(I'll be going back and adding both family tags to their posts on blogger, but from rotation 6 and onward it'll just be tagged under DiCarlo.)
Carlotta and Lilith sort of cooperated, and by sort of I mean they stood still long enough for me to get one picture, and then immediately whipped out their phones during the vows. At least that’s in character for Carlotta?
ghost pregnancy, and while it still works with the up-to-date game, I did have to temporarily remove MCCC to get the pregnancy test option to show up.
Now, the baby won’t actually be a ghost, but my plans were just for them to have a normal vampire baby, anyways.
Unlike Jeff, she didn’t return with a new baby-to-be, but that’s because Carlotta is just too glam for pregnancy. She’ll just steal someone else’s baby if she wants one, okay.
I think she gets her meals comped when she orders them for a review, which is entertaining because they have more money than they know what to do with, and really don’t need a free meal.
But, again, I have ~plans~ for that. ;)
Sure enough, Jeff rolled up in some tiny red shorts, as part of a bros work out club I recently made for him.
Poor boy. He tried his best, EA/Maxis just suck at making sure their game features actually work. :P
Carlotta and Jasper are not off to a great start. Seeing how they get along when he’s a child/teen will be interesting; they might have a chance if she’d just stop upsetting him by smashing his toy castle.
(Also I don’t know what she has a remote for, considering they don’t own a tv, or even a radio, but it’s probably best not to ask that question.)
There are two kinds of couples.
I thought since Jeff & Alec had a high relationship, a good marriage, and some kids, the worst that would happen was they'd fight and maybe lose some relationship points.
That was not what happened.
I checked the relationship panel as I played a bit more, and was pleased to see that they still had each other listed as spouses. That was a good sign! I then popped over to their house to see if they maybe had a moodlet about it, or a lower score with each other. Things were fine for about five minutes, and then I noticed they both had new, sad moodlets saying they were getting divorced. Fucking shit.
Thankfully I was able to jump back to a restore point without losing any important progress, since I was actually smart enough to save before royally fucking myself over.
(I apologize for not having a lot of pictures to accompany this bit of shenanigans, but I was a lil busy panicking over breaking up my favourite couple with my own idiocy, and sending a lot of 'haha fuck' messages over on the Boolprop discord.)
Caleb, in true Caleb fashion, was trapped behind a chair when I loaded their lot up. Also crying, but that’s because he has the eternal sadness weakness, not because he was trapped behind a chair like an idiot.
(I think I’d be better off playing it with a Carlotta-like detective, where they’re also a terrible person and I can fuck around on the job and make my own mischief.)
Anyways, I want to try having her become famous in a regular career, and since she has the active trait (and Jeff did the bodybuilding route) I think I’m going to have her become a professional athlete.
I came to the decision at the (original) end of this rotation that I just had too many vampires. It was a whole thing for a few days; I waffled over the decision over on the Boolprop discord, and then once I bought Get Famous I managed to come up with a plan.
First, I had Isobel write a book of life, and bound it to Caleb. This was my ‘oops’ button, so that if I regretted my decision it wouldn’t be too hard to undo. >
Unfortunately Caleb did not have any enemies to come clap over his corpse like Carlotta did to Alec.
I don’t plan on playing her, but I’m hoping if I give some households the haunted trait she’ll still pop up from time to time.
They’re still extremely wealthy, the apartment only cost 130k and they easily had another 150k leftover, so I chucked 75k in the new vault, and hopefully the rent + bills will slowly drain her account.
