Life's been a bit of a rollercoaster ride for Cassandra Goth in my game. Ever since she grew up and left home, she's been bouncing from one thing to another. Homes, jobs, relationships. But nothing's ever really stuck. If I started assigning ages to my sims, I'd say she's in her early 30s at this point in her life, and all she has to show for it are a failed engagement to Don Lothario (surprise, surprise), a dead boyfriend (Who she really wasn't very compatible with anyway. Pretty sure they were only together for so long for the sake of their son), and, admittedly, two great kids and the nicest condo in San Myshuno.

So she's had some ups and downs. Some were deliberate choices on my part (her breakup with Don and the child they had together). Some were REALLY unplanned, but welcome, additions (The second child. The death of boyfriend #2. Her constantly switching professions because I'm so damn indecisive). But today, it's time to finally give her some stability.

For a while, she's been dating this sim that I made a while back (whose name escapes me at the moment). He had lost his wife not long after I created their household (another unintentional disaster that I couldn't really bring myself to undo).

Like Cassandra, he's raising two sons on his own (twins, at that) and he's also done a lot of jumping from career to career (until the most recent patch, where I settled on freelance programmer for him). The two were pretty much made for each other and he clicked with her more than any of her other love interests. So it's time for them to take their relationship to the next level.



Upon sharing the news with his sons, the reactions definitely reflected the overall opposite personalities of both boys. One of them, Liam, was pretty cool with it, even happy for his Dad. He and Cassandra got along well enough anyway. This just felt like a natural next step for him. The only thing he worried about is where they'd find room for Cassandra's two sons.


Theeeeeen there's Tucker. Another unintentional thorn. Ever since Cassandra and his dad started dating (way back when he was VERY early in the child stage), he has NOT liked her.


Naturally, on the day his dad proposed to her, he'd spend the whole day in a "very tense" mood. So, rather than celebrate with the rest of the family, I've been having him off on his own, doing things that he likes to do to help him de-stress...it's not working and he's getting on my nerves now lol. I started to wonder why he's been so dead set against his father dating Cassandra Goth...then I remembered what he has sitting RIGHT next to his computer desk...

Cassandra Goth married one of my sims too! She married Kjeld Nielsen and they have two kiddos together, Max and Kirsten.

I aged up Landen Clarke (Gage X Amelia) to teen and he turned out better than I expected. He's pretty handsome.



In game:


I also aged up Cameron, (Axel x Audrey) to teen and he turned out every bit as handsome as I expected. Well, his parents were gorgeous. (Both born in game) Can't wait to play Cameron in his own household.



In game: (SHOULD WORK NOW?)


Cameron is close to having his first girlfriend and his cousin Sybil has a boyfriend, a teen sim townie I 'made over' a long time ago and wanted to play...

Oh hey: you can look at Cameron's parents (as teens) and his grandpa over here: https://imgur.com/a/YxflDLX
I guess that I made that when I aged him up in cas the first time

EDIT: It occurs to me that Landen and Cameron are related to each other too. Landen's dad is Gage, and his half sister Audrey, is Cameron's mom. They share Claire Woodward as a grandparent.

My first post here! I think I have a decent story even if it doesn't pan out well. Also I'm not a good writer... also crappy pics.

After inheriting his grandmother's old home Noah Lunsford finds it's worth investing in a roommate for a little extra security with all these new weirdies walking around town. Noah isn't completely oblivious to strange chain of events in occuring in Strangerville but for now he's chosen to just blame it on the heat. After a short search and a general lack of interest, Noah settles for the lone roommate applicant, Sachin Sen. So far, Sen has turned out to be a huge skeptic with a critical eye and questionable interest in the town of Strangerville. He's obviously new to the environment and a little odd as far as social nuances go but Noah sees Sen's potential for keeping the weirdies at bay! Perhaps they can even become friends once Noah gets past that cold exterior and who knows, maybe then Noah can finally share some of his own little quirks, like how he's absolutely obsessed with space and aliens

I decided to do the runaway teen challenge but instead of creating a new teen, I just took my favorite sim, rolled him back to teen, twinned him, and used the twin (because the twin has no skills, no memories, no stats)

I didn't want to create more sims because it's kind of an addiction so I give townies makeovers now to feed my creative cravings

Anyway



This is Sterling Woodward, the teen, but since he's a runaway he looks a little rough, underweight and sickly. He also goes by his middle name, Sebastian, rather than Sterling, so people can't identify him as easily.

