Periwinkle and Banana had a successful trip to France.  Banana spent most of her time with her nose buried in Nectar Making books.  She also practiced her speech for Charisma and transformed metals, which eventually led to an increase of $400,000 to the family funds.







Periwinkle sculpted enough to reach level 10 in her sculpting profession when she returned home and sold all of the sculptures at the Consignment Shop.  She's 7 days from Elderhood and only needs to finish her best friends requirement.



Chartreuse has achieved her Master of the Arts Lifetime Wish with level 10 Guitar and Painting.  I started feeling bad for her because her life seemed lonely and sad.  Indigo at least had her career to work on and make her happy.  Chartreuse spends a lot of time wandering through the house looking at paintings and gems.  I decided she should have a Mid-Life Crisis and changed two of her traits.  Now she's Insane, Excitable, Inappropriate, Dramatic, and a Party Animal.  She took a job in the music industry and hopes to make it to Rock Star before she dies.  Something got wacky with her age, too.  She's 7 days behind Periwinkle and Oliver.  No idea how that happened, but I'm going to age her up on the same day that Periwinkle ages.



See her new tattoo?



Banana reached level 10 in Nectar Making from reading the skill books.  When she got back home, she was able to start making nectar right away in her new basement set up.





Banana's SuperMax skill will be a little tricky.  The Vizard of Vine skill journal challenge calls for her to use 400 bunches of homegrown grapes in making nectar.  My plan had been for Carina to grow all of Banana's nectar fruit.  From what I've read on the Forum, a Sim just has to harvest the vine for it to count as homegrown.  So, Carina will plant and tend the fines, and Banana will harvest them.  She'll have to complete the challenge before she reaches level 10 in Gardening so that she doesn't disqualify Carina's gardening SuperMax.  I've got the gates to the Crop Circles locked so that Banana can't get to any other plants when she's harvesting.  I'll also lock Carina out of the vinyard when she's harvesting so that she doesn't take any of Banana's grapes.  I didn't think this through well enough and it may end up being the end of my Dynasty if I can't get it to work out precisely the way I plan.  

I also upgraded Summer Hill Springs (again) and my game crashed when I finished (again).  Lucky me!  I get to upgrade Summer Hill Springs three times!  I did get some pictures of it to share before the game crashed.  Of course, I'll do it exactly this same way on my third attempt.

Here we have the small family cemetary in one corner.



This is the picnic and Gnubb playing area.



Trampoline and juice bar under a tree.



The playground.



The little island where pirates apparently landed long ago.  It wasn't very well planned for a takeover of the town.



The facilities building.



And lastly, fire pits circling a rock and flower garden.



Now, if you'll excuse me, I'll go recreate this lovely park.  Again.

Update:  After chatting with Metro, I found that the Vizard of Vine challenge won't be tricky after all.  First of all, he said that he thinks the challenge is bugged.  Secondly, homegrown is homegrown, no matter who harvests it.  Thirdly, gardening and nectar making are completely separate skills.  So, Carina will grow all the grapes and give them to Banana to make into nectar.  She will easily use 400 grapes while SuperMaxing this skill.  I'll keep track of it with paper and pen.

The tattoo would explain why her age is different. I thought the ban on them was for everyone too.

I can't believe I did something so supremely stupid.  I had noticed that Chartreuse was suddenly a week younger than Periwinkle, but didn't put it together at all until y'all said something just now.  I thought it was just some kind of age bug and was just going to age Chartreuse up on the same day Periwinkle aged up since they're twins and all.  She had a wish to visit the Day Spa and when I clicked on it I saw the option for a tattoo.  So, sure enough, I clicked it.  It didn't even grant her wish, either!  Even worse, I helped write the rules!  Gah!  How many times have I read over them?  Over and over.  What a stupid thing to do!

Chartreuse is mortal, yes.  But the rules don't specifically say that tattoos are banned only for immortals.  Mortals can't extend their lives at all.  My only chance to squeak out of this is if Metro lets me go ahead and age Chartreuse up with Periwinkle because they're twins, which would cancel out the extra week she got.  But if he says no, I'll accept it.  No special favors just because I'm the Forum Manager.

I talked to Pam quite a lot this morning on her issue and I'm allowing her to age up the twins together. It was a simple mistake. Pam simply forgot about the tattoo effect, so no big deal. There's no way I could see letting this Dynasty come to an end over a stupid tattoo. C'mon. I mean rules are rules, but in this case the solution results with the tattoo essentially never having the life extending impact at all if the twins age up together.

We are human and we can all make mistakes. So long as Chartreuse ages up with her twin its all back to normal.

Pam, I'm glad this has worked out fine.
About gardening, I did some testing before starting the dynasty. And you can have Banana with no gardening skills plant around 45 grape plants, weed them and harvest until she harvest a little more than 400 grapes and still have her on level 8 of gardening (water it with sprinkles). But if you just harvest without any skill then no increase will happend.
If you can use grapes any member of household planted and/or harvested, why don't you? I want to know this too, since one of my heirs will supermax Nectar Making.

And interior of your dynasty house is really great. Keep it up and lead them to the Hall of Fame!

Thanks everyone, especially Metro.  I'm so happy that I can continue with my Immortal Dynasty and qualify for the Hall of Fame.  I literally went limp with relief when Metro told me!  I'll have another update soon.  :)

Remember the boys Banana made friends with in elementary school who were potential husbands?  It turns out both are paperboys, which puts them both out of the running for me.  The blonde, Cody, completely skipped the Teen phase.  He went straight from Child to Young Adult.  Banana is about halfway through high school and there is only one boy who is suitable to be her husband.  Newcomer Dean DeLong is a hot-headed daredevil who loves the outdoors.  Not the best traits, but at least he's a regular townie and won't have crazy age issues.



Banana had to speed home in her flashy sports car after visiting him.  It was curfew time and she was cutting it close.



Now that Christopher, Kenny, and Indigo's graves are in the private cemetary, their ghosts have started the odd behavior of ghosts since Ambitions came out.  Instead of hanging around the cemetary, talking, and haunting things, they go immediately to the street and get into a car.  They zoom off to some random place and disappear.  Chartreuse tried playing her guitar in the wee hours of the morning, hoping a ghost of her ancestor would stay and listen.  But no.  They apparently have places to be.



Indigo's ghost driving:



Next, Kenny's ghost has somewhere to go.



And finally Christopher's ghost.  At least he drives a Big Lemon instead of a Sloppy Jalopy.



The upgraded Summer Hill Springs right across the street is a big hit.  Periwinkle is learning to fly.





Speaking of Periwinkle, she's only 3 days away from aging to Elder.  She snagged her 6th best friend and is only waiting to age up so she can get her portrait, ice sculpture, and photograph done.

One went to the Langerak lot and disappeared.  Another went to the Mosquito Cove lot and disappeared.  Indigo's ghost went to the hospital and floated inside.

Because of this odd behavior I find it difficult to photograph more than 1-2 ghosts at the time. In Egypt I tracked one ghost through desert for a few game hours, and in China they ride bikes!

Dean look nice, and his eye color is lovely, so next generation will be beautiful. Only thing I am picky now is face and eyecolor. Nothing else is inheritable and unchangeable.

They have a lot of cars he he I can see behind Christopher's ghost that garden is elevated, that is a nice touch!

Just a short update.  

Banana managed to snag the most eligible teenage bachelor in town.  Here's her first kiss with Dean DeLong.



She celebrated by opening a bottle of nectar for them.



She also met her cousin!  Ida Deppiesse is the daughter of Oliver's sister, Kristi Deppiesse.  Ida's father is Ethan Bunch.  Now, I haven't mentioned the Bunch family, but something odd happened with them when I first started my game with Carina as a young adult.  I got one of those notices in the upper right corner that the Bunch family had decided to move to the suburbs to get away from the hustle and bustle.  It said that they could still be called and invited to visit, but that they wouldn't live in town anymore.  Ever since then, all of the Dreamweavers have met a member of the Bunch family either at work (Indigo) or at school.  They don't seem to age.  Or at least they age very slowly.  I believe Ethan was a co-worker of Indigo's and now he shows up in the family tree and he's not elderly.  There's still a Bunch girl in high school, too.  It's just odd.

Anyway, Ida has a strong resemblance to Banana.  Here's Ida first.



Now Banana from the same angle.



And finally, both girls side by side.



I think they'll be best friends.
