This is a fun Apocalypse, you are doing great!

The hair and fashion tragedies are always a hoot, although the identical hair on kids can get annoying.

Zeeshan in all his iterations is the quintessential Apocalypse spouse :yes: I had a Kai in my last generation :)

Spoiler:
Omg, soooo many chance cards.
I laughed at the cheating with Solveig.
Whoa, the tower! :#1:

Thanks for reading, Lorin!

Spoiler:
It's pretty much mandatory for me to have Gamefaqs open every time someone goes to work, because God knows I can't pick the correct option on my own.

I like how the tower turned out, I was feeling very pressed for space. But I still need a way to move Sims out soon otherwise there won't be room for the next gen!

Y'know I always wondered why everyone married Zeeshan's townie in. :sly: But he really was godly with doing his lift and fairly easy to satisfy for a fortune sim in an apocalypse.

Congrats on lifting Gamer! One of the most annoying of the restrictions IMO.
And the Seasons careers in general have more than their share of lethal chance cards. I'm always relieved to get those out of the way.
Whoa, moving Goopy in, cool, wasn't expecting that.
I'm so glad of the option to give pets away. It's sad watching them walk off the lot, but not nearly as much as the alternative.
Nice tip on eating the Grilled Cheese. I'm actually just starting to play my first ever Grilled Cheese sim. It's their secondary aspiration, but it's taken over their Wants panel.
The deck (modular?) stairs don't create nearly the routing issues as regular staircases so I always use those in an Apocalypse, but you miss the cute Slide Down the Banister animation.

You're doing really good, and it's a fun read! :yes:

Spoiler:
Yep, Gamer is nice to lift, but frankly I've forgotten to call people even on Tuesdays. It's nice when most of the friend count is BFFs.

The Freetime ones annoy me the most, because I never know if I'm going to gain enthusiasm or get demoted.

I was planning to include Goopy for a while because I like his personality. But I sealed the deal once Kai grew up in that shirt :rotfl:

I barely play with pets in normal gameplay, and this is one of the reasons why. But so far, all the ones I've let go tend to walk by the lot again.

The grilled cheese secondary has been such a lifesaver. Because I have no idea how I can keep a pleasure sim happy right now. Sucks that I can't influence anyone to Make Grilled Cheese yet, as that nets a ton of points.

Oh is that so? I never tried building my own stairs lol. At least the spiral staircase makes 'em less stupid about routing.


Thanks so much for reading! <3

This apocalypse is so much fun! It's been so long since I've played with the premade townies, but they really do have a lot of personality! I'm really enjoying your commentary. Congrats on getting Athletics lifted!

I too love the original cast of PV townies, if only most of them weren't so mean!

Getting athletic lifted is such a huge "lift" off my shoulders. :slaphappy:

This is so good. I don't know how I managed to miss the last, like, five updates, but it gave me something to binge read, so it worked out.

I feel so bad for Faith. Just a few days from being able to move out and be with Wendy :( Poor girl.

Thanks so much for reading! :heartbeat:

Spoiler:
I may have a trick or two up my sleeve to try to give Faith the happiness she deserved. She had a rough life, especially in the early stages of the challenge!

I had a lot of fun with this update! A few things:

If cakes aren't supposed to go in the dishwasher, then why do they fit? Checkmate!

I love the look of Katsu and Aamir's house.

I don't remember most of the premade strays, but I do remember Tucker. So cute, so evil. When I was a kid, I moved him in and ended up giving him away.

Hmm, I'd say the trash can would be a safe bet. :rotfl:

Thanks! It's compact but they will just have to deal with it.

I don't think I've ever hated a stray as much as I hate Tucker. I think cats are the way to go from here on out; at least they don't have to be bathed.

Spoiler:
I've always hated university in every Sims game. There's just something about it that makes me want to skip it entirely. (Maybe because of all the restrictions it puts on gameplay.) And Seren had just a rough time starting out!

What a creative use of those architectural details! I was wondering what those were, and I figured they were post apocalyptic barrier thingies.

I'm looking forward to the Icon career. Well, one level's outfit in particular... ;)

Spoiler:
I think what I want to do is only have one kid per generation attend Uni to get their respective lift. It's boring with just one sim but it's also much faster.

Yeah, I hate how she struggled so much because like I mentioned, I could have avoided that just by buying what she needed at the home lot. Oh well, you live, you learn.

I still don't know what those are, but they sort of look like weather vanes. :hmm:

And yes, that outfit is GOLD.

Fun updates!
Spoiler:
Yes! on Athletic, Journalism and Edumacation!

Too bad it was too late for Faith, but that's an Apocalypse for you.

:jawdrop: Tuckerrrr, why you..! Can't believe he got the Jumbok. The Gugenheim reward thingy probably softened that blow somewhat, but I would have been livid! Omigosh!

:wizard: Couldn't have asked for a more serendipitous dress for an aspiring Icon!

The pagoda tower looks good!
