Yup, this was my little tribute and tip of the hat to what started this legacy. I leave it up to you folks to figure out her relations to the other Scumthorpes MeghamSmith came up with.


This reminds me of something. The Ptolemy family (who I posted about in the OMG WTF ARE YOU DOING THREAD with the worst fucking full moon ever) were originally Scumthorpes. Or at least, the father was, the others didn't exist. (I renamed them because I'm stupidly neurotic and got worried about stepping on other peoples' toes :P)



...Yup, he's a Scumthorpe alright.

Yeah, I saw that guy and just had to get him in to the story somehow. As he left he did change into a suit(No pic sorry). Not that he looked much better mind. Still like a bear trying to be human.

Then of course there was this guy sitting in the back behind the bookshelves:

I can't argue there. He looks like one, plus he's got the recurring "can't respond appropriately to Announce Pregnancy" problem that's plagued every single member of the dynasty that's been informed of a pregnancy so far.

An idea for how to work new Scumthorpes like this into the (near-incomprehensible) official family tree, by the way: Though I haven't made any myself, Larry and Sid probably have cousins. Most people do, after all. So feel free to make Scumthorpes related to them that way and then run with it- given that Larry's fathered eight children in total and three of them were born at the same time, it's probably safe to say that the family has a genetic tendency to breed like rats and wind up with many, many distant relatives.

Well, I did say that life in the Killjoy household was...unique. For starters, they are so attracted to each other they will spend any time they are in the house together flirting, holding hands and kissing...pretty much like you'd expect newly-weds to do. So much so that I have to make sure they actually eat, wash and go to sleep at something like a normal time. I want to see what this legacy does but I don't want it dying in the first generation from mooning over each other!

Then they do stuff like this:



YOUR SOUL WILL POWER THIS DEMON BOX




EEEEYAGGGGGGGGHHHHHH!!!!!

Oh, and don't think it's one way either.



Mind, obviously the upbringing has tempered Carmella a bit, she looks like she's resigned about the whole thing as she is scared.

They are always scaring each other constantly. What does the adrenaline rush make life together all that more exciting? Or are you two so maladjusted you confuse the flutter of fear with the flutter of love?

......

Don't answer that......

Dinner conversation is also interesting.





So they're discussing the best way to deal with toxic material and she suggests using it in missiles which he apparently approves of. Riiiight.

Oh, and you know how MighamSmith was going on about his kids keep talking aobut jellyfish? Guess what August was discussing with one of the kids at the beech during summer break?



Ya Ya Cthulhu Fhtagn!

Okay fuck it, I'll make him a Scumthorpe again :P. Ptolemy can be the wife's maiden name and I just hope that's not too confusing.

I was planning on keeping this branch of the family all werewolves and was thinking of who to pair the twin girls up with when they're older, and thought Gator.

...I think Gator's had enough of my game autonomously fucking him about without him dating a Scumthorpe too.

Loving the new avatar, Spiritbw!

Also I think I hate myself. I didn't do any actual playing last night, just building. I am not a good builder. I am probably average at best. My houses turn into blocky boring looking horrors, because I either a) lack imagination and a know-how on making houses look realistic and/or b) get fucking bored.

"I know!" I think to myself, "I'll make a Scumthorpe mansion myself! From scratch! No editing bullshit. On a 64x64 lot!"



So far I have the garage, the layout of the house, kitchen, dining area, indoor swimming pool, small lake, tiny garden (I'm not a fan of huge gardens that take literally all day to tend to) and an outdoor play area for the twins.

Just the garage with cars and the fence around the lot alone cost over 500k.
Fuck.

If it's not too late, do not use a foundation! Or at least leave a large area where you can build so you can put stairs to the basement (EA in their infinite stupidity made it incredibly difficult-to-impossible to add stairs to the basement through a foundation). Build the basement ALL FOUR LEVELS using the basement tool, whether you're going to use it right now or not. 62x62! These are Scumthorpes! They need room for secret lairs, secret labs, secret ... stuff! They will need to expand! You can always wall off sections later, or delete parts of the basement to create hallways and areas that are separated on that level but can only be accessed via stairs from above and/or below.

Besides basements are free in edit town. They cost mucho simoleans later. Plus, there's the whole planning-for-stairs thing.

Oh don't worry, I rarely use foundations because I fucking hate how difficult it is to get down into a basement in a house with foundations. The only time I've ever managed it was when I shoved in a lift (I made Sims of the kids from The Binding of Isaac, so it was pretty much essential that they sleep in the basement, but wanted them to have a crappy house too and foundations everywhere D:!). EA seem to manage it fine but have made it incredibly hard on the rest of us.



I'm planning on adding a wine cellar with a wine making machine, although I've no idea who will be using it yet. God knows what else will be shoved in XD.

I never build basements. Probably because I've never had one irl. But then, I've never had foundations irl, but I use them all the time...
My next mission, add a basement to my legacy house! When I can afford to decorate the rest, that is...

I've never had a basement irl either, but I like to build them for wine cellars, secret dungeons and torture rooms...and baby rooms for my asshole Sims. Thanks to a few tips from Mingham I can be a true asshole parent and leave them entirely to their own devices now!

What a coincidence. I haven't gotten to the car part but I have been working on a Scumthorpe mansion myself in perperation for the family expanding. Pictures of stately Killjoy Manor to come....when it's finished.

I got to agree with folks about the frustration of getting stairs through a foundation. Specially spiral stairs which I used for access to what will be the labs and crypts. Build foundation, build walls, remove foundation dig basement, put in stairs, relay the foundation around the stairs. Without the walls I found that the foundation when put around spiral stairs will stay a square away from the stairs themselves. After much experimentation and cursing of EA/Maxis programing I managed to get hidden door, staircase and fireplace into a 2'x6' area.

Uuggghhh spiral staircases piss me the fuck off. I only really use them for basements because if it's going to another storey of the house, say a bunch of Sims going to bed at the same time, mutiple Sims on a spiral staircase just gets on my tits. Tantrums abound. Thanks for the basement foundation tip though!

There's an instant multi-level transporter pad on this site somewhere. I can't find it just now and I have to go cook dinner for the boychild, but I'll try to find it when I get done with that.

It takes up way less room than stairs, I think 4 squares. And they just transport instanteously. You could put a couple in high traffic areas but since it takes 0 time to ascend/descend, there really probably isn't any need to do so.

The thing about these is that NPC's WILL use them. They're 'spensive though, like S-1100 in-game price.

Of course in the course of hunting for them I've come across about 20 pieces of CC that I MUST HAVE! MUST MUST MUST! LOL!

Well, at least Alice didn't seem to mind-


-Wait, is she giving flirty looks to a robot?


...I guess that answers that question.


So Alice was giving flirty looks to a Simbot. Who is considered the "son/daughter" of their creator. Which would technically mean the Killbots are Alice's "nephews".

...Welp, that scene just got even weirder.
