Since our islanders have been living off the land so to speak, Holokai has been learning to craft items by hand for the family. He has rebuilt the hut. With all the additions to the family, they needed more room. So first he built an additional 8x8 hut just for sleeping quarters. Alani and Holokai share a room with the little ones, and the boys and girls have their own room.
Next, he was able to craft some furniture for the main hut. He crafted a dining table and chairs. No more stone for these bottoms. To much relief, he was able to finally craft a tub that held the water that they carried in from the fire.  He is also watering on a manual toilet that works with water from the bucket. He has also made some sitting logs for the sitting area.

What a lovely little home!  The two hut set-up rather than multi-room concept was an interesting choice, but fits nicely with the idea that they're not from our culture and reality and that they might approach things differently.  I appreciate that level of creativity and insight.  Kudos!

While Holokai was out scouting the nearby islands, he ran across a bear. It was coming from an old park that he decided he would bring the family too.

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

When he arrived back at the island, he found a very pregnant Alani walking the walk barrier.

Seems they were trying to get this little bear out of the yard.

Lani: But papa, the mainland forest is on the Northern side of The Volcano. It gets cold there.

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Holokai: I know this daughter, but if we are to seek out others and see what it left, we must go as soon as we can and see what we find. Your brother needs to find other seeds for his garden.

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

A very very pregnant Alani was napping often. She is hoping it is just the coming summer heat and not another set of twins.

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Holokai thinks of their upcoming trip in the new canoe. He hopes his pregnant wife gives birth before they set out. 

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Kini: Papa says we are traveling by canoe to the mainland forest land soon momma.
Alani: So I hear. I hope that you and your brother age up tonight before we set out then.

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Kai: I am grown up enough to handle this trip. I am strong like papa.

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Alani: But big strong boys don't make messes in the hut son. Now clean this up before Papa see's it.
Kai: Yes ma'am.

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Just as the moon rose high in the sky, Kai and Kini aged to teens.

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Kai aged up with the Loves Outdoors Trait and goes right to the garden his mother started and plants some seeds that he had found.

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Alani gave birth shortly after and once again had twins, both girls. Kaipo (Darling) and Keola (Alive)

A couple of days later, Kini was the first to use the tub that Holokai crafted. It was worth carrying in the water.

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Alani tended to the twins, they would be aging up today.

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

In the mid-afternoon, Kaipo was the first to age up with Clingy trait.

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Then Keola with the Angelic Trait

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

By early evening, Holokai had everyone loading into the canoe for the trip to the mainland forest.

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

As the moon rose high into the sky late that night, they landed and hid the canoe. But the forest was as wiped as the other islands back in Sulani.
Alani took them to go and see what could be found and she would see about setting up a camp of sorts.

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Holokai found the great Forest Mascot still standing and stood and studied it. Then he looked for a nearby fishing spot so he could work on his Angling..

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

The Twins played around the campsite, Kini looked for wild plants to identify. And Holokai had already found two good fishing spots.

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Lani: So where did you find a tent?
Kai: I found it blown into the brush. I had to cut away a lot of weeds and branches. The tsunami must have blown it there.

Alani: The horseshoe pit just needed re-stacking.

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

After the long trip, the twins decided it was bedtime and headed into the tent.

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

But soon, a fire started outside and everyone came, poor Kini was already freezing to death with the change in the climate. No one was paying her attention because of the fire and she froze to death. Tragedy hit the family hard. They grouped together in the tent and cried all night.

Oh no!  Poor, Kini.  I really, really hate it when they die of the stupid Seasons weather!  I really liked Kini.  So sorry for their loss, (and yours).
What?  Grannies can't play games?

Congrats on making it to Low Tech, but oh, I'm sooooo sorry about Kini!  I had a few close calls with my founders when they changed outfits and I didn't realize it because all the outfits were the same!  That's part of the challenge, I guess, but still.

The next morning, our little group ventured off to the big woods. The twins saw a bear and of course, Kaipo, being the clingy one started crying.

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

The bear didn't stop, he just kept walking towards the water.

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

There, he stopped and just stared at Holokai.

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Holokai pretended he didn't see him, if it was fresh fish he was after, he would have to get his own.

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

After he walked away, Holokai, cast for the big catch.

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

After that, the family made their way back the islands of Sulani, Holokai's days were coming to an end and he wanted to make sure that his family was okay when he went.

Alani and Holokai spent plenty of "home dates" and showered each other with lots of romance. (Alani finished her Soulmate Aspiration)

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]  

The next evening Holokai was out working on his Mascot woodworkings when he all of a sudden felt different. He felt free and the winds of change were coming for him. He could hear the Island Spirits calling for him to come and join him.

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

The next day Lani threw herself into her yoga. It was the only way she could handle the passing of her sister and her father.

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Alani took up Floral Arranging. It helped to soothe her aching heart.

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Kai finally installed the handcrafted manual toilet that his father made.

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Then as soon as Alani was coming in the gates from her daily security checks. The island begins to shake.

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]
 
Lava flew thru the air and no one knew where it would land. Luckily after all was done, it had missed the house and just missed the stone wall.

Wait, does the volcano actually erupt and destroy things?!?!?  I don't have the Island expansion and it looks like I'm missing out on a lot.  Of course, my daughter just might be getting that expansion for her birthday, and I just might share an account with her...
I also don't have Seasons, and after hearing about your loss of young Kini, maybe that's not a bad thing!!

Yes, it does erupt, the screen shakes and it throws this huge lava balls and when they cool, you can break them open and get different items from it. OR, you can dare to touch it and while it's hot and tempt fate. LOL

Well, if they are dressed correctly they are fine. LOL But when they have to dress for the time period or the event, it stinks.

@sdhoey So far have missed that and joyfully so.  I was in the air, in an airplane when Mt. St. Helen's blew.  We had to detour to Canadian air space and then back down to Oregon.  Didn't realize the big hullabaloo until we landed, THEN I got scared! Lol. 

@PeregrineTook : Give your fortunate child Island Living.  She, (and you) will love it.  Very little substantive gameplay I've heard, but everything else is great.  Re: Seasons:  Avoid it like the plague.  It is a royal pain in the keister, boluxing up gardening big time, and the weather is dreadful unless you really like rain and gloom and cold.  The only good thing about it is winter is really beautiful.

R.I.P.  Holokai
I really like the way you've designed and decorated your lot! Gives me some extra ideas since I think we both use the same one.
I have yet to use the volcano lot trait but it does look to be somewhat interesting!

@kattiq Yes we use a lot of the same CC, but one page that has a lot more prehistoric CC, I can't download from because of cliklist or something. Her download way is something I am not comfortable with.

Great progress so far on your SimTech Dynasty!
I can imagine how having your sims running around half-nekkid could be disadvantageous in cold weather. So sorry about Kinni!

Thank you for having started this challenge! It allows me to show support for your storytelling without blaming myself for being 8 months behind in reading your "other legacy."
Best wishes on your challenge, girlfriend!
