So, a male of the pair I started with has died of old age. In the middle of the night, of course.

"So now that I woke you up, took your father and made your kids irreparably sad for the next two days, let me take a selfie." - Grim Reaper.

By the way, there's super easy way to get to 'friend' level with him if you have parenthood pack. 'Polite introduction' gets you so far that only two more friendly socials are enough.

The good thing is you never remember what weird things end in screen folder :

So, Vlad apparently has a new career instead of his usual booth vendor/mixologist :


And Akira Kibo was warm, thought about swimming, but must have gotten cold feet :

Vlad is a loner - why does he choose to play on a team? Consistency...yeah, what is that? Never heard of it. Is it like a plasma fruit?

So, I got to experiment a bit with the terrain tools. I moved my family to the 64x64 lot in Brindleton and took some time building. It's not much, I am a terrible builder, but I did what I wanted - mid-level pool terrace.
Also, it seems decorations wet bonkers.

The upper stairs bugger the hell out of me but the game does not allow me to start them in any different positioning because of some made-up intersection issues.
I'll probably post some more first person pics soon, but a taste for now...

Obviously, both still in the old house.

Great first person screenshots @TomasGrizzly!

Here's a first person screenshot of one of the twins in my main family, Maureen Sullivan, playing her Child Prodigy violin 8) (level 10 violin).

Before I return to first-person stuff, one side-story:
As mentioned in the previous post, I moved my family to the only 64x64 lot to have some space for terrain experimenting. One of their two dogs went outside to "do their thing" and dropped it right on the road before the house.
Two days of rain later, it turned into a trash plant growing in the middle of the road.


And now for some first-person pet stuff...
Rex (golden retriever) chasing his own tail while Spot (Dalmatian) just watches...

Spot and a mirror:


I'll have more in time and will try to see if I can get some decent shots on the trick moves of high-level cooking.

Oh, she could. It's just that Holly Alto is also the name of a Sims 3 premade teenage girl whose family is rich and (in)famous. And I simply found it funny to see Lilith in that role. She's a macho-woman in my game, very muscular. Also funny that a level 4 celeb was very generous with his tips when Don played - he was more interested in watching him than attending his fans.

Oh, it's good that she could get in.  I vaguely remember the last name Alto from TS3.

I'm trying out this new pairing - well, new to me at least. Can't wait to see what their kids will look like :o



The result is below and quite unexpected. The dog came in, shook, and naturally that created a pool under the child who was not wearing any shoes.

@Nindigo I've got children of Miko who inherited her pink hair (not in a played household-  maybe that makes the difference), so it's interesting to see the red.

I only wanted a snowy Winterfest! I was taken by surprised when the camera snapped to someone freezing to death. I first assumed it was a paparazzo. This is Stan #1.



This is Stan #3. (Stan #2 chose to freeze at the back door.) And... it's going to happen again.



Winterfest is an absolute horror show. I didn't mean this at all. I must either get rid of the Stan quirk or change the weather. If you have a celebrity with this quirk in a snowy climate... um... yeah. This will happen. Stans are not great sims - they seem to always be kleptomaniacs - but death after death for day after day seems a bit morbid. 
Various Forum Adventures:

Vlad's Nose story
Sims Eugenics II - the big chateau one
Vacuous Green house (I totes like this one)
Island Living Beachfront Mansion

It is a little thing of my own. I call it "Heart Foam". I shall not publish it. Farewell! Patience, Patience, farewell!

Exit Bunthorne.

@Heart Foam At least your game is eventful...

I'm having a bit of fun with the 'Sorcerer' and 'Book of Chaos' mods. I usually never play evil Sims, but I'm utterly bored with the game currently and made a nasty one. It has been entertaining so far.


Mocking Grim's rags. Judith Ward is a member of my Sim's club by the way, so apparently she is either evil, mean or a kleptomaniac.

I made a few share-worthy screenshots but keeping my rule of posting them three at a time maximum so here's the first batch.
Guess what music will Luke play after getting a present from Father Winter?

Random discovery: half wall as tall as a normal wall serves the same - I was surprised that I could hang a painting or a TV on it. Let alone putting an arch through it (before this, it was just reaching half its width)

The underpass in Brindleton bay in first-person. One of my sims decided to walk the dog there so I took a few shots (sharing only this one, so far). Taken from the dog's view.


As for what I'm keeping for other days, there will be a bit more first-person stuff, some funny faces and some funny decisions where a sim can do stuff.

To wrap this post up, a story only in words: Spot, the Dalmatian seen in some of my past screenshots, died of old age while one sim was freshly pregnant. So, I quickly saved the game and then had the pregnant sim go and "share the big news" with the reaper, expecting some harsh reaction about mocking him. To my surprise and disappointment, he was like "okay". Guess he's chill. Or maybe he was just happy that he got himself a "new" loyal dog...

From the beach near the 64x64 lot, goes below the road to one of the smaller lots.
EDIT: trying better description. If you turn the camera to have the beach on the top of your screen, the 64x64 on your right and the lot on a hill to your left, there will be a "valley" between those two lots, leading towards the beach with pier on the top side, and towards a road across that sub-zone on the lower edge. The underpass is under that road as the valley closes towards it, connecting it with the smaller lots on that side.
EDIT 2: Maybe this will help?

So, the second batch of screenshots:
Where's the best place for doing the homework? Seems it's not the large table right behind them...

Old screenshot, titled "so close to losing my sh*t"

And to close it off: there are two kinds of dogs.

During his life, Spot (the Dalmatian, obviously) never used any kind of couch or pet bed to sleep on. Ever. And I had quite a surplus of them.

That's today's share of my treasury. More funny stuff to come Soon TM.

Well, in my current save, Father Winter won the lottery...
Then, he gave one of my sims a yoga mat, lol.
Now that I mention wellness, here's a double-PoV screenshot of giving/getting a foot massage.

And likewise double-PoV screenshot of teens working on a school project.

Olivia Kim-Lewis as a young adult and Diego Lobo have seemed instantly fond of each other in this particular game of mine.
