TS4→ Drifter Reboot 004.8: Summer Fun

House 004 chapter 8

The Beginning of Summer

I had all of these screenshots just collecting dust in a folder so I thought I’d publish them. Most are of a summer party. Enjoy.

I kept trying and trying to get a good pic of all of the little ones…

[smartslider3 slider=”7″]

Mom firing up the barbecue trying to lure the adults outside.

Maybe I should have locked the door?

Meanwhile, the kids had some slip’n’slide fun. They invited some of the other kids Joule met while at the park.

Yikes. Someone’s not happy that the other kid looks just like him. I don’t blame him. It was annoying.

Phoenix was also invited.

I pulled some sofas from other parts of the house.

And bought a picnic table.

I think the only category we haven’t covered are slip’n’slide pics…

[smartslider3 slider=”9″]

I realized near the end of the party that Ion’s son Burin wasn’t there! Seems there were more sims invited than my “in-zone” settings oopsie.

Didn’t you wonder where your son was this whole time?

Tired of the slide, the kids started to make their way inside. Cousin Pastel on the left is on my bad side. I saw her several times being mean to the pets!

Most of the others piled into Tachisme’s room.

And were soon joined by even more.

Don’t step on a wee one!

Oh, never mind. He was just out there trying to convince his wife to get funky while they had guests all over the place. That’s my cue to end this party I think.

And almost immediately Joule was abducted. Have fun.

Returned home she began transforming things like the glasses guests left lying around and the litter box. I mean really… would you clean it if you had the option to transform it into something potentially useful?

Good job Oberon!

It’s okay Oberon.

He must have been assured because he then claimed his spot in Tachisme’s room.

Hey Atom!

Why are you tense and they aren’t? You started and put out the fire!

Arriving to work she’s told to drink… something?

Busy busy. Such a hard worker.

Okay, maybe not? Poor lady gets followed into the bathroom!

Good job!

Joule: Yep, that’s my daughter.

Level 10 baby!

I decided in celebration to set up this room that, until now, I’d just been storing stuff she’d transformed in.

Just sort of a weird science collection room. I’d hoped to do more with it but nothing fits on shelves.

One last goal left in this house challenge… move in an alien. Phoenix met and liked Oberon.

And moved in. She felt more comfortable now and wore some “earth clothes.”

Joule’s back to transforming. That chair gave me an idea.

Originally, her room was pretty generic.

Then I remembered she’s childish and added a few extras in.

Again? Have fun I guess.

I know someone’s having fun at least.

I suppose queuing up drinking a moodlet solver while she’s transforming things isn’t a good idea?

Now that has to be the weirdest thing yet!

Awe how nice of her! Fitting in with the family already.

Back to work. Upgrading the simray.

It was supposed to change his appearance but he looks the same. I don’t think she’s making any friends this day.

I suppose she doesn’t need to worry since most of them look to have been decapitated by machinery when they passed out.

I didn’t know this was a possible outcome with that serum! Would come in handy if you had a… handy sim. Haha. Well, that’s it peeps. All that’s left to do is wait for Tachisme to age up to young adult and choose which cousin will live with her in house 005. I had been thinking of maybe taking them on vacation or something since Joule has worked non-stop.

Chapter 004.9 coming soon-ish

TS4→ Drifter Reboot 004.7: Advantageous Match?

House 004 Chapter 7

The rest of spring

A/N:  I thought the title was suiting in addition to being funny since in this chapter we’re not only looking for an alien roommate but also trying to choose which cousin will move in with Tachisme in house 005 and lastly Joule meets a bunch of future potential suitors for her.

I had her polish all of the geodes in her inventory and she completed the collection!

I’m really looking forward to when she tops her career and can spend some quality time with the family.  It’s like she gets home and helps Tachisme with her homework and there’s barely time for anything else.

I thought she was in bed!  She must have napped.  She draws constantly which is cute seeing-as-how that’s going to be her career.

It’s so beautiful.

*sigh* That’s the last of them.  Poor Darrin gets a call almost every day still.

