Spoiler:
Some questions are best left unanswered :lol:

It seemed to last for ages! Maybe it's magic from the cauldron? :D

I genuinely think she is! She turns up (briefly) in the newest update, too!

I love all of the low poly animals, but the seagulls are definitely some of my favourites!

It was about time she found someone, I think :heart:

They know exactly where to stand to ruin your shots :lol:

Yeah, that's true. It must be hard to surprise an occult sim!

I love them both :)

I loved their wedding, it is a shame about the guests though :lol: that lot is so pretty I don't want to stop using it, but I may have to tweak it slightly. They used to sit down!

They do it all the time!

It was so funny :lol: I love the tan lines!


Heather:
Spoiler:
Brows: That would have been perfect timing, but I don't think Summer would have liked it much :lol: I really hope there's some of Dusty in her, I must admit. Most of the kids in the save seem to take after one parent more than the other at the moment! Those tan lines were hilarious :D It's the perfect job for her! I've not managed to get a star yet, but I'm going to make sure Dusty gets one!

Bell: I think so too, even if it took me a while to decide. She's clearly happier about it than he is, though! Cookie is a top tier cat raccoon, and I love having her around. I think Shari has a reasonably okay relationship with her now, which is nice! You can definitely see the family resemblance between them. It's like, why here, Travis? No one ever goes there :lol: It worked out, but maybe he should let Adora pick the date locations from now on! I'm really excited to play their new blended family some more! That picture was priceless :D It's a lot of fun getting them all together!

Vatore: It's tradition! And the dryer fire was just so Caleb, I'm so glad no one was hurt, there was genuinely a moment where I thought he'd died! The Caleb Curse would explain them getting stuck at least :lol: hopefully that happens less from now on. Candy literally turns up all the time, even in the background! She's a Culpepper by association even if her and Lilith don't work out. I really hope she bothers Dusty less next rotation. I really like Max, it's really nice having them together as teens! Nothing surprises me with Caleb anymore :lol: Hopefully some of them fall in love or my rotations are going to be massive. I think the "first wave" of Culpepper babies all start becoming young adults in the winter, and I'm really excited for it!

Spangler: That mac and cheese can feed so many people :D I think she's genuinely going to try and be in every update! It's such a good power, there really should be a spell for it! I love the Realm, I take far, far too many screenshots when Elsie is there. The aesthetic was perfect even if the guests didn't want to play ball :lol: I have no idea why the guests are doing that, but it does seem to happen every time now! Twinning is winning :lol: Yeah, I definitely think Summer wins that contest :D


xiapxls:
:wave: welcome!
Spoiler:
The aesthetic was absolutely perfect but the guests just didn't want to play ball :lol: One day they'll all sit down for a ceremony

Honestly, it lasted days! I couldn't believe how much it made. Perfect for large families, I reckon!

It's probably my favourite mermaid ability, definitely the one I use the most!

It was about time I found someone for Venus :) She and Kaylie are super cute!

I can't wait to play them!

Thanks for the comments, guys! :hug:

Spoiler:
Snickers is a magic teleporting cat.

Maybe Jo dislikes Candy because she knows all about her stalkery behavior?

Father Winter will stand in the middle of the bar until he gets his drink! No one gets one before him. :lol:

Pets always seem to get sick when you come back to them!

I wouldn't trust Jo's cooking.

I love all the costumes, especially Kirby being a vampire.

Maybe no one's asked Dusty for an autograph for a while. :D

Still so glad Adora is happy, but I love that they both got up mid sentence to take a picture of Judith.

No Jo! Don't do that!

Morgyn takes their position as a teacher very seriously.

Yay for a new cat! I wonder how they'll get along.

RIP Snickers. :(

Love Shadow on the Rumba though!

She really is!

That's possible! :)

It cracks me up seeing what Father Winter gets up to at these parties :lol:

Every rotation, without fail! It's really weird.

She's supposed to have 7 cooking points, too!

I love seeing what they come dressed as!

