Sorry for the double post but the game crashed for a Second time.  :-\ This time I was throwing a party at a Venue, I selected the 'Throw Party At ...' option and it took me to Map View, then it glitched and did that distorted object/graphic glitch where a huge graphic glitch glitches across the map, minimizing the game and opening it up again normally fixes it except this time when I went back in the game had stopped responding. It might have been because I had testingcheats on from a previous game save and didn't turn it off but I don't know, I've started noticing this glitch in my Dynasty as well now.  :(

EDIT: I had 44 Files in my DCBackup so I cleared those and my Cache files. (The safe ones I hope, Lol) Then I removed all the games saves to a place on my D Drive that I don't use, so any for fun games. Now I only have four save games, the Characters, Jades, Walkers and my Regen Project. I'll let you know how things go.

It seems to have all cleared up now, the game is also running a bit better. I had 1.5 GB in my Save Files. I managed to get a lot done!



Ghosts and Gnomes

Bugs has been staying awake for long nights lately, I don't know why but I keep finding him talking to his Grandmother or Father when he is about to pass out, I think it's because he asks for a Bed time story instead of just going to sleep.



Jelly Bean is good about going to sleep and actually likes it because it's a whole new experience... Just like going to the toilet...



Every night it's a race for the Ghosts to see who will reach Woody's bed first, tonights winner is... Wu! (Gen 2 Spouse)



I have had my first confirmation that the Inventing Gnomes are indeed still around, from 10% to 99%, for once they are wanted.



Alex spends all the time he has with his family lately.



I found them! The Gnomes! Harry, Ron and Dumbledore. Then there is Creep 1 and 2.



This is Hermione.



And no I couldn't resist, Ron and Hermione:



Here is Elmer's new room! It was Bug's Nursery just recoloured and a different crib.



Elmer's favourite colour is blue.

Talking of Ghosts, Tom (Rabbits Uncle) decided to come up from the basement via the Garage floor.



It's really sad, everyone reacts around Elmer the same as they do around Ghosts, although his family does love him.



It was cute when she followed him as an IF but really?



The current Car collection on display outside:



I just found out that Babies get a moodlet for going on a Stroll, good way to get Sims out of the house as well.



Ti found his Sons music room and well, he is getting into the Drums a lot.



This was funny because Dafy (Second Gen Heir) did the whole anti-celeb thing because Alex was falsely accused and then Alex returned it with a 'Ew a Ghost'.



As a Level 5 Chef, no special ingredient Alex made Perfect Pancakes, only to be eaten by Ghosts...




Extra picture of the most pure awesomeness of Agnes Character!



Ti is a good father, mainly because everyone else is often too busy, Jessie and her maxing Skills, Rabbit and her whatever she does, Alex and cooking for Ghosts.




The amount of times I catch her dancing instead of working out just severely slowed her down...



From Maxing the Athletic Skill!



Only Handiness to go now, I'm also thinking she may like to go into the Military, just for a proper career.

Lol, I called my Gnomes after Harry Potter. I'm only missing Hagrid, he was a bit of a loner Gnome really, never saw him much. :-\ And thanks.  :)

I'm going to call my Vampire Gnome Voldemort, if I ever get one in this game, have not had a Gardener since Generation Four.

(They're kind of creepy.)

Lol, that's why I called them Creep 1 and Creep 2.  ;D

Grandparents in Love

Alex gets the most of opportunities of all of my Sims, I guess it's because he is a Jack of all Trades, Master of none but experienced in most. Makes me sad to think of him when he was quite muscly but now... Skinny.



Rabbit often goes on Strolls with her Grandson, it gives her something to do and she never really does seem that bothered by Ghosts either.



So with all this going on I realise that Rabbit and Alex were drifting so with about five minutes of me telling them what to do, everything was back on track.




It really didn't take that much to get them back together properly.



Stargazing has to be the best interaction available for Romance, it's so cute!



Although being who they are they liven things up for the first time since... Woody... Wow that was a long time.



Ti is painting a portrait of Alex, just for Rabbit or maybe for Alex's Gravestone or something, he just got a Wish and I agreed.



Also do you ever feel like your Sims know you are there?



Rabbit and Alex are now interacting romantically without me telling them to, good signs, no?