You have no idea how stressful this whole alien thing has been.  It’s my own fault of course.  I had some newer CC that I apparently hadn’t flagged no aliens and they were all wearing it.  And then I had a freaking berry skin in that I swear I never remember getting and they all had that too.  I either humanized or deleted the ones using it all.  So you can imagine my relief at seeing a “normal” alien.

Run and meet her!  Not so great traits.

He was childish which I really wanted but his other traits were awful.

That makes 3 collections!  I’m going to have to send Jacob from my Robinson’s save here so they can finally complete that collection!

Back to work.  I took a bunch of screenshots this day but decided to save all but this one of her freezing Ion for the bloopers chapter.

He seemed okay later.  LOL!


A little encouraging can’t hurt eh?

Then homework time again.

And she was right back to drawing!

So sweet!

Back to Sixam after Tachisme went to bed.  She really doesn’t need more collectibles but she has this horrible habit of wanting to “remove wild plants” any time I’m not making her do something!

Met another alien with rotten traits.  I’m just deleting the households at this point.

My first thought was isn’t she cute I hope she has good traits…

Ohmygosh!  Ever since she met that childish male alien I was hoping for one with that trait!

Her name is Phoenix Croft.  Unfortunately, Joule needed to leave to head to work.

Now she’s getting sent home every time it pops up to ask if I want to follow Darrin to work before Joule.

She keeps getting tasks to make things she’s already made before but I usually end up doing it because every other task is to torture coworkers.

She had her own portal in her inventory but I wanted to go into this cool room to calibrate one. This is the first time talking to it has resulted in the appearance of an alien.

Why do they all have such terrible traits?!

I had the game paused while finding the bathroom for Joule when I saw this.  It looks like she’s blaming someone else for making it blow up.

She looks like she’s adding something nefarious into the salad.  I really miss having the old setup there for meals even if she didn’t eat very often.

Maybe she added the bad ingredient for him to eat?  LOL!

This is really a good career for uncontrolled spouses.  He’s up to level 4 now!

Time to age up Burin.  He’s the one who toddled to the edge of the map at the toddler party.

I wish I could have frozen that photo frame with the house 002 family in it.

They seem to get along well.

Oh hello Morris!

Back home Joule invited Phoenix to meet the family.

Really though?

Tachisme asked questions about her planet.

Joule was just about to have Phoenix meet Oberon when she got abducted.  Ether just stood there.

Haha I love childish sims.

Tachisme kept her occupied while Darrin kept Oberon happy.

Joule got back and talked for a few minutes then Phoenix said she had to go.

Another night spent transforming.  I love dust sprites!

All of Tachisme’s artwork makes a nice backdrop for Love Day.

So cute!  I really wish there were more things like this in the game.

Darrin looks like he agrees with me that a noisemaker is ridiculous for celebrating this holiday.

She left for work and this popped up.  I’ve never seen it before and can’t remember getting a mod for this so I have no clue.  It’s been an issue lately that Tachisme will return home from school when her parents leave though so this was good.

Confetti at work really?  That can’t be safe.

She looks so serious.

As Joule was walking inside Tachisme appeared.

But it still showed her at school until I restarted the game.

I guess a fang flower has to go into a box.  Darn.

I wish there was a variety on the flowers given.  Although, he does look sweet giving it.

Don’t mind mom and dad.

I was trying to decide whether to send them on a date when Darrin went to bed.  Ugh whatever.

We’ll just have quality mother/daughter time.

Yep, looks about right.

Then Tachisme was off to bed herself and it was transforming time.

The hamper transformed into a washing machine!  So funny!

Awe looks like she takes after mom liking the doctor set too.  Okay, it’s Saturday, let’s do something fun for once!

To the park! Pastel says hello to Oberon.


It looks like they’re having some sort of weird competition.

Oh there’s Burin.  All the kids always seek out Oberon.


I totally thought that was Burin playing with Casein and Tachisme.

Better grill something up in case the kiddos get hungry.

She played for like two seconds and it make her focused so she stopped to do extra credit work.  I’m not complaining.

They were on other sides of the building but still it matches up with their earlier treadmill match.

Close-up of the adorableness of Casein.

