Chapter 3.0

TS4_x64 2018-08-26 19-35-13-21

Welcome to Generation 3 with Robin and her extremely long face and pointy chin.

TS4_x64 2018-08-26 19-24-39-10

Robin is still a Dog Lover and Active, but did not get an adult trait.

TS4_x64 2018-08-26 19-25-39-66

I confirm it in cas. Also, she does not have the gregarious trait because her main aspiration is Soulmate.

TS4_x64 2018-08-26 19-34-39-59

Rachel is now Hates Children, Perfectionist, and Genius.  She already completed her aspiration.

TS4_x64 2018-08-26 19-37-36-16

Rachel takes up fishing in the worst outfit ever (it’s winter).

TS4_x64 2018-08-26 19-37-23-43

Her grandmother and cat are out collecting stuff at the same time.

Rachel stops fishing and then can’t fish anymore due to the extreme cold.  Might have to top fishing by skill book or will have to wait until spring.

TS4_x64 2018-08-26 19-50-20-85

Robin now has to ask permission to drink from two sims.  Of course Victoria is the first.

TS4_x64 2018-08-26 20-07-22-68

Harvestfest rolls around (again).  Everyone is cheering that Robin (and then Opal) piss off the gnomes.

TS4_x64 2018-08-26 20-08-28-64

Robin, Opal, Rachel and Belladonna appease the gnomes.

TS4_x64 2018-08-26 20-34-10-52

Belladonna has taken up the guitar.  She is now done doing aspirations, but that may change since we still have 10 to go (11 if you count City Living, which we are not).

Where we Stand:
Right now, we still have these Aspirations left to do:
Public Enemy – Opal

Dj MIxing – Rachel – Done
Fishing – Rachel – level 7

All that and this is the last generation.  Hoooboy.

Now back to the update.

TS4_x64 2018-08-26 20-34-10-52

Robin has maxed her Vampire Lore skill, but she isn’t even a Prime Vampire yet.

Robin:  Kind of hard to do when all you let us leave the lot for is the store or the clubhouse.

I know.

TS4_x64 2018-08-26 21-15-26-96

TS4_x64 2018-08-26 21-15-29-64

These vampires are stupid.  I had to put all skill items that were outside in a new basement because they were all cooking themselves in the sun to get to them.

It does clear the yard and house of all this crap cluttering it up too.

TS4_x64 2018-08-26 21-21-44-71

It’s about damn time.

TS4_x64 2018-08-26 21-22-21-20

Victoria:  Can I be done now?  I’m too old for this crap.

How about you quit your job and start the curator aspiration.  PLEASE?

Victoria:  No.


Belladonna still has not topped her career yet either.  She had 4 days off then harvestfest and another day off.  It’s crazy that she only works like 2 or 3 days a week.

TS4_x64 2018-08-27 08-27-49-23

Victoria (I’m pretty sure this is the next day) fails at the new water slide.

TS4_x64 2018-08-27 08-28-22-81

Rachel is now tied to doing the DJ Mixing skill.

TS4_x64 2018-08-27 08-31-13-76

How the heck are you gaining guitar skill by singing?  We don’t need you to do that one.

TS4_x64 2018-08-27 08-48-58-90

Rachel, Robin and Opal add their pics to the memory wall.

TS4_x64 2018-08-27 08-53-27-81

I have not bothered with Paige’s aspiration.  I’m way too focused on the adults right now.

TS4_x64 2018-08-27 09-02-13-41

This is why Victoria learning the guitar is not needed.

TS4_x64 2018-08-27 09-06-33-70

Opal is just doing nothing (aside from keeping Jax occupied and happy), so I bought her a pipe organ.

Opal:  Gee, thanks.

TS4_x64 2018-08-27 09-09-59-35

Aww, that’s so sad.  I really liked Evie, Oscar’s wife…or was it Omar’s?

TS4_x64 2018-08-27 09-14-52-47

It’s talk like a pirate day.

TS4_x64 2018-08-27 09-18-27-97

Victoria:  Why do you keep changing your hair color?

Patrick:  Blame Eaxis’ bad genetic coding for child and under.

TS4_x64 2018-08-27 09-27-42-60

Robin went out and actually got gardening level 2 so she could evolve stuff.  I think this is the best plant so far!  Too bad it took 3 generations for it to happen.

TS4_x64 2018-08-27 09-30-51-80

Grandpa Caleb enjoying the pipe organ and is able to meet Opal for the first time.

TS4_x64 2018-08-27 09-35-53-95

TS4_x64 2018-08-27 09-36-17-49

Everyone except Victoria, Patrick and Paige are up 24 hrs a day to skill.

Belladonna is now doing the wellness skill.

TS4_x64 2018-08-27 09-36-35-30

I think Robin is up to level 4 now.  This one is long and grueling.  She can’t scent them, but I love the different vases you can use.

TS4_x64 2018-08-27 09-46-37-70

In fact, I have her smoldering at the flea market.  She runs inside the Karaoke bar every so often to keep alive.