Because the challenge is next to impossible food-wise, I've had to kind of make my own rules. There are no harvestables for him to eat in the season I started in (Spring). There were no BBQ foods in neighborhoods, so since he has the klepto trait (for now) I had him 'steal' food from food vendors (Grabbing the food before the sim buying it), stealing from fridges in the gym, and any other theft. But now he's got his garden going and lots of harvestables, so I'm trying to follow the rules a little more. He can only eat what he grows and catches- fried fish on the fire pit. He's definitely just trying to survive. He also has the paranoid trait but when he ages up I'll change it to (INSANE) erratic to show his paranoia has evolved into something more.

He also adopted himself a stray dog.

He is dating Luna ... I will have him go through something no sim to this date has... a break up! He won't marry her. He'll be with her until late adulthood and then they'll break up. Seriously I've only had one divorce in my game and zero break ups. I'm too benevolent. lol

After he's close to aging to ADULT, I'll move him in as "Butler" (I will play him and not the family) and he'll continue his story there.

This is an alternate save file, so it's an alternate reality for Sterling, a different life and different time line. Guys. This safe file took 3 seconds to save. THREE SECONDS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

(So much creativity here! Thank you each and all for sharing and updating your stories!)

I moved one of my CAS families ( the Sizemores; widowed grandfather (Marcel), adult son (Bently) and his 3 children (triplet daughters) and adult single parent daughter (Clare) into a home I built for them in Newcrest. After Clare's toddler, Suzie. began elementary school Clare ( who had joined the military) was transfered to StrangerVille.

Seeing no need to rush solving the mystery Clare took a long time to at last get in there and take care of the problem. Her being lazy and hot headed made things a bit interesting. (Clare joined the military because the uniforms were 'cute' and it made her feel a bit special. Not the best career for a lazy Sim! She gave it up after being offered a spy type job. A job that also makes her feel a bit special.)

Clare became a Garden Gnomes Club member with the idea of hosting meetings at her home. Clever way for a lazy Sim to get others to do her gardening! And then she recruited 2 of the members along with the fella living under the crashed airplane to help with ending the infection menace.

Along the way I enjoyed seeing her daughter Suzie grow up. Clare came from a close Family whose members often visit back and forth. While suzie was a child her mother did not worry about her as children and teens appear to be immune. However, some time after Suzie became a a teen her mother decided that Suzie would be safer living with her Uncle and cousins.

Clare is now the hero of Stangetown sharing her home with another elder lady. To continue my story I've moved my young adult CAS Sim, Patricia, into Strangerville. She just so happens to be a freelance botanist with a keen interest in the strange plants that once infected many of the towns folk. Snooping around in the abandoned secret lab she found a few mysterious seed packets.

Patricia, after talking with many of the StrangerVille Sims, is now even more determined to get past that locked door in the Secret Lab. (She has become friends with Town Hero, Clare Sizemore as well as with a few of the Conspiracy Theorists)

I've got to ask, does or did your hero lady get rotten fish and rotten muffins in the mail from "fans" as a thank you for her heroism? Could she ever tell other sims that she saved them without them up and leaving the conversation? Because I'm wondering if there's a bug in my game, or if that happens to everyone. (Those Strangeville sims, so ungrateful - save yourselves next time. XP)

Sterling aka Sebastian is doing pretty well. He's now got enough harvestables that he's able to be independent. But that didnt stop him from stealing the burger from a vendor at the Geek Con.



He also had enough money to build a small shelter. It's big enough for bed, wall book shelf, sink, toilet, (they are not in a separate room, but rather in one room), that floor mattress 'chair', and a derelict TV that he can't even watch because = no electricity.

He spends most of his time with his best pal and companion, Potsie, the chesapeake bay retriever. He also enjoys outings with his girlfriend Luna and considers himself lucky considering where he comes from. He's living in a shack, on the lam, in a secluded area of Brindleton Bay, while she lives in a big house on the Island of Windenburg. His reputation is shady because he's been caught stealing, but he's working on getting better at it.

Eventually I'll use reward traits to rid him of his kleptomania and make him probably 'neat', for his new position as a future butler. I mean, people grow up. People can change.

Oh. I actually like the grungy look of Sebastian's little shack. TS4 needs more of that when everything we have so far is so bright and colorful, it's almost vomit inducing. One of the reasons I miss TS3's aesthetics.

