Extra hour in bed means it is time to catch up!

Spoiler:
I am thoroughly enjoying Balin's romping adventures, it feels like he's doing it out of spite for not getting to be heir! But now he has a young wife so it all good, I hope they get busy soon! I'm the same about passing genes on. Maybe it comes from playing through that Sims to Sims 2 crossover and everyone was like OHMYGOSH THE mY CAN HAVE BABIES? The babies can grow up?! I don't know, but I deffo understand!

The lack of girls is super weird! In TS3 is it influenced by how many male/females there are in the world? Like if there's a bunch of girls in other households the game is trying to balance it out? Lore is so good (even as a spare) but I'm pretty excited by the blonde R twin!

Also, it SUCKS about the glitchy-old neighbourhood, I hope this one works out better for ya :)

Yay for catch up!
Spoiler:
I think the lack of girls might have to do with my SP settings. I have it set as balanced and maybe have to put it at random. It's not all my games, it's just the ones that have already had a chain of boys. I'm so hesitant about fidgeting with mod setting, but with this I may have to buck and do it.

And the most amusing thing about Balin is that he didn't try to form a personality until he lost the poll. I mean they all have them, but he didn't try until it was already too late.

And Starlight Shores has always been hit or miss for me. SInce the move it is much smoother than it was even at the beginning when it was only Cammie.

I just started reading this, I've begun Owen's chapters. And even though I've already done three OWBC's in Sims 2 I might want to start another one for Sims 3. I seem to be gravitating towards Sims 3 more now that I've done a generational challenge in it. Anyway, I'll be reading.

Also new update!

Where in the World is Cammie Zane? Part 1

I'm also realizing I may have to do some organization on the topic post.

What was I going to say? Oh right:

Spoiler:
Try setting up a Paint Still Life for the portraits but before they get to the easel set up the subject with camera man mode, I've gotten some good portraits using that method. So does that traveller mod fix things like that Dragon Cave quest that you have to go to France to get the keystone for? I tried that in my Monster Mash challenge with my spouse and as soon as he got to France I got the pop up about the Nectary merchant and then nothing; it went poof. :banghead: Also I have never managed to locate that Nectary Tomb quest, it's the only one I have never been able to do without cheating. Anyway, I know who I'm picking in the heir poll; whenever it's up.

Spoiler:
About the Traveler mod, I'm honestly am not sure. My adventure board glitch got unwork-aroundable so I went looking and of course Nraas had something. I've only had it in game for a day at this point, so I'm testing it out. But it fixed my glitch with no problem, so I feel it might. I am so anxious about mods and I kinda dived in without thinking. Sorry, it's not much help, but Cammie has that quest on deck after she wraps up this next trip, so I'll see what happens.

As for the heir poll, it should be up in a few hours. I'm working the wordpress page as we speak along with uploading photos for the boolprop thread. Multi-tasking is my best friend! :wizard:

Also, I need to sit down and catch up on your Monster Mash challenge. I read the first chapter and then got distracted, as I tend to do. I love Vincent's name btw :)

If you are still on the fence about who to marry Rook to I just discovered that my Monsters actually turn out to be gorgeous. One of my spares is in need of a nice boy, she's a witch named Morgan (named after Morgan LeFey of course) and I don't really want to let her go into the world of SP...if she has a better option. She totally rocks the whole Steampunk thing by the way I adore her to pieces.

:hmm: I like that idea and Morgan is lovely. Especially since the move and there isn't a huge population of cute girls Rook's age. It may take a bit because they are still only halfway through teen at this point. But if he's into girls(I'm such a bad simmer sometimes), we may have an accord! :P

Spoiler:
She's just newly turned YA so she's not that much older than him, but she can wait for him if he wants her of course. If not she has a triplet brother who is just as pretty (he's a ghost/witch hybrid so I don't know if that would carry over).

I'm all caught up again

Spoiler:
I loved seeing Cammie in China! I always forget about World adventures so it was like a whole new EP. Although her second visit was a little sadder :( I'm glad Rook won! I completely missed the poll and although I love Percy's ears I would have deffo voted for him. Long may Rook reign!

Also - the monster mash challenge in TS3? I am so excited to see the results!

Spoiler:
I hopped in yesterday and Rook is straight. The plan from here is that I'll wait until he ages up to YA before putting Morgan in. That also gives him a bit of freedom. If he happens to find someone I approve of, which is very unlikely, then I'm not sure what to do from there. As you probably are with Morgan, I want Rook to be as happy within the confines of my rules. I'm planning on doing some intense play today, so I might let you know about Rook's status later. No guarantees though. I am easily distractable.


Cynicalbadger:
Spoiler:
Personally, I was torn between Rook and Percy too. Rook has the genes, but Percy has such a fun personality! The generation 2 kids are awesome and I am having a really hard time letting them go! Lorelei and Lowell are still in the house and I think until Rook and Reed age, the three older kids will stay in the house. They all have things to do anyway!

As for the Monster Mash, I'm excited to do it on the smaller scale that the full blown challenge. I've been doing research( I love research!) to see which ones would be easiest and cause the least chance of disturbing the already fragile ecosystem I have in place.

Spoiler:
I'll have to email you the file if you want Morgan. Someone hacked my mediafire account and changed my password so I can't get into it anymore and I don't trust the Exchange to keep her up long enough for you to get if something comes up and you can't get on to download her. And yes, doing a Monster Mash challenge in Sims 3 is much harder since most of the occult states are designed not to be layerable they can only be one or the other. Except if one is a ghost there's a chance or glitch that a baby will end up both.
