Sculpting Lessons

Hey, guys! I got Sims 4, so I was playing around with that for a bit, but I could never leave my Mendeleevs out in the cold for too long!

First up, sim ch…

Why are you all crowded in one of the empty, unlit rooms?

Screen Shot 2015-02-23 at 10.02.24 AM

Antione’s heading home from work…

Cerium is playing with Promethium…

Then she got a call to make a hamburger for someone, so I had her do that. Because there’s not much to do at the house.

I need to get used to how to take screenshots and things like that, because Sims 4 gets rid of the UI when you take a picture automatically, while Sims 3… does not, as you might have noticed. And I keep trying to go to the upper right corner of the screen to put the walls up or down.

Screen Shot 2015-02-23 at 10.10.59 AM

Hi me!

The guy who wanted the burgers happened to be right by Cerium’s work. Which was good, because it was time for her to go to work.

… I have nothing witty to say about comic books.

But they’re still in the unfurnished room.

Screen Shot 2015-02-23 at 10.14.12 AM

Then they all came in here.

Antimony: So… are you all waiting here for me to die?

Antione: Well, we want to be prepared to mourn.

Slowpoke: Hey, guys? That plant guy has some big teeth!

Screen Shot 2015-02-23 at 10.14.38 AM

Barium: Why is everyone talking about comic books, anyway?

Neo: I like comic books.

Screen Shot 2015-02-23 at 10.15.17 AM… when did you get a pink diamond, Neo?

Neo: I grabbed it out of the Matrix.

Neo: I got it from a field trip.

Screen Shot 2015-02-23 at 10.16.06 AMAnd then Antione (not Arnold) started playing the claw machine. I know because I got an update that he picked out a bag of money.

… wow, we’re rich now.

Screen Shot 2015-02-23 at 10.20.13 AM

Oh no, this guy is dying while we’re out on our family outing.

Except we went to a different lot so the Motive Mobile would do its stuff. The guy was gone when I checked on him, so maybe he really did die.

Screen Shot 2015-02-23 at 10.20.51 AM

Everyone’s really bad at dressing themselves.

… Lucy, please don’t try to get your younger sister as a ‘customer’.

Screen Shot 2015-02-23 at 10.21.38 AM

We’re at the gym now.

Arnold: And that is why genies don’t exist. We don’t have that expansion.

Screen Shot 2015-02-23 at 10.22.34 AM

Wren went home. Party pooper.

Wren: And the computer is busted.

Screen Shot 2015-02-23 at 10.23.14 AM

Fancy Shoes: I’m so glad you saved my life, Mr. Mendeleev. I was a bit worried since you let that other guy die.

Screen Shot 2015-02-23 at 10.33.40 AM

Antione has something like fifty sketches in his inventory. I feel like we have more sketches than walls.

Antione: I’m sketching a ghost feeding a cowplant.

Screen Shot 2015-02-23 at 10.34.21 AM

… shoot, I thought I had a picture of Promethium after his birthday.

Oh well, here’s Promethium eating salad instead of sleeping at three a.m. on a school night.

Since there’s not much else to do, I decided to have Cerium work on sculpting, because she was the TH that day.

Screen Shot 2015-02-23 at 10.35.50 AM

Um… Cerium?

Cerium: I know what I’m doing.

Screen Shot 2015-02-23 at 10.36.11 AM

Cerium: First, you really want to warm the hammer in your armpit. Then, become the clay. Put yourself in its place. I mean literally occupy the same physical space as the clay. Since clay doesn’t have a brain, give yourself a lobotomy with the chisel.

Screen Shot 2015-02-23 at 10.36.42 AM

Cerium: This also helps you learn how the clay feels, being chisselllll…

Screen Shot 2015-02-23 at 10.37.04 AM

Cerium: Once you recover from impaling your head with a chisel, try chiselling your leg.

Screen Shot 2015-02-23 at 10.38.20 AM

Hey Antimony. Still alive?

Antimony: No! I just stepped on a mine! Durn videogame!

I meant alive in reality, dear.

Screen Shot 2015-02-23 at 10.38.45 AM

Wren: Ugh, I’m so old…

Mangle: You know, I can help with that. Cowplant milk is notorious for making you younger…

Wren: How do I get milk from you?

Mangle: *clears nonexistent throat* Feed me,
Feed me,
Feed me,
Feed me Wrennie!
Feed me all night long~!

Screen Shot 2015-02-23 at 10.39.04 AM

Wren: I’m gonna go check if I look less wrinkly in the other mirrors.

Mangle: Feed me Wrennie,
Fee me all night long~!
Cause if you feed me Wrennie,

I can make milk to keep you young!

Screen Shot 2015-02-23 at 10.41.14 AM

Wren: I got you some food!

Mangle: Humph. I prefer a meal with a bit more… meat on it.

Slowpoke: *gasp* Like a hamburger?

Mange: Sure, kid. Let’s go with that.

Screen Shot 2015-02-23 at 10.41.40 AM

Oh nooooo Antimony!

Neo: Grandma? 8(

Screen Shot 2015-02-23 at 10.41.57 AM

Promethium: Grandma?

Death: Dammit, why do the kids have to see? I’m bad with kids… quick, come up with a way to teach them about death without traumatizing them…

Neo: Gramma? Don’t leaveeee!

Death: … um, kids like music, right? It’s the ciiiiiiiiiircle of liiiiiiiife!

Screen Shot 2015-02-23 at 10.42.17 AM

… we’re a little too busy to be thinking about crepes, game.

Screen Shot 2015-02-23 at 10.42.26 AM

Antimony: I’m ready to go to the great beyond.

Children: *wailing*

Screen Shot 2015-02-23 at 10.42.43 AM

Death disappeared immediately after.

Oh, look. Promethium’s face.

Screen Shot 2015-02-23 at 10.43.31 AMArnold: Did I make the moon angry?

That’s not how astronomy works, Arnold.

Arnold: Astro-whatnow?

Screen Shot 2015-02-23 at 10.44.14 AM

Arnold: Should we really have just woohooed in your late mother’s wardrobe?

Cerium: … you got laid, Arnold. Are you going to question it?

  1. You crack me up. Even during sad times. RIP Antimony! As fine a Sim as their ever was. I think Wren is so Purdy. And Caesium is an EXCELLENT sculptor definitely really getting into the craft *snort*.

    BTW, I feel ya on switching from TS3 to TS4, especially camera angles and walls up/down. Usually I’m happy that the UI is not captures in TS4 – it can be distracting in TS3, but also incredibly hilarious.

  2. Naw, Promethium’s face is so sad, poor bubby, he loved his grandmother quite a bit, it seems. But…dead grandparents do mean moar babies. Though I do love the ones we have now, get to know them quite well when there are only two.

    LOL at Neo and the pink diamond. From the Matrix indeed.

    I have noticed that since UL many of my sims talk about comic books – I think it’s the nerd influence they get from playing video games all the damn time.

    • And the I read Heather’s comment and I remember what I was going to ask – what do you mean about the UI in TS3 screenshots? Pressing C just gives me the screen without any of the UI, have to use a screen capture program to get moodlets and tasks and such…

      • For a while pressing ‘c’ just gave me a black screen in my screenshots folder, so I started using the Mac’s way of taking screenshots, which picks up the user interface. With Sims 3 I have to press f10 to get rid of it, but in the Sims 4 pressing tab gets rid of just about anything you wouldn’t want in your screenshot.