TS4_x64 2018-08-27 09-48-42-57

Heaven Vatore.  I can’t recall who she belongs to, but I think she’s an aunt or a cousin.

TS4_x64 2018-08-27 09-53-40-37

That’s when I notice that Belladonna and Victoria’s portraits were not grayed out.

Why the hell are you naked?

Victoria:  I’m not even sure how I got here or where this drink came from.

Belladonna:  I’m here to celebrate my promotion.

TS4_x64 2018-08-27 09-53-59-44


Belladonna joins a new career and Victoria is now a Secret Agent.

TS4_x64 2018-08-27 09-54-56-93

Here they are quitting their jobs.  You can go home now.

TS4_x64 2018-08-27 10-11-48-81

Robin had a long day.  She did sell several of her flowers though.  Rachel is here to work on the Angler aspiration.  Robin and her stench are still here because there is a vampire breaking in and she can’t go home.

TS4_x64 2018-08-27 10-18-08-53

Nothing good happens until later that night when the twins head home.

TS4_x64 2018-08-27 10-17-17-54

WTF?  Go inside, moron.

TS4_x64 2018-08-27 10-20-32-67

Rachel marks off another item from the to-do list.

TS4_x64 2018-08-27 10-23-23-59

Then everyone helps out Opal and Paige with their projects.

TS4_x64 2018-08-27 10-23-30-70

Unless you’re Belladonna.  Then you get forgotten about in the back of the room (behind the toddler playset in the previous picture).

TS4_x64 2018-08-27 10-32-04-41

Rachel heads back out to fish and wayyy back behind her, Victoria is starting out The Curator aspiration (Akira’s if that jerk hadn’t been murdered by Victoria).

It has taken me several days to do this update because my kid ended up almost killing himself doing yard work in tall weeds.  We thought we had inspected the yard well enough before he started, but apparently not.  He weed whacked right into poison oak or ivy and he is severely, severely allergic to it.  It took two trips, one to the ER and one to his doctor over the past couple of days to get the steroid shot to take.  Add another 24 hours before the swelling went down.  No school for him until next Tuesday to make sure his face goes back to his normal size.

At least this time it was only one side of his head.  A year or two ago (some of you might remember this) someone in the area was burning it and Nick inhaled it and ended up in the hospital then for his first meeting with the only thing in the world he is allergic to.


My poor baby.  He will probably never agree to any type of yard work again.

Anyway, all of this is what I have been doing in between calamine sessions and doctor’s offices.

TS4_x64 2018-08-29 17-54-41-64

Going back in, Victoria and Rachel were still at the park.  Victoria drinks a moodlet solver mid-collecting.

TS4_x64 2018-08-29 17-55-15-52

I need to remember to lighten some of these up.  Her maxed handiness skill gets her into the hidden spot in Oasis Springs.

TS4_x64 2018-08-29 17-57-06-07

But it takes her three or four tries to actually make in.

TS4_x64 2018-08-29 18-02-51-58

Victoria heads home now that all her stuff is done.  Rachel continues on for a few minutes more because she still needs a couple of great catches.

TS4_x64 2018-08-29 18-10-56-66

Uponst (if you haven’t seen Kristen Hampton’s Product Testing Tuesday, you are missing out) returning, Jax is having some issues and dropping rainbow poops all over the place.

TS4_x64 2018-08-29 18-12-15-70

Robin immediately takes him to the clinic and he becomes her first patient.

TS4_x64 2018-08-29 18-12-34-63

He had to get off the table to puke and pass out first though.

TS4_x64 2018-08-29 18-15-34-46

Bella gets a promotion.

TS4_x64 2018-08-29 18-33-32-10

It’s Harold!  I can’t believe Petunia’s husband is so old already.

TS4_x64 2018-08-29 18-37-08-83

Patrick is doing something good, apparently.

TS4_x64 2018-08-29 18-39-08-23

Well, shit.

Robin stayed at the clinic late to work on creating treats.  We totally forgot about Opal’s birthday.

TS4_x64 2018-08-29 18-39-25-72

She looks exactly the same.

Her traits are now: Bro, Squeamish, Perfectionist, Bad Manners, Insensitive , Emotional Control, Tormentor, Dastardly, and Happy Toddler.

TS4_x64 2018-08-29 18-39-48-93

If you can’t tell, Paige and Patrick (because I can’t control him) are not doing anything important.  They run wild and do whatever they want.

TS4_x64 2018-08-29 18-47-41-36

Luckily you can choose who to open presents with, but I have no clue what Patrick got.  I saw a lot of lumps of clay though.

TS4_x64 2018-08-29 19-02-10-85

Oh and Robin managed to get this.  They have one already, so it was sold.

TS4_x64 2018-08-29 19-02-17-60

Opal got her ass kicked by Father Winter.

TS4_x64 2018-08-29 19-13-23-35

Victoria collected her 25th item and her aspiration completed.  I guess the magic beans were used in the collection completion.  I didn’t realize they would be retroactive, so she was working on elements.  I think she only needed one more too.

TS4_x64 2018-08-29 19-46-19-95

So, Patrick decided to freeze to death.

