Chapter 4.1

TS4_x64 2018-09-27 20-18-01-12.jpg

Welcome back!  I got buried in work for the week and I couldn’t even open my game to play until last night.  That means I only have a small window of time to get this written and posted up before another hectic day starts.

We come back to find that the girls are very sad and even Adrianna is queued up to cry after she eats..

TS4_x64 2018-09-27 20-19-56-99.jpg

The reason is because they are cold.  So, the bills this week are going to be astronomical.  Good thing they’re rich.

TS4_x64 2018-09-27 20-22-04-85.jpg

Bath time!

TS4_x64 2018-09-27 20-45-05-88.jpg

Blocks.  Adrianna never did finish her last two skills.

TS4_x64 2018-09-27 20-58-05-92.jpg

Alien form.

TS4_x64 2018-09-27 20-58-33-71.jpg

Someone asked if Scarlet was an alien, and yes she is.

TS4_x64 2018-09-27 21-01-02-14.jpg

Pancakes with daddy at 3am.

TS4_x64 2018-09-27 21-27-08-24.jpg

Aaron heads out do some collecting.  He has an Aspiration of The Collector and he’s almost done with it.

TS4_x64 2018-09-27 21-40-23-11.jpg

Adrianna is Good and a Happy Toddler.  Her aspiration is Whiz Kid.

She convinces Aaron to play three games of chess with her right off the bat.

TS4_x64 2018-09-27 22-05-21-74.jpg

It’s also Winterfest.  There is no room in the house for a tree, so the roof is as good a place as any.

TS4_x64 2018-09-27 22-08-23-56.jpg

They head back upstairs and outside to get presents.

TS4_x64 2018-09-27 22-15-12-12.jpg

With all of his requirements done except topping his career, he now goes to work alone so that we can concentrate on Scarlet.

TS4_x64 2018-09-27 22-16-20-41.jpg

Imagination is done, potty is done, and communication is done.

TS4_x64 2018-09-27 22-22-54-32.jpg

Scarlet is a Genius and Top-Notch Toddler.  Her aspiration is Rambunctious Scamp.

TS4_x64 2018-09-27 22-30-43-59.jpg

Scarlet’s alien child form.

TS4_x64 2018-09-27 22-38-37-45.jpg

She joins her big sister in the Llama Scouts and they are both working on badges with Aaron.  Adrianna needs him to laugh a few times while Scarlet needs 12 (I think) friendly interactions.

TS4_x64 2018-09-27 22-45-34-40.jpg

Got get those badges, right?

TS4_x64 2018-09-27 22-50-28-23.jpg

There is definitely a lot free time.  Especially if dinner consists of cake.

TS4_x64 2018-09-27 23-05-35-74.jpg

New Year’s countdown!

TS4_x64 2018-09-27 23-07-52-05.jpg

Potions for Adrianna’s aspiration and drawing for Scarlet’s scout badge.  The girls are overworked and overtired.

TS4_x64 2018-09-27 23-10-23-59.jpg

It’s the first day of spring and they can finally work on their last badge, the fishing one.

TS4_x64 2018-09-27 23-12-27-16.jpg

Which gets done in just a matter of hours.

TS4_x64 2018-09-27 23-21-30-64.jpg

Aspirations have been completed and they are starting on their second ones.

TS4_x64 2018-09-27 23-43-18-40.jpg

Aaron is on freewill most of the time.  His job is really only to super harvest the $116,000 from the money trees every day and go to work.

TS4_x64 2018-09-27 23-53-12-29.jpg

Both girls have had to drink potions to get in the right mood.  I think at this point they are both working the Artistic Prodigy aspiration.

TS4_x64 2018-09-28 00-15-38-36.jpg

Yep, gotta make all 5 pictures and play an instrument for 5 hours.

TS4_x64 2018-09-28 00-21-44-46.jpg

Adrianna completes her five hours and now it’s Scarlet’s turn.

TS4_x64 2018-09-28 00-24-17-78.jpg

Adrianna heads out on her birthday to start the Social Butterfly.  I hate this one and we are only doing a small portion so that she has reward points built up.

