Pictures from the main house and college this time!



Bradford


It was fall, and Jefferson decided to help Cindy with the harvest.


This is one of the coolest things ever. It’s a tree swing from Affinity Sims, and the tree is seasons enabled. I can’t wait for generation 8 to use it. :D


Cindy needed some elixir to get her age where I want it with the new aging hack.



And since it was fall, it was time to skill skill skill.



Soon, it was Nick’s turn to head off to college. You’ll see more of him in a little bit.



For some reason, Dotty and Danny were very behind on where they should have been for skilling, so they did a lot of it this rotation. Fall + skill cap + energizer = scholarships.


It really annoys me when CC does things like this. Might be time to redo the bathrooms to get rid of this sink. It’s only been, oh, since generation 2 that they’ve looked like this. Yeah, time for an upgrade, I think.


Sometimes, I think the family’s a little too close.


James will be the only tub pirate soon, as Nick is too serious.


Uh, NO.


Much better. These two are so awesome together.


I think James knew that Jefferson was going to go this rotation, so he spent a lot of time with his dad. Here they are playing whap, as James like to throw the football hard.


Jefferson was pretty awesome. I was really sorry to see him go. His death in the chapter was staged, as I didn’t get the shots I needed for the chapter. This is his actual death.








Goodbye, Jefferson. I’m going to miss you.





I took out the no inheritance hack, as it was messing with the transfer of owned community lots and vacation homes upon deaths. So everyone got a nice windfall.


Danny did this all on his own as I was setting up for Nick’s college departure, and I just had to use it.


So Nick will ask Alice to marry him early next chapter, and she’ll get a shiny custom engagement ring to wear. I can’t wait to show it to you!

College

Rosalie was the first one I moved into college, as I needed to change her aspiration to Family, and then figure out who she was going to marry.


It’s this downtownie spawned by my game. He was originally name Yoosin or something like that, but I used a random name generator, and his name is now Bruce Thorne. So Rosalie will be Rosalie Thorne when she marries, and this amuses me greatly.



I gave him a makeover, and I can’t figure out whether he’s face 1 or 2, or if I’m totally wrong. Thoughts?



Nick & Alice were next. Nick’s outfit is okay. Alice’s not so much.



Alice got Cheesed, which was good as she was still stuck with the Grow Up aspiration, one of the unfortunate side effects of growing up children with the feature that came with FT. I was worried she wouldn’t cheese as she was platinum from a “Go to College” want, but she was good and is now a Grilled Cheese Sim. I rarely play them, so I’m oddly excited to see how it goes.



And here they are looking all spiffy after their makeovers.


Nancy and Audrey as college students.


This is one of the dormies in Nick’s dorm; I need to remember to give the poor guy a better hairstyle the next time I’m on that lot.


Nick is a big fan of making sure the cow mascot stays away.


And Alice is not fazed by a streaker. I’m always amused when I see this modern stuff in my not-so-modern game.




I know it’s because Nick has Romance as his secondary aspiration, but he’s got a fan club and gets heart-farted everywhere he goes. I prefer to think it’s because Nick is awesome.


Alice, if she’s around, usually does something like this. It’s as if she’s saying “MINE, BITCH.”



She’s got nothing to worry about. Nick has eyes only for her.


Nick & Walter work on their body skill and enjoy the FT objects I put on their dorm lots.


I moved both of them to the fraternity house, and they spend their days doing this. Walter has 1 nice point; Nick has more, so chess usually ends up like this.


Over in the girls dorm, no one bothers to put books away.


Rosalie and Alice don’t always get along well. And it’s usually Rosalie who starts it.



In other news, Shirley and Walter are now in love. :D


Rosalie must suffer the indignity of jump rope, as she needs more body skill.


Alice made a friend who will talk with her about Cheese. So she was able to get and stay platinum.


Rosalie is not always the lady she lets on.


And she does swoon over Bruce. :D





Rosalie also made herself an enemy. I can’t feel bad for her, as she somehow brought it on herself. And look at Shirley in the background there, looking smug.


I’m trying to get Alice to eat as many sandwiches as possible in college, but it’s hard in a dorm.


Alice and Shirley, who is GC secondary, get along much better than Alice and Rosalie do.


The girls have since moved into a house, making it much easier for Alice to eat cheese.


And for the last picture, see the girls headed off to a final exam. Note that only Shirley doesn’t bother to change out of her PJs.

So that’s all there is for the picspam for the last chapter. I’m working to get the details of the next chapter hammered out so I can start working on it soon.

