Seems like Jinni has an extra child named Ifrit  ;D

So true! It was great to see how lovey-dovey they became and then Ifrit would do something childish - I randomly rolled his Jock trait and didn't realise how fun childish could be.

How many drones did you need?

I needed 39 but had 40 in total.

I have a domination dynasty that I'm doing as a side project and I have the same number.  It always seems like such a tremendous goal to achieve, especially since they're only at three kids right now...Best of luck to you as your progress toward your goal  ;D

Thank you very much!  ;) When I first realised I'd need 14 RD I almost quit and started looking for a smaller town, Hidden Springs is just too beautiful to give up on but I got there in the end. I'm just stuck on what to do for the epilogue, I took a few screenshots but nothing else  ???

Reproduction Day: Six



This reproduction day started with excitement and ended with, "Thank the Gods that's over,"


The prospect of sculpting material into beautiful creations soon became tiring and repetitive. Even when we were given chainsaws, instead of rejoicing we groaned and covered our ears with the most expensive noise-cancelling headphones we could find.






We were grateful when we could finally pose for our collection pieces.






And even more joyous to bring home our beautiful little girls.

I like the pose of the girls from this reproduction day.  Really cute  :)

It's one of my favourite poses to use for friends and siblings. This RD was very boring  :(

Reproduction Day: Seven



Ifrit and I decided to do something a little more exciting than our last miserable reproduction day. We signed up as singers and each bought our own guitars and started strumming away tunelessly.


Ifrit had no problems performing Sing-A-Grams but I was a little embarrassed and because of that I failed my first few clients who smiled politely and said it was nothing to worry about.







As we worked our way up the career ladder we built a stage to practise for our live acts and even called our children for reviews. Mammon was kind enough to give us tips on crowd-pleasing songs to use , special effects and of course the stage set up.





I went for a Gothic setting for my show at Flying V. It helped to see my children shouting encouragements and even staying several hours after the show as I got out my guitar and set my cashbox to one side.





Ifrit got to perform at a SimFest. He had a steampunk vibe going. I was jealous not to have been able to audition but that didn't stop me from cheering him on and throwing roses onto the stage. At the end of his performance he picked them up and blew me kisses.





We then spent all day and night to bring in §25k each. It was easy to complete when we threw parties or found large gatherings of Sims. I don't think I'd ever seen so many Sims in the usually empty parks around Hidden Springs before.

Aww!  Ifrit blew kisses to Jinni while on stage!  How cute!  I don't think they dislike each other as much as they claim  ;)

If Herit behaves herself I'm sure they'll have a happily ever after :D

Reproduction Day: Eight



While Ifrit and I sketched design ideas for our new career our thoughts went back to the first two weeks of our lives together. We were now much richer but all our savings were spent on our children so we decided for the next reproduction day we would defiantly have to travel abroad - there was one place we both wanted to visit.





I met with Eunice Pertridge outside her home to discuss the renovation of her bedroom. She had grown from a sour young woman to a mature elder, casting aside her dislike for Ella and had moved into a new house she'd paid for with her own money - well, she was a thief so I assume it wasn't all her own.





I decorated Eunice's room with delicate flower patterns, an expensive bed she'd thank me for after a good night's sleep and kept the decor simple with just one rustic painting and glass furniture to enhance the room's space and to add a little sophistication.





When we weren't working on commissions, we created potions - particularly young again potions as we knew we were only halfway through the challenge by now.





Ifrit had a much lazier approach with work. He'd done a splendid job for Dennis Chesterfield's Edwardian style kitchen but he hadn't bothered with ordering the cabinets and appliances in fresh new colours. I'm sure Dennis wasn't entirely too happy with the default colours but he paid well enough for Ifrit to reach his final promotion.





We still needed quite a lot of money so we took up painting again to sell at the consignment store, Ifrit no longer needed to pay fees so it was all profits from then on.
