The Waiting Game

I keep waiting, waiting. Waiting for my new TH to grow.

Screen Shot 2014-02-22 at 8.33.50 AM

I come back to the game, ready to play my sims and slightly out of my mind due to a late night anime marathon with a club. The parents are still away and… Vaughn and Technetium are like a week younger? I think. I could’ve sworn they were close to aging up when I closed out. I needed to do the heir poll before Tech was YA.

Technetium: We found the fountain of youth while we were gone. Going to prom again sounds pretty good.

Our new heiress, everyone!

Palladium: First this legacy, then the world!

Screen Shot 2014-02-22 at 8.36.30 AM

Usually it’s a teen from another household that tells you to throw a party and acts as a bad influence.

Palladium: Kekekekeke.

Ignore the locked wish; I had a brain blip and forgot that ‘new TH’ didn’t mean right away. : / I deleted it when I remembered, although I know some people play ISBIs where they can lock the wishes, I just wanna stay consistent with how I’ve played mine.

Rhodium, on the other hand, is on the ball today. I didn’t catch it in pictures… and due to the lighting what I DID catch can barely be called a picture… but when I went to check on her she was kissing this guy on her own, and made it to romantic interests. All by herself! *is proud*

Screen Shot 2014-02-22 at 8.39.18 AM

I mean, it’s too bad that the guy is also romantic interests with Technetium, but there are only two teenaged guys in town (or teenagers that weren’t Mendeleevs in general), so there was really know avoiding it.

I recently got Story Progression from Nraas to work again, though, so fingers crossed that will help.

I considered resetting her, since she looked like she was stuck (why else would you pass out in a random alley instead of going home… don’t answer that) when…

Screen Shot 2014-02-22 at 8.40.53 AM

I had to screw with this a lot just so you could see it, but SHE GOT IN A TAXI TO GO HOME.


Screen Shot 2014-02-22 at 8.41.27 AM

This is Technetium’s guy (and now Rhodium’s as well). His name is Richard or something. I’m gonna call him Dick. He has an elf hat.

Screen Shot 2014-02-22 at 8.44.52 AM

I gave him a makeover and made his face more interesting.

You’re so lucky you’re not part of the household, Dick. Sooo lucky. >: (

Screen Shot 2014-02-22 at 8.50.58 AM

Ruthenium: Books.

Palladium: You have other traits, don’t you? Maybe you could use them?

Ruthenium: Books.

Palladium: … this is why you’re not heir and I am.

Screen Shot 2014-02-22 at 8.51.32 AM

Yttrium: And that concludes our scenic two-day tour of this busted-ass railroad track. Let’s go home.

Nervous: FINALLY. I was promised a pool!

Screen Shot 2014-02-22 at 8.53.05 AM

Palladium: By mom, off to school! *abscond*

Yttrium: Damn, I was gonna scold her for not being in school.

Screen Shot 2014-02-22 at 8.53.38 AM

Yttrium: Wait! I still can! Why aren’t you in school, young lady?

Palladium: Because you stopped me?

Yttrium: And why do you have BREASTS all of a sudden?

Palladium: Um…

Dick: By Palli, thanks for the awesome and apparently illegal party! đŸ˜€

Palladium: … thanks.

Screen Shot 2014-02-22 at 8.54.35 AM

Then she got grounded for (I thought at the time, at least) pranking the sink.

Screen Shot 2014-02-22 at 8.54.57 AM

Yttrium: I don’t want to let you off the hook, since you did pressure your older sister into throwing a party when you KNOW it’s illegal according to our psychic police force, but  you kind of have to go to school.

Screen Shot 2014-02-22 at 8.58.06 AM

Technetium and Rhodium shun Palladium for being the next TH.

Technetium: I don’t get why people voted for her when we’re both prettier. : / Plus I got honor roll so yeah I’m awesome.

Screen Shot 2014-02-22 at 8.59.11 AM

If you pass out, I swear to FSM…

Screen Shot 2014-02-22 at 9.00.21 AM

Just showcasing all of the flowers Technetium received from Dick.

Screen Shot 2014-02-22 at 9.01.23 AM

Anyway, Palli wasn’t the only one to be grounded by Nervous, so I had to send Yttrium all around to let everyone off the hook. It was either the party or the dirty dishes, as far as I can tell, that set him off.

Screen Shot 2014-02-22 at 9.03.32 AM

Current and future THs take a photo together. The serious one was a dud, but the silly one had no copies first try. This pleases me.

Screen Shot 2014-02-22 at 9.05.51 AM

Nervous is old now. Which is strange because I don’t think his age bar was full. But okay.  Screen Shot 2014-02-22 at 9.08.57 AM

Yttrium: … are we sure we can trust her with the family? She can’t work a shower.

Palladium: I thought the point of technology was to make things easier. : /

Screen Shot 2014-02-22 at 9.23.58 AM

I thought this was cute because mother and daughter were both painting.

Screen Shot 2014-02-22 at 9.24.23 AM

Emily has a kite. The stuff from the toy machine is apparently functional, so once Palli pops some kidlets I might have to use them to test some of the other toys we got. :3

Screen Shot 2014-02-22 at 9.24.58 AM

Wait, what?

Screen Shot 2014-02-22 at 9.25.25 AM

Emily: La di da, I love my toy.

… they’ve teamed up, guys. It was nice knowing you.

Screen Shot 2014-02-22 at 9.25.43 AM

And I just realized the computer looks like a Tochlafane… we’re doomed.

Emily: Here come the drums, here come the drums. ♫

“Only the First Law of Plumbotics keeps her from conquering the world.”

Technetium aged up into a beauty, since I shortened the teenage years just to get through them for now. : / Her fifth trait is Something. I honestly wasn’t paying attention, but she wants to be an athlete. I think.

Screen Shot 2014-02-22 at 9.45.35 AM

I didn’t bother with Vaughn’s clothes ’cause I was lazy and didn’t care at that poing. That being said, I hate that shirt. It’s very obviously pixely and ugly, although I’m not sure if it shows up better in other people’s games or with different graphics?

Screen Shot 2014-02-22 at 9.47.47 AM


Vaughn: Palladium stole the toilet. ;_;

Palladium: Kekekekeke!

  1. Aw, sad to see Technetium didn’t win heir, but yay new Mendeleev chapter!

    Is playing an ISBI challenging? There’s a lot of sims, but you’re not taking care of them, so I was wondering how hard it is. I’ve been thinking about maybe doing one next year.

    • I thought it would be more challenging, but I feel like on some levels it’s easier than playing normally. There’s only one sim to control, so when the house is all starving and needing to pee you can just let them sort themselves out without needing to worry too much. And there’s no needing to worry about sending this one off to skill and that one off to find a boyfriend and then the skilling one’s on the computer and when you get back the potential boyfriend’s been randomly slapped…
      I’d say the most stressful part is the shortened timeframe, since you only really have from the first day they’re YA to play matchmaker, and then have to have them pretty much done with their LTW by the time the next TH ages up. Or when a sim’s about to die and you just kind of have to watch and see if they get away save themselves or not.
