I have spent all afternoon tearing down the old house, taking out the basement and getting rid of as much stuff as possible.  The ghosts are across the street at the park, I deleted all of the gnomes, but some keep coming out of hiding, lol.  I basically rebuilt the house from the ground up.  So to start, I have the new pictures of the house and the museum.  I really have had much time to play, but so far I have not had any save issues.  I place all cars in each of the sims personal inventory, so the lot looks kinda bare, but if that is what I have to do to play, then that is what I will do.  I couldn't part with some of the portraits and photographs, so I place them around the house.  I am still working on the house, so it is still kind of rough.

I'm so glad the Colours are back!

Love the museum setup and the vinyl/metal (?) couches in the living area!

Best of luck, Salty.

What a great house and museum, Salty!  I hope your game/computer cooperates with you and you don't have any more issues.  Now to go back and start reading your dynasty from the beginning!

Thanks, I played all morning and no issues, but I better not say that too loud, lol.  It was just a matter of totally redoing and demolishing the old house and basement with 6 bedrooms, sheesh.  I am back to enjoying playing this one for now, so here is to the finish line. :)

I was going to give up and really had intended on doing so. I actually found out that I had so much stuff and my house was so big that my file was overworked.  Unfortunately, I deleted the story because I was frustrated and didn't want to finish it.  After I spoke to a couple of computer geeks at Best Buy and they explained a few things to me, I went ahead and demolished the original house and rebuilt to the front of the lot and got rid of that humungous basement.  So far, it has been successful, but now I wished I had not got rid of the story.  I feel really bad about that, see what frustration will do to ya.  I will continue on with the dynasty, but only doing updates when it is neccesary.  Although, I can say, that Sunshine just turned into a teenager and she is quite lovely.  I will post screenies in a couple of days.  I work 30 hours from Sat. to Mon., so I do not have time for anything else but sleep the next couple of days.  Too bad we can't recover the important stuff we should not really delete.  Thanks for reading. :)

I finally turned into a teenager and school is so much better than it was.  There are some strange people though with the weirdest looking eyes.  Mom said to stay away from those people, but I have to say, I am intrigued by them, I even made friends with one, but as soon as left the building, she almost vanished, wonder what happened, I took a shower this morning.




That is just a couple of my outfits I got for my birthday, my mom is so awesome.  We have so much fun together.  They even took me to this place called Waylon's Haunt, something about they closed it off just so I could have my birthday party without these people taking pictures all of the time.

My mom is dancing on the bar, they said that she had done that before, so the counter sort of has her imprint on it, I think she is funny.


Oh, I didn't even tell you the best part yet, I got a new car.  I am so dumb when it comes to that stuff, I can't even tell you the name, but here I am driving it.

I have a new camera too, so here are just some ramdom shots of the family.




I thought this was funny.  I caught Grandma Agnes and Grandma Noelle going out for a spin, how cool is that.

I watch the sims dance, but I really hadn't looked at their faces too much, but I got to watching Star's face as she was dancing and they look like they are so enjoying dancing.  So, I thought I would post this video of her dancing at Sunshine's birthday party.  If you notice her mom sitting at the bar and she is really watching her daughter, I just thought it was cool.

YAY update! Love the birthday party.
I'm so glad you were able to fix the Colour's file, Salty! So much time and effort, and frustration, I'm glad it was all worth it.

Happy to see them back Salty!  Thyme's are going to be next for a huge house remodel.  I felt your pain!  Luckily I didn't delete them, just removed their file to a separate folder on my desktop.  Having deleted one dynasty I had learned my lesson.  I can see where this is going to continue to be a great story for you though!  Can't wait.  Don't get too tired, hon.  Sims are fun but if you get over tired it will hurt you in the long run.
What?  Grannies can't play games?
I speak perfect Nooblik, (and some Simlish)!

The process of aging and dynasties is a slow process, once it gets so far.  There are eight in the household, one of which is a mortal.  Sunshine just turned into a teen and has a long way to go before she is of childbearing age.  Unfortunately, now, it is a waiting game, because we have to lose the last mortal, to finish the dynasty.  Cecil has become a major force in the family unit and we really do not look forward to the day that the grim comes to take him away.  I sometimes sit across the street in the family cemetary to think about all of those years ago when I met Agnes.  She was the backbone and the rock for this family.  Each mortal played some role the in our lives at one point or another.  There has been a few setbacks along the way, but we have overcome.  Of all immortals, all requirements are met, all portraits and sculptures are finished, so, we just sit and wait.  We all often wonder what we will do when the dynasty finally comes to an end and we look at each other wanting the answers.  The new house is smaller and a little more cramped, but we somehow manage to make it work.  We are all celebraties in our own right and have been lavished with wonderful gifts. The family has a solid foundation and I have heard of so many other families, that seem to have tragity and heartbreak, that it makes me wonder what really lies ahead for each and every one of us.  I do know, for myself, I want to travel.  We have more money than any one of us could spend in a lifetime and lifetimes to come.  I wondered, what went through my head, so long ago, about whether or not I wanted to start this undertaking, of losing loved ones and the sadness that comes with it and knowing that I could prevent it.  I would do it again in a heartbeat, because it is the driving force that keeps me, the founder, going on, living our day to day lives.  Each and every one of us, has a goal.  I am not sure how it will play out at the end, but you would be surprised at the choices that they have made.  I know I long to hold someone in my arms again and feel the warmth of someone sleeping next to me and the joy of sharing your life with a spouse.  I still miss Agnes terribly and miss her arms and lips.  Yes, we have shared moments after she has left, but it is not quite the same as a living, breathing person next to you to share the joy and heartbreak that comes into our lives.  Yes, we have a long road ahead of us.  Can we survive what lies ahead or will it come crashing down like so many other families.  Our town is filling up with vampires at an alarming rate and so far we all have been spared the fate that others have succombed to.  Yes, I am blessed beyond belief as I look at my wonderful family and wonder what our futures will hold....

