PostSubject: Gram's SIMburbs    Mon Jan 07, 2013 3:08 pm

Rheassi was the first neighbor to move in. She started studying right away.

Rheassi chats with the clerk from Stonesthrow Greenhouse. I think he must have followed her home. Surprised ? She was robbed. The thief took her bicycle and something else.


Gram gets moved in and goes to Stonesthrow to harvest food and sunrays. She sold enough to replace her bed. Thought this such a good idea had everyone do it. So all the neighbors have or will have upgrades in their beds and a little decorating of their new home which were pretty sparse in most cases.

Took her to Alistar's Apocathary and while I was looking around for things to collect she started studying. That probably isn't a bad idea.

Rheassi visited Gram.

Hottoddy and Rawla and Buttons move in. Hotty and Rawla get acquainted at Stonesthrow.

Gram and Hotty meet.

Hotty was waiting in the bushes at Gram's.

Buttons pays a surprise visit.

They're chatting away one minute...

...and the next minute Buttons is cleaning up Gram's kitchen.

Buttons meets Hotty at Stonesthrow Greenhouse.

Button's throws a swim party.

Gram plays in the sprinkler in Buttons garden.

The next time Buttons had a party Gram was still there in the garden. Looks like she's meditating. Going to have to MoveObjects on to get her out of there.

Raine moves in the neighborhood and immediately goes to Stonesthrow to harvest goodies.

Raine took a shower in her formal. ?

Raine met Victor Bean and they got along famously. Here they are at an outing at the festival park.

Then she saw Phillip Galloway dancing with the Sunflower and just had to meet him.

They were so engrossed in their conversation they didn't notice the sprinklers had come on.

Raine leaving for work.

Raine was in her garden when a big shadow came over her. I thought 'abduction', she cringes as I panned out to see the space ship and this happened.

Meteor! No! Raine is under there!

Firemen (2 of them) arrive to put out the many fires and Grim arrives. Raine had a deathflower in her backpack but moi freaked and tried to give it to Grim instead of leaving it in her backpack. And it disappeared!

Grim insisted on Raine going into her tombstome. He didn't take her with him. ?

I was crushed too. In the interest of keeping the game challenge going, I went to the Sim bin and put Raine back in her house. This is what it looked like.

Raine went to Stonesthrow to get some cash for some furnishings for her home and to the library for some necessary reading and when she went back home I noticed the river behind her house. And I did wonder what happened to the garden and the meteors I was planning on cashing in for $$. I put her in the wrong house. Embarassed

Great story - death maybe only a breath away.
My Simself just suffered from suffocation while stuffing food into her at an eating contest to hurriedly.
Guess I shouldn't have let he go without food that long. Lol.

I shall keep my fingers crossed for the new Raine, good luck!

A change. Everyone had to be moved from Moonlight Falls to Sunlit Tides. Moonlight Falls would not let me change neighbors from Hottoddy Severn to Gram Crackers. The pannel would disappear and I would be left with this lovely aerial view of Moonlight Falls but no way to access any lot. I determined the save must have become corrupted. Sad So I got the bright idea sunny to move everyone to the bin ( hoping they would keep their skills )and moved them to Sunlit Tides. That's a rather spread out community, so I studied the lay out, put down some new lots, added houses, and saved some starter dwellings to the bin to put on slightly larger lots knowing the houses would probably need to be enlarged. A few neighbors had collected some baggage along the way, thus the need for the housing strategy. All went well. The neighbors I checked on not only kept their skills but also their jobs and job level. Hallelujah!
A little background on the neighbors before they moved: Rheassi was the 1st neighbor I played. Then I moved in Buttons and got her situated, then moved in Raine and she was such a hoot to play, definitely a Sim with a mind of her own. Raine had an affair with Victor Bean and after that they didn't get along, always fighting, so it was just as well they never married. But Raine did have a baby boy, named Storm. Rheassi had a party and the Sim I was playing went and there were these puppies all over the place. So needed to play Rheassi to make sure the animals had food bowls, etc. Her dog had had 3 puppies. She was almost at music level 9 ( that girl liked playing her guitar and I'd often see her playing it around town ) and career level 3 in the music business. Hottoddy was living with Alfred Hoppcraft ( but it seems they were breaking up) and it seems that Rheassi was also in love with Alfred Hoppcraft. silent Rawla had adopted a puppy , one of Rheassi's dog. Rheassi's dog had had something like 18 puppies. Rolling Eyes Good grief. Thankfully there were none at the time of the big move.

