Welcome back! You might be wondering why Paige is not happy.
That’s because big sister Opal is doing the Deviant aspirations. She is now enemies with her mom and Paige.
I haven’t figured out how to cause mischief on the computer yet. I am going to assume it’s because her level is too low. She adds Patrick to enemy list next.
As you can see, it’s really upset them. Or it’s because these idiots were outside playing in a thunderstorm.
Belladonna is now trying to wipe out the Painter Extraordinaire aspiration while Robin amuses Jax, who seems to be super needy lately.
I’m having a hard time writing today. I mentioned it elsewhere, but not here. I have a trigger thumb on my left hand and last night my right finger started hurting from the joint closest to my palm all the way to the first knuckle for no apparent reason. I’m going to blame old age here. It’s not so bad typing, but I can’t grasp anything and it hurts to move the mouse around.
Oh, and my game keeps crashing. It will be evident because half of this update is repeating the same things over again.
If I see this notification one more damn time. I swear.
Victoria buys rare seed packets and keeps getting these bean things. I had to Google and then I cheated them the stump just to put the seeds in them. It will never be used. I just wanted the collection.
Him and his love of talking. If he isn’t bugging his big sisters, he is with one of the 3 Blarffy things.
Case in point. I think this is where it got maxed. Paige is a Top-Notch toddler already. Right now, Rachel is working on her Musical aspiration.
Yes, this is going to get old for you. The game kept crashing after her 2nd song. The fact that it takes 200 hours to write one song added to the crashing means that I got annoyed with it all.
Movement is maxed. He is really all over the place. I treated both him and Paige the same, that way they grew up fairly the same.
Lunch with Jax.
Chatting with mommy. She told him a story. He wasn’t interested because he was in the red for something.
Ahh. Poor baby had to go bad.
For the longest time, this was going to be the heir. You guys really love Patrick!
Patrick and Robin were even tied for a while, but Robin did come from behind to win.
I’m pretty sure I had crashed again. This time, the girls do their homework, do a dark meditation and then get back to their aspirations.
Opal goes up and yells at Paige for a bit. I think Patrick is asleep and got left alone.
Paige hunted all over the house for mommy to ask for a bath.
Robin: Why are you so sad?
I think it’s because the food plate is next to his bed and it takes 5 years to go from upstairs to downstairs to be with his big sister while he eats.
Patrick hates to be alone.
Poor Rachel. Forever tied to the piano.
This would be a lot more awesome if it was the first time through. She needs like 10 excellent paintings. This is #1. Before the last crash, she was up to 4.
I may need to save more freaking often.
Victoria takes a vacation day to max her logic skill. I don’t not like human Victoria. Everything takes forever. It took like 5 days for her to get this far.
I have no clue what Jax is doing, but Paige is fully enchanted with him.
Patrick is one of the rare few that will autonomously play with the tablet. I do have a mod that lets them keep it in their inventory and return it to the inventory when they are done. It does not affect if they use it or not.
Also, Paige will spend hours talking with Patrick, whereas Patrick prefers his older sisters.
<sigh> I think Belladonna snuck behind the bar again.
Now this is an interesting development.
Opal: Now to become a real airplane, you need to stay like this while I shoot you through the window.
Paige: I’ll tell mommy if you’re mean to me again.
Opal did have a family aspiration. Since she had no chance to become heir, I got rid of the domestic trait and manually gave her dastardly for the deviance.
Paige is not as found of the play area. She keeps getting scraped knees from the tunnel.
Opal is now doing whatever she can to piss off Robin. Patrick is being super naughty. Mommy is at work and no one else can discipline him.
Apparently this is what you do when you have to go?
Also, Robin hugs Opal instead of getting mad. I laughed.
Jax: Pay attention to me!
Jax: Nevermind. Stupid hoomins.
Jax then proceeded to go shred furniture for the very first time and got scolded. Then he went and started boinking at the trash and got scolded for tying to knock it over.
The reason why Rachel ignored Jax.
Opal, you fail at life.
Jax: Back away from my favorite hoomin.
Patrick was again at the verge of starvation.
Sigh, we must have crashed again. Freaking game.
I have added nothing new to the game. I played a legacy save without a single crash just hours before this.
900th time seeing this.
