Full House

Round 4
2015-2019
Fayers Household
Previous Update/Next Update

Sims2EP9 2015-04-13 12-59-03-67

Clarence Martin is 34, Russell Fayers is 30, Fern Fayers is 36, Faith Fayers is 7, and Terrence Fayers is 1.
(Charles Walters, Ellen Walters, Paul Russell, Jessie Gibson, Jackie Gibson, Jacey Gibson, Frank Gibson, Tobias O’Hara, Justin Ratner, Doreen Bryan, Olive O’Hara,   )

Last time, Fern worked the Toy shop with her dad, Russell.  She sort of worked all the men in town too.  Faith aged up to an adorable little girl and Fern sort of got knocked up by Donald the Reviewer.  Russell then gave Fern the hot tub business and all his perks, then she became human and Russell moved in Clarence Martin after a tepid date, but who can say no when there aren’t many other.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-13 13-37-27-57Sims2EP9 2015-04-13 13-37-32-64

I was asked if Fern had any actual friends without benefits, and I can say that she does indeedy..because sleeping with family is just icky!  There were two more pages of sims, but none were romantic or friendly.

Now back to our regularly scheduled update, but not before I mention that I had a lot of issues in this house.  I will let you know when we get to them.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-13 13-26-18-72

We arrive officially into the house to see some hanky panky going on.  I also found out that my graphics card was not supported and I ran a program and my game looks a billion times better to me.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-13 13-41-44-69

Sims2EP9 2015-04-13 13-43-03-82

Sims2EP9 2015-04-13 13-44-13-92

After hanky panky, it was toddler times with Terrence.  At some point, Fern is seen actually helping out by teaching him to walk and his nursery rhyme.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-13 13-45-21-62

That hanky panky led us to this point, which ruined my plans.  I mean, he still had to have a natural baby, but I had other plans first.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-13 13-45-47-75

Then I said, fuck it.  Let’s do my plan anyway.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-13 13-48-17-55

I was greeted by this and I quit without saving.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-13 14-47-50-61

Much better!  Of course, now Russell is two-toned, but I do fix him in SimPe later on.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-13 14-58-04-74

Now here is the toddler line!  It starts with Terrence and ends with..whoever that is.  The toddlers are Asparagus, Orchid, Oleander and Lavender.  Two boy and two girl “quads”.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-13 15-00-53-27

Faith actually left the piano long enough to play with Asparagus…which makes me laugh typing that up.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-13 15-59-27-70

See!  Fern does notice that Terrence exists!

Sims2EP9 2015-04-13 15-59-46-97

Here is the fixed face of (well profile…ish) Russell.  I hope I got a head on shot because he looks good.  Anyway, I forgot how hard it was to work with four plantbabies.  Lots of love and baths.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-13 16-03-33-34

There he is.  It’s also baby time!

Sims2EP9 2015-04-13 16-38-02-00

Sims2EP9 2015-04-13 16-37-54-23

You know, this would be awesome if we didn’t already have one kid and five toddlers.  At least they are both boys!  Randy (bottom, I think) has brown hair and blue eyes like Martin.  Edmund has red hair and green eyes like Russell.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-13 16-42-05-88

Unfortunately the labor was just too much for Russell after also producing four other kids one right after another.  He placed the baby on the floor and wilted away.

This sucked since I really love him, hence the baby explosion.  Russell was permaplat so I used Rodney’s Death Creator to let him die of old age.  Non-permaplat would have gotten some horrible death.  Anyway, due to this fact, the family does get the old age inheritance.  I will not be calculating it and handing it out like I did when Scott got hit by a car. 

Sims2EP9 2015-04-13 16-42-58-73

Well shit.  Great idea to mass produce babies before having someone die.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-13 16-43-50-82

Martin makes his appearance to grab one of the babies to comfort him.  I don’t actually like the guy, so I don’t control him.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-13 17-23-22-75

Faith plays the piano for the kids.  If she keeps it up she will have maxed creativity before her birthday.

