The Grey Random Town Jump-The Final Town (May 1)-COMPLETE
« on: October 01, 2016, 04:58:36 PM »
Hello everyone! With the conclusion of the Sakura 4x4, it's a time for a new project! This time around, I have a Random Town Jump. I was trying to do everything randomly, so, in addition to the traits being random, the next town was also selected randomly. I also did have a story progression mod on to keep things interesting. Also, as with all of the rest of my stories, there will be a name theme. What better name theme is there for a RTJ than places?

For the first town, I rolled...Moonlight Falls!

Now, let's meet our founders.

This is Odessa Grey.



Her traits are: Over-Emotional, Irresistible, Natural Cook, Savvy Sculptor and Ambitious. Odessa's Lifetime Wish is to become a Culinary Librarian.



Odessa's hubby is named Chandler Grey.



His traits are: Social Butterfly, Loves the Outdoors, Daredevil, Eco-Friendly and Athletic. Chandler's Lifetime Wish is to Become an Astronaut.



The first order of business for the happy couple was to work on bringing in the first potential candidate for heir. Each generation will be having at least two kids so that way I can decide between the two. Plus, it would be fun to hear from all of you lovely readers on who you would pick as the potential heir when it comes time to choose!



Afterward, Chandler got signed up for a job at the local military base and then began working on his athletic skills.



Odessa, meanwhile, met a bunch of the neighbors who had come to welcome the Greys to the neighborhood.



The couple enjoyed a nice dinner together before heading off to bed. It was the first of many, many meals that Odessa would be preparing while working toward her LTW of Culinary Librarian.



Being dirt poor, the Greys needed some additional sources of income, so Odessa began a garden of red berry beans.



There was a bit of a hiccup, however, while planting...



Nausea conquered, it was time for breakfast.



Heading back outside to tend to the garden after breakfast, Odessa discovered that the first potential heir was on the way!



Chandler was certainly in for a surprise when Odessa broke the news to him.



Chandler: Hey, great job, Odessa! *thumbs up*



The next few days were nothing but skilling and work so let's fast forward>>>>>ah, here we are! While tending her garden, Odessa went into labor.



It's off to the hospital we go, yay! After a bit, the first Grey-boo was welcomed into the family. Kingston Grey was born with the Brave and Disciplined traits.



The house they lived in was quite small, so Kingston and his future sibling would be sharing this room. For now, it wasn't too claustrophobic.



It was very apparent that this was Odessa's first child, as she didn't get how the whole crib thing worked...



Odessa: Don't worry, Watcher! I've got this under control.
Malley: Says the woman standing in the crib.



By some miracle Kingston made it to his toddler birthday. I was really looking forward to seeing what genetics he would end up with, as I did custom hair and eyes for both Odessa and Chandler.





Kingston is a perfect mix! He got Chandler's hair (which actually has black highlights, though the picture in CAS of Chandler didn't show them because I added them afterward...) and Odessa's eyes. Such a cutie-pie!



Hope you enjoyed the first installment of The Grey RTJ! See you next time!!

Kingston will grow up around all sorts of interesting sims in Moonlight Falls! 

Glitches like you had with the crib are always so funny. Sims just love to break the laws of physics.

I really enjoyed that. Kingston is so cute (maybe that's why Odessa walked into the crib, she was distracted by his cuteness!)
I like the naming theme too. Good luck for future updates!

Yeah. This seems to be shaping up into a nice story. With many supernatural and other stuff. Through randomizing traits and towns you end up with unique and interesting stories and personalities that you won't get otherwise. And mixed-town sims often end up looking really good and unique.  ;) Like, at the end they've got, say, an eye color from Riverwiew, hair color from Hidden Springs, skin color from Lucky Palms, ear\cheek\chin shape from Sunlit Tides, mouth from Dragon Valley, nose from Aurora Skies, eye shape from Monte Vista, and body shape from Midnight Hollow, for example.

