6.9 – It’s a (brand new) madhouse!

I promised you an update two weeks ago but I think you are used to my flakiness by now, to put it mildly. I have a toddler and that’s my excuse for everything. You should all get one, they are very convenient! (In that particular regard. In other ways, not so much.)

But let’s continue down the path of mediocrity and foolishness.

Screenshot-1948We begin with a close-up of Griffin, our future torch-holder, just to show off his smarm.

And then it’s graduation time for Gillis, the eldest of generation 7.

Screenshot-1951It’s a crowded graduation this time. I usually find mates on the stairs after graduation in my other saves because I’m lazy, but Gillis is on his own.

Screenshot-1953He was actually valedictorian, believe it or not. And Most Likely to Offend Others. Interesting combination.

Screenshot-1954He didn’t escape the idiot cap though, but that’s fitting I suppose.

Screenshot-1956Gillis receives a seed or some other lame present from his loving mother. Naturally he is absolutely over the moon.

Gulliver, why are you holding your imaginary friend doll? Never mind.

Screenshot-1961I don’t know who that woman is, but that’s Gilda she’s holding.

Screenshot-1966And at least one of the twins were fully potty trained and so on, and I think it was Gilda, either way, +5 to me. Woop.

Screenshot-1968

Griffin: “You know what I want? A brand new house! I think we deserve a new house!”

Gillis: “Just when I’m about to move out? Not cool, bro”

Gulliver & Gorkij: *MUNCH MUNCH MUNCH MUNCH*

Screenshot-1969As a last purposeless effort before moving house, Gulliver takes out the garbage and misses the school bus. It would have been GREAT with a liiiiittle better timing.

so-i-just-missed-my-second-cake-day-50642

Needless to say.

Screenshot-1970NEW CUCKOO HOUSE! It’s purple because it’s the colour of insanity! At least I read that somewhere, so purple it is.

Screenshot-1971It’s next to the school, not that I think it will help. -__-

Screenshot-1974Also – Etta’s car (now mainly Basil’s)! And Faun’s chopper. Because she’s a rebel. LOL.

Screenshot-1972View from the back.

Screenshot-1975Bottom floor, with a TV room, kitchen and dining room to the right and a study and library to the left, and two small bathrooms behind the very large staircase.

Will the Cuckoo offspring ever use the study for studying? The answer is probably no.

Screenshot-1976Upstairs: bedrooms, two larger bathrooms, laundry, space for hobbies.

Screenshot-1979Attic room

Screenshot-1978Extra bedroom, in the future it’s for the twins.

Screenshot-1983Faun in the master bedroom, currently in her favourite colour!

Screenshot-1986Onward and downhill – Faun goes after those measly 5 points like a greyhound, but fails. Oops, SPOILER ALERT.

Screenshot-1988What, a house guest? With no party?? Quick, get the camera!

Screenshot-1989She’s actually here to meet Gulliver! That’s adorable.

13825471

Screenshot-1991However, potential romance is nipped in it’s bud by Gillis’ drumming. Sorry, love.

Screenshot-1992At least she got a free meal out of it. Perfect quality too!

Random teen: “I’m allergic to strawberries!”

Gorkij: “That would be the least of your problems if you intend to stay.”

Friendly!

“Just stating a fact.”

Screenshot-2000“I intend to replicate the shit out of that pie.”

You do that. I’m going to see if anyone’s asleep yet.

Screenshot-1997Griffin, for one.

Screenshot-1998Not sure if up early because rested or just up early.

Screenshot-2004

Great, it’s another caking. Gorkij may be the only one who gets a caking each birthday.

Screenshot-2005I guess I have a soft spot for him that no one else shares. Bummer.

Screenshot-2007Anyway, three cheers for democracy! (That’s a reference to Griffin being the future heir, if you missed it.)

Screenshot-2008Go break some hearts. And toilets.

Screenshot-2010

“Look at your brother, isn’t he dapper?”

“I don’t know, he could use a workout.”

Just because you’re ripped for absolutely no reason.

“I play the drums! It’s a solid workout!”

When are you moving out again?

Screenshot-2021Griffin prepares his watery grave.

“Actually, I’m just drawing a bath!”

A girl can dream.

Screenshot-2024

I think I just took bathroom birthday to a whole new level: it’s the Siamese Birthday!

Screenshot-2026

Gilda was fully skilled and Gisele wasn’t, so I guess that’s a + – 0 for me.

