Chapter 4.2 Choosing the Right Daye

How about that, you lucky people get another chapter! I am going to be busy over the next couple of weeks and may not get the time for sims.

Last time we saw the triplets become young adults and Lucky take over as the torch holder.  Also Piper died and I added 3 Dayes to the town.  This time we will find out who she chooses.  First though…

Twit (84)

Magrat: So cold *shivers*

You seem to be turning a little blue there, you ok?

Magrat: *freezes solid*

*rolls eyes* I swear you and Melon have both have death wish.  Do you stop to think that maybe sleeping outside in the snow, in the middle of winter, in your bikini was a bad idea?

Twit (86)

 

Seeing as no one else cared enough to do it autonomously I sent Lucky thaw her mother out.

Lucky: This is only going to get worse after your birthday, isn’t it?

Lucky is gay

I mean to add this in the last chapter.  Before I added the Daye girls I checked Lucky’s gender preference.  Yup, she’s gay.

 

Melon the perv

Something caught my eye when I went into Melon’s social menu to do this.  Check out the ‘Sketch Nude’ option he has.  No, just no.

Melon: It’s not perverted or anything. It’s art.

Yeah, that’s not really helping your case.

Lucky: *walks away*

Melon isn’t the only creepy one though. Check out this wish Maya had.

Maya's wish

What is wrong with you people?! o_O

Screenshot-8

 

I don’t know about you but I need some cuteness after all that.  These two little cuties are Cookie Crisp’s twin daughters.  She gave birth after the triplets party.  They are Margie and Marlene.

Screenshot-6

 

I had Lucky go to CC’s house to met them.  This is Doug Finch, the girl’s father and CC’s boyfriend.  I suppose she could do worse.

Twit (50)

As I mentioned last time Lucky went to the beach to meet Giggles and Koi.  Koi ran off as soon as Lucky got there but I had Lucky introduce herself to Giggles.  I left them to it to see how they got on and Lucky thought the best way to impress her was to spout madness.

Lucky: Have you heard the world is a giant blueberry covered in chocolate sauce?

Giggles: What?!

Twit (53)

Giggles: You are crazy woman.  Please leave me alone.

Lucky: I don’t know what went wrong. 😦

RB Baby

 

Imediately after this I had a series of notifications about Giggles and Ready Brek.  It appears while Giggles was at the beach she hooked up with Lucky’s brother.  The pair are now married and expecting their first child.  I guess Lucky won’t be choosing her then.

Ready Brek: You snooze, you loose.

Twit (79)

The next day Lucky had to go to city hall to get an award.  She has done 3 cases as a PI.  All fairly simple and boring hacking cases.  There was a protest going on outside that attracted a lot of people.  One of them was Koi so Lucky grabbed the chance to introduce herself.

Lucky: What are they protesting about?

Twit (76)

Ladybugs apparently.

Twit (81)

The pair hit it off and Lucky turns on the charm.  Apparently napkins are a good seduction topic.

Twit (82)

Aw cute.  I think she likes her….

Lucky likes Koi

 

A lot judging by her wish panel.  We have a contender but I will need to see how she gets on with 24HourSpar first.

Screenshot

While lucky is out the camera suddenly pans home where a couple of things happen.  First it appears Melon nearly gets eaten, AGAIN.

Melon has a death wish

 

I swear you guys are determined to loose me more points.

The other thing that happened was this.

Screenshot-12

Nolan: Oh this doesn’t feel good at all.

Screenshot-13

Nolan: Well looks like my time has come.

Screenshot-14

Nolan: Don’t cry for me sweet Maya.

Screenshot-16

Melon: Daddy?

Nolan: Oh are you my ride.

Death: Something like that, ready to go?

Screenshot-19

Melon: Daddy no! *cries*

Nolan: It’s ok son, It’s my time.

Death: Where’s my fans. I’m used to a bigger audience than this.

Coco: My food bowl is empty.

 

Screenshot-23

Nolan: OK I’m ready.

At the age of 100 Nolan leaves us.  Melon was the only person in the house at the time expect for one other.

Screenshot-25

Maya was there but obviously pancakes are more important than your husband’s passing.

