I had her apply to her schools and scholarships at the same time as Will and Luna, so I just held off on actually enrolling her until I had finished their terms. She'll be majoring in drama at Britechester, as I mentioned in the Olsens' last update, and she managed to snag the rising star scholarship after she levelled up some of her musical skills.
I don't think it has anything to do with Ariel being part-alien - I've run into the same problem in my Super Sim save, although she and Ariel both have green hair, so maybe that's what's causing it? I have no idea.
I love how upset she looks about being put in a hot dog costume.
I can't tell if that wall has no wallpaper on purpose (like it's under construction?) or if one of the devs fucked up and forgot to paint it.
The game sent over this cutie as the first applicant, so I had Ariel ask her to room together immediately. She's a madeover version of one of the Maxis-made gallery sims, and while her original name is Zoe Flores, I decided to change it to Xiomara, so that there's no confusion between her and Zoe Patel.
My logic there was that I've heard Xo used as a nickname for Xiomara, and Xo sounds like Zoe.
I had no idea the roommates could flirt with your sims! I was absolutely expecting them to just be a huge nuisance, but the fact that they can get a lil romance going on their own gives them so much potential.
She's got some extra balcony space back at her apartment that I haven't been able to decorate yet, so I'll probably give her a private hot tub once she can afford it.
I was hoping to send them down to the romance festival this rotation, but Xiomara had work, so I just sent Ariel down to grab some food, and see which of my couples decided to celebrate.
Please note that Dr. "Unflirty" Felix Rudolf is back at it with his stealth flirt shenanigans.
Don't mind his hair, I was playing around with some other curly styles before Tiny Living came out, and I found the perfect hair for him.
The costume always seems to give her the right hat, at least, but I still have no idea why she never gets any hair styling or makeup done.
Anyways, she gets another gold for her performance today, but what she really needs is a gold movie performance for her aspiration, so I'll have to keep sending her to shoot shows until she gets a movie deal.
I didn't even get a proper picture of it, that's how shook I was by this sudden turn of events. Guys, roommates are gamechanging.
I know they asked us a few questions about tweaks to romantic relationships in one of the community surveys, so I wonder if we'll see more of this in a future patch!
I love the Shakespeare references in the drama class titles. I'm sure some of the other classes have had referential titles, but I'm not enough of a science nerd to have caught them, haha. It's a shame I don't have any art majors this generation.
