O’Hara Family
Fall

Sims2EP9 2016-03-23 07-06-05-60

Back row: Andrew, Tobias, Olive, Yvette
Front: Sherry, Vincent,
Pets: Duchess, Brinks, and Honey

All households will start on Sunday and will end on Thursday this season.  The O’Hara’s were not seen much during Round 5 because they only have $715 cash after buying a huge house.  All University money transmitted has been donated away along with the $250,000 for the hospital.  The town fund are sitting at $59,600.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-23 07-27-02-10

I think they have been waiting a long time to do this.  Have at it, because you are both on birth control  haha.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-23 07-29-21-35

After they had their fun, it was time to go through inventories.  We collected 5 plants, 52 fish, 1 lemon, 4 boots, 2 Little Miss Wendolyn dolls, 2 Witchbegone, 2 ReNuYu, and 1 toy robot from everyone.

In the future, if a plantsim has bought a cure, they will have to drink it.  Same goes for any occult.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-23 07-36-08-78

Duchess has her birthday and she’s just as weird looking as her littermate, Scout.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-23 07-40-52-92

Tobias called up the nanny for the kids and dragged everyone else down to the pub to make some money.  Donald the Reviewer happily slaps down $5,000 to get in but never gives a review.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-23 07-43-11-82

The Pub is Rank 5 and very, very small.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-23 07-43-58-80

I unlocked Bluewater Village as one of the Business districts.  I then turned everyone into townies.  I then added all three Universities and turned all of them into townies too.  So, if you see anyone you recognize (like Wanda Tinker), that is why.  After the family gets a comfortable amount of money, the price will be reduced so the teens can try their hand at getting sales badges.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-23 07-54-44-40

It was finally time for the kids to shine, but with Yvette’s aspiration in the red, it’s hard to get her to do anything.  Andrew ended the three month run with a Silver badge and Yvette got a Bronze.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-23 08-07-10-66

Sims2EP9 2016-03-23 08-14-12-38

The kids were tuckered out, so Tobias bought a hammock and a tent.  There is also a new shower blocked off behind the building for family only.  They now can stay indefinitely.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-23 08-36-28-69

Every once in a while, I have Tobias send everyone home to take a break and then get new customers.  Rhys and Andrew must have been sneaky, because I missed their first kiss.  They only have one bolt, so I’m not too keen on them being together.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-23 08-58-13-40

Oh, and you’ll probably never see the inside of the Pub.  It’s actually a strip poker club and pub.  Too many nudies in there and they do the hula dance naked all the time.  Very disturbing.  Rose R. was trying to get in and since Yvette heartfarted her, I figure this would be a good time to get rid of her first kiss want.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-23 08-59-03-48

I do believe Rose rolled straight, but I forgot to set it, so I might change her to gay.  Flirts were happily accepted.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-23 09-00-59-33

First kisses are important and Yvette wanted it to be perfect.  She made sure they were almost best friends before making her move.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-23 09-01-48-78

And it definitely was perfect for both of them.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-23 09-02-51-60

They spent the rest of the evening together and at the end, Yvette asked Rose to go steady.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-23 09-09-11-09

Sims2EP9 2016-03-23 09-09-28-64

We can thank Stephen Tinker for the 125th star.  I almost leaped for joy.  They only got 1-2 stars a day, so believe me when I say it took 4 real life hours to get from 5-10.  It was brutal and I may or may not have been letting it run in the background (family meditating time) on triple speed while I got caught up on my Willow Creek reading.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-23 09-13-23-46

After they returned home, Olive headed here to the bed, but Tobias ran over to where Oleander was playing with the little kids.  Oleander wasn’t sure how, but he is now the proud owner of Duchess.  Olive was still waiting on the bed for Tobias, so he made sure to join her.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-23 09-14-07-56

Honey got a promotion.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-23 09-22-31-54

Sims2EP9 2016-03-23 09-16-25-30

Shademoor’s newest teen, Vincent.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-23 09-52-30-75

Finally got the notification that Andrew and Yvette were almost adults.
Andrew’s college entrance score is 62.  He earns half price tuition at $1,000 a semester.
Yvette came in at 59.  If she had gotten a silver sales badge, she might have beaten Andrew’s score.  She only has to pay $1,000 a semester too.

Tobias pays $16,000 and went ahead and paid taxes too.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-23 09-53-50-24

Sims2EP9 2016-03-23 09-59-31-54

Andrew and Yvette get the last of their scholarships and leave right then and there.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-23 10-03-14-58

Sims2EP9 2016-03-23 10-04-03-60

The stinky dogs get a bath!

