GUYS. ITS TIME. ITS CEDRIC TIME.
Catarina: Let me just get out of the water first.
Cédric: *le gasp* Catarina! You’re much prettier than I remember!
CÉDRIC YOUR HAIR. YOU SHAVED YOUR HAIR
Catarina: Heh…I wish I could say the same about you…eh…
ITS OKAY. DON’T PANIC. WE’LL GIVE HIM A MAKEOVER IN DUE TIME
Catarina: Very important question. Have you had kids with Darlène yet?
Cédric: Not yet. Story Progression won’t let us unless we live in the same house and all the houses are taken.
Catarina: Yeeesss that would’ve been complicated!
Catarina: Aw gee I’m feeling all flustered now. You better be worth the trouble. Went through 9 other sims you know!
Cédric: Are you saying…
Catarina: I’m saying Darlène isn’t right for you. She was originally supposed to be with Charlie anyway. She’s pretty but she’s not your type. Nope. You should break up with her. Mhm.
Cédric: Well I was planning on breaking up with her anyways. I only went out with her because the girl I liked was with some other guy. And story progression refused to let me stay single.
Catarina: MOVE IN WITH ME
He didn’t protest much
Cédric: I can understand the need to be in my presence.
And now I gave him a makeover!
This is how I always viewed Cédric in my head.
Let’s all ignore that Cédric is a James spawn, which means that Cédric is Diana’s half-brother
He’s: Neurotic, Loves nature, Drama queen, Friendly and Computer whiz
Cédric: TORO TORO!
Cédric: The lollipop calls for you…
He’s already meeting the members of the household.
Brittney: IM DONE *steps on dirty clothes and leaves*
Really Britt? Really? You had one job, and it was not to make me lose points.
Finally a pillow fight where Catarina actually looks like she’s having fun.
Catarina: Did I hit you too hard? Does it hurt?
Cédric: No no, I think I lost a tooth, just let me find it first.
I feel like we missed something here Cat.
Catarina: Tell me about it.
Bunny: I’m stuck ;-; the puddle scares me
Cédric: He’s blocking my way so I will stand here awesomely with only my top hat and undies on because that’s what you do when you’re in a pinch.
Turns out Cédric is in Law Enforcement just like Bunny and this is their work outfits.
Law Enforcement is serious business guys.
Cédric: There’s a wall and laundry basket in my way! This isn’t going to work!
Cédric: I summon thee carriage of justice with my raggedy umbrella! *waves around*
Mailbox: I’m not looking for a relationship right now. I’m a little grumpy because NOBODY PICKS UP MY STUFF. And all YOU do is add to it! I’m trying to lost weight here ;-;
*turns around for five seconds*
Firefox: I gave birth.
So yes, two puppies were born 😀
Uh, the right one is Lucky Fox, he’s gonna grow up soon eventually.
The left one is a girl whom I decided to name Helifire, because at the time her ears looked like a helicopter to me and I wanted to add fire in there.
And now it’s like I named her after a demon.
And the final puppy is a little boy who downright looks like a panda to me. I named him Lanoch because that’s part of his scientific name (Ailuropoda melanoleuca) and ch cause I thought it ended the word nicely and was the beginning of Charms.
I put a lot of work into naming these puppies you know.
When you go into town these three tend to gather…
Boo: I has a cane now.
Sam: CANE PARTY
Better have it happen now….i guess…
You’ll need to make up for these lost points by having a baby with Cat.
Diella: I tried to be normal so I grabbed this no name kid from the back of the class and told it to come with me.
That hair…those eyebrows…those eyes…don’t tell me!
Lindsay: Hi, I’m Charlie’s kid and my hair is full of knots.
You’re that hotdog kid that came for Halloween too!
Guess I can do you a little favor, and give you a new hairdo or something. You’ve really got your dad’s expressions.
There a new hairdo. Brushed it and all.
Can’t do much for your facial expression though.
Diella: Yes. I may have dragged her home, doesn’t mean I want her to come INSIDE. Geez.
THEYRE EVERYWHERE SUCH CUTENESS
Remembering the names I gave them is hard though…I’m really excited for when Lucky Fox grows up.
Lucky: IM ALL ALONE IN THE UNIVERSE
Carebear: DAD WONT LET ME CHEW THE COUCH
Firefox: SOMEBODY MAKE THEM SHUT UP
Diella: I love my home.
Catarina: Don’t need to sound so monotone dear.
Diella: You’re halfway in the wall right now mom.
