TS2 Going Oldschool- Another Long One

Chapter 6

I really think I'm getting the hang of this game.  And yet every day I find something new.  There's going to be a huge gap where I didn't take any pictures or write anything down for the blog so I'll try to fill it in by memory.  Sorry about that!

Maxwell Goth aged to child and this is what he was wearing, poor kid.  As you can see I've already taken him to the dresser to look for a more suitable outfit.

  • That night Mortimer haunted the house all night scaring everyone.  Including waking up Maxwell and scaring him!
  • I moved Jimmy, Lilith and the new baby to the new apartment building.  I got it furnished and then sold what I didn't need.  Jimmy put the baby into the crib and she and the crib disappeared!  He got her out of the invisible crib to feed her and I stopped freaking out until I noticed that Jimmy and Lilith's bed and a couple other things were also apparently invisible.  I searched the forums forever until I found a mention of the stuck object remover.  Well yes I had that and had no clue what it did.  I put it down where the invisible stuff was and poof it nuked them all.  I was then able to buy new furniture.  I didn't have this problem when I moved the rest of the families into their apartments later.
Here's a pic of the new apartment building. They have the 4 ground floor apartments.  Those trees on the right are a nuisance.  The landlady doesn't take care of them and my sims don't have time.

  • After Monica and Alexander move into their apartment they try for baby and I hear the chimes.
 Alexander summons the head of the werewolf pack using the mailbox and makes friends with him.

After hours of play Balin the werewolf nibbles Alexander.  The annoying part is the whole neighborhood has an opinion about Alexander becoming a werewolf.  Every house I go to wants Alexander cured and fears him howling. 

So Cassandra and Don both had the wish for a baby but they're too old in my opinion to have a baby so I got a mod that lets adoption fulfil that wish.  Meet Devon Goth.

  • Lilith is promoted to level 10 of the music career gaining her a platinum aspiration meter.
 It's Samantha, David and Frances's daughter's birthday.

Oh these outfits they start out with!

  • Moments after Samantha's birthday their dog Fai-Zai died.  As you might remember when they adopted him he was an elder.
  • Everyone has a wish for a puppy but the only puppy on adoption is doofis and pigpen so I made a black lab and a poodle and put them into the house and had them try for puppies.
 Alexander's alien son Cosmo aged to toddler.  At least he's dressed okay.

  • Alex started a robot store with a store I found on Mod The Sims.  He didn't do very well and got a bad review within hours and finally hired an employee.  Later I put in a bunch of stuff to do and restroom, shower, vending machines and put a ticket machine.  I spent a fortune but had a blast.
 So this is my latest victim.  Marigold Bloom and I swear this was her first action after moving in.  The irony of smell the flowers is that I am going to make her a plant sim.

I infest the trees and she sprays them repeatedly.

That was easy!  She's so pretty.

  • I once again used the matchmaker and Marigold met Warren Owens.  They had 3 lightning bolts.  He was dressed as a chef so I looked him up and he's a cuisine npc but playable so she moved him in.
 The servo Zeek helped Talin, Jimmy and Lilith's baby age up.  I later gave her hair poor girl.

Alex and Eliza's son Simon ages to child.

  • My vampire Draco and his wife Allegra finally rolled the want to have a baby.  Now it's just getting her pregnant when one of them isn't sleeping.
 Sweetheart the poodle gave birth to 4 puppies, 2 boys and 2 girls.  They gave the father Rover to Alexander.

  • Monica and Alexander have a little girl Emy.
  • Marigold the plant-sim is pregnant.  I'll have her have a plant baby when this one is older.
 Jimmy and Lilith bought a vacation home.  They went to a bunch of community lots and I look forward to taking more sims on vacations.

Angela and Brittney Pleasant's son Benjamin aged up to child.

Jimmy and Lilith's daughter Talin aged to child.

Cosmo ages to child.

Ester (the good witch) daughter's aged to child.  This is Matilda.  I didn't get a pic of Sabrina for some reason. :(

Ok I know what you're thinking but no, I did not cheat twins this time!  Completely random twins for Draco and Allegra.  I ended up having Allegra quit her job because I didn't want to deal with the stupid Nanny again.  Oh and their names are Tre (boy) and Tori (girl).

The Goth's oldest son aged to teen.  He rolled the knowlege aspiration.  (I'm still using a number randomizer for the aspirations cuz I can't pick!)

  • The puppies that I'd hoped to make labradoodles just look like poodles.  I kept the one that was potty trained and gave the rest up for adoption.
 David's daughter Samantha aged to teen.  She rolled the fortune aspiration.

Devon Goth aged to teen and rolled the pleasure aspiration.

So as you can see I played a lot since kids were aged from toddler to child or child to teen in one post.  Sheesh.  I just get into it.  There were a lot of birthdays and more to come!  One thing I didn't mention is that Rhys and Sierra Marx are about to die so are giving things away to their children so they don't leave a bunch of money to waste.  The kids bought business/community lots that I downloaded with some of the money and will buy vacation homes with some more.

TS2 Going Oldschool- This Is Gonna Be A Long One!

Chapter 5

My experience with Sims 2 has changed as I've learned more and gotten used to things that at first surprised me.  I had this whole scenario in my head of what I wanted to happen to my sims and once that scenario was played out I hit a wall.  Hence the creation of the vampire and witch.  Vampire and witch you ask?   Yea well, I do want to experience everything this game has to offer.  I know I haven't touched the tip of the iceberg as far as things to do, It's just finding them and doing them.  So here it is the loooooooong update:

Monica Marx graduated from university and gets an apartment in the building with her brothers, next to David.  I had hoped this would help with David's noise problems but it hasn't.