I'm so happy purple eyes are back :D Good for you for finding a way to save them, both you and Joria did it, which made me even more sad for my Stucksons, knowing that there was hope for them. I'm on to new one, but it is so good to see some ol' friends still hanging around. Following them all the way to HOF.
And Museum and house are looking wonderfull!

Franklin:

It has been awhile since I have reported in.  Not alot has happened, but we have had a few birthdays.  I suppose you could say we are on the countdown now to total immortality and there has been a few obstacles that, I hope we have overcome.  Cecil and Star are both almost at the top of the acting career and I do believe Cecil looks rather dashing in his work attire.


It is almost both, Star's and Cecil's birthday and Star has already accomplished all she needs to accomplish towards the dynasty.  All that needs to be done is her portrait and sculpture, which is not a problem. Sunshine is having the next birthday to young adulthood right after her mom and dad.  She did invite a friend over and said she really liked him and they were dating.


It is so hard now to watch Sunshine develop into a young vibrant woman and even harder knowing she will not be able to marry the man she falls in love with. 

It was finally Star's birthday into elderhood, so to speak and she took it very well.


She has turned out to be a very distinguished looking elder and I think she looks great in the hairdo.
Next was Cecil.  I think he took it worse than Star did.



I kind of overheard a talk they were having, but the house is so open, it is kind of hard not to pay attention.


Star:  I am glad we have this short time to talk, seems like it is so few and far between.  I just wanted to say, I love you with all of my heart and I do not want to lose you. I don't know what we all are going to do, but if I thought there was a way for us to be together, I would do it.
Cecil: I knew what I was getting into when I married into this family.  I would not change one thing, even if I wanted to.  We still have some time left, why don't we take a trip and spend some quality time together.  How about France?
Star:  What about our jobs?  We just can't up and leave right now, or could we?  We will sleep on it, ok.  I want to spend every spare moment with you Cecil Colour.


Well, I wish I had not listened, that was a private moment and I need to get to bed and get some rest.  It is Sunshine's birthday tomorrow and I am not sure if she is having some second thoughts about this whole dynasty business.  Oops, family meeting time, guess I won't be sleeping anytime soon.

Wait, I thought I was the only one that could call a family meeting, oh well, not tonight I guess.
Star:  I wanted this opportunity to really ask everyone if they had thought about what we were going to do when this dynasty was final.  Myself, I don't really want to live forever, if I can't live with the person I love the most in life.  What is the point, day in and day out, the same thing.  Yes, it is great to be immortal, but at what cost.  We have all lost someone near and dear to us, so now what?
We all sort of stared at Star, because, actually I had never thought of what any of us would do when we had finished this endeavor.
Heather:  I guess I have always wanted to travel and see the sites.  None of us have really ever been anywhere.  Why don't we all take a trip together when it is time, at least it something to think about.  I think, right now, we all need some sleep and continue this meeting when we are fully rested.

The next evening, it was Sunshine's birthday and she had invited her friend, Luke.




She is beautiful young lady and said she wanted to Leader of the Free World and I believe she could do it too.

After things had settled down, Sunshine and Luke had some alone time.  I am not sure if I like the looks of it, but she is grown and has to make her own mind up.

That pic was taken before her makeover, she does not like long hair.


Later that evening, when Sunshine's friend had left, she had a talk with her mother.  She told her that she felt like a guinea pig in an experiment and did anyone else care about how she felt.  Sunshine was in love and she knew about not being able to get married and be with the one she loved and she was not liking it right now.
Her mom told her, she needed to realize that all of us have been through the same thing and that Sunshine and her heir was the final chapter.  Well, Sunshine said she didn't want to be the final chapter and she wanted to get married to Luke and with that she ran to her room.  Well, this is a fine pickle we are in.  Maybe her great great grandmother can talk to her, but not tonight. We will just have to see what happens.  We can't force Sunshine into anything, but we can be firm and stand our ground, we must for the sake of the Colour Dynasty.
