January 9th Post

January 9, 2018

Today’s post will be late. I’m hoping it will be up later tonight or tomorrow.

Sorry, I was out of town for 11 days and thought I had a chapter for today ready to go. I did not.

0.10 ~ Life And Death

January 5, 2018

00-10-00

Welcome back to the Kaliedo Legacy. Last time we had portraits painted, favourite meals were devoured, children were tutored, promotions were had, the quads aged up, a book with no name showed up, skill challenges were completed, and the last twins aged up as well.

00-10-01

Aspen is now on 8/10 and killing it.

00-10-02

+Point. Since Birch completed the skill challenges last chapter.

00-10-03

To celebrate, Birch made the most expensive and hard to get the ingredients for recipe there is.

00-10-04

It looks like he was making a family sized serving of the dish.

00-10-05

Sycamore gets to try the first dish of ambrosia. Weird looking dish. Never made it before.

I also learnt that he has to take it from the fridge, to leave it on the counter or in their inventory they only have the option to clean up left overs. Which is odd.

00-10-06

Willow: Why don’t I get the super special dish?

Suck it Willow. The only reason Sycamore is eating it is because I’m sick of everyone freaking out over all the ghosts. One less ghost will hopefully help.

00-10-07

Birch was also allowed to make a plate for himself. This is a Try-Everything Legacy after all and I want to see how long I can keep a game born Sim alive. Birch will hopefully be around until the last generation.

Birch is eligible for points until two sims from generation one die of old age. As the oldest, he should have died before anyone else, but sometimes that’s not the case in the Sims. Waiting for all of generation one to die seems like a really long time, and for just aspen to die, well they’re really close in age and might not be the best judge to see approximately how long Birch would live.

However, either at the end of this legacy or at the end of his life, he will get a point for every generation lived through, but he has to stay a young adult throughout the entire legacy. Aka, he can’t get skill point or career points once Aspen and someone else dies, but he will get 10 points if he lives to the end of Generation 10’s lives. If he dies in Generation 3 then he gets 2 points. Clear as mud?

I feel if he lived that long and through all the expansions and moves, he deserves a bit of recognition.

Be prepared for Birch to hang around FOREVER.

00-10-08

Sycamore did this awesome poof of smoke up in the air,

00-10-09

then plopped onto the ground as a fully flesh and blood teenaged boy.

00-10-10

Unfortunately for Sycamore no one, not even his twin seemed to care that he had changed.

00-10-11

His face is worth it though.

00-10-12

+Point. Ambrosiaing a ghost.

00-10-13

Birch literally just sat in a poof of sparkles and cloud dust and his age reset.

Thanks Birch that was interesting.

00-10-14

Someone is not impressed with their promotion. She looks like an angry librarian.

00-10-15

I forgot Willow could sabotage, which she couldn’t do a child, so she is helping Juniper get her electric repair skill challenge for handiness.

00-10-16

I still don’t have a clue what to do with Sycamore. Ghostieness or no ghostieness.

00-10-17

Cedar is making some cool small paintings. That’s all I have him doing right now is small paintings unless he gets the jump on me and auto-does something else.

00-10-18

Ash does this when he isn’t sleeping or eating. I’m glad I send him out of the house to annoy the townies with.

00-10-20

Birch finishes the final skill challenge for cooking.

00-10-21

+Point. And Birch promptly stopped cooking with this, as the fridge has so much food, it’s spoiling faster then a family of 12 can eat.

00-10-22

That’s right Birch’s 75th meal prepared was Ambrosia.

00-10-23

 

Cedar: Mom, you wrote a lot of books. What made them best sellers for you?

 

00-10-24

Glowing, levitating, ball of rainbow cloudness is a GO!

00-10-25

I debated for a bit about doing this, but everyone is freaking out at the ghosts still, so we’re now down to two ghosts, and I figured Spring deserved to be back to flesh after all I put her through.

00-10-26

 

Cedar: How many books did you write, mom?

I think she’s a little preoccupied there, Cedar.

 

00-10-27

 

Cedar: How long did it take for you to get recognized?

I love that Cedar just keeps talking to Spring, despite the fact she is ignoring him. There is no one else at that table.

 

00-10-28

Wow, I think I made the right choice about returning her to flesh and blood.

I mastercontrolled her back up to how old she was. She would have gained more then 10 days back if I left it, and I liked her natural age.

00-10-29

She’s cute and old.

00-10-30

 

Cedar: Oh I can write another book about this!

Spring: Aspen, look I’m alive again!

Aspen: Okay, sure mom.

 

00-10-31

Willow had a wish to throw a location party. I obliged but no one showed up and I never got the notification the party was starting soon. Tommy Song came because Aspen invited him to the swimming pool.

00-10-32

And then he and Aspen had a conversation while Darwin and some random townie in a top hat watched Ash play for tips.

00-10-33

Darwin: You know I’m the boy Hazel was supposed to make friends with forever ago.

It’s not my fault she doesn’t talk to you in school.

 

00-10-34

Aspen finally rolled the wish.

00-10-35

And Tommy was more then happy to accept.

00-10-36

Okay that’s adorable. Looks like Tommy didn’t flirt with anyone else before he and Aspen had started dating.

00-10-37

We of course hosted the wedding ceremony right then and there at Willow’s failed to happen party with Ash playing music in the background.

00-10-38

It was quite a romantic ceremony.

00-10-39

Until Nicholas from home decided to get creepy with Tommy at the pool.

00-10-40

Much better. I also matched his root colour to his eyebrows, cuz for some reason those were fiery red.

00-10-40a

Generation One’s first spouse is Tommy Song.  He is a fun kind of ball of traits. He is Grumpy and Inappropriate, while being a Loner who is a Vehicle Enthusiastic, who can’t help steal things due to his Kleptomania. He loves Hot Pink, Latin Music, and Fruit Parfait. His Life Time Wish is to Live In The Lap Of Luxury, which means he wants the family net worth to be worth more then $100,000.

00-10-41

While the failure party was happening, Juniper was still working on her jogging and athletic skill.

00-10-42

Birch maxed his Gardening skill, which means +Point. Yep giving myself a point every time a Sim manages to max a skill and all the skill challenges, cuz they worked hard for that shit.

00-10-43

Uh…. what? Birch has maxed Gardening and Cooking, skill challenges included. That’s only two out of the three skills he needs.

00-10-44

I was scrolling through his skills and realized what had happened. Since I use a mod that shows the hidden skills, the game took his maxed out hidden homework skill and thought it was a normal skill.

We’re not getting the point here until he completes an actual skill and not just a hidden skill.

00-10-45

At least she stays consistently crazy. The screen still stays off the majority of the time she uses it.

00-10-46

Look at how cute she is!

00-10-47

WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

00-10-48

+Point. At 92 days old with no life fruit eaten she manages to complete the writing skill challenges and did so while raising 10 children.

Also I just noticed that she switched from Fiction Novelist to Mystery Novelist. So, I guess the newest genre of five novels written overwrites the older genre of five novels written. Good to know.

00-10-49

Juniper and Birch have a surprisingly good relationship with one another despite him practically raising his much younger sister.

00-10-50

Like a really good close relationship.

00-10-51

Nicholas has started working on the fishing challenges.

00-10-52

He’s already mastered Fishing, which I don’t believe I showed since he needed it for his job not for his Lifetime Wish.

Apparently there are 20 types of fish in the base game, which is handy to know, and since the number won’t increase when I add expansion packs, it’ll make the skill challenge easier to complete with expansions installed.

00-10-53

Both Spring and Nicholas are on a roll. Guess they don’t like to be overshadowed by their children.

00-10-54

She has a long way to go before she can claim a point here. I doubt Nicholas and Spring will get points in Fishing and Painting but it gives them something to do besides wish for grandchildren.

00-10-55

Aspen I know Tommy’s favourite colour is hot pink, but you don’t need to paint his face in it.

00-10-56

Tommy is glitched to high heaven when it comes to his job. One he has no athletic skill and is enemies with most of his accomplices at work. He’s currently level 5 in the criminal career. But when it comes time to go to his job, no car pool comes up and the games just says “It’s not time for work yet, come back in 1 hour.” and when his work time starts he still doesn’t go to work and the game just says “It’s not time for work yet, come back in 24 hours.”

Currently I am using Mastercontroller to force him to go to work. He’s always late since I send him when I notice it’s his work time.