Apparently not, she's desperate for attention :lol:

I can't wait to play Adora's household! No one can resist Judith's fame :D

It was such an odd thing for her to do!

They really do! It's nice to see :)

I'm so excited about the new cats!

I was super sad to see her go :( I had no idea she was that old!

It's like she knew we needed cheering up :lol:


Thanks for your comment! :) :)

Spoiler:
That picture of Windenburg is gorgeous!

Gotta love teens and their constant selfies.

David seems like he's going to be a bit of a player.

Your sims love to bike in the house! :lol:

The oldest child thing is so true with an age difference. My cousin's have had to babysit their little siblings so much.

Go Oli!

I don't like the high chairs much personally. They're kind of a hassle.

A mean and evil sim. That'll be an interesting household to play!

I love the little pumpkin patch. It's cute. :)

I think Oli is just shy.

Frankie is being a good boy and reminding them to get home in time, so they aren't grounded. :D

I think the downtown area of Windenburg, I guess I'd call it that, is more exciting in terms of people watching. I would see all kinds of walkbys there when I had sims living there.

Miko's just not a fan of holidays I guess.

I think your simself has good reason not to trust David!

Wow I can't believe the twins are young adults already! Can't wait to see what they get up to.

Windenburg can be so pretty sometimes!

It's never ending :D

I must admit, it's fun to play him like that!

They really do!!

I am the oldest child too, I was always expected to help out :lol:

I love Oli :heart:

I might not bother with them next time someone has a kid.

It's such a cute lot!

I get that impression from him too :)

:lol: how did he type with his paws!

Maybe I should have someone live there later on. Where the Titans live is very rural, not much happens when they're all off the lot.

Apparently not!

She knows better :lol:

It snuck up on me! I genuinely thought their birthday was next season! I am excited to play them as adults, though!


Thanks for your comment :D
I didn't actually expect to finish this update today, but I surprised myself - the Brows family update is up now!

Spoiler:
I would be confused too. Doesn't really look like much muscle flexing going on there. :)

Norah's message made me laugh out loud, and then summer blocking Dusty's easel. Too funny! :rotfl:

Stealing Tori's cake? How rude!

I feel like Tori takes a lot after Summer.

Kirby looks so sad!

I always think it's silly when they get upset over finding out a sim is an alien when they're not even wearing a disguise.

Father Winter wants a picture with Dusty. :lol:

Love the pile of passed out fans.

Dusty's stan is so weird.

Go Tori for completing her aspiration!

It's cute to see Tori can still enjoy the romance festival even though she's a kid.

Awe I just love Summer and Dusty together. :heart:

She's trying her best I guess :lol:

Norah is a huge fan of Dusty lately for some reason?? :D The easel blocking cracked me up too!

I couldn't believe it!

Me too, although I'm sure there's some Dusty in her somewhere.

She really does!

I don't think Norah's ever worn a disguise :lol: and this isn't the first time Summer has met her!

He's a huge fan apparently!

It's so funny when they collapse in a heap like that!

I should probably mess around with the lock on the door to stop the Stan entering, but I don't want to lock everyone else out too!

It took so much effort but I'm glad it's done!

I loved that they were able to go as a family :)

They're one of my all-time favourite couples!


Thanks for your comment!
Time for the Bell family update!

Spoiler:
Tania is adorable. I love alien kiddos so much!

I love Taeko's makeover. It's sad that she's sort of an in between kid with the different age groups.

Looks like there's a possible romance there? Shari knows what's up. ;)

Awe Max and Taeko are cute.

Max is an adorable dork, just like Caleb.

Kissing in the rain can be romantic. Going to a pumpkin patch? Maybe not so much. :lol:

Poor Cookie getting crushed under Adora.

I'm shocked Akira actually made an appearance.

It's always funny when a sim's entire family shows up when they're on a date.

I'm so happy for Adora. She's finally found happiness and love.

Tania is still cute!

That's such a pretty wedding venue. :heart:

Akira is probably just jealous Adora's moved on now.