Loving all the picspam. :) Poor Alic's grow up outfit and Rosalie fighting lol.
Have you seen the cheese counter? http://www.modthesims.info/download.php?t=270365 You might already have it.

I'm not great at spotting face templates but that is definitely not face one but it could be face two with the slight beak nose.

Thanks. Alice's dress certainly wasn't the worst I've gotten, but it doesn't suit her at all. I do have a grilled cheese counter painting, though not that specific one. It is very handy not to have to keep track on a piece of paper or something.

I'm leaning towards it being Face 2, but will probably check it out in bodyshop at some point.

If it's two it's a different nose, I think. I'm pretty sure that isn't the nose I've stared at for 3 generations of Xenobias. ;) But I could be wrong as I can't check.

1950s is a perfect time for new plumbing! ...It needs to be avocado green, turquoise blue, or that bright pink that everyone had in the 1950s.

Oooh, is that Cindy's new coat?

If you don't want the money from inheritance, you can always family fund it away. *shrugs* Better not to cause problems with owned lots.

Bruce may be face 2 but I'm not 100% sure. Best way to figure it out is to extract him and then play in bodyshop.

I like cheese sims, but only once in a while. If you have a hood full of them, it gets to be a bit much, in my experience. One every generation or so is quite enough for me, and preferably if they're in different houses too.

I...can't see Rosalie doing any of the sims things for body skill, at least not in that time period. A modern Rosalie would absolutely be a yoga practitioner, or possibly run on the treadmill for an hour every day, but not a 1940s Rosalie. It wouldn't be ladylike, after all.

I have some walls and tiles that will be perfect for that. Might even make an attempt or two at recoloring some of the in-game plumbing too.

It is! I decided the other one she has didn't suit her, so switched it early. You'll hear about it in the next chapter.

Since I want to update the house a bit, money isn't an issue. But having the family graveyard and the cabin in Three Lakes get lost was a big issue.

I thought he was either Face 2 or 27(? the NOSE face), but I'll have to check in Body Shop.

I'm looking forward to have a full-on Cheese Sim. I've had a few that are Cheese secondary in the 'hood. I'll just have to see how it plays out.

No, Rosalie wouldn't be into any of the fitness forms popular then. Present day Rosalie would, imo, do Pilates or something like that. Or whatever the fad was at that time.

:D When you've had a chance to get all caught up, I imagine picspam will be more fun. But yes, Nick & Alice are very, very cute.

RIP Jefferson, and I adore Cindy's new coat!

Jefferson will be missed, yes. That red coat suits her so much better than the black one I had her in originally.

Rosalie Thorne *giggle snorts* That's awesome and I hadn't picked up on that yet. You do realize her children will all need flower names now don't you?

Awww Nick and Alice! They are always adorable together. You can't blame the other girls for being interested in such a sweet guy though.

Grilled cheese Alice is awesome. I do hope she gets to eat her fill before rationing sets in!

Yay for Cindy's new coat!

And :( I'll miss Jefferson but at least now he doesn't have to be alone.

*giggle* Yeah, that amused me to no end. I only changed his first name, so Thorne is what the game threw at me...and it's fate of some sort. I'll have to see if there are any flower names on the 1940s most popular names list I'll be working off of-if there are, I will probably use them.

No, you can't blame the other girls for wanting Nick. He's quite the catch, but he's only got eyes for Alice.

She'll eat as much cheese as I can stuff in her. I have a feeling they'll be a lot of energizer use in her future, so I can keep her awake to eat.

:D New coat, FTW!

Jefferson will be missed, yes, but he really was feeling all alone with only 3 other members of his generation left, and they were all much younger than him. Of course, it'll soon be baby time, which makes up for all the sadness.

This was fun!

1) Do you know the quick way to get them to 200? If she has at least 4 aspiration perks available, get her enough aspiration points to get an energizer, and just have her conjur 6-8 sandwiches energize and repeat. You can easily have her permaplat bye graduation. (I've been able to do it in 1.5 semesters if it's all the sim does other than go to class.)

2)Bye Jefferson, we'll miss you.

3) Rosalie does bring a lot on herself.

4) You might be able to get some good flower names for Rosalie's daughters, not sure about any sons. And some flower names aren't as obvious, like Daphne. :D

5) That coat is perfectly Cindy!

:D

As she is a grown up child townie, she's not got the 4 full perks yet. :/ Hopefully, she will be soon and I may just leave her at college for the extra semester after graduation just to get her count up.

Jefferson will be missed indeed.

Yes, Rosalie brings a lot on herself.

If there are any flowery names on the Census list I'm working off of, Rosalie's kids will definitely need get them.

It does look nice on her, doesn't it?