I’m not as concerned with getting Tommy to the top of his career as he’s glitched, and it’s not related to his Lifetime Wish. He’s literally in it just to make money towards his Lifetime Wish.

00-10-57

Birch was out doing who the hell knows what, when I realized he was on the lot stolen from Aurora Skies.

00-10-58

I’ve heard you can woohoo in this bad boy.

00-10-59

He popped the question.

00-10-60

The –I think- elder lady obliged.

00-10-61

And that is how Birch lost his virginity.

00-10-61a

and got an amusing moodlet for 8 hours.

00-10-62

Aspen decided it was time to celebrate her birthday to adulthood while Birch celebrated his adulthood in a different manor.

00-10-63

Both Willow and Cedar came out to celebrate with her. Rowan gave no shits his much older sister was growing older.

00-10-64

Then Spring decided to add to the chaos.

00-10-65

I am sad.

00-10-66

While only two people cared that Aspen had celebrated her birthday, everyone on the lot ran out to Spring.

00-10-67

Big ass tombstone, nice! +2 Points

00-10-68

Everyone was sad, I was sad. Spring was sad and begged for her life probably because she was pissed off she didn’t get to keep the days added to her from the ambrosia.

00-10-69

This was Spring’s last painting. It’s like she knew.

00-10-70

There was a house a couple lots down that had no one living in it, so I bulldozed it, the family bought it and turned it into a family graveyard.

Spring got a better desk and computer then the ones she used while living to use when she chooses to haunt us.

00-10-71

It’s quite pretty, even if it is a sad affair.

00-10-72

Spring Kaliedo was born in the Pink Generation of my Rainbowacy back in 2012. She was born during a baby glitch that produced 60+ babies and due to the lag, I summoned meteorites and those that survived the destruction got to live on in the Rainbowacy, which I stopped updating at generation 3.

Out of all the Sims that died in the meteorite crash of ‘12 Spring was lucky to be drawn out of a hat in 2017 and got to restart the legacy as a Try Everything Legacy. She married the first man she met, had 8 wonderful children and 2 others who she snuck in. She managed to complete the writing challenges and her lifetime wish on a computer whose screen stayed black 98% of the time. She got our first unique death in the legacy. Spring was a rather quiet founder being tied to the computer most of the time. She lived until the ripe old age of 93.

Spring’s Point Count:
-Portrait completed
-She died the unique death of electrocution
-Was brought back from the dead and was readded to the active household
-Had and raised quadruplets
-Spring ate her favourite meal of Tri-Tip Steak
-Was returned to flesh and blood by means of ambrosia
-Completed the Writing skill and the skill challenges associated with the skill
-Received the biggest tombstone for 2 points.
-Completed her lifetime wish
Total Points Earned: 10 Points

 Edit/ Forgot that she completed her lifetime wish

00-10-73

But life goes on and despite losing her mother, Aspen helps out her co-workers.

00-10-74

She got a big relationship boost with her co-workers as well as a jump on her promotion meter.

00-10-75

Which means she is level 9!

00-10-76

Pine has taken to watching the cooking channel at all times, and I have an idea for his lifetime wish.

00-10-77

These two are going to have interesting looking kidlets.

00-10-78

And they finally got to do their wedding/first time woohoo.

00-10-79

Nicholas is taking Spring’s death extraordinarily hard.

00-10-80

Cedar and Willow don’t seem to care their mother passed on.

00-10-81

Tommy managed to get a promotion despite all the problems I have getting him to work.

00-10-82

Pine is Good, so I had him donate some monies.

00-10-83

Plumbob Pine, don’t look so thrilled about doing that.

00-10-84

He gets +30 for 24 hours which is nice. He donated $1,000 so we will check what the smaller amounts give.

00-10-85

Birch gets a bonus for having a teddy bear in his inventory while he sleeps.

00-10-86

I’m glad he didn’t mourn her the first time she died cuz this is so painful to watch.

00-10-87

Everyone is on the mourning train.

00-10-88

Aspen got another book opportunity.

00-10-89

Willow was throwing another party, this time a Birthday party for the twins when Spring, Cedar, and Hazel all showed up in the invite list.

Cedar and Hazel showed up cuz I made them, but Spring didn’t make an appearance, which is probably a good thing.

00-10-90

Rowan made an awesome catch on his birthday.

00-10-91

I thought these were rare to be honest. Maybe they increased the spawn rate of them. I believe Rowan is level 5 or 6 in collecting right now.

00-10-92

That is a very high valued beetle.

00-10-93

 

Rowan: Why am I doing this on my birthday? My mom just died!

Seriously, everyone is just sad all the time.

 

00-10-94

Juniper, not to be beaten, also completes a skill challenge.

00-10-95

She has only ran for her cardio workouts. So, running alone isn’t enough to complete the cardio challenge, but it did complete 79% of the needed time towards the 75 hours.

00-10-96

I force her to jog everywhere, including to her birthday party.

00-10-97

Everyone else got there hours before the party started and just chilled around waiting.

00-10-98

Birch decided to stop playing tag to mourn his mom.

00-10-99

After a roaring game of tag, the twins finally age up. Since the only tables were inside the small and only building, I used family funds to buy more tables for outside.

This is a really bare and empty city square.

00-10-100

Since Rowan hasn’t been to school since he was a young child, he decided to remain a child. At least I have someone else to start tag games with now.

00-10-101

That girl in the green skirt is just way to excited.

00-10-102

Since Rowan is collecting gems/metals/bugs for me I gave him a stupid easy lifetime wish to complete. He will be playing tag to complete it. Ash currently has more friends then Rowan due to him playing the guitar so it’ll be interesting to see who hits 20 friends first.

00-10-103

Juniper goes next with a lot less then enthused crowd. You can’t tell but Juniper had more people around her cake then Rowan did.

00-10-104

Juniper never went to school as a teenager since I either had her jogging or repair/upgrading stuff around the home.

Is it odd that both twins got one of Birch’s traits?

00-10-105

She’s smashing.

00-10-106

Seriously, the people love Juniper. Plus the Grim Reaper showed up for this party too, since him and Willow are apparently friends.

00-10-107

Updated trait card time. Juniper is set for her lifetime wish to become an astronaut. She’s also 8/10 in athletic and 7or8/10 in handiness.

00-10-108

Rowan is good to go with the collecting challenges, and his lifetime wish.

This picture was a pain in the butt to take.

00-10-109

+Point. We finish out this chapter with a good portrait of Tommy.

Points This Chapter: 7

Current Points: 24

Join us next time for: Moar birthdays, the heir is revealed

0.9 ~ Full House

January 2, 2018

00-09-00

Last time on the Kaliedo Legacy; Aspen was getting promotions like crazy, the townies all disappeared into the ground, the quads aged up, I forced Nicholas to go to work to get his final promotion, Aspen started dating Tommy Song, Nicholas retired, Sycamore and Willow aged up as well, and so did Juniper and Rowan.

00-09-01

Nicholas keeps forgetting he’s vegetarian and keeps eating meat then getting sick. Stupid Sim.

Pine: I want to write a book.

Seriously, Pine just go do it. I have no plans for you right now.

00-09-02

+Point. I wanted one of Aspen out of uniform. Spring did a wonderful job on both of these.

00-09-03

Rowan has started collecting. He finds a lot of monarch butterflies and cockroaches at the moment.

00-09-04

+Point. Birch finally learnt how to make his favourite food and ate it. Yep giving myself a point for the first time they eat their favourite meal. My point calculation is gonna be slightly different then the official rules.

This is really hard to accomplish with 12 sims in the household.

00-09-05

Ash has been tied to painting since the violin from the store isn’t children usable.

00-09-06

Rowan hasn’t been to school except for the first couple days of childhood. What makes the game think I’m going to send him now that he’s a teen.

00-09-07

Aspen has reached the branching stage. We obviously went for the Forensic Analyst route.

00-09-08

She is now level 6/10 and is definitely competing with her dad to see who can get through their careers the fastest.

00-09-09

We got a laptop. Then I promptly forgot about it and bought Aspen another one to do reports on.

00-09-10

She has been tutoring Willow to try to complete the logic challenges. Sadly the child tutoring goes up but the generic sim tutoring does not.

00-09-11

Birch is making good progress on his second skill, cooking.

00-09-12

I thought the 28 recipes were all the recipes but according the the skill journal it’s only 75% of the recipes.

00-09-13

The other two skill challenges seem weird. One is for 50 meals the other for 75 meals. Seems a little redundant, but doable.

