I don't want to cheat, but I do want a resolution for the family so there's not a 'bad end'.

I'm thinking there are only two options that still respect the rules (Where children have to be raised in the house to count); I can create a adoption-type of facility that the family owns where that child will sleep and I won't play them but they'll be around for family milestones or to tell the story of the adoption to lengthen the process, or to move the kid into the active family and then immediately send them to boarding school where they can come back for holidays or something.

Thoughts?


Eeeehhhhh I have to agree with everyone else. Story is more important than rules. If it really bothers you, send the kid off to boarding school. I've been pretty flexible in my own game with the child roll because I'd rather enjoy playing my game than have to stick to something that will make me unhappy with my game. Just me 2 cents.

I have an update! Chapter 3.17: My Heart is Yours

New chapter! I have the pictures for two more chapters, though I need to get the pictures for the next chapter. I'm going to try something different. It won't work for the next generation, but I think it's neat for the first one.

Anyone here still remember Katerchen? The black and white male founder cat of my old Koyangi legacy? He's lost. The real life him, not the sims version. It's been 4 and a half days and I'm absolutely devastated. I put a cardboard box with his blanket, his favourite shirt of mine, food, and water outside. I sprinkled some soiled litter of his around to help him find his own scent. I have posters all over the neighborhood. I asked neighbors if they saw him and got many hints, unfortunately there is another very similar looking cat in the neighborhood who they have most likely seen. I check every block's cellar, I sit outside at nights (when it's quiet and he is more likely to come out), call and sing. But so far nothing...
He's been an indoors cat for 8 years... I don't know if he can find his way back home alone. I'm a wreck and just crying all the time, haven't been as sad about human people's death as I am about my cat's disappearance.

Sorry for going completely off-topic, but I just can't not talk about it. I keep reading and commenting on your stories, will also continue my own once I'm in the mood for that again. But I'm just unbelievably sad right now.
PS: Also sorry for not responding to comments on my RLC, for whatever reason I managed to unsubscribe from my own blog. Trying to find that option somewhere....

@Nocriel, I'm so sorry you're dealing with that right now! I love kittes and when a stray isn't looking well I always say a prayer for it or try to find someone who can help it. I hope you don't mind if I say a prayer for Katterchan too. Have you tried leaving something that he likes outside, even something he sleeps on or that may smell like him?

Sorry about your cat, Nocriel! I hope you find him soon.

I've been having problems with blogger too. It's not sending comments to my email. Not sure what the issue is.

So, hello people.

Sorry for the radio silence (again). I had a breakdown at work and had to take some time away from everything to recover.

Hopefully I'll be back with some more Nicholson content soon!

Thank you. I've taken some time to re-energise myself, and I am back with the final chapter of Generation One!

It's a biggie, so come prepared.

@slashbanghorror I hope today is a better day!!

I've been back-commenting on a few of your stories people, but I have no idea which ones I've missed honestly and some I've read from my phone where comments are different, I'm not sure what I've left out. But I'll try!

Hello!

So, due to unforseen circumstances that I am not complaining about, I've had my hours cut back at work to my regular contracted hours.

Which means that I will have more time for the Nicholson family! :D

Guess who's back with a brand new chapter after a bit of mental health flip flopping and exams?
Heeeeeeeyyyyyyy

Also hi to all new people and hi to returning people, I'm your local trash who updates about 5 chapters in five days and then vanishes for like two months *peace emoji*

In the usual me tradition, I've got a chapter out!
Update! Chapter 4.10 Proposals not that kind of proposals lmao

I'll try and catch up but most likely I'll just join in on the latest chapter and pretend like I know what's going on (a few I really wanted to proper catch up on last time bc I was really involved in the story but I was procrastinating bc my attention span is that of a goldfish lmao)

Thank you for the kitty encouragements, to my great relief I did find him 5 days (and 5 hours) later! And made him promise not to scare me like that ever again, I was so worried he could be locked in some neighbor's garage, cellar, or whatever...

1.7 - An unstable personality

Here's a new Nothing Is Free update. It's actually the last one for this generation. Pretty fast, huh? I guess I could have made two chapters out of this + some extra screenshots I have lying around here but I wanted to catch up to where I am in-game, which is at the start of generation 2. I will *try* to make generation 2 not so super short but I wanted a RLC that is faster than my Harris legacy so it probably won't be much more than ten-ish chapters per generation.
Also sorry for the wonky layout in this chapter, I have no idea what's going on with blogger, it looked just fine before I posted it.

So, I am faced with a problem.

I'm playing through Gen Two of the Nicholson's, and things have broken. Not game breakingly broken, but still broken. Connor is in the firefighter career, and he spends his whole time there fixing the fire engine and alarm. Because of this, there is so few screenshots of anything actually happening. I would try and start again, but the only save I have of the game is when Connor has a wife (who is pregnant) and Kathleen has a baby from some French dude.

So, with there being no way to undo what's been done, and with me having to change Connor's career to being a magician (Yay for Showtime) due to the firefighter career being broken, is it okay if I do a "Here's a summary of what happened, now to cut to the action" style thing?

I'd say whatever you find easiest is fine. I mean, I know there's a general rule of story>rules, but if you're playing more like, strict, then I'm pretty sure there was a rule that was something like "if the game makes a career unplayable, it's all game". If it's just story, then you just do you, whatever will cause you the least amount of hassle or whatever you want to do most (which trust me, if you're anything like me, those two things are completely separate lmao)

If you sim's career is glitched, you may roll another one for them (general rule #15).

How you blog about the challenge is not covered under any rules and is entirely up to you.

*pokes head in*

Hi! Despite the many years since I've updated (including moving computers and apparently only having my Avendale stuff on my external HDD which is currently borked), I've been fiddling with my Avendales recently! Not sure when I might have another update; depends on if I want to wait to see if said external is recoverable and what (if anything) I had on there for 7.6 or if I just want to forge ahead.

Unfortunately, since I only was posting rolls on my blog/tumblr as they were revealed, I absolutely cannot remember what my misc fun goal was for gen 7. I've also gotta refresh myself on the rules a bit because I tend to follow my own little rule of story > rules so I usually use the rolls as a guideline/structure rather than an end-all, be-all.