Sunlit Tides: A New Beginning

Day 1 Thursday
Gram moves into her new house.

Day2
Tried to send Gram to Island Farmers Market but she went to work instead. After work at 9:25 she went to visit the Severn household at Fisherman's Bay on Paradise Circle.

Hottoddy wasn't home but her fiance Alfred Hoppcraft was.He was a flirt. Gram was tired and hungry so when Hottoddy hadn't shown up by midnight she went home.

The meal she cooked caused a fire. Being a coward she freaked out and left the house.

She made it as far as the front porch before fainting. The fireman arrived and put out the spreading fire.

She thanked them and they got to talking about anything and everything. You might say they got along like a house-a-fire, talking way into the night.

About 4 am Gram finally had to go to bed. Surprisingly Niel Johnston stayed and waited for her to get up.

Day 3
Gram woke up early, not getting a full nights sleep.

They resume chatting.

Niel stays for breakfast, Lemon pancakes.
Gram goes to unclog the toilet while Niel washes the breakfast dishes.

they both want to use the bathroom at the same time.
Gram solves that problem by shooing Niel to the kitchen sink to brush his teeth, leaving her the bathroom to shower and get dressed.

They spend the afternoon watching TV and chatting.

Gram went to bed after Niel left to catch up on some much needed sleep.
Day 3
I tried to send her to the Island Farmers Market but she went to work instead. She had a job with a restaurant.
After she got off work she visited Buttons Ginger, because Buttons was home.
Buttons lives in Ocean View.

She'd been sleeping but stayed up for a little chat.

Day 4
Gram went to the Island Farmers Market again and this time she harvested produce. Fall had just started so she was lucky to get some Red Valarian. She ran into Buttons at the market.
Day 5
She fished and picked wildflowers for cash.
Day 6
Gram went to Rain Cloud's house to meet and chat a bit with Raine.
Raine lives in Island Sherbert house on Paradise Circle.

For some reason Gram went to the back door. this seems to be an Island 'thing', going to people's back doors instead of their front doors.

Visiting with Raine.

That evening she invited Niel over to watch the stars.

They were definitely in love so Gram popped the question. Niel was thrilled.

Niel couldn't see any reason to wait to wed and Gram was hoping for some remodling $$,
so.....

Niel joined the household with over 1,000 and had a job as a fireman but wanted to go into the military.
Day 7
Niel looked for another job and studied cooking. Gram went to visit the SIMyth household. Rawla and her dog Niji live in Seashells on The Beach.

Gram meets Rawla and after impressing her...
( It was amazing that all the neighbors had 3 or more stars and poor Gram only had 1 star. Clover had 5 stars.)

They chatted but the friendship didn't get far. Gram needs to do something abut that.

Gram went to the Red Velvet Lounge that night for a drink and meet Rheassi there.

Day 8 Thursday
The Lionpaws were finally home. ( 8 days, really? There are children involved here. Oh, I might have forgotten to mention that Leonie had to interview Lionel when living in Moonlight Falls, and they hit it off marvelously, got married and started producing little fairies. Lisa was first. The twins, Lilly and ?, were a surprise as was the fact they were girls when Mom ate apples. ) They all live on 3 Lagoon Beach in Sea Gables, a 4 bedroom, 5 bath on the beach. Lionel is Science 7 and Leonie is still in the Military.

They did get to talk some.

Gram then rushed over to Friday Nooboo's place at 2 am.

