Idiots do it their way


Chapter 7.1 …In With the New

Welcome to Generation 7! So exicted to be starting a new generation and doing the acrobat career.

Gambit: Plus I here you’ve picked out a hottie for me. ❤

Patience, we’ll get to that later.

Last time Storm grew up and grew out taking Mulberry with her, Rouge got a boyfriend and Rickon styled a lot.

Rickon: You worked me to the bone more like.

Rickon is getting close to that LTW so he is still working hard.

Rickon: I don’t mind the work but I do mind that most of my female clients keep hitting on me.

Richlady: That’s because you’re hot sweetie. ❤

Richlady: Wow, you are really good.  Fancy coming inside and getting out of those wet clothes. 😉

Rickon: I’d love to but I need to get back to the salon. Maybe another time.

Richlady: Pity. 😦

Back at the salon I got stuck in the tab camera.  This is what I had to look at.  Scary right?

Starla: Watch who you’re calling scary.

After reloading the game I noticed Rickon’s job performance bar was almost maxed out so I had Rickon offer Starla a makeover.

Starla: Are you sure about this?

Rickon: Of course. I have just the outfit for you.  You’ll look great I promise.

Starla: Getting my ex to style me. What could possibly go wrong?

Starla: You have GOT to be kidding me! What have you done! 😡

Rickon: This is what you deserve.  Also thanks for helping me achieve my LTW.

Plus I wanted to use some bits and bobs I rarely touch.

Here’s a closer look at what I did. It was really hard to make her look bad as she looked good with any hairstyle so I went for daft instead. 😀

Starla: At least the makeup matches my eyes. ❤

Back at home Max suffers from a badly broken neck. This was seriously creepy to look at in game.

Max: No one told me how stiff and uncomfortable you would get at this age.  Where’s that rocking chair.

What about your neck?

Max: Hold on. *loud cracking* Aah that’s better. 🙂


Jubilee: Are you sure you should be doing that which that huge puddle there dad?

Rickon: What puddle?

Jubilee: *rolls eyes*

Jubilee: That puddle. You ok dad?

Rickon *gets zapped* yep I’m fine sweetie.

Thank goodness he survived. Although a nice yellow ghost would have broken up all the grey.

Rickon: Gee thanks. Now if you don’t mind I’m going to take a shower.

Hang on a minute, who are you?

Efrain: Door was open. You know the dishwasher’s broken right?


He reminded me that I had failed to do this.  Hopefully this will keep unwanted guests out.

OK that’s everything finished up, time to throw a party for the quads birthday. Rickon makes the call while Susan cleans up. She looks like a butler in those gloves!

Susan: I guess I missed my calling.

This is my little party set up.  Just one thing missing, where are the guests?

Cyclops: They’re not here, just nana peeing herself.

Susan: You could have moved out the way.

Cyclops: You could have used that toilet behind us.

Rickon: I can’t see anything past my latest masterpiece.

This masterpiece is worth 2015 simoleons!

Rickon: I want to keep it.

OK. *puts on wall*

Rickon: 🙂 ❤

The party guests were all a no show so we carried on regardless.  So pleased I was able to get this shot. I think this is the best quad birthday pic I’ve taken.

Wolverine went first, he looks exactly the same.

Wolverine: I’m a work of art. ❤

Rouge: Cake. ❤

Rouge: *blows out candles*

Jubilee: Well that’s attractive.

Rouge: Tada!

She’s s pretty. ❤

Gambit is next up.

Gambit: *cheers loudly*

Rickon: *deafens Cyclops*

Gambit: What happened to my hair!

Don’t worry I’ll fix it.

Wolverine: Ha! Ha! Ha! you got the pigtails. XD

Jubilee: 😡

OK time for makeovers.

First is Jubilee. Her new trait is Workaholic and her LTW is Emperor of Evil.

Jubilee: I did tell you.

Wolverine is next. His new trait is Artistic and his LTW is Illustrious Author.  Such a shame I can’t keep him around.

Rouge is next. Her new trait is Absent minded and her LTW is World class gallery.

Finally our new TH Gambit.  Amazing what a decent hairstyle can do.  His new trait is Evil.

The first thing that happens after the birthdays.

Susan: I can see a white light.

Susan: I guess this is it for me.  Oh well it’s been a good innings.

The whole family turn up to see her off.

Shawna: What’s all the fuss about?

Susan: What a B*****, I never liked her.

Susan, language!

Death: Susan Mendoza, You’re coming with me.

Susan: Well if you insist.

Susan: Lets go then Grimmy.

Death: Please don’t call me that.

