To celebrate the birth of our fifth generation heir, I decorated the nursery.
Unlike the other trait-related dreams I’d tried out so far, Jia’s ‘dream about a different personality’ from the last part seemed have permanent effects. Before she next went to sleep, I manually changed her traits back to what they were before.
That night, it was ‘personal hygiene’ for Lin and ‘generations’ for Jia.
Ho Sung has been feeling lonely since Carter passed. His sister’s gone too, and most of his friends. He’s been staying indoors a lot, teaching love songs to Jia’s falcon. I should find him some new friends.
We laid Sun Young to rest in the Land of the Ancestors graveyard.
When Lin’s birthday arrived, I had a real nightmare trying to get her to age up. She would start celebrating at the birthday cake, but then the interaction would cancel out for no reason. The same thing happened when I tried to use Master Controller’s ‘trigger age transition’.
I vaguely remembered having a similar issue a few years ago. Back then it was resolved by resetting the problematic sim before their birthday, but that didn’t help this time. Neither did reloading my game with cleared caches, nor moving the family in and out. I even rolled back to a save I’d made before we went to Egypt, in case something had got messed up during travel, but to no avail.
In the end, I just aged Lin up in CAS, then reset her to stop her glitching out. I used a randomizer to determine her final trait. Now she’s brave, artistic, a gatherer, and a night owl.
With Jia’s collecting routine feeling a little stale, I decided it was time for another family vacation, this time to Al Simhara.
At the end of each day, Jia continued to experiment with the dream pod.
