Färila year 105-108 - Starting Over

« previous entry | next entry »
Sep. 24th, 2016 | 04:17 pm

Previously at Färila, Amelia's was hard to get to improve in level, while the gym and later the new real estate business REAL were booming. Liam, Birgit and Anita grew up well. Lena and Gustav worked until Gustav quit to spend time with the animals.




Färila year 105-108 – Sunday to Wednesday
Leif Hartwig, 80, Popularity/Pleasure, LTW 5 successful businesses
Anita Hartwig, 54, Fortune, 2nd LTW Hand of Poseidon
Gustav Hartwig, 41, Popularity/Knowledge, LTW 20 pet best friends
Lena Hartwig, 41, Romance/Grilled Cheese, LTW Rock God
Birgit Hartwig, 13
Liam Hartwig, 8
Beta, the dog




Leif comes from the Mattsson family. The readers saw this tree just on the last lot, since we played his daughter Elisabet then. Leif lives together with his wife Anita and his son Gustav’s family. He has had a sister, but she died young in a toy train accident.




Gustav’s tree we also recognize, since it’s the same as Elisabet’s. Their mother Maja had two other children before she married Leif.




Lena comes from the Berg family. She has one sister and two nephews and a niece




Family Sunday!





Liam talks to his cousin Elias





Birgit hangs out with the older cousins Marie and Charlie




Gustav hangs out with his sister Elisabet.




Lena comes home from work promoted to Rock God, which was her LTW. 2p! Now she wants to become a Hall of Famer.




It’s a nice Sunday and on Monday Leif, who is at the end of his life goes back to his hopeless store Amelia’s. After a full day no progress whatsoever has been made in the establishment. It’s still on level 8.

----

After this the problems started for real. Leif went to another one of all the businesses he owns, a salon and spa. Problem was that when he was closing up that shop he got stuck in whistle mode even though all patrons had left the lot. I got fed up with waiting and deleted Leif from the lot, expecting him to show up at his homelot.




Which HE DIDN’T! Instead I got the message that the family visits another lot. Do you want to go there? If I say yes, we go to the spa lot but no one is there. If I say no, I’m stuck on the neighbourhood screen.
Restarted the game several times, it didn’t work. Tried to exchange the playfiles for backed up ones, but it didn’t work.




Tried to move the family out, didn’t work. Finally I used another lot and the tombstone of Life&Death to add all members to that family, then had Leif go to the computer and “move out”. Thank you Glen Nyman.





It worked!




What happened though is that they all were reset to the beginning of their current age span, the house is empty and reset to Sunday and they have no money. But they are alive.




OK, another family Sunday then




Leif decides to go to Amelia’s to try to earn some money, but instead we end up in the situation where the employees cannot get paid.





At REAL it works better. Leif becomes best friends with his employee Peter Ottomas and they take a photo series to commemorate the event.





Then he becomes best friends with Kerstin Tidholm,, and she really loves the place and gives the last loyalty star to push the business up to level 7!




Back home, Birgit spends time with family and friends even though it is suddenly Monday again.




Anita comes home with just enough money to buy a bed, which she promptly puts to good use.




Leif comes home promoted – he had to take a job to pitch in now when the family restarts their lives.




The money is transformed into kitchen appliances




Liam is always miserable when he comes from school. Today a new boy comes by and they start to play together




After that he’s a bit happier, but really needs a bath.




Birgit gossips with Anita Cormier




After the shower, Liam does some skipping. He really needs some exercise it seems, being a little soft around the middle.




Anita has enough aspiration points to acquire a secondary aspiration of Family.




Amelia’s still do not improve in level, but is a source of steady income, so Leif goes there every day. And we have suddenly noticed that this family do not age at all. J68 keep notes on when Liam is going to be a teen, when Birgit is due for Uni and when Lena and Gustav are going to be elders, but what to do with Anita and Leif who are already elders? Will we leave them to live forever or will we kill them off eventually? Only future will tell…


Färila after round 28:
Leif Hartwig
Anita Hartwig
Gustav Hartwig
Lena Hartwig
Birgit Hartwig
Liam Hartwig
Beta, the dog

That was unfortunate, but at least you managed to get them all out alive. It seems that the neighborhood glitches and computer failures are the greatest threats to Prosperity Challenges!

The hood is 8 RL years old, so no wonder... Just hope that I will be able to finish it somewhat in line with the rules.

Yikes! The problems here do not bode well for the future of this family :( Hopefully it isn't a neighborhood wide calamity. You've come so far on this and stuck with it so long I really hope you get to finish.

I hope so too. I have played the next family in line and they are aging normally so I think it's not a global problem

Scary!! Glitches always make me worry about losing the whole hood, or at least getting problems that will at some point end in losing the whole hood.

Ah - and poor Charlotte, I remember that accident. Up until then I had no idea the train sets could cause fires, but after reading about her tragic end I started adding fire alarms to those rooms too.

Can't believe I missed this comment!
Some lots in this hood are really glitched up, but will have to hold together for quite a while still. I have no generation 5 yet...

Fire alarms is a good thing! I also learned that with Charlotte's accident :(

Oh - I actually didn't notice either. I don't know if I've moaned about my work situation to you, but it seems very probable - especially taken the amount of time it has been rather..eh...crappy. That suddenly took a rather unexpected turn six weeks ago when we were re-organized, and instead of losing my job I got more and better things to do. So that's not only good, it's really, really good. But good changes seems to take a lot of energy too, not to mention the heap of assignments I took on (the overload in work is something that is only temporary due to other changes we're undertaking). So I'm exhausted - but in a good way, it you get my drift. :D I see now that you've posted a whole bunch of updates, that I _will_ comment on. Soon. I just haven't had any energy for LJ or sims related things since the abovementioned changes. But I don't plan on giving up on simming or the shrinking circle of fellow simmers that I have been following. Looking forward to reading the updates on Mattsmyra I haven't caught yet.

Oh no! Those are some bad glitches. Luckily I know you have at least another year in this hood already done. I hope it holds together!!! Scary stuff, and so weird that they stopped ageing. Really strange stuff.

There seems to be some lots that are more glitchy that others. Just hoping that I will be able to finalize this challenge
