Somehow the upgrade of the house has made gameplay more fun for me. I was getting sick of the hovel that they were living in..
For some reason the school bus doesn’t come for them, so I send them to school on free, magical bikes.
Lucie: Your doll is so lame, bro. Look at mine.
Ace: *doesn’t care*
Lucie: LOOK AT IT.
Thankfully, she is interrupted by the babysitter.
Tim: Yes, let daddy play with you since your mom does nothing but game all day.
Charles: To improve your performance, please interview someone and—
Tim: Ok boss, what is your favorite color?
Did you know that the todds always pick the highest relationship sim for their birthday?
Tim: Haha.. After all I did…
Zander rolled the absent minded trait.
Lucie grew up before she could blow the candles. She’s also absent minded o_O.
It looks like Zander takes after his Moore’s obsession.
Unlike Spacey and Bumble, I think these twins will be very close.
Their new bedroom.
Veri: Finally, no more babies!
I love the gaming career shirts xD.
I never thought I’d get a burglar alarm this generation. Before the gift there was literally nothing to rob from them lol.
Lucie: Excuse me, who are you?
Maria: You don’t know? I’m Moore’s girlfriend.
Lucie: What?! No you’re not. Leave my bro alone.
(and no she’s not his gf, just a classmate)
It’s Bumble and Spacey’s birthday.
Note the rude blonde at the back.
Maria: His siblings are so weird. Why does that 8 year old have purple highlights?
Maria: Oh wow—he’s hot now, let me make a good impression by joining in.
Bumble is now an equestrian.
Spacey: My turn!
Spacey rolled the family oriented trait.
Veri: I can’t believe that girl took my seat.
Bumble: I don’t even care about birthdays, I just want to paint all day.
There’s also a new addition to the family, Snaggles Orangee.
Veri: Oh my god. Are you guys serious??
Bumble: Ughh, my spirit is.. wanning. This mortal body cannot contain my artistic prowess.
Tim: BAD DOG!
The moment of truth…
These two are real teens, unlike Moore who is a grandpa is disguise.
I could finally buy her a bar for the mixologist challenge.
Veri: It tastes like crap. But I can just sell it by saying it contains health herbs.
Spacey: Go ahead and sleep in my bed, I’ll sleep in your brand new one.
Bumble: In 1982, a unknown artist made his debut by the painting of Mon—
Lucie: Can you go away? I don’t want to hear this.
I think Spacey is Tim’s favorite. He keeps talking to her.
Tim: Don’t you think she looks just like me?
Bumble: Can you guys get out please? I can’t sleep with your stupid noises.
You know, today is a special day. It’s Veri and Tim’s birthday…
It’s too soon ;_;
Veri decided to spend the day gaming with her family.
You’ve come so far, Tim.
Bumble continued playing even after everyone left.
Not much difference at all!
Veri’s turn ;_;
Veri: I’m ready 😀
Veri: How could they eat without me on MY birthday?
Wylie invited her over only to play tag.
Veri: Arghh… Give me a break, I’m middle aged now. If it wasn’t for the 75k do you think I would…*pants*
Not sure why, but I have this strange weakness for male sims who paint.
Veri: I’m gonna build an ice house and live here, away from my husband and screaming children.
Tim got another promotion 🙂
Veri: What tax-economic alliance do llamas belong to?
Tim: Hell yeah! I’m trivia king!
Veri: I smell something burning. Wait… what??
Veri: Is that a fire?! I can’t even bear to hear the burning… the ground is wood omg.
Girl, the fire is spreading DO YOUR JOB.
Bumble: Mama! Help, I’m scared.
Spacey: I’ll just stay out here in the snow where nothing can hurt me.
Bumble could learn a thing or two from his sister.
YOUR HEAD IS ON FIRE. WAKE UP.
I was really freaking out, the firewoman wasn’t helping at all. Veri’s head was on fire. Tim was at work.
It was so suspenseful and I was wondering if this legacy will end before it really begins, and then my game crashed.
It probably exploded in cinders along with Veri’s brain.
R E L O A D
This time, Veri didn’t cook and instead woohooed with her husband.
Veri: No Chad, I’m not interested in dinner at Llama Chef.
It was time for twins to age up. Regretfully, between the aliens and the fire I didn’t get to take many shots of them.
Bumble felt the need to interrupt his sister’s birthday by growing up first. He rolled the daredevil trait.
Bumble: I’m cool with teh highlights heh.