Screenshot-2030Gisele ages up first and apparently I didn’t even bother to take a screenshot of Gilda.

Screenshot-2031That’s her. In not the bed I had intentioned.

Screenshot-2034Gisele, in another bed I hadn’t planned for her. But at least it’s a bed. Also sorry/not sorry for the bewbs in the painting, it’s art.

Screenshot-2036

“Yesterday you were a toddler!”

“Perceptive.”

Screenshot-2038

“Never take me swimming. I loathe water!”

“Got it. Btw hot dogs for breakfast really isn’t doing my heartburn any good.”

Never sleeping surely must be your bigger problem?

Screenshot-2039Doing a cheer, thinking about Teddy. The essence of Basil.

Screenshot-2041“Teddy, Teddy, Teddy”

Screenshot-2042“GO TEDDY!”

I think soft animals in general are quite stationary. And intended to be so.

“Spoilsport!”

Screenshot-2043Are you actually going to finish that? Would be the first in 3 generations.

Screenshot-2045“Better believe it, Watcher.”

Screenshot-2047Oh my stars and garters! It’s an actual finished product by an idiot!

“Repeat that, I dare you.”

Screenshot-2048Griffin: “I really, really love school.”

Gulliver: “Why are you sitting next to me?”

Gorkij: “This spot and the nearest six are taken. Just FYI.”

Screenshot-2052“Books are my friends.”

6fbbdcb6b118ba02ff4c266e0a9f4656465db4bf8d3e1e7b11a15107bed20787

Screenshot-2053Gulliver, “socializing” again. I honestly don’t know how he meets people.

“Rockets! So cool! Blasting off to unknown galaxies!”

“Um, so far I think expeditions have been limited to our own solar system.”

Screenshot-2054“All this existential pondering made me super hungry!”

Random teen: “Good to know. Why are you here again?”

“I’m on the run from the local authorities!”

“In that case, please leave.”

Screenshot-2055“Phew, I just barely escaped the cops.”

HAHAHA AS IF

Screenshot-2057“Why am I running BACK to the house where the policewoman is in her car waiting?”

I was hoping you could inform me.

Screenshot-2059This is why Faun is my least favourite heir so far (because genius sims are the worst and the chess master LTW is the worst of the worst) and also hi Julius! Gen. 1 throwback.

Screenshot-2061LOL grounded

Screenshot-2062

26273190580_a973e21289_z

Screenshot-2063Generation 7 with you in the lead role will be a JOY, Griffin.

tenor

Screenshot-2066Didn’t I design tables and chairs for you people? A STUDY even. This is how ye thank me.

 


No fails, how about that. Had this been a regular legacy Gulliver would have had a girlfriend AND a boyfriend by now, at least one of each. But this isn’t a regular legacy, is it? NO, it’s an idiot legacy! Soon to begin it’s 7th round, after (gasp) exactly 3 years with generation 6. No amount of real life babies or toddlers can excuse that blog pace, I’m sorry past self, but that’s just ridiculous. Anyway, it is what it is!

-160 points still

And the “winner” is…

If “winning” means staying in the Cuckoo household.

Then Griffin is the winner, with very weak competition from his brothers. Griffin got 7 votes, and Gillis, Gulliver and Gorkij got 2 respectively. The toddlers got none, not terribly surprising since no one has the stamina to wait for them to grow up after all, and they have zero personality at this point.

I had no idea you all like Griffin so much, but cool, the people have spoken. And I don’t mind! My personal favourite is Gulliver, but unfortunately he’s a clone of his mother, so there’s that. With that in mind, Griffin is a good choice.

I’m in a cabin in the Swedish wilderness (there are cows here!), miles from a decent wifi so the next chapter will have to wait until ca Sunday the 18th. Until then, happy simming!

Heir vote, new version (I’m an idiot)

Dear reader, I’m officially as dumb as my sims. In the heir poll I posted a few days ago, I FORGOT ONE OF THE KIDS. So I have to post another version of the poll, and I hope you have it in you to vote one more time. I’m awfully sorry.

Here are the nominees, one more time, with SIX contenders, not five. Duh. And you probably have to leave your reader and go to the website to vote or even see the poll. It’s so dumb it’s fitting for an ISBI.

Poll closed!

6.8 – Five little ducks

Screenshot-1733

37 semi-interesting screenshots before an heir vote. Come on, you can do eeeet.