00-09-14

After that it was finally time for the Quadruplets to age up. Hazel does the honors first.

I’m not even trying to cake them. There’s way to many birthdays and kids right now to keep track of.

00-09-15

I gave Hazel perfectionist. She will be going for the perfect aquarium. Hoping she rolls it soon.

00-09-16

She’s cute.

00-09-17

Very cute. I thought she was 90% Nicholas, but she’s Spring with Nicholas’ colouring.

00-09-18

Pine decided to go next.

00-09-19

Pine was given Family-Oriented. I’m trying to make him as good as possible.

00-09-20

He’s adorable. Still wish I knew where that hair colour came from though, and yes I checked. Birch’s has slightly lighter tips, but other then that it’s the same.

00-09-21

Ash got to go next surrounded by two of his quad.

00-09-22

I dunno where the trait selector picture went, but I gave him friendly. Hoping to have him do super popular or the music/artist Life Time Wish.

00-09-23

Cedar aged up in the same spot Juniper did.

00-09-24

I gave the poor bastard Loner. In a house of 12 sims, it’s not gonna happen often.

00-09-25

The Quads so far are quite adorable… well Ash isn’t bad looking, just a little strained looking.

00-09-26

STOP FACING THE WALL WHEN AGING UP!

I have a feeling this is going to be the spot to age up in.

00-09-27

Trait card time. Ash is definitely a good mix of both his parents.

00-09-28

Cedar remains adorable as a ghost.

00-09-29

as does Hazel.

00-09-30

But Pine is just adorable.

00-09-31

Birch is knocking out the skill challenges. I basically have him gardening or cooking right now.

00-09-32

Just one more to go and he’s got less then 100 to go.

00-09-33

So…… Spring does two gorgeous ones of Aspen, but for Birch she goes too close-up for one and the second one is green. Yeah not getting the point until I see a nice one.

00-09-34

Aspen is working on the chess tournament. Minzi Cho lost and was sent packing.

00-09-35

I saw this in the kitchen. It has no name. I don’t even know where this came from.

00-09-36

And still no name. That is weird.

00-09-37

Juniper is no longer going to school as I don’t care what her last trait will be. So, she jogs to one end of Hidden Springs then to the day spa, gets a massage, and comes home to work on repairing everything her family is breaking.

00-09-38

Ash is also no longer going to school. He usually goes to the bistro for breakfast then plays for tips until curfew. The townies seem to like him.

00-09-39

Birch knocks out another skill challenge.

00-09-40

Is it weird that both Birch and Nicholas completed the skill challenges at level 8 of the gardening. I should try gardening without the sprinklers and see if they complete the skill before the challenges.

00-09-41

Cedar has been writing books. Seriously, love these books. All the kids have them, and their only $20 which is way cheaper then getting everyone either a computer or a laptop. Or having to wait till a computer is free. Given that Spring is glued to it right now, they’d never get on it.

00-09-42

FINALLY. +Point. I kept the ones I liked the best.

00-09-43

Hazel has moved onto town fishing spots. Now that we have a collection helper we can see they are either on the one mountain, the graveyard, two random people’s yard, or the edge of town. Hidden Springs you disappoint me for fishing spots.

00-09-44

I would like to point out that this random lady is a friend of no one and not a chess competitor either. She was just here for one evening.

00-09-45

These two are still very much in love. Nicholas constantly rolls wishes to woohoo with Spring, kiss Spring, hug Spring, etc. Spring rolls them too, but her wishes are locked with see Aspen get married, see Birch get married, and two writing wishes.

00-09-46

So glad elder’s can’t get pregnant.

00-09-47

 

Birch: I can’t garden this plant is blocking itself!

Apparently since I last played a lot, the little tiny fences have now become a weird routing thing for Sims. Sometimes Birch gets blocked by it, and other times he can garden no problem.

I had to get rid of those teeny tiny fences.

 

00-09-48

Ash has started to learn songs. Which looks exactly the same as perform, play, and play for tips (except that last one has the guitar case out front)

00-09-49

I think he’s making salad? My insane sim is usually happy most of the time despite being grumpy.

00-09-50

 

Sebastian: I won’t give you a promotion if you beat me.

Aspen: Why is my boss the next chess competitor?

It is kinda weird. Sebastian passed away shortly after this, and I haven’t checked to see who her new boss is. She did beat him regardless.

 

00-09-51

 

Juniper: Someone broke the stereo.

Yeah, probably you. Given you use it all the time and the only one who uses it.

00-09-52

Look Sycamore finally gets a shot at being tutored. He keeps cancelling the action. He would sit down then Aspen would join him, then cancel the action and we’d have to start the process over again.

00-09-53

Spring has completed her second skill challenge.

00-09-54

lol I just noticed it says scrapped writings. I put the title in then realized I gave her the wrong genre so had to scrap it to get her to write in the right genre.

Three more books to go before she gets the prolific writer skill challenge. She is also getting up there in age, so I hope she completes it before she passes on.

00-09-55

+Point for Spring finally being able to eat her favourite Tri-Tip Steak.

00-09-56

+Point, Willow also got to enjoy her favourite meal of Mac and Cheese. It was at this point I realized how often Willow showed up in the background of pictures.

I still don’t like you and Sycamore.

00-09-57

Birch completed his second cooking skill challenge.

00-09-58

He just has to cook 25 more meals and then he’s done the skill challenges and will probably be level 10 as well. Not bad for a young adult.

00-09-59

Look more Willow.

00-09-60

Thanks to everything breaking regularly, Juniper manages to complete her first skill challenge.

00-09-61

We need to work on her unique upgrades and the electrical repairs, but Willow will be a teen soon and will be able to sabotage the shit out of everything but the computer.

00-09-62

She’s started on her strength training, since jogging also adds to her cardio time.

00-09-63

Nicholas is such a happy old man. He’s also fishing for death fish, which I had to look up how to find, since I’ve never fished for them before. and the collection helper wasn’t showing them at all. I actually thought Hidden Springs didn’t have them. I didn’t know that they only appeared between midnight and 6am in the graveyard.

The more you know.

00-09-64

+Point for Nicholas eating his favourite Fruit Parfait.

00-09-65

Ash continues to play outside the diner. He’s slowly starting to amass tips.

00-09-66

Rowan is still running all over town for me. I don’t know if the skill is still a hidden skill, which I don’t think it is because there are skill challenges. I should remove the hidden skills revealed and see. But he’s 4/10 in the skill.

00-09-67

Aspen is now on 7/10 of her chosen career path.

00-09-68

Juniper is changing the doorbell as it’s a unique upgrade and it now sounds different then my own doorbell which is nice.

00-09-69

…. Aspen asked about tutoring her in the front yard. Willow chose the bathroom as a better place to do her homework. Willow you are an odd one.

00-09-70

 

Cedar: When are you going to make my favourite dish?

Birch: Get out of my kitchen is when!

Birch is the only one who cooks and forces other to route fail when they get to close to him. It’s his kitchen after all.

 

00-09-71

Ghosts playing tag is interesting. They just float like normal everywhere while the others run. I need to get one of the ghosts jogging to see what happens.

00-09-72

Sycamore broke into someone else’s home to do his homework. He was in a random neighbourhood and I kept trying to get him to do his homework, and he kept going inside random houses to use their table. Then since no one was home it would force him to go back outside again. Sycamore did this several times.

00-09-73

Birch was learning a new way to cook. Thankfully the pot didn’t stay glitched on his hand.

00-09-74

Eventually it was time for Sycamore and Willow’s birthdays.

00-09-75

I gave him Over-Emotional for no reason.

00-09-76

Dumbass blinked for the only photo I took. He has Spring’s eyes.

00-09-77

I have no clue why he is in his swimming trunks.

00-09-78

Willow jumped into the celebration as well.

00-09-79

I had her slack off at school the entire time and she didn’t get above a C so she developed the Snob trait.

00-09-80

No one celebrated with Sycamore, so he floated over and made sure Willow had someone to celebrate with. These two are really close.

00-09-81

Sycamore’s face vanishes 99% of the time into his hair.

00-09-82

Willow aged up prettier then I would have guessed. She has a very classical look to her.

00-09-88

The shark costume makes a reappearance in the kitchen.

I bet that costume is disgusting by now. I do have laundry machines installed from the store so I could throw down some and the hampers, which I’ve been tempted to do, but I kinda want to wait for ambitions and it seems like it will be a big pain with a 12 sim household.

