!

Screenshot-49

Anyway, Johnny is again the first one to age up even though Arze was born first because he was otherwise occupied.

She is now clumsy!

Screenshot-50

Sam you better hold it in this time!

Screenshot-51

Johnny: I’m sorry. I don’t have enough practice getting to a toilet on time!

Don’t give me that. You’re potty trained! -5

Screenshot-52

Arze: It’s my birthday too guys!

Well I was trying to get you to a cake but look at where you are!

Screenshot-53

At least someone was able to watch him grow up.

Ciri: Well I was going to give him a bottle, but now I don’t really know what to do.

Screenshot-54

Anyway, he is now shy!

Screenshot-56

And it’s the next day and these two (Rich Wheloff and his son) are still here. Rich called us up all like “Want me to bring my kid for a play date?” So I said Sure! and they still haven’t left.

Rich: Shhh the play date was a ruse. We are now part of the family.

Screenshot-57

Isn’t it a little cold for you guys to be out in your t-shirts?

Screenshot-58

Prom has arrived!

Screenshot-59

Wheloff kid: Hey it’s getting kind of chilly out here.

Screenshot-60

Cerys: Well look behind you! There’s a nice warm house over there!

Wheloff kid: Huh? I don’t see no house?

Screenshot-61

Cerys: Hahaha how cold are you now!?

That’s great Cerys. Give the kid pneumonia.

Cerys: Yeah maybe then he’ll finally leave!

Screenshot-62

Cress: Ahh fresh clean laundry!

And a laundry gnome! It’s a bear!

Screenshot-63

An alien device? Bart wasn’t trying to get someone else the crown was he?

Screenshot-64

Sam: My meditation has reached new levels! I feel as if I’m floating!

Screenshot-65

Sam: Wait, but I wasn’t meditating. What the plumbob is going on?

Screenshot-66

Sam: Oh look I can see through my hand!

Sam nooooooooo!!!!!!!

Screenshot-69

Sam: That’s pretty cool πŸ™‚

Screenshot-70

Grim: It is your time Sam Sanity.

Uh, he’s on the other side of the wall.

Grim: Death is not bound by walls!

Screenshot-71

Meanwhile, Ciri was off finding love at prom!

Screenshot-72

Sam: I don’t want to leave my family though! Please let me stay!

Aw that’s just the cheated LTW thing talking. He also got the drab grey box but I gave him his deserved gold urn!

Screenshot-73Screenshot-74

Poor Bart wasn’t having as much luck as Ciri. Until another girl swooped in. And he also got prom king.

Screenshot-76

But you just hooked up with another guy. Ok then.

Screenshot-77

Also we got a cat! Ciri’s been wanting one but I didn’t have the option of adopting. I guess cause there were ten sims in the house. But I have story progression set to allow a lot more so I’m not sure why I wasn’t getting the option.

Anyway, this is Nibbles.

4 Nibbles

Nibbles is named after this cat that shows up from time to time!

Screenshot-78

Kai found himself a fiance!

Screenshot-79

And thus ends the previous generation 😦

I’m gonna miss Sam and his love of dancing.

Screenshot-80

Yen: Hello! You may now call me Princess Yennefer. I shall no longer respond to my previous name of Yen.

Screenshot-81

You’re cleaning yourself half buried in snow?

Nibbles: Da snow helps ta clean da fur. Meow.

Screenshot-82

And now you’re rolling in the dirty water after getting all clean.

Nibbles: No. Da water is clean. Adds da glisten.

Screenshot-84

Nibbles: Meow.

Screenshot-85

Sometimes the kids just don’t come home from school.

Ciri: They’re the most peaceful times.

Screenshot-86

Paparazzi: Hey kid don’t look so glum! Cheer up! Live a little!

Screenshot-87

Wouldn’t it be more comfortable doing your homework at home?

Paparazzi: Oh hold on gotta get this. It’s probably my boss.

Ciri: I miss my gramps! You opened a floodgate woman! Why’d you have to cheer me up and then abandon me!?

Screenshot-88

Cress: So. I guess me or Alex will be the next to go in this household, huh?

Arze: *concentrating on homework*

Priscilla: *concentrating on TV*

Cress: Good to know you guys love us.

Screenshot-89

Nibbles: POUNCE ATTACK

Screenshot-90

Priscilla: AH! What the plumbob?

Nibbles: VROOM

Screenshot-91

Priscilla: What was that for? I was just minding my own business, you dumb cat.

Nibbles: I dunno what yur talking bout.

Screenshot-92

Alex: Hey kid, what are you doing on our computer?

Screenshot-93

Donte (yes he’s a boy. With that stupid hair that everyone grows up with): You can’t scold me if you can’t catch me! Hahaha I’m outta here!