Friday lives in Hot House next door to Buttons( whose house is at the end of the road on the beach) and down the road from Rheassi, owner of the dog who likes to have puppies.
So they finally get acquainted. After Gram runs the gauntlet of impressing another many stared personage with her not so witty conversation.

That leaves Clover Noeddehaven to meet. Very difficult Sim to find.
Gram got ill. Probably from too many late nights.
Day 9
Gram worked out and got 2 and 3/4 level of skill. she has 4 cooking, 1 handy, 5 fishing, 2 logic, and 1 Alchemy.
Day 10
Gram visited Raine Cloud again. It was raining, how appropriate. She tried Clover's house again and this time got a message that clover was at Pleasnt View Park. Reading in one of the gazabo's. In the rain, in the dark.

Gram made quick acquaintance then ran off to the restroom.

Clover went home to Bethany Beach House at The End of the Road.

Being tenacious, Gram followed her there and was able to impress the 5 star celebrity so they can now converse. Gram got back home at 5 am.

You might say Gram struck while things were hot. Laughing
Great houses ... thumbs up

Dat11, Sun. Gram spent the day gaining skills - working out and handiness.
Day12, Mon. Niel got promoted to Military level 2. Gram slept late, stopped at the festival grounds to pick flowers. (In Sunlit Tides, all the flowers are are behind the festival grounds, on the beach around the pillars.) then on to Allister's to study alchemy. she reached level 3 and bought some Red Valerian and made a jar of friendship elixir.
Day13, Tues. Gram went to a party at Rawla's but couldn't get in the gate because a car was blocking the way. It was a costume party and she finally got in the house only to find her way blocked by doggie bombs. ( Think that's what they were. )


She went home and read her handiness book them practiced her charisma, her wish.
Day 14, Wed. Niel got another promotion so while he worked out at the gym ( no room at the house for work out equipment ), Gram went to the Alchemy shop to try to make another jar of friendship elixir, her first attempt failing.
Week 3, day 15 Niel meets Honeypie at the fairgrounds where he went to pick flowers. Gram worked out then joined Law Enforcement.

Niel got promoted again and needed another athletic skill so he went to the Jungle Gym to work out and Gram worked on her logic at the library. She met up with Leonie when she went to the gym to work out with Niel and they became friends. At last!
Sat. Gram read 'How to avoid Concrete shoes' for work.

Sunday the went to China to learn the Martial Arts skill for their respective jobs.
Both reached level 1 and Neil went off looking for rocks while Gram worked some more on the training dummy.

The only pic taken in China that showed up in screenshots.
Monday Niel stayed at work to read in the Military barracks.

Gram ran into Leonie at the gym and they became friends again.

Gram goes to Leonie's home. She tried to start a jam session but Leonie's daughter Lisa got to the bass first so Leonie went out into the garden to play with the sprinkler.


Lisa goes off to practice her magic and Gram finally gets Leonie to jam some blues with her.

1. Leonie 3. Late Night
2. Hottoddy 1. World Adventures
3. Clover 7. Supernatural
4. Rawla 6. Showtime
5. Rheassi 4. Generations
6. Friday 9. Base Game
7. Raine 10. Premium Store Content
8. Buttons 5. Pets
9. Merry Widdow 8. Seasons

Well, Gram made it to level 2 on the piano at Leonies before she had to leave. She'd also been promoted to level 2 to in her job. Niel had gone to bed too early so woke him up and sent him to the gym to work out. He'd been promoted to level 5 in his work.
Tues. was a wash. ( Have no idea what happened. Some days are like that.)
Wed.
Gram went to work and left breakfast in the oven. The stove had to be replaced.
Week 4
Thursday
It's looking like Hottoddy no longer lives with her fiance. I moved him out in preparation to moving the couple back in and lo and behold, there they were together. One way to find a Sim who keeps disappearing. I visited every commercial lot and establishment that could be gotten into and she was no where to be found.
As soon as they were moved in Gram rushed right over to visit Hottoddy while she was still there.

Not willing to take any chances this time on Hottoddy's disappearing again, Gram used a bottle of friendship elixir on her.

Fri. Gram got promoted and needed to real 'More Out Than In: Maintaining a Proper Desk Environment'.
Sat. Gram invited Hottoddy over thinking to teach her karate but the option didn't come up so she gave her a gift. Hottoddy accepted the gift of a Kawarimono Koi from Gram and seemed very pleased with the fish. (The whole thing was fishy if you ask me.)

Niel went to play at the festival grounds.

He picked all the wild flowers then went to get his face painted. I picked a pirates face and he got this...

I told him to have a little dignity. They both want a first child and need the money to pay for the house that's being built for them so they can have a child.
Gram went to visit Rawla on Sunday.

Then she went to Clover's house,

and again, Clover left and Gram had to follow her to the Toadstool Hangout.

After impressing Clover ( of the 5 stars fame) they talked.
Ginger was at the Toadstool also and let Gram take a snapshot of her.

Monday Gram met Raine at the Port-A-Party Mini Warehouse and they became friends.
Gram went for a swim in the tank then shot some pool.

Home to bed where a Zombie tried to trick her into opening her door by ringing the door bell. eeek
Wed.
Gram needed a report for work so she interviewed Alfred Hoppcraft, Hottoddy's fiance. Niel sued for slander after work, and won, then visited the Cake Pleasure Dome before competing in an Olympic challenge.
Week 5
Thursday
After a few phone calls to Clover and Rain to boost friendship levels, Gram worked out.
Friday, Saturday, Sunday
Gram finally made friends with Clover.

Gram invited Clover over and gave her an elixir of a Vial of Bliss. Clover was pleased.

Monday
Gram got promoted. She's entered the Forensic Field of Law Enforcement. The correct field was picked thanks to Sookielee who looked it up for me since I couldn't leave the screen. Bless you and thank you again!
Also talked with Rawla who is the next neighbor in line to interact with.
Tuesday
Neil made 2,575 $$ from picking wildflowers and selling them. Gram felt she could buy a telescope now but the front porch had to be enlarged to have a place to use it. A minor financial set back.

To be continued..........

'How to avoid Concrete shoes"? LOL what kind of job does she have? Oh law enforcement..I thought maybe the criminal branch.. Guess that could come in handy for a cop as well;)
I didn't know you could have costume parties..cool! Since you used the friendship elixir does that turn her into and instant friend..does it last?

Using the Friendship elixir on another Sim does make then an instant friend but you still have to keep up the friendship.

Week 6 Thurs.
Gram met up with Rawla at Hottoddy's place. They became friends and Gram called for a "You Are Special" sing-a-gram which was delivered to Rheassi's house. No picture. So on Sat. Gram ran into Rheassi at Patty's Pool but before they could use the slippery slide, Rheassi had to go to work. Mad

( Experienced a new thing with the game: when they lose a friend their social level plunges.)
Sunday
Gram worked at learning chemistry. There were a lot of explosions but only 1 potion learned. She had to shoo away a Peeping Tom. She spared with Niel and he won. He didn't gloat too badly.

Monday
Niel's co-workers threw him a 1 year anniversary party at the base and he participated in an air show.
Gram make a potion in her chemistry lab, a Radical Reparum, but Rheassi wouldn't drop by so Gram couldn't give it to her. I think someone warned Rheassi.
Tues., Wed.
Gram got promoted to Sketch Artist ( Level Cool and started taking pictures with an old camera Niel found. Niel was also promoted and achieved his LTW of being an Astronaut.
Week 7
Thurs. Rheassi came by for a visit and Gram was able to give her a gift of a vial of Radical Reparum.

Sat.
Gram visits Friday, who has new roommates.


Tony Taylor and Duchess Little Dog.

Gram gave Friday a gift of an uncut smokey Quarts Gem.
The camera slid away and instead we have a shot of Duchess Little dog.

Friday and Gram played an intense game of Rock, Paper, Scissors.

