6. It’s hip to be square

]'Am I supposed to remember what on earth is going on here?'

‘Am I supposed to remember what on earth is going on here?’

Well, you are Zoom Knight, heir to the crashiest legacy in the world. Probably.

Screenshot-1498

Your duff has been upped by this fellow, Roderick Lozano.

Screenshot-1499

So I am not sure this is the most suitable recreational activity for you.

Screenshot-1504

Slightly better.

Screenshot-1505

I swear this challenge is going to be the death of me. Never did I think a legacy on ultra-fast speed could drag its feet the way this one has, but the Knights are as crashy as ever, hence our long gap between posts yet again.

Screenshot-1503

Still, I can’t get enough of the scenery in Sunlit Tides.

This is hilarious. The Knights’ money has all gone into their house. They have about 10 grand in cash, and that’s dwindling fast.

Now, if we were going on ‘most likely to die surrounded by cats’ that might be more appropriate.

Screenshot-1475

Last time we were with you, a whole bunch of kittens were born, and now the house is overrun by felines.

This last one is Phil Oakey.  The colour mix this genertion of cats is really interesting.

Screenshot-1473

I decided to make The Doors the heir

Screenshot-1468

And this is her mate, Woody Guthrie.

Screenshot-1502

It’s not just the cats who’re mating, of course. And despite all the usual efforts, we just got twins.

Chess

Screenshot-1491

And Battenburg

battenburg_cake_60878_16x9

Which should probably be spelled Battenberg, but too late now.

Screenshot-1508

And we remembered the perils of super-speedy legacies.

Screenshot-1509

I know Roderick. I didn’t want you to get old, either.

Screenshot-1512

Although I have no problem with cats getting old so we can get rid of some.

Screenshot-1511

Fortunately we’ve got Zoom pregnant again – partly to delay her ageing.

Screenshot-1625

New kitties!

Their names are:

Spin Doctors

Spinderella

And Twisted Sister.

Screenshot-1627

Screenshot-1645

Screenshot-1646

As usual, I can’t tell them apart at this stage.

Screenshot-1523

Fortunately I colour-code the kids. This is Battenburg…

Screenshot-1515

…and Chess.

Screenshot-1525

Someone decided to check out before the next baby/ies arrived… 😦

Screenshot-1490

And for some annoying reason, it was baby singular.

tartan

This is Tartan.

Screenshot-1630

With a baby and new kitties in the house, the training of the toddlers is non-existent.

Screenshot-1635

And with our game freezing every single save, we decided it was time to move again. Hello, Roaring Heights.

Screenshot-1634

And hello, more birthdays.

Screenshot-1636

Unlike the others, we have time to skill Tartan.

Screenshot-1641

Screenshot-1640

Someone is mummy’s favourite.

Screenshot-1632

Screenshot-1633

As the kids might expect, I took full advantage of their names.

Screenshot-1638

So Chess played a lot of chess

Screenshot-1643

and Battenburg baked.

Screenshot-1654

Screenshot-1655

I sent the kids out to explore the new hood.

Screenshot-1657

Which is not quite as nice as Sunlit Tides but still fairly pretty.

Screenshot-1656

They were a bit non-plussed by the tourist centre type place.

Screenshot-1658

And you would think the rollercoaster might give a moodlet or something.

Screenshot-1659

Still, there’s enough to keep them entertained.

Screenshot-1661

Even if, left on free will, they prefer homework.

Screenshot-1664

Whilst Tartan gets skilled up.

Screenshot-1734

Screenshot-1735

We spied on the townie kids, even if you can never tell how they will really turn out until they hit teens.

Screenshot-1737

Screenshot-1736

Screenshot-1739

Kittens became cats.

Screenshot-1738

They have some ace colouring going on.

Screenshot-1741

We chose Spinderella to be heir.

Screenshot-1748

And this is her mate, InspiralCarpe(ts)

Screenshot-1740

And our human kittens also grew. Here’s Tartan…

Screenshot-1750

…Chess…

Screenshot-1751

…and Battenburg.

Screenshot-1753

Meanwhile…

Screenshot-1756

Zoom got, um, zoomed up by aliens. She seemed OK though.