Alex: Just like Sam was </3

Screenshot-94

Arze: Haha catch me if you can wimp!

Johnny: Oh you’re on!

Screenshot-95

Arze: K seriously though I’m getting tired. Why are you so slow?

Johnny: Shut up! I don’t have the stamina!

Screenshot-96

Nibbles: Growl! I don like da moosic. Hiss.

Ciri: Why doesn’t the cat appreciate me? 😦

Screenshot-97

It doesn’t take long before Sam is out and haunting! And he found the hot tub I randomly got cause Cress had a wish for one. Even though we’re now broke. Cause Sam was the one bringing in the cash. I dunno if we’ll be able to keep paying the bills.

Sam: Well that’s a jolly greeting.

Screenshot-98

Oh Iko, what have you gotten into now?

Screenshot-100

Look who was promoted! What is that like your first one since you married into this family?

Alex: Hey it’s the tortoise that wins the race.

Screenshot-101

Marc: Cool party bro!

Cress: Thanks. Don’t call me bro.

Screenshot-102

So what happened?

Iko: I don’t wanna talk about it.

Screenshot-103

Kai: Oh yeah! I’m schooling these gnomes!

Marc: Hmm, yes I believe you are. Fascinating.

Screenshot-104

You didn’t even give us a chance to do the actual birthday part yet.

Iko: Hey! I have things to do! I was in the middle of something, if you couldn’t tell.

Screenshot-105

Yup, it’s Cerys’ birthday! Another kid entering teendom!

Screenshot-106

And here she is. She skipped school too much and had dog person locked in. Seriously. Animal-related traits and alien abductions are like the recurring themes of this legacy. She grew up with that hair and I thought it looked decent enough πŸ˜›

Screenshot-107

Kai: *Sobbing* I miss you grandma and grandpa! It’s been so long!

And then he whipped out his keyboard and started playing down there. Seriously. I didn’t get a pic though because I only realized what was going on when someone had the keyboard thought bubble and I was like “Where is it? We don’t have one so someone else must have brought one.” and couldn’t find it until I remembered Kai was down here. But he was already putting it away when I got to him πŸ˜›

Screenshot-108

Cinder: BOO you alien freak of nature!!

Bart: Where did she even come from?

What is with everyone changing in the middle of my pictures?


Well there you go. Another chapter finished. Yay for insanity!

Chapter 3.4 – Baby Overload

Chapter 3.04.jpg

Ok, this chapter went a lot more smoothly than the last couple! Let’s hope it keeps up! Also, may seem random right now, but I am really hating aliens right now. With a passion.

Screenshot-02

Cerys: Psst! Guess what?

Ciri: What?

Cerys: I caused a lot of problems when it was time for me to grow up!

Screenshot-03

Ciri: Heehee I know! You should totally do it again when you become a teen!

Cerys: Haha that would be awesome!

No it would not! No more glitches!

Screenshot-0

Anyway, last time the twins grew up, but I only had a picture for one of them. I finally got the other one so here they are! Actually I just realized I have two pictures of the same toddler. Awkward. Well this one is Yennefer. She got Cress/Debbie’s hair and Alex’s eyes.

And I found one of Priscilla although it’s not the ideal closeup. But it works.

Screenshot-32

Here she is! She got Alex’s hair and Cress/JJ’s eyes.

Screenshot-2

And Sam is the first one to realize we have a laundry room in this house!

Sam: I do love the smell of clean clothes!

How would you know? You’ve never smelled it.

Sam: But I hear it smells heavenly!

Screenshot-4

Sam: Actually I don’t quite feel like doing the laundry right now. The clothes can just wait here for a bit.

Screenshot-3

Cerys found the block table!

Screenshot-6

Ciri: It’s so nice and sunny out today! Wanna go swim in the pool?

Cerys: I have a much better idea!

Screenshot-7

Cerys: So you see, the Β outside is filled with vile, horrifying things like roaches the size of your fist and blood-sucking fiends!

Sam: Oh that’s disgusting!

Bart: This planet is terrifying!

Ciri: Yeah… This is so much better than swimming…

Screenshot-8

Alex: Someone left a pile of laundry here. That’s ok, I’ll get it cleaned up.

Screenshot-9

Alex, did you drop the pile again?

Alex: I don’t know what you’re talking about.

Screenshot-11

You look like you’re concentrating hard.

Ciri: I must get this just right.

Screenshot-12

Ciri: Voila. A delicious fudgy M&M-filled cookie!

Screenshot-13

Bart: I see human-mother has done some upgrades. I approve of this.

Screenshot-14

Bart: Sim-grandfather, your movements are distracting while I attempt to view the box.