Gasp!  He’s beautiful!

Oh look there Opie the dog is again begging with Oberon.  See?  The burgers were a good idea.

It occurred to me that it would be a good idea to meet some more boys Tachisme’s age.

Geeze I didn’t mean swim with him.  This is Layton and his trait is goofball.


It’s the boy that I mistook for Casein.  He’s actually Mathew and he’s self-assured.

Oh maybe he’s a good match for Pastel instead?

The slide is like the most hilarious item in the game.

Oberon making friends.  That dog is a beautiful specimen as well.  I especially like the oddly shaped head.  Reminds me of the dog Febe had in house 001.

Have I mentioned that there are a lot of children in the save?  I didn’t even up the MCCC settings.

In the pool again?  This is Anthony and he’s an art lover which is very promising.

They were just about to leave when I noticed a couple more.  Bennett here is a Glutton.  That’s also Burin’s last name.  It would be cruel to marry them just so his name would be Bennett Bennett I suppose.

And last we have Maddox the vegetarian.

Back home they both decided to cook at the same time.  Darrin broke the stove and when Joule stopped to fix it he went to bed.  Ugh.

Joule finished his eggs and ate them.  Isomer stopped by.  Annoyingly, it’s not family that visits lately it’s her coworkers.  Which makes no sense considering the fact she tortures them half the time.

Another long night of transforming.  I grabbed more stuff out of the room I’ve been throwing it all into and put it around the house.  Sooner or later I’m going to have to put a table in here.

A little while later I noticed Tachisme watching TV.  She was still in her swimsuit from the park so she must have only napped.  It’d be nice if Darrin napped once in a while.  Off to bed for proper sleep girlie!

Such a good boy.  And this, my friends, is the end of spring.


When they got home from the park this popped up.  Thankfully, I’d saved right before they left.

And was able to go back to right before she died and give her a kitten Gidget.

I’d noticed that Morris was about to age to elder when they were at the park so I went ahead and gave him a puppy Delores.

I also saw that Pudley was an elder now so I merged in Opie with them.

And now he has a puppy Dudley!  Opie went back to his family of course.

Chapter 004.8 coming soon!

TS4→ Drifter Reboot 004.6: They’re All Mad

House 004 Chapter 6

The first half of spring

Ah, Drifter Day.  The day that, at first, was nothing more than chatting with former Drifter family members on the sidewalk but has now turned into me spending like an hour getting graves for all the sims that died since the last one and sorting them all out.  Goby and Erich have sort of an odd sense of humor taking a selfie there like “this is where we’ll be soon!”

Febe was angry again.  I swear she was a really nice sim back in the day at least from what I remember of her.  Joule calmed her down.

The gates are locked for club members only and Tachisme went out to say hello to people wanting inside under the watch of her many greats grandpa Neo.

Even happy Febe’s scaring people.

Neo’s part of the graveyard has so many more tombstones!

Goby and Erich are weird.  Time to go.

At the night on the town meal everyone sat so nicely I had high hopes.  They dashed them pretty quickly.

Chatting with cuteness.

She kept wanting to sit there.  I checked this boy’s age and he’s 2 days older which in townie ages means he’ll be a little younger than her when she ages to YA.  Can’t hurt to check out future possibilities eh?  That part is always so stressful.

Seriously the standing during meals is really annoying me.  Look how nicely Darrin’s table is sitting.


It took forever for it to let me buy a cake.  I cleared both tables and finally it let me on the other table and I moved it.

Dad walked over and walked away.  

Awe what a cutie!

A little late on the uptake there Alexander.  I gave her the dog lover trait.

Joule went over and introduced herself to Lucas (not sure if that’s spelled right) and his twin sister who I forget the name of.  I actually remember naming them.  We don’t get many twins and I always scramble to think of a similar name for the second surprise one.

Oh sure now all of you sit!  I was ready to murder them all.

Back home, mom transformed all of Tachisme’s toddler stuff.

Wow that’s perfect!

And a dragon dragonfly!

I love it when they play in the closets.

Already using her new drawing table under the supervision of Oberon.

Sorry guys.  I now realize ramen wasn’t the brightest meal idea.