I want to make a RTJ where I don't only randomize the towns, but I also randomize whatever family\household I start with between all premade sims, as it should be. (Like, for moonlight falls you write the household\family names such as Nix, Wolff, Goodfellow, Van Gould, MacDuff, Ivy, Durwood, Goth... and use the randomizer to shuffle 'em up) But, RTJ featuring CAS sims are also cool with me, although to me that stuff should mostly be premade-based eventually!  ::)

Great start and good luck with this RTJ . Can't wait to see the babies grow up. And it was hilarious to see Odessa stuck in the crib. Looks like she is over protecting her children . Bookmarked and waiting for next update.

I've heard of parents co-sleeping with their babes, but not in the crib.

Thankfully, Odessa seems to get the hang of that whole parenting thing by the time the second kid comes around.

Thanks for creating such an awesome challenge! I hope you enjoy my play through :)

That's one of the things I'm loving about this challenge. It's awesome to be able to cram as many original townie genes into one family as possible. You certainly get some interesting looking sims!

Moonlight Falls, Part II

WARNING: This chapter will be filled with adorable toddler spam. Read at your own risk of a cuteness overload. You have been warned  ;D

Chandler got started on teaching Kingston his toddler skills on his day off from the military.



Kingston didn't seem too into it, though.



And now, toddler spam!



Is this kid not absolutely adorable?



Odessa and Chandler certainly thought so!





Despite the odor wafting from Chandler, the happy couple went about bringing in the second potential candidate for heir.



Were they successful? You'll have to wait to find out!

In the meantime, Kingston continued making progress on his toddler skills.



Apparently, Odessa was having a toddler cuteness overload...or was she?



Odessa: Bathroom!
*Runs off*
...okay...let's move on, then.

More toddler cuteness, since Kingston's baby days were coming to a close.







There was a brief interruption, however, when Odessa received confirmation that baby #2 was on the way!



I don't really have a caption for this one other than the fact that it just struck me as funny.



Odessa, apparently, laughed so hard that it sparked her labor.



Odessa: I wonder what to make for lunch today?
Maid: OMG WHATDOIDO?





After a bit, Odessa and Chandler welcomed little Havana into the family. Her traits were Perceptive and Insane.



A short time later, it was time for Kingston's child birthday.









But wait! There's more! Havana had her birthday right after Kingston.







What will they look like? Who will Havana take after? Since we've hit the 25 photo limit, you'll have to wait until next time to find out!

Muscle shirts can add to a character. It fits some sims. Saw it a long time ago on a Pokémon themed legacy if I remember correctly.  ;)

There was definitely a nice combination of genetics in this generation, which you'll see in this chapter.

There's an even better glitch coming up in this installment :)

Muscle shirts can definitely work for some sims, but I find more often that not that that's what my child sims age up into  ::) And a pokemon legacy sounds amazing.

Moonlight Falls, Part III

In the last chapter, both Kingston and Havana had their birthdays, but their makeovers had to wait due to reaching the picture limit. So, here is the long awaited wardrobe update!

First, Kingston.



For this birthday, Kingston gained the Hydrophobic trait. *shrugs* Could be worse, I guess.



Next up was Havana. I love how the genetics were distributed in this generation. Kingston got Chandler's hair, but Odessa's eyes and face shape. Havana, on the other hand, got Odessa's hair and Chandler's eyes and face.



With Havana as a toddler, it was time to start working on her toddler skills.



And, for once, there was a parent teaching his child to talk without doing so in front of a fuming potty. Way to go, Chandler!





No fuming potty, but weird contortions for teaching Havana how to walk...



Apparently, my sims have a thing for the sandbox. I mean, the Matsuri's were playing in it when I updated my other story  :)



Kingston was a good kid. He would help out around the house, even willingly changing the dreaded potty.



He also liked to play with his sister, which was too cute for words.





But, when Kingston was at school, Havana was able to find other ways to occupy herself.



I know you're tired, Chandler, but we need to do the obligatory Attack of the Claw shot.





Despite being busy with work and kids, Odessa and Chandler still found time to spend together.





On her days off, Odessa took Havana out in her stroller and she loved every minute of it.



Ah...glitchiness...

The score is Odessa glitch, 2; Chandler glitch, 1...



Glitches aside, it was time for more birthdays! Havana was celebrating her child birthday and Kingston was celebrating his teen birthday.













...Aaaannnddd, we've reached our picture limit again...whoops! Outfit and trait updates in the next chapter  ;D

Moonlight Falls, Part IV

Back where we left off, Kingston and Havana both had their birthdays and then got updated wardrobes and hairdos.

