EeyoreWrite is a cutie!  I had those same problems with my Consignment Store at the end.  It worked fine for all of the Immortal Dynasty Challenge, then stopped working about a week ago.

I had the same problem in my first run-through with my Dynasty. Did you try deleting the register and placing a new one? How about deleting the lot and placing another consignment store in town?

The same thing happened to me when a 2nd member of my household tried to consign her paintings.
When I canceled all my consigned items (with the 1st sim that used the store, don't know if that's important), I could once again consign stuff.
I'm not sure if this would work for you, or if it was just a fluke, but maybe you can try that.

I think the consignment store stops working when you have made too much money off of it. It detects when your coming back and completely shuts down operation.

I had the consignment store glitch which cleared up when I cancelled some old consignments, it seemed they were not properly being mailed back to me so it stuck up the process, it worked normally afterward, so now I go back every third day with my seller, clear out anything old, and post the new ones.  Hope maybe that works

Shhhh...Listen...Do You Hear an Immortal Sound?

With about 5 days left of EeyoreWrite’s Toddler stage, Chanda wanted to give her young daughter a nice jumpstart on skills. She purchased the yellow (painting) and green (writing) parenting books from the bookstore and carried EeyoreWrite into the Library for quicker reading of the books. First on tap was Frank I’m Not...



Chanda: “Imagine yourself at a computer. You’re thinking of a great story to tell. You place your hands on the keyboard...”
EeyoreWrite: “Frank I’m Not.”
Chanda: “Right. Your story has many sentences, all connected with a purpose.”
EeyoreWrite: “Frank I’m Not.”
Chanda: “Exactly. You pretend you’re talking to someone. And then you just start typing.”
EeyoreWrite: “Frank I’m Not.”
Chanda: “You’ve got it. The book’s all done and now you and Frank know how to write.”


Next up was EeyoreWrite’s Child birthday. Look who the game selected to bring EeyoreWrite to the cake? Mr. Sweater Vest himself. Recipe did a great job and managed not to drop our young author on her head during the celebration. I think it’s funny that Crazy just happened to have the Stir Crazy moodlet in the photo below. Queenie did as well. I  felt it was appropriate to change the moodlet’s name...



Crazy: “I gotta get out of here. I’m getting Stir Me.”
Queenie: “I gotta get out of here. I’m getting Stir Him.”


EeyoreWrite aged up to Child and I quickly gave her some longer hair. I can’t do the boy-length hair. Call me old-fashioned. I mentioned in the last update that EeyoreWrite’s eye color was identical to Chanda’s, but forgot that Sound also has light brown eyes. One thing is for sure — she clearly just stepped out of the Bella Bachelor cloning pod. After you play Sims long enough all Sims just start to look the same. Who’s with me on that one?



Now that EeyoreWrite was a Child is was time to get her book on. Her traits at this point are: Artistic (a bonus trait for Childrens’ books), Bookworm, and Family-Oriented (another bonus trait for Childrens’ books). Her last two traits at Teen and Young Adult will be Childish (the last bonus trait) and probably Couch Potato since she’ll be sitting on her duff a great deal of time.

I scoped out EeyoreWrite’s Skill tab and was a bit confused to only see the 3 Writing skills listed and no Painting. Then, it dawned on me that it was because of the Writing skill’s Books Read stat that triggered the listing. She had not done anything with painting yet — i.e. initiated the skill at the easel. So, I had her do just that. She needed one more painting skill anyway to begin her Childrens’ Books. She completed two small paintings to gain another skill level and called her 2nd painting, “Revenge of the Gummy Bear Tree.”



Our young author immediately headed to the computer in the kitchen and began working on her very first novel, a Childrens' Book called “I Jus Lernt to Right — U Kan Two.”



By the end of EeyoreWright’s first week of school she had written 4 additional Childrens’ Books to finish the Specialist Writer Challenge. In no specific order of global importance, those books were:

• Barney’s Hip Hop Simlish Dictionary for Kids: Fo’ Shizzle Ma’ Little Simmies
• Theoretical Physics for Your Hyperactive Child
• A Young Girl’s Guide to Mastering the Toilet: Sitting Down on the Job
• A Young Boy’s Guide to Mastering the Toilet: Stand Up and Get Noticed

Next up? Sound’s Elder birthday. Wow, where has the time gone for our former Rock Star? This is the big one. For a special treat instead of the same old drab Manly Estates birthdays, I had the entire household go to a former special spot for Sound — the front of the Theatre...