Oh I hear you! I love grunge stuff in the sims! That's why I was so happy for some of the grunge in the Vampires pack (cracks in walls, holes in walls, cobwebs), even though I hate vampires. And I was thrilled with some of the grungy looking stuff in Strangerville. But yes! More grunge!!

Speaking of Sterling (Sebastian)

He's been on his own and doing really well, for a while now. He's put on a healthy amount of weight now that he's eating properly and working out a bit. He's still slim, but he's not so gaunt anymore. He even sprouted a little more chest hair! He's got plenty of harvestables and fish to keep him going. He's struggling to be responsible, since he doesn't go to school. When he fell into the irresponsible trait, his relationship with his girlfriend actually suffered! Even though Sterling is a petty thief, he's restored his reputation to neutral. He's not a bad kid, he's just trying to survive out there in a hard life.

He did suffer a bit of a set back. He came down with llama flu for 3 days (Slice of Life) and just couldn't shake it. Spent most of the time sleeping and relaxing in general. But he's back on his feet again and trying to better himself.


He wish his dog would stop drinking from the toilet. He can't flush it without running water and it's not exactly clean...

Yeah I gotta put Explore in my game. I don't think he can really go to the doctors though, he's not supposed to talk to adults.

Was a little too stunned to remember to screenshot this unfortunately (pretty sure I could have gotten at least one funny pic out of it), but, well... just got Seasons and had my little sim family go through the X-mas celebration. All in all surprisingly fun, though I had a bit of difficulty figuring out the decorating bit, but anyways, pretty much a nice time and a success for the simmies. Then Father Christmas shows up - naked. Pretty sure the game has something like four different outfits to chance between, but no, this guy - Clement - is naked. I had my sims quickly greet, chat and say goodbye to him, thinking I'd get the streaking old guy out of the house (kind of gives the family holiday and odd vibe, you know?), but nuo. Of course not. He hangs around for hours, eating all the leftovers (sorry junior, you're not getting that for school lunch after all), hogging the tv and just generally embarrassing the family. He scampered off once my sims went to bed, and THEN he puts on the outfit - when he LEAVES! Why?
...the weirdness of my game I swear.

Sterling was caught by his girlfriend stealing. She wasn't impressed, and they fought. He only stole one more time after this happened. He's earning enough money from his harvestables that he shouldnt really have to resort to theft.



Sterling aged up to young adult, as did Luna, and they fought over his lack of employment, and parenting. They're married for a while now, but things have been less stable lately. They've grown up, and apart. Maybe they got married too young. But Luna is materialistic now and she tires of living in such a shack. Sterling argues that things are kept clean (he's Neat), that there is heating, electricity and water, what more could she want? She demanded he get a job, so he conceded and entered the gardening career.


I had only planned for them to have one baby. But two happened. I still want him to work as a butler with a family, but he'll need his own residence for himself and his children (and they can't enter the main house). Or maybe his mother can move in with the children while he works as a butler. I don't know yet. (Sterling was a runaway teen but he's at the age now that he can reconcile with at least one of his parents)

With his son, Blake. Daughter is Paige.

But what to do with Luna? Will she be unfaithful (tired of her squalid life?) or will she die under unfortunate circumstances ? (IF YOU HAVE A SUGGESTION SEND IT MY WAY)

I decided to try out the Newcrest Legacy challenge. My founder is on the last stage of completing the Freelance Botanist aspiration. But, her SO's sister showed up and woke her up during the night just before Love Day...to drink her blood. Naturally, my founder locked the front door for non household members. In spite of the holiday, she is considering to break up with Caleb for the safety of herself and their child.

Sterling has suffered the unbearable loss of his teenage sweetheart and wife, Luna. Being childish, she just became hysterical with laughter, and died. It's true, she had flirted with another man, but nothing had happened beyond that, and in fact, Sterling was working hard on strengthening their marriage. And things were going really well, too. They were getting closer again. But then the unimaginable happened and he's alone.



Although Sterling was a runaway teen, as a young adult, his mother was aware of his location, and his life. (Moms know everything hello) So when she heard of Sterlings loss, she moved in with him to help him with the children.

Sterling was not running away from his mother, they had always been close.

A few other family members Sterling hadn't seen since he was 14 came to show support, including Luna (Although she's always been there). Luna and Sterling woohood but she encouraged him to move on with his life and not be afraid to fall in love again.