Hopefully he'll continue to stay involved in his kids' lives.

She's so cute! :heart:

It took me a little while to decide, but I really like how she looks! It can be awkward with inbetween kids.

Shari definitely knows :lol:

I really like them together!

There's absolutely no denying who his father is!

Yeah, I agree :lol: still, it was nice for them to have that time together

It did amuse me though!

Me too! He's had a key this whole time, he's only just decided to use it.

I definitely think Caleb wanted to see who his son was hanging out with :lo:

I'm really pleased for her, I really think things have worked out for the best :heart:

I love her! She looks a lot like her Dad, too.

I found it on the gallery and I absolutely love it.

Probably! He's broke and living in Culpepper House alone :lol:

Fingers crossed!!


Thanks for your comment! :hug:

Spoiler:
You should just play the sims you enjoy. I'll still look forward to these updates no matter what. :)

Wow way to break tradition Kirby and Caleb!

I almost forgot about Lilith and Candy!

With the dazed look and moodlet, the Sims team really isn't trying very hard to hide what "blowing bubbles" actually is. :lol:

Poor Caleb! Glad he got a nice relaxing bath afterwards.

Giving her toy to Caleb is so sweet. :heart:

Have fun with the aliens Kirby! At least she won't bring a little surprise back, unless you have your MCCC settings adjusted.

Max taking advantage of the fact that he more or less has the house to himself with his girlfriend over I see.

The family costumes were cute! It's a shame most of the other guests bailed.

I wonder how scary that would be for a little pup to just poof in and out of existence!

Awe I do hope Candy and Lilith do work.

Maybe Caleb's just a bit awkward around kids. Though I feel like he's a bit awkward around everyone probably. :D

It would be kind of hard to ignore the constant bat woohoo.

It is sad that Max chose to be mortal and his parents aren't, but I suppose these things just happen. Vampires probably learn to cope better with grief as time goes on I would imagine? Though it doesn't make things easier.

I guess it took Candy a while, but she's finally found love. I guess maybe it works that Lilith is a more go with the flow kind of girl?

Coffin woohoo is so funny!

I think Max and Taeko will make it. I don't blame her for being worried, especially with how all of her dad's relationships have ended.

If I were a sim I'd be way too afraid to ever order any pufferfish dish.

Yay for impromptu wedding!

I love the family picture at the end.

Thank you, that's good to hear! :) Hopefully I won't be taking anyone else out for awhile.

Right? I was so surprised!

They haven't been together very long, it's okay to forget :lol:

They barely tried to cover it up :lol: the dazed moodlet is the biggest giveaway !

It does crack me up when he's got the face pack and the cucumbers on, though :D

She loves her dad really!

I haven't tweaked the settings for aliens, it's still just guys who can come back pregnant. Although it rarely seems to happen in my game!

Like a real teenager would, I reckon :D

I loved getting them all dressed up, even if the party was a bust.

Right? Caleb probably scarred her for life with that move!

:D

He hisses constantly and apparently people don't like it when you do that :lol: it's worse when the kids were toddlers, they really hated the hissing then.

There's just some things you can't ignore, and that's definitely one of them !

It's also partly because I don't want the save overrun with immortals! But yeah, I would imagine they'd cope and know how to deal with it better as time goes on.

It really is!!

I love the two of them together :heart:

My boyfriend and I were actually talking about this the other night, because we were watching someone eat fugu. He said he'd try it if the opportunity came up, but I would probably give it a miss.

It just felt right :D

It's the first ever staged family portrait I've taken that I didn't immediately hate :lol:

Spoiler:
I wonder if they'll stay childless for long. :)

For some reason I headcannon Morgyn as a super strict sage, so they'd also be a super strict professor. They expect nothing but the best from their students.

I don't know much about Glimmerbrook's weather either. The few times I've actually bothered to check, it's been warm, but who knows. :shrug:

That seems to be a typical spellcaster thing. Duel each other and then want to woohoo. I feel kind of sorry for the Leaf Bat for having to watch the whole thing.