Screenshot-28

 

Nolan gets added to the basement.  I added a little something to mark his job and the diner.

Twit (97)

 

As mentioned in the last chapter Lucky met 24HourSpar at the gym.  She had to leave to go to work so Lucky invites her over.  Suprisingly she agrees! We spam the romantic interactions and they seem to get along nicely.  Lucky doesn’t roll any wishes for her though so it looks like Koi has won her heart.  However we are not quite done with 24HourSpar just yet.  She may not be Lucky’s spouse but that doesn’t mean we can’t get a baby out of her. 😀

Despite being hydrophobic Lucky decides the best place to try of baby is the hot tub.  Where the two of them engage in syncronised foot looking. (or whatever you want to call it)

As is the way 24HourSpar does the strut as she leaves.

Lucky: *inner monologue* As I watched her leave I wondered what the repercussions of my actions would be.   I was in love with another but I now carried this woman’s child.   

Could you stop that please.  You are not going to speak in inner monologue all the time.

Lucky: *inner monologue* I again heard a strange voice, no one seems to know where it comes from.  Everyone seems to obey it with no questions though.  I will make it my mission to discover the origins of this mysterious voice.

Ok, I’m just going to go somewhere else now.

Screenshot-30

Seymour tries to tempt another victim. This time the maid.

(apologies for walls down.)

Screenshot-32 Screenshot-34

Seymour: Burp

(He spat her out.)

Seymour: I just have an acquired taste

Twit (91)

With her choice made Lucky goes to the Daye house and gets her girl.

Lucky: So, I want to be your girlfriend.

Twit (92)

 

She agrees, yay!

Screenshot-10

Lucky: OoOoh , I don’t feel so good.

Really? hmm, how strange.

Screenshot-11 Screenshot-36

We have a baby on the way! 😀

OK syncronised birthday, go!

Screenshot-39 Screenshot-43 Screenshot-44 Screenshot-45 Screenshot-46 Screenshot-47

Lucky: Ha ha, awesome!

Screenshot-58 Screenshot-62

 

Aren’t they adorable as elders.  Sad to see another generation almost gone though, it goes by so fast.  *sobs*

Screenshot-71

Birthday done I send Lucky back to the Daye house.  With Nolan gone there is only four sims (plus cat) in the house and it feels empty.  Time to move Koi in.

Lucky: Hey bro! Guess what, I’m having a baby!

Screenshot-72

Ready Brek: Well done sis!

Lucky: Seriously? I’m having a baby and he pats my shoulder?

Screenshot-76

Aww, so cute.  Koi had a betrayed moodlet here but luckily Lucky had her dad’s moodlet manager and sorted it. 😀 best LTH reward ever!

Screenshot-75

Lucky: So want to move in?

Koi: Sure.It’s about to get crowded here.

Screenshot-77

Aw Piper came out and slept in his favourite spot.

Piper: I wonder if chicken still tastes the same

Screenshot-81

Don’t know if this will happen again soon. 4 generations in one picture.

And finally a cute pic of Coco fishing in the river behind the house.

Screenshot-84

And one of Koi. She decided the best thing to do in a new house where three of the people don’t know you is to skinny dip in the hot tub where your girlfriend conceived her child with your housemate.

Wow that’s messed up.

Chapter 4.1 Frosty Face

So here we are at the start of a new generation.  Goes by so fast doesn’t it.  I changed the header and background colour.  Nice huh?

Melon: I prefered it pink. 😦

Your time is over.

Melon: 😥

Now before we get to the triplets birthday there are a couple of things to get out of the way first.

Number one is this, which happened as soon as I started my last play session.

 

Screenshot-5

 

At the grand old age of 54, having outlived his owner Tobias Piper is taken from us. 😦

Magrat *evil cackle*

Ready Brek: I didn’t expect to be this close to death at such a young age.

Screenshot-6

 

Here’s a close up of Magrat’s face, just because.

Screenshot-9

 

Coco: Oh good, more attention for me.

Death: Time to go poochie.

 

Screenshot-14

 

Death: Come on, get the stick.