Shawna: *still not mourning*

Oh crap it begins.

Death: This is why I wear earplugs. 😀

Do you even have ears?

Death: You have no idea what’s under this hood.

The moodlet manager is passed from Rickon to Gambit and he sets about removing the mourning moodlet.  The only ones left with it are Max and Rickon because I felt they should mourn her being her husband and heir respectively.  Cyclops is also left mourning as are the pets.

RIP Susan Mendoza.  You were only 2 days over the end of your life bar at 86 days.

OK back to business.  Time for the spares to move out.  I wish I could keep them all around but that would make for a very crowded house.  They vanished from the lot after Jubilee made the call so I couldn’t get shots of them leaving.

It was the middle of the night when all the exictement was over.  Too late to visit the park and get a job (lighting would not have been great!). Instead I start him on his skills.  He already has athletic level 3 so he is learning handiness.  A very important skill for a TH.

Proof that Beast is still here and actually uses the cat tower.  Wonders will never cease!

Upstairs there is some inappropriate sniffing going on.

Shawna: Stop that tickles! XD

Cyclops: Dad aren’t you going to stop them.

Rickon. It’s ok, your granddad’s a werewolf.  You get used to it after a while.

Rickon: *licks plate*

Gambit: Dad there is a butt load of cake in the fridge.

Shawna tries to flirt with Rickon but he is having none of it.

Rickon: You do know my Mum just died.

Beast caught a turtle.  I kept it. She is now called Mystique. The last use of the X-men theme.

To finish off here’s Gambit in his private gym raising his athletic skill while listening to a cooking tabcast.  Next time we meet Gambit’s spouse.



Chapter 6.17 Out with the Old…

This will be the last chapter of generation 6.  Can’t believe another generation is finished but I am looking forward to doing the acrobat career again.  I was hoping to fit in the quads birthday in this chapter but I took too many photos whilst I was waiting for them to reach the end of the teen bar so I had to split it up.

Last time Rickon was out styling again and Susan and Max retired. Also Storm and Cyclops had birthdays and the game crashed.

I will kick things off with Cyclops’ makeover.  I was trying my best to bring out his evil trait but he is just too cute.  His new trait is Neat.

Cyclops: An important skill for a bad guy that is.  Don’t want to leave any evidence behind.

Since Storm’s LTW relates to the singer career I sent her to the park to get a job before I move her out.

Rickon is as always out styling sims.  He is at level 8 now I think so I am pushing him hard to try and reach level 10 before Gambit takes over.  First up is Courtney.

Courtney: My husband left me for a younger woman so I want you to make me over so he knows what he’s missing.

Rickon: I can do that.

Courtney: Wow! Great job! I look hot. ❤

Rickon: Do you have to do that?

Courtney: Just showing my appreciation. ❤

Next up is Sonoko.

Sonoko: I need a dress for a party tonight. I hear you’re the man to ask.

Rickon: You heard right.  Nice shoes.  Love the colour.

Sonoko: Thanks ❤

Sonoko: This dress is amazing, thanks.  It’s looks almost as good as you do. ❤

Rickon: I, er, have another client to get to.  Glad you like it, bye. *runs away, fast*

Back at home Storm practices guitar for the last time. It’s time for her to move out.

Storm: You sure I can’t change your mind.  I would make cute babies.

Sorry but the readers have spoken.  Don’t forget you will have a shot as a potential spouse in my DITFT legacy.

Storm: True. OK time to go then.

She will be added to the download page at some point.

So Storm moves out to live her life in story progression.  Mulberry goes with her to free up space in the house.  Bye girls! Go forth and make cute babies please.

Rickon is still out and about.  He has a lot of work to do to fulfil his LTW.  This is Becky Lake his next client.

Becky: I need a new look, I haven’t changed my style since college.

Rickon: It definately shows, but don’t worry I’ll soon get you sorted.

Becky: I hope so. ; )

Rickon: How about this? I think you look so much better.

Becky: It’s ok but you’re cute so I’ll keep it. ❤

Rickon: *blushes*

Wolverine: This is so unfair, I haven’t done anything wrong. *sulks*

He got put in a time out for bad grades.

Wolverine: You forget to do homework a couple of times, get a D and suddenly you’re failing.

I have nothing to say to that.

Meanwhile at the Salon.

Rickon: I want to talk to Anya but she is in the way.

This gif could represent every time I play sims!! XD

I noticed Rouge hadn’t come home after school. I found her sleeping in the little chapel at the graveyard.

Cyclops had his first transformation into a werewolf.