TS4_x64 2018-09-28 00-27-41-27.jpg

Scarlet joins Adrianna.  They each meet 5 new people and already have a friend from school.  A boy that I never showed that came home with Adrianna after school a few times.

TS4_x64 2018-09-28 00-28-22-12.jpg

Besties!

TS4_x64 2018-09-28 00-29-40-23.jpg

They each completed that milestone and head home.  No more child workaholics.

TS4_x64 2018-09-28 00-31-45-26.jpg

TS4_x64 2018-09-28 00-40-54-50.jpg

Adrianna’s new aspiration is Master Chef.

  • Good
  • Outgoing
  • Physically Gifted
  • Mentally Gifted
  • Creatively Gifted
  • Happy Toddler
  • Scouting Aptitude
  • Essence of Flavor

She buys rewards:

  • Stoves and Grills Master
  • Storm Chaser

TS4_x64 2018-09-28 00-45-58-26.jpg

She immediately drinks a potion to cook while inspired.  At least the house will have some food options besides cake and pancakes.

TS4_x64 2018-09-28 01-02-48-96.jpg

Another Monday rolls around.  The girls take turns helping each other.

TS4_x64 2018-09-28 01-04-47-36.jpg

Dinner with Adrianna while Scarlet and Aaron chat with her.

TS4_x64 2018-09-28 01-05-46-44.jpg

Then it’s time for homework and Aaron’s dinner.

TS4_x64 2018-09-28 01-11-37-82.jpg

TS4_x64 2018-09-28 01-46-30-19.jpg

I’m pretty sure Scarlet is going to be our  heiress person.  She wants to be a Nerd Brain.

  • Genius
  • Romantic
  • Creatively Gifted
  • Mentally Gifted
  • Physically Gifted
  • Top-Notch Toddler
  • Scouting Aptitude
  • Quick Learner

She bought two rewards:

  • Storm Chaser
  • Connections

TS4_x64 2018-09-28 01-49-13-39.jpg

Adrianna woke up playful and made the gummi bear pancakes.  So, I guess pancakes are not off the menu.

Also, the differences between the two girls is sort of obvious.  Scarlet is happy most of the time.

TS4_x64 2018-09-28 01-49-20-22.jpg

Adrianna is not.  She’s usually tense or walks around like she always steps in dog crap.

TS4_x64 2018-09-28 01-55-23-71.jpg

It’s never to soon to learn gardening.  If she wants to make money, level 1 is not for her.  She needs at least a level 8.

TS4_x64 2018-09-28 02-01-41-23.jpg

Homework usually gets done in the middle of the night.  Both girls cannot function after school until they’ve had dinner and a nap.

TS4_x64 2018-09-28 02-09-06-69.jpg

Scarlet was late to school.  She was reading her 2nd of 3 books needed for her aspiration.

Adrianna is stuck at earning Silver at a Dinner Party.  Between work and school, there just isn’t any time for one.

TS4_x64 2018-09-28 02-16-26-29.jpg

Both have A’s, so they might be taking some time off school to work on skills.

This is where I stopped for the night, so I get to go play more if work is slow today.

Here’s stuff I didn’t bother adding into the chapter.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

It was a very productive couple of weeks.  I really love the skill build bonus you get for being a Llamacorn Scout and that is basically the goal every kid should have in this game.

TS4_x64 2018-09-28 08-45-40-10.jpg

Scarlet finally finds time to read her third book.

TS4_x64 2018-09-28 08-46-09-16.jpg

I thought we would let them hang out in alien form for the rest of the chapter.  This is Adrianna.

TS4_x64 2018-09-28 08-46-33-28.jpg

Oh, how I’m going to miss my money trees when Scarlet is forced to leave.

TS4_x64 2018-09-28 08-47-33-79.jpg

Getting in some exercise.  I bought this for Aaron, but no matter how much he uses it, he never loses weight.

TS4_x64 2018-09-28 08-48-06-39.jpg

Scarlet.  I left her reading for so long, she almost peed herself and starved.