00-09-89

We end this chapter with Nicholas showing stages of dementia. He walked around for hours like this before I made him put his clothes back on.

0.8 ~ Aging Up

December 29, 2017

00-08-00

Welcome back to the Kaliedo Legacy! Last time there was a lot of skilling up the toddlers, Spring and Nicholas decided to be autonomous and got pregnant again giving us twins, Aspen grew up, Spring completed her life time wish, our garden stopped working making us replant it, and Spring and Nicholas got old.

00-08-01

I’m actually surprised Birch and Aspen didn’t have this one already. Normally this is all I see.

00-08-02

I wish we got bugs for this, like the plumbing opportunity.

00-08-03

Aspen gets this opportunity almost every second shift she works. She tends to stay late when it asks her.

00-08-04

Spring is continuing to work on the writing skill challenges with the computer screen only working half the time.

00-08-05

Nicholas is working on his fishing skill with Birch or one of the other kids often.

00-08-06

I see this pop up so much.

00-08-07

But it is making her get promotions like crazy. She’s already 3/10 in her field.

00-08-08

Nice, and I believe that’s a hidden trait that can be passed onto any kids she has now.

00-08-09

Soooooo, Quinton came over. Aspen has a wish to question him and even if I resetsim him, he still comes over like this. He will interact with other Sims, but I can’t get any of them to interact with him.

00-08-10

Books one day, staying late the next.

00-08-11

I have Rowan fishing and not going to school. We’ve started stocking the pond with Birch and Nicholas’ catches. Children apparently can’t use the collection helper. I am not impressed.

00-08-12

Birch has switched over to his super bunny athletic wear as his favourite outfit right now.

But the garden is working again so that’s a bonus.

00-08-13

The quads got to age up. Dunno why Pine was in the writing nook, the quads finished their skilings so I shoved them into the walkers until they aged up.

00-08-14

I gave Pine Frugal. Figured he can be the good kid that also wants to save the environment without having the Ambitions Eco-Friendly trait.

00-08-15

Pine is adorable. He also has Birch’s hair colour which is weird.

00-08-16

Updated trait card shows that he writes and rolls wishes to write a lot.

00-08-17

Hazel grew up next.

00-08-18

I gave her Angler. She will probably be doing the fishing challenges and a fishing related Life Time Wish.

00-08-19

She grew up to have a glorious mustache.

00-08-20

Couldn’t get her into position for the mustache for her trait card.

00-08-21

Still pretty sure she’s 90% Nicholas.

00-08-22

Ash decided to go next.

00-08-23

Gave our guitarist, artistic. According to the trait “Artistic Sims are naturally gifted artists with a paint brush. They also make pretty good writers and musicians!” Birch has the virtuoso trait so it’ll be interesting to see if Ash levels faster with the artistic trait or if its redundant.

00-08-24

Ash grew up classy.

00-08-25

Ash was the only kid I took a pic of running.

00-08-26

Mandatory picture of a toddler being stretched.

00-08-27

Cedar was given Bookworm as a birthday present.

00-08-28

His face vanished into his hair.

Juniper: Ceeeedar! Move, you’re blocking the chair.

He’s a ghost Juniper, just push it through him.

00-08-29

Here’s a better shot of his face and the pattern on his sweater.

00-08-30

He’s a cutie.

00-08-31

I forgot that the block table builds handiness when they’re kids.

00-08-32

All the children are sleeping. It’s so much easier to just fill their queues and just watch to make sure they go to bed. Does anyone know of a good mod for no ghost reactions?

These silly sims keep cancelling out their queues because they freak out when they see a ghost. That includes the ghosts seeing a ghost.

00-08-33

Aspen was on potty training duty this time.

00-08-34

I don’t remember who her boss is but they are not close. Her only friend outside the family seems to be Quinton.

00-08-35

Hazel got an opportunity that I keep forgetting about.

00-08-36

The birth of the new twins gave him another 5 days on top of the 12 days, so I master controlled him back to work. Since he would probably be dead before he was allowed back to work.

00-08-37

Someone is already on 4/10. I could have sworn she was ambitious at the rate she is going.

00-08-38

Despite never fishing, Pine seems to be enthused to talk about fishing with his Angler sister.

I think Birch is either reading a fishing book or a recipe.

00-08-39

I just love this new reading nook.

00-08-40

Spring: I’m too old for this.

You guys woohooed, you guys get to deal with them.

00-08-41

Or dump them in the walkers.

Spring: And now I want to hold him again.

The downside of the walkers and playpen is that everyone keeps picking up the toddlers in it.

00-08-42

One step closer to Omni plants. This took way longer then it should have cuz the plants stopped working.

00-08-43

Aspen got this opportunity. I am not impressed with it. I can only send Aspen between the hours of 10am-2pm Monday to Friday, but she works Monday to Friday to 9am-3pm.

00-08-44

Our paperboy passed out from exhaustion. And townies are still being eaten by the ground. I think that thought bubble is a Stephanie Moore.

00-08-45

Juniper and Ash get alone surprisingly well

00-08-46

I had Aspen invite Quinton to a lot to see if that would work. They went into this small crevice and Quinton was holding his new daughter with Stephanie Moore whilst in the ground.

At this point I reset the entire town using Master Controller. It seemed to fix the issue.

00-08-47

Birch has been cooking furiously when he’s not gardening. He’s on 7/10 in the skill.

00-08-48

Ash rolled a wish to play chess with Aspen, so they did. Aspen won.

00-08-49

Tommy Song here called and asked Aspen out on a date. I’m pretty sure he’s in the criminal career wear. I find this relationship ironic.

00-08-50

Ash, why did you run all the way to some random community lot to do your homework?

Ash: The house was too busy.

I understand that.

00-08-51

These two are now going steady. Gonna see where Aspen’s wishes take her right now.

     

00-08-52

Birch went to a bunch of fruits and vegetables. Of course we have to have naked pregnant women around.

00-08-53

Then he went to get recipe books.

00-08-54

Nicholas can do this. He makes things produce a loud annoying noise. I don’t like it.

00-08-55

Nicholas: I retired and I’m tired!

Nicholas has retired from the field, and where I got sad. If Nicholas had stayed on parental leave for the remaining 10+ days he would have gotten $1,500+ for his days of work. But when he retired he only gets $260 for each day.

Things I learnt, leave them in the career until the can return to work and hope they don’t die from the log wait to get their last promotion.  You get way more money for not working.

00-08-56

Ella, the person who Spring chatted with one time and then wrote a biography for, cheered for Yetis as Nicholas got his retirement celebration.

Do they not have a retirement sign? Or something work related signs?

00-08-57

Birch has started to flip things like a boss while cooking.

00-08-58

Birch has switched to reading on his own bed now that I upgraded Aspen and his beds and gave Juniper and Rowan the old beds.

00-08-59

Nicholas and Spring woohoo or be romantic with each other when they are left to their own devices. I’m glad that they are elders and can’t have babies anymore.

00-08-60

I forgot that bed was still here. It’s probably going to be on the lot for all eternity.

00-08-61

Random shot that proves that the family does do stuff together. Nicholas has wishes to max out fishing and handiness so we are trying.

00-08-62

We bought a tub for the many wishes Juniper rolls for a bubble bath.Weird child.

00-08-63

The last set of twins finally age up.

00-08-64

I gave Sycamore the neat trait. For no reason other then to help clean up.

00-08-65

Here he is all aged up.

00-08-66

He’s an odd kid.

00-08-67

Sycamore is very gaunt looking with a very long forehead. Luckily the hairstyle makes him not look so old and tired.

00-08-68

Willow ages next. I know they got through the TSAL and the walking, talking, pooping skills. Dunno about anything else though.

00-08-69

I gave her technophobe. Juniper has to do handiness for the military career so might as well have someone around to break the electronics.

00-08-70

OH!

00-08-71

Wow, did she ever get the worse features off of both her parents. I played a lot in stylist with her.

00-08-72

THE SHARK RETURNS!

00-08-73

Aspen has reached level 5/10 and gets to choose her chosen track when she completes this level. She still can’t do the logic opportunity at the school since she still works Monday to Friday.

00-08-74

She also got our first police car!

00-08-75

Look Quinton is fixed, and so are the other townies.

Juniper: Who is this guy?

Because he was showing up as a thought bubble Juniper, Rowan and younger don’t know him yet.