Although it is sad to think that the next time I go into my game Alex may be on his last day... Happy 90th Birthday Alex...

I've had Vampire Gnomes show up even if I only have a plasma fruit seed on my lot.

Graduation

The kids have a new toy, a treehouse. It's okay except they sleep in there and then Ti decides to play his Guitar outside, lol.



So they extract revenge...





Then a few hours later someone graduates! Welcome home Woody!



What a welcome, it's like someone died... Oh wait, they did thats why the phone was ringing.



Rabbit gave her son a Graduation present, a Car.




Then told him about his new nephews he never saw.



When Jessie gave her present to her brother, a hand made invention... She got rejected.



At which she made fun of her now Brother for being a snob, ah Siblign Rivalry...



He got told that Smugglesworth Prep would give him a boost in his Career of Medicine but oh no he just starts at Level 1, Bed Pan cleaner.



His Logic Skills didn't improve much at all so it was back at that Logic Table for him, until his Iris ages up.



Like the new tank? Jessie's Workbench moved to a nice pink room in the basement with displays of her inventions, I didn't get a pic yet because only half the basement is done.



I'm just sending Jessie around upgrading things to max out her Handiness, she isn't even an Adult yet and only needs three more skill points till her LTW and third maxed skill. The Kids age up in two days and Elmer ages up the next in game day.



Next Chapter: Elmer Grows Up and Woody gets a makeover.

Toddler Skills

This is Bugs room, decorated with Jelly Beans paintings, she has a higher skill than him and is more interested in painting. Bugs is only Artistic for the bonus to the Guitar Skill but he paints now and then.



Ti finished his portrait of Alex.



I got annoyed of how the Family always had pathing issues from the Kitchen to the Dining Area so I combined them, I prefer this to the other way they did have it.



To break in the new Kitchen I had Elmer age up in there, I don't want Parties, not enough room for the family hardly, Lol.



The proud Grandparents:



Happy Father and Uncle.



Funny how the family are all cheering the wrong way, Elmer was in the Kitchen and they were still cheering towards the Dining Area.




The same hairstyle, three times in a row. I decided not to give him a makeover, not worth it if I'm only going to teach him his Skills and age him up.



So Jessie started the Potty Training then fed the little ghost.




Then the walking, much to the annoyance of the Maid, for some reason anyway.



Elmer was having none of it though.



Then when he did make it Jessie couldn't hide the look of shock on her face, Hehe.




Bugs and Jelly had a Ballet Recital, the whole family apart from Jessie and Elmer went to see it, both Kids got the Best Dancer trophy thing.




Isn't Death, Urns and Tombstones a little Grim for a Toddler? I suppose he is technically dead but still.





By the time Elmer learnt to talk they had moved onto more cheerful subjects.



I then realised that Woody needed his makeover so it was a trip to the Makeover and Body Room.




Bugs is probably the best child dancer I have seen, although the Ballet may help.



Rabbit was the one to seal the training of the Toddler Ghost. It's a new record, two attempts on the Potty and Elmer learnt all there is to know about going to the loo in a potty.

Birthdays

Elmer had his birthday first, he again aged up in the Kitchen because the balloons weres still up, lol.







Here he is, all ghostly glitched and all! Under all that ectoplasm (Is that what Ghosts are made of?) you would find Blonde Hair, from his Grandparents, although I don't have any clue what so ever about his Eye Colour and I won't unless I make him a real boy. For his traits he added Angler to Loves the Outdoors and Easily Impressed.



Oh and he floats!



And can go through walls!



This is his new bedroom.



There is something rather awesome about watching a Ghost fish at Sea...




Jessie is now at Level 8 of the Handiness Skill!



Ti-Ning was happy to oblige with taking his Ghostly Son fishing before 6am, just to make sure those pesky cops didn't arrest him.



It's been ages since I have had Sims do this, I guess I should start focusing more on families rather than careers, I know now, thanks to Alex that you don't need a Career to be happy!



Jessie has now signed up for the Military, it makes sense since apparently she went to the Military Boarding School.



Meet Titus Ursine, Lol that hair is just so embarrasing!



The Gnomes Crew move around a lot.



Then it was time for the Kids to age up!

Bugs goes first!