Back to no excellent paintings (or masterpieces). Jax is still trying to get attention though.
Everything goes almost the same. This time, Opal has to do 10 mischievous things. She sent 10 random people chain letters.
I have no clue if I have learned my saving lesson yet.
Robin: Why are we here?
Opal: I gotta clog some drains and shit.
It’s neighborhood brawl day. Neither Robin or Opal have the option to participate.
In case you were wondering where they are, the girls are meeting Aunt Lucille and her family.
Opal makes an enemy of Lucille though.
Yeah, she is that bad.
Uh oh. Poor Jax.
Poor Jax! I actually worried that my save was corrupting.
Belladonna was able to treat him anyway.
Then they went to the retail shop and he was fine.
I called Victoria over really fast so that she can do an instant upgrade and do some regular upgrading as 12 was going to happen soon. Either that or she had already done that. Her and Belladonna get some fighting in.
Note to self: This shop is too small to get anything done.
This just might be one of Petunia’s twins.
11 hours, 8 thing sold. Blech.
Belladonna: I need a day off. Thanks.
Patrick: Gramma, gimme attention!
Finally and yes, I remembered to save this time.
I thought Opal was just stinky, but it turns out she is burping. She is in line for the bad manners trait and one other one. She has nothing else to do until after her birthday, so she is reading vampire tomes. While Robin is level 12-ish, Opal is level 2.
Opal’s next aspiration.
Ahh, there it is. Empathy.
I have no reason for this one at all. Victoria is still plugging away at the gardener career. Her and Belladonna haven’t had promotions in forever.
Omg. Seriously? Every time Rachel had to stop for basic needs, she had to start new song writings. I found these in her inventory with the option to continue to write. I feel so stupid. So, now she has 3 songs that are 50%, 50% and 80% completed. When a song takes like 12-20 hours to write, there should be a continue writing songs when selecting to write a song. Sort of like continue writing a book on a computer.
Oh bite me.
Food is literally set within reach of his bed 3 times a day. I forget to have one of the bigger sims grab a plate while he is asleep to shove in to his inventory.
I’m surprised he made it downstairs before starving to death. He has chairs in the nursery. He just won’t use them if a sister is in the house.
Patrick: Sissy, I want story.
Rachel: Sorry, bub. Sissy is high from the fumes and writing a song about it.
Patrick: Quit following me!
Rachel finally had to stop to shower.
Well, finally! Sheesh. It will probably be another lifetime before she hits level 10 though.
Woo! I love money trees!
I got a pop up that Opal learned the Wellness skill. For some reason this amused me.
Opal: Just get the hell away from me.
Robin can make this sunlight drink now. As soon as Belladonna got home, I moved all the vampire ingredients over to Robin.
Who is working on the Good Vampire aspiration.
I never thought this day would come.
So, Opal tests out the sunlight drink.
Dammit. I thought it was permanent. It’s like 3 am, so this was a waste of ingredients.
Rachel: Geez, mom, you suck! You’d think at your age you’d have some piano time under your hat.
Belladonna: I’ve been too busy maxing multiple skills and aspirations.
Mentoring Belladonna for 3 hours finally gets this crap done.
Let’s have 3 birthdays. Victoria still had a lot of time left as a Young Adult, but considering she should have been dead for 30 years, I felt okay having a birthday for her.
I’m so excited!
Are you kidding me right now? Bad apple top-notch toddler? I didn’t think that was possible.
I think I’m glad he didn’t win heir. He is a clone of his ugly dad.
Paige was next.
This is how I knew that Patrick must of gotten all maxed skills.
Belladonna was at work and missed the birthdays. This doesn’t even get her close to a promotion, but every little bit helps.
MCCC does not have permission to deal with the active family. What is going on here?
Unfortunately, when we came out of CAS, the twins had switched places on the bar, so I saw his traits when I thought I was checking Paige’s.
Also, the twins are human!
Patrick is Self-Assured
Paige is Outgoing.
And Rachel hates them both. We found this out because she sat on Patrick’s bed while he was asleep to have a plasma snack.
I went scrolling through the Notifications and saw that this had popped up almost immediately before the break up between him and Robin. I must have it set that teens can only date teens.
Big update with most of it replaying the same thing over and over again, like Groundhog Day.
