Chapter 5.4 Automously Skilling Sims

OK so last time Susan gave birth to twins Daererys and Viserys, Lucky recieved a key to the city & Max did werewolfy stuff.

I shall start with the overdue addition of two new simselfs Sabrina and Julia.



Also a few notifications.  There has been a lot going on but I won’t include all of the popups.  Here is a slice of what is going in in the town.

Rham baby

There have been several babies born. I will send Susan out so you can see them all when they are older.

Nate & Holly

The simselfs are all finding love.  Nate bagged a Dewdrop after his previous old lady girlfriend died.


Julia & Sam


And this just made me laugh.  I think I got another popup shortly after saying they had been fighting! Come on girls play nice.


The new babies are very popular and are never short of attention.

Lucky: I wanted to feed that baby.

Susan: There is another one over there.

Lucky: He’s so needy, I want a moment with my precious little mother of dragons. ❤



Max, as it turns out is a great dad.  He adores his children.



Even if he can’t always work out what they want!



Magrat: Is this new?


Magrat: I like it.



Ok enough of the burritos.  Also it’s Koi’s birthday.

Max: *ignores whatever is cooking in the fryer because of birthdays.*



I am not sure if Koi is sneezing or blowing out candles in this shot.



This is unfortunately the only picture I have of Visery’s birthday.  As you can see he has Lucky’s blue hair.



Koi’s turn next.

Koi: I don’t want to get old.

Max: YAY a lifetime of cake!



Koi is actually a cute elder even if she aged up into a onesie.

Max: *is too cute for words*



Finally we have Daenerys or Dani for short.



Instant toddler, just add cake! XD



Studious little cuties. ❤



Their parents meanwhile….



Here we have the elders in their natural habitat.

Oh Koi I really need to give you a makeover.



Lucky finds the drums.  At least she’s out of the rocking chair.




Ah I sense more babies in your future.

Susan: *retching noises*

twits (6)


Max this is not what I meant by ‘get to know the family’

Max: So you can’t feel anything, not even rain?

Jacklyn: That’s the nature of being a ghost.  Want to find out what it’s like?

You leave him alone.

twits (4)


Baby incoming.

Kittystereo: *kids music*


twits (7)

A mere pregnancy does not stop Susan working on her LTW.  I am also making Susan listen to kids music via the portable music player hense the music note near her head.


twits (8)

Ooh automously skilling sims.  What is the world coming to! O.O


twits (9)

Koi: This bar could do with being better stocked.


twits (11)

Cute mother/daughter moment.


twits (19)

Ah TV how I love thee, such a better carer for the tots than the family are.


twits (21)

A torch holder’s work is never done.  Also another great maternity wear choice.

Susan: There is no point fixing a shower fully clothed.  I would only wet them up anyway.


twits (22)

Yikes that looks painful.

Dani: FEED ME!



twits (24)

Evilgnome: Oh great and powerful gnome satan. Accept this offering as a sign of our fealty.


twits (12)

Seymour is up to his old tricks again, luckily Lucky got spat out.


twits (26)

My that’s a lot of sims just randomly turning up.  PARTY TIME!


twits (28)

No Seymour do not eat the guests! 😡

24hourspar: *waits to be eaten*


twits (34)

Susan greats the guests like any good host should.

Susan: Thanks for coming even though you weren’t invited.

Rhamnus crashes every party they have.


twits (37)


He does provide the entertainment though along with Toan.

twits (38)

Meanwhile outside….


twits (42)

They grow up so fast.



twits (45)

Well that’s a poor turnout, where is everyone.


twits (46)

And here is Dani as a child.  New trait is not written in my notes.



twits (48)

Oh here they all are.  Zombies to the music.


twits (50)

Well not everyone, guess who’s in Susan & Max’s bed.


twits (52)

Yup, these two again.  Seriously guys, this is a kids birthday party.


twits (53)

It’s Viserys turn to grow up.


twits (57)

He is adorable when he’s not pulling a face like that.  Again I didn’t write the new trait down.


twits (59)

After most of the guests had left I found K-9 trying to follow someone home because he had follow in his queue.  I took pity on him and sent him home.



Well that was short lived, full moon happened so Max is a werewolf again.



Still cute baby bump feeling is cute.



Next on Seymour’s hit list is a zombie. Again he spat him out.



Susan: Labour is music to my ears.



Ghostly intermission



Susan: Is it over?

Sigh, she had quads.  That’s what I get for giving Max fertility treatment too.  Still at least all the children are born and Susan can get a job soon.

OK we have Rickon – Freindly & Insane, Ayra – Clumsy & Artistic, Bran – Disaplined & Brave and Eddard – Freindly & Heavy sleeper.  Ayra, Eddard and Bran and werewolfs!

