Kahale Homes through the Ages

Initially, I had posted here screenshots of the Kahale home during the current period, the More Tech Era.
I've enjoyed browsing photos on the Web of Polynesian, especially Hawaii'an, homes over the years, which has made the building process more fun.
So I've created a separate post with all the Kahale homes by era.

The post is listed under "Extras" in the first post's Index: Kahale Homes through the Ages

Paradise Tossed (SimTech): Pele's Passion (9 Sep)
« Reply #26 on: September 09, 2020, 02:43:05 PM »
4.2.  Pele's Passion (More Tech Era)


Week 7, Friday (3rd Week of Summer)
Pele: Papa says I can narrate this time, since he needs to hunker down on work.
Recently, sister Latifah moved out to nearby Camp Caldera.
Then, Mila married Lewis Bheeda who moved in
As soon as Mila learns she's eating for two, she drinks a vampire cure.


Lewis gets his makeover at last, choosing the same hairstyle as his father Arjun.
He and Mila both look forward to becoming parents.
Though he's a Freelance Writer, we can't have a typewriter at home.
And we can't constantly stay at the library, so he's basically unemployed.


Brother-in-law Lewis may be jobless, but he does keep busy.
You're NOT gonna believe what he knitted for our house.
It's a cozy new mailbox in matching colors.


Since Mila is also jobless, they've started learning Wellness.
Papa wants them to learn how to give aromatherapy massages.

But it's only a temporary arrangement.
I'd like to get married and have a child or two of my own, too!


In case you've been wondering, only my parents and I are still vampires.
We're "good vampires," not bothering to seek out sims to drink their plasma.
We make do with plasma packs and we have plenty.


My younger siblings Avana and Santos have been fishing up a storm.
We never have to look for or breed frogs for plasma packs!


For the Night on the Town holiday, we go out to celebrate Santos' birthday.
We've never dined out before except for…Does camping count?

Now, Santos is not only Good but also a Bro.


We need to go out more often!
I "Detect Personality" and "Cause Hallucinations" on the many diners here.

Papa is already a Master Vampire with full sunlight resistance.
But, as Prime Vampires, Mama and I have one more rank to go.
Full sunlight resistance would make daytime so much easier!


Saturday
Today's my first day of work in the Manual Labor job.
This is also my last weekend before my young adult birthday.

I ask Mila for a pre-work aromatherapy massage.


The youngest Kahale, Santos, learns how to garden.
It's something every junior member of the household learns to do.


In the evening, I summon elementals for the first time.
Three young adults arrive: Fetia (female) along with Rua and Aleki (both male).

Though I befriend the Unflirty, Self-Absorbed Fetia, I really prefer Aleki.
But could Aleki and I have kids?  Papa, it's time for that woohoo talk!



Week 8, Sunday
Neither Mama nor Lewis can resume knitting their baby onesie projects.
After a frustrated morning, our Watcher finally resorts to research (Google).

Apparently, a sim can resume a knitting project while seated on a double bed or toilet.
Yeah, sure. Like we would have figured that out ourselves! *rolls eyes


Avana says that there's almost no remaining cleanup to do in Mua Pel'am lately.
She does manage to confront a tourist for littering!


This afternoon, I earn the final promotion for the Manual Labor job.
I'm so close to becoming a Renaissance Sim now!


Monday
In the early morning, we celebrate my birthday at a bar in Lani St. Taz.
After I blow out my candles, I join the Gardener career.
Bam!  I complete our fourth, unique aspiration.


Papa gives me the birds and bees talk with a focus on island elementals.
So, yes, I could marry Aleki and we could have children together!

Papa's asked Mila and Lewis to move out this afternoon.
Lewis is all right, but Mila is constantly offering Caleb massages!


Aleki Vainu'upo hangs around for hours after the other two elementals leave.
I can't wait to ask him to move in so I can propose!

Did I tell you that we share two traits?
I'm a child of the islands and an outdoor-loving genius.
Aleki is romantic and an outdoor-loving genius.


