House 001 Chapter 2
I’m thinking the fumes from the burgers are going to Brock’s head…
…then he sits down and I see the nasty food from previous meals.
That astronaut is totally giving Less than zero the stink-eye.
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.
Ah yea. I managed to pause it before the hearts popped up ruining my shot!
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!
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?)
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.
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
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.)
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.
While Brock showers Emerson digs in the trash. His traits are romantic, slob and art lover.
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.
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…
Then they change into formal-wear and use the handy arch on the lot to get married.
Yay! I’m going to end it here for now. I played the first 6 days pretty much without stopping except to sleep.
