Lottefors year 47-49, Recovery

« previous entry | next entry »
Sep. 21st, 2008 | 01:09 pm



Martin and Malva Montell are struggling with their homework, and the homework of their brother Sebastian. All homework for the children needs to be done by morning, otherwise Sebastian’s grades will drop to a disasterous level, and we cannot have that with the weekend coming up.
Social worker warnings are never fun, but especially not over the weekend, when nothing can be done to remedy the grades.




The weekend is the time for socializing and making friends. Malva is talking to Agnes Myhr about her struggle to get good grades. Agnes, who always has A+ doesn't understand the problem.

Malva's cousin Max is sitting at the table, while Uncle Daniel and Aunt Sofie are walking by.




Lunchtime really looks like a daycare center. It's redhead townie Anitra, black-haired Max of Korskrogen, blond Agnes of Myren and brunette Annika Lind of Letsbo.
 



“Thanks, Mom, for finally teaching me how to study” Martin says, leaving his bright red aspiration behind him.
"That's alright dear, I cannot imagine that you never learned as a kid. No wonder your grades have been dropping" Inger answers.




Saturday night there’s a jamming party in the garden.
Jesper is playing lead guitar, and Loke Mattsson of Mattsgården (or is it Carita's friend Clabbe Bardh?) is backing up on bass guitar.
Anna and Martin, the teens of Lottefors, are dancing the night away.





Sunday, the breakfast table is buzzing. With an 8-person household and a lot of friends, this is how you end up.




The full house is a problem for the young couple Simon and Carita. Carita wants to marry off 6 children.
Anyway, they are practicing until the day they will be allowed to try for a baby of their own.
Simon’s siblings need to leave the house first. Or his parents need to die. University for the young ones are not to far away though, so that will probably happen first.


Lottefors after round 13:
Inger Montell
Jesper Montell
Simon Montell
Carita Montell
Anna Montell
Martin Montell
Sebastian Montell
Malva Montell

Phew, what a busy house! Kinda reminds me of my own in real life, heh. Although we're not hoping to die off so the kids can make a baby any time soon, haha.

Isn't it terrible? :)
I have been thinking about installing lotfullof sims, but I think I might end up mistreating my sims, worse than I do already!

It doesn't really make a big difference unless you swear to a diet of cheesecake and Elixir of Life. I have the hack, but the only two households who actually break the limit are the ones with cheesecake twins. (And the pseudo-dorm, but that's different.) As long as you only have one pair breeding at the same time, it is hard to get more than 8-10 family members.

The problem with Lottefors is that eldest son Simon moved back into the house of his parents, with his wife who wants to marry off 6 children.
But since Simon also has four younger siblings living with their parents, the lot is full, and the fertile years of Carita are moving fast.
She will never be able to get 6 kids married off in her lifetime. She won't have time to GET 6 kids even.
But it's fine, I have never succeeded in fulfilling that want anyway, even if I'm trying for Simon's father Jesper :)

I'm a bit surprised that you didn't give him his own house and made someone else heir, when his wife had a want like that. (Of course, having grandparents to watch the babies is great, but having the babies at all is more important.)

That said, lotfullofsims would handle this nicely. The bad temptation is to move all the kids back home with their spouses and have several simultaneous breeders. Not only does this make you keep watch on 20++ sims, it will get hard to keep all the spouses in the right bed. I used to run megafamilies as a challenge and it certainly was. Great fun, but probably not something I'd combine with a Prosperity hood.

I didn't know her want was that, believe it or not. They just met in college.
Anyway, I'm still aiming for "original name on lot", and didn't want to take my chances with the younger brothers, maybe they would become romance sims?

What a busy house. It makes me think of the Yerazig/Rauscher's in Breeze Point. Mom wants to marry off 6 kids, which she has, but it's crazy, and one of the twin girls moved home and got pregnant by the the romancer Denis to keep the same last name thing alive, and it became CRAZY for about 2 rounds, since mom had child 6 a few hours after daughter baby was born....kids, and friends, and *sigh*. They are crazy.

Busy houses are fun, but you need some relaxing singles or senior citizens in between

I actually like the marry off six kids want because it gives me a good excuse for a big family. I love big families in the sims.

I think it's a bit of a hassle. To get six kids born work alright most of the time, but then they need to grow up and get married before the parent dies, and that can be hard without the elixir, which I'm not using in Mattsmyra
