Curious,

Has anyone ever had this happen to them?  In my Cage story, there are the triplets, Samantha, Sabrina and Jared. 

What is weird is that one day when Jason was visiting at their home Jared walked up to Sabrina and did the flirt actions.  They held hands, did the swaying back and forth and had the voice of two people flirting.

Two other times that Jason has visited and he was talking to Sabrina Jared walks up and has the popup that Jason is acting inappropriately, and if he continues he will need to leave. 

I tried to have Jason flirt with his sister, and none of the romance actions came up, he couldn't hold her hands or do anything.

Is this just a weird glitch of that family?  It's weird, Jared gives him the evil eye and Sabrina sends him love letters and gifts. 
Never had anything like this before, so was curious if anyone else has experienced it.

Truthfully, I think it is one of those weird glitches, such as the maid fixing waffles.

Hmm, I'm guessing it's some kind of glitch. Are Jared and Sabrina still registered as brother and sister? If not, their (assuming it is) high relationship could be causing them to flirt. If they are still brother and sister... um, well that's just messed up! I've had some weird glitches before -- like in my DecaDynasty, I had two teens that got engaged, even though I don't have any mods that would allow you to do that.

As for the acting inappropriately... I'm not sure. Which social interactions in particular was Jason using? If he was doing mean interactions then that's maybe why. Sims find some odd things inappropriate. My Sim made tried to make the Altos a tasty meal and she got kicked out. If one of my friends came over and said "I'm going to make you Mac and Cheese", I'd be delighted! Sims, eh?  ::)

Their not my family, so I haven't tried to see if I could find a relationship for them with each other.

Jason was talking at that time to Sabrina and she had the popup that she liked Jason, or something like that, no negative popup.

Same as with her parents, both had the like Jason popup I think either just before or after Jared showed his disapproval.  He has never had any type of negative from either of them.  They have wanted to throw water balloon fights, build snowmen, other type of interactions, but nothing that was negative. 
Braden, now he has been different, but their neg ones have been when he was alone with them, Jason would be talking to either Jared or one of the girls and it is obvious toward Braden. 

I think it is a glitch, was just wondering if anyone else has ever had this happen.

As for sims getting engaged, I need to check out the relationship with Samantha, I think he had the option to ask her if he could spend the night.  I don't know if that is normal.  Need to find how far it can go.  They are both still in high school.  She is two days ahead of him from how it has played out.
He went over one day and she was a child, two days later he went over and she was a teenager.  Two days later he aged up and I had them start the romantic interaction, they flirted. 

Been weird glitches with this game.  Both Brigit and Marcus got stuck outside when I sent them to the Festival.  I couldn't see either one of them, not even their plumbobs I think it is called (the green diamond shape over their heads).  I could hear them yelling when ever I clicked on them, but that was all. 

That was a time when I brought the game up to check on something and wanted to get a photo that I really needed but had missed as I was too caught up in the game.  I had them on static, so I don't know if they would have died of not, it was two sim days they were stuck.  No panel showed up for either one of them either.  Just their photos.    Weird

Tried resetsim several times and it didn't work, no click arrow to send them home, it was as if they were home but they couldn't do any interactions.  Sent them to their dressers hoping that would work, nope.  The only thing that did was when the bus came for Brigit and the car for Marcus then they broke free.
Weird

Another problem with my Cage family.  I have had to do some blending and a slight bending of the rules to keep from losing my family. 

For some reason, after they married, Jason and Samantha, I couldn't control her.  I could tell her to go and get something to eat, shower, potty but that was it.  I couldn't tell her to go to bed, to go anywhere.
Saved and tried again, same problem.  Went to an earlier save before they married, had them do the romancing and marry again, thought that would help. It didn't.  Married them and moved them out, that didn't work.

Desperate, I took the Singh family, from an earlier time when played where the triplets were teens and moved them to MV.  There, I aged them up to YA and moved Samantha out, giving her the traits she had from the game in MF.  Saved her in the bin.
Went back to the earlier save, before Jason had aged up to YA, and evicted the Singh family not putting them in another home.  Moved the Cage family into the Singh home.  Took Samantha and moved her into one of the starter homes.  Sent Jason to meet her and while he was there had him age up there, wasn't sure if being aged up in his original home could be a factor. 
Invited her over the next day, she comes over they romance and later on, he proposes and they get married.  Played some more and no problems.

I took the traits that he had rolled from the first time and gave those to him.  Didn't take any new photos, am going to use the ones from earlier times.  Especially the second marriage attempt. 
I'm going to have to go to an old save and try to find the house I remodeled for Braden and bulldoze that house and replace it with the remodeled one.  I hope that isn't the game I deleted   :(   

Which I guess lets the cat out of the bag that he will be staying in MF.  If he hadn't been a loner along with Insane, I would have given him more consideration for heir, but he was so stressed out all the time when around others then add in the insane aspect and I couldn't do that to him.  He isn't like Luke is in his story; he has such a happy go lucky nature it works for him.

If everything is fine, then tomorrow I will be posting the birthday party, the romancing and marriage ceremony.  I hope I can do them all tomorrow, anyhow.

YEAH! ! ! !

It seems fine, had the wedding at a "romantic" spot, no problems in controlling the bride and all seems to be working fine.

An interesting thing, though, not with this town, but with another. To take a break I decided to work on one of my "seed" families in another town.  The male is coming home from being out late at night and as he goes up the walkway to the house he is kidnapped.  No space rocks, no telescope for stargazing, I  had just started the family and the female was pregnant. 
He is returned and the female goes into labor the next day.  Two days later he gives birth to a cute little girl.  Now I  have with that family so far one full human male infant, one alien female infant and I had the mother get pregnant again. 

I don't plan on using the alien child as a mate, for me it would have an affect on the genetics, but just curious if it would be allowed.  Plan on saving her to be used in a game sometime that isn't a project game.

I had that happen to me but I just let her live her own life when she grew up because I didn't want to mess up the townie genetics.

That's how I see it, I don't want to use her in this game, but I will definitely hold her back to be used in a non-project game. 

This seed town is having some interesting events.  First the alien baby, then another sim in the town that I switched to has a roommate, they both have other RI, but they start to put the moves on each other.  Checked, and the female's RI is already at elderly stage, married and she has just aged to Adult.
The male, he is two days from aging up to Elderly and his RI is a vampire.

My new couple immediately got it on, married them and he gets a naughty reputation.  Send him to break up with the RI and when he gets back to his new bride, he accuses her of cheating.  Sheesh.   ;D  Peyton Place should be the name of this town.  It took some sweet talking, but they made up.  Babies are on the way. 

I have three more towns to "seed" and I want to do another couple in one of the other towns and I think I will have all seven towns seeded.
And I need to focus on the next town to visit, instead of these other towns.  I have to get it ready.

Great update! You should actually create a new topic under Project Stories instead of using this thread. This one is for questions, etc. about the Random Town Jump. I like your blog. It looks good.

Curious if this would be confusing, frustrating or fill in the blank if when I start posting about the new town I put the Name there and then start the Chapters at one.

Example:  Cage family Random Town Jump M. Falls, Town 2 Ch 1  (not sure exactly how I put the title, but it is close enough)

If I go by the order that I have now, it would be Chapter 15

I am seriously considering going outside and beating my head against the brick wall of my house.

I just commit the one thing you should NEVER do when playing games, forget to save.

Six (6) hours of work lost.  I sent her to China to get the stir fry recipe and she disappeared on me.  Lost everything I had done because I hadn't saved once.

I will have to repeat it all, but I will add in photos of two events that most likely won't repeat.

Seems zombies now like to swim in pools.  And of course, one had to die at the slide and the other just before she entered the yard. 

I used to not have problems with them opening gates, they would stand at the gate and yell and moan, but never open it.  Now, after the moaning and clawing motions, they just open up the gate and come into the yard.

Head straight for the pool with the waterfall and play in it or the slide.  They don't change into swim suits, they jump in in their clothes.

Another question.

I have read remarks of the midlife crisis, I am wondering, is there a set guide on that, can we do it as soon as they get the points?  Or have to wait a certain time to do so, such as when they are adults or elders?

What about changing just their favorites, such as colors, foods and music?

Another questions on LTW

In my Cage family, Marcus is a cop.  He went for the International Spy.  Could later down the line, if a sim wants to be a cop but wish for the DNA section, can he or she have that as a LTW?  Or is that seen as the same and another LTW have to be chosen?

The midlife crisis reward can be used at any life stage...as long as as they have gotten the points...without cheating.

It is confirmed, my Cage family has somehow been cursed.

