Tallåsen year 88-92 - Rainy Wedding

« previous entry | next entry »
Jun. 9th, 2012 | 03:34 pm

Previously at Tallåsen, Martin and Sofie were alone in their big house with Melissa off at Uni. Sofie reached her second LTW of becoming the Law and grew up very well to elder. Martin fixed the plumbing in his IKEA store and worked it to level 8. And lastly, the couple adopted a random kitten they named Random.



Tallåsen year 88, 89-92 – Thursday to Monday



Sophie Montell, 55, Fortune
Martin Montell, 53, Fortune
Gumman, the poodle
Random, the kitten




Martin owns the local IKEA store, and works it so well that it reaches level 9. The customers buy more and more stuff every day – look at the golden shopping bag! J



Back home, Martin puts a turkey in the oven for his birthday. Then he grows up well to elder when the turkey catches on fire!



Melissa comes home from University with a lot of skills and an SCL examina in Psychology. Gumman welcomes her.



Immediately she tries to find a job in her desired career of Law. She takes a job in the Military when she can’t find one.



New job landed, and a boyfriend willing to move in Melissa’s got. 



Måns doesn’t like brown hair, so Melissa goes for something completely different and the relationship goes from two bolts to three.



Måns can’t stop thinking about Melissa in her new hot hair. He tries to find a job in the Athlectics career, but has no luck.




In the meantime, Leif Hartwig pushes IKEA over the edge to level 10. Martin is pleased, but contains his feelings.



Martin closes up IKEA and goes home to sell it. That pushes him over the edge of his IW to earn 100.000§, if didn’t already before – the SimGodess has a bad memory. 3p



Instead he buys the local mall.




Sofie comes home promoted to Underwater Blaster  and then Marine Biologist. The bonus pushes her over the edge for her IW to earn 100.000§. 3p!



And that in turn gets her enough aspiration pints to claim a secondary aspiration of Family. Yay, Comfort Soup!



Martin no more than sets his foot in his new mall before it reaches level 1.



Then, engagement. Melissa’s blue eyes glitter when she sees the rock. 



Måns is a Popularity sim, but still gets a bad memory from the engagement.



That afternoon it’s time for the stinky poodle Gumman to leave this earth. The house is so cluttered with stuff that it’s impossible to get good pictures in some rooms.



The wedding is held on Family Sunday. Sofie’s two sisters Lena and Agnes with husbands Max and Georg gets invited.



Martin is a Montell and his brothers and sisters are all invited with their spouses – Simon and Carita, Barbro and David, Anna and Allan, Malva and Malcom and Sebastian and Rut.



Since it’s raining, the lot is lagging, and all Melissa’s 16 cousins with spouses are not invited. The SimGodess’ computer can’t handle that. The scorched sim is Malva, Martin’s sister. She got hit by lightning on another lot.



Lightning strikes again, and the wedding is off with a bang!



There’s no waiting for it, the ceremony starts immediately after the rain puts the fire out.



And a low graphics kiss ends it.



The rain pours down all afternoon, so the reception is kept indoors.



By the time the car comes to pick the newly-weds up, the rain has finally stopped.



Back to the toils of every day, Sofie gets promoted to Whale Tracker



And deep Sea Fisherman



Martin gets his mall to level 2. The flower section is most popular.



Martin’s employees are working on their skills while the store develops.



And at the end of the day we reach level 3.



Melissa gets promoted to Astronaut and brings her friend Anna with her home.



Melissa, who is now called Ljunggren, still wishes for a job in Law, though, and when an opportunity shows itself she accepts a job as an Entertainment Attorney.



And Måns finally finds a job in Athletics, as a Starter.



And as an end note, the Fortune sims Martin and Sofie wishes for another random kitten now when the kitten Random is grown-up, so Irratic is adopted. Next time, the readers might get a glimpse of the now adult cat.



Tallåsen after round 23:

Sofie Montell
Martin Montell
Måns Ljunggren
Melissa (Montell) Ljunggren
Random, the cat
Irratic, the kitten

YAY! Comfort soup! ^_^
And something about the kitten names make me think that you don't quite consider them Most Valued Playables...

"you don't quite consider them Most Valued Playables..."

This made me laugh! :D You can always tell the favourite Sims from the not-so-favoured.

Pets are overrated - that's valid both in the sims and IRL. I'm not a family sim if you can't tell :)

I'd agree about pets being overrated in the game. I rarely have/let my sims get them because I mostly just find them annoying to deal with. I do like pets IRL though, and we've always had several of them.

I feel it's a Family and/or Popularity thing to want a pet. When my full-blood Fortune sims wish for kittens I find it Random and Irratic :)

I never noticed that the shopping bags change as the level increased! Good work achieving the "golden bag," Martin!

I don't usually approve of gals changing to please some guy, but I must admit, Melissa's blue hair looks fun!

"The wedding is off with a bang" made me laugh! :D There's nothing like a traditional Sim wedding.

It was an extremely lagging wedding due to the full day of rain, so my computer and I really struggled to get through it :)

Actually the bags change based on how much they're buying I think. A gold bag indicates that the sim is buying stuff worth a lot of $$ from the business.

Ah! That would explain why I haven't seen it. My Sims have achieved high-level businesses, but they get there by selling cheap stuff. ;)

I believe so too, that it's an individual thing

Great update as always. Lots going on with this lot it seems. Congrats on the lvl 10 business, and looks like he's off to a roaring start with the mall. Too bad about Gumman. Hopefully no one was too upset by his passing.

Gumman was mostly totally ignored. The family only wishes for Random Irratic kittens ;)

Inspired writing! I snickered my way through this update. :D

I really envy your business building skills. I keep trying but one day with a business is usually enough to make me a wreck.

Business success depends on the sim. Martin is quite easy to deal with, but Leif Hartwig drives me crazy. They both run their businesses the same way, but still Martin succeeds and Leif does not

Good job with the businesses. I'm currently struggling my way through the Kimon 2 house where Hua-Ling is STILL working on her 5 businesses. She just reached her 3rd tonight....FINALLY. Love the wishes for very random pet. :)

MArtin is now my best chance to reach 5 top-level businesses, since one other splayer is out of the game...
I really hope he can do it. Then I can reroll all other sims that gets that LTW in the future :)
