Meet Bachelor 4.2!!!

Okay readers, you now have a goal. Design the perfect life partner for this guy…

Cannon Griffin is looking for someone to love, someone to cuddle with, someone who will appreciate his romantic gestures. A romantic at heart, Cannon desires to live in a grand mansion filled with art and a grand piano, and outside there will be gardens with fountains. He does have a practical side, though, Cannon is very business savvy and intelligent. He has a lot of energy and enjoys exercising. His hobbies include collecting minerals, camping and backyard astronomy. His plans on making his money as an eSports gamer. Cannon is interested in both male and female Sims. He definitely wants at least two children.

Cannon Griffin won the vote by a landslide (even when ignoring the votes submitted repeatedly by the same person…I’m guessing you were just very excited about him).

Remember to go here to submit contestants! It’s easy and fun. If you have any questions, let me know in the comments!

Our newest resident of Newcrest is Lola Flasterdasher.08-09-15_4-27 PM - Copy

Taste and quality are important to Lola, so she makes all her own meals and watches the cooking channel. While she plans on focusing on beverage creation in the future being a skilled cook will help her get there.

08-09-15_5-48 PM - Copy

On the couple of days that Lola had off of work, she took Yoga classes at the local spa.

08-09-15_5-48 PM-2 08-09-15_5-48 PM-3 08-09-15_5-50 PM 08-09-15_5-49 PM

You can see from the above photos that she is no where near as flexible as her teacher. However, in most positions, she seems to do better than her classmate.

08-09-15_5-54 PM

After yoga class, she heads over to the nightclub.

08-09-15_5-56 PM

The bar tenders let her practice mixing drinks for people,

08-09-15_8-24 PM

She started the round as a dishwasher, and ended the round with a promotion to head dishwasher. She works mainly in the evenings, coming home sometime after midnight.

08-09-15_8-27 PM

Here’s another day off, and another yoga class.

08-09-15_8-30 PM 08-09-15_8-32 PM

Along with some more mixology, and befriending the bar tenders.

08-12-15_9-42 PM

Leftover franks and beans for breakfast, anyone?

08-12-15_9-46 PM

On days she is working, she has little time for other activities…she wakes up, showers and uses the bathroom, makes some food, goes to work, comes home, makes food, uses the bathroom and goes to bed. Sometimes she has time for a bit of reading (the book above is “Crisis” something..barn? maybe?; it is what she is reading now).

08-12-15_9-49 PM

She was saving money to buy a bar, but the TV broke…she’ll need to decide whether or not to repair the TV or buy the bar.

Teaser: Meet Lola Flasterdasher

Here is a teaser for the newest household to join Newcrest! Meet Lola Flasterdasher created by terryscf!

08-09-15_12-13 PM

Lola is a cheerful, creative and clumsy gal who’s main mission is to become the best mixologist possible. She would also like to find a soulmate, and someday get married and have a couple kids.

Round Four: The Valentine Household (Part 1)

This is the continuation of Round 4 of our Community Town. We are focusing on the neighborhood of Newcrest. You can learn more about the game, and submit your own character, here.

08-08-15_11-00 AM

Amber is passionate about her career and is excelling at it. However, the driving force behind her ambition is a desire to provide for the large family she plans to have in the future.

08-08-15_1-49 PM

As such, she has had an active dating life. Remember Devonte, the massage therapist from last round? Well, he never called or stopped by, so he was replaced by Ellis. Ellis was active, but also childish, squeamish and unemployed.

08-08-15_2-49 PM

Amber spent this round dating and working. She also briefly considered a guy named Mack who was an outgoing yoga instructor, but he was a glutton and a bit of perfectionist. No one seemed to be the right fit for Amber, even though she was anxious to get married and start her large family.

08-08-15_2-57 PM

She met Kristopher when he came into the hospital for a simple case of Bloaty Head. They chatted on the phone a couple times, and then Amber invited him over.

08-08-15_3-03 PM

While Kristopher was currently unemployed, he was ambitious and was anxious to start a career. He is a bit of a geek, so he was looking for a position in the IT field.

Amber and Kristopher *really* hit it off. Within only a couple of dates, their relationship bar was filled more than double any amount from any of her previous boyfriends.

08-08-15_6-41 PM 08-08-15_6-41 PM-3 08-08-15_6-42 PM

Of course, not everyone was happy with this new development.

08-08-15_7-42 PM

Amber was promoted to Medical Technologist at work.

08-08-15_7-43 PM

Hey, look who is working today!

08-08-15_7-46 PM-2

Amber is now able to diagnose and treat patients, as well as run the x-ray scanner and treadmill test.

