So, last time, we moved to Isla Paradiso, brought in Teodor Medina and although his family tree said he had a kid, Palmira, she didn't turn up.  However, a recover missing sims operation later and she turned up.

Welcome to a future of babysitting.

Welcome to a future of babysitting.

The Dayes couldn’t get into the future, so when the portal thingy arrived on the Knights’ boat, I couldn’t resist.

Screenshot-394

To the future, Teodor!

Turns out the future, whilst pretty, was a bit boring. I guess things only happen when you get those pop-ups.

Screenshot-401

Speaking of happening, the kittens all grew up and I still don’t remember which is which.

Screenshot-402

Screenshot-403

Screenshot-404

I do know we kept Oblong to be the heir, though.  Pretty sure he’s the bottom one.

Screenshot-409

Baby time! Teodor gave birth first. To our only boy…

Mars Bar…

Screenshot-410

… and two little girls…

Button Moon…

…and Voyager.

Screenshot-411

Poor Palmira got to age up…

Screenshot-413

…and was immediately set to work.

Screenshot-416

Teodor wants to scuba dive for his LTW, so he got right on to it.

Screenshot-417

He looked like he was drowning so I told him to come back in.

Screenshot-418

But instead he drowned in the carpet.

Screenshot-422

I think this may be the first accidental death in this legacy.

Screenshot-423

Idiot.

Screenshot-424

Come on you, no sleeping. You’ve got three babies to care for and you still have to give birth.

Screenshot-431

There we go.

Astrid…

Zoom-Lolly

…and Zoom make this a four girl, one boy generation.

Screenshot-434

Life on the houseboat was sort of fun at first.

Screenshot-437

We found an island.

Screenshot-438

A babysitter came over while Pacer Mint took a water taxi around our island.

Screenshot-440

She smelled the flowers.

Screenshot-441

And it rained.

Screenshot-427

We got a new cat, Ice Cube, to mate with Oblong.

Screenshot-432

And it rained.

Screenshot-442

The kids became toddlers – Mars Bar

Screenshot-453

Button Moon

Screenshot-445

Voyager

Screenshot-452

Zoom

Screenshot-450

Screenshot-443

Astrid

Screenshot-446

And Palmira got to be a teen

Screenshot-458

Who immediately got put on childcare duties

Screenshot-456

As did the maid.

Screenshot-444

And it rained some more.

Screenshot-455

Living on a houseboat is annoying when it rains – so much of it is outdoors.

Screenshot-448

The second university mascot turning up should have been a sign something was wrong.

Screenshot-460

Oblong and Ice Cube produced a litter of kitties.

Screenshot-476

Again, I am rubbish at which is which, but there are four of them…

Screenshot-478

Screenshot-466

Screenshot-477

Screenshot-464

Their names are:

Looper

Dot Allison

A Perfect Circle

…and The Ink Spots

Screenshot-461

Awwww.

Screenshot-470

Kiddies age up time!

Screenshot-469

Astrid

Screenshot-463

Voyager

Screenshot-479

Zoom

Screenshot-480

Button Moon

Screenshot-936

And Mars Bar

Screenshot-481

I think they were super-cute kids, so prepare for picspam…

Screenshot-965

Super adorable. And yes, Button Moon always does look a bit mardy.

Screenshot-973

You may have spotted a little something during that picspam.

Screenshot-978

‘Hooray! No more house boat for us!’

Screenshot-977

The houseboat save kept freezing. After hours and hours of attempting to solve it, I gave in and we started again in Sunlit Tides.

Screenshot-974

Screenshot-975

Screenshot-976

Screenshot-969

Screenshot-968

Which is just the prettiest.

Screenshot-970

Screenshot-972

Screenshot-971

Its residents aren’t too bad, I suppose.

Screenshot-983

Pacer Mint got old…

Screenshot-982

…inappropriately.

Screenshot-988

Screenshot-994

Screenshot-995

Kitty picspam!

Screenshot-947

Young adult Palmira!

Screenshot-987

Despite never having attended a school in her life, Palmira graduated.

Screenshot-992

It rained.

Screenshot-990

I love that Sunlit Tides has different rabbit holes.

Screenshot-991

And random singagrams.

Screenshot-997

Sooo pretty.

Screenshot-1001

I even let Palmira half-heartedly chat up a local.

Screenshot-1006

Screenshot-1009

Screenshot-1007

Screenshot-1038

Screenshot-1039

Screenshot-1042

I don’t know if I got them all in, but the top two are TheInkSpots and Dot Allison and I’m making them joint cat heirs.

Screenshot-1016

Screenshot-1017

Screenshot-1012

Screenshot-1015

Screenshot-1014

Screenshot-1013

Screenshot-1010

Just before the kids aged up, we got a bit of townie spying done on their only day of school.

Screenshot-1011

Cheer up, Button Moon, they aren’t that bad at all.

Screenshot-1020

I see. You’re staying cheery then.

Screenshot-1021

Given this is the cosmic gen, I thought we’d make the most of make-up.