And so the first pet in this legacy (i think) dies.  I put his grave in the back garden but I forgot to take a picture of it.

Screenshot-22

So what’s the best thing to do after death takes your dog? Build a snowman with him of course.  I was hoping it was going to be a cool death one but alas it was just a normal one.

Screenshot-17

 

Melon why so sad?

Melon: *sobs* I got a promotion *sobs*

Yes so why is that sad?

Melon: I fulfiled my LTW, what do I have to live for now?

Melon LTW complete

+25

Melon: Also poor little Piper has left us.

You were no where near the house when that happened, how do you have the moodlet?

Screenshot-26

So Melon finally stops crying and comes home. But what is the first thing he does?

Seymour: You smell good. ❤

Melon: Hey that tickles.

Screenshot-28

Seymour: You look like you’ve had a bad day, how about some cake.

Melon: Ooh I like cake.

Um, Melon I wouldn’t do that.

Melon: Why?

Screenshot-30

Seymour: *Omnnomnom*

Well, that.

Screenshot-32

Phew, thankfully Seymour spat him out again.  I was panicking when that happened.  I was wondering if this meant the end of the ISBI!

Melon: Ew, Cowplant slobber.

Screenshot-33

 

It was at this time I noticed Maya hadn’t returned from work.  I found her outside the business centre in her sleeping bag.  At least she isn’t loosing me points.

Right I think that’s everything.  PARTY TIME!!

Screenshot-59

First at the door is a very pregnant Cookie Crisp.  Can’t wait to see what the baby is like. Just try not to give birth at the party sweetie.

CC: Nice to see you to.

 

Screenshot-61

Yay I got them all at the cakes at the same time.

Rice Krispies: I’m glad Weetabix made it.

Ready Brek: YAY BIRTHDAY!

Screenshot-65 Screenshot-72

Oh thank goodness she didn’t get the massive boobs.

Screenshot-79 Screenshot-80

 

Sigh I was doing so well. -5

Screenshot-99

The woman seen cheering in previous photos with the family is Abrielle King.  She is All Bran’s wife.  She is a premade sim that was his friend from school.  she is so pretty. Please please please make some babies.

Here are the makeovers.

Twit (12)

First up Rice Krispies.  Wow he turned out hot ❤ His new trait is Flirty and his LTW is Grand Explorer.

Twit (14)

Next up is Ready Brek. Not bad.  His new trait is Athletic and his LTW is Astronaut.

Screenshot-94

 

And finally our new Torch Holder Lucky Charms.  She turned out so pretty.  Her new trait is Insane so you will be seeing all the other outfits I made her.  Her LTW is Private Eye.

They will all be available for download shortly.

Screenshot-84

So Melon how does it feel to no longer be under my control?

Melon: Wahoo! Freedom! 😀

Gee thanks.

Twit (1)

So what is his first action as free sim? He joins the rockers of course.

Nolan: I have to tell you son, it is a very exclusive club.

Screenshot-109

Lucky: Why am I wearing this? it’s ugly.

Because it’s graduation time.  Wait I detect a disturbance…

Screenshot-104

Oh Maya -5

Screenshot-111

Maya: Which one’s which?

Man they look so similar. I never noticed before.  Yeah and those hats are so stupid.

Screenshot-115

 

Ha ha! I love how there are three doors and they each came out of a separate one.

Oh and the sim in the sleeping bag is Magrat.

Here are their results for anyone that is interested.

Lucky graduate Ready Brek Graduate Rice Krispies Graduate Screenshot-103

When I got back from graduation I noticed we have a new gnome.  The naming theme this time is Doctor Who Companions I named it Peri.

Peri

Peri was Companion to the 5th and 6th Doctors

Twit (3)

Lucky: I don’t like this place, why am I here?

Twit (4)

I off load these of course.

Yup, still creepy.

Twit (7)

 

While she was out she got herself a job as a Private Investigator.  It is not a profession I have done before so should be fun.

Twit (29)

So with Lucky being the TH it was time for the boys to go.  Bye guys, have fun.

Twit (31)

LOL Lucky did a face down snow angel.  Is this an thing Insane sims do?