Sam: Oh cheer up young lad! Join me!

Screenshot-15

Sam: Do I spy another set of twins?

Oh God. Please no.

Screenshot-16

Bart: And he was acting like he was performing for an audience and would not stop!

Ciri: Yeah, gramps sure does love to dance. You kinda get used to it.

Screenshot-18

Hey you’re finally cleaning up your mess! Took long enough.

Screenshot-19

Alex: The stupid dishwasher is broken!

Yeah, pretty much everything is right now. It’ll have to wait till after the toddlers are skilled.

Screenshot-20

Cress: The toddler is on the move and I can’t keep an eye on her! Oh my Plumbob don’t draw on the walls or anything!

Screenshot-21

Bart: What do I do!? I am not trained for this situation!

Cress: You’d think I’d be used to this by now!

Screenshot-22

Alex: Not in front of the kids! They’ll be scarred for life!

Screenshot-23

Cress: Take me to the hospital then!

K so funny story, somehow in the short time between when Cress and Alex left for the hospital and the time the baby is actually born, I completely forgot that Cress was in labour and that she had gone to the hospital. And I quit the game cause I didn’t feel like playing anymore that day (which I just don’t do. I would have waited till the baby was born to quit)

So then the next day I opened up my game and like two seconds later I got that “Congratulations! What would you like to name your baby?” popup and I was like “What? Since when was Cress in labour?” and I clicked to go to her and it took me to the hospital and I was like “What!? When did you go to the HOSPITAL? I’m controlling you I should know where you are!” And I was so confused cause I had no idea. But obviously I did at one point cause I have pictures of it. So yeah. I don’t know how I forgot she was having a baby like right after it began, but somehow it happened.

Screenshot-24

Cress: There. I gave you a boy. Happy now?

YES! SO HAPPY! K get ready for this. Meet Avallac’h Roche Zoltan Eskel Sanity. Yes. I used all the boy names I potentially wanted to use and slammed it all onto this one kid. I’m so proud of myself.

Arze is absent-minded and mean-spirited. He likes roots, cookies, and the colour grey.

Names used (from left to right)

Avallac’h is an elf who was watching over/guiding/protecting what have you Cirilla. I always tend to like the elves in stuff like this, just cause elves are like my favourite race, and he was no different! He was awesome from the start and even though the game kind of pushes you to think he’s up to something bad, I just had a good feeling about him anyway.

Vernon Roche (with a sh not like Roach) is a commander in the military, and I dunno I just liked him right away.

Zoltan Chivay is a dwarf friend of Geralt and has quite the personality! He is amusing and adds a lot to whatever situation he is in!

Eskel is a fellow witcher. He is the calm and collected one and my favourite of the witchers!

Screenshot-25

Alex: *Sigh* There’s another one.

Oh God. This means I have FOUR babies in the house right now.

Twin sets caused by Sam: 3.

This one is Johnny. Yes she is named after a boy, but I didn’t really have any other girl names I wanted to use. At least Johnny kinda sounds unisex-ish? She is a snob and a loner and likes classical music, goopy carbonara, and white.

4.6 Johnny

Johnny is a godling and helps us for a bit on our quests. He also likes to sing.

Screenshot-27

Ciri: Twins again!? Are you guys gonna stop pumping out kids now?

Screenshot-28

Cress: Oh man I still have so much to do with these ones before their birthday!

Ciri: Well then why’d you have another two so soon after these ones were born?

Hey, I needed a boy and your mom is getting really close to becoming an adult.

Screenshot-30

You know, you’ll be raking a looong time if you want to get all those leaves.

Ciri: Nonsense, I just need enough for a big pile!

Screenshot-31

Cress: What have I done to myself? This is crazy! Four babies is too many!

Screenshot-33

Oh my God seriously!? She was just heading to take care of the infants, whose social bars are dropping pretty low, when the STUPID ALIENS CAME FOR CRESS! I hate how you can’t cancel out that interaction! Both the other adults are asleep and the babies need social interaction!!!!!

Screenshot-34

I’m sorry Arze, as soon as your mom comes back she’ll take care of you guys.

Screenshot-35

SERIOUSLY!?!?!? This is a completely different spaceship – note the moodlet she already has of being abducted. I HAVE BABIES TO CARE FOR!

I seriously doubt the abduction rate is only 1 or 2%. Apparently it’s higher if you have space rocks in your inventory, but everyone has ZERO space rocks. and no telescopes have been used or anything! I’m gonna have to download a no abduction mod or something. Or at least see if there’s one that lets you cancel the interaction. This is ridiculous!

Screenshot-36

And Ciri’s still out making her leaf pile. You should maybe go to bed. It’s like 3 am.