Screenshot-1022

Screenshot-1018

Screenshot-1024

Without make-up, this lot aren’t all that, but with it, they scrub up pretty well. Voyager is a bit of a Pacer face clone and Mars Bar and Button Moon look a lot like their dad. Astrid and Zoom are more of a mix, and of the two, I’m favouring Zoom.

Screenshot-1027

That’s a good bed, young lady. You could get in it.

Screenshot-1033

We invited local teens over to party/spouse hunt.

Screenshot-1036

Screenshot-1034

Screenshot-1035

Screenshot-1037

Screenshot-1031

Screenshot-1047

Some are better than others, but not a bad lot overall.

Screenshot-1046

Although we did catch a cute one flirting with a less-cute one.

Screenshot-1030

What’s up, Voyager?

‘I just… feel.. so… stuck.’

Yeah, despite getting rid of Palmira and excess cats and resetting all, we still got into a freezing loop.

Screenshot-1040

‘Haven’t we been here before?’

Yeah, we started over yet again. In a new Sunlit Tides save. The things I do for this legacy.

Screenshot-1044

We adopted a kitty. Our choice was elderly girl or girl kitten.

Screenshot-1043

This lil’ kitty is Karen O

It was only after we got her and had gotten rid of the other cats that I realised both TheInkSpots and Dot Allison were girls. So I cheated and pollinated them.

Screenshot-1045

The kids had lost all their relationships, so I sent them out around town again.

Screenshot-1050

Snowcones give cute moodlets!

Screenshot-1052

The park in Sunlit Tides isn’t as pretty as its equivalent in some other towns.

Screenshot-1054

‘Here comes the rain again.’

Screenshot-1051

‘Fantastic.’

Screenshot-1041

Random pic of Zoom because she’s so adorable.

Screenshot-1053

‘Is that the birthday chime I hear?’

Screenshot-1056

Sure is. Mars Bar is hot-headed, family oriented, excitable, clumsy and a mooch.

Screenshot-1061

His LTW is Ark Builder.

Screenshot-1057

Voyager has learned the patented Captain Picard facepalm.

Screenshot-1060

I love her so much, but she does look a lot like Pacer Mint. Her traits are: supernatural fan, brave, disciplined, excitable and unlucky. Her LTW is physical perfection.

Screenshot-1062

Button Moon aged up in the same outfit she had on as a teen.

Screenshot-1055

Her traits are: slob, athletic, heavy sleeper, artistic and… no sense of humour. You don’t say. Her LTW is vocal legend.

Screenshot-1058

Astrid is family oriented, disciplined, neat, a genius and a light sleeper. For some reason I was able to choose her final trait despite them only doing 1 day of school ever. Her LTW is surrounded by family.

Screenshot-1069

Much like her namesake, she likes to wait on everyone.

Screenshot-1064

Zoom is a vegetarian, virtuoso, perceptive slob who loves the outdoors and wants to be a CEO.

Screenshot-1071

‘Beam me up, Scotty.’

Screenshot-1075

‘No, some mistake, surely? I’m moving, aren’t I?’

Screenshot-1073

Afraid not, Zoom.

Screenshot-1074

Button Moon seems to have become a taxi driver.

Screenshot-1078

Screenshot-1080

Screenshot-1087

Screenshot-1085

Screenshot-1084

Screenshot-1083

I set up a townie party for her to meet potential mates.

Screenshot-1076

It rained.

Screenshot-1079

I fancied the look of this one.

Screenshot-1081

She didn’t.

Screenshot-1088

And this one was unemployed with bad hair.

Screenshot-1089

This one was cute…

Screenshot-1082

…but I’m not sure I want werewolves in the family and I’m assuming the tail means something in that line?

Screenshot-1092

Too many of them wear bad eyewear…

Screenshot-1093

…or look a little seedy.

Screenshot-1091

Here’s Karen O as a full-grown cat…

Screenshot-1094

Screenshot-1095

Screenshot-1096

Screenshot-1100

Screenshot-1099

Screenshot-1098

Screenshot-1097

In time for six kitties (one litter of four, one of two). Most are girls, even the ones with boys’ names.

Again, they are all a bit interchangeable to me, but their names are (along the wood theme)…

The Doors

The Carpenters

Courtney Pine

Ronnie Wood

Phil Oak-ey

Roy Wood

Screenshot-1101

Zoom rolled up a want to chat to the pretty bloke from earlier (whose name I forget).

Screenshot-1102

And they were about to try for baby… when the game crashed. Oh well. We’d saved just a couple of moments earlier, so not too bad.

Screenshot-1086

And at least when it rains all the time, you get a rainbow…

Join us next time for square/rectangle/check gen… if we can manage it, going on the stress of these past two gens!

    Wow, these gens go so fast! I get annoyed changing everyone’s clothes on a normal lifespan, don’t know how you stand it with so many kids and so quickly! But I love all the pics, and you manage to get in some normal stuff as well as the makeover ones, well done!

      Yeah, I spend more time dressing/decorating than playing I think! Thanks for following… they’re very crashy at the mo so not sure when gen 6 will be up…
