House 006 Chapter 4
Opened the game back up and was happy to see a house there. It seems so large from map view.
I was bored so I decided to start with a little decorating. Not much done to the upstairs, just bathrooms. I stuck those stacks of towels on the counters so they wouldn’t walk up there to cook on them. I’ll probably put something else there later. Notice the weird wall thing in the 2 front bedrooms? It’s from the roof. I’m gonna have to figure something else out for it.
Here’s where I did the most work. Believe it or not, that’s the fanciest kitchen I’ve ever made. I’m pretty proud of it.
That feeling of satisfaction that you get when your sims use something you made for them for the first time? Priceless. I had no idea how fulfilling building could be until I started this challenge.
It was Sunday, one more day before the maid would come so I decided to have Trent hire a caterer. She was mean.
And insane. No go on the caterer.
Let’s try the pizza delivery again… I’m pretty sure it’s the same guy as the first time. Oh well.
Everyone’s fun need was always low, except Eva who gets fun painting, and I remembered The Sim Supply’s speaker trick. I put one in the office and one in the art room. Viola! Everyone can work and listen and have fun. It’s cute, they bop their heads as they work.
Look who visited that night. I was starting to wonder if the tombstone was bugged or something.
Eva got to spend a little quality time with her dad. It’s kinda cool that he’s there.
First bills since building. I was expecting them to be much higher.
Trent was just finishing up sleeping and I was waiting for the maid to show up and looking over the garden… when Holly walked by looking all sad. I thought oh she’s so cute! Woke up Trent and sent him to meet her.
Too little too late maid girl! She doesn’t seem happy to have missed her chance. I did have one of the girls in the house get to know her and the first trait was mean so I just let her clean the one thing that was dirty and let her go live her angry life somewhere else.
While I was messing around with the maid Trent sauntered into the house. I was like dude get back out there! He had to chase her down. Using get to know 3 times always makes them bored but better safe than sorry. She has good traits and I’m not worried about a job.
Maybe the street isn’t the best place to cloudgaze guys?
Trent returns to the garden and Holly makes herself at home. (and gets a makeover) Kelsie finished whatever book she was working on and came in to say hi.
Bronson comes home from work and gets his groove on to the new speaker. It was so funny!
Dude! Dillon, you’re supposed to be fishing buddy!
And the profits start rolling in.
Yay first literary digest book!
Holly had no gardening skill and nothing needed weeded or watered, just evolved so there wasn’t anything for her to do to help so I set her painting to keep her busy. Guess I need another easel.
Time for a little romance!
You can’t go to bed yet! I want to kiss you.
Well, maybe more than kiss. Also, these pics in their room were so hard to take because of the weird roof situation. I’ve gotta fix it.
Wow, that looks painful guys. I’ve seen sims do this before but it’s the first time I’ve managed to pause quick enough to get a picture.
Dillon came home from work all stressed so I bought a whirlpool tub.
Selfie time! First Trent and Holly…
…then Eva and Dillon.
It’s been just over 11 days. There was one day that I didn’t really take any screenshots. Not sure why other than it’s insane having 8 sims in one house. Gotta get all their needs up, get them in the right moods for whatever work they’re doing, breed all of their frogs (they all now have $160 whirlyflower frogs!), que up their tasks, ect. The garden is the hardest because I can only que up like 8 things to be evolved at once. Then I’ll see Trent roaming around and realize I forgot to que up more. I have heard that there’s an evolve all mod but I’d put that in the category of mods that cheat because it would give an advantage over drifters without it.
House value check: $133,343… I could have done more, they have $71,036 in reserve, but I just didn’t feel like it. I did change a few things since the pictures at the beginning of the chapter but nothing very exciting. Mostly just more stuff in the bathrooms.
