Well, it’s only been a little over a year, but we are back now. Watermelon is here. She has completed all of her objectives, completed her LTW and is now just hanging out. Advertisements
Today, we celebrate my fifth year with WordPress. This also means that the Vinson’s also are celebrating today, since they were the very first family I blogged about.
Tomorrow, The Tart Family celebrates their 5th anniversary, because you can’t always have just one family floating around.
The difference between the Vinson’s and the Tart’s are their completion dates. The Vinson’s (the first 10 generations) were completed on Nov. 22, 2014. On June 20, 2015, Vinson 2.0 got its start and is currently in the 5th generation (although it is on a small hiatus so I can concentrate on the Tart’s alone).
The Tart Finale comes tomorrow, Dec. 12, 2016. It’s been a long ride filled with laughs and glitches, insanity and sometimes the downright boring, but through it all, you all have stuck with this family and we love you.
Thank you for an amazing 5 years, from my families to yours.
Previously, there was a lot of skilling. Watermelon went on a free vacation, Lime ruined our plans and there were a lot of birthdays. We did say goodbye to Joseph. Finally, Lime and Pistachio became Young Adults.
We get our first look at 18 year old Pistachio. She gained Workaholic on her roll.
Welcome back! Last time, Pistachio and Lime became teens and went to France with Watermelon. Zachary finally went to the great beyond. Nothing else went on besides collecting and skilling. Well, nothing except the glitching inventories, that seems to be fixed now.
I mistakenly thought we would finish out this generation during the last update, but I was so very wrong. Pistachio and Lime still have 8 days to go, so let’s get that done this time.
Welcome to what should be the last Chapter of Generation 4.
Last time, Watermelon did gem cutting, cutting gems, and then cut more gems both in China and at home. Zackary and Joseph did nothing important. Pistachio aged up to child, made her IF, Lime, real and then had cake. Oh and they added Jinx (a now pregnant cat) and Marina (a hunting dog).
Pistachio rolled twice for her teen trait because the first one was lame. Her second one was no better: Family Oriented. This means she can only have one child and then beg for more. Ugh.
Welcome back! We left off with Watermelon in China. I’m actually still there in game.
I really missed these guys. So much so, that after the failed challenge, I did not play Sims 3 that much until right around April 1 (I played the hell out of Sims 2 and Sims 4 though). After almost six months off, I went back and got my Parker’s started up again and actually enjoyed playing, so I thought I would bring these guys back for two reasons. One, I mentioned first. I missed them. And two, because I am doing the Boolpropian Olympics and I get points for a legacy/challenge to get to generation 5!
We have Zackary holding Pistachio, Joseph and Watermelon. Four generations in one shot.
