@Amura Oh, so sorry to hear that you lost this rounds Pictures

You noted that your Challenge Score was 176, with Karnnh Dukrarn-Walker being a new hybrid. So how is your challenge going?

Well, I guess it's no big deal, but I feel so silly because I meant to move them to their folder and I deleted them instead. If it was not enough, I decided to permanently delete everything from the bin, which I hardly ever do.
At least this won't damage my game or corrupt my files or anything of that sort XD


The challenge is doing well, I suppose.
I added the whole points thing to try it out. I had never played with points in mind so I wanted to test it, but I don't think it suits my playstyle much. I mean, I write it them down, but other than that I ignore them all the time.
For me the whole point of this challenge was seeing alien genetics playing an important role, so I could have several generations of little green ones. Which as you know does not need any kind of challenge, but that was my excuse :D
The points are a way to limit my interference and not add too many extra aliens (which would make the points count drop) but I had no need at all so far. In fact I have plenty of green skinned residents

@Amura I am glad that your game is going well.

I love to see how the Alien Genetics work in my game as well.

I limit how many extra Aliens I might add by thinking of how much work it was when I added several recently. Acckk, I don't plan to do it again anytime soon.

Hehe, my population is usually quite limited, I don't like huge hoods - because rotations take too long - so I don't think I'm ever adding MANY aliens (or any other Sims for the case) at a time.
A household, yes, that might be. But not more.

Oh, a Bigfoot! I do love them. Especially when they bring gifts home!

Poor Callista, she really looked reluctant to go! That's how I'll be.

I've never used romancemod- I'll have to try it out. It sounds like it could be useful and make things work a little differently to the EA default.

Roger and J'Kepp Walker certainly have a full house- good job they are managing!

Great updates @Amura I enjoyed reading as usual!

Bigfoot brings gifts home? Like what? Huge stones? XD
My very first time playing one, so I don't really know much about them, and I don't think I'm falling in love with them...
I have a similar feeling with the servos, they are too "easy" in some weird sense.

Romancemod is great, I've tried some mods that removed the whole jealousy aspect and they were a bit more boring, but this one is kinda neat.

Roger and J'Kepp indeed have a full house, although none of them actually wanted a large family - the twins were an accident (aka abduction) and Jess and James were born to please the grandparents. Who are the ones paying the bills anyway :D

I've just finished another rotation, I hope to post about it soon!

Btw @simsample, I've just seen your Bluehaven hood - it's really beautiful.
Wanted to ask: is it a populated hood or an empty one?

I have played a couple of Families with a Bigfoot in them and Bigfoot frequently brings something home.

I like to have a Bigfoot in one of my Sim's Family every so often. Me I love Servos especially after I learned to turn them into human looking Androids, though I limit how many I have in the game. There is a mod that changes how many Skills Bigfoot has, you might like that better.

Edit: Oh and I am looking forward to your post on your most recent rotation @Amura

Oh, that mod sounds like a great idea. It's not here at MTS, right? Didn't find it... Got a link by any chance?
I might in fact edit this current bigfoot so he has lower skill levels, he's just too perfect to be true :D

Good. I might - eventually - give it a try, it is so beautiful and I lack the time to build and design hoods right now.

Is it still under testing? Or have you uploaded a final version somewhere?

Well, my daughter and I have both played it extensively, and others have reported to me that they haven't found anything wrong with it, but I've been too lazy/busy/distracted to upload it properly.

Default Rotation #08d
Okay, here I go with the rotation summary.

Vradia Zadra finally bought a house.
He does not like loneliness and - as expected - asked his son Arvian to move in with him.

Having Arvian around is nice, but still he feels so lonely sometimes.
He met Sophie Walker, his former door-to-door neighbour, also a widow. And, well, feelings that did not expected appeared all of a sudden.