He is the only child so far to inherit Veri’s red hair, so I’m pretty fond of him.
Spacey in her favorite lime green. She rolled the kleptomaniac trait.
She looks somewhat creepy to me, no?
Bumble’s snowman is a reflection of his inner self.
Moore: Excuse me sister, I was here to ask for a bedtime story first.
Spacey: Whatever, I’m not wuss like you that I can’t sleep without a bedtime story.
I wish the children would
Spacey: I’ve been dreaming about this massive fire in our house. It seemed so real. I wish it would actually happen.
Veri: If you’re going to live in this house, you must remember that comics are sacred.
Tim: Excuse me Sir, I’d like to ask you about the recent break out of the llama flu.
Rehman: Zzzzzz— Huh I’m sorry, what did you say? I was in the operating room overnight.
Stop harassing the poor doc, Tim.
Tim & Spacey: Oh my god!
Veri: Stop screaming for no reason and let me wash the dishes in peace.
Spacey: You’re in labour!
Veri: What are you talkin—oh crap you’re right!
Bumble: *Peaceful snoring*
Finally, here are the last twins.
I don’t know about you, but I was getting pretty frustrated by the constant need for pregnancy. Now we can get to the good stuff.
Lucie Orangee – Brave, adventurous
Zander Orangee – Excitable, eccentric
That’s a big bonus considering she hadn’t left for work even once… Maybe Veri’s boss is Chad?
I wonder if they’re identical twins?
The Orangees went out for dinner.
Of course, Spacey is sitting alone. Moore and Bumble get along very well and nobody really talks to Spacey at home xD.
Veri: What the hell? Isn’t my husband the one you guys want?
Pinterdmaxan: There’s been a change in plans. We will continue to see you in the near future.
Bumble: Are you the one who destroyed my army?
Spacey: Huh? Oh I tripped.
Bumble: Well you better not trip again. Or else, I’ll take your limp body and wrap it in snow to make a new one.
Spacey: Oh shit. I’d better make him a new one as an apology before he makes me disappear.
Bumble: Can’t you do anything about this mess?
Moore: I’m already doing all I can ):
The first time Tim ever exercised and the 1000th time Moore is playing king.
Moore: Today is special cuz it’s my birthday!
Oh right. I totally forgot.
He also rolled the hot-headed trait.
His face is… interesting. I don’t know who he really takes after.
Veri: Just leave me alone already…
Is this revenge for him flirting with your wife?
He wrote a negative article on him xD
Tim and Moore pretty much did all the parenting this time around.
Tim is a good dad.
I had Tim check the mailbox for the first time ever and guess what
He gave them a fountain the size of their house for their wedding… and it’s worth $75,000. SEVENTY FIVE THOUSAND SIMOLEONS.
And the Orangees are stupid, but not stupid enough to keep a gigantic useless fountain in their backyard worth 75k. So they sold it.
Tim & Veri: So can we quit our job now?
No. You guys need a life.
I should erect a statue for Wylie, seriously.
The Orangee house gets an upgrade.
They even get a freaking car.
((I have a mod that reorganizes buymode, so some prices are different from the vanilla game. Cars only cost a few thousand for me.))
Entrance and gaming area.
Veri + Tim’s room. They have a nice walk in closet now, and a mini fridge for late night snacks.
Also connected to balcony.
Moore’s room. Pretty unimpressive because I imagine him to be a simple, athletic, normal dude who has a secret crush on a pop-star. His room is connected to the 2nd balcony.
Bumble + Spacey’s room.
It’s 75k but it’s not like they’re millions, so the twins still share.
Spacey also gets a violin to satisfy her virtuoso needs.
Revamped kitchen and dining.
And of course I don’t forget the man who made all of this possible.
Wylie the savior
I decided to save him in stasis (nraas sp) and I’m planning on marrying off one of their daughters to him :). Bc I love this guy now.
I will never forget this kindness, Wylie.
It’s actually a home now.
Moore: My cringey parents still haven’t changed though. *barfs*
Everyone loves the mini fridge so much that they stopped cooking all together.
Veri even gets a promotion.
Veri: Hmph, that violin is all she does now. Doesn’t even welcome her mother home.
The house is so serene at night.
Continue reading 1.4
Veri: You shouldn’t be filming this.
Veri: Here, I fixed your stereo.
Willard: Oh wow thanks, here’s $200.
Veri: Only $200? Do you know how long I spent on your stupid music box? Don’t think I’ll forget about this.
Willard being cheap made her so mad her water broke.
