Chapter 2.6

TS4_x64 2018-08-25 17-00-02-31

Welcome back!  You might be wondering why Paige is not happy.

TS4_x64 2018-08-25 17-02-32-83

That’s because big sister Opal is doing the Deviant aspirations.  She is now enemies with her mom and Paige.

TS4_x64 2018-08-25 17-03-28-90

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.

TS4_x64 2018-08-25 17-18-18-81

As you can see, it’s really upset them.  Or it’s because these idiots were outside playing in a thunderstorm.

TS4_x64 2018-08-25 17-31-06-67

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.

TS4_x64 2018-08-25 17-34-55-44

If I see this notification one more damn time.  I swear.

TS4_x64 2018-08-25 17-45-00-10

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.

TS4_x64 2018-08-25 17-48-49-03

Him and his love of talking.  If he isn’t bugging his big sisters, he is with one of the 3 Blarffy things.

TS4_x64 2018-08-25 17-49-58-06

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.

TS4_x64 2018-08-25 17-53-47-19

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.

TS4_x64 2018-08-25 17-55-02-11

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.

TS4_x64 2018-08-25 18-01-36-90

Lunch with Jax.

TS4_x64 2018-08-25 18-02-43-85

Chatting with mommy.  She told him a story.  He wasn’t interested because he was in the red for something.

TS4_x64 2018-08-25 18-05-10-58

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.

TS4_x64 2018-08-25 18-08-00-71

TS4_x64 2018-08-25 18-09-49-09

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.

TS4_x64 2018-08-25 18-12-12-63

Opal goes up and yells at Paige for a bit.  I think Patrick is asleep and got left alone.

TS4_x64 2018-08-25 18-25-52-16

Paige hunted all over the house for mommy to ask for a bath.

TS4_x64 2018-08-25 18-27-56-43

Robin:  Why are you so sad?

TS4_x64 2018-08-25 18-28-09-75

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.

TS4_x64 2018-08-25 18-28-28-18

Poor Rachel.  Forever tied to the piano.

TS4_x64 2018-08-25 18-37-49-84

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.

TS4_x64 2018-08-25 18-39-27-90

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.

TS4_x64 2018-08-25 18-40-29-85

I have no clue what Jax is doing, but Paige is fully enchanted with him.

TS4_x64 2018-08-25 18-44-28-69

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.

TS4_x64 2018-08-25 18-45-33-67

<sigh>  I think Belladonna snuck behind the bar again.

TS4_x64 2018-08-25 18-47-59-10

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.

TS4_x64 2018-08-25 18-53-32-38

Paige is not as found of the play area.  She keeps getting scraped knees from the tunnel.

TS4_x64 2018-08-25 18-55-19-53

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.

TS4_x64 2018-08-25 18-55-46-73

Apparently this is what you do when you have to go?

Also, Robin hugs Opal instead of getting mad.  I laughed.

TS4_x64 2018-08-25 18-58-32-28

TS4_x64 2018-08-25 18-58-34-89

Jax:  Pay attention to me!

Jax:  Hello?

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.

TS4_x64 2018-08-25 18-58-43-46

The reason why Rachel ignored Jax.

TS4_x64 2018-08-25 18-59-30-25

Opal, you fail at life.

TS4_x64 2018-08-25 19-00-14-82

Jax:  Back away from my favorite hoomin.

Patrick was again at the verge of starvation.

TS4_x64 2018-08-25 19-04-47-42

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.

TS4_x64 2018-08-25 19-04-50-80

900th time seeing this.

TS4_x64 2018-08-25 19-05-54-81

Back to no excellent paintings (or masterpieces).  Jax is still trying to get attention though.

TS4_x64 2018-08-25 19-07-59-50

Everything goes almost the same.  This time, Opal has to do 10 mischievous things.  She sent 10 random people chain letters.

TS4_x64 2018-08-25 19-10-49-52

I have no clue if I have learned my saving lesson yet.

TS4_x64 2018-08-25 19-15-20-36

Robin:  Why are we here?

Opal:  I gotta clog some drains and shit.

TS4_x64 2018-08-25 19-16-01-86

TS4_x64 2018-08-25 19-16-20-29


TS4_x64 2018-08-25 19-19-32-55

It’s neighborhood brawl day.  Neither Robin or Opal have the option to participate.

TS4_x64 2018-08-25 19-20-40-19

TS4_x64 2018-08-25 19-27-00-13

TS4_x64 2018-08-25 19-28-24-45

In case you were wondering where they are, the girls are meeting Aunt Lucille and her family.

Opal makes an enemy of Lucille though.

TS4_x64 2018-08-25 19-29-03-65

Yeah, she is that bad.

TS4_x64 2018-08-25 19-42-14-65

Uh oh.  Poor Jax.

TS4_x64 2018-08-25 19-44-03-73

Poor Jax!  I actually worried that my save was corrupting.

