6.8: On the Road Again

Hello everybody! So, I wasn’t planning for this to happen for another generation or so but…we have to move. My Dragon Valley save’s been horribly slow lately, so I checked the file size. It was over 7,000 MB. 7,000!!! I’ve hardly had files over 500 MB before! So everyone was promptly packed up and shipped off to a new hood.

Screenshot-8

So, here’s our new house in the town of Mesa Grande by aaronrogers8i3. This person has made some amazing base-game compatible worlds, including a Sims 3 version of Strangetown that I’ll definitely be using in a legacy at some point. I highly recommend their works!

The house pre-made from the bin. When I started playing in the new town, I wasn’t really in the building mood. If I end up liking it, we’ll stay here and I’ll redecorate everything. But for now, I left it all as-is.

Screenshot-17

All the relationships were kept intact except for the kids’ romances, so off Carnie goes to re-woo his lady love. The female quads have all aged up during the move (Lisette, Celeste, and Antoinette), but poor Pierre got stuck as a toddler.

Screenshot-18

Ling is sent to the Dolan household to do the same.

Deerling: Greetings, father-in-law. I’m here to reclaim my property.

Finn: Son, this is your girlfriend? You must be kidding. Surely there’s another one hiding around here somewhere.

Screenshot-20

I took pity on Pierre and aged him up with his sisters.

Peirre: What just happened?…

Screenshot-21

Carnivine: So, you still wanna be my girlfriend right?

Carolyn: Definitely.

Screenshot-22

Success. Again.

Screenshot-23

Finn: I don’t trust that girl…me and my hoard of dogs will be watching…

Screenshot-24

Two of the puppy siblings started attacking each other while we commenced with the romance.

Ace: Get ’em, Titus! Brother Krypto will pay for implying that our mother was a llama!

Deerling: Do you hear something, dear?

Andy: Nothing out of the ordinary, Ling.

Screenshot-25

Krypto: This looks like a lovely place to lay down and die…

Titus: Sorry, sorry! I shouldn’t have attacked you like that…

Deerling: So, you’re still my boyfriend, right husband?

Andy: Of course, babe.

Screenshot-26

Mission accomplished.

Screenshot-27

Finn: You know, I think I changed my mind. They make a rather lovely pair, don’t you think?

Screenshot-29

Bellossom: She’s painting a giraffe? Omg, my followers have to hear about this!

Chandra: Don’t you have something better to do?

Screenshot-30

Bellossom: Fine, fine. I guess I’ll just search the universe for more celestial bodies to name after Pokemon ships…

Screenshot-31

Right back to work with Ling. The move to a new town will not deter her from her mission.

Screenshot-32

I’m never quite sure what to do with Carnie, as he never rolls any skill related wishes. Finally, he decided to write a book.

Carnivine: I will document my experiences as the unloved spare child in a typical legacy family…in space.

Screenshot-33

Chandra: I am the greatest fairy of all time!

Bellossom: And so humble.

Screenshot-34

Deerling: Why do I have to do this? We’re filthy rich. Can’t I just buy all the scrap I need?

It’s the principle of the thing, dear.

Screenshot-38

 

Screenshot-39

Screenshot-40

Carnie’s revenge from last chapter, I suppose.

Screenshot-43

Carnivine: What have I done? I feel so ashamed…

Screenshot-49

Yuri grew into a teen.

Screenshot-53

Screenshot-54

Alex and Jordan.

Screenshot-58

And here’s Espeon’s baby, Shane. He takes a lot after mommy.

Painting Get

Chandra maxed painting!

Screenshot-50

With this lovely cat portrait.

Promotion 1

And Em officially completed his LTW!

Screenshot-55

Missingno: Em shall forever be known as the most evil and powerful Sim alive.

Screenshot-56

I guess that intrigued the aliens…

Screenshot-57

Alien: Well, that was fun. See ya!

Missingno: Em feels so violeted…

Screenshot-59

Deerling: Father, it’s absolutely rubbish that you get to glow red and I don’t. I demand glowey redness too.

Missingno: Become the empress of evil and we’ll talk, sweetie.

Screenshot-60

Deerling: Father is cool. I love father. >-<

Logic Get

‘Father’ is just on a roll this chapter.

Screenshot-62

Missingno: Oh yeah. Em’s the best.

Screenshot-64

One of the kids brought this guy home from school. I don’t remember his name, but he’s adorable. Everyone in this town is super attractive!

Screenshot-67

Carnivine: I don’t have much time left in this house…how best to leave an impression?…

Screenshot-68

Deerling: I shall soothe you all!

Chandra: It’d soothe me if you’d do the damn dishes…

Screenshot-69

Deerling: I am so awesome. It’s almost time to plow my husband.

Chandra: I really did not need to hear that.

Screenshot-70

Birthday time!

Deerling: Yeah, yeah. Let’s get this over with. I wanna seduce my guy already.

