Chapter 1.6: We’re Back


Last time, Passion Fruit finally completed her LTW, got married and moved out.  Lemon completed her LTW, but hangs around to take Radish when she moves out since he completed his LTW too.


TS3 2017-02-11 10-50-45-41

Young Jae is still around.

TS3 2017-02-11 10-51-06-55

Orchid is too.

TS3 2017-02-11 10-53-55-16

Banana is getting ready to move out after she graduates.

TS3 2017-02-11 10-52-08-95

Lemon is Banana’s twin and will soon leave.

TS3 2017-02-11 10-54-35-30

Radish gets to age up a little while early since he completed his LTW.

TS3 2017-02-11 10-55-42-14


TS3 2017-02-11 10-56-44-29

and Fig are twins and have forever as teens left to go.

TS3 2017-02-11 10-57-28-77

TS3 2017-02-11 10-57-40-67

Turnip and Eggplant are also twins.

TS3 2017-02-11 10-57-56-74

TS3 2017-02-11 11-00-30-33

Olive and Daffodil are the youngest in the house and are also twins.  Daffodil has been selected as the heiress since she is the youngest.

Everyone had reset when I loaded up the game.  I must have had some mod switches.

TS3 2017-02-11 11-11-00-62

Who cares that we load in at 8am.  Let’s have birthdays early.  Radish goes first so that he can hopefully graduate the next day and get the heck out.

TS3 2017-02-11 11-12-13-24

Then he goes and ages up good looking.  I did not expect that.  He adds Perfectionist to Handy, Bookworm, Hopeless Romantic, and Friendly.

TS3 2016-12-13 09-26-57-64

The party is overshadowed by Lefty trying to kill Fig over that piece of cake.

Fig:  No, I’m starving, Lefty.  You can’t have it!

TS3 2016-12-13 09-31-58-70

We interrupt this party for graduation.

TS3 2016-12-13 09-33-27-43

It’s a big bummer that Radish is not graduating today, but we still have to do his portrait anyway.  Lemon and Banana head inside and the family trails behind.

TS3 2016-12-13 09-38-17-71

TS3 2016-12-13 09-37-47-23 TS3 2016-12-13 09-37-52-60

I didn’t expect a Valedictorian especially Lemon, who is probably going to prison for arson.

TS3 2017-02-11 11-26-57-55

Daffodil tells a ghost story while the boys (Turnip and Eggplant) play with their IFs.

TS3 2017-02-11 11-27-21-99

Last minute conversations between Lemon and Banana.

TS3 2017-02-11 11-30-00-68

Orchid gets Radishes’ portrait painted.

TS3 2017-02-11 11-45-39-27

If you recall, Radish had a romantic interest from prom.  Jeremiah was invited over for a date.

Fun fact:  Jeremiah’s grandmother is Keely Tart-Mist, who was saved a few months back and then got married to Tucker Small from my new ISBI.

TS3 2017-02-11 11-47-17-31

TS3 2017-02-11 12-05-25-95

The date goes very, very well and they end up in bed together.  Orchid made them change the sheets afterward.

TS3 2017-02-11 11-49-29-04

TS3 2017-02-11 11-50-32-86

While the date was going on, Turnip and Eggplant were having birthdays that I had no clue were going to happen.

TS3 2017-02-11 11-50-52-98

TS3 2017-02-11 11-51-49-28

Eggplant is pretty cute, but Turnip got that goddamn nose.

TS3 2017-02-11 11-59-39-41

Young wanted to retire, so I let him.

TS3 2017-02-11 12-10-05-52

TS3 2017-02-11 12-10-42-63

I’m not sure which set of teens this is, but a lot of learning to drive happens this week.

TS3 2017-02-11 12-20-27-14

Aww, no!

TS3 2017-02-11 12-25-50-38

Fig asks Orchid to teach her to drive next.

TS3 2017-02-11 12-32-36-40

TS3 2017-02-11 12-33-21-97

Banana heads over to her girlfriend, Sherri’s, house and proposes.

Fun fact #2:  Keely is Sherri’s mother, making Sherri the aunt of Jeremiah.

