Martin Bowling: Episode 11

If you haven’t read about Martin Bowling before, go here. If you are looking for the most recent posts concerning Martin, go here.

As you may recall from our last episode, Martin’s family moved to Willow Creek into a more suitable home for their size family. Both Jade and Martin were struggling to get promotions at work. Martin and Jade were beginning to feel their age and the twins are a handful.

The kids sometimes went to the park after school to play before heading home.

02-16-16_8-36-14 PM

Here is a typical weekday afternoon at the Bowling house before Martin and Jade get home from work. Benjamin is dancing to the music (just like his parents!), Isaac is focused on his homework (he is slightly more studious than the other two), and Raelyn is seeing how fast she can type on the computer.

02-19-16_2-19-08 PM

All too soon, we were throwing a birthday party for Benjamin. The few remaining Martineers (many have passed away) were in attendance along with Salvador (Isaac’s best friend) and Damien, of course (Benjamin’s best friend).

02-19-16_2-18-23 PM

It was time for Benjamin to transition into a teenager…what would his grown-up aspiration be?

02-19-16_2-19-23 PM

02-19-16_2-21-59 PM

Benjamin’s aspiration is Party Animal…he wants to throw and attend awesome parties. Benjamin is gregarious, outgoing and childish (but in a good way).

02-19-16_2-25-29 PM

Morgan, Damien, Jade and Benjamin played cards during the party.

02-19-16_10-51-10 AM

Jade has been trying to play more games to improve her critical thinking skills, which she needs to get promoted.

02-20-16_12-33-08 PM

Eventually, Jade buys a chess table to focus on her skills even more. Still no promotion, though.

02-20-16_8-53-18 PM

The kids are tired and bored after coming home from school.

02-20-16_2-32-14 PM

Both the sink and the fridge are broken, and all of Martin’s next paycheck will be going towards their repair.

02-20-16_2-37-53 PM

02-20-16_8-54-39 PM

Benjamin agrees to watch a kid movie with his younger siblings…he likes that sort of thing.

02-20-16_4-09-15 PM

Raelyn had an embarrassing day at school, and she tells Jade all about it that night.

Thanks for reading!

We need more contestants for the Bachelor!!! Go here to submit one.

01-09-16_2-19-06 PM

It was Martin’s birthday and he threw a party. Martin always prefers to see the best in people, and to give the benefit of the doubt. He invited Jade over to the party.

01-09-16_2-19-08 PM

He did noticed that he spent a lot of time entertaining his friends and playing host…and not spending time with her. So, perhaps he shouldn’t have been so disappointed by their interactions during her party.

01-09-16_2-20-05 PM

She got a long great with his friends. Like him, she liked all sorts of people.

01-09-16_4-52-22 PM

Later that week, he took her on a date…to the bluffs where they first met. They had a fabulous time. At the end of which, he proposed. Jade said yes.

The ceremony was at the Island Bluffs, of course.

01-10-16_3-15-04 PM

There was dancing.

01-10-16_3-09-55 PM

And swimming.

01-10-16_3-07-25 PM

I love how Eliza got a drink that matches her dress!

01-10-16_3-08-26 PM

There was a chocolate fountain.

01-10-16_3-09-32 PM

Jade somehow ended up with two drinks!

Thanks for reading!!!

The newest stuff pack is finally on Amazon. I have an Amazon gift card I got for Christmas, so I can get it! Movies and popcorn for my Sims! I think the Martineers will LOVE a movie night.

Hmm…Martin is getting pretty old now- he’s already transitioned to adult. If we want to make this a Legacy, we are going to need to pop out some little Martins soon!!!

 

Bachelor 4.3 is…..

Bachelor #6: Dalton Montgomery!

Dalton is a Renaissance Sim…he is interested in learning about all different kinds of things. He is currently working as a cadet for the police force, but he doesn’t plan on having that as a career his whole life. He wants to experience a bit of everything. His ability to learn new skills quickly will help him with that, and so will his creativity. He has a wide variety of interests from playing the guitar, going to the gym to gardening. He is also a bit of a “bro” and likes to hang out with the guys and watch sports. He’s a good soul who is happy when other people are happy, dislikes conflict, and donates to charities often. He is interested in becoming a member of the Garden Gnomes club.  He wants to have a large family someday, and he is only attracted to women.

I’m glad Dalton won, he was one of my favorites! He’s a randomly generated cutie! The downside of Dalton is he is attracted only to the ladies. Sorry, gents. You are still welcome to submit a guy, but preference will be given to lady Sims.

Speaking of which, we still need contestants…so, go…make Dalton’s soulmate! Here: https://opissims.wordpress.com/2016/01/04/bachelor-4-3-accepting-contestants/

 

Who is the Next Bachelor??!

Who will be Bachelor 4.3?!?

As I’ve mentioned, I had a computer meltdown, which has led to a reboot of the Bachelor. Cannon, Bachelor 4.2, is deceased. You can submit new contestants or re-submit your old contestants from 4.2 by filling out this form. I’ve made some tweaks to the form. Anyone can submit a contestant!

I did something different for these Bachelors candidates….I randomly generated all aspects of their appearances, personalities, hobbies etc…using a combination of in-game generators (appearance), online 3rd party generators (traits and aspirations), and dice (hobbies, careers, clubs, sexual preference). I did small tweaking here and there to their wardrobes (when things looked ridiculous or didn’t match the personality), and sometimes I “rolled” again when I really didn’t like the result, but I tried to keep it as random as possible.

The results will likely make this decision challenging for you…as I feel everyone has drawbacks, but it makes them more real to me. I also will enjoy trying to sell you on these random (literally) gentlemen.

Bachelor Candidate #1: James Talbert

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

James is brilliant. Not only is he naturally gifted with smarts that exceed those of common Sims, but he also spends a lot of his time reading, analyzing and discussing books. His wonderful mental talent is put to use working for the Sim Intelligence Agency. He isn’t lacking in social skills, either. He’s very gregarious and has a personal life goal of becoming the leader of an infamous club (likely to do with reading). His social nature does not extend to children, however. In fact, he despises children. He simply cannot communicate with them due to their inferior intellect. Consequently, he does absolutely not want children. When not working as a genius or reading, he likes to get outside. He enjoys fishing and making special brews out of herbs. He enjoys hanging out in coffee shops and cafes. He is interested in becoming a member of the “Good Timers” club, a group who spend their time hanging out in bars and playing pub games. While James has a strong preference for ladies, he isn’t entirely opposed to settling down with gent if the intellectual connection is strong.

Bachelor #2: Mathew Pasang

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Mathew has a gift for cooking, and he loves using it. His goal is to master the art of cooking, and he is a professional chef. He wants to join the Upper Crusts club, where all the foodies hang out. He loves spending time with close friends and family. He prefers to have a tight circle of friends he sees often, and he wants his family to be even closer. Despite this love of family, he is still unsure if he wants children. To balance his love for eating, he is very interested in physical fitness. He loves going for jogs in the local park. He’s on the squeamish side and everything from dirty dishes to gore on TV makes him feel queasy. Sometimes he acts a bit crazy- he talks to himself often and he can’t always keep his emotions in check. He is only interested in men, and has no interest in female contestants.

Bachelor #3: Todd Meredith

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Todd is pretty smart and a quick learner. He aspires to be well-read, but also to have a logical mind that allows him to take things apart and put them back together. He’s a very happy guy, always cheerful. However, he has a bit of a mean streak and can also be quite the jealous type.  He works in business management, but in his spare time he enjoys playing the violin and taking photos. He finds the Avant Gardes the most appealing club to join. He also likes chatting online (and trolling people). He would like lots of children. He is mostly into women, but is open to possibilities.

Bachelor #4: Kaiden Adcock

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Kaiden is a fun-loving goofball. He likes to be in clubs, hang out with friends, and is usually pretty popular. Kaiden is materialistic…he likes stuff, and he’s not ashamed to admit that his primary desire in life is to become fabulously wealthy. He makes his living as a musician, but he’s also very business savvy. Besides hanging out with friends and playing tunes, he also enjoys backyard astronomy, computer programming and parenting. Kaiden looks forward to the day he can help his future children with their homework or play with them on the playground. He doesn’t want lots of kids, but would like to adopt a couple. He is interested in many clubs, but his first pick would be Partihaus (drinking, dancing, etc…). Sorry ladies, but Kaiden is 100% attracted to guys.

Bachelor #5: Antwan Cooke

Antwan Cooke (pronounced like “cookie”) wants to be everyone’s friend. He loves people, and wants to be friends with every one he meets.  His desire to befriend everyone ties in to his naturally ambitious personality. He works hard at whatever he does…and sometimes he gets labeled as a perfectionist because of it. He works as a painter, but his goal is to someday be a Patron of the Arts. He is interested in curating and cultivating artistic talent. He’s a bit of a foodie, and appreciates food as a form of art. In his spare time, he does a lot of reading. He also collects rare minerals, and dabbles in rocket science. He’s interested in having a small family someday with one or two children. He’s only attracted to women.

Bachelor #7: Caiphus Burns

Caiphus currently works as a technician in a science lab, but he hopes to someday become a professional bodybuilder. His naturally high metabolism has given him a distinct advantage for his goal. He is thankful for his high metabolism because he is actually quite the glutton. He doesn’t care what sort of food it is, and views expiration dates as merely suggestions. Despite his goals in life, Caiphus is not compensating for something, he is actually very confident and happy with who he is. He is outgoing and friendly, and loves to make people laugh- he is an amateur comedian. He loves mixing up delicious cocktails to make other people loosen up, but watch out…he also really likes to cause mischief. He belongs to the Powerhouse club (of course). He is considering kids some day, but isn’t sure. He’s interested in mostly men, but he’s open to other experiences.

Bachelor #8: Lamar Yuan

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Lamar dreams of being a painter someday, but for now he is a writer’s assistant. Lamar works better when he is inspired. Currently, nature is his inspiration and he spends a lot of time outside. Lamar is sometimes indecisive and has a fear of committing to things…he’s moved around a lot, tried multiple jobs, and has yet to find the right partner. Lamar despises housework. While he loves being outside, he also loves the couch in his living room. Watching television and playing video games are two of his favorite activities. When he doesn’t feel like relaxing at home, he enjoys going to the spa. Lamar likes meeting new people and doesn’t want to hang out with the same people over and over again, which is why he doesn’t have interest in joining any club. He doesn’t want kids. He is mostly interested in guys, but ladies are encouraged to apply to.

 

 

Contestant #7: Kieran Ross

Contest #7 is ready to join!

Kieran Ross has been hiding in the shadows of his work for a few years, and when this showed up and he saw the opportunity for both genders to apply, he quickly snatched his chance.

12-07-15_5-21-17 PM.png

Kieran dreams of being a best-selling author, but he’d also like to find his one true love. Kieran loves reading almost as much as he loves writing. He’s romantic and likes to be inspired, but his sensitive side is balanced with a distinct “bro” attitude.

12-07-15_5-21-13 PM

Besides reading and writing, he also enjoys comedy, watching TV, shopping, swimming and meditating.

 

Community Sim #3: Eyecolor & Personality Continued

For Community Sim #3, we’ve decided: gender (male), skintone (see below), hair color, hair style, facial hair, his aspiration (deviance) and his lifetime goal (chief of mischief). So, this guy spends his days annoying people and playing pranks.

Sim3Hair7

SimsEyecolor

 

We’ve determined that CS3 wears mostly athletic clothes or sweaters and pants, and his clothes have a hint of weirdness.