Belladonna was able to treat him anyway.

TS4_x64 2018-08-25 19-45-55-21

Then they went to the retail shop and he was fine.

TS4_x64 2018-08-25 19-48-28-30

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.

TS4_x64 2018-08-25 19-55-13-54

Note to self:  This shop is too small to get anything done.

TS4_x64 2018-08-25 20-13-47-10

This just might be one of Petunia’s twins.

TS4_x64 2018-08-25 20-18-02-29

11 hours, 8 thing sold.  Blech.

TS4_x64 2018-08-26 12-07-12-14

Belladonna:  I need a day off.  Thanks.

TS4_x64 2018-08-26 13-47-41-33

Patrick:  Gramma, gimme attention!

TS4_x64 2018-08-26 13-57-01-03 TS4_x64 2018-08-26 13-57-35-56

Finally and yes, I remembered to save this time.

TS4_x64 2018-08-26 13-53-38-09

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.

TS4_x64 2018-08-26 13-58-28-81

Opal’s next aspiration.

TS4_x64 2018-08-26 13-59-24-89

Ahh, there it is.  Empathy.

TS4_x64 2018-08-26 13-59-56-33

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.

TS4_x64 2018-08-26 14-03-36-83

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.

TS4_x64 2018-08-26 14-02-30-25


TS4_x64 2018-08-26 14-04-25-17

Oh bite me.

TS4_x64 2018-08-26 14-05-07-57

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.

TS4_x64 2018-08-26 14-06-08-04

TS4_x64 2018-08-26 14-06-21-38

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.

TS4_x64 2018-08-26 14-07-41-33

Patrick:  Sissy, I want story.

Rachel:  Sorry, bub.  Sissy is high from the fumes and writing a song about it.

TS4_x64 2018-08-26 14-08-55-13

Patrick:  Quit following me!

TS4_x64 2018-08-26 14-13-30-40

Rachel finally had to stop to shower.

TS4_x64 2018-08-26 14-16-51-41

Well, finally!  Sheesh.  It will probably be another lifetime before she hits level 10 though.

TS4_x64 2018-08-26 14-18-08-25

Woo!  I love money trees!

TS4_x64 2018-08-26 14-21-16-88

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.


TS4_x64 2018-08-26 14-22-49-39

Robin can make this sunlight drink now.  As soon as Belladonna got home, I moved all the vampire ingredients over to Robin.

TS4_x64 2018-08-26 14-23-06-60

Who is working on the Good Vampire aspiration.

TS4_x64 2018-08-26 14-23-29-10

I never thought this day would come.

TS4_x64 2018-08-26 14-24-06-39

So, Opal tests out the sunlight drink.

TS4_x64 2018-08-26 14-24-29-78

Dammit.  I thought it was permanent.  It’s like 3 am, so this was a waste of ingredients.

TS4_x64 2018-08-26 14-26-55-55

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.

TS4_x64 2018-08-26 14-28-53-85

Mentoring Belladonna for 3 hours finally gets this crap done.

TS4_x64 2018-08-26 14-41-11-68

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.

TS4_x64 2018-08-26 14-41-47-03

TS4_x64 2018-08-26 14-42-18-01

I’m so excited!

TS4_x64 2018-08-26 14-42-39-22 TS4_x64 2018-08-26 14-42-41-00

Are you kidding me right now?  Bad apple top-notch toddler?  I didn’t think that was possible.

TS4_x64 2018-08-26 14-43-25-94

I think I’m glad he didn’t win heir.  He is a clone of his ugly dad.

TS4_x64 2018-08-26 14-43-32-13

Paige was next.

TS4_x64 2018-08-26 14-43-44-63 TS4_x64 2018-08-26 14-43-46-98

This is how I knew that Patrick must of gotten all maxed skills.

TS4_x64 2018-08-26 14-43-53-28

Belladonna was at work and missed the birthdays.  This doesn’t even get her close to a promotion, but every little bit helps.

TS4_x64 2018-08-26 14-47-21-75

MCCC does not have permission to deal with the active family.  What is going on here?

TS4_x64 2018-08-26 15-03-37-96


TS4_x64 2018-08-26 15-04-10-59


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.

TS4_x64 2018-08-26 14-52-03-11

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.

TS4_x64 2018-08-26 14-37-25-58

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.

  1. Wow, well done Mr Bad Apple Patrick! He was uber adorable as a toddler, but you’re right, not so cute as a child. If only Paige had some of the fun colouring, she might have had a better chance at winning. But Robin is also a great choice.


    1. Yeah, Patrick is a sweet kid, but I am glad he didn’t win. Rachel and Robin were my favorites from the beginning, so I am glad one of them won. Paige is cute, but she really looks a lot like Victoria and Belladonna. It’s nice that Robin of the super long face won. Might get some interesting looking kids when the house isn’t bursting at the seams.