Tim: Omg, it’s a fountain!
Moore: What about me? I’m hungry!
Veri: Quiet! Don’t you see I’m in pain?!
And it’s twins. Veri named the girl Spacey and the boy Bumble.
The house is hectic. Veri tries to teach Moore to walk last minute but she doesn’t make it ): . Moore gained the athletic trait.
Bumble Orangee – Artistic, Light Sleeper
Spacey Orangee – Virtuoso, Heavy Sleeper
I like how Bumble chose the violet bed because even if it’s further from the door (his favorite color).
Moore: I am now the ruler of this house.
Tim had a makeover. Nerd parted hair and chick pink glasses.
The aliens love his new look.
Xorpoth: I am not like my brother. You will have my spawn.
Tim: Yeah whatever dude… this is all getting old.
Xorpoth: I will be back.
Moore: Damn it, dad!
Btw, Tim’s book writing is taking forever. I didn’t know it took this long to write a book, I took out my fast writing mod and Tim is still writing the same book as when he just moved in.
Tim: $hit. Why did I marry into this family. If I kept doing my party dancing I could’ve married some rich woman with mountains of simoleons. Now all I have are mountains of kids.
Moore got the cheapest bed possible. He is constantly woken by his younger siblings too 😦
Moore: I shouldn’t be spending my childhood like this…
Oh look who’s here.
Xorpoth: I came to see the product of my work. Where is the black haired human?
Veri: What’s wrong with you guys? I already told your dad we have nothing to do with you!
Xorpoth: Didn’t he uhh… gain weight?
Veri: Tim has always been skinny, and he still is! Don’t come back, you fools!
Xorpoth: I can’t believe this.
Xorpoth: Dad is going to kick my ass so bad 😦
Bumble: I’m so relieved I can finally use the potty on my own.
Winter has come, and Tim FINALLY gets back to work.
Thank the sim god!
…Oh wait that’s me.
Tim is getting promoted pretty easily because he already grind out his writing skill at home.
Veri: Envision it babe, after this, we’re done. We can finally live like sane sims after this.
Tim: *is hopeful*
I was surprised to see Tim get up from bed even though he was totally beat. You’d think the guy would learn by now not to chase after strange lights.
The house is quiet.
Daxaghtupp: Since both of my sons failed, I must take the matter into my own hands. This mission is of utmost importance.
Tim is so attractive that they already wasted 3 intergalactic flights on him.
Tim: Wait… That one felt different than usual.
I have no idea why the aliens are so obsessed with Tim. I can already hear their spaceships coming back.
I thought now that she had a man, all I had to worry about was money.
Tim’s joystick is apparently broken. That or he’s doing it wrong on purpose.
Tim: 😉 One more time?
Trying in the theatre didn’t seem to work either.
They tried for baby 10 times. She still wasn’t pregnant… I had them go steady, thinking maybe that was the problem, but nope…
But thank plumbob for MC. Resetting him fixed his manhood.
Tim moved in.
He joined the journalism career.
Veri: I think might be pregnant…?
Tim: It’s probably your imagination.
Veri: I’m gonna be rich if I sell this fish.
She fished all day and earned $30 from the consignment store.
Veri brought Tim to bar and got him drunk before telling him the news.
Tim: *burps* At least the sim god won’t pester me about my pixel stick anymore. That was embarrassing.
Veri: Yeah, bull! Throw him off!
Wiley was drinking his sorrows away at a corner of the bar.
Wiley: Ugh my stomach hurts…
Veri: Don’t fret friend. I will use my powers to find out the source of your troubles.
Wiley: Actually, I know tha—
Veri: Ssh! …Hmmm I see. You the have the same issue my husband did.
1! And the baby is here.
Tim: No! I’m not ready. Push it back in!
It’s a boy!
His name is Moore Orangee. He rolled the excited and preceptive traits.
Veri: Did you finish taking the picture yet? Can I put him down now?
Tim: Did you pee your pants again?
Tim: Was I also this small at his age?
Moore: Feels funny.
They didn’t have the money or friends to hold a wedding, so I just had them do it across the street.
I realized after that marrying them was a bad idea. Because now Tim has the next FIVE days off. Which means 5 days without income -_-;
Having 5 children would take forever, so I spent all her aspiration points on the fertility treatment, and also had her dance to kids music.
Tim: Will this help? I’m a party animal, I can dance all day!
If you’re wondering why Tim always wears pink, it’s because that’s his favorite color.
Veri is unaware of her husband’s abduction.