Sooo decided to stay at school?
Daniel: Me and my imaginary friend highly prefer this environment.
Diella: The cross-eyed sleeping technique!
Points for originality
Catarina: THE SADNESS
Okay what’s going on?
Catarina: Carebear got no attention! This is so sad!
Whadda ya mean? He’s got a huge dog family!
Social Dog worker: So dog negligence eh?
calls upon the mighty powers of second chances
Hmm? Did you hear anything? I didn’t hear anything.
What about you Coco? *mouse hovering over Coco*
Coco: *shakes head*
Yeah, mhm. There was never any social worker. My bad for assuming 7 dogs could entertain themselves.
Bunny : AWW WHY DID WE LOSE LUCKY
SHUT UP IT NEVER HAPPENED.
Brittney: I’M GETTING REALLY TIRED OF THIS. I live in the nursery. Please end my suffering.
Diella: Did you hear that thing? You’re making everyone suffer.
I thought it was about time to do the laundry.
Didn’t expect Cat to throw it outside.
Do you have a thing with melding with objects today?
Catarina: It’s called deepening the bond.
And boy this place is a damn mess.
So much that I’m actually kind of desperate to the point of taking this thing out.
DO YOUR JOB WELL.
Panpard: I do believe the elder master is tired.
Diella: OUCH AWKWARD
Bunny: Why are you following me voice?
Cause you got a pass out action and I need to take a pic to prove it, so just pass out already so I can do something else.
3: YO PEACE MAN. I grew up.
IT GREW UP. CUTE.
I seriously thought, for real, that she was pissed at the gnome until I saw exactly where she was looking, and well I proceeded to have the same face.
Bunny: THIS ISNT WHAT I THOUGHT ITD BE LIKE
A quick reminder, the damn sim is a hydrophobic.
AND HES SWIMMING. WITH THE ACTION TO PASS OUT. T^T
Diella: I would like to jump as well, but you are IN the way.
And then Bunny climbed out, Diella jumped in, realized she was tired and suddenly drowning, went to exit pool BUT HEY WHOS THAT
Bunny: I’m just gunna stand here like a proud dumb asshole!
Diella: My frail arms can’t climb out of this pool!!
Diella: HES BLOCKING MY WAY, IM GOING TO DROWN.
OH MY GOD PLEASE DON’T. IM NOT KIDDING, DON’T.
HERE, HERE TAKE IT. *adds another stairwell*
Bunny: Nope, I was right the first time, the pool is not fun.
GO AWAY HYDROPHOBIC
NO NO NO NO NO
Diella: Goodbye cruel world! *freaking holy shit dies*
BUNNY. BUNNY REALLY? NOW YOU’RE PASSING OUT? *intense need to strangle*
COCO NEEDS FOOD BUNNY. COCO IS REALLY HUNGRY.
NO PLEASE REAPER.
Have pity! Take that guy!
Bunny: Ah geez, I’m tired of hearing you scream.
*attempts to strangle*
Diella: I am deformed in death. Why.
Reaper: Reaping a kid never looks good on my resume. People might mistake you for an adult now.
Diella: WAIT IM DYING. Why didn’t you save me?
IM SORRY I TRIED. I’ll avenge you I swear!
Bunny: I’m so sad! My great grand daughter died!
BECAUSE OF YOU
Bunny: Because of an unfortunate accident!
How to properly kill you?
I really wanted to kill him, but he kept running away, but I mean literally. See that action on at the top? That is literally the ‘run away’ action. Prob brunehilde’s fault
And everyone is in the red.
AND I AM JUST SO PISSED RIGHT NOW.
Thanks Rham. I needed that.
YOU ARE GOING TO SUFFER A DEATH LIKE NO OTHER
After much thinking, I finally came up with a solution, because I loved Diella and I need her as a heir.
Catarina: Ha, I knew her death wasn’t real.
Catarina: MY DAUGHTER DIED SAVE HER PLEASE
Genie: ….yeah sure why not.
Diella: I was called? HOLY DAMN GUYS. I die and you think about the THING, really????
DIELLA IS BACK YAY!
HIP HIP HOURRAY!
Catarina: Can I haz cash now?
Genie: Hell naw, I’m exhausted yo. Call me some other time.
Okay then genie.
Diana: STARVING TO DEATH HOLA
Genie: OH GOD THE NOISE. HURRY PUT ME BACK IN THE LAMP
Catarina: I have this urge to get married. Where’s Cédric? Really need to get that relationship moving, we haven’t even kissed yet.
