Chapter 18 Picspam

Oh, hi!  Yeah, it's me.  I know it's been a while (almost a month?  Where the Hell does time go?), but I come with presents.  I have picspam for you, from the last chapter.  I hope you like.

So, yeah.  I killed Eldon.  Originally, I had planned on having him not survive babyhood, but I couldn't bear to do that to him (or Anne).  But I couldn't get the idea of losing him out of my head.  So, dice roll.  If the numbers matched, Eldon was going.  I rolled a 6 both times.

Still, it let me have an interesting storyline.

I almost used this pic for the chapter, but Joseph's face wasn't quite right.  Plus, the posed shot fit the story so much better.

Pics from the funeral:

Yeah, it was sad.  That is all.

On to the Menon house.

Calla is a gorgeous girl.  She will feature in the next chapter (grin).

I loved this shot, because it looks like Jason is teaching Calla to play the piano.  Of course, he's just giving hobby instruction.  I would have used it, but it didn't fit into the story.

You already got spammed with wedding shots, but there are two that I wanted you to see:

Poor Marsha.  She was still pregnant with Cyrus at this time, and her motives kept tanking.  I thought I maxmotived enough to keep her happy, but apparently not.

Victor and Jane's wedding portrait.  Don't they look happy?

Staying with the Thayer/Hutchins household for a moment, Phily and Meadow amaze me at their similarities.

They grew up in equally bad outfits.

Meadow's LTW was to reach her Golden Anniversary.  She threw a luncheon for all Phily's family that was local and that the liked (so, no Alex or Matthew).  I would have invited Alex, but for a while I thought this scene would be included in the story.  It didn't work out that way.

"Hey, Victor.  Your mom..."

"...she got engaged..."

"...to your father!"  And the look on Meadow's face tell us exactly what she thinks of the good prof (may he rest in peace).

More silliness:

Meadow: "My wife is hot!"
Kaylynn: "My husband's cousin is hot!"  Kaylynn heart-farts Isaac all the time.  And this is a rare moment when Meadow is doing an appropriate heart-fart.  Normally, she heart-farts Henri.

Cute kids alert:

These guys are the best.  They really are great friends, and come and go home from school with each other.

Lizzie is still great.

One of the last moments of Taddy as a boy.  He's a teen in game now, and still a blast to play.

Love this:

The annimations with the Don't Wake the Llama table are awesome.

Taddy really did like helping out in the garden. 

Viola is a little cutie.

She's got a good blend of her parent's features.

And she is quite the artist.

Marsha is very proud of her little girl.  And now that Viola can use the big girl easel, I'm sure the walls of the house will be covered with her paintings.  I really hope she rolls the Visionary LTW; it would suit her so well.  But as she's a spare, I can change it when she moves out and get married if I want.

A peaceful moment:

Well, until James comes home and starts shouting about his A+ in school.

When James isn't playing with Taddy, he's got another playmate.

Even if James does have a slightly violent streak.

Marsha and Jan really do not like each other.

Jan: "Want to play red hands?"
Marsha: "Uh, no.  No way lady."

Jan: "Why not?"
Marsha: "Because I don't like you."

And lastly, for more laughs (I think I've shared soem of these before, but they're worth repeating).

Uma and Carolina getting their licks in.  Poor Jan (not).

I hope you enjoy.  I'll be playing and filming in the main house over the next few days, and will get to the chapter shortly.

...Those are horrid grow up outfits. At least you're not playing an apoc!

I'm not surprised Meadow heartfarts Henri - it's in the Romance Sim coding.

Can't wait to see the next chapter!

The horrible outfits is probably why I will never try an apoc. I really don't get why Maxis put such crap elder clothes in to begin with.

I didn't know that about the coding. And Isaac is Romance too...so that would explain why Kaylynn heartfarts him.

I can't wait to get the next chapter out...some of this stuff has been in my head for a while, and it's almost a relief to get to the point where I can actually play/stage/write it.

Yeah, even sims with negative chemistry will heartfart Romance Sims if they're of the gender that the heartfarting sim likes. It's odd, but...such is sims.

Why did they put in half the clothes that they did? My founder’s wife Elle 'grew up' into that same black top. But I think there is an even worse one with some kind of red bra thing underneath- must be for hooker granny. unsure laugh

Even with romance as secondary they will get more heartfarting, even if there is negative chemistry.

Love the Llama table face.

Elder clothing is horrible. Some of the expansion pack stuff is okay, but the base game stuff is crap. I found All About Style early on, and their elder clothing is great.

Meadow is Family/Knowledge, Phily is Knowledge/Romance, and Henri is Romance/Knowledge. Ah, the joys of family drama. I've never checked the chemistry between Meadow and Henri; too afraid that it will lead to trouble. But inappropriate heartfarts are good for a laugh.

Llama table is full great faces. It's even funnier when the adults get all excited about it.
