My thoughts exactly. It seems as if the game uses one set of genetics more than another.

It definitely seems that way for me as well. Pam and I were joking the other night how Recipe has essentially contributed basically none of his looks to the Man Dynasty. It's all Bella.

Banana aged up ahead of her lookalike cousin, Ida.  They became BFF when Banana was still a teenager.  I've noticed that some have been calling the Best Friend requirement "BFF" when it's really not.  In Sims 3, "BFF" is an actual relationship status like Boyfriend.  Banana had a wish to ask Ida to be her BFF and it took nearly a maxed out relationship bar and a lot of friendly interactions before the option came up.  So, I'm just saying...  BFF isn't the same as Best Friend as far as this challenge goes.



Banana also aged up ahead of her boyfriend, Kerry.  She's waiting for him to reach Young Adult so they can get engaged.  In the meantime, she spent some time pushing him on the swing.



She's got one more special Best Friend.  Ronda Dreamweaver arrived from Banana buying the My Best Friend Lifetime Reward.  After a brief conversation and a hug, Ronda moved out of the house (per the Immortal Dynasty Challenge rules).



Banana immediately got on the ball making nectar.  She achieved her Lifetime Wish of Bottomless Nectar Cellar only three days into her Young Adult life phase.  Yay Banana!  Once it was completed, she emptied out one of the nectar racks and made a trip to the consignment store.  The first day's sales of her nectar rocketed her straight to level 6 in her nectar making profession.





When Nectarine went to deliver some paintings to City Hall, I saw a demonstration going on.  It seems they don't want to explore space for some reason, according to the signs.  I had Banana rush over and mingle with the protestors to help her Charisma skill.  She's already got the friends challenge met so that her friendships will never decay.



All of Chartreuse's rock star co-workers have died off, so she had to meet new ones.  Being a party animal now, she threw a party for them.  Here she is in her level 8 Lead Guitar uniform.  I think it suits her.

This video isn't as funny as the others, but I got a kick out of seeing Neurotic, Eco-Friendly Periwinkle use Banana's sports car to take everyone to the Bistro.

Lol. Banana's soooo wrong for dating that little boy ;D And I don't know how Kerry's going to be able to tell Banana from Chiquita (that still really cracks me up)!

Banana's been messing around with the Body Sculptor.  She's awfully thin, so she tried to bulk up a little.  It's too risky to let her start using the weight machine because Athletic is Nectarine's SuperMax skill.  It's already bad enough that Banana sneaks into the swimming pool when I'm not looking.



She's getting tired of waiting for Kerry to get out of high school.  What's the problem, anyway?  They were going steady for awhile when she was in high school and now she's only 12 days from aging up to Adult.  She's got to get busy and produce the 5th generation.  So, I remembered that Thorton and Morgana Wolff's decendants still live in Sunset Valley.  Banana called up Mario Wolff and invited him to her park.  I think he resembles Thorton, especially with that hair.  I don't know how old he is, nor do I know his generation.  He's got to be Thornton's grandson or great-grandson.



Once they got to be friends, Banana tried to lay a kiss on him with her Great Kisser trait.  He didn't want any part of it.  Four of his traits are Childish, Easily Impressed, Couch Potato, and Clumsy.  Not great, but he doesn't have to do much other than be a good father.



Banana got up to Good Friend with him and invited him over for dinner.  Afterward, she persuaded him to try out the Body Sculptor.



And off they went.



I guess getting your body shape changed is exhausting. 



It's a problem not only that Kerry hasn't aged up yet, but also that he will be so much younger than Banana.  Space in the Dynasty house is at a premium and will only get tighter.  I'd rather her have a spouse that will die sooner instead of later.  I'm sure she will be able to successfully woo Mario, but will she be able to break up with Kerry?  I've never tried to have a Young Adult break up with a Teenager.  We shall see.

WoW, Mario looks great after that little body sculpting session, hee hee. And she should be able to break up with Kerry because the break up option is on the 'Mean' panel.

Wonderful as usual.  I never have liked any shade of yellow but you sure made it work with that makeover.  I've completely changed my mind on that color and love what it can do.  Mario is a handsome hunk now, isn't he?

I don't really have a favorite color, but yellow wouldn't be at the top of the list if I did.  The thing with Banana is that I'm trying to get completely different colors for each generation and yellow fit the bill.  When I use different shades of banana yellow and add some complementary/contrasting colors, it works out nicely.

I didn't know you could get other sims to use the body sculptor!  Here I've been despairing over the fact that so many of the local residents are very overweight.  But Mario is really a changed man after using the body sculptor.  Very nice.

Banana asked Kerry to meet her at her park.  She dreaded what she must do, but Kerry clearly wasn't mature enough to for the responsibilities Banana has to deal with.  She broke up with him.



He didn't take it well at all and ranted at her until they had virtually no relationship left.  He wanted nothing to do with her apologies or efforts to console him.



Banana had her heart set on Mario Wolff now that she'd gotten to know him.  After breaking up with Kerry, she invited Mario to come to the house.  Even though he had resisted her attempt at a first kiss, he was unable to resist her Irrestible Greet.



He fell head over heels for her after that and they snuck down to Periwinkle's museum room for a little privacy so she could propose to him.



As you can see, her father wasn't about to let them out of his sight and played a video game during the proposal.  Lucky for Banana, Mario didn't mind the audience and said yes.