00-08-76

We finally fulfilled the wish Aspen has had to Question Quinton. Quinton is listed as an old friend, they’re partners, they’ve known each other since they were children, and he still visits every day despite being married.

Aspen: Uh huh… so you were with me on the day of the crime.

Quinton: We were the responding unit.

I honestly don’t see how she could get anything from him that she already doesn’t know.

00-08-77

Juniper decided to interrupt the moment by aging up.

Ash: I’m too tired for this.

Nicholas: Tooooooooot!

00-08-78

Mandatory stretched child-teen picture.

00-08-79

I gave Junipter the Handy trait. She’s gonna be ready for her military career when she’s a young adult.

00-08-80

Thanks for facingthe fridge, Juniper.

Nicholas: WHOOOO!

Ash: IS IT TIME FOR BED YET?!

Cedar: Juniper is blocking the fridge.

Cedar you’re a ghost, just go through her. Routing fails on ghosts confuse me when they just float through everything.

00-08-81

Then Rowan had his birthday. Nicholas has a clear favourite.

Nicholas: I already partied for the one I love.

Cedar: Yay, Rowan!

Ash: I’m trying to go to bed here!

Juniper: YAY for my twin!

00-08-82

Since Rowan has only been to school like twice, and has been fishing since, he obviously got a random trait. Weirdly it gave him charismatic. He barely talks to his family and has no outside friends. Okie Dokie then.

00-08-83

Rowan: Dad, look I’m big now.

Nicholas: You are blocking my way to my food.

I feel the love, Nicholas, I feel the love.

00-08-84

We have updated trait cards.

00-08-85

If he’s not collecting, he is fishing. I love these two.

00-08-86

We end this chapter with Quinton, returning Aspen’s questioning with Questioning of his own.

Quinton: So, you’re saying you were with me when the crime happened?

Aspen: You pretty much live here, Quinton, of course I was with you. I’m always with you unless I’m here.

I wish he hadn’t marry someone else.

0.7 ~ Quadruplets

December 26, 2017

00-07-00

Welcome back to the Kaliedo Legacy. Last time we got a boat load of points. Spring finally died of electrocution and we brought her back, Spring and Nicholas had twins Rowan and Juniper neither or which are ghosties, so we tried immediately afterwards and ended up with QUADRUPLETS! Birch maxed out the bookstore career, and Nicholas maxed out gardening, while getting the next opportunity towards omni plants.

00-07-01

We had enough money to add a kitchen. The photo room is just an empty room where I get the trait card photos.

00-07-02

These two are stilling hanging out. Birch was immediately forced to quit his job at the bookstore. We need all hands on deck for this one.

00-07-03

Nicholas: Rowan, daddy wants to cry.

You’re lucky your oldest two are either a young adult or almost a young adult.

00-07-04

Birch took those fish in again.

00-07-05

Holy crap those royalties.

00-07-06

Another mystery to hopefully get over the 4,000 Spring needs for her Lifetime Wish.

00-07-07

Juniper has started on the TSAL.

00-07-08

I am not impressed. He is 12 days away from his next shift and he’d would have gotten to level 10 on Friday. BOO!

00-07-09

This confused the crap out of me and I thought the game was glitching. In truth it was Stones Throw Greenhouse. The place spawns seeds like crazy including special and rare seeds.

00-07-10

I didn’t get any pictures of Birch at the greenhouse but he did get this opportunity.

00-07-11

Level 10 finally!

00-07-12

It’s been all hands on deck with the Quads.

00-07-13

We got 3 goldfish. We sold them since they were normal quality.

00-07-14

Look we had birthdays! I totally forgot to take photos of them aging up.

00-07-15

Hazel is adorable.

00-07-16

I think she is like 90% Nicholas.

00-07-17

Ash looks terrified 100% of the time.

00-07-18

Cedar is cute.

00-07-19

I think he’s a good mix of his parents, but it’s hard to tell right now.

00-07-20

And little Pine brings up the rear.

00-07-21

We have resorted back to the Toodler Walkers for this. Between Aspen at school, Nicholas and Birch doing the garden, and Spring’s writing there isn’t a lot of time for four almost adults to teach them.

00-07-22

Aspen helps out a lot though. One problem I’ve noticed is the Sims are really into picking up and taking the toddlers out of their walkers if they have nothing in their queue. It’s annoying and something you have to watch.

00-07-23

This sums up the situation nicely. Poor Cedar.

00-07-24

We planted all those special and rare seeds we got from Stones Throw Greenhouse. We got 42 rare and special seeds from the one time Birch went there.

00-07-25

EVERYONE IS ASLEEP AT ONCE. It lasted half an hour then Aspen got up to get ready for school.

00-07-26

WUT THE FUCK SPRING!

Spring: I rolled a wish for a child, and NRaas’ Woohooer mod allows for Nicholas and I to do it autonomously.

By the way this is her first wish to have a child. She rolled gender wishes for Birch and Aspen when she was preggers with them, and I think also for Rowan and Juniper’s pregnancy she had a gender wish, but did not for the Quads. She also didn’t roll a wish for the gender of this pregnancy either, just that she wanted a child.

00-07-27

These two are adorable, and I keep clicking on the wrong one. As children they are getting different haircuts so I can tell the difference between them.

00-07-28

Oddly we can only put two children at a time in the playpens, and to get the second child in the other greenside has to be open. It’s kinda a pain to put down since you need the two opposite sides open.

00-07-29

This is just creepy, Aspen and Birch. Aspen decided to sleep with her eyes open and Birch decided to watch her.

00-07-30

We got Spring’s writing certificate in the mail.

00-07-31

Nice, and that should get us over the 4K marker.

00-07-32

YEP!

00-07-33

By $511 we achieved her LTW. Both Nicholas and Spring achieved their LTW’s before they became elders. We now just have to work on the writing challenges.

00-07-34

Aspen gets to age up surrounded by screaming babies.

00-07-35

I’m pretty sure that if I rolled, she either would have gotten Dislikes Children or the Family Trait. I gave her Artistic to go with the Life Time Wish she rolled as a teen.

00-07-36

Seriously Birch! You really like blocking the birthday person don’t you.

00-07-37

Due to being a computer whiz, Aspen rolled Forensics Specialist – Dynamic DNA Profiler and it seemed like a good fit with her friendly trait and having to question people. She’s also very cute. With this many sims in the house I can’t focus on her unlucky trait at this time. boo.

Aspen promptly joined the police force.

00-07-38

Spring gave birth to her babies while Aspen aged up. Yep, babies. It was gonna happen since both Nicholas and Spring have the fertility treatments rewards, so they were expected.

00-07-39

What wasn’t expected was it was only twins. I assumed I’d get triplets due to them both having the fertility reward. Guess I’ll have to play with the fertility reward with another generation.

00-07-40

Birch potty trained them all. We had two babies doing the TSAL, one playing with the abacus, and one being potty trained. Once the babies got whiny over their needs, they went back into their playpen, where their needs would go back up, and the other two got switched out. It surprisingly worked.

00-07-41

Birch keeps getting opportunities.

00-07-42

Even if being a genius doesn’t help win the logic competition.

00-07-43

I’m pretty sure at this point was Master Controller auto assigning a work uniform to fill the slot before they got a job. It didn’t shave her head so I let her keep it. Once she got to a promotion and a new uniform she started wearing the right one.

Besides she’s a snitch right now, so being an undercover prostitute works.

00-07-44

I find out quickly that the police force really love books.

00-07-45

Nicholas has 9/10 in handiness and is still working on it, while Spring has 7/10 and stopped once I got her deceased.

00-07-46

Somehow, she managed to do it… what happens if you fail this one? Does burglar activity go up?

00-07-47

Quinton is also Aspen’s partner. Dude.

00-07-48

Rowan follows in Birch’s footsteps and ages up in the potty.

00-07-49

What’s gross is that he went pee first then aged up. Birch at least stopped before he went to the bathroom then aged up on an empty toilet.

00-07-50

I gave him neat. I don’t want maids right now, so some of these kids are gonna get neat. Plus, Rowan is gonna be the collector and he pretty much has the traits he needs already.

00-07-51

Juniper was a lot more classy and aged up in her bedroom.

00-07-52

I gave her daredevil. She’s gonna be that kid on the playground who swallows a goldfish whole I bet.

00-07-53

I don’t think I’ve ever had such identical mixed gendered twins before. Rowan has a thicker jaw and a lighter skin tone. Juniper is on the right, Rowan is on the left.