Stuff that happened, but didn’t really happen:

Sims2EP9 2015-04-13 17-29-37-37

The Fayers’ were not poor, but Russell’s insurance proved fruitful.  With the added money, Fern was able to buy Area 23 (I would link it, but MTS has been giving me server down errors since last night), a dance studio..club thing.  As soon as it reaches rank 5 she can leave and join the dance career as her LTW is to be a ballet dancer.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-13 17-37-23-81

Fern, this is not how you make money.
Fern:  Yeah, but this is how you make stars.
Good point.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-13 17-41-29-97

Ellen and Paul came to check out the dance floor.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-13 18-01-44-57

Ellen survives on dates and energizer usages.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-13 18-03-19-96

It is also a fantastic way to make stars.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-13 18-04-29-52

Darrel Marsh proves that Fern hasn’t screwed everyone in town!  Well, okay, now she has.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-13 18-16-06-11

Drew Sullivan was her next victim date.  The poor sap even fell in love.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-13 18-22-58-09

Jessie showed up and heartfarted Fern.  Haha.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-13 18-26-54-62

Fern jams the DJ Booth like a boss.
Fern:  WooT!
Jane:  Man, her hair clipping into her armpit is just so hot.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-13 18-28-31-29

I don’t have inteen in, but I apparently have something in for adult/teen relations.  Jane got what she wanted and Fern got the public woohoo want filled.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-13 18-29-21-11

Jacey showed up.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-13 18-30-16-95

Followed by Jackie.
Jackie:  Your boobs are mesmerizing!
Fern:  Look, I just did your sister, you sure you want a piece of this?
Jackie:  Uh.  No.  Thanks.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-13 18-33-03-54

Frank:  You know, I wouldn’t be adverse to doing in front of the whole place.
Fern:  Good to know.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-13 18-33-59-38

So they did and fell in love.  She abandons Frank to talk Ellen into paying $250 to dance.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-13 18-35-53-64

Fern still has a couple of woohoo’s for 20 left to go.  She sets her sights on Yvette.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-13 18-36-39-10

Fern changes her mind and power networks with her instead.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-13 18-39-31-93

Enrique is her next date.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-13 18-54-30-53

Followed by Justin.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-13 19-04-17-75

And Tobias.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-13 19-06-04-17

Fern dropped prices and meditated for a day to give her girly parts time to recover from all the attention.  Charles’ dancing had me in actual hysterics.  He’s afreakingdorable.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-13 19-09-14-66

Doreen:  Go me! Go me!  I’m awesome.  So awesome!
*splat*

Sims2EP9 2015-04-13 19-09-25-80

Doreen:  You’re not going to show everyone that picture of me falling on my face are you?
Of course not.  You’re safe.
Doreen:  Whew!  Thanks!

Sims2EP9 2015-04-13 19-13-51-90

I forgot all about Doreen and Fern for a while.  Ellen has been riding this thing nonstop for like 5 hours.  She can’t go in a hot tub, but she can spin a million times at 80mph?  Really?

CRASH!

FRICKENFRACKEN@#@$*(^$

Guess who never thought to save?  Yeah.  She lost her 15-20 woohoo’s, 7 dates, which might have gotten her gifts, and a rank 4 business.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-13 19-56-26-02

Don’t worry, I didn’t make you sit through all that again.  No woohoo’s this time or dates this time.  I pretty much just got her to the low end of gold to hit the energizer and then lowered prices to $1 and left her meditating while I read some of the blogs I was behind on.   I came back just after rank 3 and then kept an eye out for rank 4, which is where we died last time.  She jacked the price to see if anyone would pay.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-13 19-57-06-72

Kid Who’s Name Doesn’t Matter:  Hi, Fern!
Fern:  Oh.  You’re just in time!
KWNDM:  For what?

Sims2EP9 2015-04-13 19-58-03-45

Yeah, so for the first time ever, I see this option called “Manipulate”.  I got this shit down to a science.  Dazzle, Manipulate, Manipulate, Dazzle, Energizer.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-13 19-59-25-44

KWNDM:  Did I really just pay $25,000?
Bwahahaha!  Yes you did….and then stayed for like 6 hours.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-13 20-01-55-50

KWNDM:  $25,000 to dance in an empty building?  Yeah, I’m awesome!
Actually, you sound like a rich loser to me.
KWNDM:  Hey, when has a loser like me ever had this much facetime?  I bet you marry me in now.
I would probably need to remember your name for that to happen.

Fern is up to around $252,000 now.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-13 20-06-46-79

Fern gets what’s his name to pay the money too and then a quick date so she can use the energizer.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-13 20-08-10-07

Fern is not making many friends.  She stays in the date long enough to fulfill two wants to get back to gold.  The black haired boy pays up too.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-13 20-11-53-64

Enrique:  You want me to pay how much?
Fern:  Oh, silly.  It’s not that expensive.  You really, really want to make me happy don’t you?
Enrique:  Aren’t you on a date with another man?
Fern:  Oh, don’t you worry about the nonimportant stuff.  Just reach into your pocket and swipe the card.
Enrique:  Yes.  Yes, I should do that right now.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-13 20-13-01-35

Shit!  Jealousy is for married/engaged dammit!  Stop that!

Sims2EP9 2015-04-13 20-14-12-63

Fern:  That bastard tried to ruin my date for the energizer!
Another nameless man:  You’re only dating me for aspiration points?
Fern:  Duh!

Sims2EP9 2015-04-13 20-16-24-86

Fern:  *tickle tickle*
Darrel:  Stop, stop!  I’ll pay!
Fern:  Good boy.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-13 20-18-49-71

Wut?!  Enrique didn’t leave in a jealous rage?  It’s been like 4 hours!  Having a three level business is hard to keep up with.  Enrique beats up the hapless aspiration date.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-13 20-22-52-80

Everyone wants to come in, but Fern can only concentrate on one person at a time.  She chose the girl in yellow.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-13 20-23-27-96

I think paying that much is killing us.  It has been rank 4 for eons.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-13 20-24-47-05

Omg. It’s time to stop.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-13 20-25-04-38

Sims2EP9 2015-04-13 20-26-02-69

The price to get in is $1, but these four are still paying the $25,000.  Fern can now just relax and run from group to group chatting and making sure they keep paying.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-13 20-27-57-96

…and there it is.  Jane gives us the last star for rank 5.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-13 20-26-33-06

She leaves with a lot of cash and can now get a job in the Dance career.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-13 20-37-48-83

Fern:  I’m home guys!  Did you miss me?
Faith:  You were gone?
Fern:  Yes! For like 17 years!
Faith:  No, you were gone like 10 seconds.  Go take a shower, you stink!
Fern:  You’ll thank me in a few years, little sister.
Faith:  For what?

Sims2EP9 2015-04-13 20-39-54-46

Fern:  For the chance to go to college and get a great job.

Fern also put $100,000 in the bank for all the children, as repayment for taking their small inheritance to buy the dance studio.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-13 20-49-54-16

Fern took a shower and drops dead in the bed.  I have a no kids in double beds mod, but apparently it does not work.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-13 20-54-37-34

Asshole Clarence is passed out in rotten mac and cheese.  Fern has to get up and rush around because of all the “So-and-so needs love”  “So-and-so needs water” pop ups.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-13 20-54-51-31

Each child gets three interactions, talk to, snuggle and play with.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-13 20-57-08-51

Sims2EP9 2015-04-13 20-58-06-18

Then we stop for birthdays.  Edmund is up top and Randy is next.  At this point, the pop ups are really yelling for the kids to get water or a bottle.  Apparently giving them a bottle doesn’t work, because they all had one and are still dried out.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-13 20-58-50-06

Tobias dropped off a gift, which confused me.  Her only date with him was before the crash.  She has plenty of money, so she stashes it away.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-13 21-01-38-32

Fern is in a hurry and just shovels the food in.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-13 21-10-49-38

Fern is at work (level 5), when the pop ups show up again.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-13 21-11-19-40

Clarence!  There are like 7 toddlers to take care of!
Clarence:  *bangs keys*  I don’t hear you!

Sims2EP9 2015-04-13 21-14-59-83

Faith got home from school and decided to do her homework outside, where the crying and screaming babies were not so loud.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-13 21-17-59-83

There’s one less toddler now that Terrence has aged up.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-13 21-23-26-81

Fern got home from work (without a promotion) and spent the whole night bathing toddlers.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-13 21-23-42-20

Faith has just passed creativity level 9 and wants to max the skill.  Her paintings are selling for around $200 when she actually leaves the piano, which only happens when it needs to be tuned.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-13 21-25-26-21

Clarence is on his second plate of rotten spaghetti while Fern is at work.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-13 21-28-37-08

Fern finally gets a promotion, but now has two days off.  This is fine because we have toddlers to look after.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-13 21-30-46-68

WOO!  No we don’t!  Last year, I went into Simpe and changed it so age up are at 9pm, in case you were wondering.  Which you probably weren’t.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-13 21-31-06-47

I’m not sure if I was more excited for plantsims or only having two toddlers left at this point.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-13 21-31-59-01

Sims2EP9 2015-04-13 21-32-19-07

Sims2EP9 2015-04-13 21-32-19-69

Sims2EP9 2015-04-13 21-35-01-81

We will just ignore the fact that they are not really becoming teens.  I won’t know which one got which personality until later this round because I don’t have my game open right now.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-13 21-39-28-66

and at the time, I was too busy dealing with this!

Sims2EP9 2015-04-13 21-39-46-62

Lavender, who didn’t drop down in failure, watched on.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-13 21-42-09-00

Terrence learns to study.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-13 21-44-58-93

With less toddlers, Fern is able to spend time with her baby siblings.  God knows that Clarence won’t get off his ass to help out.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-13 21-49-50-70

Now it’s time to say goodbye.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-13 21-50-49-22 - Oleander

Oleander

Sims2EP9 2015-04-13 21-51-22-59 - Orchid

Orchid

Sims2EP9 2015-04-13 21-51-51-15 - Asparagus

Asparagus

Sims2EP9 2015-04-13 21-52-13-36 - Lavender

Lavender

They run off and form our 8th household.

Sims2EP9 2015-04-13 21-53-18-63

Next up was Clarence getting ready to start a real life.  He absolutely refused to take his kids with him.  Fern was horrified and force him to sign over his rights as a parent and as the caretaker of their trust fund.

Glitch alert:  Instead of Clarence leaving, Terrence walked off the lot and disappeared.  He was still in the family tree, but not anywhere in the world.  He could not be called to visit or anything.  I got out the teleporter, but he was not listed under the Fayers’ name.  I went to other lots, I checked with the “quads” and nothing.  I think it was about an hour later that I checked the teleporter again.  I found him listed with the NPC’s.  Crisis averted!

Sims2EP9-2015-04-14-13-28-32-13_thumb.jpg

Poor Fern is now raising three of her siblings and her own little boy.

Taxes: $10,000

Museum:  $250,000 (deduct from Tobias in round 5).

Accomplishments:
University: added
Museum: added
Medical:  Unlocked.
Earned 4 CAS sims
SM Multiplier hit 8
Population
: 480

Things to do:
Start up fund for poor kids to go to college.

Notes:

  • Manipulate- that has to be the greatest thing ever. I have several teens who want to go to university and I knew Fern was the most popular person to get that for them.
  • With the University and more households, a museum was opened up.  I will donate the $250,000 cost for the lot when Round 5 starts.  This also gives us our first positive count for CAS sims.  We need new blood (I had not planned on ever using more than the starting CAS sims), so household 10 will be seen throughout the rest of the round I believe.
  • Crashes and glitches!  I really thought that my hood was exploding when Terrence went missing.  At least he chose the last day of the rotation!