Axarion: I hope I did this right. Call me up when you give birth, dude!
I REALLY hope that doesn’t happen.
Veri comforts Tim with some bedtime cuddles.
Veri: Sheesh, why is this kid so clumsy with his words. I don’t know who he takes after.
Desparate for money, Veri decided to throw a gift giving party.
Man: BOO! THIS PARTY STINKS. YOUR TODDLER STINKS.
You weren’t even invited…
Willard brought fried chicken. Chad brought fried bacon.
Man: $hit! I hate kids!
Mimi was a lot more hearty with her food, she baked a bread for the Orangees :).
Party Crasher: This the chick that got Chad all bothered? Looks more like a tangerine than a woman.
Wiley: *best dancer*
Tim bragging about how his wife looks like a painting.
Willard: Yeah man… I’m listening.
Tim got a painting (probably from Willard). And Veri got a chess table.
Chad: Hey babe, let’s grab a drink aft—
Veri: Nonono! I’m a married woman now.
Chad: Even friends can drink together 😦
Veri: You think I’m stupid to not know your intention? Get lost.
Chad: Best party ever! I love how she rejected me five times in a row! Such spirit, such beauty!
Everyone else: It was ok.
It looks like they have a nighttime visitor.
Daxaghtupp: Good evening. I’m aware there was an operation here recently. Do you have the child?
Veri: Omg, he is green! And what child? I only have my son.
Daxaghtupp: I knew that stupid boy of mine was no good. Gosh I’m so embarrassed.
Daxaghtupp: Maybe if I take some DNA from their clothes, our next attempt will be more successful.
I have a bad feeling about these aliens…
Well here’s someone new. Ms Veri Orangee. She thinks she would get to live in my luxurious Lucky Palms city, but I have other plans.
-Clumsy -Computer wizard -Coward -Schmoozer -Perfectionist
Random Legacy Roll
Marital Status: Couple
Number of Children: 5 Children
Primary Career: Video Game Designer (Engineer)
Secondary Career: Mixologist
Generational Goal: Hobby, or Obsession?
Miscellaneous Fun: Opposites Attract/Perfect Match
Veri: Where are we? Why is there grass. LP doesn’t have grass.
It’s not LP, love. It’s Starlight Shores, and you’re a legacy founder. Here’s your home.
I sent her off to a random community lot while I built a small shack.
Basically, cheap CC saved my butt.
ITF is a godsend.
Veri understands her situation.
She ended up finding 2 lamps (useless). I sold one and kept the other which looked like this:
Lamp’s got to be stinky.
Veri: I don’t wanna go home to that… plot.
Instead of going home, she decided to find some nerd friends, because the best way to get nerd levels (so we can be game designer) is to socialize with said nerds.
I thought Willard Wright would for sure be a nerd, but Starlight Shores came out before university. Plum it.
AKA there’s no nerds in this world.
However, the Olivia’s do have a TV and console. So I had Veri level her influence to 1 on their TV, until she broke it.
Veri: Hey I’m sorry about your TV but can you make some food? I’m hungry.
One of the roomies was not happy with her sabotage.
So I had no choice but to use all the funds from the ITF portal to buy her a tv and gaming system.
She invited Willard over in an attempt to make him a nerd so they could socialize with each other.
It didn’t really work but at least they had fun. And Veri was being a donut about how he hurt her with the pillow.
Willard: How is that even possible—
After Willard left, Veri decided to take a break and visit her neighbors, the Lucks.
Wylie is a decent hot dog maker.
Chad: Get out of here kid, I’m trying to spend time with a lady.
Issac: Oh but… Just pretend I’m not here (I could learn something).
Issac: Omg, why would he do that? That’s so cringy.
Since Chad was so aggressive with his advances, I wondered if they have a trait in common (remember the opposites/perfect match challenge). I used master contr—my sixth sense to deduct that they did not in fact, have anything in common.
He was basically just a pimp.
Chad: Oh pretty lady—
Veri: Nope, nothing common, nothing conflict. Good bye.
So I’m having a hard time finding her a man, and I’ve spent all the aspiration pts she earned so far on nerd influence, because it’s taking forever.
Still unemployed and single, Veri decided to spend some time at the simfest.
She was selected as a “volunteer”.
I’m not sure about this…
But it seems the magician was actually legit.
After a few days of asking around town, I’ve heard of a fellow sim with the clumsy trait. Yes, because of all the traits it just had to be that one.
Anyways, Veri decides to invite him over.