08-08-15_6-46 PM

It was clear that Amber and Kristopher were soulmates (that’s what the relationship status said!); and it seemed like Amber might have found the one.

08-08-15_6-46 PM-2

And then Kristopher told her a deep secret that he had been hiding from the rest of the town….

And you’ll need to wait until part 2 to find out that secret! (Hint: It even caught ME by complete surprise!).

Round Four: The Smith Family

This is the continuation of Round 4 of our Community Town. We are focusing on the neighborhood of Newcrest. You can learn more about the game, and submit your own character, here.

A few notes for you:

  • Sorry for the delay in posts, life has been crazy the past couple weeks and my Sim time as been limited. I’m staying put this weekend, though, so fingers crossed I get some more time in.
  • Not all Sims will have exciting happenings each round, particularly houses with adults only. Some weeks Sims pretty much just work or do repetitive tasks to increase skills, and there won’t be much to report on.
  • The Sims currently in Newcrest are listed, with their creator, in the righthand sidebar. Likewise, you can find the current queue of Sims to be added to Newcrest. Sims are added at the rate of 1 household per round. You can submit multiple Sims. It may be good to have a backup Sim in the game, as I will not exit-without-saving should an accidental death occur. At some point, I will need to reduce the flow of Sims (particularly when offspring start arriving), but for now we’ll keep things like this.

07-25-15_11-54 AM

Most of John’s time was spent working at the hospital where he diagnosed and treated patients, and made acquaintances with his colleagues.

07-25-15_2-12 PM

John was promoted again this week and is now a “Medical Technologist”.

07-25-15_2-13 PM

John day typically involves checking in patients, taking temperatures, swabbing for samples, running samples through an analyzer, scanning the body, checking the eyes and the ears, etc…

07-25-15_2-16 PM

This week, he learned how to perform treadmill tests on his patients, which was exciting.

07-25-15_2-41 PM

Colleen spent more time dancing in the kitchen. Sadly, I was still not able to get the mail from the Geo Council to arrive. This means Colleen is having difficulty completing the requirements for the Curator aspiration. I think we are going to need to change her aspiration until that glitch is resolved. Most of Colleen’s week was spent testing my possible fixes for the glitch (I found some things to try on forums, nothing has worked).

07-25-15_2-52 PM

John decided to take up comedy, so he spent some time telling jokes after work to people who passed by his house.

07-25-15_6-02 PM

The only exciting thing that happened to The Smith household this week was a birthday party invitation.

07-25-15_6-03 PM

Nina Caliente through a formal party at the home she shares with Dina, Katrina and Don Lothario.

07-25-15_6-04 PM

Both John and Colleen attended, and it was somewhat entertaining.

Round Four: The Bubbettes Family Part 2

This is the continuation of Round 4 of our Community Town. We are focusing on the neighborhood of Newcrest. You can learn more about the game, and submit your own character, here.

In Part 1, we saw Megera Bubbettes take a gardening-inspired vacation to Granite Falls. While there, she had a bit of heartache, and then went exploring in the deep woods where she found a cave…and then a hidden area…with a house.

07-19-15_3-38 PM

She found the owner of the home outside in his garden, happily and busily taking care of his extensive garden.

07-19-15_3-37 PM

Pablo Woo was very shy. He obviously enjoyed living alone, in the middle of nowhere. But he couldn’t help being drawn to Megera because of her interest in his plants. They conversed for a long time about nature.

07-19-15_3-35 PM

Megera realized that it was nightfall, and she had to hike all the way back to camp. She bid Pablo farewell and promised to return again the following day.

07-19-15_3-40 PM

She made it back safely to camp, and the following morning, she headed out- this time with all her camping gear in tow, so she wouldn’t have to leave early.

When she returned, Pablo wasn’t home. So she hiked more around the area admiring the scenery…

07-19-15_4-45 PM 07-19-15_4-50 PM

07-19-15_4-52 PM

And cooked some fish for lunch.

07-19-15_4-59 PM

Eventually Pablo returned, and they had a fantastic afternoon. She discovered that not only was Pablo in love with the outdoors and gardening, but he was also a little bit crazy. Just like her! They connected on a level she had never experienced before.

07-19-15_5-03 PM

The amazing day turned into an amazing evening in Pablo’s cabin. :::wink:::

The following day, she had to leave. She had to return to her garden. Pablo understood, but made her promise to return soon.

07-25-15_9-04 AM

The rest of the week went by like normal…taking care of her garden.

07-25-15_10-07 AM-3

She did visit Amber Saturday afternoon. They hung out in her living room watching TV.

07-25-15_10-11 AM-2

Megera expanded her kitchen a bit…she added another counter and a microwave.