Diella: I come back to life and this is what I get? Thanks. Really.
Diella: Ugh did she gain a new pair of lungs?
What if you imagined she was crying for your death?
Diella: Are you kidding? We’re mortal enemies. She probably rejoiced. THOSE ARE SCREAMS OF JOY.
To be honest kid, I really didn’t mean for you to die.
It’s all Bunny’s fault, so tell me how you want him to die and it’ll happen.
Diella: Really now? I might just start to like you voice. I’ll keep you updated.
Please decide soon, the mere sight of him destroys my eyes.
So you just going to stand there all day? What about the clothes on the floor…hmm?
Brunehilde: Excuse me? Does it look like I have the muscles to lift something that heavy? Please.
Diana: Why was I not brought to watch her death? WHY?
3: *got kicked* leave me alone NOBODY LIKES ME, oh my god I could’ve drowned in that pool like Diella. NOBODY UNDERSTANDS
3: YOU KNOW MY DAD DIED RIGHT?
Brittney: You horrible kid! How dare you not go to school!? I look forwards to week days YOU KNOW!
Daniel: But grandma you don’t understand! We’re stuck in mom’s room!
Daniel: We’re stuck in here. FOREVER.
You’re being a little dramatic here Daniel.
Brittney: Eh gaw Diana is yelling again.
It’s a slow climb back to normality folks.
Rham: Oh no! Not rotten sushi! *faints*
Brunehilde: I like watching dogs starve.
Lucky Charms: What is this? No food and walking bones? WHAT TORTURE
Okay, you’re done Brunehilde. You’re as useless as the first time I bought you.
Daniel: Oh sweet lake take me away…
Brittney: I miss my old painting days ;-;
Brunehilde: Now don’t forget to clean that up!
Why are you not gone yet?
Rham: I’m next again aren’t I?
Daniel: Hello smell cloud, you’re tired as well? LET US PASS OUT TOGETHER
Firefox: TRY IT AND I CHEW YOU TO PIECES
Oh my god, nobody is happy, everyone is in the red, and this is just stalling putting you and Cat together and just ARG.
Cédric: Um…I’m sorry? Maybe moving in was too much for this household.
No, no! It’s okay, it’s okay. This just means we need to relocate to another town so I can bask in the glory of a one hour no lagging. And I was planning on it anyway since the town isn’t big enough to hold everyone and more. (I just thought it’d be for the next generation) (oh and I’m bringing all the townies along) (how? Shoving them all in one household and saving that household to the bin) (oh the things I do for the sims)
THE RED PORTRAIT PANEL OF DOOM
Who is that? BOO OF ALL PEOPLE. An eternal source of bugginess. Couldn’t get all the townies in one lot cause apparently he was taking enough space for about 24 sims. So I mercilessly and without any hesitation whatsoever destroyed him.
Anyway, I decided to move them to good old Sunset Valley.
WELCOME TOWNIES, SPREAD OUT AND PROCREATE.
Good to see you’re fitting in Brandon!
Okay that was bad sorry.
Brandon: >.> *can’t breathe*
Chance: I THINK I NEED GLASSES
So welcome to Sunset hole valley my main household. You’ll be glad to hear that the game has yet to crash, though playtime hasn’t even started yet and-
OH MY GOD
INDEED PEOPLE. INDEED.
That is not blood splatter from Rham stabbing Bunny in the back –
Rham: I’d never do that!
Those are actual fairy wings. Holy shit. We’ve moved four times and NOW he resets? SEE I WAS RIGHT BUNNY.
Bunny: I don’t know what you’re talking about. I can’t see them so they aren’t there.
Ah there you guys are!
Diella: Of all people to be with!
Diana: What’s wrong big sis? You afraid of a wittle toddler?
Diella: D:< I refuse to look at you.
Game: WOAH WOAH NOW, No intense scrolling woah calm down *crash*
IM SORRY, just wanted to check up on EVERYONE geez.
So yeah it crashed and when I loaded it back up…
Bunny’s wings changed color
Bunny: See? Never had red wings.
Now a warning, my sims or graphics in general may start to look a little lacking. I changed my graphics settings to prefer Performance over Quality cause that’s what’s making my game crash all the time.
Of course if it doesn’t work, I’ll just switch back.
I think this picture speaks for itself.
First autonomous action while everybody stands around! By the toddler of all people.
Diana: Finally my needs are high enough to play.
Diella: She beat me to the punch I have to do better!