TS4_x64 2018-08-29 19-47-23-71

Belladonna had to add him to a group and then click on the couch to sit together before disbanding the group.  At least he lived.

TS4_x64 2018-08-29 19-35-10-02

Victoria gets a promotion soon after.

TS4_x64 2018-08-29 19-51-07-01

Paige has been sick and this is her second day in a row getting to stay home.

TS4_x64 2018-08-29 20-04-52-98

Even Rachel got a promotion.

And no, nothing is happening between promotions except skilling.  Boring stuff.

TS4_x64 2018-08-29 20-06-21-68

There we go, years and years of skilling.

TS4_x64 2018-08-29 20-44-44-89

The fastest way to build gourmet cooking is to make single servings.  Since we are Beyond Cheesy, we have to throw each and every dish she makes away.  Luckily, she is mostly using fresh produce, so we are not taking a big financial hit.

TS4_x64 2018-08-29 20-46-55-26

Finally!  My plan is almost done!

TS4_x64 2018-08-29 20-48-11-04

Luckily she had reward points saved up, since I forgot the worst ingredient.

TS4_x64 2018-08-29 20-48-31-55

TS4_x64 2018-08-29 20-48-45-17

Woah, that’s something we can sell!

TS4_x64 2018-08-29 20-51-04-68

Victoria becomes Robin’s first sim turned into a vampire.  I probably won’t actually count it towards her 5 since she was a vampire already.

TS4_x64 2018-08-29 20-51-30-39

Victoria:  I love you all so much.  See you soon.

TS4_x64 2018-08-29 21-01-34-35

And thus, Victoria and Jax move down the street with Caleb’s urn.  He was invited to move in and immediately given a tasty treat.

TS4_x64 2018-08-29 21-02-28-41

TS4_x64 2018-08-29 21-02-44-38

Before I could stop him, he ran out to shovel snow.

This was my first time making Ambrosia and bringing back a sim.  Also, now there is two open spots in the main house.

TS4_x64 2018-08-29 21-09-58-31

The elder mixologist becomes the next sim to be turned by Robin.

TS4_x64 2018-08-29 21-10-26-69

Robin: Didn’t my grandma turn you like 40 years ago?

Miko:  Yep.  I really love my life.

TS4_x64 2018-08-29 21-16-12-48

Robin:  Grandma!  It’s so nice to see you again.

Victoria:  Girl, I’ve only been out of the house for 12 hours.

TS4_x64 2018-08-29 21-17-14-75

The real reason the girls are out and about.

TS4_x64 2018-08-29 21-17-38-86

Opal is attacking everyone.  It only takes a couple of interactions to get the fight option, so it goes fast.

This is Father Winter.

TS4_x64 2018-08-29 21-26-50-94

Opal:  You two are going to regret crossing paths with me.

TS4_x64 2018-08-29 21-28-50-30

She beats the crap out of them both.  I was trying to have her declare enemies with the green one, and clicked fight again.  It counted towards her five need, so yay!

TS4_x64 2018-08-29 21-29-54-24

Her last milestone needs 3 enemies, we got that out of the way even though it will be awhile before she passes her current milestone.

TS4_x64 2018-08-29 21-31-21-48

She had the last name Vatore, so I had to delve deeply into the family tree.  She is married to Oscar’s daughter, Beverly who we haven’t seen since her unfortunate hair incident (missing mesh) back when she was a child.

TS4_x64 2018-08-29 21-33-33-57

Well, the outing comes to an end.  We don’t want to miss the twins’ birthday.

TS4_x64 2018-08-29 21-37-03-35

I should really clone Robin’s dark form and use MCCC to transplant on her normal form.  She is so much prettier.  I’m not going to during the challenge, but maybe after.

TS4_x64 2018-08-29 21-49-10-86

Make a wish!

TS4_x64 2018-08-29 21-49-56-96

TS4_x64 2018-08-29 21-50-10-75

Wow, they need makeovers.

TS4_x64 2018-08-29 22-21-28-66

Instead, Belladonna takes the family over to Victoria’s house for New Year’s.

Victoria:  Gee, thanks for the dead fish.

Belladonna:  Just save it okay.  When I’m ready to move out, you’re bringing back my Akira.

Belladonna gifted Victoria an angelfish and a death flower.

TS4_x64 2018-08-29 22-22-54-45

She already had Akira rejoin the family, but I immediately moved him in with Victoria and Caleb.

They all watched the countdown together.

TS4_x64 2018-08-29 22-26-04-93

They never sit around the table at their house!  I love that they did and just chatted for the evening.

TS4_x64 2018-08-29 22-37-16-75

TS4_x64 2018-08-29 22-37-28-38

Patrick and Paige got their makeovers.  They both got Magnus’ body, which is the weirdly shaped overweight one.

Still kind of cute, I guess.

It’s getting long and I need to wake the kid up to take an allergy pill and change out his cold pack.

I also have to re-evaluate all the skills and aspirations now that Victoria (and soon Belladonna) will be gone.  Those two have done enough for one lifetime.
