The Whittakers Part 3: Cones of Shame

Sign in to follow this  


The Whittakers have a pretty big garden, and I've got a few catnip plants (you can't plant catnip in previous iterations of The Sims, only catnip toys). Here's Julia feeding Olly some homegrown catnip.


I decided it was time to get the cats spayed/neutered. Lily was first up! She went into a special machine to have it done.


She came out with a cone of shame. Poor kitty. 


Thankfully the cone didn't last long! Little James decided he wanted to pet the cute kitty.

(You can see the rocket that Julia is building in the garden).


One thing I don't like about Sims 4 is how a female Sim doesn't age whilst pregnant. I have no idea why this is. Julia and Mark were originally the same age, but now Julia's three days younger. I wanted James to have a sibling, so I adopted a baby girl, Maddie. It was also 'Spooky Day' (a festival I created to be an equivalent to Halloween), hence Mark's costume. Luckily Maddie didn't seem to be too upset by it!


James wore his own little costume too! 


I wanted to get the other cats neutered the day Lily got done, but the vets was running a bit slow and it got late. So, I took the others back a few days later. I noticed this bizarre-looking blue dog with what looks like smoke or steam above it... it later looked normal, so I can only assume that this is some weird Sims illness.


In fact, here's the dog looking normal! Plus Olly with his cone of shame.


Here's Maddie as a toddler. She looks so pretty!


Mm, late night chicken nuggets!


The kids are sharing a room for now. I might expand the house a bit when they're older to give them their own spaces.


One HarvestFest tradition is the appearance of gnomes in the house. Mark tried to appease this one with pie... no dice. You have to give them the right gift or they're not happy. It ended up that *all* the gnomes were displeased so I just sold them haha. 


Olly ran away again. I don't know why he's run away twice, I make sure I look after them both properly! Maybe it just happens sometimes for no real reason.


Mmm, Grand Meal time! You get a choice of Grand Meals to make. I chose a turkey one. This also happened to be the first time that Julia and Mark sat down for a meal together!


I love that toddlers can grab their own portion of a group meal in Sims 4. It's so convenient!


Playtime with Daddy!

If you don't mind add-ons in your game Mc Command Centre (https://deaderpool-mccc.com/#/) allows for pregnancy aging (you will need to turn on the setting).  You can also adjust maximum household size with it if you wanted to.

Ooh that’s something to look into! I’ve considered mods before but never been sure how to install them (I looked into installing some of the NRAAS mods for Sims 3 but never quite understood the instructions). My brother is quite a techy person and is knowledgeable about that kind of thing so when he comes home for the Christmas holidays I’ll get him to help.

Assuming your on Windows, go to your documents folder, then the following folders (divided by the '->') Electronic Arts -> The Sims 4.  If there is folder named 'Mods' then navigate to that, otherwise create a folder named 'Mods' (right-click -> create folder) and navigate to it.  If a file named 'Resoruce.cfg' (it may show up in your window as 'Resource' then the 'Type' is 'CFG File') doesn't exist open notepad and place the lines between the = in it.


Priority 500
PackedFile *.package
PackedFile */*.package
PackedFile */*/*.package
PackedFile */*/*/*.package
PackedFile */*/*/*/*.package
PackedFile */*/*/*/*/*.package



In Notepad select 'File' -> 'Save As'.  Select 'Save as type' of 'All Files (*.*)' in the Mods directory.  This should show up in the mods directory as a  file of type CFG File.  If it shows up as a TEXT file then you have forgotten to select the All Files.

Download the MC Command Centre Mod and navigate to wherever you downloaded it to.  Right Click on the zip file and select 'Extract All'.  Browse to the Mods directory (for me this is at C:\Users\Owner\Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4\Mods) and click 'Extract'.

Open The Sims 4, in the top right click the '...' and navigate to 'Game Options' -> 'Other'.  Check the two checkboxes for 'Enable Custom Content and Mods' and 'Script Mods Allowed'.  After restarting The Sims 4 and opening a game you should see a notification that has 'Welcome to MC Command Centre - Version X.X.X'.