Screenshot-73

Here’s our girl! Her final trait was irresistible, and she wants to be a monster maker. I’m not so sure how I feel about that hair. It seemed like a good idea in CAS…

Deerling: Change it and I’ll shank you.

Screenshot-74

And here’s Bell. Or, her profile at least.

Missingno: Happy birthday, not get out!

Carnivine: That’ll be me someday. How depressing.

Screenshot-76

Goodbye, Bell. Hopefully you have a better life in SP.

Screenshot-75

Deerling: Hey, birthday boy. Get your butt down to the beach, stat.

Screenshot-79

Andy: Hey, Ling. What’d you wanna talk about?

Deerling: I have a very important question for you.

Screenshot-80

Deerling: Become my for real husband?

Screenshot-81

Andy: OMG YES!

Screenshot-82

Deerling: I don’t say it enough, but I love you husband.

Andy: I love you too, babe.

Screenshot-83

Hey, where’d he go?

Deerling: ….he left.

Screenshot-84

Oh no…

~chimes~

Screenshot-85

I hope you’re satisfied.

Chandra: I am. Immensely.

Screenshot-86

Carnivine: Hey, what are sister and her boyfriend doing outside next to an arch?

Screenshot-87

I guess he was still there. He followed us home. I wanted a cute beach wedding, but oh well. At least we got a pretty proposal.

Screenshot-88

Screenshot-89

Screenshot-90

Carnivine: I’m so happy to have witnessed this moment.

Screenshot-93

They get onto some baby making as well.

Screenshot-94

Carnivine: We’re gonna have a lot of babies in this house…

Screenshot-95

Meet Andy Kanto everybody! His current LTW is chess legend like Leds, but I’ll probably change it to the tinkerer once he gets enough points.

Screenshot-101

Puke shot. I hate you so much right now…

Screenshot-98

Right back to work for this one.

Screenshot-102

Ling will be the one taking care of the garden, but Em already has seeds in his inventory so I let him plant them.

Screenshot-103

Graduation time! Although Ling has to puke first.

Andy: Babe, c’mon. I wanna get this over with.

Screenshot-104

Graduation 1

Screenshot-105

Graduation 2

Screenshot-106

And a pop for Chandra.

(Side note: I hate graduation…the adults in the house who aren’t even graduating wear their robes around for the rest of the day and it’s annoying…)

That’s all I have for you today, folks. Maybe we’ll have babies next time! Thanks for reading, and happy simming!

6.7: Nobody Loves Me

A long, long time ago, there was an heir poll. With only two candidates, the fight was bitter and nasty up till the end. There was bloodshed and there were tears, but finally, a champion was chosen….in all seriousness though, the poll ended a while back and now we’re finally going to continue this legacy.

Screenshot-7

When we left off, Carolyn was still hanging out at our house. Bell doesn’t seem to think much of her…

Bellossom: Do you know what happens in this house? They ignore you and forget that you exist, that’s what! You’re stupid if you have any intentions of living here!

Carolyn: Ummm, Carnie and I just started dating today…isn’t it a bit too soon to be thinking about moving in?

Screenshot-8

Chandra: Did I just hear you trying to make a move on my son and take over my house?! I’ll show you!!!

Carolyn: Wait, what?!

Bellossom: Yeah, that’s right bitch.

Screenshot-9

Chandra: Stay down, dammit!

Screenshot-10

Carnivine: Hey, Bell. What’s going on?

Bellossom: Oh, nothing important…

Screenshot-11

Carolyn: Let me at ‘er, let me at ‘er!

Chandra: I don’t think so!

Carnivine: Yeah, you’re right. Nothing strange going on here.

Screenshot-12

Chandra: That’ll show you not to mess with my family.

Carnivine: Hey sweetie, what are you doing down there? I don’t think that’s really appropriate behavior in front of my mom.

Carolyn: Thank plumbob you weren’t voted heir and I don’t have to live in this insanity…

Carnivine: Wait, I’m not the heir!?!

Screenshot-13

That’s right, Deerling was voted heir! How do you feel about that, love?

Deerling: Eh. That’s cool, I guess.

I figured you’d be more excited.

Deerling: I’m busy inventing crap, what do you want from me?

Screenshot-14

Carnivine: Kekeke, this will show mother for beating up my girlfriend, and sister for stealing my throne!

You never showed any interest in being heir, sweetie.

Carnivine: I just want to be loved!

Screenshot-16

Missingno: What happened to Em’s perfect hair?

Screenshot-17

Missingno: Someone will pay for this…

Screenshot-18

Carnivine: I guess I’ll just play Foosball down here, all by myself…

Hey, you just died your father’s hair electric blue and you think you deserve attention?

Carnivine: He’s fine now, isn’t he?

Screenshot-19

So he is.

Missingno: But Em is still very irate! Step one, master chess. Step two, take over the world so son will perish for his transgressions!

Screenshot-20

Carnivine: Sister! You’ve come to play with me!

