Farraway Legacy 1.2 [Jan. 1st, 2015|09:43 am]

Happy holidays and a happy new year to everyone! I hope 2015 is just as amazing (or better) than 2014 was. 2015 is going to be an exciting year for me.. I'm graduating from college in May (if all goes well) and I'll be taking a year off before applying for graduate school. It's strange to think that when I first got into this community, I was still in middle school and had no idea that I would even go to college. I hope to still be in the community for years to come!

I've been sitting on this update for a little while so some of these pictures might be old for those who follow me on tumblr. :)




Synchronised scolding of your baby when he wets himself keeps the family together, don'tcha know?


The house is a mess. You should see the diapers.


Ericka: Oh look, it's my lovely wife.


Ericka: how dare she talk to someone other than me kda;nvieasnd;k




There was a lot of 'calling in sick' this update.


(The experts, of course!)


Boo yaaaaah!


Meanwhile, they have bug problems at home. :( People kept running out to stomp on the roaches and then cry.




NOOO. STAY AWAY FROM THE ROACHES.




I had to call in professional help.


Ericka, I know you love your baby but stay away from him when you're sick.


Oh. Well that's ok then.




Alfred Farraway
2/8/9/6/1
He's a sloppy & mean sim like his mom(s)!
LOOK AT HIS FACE.


No elf ears but LOOK HOW CUTE.








At this point, I had to headdesk a little. They were getting by on NO simoleons (because I had to keep calling them both out sick), there was a toddler in the house (which I am notoriously bad at), and no one was really in the green in terms of mood.






Pizza, ftw!


Pop!




Lucy's pregnancy this time was even worse. I kept almost letting her die from hunger, and the bed I had for them was not good enough for her to recoop her losses when she was exhausted. She basically shuffled from the bed to fridge for most of it, with me frantically hoping she wouldn't die. :( Sorry, babe.






STOP BEING NICE TO HER. SHE LET THE BURGLAR GET AWAY WITH YOUR TV.


Pop 2! (In Alfred's room, which I was able to afford with Ericka's promotion.)




NOOOO. I knew this would happen eventually. :(






Ericka: WHY IS OUR HOUSE SO DIRTY :( :( :(
I dunno, you're the one with no neatness points.


Oh, thank god.




YOU CANNOT LOOK AT THIS BEEBIN AND NOT LOVE HIM.






Uh oh, baby time!


/sigh of relief


It's another boy! I named him Jeeves (naming theme is roughly butler themed, if you can't tell).
As far as I can tell, he's Ericka's skin tone with black hair and green (!!!!!) eyes.




Sloppy sims.


This is where I got really desperate for cash and started having Ericka dig for treasure.




Bills they can't pay. :(


/promptly sells to pay bills.
Sorry guys.








Character bias? What's that?


WHOEVER IN THE HOOD KEEPS DOING THIS, I WILL SMITE YOU.


AGHHH.


Playing catch is srs business in this family.




Alfred continues to dominate.


I love this interaction. :)


Proof that Jeeves is still alive.


... Oh. How interesting.

I did give Jeeves a makeover and he looks very much improved! I think he'll grow into his features a lot, but I don't actually know since I haven't had a chance to play since I took the caps for this update. Still, I'm excited.
Also, I'm not sure why this is, but I feel like in new / clean hoods, the first 8-10 babies born are always boys (see my maxisbea hood for another example). Any ideas anyone? Or is it just a fluke?

I've noticed as well that with clean and largely unpopulated hoods the game seems to want to balance things out with boys first. For me it's never been more than 4 boys in a row, though.

Lots of bad things this update! I usually ignore the chance cards because they make me nervous, but maybe I should push out of my comfort zone as well.
Great update, despite almost dying!

Hmm, I'm glad that someone has noticed the same thing! This is the second or third hood that I've noticed this with, so you could be right that the game is trying to balance things out. :)

I also usually ignore the chance cards, but I've been having fun so far! It's like rediscovering an aspect of the game!
