Nora and Vanessa hung out at The Red Velvet Room with Leigh and her sister Gillian.
The special seeds that Muriel had planted for Sonia finally bore life fruit.
Now Sonia just had to find a pink diamond. After spending several days checking the spawn spots by the amphitheater and the diner with no luck, I decided to bring in the miner and start drilling holes all over town.
She found her pink diamond and was at last able to create a simbot!
Because I had too many sims in the household, Sonia’s new creation got automatically kicked out, and I had to use Master Controller to add her back in. The game gave her the name Rene, and she is brave, good, handy, hydrophobic, and, weirdly, technophobic.
Because of that last trait, she kept on breaking the families’ electronics, and then, because she’s a simbot, crying about it. I find simbots so adorable!
Rene made friends with Calvinotep. Perhaps they can be roomies when we move to Bridgeport.
I sent Rene to the junkyard to get some scrap to eat.
Back at the legacy house, Nora had been spending a lot of time practicing on her guitar. I like to have her perform individual songs rather than just selecting the generic ‘practice’ option, because the former raises the ‘number of times performed’ count. The higher that number, the larger tips she’ll get.
Sonia had collected so many gems in her search for a pink diamond, that I was able to use the display stand to create a skull cut emerald. This is a World Adventures feature, but I only just found about it so thought I’d include it here.
I had Rene join the firefighter profession, but wasn’t able to get her to go to work. Each morning, the countdown until her work time would reset back to ‘1 day’. A helpful friend suggested I replace the fire station with a fresh copy from the library, which fixed the problem. Things were looking up until I came across another bug: every few hours, the maintenance performed upon the engine and alarm would reset back to 0%, which meant that, because the fire engine was not fit to drive, Rene was unable to respond to emergencies. I had her run back and forth constantly maintaining them both for a couple of days before giving up.
She spent the remainder of her working week bouncing on the trampoline instead. Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!
Muriel and Jamison had both been sitting on wishes to get married for a while, and a wedding seemed like a nice way to say goodbye to Twinbrook.
The couple said their vows at the Esplanade, overlooking the river.
I hope you don’t mind that this was a slightly shorter generation; I think I’ve made my opinion of the Ambitions professions clear! Still, sculpting was as fun as always, the consignment store was a fantastic discovery, and I was pleased to be able to add a simbot to the extended family, as they are one of my favourite life states. Next time, we’ll be joining Nora, Vanessa, Emmanuel as they explore some of Late Night’s features. Happy Simming until then!
