1.1 Off To A Sweet Start



Meet Strudel Sweets.
Strudel: I have no back story because whatever higher being that is controlling me is too lazy to think of one. Let's just hope that I am here to stay.

Traits: Loves the Outdoors, Family Oriented, Green Thumb, Angler, Born Salesman
Likes: Classical, Salad, Irish Green



As usual he starts off by seeking a mate. See, he's so attractive that Jamie's stuck onto him!



As usual he proposes.



She pukes.



She finds that she's preggy.



And the kid is born!


... how boring.


In the mean time, Strudel tries to do interesting things...

but I do not have pictures of that. (how anti-climax!!)

In summary, he does some gardening (grows life fruit), fishing (stocking the fridge with deathfish) and then turns to sculpting towards the end of his YA life.



I like this picture. Bursting ice!!



After finally sculpting 25 ice sculptures, his 26th is of course of Jamie <3



Little Pie Sweets grew into a child. He's going to be the family chef so I thought this suited him.



Too bad he turned a little funny when he aged up ):



But it's nothing a little mirror and dresser can't fix.


I don't really have pictures for the first 3 weeks because my game crashed to the desktop with 1.5 sim weeks of work unsaved. During the second run I got lazy and frustrated so I didn't take alot of pictures. There are more later on now that it's no longer Strudel sculpting all day and Jamie painting all day.


Next up... The Teenage Woes of Pie Sweets

Keep plugging away at your story and I am sure you will make it.  I like the names and actually I was thinking of that same kind of name for another dynasty when I am through with the one I am doing.  Keep up the good work.
Is it true that cannibals don't eat clowns because they taste funny?

Thanks for all the encouragement! :)

1.2 The Teenage Woes of Pie Sweets



First he lives in the outdoors. Good thing there's no rain or show (and I have not seen a meteor).



His mum goes around zapping people.



His favourite childhood toy got turned into a vampire :(



His dad wants him to pose in his swimwear.



His neighbours hate his mum because she likes to use the miner at night. (I don't know why Yumi Sekemoto is here though.)



His mum decides to jump into a tunnel.


Most importantly... he dad wants him to select a candidate for his wife asap.


Harmony Ursine- Daughter of Claire and Jared.



I forgot her name but she was his classmate in high school and a babysitter.



The final one- I don't know why Sims that you invite over just don't know when to go home.



All of a sudden his mum turned into an old hag.



Finally he ages up to a Young Adult.



And marries Luz.



They finally get a house.



And he gets a makeover.


He thinks that his woes are over, but...



His wife turned out to be an Adult :O How is that even possible when he met her at school? Oh wells, at least the house wouldn't be over crowded.

I had the same aging problem in my Dynasty! I heard that if they were in the newpaper or babysitter job it was bugged and they age up faster.
Great Update! Luz is pretty :)

It is not such a major problem is wife being an adult. You don't have a full house so they can bring in the next generation without any problems.

1.3 Strudel's Quest for Friendship

With his career (sculptor), skill (sculpting) and LTW (perfect aquarium) done, Strudel realised that he was seriously lagging behind in the friends department. Being self employed meant that he didn't meet alot of people and while being busy he had dropped to mere acquaintances with his family. Hence, he started by reconnecting with those closest to him.


His wife Jamie. They hadn't really hugged since Pie was born (yes that's terrible)



His son Pie. He's really proud to have him. Somehow muscle definition gets inherited, or else I do not know how Pie- who has never been near any kind of exercise machine- is in such good shape.



Even the newspaper girl thinks so.



Meanwhile, having learnt a lesson from his dad, Pie decides to treat his wife better. Seriously Luz has a much better life than Jamie.



Jamie also takes time to teach her new daughter in law how to paint. (It seems alot faster this way instead of having Luz practice painting.)



And as usual Luz finds herself pregnant.


(Actually Luz is not very useful. Her role is mainly to bring in Gen3 and to serve as a painter between Jamie's death and Gen3 reaching painting level 7. Spoiler but when Jamie eventually passed away Gen3 was already almost there)



Anyway Strudel continues his quest for friendship as he invites over an old nemesis- the paparazzi- over for some dancing. 



He also attempts to win over the butler (whom I fired after 3 days) by sculpting her. Too bad I couldn't send it to her as a present.



He also attempts a sculpture of his new daughter in law, but I figured that I should leave her to be Pie's best friend. I regret it now, however, because she's a full YA lifespan older than Pie and i don't know if she will still be around when he turns elder.



Finally he turns into an elder.



Just as he thought he was finally done, one of his friends left him in the lurch.



Left with little choice, he turned to his newborn grandson- Cookie Sweets.



Here's little Cookie.



And here he is again after a visit to the mirror and dresser. It seems that he has Dad's hair and Mum's skin. I would have cried if he inherited Luz's green-brown hair.


Will Strudel's quest for immortality succeed? Or will he die before he can make enough friends? Stay tuned!


And Happy 2011 to all! (it's already 12pm on the 1st here).

Previously, on A Sweet Dynasty:

Just as the 3rd generation was born, Strudel realises that he had no friends, not even in the family. He tries to make amendments, but is it too late...?

First taste of the coveted delicacy.

However, soon Jamie passes away at work. She was 93. RIP, Jamie Sweets (nee Jolina).
As you can see there's Agnes in white in the foreground.



