Welcome back to the longest generation in my simming history. It has had one post in each of the following years: 2016, 2017, 2018, and 2019. The goal is to get done before we have to have one in 2020.
Category: Generation 5: Pistachio
Well, my once a year posting continues on. Although it has not actually been 365 days yet, more like 333.
Last chapter had the, “It’s been over a year…” introduction. Not a single thing has changed, so you can go head and read that chapter again to figure out what the hell is going on.
I mentioned putting in Shimrod’s Unlimited Adventures, which didn’t help too much. So, I just deleted all the world files for traveling.
Misty is sent back to China where she finds new people and all the tombs have finally reset.
Just doing a couple of random things and then completing the quest for the old man puts her to Visa 2.
Off she goes to see another person just to make sure we continue to get new quests.
And it’s official.
A quick check shows that she needs to head to France and do 4 tombs there.
Back home, waiting down the timer, Key Lime has her birthday.
Yes, Watermelon is still hanging around.
Key Lime is completely human with a tiny bit of alien. She is not a fairy or a genie sadly. She looks the same as she did as a toddler really. Her traits suck, but since she is going the business track (track b), it shouldn’t affect her later on either.
Everyone heads to France for 21 days of “fun”.
Misty immediately starts adventuring.
Key Lime thwarts every attempt at learning anything..but not for long.
Misty, on the other hand, is doing her job nicely.
Key Lime: Screw learning logic and painting. I want out of here!
Misty returns the baseball for the 3rd time in a row. I see where Shimrod’s mod may have a downfall.
She eventually does find something new to do.
She even adds a new gnome to the collection.
….several days later…
Severely crispy due to an electrified force field, Misty completes another tomb.
Yeah, that one.
And she does this.
In the middle of night on the 6th day, we find Key Lime splitting her time. She paints two paintings, discovers a potion (or blows herself up) and then goes and paints two more paintings.
She is currently level 6 logic and level 7 painting (because explosions are good). She has discovered six potions, for an average of one a day and one or two explosions.
Pistachio is learning about science. She is level 8 just by researching it.
Watermelon is practicing the Laser Rhythm a Con and is about 1/4 through level 9. She wants to max this thing, so they might just do that before leaving. I can’t foresee anyone wanting to actually stay in France for another 15 days.
They don’t head straight home after all. Misty spends a few days out collecting gems. The family go ahead and keep skilling.
Watermelon heads on to the drums.
Pistachio and Key Lime are still working on their logic/science. As you can see, they are almost neck in neck for level 10.
So, now that that’s out of the way..
Misty takes up Martial Arts and Watermelon continues to bang away at the drums. Key Lime just sort of thinks about life for a bit.
Then decides to take up fishing.
Watermelon angrily sits down to play some chess.
Watermelon is really good at getting some watchers. Sometimes they stay until they are starving, but mostly they just pee themselves and then run off, just to come back a few minutes later.
With the drums done, Watermelon takes a break from learning instruments.
Especially now that her audience is as exhausted as she is.
With 3 Motive Mobiles and a Moodlet Manager, it’s time to take on the jogging skill challenges.
They hit all corners of France.
And more often than not, they find a way to thwart any and all attempts at jogging.
To the point that Misty and Pistachio somehow got trapped right there and decided to spend hours flirting.
But, I do win in the end.
They still have a few days left, but I am pretty sure it’s time to leave France. I’m bored as hell now.
So, I just moved out of my house and went 1,800 miles away. It took over a month to get settled and another month to get in the groove of working out of the house full time for the first time in 20 years (I do still do transcription on my days off), so I normally go to work, come home and drop into bed. I’m too old for this shit. I did just past my one month anniversary at work and still have 60 days of probation to go.
I did start off on the other end of town, but the place was too big for me and too far from work, so now I rent my aunt’s vacation house for the next year. It’s now 6 minutes from work (instead of the 40 minutes it was last month). I am now down to $20 in fuel a week instead of $150. So, big time savings is good. So, now that my stress levels are down, I am so hoping to get more involved in my games. I work 10 am to 6 pm, so you would think I would have a decent schedule going already. Maybe next week.
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.
After many, many months, we are back! For how long? Who the hell knows.
Last time Pistachio and Lime went to University, they both found love, just not with each other, and they got a new house. The Generation 5 spouse, Misty, has a WA LTW, so there was travelling and more is to be on the horizon.
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.
