It's really not that unusual though, that you have to be friends with someone before they'll help you with something, in this game... but whatev. I think of all the board tasks in TS3 World Adventures.


Anyway.. I finished this story and I loved it and um now I'm just enjoying LIVING at this location and playing in this town. Was it fun? F### yeah. Is it replayable? Absolutely! But not like all the time. Same with going on vacation to Selvodorada. I don't do that all the time, so I won't replay this story all the time. Maybe in a few months I'll play it again with my favorite scientist son, Padraig. Like, absolutely.

So Ivan solved the mystery and he recruited his cousin and their girlfriends to finish the story, so they did it together which made it even more awesome. Ivan got a job as a scientist because he was inspired by everything he saw and learned in Strangerville. He's a dad now to a little alien baby girl named Grete (Greta) and now the big thing is to get their damn girlfriends to say yes to proposals.

I changed their looks (hair) too.

He's not as handsome as his brother Magnus, he always looks like he's sucking on a hard candy LOL :/ Still pretty cute though


I think the hairstyles really suit them, and I think Kjeld's hair really is conservative enough for a military career.

I'm trying my hand at a legacy again (50th times the charm). After my 3rd gen (normal lifespan) was born I was randomly panning around the communal areas and spotted this. I have a mod that stops food from spoiling, I never noticed this "side effect" before though after 3 years. It makes me want to go into my old saves and look at all the parks lol.

I can't put any of it in my sims inventory because it doesn't belong to them. They'd be set for like 2 generations if I could, lol.

#*%#(*)% So I have been trying to get Kjeld and Cassandra engaged and Ivan and Roxanne engaged. But both boys have been rejected. Twice for Kjeld and one time for Ivan. Thing is, if you pause it just as he propose and the music starts, the music will usually keep playing. If she says yes, the music is all upbeat wedding march. If she says no, its kind of downer music.

So Kjeld and Ivan and their girls were on vacation for 2 days at Granite falls during the winter, on the winter holiday (family day), and I worked Ivan up to a STEAMY EXCHANGE. She said no. I rage quit and took out all my mods. Restarted. Instead of being Saturday, I was now on THURSDAY and the one holiday from the day before was done but it was now family day... weird. This time I tried with Kjeld, working up to a steamy exchange! SHE SAID YES! OH MY GOD. Save save save! Then I tried with Ivan! She. Said. No. I rage quit. Started over and made HER propose. THAT DID IT! HE SAID YES!!! If he had said no, I would have broken them up and moved her from the family and concluded they were not meant to be.

In my rage, I did not even get pics of Kjeld proposing. He's done it so many times now, it's lost its meaning. Oh well, there's always the wedding...



And of course that happened:



There is a bug thread on EA about constant rejected proposals and honestly I wonder, because even after I repaired my game and took out my mods, Roxanne still said no to Ivan.. I don't get why she did...

My sister and I are doing the perfect genetics challenge together. Sister had 5 kids before she got an heir. Me? #16 out of a total 17 babies was my heir. Hopefully gen 2 I have better luck.

Due to utter lack of TS3-friendly servers, I have recently created a Sims 3 discord server! It's brand new so if you'd like to chat here's the link!

FINALLY!



After they married, Cassandra and Kjeld tried for baby and are expecting a girl, so there are two babies on the way. Fortunately their son Max is about to age up to child. Roxanna gave birth to a baby boy named Mads the following day. (The dads are Danes, obv)

Also what is up with Cassandra Goth? Why doesn't she gain any weight? Why doesn't she look stereotypically pregnant even in the 1st trimester? I've experienced teen pregnancy and how 1st trimester teens don't look pregnant, but Cassandra is a YOUNG ADULT and she doesn't look one bit pregnant. Is that typical for certain body types in this game?

I've been working on building some Greek architecture like this Greek temple I made. It was initially a bathhouse but as I'd some research I realized it becoming closer to a temple so I continued down that path.


I also made a random test Sim that I kinda like. I call him Carlos.

I realized I play Sims4 really screwed up.

I'm two more generations down the family tree since last I posted. Hopping from male heir to male heir. My newest heir, Aia, is a serial romantic. But here is the thing. Aia is engaged, and far from faithful to Britta Goth. She teen he ever brought home and just so happened to be the daughter of the Cassandra Goth. Cassandra is the SIm in which Aia's dad exchanged promise rings with but she refused to age up so got married to someone else. Thus having Aia. Next while I was not paying attention he got real flirty with an elder. Which happened to be the father of his half sister Aya. Looking at the elders (Lee Jacobs) family tree at the time of death he had five children with five different mothers so I'm not the only loose sim in town.

