I've been playing a lot, taking not many pictures.
Thad has reached eleventh week. Here's the first wek

I.
In his first week, Thad made a few friends. most important Johnny from across the street.
Thad stayed a lot at his place.





- The first week was dedicated to collecting -




II.
An own place to sleep, that was thad's biggest wish. Granted! I got him a tent and a picnic box. He was chosen to be the first to try out the new basements. A shower and a lou are down there for more privacy.
The easel - I will start him on the artist's career -


Guess what I forgot: TRASHCAN
Oh well, Thad has to live with it this week.

- Second week: started a garden -

So excited that you decided to join the challenge
MeMeMe

I too forgot the blessed trashcan Head Desk
Olie sometimes used the public one up the street until the next Buy day when I finally remembered.
Thad is quite handsome ... I am sure he will be popular with the neighbors. Wink

Thanks EQ! I love this challenge! BigHug


Thad was created to be a Party Animal. He makes friends easily. Even talking to plants gives him more satisfaction than any of my sims before.
But no parties for Thad - too expensive! Since I don't give him much fancy stuff I figured I use landscaping plants as week and potion markers.

anyway, here's week3:

III.
The garden (Banana, Lemon, and Apple tree; Strawberry bushes)
Thad started on his career - Artist




- Third week: Thad started his career -

Thank you my friends. Madness it is yeah! A good one Big Grin

Upto now nothing really bad has happened, except that the geological council doesn't send back any chemical elements.
Are there any reports of a bug, I wonder?

For Thad it means no Curator aspiration. Again, he just will have to live with that.


IV.
I'm very pleased with Thad's willingness to meet my demands. He deserves a reward: first of all a real bed (basement). I gave him a small hut (4x5), no windows, the cheapest sotve and fridge, a cheap sink and two counters. No flooring or wallpaint. The tent went into his inventory, the picnic box stayed outside beside the front door, to serve as a seat. It was a wise move to keep the picnic box as we will see later. As lighting for the kitchen I used the light that came with his second promotion.
Two or three days into week 4 this happened:


Thad set the stove and himself on fire!
Had to send him down into the shower to extiguish himself, he would have done the firedance to its deadly end.
Of course there is no fire alarm, he had to run upstairs again and put out the fire.

After that incident Thad had to use the picnic box again for his daily granola.


- goal for week 4: build up gardening skill; I want to grow dragonfruit: graft snapdragon on strawberry Smile  -




V.
I replaced the stove and counter which had been charred in the fire.
But stove and fridge are not working anymore. They substract the money from the account but hypnotize Thad that he forgets he was supposed to cook. Evil appliances!
So it will be quickmeals from the picnic box. There is an upside to it: Thad keeps his lean without exercises. He always is a little on the hungry side.




- week 5: painting and gardening; visit to Willow Creek to take cuttings from snapdragon plants -




VI.
Here's a picture of Thad's week and potion trackers: I place them in the back of the lot.

Sorry for the night view, I always forget when its daylight.




- week 6 went with painting and gardening again -




Have fun! I have lots of it Smile

Not sure about the Curator Bug but the cooking issue is usually resolved by using Repair option in Origin Launcher.

I just completed the curator aspiration before for the last patch. I'll try and send some samples to the geo council and see if it is still working for me.

My goodness, that fire looked scary! Glad Thad survived it.

I had to use the game repair to fix the no cooking glitch a couple times in my original Rosebud save.

I accomplished the curator aspiration. Now I'm on to the author one. I thought for sure that fire would have spelled the end. So very glad he had a shower handy. You're making great progress! Keep it up! high five

Thank you ladies Smile

Today I opened my game and I tried again sending in gems.
I got into the habit of retrying when I reopen a game. And this time it really worked.
This was the third time I reopened confused  Why now?

What do we learn from that? - Never give up Horsey Horsey Horsey

Happy ?  Ecstatic ... WHEEE   Wink   HappyTrio WaveCheer Macarena 

I found a thread at EA Answers HQ
Geo Council not mailing back
One suggestion was to delete the mail box and buying a new one. You need to use the cheat bb.showhiddenobjects
*I would only try in extreme measures and be sure to save right before doing it.

Thank you EQ.
I was thinking about the mailbox, but didn't know if we could buy a new one, and if it would work if placed in a running game.
(I'm still upset the fishing hole, which they took out of the catalog and never put back in.)