00-07-54

Rowan got the hat. He also looks terrified if he has an empty queue.

00-07-55

Juniper also shares the terrified look when she has an empty queue.

00-07-56

Juniper: I thought Rowan and I were supposed to be the last of this generation.

Neither of you guys were ghosts!  I didn’t kill Spring just for there to be no ghostie babies.

00-07-57

Rowan is kinda weird. He just stood there staring at the Sprinklers with nothing in his queue.

00-07-58

Juniper is always doing something. ALWAYS.

00-07-59

Why is everyone demanding this wish? Birch didn’t get it, you sure are not.

00-07-60

At this point, I had to replant the garden at the side of the house. Nothing was happening. They weren’t hibernating (thought one of the mods forced them into Seasons mode), they didn’t wilt, they didn’t grow, they didn’t grow fruit, they just sat there stuck.

So, we lost all those special seeds, and I buy debugged two money trees back out. Cuz those were a pain in the butt to find and you can’t plant the money bags you get from the harvest. Everything else was replanted. It took a restart of the game and they started growing again.

00-07-61

Newspaper announced Willow but refused to announce Sycamore or the fact that Spring and Nicholas had twins. (I forgot to read the paper when the quads were born and their article did not pop up)

00-07-62

Aspen read the book. Apparently it helped her not die while pretending to be a hooker.

00-07-63

She was promoted at the end of that shift. She also still wore the hooker outfit for this position. Someone liked what they saw.

00-07-64

I had Aspen help Juniper with her homework. Aspen has 6/10 logic and they did this super quick.

00-07-65

However, Rowan got to do his homework with Larry from school. This took longer then it would have if he did it alone.

00-07-66

Oh look the two I don’t care about aged up, and Spring had her elder birthday, which I didn’t take pics of because the camera was bouncing all over the place.

00-07-67

It did stop bouncing for me to take pics of Nicholas.

00-07-68

He aged well.

Rowan: TOOOOOT!

Juniper: YAY! Our dad got old!

00-07-69

Their birthday present was a new bed.

00-07-70

Sycamore got a trait card as a birthday present.

00-07-71

WHOA! Is it possible for a baby to be so tired they’re haggard?

00-07-72

Who beat these kids with an ugly stick?! Makes me wish I was going for an uglacy.

00-07-73

They were promptly set to skilling. I’m managing to do it with the Quadruplets, I can do it with the twins.

00-07-74

Yup, nothing says family bonding time like painting in your undies and nightgown.

00-07-75

We got threw the playpen, the walkers, the potty training, Ash and Cedar just need to finish up their books and TSAL is done, and we just have the block thing and xylophones to do for the quads. We made excellent progress.

I will say the walkers and playpens were a godsend for the quads.

0.6 ~ Lucky

December 22, 2017

00-06-00

Welcome back to the Kaliedo Legacy. Last time Nicholas was taken off of tinkering duty of death, and Spring was put on it. Aspen grew up to be a teenager and started playing chess all the time, and Nicholas rolled in promotions, crazy good opportunities, and finished his skill challenges.

00-06-01

I FINALLY looked up this death method. I’ve had Sims die in the past due to tinkering on the computer or dishwasher and I’ve seen it in other legacies. But once looking it up, I discovered EAxis had done an update at one point and changed the death a bit.

Now the appliance/electronic needs to be running/turned on and the sim needs to be either soaked or standing in a puddle.

Thus the flooring, the sprinkler, and the TV. But alas no luck at the moment.

00-06-02

Birch has gotten a promotion at the job he kinda sucks at. He’s late all the time, stressed out all the time, and so overtired all the time.

00-06-03

This is where I remembered the electric bears in the catacombs. If we can get the singed moodlet maybe this’ll work better.

00-06-04

Success on the bear front. I’ll do a more in-depth thing on the catacombs. I just wanted the bear this time.

00-06-05

SUCCESS! OH SWEET PLUMBOB THE SUCCESS!

Spring still needed to be shocked twice, so bear electrocution does not speed that up.

00-06-06

This was very painful death to hear by the way.

00-06-07

Nicholas: My heart!

That is Aspen’s painting by the way, she’s doing the same one Birch did when he was still a kidlet.

00-06-08

There was no TV and sprinkler here, I did no such things to my sims.

Grim Reaper: Nicholas.

Nicholas: Grim.

Spring: *is dead*

+Point

00-06-09

Nicholas is surprisingly calm with the Grim Reaper and the whoofing ghostieness.

00-06-10

Nicholas: WWWWAAAAAAAIL!

Grim Reaper: This is just awkward. Get in the urn.

Spring: But…

I made this become a thing where all my founders have died differently.

00-06-11

Grim Reaper: Seriously, what a cry baby.

You can literally see his heart breaking.

00-06-12

DUDE! Just go to the science labs!

Nicolas: I need to plant a tree so that we may remember Spring for all time.

… you’re going to resurrect her in a few short hours.

00-06-13

It was cute, he got there as a bunch of sims got off of work, so they all stopped to wave at him.

00-06-14

Him coming out alone worried me.

00-06-14a

Thank plumbob.

00-06-15

+Point. Dunno, why she was waiting for him outside the labs though. Weirdos.

I would like to point out here, that Nicholas is at level 8 handiness, and Spring is at level 7 handiness.

00-06-16

Nicholas: Eeeew a ghost.

Spring: I got a new book when they brought me back.

She did. There was a new book in her inventory. It’s now in the bookshelf of regular books at home.

00-06-17

Of course celebratory woohoo is a must.

00-06-18

Followed by at home celebratory woohoo!

00-06-19

Baby chimes were heard so hoping its a ghostie baby.

00-06-20

They’re still adorable. ❤

00-06-21

Always promising. Give me ghosties!

00-06-22

Ironically, she lost none of her royalties when she died. I’ll have to check to see if the family will still get royalties if the family stays dead.

00-06-23

Well, that’s definitely not what happened. I watched it happen and Seasons isn’t set to load at this time.

00-06-24

Spring: This is awkward reading about my own death.

Well, I didn’t think they’d lie then go into detail about it.

00-06-25

Aspen gets to read a book.

00-06-26

I always forget about this, but once someone has some handiness you can change the doorbell. It’s now set to a jingle, and now I have to remember to change it because it is the same doorbell as my actual doorbell and I’ve been confused a few times.

00-06-27

Yay! Hoping it’s a ghostie baby.

00-06-28

Spring is still working hard at her Lifetime Wish.

00-06-29

Nicholas is being an absolute doll with this pregnancy.

00-06-30

This is weird. He can propose going steady, but nothing happens. They just kiss and make out and the option is still there.

00-06-31

She’s listed as his Fiancée though. So, after a couple days of trying I just Master Controlled them back to being married. The next day the newspaper had a bunch of stuff about them having a six figure wedding in a private ceremony.

00-06-32

He did this opportunity. I don’t remember if I got the screen shot of it though. Let’s find out together!

EDIT/ I did not get a screenshot of Nicholas completing this opportunity.

00-06-33

Aspen has been adorable with her parents as of late. I think I am either going to get Aspen to do the logic or the painting challenges.

00-06-34

Spring and Aspen both painted in blue and very child-like ones.

The crib will be recoloured once the baby comes.

00-06-35

Typical day, Spring checks the newspaper, Nicholas works on skills for his science career, Birch reads, and Aspen is usually off doing her own thing.

00-06-36

Later, Aspen was the only one to freak out over her mom going into labour. Nicholas, Birch, the lady Aspen had invited over to do a ranked chess match, and Spring herself didn’t bother with freaking out over this pregnancy.

Spring was sent to the hospital again. People need to work on their skills.

00-06-37

After Spring left, Aspen promptly crushed this military woman.

00-06-38

We had a girl! Surprisingly, we only got to pick one trait, Birch even picked up the pregnancy books after a shift, and Spring read them, listened to kids music, and was fairly happy throughout.

Spring: Except for dying 3 days ago.

00-06-39

I chose Brave for her. I’m thinking she’ll be doing the military track.

00-06-40

Here’s Juniper. She loves Aqua, Goopy Carbonara, Indie Music, and is a Leo. She is not a ghost, and I was sad.

00-06-41

Until this one popped up. Rowan also has the athletic trait locked in. Since we were doing names off of the “Loves the Outdoor” trait, and Birch, Aspen, and Juniper were named after trees I kept up with the tree theme.

00-06-42

I gave him loves the outdoors as a trait. Even if he’s a ghost, he can still jog and collect things. Grooming him to be the collector.

00-06-43

Well, fuck!

Rowan likes Irish green (like Aspen), French Toast, and Pop music and he is a Gemini.

00-06-44

I DIDN’T KILL SPRING SO YOU GUYS COULD GIVE ME TWINS AND NOT HAVE ONE BE A GHOSTIE!

Given that Spring was 9 days off of Elderhood when she died, and Nicholas is 7 days older then Spring, there is no time to wait!

00-06-45

Birch: …. I was using your guys’ shower….

At this point I realized I needed NRaas Shooless installed as a mod. Spring just floats through the bathrooms, making the sims stop what they were doing and shoo her, cancelling both their queues, and Birch just stood there watching his parents do the deed.

00-06-46

The twins got a bedroom attached to their parents suite.

00-06-47

I do like Aqua/Irish Green mix over Irish Green/Spice Berry. Plus I only had to recolour the Spice Berry on their toys.

00-06-48

Aspen and Birch autonomously do stuff together. I don’t think I’ve ever had sibling Sims that like each other so much.

00-06-49

Nicholas loves the twins, despite them not being ghosts.

00-06-50

Nicholas has started in on his 5 allotted life fruit. With another baby on the way, I’m trying to get him and Spring to be the same age. Also we got a life fruit from one of his promotions. I’m not sure which one, I’ll pay more attention once we have someone doing the Creature-Robot Cross-breeder Lifetime Wish.

We have a couple plants now of life fruit in the hopes of getting a perfect one to match the rest of the garden.

00-06-51

Quinton: Hello, adopted parents!

Birch is becoming a young adult so we threw a party and invited everyone that he knew that was a teen or young adult. Gotta look at the potential.

00-06-52

Classy Birch is still classy. Also, 5 or 6 people brought food with them, so we have food for days.

Quinton: My bestest friend is aging up!

00-06-53

I gave Birch childish. I miss playing tag and making instant bestest friends with everyone. And he can get a moodlet for sleeping with the teddy bear he has had in his inventory since he was born. Aspen has a bear too.

00-06-54

Ironically, he aged up in the suit and it was the same colour which was weird.

00-06-55

He wished to become a Renaissance Sim when he was a teen. He’s going to be taking over gardening and cooking, and will probably be doing the Fishing skill as well.

00-06-56

This is the hair colour he gets when I take him into Mirror, Dresser, or Stylist. I do have his natural coloured saved so it’s always switched back.

00-06-57

Even the Grim Reaper made an appearance at this party.

00-06-58

Nicholas and Grim seem to have a weird relationship.

00-06-59

And Birch made everyone play tag with him, even the Grim Reaper joined in.

00-06-60

Aspen, sweetie, just look to the right, she’s floating right near you.

00-06-61

Birch: And that is why I dress like a shark.

Aspen: That’s interesting.

00-06-62

Seriously, they spend a lot of time together.

00-06-63

Spring has been assigned to fix the dishwasher every time it breaks. She also keeps rolling wishes to fix it when it breaks.

00-06-64

+Point! Nicholas just needs to reach level 10 in the science career now, but he was given 2 work days off for having twins, but since he only works Monday, Tuesday, and Fridays, it means he has 5 days off. Not impressed since he’s level 9.

00-06-65

Aspen got a new opportunity I’ve never seen.

00-06-66

I shortened the baby stage down as far as it would go, so its now 2 days and the child stage got an extra day making it 8 days long. I wanted it 1 day, but normal lifespan apparently doesn’t go that short.

00-06-67

Juniper aged up first. She has Nicholas’ hair and eyes, and Spring’s ears.

00-06-68

Nicholas refused to let anyone else carry the babies over to their cake.

00-06-69

Rowan also has Nicholas’ hair and eyes, and Spring’s ears. I’m pretty sure they are identical, which is interesting.

00-06-70

Spring did pop again, but the game didn’t pull me over to me.

00-06-71

Both Spring and Nicholas rolled wishes to teach the babies to walk.

00-06-72

Team Parent Skilling Time!!

Oddly, this time neither Spring nor Nicholas has rolled a wish to have a boy or a girl. Both rolled a wish to have a boy with the twins.

00-06-73

Odd, but new opportunity.

00-06-74

Nicholas’ plaque finally showed up. ❤

00-06-75

Birch maxed out the bookstore career. +Point

00-06-76

I had Nicholas’ boss come over to try to ask for that promotion when Spring decided to go into labour in her swimsuit.

00-06-77

Continuing with the tree theme. Also Spring only listened to Kid’s music, but both her and Nicholas have the fertility treatments Lifetime Rewards. I want a ghost, and don’t want another pregnancy. We should get twins maybe triplets.

Spring read no books, but was happy during the pregnancy, which got the same results of reading the books.

00-06-78

I choose Loves the Outdoors. I dunno why I did.

00-06-79

GHOSTIE! WHEEEE! +Point! Hazel is a Taurus who likes the colour Aqua, Fish & Chips, and Spooky music… I thought that was added with the Supernatural Expansion.

00-06-80

We have twins of course. Ash got the trait I gave to his sister.

00-06-81

So, I gave him Virtuoso. He can stand and do guitar for tips in the park eventually.

00-06-82

Ash loves the colour Orange, Vegetarian Fish & Chips, and Pop Music. He is a Libra. It bothers me that the twins/triplets don’t get the same astrological sign.

00-06-83

Of course we get triplets with Spring listening to kids music all the time.

00-06-84

I chose Couch Potato. We will get him a TV at some point.

00-06-85

He’s also a GHOSTIE! Cedar is a Scorpio who loves Cheese Tofu Steak, Western Music, and Irish Green like Aspen and Rowan.

00-06-86

Um… WHAT?! I ONLY ORDERED A MAXIMUM OF THREE! THREE CHILDREN!!

Flashbacks of Generation Pink with their 60+ babies and the horrible horrible lag until I smashed them all with meteoroids.

Spring: I remember I DIED!

00-06-87

Pine got heavy sleeper. Just so I can check him and Aspen’s traits out.

00-06-88

Pine here also likes the colour Orange, Fruit Parfait, and Kids Music. He is also an Aries.

SERIOUSLY QUADS! I DIDN’T EVEN KNOW THAT WAS POSSIBLE! I knew triplets was, but QUADS!!! I wonder if it’s because of Master Controller or Story Progression or something NRaas related.

I’m gonna have 6 toddlers O.o

Yeah giving myself a point for having quadruplets underneath the Other Stuff Category.

00-06-90

We interrupt the lovely birthing to say Nicholas has the next stage of Omni Plants.

And then the game crashed.

00-06-90

Aspen: I’m pretty sure that someone here is an alien.

I got all of her new siblings back out and gave them exactly what they had before.

00-06-91

And Aspen finished her opportunity as well.

0.5 ~ It’s Not Happening

December 19, 2017

00-05-00

Welcome Back to the Kaliedo Legacy. Last time Birch became an child then a teen, Nicholas became an adult, Spring taught Aspen how to walk, talk, and use the toilet, proving to was faster for the adult sims to be involved, Aspen aged into a child, and Nicholas proved he was awesome by getting a shit ton of opportunities.

00-05-01

Birch proves immediately that he doesn’t value personal space by reading on his sister’s bed.

00-05-02

Aspen proves I have no plans for her by playing computer games. I really don’t know what to do with kids. Without expansions there is nothing for them to do but read, paint, fish, and write.

00-05-03

They’re adorable. Still wish I knew where Birch got his hair colour from, it bothers me.  Spring got her hair from her mom, her dad was Denim Chimcheree who had blue hair with blue streaks. Nicholas has brown hair and I believe he has no parents in the game. I really should look.

00-05-04

We’re still reading the newspaper daily/every other day, and we found out Granny Shue passed away. WHOOP!

00-05-05

Birch got an opportunity while at school. So, immediately after school he went to fulfill it.

00-05-06

He completed it by giving them a fish he caught in his childhood.

00-05-07

Nicholas would like to point out that he has hit level 7 in the science career.

00-05-08

Aspen also got an opportunity.

00-05-09

Which she also completed immediately.

00-05-10

Quinton just hangs out here all the time, I just never get pictures of him because I have everyone doing stuff. I think he’s trying to get into the legacy.

00-05-11

Birch also works together with Quinton to do their homework in different rooms.

Birch: You can’t kill him, if I sit next to my dad.

That’s not how this works, Birch.

