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?

      You would think so @JordynDarby5 but since he is male, he is always right, and it will be Satan's fault or women's fault, you know they have tested him and he has resisted the temptation or they were lying or so. Its always someone else fault with these people

      The scary stuff is that even if you tell these people, that is all fake, that is not possible for various reason like there is no basement on the place, or that they cannot run child traffic because x, y, z they will still insist that you are lying or that you genuinely believe the wrong thing because they know! Scary for real

      Business Insider article about the Wayfair conspiracy and Wayfair’s response...

      https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.businessinsider.com/wayfair-denies-sex-trafficking-claims-involving-expensive-cabinets-2020-7%3famp

      The conspiracy is mind bogglingly stupid and completely baseless.  

      It’s scary how the internet gives these beyond-crazy-conspiracy nuts such a loud platform.  It’s truly troubling how they can so easily share & encourage legit craziness.  Terrifying.

      So Carlin posted pics of Joy's baby shower, and amidst the caption was this:
      "God is doing great things in and through you guys!"

      What is God doing through them? Are they helping people in any way? What are they doing besides flipping houses (for profit) and having kids? Are they volunteering? Donating money? I know they have that weird medic thing, but it seemed pretty sketch and I'm not sure if Austin is part of it... and even if so, did they help anyone, or did they just flash their fake badges and pose for Instagram pics?

      To the bolded: According to them, God is doing a lot of work through them, by them bring anti-abortion, so they are saving many lives by being against abortion. 

      I would think. 

      In terms of actually doing God's work, I don't think they are doing much.

      It’s horrible and dangerous and people I know have gotten death threats from it. It’s fake to the hugest extent. 
       

      Basically they think a child sex trafficking ring was run out of the basement of a pizza restaurant in DC. I’ve been there. I don’t even think there is a basement. 

      Nope, the building doesn't even have a basement.  A few years ago there was a guy who was pulled over in his car.  Turns out he was armed and about to storm the pizza place to break up the child trafficking ring and free the kids from the basement.  This stuff is so dangerous.
