Dayes of plenty

So we got home from uni with every intention of inviting my intendeds, Manisha and Cid, over.  But despite having almost 100% friendship bars and being romantic interests at uni, apparently we weren't good enough friends with them for them to come over.

So LOL to that, we cheated them into the household.

Manisha has the Leader of the Pack LTW - involving turning five sims into werewolves and collecting 40,000 simoleans of stuff when hunting in groups.  The first part of the LTW I am ambivalent about, as it seems just like Falafel's turn the town LTW, but the second part interests me a lot.

Linda McCartney is a surprising accomplice in all these LTWs.  I don't have many shots of her, as she essentially just does this all day, but now she's at Level 10 social networking, she can set sims as being in relationships and best friends.  Setting sims to be friends with Rudiger, Abigail and Quorn is helping their charisma, which they all need in their careers, and it helps Falafel make easy bite victims - I assume the same is true for Manisha.  Linda can't be far off maxing aspects of her skill tasks - meeting sims using the sim finder and changing relationships with the transmogrifier, but selling 5 blogs is going to be hard.  She is still only on her second blog and it's only 2.5 stars rated.  She needs a five star blog for her LTW and to sell five blogs for the skill challenge.

Cid's LTW is greener gardens.  He has to max gardening and do something to 100 plants with 'Bloom'.  We have only just started to use fairy powers so haven't got to 'bloom' yet.  He does project a couple of auras though.

They give him a colourful glow and seem to work like potions in adding moodlets etc.

Falafel has turned all 5 sims into vampires and bitten 15/20 of his victims, so he's close to his LTW now.  I also remembered that he wasn't a born ghost baby so before he goes we'd better try and get one.

Raggedy Man has finished his LTW so he just needs to sire a hybrid heir and then leave.  I spent ages trying to kill him via jetpack or philosopher's stone but to no avail.

He at least looked dramatic while we were trying it.

Tofu is working hard at bot building.  I will play with the plumbots more when he's topped the career and skill.  At the moment I find it a bit annoying that they're forced to go through CAS and be members of your family each time you make one though.  It's a somewhat laborious process.

Speaking of laborious, SuperCasino could have left us ages ago but I've been trying to get her over 75K LTH points and I've been using her as our painter.  She is still not even at 70K despite maxing out the skill.

Between using the social group objects and buying influence with LTH points (which you can do as much as you want - one purchase is roughly equivalent to one level as far as I can tell although that may be just at higher levels) we have now got 24HourSpar to the top of all three groups and she's achieved her LTW.  She can now work in a custom career so she's working through the games testing track for now.

Ice Pop has been slowly learning to scuba dive.  The one time I had a sim try this, with the Knights, he drowned very fast, so I should have learned.

Fortunately we have several of these kicking about.  We tried to resurrect her but her shost needed to be added to the household first.

So we did that and the game went screwy and only recognised Ice Pop as a member of the household, and no-one else.  So we cheated - which wasn't really cheating, it was just unbreaking the game.

Although I have given 24HourSpar fertility treatment to ensure fairy babies, I thought it'd be a laugh to ask for a large family too.  She's not even heir.  I might get Manisha and PgsFromCeefax to ask for this without treatment and see how many kids ensue.

Speaking of kids, I got bored trying to kill Raggedy Man so I MC-ed an insta baby between him and Manisha.  His name is Jafar and he's definitely a werewolf and I guess time will tell if he has any genie in him.

He's working his way through the dreams.  He got one that changed his traits, although most seem to give him moodlets so far.  He also got to share a dream with Rudiger.  Aww.

Ice Pop aged up and I gave her the diving LTW - max her scuba skill and retrieve a bunch of valuable stuff.

Because Ice Pop needs to dive, Quorn is getting nowhere saving lives, the household is enormous and a lot of the Island Paradise LTWs seem to require living in Isla Paradiso, I have now split the legacy into two separate saves, which will reunite once Island life is done.  Ice Pop, Quorn, Cid, 24HourSpar and the quads will live in Isla Paradiso, whilst everyone else remains in Moonlit Falls.  Updates will generally feature both sets of Dayes.  Join us then to se how that all works out!

