Same Game, Different Laptop: The Whittakers

So my laptop went stupid, again. I think the battery needs replacing.

My mum kindly lent me her laptop (which she doesn't really use) and I downloaded Origin/Sims 4.

My first port of call was to create the Whittakers! The little family consists of Mark and Julia and their kitten, Lily, who's a calico.

Julia is a Nerd Brain, which involves becoming very good at Logic and Handiness. She also enjoys video games!

But where's Lily....?

She's so teeny! Unlike in Sims 2 and Sims 3 Pets, you can create a kitten in CAS. You could adopt a kitten in 2 and 3, but not create one yourself.

Just like with Vincent Powell, Mark is a wannabe chef.

They bought Lily a comfy bed... but she's a cat, so she's sleeping outdoors. At least it's on grass rather than hard concrete...

Off to work as an astronaut!

Finally, Lily's sleeping in her cat bed...

Ta da! She's a big girl now!

Uh oh, Lily started eating the vegetable dumplings...

The Whittakers live in Willow Creek. Their home's Lot Traits are Chef's Kitchen, Great Soil (helps with Gardening) and Science Lair (Logic and Rocket Science).

This bizarre-looking contraption is a cupcake machine, although it can also produce various other baked goods with the Baking skill (Cooking skill is for the cupcakes, and the Baking skill produces stuff like doughnuts, muffins and tarts).

Mmm, lemon gelato...

Cats and their choice of sleeping spots...

Lily started randomly meowing, with hearts round her. After a quick google, it turned out she was in heat. This is also new to Sims 4. You also have the option of getting your cats spayed/neutered... I haven't got round to that yet.

So, they adopted Olly! And it seems like the two cats got on well! No kittens appeared; I have no idea if this screenshot captured mating or not.

Aside from the usual festivals (Love Day, Harvest Fest, Winter Fest, New Years) you also get random holidays pop up. The first random holiday was Season Premiere Day, which I've not had before. The show was called Game of Llamas (a lot of the books Sims can read have got titles that reference pop culture, eg Lord of the Swings, Darley Porter and the Basement of Shadows by U.K. Englishlady :laughing-rollingyellow:and The Bladder Games, among others).

Both Mark and Julia were working on Love Day, so they had to wait until late to get their traditions in (each holiday has various traditions, and you can get various moodlets depending on how many you complete).

Which expansion packs do you have? I love building houses in the sims 4 (and not really having the mood to actually play rn...) and if you'd like I could make you something :chu:

Expansions: Seasons, Cats and Dogs, City Living, Get to Work.

I also have various game/stuff packs: My First Pet Stuff, Parenthood, Dine Out, Toddler Stuff, Backyard Stuff, Kids Room Stuff, Spooky Stuff, Outdoor Retreat, Cool Kitchen Stuff, Holiday Celebration Stuff. 

A house build would be awesome! I'm not much of an architect when it comes to The Sims.  :text-thankyouyellow:

I don't have many of those game/stuff packs, but I'll whip out something! I'll leave enough room for you to add your own things. I always use bb.moveobjects too, and playtest my builds to make sure no sim gets stuck... hahaha. How many bedrooms (and beds) do you want and is there a budget?

      Actually the christmas decorations didn't bother me. Because It could also be that, their whole family was gone for christmas, it was extremely stressful, so maybe they wanted to enjoy them a while longer then other people would have because they didn't get to during the season. I know my dad is doing this this year because he and my mom are splitting up and this year my mom, sister, and I are going to be visiting my mom's family during christmas, and my sister and I won't see my dad until after. 

      Oh P-n-B, that sounds tough for your family. I'm sorry.

      Childfree-by-choice here (though quite a few of my friends have had babies, whom I've mostly enjoyed in small-to-medium doses, and have often gone out of my way to help with), and I've never heard of "back birth" before. 

      Why is it so much more painful? (Serious question, not snark...I'm just kinda afraid to google it...)

      I appreciate hearing birth stories; it's not something I ever want to experience firsthand, but it still interests me, and the resilience and strength of you mommas is amazing.

      PS - totally unrelated, but seeing @mango_fandango's name reminded me: I was in Michael's craft store the other day, and next to the checkout line was a display of Beanie Babies. One was a wee guinea pig!! who was tri-colored, and I would have gotten a photo for you but my phone battery died!

      It was really cute, though. If I knew of some way to get it to you without asking for your personal info, I would have! (I forget our other piggie lover here - will you please tag her?)

      She spelled it "write"?  Sorry the irony was irresistible.   

      Ha ha, that made me laugh, too! ( @Perrierwithlemon, just teasing you! 😺 )

      I thought that Olivia’s surprise birthday party for Mariah was controlling and manipulative. Ethan might have married his mother.

      I will say, I like that Joy gave a list of things about Austin that shows his personality. Normally fundies just talk about how their spouse is so Godly. It’s a nice post that could have been written by a non-Fundy who enjoys their spouse’s individuality and quirks. Can you imagine if it was a Maxwell writing that post? We would learn how he likes his coffee and that he has read the Bible 500 times in his lifetime because it’s the only book he has read.