If you left-click individual sims you can find some settings.  Otherwise if your house has a computer you can use that to find more settings.  The more settings can also be found by starting the cheats engine (Ctrl+C) and typing 'mc_settings'.

After new patches  are installed it generally disables mods again (it has a popup notification).  If this happens I would go check the MC Command Centre website and see if it has been updated.  If so then download the updated version and overwrite the files in your Mods directory.

A resource that has some pics for setting up mods may be:


If that doesn't help, or you need clarification feel free to ask, or wait until you see your brother.

      Correct. That picture is part of Turner Farm. Ashlawn is next to it. She also has a gated entrance but you can see the house from the road. 

      The subdivision is very much coming to fruition. The streetlight has been installed and the homes are being built. Some of them will be done in the next six months if not sooner. 

      Thank you for this information, much appreciated!

      Sorry to be the negative one, but my predictions are not that happy.

      JB/Michelle: content elderly life. Money for healthcare, a maid, etc. JB controlling the family money. Lots of legal problems and financial arguments between their children when both JB and Michelle will die.

      Josh and Anna: unhappy life. Never divorce. Never had a good job again. Lots of passive agressive situations.

      Jana: maybe married. Very fundie SAHM. Not a lot of children (because her age), homeschooling. 

      JD: content. Not a big quiver. Abbie SAHM, never will be a nurse again. She would probably regret quitting her career.

      Jill: divorced and remarried? For some reason I see her taking the most shocking decisions. Working or volunteering. 4 kids, maybe at school.

      Jessa: still a SAHM. A bit boring life. 4 or 5 kids. Homeschooling.

      Jinger: a wannabe preacher wife mom of 2. Kids at school. Addicted to coffee and to pills to sleep. A 50's typical suburbs housewife.

      Joseph: 7 kids. Happy but overwhelmed. Working hard, maybe with Kendra's family. Even living near them. Homeschooling awfully!!!

      Josiah: Lauren left him. He eats junk food with Josh and talk crap about her former wife. She married a Christian doctor. 2 kids, maybe 3.

      Joy: content. Working part time with her husband. 3 children. Homeschooling awfully!!! 

      Howler monkeys... Maybe some of them will go to college. Another one will be a black sheep, I have no doubt. 

      Johanna: forced courtship. Unhappy.

      Jennifer: RUNAWAY. Maybe with Jill. 

      Jordyn. Maybe college? (Following Jessa's advice?). Maybe a real job?

      Josie. Waiting for the Prince Charming.

      6First of all, I don't see the show ending anytime soon unless there's another major scandal.  I think the focus of the show will gradually shift to the younger girls, and that will keep the show going for at least 10 years.  The older girls is what kept 19KAC going.

      I'm not going to make predictions for everyone, just these couples.  They seem to have have actual jobs/skills that will make it possible to live outside of Duggarland.

      JD/Abbie:  Owns a flight school with Josiah.  Abbie wnursing home.  He and Abbie have 2 kids in public school.

      Jill/Derick:  They have 3 kids in Christian school.  Derick has his own law practice that works for various conservative Christian groups and right-wing groups.  Jill gets it together and becomes a reasonably good social media influencer and maybe works with cousin Amy.

      Jinger/Jeremy:  They stay in CA, and Jeremy becomes a pastor of a megachurch and small time televangelist.  Jinger is in the background being the perfect preacher's wife perhaps leading  a womens' group or charity.  They maybe have 2 kids in Christian school.

      Joy/Austin:  They gradually take over Ft. Rock.  Maybe Austin works for JD part time as well.  They maybe have 3 kids homeschooling.

      Josiah/Lauren:  Owns a flight school with JD.  They have 3 kids.  Lauren is a SAHM homeschooling doing some MLM.

      The rest I see still relying on JB or working with their older brothers.  I also don't see any of the Duggars having kids in the double digits.  When the show ends, the Lord is going to lay it on some hearts to stop breeding.

      Is that baby Anna Duggar they're holding?

      IIRC she's the fifth child, so yeah - that's probably Anna.

      Glad to hear that the baby seems to be healthy and I really wish that NR-Anna gets all the support and that her treatments work. 

      I don't like the Maxwells one bit, but I am really happy that they are a family that does support modern medicine.