The names are taken from members of House Stark




I shall leave you with the grandparents discovering their new grandchildren.

Oh and one more thing.  Susan got the Oh my ghost opportunity.  I am not sure how to use it at the moment.  Should I bring back one of the old heirs e.g Jacklyn?

Roaring Heights House Tour

Welcome to the long overdue house tour of the Roaring Heights house.  I held of on doing this as there were a few things I wasn’t happy with.  I have now sorted these and I am ready to show you the finished house.



Here it is from the front with a bit of my rare landscaping.  I am very pleased with how it looks and I love the lot I chose for it.



This is the rear view.  Not much going on back here.

rear deck


I did add this nice decking area as the back of the lot is slopped and difficult to build on.




There is a lawn area to the side of the house that will have a kids playground in when I get round to it.  All it his currently is a trampoline and Susan’s martial arts gear.



This is one of my new additions as I wasn’t happy with the front.

Ground Floor



Birds eye view of the ground floor

main living area


On one side of the partition wall is the dinning area. Simple but effective.



On the other side a lounge area complete with massive TV because why not! 😀

kitchen 1

The kitchen, I love this room.  There is a lot of orange but it still doesn’t seem to bright.  Please ignore the fryer queue.


kitchen 2

Other side of the kitchen with laundry area.


The Study which is also K-9’s sleeping area.

First Floor



Obligatory birds eye view.


Lucky and Koi’s room

Susan & max bedroom

Chapter 5.3 Baby Boom!

Last time Susan and Max went on honeymoon to China, Lucky became my portrait slave and Koi had a death wish.

Lets start on a happy note with these notifications

babies Baby sammy Rhamair baby

I will show you the babies when they are older.  So happy that everyone is starting to have babies. So many spouse potentials!


Lucky is still painting but this one seems promising.

Lucky: Please release me, let me go

Not until you get it right.



Hi Jacklyn!



Koi is stuck in an endless mopping cycle.  I will have to get Susan to fix that bath.



Koi: I think I deserve this after all that cleaning.

I added the deep fat fryer and ice cream machine again, such fun.




Looks like Susan and Max will have a memento from their honeymoon. 😉



Lucky: Rocking chair here I come!

Go ahead, you’ve earned it.



Lucky: This is a nice porch, when did we get this?

Oh not long ago, I added it on a whim.



Wow, Max is super hairy as a werewolf!



Lucky got a call about receiving an award from city hall for all her hard work so I bent the rules and let her go.

Charlotte: I don’t know what I’m doing here.

Rad: *polite applause* There is more people here than I expected.



Rad is now a fairy and Tam is a vampire.

Charlotte & that other woman: YAY I got a balloon! 😀




Frostee: I’m in a photo! 😀

Lucky got the key to the city.



Back at home Susan is rubbing Max’s belly. I love this interaction. it’s so cute. ❤

Also she has the same pregnancy wear as Magrat it seems.




Cute photo for the crypt. (which I need to alter at some point)



K-9 is getting old. 😦 I will have to get them a new pet.



K-9: My but tingles.



K-9: I request birthday cake now.



No reason for this, just liked her face.



Hi Max, what ‘cha doing?

Max: Just pondering what to do.



The joys of having a werewolf in the family.  This is only going to get worse if any of the kids inherit the wolf gene.



Susan: Max, I’m glad I found you.  I great news, I’m pregnant!

Max: I’m going to be a daddy! 😀



Max: You got anything to eat in there, i’m hungry.




I knew this would happen eventually, fryer queue!

Lucky: What have they done to my beautiful kitchen, I paid for this place you know.

twit (3)

Koi is still the family drinker.  If she is not drinking from the here she is at the bar


twit (4)

Bonehilda caught up on her cleaning so she is now teaching K-9 to sit.

K-9: I’m too old for this.



twit (5)


Max as a werewolf eating ice cream because I thought it was cute. ❤




twit (7)


Lucky: Bad wolf.


twit (8)

A trampoline was wished for, Koi is the first to find it.  Hold up, lets zoom in on that face.


twit (10)

Man that’s one creepy face.


twit (11)

Aw Koi, I was so close to getting a pic of you and bonehilda on the trampoline.

Koi: Don’t care, sleepy now.


twit (12)

Pregnancy does not stop Susan working on her LTW.

Susan: No but this will. *waters break*


twit (13)

Lucky: Hello? Oh no nothing much going on here.

Susan: Gee thanks mum.


twit (15)

Susan: ARGH! Baby incoming!

Lucky: Have fun dear, I need to pee.


twit (16)

So poor Susan had to drive herself to the hospital


twit (17)

Max followed on a bike (where’d that come from?) when he realised what was happening.

