Previously at Ovanåker, Olle found a job in Dance. Elisabeth and Kevin finally found some time to learn skills needed for their respective careers. Emmy found out she was pregnant and Birgitta was born. Roland and Theodor grew up to Romance teens and Jacob and Charlie left for Uni.

Ovanåker year 101, 102-104, Wednesday, Thursday-Saturday
Elisabeth Burlin, 62, Family, LTW Education Minister
Kevin Burlin, 62, Popularity/Romance, LTW Mayor
Olle Burlin, 28, Fortune, LTW Worldclass Ballet Dancer
Emmy Burlin, 28, Pleasure, LTW 50 first dates
Linnea Burlin, 18, Family, LTW 6 grandchildren
Theodor Burlin, 14, Romance, LTW Hall of Famer
Roland Burlin, 14, Romance, LTW Woohoo 20 sims
Birgitta Burlin, 2
Sara, the cat

We start off with Kevin filling his aspiration panel – 3p!

And continue with Emmy, rolling a secondary aspiration of Grilled Cheese.

She has wished for a job in Crime for a while and accepts one as a Con Artist

Immediately she rolls a wish to stay home from work. Just wanted to have a job to skip I guess.

The elderly cat Sara doesn’t like baby Birgitta

She will not be a baby for long, though, because it’s her birthday!

This is how she’s supposed to look. She’s an extremely active Pisces.
Supposed to look, because then we had a game crash

And Birgitta is a baby again, with all the abilities of a toddler.

Linnea collects her four scolarships forgrades, body, creativity and dance and heads off to Uni.

Year 102-104

The SimGodess is worried about the baby condition that affects Birgitta, who should be a toddler.

She seems to be a normal toddler, though, but slow in learning. And she’s losing her colour and turning black. The game behaves normally though. The only thing is that the “learn to walk” animation doesn’t work, since we get a message that “someone couldn’t find bones in other character”

Other worries are Theodor’s grades. But since he’s a teen it doesn’t matter so much. In worst case there will be no uni for him

We have a lot of promotions with the adults, though, and just wait for the game to crash due to Birgitta’s condition

Both Kevin and Elisabeth need max Logic for their jobs and eventually they get there, despite them cheating all the time.

Kevin teaches the fading Birgitta to talk. She’s like a ghost – it’s scary!

She’s totally fading to black!

To distract ourselves we send the teens shopping for phones

Roland even meets a nice girl named Therese

She’s a very social girl, greeting everybody in the store. Roland has two bolts with her and Theodor one. Therefor Roland gets the honour of dating her.

They hang out like teenagers do and take some crazy photos, but nothing more happens.

Back home, the nightmare continues – Sara, the cat meets her maker

And the ghastly baby has her birthday

Close your eyes and wish…

 Wish, wish, wish!!!

YES!! Birgitta grows up to be a completely normal, brown-haired and blue-eyed little girl, and the SimGodess has never been so happy to see such an average face!

Well, that was a happy end ... if it was the end, that is. Hopefully things will be normal from now on!

(It usually helps to delete the blackened child, save and reload the lot. It will usually appear by the mailbox in its intended shape and color. Although I guess there is a risk that it might just disappear, especially when your game is as old as this.)

Didn't come to think of that solution at the time, was just happy when she grew up and looks to be normal!

Lots of scary signs of lot/game file corruption here :/ Glad that Birgitta was ok in the end and hope you don't get more strangeness here in future.

We'll see what happens. The hood is 7 years old, so no wonder if it starts to glitch on me!

Gaah! Scary! What a relief that she grew up to a perfectly normal sim kid. Is it just the hood that is 7 years old, or have you had your game installed for 7 years without re-installing? Starting fresh could be a solution to the glitches.

The game was reinstalled a few times, but not for a couple of years now. There are not so many glitches anyway, but this was one of the worst :/

WOW.....I have to admit I somewhat laughed my way through this update, although I was also worried for your game and little Brigitta. The not being able to find bones was quite interesting. I hope the game can hold on, although I know I'm also about 2 years behind, so it's obviously done OK. Have you done anything like run the Hood Checker on it just to see if it helps?

I don't have any cleaning tools or skills to check what could be wrong, but luckily it's only a few lots that seems to have problems.