Cyclops: Cool but why is my hair not?

His hair colour changed to brown, got to fix that.

I got sidetracked and forgot about Rouge.  When she did arrive home Rickon caught her.

Rickon: You are in big trouble young lady!

Gambit: I’ll just sneak past while dad is busy.

Rouge got put in a time out for bad grades and grounded for staying out after curfew. Gambit got away with not being punished.

Cyclops goes to his grandpa for werewolf advice. (insert werewolf joke here). They end up playing tag but the lighting was too poor for photos.

Whilst in the basement, Cyclops met the family ghosts and experienced the battle for the rocking chairs.

Cyclops: Nope, that is too many ghosts for me to cope with. Get rid of them please.

I am pondering moving the ghosts to a separate lot. They are causing some issues in the house.

Rickon’s latest artwork.  It’s cute. ❤

Max is proving to be an entertaining elder.  Here he is rocking out on the guitar.  This naturally draws in the idiots who stand there watching as their needs drop.

A rare moment of Susan and Max being civil.  Their relationship has plummeted and I doubt they have enough time left to fix it.

The girls find Storm’s old room.

Rouge: Zzzzzzz

Jubilee: Well that’s interesting, there are two paths in the criminal career.  Which one shall I choose.

You already know what you want to do then? I don’t see a LTW in your panel.

Jubilee: We both know it’s inevitable.

Rickon fixes the computer, again.  Luckily he doesn’t die.

Max: Hello? A date?! I’m not sure I should.

You do know your wife is behind you.

Max: *leaves for date*

Hey I didn’t say you could go on the date! Get back here! (this really happened. I clicked on the cross but he went anyway.  He soon regretted it though)

Max: NO! I make my own decisions!

Starla: Hi! Ready for our date. ❤

Max: OK next time I’ll listen to you. *returns home*

Starla: Rude.

Rickon: If it’s a new look you want I have a new dress I’ve been working on.

Woman(Forgot her name): Wow sounds great, I’ll try it.

Woman: It’s great!

Rickon: Why do they keep doing that.

Gambit: I think we need a new bus driver.  This one has trouble parking.

Driver: Nonsense *hic* I am parked per- *hic* perfectly straight.

Gambit: Help, I’m to young and pretty to die

Storm went to a friends house after school.  I followed her.  Turns out her new friend is Chance Moss. They seemed to get along ok.

Make that great.  I stepped in after a lot of flirting and they are now in a steady relationship.  I hope they stay together in story progression.

Rickon has been very busy and is now at level 9. I accidentally deleted the notification pic, oops.  His latest client is Lanya, she is married to Viserys.

She got a hair colour change as well as an outfit update.  Just to add a bit of variety to the town.

Lanya: I think I can live with this.

Max finds the gym and tries out the martial arts dummy.

Max: This isn’t so hard.

Gambit finds the pool.  He is now at level 3 in the Athletics skill.  That gives him a nice head start, good job!

Gambit: I so excited to get started on my career.

This seems like a good place to end generation 6.  After many MANY tries I got a painting of Shawna that was ok.  Still a little dark but I just got fed up trying.

The first chapter of Generation 7 will be coming very soon.  I just have a few more photos to get to complete the chapter.  Watch this space!

Chapter 6.16 Didn’t we do this already?

Last time skilling was done, Mulberry became a YA again and toddler training was completed.

Rickon: Ow

Rickon failed at fixing the computer.  Luckily he is still with us.

Gambit: Not fair, when is it my turn.

Not much longer now, just be patient.

Rickon heads off to work for the first time since the move.

Rickon: Something’s wrong, I can see far too much.

Hang on…

There, that better?

Rickon: Much, thank you. 🙂

Rickon’s first client is Brandon Woods.

Brandon: This EA chosen outfit is awful, please say you can fix it.

Rickon: I will have you looking stylish in no time.

Rickon: There, I even ripped holes in the jeans.  I read that’s an in look at the moment.

Brandon: Thanks. I love it. ❤

The next client lives in this cool house.

Rickon: This place is awesome! Why can’t I live here?

Because you have a better one.

When you’re quite finished you have a job to do, remember?

Rickon: On it.

Rickon: I can see why you called.  Those trousers have got to go.

Paul: I actually like my trousers thank you.  It’s my hair I want you to fix.  I want you to make me look younger.

Rickon: If you insist on keeping the outfit then this is the best I can do.

Paul: It’s awesome! Thanks ❤

The baby on the fountain is Paul’s grandson Joshiah btw.

Back at home a queue formed to feed Cyclops.  Mulberry won.