  1. Woowee! So much! So many fantastic mixes of supernatural and everything! Is anyone just a regular Sim? I’m excited to meet the quads! AND see how your adventures go on Isla Pardiso! The Zales just moved there in my play session last night – I haven’t tried that world since my new computer, so I’m excited to see how it goes myself! Anyhoo, I love Raggedy Man, and I really wish he’d managed to die in jet pack accident – I know you were trying really hard to kill him on that thing. He certainly had some crashes where he LOOKED dead.

    • Yeah Ice Pop and SuperCasino are regular sims. Bit annoying IP needs to be in Isla P to achieve everything but having two saves is working quite well. I am sick of the stupid jet pack not killing them when scuba diving death is so easy to achieve!

  2. I used the philospher ston only one time… and it killed my sims. One I did not want killed! He simply turned stone. How did you have quads? Is it a mod or is it possible in the game accumulating various “fertility treatments”?

    • If you have some Twallan mod or other you can get quads, normally triplets is max. You only get the moodlet for one baby though which is a bit of a gip! Why is it that sims only ever get killed when you don’t want them to?

  3. Oh whenever I’ve had quads get a four baby moodlet.
    As with getting a 5 star blog I’ve been trying that and the simplest way is the Sim does things they want to blog about-strangely make a friend + get a promotion and they will get a moodlet that says they want to blog about it. Click on the sim whilst they are active and one of the options is blog about click it and it will instantly create a blog post without going through the whole phone bit. Plus it is very successful with gaining followers, even if they have a done a few that day already. It’s just tedious to moodlet watch.

    • Really? wow, I never knew that, thanks for the tip!

      How do you get the four baby moodlet then? *Scratches head* Is it with a particular mod update?

      • Just always appeared. I assumed everybody had it. But mod wise I have nraas stuff-story prog,master controller (most likely to be related to that),overwatch,woohooer. The others I have wouldn’t effect moodlets.

      • Yeah, I have all of those too. Weird.

  4. Wow, I am so in awe of how you can control soooo many sims. I go crazy when I have more than 8, and you can split them and still have 8 in one house!

    And man, the Dayes have all the luck with the dangerous things! I had one sim play with jetpacks and she died within a sim day. Though she was in Oasis Landing, maybe the chance is smaller in the present?

    Can’t wait to see them in IP – it lagged really badly in my game, with a two sim household, so I had to give up on it. May try again another time, possibly without using CC, so at least I can try out the diving and resort stuffs. But of course, if/when the Dayes show us all the fun and not-so-fun parts of it, then the rest of us can enjoy the good parts 😉

    Can’t wait to see what the quads look like. Cid has such great hair, but then so does 24HourSpar…

    • I am looking forward to IP and seeing quads grow. I’m kind of used to massive households as the Knights were always overstuffed. Having two saves is good though, I use two machines so play them at the same time. I think sims only die accidentally when you don’t want them to. *Shakes fist at Ice Pop*

  5. wow it’s getting hard to keep track of all these sims haha! just as a refresher can you tell me who’s currently in the house? I would really appreciate it.

    • Main house: PgsFromCeefax, Manisha, Puddle, Jafar, Rudiger, Tofu, Falafel, SuperCasino, JD’s Nitescene, Linda McCartney

      Island boat: Ice Pop, Cid, 24HourSpar, Tinder, Twitter, Facebook, SnapChat

  6. Hi Rad! I love the Dayes! I can’t wait to catch up! (I am at gen 2 or 3)
    You have inspired me to make my own sims 3 blog! If you would check it out I would really appreciate it. But if you can’t/don’t want to I totally understand. PS: I am going to put this blog on my blog roll! (I LOVE YOU!)

  7. are Adrian mole and kodak are gone forever? oh yeah and the other ghosts that exist too.

    • They’re in some other save somewhere… I kind of lost track with moving house every five mins but I will one day put all the dead sims and ghosts back in.

      Some more recent ghosts/bots/etc live in the hood still.