Ciri: Nah this is more important than sleep.

Screenshot-37

Ituxi Uzopoc: I had to check up on the substitute mother for my son. It is not my fault another alien got her as well.

Screenshot-38

Yup. Meet Bart’s mom.

Screenshot-39

Cress: Please, no more! A sim can only handle so much probing!

Screenshot-40

Great. She was gone so long Priscilla woke up and is hungry on top of the babies still needing their social needs met.

Screenshot-41

Cress: Oh baby, you don’t know what I went through to get here to take care of you. It was horrible! Never be abducted!

Screenshot-42

Alex: The baby is crying.

Yes, so pick it up and do something with it!

Screenshot-43

Alex: I’m not sure I know what to do with it.

Well, at least the other adults are up and can sort of help out! I kid I kid they’re actually pretty good with taking care of the kids when Cress is busy.

Screenshot-44

Cerys: And it suddenly got all foggy but mom could see these lights through the fog and then POOF she was gone! And when she came back she said she’d seen your mother.

Bart: Cool. It’s nice to know mother is keeping an eye on me. Maybe one day she will come take me to our planet.

Screenshot-45

Cress: Just learn to talk already! It’s your birthday soon and you need to get this down pat before then!

Cress may be a little stressed at the moment.

Screenshot-46

Hey Thorne is the first to have a baby in this new world!

Screenshot-47

Bart: Look at the colour of these leaves! I feel like I am in a whole other world right now!

Screenshot-48

Sam: Am I doing this right?

Cerys: Hell yeah! You just scored me another 100 points! Go Grandpa!

Screenshot-49

Bart found the chess table!

Bart: The best way to increase my logic and brain capacity is to play against myself. Playing against a human would have the opposite effect.

Cress: YES! Duster! Duster! That’s it! You said it! Oh Plumbob we’re finally getting somewhere!

Screenshot-52

Alex: Kid, all you gotta do is hit the stick on the keys and they make noise. It’s really quite simple.

Screenshot-51

Yen: Hit stick?

Screenshot-54

Yen: It did make noise! πŸ˜€

Screenshot-55

And suddenly Alex is outside the house growing older. He was just inside playing with Yen…

Screenshot-59

Oh God he looks creepy.

Screenshot-57

It’s also the youngest twins’ birthday! Johnny went first, even though Arze was born first, because he was busy getting his needs met.

She got the blue hair and eyes and LOOK!

Screenshot-56

SHE GOT THE EARS!

Screenshot-60

Arze also got the blue hair, but got Alex’s eyes, and he ALSO got the ears!! One of these guys just might end up being heir.

Screenshot-58

Bart: You know Cerys, you are a pretty cool sister, for a human.

Cerys: Aw thanks buddy!

The siblings this gen are so nice to each other!

Screenshot-61

Cress: Ok, one more skill for you. Come on Yen make your momma proud.

Yeah, she hasn’t been doing much else besides toddler skilling lately. The kids are on a pretty nice rotation, and when one/two are sleeping, the others are awake to be skilled. Cress, meanwhile, has been using a lot of the moodlet manager.

Screenshot-63

Ciri: Bart was right! It really does feel like I’m in a whole ‘nother world!

Screenshot-64

You know, I believe Priscilla is the first to have maxed any of the toddler skills.

Screenshot-65

Ciri: Oh my Plumbob!

What?

Screenshot-66

Cerys: RAWR!

Ciri: Even from way back there she’s frightening!

Screenshot-67

Cress: I tried to get here in time.

ALEX! I know it was you! Just cause you have a carpool to catch doesn’t mean you can just leave food cooking unattended!

Screenshot-68

Cress: It’s all good. I’ll get this put out in no time.

Screenshot-69

It was the tiniest fire, but it was still enough to get Sam and Bart, on their way to their carpool/bus to stop and freak out, and then stay home for the day.

Bart: How can I go to school when I just witnessed a fire in my own kitchen?

Sam: Yeah plus the dishwasher is still broken. Someone needs to get that fixed.

What and that’ll be you?

Screenshot-70Screenshot-71

I feel like Ciri and Cerys may have teamed up and stolen a gun to wave around and force a police officer into the cell. Sounds about right with this family.

Screenshot-72

Cerys: So I know it doesn’t sound like it would work, but vegetarian lobster thermidor is like the best thing ever!

Bart: It is fascinating how one can make meat and seafood vegetarian-friendly.

Screenshot-73

Bart: My favourite dish, however, is already vegetarian. A simple salad will suffice for me.

Screenshot-74

Cerys: RAWR

Aw man I got a plumbob in the mirror. I try to avoid stuff like that.

