Sunburst Dynasty - Shining Forever in Twinbrook (June11)
« on: December 28, 2010, 01:51:16 PM »
Wunn Sunburst: The Beginning, again.

Hello. Many of you may recognize me. I have recently been moved to Twinbrook for a new start at my Eight Generation Immortal Dynasty. I don't remember much of my time in Riverview but I have this consuming need to read and reread "the list" every day. At City Hall, while picking up my "list" and lot assignment, I am informed of a lovely young Racket lady aging up in one week. That should be just enough time to get myself settled and started on my Immortal journey.





There is much to be done before this lot is ready for a lady's presence, so I will be off. I have plans of fishing, gardening, and finding every precious gem and butterfly I can. But first, I'm off to see a painter.



The Military can not provide Marc Brandt with the time and creativity to pursue his love of painting. He is more than happy to move in and help me with my project, especially since it means he can paint all day, every day.

Wunn: Week 1

This week there is much activity on the home lot as Marc gets himself set up for painting and sculpting. We buy a couple beds, a fridge, and build a small bathroom. Welcome to our bachelor pad!

I head off in search of fishing spots. The beach has nothing.



I find a good spot in the reeds and swamp. This small pond has a large variety of fish to get me started on my lifetime wish and is just a short cab ride from home. Perfect. I catch my first fish here - a minnow. Can you see it?



And I find a beautiful purple butterfly!



~

Today is laundry day, nothing says "Ladies come and get a piece of this" like dirty underwear and crusty socks.



And since I'm here by myself, I have fun while the washer is going.







I also start my garden after a trip to the community garden for plant-ables.



Marc and I usually have breakfast together in the mornings. Cereal. Always cereal.



Today, while Marc is out for some fun and proposing to girlfriend Amy Bull ...



I find my way to the Racket mansion and meet the lovely Lolly.



It is a successful week!

Until next week, find the bowl.

Wunn: Week 2

The changes are starting this week! First, Marc spends a morning with his fiance and meets his little girl, Cherie Bull.



Second, I catch up with Lolly walking in to town and I stop her for a chat.



She's grown into a beautiful young woman! A little special persuasion:





And the girl is all mine!







We head on over to the Bistro for a wedding dinner and find a crowd of well-wishers. Except, Lolly's brother Shark, he jeers.



[L-R: Andre Wolf, Emerald Greenwood, Sofia Carlton, Shark Racket]

At home, it's off to the mirror and dresser for a makeover for Lolly.



She's quite dashing if you ask me!

She spends her days at the park cooking for all the picnic goers. Seems a stove without a counter isn't conducive to meal preparation.



Finding Marc's old - but still brand new - easel, Lolly takes it upon herself to break it in for him.



I cap off the week with a very successful trip to the graveyard after midnight!



Next week: we build a house!

Lovely restart lily, this beginning is unusual, and it looks like you think it through, having everything covered and much more relaxed gameplay than usual dynasty start. Great job.

How awful to have to restart after so many generations but you're doing well with the new story. Smart to move in an extra person instead of two sims learning every skill needed. Good choice with Lolly too, if I remember it right she has much better traits than the rest of her family.

Wunn: Week 3

Things are moving right along this week. Lolly spends a few days running around Twinbrook taking pictures of everything. At the beach she stops for a small break.



I find someone in town to come out and build me a functional pond for my Deathfish. Well, future Deathfish, right now I only have it stocked with Alley Catfish. Landscaping will also happen later.



Lolly works at the Bistro and fancies the graveyard at night. The place makes her sick though.



Marc breaks yet another ice sculpture. At his rate he'll never get to 25! At least he feels bad about it.



Lolly and I kick off my birthday celebration with some dancing. Yes, we are pregnant! Lolly is a little anxious about raising children with her family still alive and living in town but I reassure her that they'd have to get through me to get anywhere near our children!







Pretty dashing, if I say so myself!

Without too much trouble, Lolly and I bring home two beautiful baby boys! Please meet Tu and Theo Sunburst.



Lolly gets right to work sweating off the baby weight.



~

Now, as promised, a tour of our little home.

View from the road, pond and garden to the left.



The entrance/Marc's art hall.



Wrap-around eat-in kitchen. The smell of Lolly's cooking coming from the fridge.



Living room/Boys' temporary bedroom.



Master bedroom off the living room, to the left of the kitchen. (Future Dining Room.)



Bathroom off the entrance hall. (Future placement of Stairs to 2nd floor.)



Lastly, Marc's bedroom off the entrance hall as well. (Future Main Bathroom on first floor.)



Next week: raising 2 toddlers.

Thanks Esther and Rachel.  :)

I have twins on purpose for the second generation - always need someone to create the museum pieces for the second generation heir and this is an easy way to do it.

For the house, I'm going for a Victorian Mansion when all is said and done.

Wunn: Week 4

It seems I hardly get to fish much these days, only when everyone is settled into bed do I find time for some early morning fishing at the graveyard. The garden is also suffering this week. What has us so busy?

Two precious baby boys! They aged up to toddlers early in the week. First little Tu.





Then little Theo.





The boys seem nearly identical except for Tu has my hair colour and Theo has Lolly's hair colour.

They love playing with the doll house. Best investment ever!



I get potty training duty since Lolly is back to work at the Bistro.





Twins are great - there's one for each of us. Not only do Theo and Lolly share hair colour, they also share a favorite colour - red.



Lolly takes Tu to the library for some quality time reading books about painting.



I help Theo master his wobbly legs for a faster form of locomotion.



Lolly then takes charge of Tu's walking lessons.



Tu's first word have me wondering about his future destiny - shoes, really? He looks cutely confused as well.



Theo's first word leaves me sad - he probably won't get the honour of a wife and marriage.



~

Marc finds time between portraits and ice sculptures to have dinner with his son, Ronald, [I think] the middle brother.



Next week: The boys go to school.

Wunn: Week 5

The boys have another birthday; they're getting so big! Tu is supposed to sit for another ice sculpture attempt by Marc.





That gives new meaning to growing pains!



For some unknown reason Theo is a day younger than Tu so we have to help him out with a cake.







Oops, looks like he prefers his pajamas.

We get rid of the cribs and buy the boys a grown-up bed. They still sleep in the living room though.



The boys head out for their first day of school.



Lolly helps Tu out with his homework.



Before heading out for her run.



During one of his daily trips to the consignment shop, Marc picks up a harvester. The clerk there says it works like a vacuum. Marc thinks I'd like to use it in the garden.



It is AWESOME!!

When the manufacturers say the shrinkomatic fish bowl shrinks anything to fit - they aren't kidding!



Lolly has her adult birthday while out collecting butterflies.



And I was told girls were the worst for this! What is it with my boys and shoes?



Next up: I buy and upgrade Hollowlog Springs.

Wunn: Still Week 5 - Hollowlog Springs gets bought and upgraded!

So I accidentally buy the wrong fishing pond! Serves me right for trusting the real estate agent and buying a property sight unseen. I mean to buy Guppy Gills Pond because it has two fishing spots, is home to both Alley Catfish and Angelfish, and I have lost track of the hours I have spent fishing there. Instead, I buy Hollowlog Springs, up by the Military Base. I have never even been there!

On the other hand, I currently have perfect specimens of the species of fish found at Guppy Gills Pond so there is no need for me to go back there. I do not have perfect specimens of most of the fish found at Hollowlog Springs, so my purchase will see much use after I have caught and sold enough Deathfish to launch me to the height of self-employed fishing.

Welcome to Wunn Stop Fishing Pond.

Lovely stone entrance complete with picnic area.



To the left of the entrance is a marshmallow roasting while watching the stars area.



Further up the path from the entrance is the second picnic area, with a better view. Note the bathrooms - they are camouflaged quite nicely.



Lastly is a small children's play area. It is well lit so parents can keep a close eye on their young ones.



It is quite safe, I assure you.



Next week: Boys become teens.

I only get to see little red Xes instead of pictures, and I'm shore they are great so I'm sad not to see twins, or house. Anyway, I'm glad you are progressing so good, and it is one of the good things with restart, you get to plan ahead and develop much better strategy! Please do something with pics, I'd love to see them!

@ Anushka: Is it all of the pics in this thread that you can't see or just the last update? I haven't done anything different with the pics so I don't know what could be wrong. Sorry.

@ Rachel: I never thought of it being a water slide. Awesome idea! I shall have Wunn move the slide.

@ Esther: I do have a better strategy this time but I'm still finding it a little boring because, even though the second generation is male this time, nothing much seems to have changed. Playing with Marc is fun though. Good luck on your restart.

Thanks for reading gals!