I started back playing the family, saved it and sent Marcus to China for an opportunity.  He didn't show  up.  No problem, I had saved it, right?  Well, when I clicked to get out, out of habit I say yes to save town.  That overrode my last save of just before he left, so now I have to go to an earlier save, which had bee over an hour and half back.  A lot had happened in that time.

I have tried other families sending them to China and they make it there fine, it is just the Cage family for some reason can't go back to China.  Which I guess will remove some of the LTW that require traveling to China *sigh*

I think it is connected to the sink hole in front of the house in MF.  They had no problem in going to China before it happened.  The after they came back it was quite often someone would sink into the ground there and just disappear.  Resetsim worked to get them back most of the time.  One time Brigit didn't come back with the reset, but when the school bus came to pick them up for school, off she went and came home, whole. 

I'm keeping this family and going to continue them but am seriously thinking of buying a timer and doing another family where every 15 or 30 minutes I will be reminded to save. 

And I want to do one where if I do use the Midas Touch it is very limited.  Same with such items as life fruit and the Fountain of Youth.  Such as if I use it when they become Elder and it takes them back to YA, then I think I can use the Instant age to take them to Adult, not sure so need to check it out. 

I'm adjusting to the normal lifespan.  I have always played on a much longer lifespan, YA, Adults and Elders had 45 days, teens had 25, children had 20 and toddlers had 9, one day for each book.

Looking back, I worded it in a way that was confusing, so it is understandable you thought I wasn't playing on normal.

Another wondering if this is allowed.  I thought I had read somewhere what we could do in that area, but couldn't find it, so checking.

I am so frustrated with the Cage family, most of in MV is my fault, I keep forgetting to save and then lose several hours work.

Anyhow, due to being so frustrated with them, I am going to work on another family.  Talk about being surprised, I rolled for the town jump to start in MV.  Chose a couple that have a RI and are living together. 
The only problem I see is that their home is so small, and there is no room to go up.  It is a 20 by 15 lots. 

Are we allowed to move them one time to a lot or a house that has room for another bedroom to be added?

Or do we have to keep them where they are and find a way to make it work?  Can't find where it says what we are to do.

Hoping I can move them, but not going to hold my breathe  ;D

I need to go to bed, can't stop yawning

Yes, you can move the Founding Family to a house...that they can afford...to accommodate a larger family. See the start up rules for adding any needed Simoleans.

Just a few questions. My Town Jump heir is now a young adult but her spouse-to-be is still a teen. Can she wait for him to age up (He's no more than 6 days younger than her) or does she need to frantically find someone else?

Can we move family members out once we move to the new town and build the rest of the family an affordable house as well? What I'm thinking of is buying the heir and her spouse a house, bringing the whole family with them and going into edit town before I place them to build them an affordable house. Would I be able to do that?

Thanks in advance!

Edit: Does the spouse have to be an original townie of the neighborhood or can it be someone who moved into town?

I'll give my two cents on it and Judewright can correct me where I am wrong.

For the heir, I would look for another mate while you wait for your chosen mate to age up.  If you find someone, you can grab that townie and not worry about having a mate for your heir.  You can work toward your heir's LTW, reading skill books or working on what is needed, such as athletic skills, that are required for the LTW.

I know that you can do either with family members, take them with you or leave them, except the parents, they have to go with the new heir and their mate.

I think you are allowed to move them to a temporary home, I did that, while the home I had planned for them was being finished.  I had a home that I had built for an earlier game but needed some tweaking, so I moved them for a day to a very small starter home and then moved them to their new home.  I had gone ahead and moved them as I wanted to get the female pregnant and was having problems in the old house (don't like moving pregnant sims).   

Since they had over $300,000 I had no problem in finding them a home, just wanted to do some changes to make it easier to take photos.  Put the house on a bigger lot (went from 30 x 30 to 40 x 40) which also allowed me to move the house to a better position, no longer in the middle of the lot. 
You don't have to take your home with you, you can do so or find a new one, and you can remodel it at any time, as long as you have the funds and don't have to use the cheat to get the money. 

Hope that is helpful to you, these can be fun to do, even though I am having trouble with one family and now lots of trouble with traveling; which I think is connected to installing IP, no proof except a correlation (which isn't causation).

Judewright can add in what I missed, correct me in any if I am wrong and I think it is okay for me to add in my two cents.