Screenshot-1734

Faun be like “your needs bore me”. (Me too, actually.)

Screenshot-1736

Bah humbug.

-5

Screenshot-1738

Rocking chairs are useless. Put your toddler to bed, woman.

Screenshot-1739

Gillis, I hate you so much right now. How did you even fit a piano into that room? It was specifically designed to NOT be big enough for late night jam sessions.

Screenshot-1740

Although Gulliver couldn’t give a flying fuck so please, continue.

(He hasn’t got the heavy sleeper trait so I have no idea what’s going on.)

Screenshot-1742

Griffin, leave this poor woman alone. She’s obviously grieving and you don’t know her. And it’s midnight.

Screenshot-1743

Gorkij, newly caked and I have no idea if he was fully skilled. I completely forgot about fertility treatment generation rules. Honestly I might just ignore them altogether.

Screenshot-1745

“Now, let me introduce you to basic mechanics! Shall we begin with a lever?”

Sounds absolutely electrifying.

“No, that’s another book.”

Screenshot-1748

Gilda beneath Siana & Dart, I would presume.

Screenshot-1749

Cool pants, bruh.

Screenshot-1751

He puts her to bed when Faun wouldn’t. Suck-up.

Screenshot-1755

Look who finally made it home.

“I got a ride!”

Grieving elderly woman probably had nothing better to do in the middle of the night.

Screenshot-1756

Faun, why are you holding the over tired toddler that Gillis just put to bed?

“I missed her! She looks just like me, but she’s so tiny and adorable.”

Behave like a torch-holder or I’ll demote you to idiot!

Screenshot-1757

Basil wants to play catch. How reasonable, at 2 am.

Screenshot-1758

Can you even SEE the ball??

Screenshot-1760

“The snow really lights up the sky!”

Have fun in school tomorrow. -__-

Screenshot-1762

“I’m done for today.”

And soon forever. Or at least your generation. Mehehehe

Screenshot-1766

Lights out at 6 am.

Screenshot-1768

At least Gorkij got his bed back from the ghosts finally.

Screenshot-1769

Basil is up bright and early to clean the counters!

giphy-1

Screenshot-1770

And despite all of them being extremely tired, they are on their way to school! Including Gulliver, although invisible. *slow clap*

Screenshot-1774

Faun, why are you employed in business again? It’s not in your LTW and we don’t need the money. *quits job*

Screenshot-1775

All of them gathered in the same room, isn’t that precious.

yawn1

Also not all of them, because no Gillis.

Screenshot-1776

Woop, birthday alone in the park.

Screenshot-1777

Congrats dummy.

Screenshot-1778

Griffin gained the trait flirty. A flirty loner. Good luck with that. #stalker

“But I’m also friendly!”

Sigh.

Screenshot-1779

Face 1 service sims are so excited for Griffin. That makes two of them.

Screenshot-1782

Meanwhile, at home: Gillis becomes a young adult, and is now an insane, perceptive, virtuoso party animal who is also good.

Screenshot-1783

Cool suit.

Screenshot-1784

Gorkij thinks so anyway.

Screenshot-1785

Gulliver too.

Screenshot-1786

Faun catches up on some reading instead of celebrating her eldest.

Screenshot-1787

Birthday bath. “I bath once a year whether I need it or not”.

Since you graduate tomorrow, that’s big of you.

Screenshot-1788

I gave Basil his free action: read a book for work. Such a treat.

Screenshot-1791

Bookworm & genius hanging out. #partyhard

Screenshot-1792

“I do laundry, I should be heir!”

If it were Pick up Laundry Legacy, I’d totally choose you, Griffin, no poll.


-5 for Basil’s floor nap, so

-160

Wait, didn’t I promise you an heir vote? Yes I did! So here are the nominees:

gillisgulliver

Gillis is also Good.

griffin

And Flirty. Honestly, Griffin, you have internet creep written all over you.

gorkij

I totally forgot he’s hydrophobic too. Huh.

gilda

Toddler 1

gisele

Toddler 2

Now give me an heir! (it’s only been THREE YEARS since the last vote lol)

6.7 – You totally thought I’d never return

Hi readers spider web, great to see you! I know, I know, it’s been 11 months since you last saw an update from me, but who’s counting?

giphy

Since last time I lost basically all my CC (but got a better graphic card), added all the EPs at long last and moved the Cuckoos a LOT of times, like maybe 6-7 different worlds, tried them out for days etc. And played the save for weeks in Isla Paradiso, and it got laggy, and then I gave up and just threw all the IP screenshots out. One year later, I think that maybe Glendalough works for another generation, after all. So for now, that’s the plan.

