PostSubject: Playing Sims 4 by Gramcrackers   Thu Sep 18, 2014 12:34 pm

I created a Sim  Sandy Beaches to test out TS4.  When I went to the library to get a Sim to play in the new game there were only a few choices from some early Sim making.  I did find out where the others were and got them back in my library later, but I do wonder why I had to do that.  
 So Sandy move into a little house next door to the BFF household on one side of her and a nice little park on the other.  

And Sandy set about finding her way around TS4. She spent a few days learning some cooking and mechanical skills and gardening, then got a job in the Art field to get her started on her goal as a Museum curator.
She visited Sylvan glade where she couldn't harvest anything.  

She got rather spooked when seeing this.

She started fishing for a change of diet.  And actually caught something.

One of her early paintings.

Another early painting. It took me awhile to realize the paintings were rated.  I don't recall seeing anything other than Good or Excellent.
She repaired a broken pipe in her bathroom and was left with a mess.  Imagine her surprise when she found she could salvage parts for a future repair.


She moved in with the BFF household.  A good move as they had more $$ than she did.  She immediately set up shop in the activity room.

Sandy got on well with her roommates and liked them all.

There was Summer Holiday an aspiring Mixologist, Travis Scott a computer whiz and gamer, and Liberty Lee an aspiring Astronaut.
Sandy ( who gained a massive amount of weight after moving ) chatting with Summer.  Evidently this weight gain was catching because the roommates  also began gaining weight. Even Liberty who worked out every day.

Liberty deciding between reading her book or having that piece of cake.  The book, Liberty, the book!

Sandy had to admire, view, or critique paintings every day.  She painted so fast now, she viewed her own paintings rather than go to the Gallery.

Admiring another of her excellent paintings.

Something in the house was always breaking down so the roomies because quite adept at fixing the plumbing or appliances.  This time it was the stove.

Travis chatting with guest Tristan.  He followed one of the girls back from the little garden park that's behind their house.  Sims were always congregating there and much easier to access as they tended to stand around in groups chatting.  Unlike the larger park in their neighborhood where they always seem to be walking through on their way to somewhere else and disinclined to stop and chat.  Tristan marched into the house and to the fridge and helped himself to a drink Summer had prepared ( she had to make a lot of drinks every day and we saved the better ones) and sat down to chat with Travis.

Sandy Beaches and Summer Holiday .... sounds like a good pair. Laughing

Those Sims were in the promos and a LOT of people requested them in game.
You will also notice Maxis is the default search in the gallery.
The Gurus were questioned about that and it seems that was a purposeful move. 

Quote :
She visited Sylvan glade where she couldn't harvest anything.
That too seems to be intentional and happens in the community lots as well. Once visited a second trip will allow harvesting. (Thanks to Dini60 for that tidbit)

My sims have gained a lot of weight too. Adrianne made it to a celebrity chef and cooked all the time. She and the family had the inches to show for it. Laughing

Very interesting! My sim is a painter too but I the only painting that is the same (that you've posted) is the one of the two clowns. My sim has maxed the cooking and gourmet cooking skills. She's had three children and packed on the pounds. The first child aged up to teen and was very heavy also. Hmmmmmmmm....cooking skill must equal weight gain in the Sims 4 Smile

Sandys' paintings have started to repeat themselves now. She is a level 10 in painting & cooking now. All the roommates are close to level 10 in cooking, they certainly like to eat, and very high in handiness due to plumbing and appliance breakdown. More expensive or upgrading doesn't seem to make that much difference in the breaking down less often, just that the Sims are quicker at repairing. But I admit I miss a lot in keeping track of 4 Sims at once.

Lovely story.

I'm in awe how you have your sims gain so many skills. I struggle to get one of the family to a level 10 in a single skill.

3 of the 4 adults in my house just drank instalean. For some reason the fourth does not gain weight like the others. Wish I could drink that! Rolling Eyes

Had to laugh.
I don't know what caused Sandy to gain like she did. She was fine until I moved her in with the 3 BFFs. Then everyone else started to put on the lbs so I thought it was the game, maybe a glitch or push to use the workout equipment? Sandy didn't have a lot of time to work out.

