Much like Andy, they also got a little wardrobe update. Alec didn't change much, because I feel like his black plaid shirt is kind of ionic Alec at this point, but Jeff gets a sweet new plaid shirt (to match his bro, of course), and the same sneakers that his daughter wears in another universe...
Of course, he needs to go to culinary school first, and I'd still like to have him top the regular chef career, but I'm hoping that having a ~distinguished~ degree in the culinary arts will boost him through the career track fast enough that he will actually be able to open a restaurant before he starts turning old and wrinkly. Again.
I've kept his traits the same as my main save, so he's still a self-assured, foodie loner, but he'll be working through the new academic aspiration before moving on to the master chef or nerd brain aspirations.
I'm not concerned with actually having him earn a degree - I know from playing the Winchester kids in my main save that sims on the soccer team can be offered a job if they drop out of school, so my goal for Jeff will be to have him earn a job offer while playing on the team, instead.
He kept his original bodybuilder aspiration, along with his traits, so he's still a hot-headed active bro.
I might change things up by moving him into the salt house this time around - it'd give him for space for outdoor activities, and would be much better suited for, say, a future dog...
Recently, I've given up on trying to makeover all the community lots myself - I can easily spend an entire day just redoing one lot, and I've found myself avoid visiting lots that I hadn't had a chance to decorate yet because they tend to be really empty-looking and poorly lit.
So, I downloaded a bunch of nice lots from the gallery (this park being one of them), and I'm hoping having a bunch of nice, new places for my sims to visit will encourage me to get them out of the house more.
Alec, as you can see, is still a little pissy about the alien thing. Aliens are only allowed to exist on his t-shirts, I guess.
Jeff doesn't get accepted for the athletic scholarship just yet, but I'm hoping he'll be able to apply for it again later on. He did actually have a high enough bodyskill to get accepted into Foxbury's distinguished biology degree, but I sent him to Britechester for pyshcology, because it is crucial that he and Alec share a dorm room together.
How else would they develop a bromance otherwise?
There is only one household left in the rotation (I felt like writing any more than three updates per rotation would just be too much for me at the moment) - and as you can probably guess from reading Andy's first update, it will feature Liv and Cole!