Lanoch: …im lost…
Im gonna have to get used to these graphics
Okay so the move wiped Cat’s lifetime wish. Just when I’m about to get these two together.
And NO I’m not restarting. You guys are my witnesses that I have indeed done 9/10 and almost 10/10!
Well now it’s officially supposed to be 10/10…
And there’s a lineup to feed the dogs.
Diella: AHA doing homework. That’s way better.
Daniel: I’m just not going to move. Because in the end I NEVER WANTED TO MOVE.
You’ll get over it eventually I’m sure.
Good to see the sushi survived.
So anyway! I got off track, but basically my solution to her lack of Lifetime Wish fulfillement is cheating. Always cheating. I changed it to like getting top of the doctor career, then gave her the top doctor career, fulfilled lifetime wish, and then made her quit.
At least there are cheats.
Catarina: It’s been a long road to get here-
Yeah tell me about it
Catarina: And I’m dooming you to a life of insanity, but marry me?
Cédric: Are you kidding me!? The fact that both of our names begin with C means we were destined for each other Cat!
Rham: Something’s happening and I DON’T LIKE IT
Cédric: I’m just this awesome.
I wouldn’t look so proud if I were you, I don’t think you quite understand what you’ve gotten yourself into.
Rham: Oh no! Cat got married! How was I not made aware of this!
I’m surprised you actually are aware!
Brittney: I made that painting over there.
Bunny: I’m just going to wait here for the dogs to empty this bowl just so I can fill it again. 😀 such fun!
Catarina&Cédric: Haha tickle tickle newlyweds special interaction!
Daniel: …I don’t understand what’s going on here.
It’s okay kiddo.
Brittney: I have this need to have a grandchild now. I don’t know what’s come over me.
Diella: Grandpa, I need to pee!
Rham: Hey, didn’t you die?
Llama: HI. Oh yes me, right here, not the sim I took hostage. I don’t get enough credit for my mind control abilities. ITS ALL ME. IM THE ONE BEHIND IT ALL!
Well there’s one more basket for my collection!
Brittney: Thinking about more grandchildren scared the pee out of me D:
Daniel: Eh I need to pee too. When’s Diella coming out?
Daniel: SHOOT THEN
I WONT LET THIS AFFECT ME. Nope.
On another note, the low graphics make Brittney’s face look like some sort of mutated animal…I’m not sure…
Ew on the floor
But baby making!
Last kiddo! Cause Cat’s wish to have a boy got deleted so if she gets a girl all is still good!
You know what? Baby assured? Imma end it right here.
Sooo, graphics annoy me to be honest, I’m a stickler for details and since the game hasn’t crashed…you’ll probably see an improvement in graphics next chapter >.> (I just can’t live without maximum quality, but apparently I can live with crashes)
Also, I played sims 4 and have a lot to say it would seem:
There was a whole two day free thing on Origin and I thought I’d give it a try. It was fun at first, had a nice smooth feel to it and everything depended on moods and such and the loading times were really great. Building mode was definitely awesome, and seeing the sims multi-task was like seeing a miracle happen. They kept surprising me by doing several things at once, and getting these moodlets for different things. Nothing needed to render either, and it never crashed once! And I think my favorite part is how many achievements and goals you could fulfill for every life stage.
But I rarely left the house because I didn’t want to have a loading screen everytime. Only twenty minutes were spent in CAS because I couldn’t make custom styles and colors. Babies were downright boring and ALWAYS without a fail immediately aged up. I had to actually search up on the web how to do a few interactions (i.e.: reading a book to a child). The lack of general things in the build section made me very sad. A bunch of stuff was locked and needed to be unlocked through careering. No toddlers (‘nough said. Missing the cutie pies there). No automatic paper boy (what can I say, I liked seeing the circle of newspaper doom). The lack of individual game saves, all your families in one save only. Having to click ‘open’ on the fridge to see the leftovers (that really annoyed me). No child/teen pranks (only the mischievous sims can do these). And well much more, but this is what I got on the top of my mind.
And on top of that 3 hours in the game I started thinking up all the different things I wanted to do with sims 3, AND WELL HOLY SHIT TWO PARAGRAPHS. BASICALLY, I prefer Sims 3 over Sims 4 and have high hopes for Sims 5.
Of course after praising sims 3, I come back to it and it fucking crashes on me
Oh my god and camera mode was lacking in sims 4
Oh and damn pausing doesn’t work very well in sims 4, you’ll pause it when they’re picking up a plate and they’ll stop moving only once they’ve sat down.
