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The family tree is outdated and, like with Rhys, I had to make Sierra Enzo’s foster daughter to get her on the tree.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

TS4→ Ash Shore T3/R1: Nothing’s Changed


It is the summer rotation of the 3rd Turning in Ash Shore’s 1st Rhythm.


Flint-Hall household

Double the toddler cuteness. You’re going to laugh though. My first thought about the pets was “there are only two?”

And who can forget Enzo and Tobias.

Why are you eating out here, Dion?

Zeke ate in the kitchen while chatting with Puddin’.

You’d think that they would learn. But no. All of them slip there or the other puddle a little ways down.

Awe so sweet giving Puddin’ a brushing.

It’s funny but at the same time what the heck guys?

Finally done eating, the boys make a beeline for the gramophone.

Lucca goes over to show them some moves.

I think he got a little carried away.

You would think that after all this time I would be less gooey about these two. Nope. I fear I’m as guilty of being in love with these two as I ever was. I swear that’s a book quote. Jane Austen I believe but darned if I could find it.

It may be pouring but we do have a little overhang. There’s the desert area but it has nothing for toddlers.

So cute. Zeke’s actually going to be a child soon.

Look! It’s Smeagie!

This is not how I’d expected to see all of these sims again.

Seriously Dean, didn’t you just slip in that same puddle?

Even Khaled back there is wondering when the rain will stop.

So sweet. Looked like Tobias had more fun.

Awe Puddin’.

Vicente says a hello to Siggy.

While his sister-in-law gets hit by lightning nearby.

The lion mane makes Chatterbox brave. Naw, it was just play no fighting between these two.

Finally, I couldn’t take the rain any longer. They have nothing but a few toys at home.

As always, Enzo and Tobias are in their own little world.

Auntie Sierra stopped by to visit. I actually forgot she moved out. I’m so used to the kids sticking around in Stratus Burne.

Enough toy time. Now what to do? A chat with Chatterbox for Dion.

Hugs and flashcards for Zeke.

A run for Puddin’.

Seriously? There’s no difference between that outfit and the other! I swear I had a mod to stop them overheating in athletic wear.

While Tobias made his way home, Zeke and Dion got flashcards. Zeke’s kinda old at this point but there’s not much else to do.

I noticed how pretty the sky is and had to take a few landscape pics.

No scratchin’!

I don’t think biting the lid is going to help, Dion.

Dad gave him some pomello slices instead.

Adorable goofballs. But, it’s time to move on.

Extras…

Oh heck no I don’t think so! You’re in the wrong world buddy! It’s so separate in my mind that I had a hard time understanding how he was in Ash Shore at first.

Ash Shore Extra: Planting Day

Rhythm 1/Turning 2/Season 4

As you should know by now since I’ve been blathering on and on about it through most of this last round, the gardening system in Ash Shore is getting a huge overhaul to compensate for the huge Seasons overhaul that Sims did.  And really, I wasn’t growing nearly enough in the first place!  I was sad to see the little circle garden go.

Yikes.  And they only planted the summer crop at Dean and Judy’s.  Time to call in the reinforcements!

Everyone from the gardening families were enlisted to help plant.  When I called it Planting Day I was not exaggerating!

Keane chatted with Patchy since he, sadly, cannot help.

Umm… Isaac?  Those aren’t the plants that need tending bud!  Dean had to go and get his attention and bring him up by the garden.

I think Fish feels left out too.

See?

Tobias!  This is not the time for your constant cellphone obsession!

I guess Fish was just hungry.

Finished!  Moving on…

Sorry, Sierra but you do live in a gardening household even if you won’t live there much longer and thus are enlisted to help out.

The cats were excited about all of the company.  Funny story about that corn…

Previously, you had to plant a corn stalk.  I searched and searched buy mode to no avail.  Finally, I looked on Icemunmun’s download page and saw that it had been changed so that you can plant it!  Doh!

The cats were highly entertaining.

The crops go from winter in the back to summer in the front.  Eventually, they’ll all have planter boxes to make it easier to rotate crops to the front per season.

This is the first time ever that a sim has randomly shown up and knocked on a door in this neighborhood in Windenburg.

Hilarious!  Sorry Casen y’all will depend on the income from crops when you’re not repairing stuff!

All done!  Time to move on.

If you were wondering where Zeke and Dion were this whole time.

This cracked me up!  When they were waiting for the others to show up Chatterbox was hungry and Enzo filled a bowl and called her to eat but Puddin’ zoomed in and got the food first forcing Chatterbox to eat out of the other bowl!

The trees were the most difficult set-up out of the three.  There is one winter tree!  I think I had them plant 2 more of those just so it wasn’t lonely back there.  Then they go forward from fall to summer which there are a lot of.  The trees in the area where Dean, Layla, and Enzo are at the moment are all year round trees.  Mostly lemons.

Chatterbox was sick.  Sorry bud, you’ll have to wait.

Lights were placed.  Didn’t I tell you it was an all day thing?

Poor baby.

Puddin’ poses.

Finished!  It was almost midnight!  They started a little after 7 am at Dean and Judy’s!  I can only assume that changing households somehow filled their needs.

Except for the apples because it was too cold to plant.  But they’re fall trees!  Isn’t it cold in fall?  LOL!