Please forgive my complete lack of memory of what happened one year ago in my ISBI, I’m just going to post all these old screenshots and try to caption them as best I can. It’s going to be awful but just grin and bear it. Or cry, whatever suits your temper.

qv1aynq

HERE WE GO!

Screenshot-616

Let me reintroduce Basil, aka Dad. He’s childish.

Screenshot-617

 

As pictured above.

Screenshot-635

We jump straight to Gorkij’s birthday to child, and because we’re fancy, we have cake.

Screenshot-638

Congrats kid, no bathroom birthday. That makes you really special.

Screenshot-642

I think he’s artistic but I honestly can’t recall.

Screenshot-643

Tadaaa!

Screenshot-645

Cute.

Screenshot-649Griffin’s imaginary friend becomes real, Griffin is not impressed.

Screenshot-650

“I had a REAL DOG, I don’t care about a stupid imaginary friend.”

Screenshot-653

They pillow fight, but Griffin ends up angrier than before.

Screenshot-654

“You’re GARBAGE!”

“What did I do!?”

He or she isn’t even real, Griffin, relax a little.

Screenshot-658

Basil isn’t pleased with Gillis at all. I guess he pranked him or whatever.

Screenshot-659

And Gorkij’s new bed is already taken by Chaplin.

Screenshot-660

“It’s mine now, sucker.”

Screenshot-727

Such a reasonable hour to be reading in bed, especially  for an 8 year old.

Screenshot-734

OK, I’m at a loss.

Screenshot-735

This is Gulliver’s FRIEND, Artemis Chun. HE MADE A FRIEND ON HIS OWN. So +5

Screenshot-750

Gorkij paints an amazing painting like it’s no big deal.

Screenshot-756Gisele ages up with no cake.

Screenshot-758

Both hair and clothes were lost in the stream of cc.

Screenshot-760

Faun’s complete lack of interest in her toddlers’ aging up.

Screenshot-762

Gilda.

Screenshot-765

She looks like Faun. They are both insane and hydrophobic. Or maybe one is absent minded and both are hydrophobic.

Screenshot-769

Talulah, still alive.

Screenshot-771

But not for long.

Screenshot-775

Cute. I have nothing more to add.

Screenshot-776

Gisele looks more like Basil, but with Faun’s colors.

Screenshot-781

I hope you’re about to wash that stinky dog.

Screenshot-784

Gilda & Gillis

Screenshot-787

Only for the cute shots.

Screenshot-788

An 8 year old made this. Sure.

Screenshot-800

Bye Talulah,

Screenshot-801

I hope you got a bath before you died.

Screenshot-808

Like you care.

Screenshot-821

Passing out.

Screenshot-825

Screenshot-840

Gillis is a virtuoso. Even the ghosts are impressed.

Screenshot-842

Documenting idiots going to bed on their own free will before 2 am.

Screenshot-846

Almost too good to be true.

Screenshot-847

Even Bookworm is asleep before midnight.

Screenshot-848

Next day: –5

Screenshot-854

So I guess you already have the idiot trait.

Screenshot-855

What? Again?

Screenshot-857

Basil too.

Screenshot-858

Are you going to school, or what?

I guess so!

We’re getting close to an HEIR POLL, can you believe it? Gillis is about to age up to YA very soon, so we have an important decision to make. So prepare to click buttons!

6.6 – the little sister of the beast

Hello, hi and I have no excuse for my 3 month absence, but summer. We’ve been teaching our lazy baby to become a toddler, i.e actually toddle. He now does, but it took all summer, and one day short of 19 months old he walked across the room for the first time. *beaming* And I thought sim toddlers were cute when they learned to walk..

On that note, he’s sort of potty trained as well. He’s a bonafide baby genius.

Screenshot-407

Here’s baby Gorkij, fourth son of Faun and Basil Cuckoo.

Screenshot-408

He’s no genius, but he’s objectively adorable and he wears an exploding hot dog. Therefore, your argument is invalid.

Screenshot-411

Griffin likes to read. I like Griffin.

