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.

      Imo, her teeth, hair, and bones must be so fragile by now.

      At least two moms of mega families (11 each? I can't remember) discussed on this forum, Jaynee Lockwood and Nicole Naugler,  have had all of their teeth extracted. It takes a lot to grow babies and this is what happens when you don't let your body recover, possibly don't have the best nutrition and zero regular dental care.  

      Jaynee would probably have had 13 - 15, but she ended up requiring a hysterectomy; don't recall the details. 

      Nicole and Joe, supposedly, stopped having sexy time, but at least Nicole has not had another pregnancy since the one that ended in a still birth.   If Joe had two brain cells still capable of synapse, he'd get his tube tied.  I'm gonna guess he'll get another woman pregnant, because that would be so perfectly on-brand for a Naugler.

      Gary was live from the truck, at "almost noontime, amen - the day, tell ya raht now, don't take long for tahm to come 'n' go, amen? 11:35, took mah wahf up here to see her family amen the kids praise the Lord."

      I wonder if that means that Becky had a visit with her kids - hard to say, with Gary's babble.

      Gary's important and unique message is interspersed with loud directions from his GPS.

      Sunday's coming, and you'd better go to church, "what God says is a whole lot more important than what Governor whoever says."

      The church, of course, must be King James only, and this spew follows:

      "Some people believe that's there's uh more than one Bahble, well, ah'm glad God didn't need all them thangs, amen? Ah'm glad God knew what He wrote, and how He wrote it, and how He had the English-speakin' people to write it for the English-speakin' people, amen, ah know that, uh, uh, Spanish people have to have a little bit different 'n' ah understand that the uh Filipinos and the different ones 'n' ah'm gonna tell ya - for the English-speakin' people, there's only one Bahble, 'n' that one Bahble tells us to go ye in all the world, ah'm not Calvinism, ah don't believe that mess, ah don't have no kinda points in the Calvinism, ah just believe the book, ah believe what God said. God said to go tell 'em. AMEN!"

      Also, if you don't die and the Rapture doesn't come by tomorrow morning, go to church, unless you wake up tomorrow with Covid-19, in which case you should stay home and watch church on Facebook (WATCH IT, don't just turn it on!). And if you are afraid to go out, get rid of your TV. Might as well get rid of the TV anyway, because "sodomy's takin' everything!"

      Have I mentioned that Gary thinks you should go to church?

      They didn't ask Gary to preach at the camp meeting, so I guess he needed to feed his addiction and do some preachifyin' in the Church of Henry Ford.

      No snark intended, but does Jill know who RBG is?  I mean I know she knows she was a SC Justice,  but does she grasp what she stood for?

      Jill’s post was a re-post from Republican Senator John Boozman from Arkansas. I think some Republicans are publicly “taking the high road” by offering condolences while privately feeling gleeful about their potential opportunity to replace her.

      I have to assume yes, and especially by now. Posting about her like that at all, especially using a sort of nickname like her initials, to me signals some familiarity beyond just what her job was. And after about 13 hours of that post being in her stories I bet she’s gotten lots of messages from “concerned conservatives” about it, so if she didn’t know then she knows now. But the post remains up..

      Yeah, that divorce and re-marriage is worse that murder is all sort of fucked-up.
