I’d initially moved Carlotta and Isobel into a very old-fashioned and fancy house in Forgotten Hollow, but I like the idea of her being a stylish, modern city vamp a lot better. Isobel is going to get her own apartment (and rotation), hence, my sudden need to relocate Jeff.
Her lot traits are TLC, registered vampire lair, and mean vibe, which later got switched to romantic aura.
Carlotta had some of the plants from Forgotten Hollow tucked away in her inventory, so I was also able to turn her balcony into a small garden so she could grow them for vampire things.
I did actually consider moving Alec and Jeff into this apartment, and then giving theirs to Carlotta or Isobel, but I decided against it. It would have been nice to have some outdoor space for Rocket, but I didn’t want to have to design them an entirely new apartment.
She did manage win the voodoo doll, though.
I tried to have her do some voodoo on Alec, but it wasn’t working, so she decided to just suck his blood instead.
On one hand it’s terrible game design: neighbours shouldn’t be happily chilling out in your apartment if there’s a mutual hatred between them and our sim, but on the other… it’s kind of a power move?
She drains their plasma, they drain her tablet’s battery.
I blame the leather jacket; it was giving me Rosa Diaz vibes.
@littleredwritingthings from Tumblr, and I went to town on Carlotta’s apartment. She had a secret stash of all her old Forgotten Hollow furniture in her household inventory, so I sold most of it to cover the cost of all the new furniture.
I know vampires can’t actually see their reflections, but this vintage glamour vanity is just so Carlotta. Love that there’s actually a cycle of make-up animations for it! <3
I’m glad she has the super speed trait, because wasting part of your sim’s work day just getting them to their different stations/tasks is really fucking annoying.
I think critic fits her snob trait better, anyways.
She’s worked her way up far enough in the vampire rankings to have full sun light immunity, and it’s a good thing because the critic career has already sent her out more than her PR job did.
The game also sent me about 4 extra npcs than I needed to fulfill her task of talking to a vendor.
The rotation wraps up with Carlotta publishing her first book, Fuck You Alec Winchester. Sadly, I did not realize that self-publishing would get rid of the physical book, I was kinda hoping she could keep that.