Screenshot-412

Gillis likes to make the bed. Not only his own bed but also his parents’ bed. I’m going to assume he has something to hide.

Screenshot-413

“I just like beds that are really flat, is all”.

You do you.

Screenshot-414

Look who’s knocked up again, and this time it better be a lass.

Screenshot-416

I sent Gillis to the beach with Gorkij for no reason except they needed some air.

Screenshot-417

LOL, stupid house looks stupid.

Screenshot-418

That house, however, I’m proud of 4 real. It may be a box but it’s a swanky box.

Screenshot-419

Enter stand around mode.

Screenshot-420

*hums The Cure*

Screenshot-421

Standing on the beach
With a gun in my hand
Staring at the sea
Staring at the sand

Screenshot-422

They went home again.

Screenshot-424

Basil at a party. That’s my boy.

Screenshot-425

Not sure why this particular bathroom attracts all the virtuosos in the family. Virtuosi? Sounds a bit pretentious doesn’t it? I’ll stick with virtuosos.

Screenshot-427

“Now say MAMA!”

“Woof woof!”

Story of my life. Kidding, his first word was mama. Second papa. Third woof woof.

Screenshot-428

I think we’re in the consignment shop. Griffin is reading, alone.

Screenshot-434

He’ll be a great tortured artist/poet/whatever one day.

Screenshot-435

Basil throwing a ball around.

Screenshot-437

This is cute, until you catch your death.

Screenshot-438

Note how he has no coat on.

Screenshot-439

Here comes the wildlife.

Screenshot-440bounce bounce bounce

Screenshot-441bounce bounce bounce

Screenshot-442

*gracefully being a deer*

Of course, ten minutes later Basil throws a wish to “watch a deer”. Buddy, you had your chance, I’m so not locking that one in.

Screenshot-445WOW. That’s Florence. Remember her?

Faun’s oldest sister. Yes, that’s her.

Screenshot-447

Yikes. I think it’s safe to say she peaked a while ago.

Screenshot-448

Very Peggy Bundy. Worse, actually. I didn’t expect that.

Screenshot-452

Gillis is such a sweetheart. Why are the sweethearts so boring?

Screenshot-455

Night, night Griffin!

Screenshot-457

Gorkij is down as well.

Screenshot-458

Gulliver, really?

Screenshot-459

Goodnight Basil.

Screenshot-461

Oh Gillis, won’t you please go to bed.

Screenshot-462

It’s late. Don’t fail me now.

Screenshot-463

creak creak

Screenshot-464

creak creak

Screenshot-467

Finally Gulliver opts for a nap.

Screenshot-470

I guess he doesn’t feel like going to school today.

Screenshot-472

Faun is busy with her youngest.

Screenshot-473

“School is for llamas.”

Actually, it’s more for human children. Not to be nitpicky.

Screenshot-474

“That’s OK.”

What is.

“You’re nitpicky, but that’s OK”.

Oh, thanks.

“No problemo”.

Screenshot-475

Haha, Chaplin is aggressive. I never tire of aggressive sim dogs.

Screenshot-475b

“No fair!”

Nope, but funny.

Screenshot-476

Griffin having a good time with random octogenarian.

“He’s a relative!”

Yeah well, 65 % of the town are Cuckoo relatives.  I can’t keep track.

Screenshot-478Griffin and Gorkij, totally cheating with the peek-a-boo.

Screenshot-479

It’s cute, OK. I deserve cute shots.

Screenshot-480Some party or other. They made food for their guests, bless them.

Screenshot-481

Not sure what this is about, but hi.

Screenshot-482Gulliver is a pro at getting strangers to read him a bedtime story.

Screenshot-483

“She’s my cousin!”

Doesn’t matter, it’s your first meeting.

Screenshot-486

Still gets a kiss, aaaw.

Screenshot-487Probably Fiona’s daughter, she looks just like her. Or like Etta.

Screenshot-488

Oh I know why I took this shot.

Screenshot-489Because THIS.

Screenshot-490

So infuriating!

-5

Screenshot-491

It’s another cakeless birthday in the Cuckoo household!

Screenshot-492

This time, it’s Gulliver’s turn.

Screenshot-493

At some point I’m going to have to count how many cakings we had vs oups I forgot.

Screenshot-494

Anyway, he’s a Faun clone so obviously he’s gorgeous. I don’t remember his new trait. I thought I took a screenshot but apparently not.

