Rotation 3: Olsen
I almost immediately discovered that you can queue up multiple of the ‘ask for $’ interactions, and have your sims collect much more than 1k from the same sim in one conversation, so that’s exactly how I finished that requirement.
You need to get the bar to about 50% friendship, and they turn you down after a few thousand, but it works pretty well.
I’ve been looking forward to giving these two a kid, especially now that I’ve got Parenthood, Toddler Stuff, and Kids Room stuff from all the sales.
Andy just managed to finish the ‘live in an apartment worth 100k’ requirement for her aspiration, so once they’ve got enough cash they’re free to move. They both earn a decent amount of money from their jobs, but I also had Andy start working on some paintings; I was really hoping to get them in the new house before the baby came.
I’ve discovered a few of the other mood-related food options (the flaming spaghetti, protein plate, and cupid’s cookies) with Jeff and Alec, and this round I discovered the gummy bear pancakes with Miko.
I really like having some special dishes that are mood dependant; I always have Jeff make the protein plate whenever I can. The gummy pancakes are pretty cute, though I wish it would be easier to give them to kids.
None of them ended up winning, and I’m pretty sure a pet actually got the jackpot, because the notification only listed a first name. :P
Despite being heavily pregnant, Miko continues her charity work, because they need that promotion money.
They had a little girl named Luna, because I am very good and very creative when it comes to naming sims. :P
That being said, I’m going to wait to age her up, because their rotation is almost over. It just makes a little more sense to begin the new lifestage at the start of the next rotation.
They had a lot to be thankful for this holiday, that’s for sure.
Luckily Miko only works 3 days a week, and was able to rescue her wife immediately. I am not ready for the challenge of raising a toddler with a single sim.
Andy and Miko have a few upgraded appliances, so I moved those over to the new house (idk if upgrades carry over when you move your household?), and had Andy spend the rest of the rotation upgrading some of their new appliances.
Here’s a few pictures of their new house.
I’m planning on putting a pool & hot tub in when they can afford it, so they can have some backyard pool parties with the boys (and all their future kids).
Miko and Andy have both topped their careers now, and I’m planning on letting them keep the same jobs, since it’ll let Miko stay home with the new baby, and help them earn enough money to finish their house.
Andy’s 3 skill points away from finishing her City Native aspiration; she just needs to max out the singing skill, and at that point I’ll have to choose a new aspiration for her. Like Jeff, i’m not too sure what I’ll give her yet.
Miko was working on the Friend of the World aspiration, but I decided to switch her to the Super Parent aspiration, because I thought that might help introduce me to more of the new Parenthood features. She’s only on the second step of the aspiration, so that should keep her occupied for a while.