Oh no! Later that evening, Aleki phones to invite me out on a date!
I'd love to go but Mila and Lewis haven't moved out yet.

Papa got greedy about his Mentor Fitness task.
He asks them to move out after he mentors Lewis. Sheesh!


As soon as they've moved, I summon the elementals again.
I immediately cancel the event to ask Aleki to move in.
After a brief engagement, we elope right away.
He's one handsome sim who aspires to become an Angling Ace. He's perfection!


When he asks me to Try for Baby, I figure we'll dash over to my double bed.
Nope! I follow him as he runs past the house to the waterfall.
Just…wow!

Aleki later tells me he's eating for two, but I hope he's eating for three!


Tuesday
After I leave for work, Papa and Aleki go the beach where they run into Latifah.
Aleki's shocked and confronts my sister for her anti-environmental wrongdoings.

Latifah responds to Aleki quite rudely, I hear, but doesn't talk back to Papa.


After Latifah stomps off in a huff, Aleki and Papa return to their original plan.
Aleki learns to fish with Papa as his mentor.

Have you noticed Papa's hair is no longer grey?
He finally heeded my advice and dyed it. Looks great, right?


Wednesday
Today is a most glorious day!
First, Papa earns his last Bodybuilder promotion then switches careers.
He's joined the Criminal career with an eye on the Boss branch.

While doing his daily Mischief task, he gives a smackdown to a  nearby litterbug.


Mama also completes her Master of the Real career this afternoon.
Next, she joins the Culinary career to become a Chef.


And me? I'm a blissed out newlywed, expecting father, and Level 6 Botanist .
And by evening, Mama and I gain full sunlight resistance as Master Vampires.
No more staying indoors or fearfully carrying umbrellas in the daytime!

Watcher's Notes

*Massage tables: I figure massage tables are fine in the More Tech Era.
  The ancient Greeks and Romans used tables of marble or wood to give massages.

*Lewis Bheeda: In total, Lewis only lived with the Kahales for a week.
  They probably only gave a total of 4 pre-work massages (Caleb doesn't count).
  Since Pele's the one helping with requirements, he deserves a family more.
  I'm sure Mila and Lewis will lead very happy lives elsewhere in Sulani.

*Knitting: Mina already maxed Knitting without waiting for the High Tech Era.
  She knitted a baby onesie and gifted it to Pele since she couldn't Add to Wardrobe.
  She could Add to Wardrobe, however, the toddler onesie she knitted next.
  How unfortunate that sims can't resume their knitting projects in a rocking chair or other chair.

*Aleki Vainu'upo: I've never "encountered" an elemental so willing to hang around.
  I've never had an elemental invite a sim out on a date, either. :)
  It just goes to show, I guess, what a compatible match he and Pele make.
  On second thought, good thing Pele declined the date. Nightclubs aren't allowed until the High Tech Era. (Outside Sulani, I avoid banned venues rather than delete them all.)

*Lot traits: In retrospect, Good Schools is not essential since we're on Normal lifespan.

Kahale SimTech Dynasty: Aleki's Affection
« Reply #27 on: September 11, 2020, 06:48:11 PM »
4.3.  Aleki's Affection (More Tech Era)


.Week 8, Thursday (4th week of Summer)

Hey, I'm Aleki. I'm a former island elemental and now the spouse of Pele Kahale.
Since I'm the stay-at-home household member, Pele's persuaded me to narrate an update.

Can I say I love having a corporeal body and being part of a family?
And, by the way, my in-laws want me to call them Papa and Mama, like their children do.


I've grown huge in my third trimester!
My back is killing me and I miss seeing my feet.


Pele gives me two consecutive fertility massages.
He really wants twins, but I'm not fussed.
If we have one child, we can just have another one.


I give birth to a girl and we name her Okika, which means orchid.
How cute she looks the pink-and-white onesie knitted by her gramdma!