And this is how she looks like from the front. Freaky Vampire!Agnes. :O



In other vampire news, the vampire gnome continues its assault on Teddys worldwide.



Going closer... Teddy looks so innocent. ): I couldn't pick him up to rescue him.



Poof! Yet another gnome. I sold it away promptly.



Luz the extremely free mother turned to inventing because..



Cookie turned into a child!



Good, prim and proper Cookie.



Cookie eating a cookie! (:



Boom!



Boom boom!



Boom boom boom! I thought it was quite fun (:



Soon she turned into an elder.



No more pretty hair ):



New clothes.



Pie: It's ok, I still love you <3

Previously, on A Sweet Dynasty:
Strudel Sweets has finally taken the first step to building a great dynasty. Will the future generation continue down this path, or would unexpected events throw them off the plan...?



2.1 A New Chapter


Soon enough it was Cookie's birthday. He had an uneventful childhood.



Cookie calls it the rebellious artistic look. I call it the strange curly hair look.



And he must have got the muscle definition from Pie who got it from Strudel.



This is a $3000+ masterpiece end table sculpted by Strudel. Smart gnome decided to occupy it straight away.



Jamie decided to come back to play with the new addition to their home. It was kinda funny.


I decided to rebuild the house after looking at all the beautiful houses on the building thread.



Original ground floor. The rooms behind are the museum rooms.



Original second floor.



Overview of the new house. I decided to go with a modern black and white look but it is more colourful inside as each room is painted and decorated in the occupants' favourite colour.



The temporary museum consisting of one wall (:



I love using large windows when building.



The bird-eye view before I add all the colours. There will be another 5 bedrooms for the future generation on a future 2nd level and the museum on the 3rd floor. I used an elevator to save space. Running large households and even larger houses really jam up my game.

The new house is fabulous! I especially love the octagonal hallway for the bedrooms on the left.

What material is the masterpiece end table sculpted from? Stone or metal? It's gorgeous!

Large Houses/Families always make my game SUPER slow. I hope I can last throughout my whole dynasty without it getting too sluggish.

It was on auto roof, all I did was to make it flatter. Roofing is usually the worse part for me in building a house so I am glad it turned out well this time. I think it is because the house is wide so the roof doesn't look too tall. Now my camera lags a bit when I move across the house, and I only have 4 people ):


The new house is fabulous! I especially love the octagonal hallway for the bedrooms on the left.

Thanks! I was trying to be creative with angles although it took quite a while to build. (:

Yeah it is made of ice. I made poor Strudel sculpt one for each room and one for each spouse's urn in the museum. We have like 15 lying around in the house now lol. But that one is the other masterpiece so it goes beside his own bed (:

A short update.


2.2 The Old and the New


Luz took a trip down the time machine. The costume's interesting but the trip seems to have changed her forever...



As she starts having some bonding sessions with the men...


Cookie has 2 bride candidates:


Vicky Gesset- She's insane, klepto and over-emotional. But she's also pretty.



Caryn Rico- She's friendly, charismatic and ambitious. And has Agnes hair.



Soon it was time for Cookie to make the choice on his birthday.



As anyone sat down for cake and Pie's perfect dim sum...



Cookie decides to go for Caryn!



The usual happens.
Cookie: Her inner beauty shines through!



For the anti-climatic finish, Pie masters his last recipe. He learned all but steak and cobbler from the cooking channel.


Updates will be slower because I just got WA today and will start of the tournament events soon. Also school's starting next week so this week is filled with timetable arrangements and last minute gatherings. I will try my best to keep up with updating as I play (I am about 2 sim weeks ahead of this update now). Thanks for all the support! (:

Wow I realise that my poor thread is now the last one on the first page. Time for updates!


2.3 All Things Sweet and Beautiful

First lets start off with a tour of the museum. It is on the 3rd floor of the house. :)


The spouse wall. Each spouse has one sculpture and one portrait space. An end table specially crafted by Strudel lies in front and carries their urn when they pass away. (Hooray for haunted museum!)



Strudel's wall. Since he's the sculptor he has no sculpture. The sculpting gnome that I placed there went missing after one night so I have to find something to place there.



Pie's area. He has 4 sculptures (teen onwards). His favourite colour is blue hence the background.



Cookie's area. I can't take it from the front because it is blocked by the elevator. He will have all 6 sculptures.


Now let's study the resemblance (or lack of) between the Sweets men.



Strudel and Pie.



Pie and Cookie.

They all have the same hair colour (Both Strudel and Jamie were blond so Pie was too. Luz had green-brown hair)



After some time in the body sculptor, Caryn had a total makeover!



Everyday. She is joining the business career so I thought this suited her.



Formal. I am quite happy with this outfit!



Soon she gave birth to a noo-boo! Another boy!



She loves playing with her little boy even after a long day at work.



Muffin Sweets!



After the makeover. I think he looks just like daddy Cookie! Another blond boy in the family :)



FYI this is Cookie as a toddler.


Now you see him...



Now you don't! X)



Meanwhile Pie goes down the same path as Strudel- last minute meeting friends just before turning elder. Will he make it..?


Thanks for all the kind words. School started today so life's going to be a little hectic. I am glad I managed to finish the first challenge before school started although I got a lousy score. Please continue to support the Sweets! (:
