Is the into the future portal meant to turn up at uni? I have to confess that my game is so bugged that this update is comprised of multiple saves on two machines.  I really don't think the game likes this travelling to and from uni thing.  Even though it's supposed to be part of it.  Yeuch.  I guess we'll be doing pretty much everything else before Into the Future then.

And we find another potential mate for PgsFromCeefax.  Her face shape and skintone are great but I can't tell if she's a vampire (BOOO) or a werewolf (YAY) although I suspect the former.

We're keeping SuperCasino around for a bit as she doesn't have enough LTH to get a medium grave yet, and she's a good artist so can help with portraits.

We tried to do portraits on the holo-easel but whenever we tried to take a shot, all we could take was wallpaper.  Anyone else had this issue?

24HourSpar invited Cid Severus over because even though she's not the heir, I ship this so hard and really want hipster fairy babies.  Then the game crashed so blech.

    Haven’t played with them myself so it’s just gibberish to me. But hey seem to agree that its an interaction between 2 sims with sprites that triggers it.
    If you are trying for all 11 sprites some of them can only be gained by reaching a certain level in ITF careers or advanced tech skill.

    Why is it that uni always looks so much fun when others do it?

    • Thanks Pink, that’s great! will try those ideas out. Yes we’ll go for all sprites but maybe or maybe not with JD. We have to do the other ITF LTWs anyway at some point, so no real rush.

      Uni is fun but also infuriating.

  3. Hey, I’m a new reader and a new simmer – I started reading maybe last week – and I’m now practically caught up – are you going to go past ten generations for this experiment/legacy? 🙂
    BTW Excellent so far!!

    • Yes, as long as it takes. I am guessing we will need about 13 gens. And welcome!

  4. I’m with Heather, your posts are so full of learning, but the Dayes make learning FUN (no sarcasm intended). So enthused to try out ITF…which means I have to find the disc now.

    24HourSpar is so gorgeous (as most of the Dayes are), and I love Cid Severus. Purple+blue hair FTW.

    • ITF is neat so far although we haven’t yet tried travelling again. I am all about 24HourSpar/Severus babies despite her not being heir.