Monica, David and Jimmy chatting outside of the apartments.  I think it's so cool they can interact when I'm not playing them.

Now that his twin is an adult Alex is aged up to adult as well.  Him and Ms. Bot move out.  At first I was going to move them to the apartments too but the only one left is super expensive.

First Alex moved in with Eliza and I aged her up but I hated that house and Alex wants a robot selling business (I'm not even sure if he can do that now.) so I found this house on Mod the Sims called #22 CrumpleTop Lane.  It took a bit for me to figure out how to download a house since I'd tried once before and failed but I got it!

Alex rolled the want to be engaged and then married so here's the wedding party.

After the wedding the neighborhood welcoming commitee stopped by and the whole group went crazy playing kicky-bag.

  • Later that day they both rolled the wish to have a baby so they tried for baby and I heard the chimes.
  • I play Rhys and Sierra Marx next.  It was really weird and kinda boring playing them with no  kids left in the house.  The house is also way too big.
 I play Lilith Pleasant for 2 days so she can graduate.  Now it's just Alexander Goth left at university.  I moved Lilith into the last apartment slot.  I still have hopes to get her and Jimmy together.

  • David and Frances adopted a dog and it was an elder!  I was so mad.  It costed a lot of money and had no special skills either.  Frances was low in her mood bar and I was trying to fulfill one of her wishes to get it up.
  • Jimmy's servo Zeek went crazy and had to be repaired.  He was running around like a maniac!
 Okay so I decided I wanted a same-sex couple in the neighborhood.  It took a lot of fooling around and searching online but I finally got Angela Pleasant to like girls.  Then she called the matchmaker.  She was matched up with Brittney and they got along great.  Only problem is there was no "propose" button.  So more searching and I find one person said that in their case the other sim was in college.  So I close the game, go to SimPE and sure enough she's in college.  So I uncheck college and open the game and finally am able to propose Brittney move in.  Whew!

I play Alexander Goth 3 days to finally graduate him.  Now I have nobody at university and I'm sad, I like university in Sims 2... hated it in Sims 3.

First I moved him back home at the Goths temporarily so that he can summon aliens.  He gets abducted and moves out and in with Monica.  Neither of them have the wish to get married so I don't marry them.

  • For some reason when I'm playing Jimmy his brother David's wife keeps trying to kiss him!  I keep having to cancel the action.  Finally I used SimBlender and put their relationship to -20 hopefully that stops it.
 David and France's daughter Samantha ages to toddler.

  • Alexander is pregnant with an alien baby and rolled the wish to become a werewolf!  I'm thinking about it.
  • Lilith Pleasant proposed to Jimmy and he said yes!  I was like holy cow he said yes.  :)
Angela and Tiffany are united.

  • Jimmy asked Lilith to move in with him and actually got the wish to marry Lilith!
 There was no room in the apartment for an arch so they just said their vows in their regular clothes with just Jimmy's parents there.  But that's kinda their style, they're more laid back.  Once they were married they both rolled the baby want.  I guess they'll have to move.

Samantha learning to walk after drinking smart milk.  She's already been potty trained.  That stuff is great.

Alex and Eliza have a baby boy Simon.  
(Sorry about the darned walls)

I got this apartment building off of Mod the Sims it's by ChicaGuapa called Giulianella.  I moved both sets Marx twins and their families in.... After playing in it awhile I feel it's too small and hard to maneuver around in.  I found another building and have put it down just haven't moved anyone yet. 

 Alexander gives birth to an alien son Cosmo.  He was outside getting the mail, lol.

Alex and Eliza's son Simon ages up.  What the heck is he wearing?  I've gotta find out how to change toddlers clothes!

  • Mary-Sue and Daniel Pleasant move out leaving the house to Angela and Brittney.
 Angela adopts a toddler Benjamin.  The caseworker just walked into the yard and dropped him in the snow then left!

Lilith gives birth to a baby girl Talin.

  • I removed the 2x lifespan mod but it doesn't affect the sims already under it's spell until they age to their next lifestage, ugh.  I thought that would make things easier if they went faster since I play them a day each from 7am-7am.
  • I downloaded a "nursing home" apartment thing and put the Pleasants and the Marx into it.  The rooms are really small.
I got bored so I made a new sim named Draco Vinx and his dog Succubus.  I'm going to make him a vampire.  Mwahahahaha.  He used the matchmaker and found the perfect girl Allegra.  He couldn't ask her to move in so I had to go to SimPE and take her out of college then she moved in and got engaged.

The next day after making Draco a vampire and being bored with it I decided to make a witch.  So this is my newest sim Ester and she's my first CC sim.  She's about to become a witch, I hope.

Yay she meets the good witch!

And now Ester is a witch cool deal.

  • I got Ester a house off of Mod the Sims (didn't write down which house sorry).  Then called the matchmaker.  She kept dropping elder sims so it's a good thing Ester used motherlode.  Finally she dropped Jimmy and he seemed good looking and had 2 lightning bolts.  Once again he was in college so back to SimPE to take him out.  They got married right away.  She gave birth to twin girls (I cheated and used force twins) and named them Sabrina and Matilda.
 I switch back to Draco and Allegra and they get married.  No wants for babies yet.  Actually they both keep having stupid wishes and I'm like ugh wish for a baby!  LOL

So I'm not sure where I'm going with this right now.  I want to play one of each of the supernatural species and try out more of the Open For Business and vacation (forget the expac name) stuff.  I'll try to update more regularly as it's a real pain with this many pictures.  Any suggestions leave a comment.  ;)