Lucky Frosty Face

She got this cute little moodlet that I haven’t seen before.

Twit (44)

Lucky got her first case! This woman Lola Lancaster-Reid wanted Lucky to hack the computer of Kinslee Hudson.  Easy one.

Twit (36)

 

Ah yes the portrait.  I did get Melon to do it but it kept coming out weird and stylised so I had a bright idea.  It says in the rules that non controllable sims can have one controlled interaction per age state so I thought this must apply to elders too.  Therefore Maya done Lucky’s Portrait. 😀

Maya: YEAH!

Twit (46)

 

OK time for spouse hunting.  I know I said 24HourSpar Daye was going to be the spouse but in a few stories that I have read recently I saw a selection of sims dropped in for the heir to choose from. So I selected these lovely ladies from Dayes of our Lives.  From L to R we have 24HourSpar Daye, Koi Daye and Giggles Daye.  We will see who Lucky likes best.

I tweeked them a little. for example 24hourspar has a different top as her original one was the same as Magrat’s and I aletered Koi’s hair a little and added leggings under her shorts (it is winter after all).

Screenshot-37

Uh oh not this again.

Seymour: Want cake?

Maya: Why how kind.

Screenshot-39

Seymour: Omnomnom

ARGH MAYA NO!

Screenshot-41

Seymour: Ha ha ha

Screenshot-42

Seymour *bleurgh* Old woman taste bad.

Oh thank goodness, I can breath again.  Will someone fed that thing so this doesn’t keep happening.

Screenshot-46

Coco: I will distract you with me cuteness.

Melon: Aww.

Lucky and me stalked found Koi and Giggles at the beach so she introduced herself to them.

Twit (48) Twit (49)

We then stalked found 24HourSpar at the gym (I think it was the gym)

Twit (54)

 

But who ends up as Lucky’s spouse? Come back next time to find out.

Torch Holders: 3

Every birth: (+5) 11 x 5 = 55

Heir/Spouse Portrait: +5  5 x 5 = 25

Chapter 3.13 The Final Curtain

Hi guys! Hope you all enjoyed the holidays.

Do you know evertime I put that all I can think of is this. (skip to 2:40 to see the bit I am referring to. Sorry about the quality it was the best I could find) It is from a great UK sitcom called Max & Paddy’s Road to Nowhere.  If you haven’t seen it go and find it, it is brilliant!

I had wanted to get this chapter out sooner but I needed to play through the teen years first.  Plus I recently got Pokemon Omega Ruby so I have been playing that.  I do wonder if it is ok to still be playing Pokemon games when I am in my 30s!

Last time Melon did some portraits, there were birthdays and Seymour claimed his first victim.

Screenshot-19

Following his first kill Seymour has been getting a lot more attention.

Lucky: I still wonder why Dad bought this thing.

All Bran: I like it, it’s quirky.

Seymour: I want candy

Screenshot-38

Melon is still chained to the easel when he has free time.  He is painting a portrait of Jacklyn’s ghost which he had a wish for.  I am keen to see how it turns out.

Melon: I hope you aren’t doubting my talents.

Oh, the outfit he is wearing is also to fulfil a wish.  He is going through a mid life crisis and wanted a stylish makover.

Melon: That may have been a mistake. I see nothing stylish about this.

Don’t worry I deleted it.

Melon: 😀

Screenshot-39

Rice Krispies: Your getting a little tubby bro.  Might want to lay off dessert for a while.

Ready Brek: Yeah, what if Dad decides to do a portrait of you.

Weetabix: *is too busy playing game to notice*

Guys be nice.

Screenshot-42

The boys are not the only ones to play video games though.

Lucky: And that Coco is how we win at Mario Kart!

Coco: (Can I chase them now?)

Piper: zzzz Must fetch ball zzzz

Screenshot-43

Another of Melon’s mid life crisis wishes was to get a haircut.  I gave him this slightly longer style.  I think he looks good.

Melon: I always look good.

(Notice this is before I recoloured the bathrooms)

Screenshot-53

Maya, the toilet is right there!

Maya: Can’t hold it as long as I used to.

Magrat is not taking getting older very well. She is constantly checking for wrinkles.

Magrat: Oh there’s another one.  They are multiplying I’m sure of it.

Screenshot-44

Jacklyn’s portrait is done.  Looks good actually.  I kept it.  I am not giving myself any points for this one as she is dead already.

Melon: Good? It’s magnificent!

Modest as always, aren’t you

sweet  (13)

Coco: (Look at me, I’m cute.)

CC & Lucky: *ignores and plays game*

Ready Brek: Wow, I didn’t know you could stretch that far Coco.

sweet  (15)

Another portrait done.  I think this is his best one yet.

sweet  (21)

Melon: OK Grandpa nearly done

Tobias: Hurry up boy, I think something cracked.

I let Tobias keep his Christmas jumper as I liked it on him.

sweet  (22)

Melon: Ta da *waits for approval*

sweet  (23)

Tobias: Is that supposed to be me?

Melon: Yes, see you’re holding a cup of tea.

sweet  (25)

Tobias: Then I love it! ❤

sweet  (32)

I finally got Magrat a job.  She is in the criminal career starting at level 4 due to her degree.

Magrat: This pleases me. Plus this lighting makes me look younger.

sweet  (43)

Since I got this thing there is always one of them out here working on it.  Gives them something productive to do.

sweet  (44)

I think is is when we upgraded the graphics card in our computer. Can’t see any difference in picture quality but game runs smoother now.

I have nothing to say about this picture.  Just thought it was cute.

sweet  (63)

Lucky: Don’t you think it’s a little creepy that you spend your nights taking photos of teenage girls?

sweet  (64)

Rice Krispies: *licks plate*

Melon: You couldn’t have waited for me to finish these pancakes?

Rice Krispies: But there was still a little food left.  See it filled my hunger.

Melon: When do they leave?

sweet  (65)

Weetabix found the easel and painted this cute pink giraffe.  I think I sold it.  I love it when they skill on their own.

Weetabix: I aim to please.

sweet  (72)

This was a cute moment.  Jacklyn came out and Tobias went over to talk to her.

Jacklyn: Still hanging on then?

Tobias: I have so much to live for.

What the rocking chair?

sweet  (75)

Maid: OMG He’s naked again and he’s coming over.  Eyes on the face, eyes on the face.

sweet  (80)

Nolan: Here we go again.

sweet  (83)

After talking to the maid Tobias went over and stood behind Rice Krispies while he did his homework.  Creepy and wrong, go and put some clothes on.

Rice Krispies: If I just ignore him he might go away.

sweet  (95)

He did leave Rice Krispies alone, he went outside to have a water balloon fight, still naked.

Oh Tobais you do amuse me. 😀

Birthday time! The twins are becoming Young Adults!

sweet  (100)

sweet  (106) sweet  (110) sweet  (114) sweet  (118)

Wowzers he’s hot! His new trait is Insane and his LTW is Martial Arts Master.

sweet  (121)

I was going to add a beard to Weetabix too but it didn’t look right.  His new trait is Supernatural fan and his LTW is Master of the Arts.

They will both be added to the download list shortly.

Since the boys didn’t move out straight away and no one in this house is a freeloader I got them jobs.  Weetabix got a job in Music and All Bran in Sport

sweet  (127) sweet  (129) sweet  (134)

Lucky slept in that day and missed school.  Magrat was on to her straight away and grounded her.

sweet  (136)

She wandered into the kitchen where All Bran let her off! 😀

All Bran: It’s ok, Mum’s just a little cranky this morning.

sweet  (140)

These two still love each other which is nice. ❤

Melon: It’s only natural. I mean look at me, how could she not want a piece of Melon.

twit (1)

Since she is the heir I gave Lucky a mini makeover. (meaning I got some new pattens and wanted to use them!) 😀

twit (7)

Finally at the amazing age of 156 Tobias finally succumbed to old age.  Not sure if I was relived or sad when this happened.  Probably both.