Friday
While Pele works and his siblings attend school, Mama Mina knits.
Peeking out the window, I see that Papa  has invited someone over to play chess.
Why is the chess table in an enclosed area?

It almost looks as if that lady is going up in flames. Could she be a vampire!?


See, Papa needed to witness a death for his Public Enemy aspiration.
Call me heartless, but I'm relieved Papa chose to lure a vampire to a fiery death.
What if he'd told my Pele to woohoo an elder to death?
I'm proud of Papa for not involving any of his children to complete that goal.


Saturday
Mama looks so lovely and refreshed as she heads out to work as a chef.
Or so we thought.
Two hours later, her restaurant calls to ask why she hasn't shown up yet.
We find her out back, chatting with Patchy. What the heck?


The power of Heavy Metal and a Big Happy Family!
Avana maxed out her knitting skill in a single day!
I'm a bit envious at how quickly Pele and his siblings learn skills.


What a pleasant way to spend the afternoon.
I play chess while listening to alternative music and Pele mentors me.

Island elementals randomly visit the homes of whoever summons them.
It's a delightful change to stay in one place as part of a loving family.


All the Kahales have been welcoming and supportive.
Hearing that Pele and I are hoping for a boy, Mama gifts me a green baby onesie.

I've never known my parents so I love that Pele's parents treat me like a son.



Week 8, Sunday (1st week of  Fall)
Today, both Papa and Mama earn their Level 6 promotions.
Papa joins the Boss branch, while Mama becomes a Chef.
Unlike Pele, they only work half the week now so promotions might get harder.

And me, my only mission is to raise both our kids into top-notch toddlers.


Papa Tuki and Pele are beyond thrilled when Okika ages up into a redheaded toddler.
She is also a born vampire and I wonder how early she can be cured. As a teen, I suspect.


Here's Okika again in her everyday and sleepwear outfits.
I believe Mama Mina knitted that pink elephant onesie.
Between Mama and Avana, they've knitted all the baby and toddler onesies.


Monday
This morning, I give birth to a little boy. We name him Poke, which rhymes with crochet.
Well, yes, it also rhymes with Pokemon, but the meaning's different.

The Japanese word Pokemon is short for Poketto Monsta (Pocket Monsters).
In Sulani, Poke Bowl is a traditional dish made of diced raw fish.


Tuesday
As soon as Pele comes home from work, we head for Selvadorada.
It's my first visit and I absolutely adore the scenery, even if we stay at our rental the whole time.

Pele's been brainstorming how to earn fame without painting, since he's a genius.
Lecturing everyone on archaeology all the time's a bit obnoxious.
So, Santos will help Pele authenticate artifacts for Pele to donate to museums. That will work!


Wednesday
Poke ages up this morning.
As you can see, I'm batting two for two with redheads!
Is it just my imagination or does Poke look like me a little?


Thursday
Surely, Pele will be able to complete his Botanist career by tomorrow evening.
It was going so well then, at Level 9, he suddenly has to wear pink stiletto pumps.
Why!?


This past week, we've been taking turns getting sick.
So far, orange juice from the fridge never fails to make us feel better.

Santos feels dizzy and his skin breaks out in red spirals.
A glass of OJ and an hour later, Santos is the picture of health.


Nobody's surprised when Pele comes home today with his final promotion.
Before he left for work, though, we didn't want to say anything to jinx him.


I have no memory of ever having been raised in a family.
My only memories consist of being summoned along with other elementals.

For this reason, I've been secretly worried about bringing up Okika and Poke.
But they'll be fine. They'll definitely become top-notch toddlers.


Because this is a household where everyone generously helps each other.
Nobody ever says, "That's not my responsibility."

Within this warm, tight-knit family, I'm learning how to raise Okika and Poke.


Ours is a busy life but one filled with peace and laughter.
Every day, I thank the fates that Pele chose me!

Incidentally, we're one aspiration and six career promotions away from the High Tech Era!!!