On the other hand Arvian is a flirt and never minds about dating a girl... or two.
He was out at night. In the club he met Kay and gave her a friendly kiss or two, then he went ahead and flirted with LaShawn (who met in a blind date Kay had set up in the previous rotation). Had a great time, although some of the guys around thought he was nuts XD


Rivia is Vradia's second child. And has just made him a grandparent!
Little Daniella Lowe was just born - and she looks absolutely human. Looking forward seeing her grow up, wondering if she'll be as beautiful as her mom.

Also Derrick (Rivia's husband, Daniella's father) has just grown up.
Now that he's an elder and a father, will he finally get serious and stop flirting every time he has a chance?


More babies were born!
One of them was Lack Walker, first daughter of Christian (hence Sophie's grandchild) and Klaav (hence Lorna's and Vaklin's grandchild).


Christian's twin Marjorie also gave birth in this rotation, first girl after giving birth to three boys.
She has alien features (yay!) because her father is a pure breed alien.

This family has double celebration because Karnnh just became a toddler, and the entire Walker family was invited to celebrate.


Roger Walker and his wife J'Kepp also have a toddler and threw a birthday party - little James is such a cutie!


In the meantime Eleanor Walker keeps meeting men, befriending them and eventually seducing them. Her social life is so intense!


Let's see what the younger ones are at.
In college Prid White-Entayta is enjoying her time indeed, lately she's been dating Professor Christopher.


Kliive Gorge just moved into college (haven't been played yet so no pics), and will be Prid's roommate.
Kliive is Vilkaa's son (and also late James Walker's, although this is not public) but he's grown up in as one more of the Entayta-Gorge children.
Prod Entayta was not the most caring of parents but he was not unkind either, and they all will miss him now that he's gone.
After Prod's death and Kliive leaving for college, the family apartment seems kinda empty... specially because Disarp and Vrodde are mostly busy with adolescent love
Disarp is in love with Jappung Daeli-Jobs (daughter of J'Kepp).

And Vrodde developed feelings for Aryana Baker.


And this all about the sentimental life of my Sims.
I'll just finish with a picture of a burglar stealing Haern Dukrarn's car! Damn!

No wonder, it must be a lot of work uploading such a huge work.
I mean, I'm too lazy to even upload a single building, a whole hood seems soooo much!

Thanks, I'll be downloading it right away.

Great Post. I noticed that you had some births and some birthday parties, cool.

Lots of Aliens and a new Alien baby, quite cool. I love the pictures they were great.

Looking forward to the next rotation.

Yeah, I like having birthday parties and invite the whole family - so I make sure the kids know their grandparents and other relatives.
But lately I'm having quite "bad" parties because the kid grows up automatically - not using the cake - and that does not count towards being a "birthday party"



Yeah, one little green one.
Not much luck with the next generation, though, so far my hybrids tend to have human offspring.

A Human and a Hybrid would have a 50% chance I think of having a baby with Alien Skin. With a separate 50% chance of Alien Eyes.

For Birthday Parties, you sort of have to keep track of when they age up. Simlogical has an object mod that is called "Days Left" it is a shrub that displays how many days are left for Sims and Pets, very handy it is.

I always keep an eye on "days left".
I think that sort of object is useful if you want to know about elders (which I don't), everyone else you can just check in their bars.

My problem is that I don't want to grow them up before 18:00 (because at that our the counter will move, as if they had lived a full day, and de-sync my game) but after that hour you must direct them quickly to the bday cake, or they might simply grow up on their own.
I'm trying to throw parties for their bdays (specially the little ones, so they meet their relatives) and they are all growing up before they go to the cake, hence having awful parties.
I guess my micro-managing skills are rusty XD



Yep, I know about the chance...
In my game human+hybrid couples had 4 babies. All of them absolutely human.
Such an streak of human skin has only a 6'25% chance! (50% four times), same goes for eyes, and having both combined goes down to about 4%.
Not impossible, but damn it, bad luck.

Good thing is that the hybrid+hybrid couples have a higher chance of alien babies, and I already have one (Ray & Vivian).
Also the Entayta Gorge kids are both pure alien, since both their parents were, and there is a chance that J'Kepp twins from abduction also are pure alien (I could check but I prefer being surprised).
