I’ve been having Cassidy participate in science experiments a couple of times a day. There’s a chance for these to turn her into a plantsim.
She also improved her gardening skill to level seven, allowing her to complete her herb garden with the two rarest – chamomile and bumbleleaf. Chamomile makes it easier to gain influence with social groups, and bumbleleaf allows sims to create street art in public areas without being arrested.
I give all my sims the ‘summunity’ lifetime reward from Seasons, which, as a side effect, completely prevents sims getting sick from eating herbs. With this reward, they can take herbs in food and drink, and even eat them raw, without any fear of becoming unwell. I especially like to have my students snack on wonderpetal if they get hungry between classes, because it increases the rate at which their academic performance can be raised. Also, it’s really pretty!
The end of the week arrived, and Nathan and Cassidy both aced their exams. They took their roommates out for dinner to celebrate.
It looks like Kathleen’s affections might be straying away from Locke.
Sure enough, the next morning I found them in the middle of a big argument.
After some bumbleaf-laced orange pancakes, Nathan headed to the town square to leave his mark. A day of street art got his rebel influence up to level eight, earning him the extra trait. I gave him savvy seller.
Cassidy began her day with a cup of chamomile tea. (I’m using this mod to make all the university drinks available from regular coffee machines.)
I had decided to have her spend her Saturday protesting a worthy cause. I chose a medium difficultly one against criminals. Cassidy handed out some fliers.
I wanted to hold the protest in the picturesque town square, but there wasn’t enough room for the podium, so I went for the courtyard of city hall instead.
The protest went perfectly.
Cassidy and her fellow protesters shared a celebratory dinner at the local pizzeria. (Don’t worry about the green steam: that’s just the herbs.)
Marty would be so proud of Cassidy’s success. I planned to have her call him in the morning. But as things turned out, she had even bigger news to share.
I’d thought I’d want to keep Cassidy in her original clothes after her transformation, but I really liked the blue variation of the plantsim outfit she rolled, so I decided to keep it.
Time for a snooze.
By the time Nathan and Cassidy were fully rested, rain clouds had filled the skies. I had them spend the rest of Sunday morning in the university building working on their skills.
The weather had cleared up by the late afternoon, so I sent Cassidy out to find some bugs and seeds for her experiments.
She failed to convert her finds into anything interesting, but she did manage to improve the quality of some of the cinnamon from her garden.
That evening, Nathan got invited to a party. He served up some ratatouille, but there wasn’t much else to do, so he stole a couple of lamps ‘for his art’ and went back to the dorm.