I would love to know what Morgyn did to tick of Kirby. Out of the Culpepper pals, she seems the most laid back.

I guess Star Wars kinds of fits with the magical theme? Kind of? Not really?

I kind of love the awkward fashion choices. What is it with EA and making their supernatural sims wear goofy clothing. :lol:

Yes, just run along random townie. Nothing to see here! :D

If Elsie can beat a sage, then she can definitely beat random spellcasters!

I really love that greenhouse in the Magic Realm.

Morgyn looks slightly confused but happy for the new baby.

You should've kept Morgyn green just for fun!

Caroline is adorable!

Spoiler:
Not long at all :lol:

I can see that! I see Morgyn as quite serious, which is probably why I thought they'd make a great teacher!

I guess we'll have to wait and see how spring & summer look! I kind of hope it's not as gloomy as some of the other worlds.

That's just how spellcasters romance, I guess :lol: Very patient little Leafbat, hovering there waiting for them to be done!

Me too! It was so surprising, Kirby's literally the nicest of the bunch!

I guess some of the robes could count, but I don't think the darth vader helmet really fits the aesthetic of the realm :lol:

They absolutely love their goofy fashion choices!!

Yes, don't get involved unless you have to :D

Definitely!!

I do too! It's a shame it's not for something, you know? I rarely find ingredients over there.

Like they weren't expecting it right now :lol:

I did think about it! :D

I love her! :)

Maybe Jo had a secret costume party while you were gone!

I've never had pets stop anyone from woohooing. Other sims, but never pets.

Shadow is like their unruly child. :lol:

Yeah I don't think Thorne Bailey is too popular among sims and simmers alike! :shifty:

The future is now! Complete with floating cars lol!

I've decided that vampires lose all idea of what humans are supposed to wear, so given their wacky fashion sense, Kirby probably thought that was a good outfit. She's cosplaying as human. :D

I can't believe Jo is old now! It's so sad to see sims turn into elders.

Bathrooms are always a sim's favorite spot to do anything.

I'm sure Jo is having fun with all the parties!

Now they're both old. :( At least they look super cute together as old ladies.

Apologies for being woefully behind on commenting; I've gone back to work this month and running daycamps for kids has just been draining all my energy in the evenings. Planning on leaving a mega comment for the last rotation later, but for now I'll start on the newest rotation! I've been reading all these as they come out, though. <3

I don't think my sims have ever been put off by pets being in the room while they're trying to woohoo? I wonder if that's new!

The flea market is definitely the least interesting of the festivals, and I feel like Thorne Bailey is almost always at it with a guitar! I'm hoping the market space option for the new community venue will end up being a better version of it.

Miko looks like she's judging Jo just a lil.

Jo is just as stunning as an elder, but seeing the Culpepper pals start to grow old is making me a bit sad!

Congratulations on knocking all those parties out!

I I think the snow might have something to do with the way the foundation is built for the lot, but I'm not 100% sure. It does that in my game too, though.

Looks like it! :lol:

Yeah I've never had it either! I thought it was a bit odd.

She's probably my favourite at the minute!

I don't think he has many fans at all! Maybe I should play him properly sometime :hmm:

Clearly!! :D

That has to be it :lol: although it doesn't explain why so many townies spawn with the vampire gloves! I think it's an alright look for Kirby, as far as randomised looks go!

I can't believe we're at this point already! I'm not ready to lose my sims to the reaper yet!

Yup :lol: it happens with most families

It was a lot of fun playing them all!

They're an adorable couple :heart:

Spoiler:
No worries! :) It sounds like you've got your hands full with work, and I totally get it - I don't feel like doing much after work tbh! I hope you have time to relax a little soon <3

I don't think I've ever seen it before! I don't think it used to bother Jo?

Very occasionally I'll buy an item of furniture there but generally it's pretty dull. Candy tends to swoop in and play the guitar at my festivals, this is the first time I've seen Thorne in a while. Oh that's a good point, I haven't played around with the new pack enough to use the community spaces yet! I've only had it about a week.

