Chapter 4.8 Playing with Life and Death

Hey there! I would have got this out sooner but it was my birthday last week so I postponed this. I would just like to say thank you to everyone who has agreed for their sims/simselves to added to the town.  I am so looking forward to the move and setting it up.

Anyway last time the youngest girls grew up, Coco was taken from us 😥 and Lucky nearly got eaten by Seymour.

We begin this time with someone actually using the nice little reading nook I created in the study.

 

gen 4 ch 8 (3)

Magrat: Quiet, they’ll hear you.

Who?

gen 4 ch 8 (4)

Ha ha it’s almost like a conga! 😀 Look at their cute little outfits. ❤ Of course Romana has to remind me that I forgot to put glasses with her formal wear.

gen 4 ch 8 (6)

Magrat: Damn it, how did they find me.

That’s the power of the bedtime story.

Susan: Aw Rory, she was gonna read to me first.

Romana: But I found her first.

Rory: Well I’m the eldest so there 😛

gen 4 ch 8 (8)

No one is safe when kids are tired.

Lucky: Don’t worry I got this. 😀

gen 4 ch 8 (9)

*Sigh* oh Rory. -5

Things got better the next time Magrat went to work.  I knew she was doing well but I hadn’t checked her level recently.  Imagine my surprise when this popped up.

Magrat lvl 10 Magrat LTW finished

gen 4 ch 8 (11)

 

Well done Magrat, first non controllable sim to achieve their LTW.  It helped that she was always working out due to her athletic trait. +25

gen 4 ch 8 (15)

These birthdays kind of sneak up on you don’t they.  It’s Lucky’s adult birthday and Rory’s teen one.

Lucky looked the same I just gave her a little mini makeover to suit an older woman.

Rory has an interesting look but he is ok.  His new trait is proper so I tried to incorporate that into his look while keeping a slight eccentric look to him.

Screenshot

Lucky is still out and about trying to solve as many cases as she can before I relinquish control.  I laughed when this guy got struck by lighting and Lucky just didn’t care at all.  Everyone else turned to watch but not Lucky, nothing stops her solving a case.

Screenshot-7

These two have taken to dancing together a lot.  They are getting rather good.

Screenshot-14

Oh Seymour, not again.

Romana: OMG I’ve never seen cake this big!

Screenshot-16

Seymour: Omnomnom

Screenshot-17

Seymour how could you do that to a child.  Spit her out this instant. 😡

Screenshot-18

Thank you.  (I am so glad the cow plant doesn’t eat children)

Romana: Ew cow plant slobber

Later that same day…

Screenshot-21 Screenshot-23 Screenshot-25

 

He did spit the maid out so all was well.

Screenshot-26

 

I may have forgotten I downloaded this and wanted to try it out.  It is called the Door of Life and Death for those who don’t know.  It is part of the Grim’s Ghastly Manor set on the store.  It has some options I want to try out plus I heard it attracts Zombies and Paparazzi.

*insert evil laugh here*

This is a little spam of Susan flexing her insane trait, enjoy

Screenshot-31 Screenshot-32 Screenshot-34 Screenshot-35 Screenshot-36 Screenshot-37

 

End Spam

Screenshot-38

What could be better than playing chess on your own? Playing with the ghost of a legacy founder of course.  Hi Jacklyn!

Screenshot-43

He he he. I love this door already.  It has claimed it’s first victim, a paparazzi who’s name escapes me and my notes.

Melon: Would you look at that a door to nowhere.

I know It will look better when I have more time.

Screenshot-28

And finally Lucky & Koi had another romantic selfie as I lost the first one.  I like this one better though.  Koi’s face is so funny! XD

That’s it I’m afraid, no more pictures. 😦

In a desperate attempt to win your votes Martha helps out with her younger sisters.

mad (4)

While Rory feeds Handles.  Doesn’t he look cute on his little stool. ❤

mad (6)

Coco has maxed out his life bar (I think it was a boy :/) and might not be with us much longer so Lucky is giving him some extra attention

mad (7)

Martha: *fake fear* Oh a zombie, I’m like so scared.

mad (8)

Zombie: brains…

Martha: *squeal* I love this part

mad (9)

Zombie: Raarrr! Brains!

Martha *imitates*

mad (10)

Martha: Oh that was a riot! Do it again! 😀

Lucky: Happy birthday to you! Happy birthday to you! 

Romana: Dishwasher is broken

Here she is after her makeover, Her new trait is Computer Whiz so I have tried to go for a sort of geeky look.

Screenshot-58

Next up is Susan.  Oh Melon no don’t copy your father.

