It was part of the birth announcement, naming, and choosing traits.  I only got to chose one trait for each baby and in the spot where it tells me what the first trait is, there was also the SimBot/Immune to Fire business.

I used to know this, but when I read your post nothing came back in my head. Can you maybe take a picture to show how the screen looks where to find hidden traits? Than I may remember it myself.

It might be just a one time thing at birth, Leto.  It's same screen you use when you're choosing the baby's traits.  I can't click on anything after that point to see the hidden traits.  If I can get a screen shot, I'll post it here.

Pam - To make Simbot Hybrids does the Simbot have to be Male? I think it might be?

I don't know for sure as this is the first time I've had it happen.  I'm guessing that your theory is that a female SimBot wouldn't be able to have a physical pregnancy.  That makes some sense in a normal world, but we're talking about a world where Story Progression can make almost anything happen.  So, I think it would be possible with a female.  Definitely worth checking out.

Just finished reading through your whole story!  Pretty amazing stuff!

So let me get this straight, you have to go and play another family in order for the couple to procreate?

I'm not Pam, but I know the answer. Yes, you need to control another household for a SimBot to procreate. That's exactly how Uriah was born, and his kids. SimBots and Mummies can't procreate naturally, but Story Progression makes it somehow happen.

Yes I can vouch for this as I have finally gained the Simbot hybrid. I started off with an inventor who made the Simbot then I moved the Simbot out. It wasn't until the second generation became a teen that I saw that the Simbot had gotten married and it wasn't until the second generation was and adult that I saw the Simbot had a toddler.

I would probably have to use Edit Town and save the entire household.

hehe, that's one way of solving the problem, I guess. I can see how it would be very annoying and difficult to work around. But PLEASE share them Pam, oh please! ;D

Chapter 10:  The Times, They Are A-Changing


What a change it is being a parent!  Little Strawberry and Flamingo are long out of the blanket stage and are tearing around the house.  Bebe and I have taught them how to walk, talk, and go potty.  They have a very strange way of walking as young SimBots.





All of us in the house have a bad first reaction to them, like all Sims have with SimBots.  It's especially hard for Bebe because she loves them so much and tries to be a good mother, but she truly cannot help her natural reactions.  I don't like it either and when it happens for me, I just push past it and keep doing what I'm trying to do.  I think the saddest part is that the twins really dislike each other.  They are both the sweetest girls and can't help the way they are.  They are much too young to understand about loving someone even if you're frightened or upset.  Strawberry and Flamingo will need a lot of help if they are ever to become sisters to each other, or even friends.





Dad adores them, of course.


I would still like to have a large family.  Bebe, too.  My Watcher left us alone for awhile again, but no luck with babies this time.  Bebe took a job in Politics and when my Watcher returned, she was not happy and made Bebe quit her job right away.  I guess it's just not part of my Watcher's plan for Bebe to have a career.  When not tending to Strawberry and Flamingo, Bebe has to work on cooking, Dad works on fishing, and I work on gardening.  It looks like a specific plan, but I don't understand the mind of my Watcher.  I do as she asks, though, because look how much she has given me already.  A wife to love me, a beautiful home in which to thrive, and my two darling girls.  Watcher has made it known to me that she will leave us one more time, but no more.  We can try for more children on our own and if it doesn't work again, we will think of something else because I don't like being separated from my Watcher.

Author's note:  I've got some videos of Strawberry and Flamingo that I'm uploading to Facebook.  It will take me awhile to get them all done.  For a start, here's Uriah going hot tubbing.

Is that elongated walking from when they aged up, or do they toddlers always walk like that?

The one with very dark hair like Uriah is Strawberry.  The one with the long hair the color of Bebe's is Flamingo.  I've posted a video on Facebook of them walking to get a better idea of what's actually happening.

Loving the story Pam, thank you for sharing this.

I have a some questions though, did you get a notification telling you that the twins were going to age up?  How many days were the twins nooboos for?  And could the twins already walk when they aged up or did you have to teach them?  And if so did you get any pictures or was it just like teaching a sim toddler to walk?

I know in my dynasty the Simbot/Vampire Hybrids crawled to begin with and I never thought of having one of my immortals teach them how to walk, I'm just curious as to what happens and may have to reopen my file to find a few things out myself  :D

And I'm learning quite a few tips from reading your story.