Sims2EP9 2016-03-23 10-05-15-39

Olive:  It feels so weird without all the noise.  I miss the kids already.
Andrew made dinner and they have a nice conversation while eating together for what seems like the first time ever.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-23 23-12-44-09

Did a little bit of hack adjusting and replacing, so of course everyone is all reset.  Hope they weren’t doing anything important.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-23 23-23-35-29

I’m using inteen again for the first time in over a year.  That means both Olive and Tobias are actively using birth control and I do have the flavor pack installed to make it 100% effective.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-23 23-27-04-85

Sims weren’t the only things reset.  They also seem to have gained their needs back up, or I was actually doing a good job simming earlier.  Anyway, Vincent is studying mechanical and Sherry is studying cooking.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-23 23-32-44-62

Well if you can’t get a promotion, money is good, I guess.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-23 23-34-23-06

Sims2EP9 2016-03-23 23-34-13-76

I missed it because I thought she had another day, poor old girl.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-23 23-35-30-71

Vincent becomes the first teen in Shademoor to get off his ass and get a job.  The first thing that popped up was level 2 in business.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-23 23-45-07-01

Although Olive’s promotion to level 7 was great, the moment was stolen by Brinks having his birthday.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-23 23-55-01-26

Well, that was fast.  He doesn’t have an A+, so no overachiever here.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-24 00-00-37-91

Sherry:  Mother, this takes like crap.  Where are the sparkles?
Olive:  Watch your mouth, young lady.
Sherry:  But it’s really, really gro-oss!

Sims2EP9 2016-03-24 00-04-33-25

Sherry:  What have you done with your clothes?  Omg.  I need bleach!

Hahaha.  Omg.  *Emergency Health Class is not available.  Please remove the offending mod.*

Sims2EP9 2016-03-24 00-13-28-06

Sherry:  Daddy, that was not appreciated.  Please keep your clothes on at all times from this moment on.  PROMISE ME!
Tobias: *mortified*  I have no plans to ever take them off again.
Vincent:  It was so freeing though.  I never want to wear clothing again.
Honey:  Bark bark barkbarkbark.
Tobias:  No, Honey, you can NOT have the hotdog.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-24 00-25-26-84

The next day was a double promotion day for Olive and Tobias.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-24 00-36-08-48

It was also the day that Vincent left for college.  His SAS score was 57, so he quickly paid his $8,000 and took off.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-24 00-37-22-38

Sims2EP9 2016-03-24 00-38-34-35

Sherry was asleep when Vince left, so she missed him and her own birthday was delayed.  LTW: Earn $100,000.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-24 00-49-57-24

Sherry: Already?  But we haven’t even been here four hours yet.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-24 00-49-50-46

At $5,000 a ticket, it did go really fast.  I got rid of my aspiration hack, so no more random LTW.  Her secondary is to eat 200 Grilled Cheese sandwiches.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-24 01-09-32-89

It’s the last night of the season.  Tobias and Olive skill logic for work and Sherry gives the dogs a bath.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-24 01-11-43-66

Tobias:  I’ll be back in a little while.  I have got to make a run real quick.
Olive:  At 11pm?  Don’t be long, we have work tomorrow.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-24 01-20-21-89

Tobias really did have important stuff to do.  He heads over to Mable’s club and sees BFF Kim Page there.  He smooth talks her into a crush and then a date.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-24 01-23-14-40

Easy Peasy way to become loves.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-24 01-30-05-97

He then heads to his own Pub and finds BFF (and employee) Penny Ramsey.  He sweet talks her next.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-24 01-30-39-85

So easy and only one more to go.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-24 01-32-54-36

He calls up Ebony Holland next.  They already have crushes on each other, so this should be even easier.  Oh and I think she is so adorable.  I want someone in this town to marry her in.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-24 01-33-21-61

Tobias moves in for the kill.  Poor Lavender thought the rose was for her at first.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-24 01-33-37-49

I’m not sure what Tobias’ LTW was before I started switching mods around, but the Have 10 Simultaneous Loves, was definitely not what he had at the start of the season.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-24 01-43-57-34

When Tobias returned home, he raked the yard to pass time.  Olive and Sherry disposed of the piles and soon the yard looked good again.

Sims2EP9 2016-03-24 01-45-08-50

Sherry contemplates getting a job next season.  She has decided that college is probably not for her.  She wonders if her parents will ever become Business Tycoons at this point because they fail at work so badly.


New way of stats tracking per family.  I got the idea from Willow Creek and really liked it.  I also like the idea of paying taxes up front.  I can have it all calculated before entering the lot instead of having to leave the lot and checking each business and then heading back in to pay.  I might implement some other changes, but I have not decided anything for sure.

Stats:
Family: O’Hara
Business: O’Hara’s Pub, Rank 10
Taxes: $36,600 ($20,600 in taxes, $16,000 in school fees)
Playable sims: 98
Sim multiplier:  51
Population: 4,998