Now for this Serial Romantic I decided to weed out the elders to make room. So if he'd meet an elder: woman he'd whoohoo to death, and men he'd whoohoo twice and try for a baby once. Since pregnancy rarely ever worked for me on the first try I never expected a baby so early. SO now Lee is having babies with six differnt sims... And you know is now dead of overexertion. This is going to be so hard to explain to his sister Aya why and how her dad died and why her brother is having her half brother. Now not only is Aya getting a little niece or nephew, but also a new half sibling.

Remember, having your sims cheat around is fine for a single generation, but after a few generations it makes things complicated. XD

My 2 blonde, white sims just had a black baby girl. I have no idea how that happened. I don't have auto wohoo, risky wohoo mods, I'm perfectly sure wife hasn't cheated on her husband, I made them try for baby and the baby is a cute black bundle of joy. She is loved and very well looked after but it's still interesting. Parents are both sims generated in game, so they don't have a family tree, so they have no black ancestors. I suspect something happened at the hospital. I sent them there alone. You know, sometimes hospitals accidentally switch babies. Could that be the case?

Could also be another case of EA's shoddy genetics system. For both TS3 and TS4 they opted for a simplified, pseudo-genetics system instead of TS2 much more in-depth genetics system. Are they EA white or is it a custom skin color? I've noticed that custom skin colors can cause issues.

I'm leaning towards possibly out of date custom skins. My aliens that generate in my game or born in game do not generate with alien skin but rather human skin because the creator of the skin hasn't updated anything in eons.

Custom skin tones. It's probably caused by that. I think I have a set of default replacement skin tones, some face-mask type of skins and also some skin-details type of full skins but I'm not sure it's been a really long time since I downloaded all those. May be one of the sims is originally has black skin, but has a light 'skin detail' type of custom skin on top of it. Hmm... guess I can investigate that in casfulledit.

Well look at it this way. Your female completely fooled the dad into thinking it was his. On top of that hiding the relationship so well the user aka god didn't notice.

I decided to make a gypsy vardo style trailer in the desert this morning. I don't know how or why, but I started messing around with store content I don't normally use. I was fooling around, messing around and got this.


(There's no CC in my game right now. Just mods)

It looked strangely specific and familiar, but I couldn't think of where I'd seen anything like that in real life... but I felt serious deja vous when I was done. I showed it to a friend, He sent me this:


That's Greg Brady's man/cave attic. I haven't even thought about it in decades. Tooo freaky.

3rd gen is now a teenager.
I had him woohoo with his girlfriend and she's pregnant. She is a Pancakes, unfortunately. I was trying to avoid editing anyone for authenticity but Bobs genetics...are the exception. Once I shrunk her jaw down she was cute though.

I must be doing something wrong, because the soon to be 4th gen is now the 4th boy as well! My sims don't have a radio and don't garden so there's no way the the chance is being influenced. All of my CC going to waste
For sale: baby girl shoes, never worn

Edit: Married them and moved her in, she's actually the daughter of the sim in the picture. EVEN THOUGH I edited him when he was a child....it's looking grim for my 4th gen now...very grim.

I tried playing my family where the husband/wife are both veterinarians. Well of course, as usual, playing families with pets rotationally, the pets are ALWAYS sick when I return. ALWAYS. Without fail! But Gage is a vet, right? So I took the pets to the vet and cured them. Or so I thought. Porkchop (they have cats) is still sick, vomiting everywhere, exhibiting fleas, in fact, his vomit pile was unlike anything I've ever seen before.



Besides the small puke pile, that huge green, bubbling, steaming pile of green grossness came from the CAT. He keeps collapsing and I can't get Gage to cure him again because the game doesn't see him as being sick. It's really frustrating. THe wellness treat DOES make the cat happy, but it doesn't remove the symptoms. So I left the family for now, to play Henry (Gage's brother in law), since his kids need to age up soon anyway. Maybe when I'm done with Henry I'll try to see how Porkchop is doing.