TS3 2017-02-11 12-35-16-41

The two get married and Banana moves in with Sherri.

TS3 2017-02-11 12-37-26-79

Radish has his graduation while Banana is getting married.

TS3 2017-02-11 12-37-38-37

We find out that Jeremiah is graduating at the same time!

TS3 2017-02-11 12-38-03-56

Photobombed by Olive.  Thanks.

TS3 2017-02-11 12-38-39-41

Jeremiah:  I hope it is acceptable that I marry your son today.
Orchid:  Yes, very acceptable!  Then have babies!

TS3 2017-02-11 12-40-21-84

Radish wastes no time and proposes to Jeremiah.

TS3 2017-02-11 12-48-49-77

Passion Fruit:  I think someone is watching me!  Help!

Orchid has a long locked want for a grandchild, so we pop over to check on Passion Fruit’s pregnancy.  She only has the option to be taken to the hospital, meaning she is in labor.  I was excited enough that I meant to have Orchid active, but found out a while later that Eggplant took her to the hospital.  The baby ends up being a girl named Misti.

TS3 2017-02-11 12-49-53-66

At home, Orchid wants to upgrade 10 things.  She has 7 already done.  The washer will be the next unbreakable item.

TS3 2017-02-11 12-54-00-76

It got late, so she had to stop the upgrade to have her cake.

TS3 2017-02-11 12-55-59-28

And she’s adorable.

TS3 2017-02-11 12-57-31-51

Ugh, full moon night.  Orchid wants to retire, so she does.

TS3 2017-02-11 13-25-57-33

Fig heads out to catch a fish for the science center.  She saw the unicorn and tried to get the Adopt 6 strays LTW.  Since, I am trying to trigger the Perfect Garden, we ignored it.

TS3 2017-02-11 13-36-36-79

Oh and Fig is insane.  So, this whackjob painting was created.  I have no clue if I have a painting mod in or not.  I just know that I have never seen this one before ever.

TS3 2017-02-11 14-03-54-21

Fig finally pops The Perfect Garden (she already has 2/8 perfect plants), so she got a greenhouse since all the plants were dormant.  Her section for perfect plants is over behind her.

TS3 2017-02-11 14-12-37-55

The youngest two finally have their birthdays too.  Woo!

TS3 2017-02-11 14-13-08-95 TS3 2017-02-11 14-13-48-87

Unstable.  That one is pretty fun.

TS3 2017-02-11 14-16-37-07

Orchid:  So, do you want to learn to drive before I send you off to military school to join your brother?
Olive:  Who said I wanted to go to military school?
Orchid:  I did.

Orchid seriously sent both Turnip and Olive to military school.  Is it the nose?  Is it their traits?  I don’t know, but she had no wants for the other kids to leave.

TS3 2017-02-11 15-01-32-35

Fig is the only one who has not done their homework that week.  They have had 5 days off in a row: 2 days for graduations, one spooky day, and then the weekend.  After she does that, Young takes her out to drive.

TS3 2017-02-11 15-02-18-48

Eggplant has rolled “More than a Machine” LTW, so he got the robot station and starts researching nanites.

TS3 2017-02-11 17-37-25-97

Gene (married to Passion Fruit)

TS3 2017-02-11 17-39-08-47

Sherri (married to Banana)

TS3 2017-02-11 17-40-46-49

Jeremiah (married to Radish)

TS3 2017-02-11 17-45-22-19

Estevan (engaged to Lemon)

I started working on the family tree and I thought you’d like to see the spouses.  There is a new page linking to it.

TS3 2017-02-11 17-54-17-55

Olive and Daffodil are having a huge pillow fight in Fig’s room.  As the oldest in the house, Fig moved downstairs into Passion Fruit’s old room and painted it pink.

TS3 2017-02-11 19-16-10-59

Random pic of Daffodil being late for school.

TS3 2017-02-11 19-16-38-10

Fig keeps jumping out of the car and not learning the last driving skill point.  Young is not amused that he has to try again.

TS3 2017-02-11 21-07-15-14

They finally have some spare money and the kids are now put to work.  Olive is making potions, Fig is inventing and Eggplant is at the bot station.

