RIP Marcus and Sammie....will they be controllable too?

Wow...Clementine (love the name!) is gorgeous!

So were your urns there before the last patch? Is this due to the patch?

Edit: Wow. Look at all those paintings or are they photos?

Have not decided if any other ghosts will be controllable.
The Urns were fine until I did a refresh for a problem with another save. Not sure if that is the reason.
Those are all photos with the majority done by Marcus.

Time goes ZipDash   giggle 

Had an update ready but when I hit the Send button it timed out rant 

Meet Grayson Short Generation Five  Geek Clumsy Business Savvy
He completed 3 of the 4 child aspirations. Social Butterfly is difficult at best due to lack of children to befriend. He did get to level 10 of all child skills and gained a point in Charisma and 2 in Video gaming.

Not getting to the top of any career so far is maddening. Rolling Eyes There is just not enough time. scratch
There also have been Zero abductions so far which makes me sad. I was hoping to have a touch of Alien DNA to add to the bloodline. I even added a few Aliens to some of the existing households and have my family Stargazing and Cloud gazing like crazy.
Not even a few trips to Sixam (via upgraded Rocket ship) has attracted any Aliens to my lot. Oh well *LeSigh*

Decided to try a GTW Career for Grayson. He signed up for Law Enforcement with his first shift starting in three days!?!
Come on game ... I am on a tight schedule here!

Me either! They would make me so sad. Especially since I'm an overachiever and want my Sims to fulfill every goal set for them!

rant rant rant

That pretty Family Tree I posted above showed all five generations straight down the line from Randall to Grayson.
I have not closed the game but have been pausing and periodically saving my progress. Well now it has been torn asunder!!!
Grayson shows his Mother Clementine but not his Father. Clementine shows two blank placeholders where her parents should be.
And Founder Randall Short shows no connection to anyone! Bada ... no placeholders ... Nuthin!!!

Oh nooooooo! No Suspect
Uck, I have heard that the Genealogy trees have issues, especially when travelling anywhere. And there is something about the culling of dead Sims when the game is generating new townspeople. That sucks so much, EQ! But good thing you have a detailed record of the family!

*Pout*
Guess no one will ever be able to achieve this goal.

And my Urns with Sammie (Gen 2) and Marcus (Gen 3) are blank except for the Epitaph.
They were pretty regular visitors too.

I'm so sorry! That's so sucky!!! And yeah, apparently, someone has created a 'No More Culling' mod to stop distantly-related Sims from disappearing. There is a 180 Sim limit in The Sims 4, and this mod basically takes away that limit so that you don' t lose your ancestry or any random townies that you've met and befriended.

No More Culling Mod
There is also a "Get Town Population" mod.

There was a Simmer who reached the 100 generations achievement. I think she may forever be the only one. Sad She said it took her a month, the family tree didn't keep up correctly, and she couldn't do any traveling. But she might have also had mods in place to stop the glitches.

Have been Mod free in Sims4 so far. I was really shocked that the family was all discombobulated like that during the same play session. My theory was that maybe the Family Tree was connected to Cache files somehow. I rarely play multi-generational families past the 5th generation. I just was hoping to get to 10 generations by playing on Short life span. At least I will know I did it even if the game gets stupid.

On another note ...  Clementine had completed the Bodybuilder Aspiration and was still going strong for several days after her life would have ended. But end it did... about two days before Robin Grayson's Teen birthday.
She earned the title Celebrity Bodybuilder LVL 9 of her career before she retired.

This shadowy figure lurks nearby no matter where my family goes. He also is frequently spotted fishing on the shore across from the Short residence.