Max: Don’t worry honey, I’m coming.


twit (19)

Mixed gender twins! We have Daenerys (girl) & Viserys (boy).  Daenerys is disaplined and loves the heat and Viserys is a Genius and easily impressed.


Naming theme is Game of Thrones and they are named after these two, Viserys & Daenerys Targaryen.



twit (21)

Susan gets a well earned rest on arriving home.


twit (24)

Le sigh, we were doing so well. -5

Chapter 5.2 Taking a Trip



Since I took way too many pictures here’s another chapter for you! 😀

Remember last time I said I had a job interview? Well I got the job! It does mean I will be working full time though so less time for simming, but don’t fear I will still make time.  Also cute Pikachu gif is cute. ❤


One last thing before I start.  Chapter 5.4 of the Winterton Adoptacy is up.  It is in a written in a different style to usual so I hope you like it.

Basically I want to know if you would read a legacy/challenge written in this style. Since I am no good at forward planning when it comes to storywriting I plan to write a story around what the sims get up to, sort of like a challenge within a challenge.  Just an idea I had for future projects.

So last time Susan took over as the new TH, met and snagged Max Dewdrop while Lucky was chained to the easel trying to do portraits that meet my high standards.



Just thought you would all like to see a pic of Max in his swimwear. 😉


Max: But i’m a married man now.


Koi I swear I will cause you serious harm if you do not leave the cowplant alone! 😡


Seymour: *BURP*  Meat always tastes better after I tenderise it first.

Spit her out and go eat the paparazi or something.

Seymour: 😦



When Max moved in he already had a job at the hospital so I used his one action to send him to play chess.  I am hoping he will continue to skill on his own.

Max: Don’t hold you breath



Just Koi protesting, again.



Hi Susan, where you off to?

Susan: Honeymoon

Shouldn’t you wait for Max?

He’ll catch up once I start the car.



Please don’t break my game, please don’t break my game.



Susan: Why do I have to go shopping and adventuring alone.  This is supposed to be my honeymoon.

Just want to make a profit on this trip.  You’ll get to spend time with Max, I promise.



I have Susan buy the recipe books in case we need them for future generations.  I don’t plan to come back unless I absolutely have too.  She also brought the incense, training dummy and a pretty chest.



Max where are you going.

Max: Must see turtle.

He travelled to a field on the opposite side of the map just to watch a turtle.  I cheated a little and made him pick it up so I could sell it. 😀




Adventure time!



Susan: Ooh shiney




Susan: I hope there’s no bugs in here.



Max: Honey? What ‘cha doing? This is not what I had in mind when I said I wanted to spend the day with you. 😦



Susan: Sorry did you say something?



Max: I’m not happy.

I can see that.

Max: I want to play in the water too. *stamps feet and throws tantrum*

*rolls eyes*



Max: I think something bit me and not in a good place.

I do not want to know. O_o



Max: *changes into werewolf due to stress levels*


Screenshot-42 Screenshot-43

Aw such a cute werewolf.

Max: Awwwwoooooo! Grrr!




He then ran back to base camp like this.



Chopsticks! To eat a salad with?

Susan: I wanted to try it at least once. Just to say I used chopsticks in china. 😀



More adventuring!



Finally we get the reason we are here.  Part of Susan’s LTW is to master martial arts.  Why she felt the need to it half naked though.

Susan: It’s hot here. This way I keep cool.

I can safely say I would never work out dressed like that.  For one thing I don’t work out! XD



Level 1 complete



Susan: This is a lovely wall.

Found the tomb behind the shops, time to plunder it for treasure.



Susan: Argh get off!



Safely snuck past a water trap! Love this girl! ❤



See I said you would get to time together on this trip. 😉

Ok trip’s over, time to go home



Landscaped the front garden, recoloured the house and added large porch area.  Spot the 3 doctor who objects.



Lucky: What about this one.

Getting better, I’ll keep hold of it for now, let’s try Max’s portrait next then you can try Susan’s again.

Lucky: Will the torture never end.



Sink broke again.




K-9: I can fly! I mean woof.

Max: Wow this dog can jump!




I laughed at this.  I sat and watched to see if it was possible for the cowplant to eat bonehilda praying it wouldn’t mess up my game.



Seymour: *loud choking* Bone…stuck in…throat…



Seymour: *Spits out.*

I’m a little disappointed.



I fixed Max’s werewolf form.

Max: Ever seen a wolf play piano?

K-9: I have now.



YAY babies on the way! 😀

Susan: I’m glad one of us is happy with this situation.

😀 😀 😀



Much better, I approve.

Lucky: Good because I’m tired of this.




I found it really sweet that Magrat’s first haunting was with Melon.

Susan: I see dead people.

That’s it, that’s all the pictures I have.  I am finally caught up. Apart from a baby I have no idea what’s going to happen next time.