Tobias: Hey look I’m floating!

twit (10)

Tobais: Well look at that, I can see through my hand

Maya: Dad?

twit (15)

Death: *Loud cracking* Ooh my back, I have to find a better way to travel.

twit (17)

Death: Ahem, I mean Tobias Mendoza your time is up.  You have avoided me for too long.

Tobias: What’s going on? Why is everyone crying?

Lucky: I’m not crying, just something in my eye.

twit (22)

Tobias: Please don’t take me yet. I have so much to live for.

Death: Just get in the urn, I have a tight schedule to keep

twit (24)

RIP Tobias.  You were my oldest living sim.

Resurrection wanted

Directly after his death Maya, CC, Ready Brek and Nolan all rolled the wish to resurrect Tobias.

Um, no. That’s sweet but it’s never going to happen.

twit (35)

Ready Brek: *squeal* A real life zombie.

Blondepap: Is this kid high or something?

twit (39)

Weetabix: This oven needs cleaning.

You think you could maybe clean it?

Weetabix: Not in my best suit.

All Bran: Need input.

twit (41)

So I was just generally looking around, seeing what they were all upto when I saw this look on Nolan’s face.  First I thought he was looking at the cat.  Then I panned out….

twit (42)

And saw what he was really looking at.

Nolan: I’m all about that bass

Nolan!

twit (40)

This painting marks Melon maxing out the painting skill.  Not sure if that is supposed to be the world or a green ball.

twit (57)

He got a plaque though which I hung in his bedroom.

twit (44)

All Bran: That painting has inspired me.

Please don’t sing what I think you’re going to sing.

All Bran: ‘Rocking all over the world!’

Sigh -.-

twit (49)

Magrat: I don’t feel good. I’m just going to lie down for a bit.

twit (56)

Holy smokes what happened to you? You were doing homework?

CC: I’m so good at maths, I’m on fire!

Sure you are.

twit (59)

All Bran: Look Mum, I’m a star

Magrat: That’s nice dear

twit (63)

Melon & Magrat are not the only couple who like to dance.  Maya and Nolan are at it too.

Nolan: Oh my back.  Honey help me up will you, I seem to be stuck.

Screenshot-8

It’s birthday time again.  This time it’s CC. Check out that smile.

Screenshot-12

Aww even the cat turned up to watch.

Coco: I just want cake

Screenshot-16

Cripes were did those boobs come from! Oh wait hang on, I remember something like this happening in the Winters ISBI (goes off to check) Yes I was right. I think they must have come from Magrat.

CC: I don’t care where they came from.  I will have no trouble getting a man with these beauties.

Screenshot-21

Here she is as a Young adult. It took me a long time to find an outfit that suited her.  Her new trait is flirty and LTW is Heartbreaker.

She will be added to the download list aswell.  For those who don’t like using the unstable trait.  Feel free to change it to Insane.  I will also list her original traits on the download page for anyone who wants them.

Screenshot-24

OK time to kick out some spares.

CC: I’m going to miss this place.

Screenshot-27 Screenshot-28 Screenshot-29

Buy guys, go make some babies and Weetabix get that arm looked at.  Although I probably didn’t need to tell CC because I got these soon after she moved out.

CC Pregnant CC go steady CC move in with Doug

 

Guess those boobs helped after all.

Screenshot-30

Seriously there is a bathroom right there. (first door you can see)

Screenshot-34

Ready Brek is always dancing and is getting quite good.

Ready Brek: Grandpa says the ladies like a guy who can move.

You probably shouldn’t be talking to him about things like that. O_o

Screenshot-41

This made me laugh, Magrat came home from work and decided she wanted the hat and mask with every outfit.  It looked so silly and but strangly suited her traits so I let her keep it.

Screenshot-44

Magrat wanted to make out with Melon before work and Melon is not one to say no to that! 😉

They even got this cute little moodlet afterwards

Second Gear

And that just about wraps up Generation 3.  Next time the triplets grow up and Lucky takes over as Torch Holder.

And the Winner Is….

I am working on the next chapter but before that I can officially annouce the winner of the poll and the Generation 4 torch holder.

Firstly, thanks to everyone who voted.  I got a huge response this time. 😀

OK, drum roll.