With his home visits done I send Rickon to the salon.  First to be forced into a makeover is Danielle Pratt.

Danielle: Well if you’re sure I need it.

Lanya: I’m out of here before he gets me too.

Rickon: There that’s better.  I think you look great.

Danielle: *blushes* you do? thank you.

Rickon’s next victim is Yolanda Lemon.

Yolanda: What have you done to me! 😡

Rickon: There is no pleasing some people.

That pattern will be used on every stylised sim from now on.

At home Mulberry is still hogging Cyclops.

Cyclops: I has bath. ❤ I like bath. 😀

I realise Storm didn’t come home after school.  I find her outside the hospital doing her homework.

Storm: Much more peaceful here than at home.

Jubilee: Who keeps letting these reporters in? Want me to sort him out?

Shawna: I’ll deal with it.

*reset sim* I think they need a better gate.

Shawna: I can’t get to the reporter guy, Rouge is in the way.

Rouge: So what would you have done to him?

Jubilee: I can’t say much with Shawna and the reporter right there but lets just say it wouldn’t be pretty

Rouge: Cool!


Rickon is still at the salon.  His latest victim client is Seth Monroe

Rickon: Overall you don’t have a bad look but it could be better with a couple of tweeks.

Seth: OK go ahead.

Rickon: You look great, you will be fighting off the ladies in this.

Seth: I like the sound of that, thanks mate.

Using a couple of newly found tools to bypass the launcher when adding sims3pack CC to the game I added a family I had been trying to add to the game for absolutely ages.  From L-R say hello to Chance, Benito, Riddle, Cocaine, Anya and Story Moss.  They are of course from the totally awesome Rolling Stone Gathers No Moss by StyxLady

I sent Rickon to say hi on his way home from the salon. He didn’t stay long as his needs were very low.  They did heartfart all over the front garden though.

Wolverine went all the over to the little BBQ kitchen to prepare hotdogs.

Only to bring them all the way back to the main house to nuke them.  Maybe I should put a second microwave out there.

Shaggydog: Excuse me, birthday underway here.

Shaggydog is becoming an elder.

Just our future TH building his athletic skill.  I think he is at level 2 now.

Gambit: The soundwaves make my legs look broken.

Elsewhere I let Susan retire.  She is getting near the end of her lifebar and has earned a rest.

Susan: *celebrates politely* I don’t have to contribute to the household anymore! Son! meet your new drain on resources.

Wow time for Storm’s birthday already. Also Cyclops is becoming a child

The whole family came to cheer them on.

Storm: Can we get on this, I’m hungry.

Rouge: When does she leave? I’m tired of her whinging.

Storm: Here’s what you could have had as heir.

Shawna: Please put some clothes on Gambit.

Gambit:*Extreme birthday cheering*

Here she is as a YA. Her new trait is Lucky (locked in) and her LTW is Vocal Legend.

Cyclops is next.

Gambit: YAY little bro! 😀

Cyclops: Look I grow up with muscles.

Storm: Well time to split

Oh how I loved that game ❤

Elsewhere Max also retired.

Max: Probably for the best.  The patients didn’t really feel that confident with a werewolf treating them.

At this point I thought ‘I should really save now’.  The game however had other ideas, it froze then crashed.

Right let’s try that again.  I had last saved just after adding the Moss family.  First Shaggydog ages up, again.

Shaggydog: Didn’t this happen already? Also what is this weird green diamond thing floating above my head?

Susan retires for a second time.

Susan: Just point me in the direction of the rocking chair and I’ll be happy.

At the hospital Max’s job proves too stressful plus he has an empty energy bar.  He leaves work to transform.

Max: Hi boss! I would like to retire please. Yes I know I’m just outside, I didn’t want to come back in.

Max: Yay! I don’t have to clean this confetti up! 😀

Birthday time again.  Isn’t this a cute pic of mother and son. ❤

Storm shows up for her birthday too.

Cyclops: I no wanna share.

Cyclops: No sparkles in my birthday picture, I approve.

Storm: Whee! I love sparkles ❤

I liked the outfit she grew up in so I let her keep it. I just recoloured it.  Her new trait this time is Hates the Outdoors (locked in) and her LTW is Vocal Legend.

I haven’t given Cyclops his makeover yet so you will see that next time.  His new trait is neat which might be useful around the house.

Cyclops: Just because I’m the son of a maid doesn’t mean I’m going to clean up after everyone.

I think this is a good place to end it.  I have after all ran out of pictures.  Next time the Quads will be growing up and Gambit will take the reins.  So exicted to be starting a new generation!