TS4_x64 2018-09-28 08-48-50-17.jpg

Everyone is back in the green.  Aaron is talking to each girl about their phase.  I’m not sure what they are (it’s the same one for both), but they need Aaron to hug them and help them with homework.

TS4_x64 2018-09-28 08-49-24-67.jpg

Next milestone requires Scarlet to get levels in logic.

TS4_x64 2018-09-28 08-51-49-13.jpg

Adrianna topped her teen job.  Scarlet is always late, so I doubt she’ll get her 3rd promotion.

TS4_x64 2018-09-28 08-59-14-17.jpg

Not only does Scarlet need to craft something on the woodworking bench, but she also has to upgrade something.  Her handiness is level 2, so she will be stuck here for a while.

TS4_x64 2018-09-28 09-16-28-52.jpg

Volunteering with the family for the first time.

TS4_x64 2018-09-28 09-32-22-65.jpg

Homework buddies.

TS4_x64 2018-09-28 09-33-01-24.jpg

Aaron got his first raise after maxing his career.

TS4_x64 2018-09-28 09-07-44-97.jpg

Scarlet finally is able to upgrade the toilet.  She continued on with her aspiration until we got to the part about launching/upgrading the rocket ship.  Since, she has to do that anyway, she will just wait.

TS4_x64 2018-09-28 09-35-13-72.jpg

Hmm.

TS4_x64 2018-09-28 09-35-53-04.jpg

Yep, it was their mom.

TS4_x64 2018-09-28 09-41-22-39.jpg

Nothing is really going on.  Just homework and freewill on triple speed until birthdays.

TS4_x64 2018-09-28 09-45-44-68.jpg

And maybe some of this.  It was a hard day at school.

TS4_x64 2018-09-28 09-48-04-96.jpg

It’s Harvestfest again and they have a buttload of gnomes to appease, which they all did in record time.

TS4_x64 2018-09-28 09-51-29-48.jpg

Adrianna made the Grand Meal and they were very thankful during dinner.  They had completed the requirements by 4, so they had a free night.

TS4_x64 2018-09-28 09-55-10-44.jpg

So, they went out with Robin.

TS4_x64 2018-09-28 09-58-55-51.jpg

The girls did their extra credit work while the timer counted down.

TS4_x64 2018-09-28 10-08-38-92.jpg

Adrianna baked her cake and then it was time for her birthday.

TS4_x64 2018-09-28 10-09-43-76.jpg

And my mod didn’t give her a third trait.  Poo.  I let her have Perfectionist.

Bought during the teen years:

  • Morning Sim
  • Independent

Emotional Traits

  • Responsible
  • Mediator
  • Compassionate

TS4_x64 2018-09-28 10-32-11-53.jpg

Adrianna is spending her time behind the bar for work.

TS4_x64 2018-09-28 10-35-04-14.jpg

TS4_x64 2018-09-28 10-37-58-61.jpg

Scarlet needs to up her emotional control, so she does a lot of jogging.  Then after school she works in the garden until she has to go to work.

TS4_x64 2018-09-28 10-39-43-30.jpg

Doing her daily work tasks is fun for the fridge, not so much for Adrianna who would rather be asleep.

TS4_x64 2018-09-28 10-41-31-97.jpg

Her emotional control is finally in range for a good trait.  Her last positive one, by the way.

TS4_x64 2018-09-28 10-45-14-56.jpg TS4_x64 2018-09-28 10-46-12-14.jpg

Saturday gave out two promotions.  One was very unexpected.  Scarlet is never under an hour late.

TS4_x64 2018-09-28 10-49-32-50.jpg

I forgot about her for a bit, but found her doing some skilling.

TS4_x64 2018-09-28 10-50-02-85.jpg

Of course, the girls were upset at being cold, so Aaron comes in from the bees to turn on the thermostat.

TS4_x64 2018-09-28 10-50-26-89.jpg

More mixology.

TS4_x64 2018-09-28 10-53-05-90.jpg

I can’t believe the day is here for Scarlet.

TS4_x64 2018-09-28 11-03-19-38.jpg

She promptly puts on her bathing suit and I get a freezing to death notification.  Seriously.  She becomes Outgoing.