The winner with a massive 57% of the vote is Lucky Charms.  This result is totally unexpected to me.  I had expected one of the boys to win.  Weetabix was the fav of the boys coming in second with 24%.

Lucky

 

I am happy with this result. Quite relived if it was a girl that one it wasn’t Cookie Crisp. She is pretty but that unstable trait is a huge pain in the butt.

So yeah, Lucky Charms will be leading us into Generation 4.  As I said in an earlier chapter.  24 HourSpar Daye will be the spouse.  I had wanted to do a same sex couple so this pleases me.

I don’t think I mentioned it before but I am trying to do as many different spouse types as possible.  So far I have had.

Tobias – Made by me, same career (sort of!) 😀

Nolan – A propriator

Magrat – Another writer’s sim, A witch.

OK I need to stop now as I am rambling.

A Look at the New House in Lucky Palms

As promised here is a closer look at the new house in Lucky Palms.  I have finally finished it.  Had to wait for them to earn a bit more money. It is really hard to resist not cheating.

To start with here is the front of the house as it looks now.  I personally think it is an improvement on the original EA premade house that it was.

And just to be thorough here is the back.

Rear of House

OK lets have a look inside.  I will start with the downstairs where we have a nice entrance way and mini study area. The corridor behind Lucky leads to bedrooms, bathrooms and a smaller living area. We will look at those later.

Entrance

 

The entrance area leads directly into the open plan kitchen, dinning and living areas.

In a little nook next to the kitchen is a small area for the pets.

 

Kitchen & Diner

 

The living area is designed to give separate areas for tv/video games and reading.  As you can guess they rarely use it as I planned them to!

 

Reception Area

 

Down the hallway I mentioned earlier is a couple of bedrooms.  The first one is Lucky and CC’s bedroom.  Since CC is the eldest it is decked out in her fav colour.  Cute isn’t it.

 

Girls Bedroom

 

Across from the girl’s room is Tobias’ room.  He rarely uses it as he is quite often in the rocking chairs!

 

Tobias Bedroom

 

Further down the hallway is the nursery.  Tobias is the only one who comes in here currently.

 

Nursery

 

Turn a corner and the hallway opens out into this little area currently used as a sitting area.  The elders love it. 😀  The door at the end opens onto a small balcony with stairs leading down to the back garden.

 

Relaxing Area

 

Upstairs we have the master bedroom which is currently Melon and Magrat’s room.

Complete with ensuite.

Elsewhere upstairs we have Maya and Nolan’s room.

The boys room (can you tell I ran out of money here!) There is also another bedroom up here but that is empty as like I said funds ran out.

Inbetween the bedrooms is this bathroom.  I have not shown the downstairs bathrooms (there are four of them) as they all look the same as this.

 

Upper bathroom

 

OK so that’s the inside done.  Outside we have some planted area at the front to the right hand side of the front door.  This is where Seymour now resides.

Seymour: Come on, take a bite.

 

Front garden

 

To the other side of the front door is this area.  I made it look nicer, kind of.

Round to the side is this little patio type area that I have plans for.

 

Side Patio

 

This leads directly to the back patio.

Next to that is a small area where I have put Jacklyn’s grave (for now.)  The stairs lead into the basement

The basement looks like this at the moment.  It isn’t that different to similar ones I have seen in many a legacy.

Here is a closer image of the paintings.  You will notice I have added couple pictures inbetween.  I thought this was a nice touch.  I plan to add make this look a look less sparse!

OK back outside and to the thing that fills up most of the back garden. The pool. This was already here when I bought the house and I kept it in.  I added a waterfall and diving board.

The building to the back is the garage.  Yes, I got them a fixer upper car.  Gives them something to do.

The inside of the garage is pretty empty.  I forget who’s car that is.

I think that is about it.  I plan on saving a copy of this house.  If anyone would like the house let me know and I will add it to the download page.  I am quite proud of this one. 😀

There will be an actual chapter soon, it will be Melon’s last chapter as heir.  I am playing through the teen years as I want to get started on Generation 4 as soon as I can.

Melon is SO close to completing is LTW.  I hope he does it before his time as TH is up.
