Långhed year 75-79, No Clones

« previous entry | next entry »
Oct. 24th, 2010 | 02:49 pm


Previously at Långhed, Kevin started a career in Oceanography and got promoted to Sea Lice Assistant. Oscar found his preferred hobby, which is Nature and grew up to child. Vidar and Saga were born and grew up to toddlers. Agnes couldn't cope with the housework, so her mother Marita spent almost all her time in her daughter's house, to help out.



We start at the aftermath of the tiresome toddler party last round. Agnes is stinking, but still tries to clean up a bit in he underwear.

 

Her mother Marita, who were such a great help to her last round, passed away. Luckily she left her daughter some money, which is most welcome. This house has a lack of everything!



And next thing we know is that Agnes is pregnant again. We’ll see if it lasts...



Luckily it’s still summer, since Saga sneaks out in her pyjamas to catch the pretty fireflies
Vidar is not so lucky, falling asleep in the sun with his mittens on. How will this family ever manage 6 kids? (Kevin’s LTW)



Oscar, the eldest son, is helping out with doing his chores without complaining. He takes out the trash. There are enormous amounts of garbage produced in this house with two toddlers, and a nanny who overfeeds them.



Oscar is a good big brother, too, and shares his toys with his little sister.
Or not! That was really mean, Oscar! And I find it realistic, more than the sickenly sweet sibling relations we usually have here in Mattsmyra.




Even though she’s pretty messed up, Agnes is able to cook for her family, and she had her second pop. Now lets’s hope this ends well.



Oscar gives his brother the same treatment as their sister got. Well, at least he doesn’t play favourites…



Oscar is a servant to the eye, playing nice with his mother, when he quits tormenting his brother and sister. Today is Sunday, and Agnes’ brother Rolf and his family are invited for lunch.



The Myhr family is one of the smallest of the original families. Evert was a CAS teen and grew up without his CAS mother, who married into the Mattsson clan. Therefore, his half-sister Thea is a Mattsson descendant and the only Myhrs are Evert’s two children Rolf and Agnes and their children.

However, the only ones who keep the Myhr name is Rolf, his wife Britta and their two daughters Ulrika and Alva.



The main attraction for today should really be the twins’ birthday, but it gets over-shadowed by the birth of yet another baby or two.

It’s only one baby, and as a consequence it’s a girl. She’s born on September 16th ’77 8.46pm, and gets Popular name no 71 – Svea. That should be the most Swedish name of all, since a nickname for Sweden is Moder Svea – Mother Svea.

There’s a big risk she’s a clone of Oscar, since j68 forgot to randomize her. Additionally, she’s only Rodiek child number four, so we’ll have to go through this again, at least once.



Anyway, we’re getting rid of the toddlers now! Saga first. And then Vidar. I don’t even know if the father or the child stinks the most.



Vidar immediately (after a bath) starts playing video games, and we find that his True Hobby is NOT Games.
Saga crawls into her parents’ bed before we can get a picture of her.



The first day the three elder kids all go to school, Agnes finally finds time to get dressed and to do some housework. Svea is sleeping in her crib.
She even finds some time to play with her long forgotten handgame.



She also applies for a job as a Prep Cook in the Culinary career. It will go perfectly together with her Culinary hobby.



Saga brings Emmy Benett with her home, but Vidar entertains her. Instead Saga beats Oscar to the computer. He deserves it due to the bullying of her that he did when she was little.



Kevin arrives home early, fired due to cheating with replacing some specimens. The family’s collected funds are now exactly 0§, and they still don’t own a bookcase or have beds for all their children. Good thing Svea won’t be outgrowing her crib for a while.

At the same time, we get evidence that Saga is a brilliant little girl, and tops her grades before any of her brothers.



Luckily for Svea, Vidar won 225§ in a spelling contest today, so the family can afford a birthday cake for her.

Svea grows up into a pretty dress, and reveals that she’s not a clone of any of her siblings. She’s an extremely playful and extremely active Sagittarius, and she’s got a blond hair recessive gene, like Oscar. The others have a red recessive from Mormor Marita.


 

Långhed after round 21:
Agnes Rodiek
Kevin Rodiek
Oscar Rodiek
Saga Rodiek
Vidar Rodiek
Svea Rodiek

Saga grew up to be fairly cute, as well as smart!

It is rather unusual for a family to be that poor this late in the story, is it not? And no rich relatives to help them out either. Perhaps one of them could find some income opportunity downtown on their spare time. It is too bad that the kids don't have beds for the night. -_-

This is a fairly new-founded household, and Agnes didn't have a job before, so they have been struggling with one salary and a lot of mouths to feed.
Maybe I should let them start a pharmacy and sell ready-made comfort soup :)

You know, that's an amazing idea! Better yet if you could get the customers to actually eat it, so as to cut down on the frequent epidemics that plague your village.

I imagine the contrast between playing the struggling houses like this one and playing the rich ones must help keep things interesting, though you can't help but feel sorry for the good families like this one that can barely afford to feed the too-many kids they want. And of course it has to be the poorest ones that want the most children... Good job with this family. Hope things continue to go so well for them.

Yeah isn't it amazing that the newly-founded houses are the one's where one, or two, of the sims wants 6 kids?! :)

It is a good thing that Svea is not a clone. I hate getting clone children. It seems that this family could really benefit from some money!

Since all the kids look so much alike, I was worried that I might have clones, but they're not and I like that :)
Moneywise, it didn't help that Kevin got fired... :/

I don't think I've seen that teasing with the toys!

Also, what I've been doing (is this cheating? I don't know) is giving my sims things for their inventory as teens, so when they move into their own homes, they don't start from scratch...I figure in real life if kids come from rich families they start out better, so why not here?

Of course, the challenge of a poor house can be entertaining too.

Since you can do it in game it's not cheating. Problem is I'm too lazy to prepare :)
If a Uni kid wishes to buy something, or "collects" something I usually put it in their inventory, but not all of them do that.

This is a cute little family... too bad they're so poor. It is difficult to start out a family sim couple in a new home because they want kids before they are financially responsible enough to have them, heh. Good luck to Agnes in her new career and good luck successfully carrying 2 more babies... hopefully you can get it out of the way in one shot with another set of twins.

It would be the easiest way, if we could have a set of twins. I really thought that Scea would have been two already, but no.

Stuff her full of cheesecake during her next pregnancy so she'll have twins for you :)

Wow, this poor family is so sweet. Svea is a very cute little girl. I feel very sad that the Myhr family name is likely going to die out...unless one of the girls is gay. I don't remember now....but they just have girls, which means no boys to carry on the name....:(

We will solve the name problem the Swedish way - children out of wedlock.
The heiress will not marry her children's father even if they live together. Then they will get her name and can carry it on. We won't even loose Prosperity points, since we can keep to "all marriages take the husband's name" :D

Very true. I technically did that with Ekene in my hood as the Yerazig's had no boys.