Watcher's Notes

Illness: Up to More Tech, the Kahales cannot buy medicine because they lack computers.
They can buy a tea infuser in More Tech, though, to drink green tea..
So far, they haven't had to buy one, since drinking orange juice has worked just fine.
Luckily, none of the Kahales fell ill during the No Tech and Low Tech Eras.

Screenshot lighting: My apologies if images seem too dark.
Though electricity is available in this era, this family prefers candlelight.
They are using electricity-powered fridge, oven, and gramophones.

Power-efficient plumbing/appliances: I wish they could do upgrades.
But they can't buy upgrade parts and only get them from fishing or salvaging for parts.
They could visit Desert Bloom Park with the toddlers to check dig sites.
But first, they need to focus on career promotions.

Thank you, Deme. Since this dynasty is based in Sulani, marrying an island elemental seemed to fit into the story.
It was silly fun trying imagine an island elemental's impressions of a dynasty household. I hope you'll try it, too. :)

Kahale SimTech Dynasty: We Can Work It Out (14 Sep)
« Reply #30 on: September 15, 2020, 04:54:58 PM »
4.4.  We Can Work It Out (More Tech Era)


.Week 9, Friday (1st week of Autumn)

Tuki: Our household now consists of three generations!


Of course, Makoa gave me four grandkids during the Mid-Tech Era.
But they were all born outside of our home.

Time passes so quickly. Now Makoa is an adult and his children are already teenagers.


My wife Mina really needs to be more diligent about arriving to work on time.
Tonight, she finally catches up to me and brings home her Level 7 promotion.
Three promotions over 10 days is not commendable.

Also, how can she "maintain high relationship with her co-workers," when they've all died?


Saturday
Since I won't live through all of the High Tech Era, I want to complete our 5th aspiration.
I can't start another aspiration this era, so I probably should have let Mina finish Master Chef.

But I can't help but want to make a significant contribution to our dynasty's success.
Max Villareal is my third declared enemy. (Yes, I checked first; he's not my co-worker.)


After completing the Botanist career two days ago, Pele joined the Criminal career.
He won't get far but it's something to do while he waits on Mina and me.


After Santos celebrates his young adult birthday, both Avana and he start learning Parenting.
When Okika and Poke get older, they'll often ask for advice.
Of course, they'll ask the adults with the lowest Parenting skill and thus get the worst advice.

They're to read and interact with Okika and Pele until they're at least Parenting 8.



Week 10, Sunday (2nd week of Autumn)
To everyone's surprise, Pele returns home at 2 am with his Level 6 promotion.
He chooses the Oracle branch of the Criminal career.
Until we enter the High Tech Era, he'll be stuck at that career level.
In the More Tech Era, he can't complete his skill requirements or daily task.


An hour later, I bring home my Level 8 promotion in the Boss career.
That completes our fifth aspiration: Public Enemy.

You're probably a little curious why I'm earning promotions faster than Mina is.
I'm very conscientious about work, whereas Mina's often late and struggles to earn promotions.


So far, my hair color and facial features have influenced the majority of the Kahale offspring.
Though Poke already shares my hair and skin tone, we're hoping he resembles Aleki.


Monday
Okika's birthday celebration notice arrives this morning.
My beautiful grand-daughter is now a beautiful child!


Don't feel bad for me because I'm a senior citizen!
I still got it goin' on. Just ask my wife.


Wednesday
My son Pele and grandson Poke, enjoying lunch together.


Thursday
I have been promoted to The Brains (Level 9).
Sadly, I now work only two nights a week.

Regardless, it's time we begin planning for the next era.


Later this morning, Poke leaves his toddlerhood behind.


In the afternoon, I turn Aleki at his request.
When the next era begins, he wants to be roughly the same age as his husband..


Friday
Mina and I only need one promotion each now.
After Mina gets back from work, we all head for Desert Bloom Park so the kids can fish.

It's a shame they can't earn their Outdoor Adventurer badge by fishing in Sulani.
On the other hand, we all enjoy our first trip to Oasis Springs.