Sound played for tips all day long, and then the big moment came. Quite a crowd had formed by that time which is exactly what I was hoping for...



Senile Dementia has already set in for Sound as he can’t even remember what function his hands serve. Oh, I did tell you guys about the new vampire content, right?



Upon returning to Manly Estates, Chanda lovingly shares some romantic feelings with Sound...



Chanda: “There’s the mirror, Ice Age Man. Let’s fix you up before I call for a taxi.”

Now, we’re talking. Elton John and the Fonz just had a baby and here he is...



The Elder portrait was Sound’s last Ambrosia requirement. It took Recipe a couple days before a Masterpiece popped out. Now, it’s show time...



And Sound officially becomes the 6th Man Dynasty Immortal. Way to go, Sound!

As always, LOL! Happy birthday to EeyoreWrite and happy ambrosia-day to Sound!  :)
And it's pratically a crime not to have her first book called, well, Winnie-The-Pooh. :P Yeah, I'm sad enough to know what the first book was called  :D

Finally completely caught up. It was a marathon including me laughing hysterically, my boyfriend and parents looking at me funny and an over grown mango, but I finally managed to do it.  :D I think I should throw my own party.

Decisions, Decisions...EeyoreWrite Ponders Who Will Father Generation #8

Aging ups are always central to any Dynasty story, so I’ll hit you with two right off the bat. Chanda aged up to Elder while watching the PBS show, “This Old Immortal House”...



And then next on the birthday list was EeyoreWrite aging up to Teen. She’s really blossoming into a beautiful flower, isn’t she?



EeyoreWrite: “Ewww...it smells like a nursing home in here.”

The Teen stage for EeyoreWrite was basically just a continuation in her writing journey. I quickly sent her to City Hall to register as a self-employed writer, so her earnings would work towards her career goal.

About a week into her Teen stage she accomplished the Prolific Writer Challenge by finishing 20 books. Here’s a sampling of EeyoreWrite’s most recent Childrens’ Books...

• Passing Your Driving Test Using Your iPod
• Time Outs are Out...Parellel Time Outs are In
• Bullying 101: Spitballs vs. Paperwads
• The Real Truth About Truth or Dare
• So, You’re Ready to be a Toddler...Again?
• 100 Memorable In-Home Vacations
• The High Schooler’s Guide to Recognizing Moms vs. Dads
• Effective Family Meetings with Tantrums
• I Was Wrong: No More Family Tantrums
• Giving Spin the Bottle a New Spin
• Asking for Homework Help...at the Top of Mt. Everest
• Taking Your Lemonade Stand Global

Thanks to the Moodlet Manager always nearby, EeyoreWrite actually SuperMaxed writing while still in high school! My only real concerns with EW’s Ambrosia requirements are BlackOps (basically all school opps have already been done by other immortals, so I need to wait for the writing and painting ones to fire at YA) and the hefty funds needed for maxing the writing career (am I right, Forest Dreamweaver?).



So, with half of her Teen stage still ahead of her, EeyoreWright turns her thoughts to matters of the heart. Who will be the last father? Who will win her heart and help bring in the 8th generation? It was time to discuss this seriously with the two smartest men she knew...



Carl and Metro: “DUUUUUUHHHHHH!!!”

After the IQ level rose again somewhere between “lunchtime recess” and “Gong Show tryouts” the three Mans discussed EeyoreWright’s possibilities...



EeyoreWrite: “Guys, I need help deciding who will father generation #8. I still have a week left of high school, but as of now, there are only 3 male high school students and one is a vampire.”
Crazy: “Well, he’s out. He might as well be a Floor Hygienator.”
Recipe: “Have you become Best Friends with any of them yet?”
EeyoreWrite: “No. I’ve been writing day and night. I plan on focusing on that my last few days of high school.”
Recipe: “Hi there. What did you want to talk about?”
EeyoreWrite: “C’mon. I need help here.”



Recipe: “Well, I’ve got an idea that may help. Let’s invite them over. Turn it into a game show.”
EeyoreWrite: “WHAT?!”
Crazy: “Cool! Don’t forget the Floor Hygienator. It has to be a contestant.”
EeyoreWrite: (Sigh) “I wanted some serious suggestions, guys.”
Recipe: “This might actually work.”
Crazy: “Who’s been stealing my potato chips. I’m tired of it. STOP IT! THEY’RE MINE!”