Deerling: I’m doing this under duress! And also, the stereo’s broken. Nothing else to do in this damn house…

Carnivine: I’ll take whatever love I can get!

Screenshot-21

Here’s Bell, since she was complaining about being ignored earlier. I really don’t have anything against her, she just doesn’t do anything interesting. But she has taught me not to bring anymore IFs to life unless I absolutely need to.

Bellossom: Gee, thanks. Glad to be of assistance.

Screenshot-50

Screenshot-51

Ditto’s twins! On the top is Alex, who’s a Sophie clone. On bottom is Jordan, who’s a clone of her daddy. Hooray for genetic diversity.

Screenshot-52

Em really loves his baby dragon.

Missingno: Foo foo for Goo Goo.

Screenshot-53

Chandra: You may think you’re above us because you’re the big fancy heiress, but while your father’s still in charge I will squash you like a bug if you misbehave!

Deerling: Chill, ma. What’d I even do?

Chandra: Wearing that swimsuit when you’re not swimming? The impropriety!

Deerling: Ma, you’re loosing it. And that’s saying something, since I’m actually insane.

Screenshot-54

Carnivine: There’s nothing like relaxing after a long day of brooding…

Screenshot-55

Deerling: Brother. We must do something about mom’s behavior lately.

Carnivine: I don’t know what you’re talking about. She seems fine to me.

Deerling: She attacked your girlfriend.

Carnivine: It was done out of LOVE. Something you wouldn’t understand.

Screenshot-56

Deerling: Don’t understand love? HA! I understand love perfectly fine. The evil gnome purchased atop my inventing table agrees with me.

Oh no…only good things can happen here…

Screenshot-57

Chandra: Son of mine, come listen to my nasty gossip about your girlfriend.

Screenshot-58

Carnivine: You know what? You are being mean lately. This isn’t a video game, mom. You can’t just pick the awful option to see what happens and save scum till you get the right one.

Screenshot-59

Chandra: God, you’re such a nerd. ~person person minus~

Screenshot-60

Deerling: Ummm…

Screenshot-61

Deerling: Oh crap, I’m on FIRE!

Screenshot-62

Carnivine: Sister, wait. Let me casually float over to help you.

Deerling: This is no time for your weird, brotherly affection Carnie! I actually might die right now!

Carnivine: Well, fine. See if I ever try to help you again.

Screenshot-63

Deerling: I can’t believe this is my life now…

Screenshot-66

Carnivine: Since nobody in this house pays attention to me, I’ll just write a sappy letter to Carrie, the only person who appreciates me.

Screenshot-3

When she’s not antagonising her kids, Chandra still paints a lot.

Screenshot-5

She also loves all over her hubby, the only person she’s never mean to.

Screenshot-6

And sometimes she even cooks.

Screenshot-7

Not that she’s very good at that job…

Promotion 1

Promotion for Em! He’s getting there.

Screenshot-8

Missingno: Em can’t believe how deliciously evil he’s becoming.

Screenshot-10

No, really. He means it.

Missingno: KEKEKEKE.

Bellossom: Okay, I get it. You’re evil. Now will you stop cackling already?

Screenshot-14

Missingno: Fine! Em will just spy on people from across the street.

Screenshot-15

Just showing off Carnie’s thievery. He snagged this seller’s rug from somewhere…

Screenshot-2

And this bear was taken from his cousin, Yuri. He wished to return the rug from whatever random adult, but not a child’s teddy…cruel.

Screenshot-4

Anything to say for yourself?

Carnivine: Not really, no.

Screenshot-5

Screenshot-7

Dang it…

Screenshot-6

Chandra: Do you know where my son is?

No, why?

Chandra: Because, he’s with those heathens…I need a drink for this.

Screenshot-10

Carnivine: ~gulp~ I think I need a drink…

Screenshot-11

Aine: Son, who’s this kid?

Rickon: I don’t know, mother. He just followed me home.

Carnivine: Love me!

Screenshot-12

Aine: Ewww, it wants affection? Get that thing out of my house!

Rickon: Aww, ma. Be cool.

Screenshot-13

Carnivine: So the x in this equation goes here then?

Rickon: Yeah, I think so.

Screenshot-14

Carnivine: Is this right? Did I do it right?

Rickon: You forgot to multiply by two at the end.

Screenshot-15

Carnivine: Wow, you’re so good at this! I need you to help me with ALL the problems.

Rickon: Plumbob, what did I get myself into?…

Screenshot-16

Deerling: That’s nice. Little brother’s making friends. Which means he’ll leave me alone…

To wrap things up, we have two announcements.

Romance 1

Leds has a new bae. Luckily she can’t have anymore kids.

Romance 2

And Espeon’s finally expecting!

Thank you all so much for reading, and I hope it doesn’t take so long to get to the next chapter! I would totally be doing Sims NaNoWriMo right now if it didn’t fall on the busiest month of the year for me, but good luck to all who are participating! Happy Simming!
