Hopefully her new yard will be just as gorgeous, but landscaping's really not my forte so we'll have to see, haha.
Also the bear. I mean, on one hand it's hilarious that you can encounter a 'bear' in the woods and said 'bear' is just a costume, but on the other... I also miss bigfoot from ts2, and kinda wish they'd gone for a less cartoony creature that your sims could encounter?
I just want more supernaturals in ts4, please.
I do miss having community lots like a restaurant and a gift shop, but I may just sacrifice one of the cabins to make a restaurant, assuming the game allows it.
I haven't played a ton with the fishing in 4 yet - I'm still kind of used to ts2 gameplay, where the only collection you had was the bug one from free time, so I've yet to really make an effort to have my sims start working on the different ts4 ones.
I'll have to save that as a goal for whenever I make another nature-oriented sim. For Liv, I'm mostly just concerned with having her collect and plant all the different flowers.
Upon trying to have it put it out, I discovered that there was a glitch with placing chairs around a campfire, in which they will prevent your sims from extinguishing any unintentional fires, and you just kinda have to let them burn out on their own because there's nothing you can do about it without exiting the lot.
It did burn out eventually with minimal damage, but I had to replace his guitar.
Luckily you don't need to do anything special to get to it, so I sent Liv off to explore, and see if she could find any fancy bugs there.
Assuming they can just be displayed indefinitely like the frogs, anyways.
Anyways, I had Liv identify her new finds, which sims do by eating them, apparently, and then plant the non-toxic ones in her garden.
Apparently you can make the bouquets last longer by scenting them with bluebell, and now I'm wondering if it would be realistic for Liv to open a lil flower shop somewhere...
Apparently, once you have a sim die in your save you can find the Grim Reaper around town, so it looks like Caleb dying worked out even better than expected. ;)
The irony here is that I have managed to dress all my artistic sims in basically the same colour scheme, which the exception of Hanna, who Livy dressed...
Having been an art student myself though, I can tell you people with ~independent styles~ can absolutely end up dressing/looking the same as other students, to the point where I once thought two guys were the same dude until I ended up in a class with both of them together.
Felix is also doing... something with his face, although I have never seen a human face make that expression so I can't tell you what it is. An extremely bad impression of concern, maybe.
Luckily they've still got the closet for some privacy.
I didn't even know households you weren't actively playing could get abducted in your were on their lot!
However, since they were not actively visiting, the game would only let me go as far as knocking on the door, because it would lock me out of the option to go inside, use their phone, or return back to their own apartment.
Andy then returned from her abduction, and ran into the house from the backyard, past the fire, and then joined the gang outside.
At this point I'd exhausted all of my options, and I was locked out from doing literally anything other than having them stay outside the apartment until the fire burned out. Seeing as they have a very large house, I was worried that could take literal hours, so I was forced to exit without saving.
Whoever decided not to include any sort of emergency fire department in this game can go eat a big bag of dicks. Had I not invested hours of my time and hundreds of my dollars into this game I might have actually just straight up quit at this point.
(Luckily, I later discovered a solution to avoid this, so EA can continue to collect all of my dollars, my soul, and my firstborn child.)
I don't know what it is about my vampires, but they always have the best "situation" looks.
Cole attempted the spicy curry challenge, and failed...
(Please note Felix making out with his boyfriend in the background like he's not supposedly programmed to dislike public affection.)
Honestly, this whole mess could have been avoided if Felix had just come down to the festival and cooperated like he did this time around. The only reason I was on Miko and Andy's lot was because he wouldn't accept the invite to hang out unless I invited him to a specific lot!
I think it might have to do with the fact that I've got fame off by default. I don't have a huge pool of celebrity sims, so it's rare that they appear on my community lots (so far.)
It did not, but not she has a trash fruit she can grow in her garden, I guess.
He's tired of living in a building of paranormal idiots, I guess.
And now it's time for the noisy bitch rundown! Cole breaks out his guitar again, and Jeff is furious that someone else is making noise in the apartment. How dare they, bro!
Whenever Jeff rolls around to complain about noise I usually just ignore him, because he's a noisy bitch and doesn't deserve an apology, haha.
Jeff didn't even have time for any woohooing during my next rotation, but that's okay because he apparently gets plenty of action when I'm not playing.
Lacie's single in my game, but that won't stop her from having a loud woosolo session to win.