Then Jelly!




This is Jelly, she added Great Kisser to her traits.



Bugs added Flirty to his traits and here he is...

Then just remember to -1 from Bugs when you calculate the vote, but it'll only effect anything if there's a tie anyways.

I will, I made a note on that Poll Post. I am actually about two or possibly three updates ahead of everyone else which is why I have called the Vote now, it will run until Elmer becomes a Teenager and I catch up with the Chapters.

Mini Update

Ti signed up Elmer for Scouts, Bugs for Music Club and Jelly for Art Club.



Rabbit fired the Klepto Maid, he was not pleased to say the least and Rabbit was angry she couldn't retaliate due to him leaving.



I think he should be worried the next time him and Rabbit are in the same room...



Penelope was given an extended life thanks to Rabbit and now that Rabbit is an Elder and so is Alexander (Penelopes Husband) it's time for the Twins to be be a similar age for once, Lol.





Although he is a Four star celebrity, Ti just can't resist his Mother-In-Laws-Sisters Autograph. Penelope could be better but I'll give her a makeover later, I think she needs to come over to see her Sister.



Although Ti and Penelope Jammed away the night in the Consignment Store!

Musical People

For the Teens birthday, Woody took them to the Brightmore Disco Club, they had quite a bit of fun!






Even if they were the only people in there... Lol.



The next morning and the Teens were Best Friends Forever!



Elmer also had a Field Trip! Looks like he is the only kid in his Class...



After School in the Sunset, Bugs learnt his Guitar, he is boosted to Level 3 from the Musical Toddlers Toy that I can never spell. His Father and He jammed till it was Dark.



Check out Ti-Nings skills!



Bugs has some work to do on his though... it looks almost painful!



Alex is always having Elmer the Ghost telling him Ghost Stories, it sure adds dimensions to the plot.



Those of you who have been reading for a while now, (If there is anyone, probably not), will remember this perhaps... If you are a new reader then just minus about forty years from their age and it will be a similar picture, just a smaller Hot Tub.



It's quite romantic out there, is it not?



Nope, not at all. Two of their children are in with them and the one who isn't a Snob is thinking of herself.



I didn't know this but that Toddler-Musical-Toy-That-Can't-Be-Spelt also advances all the Instruments! Bugs went straight to level 3 of the Bass and Drums!




The Teens then had their own Field Trip, to the Science Centre. It was uneventful during the tour but afterwards was fun...





Back at home, Ti has maxed Guitar! Three quatres of the way to completing his LTW! Only painting to go!



Bugs was performing outside the Science Centre.



Then Jessie had her Adult Birthday!





She added Midlife Crisis to her Moodlets. Which was soon fixed after two days of no Midlife Crisis Wishes, I guess she just wants the drama and not the changes.

Always this Hair... I think she can stick with it if she likes it so much though.



The whole family was dancing at the Science Centre to Bugs and Ti's Jam, even Rabbit still has it!





Star really did add the Curvy genes into the mix since so many times do these Characters age up and somehow gain a few pounds from those sparkles. So I sent her jogging, that Fast Metabolism reward is amazing, she went from that normally empty street of Houses above the Town, to the Beach and look at the change:




Dusk till Dawn, the wonders of the Moodlet Manager.



It was time for the Teens to learn to drive, I suggested the cheap cars but oh no, the most expensive ones had to be the ones, I wonder who chose them, the adults or the teens?




Rabbit taught Jelly.



I just love this! I so need a Painting done of a Ghost fishing, Lol.



Then it was off for the family, apart from Rabbit and Jelly who were still chugging around town, to go to a Custom Made Bar by me, it's okay I guess and I like what a Backlight does to it. The colour is Red but it looks pink.





It also has a trampoline on the roof, Lol.



Elmer still needs to understand what a club is for...




I was only playing Bugs, then I realised that all the Adults had gone home by themselves, Elmer was following Alex. So guess where Bugs is?



Yup, he got arrested.





Although I think Jessie realised so she ungrounded him, I mean they left him there!

Thanks Gogo, I'm glad someone remembered it! Although where to find the Painting... It's either been lost or is in the Paintings Chest. It used to be on Rabbits Bedroom Wall and I think it needs to go up again now...