Screenshot-61

Susan: *birthday cross-eyes*

Screenshot-64

Wow that’s bad styling.

toad (1)

This is her now, much better.  Her new trait is Insane.  Since she is Athletic I have tried to give her a sporty look.  I think it works.  I also added blue tips to her hair which I like.

toad (4)

I converted Maya & Nolan’s old room into the girls bedroom and used their child actions to send them to their new beds.

Screenshot-65

Oh Romana don’t do that, you were potty trained. -5

toad (12)

Coco: Meow, Meow.

Melon: What’s up Coco, is it your birthday too?

toad (14)

Melon: *sobs* no it can’t be happening.

K-9: *Whimpers*

Death: Clear the way, I haven’t got all day you know.

Melon: NO not Coco! It’s too soon! 😥

Death: Who’s a good boy?

Screenshot-71

Death: Up, up up to the heavyside layer

Bad Seymour! 😡

toad (8)

*deep breaths* Oh thank goodness, when this happened in game I thought it was game over.  I have never been so glad to see Seymour spit a sim out.

toad (9)

These to are inseparable.  Whenever Rory has low fun motive he seeks K-9 out.

toad (10)

Hey someone found the other easel. 😀

toad (18)

Martha found the instruments and took a liking to this one

toad (20)

I realised I hadn’t done a potrait of Koi so I cheated and had Melon do it.  Thank you Melon ❤ +5

Melon got pranked again but this isn’t the best part.

Magrat's prank

When looking to see who had done it I was surprised to find Magrat had this moodlet. 😀

toad (24)

Lucky was out working on another case so she visited All Bran who lived nearby.

toad (25)

This is his son, Ricky who has fallen foul to EA styling. Poor kid.

Chapter 4.6 See My Cake

Hi, hope everyone enjoyed the Easter bank holidays.  Last time Rory became a child, Susan & Romana were born and Ready Brek thought his parents old bedroom was the perfect place to woohoo with his wife.

We start this time with Romana being adorable in the walker while teaching herself to walk.

Screenshot-4

Romana: I favourite now?

We’ll see.

Screenshot-6

I finally got round to redecorating Tobias’ old room.  Much more fitting for Melon & Magrat.

Magrat: These paintings please me.

I’m not surprised, they are food related after all.

Screenshot-13

Lucky meanwhile is completing another case involving this woman, Zahra Diwan.

Screenshot-17

Lucky: 7 down, 28 more to go.

I’m not sure you’ll do that in time.

Screenshot-20

 

Seymour: See my cake!

Maid: Oh it’s so big!

Screenshot-31

Birthday time! Martha is becoming a teenager

Screenshot-37

Just a small family affair this time.

Screenshot-39

Koi: Is that meant to happen?

Martha: Whoosh!

Screenshot-42

Before…

Screenshot-48

After, her new trait is Unflirty.

Screenshot-50

K-9: *howl* (my birthday too)

Screenshot-54

He’s so fluffy! 😀

Screenshot-58

I give him a collar in TARDIS blue. 😀 (or as close as I could get)

Screenshot-59

LOL poor Martha not been a teen one day and already roped into a bedtime story. At least she is reading him an age appropriate book

Screenshot-61

Aw, Romana has a sad. 😦

Screenshot-62

 

Lucky: OK sweetie, can you say Vashta Nerada?

Screenshot-64

 

Melon: There we go honey, grandpa’s got you.

 

Screenshot-65

 

Oh Melon not on the child. -5

Romana: Grandpa go potty

Screenshot-68

Just for cuteness ❤

Screenshot-71

Why do I make these people nice rooms with nice beds if they are just going to sleep on the floor.

twits (2)

Koi cooks and doesn’t burn it. Good girl. 🙂

twits (10)

 

Rory: Come on, get the piggy.

Wow that dog can jump!

twits (12)

 

Lucky: *sneaky, snoopy*

We are looking for clues at the gym.

twits (13)

I spot a protest going on at city hall.  Something about computers

Jogger: Don’t mind me, just passing through.

twits (16)

Lucky needs to speak to the white haired woman, Volanda Shaw but her brother is busy flirting with her.

twits (18)twits (20)

Preparing for Generation 5

I have decided that when the next heir takes over the family will be moving to a new town. However, I plan to delete most of the current residents and repopulate it. My plan is to use sims of my own making but I would like to add sims from other legacies and maybe simselves.
I will be visiting my favourite sites in search of sims to use but if anyone has any sims that they would like to be added to the new town, please comment below. I will be willing to accept more than one sim per person so if you have a favourite couple, siblings etc that is fine.
Please note I only plan to have one household reserved for any simselves so it’s first come, first served I’m afraid.
I already have a town in mind and I am super excited about doing this, usually I am to lazy to customise the town but since this generation will mark the halfway point it warrants something special.
