Chapter 8

Well pat me on the head and call me Plumbob; it’s another chapter!


Last time on the apocalypse: Summer Holiday moved in to help us get to all that career topping we’ve got to do, and poor Watson had a very sad teen birthday 😦

Watson has perked up some since The Sad Birthday…he got all riled up from a “cleaning frenzy” and had to go for a jog to let off some steam.

Neat sims *boggle*

The mail-creature pays us another visit, so that’s §17,000 down the drain.

Mail-creature: “EheHEEehehe.”


Our poor smelly toddler finally hit the ranks of childhood!

He’s so dirty he glows?  To the sink with you young man!

10 hand washings later he was right as rain.

He’s just sad that he doesn’t get his makeover until everyone is home from work/school (otherwise my game will glitch and bring everyone home early if I enter CAS)

Moriarty: “At least I get to take the trash out; that’s fun.”


Speaking of bugs; Moriarty isn’t able to use the stairs anymore?  He was up and down like a champ as a toddler, but for some reason that’s a big nope now.

You know what game?  That’s just fine!  So now it’s a living room, dining room, kitchen, nursery, bedroom, library.  JUST FINE.

And then.

Moriarty: “Lol, JK! Stairs are fun!”

Apparently entering and exiting CAS fixed it.

He’s the handsomest of the 3 boys, in my humble opinion.

The Baelfire residence is quite the popular hangout; even more so now that Summer lives here.

J: “I bet I’ll get invited to move in before you do Zoe; I cleaned the grill, they like me here.”

3/4 orange plumbobs today…but Summer is level 3 in her career already!

One of the teens brought home his first friend!  Whichever one it was has great taste.

Summer: “Summer is not having fun anymore.”

You and me both, sister!  Summer here just got her (level 4) Field Agent promotion…she’s rapidly catching up to Miles who is still a Page 2 Journalist, and now has only 9 days until he’s an elder.

The problem with Miles was I gibbled him at the start by not realizing I could have a bookcase, combined with the fact that there is no way to make him inspired on command; I have to just hope his creative trait procs, which it seldom does.

After much deliberation, I’ve decided to put the Baelfire Apocalypse on indefinite hiatus; I need a break from this save file, as much as I love these sims, the play is very boring, repetitive, and frustrating.

Plus, this leaves more time for Amazons and Rebuilding stuff, right?  Yeah!

Take care everyone!  And Happy Simming!  x ♥ x

  1. Awww!!! Loved the family – but I get it – if the game play is repetitive and boring there isn’t a lot to write about. That’s one of the things I love about my Drifter – you’re starting over every generation so there is always something to do and a goal to work for.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this read. I hope to hear from the Baelfire family occasionally but totally get it if it’s pretty much done.

      1. Back last year sometime I had a hard drive crash and lost all my legacy saves. So I abandoned it. I just couldn’t get my founder quite right so her kids weren’t quite right and I had to cheat up all their skills again (not remembering exactly where they were) and because I despise cheating (other than my own personal non-game altering ones like hair and physique) I couldn’t continue my legacy. I still have my super quick outline of all 10 generations though and may start a new legacy in the future. We’ll see.

  2. Even though it got boring and repetitive to play, it was always fun to read 😊 Maybe you can use one of the kids as an heir and start a different challenge with them? Moxie is my favourite though 😁
