Apocalypse Challenge - A New Fall...

Moonlight Falls - Week 5.

Monday:
Today we were very disturbed early in the morning, when the delivery arrived at silly o'clock, right after the mob knocked on the door for the protection money. Thankfully I was already up and about (having only just fed the twins) pottering around, while Ashley was playing with the twins. Read more...Collapse )

Slower playing now I have to control 4 sims who are sometimes in very different places. It'll pick up again as I get used to it.

Apocalypse Challenge - A New Fall...

Moonlight Falls - Week 4.

Monday:
My birthday. I woke up to the sound of the delivery truck! My building and buy stuffs arrived super early, and I was glad of it. I have completed a second room on the upstairs of my house, and mostly walled in the landing, roofed the second room and added a couple of squares of tile to the landing, strategically placed to try and provide shelter until I can get more! The basement sections went in with no problem, and the windows and door. Some of the walls even got painted, although I did insist on finishing my bedroom first. That room is now done! I bought two cribs, another lounge chair, another dining chair (for the chess table), 2 lights and a new stereo. Well, I need something to work out to!

Apocalypse Challenge - A New Fall...

Miro Torresante, Moonlight Falls - Week 3.

Monday:
Today I worked hard on the game preparation, making sure the team hangs together well, and also on my fitness. I can feel myself getting older, it's not nice to realise I have to work harder to get to where I used to reach with ease... But we're still good! I also chatted on the phone to some acquaintances, managed to make some friends, one of whom is a team-mate so work should go better tomorrow.

Notes and Stats:
The town is starting to complain about a lack of housing, and the sims are pairing off and breaking up at a phenomenal rate. Soon there will be nobody left who isn't related! LOL, I suspect not, but it sure feels that way some days. As for miro, well, he did all right this week....

Skills: Athletic 10, Charisma 9, Cooking 3, Science 1, Handiness 10.
Challenges Met: Body Builder, Celebrity, Personable, Super Friendly, Plumber
Celebrity Status: 4.5 Stars

Miro, Moonlight Falls Week 2:

Stats Check & Notes:
Well the stadium school combo bug means I had to replace the dratted thing. So that's done, took out the Hoi-Polloi I'd put in and replaced that with the Binder Clips Stadium/Show Venue, and put the Town Stuff Pack School in where the old combo used to be. Hopefully that is the only edit of the town required. That happened at 06:05 on Monday, so Miro wasn't able to go to work as the game didn't queue him up for it since he had to get his job back at the new stadium. I used Master Controller to reset his job level and performance to equivalent levels once he had his new job (I can take an oopsie on that if needed). He's doing an hour of game preparation and an hour of hanging with team mates, which seems to be working for him.

Stats Check:

Miro achieved two challenges this week, Super Friendly from Charisma and Plumber from Handiness, his skills are: Athletic 9, Charisma 9, Cooking 2, Science 1, Handiness 10.

Apocalypse Challenge - A New Fall...

Miro:

The last two terms at University were hard work. I was trying desperately to acquire influence with the jocks, but they seemed to know what was going on, maybe Ashley told them, needless to say I found it harder and harder to find any ways to improve my standing. I couldn't attend the parties as they were all outside the permitted zone, and I think this hurt my options further. Ashley stood by me though, keeping me going through the endless school cheers, the jokes about professors and anything else I could come up with. Read more...Collapse )Notes:

Stats Check: Miro has Athletics 8, Charisma 8, Handiness 10, Science 1, Cooking 1 (for PB&J). He has achieved the Celebrity and Personable Skill challenges in Charisma. He brought home from University a Graduation Gnome (in the family inventory), his high School Diploma because I am a sad sap, his University Degree, and the Dorm's computer (which he had already upgraded to unbreakable). His starting Build Balance was $5326, and we made the very most of the frugal trait he acquired from Graduating. He did not achieve sufficient influence with the Jocks to get the 7th trait at uni. Not sure if he can still do that... His other traits remain as Ambitious, Athletic, Bookworm, Genius and Inappropriate.

Miro - The Uni Years, Terms 1 & 2 (Half way!).

I look back now and think, it was mostly sane. Apart from the endless fires, the strangely acquired green stuff they called "Autumn Salad" that seemed to be a regular in the dorm (I never cooked, not once! Probably just as well since I can't do it very well), the piles and piles of dirty clothes and plates that took forever to get someone to clean up, and of course my classes and activities. I worked hard, I was on the Dean's list both terms, passed all my exams and have an A grade report card, met some wonderful friends, and generally had a good time. I have lots of great memories so far..... Read more...Collapse )

I'm really rather looking forward to going back, finishing my degree, seeing what I can accomplish while I'm there that will help me when I get back to here again...

Notes and Stats Check:

Miro's Skills (I'm partway into term 3, so these are from there):
Athletic 6 (almost 7), Charisma 8 (5 pts from brain trainer), Science 1, Handiness 7 (1pt from brain trainer).
Challenges Completed: Celebrity, Personable (both from Charisma).
We think we have met the future spouse - but she changed degree on us so now we're not sure! Ashley Corono was in Business, but is now a Phys Ed major... I'm not sure it makes much difference to be honest, but, we're still romantically involved with her, so I guess unless she turns out to be old, she will still be the spouse for our founder.... in a few updates time of course!

Miro - The Uni Years

The first day in the dorm, and I could tell it was going to be a loooong term! Somehow the one toilet got clogged in less than three hours, and between us, I grabbed the best room in the lot, I'm the only one not in a cheap bunk, not sharing and with a little space to set myself down. I can see why the Authorities said university life would be hard. My schedule though seems anything but, although I have classes three days a week, and activities or lectures on the other two, nothing starts before noon!

Stats check/notes:
Skills: Athletic 2; Handiness 1.

The dorm is hard to play in, single stairs clog, there is laundry and dishes everywhere, the toilet is constantly clogging up (handiness will be a breeze though), and I daren't take my eyes off of Miro for a second as there is too much fun stuff for him to be playing with and I'm not sure he should be enjoying himself yet! It is after all, only his first full day of classes.... Tuesday tomorrow! We'll see what happens then.

Apocalypse Challenge - A New Fall...

OK, I think I am going to have to blog this one up properly. So, here goes....

Our founder is Miro Torresante, an Ambitious, Athletic, Bookworm, Genius, who's a little Inappropriate, but he would like to be a Renaissance Sim. He's just been billeted in Moonlight Falls, and told he can take the first job in the paper, and then go to University to study for it, but, he has to pay for it, and he can't earn any money while he's there. Oh, he's a witch, but the oh so important people haven't twigged to that yet, and he's hoping they won't. So, we've updated Moonlight Falls to have all the required Career lots, and we built the ApocaDorm for our Prestige Occult, Prestige University start.... Wish him luck, he is sure going to need it!
