The Ultimate Sim Season 3 Chapter 4 (Twinbrook)
A/N: This will probably be my last full chapter. I plan to do a separate post to explain why. I have been recording videos and taking some screenshots still, most likely it’ll be more like a scrapbook than a play-by-play attempt. I don’t expect anyone to watch the videos since they’ll likely be really long but I’ve been enjoying it so far.
Darrin went out to do something and took the daycare van. Looks like we need to get him a car. It was actually a shock to me when I realized they couldn’t afford the one I planned to buy him!
Anaia was inventing.
Which also brings up her handiness skill. It’s just so weird to me that she’s getting promoted while at home doing something completely unrelated to her job!
I have absolutely no idea how Opal got singed. Whether it was Darrin’s magic tricks backfiring or maybe she was playing with magic… no clue.
Level 5 already?!?
She’s only invented one thing! Right after I took a pic of this she made the dog toy.
Which she gave to Darrin. So freaking cute.
She doesn’t seem very pleased with the lack of progress either!
Give it time, you’ll get better, Darrin. It’s funny, as soon as I took the screenshot of her not learning any inventions she started learning one after another!
I thought Moonshine was sleeping in the dog bed but instead he was guarding it. Doing that not only raises their aggression but also is a red flag for drawing burglars.
Why does it always seem to rain on festival days?
Taking another break, are we?
So, apparently Darrin’s new car is only a two-seater. If someone else rides with him their head pokes out of the rear window!
Year 1 fall pic.
Such an easy way to get everyone’s hunger up… and free pie no matter who wins!
I discovered that this lot has a major flaw. No bathrooms! And festival lots are so weird I’m afraid to add anything. Luckily, Anaia can help with that.
The name that was recommended was so funny I couldn’t resist!
Deshawn looks very confused. Although, I’m pretty sure that’s his usual state after Anaia scrambled his brain in uni.
Back to the festival, this creeper was getting a little too close while they were kissing.
A little privacy in a hay bale? I forgot they could woohoo in those!
The nice thing about this festival lot is the addition of items from other packs.
Opal wanted to trick or treat. I tried to get her to wear a costume but she didn’t change clothes.
Apple bobbing. I feel like half of this chapter is festival pics!
Even though she technically had the day off, Anaia went in for a few hours to maintain the fire engine.
And that got her to level 7 in the career… in the first season in Twinbrook since I changed it to fall when she moved there!
I have no idea why the dogs looked like they were glowing. It looks like I photoshopped them on a picture!
It’s neat that Bonehilda trains them but I have to keep a constant eye on them because she will keep it up even when their needs are critical.
Back to trying to find items she can do a unique upgrade on. She was able to make the fortune cookie thingy have only good fortunes. Which would be nice I suppose if anyone used it.
Which gave her yet another promotion!
Darrin is very sweet. As soon as he wakes up in the morning he seeks her out.
Have a good day at school, Opal. I have a love/hate relationship with that teleporter.
The fire engine needs constant maintenance. The alarm isn’t nearly as bad.
Darrin performed for tips outside so I could keep an eye on both of them at once.
And yet another promotion.
And another small fire.
Opal was singed again on her way home from school. I have no idea how this kept happening.
After Anaia was finished with work, they went dancing at the Red Rendevous.
And had a little fun in the basement.
Then, they went to eat at the diner and hung out on the swings together until they got cold.
There’s a gravestone there!
Is it mean that I found this hilarious?
Anaia upgraded this thing so that it supposedly has perfect teleportation. I don’t believe it since I found Opal far from the school after using it later.
Since it was raining, I had to find Darrin a place inside to perform for tips.
Where’s your outfit?
A gas line broke at the military base.
Well, that’s it. She just started her 2nd season of the first year and has topped the firefighter career.
Hmm… while we’re here.
I am the fire chief after-all.
Now THAT was fun. It did result in extreme lag when trying to use the inventing benches. It pauses what feels like forever each time I click on one.
It got me this and that’s all that matters!
Darrin actually drew a crowd and made tips for the first time!
Since one of the girls decided to take Darrin’s car to work, we gave each of them their very own sloppy jalopy so they’ll hopefully leave ours alone.
Our very own alarm to keep maintained. Yay. <—That’s sarcasm. It sucks.
Aphpo aged to toddler.
Moonshine howled with the radio.
Darrin was fatigued from performing for so long.
While there, he steamed some vegetables. Weirdest thing ever!
I love the elevator woohoo. I can’t really capture it in a screenshot.
First time taking her personal firetruck. What is that on the ground?
She looks so bad-ass! And, I guess that’s where we’ll end. I have been taking some screenshots but not nearly as many as before so I’ll either have very short updates or large gaps between longer updates.
Anaia decided she wanted to master the athletic skill after becoming the fire chief.
Which I found very confusing.
I am very proud that my dogs have both not only lost the piggy trait but gained the neat trait!
Unlike Riverview, where I added several occults, I added two vampires, one witch, one werewolf, and two fairies. It kinda slipped my mind or I’d have done it sooner.
Remember the raccoon that the firetruck drove by? Next time I started the game I saw zzz’s in the front yard and found him out there sleeping in the snow!
Her face! I really have no words!
