Korskrogen year 109-112 - Big Scare

« previous entry | next entry »
Jul. 18th, 2019 | 07:52 am

Previously, Noel reached the top of the Slacker career without getting any points. Caroline worked undevotedly on her 20 lovers LTW. Charlie and Jonathan grew up to Fortune and Family teens and were enrolled in private school. Stina, Tony and the dogs were ignored as usual.

Korskrogen year 109-112, Friday to Tuesday

Noel Bard, 66, Romance/Grilled cheese, 4th LTW Eat 200 Grilled Cheese

Caroline Johansson, 63, Romance, LTW 20 loves

Stina Johansson, 63, Family/Grilled cheese, 3rd LTW Graduate 3 kids from Uni

Tony Johansson, 45, Fortune, LTW Business Tycoon

Charlie Johansson, 13, Fortune, Chief of Staff

Jonathan Johansson, 13, Family, Graduate 3 kids from uni

Rio and Janeiro, dogs


We start the update with some skilling, but in Caroline’s case it’s only entertainment since she maxed her creativity.




She’s also entertaining others. She collects loves, but she’s really struggling with it, since she loves her Noel so much. The first names on the list that are not love interests are her children Alexander and Maja. She invites Aron Wern who is next on the seduction list




He’s a bit shy at first, but soon he lets go.



To a point.



Noel is not the jealous type



Or is he?



No, he’s only waiting for his turn.





Jonathan and Charlie spends Friday night downtown, taking pictures, meeting people and buying cell phones



Tony works on his creativity. He’s a vice president and wants more skills, to eventually get promoted we assume.



Jonathan is a Family sim and wants a date, so he invites Eva Wern over.



Turns out she’s Family too, so this might be a good match.



They try to play bowling in knee-deep snow, but the ball isn’t even visible.



Instead they share their first kiss.



They like each other very much



Noel joins the house band and gets a plaque. 1p!



Charlie wants to earn some money and accepts a job as a piano tuner.



Then the boys do their homework together.



Caroline spends her Saturday night trying to reach her LTW. It’s a real chore for her. The family owns a community lot, so she takes Gustav Hartwig there.





Another love – not sure how many more to go. At least it fulfilled her Woohoo 10 sims wish.




Next – Aron!



Next – Catrin



Next she invites Åsa Flyckt, but it has been so long that we forgot they are related. Åsa is Caroline’s cousin. Oops!



Axel Eriksson is a crossed out bolt, but we need to get this done. They have a nearly 30 relationship.



Go Caroline!



When we’re up to 79 he’s a two-bolter



YAY!! Caroline finally reaches her LTW! 1p! Omg, so much work for just one point. Why do we do this?



Now she wants 50 first dates. NO! That’s the sole reason we changed your aspiration in college, remember? So Caroline heads home for family Sunday.



Noel descends from a combination of the Myhr and Mattsson families. His mother Thea was the first gen 2 baby born in Mattsmyra. He’s got a twin brother, Simon, and a half brother, Jörgen, from father Cristopher and half-alien Vera Johansson



Caroline is an original Johansson. Her mother Livia was not a good mother, and Caroline had a brother, Max, who was taken by social service but later adopted to Caroline's uncle's mistress.



Stina is Caroline’s cousin. Daniel, Stina’s father, was brother to Caroline’s mother Livia. Daniel was an adultering bastard, making his mistress pregnant at the same time as his wife. Therefor, Stina has a half-sister named Åsa, who is Caroline’s cousin as well, as we remembered in the romancing spree. Stina married Tony late in life and had her twin boys Charlie and Jonathan with him.



Since this save has behaved so well, we risk a summoned Family Sunday.




Which we shouldn’t have done! Serious crashing occurs as soon as the time reaches 9.30 for some reason. After many attempts it’s decided that the family must be moved out and back in. Let’s pretend they lost everything in a fire and the house has been rebuilt.



In the new attempt, only Caroline and Noel’s children are invited. Noel serves Grilled Cheese to Alexander and his pregnant wife Saga (generation 5 is coming!)




The boys argue about aliens, but apparently it’s not so bad, since they become best friends at the same time.



The old ladies are playing catch in the early spring weather. Behind them we see the headstones of the ancestors



And we end this update with an active grandmother. We all had a big scare that this lot might become unplayable, but we made it through it, and we can be happy the headstones were still at the lot when we moved back.



Korskrogen after round 29:
Noel Bardh
Caroline Johansson
Stina Johansson
Tony Johansson
Charlie Johansson
Jonathan Johansson
Rio and Janeiro, dogs

Glad the game survived! I was amused to see the two family sims seemingly get 1000000 points for their first kiss. A near-perfect shot! ^_^
Long live Mattsmyra!

Go you, Caroline! I admit this is one LTW I stay away from. I would rather do 50 dates...but on the other hand I use the Wishing Well to do it to hurry up and get all the participants lined up. lol One thing is the same, teens heading downtown to get cell phones. Nice update despite the game crash. Great recovery!!!!

Thanks! I never managed to get the wishing well, but I hear there is someone called ASimWen that has a good guide for it ;)

Whew, another successful house even with the crash. The poor family losing everything in a fire. ;) Nice job finally getting Caroline her LTW, that one does take a while. Now she can just stay happy with Noel. :) Gen5 is so close!

She had that LTW when she became a teen, but I didn't like it, so changed her in college and ended up with the even worse 20 loves, and now we're back on 50 first dates! :DThere really should be more points for those LTWs :)

That what I would call an open relationship. With that LTW, she's lucky to have such an understanding partner (I wouldn't be...). What a chore to get that done! When I played TS2, I just tried to fulfill the knowledge based LTWs. All the work you put in for just one point... But then again, that's why I've never tried a challenge, I'm more playing with dollies than playing a game. But then again (again), that's why I find this blog so interesting. I still learn things, even if I don't play this game anymore. Also - I read it because it's funny. The wohooing on the park bench had me snorting this time. That, and your dertermined and brisk comments about finishing that LTW. :D

Was Alex that child that would get kidnapped by the social worker as soon as he got adopted because his meters were so down already when he arrived? Where you had to cheat and delete the social worker (if I remember correctly).

It was fun to see an overview of the hood. I got the feeling we don't get to see those often.

I was very surprised when Noel didn't react to the kissing, but he actually fulfilled both the 20 woohoos and 20 loves LTWs so maybe he knows what it's like :)
You're completely right about Alex, it was an ordeal! And when I think about that, maybe this lot has always been a bit glitched...

The naked woohooing on a park bench in the midst of snow drifts was pretty wild :p Glad she didn't have to do too much of that or the poor thing might have frozen to death in pursuit of her LTW. Congratulations on finishing it, and don't blame you one bit for not wanting to do the 50 dates. Great save at the end!

It was really a struggle to get this done. Noel had more fun when he did his :)