Screenshot-1759

I think Battenburg might be her face clone. The make-up and hair disguise it a bit, but I don’t see much of Roderick here.

Screenshot-1768

And now for another townie check…

Screenshot-1771

Could be cute with different hair.

Screenshot-1761

Reasonable.

Screenshot-1773

Nah.

Screenshot-1772

Not really.

Screenshot-1770

Could be cute if she smiled.

Screenshot-1769

As could she.

Screenshot-1777

Tartan served us well by bringing a cute friend home.

Screenshot-1766

‘Does this mean he will be the heir?’

Screenshot-1776

‘Noooo!’

Screenshot-1781

Tartan turned into a not-at-all bad-looking teen

Screenshot-1787

…who spent all day chatting up the maid when she should have been cleaning.

Screenshot-1793

Meanwhile, MOAR KITTIES.

Screenshot-1794

The one with white bits is a boy.

Called Def Leppard.

The other one is a girl

called Jungle Lion.

Screenshot-1782

The twins aged up.

Screenshot-1784

And Battenburg was sent packing for her clone-ness.

Screenshot-1786

While I waited for Tartan to grow up, Chess got a job.

Screenshot-1798

Cute magician costume! Poor Bunnicula Daye never got one of those.

Screenshot-1792

He is pretty good-looking – but the downside of him being heir is if I wait until Tartan is old enough, he’ll be ancient himself and therefore will die sooner.

Screenshot-1808

Tartan checks out the scenery…

Screenshot-1812

…and she has aged up OK.

Screenshot-1805

I still quite like this one, though.

Screenshot-1824

We interrupt mate-hunting for this piece of cute.

Screenshot-1841

Which doesn’t last long, as Jungle Lion ages up…

Screenshot-1842

…as does Def Leppard.

Screenshot-1843

I declare him the winner of the cat prettacy, being its tenth gen. It’s harder to do a prettacy with animals, they’re all a bit much of a muchness.

Screenshot-1874

Still, that won’t stop us now trying a cat uglacy with our new mate

Whitesnake.

Screenshot-1814

Tartan ages up to look quite a bit like his brother.

Screenshot-1817

He gets a kilt… and then I kick him out, as I think Chess is a bit cuter and a better mix between the two parents.

Screenshot-1818

So now we pursue Lil’ Miss Red Cheeks, whose name is Shirley Templeton.

Screenshot-1821

She is unflirty and has a boyfriend, so it might be a challenge.

Screenshot-1826

Or not.

Screenshot-1830

She is so into him.

Screenshot-1829

D’aww.

Screenshot-1832

Screenshot-1831

They both graduated.

Screenshot-1833

As did Tartan.

Screenshot-1834

Shirley was voted valedictorian. It was a beautiful event.

Screenshot-1835

And then Zoom died.

Screenshot-1839

Surrounded by her children.

Screenshot-1846

And about five other elderly townies also died.

Screenshot-1847

Shirley’s baby bump emerged and Chess aged up.

Screenshot-1849

It was the most romantic setting for star-gazing.

Screenshot-1850

And for this.

Screenshot-1853

Our first Knight wedding in a long time!

Screenshot-1840

Innit beautiful?

Screenshot-1860

Screenshot-1859

Screenshot-1861

Screenshot-1862

Screenshot-1863

A pregnant Shirley pulled some awesome dance moves to the kids’ music.

Screenshot-1864

Join us next time to see how circles and spots gen turn out!

  1. I’d forgotten how pretty Zoom was. Those boys are pretty cute too.

      She is adorable. It will be hard to get prettier despite each gen supposedly being better than the last. Uglacies are perhaps easier. Who knew?

    Will you upload your sims? They are soooo cool and beautiful!

    June 16, 2014 at 2:18 am

  3. I’m so glad you picked Chess! He was my favorite, and Shirley is pretty hilarious! And very adorable. I can’t believe you have all those cats! They’re all adorable.

      Well, we adopt out as many as we can, but there are usually about 6 at any given time… Shirley and Chess are so into each other. Despite her being unflirty, every time they’re on free will they’re being romantic and they roll up woohoo wants like nobody’s business.
