Well, so far so good. No one has died but daddy's hit the floor once and nearly did a billion other times. So, this is my challenge founder father bwahaha, Balthazar Draconis
I haven't used the elixir of life yet and I've stayed with the rules about going out to the telescope the night of the baby's birthday... like right that night. I've had four kids so far with him. He's preggers with the fifth. I'm not sure if you can have all seven without the elixir... anyway, here's Daddy, well a closer up picture of him.
First born was Eltanin, she's the only girl out of the lot so far. She got potty trained, learned to talk but that was all I could manage before she grew to a child. She had dad help her learn to study and quickly came home with an A+. She's a bit on the lazy side and doesn't care to help with the chores, unless it's the garden where I grow their food so it sustains daddy better. She has a temper and just grew up to a teen. Thank Goodness! I nearly cried with relief that Balthazar would be having some help with the wee ones now.
Aldibain is a little green skinned boy of pure evil... no, seriously this kid can give the meanest looks even as a toddler, you'll see in the picture below. He learned to walk and use the potty, but again, couldn't teach him a third skill because no smart milk and no time with all the kids around. He grew up into a fickle and ornery child, he's the family's neat freak and will go around cleaning up things without being asked. He's learned to study as well and has an A+ report card. He'll be turning into a teen in a few days.
The third born is Rastaban and he's just the sweetest thing. Very happy baby that learned to walk and use the potty but again, nothing else because daddy was having difficulties and really Rastaban was lucky to learn all he had. He's just turned into a child, not before the youngest one snagged him in a huggle. Already he wants to learn how to study and well, he's just the sweetest little boy.
Altais is darling, he's got these huge eyes and is always wanting cuddles and love. He just turned into a toddler and that was the first thing he did, crawled over and squished on Rastaban before he was too big to do it *lol* Not much else is known about this little tyke, he's just turned toddler so time will tell if he keeps his sweet disposition that's nearly more saccharin then his big brother Rastaban!
Now, the kiddies
Some how, they all got daddy's eye color, not the alien tone*lol* not that I'm complaining, I love the ivy green ^^
I'm hoping for twins now or with the next one so I won't have to use it *lol* come on twins! Geez, it was during the Apocalypse Challenge that the twins came like.. all the time! And they weren't even family Sims... gah, the game KNOWS.
I finally got a post done for my blog about what I've done so far on this challenge. It includes a fairly complete account of what all happened in the two sim weeks I played the house, with lots of pics to illustrate. The post can be found here:
oOoo... I like it. See I'm trying to get up the gumption to write out a story as well for my live journal page, some of my kids are adults now and living on their own. Eltanin actually has her own little girl, Orly, named after her father Orson *cough, giggle* Orly? heh. And Aldhidbain is married and wants to have a baby but so far he and his wife haven't had any luck
"for each job tree that is available in your version, you must roll a die- if you get an even number, they will accept your employment, but if you get an odd number, they will not"
I just rolled a die for an odd or even number. An odd number meant they had to wait another day to roll again. An even number meant they could take that job (on the computer or paper) that was available and the one for which you were rolling. For instance, your sim wants an architecture job but the paper offers military, culinary, or slacker. You roll to see if your sim can get the military job, but you get an odd number. So the next day, you pick a different job in the paper or computer to try for. If you roll an even number, then your sim can get that job. When the architecture job is finally available, you can roll again to see if they are accepted for that one. (That's the way I did it anyway: a simple yes or no to "Can I get this job today?" If not, then you must wait a day to try again.)
Okay, finally got this sucker done. I have more pics to post but I didn't want to over flow the thread here so it's all in my livejournal. *flails and flops over* I may try this again with a romance sim and see how long he lasts.... *cackles madly*
Edit: Oh, I will be adding another post or two containing pictures of memorable moments such as first kisses and wanting to kill their siblings *lol* Plus, grand babies!! <3
Okay, I started over, the first time was a blast and I had to try again with a Romance Sim ^^ made a little slide show, he's got three babies so far and one on the way. A girl and two boys, Lily, Joshua and Brian.
This sounds like an interesting challenge. I have a question though about the "Aliens are not human" handicap. Wouldn't you have to cheat w/the debug cheat on to up a child's energy? Otherwise on school days they get tired around 8 - 8:30 pm and on non school days sometimes around 7:30pm! So, if I were to choose that handicap, would it apply to children? Teens have no problem at all of course.
I just started to play this challenge today, and already it's killing me! My daddy went to his second "visit" via telescope, and nanny was taking care of the first baby. Well, as always, I used boolprop to make nanny selectable and forced her to take care of the baby and clean the house. Just when my daddy-sim returned (of course happily pregnant), the nanny was taking out the trash. I focused on taking good pics of my sim etc., so nanny stood a second next to trashcan and then did something autonomously... and that was to go to telescope and get abducted! I was laughing my eyes out, literaly.So I made her unselectable and just sit back and enjoyed the show! And even managed to take good pictures and a short video too! So these simmier really keep surprising me, and it really was just what I needed, good laugh and a memory I won't soon forgeth I would put pictures here but it did'nt work atleast for now. And sorry my bad english, i hope this gave atleast some kind of picture to your heads!
(I'm using the same modded telescope from MTS2, that's link is in the first post)
I started on this challenge yesterday, a knowledge sim named Jaime (pronounced high-meh) Duron. he's been getting along okay, he has a crush on his neighbor and she's always calling him at night, he can't decide whether to have a snack or answer the phone. he's currently pregnant with his first kid. i will post pics as soon as i reach the required number of posts.
antihero, there is a hack in MATY called phonehack, that allowes you to turn phone sound off if you like. Also with that you can choose how many times phone rings. I mean if you don't like that phone keeps ringing all the time. for me it's a lifesaver!
Ciane, I don't know actually can I post video here, and I don't have account in youtube either, but I could send pictures when I have enough posts in here. If I understood correctly. I'm still new with this :o
Oh my goodness, this would just be insane! I played through part of a Poverty Challenge, which ends up being very similar with the babies being born, and in that challenge the mom had a husband to help out with the kids when he wasn't working. Seriously, most of the time she was so drained she couldn't do anything more than eat, sleep and use the bathroom. That brings to mind something else: considering the motive drain workbenches have, I don't think a pregnant Sim could spend enough time using one to ever accomplish anything. LOL