Screenshot-495

He may keep the mohawk. Gorgeous people can get away with a mohawk.

Screenshot-496

I think that’s Chaplin.

Screenshot-497

Poor, sweet, dumb, angry dog that only Basil cared for. 😦

Screenshot-498

Note: this is NOT what teenage boys look like IRL.

Screenshot-499

Like, at all.

Screenshot-500

Damn. I’m ever so sorry you’re a clone, honey.

Screenshot-501

“Me tooooo!”

Screenshot-502

Not sure who else would look stunning in a lilac turtleneck. That’s a feat in itself.

Screenshot-503

Aliens, le sigh.

Screenshot-505

Basil was abducted…

Screenshot-506

But with Faun already pregnant, he didn’t get inseminated. Whew. I hate aliens.

Screenshot-507Crying over the dog she hardly ever talked to. Classic.

Screenshot-508

“I feel like I could have been so much better to him!”

That’s not a feeling, that’s a fact. Know the difference.

Screenshot-509

“I guess all the hormones are making me emotional.”

That’s the guilt talking, Faun, not your hormones.

Screenshot-510

“You tell her, Watcher!”

Uh, I don’t remember you being particularly great at caring for the family cats either, Banjo.

“I’m dead, you can’t guilt trip me!”

Actually, guilt is a very valid reason for spirits to hang around. That, and revenge. So what’s yours?

“I’m only here for the free food.”

Screenshot-511

My son has that exact IKEA stacking tower.

Screenshot-512

A French modder made it. Bless the global market.

Screenshot-513

HERE COMES THE BABY!

Screenshot-514Pause.

Screenshot-515

*dog shame*

Screenshot-516

*unfathomable pressure*

Screenshot-518

PAIN

Screenshot-519

PRESSURE

Screenshot-521

Baby!

Screenshot-523

And ANOTHER baby!

gilda

gisele

LOL, both hydrophobic. And both insane. Isn’t that swell.

Screenshot-525

Gillis and Gulliver, AKA Dazed & Confused. (Why didn’t I think of that before?)

Screenshot-526

Not to toot my own ISBI horn, but I have some fine looking sims.

Screenshot-527

And I don’t mean you in particular, Gillis. But you’ll do.

“Thanks, that’s comforting.”

Screenshot-529

The shame. The guilt. The big gaping hole in a simulated heart.

Screenshot-533Griffin doesn’t care, Griffin is king!

Screenshot-534

“Shame is for the plebs!”

A fine motto for a 7 year old autocrat.

Screenshot-536

Goodnight, Nero.

-5

Talulah: “You guys are aware I’m still here, right? Old but you know, alive?”

Nope, nobody is aware. Keep doing your dog thing in the background.

Screenshot-789

Faun was asked out on a date and said yes, because the old girl could need a drink after a twin birth in the living room.

Screenshot-791

“So, as I was nursing Gilda, I squirted milk right in Gisele’s eye. Hilarious! You should have seen it!”

“Um, care to dance?”

Screenshot-793

“Amazing how I can even stand in a pair of heels, much less take a wide step!”

“Oh, uh, OK. Maybe the next dance is a slow one.”

Screenshot-794

“No buddy, I’m on fire! Watch out for this cha-cha-ing mama!”

Guy: *follows in terrified silence*

Screenshot-796

We end with Gillis staring wistfully at the moon.

And that’s a wrap.


-10 for fails

+10 for twin birth

so still -145 

So in May I rambled about moving the Cuckoos to a new world, which has happened, but there will be another chapter or so of old screenshots. Stay tuned, as they say.

Update

I haven’t forgotten about my cuckoos, but my current blogging situation is a bit complicated. The Glendalough save has become bloated and crash prone so a move is necessary —and at the same time I just bought a new computer that finally can handle all EPs, so witches and scuba diving here I come! I moved the family to various worlds already just to try, but I wasn’t completely satisfied with any of them, so I’m on the fence about my next step. My screenshots are also completely jumbled and confusing because of various crashes, where a lot of events didn’t really occur in the save but did occur in shots, so there’s that as well. And on top of everything else I’m itching to play a save with control over my sims, especially with all the new shiny that I haven’t been able to play until now. But I will have to use another save for that. Anyway, to be continued!

Ps: like a complete noob I lost all my cc when I moved to a new computer, I kind of like a fresh start also, but the Cuckoo house looks weird now.
