Ovanåker year 50-53, Another man's bread

« previous entry | next entry »
Dec. 4th, 2008 | 06:39 am

Last time this couple lived at Svedja, but moved to Ovanåker at the end of the round. Jack got a promotion, Stella was studying and they arranged a poker night.



Stella Mattsson and her live-in boyfriend Jack are furnishing their new home at Ovanåker (Upper Field) in an exclusive way. The dominant colour is blue. Conveniently enough, Stella’s father Dan leaves her a considerable heritage when he’s passing on.




Then the couple goes for an outing with some friends and seizes the opportunity to have some public woohoo.




Then Stella goes home to max her Cooking skill.



Time really flies – the last CAS-toddler is now an elder. Stella grows up well, way to go!




Jack is fixing the computer that Stella is always breaking. I don’t know how she’ll be able to ever finish her novel, when the computer is never working.

Let's hope they still have many good years left! You really are ahead of me now, my CAS toddlers are still adults. Of course, life span is longer in the Near Future, and they all spent quite a bit of time in college. But still. It will be a sad day when they are all gone - but I'm sure there will be someone willing to take over the house. ^_^ One man's death is another man's bread, after all...

College was only introduced in round 10 (about year 36), so this generation didn't have that chance.
I already see results of the higher education though - I've got a couple of graduates with a chance to fulfill their LTW before retirement, has never (I mean EVER in my years of playing) happened before!

Yes, university takes some work but is totally worth it in so many ways. The career boost is shocking, unless you restrict them artificially like I do. If they have been skilling enough in college, they can go into jobs only two steps from the top (or is it one, I am not sure). So career wants are now trivially easy, and career hoppers can fill their homes with rewards. I had to tone it down, but Uni still makes a huge difference.

Wow, congrats! My CAS toddlers are newly married, gahh, seems like I've been doing this forever! Maybe now that I play 3 days a round instead of one it'll help move things along. :)

I started out already in May and has put in a lot of time in this challenge. Also, I don't use age cheats, so this is what happens after 53 years :)

Wow the last CAS toddler is an elder....sad. All my toddlers are now adults just recently graduated from college and are almost all married. They will all be at the end of the current round in Breeze Point. I don't want them to grow old and die. lol

Wow. It's crazy to think that all of the tots are elders now. But I love that about playing a whole neighborhood. It's awesome that you have gone so far (and further, I know, I just haven't read that far). :)
