Sörbo year 75-79, The General

« previous entry | next entry »
Sep. 18th, 2010 | 05:19 pm

Previously at Sörbo, Gerd moved out to start her University studies. Alfa hated the school bus, the delivery truck and the mailwoman. Benny grew up to an adult dog. Louise flirted with My Montell, her intended. Adam and Aron grew up to teens, claiming a Pleasure and Fortune aspiration.



Alfa and Benny was in a fight, and Alfa lost. Then she ran away from home.

 

Adam: “Hello, Animal Control? Yes, you know, our dog Alfa just ran away. She's a small foxhound. Can you keep an eye out for her?”



Adam’s sister and brother, Louise and Aron, spend Sunday playing chess. They are building skills to get University scolarships. Louise will go to Uni on Tuesday. 




Jerry, who just wants to have three kids that have a University degree, works in Show Business. Today he was promoted to Leading Man.



Aron is a typical Fortune teen and wants to attend private school. The headmaster is invited, but Aron is at work in his Adventure job, so Adam greets him when he arrives.

While Adam is giving the headmaster the house tour, Aron comes home promoted to Spelunker.



And while cooking for the headmaster, Ingeborg grows up very well to elder.



Unfortunately, she burns the porkchops, and looks a little worried about it.
The dinner is going fine, though, with all the family sitting around the table and the discussion revolving around Jerry’s latest film project.

Ingeborg didn’t have to worry. The headmaster is very happy with the meal and the reception he had at the Wern house. Louise, Adam and Aron are accepted in private school.



However, Louise will not take the opportunity to go to private school, since she’s ready to start her university studies. She gets five scholarships – for grades, mechanical, body, logic and dance. We will follow her up to and including her Junior year in the Uni update.



At an age of 54, Ingeborg reaches her Lifetime goal of becoming a General. Since it’s the top of the Military career, we get 2p!
Her new LTW is to become a Rock God. That will not happen, since she’s too old!



Adam, who is a Pleasure sim, spends his afternoon in his pyjamas, dating a girl named Vanessa. She’s a two-bolter.
And that night he gets his first kiss from her… Ah, young romance!



While the teens are dating, Jerry arrives home from work and turns into an elder. He lost his hair! Well, he’ll have to leave the casanova roles behind him and start playing a grandfather instead.



Aron concentrates more on his career and school work. He doesn’t have any wishes for a girlfriend, even though he’s got one already – Ulrika Myhr.

Today Aron was promoted to the top of his teen career as an adventurer. He’s now a multiregional one or other.



Cool! Another TOC that has a helicopter pool! Ingeborg is my first General ever, so this was a first, too!



Just when Ingeborg left for work, Sanjay Ramaswami came by with Alfa, who has been away a few days. Let’s see if she stays this time.

Ingeborg wants to prevent that the dogs are gone so long if they run away again, so she goes to the petshop to buy them collars.

Carita seems to collect info for gossiping. Or she didn’t know Ingeborg was so old.



That night, Aron gets demoted to Spelunker again due to a bad chance card, but he still claims he had a great week. Well, congratulations!Unfortunately he loses his scolarship for young entrepreneurs in the process.

On the other hand, Jerry gets promoted to Blockbuster Director and gets to ride a limo pool!
And there the time is up for this update. See you next time!
 



Sörbo after round 21:
Ingeborg Wern
Jerry Wern
Aron Wern
Adam Wern
Alfa, the foxhound
Benny, the collie

I am not a big fan of the helicopter as replacement for carpool, the sound cause my sims to stop and hold their ears. But it does have a certain novelty value. ^_^

A lot more going on here than the last lot, but seems like most everything went fairly smoothly. Too bad about Aron losing his scholarship though. Will he be able to get it back if he gets re-promoted? I so seldom let my teens work that I'm not very familiar with how that works with relation to the scholarships.

I guess he can apply for it again if he reaches the top again, I have never tried it either.

He can. I've had teens promoted and demoted all the time. I just have them check right before they leave for uni for scholarships and as long as he is at the top when he leaves he'll get it.

The kids in this house are so functional compared to all your other crazy romance teens. Good luck to Louise at uni! I think the Mr. Clean look really suits Jerry in his old age. I'm glad they found Alfa even though she can be disagreeable -- I once bought collars for my pets in one house but I couldn't figure out how to put the collars on the pets so I gave up, heh.

You go to the mirror and choose "Change the look of.. petname" Then on the last tab you can choose collars. You can change the colours of their fur, too, but that's just not realistic :D

I didn't know that pets could even be returned if they didn't have a collar so that is news for me!

I haven't had many pets running away, but they are always returned sooner or later according to my experience

This just reiterates I shouldn't get pets...I couldn't deal with them running away! Then again, I suppose if I gave them all cats instead of dogs, I wouldn't care quite so much.

But that's just me.

I have found, with playing prosperity now for 2½ years, I'm getting more matter-of-fact instead of soft. And it's more fun :)
Alfa ran away - so be it. Alfa came back - fine. It's all part of the divine plan.
And i'll let you in on a secret: there's no such thing as a divine plan, only deranged simmers dictating our lives ;)

Well that was a very nice, functional, house. They seem to be doing quite while. I feel kind of sad the Ingeborg is grown old now...I always liked her!

I'm so soft with my prosperity, but I'm thinking of playing some fellowships and just trying to be more mater-of-fact about everything...if things don't work out, then they don't work out....but for Breeze Point I still care too much. lol

I have started being more matter-of-fact. It's too boring to see everybody completely happy and well-behaved. If the sims want to ruin their marriages or do something stupid, I let them. It's more interesting :)

Cool look for Jerry - from what I can see of him in the sparse light. Bald head and mustache, very fitting. He looks the part! :)
I also try to make my hoods a little more realistic, it gets really boring otherwise. I am tired of everyone reaching old age - and every single sim child having top grades. I even consider uninstalling all the fire- and burglar alarms to make life a little more risky for them. But I don't know about that ... at least not the fire alarms.

You're catching up with Mattsmyra in an impressive speed!
If you want realistic, pay a visit to Chickadeelee - she's got tons of rules for herself and her sims regarding college and everything. That's impressive too! :)