Screenshot-75

Ciri: GAH! Why do you only ever scare me!? You’re nice enough to Bart!

Screenshot-77

Bart: I have been promoted to King of the Aliens. All will bow before me.

Screenshot-79

Cress: Oh sweet Plumbob finally! And with a day to spare!

It helps that she doesn’t have a job. I doubt I would be able to pull this off if she did have one.

Screenshot-80

Since the older twins are skilled, and the younger ones are asleep and therefore cannot be skilled at the moment, Cress uses this time to repair some of the damaged appliances.

Screenshot-81

Cress: Now will everyone stop complaining about the broken dishwasher?

Screenshot-82

Bart: I am becoming older!

Oh sorry Bart, I didn’t even throw a party!

Screenshot-83

I see you’re embracing your alieness.

Bart: I feel most comfortable in my native alien attire.

Screenshot-84

Bart didn’t do all that great in school, and had easily impressed locked in.

Screenshot-85

And the first thing he does is help feed the now-awake and hungry toddlers! I ❀ you Bart!

Screenshot-86

Also Ciri got on the honor roll but I forgot to take a screenshot of the notification. This works just as well though! +5

Screenshot-87

Cool I didn’t know aliens had this need instead of energy. I noticed when Bart was just not going to sleep after he grew up so went to check cause he should have been tired, and saw this instead!

Screenshot-88

Cress: Oh not again!

Are you freaking kidding me?

Screenshot-89

Uzopoc: Just checking up on my favourite grandson!

Yeah he’s an Uzopoc, so I figured he must be related somehow.

Screenshot-91

Ugh it’s nice of you to help out, Bart, but she is NOT tired!

Screenshot-92

Ciri: I can fly!

Screenshot-93

Ciri: This thing is awesome! Why haven’t I used it before!?

Beats me. No one had used it until now.

Screenshot-94

No one had used this either!

Screenshot-96

Ituxi Uzopoc: I have arrived for the birthday celebrations. This is the attire preferred by human sims, is it not?

Bart: This is embarassing.

Haha since Cress had been abducted by her, they were acquaintances and I thought I’d see if she showed up if she were invited.

Screenshot-97

Ituxi Uzopoc: It is like being teleported to another world!

What is with everyone and the leaf pile?

Screenshot-98

Iko: I bring hamburgers!

Kai: Hi sis! What up?

Iko: You literally just saw me back at the house.

Screenshot-99

Alex: It feels like just yesterday that I was helping Yen learn how to use the xylophone. And now she’s growing up! Why does it go so fast!?

Sam: Well while you’re having your moment, there is a tree calling my name. Must go.

Screenshot-100

Ituxi Uzopoc: This is how you “rock the bass” yes? I am “getting the party started?”

Screenshot-101

Birthday time!

Screenshot-102

First up is Priscilla, who is now a couch potato.

Yen, where are you? It’s your turn now!

Screenshot-103

Yen: Something went terribly wrong.

Screenshot-104

Luckily, we were able to rescue her and get her to her cake!

Screenshot-105

She is now a heavy sleeper!

Screenshot-106

And finally, it is Ciri’s turn!

Screenshot-108

Sam: HAHAHA she’s totally gonna pass out!

Don’t do it Ciri! Just a little longer and you can go to bed!

Screenshot-110

Sam: EW someone peed their pants! Wasn’t me though! Definitely wasn’t me!

Ugh Sam thanks a lot. -5

Screenshot-111

Iko: Aw my little niece is all grown up.

And she’s a pretty little thing!

Screenshot-112

Ciri: Like what else is new?

No really though she is quite gorgeous.

Screenshot-113

She is now a virtuoso!


And that is where I leave it! This chapter is long enough already!

Chapter 3.4 – Baby Overload

Chapter 3.3 – A Brand New Family

Chapter 3.03.jpg

So! Last we left off, this family went all corrupt on me and I couldn’t save them. So I cheated to get them back. I had all but the kids saved, so I just pulled up Cress and Alex and used play with genetics to get Ciri and Cerys back. They may look a bit different, but whatever. Then I added Sam, Debbie, Fae, and JJ to the family as well, as young adults.

I just realized I should have taken pictures and such so this isn’t one block of text. Oh well. Too late now.

Anyway, then I moved them into a random house and used master controller to get the proper relationships between everyone sorted out and to get Fae, JJ and Sam’s LTWs completed, and to up the painting skills for everyone who had them, then had everyone paint portraits of everyone who had one. Then I force aged Fae, JJ, Sam, and Debbie to elder and killed off Fae, JJ and Debbie. I then waited till around midnight and instant babied Alex with whatever alien was present in order to replace Bart, and aged him up to child. And I pollinated Cress so she was pregnant again. I also put everyone back to the general age they were at before this happened so they weren’t all back at the beginning of their life bars.