Hummm...I think Friday may have lost.

Then Gram went next door to visit Buttons Ginger. They had a pillow fight.
Niel must have fooled with the chemistry set while Gram was gone.

By his casual attitude he must think Gram isn't gong to notice.
things were breaking again around the house. Niel repaired the old TV and Gram repaired the computer so she could write a report for work.
Sunday
On Sunday Gram invited Rain to the Relaxation Station that's on top of the mountain in Sunlit tides. she had hoped her friend might enjoy the spa amenities.
Rain got there but did not seem interested in the hydrotheraphy or a mud bath. ( Don't blame her on the latter choice)


Buttons played the Bass for everyone.

It took Gram almost 2 hours to get home. she's going to be tired for work in the morning.
Monday
Gram celebrated 1 year at the Island Police Headquarters. Her co-workers threw her a party. After work she went to the Cake Come and had ice cream but couldn't give one to Raine.


Another day this week she called Buttons after work and they went to the Petite Pony Equestrian Center. It cost $200 to watch the equestrian competition, but Gram only had to pay $123.

They had an argument after the show.

Monday
Gram got promoted to 3D Crime Scene Modeler, level 9.
Tues - Fri
Questioned Buttons for a report for work.

Looks like the neighborhood might be going downhill. This woman was performing for tips in Gram's and Niel's back yard. The nightclub scene was creeping into their neighborhood.

Their new house was finally ready so they moved in over the weekend. And Gram got pregnant.

Monday
Niel had to work so Gram went shopping and bought a healthy pile of books. Mostly cookbooks but she also purchased a few children's books and some recipe's for Neil. Good thing Niel got another raise.
Tues., baby Matthew arrived. Gram studied logic while Niel took care of Matthew that first night.

Friday, a week later
Matthew has birthday and is learning to walk and talk, etc.
Friday, another week later, Gram had to sue for slander and won an almost $10,000 settlement. She paid about 1/3 of that in legal fees.
Sat was Niel and Grams' 2nd wedding anniversary. They were so busy with Matthew no one paid the bills and the repoman came to the house. He looked like he was enjoying his work. Makes you wonder if he gets to keep the stuff.

Monday Gram returned to work and since that was also Niels one day a week to work, a baby sitter was called to watch over Matthew. Arturo Shepherd.


Arturo, upon entering the house, went first to the baby changing station and kissed his fingers.

Then wisely changed from his tux into more sensible clothing suitable to the job of babysitting.

Replayed the weekend and things came out the same.
Gram was promoted to DNA Profiler and completed her LTW. She is still short 4 jpainting skill and 3 logic. she has still not maxed any skills but is close to maxing out cooking. Niel has maxed athletic and handiness and almost cooking. An annoying action has cropped up. Every time one of the parents wants to interact with Matthew, they go outside and so does Matthew. Niel got another raise and now makes $507 an hour and celebrated his 2nd year at work with his co-workers.
It's now Fall and Niel and Gram are trying for another child.
Thurs. Matthew learned to walk. Gram made it to level 9 in cooking.
Sat. Matthew grew up while Mom was at the hospital. Gram and Niel had a baby girl, Norah.

Merry Widdow moved into the neighborhood, right next door to Gram and Niel. Her house is called "I Can smell The Sea".

Things calmed down at home after Norah learned to walk.

Gram had made friends with Merry but could not get her to go anywhere cause Merry was always working. Then one day Merry said yes and they met at the Island Festival park but Merry had to dash off right away. Gram decided to pick wildflowers and when she got hungry went to one of the food concessions stands for something to eat. And look who she found working there.


They chat and Gram gives Merry a gift of Blue Flax Wildflowers.

A few days later Gram maxed her 3rd skill, logic. Cooking and handiness were the other 2 skill she maxed out.
Grams ride to work


And in conclusion.... Niel hears a terrible ruckess out on the front lawn. He goes outside to find a woman a woman screaming because she's on fire.

Being the capable person he is he put her out.