Sandy and Travis chat while she works.  She has to view paintings every day so she goes to work in a good mood.  It's suppose to help with promotions.  As often as the roommates talked, Sandy couldn't keep the relationships up.  It was frustrating but mostly with the mixologist, Summer, who needed 12 friends to progress to the next job level and couldn't even keep up the friendship levels with her roomies.  (It seems better since the latest patch.)

Travis is a Champion gamer and going for the title E Sports Gamer.

One of Sandys' challenges was to have painted 8 Masterpieces.  She was selling the paintings for $$ until I realized they weren't adding up towards the goal.  She was to have kept them. pale   But she finally reached that goal.  This painting is The Girl With The Pearl Earring or one like it.

Liberty Lee is in the Space field going for astronaut  status.  A lot of funny stuff happens with space duties.  Here she is writing a book for her job.

Travis is helping with their garden. He is watering a trash plant. I think the seed came from some trash lying on the ground too long and they planted it to see what would happen.

Libertys' Telescope.

The roomies relaxing and chatting over drinks.  Summer has to make many drinks a day before she goes to her work.  They did this on their own.

Arial view of the lot.  I didn't realize I was infringing on Sandys' privacy. Surprised

Another Masterpiece. Notice the top shelf of the bookcase.  Sims were always putting something up there but a neatnick would clean up eventually.

Liberty didn't make it to her bed.  Being a Sheriff in space is very taxing.

Liberty need to patrol space every day but it took me awhile to figure out she needed a spaceship to do that.  She finally got her spaceship and had many adventures.

Summer is trying to ignore that she broke the toilet and will have to fix it and clean up the mess.

Sandy finally got to level ten Handiness and went back to Sylvian Glade to see if she could finally harvest the plants.  She could but the cherry tree had died ( it was giving off a green cloud) and she couldn't fix it.  Only view it or remove it.  Also, there wasn't any special place, that she could find, so she fished.  

The roomates all pitching in late one night to get the garden back in shape.

Travis tried his fishing at the pond in Magnolia  Park.  A change from fishing in the river.  It was a change, all right.

Awesome. Relationships are really difficult. A bit too much so at times. I had a Mixology Sim who only needed 5 friends to advance. She would get to three then the numbers would drop! Chatting on the phone or computer seem to help with Social but not with making/keeping friends.

Travis finally finds someone he gets along with well. He takes her to the only bar in town. They have a great time chatting and dancing.

I believe they fell in love.
Sandy Beaches and Guadalupe Richard finally have their wedding at Magnolia Park. It was well attended but the bartender/guest, Summer Holiday, also a roomie, had to leave for work. That almost spoiled things for them getting the Gold Wedding as no one else controllable could make the necessary drink. She came back after work and finished.( well, she was forced to return.)


The cake thing.


The wedding celebration lasted all night. Back home they borrowed Liberty Lees' spaceship for an awesome honeymoon.
(The option for using the spaceship came up twice before it hit me-too cool!)


Back to Earth.

Sandy and Guadalupe working in the garden, still on their honeymoon.

Sandy and Guadalupe stay with the roommates until they find a place to move to. Elise comes by the house often to see Travis but stays and visits even when he isn't there.

Travis and Elise have their wedding at Magnolia Park. It's well attended and everyone has a good time.





They got the Gold Achievement for their wedding too.

Sandy got over to the Grotto again to look for more digs. She found them and new plants to harvest. When she returned later on she could not harvest anything and all the digs were gone. That was a Big disappointment.

Guadalupe and Sandy were finally able to move into a place of their own. They considered moving back into Sandy's old place but found a nice little place over in the next town.

In their free time they both went digging and fishing to increase their finances. They were planning on building a house on the vacant lot next door.

Sandy painted many pictures and sold them for hundreds of $$.
