Strandbrynsvägen year 97-100 - Too Much Piano

« previous entry | next entry »
Dec. 27th, 2013 | 06:10 am

Previously at Strandbrynsvägen, we had a lot of hobby plaques and filled aspiration panels. We also had the death of Tessa (Ramirez) Tång.

7584 Strand y97

Strandbrynsvägen 407 year 97-100, Saturday to Tuesday
Elmer Tång, 76, Family/Fortune, 2nd LTW Education Minister
Hugo Mattsson, 51, Knowledge/Romance, 2nd LTW City Planner
Engla Mattsson, 51, Knowledge/Popularity, 3rd LTW Mad Scientist


7585 Party

Engla, being half Popularity nowadays, throws a party on Saturday


7586 Dinner

The get-together is ended with dinner.


7587 Elmer tre

Then it’s soon Sunday and time for a family get-together
Elmer has two daughters, Engla who lives here, and Elin, who lives with her family and other half-sister in the “alien house” Österås


7588 Hugo tree

Hugo is the youngest brother of the Mattssons, and is the only one who’s not an elder yet.


7589 Family
7590 Piano

Engla entertains her family with piano playing, and the niece plays with the parrot. She maxes her Music enthusiasm for the second time. 0 points.


7591 No job

Then she tries to find a new job in Science, but cannot find any


7592 City planner

Hugo is promoted to City Planner at age 53, but doesn’t get any points since he topped two careers already. Now he wants to become Head of SCIA, which Engla already is.


7593 No job

No job available for Hugo either


7594 Jugo elder
7595 Engla elder

And now it’s too late for both of them to find new careers. They grow up very well to elders


7596 Piano

Every waking moment, one or the other of the household plays the piano. It becomes very tedious after a while


7597 Tuning

And we end this update with the piano, that after all this use needs tuning!
Next round will probably be the last for Elmer, but otherwise we see more boredom ahead.


Strandbrynsvägen after round 26:
Elmer Tång
Hugo Mattsson
Engla Mattsson

They both looked so youthful, until they became elders! Engla in particular. I bet she would still look pretty good given the right clothes. But of course the body language does not come across well in still pictures.

It's good that they start to look their age - they nearly became grandparents recently!

Sims do love the piano. I had a child in one of my families once who literally played all day long without a break. His needs stayed ok, so I just left him to it. So I take it next round we'll be in for another wave of deaths with the aging generation?

Yes, the generation 2 is kicking the buckets! Wonder if I will get under 100 sims at some point?? :)

What I find even more annoying with the pianos is the constant busking the guests feel compelled to perform :P Otherwise I have hacks preventing guests from using stuff in an annoying way - but not for the pianos, sigh!

I haven't played Bluewater very much and I find it really fascinating that little Tessa Ramirez after a long full life doesn't exist anymore. As I keep raving about, I've never gotten beyond a generation 3 being born.

And next round should see the passing of a whole bunch of "old friends". Have you had anymore problems with you game lately, besides Allegra staying in the household Picture?

Some houses seem to be borked, but over all, the hood still works pretty well, even after 5½ years of RL time - I might be able to finish this challenge :)

Ah, I did always kind of like Engla and her family. Looks like they are slowly dying off though, as many families have happening in the next round or two.
