I love the wedding. It's adorable. Congrats on it. ;D Bebe's veil is beautiful, and her dress too.

Is that Gunther Goth as an elderly vampire in the background? I had to ask.

Chapter 9:  Endings and Beginnings

Mom passed away the day after my wedding.  I was sad that she didn't get to hold her grandchild, but she lived a long time and we were close near the end.  Dad was heartbroken over losing the only woman he'd ever loved.  Now that I have Bebe, I can understand how he must feel.

Once things settled down, Bebe and I decided we wanted to start a family.  But there were problems...  not with Bebe, but with me.  My SimBot insides weren't working properly.  I knew it was possible for a SimBot to be a father because Dad did it.  I asked him for advice, but he said he didn't do anything special.  It just happened.  My Watcher wants me to be happy and she does everything she can for me and Bebe.  As much as she hated to leave us, she went away for awhile and left us to ourselves.

It was at Christopher Steel's birthday party that Bebe first had morning sickness.  My Watcher suspected that Bebe was with child and came back to help us.



Yes, my lovely Bebe was pregnant!  It was a difficult pregnancy and I wouldn't let her do anything but rest and watch television.  She was just as beautiful pregnant as she was on the day we married.



Labor started in the middle of the night and I'm embarrassed to admit that I slept through the whole thing, which is even more strange considering I'm a Light Sleeper.



I woke up just as my daughter was born. 



Then my beloved presented me with a second daughter.



Both Strawberry and Flamingo seem to be part SimBot like me.  Both are little Geniuses.  By the time we gave them their first feedings and put them to bed, Strawberry was at level 4 in Inventing and level level 7 in Handiness!  Flamingo was at level 5 in both skills!  I can hardly believe that they are learning so fast.  They are just tiny infants.



Whatever they are, I love them with all my heart.  My precious little angels.  And Bebe...  what can I say about her?  She is my true partner in life; the giver of miracles.

Woo! Simbot Nooboos!

*Confetti* all around!  So am I correct in assuming a Simbot only procreates as the "non-active" household?

Cool I never would have thought of trying to let them do their own thing. And what's up with the traits? Are you going with pink colours for the babies?

SimBots are created with 4 points in Inventing and 8 points in Handiness. Probably the nooboos got those skills (or half of them) because both are half-SimBots.

I had an inventor sim make like 13 simbots in her lifetime. and they all came with some handiness and inventing skills but not a set amount
I remember some had/more or less than others from my experience its random 
for example
I remember one with 2 handiness and 8 inventing, another with 5 inventing 5 handiness

so makes sense that a simbot would be born with it just like a sim invents them with it...

That makes so much sence. I was about to ask for this but I don't have to anymore.

Pam, I've expected them to be more bio than techno, those little nooboos, but they seems to be 50 50 again, just like father? I was thinking they would have a little bit more sim in them (ability to dress and go in hottubs or so) and a little less simbots (ability to eat outside of the garbade dump). But maybe it's to soon to ask these questions.

I guess they got their skills from being born SimBots.  I was quite surprised by it.  Babies never have skills.  Not until they become children, and even then it's not handiness and inventing.

They drink their bottles like a normal infant.  I remember that Uriah didn't start eating scrap until he was a young adult.  Their needs meters are silver like a SimBot.  They don't have hygiene issues because that meter is locked, as in all other SimBots.  The toddler stage will probably be hysterical if they crawl and walk like a SimBot.  I already know that they speak like one.

I'm leaving Uriah and Bebe alone for awhile to see if they get pregnant again.  I'd like to carry on a few generations to see if the SimBot trait ever fades out.  Or if children can be born who are not SimBot.

Yes, if I ever get children I will learn them at young age to play in the kitchen with gass, to provide them with early handiness skills. :P
No, serious, I'm afraid this really is kind of a bug and the game trying to handle this all. It surprises me you haven't had any problems playing this savefile unless you haven't mentioned it. Anyway, I really hope you have a good backup of the rest of your sims stuff, for in case.

This file runs as smooth as can be.  But, yes, I do have backup just in case.

I thought I had already posted this, but I guess not.  Here is a video of Strawberry and Flamingo making cooing noises.  If you listen carefully, you can hear that their voices have that SimBot metallic sound.

Mabye not, maybe so. The probabilities of such an event are slim, but I wouldn't venture to say that they were impossible :D

Congratulations on the twins, I totally expected Bebe and Uriah to adopt! I guess the hidden Simbot trait gets passed onto all offspring, like the vampire one (supposedly 50/50, pfft). I hope your save file turns out OK, I know my mummy hybrids got pretty glitchy in the end.  :-\

Congratulations on the twins!    From my experience all Simbots come with different handiness/inventing skills so I can't wait to see the toddler movement stage for your little ones.   

The voices are a little creepy but their dad has a normal voice so maybe it will change for them?  Guess we'll see.   

Great story!