Maybe a tiny bit :lol:

It's a really exciting time because the new generation is getting ready to step into the limelight, but I'm really sad I'm getting elders! It feels too soon! It's very bittersweet, I'm not ready to let any of them go just yet!

I'm so glad it's done, even if it was a lot of fun!

At least it's not just mine that's busted then :lol:

I love Marnie's outfit that you came back to. Super spooky! :D

I wonder why pets are always either dirty or sick when you come back to a household?

I love that about sims. You can call someone over from the other side of the sim world, and they'll show up in a couple of minutes.

That dollhouse is super cute!

Staging stuff is a little harder in TS4 since we can't move sims around other than with the teleport statue.

Miko and Norah are so sweet. :heart:

I'm surprised the firefighters did anything! From what I've seen in others' games, they're completely useless.

Walks always take forever! I usually have my sims go on a shorter walk or jog with the dogs.

As always, the bathroom is the place to be.

Their new little apartment is cute. :)

I'm sure Frankie will have fun living on the beach.

It's always nice for the kids to have a get together.

It was a great look, wasn't it? :D must be leftover from a party she attended or something

It's really weird, isn't it? What do they get up to while I'm gone??

It's really nice, I think! Otherwise David would never get to see his family :lol:

I love that dollhouse!

It's so much harder doing it this way! Plus it's difficult finding poses, I think - several of the "family" packs don't seem suitable for families without toddlers!

I love them together :heart:

I had heard they're not brilliant! I was surprised that it took two of them to handle that small fire!

Probably going to have to go for smaller walks in the future!

Naturally :D

I really like it! It's a bit tight, but it's functional, and so much cheaper.

I definitely think he prefers it there!

I love getting them all together :heart: this group are so close, it's nice!


Thanks for your comment :hug:
Time for an update, because I don't want to get too far ahead in game!!

I'm interested to see how David manages to live off the grid. I admit I haven't played with that aspect of the game.

Nice to see Frankie again. :)

Yeah, I'm not a huge fan of the neighborhood action plans that came with Eco Living. I really like the rest of the pack, but that, not so much.

Sulani is so pretty, and it's fitting to put David in the Conservationist career since he's going to live there.

David likes to hoard lumps of clay I guess. :lol:

I'm sorry you lost your progress there. :( At least Penny was still around for David to talk to.

I like David and Penny together!

:lol: I like the idea of him having to borrow someone's wifi since he's off the grid technically.

Love that Candy just passed out in the library. Maybe she stayed there too late reading?

Camilla is also super cute! David is meeting so many cute girls.

Poor Frankie getting old so soon.

It's nice to include your sims form other challenges in this save!

Yes, Norah and Miko totally sent Jo out to keep an eye on David. It'd be too suspicious if they showed up.

Yeah it's weird how sims can have a pristine reputation when they're serial romantics. Nothing seems pristine about that to me!

Oooo drama with Bella and Casey.

David seems to be acting really sweet with Casey. At this point, I'm not sure who I want him to end up with.

It's nice to see Miko drop by!

Re: Culpepper Pals (hopefully updating soon!)

Postby Sam » October 20th, 2020, 9:53 am

Hey! Did you miss me? I kind of stopped playing Sims over the summer, but I'm back...although things have changed a little bit...

Basically, my boyfriend accidentally reformatted the wrong hard drive when doing some computer repairs a couple of weeks ago. We've managed to recover lost photos & documents, but unfortunately any saved games we had were gone. Luckily, I found a back up of the Culpepper Pals save, which made me happy. The downside is that I'm a loose canon who hasn't backed her game up since January...so all of the autumn 2 and winter 2 gameplay is gone. Apparently Summer 2 just ended for the gang. I was a little disheartened, but it is what it is unfortunately. In a way, it's kind of nice to be playing autumn in game when it's autumn in real life, though.

Anyway! I'm hoping to have some updates up soon. In the meantime, I hope you're all doing well :heart:
