Round Five: Acheivements

acheivements5

Achieved This Round:

  • Green Thumb- Have a Sim achieve max level in gardening. Achieved by Megera Bubbettes.
  • Honorary Sim Guru- Play the Sims for 100 hours. Seriously think this was a glitch, but I’m not recording my hours so difficult to determine when this will be accomplished, so I’ll take it now.
  • Knock Knock- Visit 25 different lots. Achieved by Colleen while collecting.

Newcrest Achievements:

  1. All Nighter- Have a Sim stay awake for 24 hours. (GLITCHED! This did not happen.)
  2. Green Thumb- Have a Sim achieve max level in gardening. Achieved by Megera Bubbettes.
  3. Honorary Sim Guru- Play the Sims for 100 hours. Seriously think this was a glitch, but I’m not recording my hours so difficult to determine when this will be accomplished, so I’ll take it now.
  4. In the Game- Play 24 hours. I only achieved this one like last round…so yeah, sure on #3.
  5. Introvert- Have a Sim do nothing social for 24 hours. Well, 24 hours isn’t a long time to avoid people when you live alone! Bubbettes accomplished this one day when she didn’t go to the parks. She gardened, read a book on gardening, and watched TV.
  6. Just Getting Started- Play for 4 hours. Well, obviously!
  7. Knock Knock- Visit 25 different lots. Achieved by Colleen while collecting.
  8. Splice of Life- Unlock a new plant type through grafting. Apparently Megera achieved this. She did do some grafting but the result was a plant that grew both of the flowers, not a new kind, but I suppose that counts.
  9. Whimsical- Complete 100 whims across all Sims. Completed by everyone in Round 3.
  • Score: 9-1 (glitch) = 8 of 79 (~10%)

10-28-15_1-43-18 PM

Asara Swift’s new home should look familiar. She’s moved into the place that used to be occupied by the Valentine Family before they upgraded to a new home to accommodate their growing family.

10-28-15_12-13-13 PM

Asara very quickly gets into cooking almost every meal from scratch for herself. She aspires to become a master in all things culinary.

10-28-15_12-12-56 PM

The plate next to the television is a fruitcake delivered by John Smith. Fruitcakes last forever, though, so she is in no rush to eat it. Every evening for entertainment, Asara watches cooking shows on tv to learn new recipes.

10-28-15_12-06-45 PM

She also took up gardening. She’s very interested in using fresh herbs and veggies in her dishes.

10-28-15_12-05-56 PM

Most of her small income this week went toward food and house maintenance. She had to replace the toilet after it exploded water all over the bathroom.

10-28-15_11-58-12 AM

On her days off, she went down to the park to make some new friends (so she’d have someone to invite over for dinner parties, of course).

10-28-15_11-57-36 AM

She even grilled some food for everyone. Despite her efforts, though,she didn’t really connect with her fellow park-goers.

10-27-15_8-01-20 PM

She found her neighbors to be quite a friendly lot, though.

10-20-15_8-03-51 PM

She also is exploring the online world to make some new friends.

10-20-15_8-02-36 PM

In addition to cooking, she is teaching herself how to bake. Here was her first batch of brownies (out of the box, of course).

When we last left off we were in the hospital as Amber was delivering her baby!

A quick cuddle in the hospital before heading home.

09-26-15_4-55-38 PM

Both Amber and Kristopher are very loving and attentive parents, and neither seem phased by the appearance of their children.

09-26-15_7-08-25 PM

Amber has been teaching herself to play chess. The table is right outside the nursery so she can keep an eye on things as she plays.

09-26-15_7-22-11 PM

Amber and Kristopher decided it would be a good idea if Kristopher took his normal form sometimes while inside the house so the children could recognize and relate to both forms.

09-26-15_7-22-39 PM 09-26-15_7-22-44 PM

09-26-15_10-32-20 PM

09-27-15_9-38-30 PM

Here we see Kristopher eating some cereal for breakfast, while Amber has leftover Mac n’ Cheese.

09-27-15_9-43-54 PM

Amber did let Kristopher take off for a few hours on the weekend to go fishing.

09-27-15_9-44-03 PM

He didn’t catch anything, but he’s still learning.

09-27-15_9-49-22 PM 09-27-15_9-49-34 PM

Evening dance time!

09-27-15_9-52-00 PM

09-12-15_8-32 PM

Since Amber was anxious to expand her family, she has the honor of not only being the first one to move to a bigger house, but also to be the owner of the first home I’ve ever built from scratch in the Sims 4.

09-12-15_9-51 PM

The floor plan is an open living area with cooking, dining and entertaining.

09-12-15_9-51 PM-2

The budget was limited, so decorations and furnishings are modest.

09-12-15_9-52 PM

Most importantly, the house has a nursery.

09-12-15_9-52 PM-2

Amber and Kristopher’s bedroom has enough room for a treadmill.

09-12-15_9-53 PM

The bathroom is average size.

09-12-15_9-53 PM-2

And there is a small porch area for grilling.

09-13-15_2-29 PM

Kristopher has shown an interest in cooking.

09-13-15_9-51 PM

Shortly after moving into their new home, a couple changes came about. Kristopher took a job at a tech company, and Amber found out she was pregnant.

09-26-15_12-57-11 PM

Kristopher took care of much of the household chores while Amber was pregnant.

09-26-15_1-00-08 PM

He relaxed with one of his favorite hobbies, video games.

09-26-15_1-04-12 PM

Amber would like to find the room and money for a piano, but for now she shows her artistic side by learning to play the violin.

09-26-15_1-05-46 PM

Kristopher made up large batches of Franks n’ Beans and Mac n’ Cheese and kept them in the fridge, so Amber would always have something to eat.

09-26-15_1-07-33 PM

Amber was hungry all the time while she was pregnant, and sometimes had to get up in the middle of the night for a snack.

09-26-15_4-36-11 PM

Oouch. Amber suffered from a sore back. It would have been great to manage to get to the spa while she was pregnant, but she just couldn’t find the time.

09-26-15_4-38-59 PM

Amber’s belly got really big….like, unusually so.

09-26-15_4-40-42 PM

Kristopher was always ready to volunteer a back massage.

09-26-15_4-41-38 PM

Amber and Kristopher love to dance together to the radio after dinner. Even while she was pregnant, Amber was up and dancing every evening.

09-26-15_4-46-48 PM

It’s time! Contractions started and we were off to the hospital! Into the baby removing device!

09-26-15_4-46-51 PM

We don’t really know this doctor, but he seems focused.

09-26-15_4-46-55 PM 09-26-15_4-47-04 PM 09-26-15_4-47-08 PM

Whoops! Put that back in, that’s not a baby!