Oberon wanted a walk.  They haven’t done this in like a week.

Finally she made this thing.

How were they half as much as last week’s when she has more property value not to mention the million things in her inventory?  Plus, they ran the heat practically non-stop all winter!

Tachisme went with Joule when I aged up Pastel.  I think she got the erratic trait.

I didn’t mean do your homework on the street.  Whatever.

Might as well contact aliens.

Quark visited.

He looked so cute!

Once Tachisme was off to bed, Joule went back to Sixam.  Her walk is my mood about the whole thing at this point.

I’d taken Coolspear’s mod out that changes the workers and stuff and this one was the first thing.  

Met these two and of course they both had horrible traits.

That’s an odd task.

I forgot he’s freaking unflirty!

Now she’s sad.  There have been so many deaths I’m kinda detached from it by now.

She was repairing this for hours until I finally gave up.

The third disguised alien was over here repairing the radio for hours too.  I put Coolspear’s other cowplant mod back in temporarily that keeps them from killing sims and gives more time between feedings to keep this one alive.

No offence dude it’s a work task.  All three had bad traits.  Plus, I really wanted to meet someone on Sixam.

She got promoted and I was so impressed with her new outfit I forgot to screencap the notification.

Awe, Tachisme ran out to give her a hug!

Time to age up Casein.  I think he got the cheerful trait.  What are they doing?


I think he’s my favorite so far.

Saying hello to elder Magoo.

And meeting his pup Sherlock.

Contacting aliens again.  I know sometimes a bunch of them show up at the door.

Darrin’s sleeping as per usual.  I gave up on having her wake him up.  He always goes back to bed like an hour later.


Play time with the pup.

This wasn’t the kind of contact I had in mind.

Ion was there and Tachisme tells him that her mom is just off finding an alien to move in with them.

So cute.  I didn’t play for much longer than this and still have a few days of spring so I decided to cut it off here.

Chapter 004.7

TS4→ Drifter Reboot 004.5: Sixam… Finally

The rest of winter

Ah Winterfest… again.  I’m tiring of all the constant holidays.  I had to quit without saving when this one popped up because it was set as a day off of work.

That’s the extent of my decorating this time.  It just takes so long and it’s the same animation no matter what they’re doing. 

She gave him a space rock.

He gave her… another flower. 

Ah back to torturing Herbert eh… I mean work.  She was to spoil the latest episode of whatever TV show they watch.  I was surprised it’s a mean interaction.

This is why I wanted her to go to work!

I still haven’t put a light in there.  It’s like I have a mental block about the upstairs bathrooms.

Looks like we can stop trying to transform stuff into one!

I feel like we get these notifications constantly.  Darrin gets like one a day.

Getting that thinking skill up.

Joule was tucking her in bed and suddenly she got up and started down the stairs…

What the?  She got to the bottom and just stood there.

Another birthday I almost forgot.  Oberon ate most of that cake… with the candles on it!  It still worked.

Back to upgrading.

Last of the cousins is born.

Awe so nice.

I love transforming but the constant tasks to use the SimRay on coworkers are getting old.

Poor Herbert.


And then I remembered to switch to the aspiration when she got home.

Some attention for the hound.


Oh no he’s eating that cake!

It was just a tiny fire and mommy put it out right away you’re fine.

When it’s a blizzard dogs will go outside to pee and immediately run back inside.  I’ve started having a sim leash them and encourage them to do their business.  Although, I didn’t mean on her socks!

Both of their faces cracked me up!

Oh look it’s a room that’s mostly done.  Everything in there was transformed except for the desk and computer.

Look at her sitting all nicely in her highchair watching them play.

Awe such a sweetie.

It was one of those Omiscan masks.

Transformed it and got this.  It had a perfect color swatch to go with the vases on the landing.

Little one’s in bed time for more upgrading.

Then work.  I love this room.

Are we toasting?  Cheers!  He’s probably just relieved she’s not making him drink the serum.

Such a sweetie.  This is the only pic of her this day.  It’s so hard with the active careers.  Especially this one with them working until 7 and sometimes 9pm.
