Hello everyone and welcome back to my BACC challenge! I beat Pokemon Black last night and am currently in the game spinning in circles hoping a Seviper will show up that my stupid team DOESN’T KO. And what do you know, I just succeeded! Maybe I can actually explore now, what a concept.
Last time we were here, our Family Sims continued to fail at life while teenagers grew older and made out with Bon Voyage townies, because what else are they there for? Our second generation is growing old, and generation three is getting ready to take charge of the town, whether they want to or not!
Three of our seven or so (Nery was added in so late that I don’t really count him) second generation citizens (it took me too long to spell that) have grown into Elders. Julia and Orlando are next, though it seems that Julia prefers to practice yoga and/or party tricks.
Orlando actually gets aspiration points, though. What kind of Family Sim are you?!
Let me give you a quick look at the house, as it’s a funky one. The outside is pretty normal except that the deck kind of doesn’t fit, erm.
And the inside is a terrifying amount of blue! Complete with an exercise room. Could have made a second kid’s room but bunking together builds comradery. And for reasons I’m not quite sure of, WordPress refuses to acknowledge that as a word.
Meanwhile, yet another tuxedo-wearing toddler. I’m not finding any pictures of this kid’s birth, awkward, so just in case you haven’t been introduced, this is Abraham. I’ll get his personality later, as I have TS4 minimized instead of TS2.
“Screw my little brother! It’s my turn for a birthday!”
“My god, he grew spider hands!”
Not only that but he’s getting aspiration points for them.
You know, Orlando, you could gain aspiration points for this.
“Nah, too easy.”
Meanwhile, if you look carefully through the windows, you can see we’re doing homework literally at the last minute!
“Gah, no, that’s not right, focus, focus, ignore the horn!”
While Abraham took to floating.
“I am ninwa.”
“Look, kid, floating is great and all, but you really need to learn how to use a toilet.”
“But I ninwa!”
Free Time really amps up the strange outfits, doesn’t it? Somehow that doesn’t look too comfortable.
But look who came home with a promotion! Hooray!
“I am pleased with this human.”
So the kids were annoying me with their Family and Pleasure wants (or I think Jeffrey is Pleasure), so I took them out to our music lot, which is a premade coffee lot thing.
The woodland people seem relieved that there is a pool table.
“Finally! We don’t have to construct this ourselves!”
There’s a surprising lack of teenagers at the place, though. Andy is forced to chat up the coffee girl.
“So can I get a free cup now?”
“Ha ha, loser, loser! Can’t even chat up a coffee girl!”
She seems way too happy with the situation. Also how did I never notice the little tea boxes next to the coffee machine? How cute!
“Mommy, ninwa want Mommy!”
“Good, good! Use those talking skills!”
How about you use your logic skills?
“It is illogical that we have paneling on the inside of the house.”
Oh shut up.
“What? I didn’t do anything.”
“Help, help, this fire appeared out of no where and my hands are stuck in the fridge!”
“Grrrr, fire, grrrr!”
“I really need to grow up and get out of here.”
Jeffrey, the kitchen is burning down.
“That’s nice. Kind of busy here.”
Dammit, Julia, you brought home Amin Sims the Stalker!
And, of course, he’s there to witness a birthday, even blocking family members.
“Gosh, Julia, you really look smoking in those pajamas.”
“Don’t make me break your kneecaps, Amin.”
So we actually invited people over for these birthdays, though you’d think we would serve them something better than deli meat sandwiches.
Not that they seem bothered.
“Oh yeah, everyone! Synchronous deli meat fart! Aaaaaaand GO!”
Yep, I’m classy. That’s Abraham in the striped shirt in the front.
Aaaand then some sort of fiasco happened.
“Whoa, I’m leaving before this gets worse.”
“How could you do it, you bastard?! How?!”
“Me?! You’re the one who enslaved me and made me quit my job to take care of kids!”
Forgot those lunatics. Off to the bakery and restaurant, where we find that rearranging stoves has some entertaining side effects.
Combining a shop and a restaurant is perhaps not the best idea. It means you need a lot of employees and/or family slaves, and the crowding can get a bit crazy.
“I… I just want you to sit down for a meal!”
Thankfully I love micromanaging. Jeffrey comes along to be the waiter.
“Yes, today, we have not one, but two fried eggs as our special!”
And just in time at home, our chef maximizes his cooking!
“Oh my god, your butt! It sagged before my eyes!”
Yep, I’m really classy today.
“Wooooo, yeah, Julia! You’re a smoking hot babe!”
At least she got aspiration points, unlike a certain someone.
And then she maxes out her body! Something you will not manage with a TS4 Elder. Which I hate. They can’t even WooHoo without feeling “overexerted” and about to die. Lame.
All right, Orlando, moment of truth. 10 cooking points. Can you do it?
And he can! He doesn’t look too impressed though.
“Look, Kaylene, I’m just saying that I love a good pair of stilettos for when I cook lobster.”
Jeffrey, dammit, leave Sophie alone!
“Wait, what’s… What’s happening to me?!”
The first of the third generation grows into an Adult! Hell yeah!
But I’m going to save his face for next time, because oh man.