“I’ll be there.” He said.
And then he was there. He came from BEHIND HER HOUSE. HE JUST APPEARED.
Veri almost got a heart attack.
Veri: That scared me. He’s kinda cute… but he was so creepy…
Tim: I’m a virgo, we’re compatible.
Veri: Oh then I guess it’s okay 😀
By the way, his name is Tim Hammer.
Tim: We’re on a date and all you do is play video games??
Veri: This is how all dates work now, you prune. Get with the times.
Veri: You hurt me with the pillow, jackass!
Veri: GAHHH. My face is sore from your brutality.
Tim: I can give you a massage. I’m pretty good at it.
Veri: What? You want to knead a woman’s face? Go away.
Tim: Then how about some flowers? 😉
Veri: Well I guess it’s ok…
And actually… I r e a l l y l o v e f l o w e r s .
Veri: So I guess you’ll do.
Fun fact, Tim is a party dancer. He’s one of these guys…
Btw, the obsession I chose for Veri is video gaming. Technically, she doesn’t earn money from gaming soooo 🙂
Island Waikiki is largely uninhabited. Owned by a billionaire as a private resort island, only a few dozen people would be there at a time. Though there are no nearby islands, Waikiki does have an old neighbor who lives right under them… the mermaids.
Of these quiet residents, there’s one who is particularly adventurous.
This is not his first time visiting the sands! This young merman has returned again and again, establishing even his own “shelter” on the isle.
He both made- and stole, items. Being good with crafts, he was able to build a bed with “borrowed covers”, and a dining table from drift wood and discarded logs. Other little things, that were left out in the open, were quietly swiped by the young merman.
Among these were, of course, clothing. It didn’t take long to learn that the few existing locals did not appreciate his original getup. Being the only earth walking merman was lonely, but there’s a reason why he was unable to bring along his friends from the sea. Normal mermaids and mermen could not obtain legs. It requires an extraordinary amount of magical ability to conjure instruments made for treading land.
He was capable of this, just as other members of the royal Mer family. He is the Queen’s second child, Delmer Oceanspark.
Unlike his brother, Delmer isn’t eligible for the throne, and has plenty of time to spare.
Delmer: These green things are so juicy!
(It’s not a good idea to eat stuff you randomly pick up…)
Delmer had built his “home” in resemblance of what he’s seen on the island. There was always a sense of loss as he looked at the empty chairs, and he wished to get along with the islanders as one of their own.
Delmer: I need some subjects for my court.
But he wasn’t confident.
Whenever the locals happened to spot him, he quickly disappeared, leaving them doubting their sight.
Desperate for some proper clothing to hide his scales, Delmer finally gathered up courage to push aside his hesitation. He invaded an empty home on the other side of the isle. Delmer: This person has bad fashion sense…
Getting through the locks was nothing for Mer magic, and he quickly gathered a few garments to his tastes, making sure they covered his legs. He was satisfied with his new disguise.
Finally, he could confidently interact with earth-people.
He also took a liking to their beverages…
Delmer: Yummm…. Tastes like a mixture of seaweed and octopus ink, delicious!
And he was amazed by the amount of things the earth-people did.
It was all so amazing to him…
Delmer: Look at the sky! It’s beautiful! From under the water it always looks like rainbow poop.
But the night would always come, and when the sun sets, the prince is immediately reminded of the cool waters of his home, and the lingering thirst in his chest.
He missed the sea.
And he would always return to it.
Delmer: *splash splash* I actually have terrible swimming skills, it’s just my tail.
The ocean was his birthplace, and where his family and friends reside. He couldn’t stay on the isle; so like always, he decides he would return to the earth another day.
He’ll be back when the sun is high, and the locals are awake… and when he has too much
hydration time on his hands.
Delmer: I like Shakespeare. I have to read it on the island because I can’t bring this book into the waters.
Delmer: *reading Shakespeare*
Farewell! God knows when we shall meet again.
(Only snobs like Shakespeare)
Delmer: Oh, you are still here… The story is done, you know.
I guess I’ll show you a little magic, since you already seem to miss me.
Uh yeah, that was it… That was real magic. I don’t know what kind of pseudo act you earth-people enjoy, but my people pay lots to see that! Be grateful!
And don’t miss me too much. I’m sure we’ll meet again soon ♥ (I’m giving you a heart with my lips)!
Xarley’s daughter is very cute. But like they say: ugly in the crib, pretty at the table… I hope she turns out well. ♥