Everything worked out fine for me, thanks to higher authorities.

I've got some more of Thaddeus money raking:


VII.

This week Thaddeus had to decide on the course of his career.
I didn't let him have a word in it. He needs money, so he has to paint ; which means he will do the 'Master of Real' branch.
No need to dally away time with unnecessary viewing and discussing other sim's art!





- week 7: focus on career -



- - -



VIII.

This week I caught a shot of Thad taking the anti-aging potion.


Also he grew himself a new friend.
 




- week 8 : forcing the 'Painter Extraordinaire' and the 'Freelance Botanist' aspirations. -



- - -




IX.

Achievements, achievements!







- week 9: keeping up the good work -




X.

This week I show you the inside of Thaddeus humble house.
The basement, the kitchen where the front door leads, and the living room.






He reached the top of the painter career Smile



- week 10: top of career -



- - -


XI.
Nothing interesting happened this week.
Thad is trying out new aspirations - Oh yes! The Curator aspiration is working again.
He was busy wih that.


- week 11: uneventful; working for the money -




Have fun!

Thanks for following this, ladies.
I'm surprised how well I do myself. Usually I get distracted, or my sims gets distracted on our way trough a project.
It could be that I have to deal with only one sim inthis. Not good at multitasking here. It gets me doing a lot of things but nothing acomplished.



XII.


Thaddeus paints and gardens; he also looks into different aspirations.
I stumbled over the 'Fabulously Wealthy' aspiration; clicked on it and had a run through.
I was stunned my brain never cought up with what was happening, until I got a Check the following week.
What a awesome aspiration!

- week 12: there must be a word beyond making money -



---


XIII.

Thaddeus discovered the 'Serial Romantic' aspiration.
What a find for an outgoing, cheerful sim who's been denied his Party Animal genes!
I thought one aspiration was as good as any, boy was I wrong!
Naturally he asked his bestest friend Johnny Zest on a date.
Btw: Johnny still looks this young, because in the beginning I had forgotten to change the unplayed sims to aging Head Desk


And then - spontaneously Thad proposed eeek pale
I am shocked! Have you heard of that happening ever before?


On Friday Thad got this nice interest check from the 'Fabulously Wealthy' aspiration



- week 13: happy Thad / shocked player -



---


XIV.
There's not much happening this week. Thad has two days of work, paints, and spends hours tending his garden which is now four blackberry and ten dragon fruit plants.
I told him to look into other aspirations, like in the knowledge field. He complied and ended up building himself a few planters for his garden.
But I know he didn't give up on the love aspiration.
I saw him taking his elder neighbour into the privacy of his house.Despite being engaged he asked her to be his girlfriend; that old trout was actually thrilled.

interest check



- week 14: player holding her breath on Thad's social actions -




So much for now, have fun!

So much fun this challenge. Thanks again EQ.
And thank you all for reading this applause


XV.

It's the first time any sim of mine finished the Curator aspiration.
I never managed to complete a collection. Well, this was easy this time with the Easter eggs.
I was thrilled to see how high the prices are the Simopolitan Museum pays.


I bought my sim a rocket launcher and all the pieces, but he wasn't interested in building the spaceship. Well who am I to complain as long as he keeps up the money making.



- week 3: Thaddeus is secretly looking for a third love Rolling Eyes  -



- - -


XVI.

Ok, Thad went on a date with a young woman. I think her name is Zoe.
They went to the park, and while Thad had to relieve himself somewhere, look who showed up!
Please, Johnny leave! You really don't want to know what's going on here!


Thaddeus was a little stunned to find Johnny with his date.
But he played it low and Zoe seemed to sense the tension, she went right along with the new no kissing policy.
The date ended with a silver medallion.
The day after Thad invited her over and asked her to be his girlfriend anyways; and she accepted.


- week 16: player is not amused, Thad seems happy -



- - -


XVII.

This week something strange happened. Zoe came to Thaddeus door aged up to elder; and then this:


It happened that Thad took his young again potion right the same moment time ran out for his girlfriend  pale

Anyway, he got to paint a picture of Grim:



- week 17: almost there! -






EURAKA!

17 weeks + 2 days -- 6 young again potions







Thank you all for the great fun!