00-05-12

+Point

00-05-13

Spring had her adult birthday surrounded by her husband and kids.

00-05-14

Thanks, Birch blocking your mom’s sparkles.

00-05-15

Birch got another opportunity. Apparently they think he’s good enough to do his grades, and work part-time.

00-05-16

He was hired at the bookstore, while he was visiting Quinton.

00-05-17

We finally had enough money to buy a table and chairs set. Even with the mismatched furniture, its adorable.

00-05-18

Hello, legacy killer. We also could afford the number one killer in legacies.

00-05-19

Aspen has started doing her homework autonomously now that we have a table.

Aspen: I’d rather not watch you kill my father.

00-05-20

He’s just upgrading the stove to self-cleaning so it’ll stop looking disgusting in photos.

00-05-21

Drama novel is done and it’s a best seller. Holy crap, I didn’t see her how much she got weekly in royalty payments until I went to add the caption. Nicely done, Spring.

00-05-22

Aspen fishes.

00-05-23

All the time.

Birch: We can talk to each other like this.

Aspen: We can.

This surprised me. I thought Aspen would have had to be at the table for them to chat with each other.

00-05-24

Nicholas is continuing his adventures in handiness.

Nicholas: I shall not DIE!

00-05-25

Plumbob, Quinton. First perfect fruits and vegetables by Nicholas and a biography by Spring.

00-05-26

AGAIN NOT THE RESULT I WANTED!

00-05-27

Spring is just badass when it comes to fires.

00-05-28

The other game I play keeps getting charged when they put the fire out, so this is nice. Aspen chatted with the nice lady for a moment before she took off.

00-05-29

Opportunity being started.

00-05-30

Nicholas had an opportunity to give a presentation at City hall and get work improvement. I apparently forgot to take a screenshot of the actual opportunity.

00-05-30b

He got a raise and is super low in exhaustion and hunger.

00-05-31

But before he was allowed to go home, Quinton was right across the street.

00-05-32

We gave him cucumbers. Insert dirty joke here.

00-05-33

LOOK AT THIS!

00-05-34

I’ve never seen sims not in the active household teach the toddlers how to walk before. :O

00-05-35

What is with you and Nicholas shaving your head?!

Birch: This is the athletic outfit you gave me.

NO ITS NOT! For some reason his athletic and naked “outfits” got reset.

00-05-36

Birch is now having trouble getting his homework done on time now that he is working and school.

00-05-37

Micah Earthsong-Chesterfield: I’m hungry! Make me something Aspen’s dad.

Nicholas: I can’t, I’m trying not to die.

Aspen had a wish for a sleepover, and another one to invite Micah over. Two wishes in one, I’m good.

00-05-38

Aspen: Charmed am I.

Michah: So, charmed.

Wut.

00-05-39

Micah: I”M TIRED!

Birch: I swear I see another little child screaming behind me.

It’s not your insanity kicking in, kiddo, he’s really there.

00-05-40

He needed a bed to be put down for him.

Sad news is the sleepover wish didn’t fulfill, despite Aspen asking him for a sleepover, and him sleeping over.

00-05-41

WHOOO! That was surprisingly fast. +Point

00-05-42

Nicholas would like to thank the store for having some plants available and making it easier to complete this Life Time Wish in the base game. He completed his Life Time Wish whilst sleeping in bed.

00-05-43

Look at this pretty 11 plants of perfection mixed in with the rest of the non-perfect plants.

00-05-44

Micah: And I join this legacy household.

Why are all the sims trying to either bang Nicholas (he keeps getting calls asking him out on dates despite being happily married with two wonderful kids), or trying to get into the legacy household. Looking at you Quinton!

00-05-45

Oh!

00-05-46

Well that explosion got him to level 8.

00-05-47

I feel bad for trying to kill him so much. He’s almost to the top of the science career, he got his Life Time Wish, he’s 8/10 in gardening, and has completed 1/3 of his skill challenges, and keeps rolling wishes to woohoo and kiss Spring, and have another kid.

00-05-48

Spring is now on her own portrait.

00-05-49

While singed I had him work on the dishwasher again.

00-05-50

+Point. Spring painted her’s much better then her husband’s.

00-05-51

The shark suit is still Birch’s favourite.

Aspen: It’s my birthday, will you stop trying to kill my father.

00-05-52

Aspen: I wish the author would stop trying to kill my dad.

Okay OKAY I GET IT!

00-05-53

Last time as a little cutie.

00-05-54

Everyone is there, they’re just behind the house for some reason.

00-05-55

Aspen: Yay! Dad’s not going to die.

00-05-56

Yeah, your dad isn’t going to die, sweetie.

00-05-57

I gave her Computer Whiz as her birthday present.

00-05-58

We had Salina Jasper over the one day. Birch had a wish to invite her over. Love floating heads.

00-05-59

Salina: BOOOOOO!

Fixed her.

00-05-60

Salina: BOO BIRCH BOOOO!

Of course the one sim in the valley who hates Birch is the one he wants to kiss.

00-05-61

He’s actually wearing appropriate attire for this.

00-05-62

We quickly found out she’s flirty, and a BABYSITTER. Hello, Salina, you are probably moving in.

00-05-63

There’s Birch’s proper athletic attire.

Spring: You’re getting cake on the biography of your best friend.

00-05-64

YOU’VE BEEN TAKEN OFF OF TINKERING DUTY OF DEATH!

Nicholas: Vengeance will be mine!

00-05-65

It’s a family affair to take on this fire.

00-05-66

Nicholas: I plan on setting more stuff on fire, if you keep getting made to tinker.

Spring: Set the dishwasher on fire.

I think they’re plotting against me.

00-05-67

Aspen has started working on her logic skill, while Birch has been helping in the garden. Nicholas is getting older and Spring is following, so its good for the kids to get skills going.

00-05-68

That makes 2/3 of the skill challenges done.

00-05-69

Second one done and he’s only 38 short of Master Farmer. He should get it in the next day or two.

00-05-70

With Birch doing the garden today, Nicholas came home and stood there at a loss of what to do.

00-05-71

Spring decided that to finish Quinton’s biography she needed a touch of class.

00-05-72

Again over $500 in royalties a week. This took longer to write then the drama novel and wasn’t much more then the drama royalties.

00-05-73

Spring: I’ve only met him a few times, but he seems like a nice kid.

Still dunno why a barely teenaged boy needs a biography.

00-05-74

Aspen would like you to know that she’s been sitting here like this for several hours.

Aspen: I am rebelling against the TV you bought for trying to kill my mom.

00-05-75

Spring’s new novel is a mystery, based on the mystery of why Spring And Nicholas haven’t gotten shocked  even once while doing upgrades and tinkering.

00-05-76

You clogged it, you unclogged it!

Birch: *grumble*

00-05-77

What the plumbob, were you doing in the lap. Spring and Nicholas now have a scary mask and a cute plant in their bedroom.

00-05-78

OH! I’ve never had this opportunity before. Glad that I stopped trying to kill Nicholas.

00-05-79

COMPLETE! Harvesting what we needed for this opportunity completed his final Skill Challenge.

00-05-80

Almost to a point for this. He just needs 2 more skill points in Gardening and then he claims it.

00-05-81

Quinton: So, your mom is shoving a screwdriver into a TV that’s on over there.

Aspen: Just ignore it, the author wants an electric ghost, and we keep setting fires instead.

Plumbob, Quinton, Aspen can ask you to move in.

00-05-83

Nicholas: Why are the women in this town walking around without pants?

Somehow CC got in. Those boots are proof of that.

00-05-82

WHOOT! I am happy that I don’t need to buy them anymore.

00-05-84

Cute three second family meal. Trying to keep the family on pretty good terms unless needed elsewise.

00-05-85

SERIOUSLY! I’ve been trying to kill Nicholas for weeks and he’s the one who gets this opportunity and before anyone in the family dies…………. weird. It’ll be nice when Spring does finally die due to electrocution, we can revive her in the couple hours.

00-05-86

WHAT IS GOING ON IN THAT LAB?!

This is also weird given that he’s been on “Geek out with Lab Coats” since he started there and not doing “Independent research”.

00-05-87

Level 9 of 10! I thought this was 10 since there is a LTW related to this level, which is weird.

00-05-88

Spring: Ha! I made another fire!

00-05-89

This time Aspen was the badass while Spring cheered her on from the sidelines.

I’m getting frustrated with the electrocution death. I think I’ll finally look into how to do it.
