TS4- Drifter Challenge 003.3: Emotional Essences

House 003 Chapter 3

TS4_x64 2016-07-07 21-47-23-03

After writing the last chapter I decided to make good on my plans to fence in the cowplant with a locked gate right away.

TS4_x64 2016-07-07 22-00-54-26

Wade’s sister Willow comes to visit and everyone congregates around the garden.  I mark her for pregnancy and marriage while she’s there since I put that pack back into my mods.  Oddly enough, she got pregnant by some woman (didn’t think that was possible unless the woman was marked “can get others pregnant” but whatever) then in the next cycle it married her to some horribly ugly guy that I had to completely makeover in CAS.

TS4_x64 2016-07-07 22-15-26-85

Wade went to Sylvan Glade again and caught a gummie fish.  He just needs 3 more to complete his aspiration.

TS4_x64 2016-07-07 22-28-42-25

Fernanda after work.  Poor girl, I can’t control her to let her take family leave.

TS4_x64 2016-07-07 23-08-58-24

A bit of an upgrade to the house.  I added the kids room, a foundation, front porch, back deck and stairs.  The small room by the kitchen was supposed to be a half bath but it was in the way and I took it out later.

TS4_x64 2016-07-07 23-14-07-28

I was looking for harvestables for Wade when I saw the hermit fishing by his house.  Weird.  I got the notification that she died a few days later.  Dunno why but I thought they were like immortal or something unless you moved them to society.

TS4_x64 2016-07-07 23-35-16-44

Poor Colton.  One essence of energy, 3 more essences to go.

TS4_x64 2016-07-07 23-36-57-87

Wade comes out and milks it while Colton showers and is miserable for a day.

TS4_x64 2016-07-07 23-45-34-11

Remember in the last chapter when I said I was going to let it be a surprise whether it’s a boy or a girl?  I sure was surprised!  It was both, twins.  Brett and Brie.  Brett was born first so he’s the heir.

TS4_x64 2016-07-08 09-40-52-53

Wade was going back to Sylvan Glade and when he landed at house 002 his parents were like this.  So sweet.

TS4_x64 2016-07-08 09-43-35-46

Oh here’s the rainbow fish that didn’t count as a new fish even though he didn’t have it before.  Two of the fishes that he doesn’t have are actually common fish so I’m surprised he hasn’t caught them yet.

TS4_x64 2016-07-08 09-59-08-78

When he got home Fernanda was at work and Colton was taking care of the babies.

TS4_x64 2016-07-08 10-07-41-47

He was really tired so he fed them both before heading to bed.

TS4_x64 2016-07-08 10-12-41-94

Poor Fernanda.  That’s what you get for getting flirty.  Two to go.

TS4_x64 2016-07-08 10-28-58-14

The kids age up and get makeovers.  Brett had the glasses and hat and I was thinking he looked a lot like Less Than Zero’s Ryder Negative in his house 003.

TS4_x64 2016-07-08 10-33-42-87

No idea why they’re both doing pushups.  I thought it was funny so I took a pic.  Colton looks like he’s wondering what they’re doing too.

TS4_x64 2016-07-08 10-46-11-56

More stuff gets added to the house.  I haven’t decided if I like the counters in a V like that or not.  It’s not what I had planned but I can’t figure out how to do it like I wanted.

TS4_x64 2016-07-08 11-53-50-00

The family got invited over to house 002 and I figured it can’t be considered cheating now that they have everything they need at their own house.  Here’s Willow’s hubby Kelvin and son Patrick.  He had a horrid name but I changed it when he aged to child.

TS4_x64 2016-07-08 12-01-33-12

The family groups around the fire out back.

TS4_x64 2016-07-08 12-02-53-46

Wade tried to tell a group story but he never started and then everyone was getting tired so they went home.


I’m glad they went.  I got this the next day.

TS4_x64 2016-07-08 12-14-49-68

A bit of essence of embarrassment anyone?  Four down one to go.

TS4_x64 2016-07-08 12-16-41-82

Just thought they were cute.  He doesn’t get to spend much time with the family.  He’s gardening almost all the time.

TS4_x64 2016-07-08 12-17-34-14

Awe what a good little heir.

TS4_x64 2016-07-08 12-29-18-29

Umm yea.  I may work him a bit hard.  I wait ’till he passes out to let him take a moodlet solver potion.

TS4_x64 2016-07-08 12-47-33-09

And thus we now have the five required essences with Colton’s essence of playfulness.

TS4_x64 2016-07-08 13-01-22-61

Fernanda ages to adult.

TS4_x64 2016-07-08 13-04-17-41

I get impatient with the gardening skill and so he plants like 30 more blackberry plants.

TS4_x64 2016-07-08 13-07-28-72

His dad Andrew visits and he takes a break from gardening to spend some time with him.


He died the next day.  It’s so sad.

TS4_x64 2016-07-08 13-16-07-01

What the heck?  Do ya’ll see that nightlight on the wall?  It’s been there since they were babies.  It’s supposed to stop this nonsense.  The kids woke up Colton 3 times.  He kept going back to bed.  Then they woke up their mom and dad but I sent Wade back to sleep.  After everyone got home from school and work the next day they were all exhausted and napped.

TS4_x64 2016-07-08 13-48-38-67

The remaining Rover clan comes over to celebrate Wade’s adult birthday.

Chapter 003.4

Chapter notes:

This chapter is about 10 days.  There just wasn’t much going on.  Fishing and gardening.

Aspiration check- Needs 3 fish… I’m waiting for him to get his gardening to 10 so he can unlock the park and fish there.

Skills check- Fishing 10, Gardening almost 9, Handiness 3 from repairing everything around the house.

House value- $40,593 with $19k in reserve.  I’ve just been too lazy to finish the house.  It mostly just needs windows and decorations.

Heir age check- 8 days ’till teen.

  1. I am surprised the coolala light didn’t stave off the monster under the bed…and the parents passing is just so incredibly sad 😦 but congrats on the progress it is quite impressive. I was going to ask is the aspiration part of the next two houses (2 ans 3?) Or is the challenge inthis one to get all the essences?