Saturday
We're surprised to discover that Okika can learn to knit.
Not only that, but she builds both the Motor and Knitting skills at the same time.
Is it because she's already maxed Creative?

And Avana maxes Parenting while mentoring Okika in Knitting. Huh, another mentorable skill!


Santos asks me today if he should move out to make room for another nooboo.
I wish he'd mentioned earlier that he was willing to move out.

The last thing we need now is a nooboo going into the High Tech Era.
Who wants to raise a 12-day nooboo who ages up into a 28-day toddler? Not us!


Tonight, Mina completes the Chef career!
Ironically, on her very last day of work, she finally gains a living co-worker.



Week 11, Sunday (3rd week of Autumn)
By 11 pm, I've positive proof of completing my Boss career this shift.
I phone Pele and tell him to mix the Ultimate Vampire Cure for everyone.

Pele phones back to inform me that he, Mine, and Aleki drank their cures first.
And he's saving an extra one for me.


Monday
Tuki: At 1 am, I bring home my final promotion to complete our fifth career.
I down the vampire cure Pele hands me.
The Kahales are once again a household of human sims.

And we're ready to move ahead to the High Tech Era!

Watcher's Notes

*Okika and Poke: As adorable as they are, I messed up timing their births.
  I've never played on Long lifespan and had no idea the child/teen lifespans are 52 days each.
  I would have preferred Okika and Pele as teens in the High Tech Era. Oh well.

*Turning an elemental: I could find no Friendly socials for Tuki to turn Aleki.
 Tuki couldn't "Offer to Turn" while Aleki couldn't "Ask to Turn."
 Is this because Aleki's an island elemental?
 Tuki ended up using the Vampire social "Turn into Vampire," which worked fine.

*Tuki the Elder: When Tuki transformed into a vampire, his age bar was bubbling.
  Curing his vampirism, though, reset his age to Day 1 of the Elder stage.
  Long Lifespan's Elder stage is 40 days plus Tuki has a 25% bonus from the Long-Lived trait.
  It's highly possible that he will be around until the end of this challenge. :)
  I certainly hadn't started this challenge thinking Tuki would live so long, but I'm delighted.

Kahale SimTech Dynasty: High on High Tech (20 Sep)
« Reply #31 on: September 20, 2020, 11:43:36 PM »
5.1. We're High on High Tech

Week 11, Monday (3rd week of Autumn)

Mina: We have officially entered the High Tech Era!
It's a little past 1 am, but we all walk down to nearby Turtle Beach for a family portrait.

I'd been looking forward to watching my grandchildren grow.
Now that we're on Long Lifespan, though, they won't be teens for 5-6 more weeks!
Here we are in order of birth.
Tuki: 108-day-old Elder
Mina  94 days to Adult
Pele: 94 days to Adult
Aleki: 94 days to Adult
Avana: 93 days to Adult
Santos: 84 days to Adult
Okika: 29 days to Teen
Poke: 40 days to Teen


Returning home, Tuki switches his aspiration to Mansion Baron which instantly completes.
Next, we pack up our belongings and bulldoze our house in preparation for a new house.


Our new home is more or less built, but we still haven't decided how to use some of the rooms.
Since Tuki and Pele both love the outdoors, they share an open-air office in the back.

Here, Pele gains Programming skill for work, while Tuki tries out the new Fabricator.


It's fully light now, so here's a shot of the house from the front.
Pele and Aleki can't decide the location of their bedroom.
Which is better: the privacy of an upstairs bedroom or the convenience of a downstairs one?


By the time Pele gets back from work at 10 am, we've maxed all five skills.
Pele maxes two (Writing and Programming) and so do I (Piano and Mixology).
Tuki maxes Fabrication without a single mishap on the Fabricator.


To my surprise, I notice banners and balloons at the entrance to Turtle Beach.
How did we miss noticing that Mua Pel'am's environment has been completely restored?

