TS4- Drifter Challenge 001.2: Can’t Buy Love

House 001 Chapter 2

TS4_x64 2016-06-03 23-57-46-92

I’m thinking the fumes from the burgers are going to Brock’s head…

TS4_x64 2016-06-03 23-59-12-12

…then he sits down and I see the nasty food from previous meals.

TS4_x64 2016-06-04 00-06-07-47

That astronaut is totally giving Less than zero the stink-eye.

TS4_x64 2016-06-04 00-10-01-45

I have to confess, I took a peek into manage worlds to find any eligible guys for Brock and I thought Emerson was a cutie so I’d been watching the passersby for him.  When I saw him jogging I had Brock stop everything he was doing and run over to meet him.


I love it when my sims and I are on the same page.

So Brock invites Emerson over for a chat.

TS4_x64 2016-06-04 00-20-44-21

They cloudgaze.

TS4_x64 2016-06-04 00-22-55-89

Ah yea.  I managed to pause it before the hearts popped up ruining my shot!

TS4_x64 2016-06-04 00-24-00-25

He had the whim to make-out with Emerson and at first I couldn’t figure out how but then I remembered the bench.  Yay for random benches!

TS4_x64 2016-06-04 00-27-07-81

Then he had the whim for a good ole whoohoo in the tent.  He moves fast.  (Then again, I consider a day in the young adult stage to be a year so maybe not?)

TS4_x64 2016-06-04 00-46-56-50

The next day he’s feeling inspired and on top of the world.  I’ve decided not to get him a job and just concentrate on getting collectables and painting.

TS4_x64 2016-06-04 09-34-21-36

Okay so I’m really disappointed.  My computer restarted in the middle of the night and Fraps usually opens when I boot up the computer but this time it didn’t.  So I thought I had gotten all these cute pics of Brock and Emerson’s date at the bluffs (yes I had $1,000 in reserve) but I didn’t get any.  I went to look in my screenshots folder to count how many I had because I planned to end the chapter here and they weren’t there.  *sigh*  So to recap- Emerson invited Brock on a date to the bluffs, he had just finished gathering and I hadn’t started building yet so he had the money in reserve so he went.

Now, I’m going to warn you off the bat I am a horrible builder!  I ended up getting out the graph paper and sketching out an outline for the house.  I figured I’d start with the bathroom which is the 4×4 block of walls that the kitchen is surrounding.  I didn’t realize until later that I somehow had the walls on high.  I had to search online to find how to make them normal walls.  LOL

TS4_x64 2016-06-04 10-26-11-24

A bedroom and a wall for the start of the kitchen get added next.  (This was a day or so later, not sure why I didn’t take any screenies in that time.)

TS4_x64 2016-06-04 10-29-16-86

Now that there is a suitable bathroom and the bush has had some time to air itself out I decided to grant Brock’s whim to whoohoo in it.

TS4_x64 2016-06-04 10-31-30-91

While Brock showers Emerson digs in the trash.  His traits are romantic, slob and art lover.

TS4_x64 2016-06-04 10-39-30-51

I figured moving him in couldn’t hurt.  It doesn’t help either, he doesn’t have a job.  But I finally got to give him a makeover.  Since his aspiration is bodybuilder I put him in athletic clothes.

TS4_x64 2016-06-04 11-19-28-48

After selling all the collectables for the day Brock has enough to travel and they go to one of the 3 open lots: Von Haunt Estate.  He proposes…

TS4_x64 2016-06-04 11-20-43-96

Then they change into formal-wear and use the handy arch on the lot to get married.

TS4_x64 2016-06-04 11-21-43-79 TS4_x64 2016-06-04 11-22-11-44

Yay!  I’m going to end it here for now.  I played the first 6 days pretty much without stopping except to sleep.

    1. To be fair the update allowing male pregnancy is fairly recent although it was an option with mods before that. Haha the stump chairs. Yes, in the beginning, I really wanted it to seem very “campy”.


      1. I know…but still…. I’m betting we will c more & more of this now that they have given us the options. I didn’t bother changing the rules, but obviously it’s not 100% gender specific anymore heh

        1. Oh actually now that I think of it I believe Raerei did a female couple in hers. She only did one blog post that showed the whole thing tho so I forgot!