Plans for the Banana Wedding Extravaganza are in full swing!

It'll be a great banana party if I can get my game to behave.  I'm having trouble getting saves and it's crashing to desktop a lot.  I think I need to adjust my graphics settings. 

The Banana Wedding Extravaganza is set up and it looks fantastic!  Even better than Periwinkle's wedding.  ;D

Pam, I got used to window mode instead of fullscreen even if it was very hard at the beginning. After that it never crashed, even with highest settings. Plus without any problem I can check something on-line, and I can always see the clock and since otherwise I often got lost in time ;D

Good luck and can wait to see wedding party in banana theme. And please, serve banana split to the guests :D

First, let me show you the set up.  Here is the roped off ceremony area.



This is the reception area.  Notice the nectar tables.





And here is the dance floor and stereo.



I got a lovely picture of the three Immortals as they were waiting for guests to arrive.  Left to right:  Nectarine (2nd generation), Carina (Founder), and Periwinkle (3rd generation).



The wedding started at 1:00 p.m.  Banana was beautiful in the wedding dress and veil her mother handed down.  Banana made it a soft banana color and added some jewelry to make it her own. 



The vows were touching.







Husband and wife.  Kiss the bride.



She knows she married the right one.



Never mind all the chairs.  The guests would rather stand in the flower bushes to watch the ceremony.



Look how much she looks like Nectarine in this picture.




Oliver immediately brought out his guitar to entertain the guests.  That's Chiquita in the long green skirt.  And apparently one of the guests raided Banana's wardrobe.



Mario served the buffet table while Banana poured nectar.





At least the family enjoyed the food and drink.





It was sunset before the dancing started.  Mario had to ruin the effect by desperately needing to go potty.



Looks like I didn't make the dance floor big enough.



Father and daughter danced at her wedding.



Look alike cousin Ida smiled for the camera while dancing.



And surprise!  It turns out that it was also Mario's Adult birthday.



Chartreuse refused to wear her formal attire.  She's a Pop Icon, after all, and an insane one at that.  She has a statement to make.  She stayed up all night after the guests left to finish off the nectar.  It was 5:00 a.m. before she made it to bed.



Just as Chartreuse went to sleep, I found Mario already awake for the day.  Oh my.  This is going to be interesting.



Happy Wedding Day, Banana and Mario!

I love your venue design for the wedding. I think I'm going to take some tips from you, as I can never get it quite right.
You should open a guide on how to design a good wedding, lol.

Banana and Mario Tried for Baby right after they got married and I heard the chimes, so they were successful.  They quickly took a honeymoon to Shang Simla before she started showing.  I brought along a couple of Banana's nectar makers so she could work on her journal challenges during their 6 day trip.  By the time they came back home, she had completed everything but the Vizard of Vine and it won't be far behind.

One of the purposes of this trip was to let Mario get enough happiness points to change his Lifetime Wish.  He started out with Descendant of da Vinci and that just won't do at all.  I'm not going to spend that much time with him and he's already an Adult, so there's very little chance he would get it.  He took up photography while in Shang Simla and got all the way to level 8, so he will be able to take over for Oliver.  He had a lot of wishes and soon reached 10,000 happiness points.  I changed his Lifetime Wish to Jack of All Trades.  I think I can get him to level 5 in 4 careers before he dies.  And it will make it easier to handle him if he's at work every day.

On the last night of their vacation, Banana and Mario enjoyed some of her nectar together.  Funny for us, but embarrassing for Mario, he showed that he can't really hold his nectar.

Banana and Mario Drinking Nectar

Hehe.  I didn't do it on purpose, I promise!  Don't you love his mint green leisure suit and sneakers?

They were home only a couple of hours when Banana found out she's pregnant!

I can't wait to see the new nooboo. I am guessing that Banana has a pregnancy craving for watermelons.

I'm glad you like the videos!  I wasn't sure if they were too boring.  It's tricky with the camera, for sure.  Sometimes I have to take a video a few times before I get a good one to publish.  For zoom, using the X and Z keys are pretty smooth.  Other than that, it's just practice, I guess.  My game is set to where I hold down the right mouse key and move the ball with my fingers to move around the screen.  (I have a trackball mouse.)

Again, I'm very happy to hear you like them.  I'll keep making them if others are also enjoying them.  :)

Childish Mario loves being part of a wealthy Dynasty because he gets to wear a cool pirate costume any time he wants.



And he gets to dress like an Army man.



And a 1970s disco king.



It was only a couple of hours after returning home from Shang Simla that Banana found out she's pregnant.



She seemed to blossom to a big round belly almost immediately.  Here, she's giving the big news to grandmother Nectarine.





With Mario's new Lifetime Wish of Jack of All Trades, he joined the Sports career as soon as they returned from their honeymoon.  Nectarine was helpful in training him because he had zero athletic skill.  Mario also gets to wear a cool race car outfit when he works out.



Banana has been the first of the Dynasty to put on a little baby weight.



Pregnancy didn't stop her from making her precious nectar, though.



She even went into labor in the middle of it.



In the middle of the pain, she still thought of nectar.



Mario appears to be cool headed in this shot, but he was really as freaked out as Chartreuse.



Once at the hospital, ex-boyfriend Kerry happened to be outside and he freaked out, too.



All went well with the birth.  Banana is proud to introduce Cinnamon Dreamweaver.