I finished with Kjeld, Ivan, Roxanne and Cassandra. Their babies are now toddlers now, and they continue their merry lives in Strangerville in their double mobile home lot, right where I left them.

Fixed my game (haven't played it for a while and had to update my copy of weerbesu's UI mod, which is a life saver with keeping them happy.) and play with the Nordic Council (The collective of the five nations of Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Finland and Iceland represented as human guys by Danish cartoonist Humon.)

Finland was one of the types you never mess with (Hot-headed, Erratic, Mean). But in reality, he writes children's books to teach them about different families, ecologically sound steps to cleaning up Earth and keeping the Earth clean and how to maintain friendships, even if you are angry at someone now. He usually goes out in the field interviewing numerous families and children. While he can keep his composure among families and children, his true colors come out when dealing with his roommates. But he used to be a good friend to Sweden. Then somebody came between the two of them and their friendship became a bitter feud between the two of them over things both trivial and important.

When the game opened up, I caught Denmark and Iceland still in the bathroom talking to the Potty Mouth 2.0 and it's like "WTAF? I'm watching two grown Sim men representing Nordic nations talk to a toilet that Japanese toilet firm TOTO could easily churn out in no time. We spent trillions in research for the tech of the smart house and they spend it cracking jokes."

(My father has an Alexa-enabled unit which he uses a command "Alexa... find me a fart." and the sound plays. Years and millions of dollars later, the AI under the authority of Bezos' company has been abused for trivialized humor.)

Nicky Minaj works as a waitress. (Whoever created her made her boobs HUGE. The food plates sometimes vanish into her boobs when she carries them!)

Ellen Degenerus is CONSTANTLY arguing with the talking toilets in the karaoke bar. I‘m not sure what traits she has that make her do this.

Melania Trump is the leader of a Cosplay club the game randomly generated. So she‘s frequently wandering around town dressed up like Princess Leiah. She also farts. A LOT.

Donald Trump picks up and cuddles stray cats all the time. He feeds them treats and plays with them too.

The prize for strangest thing ever goes to KellyAnne Conway and Snoop Dogg. They met at the Love Festival and flirted the entire time. Gradually, they moved on to snuggling and kissing each other. By the end of the night, they were making out nonstop. I think I‘ll add a woohoo bush in the scenery next love fest. That would make for interesting genetics.


Actually, Ellen admitted to Andrew Stanton (Director of Finding Nemo) she is about as forgetful as her character Dory was portrayed and the way they wrote her character during the early draft in the mid 1990s came from her show in the 1990s where in one scene, she switched topics about 6-7 times which was how they played Dory's short-term memory loss. The fact she's arguing with a toilet wouldn't surprise me one bit.

I'm no expert, but cats can't vote for President. And if they could, they'd vote against him.

When I inserted Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman prior to the existence of Get Famous, during a Comedy Festival, Adam sold t-shirts and explosives and Jamie worked at the bar. I knew Jamie, being 10 years older and a resume full of accomplishments and excellent social skills among humans and animals, both warm-blooded and cold-blooded. Adam...well, his clumsy spills have been compared to the art of the pratfall best interpreted by Charlie Chaplin. I sometimes wondered why Adam was given that assignment.

I'm currently running sort of a "double life" challenge where a single mom is trying to unravel the Strangerville mystery, but can only work on it between 8 and 3 while her daughter is at school.
She also works nights as a pro gamer, has two cats, a puppy, and another baby on the way. It gets pretty insane trying to juggle everything.

So I decided to play Henry since Gage/Amelia's cat was glitching and not improving, and the vomit piles were adding up.

Anyway, Henry's son Lief is soon to age to teen, and Elsa is also soon to age up to adult. I was bored though, so I bulldozed their house and built them a new house using housefloorplans.com.. I didn't want Lief to have to share a room with his baby brother (He's a child but still). Well, I thought Henry and Elsa shall cristen their new home, and OOPS because she got unplanned pregnant AGAIN (Lief was also conceived via 1% risky woohoo). So yeah Elsa is pregnate with another BOY (thats 3) but that's okay, good thing I built a bigger house.


Henry and Elsa were childhood sweethearts, I think that's why I love them so much. They have a long history of being best friends.


Henry's reaction was cute. Better than a pat on the shoulder and thumbs up. Look at her belly too. She's slim but she's got a belly unlike Cassandra Goth who shows no bump in the first trimester.