THEN I moved in Cinder, Iko, Kai, and Thorne into a house together and realized I could not edit their relationship to Cress, which will be mentioned at the appropriate time in the chapter. I did not, however, move in Charlie, Wolf, Jody, Dean (was he still alive? I can’t remember) or Cas. It was too much work, so I just left it at the siblings.

Screenshot

Cress: Where are we?

Bart: Is there a TV here?

Oh yeah. And I moved them into a different house. I didn’t have the one I built saved and I didn’t feel like re-building it, so I downloaded a nice house and moved them into it. I did replace that car though. They don’t have the police car anymore (although I could buy debug that but don’t feel like it. No one’s a police officer anyway)

Screenshot-2

Got a quick crypt set up in the basement. Unfortunately when I killed off the dead people, they didn’t give me their nice urns. Just the generic grey boxes. Maybe something about the cheated LTW didn’t register to give them nice ones? So I used buy debug to give Fae and JJ their gold urns, and Debbie her grey-but-nicer-than-a-box urn.

Screenshot-3

I then just stuck their real urns in the corner so they can still come out to haunt!

The bad news is, we lost Thomas. I went on sims wiki to see if he was an original character of Appaloosa Plains so I could just open a new town and save him, but he was not listed unfortunately 😦

RIP Thomas. You were a random elder that died on our lot, but you grew on me. I’ll miss having you around.

Screenshot-4

Now let’s see what everyone does first in their new house. Alex has gone straight for the darts. Have you ever played darts in your life?

Alex: I have no idea. I feel like a newborn sim in a grown man’s body. I must try everything!

Screenshot-5

Looks like Bart found the treehouse!

Bart: Everything feels strange. I seek answers. I must initiate contact with my alien brethren and to do that I must reach great heights. Is this tree close enough to the house to reach the roof?

K don’t go breaking anything!

Screenshot-6

Ciri went for the computer, and discovered something seemingly quite shocking.

Ciri: An ad popped up and it’s not child friendly! Oh my plumbob what even is that!?

I think she may be scarred for life.

Screenshot-7

Sam… well… Sam still likes to sit.

Sam: This chair feels different. Why is everything different? My tush does not appreciate these changes.

Screenshot-8

Cress, of course, went right to work toddler skilling. Being the torch holder means pretty much no free time.

Screenshot-9

So any luck making contact?

Bart: I’m still in the process of searching. This takes time.

Screenshot-10

So you gave up huh?

Bart: No way! I found them, and this is how I’ll reach them. When I propel high enough, I can leap off the swing and launch into space straight at their spaceship!

Seriously. Don’t break anything.

Screenshot-12

Somehow that is not the career I would have pictured Kai in…

Screenshot-14

Ciri: So this new house is pretty cool isn’t it?

Screenshot-15

Bart: No way. The old one was so much better. In fact, I’m trying to reach my alien family and maybe I can live with them instead of staying in this dumb place.

Screenshot-16

Oh look someone found the pool!

Alex: This is great! Finally I have someplace to get away from everyone! It gets crazy with so many kids in the house!

You have two children and a toddler.

Alex: And a pregnant wife and a father-in-law who’s slowly losing his mind.

Screenshot-17

No! Nuh uh! No way Jose! That is being DELETED!

Screenshot-19

Ciri: Hey that looks like fun!

Alex: Aw man this was my private spot.

Screenshot-22

Ciri: Not anymore it isn’t! This is Ciri’s spot now!

Screenshot-23

Bart: So is this how humans enjoy themselves? Is this what they call “the fun“?

Screenshot-25

Bart: No wait! This must be it! I find myself enjoying this more than the sitting!

Screenshot-26

Ciri: Ow I don’t know if I like this pool that much!

Screenshot-27

So the kids went on a field trip…

Bart: I was doing an experiment. I was observing how the humans react when another being wields what is considered a “dangerous object.”

Screenshot-28

They all wanted to go to the festival, so I figured “eh, why not?” See Sam running way ahead?

Screenshot-29

He found the hot dog eating contest.

Screenshot-30

Sam: I’m so gonna win this thing!

Screenshot-31

Sam: This is the best day ever! πŸ˜€

Screenshot-32

Sam: *Chokes* I regret everything.

Screenshot-33

Sam: This is painful!

Spoiler alert: he lost. He came in fourth.

Screenshot-34

You already had a snow cone.

Cress: But that was blue raspberry. My baby wants cherry. I have to satisfy my baby’s wishes too! And if that means two snow cones, I will have two snow cones.

Screenshot-35

Wow. You guys sure seem to be enjoying the festival.

Screenshot-36

Cress: My baby is happy. So I am happy.

Screenshot-37

Alex: Hey this is kinda fun! We should maybe get one to go along with the pool!

Screenshot-38

Alex: I take that back! Not fun! Not fun!

Screenshot-39

You sure look like you’re having fun.

Ciri: My snow cone is rainbow. So I can taste the rainbow. I’m overjoyed.

This kid has like zero expression.

Screenshot-40

Hey! You’re dancing again!

Sam: Getting outside, and participating in that hot dog eating contest (I thought I would die right there) made me realize I need to enjoy the time I have left. That means, less sitting and wallowing, and more dancing!

Cool, also when did you get your face painted?

Sam: That you would know if you had paid attention to me after the contest.

Screenshot-41

Cress: Hey dad? Would it be possible for you to dance somewhere else?

Sam: I’m afraid that is not something that can be done, dear.

Screenshot-42

Sam: Otherwise, how would you be able to –

Screenshot-43

Sam: Watch me shake –

Screenshot-44

Sam: My bootay!

Screenshot-45

Sam: Oh yeah! The dancing king is back!

Screenshot-46

Alex: My father-in-law is crazy. He’s gotta follow Debbie soon, right? How old is he again?

Whereas Ciri is always expressionless, Alex always has the most angry look on his face.

Screenshot-48

Cress: BART! I’m trying to potty train your sister!

Bart: I must use this particular bathtub at this precise moment.

And Bart hasn’t changed. There are THREE other bathrooms in this house! PICK A DIFFERENT TUB!

Screenshot-50

I see Ciri has gotten the hang of the whole diving thing.

Alex: Look at that swan dive. So elegant! So graceful! 10/10 sweetie!

Screenshot-51

Ciri: I do not hear him. I am deaf to all. Just enjoy this moment without the annoying chatter of your family able to bother you.

Screenshot-52

Sam: Oh my Plumbob she’s in labour! What do we do!?

Screenshot-53

Sam and Bart: AAAAAAAHHHHHHHHH

Cress: What are you two on about? I’m fine. Stop screaming so I can concentrate.

Screenshot-54

Bart: Where are you going!?!? This is a crisis!!!

Sam: Gotta pee. This is taking too long.

Cress: Seriously. I’m fine. Go away.

Screenshot-55

Ciri: SHE’S HAVING A BABY! Someone help her!!!!!!

Cress: What is everyone’s problem right now? I’m just trying to enjoy a nice game of chess.

Screenshot-56

Cress: Wait I am having a baby!! HEY! Where are you going!? I’m in labour!!

Woman: It’s taking so long. Where’d Sam go? He’s a fine hunk of sim.

Screenshot-57

Iko: I thought I was here for the pool! No one said anything about a baby!

Cress: Finally! Someone’s here for the actual birth!

Screenshot-58

Iko: Ok, Cinder’s here. Passing the baton. Where’s my adorable little niece?

Cinder: You’re LEAVING ME with her!? I don’t know how to deliver a baby!!

Cress: It’s ok, I’ve done this twice already.

Screenshot-59

Cinder: TWICE!? And you’re doing it AGAIN!?

Also side note: None of them have kids anymore. I could have instant babied them, but I didn’t feel like it. Plus I just left them at the beginning of their age bars so they have time to produce kids all over again.

Screenshot-60

Kai: Cool. A baby.

Cress: It’s a girl! Just what I wanted!

Well I WANT A BOY! But yeah in this new world she wished for a girl instead of a boy. But I still want a boy so they’re having babies until I get one!

Anyway, this is Priscilla.

4.3 Priscilla

She is named after this lovely poet with a beautiful voice! Sim-Priscilla is a childish virtuoso who enjoys pop music, cookies, and the colour Irish green.

Screenshot-61

Ciri: You’re the best aunt ever! You should get a trophy for “Best Aunt of the Universe!”

Also, the reason all the family is here is cause I threw a pool party. Everyone wanted to throw one, so I figured why not? I needed them here to change the relationship to Cress anyway, because apparently the sims you’re editing need to be on the same lot as each other in order to do so.

Screenshot-63

What’s this? Another baby? And another GIRL!? Blame Sam for this set of twins.

Twin sets caused by Sam’s dancing: 2.

This one is Yennefer.

4.4 Yennefer

Named after Geralt (main character of the Witcher)’s love interest. Yen is an absent-minded loner who likes hip hop, veggie burgers, and aqua.

Screenshot-73

Cress: So… hehehe… Baby?

Screenshot-74

Alex: Another one? Don’t you think we have enough?