TS3 2017-02-11 21-12-31-81

Aww, Lemon got married!

TS3 2017-02-11 22-14-20-50

Radish and Jeremiah had their baby!  It’s an exciting day around here.  OHHH  Misti had her birthday!

TS3 2017-02-11 22-30-33-08

Young is almost ready for the afterlife, so when the free vacation was announced, Orchid decided to accept it and took Young for a reward on a life well-lived.

TS3 2017-02-11 22-31-28-62

There were no teen parties, no cops called.  The kids just went to work and school and came home to skill.

Fig maxes out her gardening.

TS3 2017-02-11 22-43-55-78

Eggplant builds the bots and Fig sells them.  Everyone also died of shock.  Prune is doing something other than leaving inappropriate forum posts!  Omg.

Seriously, she writes 8-10 inappropriate posts a day.

TS3 2017-02-11 22-56-17-53

Daffodil maxes her teen job in journalism.

TS3 2017-02-11 23-09-30-09

Young came home from his vacation and scolds Fig.  I haven’t figured out why though.

TS3 2017-02-11 23-16-52-00

Prom night!  I forgot to get everyone changed, so oops.

TS3 2017-02-11 23-17-21-18

Young has taken up video gaming in his old age.  He got to add a new nerd trait:  Handy.

TS3 2017-02-11 23-17-37-49

Orchid keeps gussying up.  All day long.

Oh dear God.  We will not be torturing Daffodil with this monster.

TS3 2017-02-11 23-25-11-73

But we might steal Eggplants RI Venkat though.  He’s cute.

TS3 2017-02-11 23-25-41-29

Daffodil:  Whoever wins gets Venkat.
Eggplant:  Prepare to die, thief!

TS3 2017-02-11 23-30-09-44

TS3 2017-02-11 23-54-43-42

Holy shit the SwiftGro thing is amazing.  Why have I never used it before?  Her and Young take turns talking to all the plants everyday for several weeks and then started using perfect garlic for fertilizer (best fertilizer in the game according to Carl’s).

TS3 2017-02-11 23-57-25-80

TS3 2017-02-11 23-57-32-46

And there you have it.  She talked them all to perfect and replanted them.

TS3 2017-02-12 00-00-02-16

Eggplant listens to the bot tabcast while researching all the trait chips.  He won’t be creating them though.  He and the family will just buy trait chip bundles until sentience is found.

We will end the update with grandbabies!

TS3 2017-02-12 00-04-37-91

Misty (Passion Fruit and Gene)

TS3 2017-02-12 00-05-50-39

Dylan (Banana and Sherri)

TS3 2017-02-12 00-03-15-75

Denise (Radish and Jeremiah, she got The Nose, but only the upper bridge part that digs into the brain).

TS3 2017-02-12 00-02-00-97

Meredith (Lemon and Estevan, got the full nose).

….nevermind.  I can’t start the next update with crying.

TS3 2017-02-12 01-20-11-55

Young started to feel a bit light and knew what was coming.  He was not happy about it either.

TS3 2017-02-12 01-20-19-39

TS3 2017-02-12 01-20-59-68

Surround by his whole family (except the ones at boarding school), Young bids a tearful farewell.

TS3 2017-02-12 12-23-20-41

Young, father of 10, grandfather of 4.  The best rock star the Simverse has ever seen.  He leaves at age 89, which is the exact length of the age span in game.  He didn’t quite make it to 200,000 happiness points, but he did give it a good try.

RIP Young!  Let’s hope your nose does not live as long as you did.

  1. Aw, bye Young. He was a great spouse, even if he did infect the family with a weird nose.

    I see you’re doing the smart thing and choosing the non-career LTWs for the spares. That should leave plenty of room for the next generation. Not that 8 sims in a house has ever stopped your sims, lol.

    1. I will never forgive him that nose! Ugh. I have seen others keep spares around for tons of age groups, but not me. I want them gone. I think 7 LTW completed in gen 1 was better than could be expected. There definitely won’t be that many kids born this time around.