At Maragaret’s household, in full view off the original Baguet house…
“Ugh, that alien spacecraft hurts my sensitive robotic hearing!”
“Margaret! Margaret, no!”
“Oh god, no, I come back from probing to this!”
“I can’t watch, Jacob! Tell me she makes it!”
“Oh dear god, what did you do?”
“What? Everything’s fine… I’m just a bit tingly…”
I”m glad to see Jacob is so very concerned about the game room going up in flames.
So somehow the family survived, and I then emptied out their inventories of excessive baked goods. Maxima won’t have to cook for a while.
Dammit, Margaret, again?! You have Mechanical points!
Here, eat a rotten pastry and try not to get killed.
So I upgraded the house and moved the computer upstairs, and then she was able to fix it. Okay then.
It’s called waiting your turn, Maxima.
“Finally, the computer is mine!”
I too get aspiration points from my computer.
Speaking of aspirations…
“Oh god oh god, the aliens can see I’m not wearing underwear!”
“Oh god, you guys again?!”
“T-Thanks for the… Panties…”
“I have created a true masterpiece of art. It is a lie that machines do not understand such creative concepts.”
“Oh my god, the babies will come from where?”
“I am impressed by how often this family has been probed. Please take this gift.”
Uh, thanks, I think.
Ugh, finally! To the shop!
Are you kidding me, Amin Sims.
“Haha, wheee! Don’t you want to join me, Margaret? Forever?!”
As you can see, we’ve managed to build a cute little electronics shop.
Which means finally, my Sims have a place to buy the stupid electronics they always demand! Want a cell phone? Finally you can get one.
I might’ve worked Margaret a bit too hard to get there, though.
“Komei, you are one smoking-hot–”
“Arrrrrgh, the pain!”
“Margaret, this man’s pain pleases me.”
Wait a minute, why are you gaining gaming points from alien babies?
“We know we’re virtual.”
And yep — alien twins again. At least this household actually has the man power to take care of them.
Jacob is holding Mark. Maxima is holding Euro. Do you recognize the them?
It’s currency, because their father Jacob is a Fortune Sim!
The Mark is German currency used prior to their joining of the European Union and transferring to the Euro, which then needless to say, is the EU currency.
So in the mean time, we have a pinball machine, arcade machine, and gaming system, so it’s time for Maxima to get a job playing those all day.
Jacob, meanwhile, goes straight back to work. Can’t expect much from a Fortune Sim.
So it seems that Servos are as good with babies as it seems, though arm-severing is a concern.
Jacob isn’t too bad of a father, really. He’s got enough paternal instincts to feed them once in a while.
Not enough to diaper them, though.
That reminds me, Alexander Goth married some dormie in my Pleasantview game and they had to go and throw natural twins, and then dormie always had a fear of changing a diaper. Always. So her aspiration tanked since we couldn’t always wait for Alexander to get home. Ugh. I wanted to kill her and I almost never want to kill my Sims.
“I have completed a great novel. Truly, I bring human arts to new heights.”
Now if only you would do the same for the babies. I don’t think they belong under the changing station.
“There there, little Mark. Papa Maxima has you.”
Maxima, you are way too adorable.
Oh my. Now it’ll take even longer to make this Servo.
Perhaps, but it’s time for twin toddler hell!
First up is Euro…
And downstairs is Mark!
Twin toddlers are a lot easier with three people in the house.
It helps that Jacob is a weird Fortune Sim.
“Gosh, I wuv you, daddy!”
“And I love you, my little Euro!”
But enough of them, it’s time for the Cables! I don’t have a whole lot of pictures this time around, so we can do all of month five in one post.
So despite the fact that they currently hate each other, Jack still wants to flirt with Nery.
Jack is still being a butt though, so I go to extreme measures.
“Please, Jack, I have such a burning headache… Only one thing could fix it!”
“If that’s the best pick-up line you have, you’re no Romance Sim.”
“Oh little kitten, you’re the only one who understands me…”
Fabulous Kid, Jack is making a turkey…
“I’m good. Living in the woods makes you able to eat anything.”
So it seems Nery’s awful pick-up line worked out.
What are the kids doing? Catching up on their copious piles of homework.
While Muffin here pops into an interesting adult.
By some miracle, Amin Sims isn’t the one to stalk this birthday. It’s some woodland gang member instead.
“Oh my god, Endo, can I grow next, huh?”
“Sure you can!”
I must say, Plasmosis is surprisingly normal-looking for a first-gen. alien kid.
But enough of them. It’s time to go to the restaurant to avoid Jealous Jack!
“Oh, Ryan, I think I love you.”
Too bad the ghosts don’t like you.
“Screw you, Nery, this is my garden!”
Plasmosis, stop spying on the neighbors.
“But he had babies!”
So did your father, now do something constructive.
So that kitten popped into a rather boring cat. I think this is Owl?
So back at the shop, our Bon Voyage townie isn’t made out for retail.
“That’s right, my work ball may be green and happy, but I quit anyway!”
And it’s back to the restaurant with Lindsay! God it’s a relief to have this now. Those piddly “Eat Out with…” Wants can be fulfilled, which means the bigger-point Wants will show up more quickly!
“You know, this food is great, but what I really want is a movie theatre.”
“I may not have a theatre, but I know a bit about movies…”
And apparently the old creeper wants to watch.
“Oh baby, come to me, MMMMMFF–”
“Um, excuse me, I want to buy some cake.”
“Well that was a great date, baby.”
“I loved it, Nery, but there was something crunchy in my food…”
Meanwhile, back at home, Endo gets hobby points for burning down the house.
As does Plasmosis, apparently.
“Grrrr, this will get Nery!”
Meanwhile, Jack comes home with a nice pile of money.
“Hey, wait a minute, this isn’t a date!”
Nope. It’s time for you to earn your keep.
Welcome to the Castle of FUN! This is our Club lot, which opens up one position in the Slacker career.
The Castle of FUN! features drinks, food, and only the finest tunes.
Of course, the Woodland gangs are thrilled.
“God this DJ is awful, but I just can’t help but dance!”
Meanwhile, back at home, the cats prevent Jack from sleeping.
Yeah, bad time to visit, Benjamin.
“Ugh, no more tubby! I need to be fit for my dates!”
“Grrr, tree! How dare you be on fire!”
“Oh well, whatever.”
“Hell yeah, I may be smelly, but look at these muscles!”
So, uh, the tree never went out. It’s still on fire, even in the current game.
Serves you right for quitting. Get off of our lot.
“Plasmosis, I know you did that on purpose!”
“What? I figured you’d be fast enough.”
“Ugh, get off of me, Plasmosis!”
Ah, wait a loving family the Cables are, no? Reminds me of my real family.
But it’s time for the original Baguets. Kaylene is learning the ropes, and so of course Amin Sims is a customer.
Maxx popped into a collie mix, ready to continue the Baguet dog legacy.
Well, in theory, anyway.
“So, dad, do we have to do anything to get Andrew to grow up?”
“Just stand here emotionless, Ben.”
“Augh, he’s a Komei clone!”
“Yeah! Go, Komei Andrew, go!”
“So do you think if we stare at the dog, he’ll transform too?”
I changed Andrew into a dorkier kid, though really the Komei look is dorky as it is. Here he is in his default wear. Yes, his default wear is an apron.
Really, it’s not too surprising that he’s weird.
“Oh yeah! Oh yeah! Look to the side! Oh yeah!”
“Oh Meadow, I don’t care which parts of you get wrinkly, I’ll always love you.”
“So since mom and dad are too busy being gross, Baxter and I will teach you how to do your homework.”
“Screw this family!”
Jeffrey, rude. These are your relatives.
“And screw them!”
And yeah, the families are backwards, whatever.
Though his personality fits right in, really.
“I get aspiration points when I smack you with the ball!”
“Yeah, well, let’s see how you like it!”
“I shall draw out my plans for revenge…”
“Yes, hello. No Julia does not live here. She has not lived here for years. Why do you keep calling?”
True story. Pretty sure Marisa still calls the family asking for Julia.
“Hell yeah, this is my venue, I can feel it.”
“Here’s your grape juice, kid.”
“Who’s ready to smustle?!”
Benjamin here actually has Creativity points.
“Marsha Breuing. I have heard great things about you.”
Don’t ask me who is beating up Maxx. I don’t know either.
“Oh baby, I know of who we can have even more fun…”
“… By going to my sister’s restaurant!”
Really, you weird-os? That’s what you want to order at a restaurant? A cookie and a soda?
“Gosh, I just love babies, don’t you?!”
“Um… S-Sure, Julia… So can I have my soda?”
Hey, wait a minute — That’s not yours, Benjamin!
“It is now.”
“Did you just steal that man’s cookie?”
And then he plopped the plate back down in front of them.
“Dear, should we sic Maxx on him?”
“Oh baby, even with our food being stolen, that was a wonderful date.”
“I find it incredible that there is so much peace among the Woodland Gangs now. When I was a teen, there was constant war!”
“Yesss, Benjamin, yessss, look deep into my eyes…”
“Cut the crap, kid, or I’m throwing you out the window.”
“Heh heh, aspiration points for looking at a sexy red head. Oh yeeeeeah.”
“Look, mom, maybe you should stick to ice cream. Or would you burn that too?”
“And then he said I’d set off the smoke alarm! Can you believe it?”
“Well you set off mine, baby.”
Once again with the piddly Wants, Meadow. You’re making it difficult to keep you platinum.
“Hell yeah, Andrew! Feel the smustle!”
This family is addicted.
“I feel it. I’m closer to being free.”
“He got 5K aspirations for growing a bit taller?”
Yeah, he loves me.
But he’s not the chosen “heir”, so he gets to move out! Well, once he is surgically removed from the chair.
And that’s where we’ll end! The Cable household is barely visible in the bottom left, and Julia’s family is off-screen to the left. The Castle of FUN! is also off-screen and is to the left on the giant hill.
Next time: the rise of the third-generation! Do they marry Bon Voyage townies? Will the Cable ghosts stop terrorizing visitors? Will Meadow ever stay freakin’ Platinum? Maybe you can find out next time!
