Comic Summer: Post 2.12

SimNaNo Entry #10

Welcome back to the Comic’s. The heir poll’s are closed and it was a VERY close and tight race for heir. So before we get too far let’s take the time to share who is the newest heir for the challenge.

So who is it???












That’s right, your vote is Rye! That means we will have the first male heir of this challenge, and he is also the last heir since his kids will only need to turn YA. Congrats to Rye, and it was a super close race! Here is the chart for how this all turned out.

I didn’t end up voting in this poll as my vote would have likely tied it back up. It went back and forth the entire length of the poll between the two before Rye finally ended up on top by your votes right before the poll ended. My vote also went back and forth between Lily and Rye during the poll, so I’m happy with the choice, and excited to see how our first male heir does. Now that we know who is taking over let’s check in on the family.

Generation One Requirements

  • IL: Complete a Nature aspiration
  • JA: Go to Selvadorada to find a spouse
  • JA: Build a relic and use it on someone outside of the family
  • RoM: Become a spellcaster
  • FS: Write a Non-Fiction novel

  • IL: Keep Sulani clean (ongoing)
  • IL: Complete Buried Treasure collection (ongoing)
  • IL: Complete Seashell collection (ongoing)
  • JA: Complete Ancient Artifact collection (ongoing)
  • RoM: Win a duel against all 3 sages (ongoing)

  • Have 3 pregnancies each generation (6 of 9)
  • Workaholics (3 of 10 careers topped)
  • Tricks of the Trade (14 of 40 skills mastered)
  • Aspirational Family (12 of 30 aspirations competed)

We have at least gotten through the requirements for the generation, outside of needing to take pictures of the boys once they turn into teens. For now, however, let’s see how it’s going with the kids.

So we start with Oceana, who, now that the R-twins are at least children, is ready to go out and clog up the other two drains she needs to clog and get through the mischief aspiration. So we head over to Forgotten Hollow and she starts chatting with Caleb.

Oceana is able to get drain clogged in Caleb’s house, and then whoever was living next door allowed us in and then was gone from the house so we clogged up her sink as well. That gives Oceana another milestone.

Once Oceana got home we found Petunia working on grilling, and then she set the grill on fire. She attempted to put it out, but Oceana ended up having to rush over and finish putting it out. The grill was destroyed and had to be replaced.

Oceana then got this question at her work. I had to laugh because we already live on the private island in Sulani. So Oceana doesn’t actually buy the private island, because we don’t really need it.

We took the boys down to a park so Reed could work on his Rambunctious Scamp aspiration and we were able to get that milestone completed. The girls had a lot of fun playing the “sea monster” for the boys once in a while.

Lily has gotten to the point on guitar where she can write a guitar song and so she starts working on that. This will get us through 2 of the 4 songs needed for her milestone. I’m trying to decide for sure how much to do with her.

Then we get notice that Blossom gets married to her baby daddy, Derrick. He might not be the most handsome sim in my opinion, but good for Blossom.

Fabiana has breakfast with her youngest three, and the only 3 children who are genetically part of her. That means these are the three that need to max skills or get A’s in high school for her.

Lavender finally finished up the rocket and she starts taking it out for space missions. I love watching it take off from the roof. You would think it wouldn’t work great, but hey, #simslogic. It also makes for a cool picture, in my opinion.

Rye works on becoming best friends with Reed and once they become best friends he’s moved through that milestone. I love twins for this, it’s super easy for them to become friends.

Lily has completed writing a song for the guitar and has moved on to working on the violin. Lily is working hard on the instruments and is currently up to level 9 in both the piano and violin.

Olive finally maxes out the fitness skill while out diving for buried treasure. That gives us another skill down, but there are still so many more to go, but we have some time before Rye can become heir.

I, apparently, completely missed the picture of Oceana maxing the Tech Guru career, but she did get that final promotion and left it to head into the Entertainment career. I considered having Lily head into that career, but if I want Oceana to get through Joke Star, she needs to go into the Comedian branch.

While Lily works on writing the song she needs to do for the violin, and Oceana works on building up guitar for the entertainment job, Lavender starts upgrading things, starting with the game mat. She needs to upgrade 5 things for Nerd Brain, so after the game pad she always add Bidet’s to all the toilets in the house.

Rye is needing to make friends with 2 adults. Luckily Aunt Orca came by, as did some of the neighbors this night, and so with pictures building, Rye becomes friends with both his aunt, and this neighbor.

Book is hoping on the baby train and starting to grow her family with husband Aubrey Call. It will be fun to see what the baby is when it’s finally born.

After finishing up with the song on the violin it’s basically time to move onto the pipe organ, however, I don’t have all the room in the world to put instruments, so I decide to have Lily sit down at the piano again. She was finally allowed to sleep after the violin song was done.

Finally Lily maxed out the piano. That is another skill down, which is great, and Lily is at level 9 on both guitar and violin right now after writing the songs for.

We go ahead and sell the piano and buy a little pipe organ which Lily gets up from a nap and heads up to play. She has been tied to instruments for days, but is moving her way quickly up the skill thanks too plenty of potions of plentiful needs, which we keep a cauldron for of all the time.

Because Rye still needs to make friends with 2 other children. Since Orca has a couple of kids we decide to head over to her house with her husband so Rye can start to make friends. When we arrive Rose, Orca’s youngest daughter, is outside, and so Rye starts to make friends with her.

Inside Rye find Misty, Orca’s daughter with Rosa Pancakes, and he makes quick friends with her. The picture taking really is the only way to go for this making friends piece I think.

Orca and her sister-in-law are in the house now and Rye finalizing friendships with both of them so he has locked in the adult friendships. Now he needs to finish up friends with kids. He’s got two right now.

With this picture I announce that Lavender has completed the Rocket Science skill. She worked on updating the rocket and took multiple trips to space, although she has not finished upgrading the rocket.

That, however, is where we are going to call this update completed. With Rye being our heir we have at least two more updates before he is able to take over for this challenge, and hopefully we have more skills maxed, aspirations completed, and careers finished. This has been a successful generation so far and I’m excited to see how Rye does when he takes over.

I have been playing sims since TS1 and even played a little bit of the PS2 version and the mobile versions over time. Once I discovered challenges for TS2 I never looked back. I love the sims, the families I've been able to make, and play through the years and connecting with people about them. I work from home doing Salesforce Data Validation for my company, have 2 cats I adore and have a million hobbies I feel like I will never have time to completely explore.

  1. Musical instruments, the reason I’m grateful you can customise the in game sounds. Well done in working through them all so quickly.

    Do you think you can have the whole challenge tied up by the end of the month?

    1. I was going to shoot for that, but I don’t know that I can. I think it will be Aug before it’s done at this point. Yes, the early musical sounds are pretty rough, especially on the violin and guitar. The Organ and Piano I don’t find that bad, but I tend to play with the sound pretty quietly anyway.