Here is Kingston.



Kingston rolled the Kleptomaniac trait for this birthday. Could be worse, I guess.



Here is Havana.



She gained the Bookworm trait. Havana wins this birthday trait roll.



She immediately rolled a wish to try out her new trait and began working on her writing skill.



Kingston on the other hand...well, at least he wasn't trying out his Klepto trait...



With the two kids having their birthdays, Odessa's adult birthday got lost in the shuffle. She woke up a little before midnight in order to celebrate and screw up my camera angle when the camera auto-panned to her.



That also meant that the whole household had to get up and come party too. It's not like you guys have work or school the next day that you have to be up early for or anything...really...



And for her adult birthday, Odessa apparently lost her hair.



A quick trip to the mirror and all was fine, thankfully...at least until the next day when Kingston decided to play a prank and rig the computer. Poor little Havana fell for it.





Anyway, once Havana regained her composure, she headed out to the kitchen to have dinner with Kingston and Chandler. Somehow, Chandler and Odessa got to be a day apart, so Chandler had his adult birthday that evening.





He lost his hair too. I guess he and Odessa were meant for each other.



Following Chandler's emergency make over, Kingston was off to the prom.



Prom went really well for Kingston. He was named Prom King and had a great time. Plus, he lucked out because the school actually scheduled the event for a weekend instead of the middle of the week like normal. That meant that he could have fun during prom and not have to wake up insanely early for school the next day. Needless to say, he was in a good mood the following morning. Havana was too, still giggling about how Chandler lost his hair the previous night.

Havana: Ha! Dad lost his hair!



Despite the computer prank, Havana and Kingston were really good friends.



Hopefully, as Havana got ready to celebrate her teen birthday, their relationship would remain amiable.









Havana, if she hadn't gained the Born Saleswoman trait, I could have sworn she would have rolled Rebellious since she decided to sabotage her wardrobe picture by blinking...



There we are. Much better.



That's all for now. See you in the next chapter.

Great to see the kids grown up now. Wish they will use their new traits wisely. Hope Kingston don't go bad on his kleptomaniac trait. It was funny to see Odessa losing her hair after aging up to adult. Looking forward for next update.

The two kids made it really hard to pick between them for the heir/heiress. I'm looking forward to seeing which one you all would pick when it comes time to jump towns.

Moonlight Falls, Part V

Greetings! So, if you read the Matsuri's in my decadynasty, you'll already know that I've been away from Sims for the past month due to National Novel Writing Month and Pokemon Sun. But, now that those are out of the way, it's back to simming for me!

To start off, Kingston rolled a wish to learn how to make some potions and increase his logic skill.



And this, kids, is why it is important to practice.
Kingston: Hardy-har, Watcher.



Havana was now a teenager, so she was able to attend prom. She opted to go in her athletic wear. I guess it could be worse.



She was voted Prom Queen and had a really nice time.

Back at home, Havana and Kingston worked on their homework together. They still had a really good relationship, even through mood swings and Havana's insane ramblings.



At some point or another, the family got a nice chunk of change. Seriously. I looked at how much money they had and it was suddenly quite a bit. So, the house got a bit of an update.





The money came at a good time because the family was in need of a new tv after Chandler's stench broke the old one.



So, Havana wore her athletic outfit to go to prom and her formal wear to play in the sandbox...Have I mentioned how much I love sims logic?



Back in the land of the sane, Odessa continued working on her cooking skills and increasing her knowledge of recipes. She completed her lifetime wish of the Culinary Librarian.





In addition, Odessa reached the top of her career and got the fancy fridge. For some reason, she doesn't look too thrilled *shrugs*



Okay, so we didn't completely make it back to the land of sanity. It was more like a detour.







Oh, my sweet Havana...

Moving on! It was time for Kingston's young adult birthday.





He was one of those rare teens that actually didn't look terrified to be aging up into an adult.



If only he knew how his hair was going to disappear, I highly doubt he would have been this happy. Hair loss really is genetic.



Much better! Here is young adult Kingston.



His final trait was Night Owl and his lifetime wish was Physical Perfection.



That's all for now! See you next time :)