We also never saw the notification about today's turtle hatching event!


Initially, Tuki planned to join the Conservationist career to continue Mua Pel'am's cleanup.
Since Mua Pel'am has been fully restored, he decides to join the Social Meida career instead.

Santos, stop beachcombing for seashells and appreciate…


The adorable baby turtles!


Back home, I throw a dinner party to complete my Master Chef aspiration.
Only one more Gourmet Dish to go!


After I complete our third aspiration, Leader of the Pack, we leave Sulani for the evening.
It's Bears' Night at the Shrieking Llama Bar tonight.
Pele is close to becoming a Musical Genius, a project he started during the More Tech Era.

Noticing that his dreads matched brother Makoa's this morning at the beach, Pele's switched to this hairstyle.


But, of course, it's easier for Pele to mentor music at home.
We're actually out and about so Tuki can clog 3 drains to become Chief of Mischief.
Tuki should have been done by now but he seems to have drawn a detractor.
Pele completes Musical Genius before Tuki finishes clogging his third and last drain.


Tuesday
The children have joined the Drama Club for something to do.
Poke gets promoted today while Okika does not. Does she practice less than Poke did?

In other news, Tuki and I earn promotions and branch to our respective careers.
Tuki's in Public Relations and I'm a Floral Designer.


Thursday
Pele works from 1 am to 10 am these days.
I don't mind that his schedule is opposite the rest of the houseold's.

But what's the point of the Oracle career if he works in his everyday outfit?
He's never once worn that outfit and it doesn't appear in our wardrobe, either.


Besides gardening and aromatherapy massage, there's not much for Avana and Santos to do.
So they've been assigned aspirations our Watcher hasn't completed yet.

Avana successfully shows off her sweater to brother-in-law Lewis for Lady of the Knits.
Meanwhile, Santos fabricates five Eco Upgrade Parts for Master Maker.


Friday
Pele, currently at Level 9, hacks his work performance tonight for a positive boost.
We're pretty sure he'll complete the Oracle career when we works next in two days.


Avana needs to teach another sim to knit for her Lady of the Knits aspiration.
Her niece Okika already maxed Knitting and her brother Santos declines.
But it looks like Avana's found a willing pupil after all.


Saturday
The whole family's been working so hard lately that we decide to take a break.
We travel to Willow Creek to dine on experimental food at Chez Llama.

We enjoy the cuisine but the restaurant's atmosphere doesn't suit us at all.
Maybe we could persuade our local restaurant to expand their dinner menu?



Week 12, Sunday
Santos has made lots of progress with his Master Maker aspiration.
Unfortunately, his freelance gigs never complete despite all the tasks being done.

We've already completed our 5 aspirations, but we're curious about the Master Maker's reward trait.
Maybe he can craft his 20 candles then switch to a different Freelance career.


At 10 am, Pele brings home his final promotion for the Oracle career.
On his very last day of work, he finally wears his career outfit!

As soon as he gets home, he immediately phones to join the Tech Guru career at Level 4.
Hmmph, he hasn't started his new career any higher than usual (see Note).

Watcher's Notes
*Day 1, High Tech Era: Completing five careers gave the Kahale household a lot of time to prepare for the High Tech Era.
  When the new era began, the household had a head start on 4 of the skills and 3 of the aspirations.
  Also, the High Tech Era began a little past 1 a.m., so its first day last 23 hours.

*Fame Perks: I've not played around much with Get Famous but wanted to test the Fame perks.
According the Level 4 Career Hopper perk: "When joining a new career, he'll be hired at a higher starting position."
But Pele has the Connections trait, so joining Tech Guru at Level is no "higher position." Bah!
   
*The house: Here's a photo of the Kauai villa that served as the model for the Kahale home.
 

 And here's the Kahales' High Tech home, much larger than necessary but still functional.
 Actually, I'm finding that the larger the house, the more the sims drop their queues because I struggle to keep an eye on them all.
 

Thanks for reading!