We don’t have another BOY though! I have NAMES I need to USE! If you give me just one boy I can give him middle names or something I just need ONE BOY!!

Screenshot-65

Thorne: Hey guys! I’m here for the party! What’d I miss?

Oh not much. Just the birth of twins. Why are you so late?

Screenshot-66

Thorne: The party don’t start till I get here! *Whips out bass* Let’s do this!

Ok to be honest he didn’t just whip out the bass. He went to our new fangled music room and took that one. I just thought it sounded more awesome the other way.

Screenshot-67

Everyone: Woo birthday!

Who’s birthday is it though?

Screenshot-68

Cerys: Really gotta pee. I’ll be right back.

Screenshot-70

Oh dear. That one was my bad. I didn’t wanna put her to bed cause she was gonna be growing up right away and then she could just find one… didn’t work out like that. -5

Screenshot-71

Ciri: This time of night is so relaxing. No more family. No more screaming. Ah. Nice.

She loves that pool.

Screenshot-75

What? Suddenly it’s day and the family is back? Yeah. I had to restart that whole day.

And apparently Bart can walk on water.

Bart: My communications last night seem to have resulted in some extra abilities.

Yeah, he was stuck. He couldn’t step over the edge of the pool to get out. I had to reset him.

Screenshot-76

You’re still a toddler?

Cerys: I’m never growing up!

Screenshot-77

Sam: You know, kid, your mom had twins because of me. That’s kind of my thing. I cause twins. Your aunts Charlie and Jody were also the result of me interfering.

Ciri: Woah that’s so cool grandpa! How do you do it?

Sam: Well –

Don’t give her any ideas!

Screenshot-78

Oh hey Fae! First ghost out at the new house! How’s it feel?

Fae: I’m still dead, so. Not so different.

Screenshot-79

Alex: Aw I wanted to hold her.

There’s a second baby right beside her.

Alex: But I wanted that one!

Screenshot-80

Hey you’re growing up finally!

When I looked it up, apparently something about CC was probably causing it. She wouldn’t load up CAS though to remove it, so I just deleted whatever she had been using from the game. Then I forced her to age up (that hadn’t been working earlier – she would just sit there and then cancel out the aging)

Screenshot-81

Oh God what is wrong with you?

Cerys: What is this not how people wear their hair?

Screenshot-82

That’s better. You’re so adorable!

Screenshot-84

Cerys: Aw really? That’s so sweet of you to say!

Screenshot-85

Cerys: But now I’m bored. What is there to do around here?

Swim in the pool?

Cerys: Something more of the indoor variety.

She got hates the outdoors. WELL. Originally she rolled unicorn. But I figured – that doesn’t make much sense, so I rolled again. (I have a mod that unlocks traits for toddlers/children but it also unlocks hidden traits so stuff like that happens sometimes. I couldn’t find anything else that unlocks for toddlers/children though so I deal with it)

Screenshot-86

Cerys: Mommy – I want more kids! This house should be filled to the roof with them! Daddy – Are you kidding me? More kids?

Screenshot-88

Cerys: Daddy – NO MORE KIDS! Die woman die!

Screenshot-89

Cerys: Mommy – But think of how happy they all make us! Don’t you want more happiness? Daddy – Hmm well alright then.

Screenshot-87

Cerys: Daddy – Psych! NO MORE KIDS I SAY!

I think Cerys is trying to let her mom know something.

Screenshot-93

Ciri: I am an astronaut!

Screenshot-94

Ciri: TO THE MOON!

Screenshot-96

Ciri: I weigh nothing here! This is so surreal!

Screenshot-97

Shouldn’t you be in school?

Ciri: Exploration does not wait for one to be done school! Exploration waits for no one!

Screenshot-98

Cerys: I have brown eyes now.

Yeah my game crashed and I had to start again from when she grew up. I also realized she grew up with blue eyes last time even though she had brown as a toddler. This time she grew up with brown eyes, but they’re still the wrong brown. I changed them in CAS when I realized.

Screenshot-99

Cerys: I’m sick of this! When will this cycle of not growing up and growing up end!? I just want to live!

Screenshot-100

Cerys: Everything disgusts me.

My God look at that face.

Screenshot-101

There I changed your eyes back to normal. Better?

Cerys: Oh yes it certainly is. Because the colour of my eyes makes me see the world so differently.

Are you sassing me?

Screenshot-102

This time Ciri actually went to school.

Screenshot-103

And Cerys just played video games instead of going on that rant at the dollhouse.


And that’s pretty much all the pics I have! I do have for the twins growing up but only one of them… so I’ll need to actually take a picture of the other one. And I might as well wait and write them both out at the same time!

So yeah! Hopefully I’m done with all the glitches and crashes and corruptions!
