TS4→ Multiverse 1.7: Top Notch


Stratus Burne O3/P6/R1

It is the first rotation of the Parallel Moon phase in Stratus Burne’s 3rd Orbit. Current weather forecast: unending rain.

The Flint-Hall household

The family tree is outdated and, like with Rhys, I had to make Sierra Enzo’s foster daughter to get her on the tree.

Yes, I know it’s raining. The most annoying part is that changing the setting to no thunderstorms isn’t affecting it at all so I’m constantly removing tense moodlets.

I feel like I’m starting every single chapter with “this or that pet was sick.”

Dion’s birthday was the third day so I was really looking forward to that.

Ugh. Please stay inside.

There you go, talk to the dog.

Somehow, I didn’t realize it was that random mischief day. Thankfully, cancelling it made them all stop. That air horn gets on my nerves quick. Looks like Tobias agrees.

This is around the time that I noticed this. I missed another one!

I think I was taking these pics of Dion at the time.

I decided it was probably best to get everyone’s work tasks and such done. Tricia’s in Business so she was writing reports. I was actually thrilled I finally have a sim with the right traits for that career.

Sierra’s going for Author/Journalist. I know it’s odd they’re in different spots now, I had to restart. Tobias is going to be a freelance photographer. (If the game doesn’t keep freezing up on me.) And Enzo isn’t sure what he wants to do yet so he’s doing cooking since his skill is high.

Nooo Enzo! Don’t do it! Chatterbox run!

Once all the work stuff was done they just chilled out.

And I realized that since I had to go back to an earlier save they were no longer engaged. They’d already done it once autonomously so I figured I’d just do it myself.

The first time around I’d remembered to lock the doors, the second time I didn’t.

Taking a pic of the cute doctor play and a Puddin’ butt got in the way!

Oh Dion, I hope you weren’t playing in that toilet!

Mac’n’cheese for breakfast.

Zeke off to his first day of school.

Sierra didn’t need to go to work until a few hours after the others so she started her first book. A comedy! Poor Chatterbox doesn’t know what to think about that tapping.

Tobias was supposed to be giving Dion a bath but when I looked they were playing.

And, looking at his skills, I realized that Dion was very close to maxing his thinking skill and getting Top Notch Toddler!

Fable came home from school with Zeke.

I was very excited. It’s nice having some children again. For a while there it was just toddlers, Aryana, and Madelyn.

She looks so much like Rowen here it’s scary! It’s the darned tense moodlet from the never-ending storm!

Awe! Puddin’ ran to greet Tricia at the door.

Tobias took a pic of Zeke with his new camera… and froze up my game.

Way to ruin the mood, Tricia.

The toddlers drive me crazy when it rains. They want to wander outside but then they get out there and freak because of the rain.

He asked his brother for block help.

Three helpers is a bit overboard don’t you think?

Awe so sweet. This is about the time I realized that Dion had been in his PJs most of the day since he had a short sleep after his bath.

Is it just me or do they look constipated? As with Layla and Rhys, I took a bit of liberty with Tricia and Sierra putting their relationship further than it technically was last we’d seen them.

Sierra was the only one awake when Dion got up. I wanted to test the theory that asking why is a quick way to get their thinking skill up. (Thanks Heavenly Sims)

Why does it keep raining? When is my party?

LOL! I may have overdone it.

I’ll ask my own why… why are y’all crowded in this room?

Tricia and Enzo went to get ready for work and Dion turned his questions to his dad.

Sierra was on the laptop again. Don’t fall off of the table!

Awe yea that’s the spot.

Fable arrived home from school with Zeke again.

And I managed to get a short video to show the crazy difference between their voices!

Since everyone would be home soon, Tobias baked Dion’s cake.

Puddin’ became very insistent about a walk.

I’d hoped just leashing her and walking around the house would appease her but no. So I had him ask her to do her business right outside the back door. That worked.

Tricia seems to be fitting into the family quite well. First day Puddin’ greeted her after work and the second it was Dion! Enzo doesn’t seem pleased.

Now that everyone was home it was time! Why can’t they just stand in place and cheer them on?

And there he is!

Dion and Zeke are actually biological brothers but I feel like they look very different.

A hug before bed.

Extras…

The sims were driving me crazy. Both Enzo and Tobias and sometimes even the girls kept going outside to talk to or research the plants… in the storm. This household actually took me several days to play because their autonomous actions were getting on my nerves so much.

I was looking for Chatterbox so that Tobias could lecture him for knocking over trash and couldn’t find him. That mane is like camouflage.

Why are you walking the dog all the way out here, Jozef? Maybe he’s reminding me their household is next?
