Great progress, KRae!

And you forgot that the basement is where people to go to hide from their in-laws. They'll have some great paintings to look at!

Good progress so far! I had a similar problem with my dynasty where tremendous lag and errors caused me to have to move towns. Kudos to you for sticking with it :)

Although I haven't posted heir 7 yet, I'm actually working on heir 8 and have had tremendous trouble with Sunset Valley as I explained in the main DecaDynasty thread. No sims were moving in and homeless townies were filling all the rabbit hole jobs. I did a factory reset and families have started to move in again, but I think well do a final move to Twinbrook when heir eight finishes his requirements. He got one of the two teenage girls in town (other than cousins) as a romantic interest at prom. His sister got the other. There are no teen boys at all. Not even NPCs. I'll post gen 7 later this week.

Wow, Generation 7 already! I was going to say I'm surprised Ethan Bunch was still alive, but then I remembered you started in Riverview.

Haha.  The money bags in that shot reminded me of Donald Duck's Uncle Scrooge McDuck.  Yep.  Nice retro cartoon moment

Now if I could just get her to roll in the money, toss coins in the air, and cackle.

I love the battle for the rocking chair. When I was doing the portrait-painting challenge, my painter had only a rocking chair to sleep in. Her subjects kept taking it, though, so I had to put in another one.

Sorry to hear about Sunset Valley not behaving (I probably should have said this when you mentioned it on the Decadynasty thread), but you're getting closer to the end! And you have only one more spouse to worry about after this.

Congratulations on making it to Heir 8.  It's not fun when the town gets so buggy and laggy that you have to town jump.  But, you're almost there!  The finish line is in sight  ;D

Thanks for the good wishes! I've played ahead and am well into heir 9. Twinbrook is behaving just fine. It's nice to see people about the town again. I'm enjoying the addition of WA and haven't had any travel bugs yet. Being able to use 3 adventure opportunities makes things a little easier.

Benton Caspian married and moved in with Sha Sha Mejia at 7 Sun Song Ave. Sha Sha was his romantic interest from prom. The only other teen in town (including NPCs) at prom time was Brie Coughlin who ended up being his sister's RI. The newlyweds immediately moved to Twinbrook at 28 Sweetwater Loop. Even though Sha Sha disliked children, it did not keep her from being a good mother to our heir, Island (born on day 4), and her week younger brother, Xander. By the way, siblings are being named after a variety of friends, nephews, and in one case my sister's cat.

Island Caspian  Heir Nine  Friendly, Heavy Sleeper, Workaholic, Family Oriented, Natural Cook

Both Honor Rolls - Yes

Ten NPC Friends - Mitzi Warden-Elixir Consignments, Rodrick Patten-Tattoo Artist, Sidney Ellison-Babysitter, Eboni Green-Newspaper Deliverer, Allyson Israel-Maid, Barb Dwyer-Party Dancer, Jasper Greenfield-Paparazzi, Arnold Thorne-Social Worker, Abram Dunn-Burglar, Kelli Biggs-Pizza Deliverer

Ten Best Friends - Cho Sun Whun, Xander Caspian, Sasha Stapleton, Allistaire Pine, Tay Bayless, Monika Goddard, Jeffrey Castor, Thomas Castor, Peggy Stapleton, Lincoln Baker

Ten Unique Black Ops - Outside Reading, All New Bi-Pedal Dishwashing Machine, New High Quality Ingredients, Constructing the First Emperor Mini, A Mini Mercurial Desire, The Mini Emperor's Honor Guard, From One Chef to Another, Some Fine Crepes, Falafel Portfolio, Surprise Cameo

Purchased Building - Little Corsican Bistro

Upgraded Property - Twinbrook Buy and Bargain Consignment Shop

Adult at Move - Yes

Tombstone - Benton Caspian-Large (90 days so much for being a marathoner)


Ten Unique Items - Beetles collected by Benton Caspian valued at 4,048

Island Caspian married the house next door at 32 Sweetwater Loop. Oh, and also Jeffrey Castor, one of its occupants. She met Jeffrey and befriended him when she was a teen and he a young adult. I had not considered him spouse material, but when she met him again as a young adult it was like Some Enchanted Evening - they were drawn to each other - spontaneous flirting, flower gifting, hugging, kissing. I mean after all his discovered traits at the time were Coward, Hotheaded, and Evil. What's not to like. At any rate, on day four our heir, Snohomish, was born followed a few days later by his sister, Julie.

Heir 10
Snohomish Caspian - Friendly, Perceptive, Bookworm, Loves the Outdoors, Genius

Both Honor Rolls - Yes

Ten NPC Friends - Martin Macon-Paparazzi, JC Cox-Babysitter, Aron Landrum-Newspaper Deliverer, Mitzi Warden-Elixir Consignments, Maricela Salas-(the world's worst) Maid, Sugar Free-Party Dancer, Alex Lemon-Social Worker, Adriana Dickens-Burglar, Arthur Banda-Mail Carrier, Pete Addison-Tattoo Artist

Ten Best Friends - Julie Caspian, Tonya Kaiser, Luther Wood, Rod Goddard, Kelsey Riddle, Diego Eddy, Kathleen Steiner, Ernie Havens, Mitzi Warner, Geoffrey McHugh

Unique Max Career - Private Investigator

Unique Supermax Skill - Writing

Ten Unique Black Ops - After School Employment, The Mystery of the Backwashed Toothbrush, The Case of the Hacked Off Client, The Case of the Tattooed Thief, The Case of the Snail Mail Jam, The Case of the Freshwater Pumps, The Bad Call, Ballot Buffoonery, Bye Bye Flamingo, The Case of the Price Gouged Produce

Purchased Building - Always Studious Bookstore
Upgraded Property - The Red Rendezvous

Adult - Yes

Tombstones - Jeffrey Castor  Medium (93), Island Caspian  Large (103)



Ten Unique Items - Heart-shaped Gems, Collected and Cut by Island Caspian value 14,530

Travel Days 4 to China

So on Week 91 Day 6 the Caspian Townie Decadynasty was completed with a total collection value of 254,056. Big Sigh of Relief!
