Generations - Can you feel the (vampire) love?

Ahh, good morning/afternoon/night simmers! You know what time it is...

Time for a lightning-quick update!

Traits: Genius, Loves the Outdoors
Guess who just had a birthday! He's already starting to remind me of Moses.

As soon as Alex grew up, he whipped out his imaginary friend, Moof. At  first, he was just calmly singing to it, but I decided that singing was too gentle for a toddler... I made him chomp Moof's ear. ;)

This picture really has nothing to do with the Camdens, but I just really liked this picture from Bridgeport. Everyone, meet Ella Cartez, in all her childhood glory. Doesn't she look so proud of herself?

In this picture, she is wearing an outfit and a hairstyle that came with Generations. *cough* someone please convert that hairstyle *cough*

I've been missing Angie sorta, so I think I'll go ahead and visit the Dillards for a sec...

 A photo of the remastered Goth home, where the Dillards now reside (with graphical errors to boot!)

Thame: Flirty, Natural Cook, Virtuoso, Genius, Artistic Angellique: Perceptive, Eccentric
 Thame had a birthday, and is currently seen playing with her baby sister Angellique. I think that interaction is called "the claw".

Unfortunately, I do admit to editing Thame in CAS just a tiny bit, because Angie's bone structure does not compliment Beau's freakish eyes in the slightest. She looked fine as a teenager, but when she aged know how in old cartoons, when one cartoon character would choke another character, their eyes would bug out? Yeah. It looked like that.

Kristina: Rebellious, Perfectionist, Neat, Genius
After fixing a slight mouth deformity (again, thank you Beau), Kristina emerged as a lovely yet still uninteresting teenager. The one thing that confuses me is how in the world she rolled the "rebellious" trait. I thought rebels didn't care about trivial things such as vanity, and cleanliness...I mean, how many perfectionist genius rebels do you know? "Yeah, I'll go down to City Hall and fight against The Man, but let me clean the house and practice my protest speech first." 

Trudy...still sucks. It's been so long that I've honestly forgotten why I dislike her, but I do. Angie used to dislike her as well, but now it appears that they're forming an "alliance" of sorts. *glare*

 Sigh, oh well. If Trudy and Angie ruin my game somehow in revenge, at least I have Thame's utter epicness to lessen my pain.

Speaking of Angie and her Beau...

 Here they are, on the rooftop of their mansion, watching the stars together. In their underwear. At 6AM.


They're getting sunburns together. :')

And last but not least, Jacob, who is still amusingly creepy and apparently dislikes children. Did he have that trait before? I'll have to go check. Sad, I was hoping to see how horrifying adorable his kids with Trudy would be. Maybe I'll get her knocked up anyway, just to get on his nerves. Muahahahaha

 Oh well, at least he's finally making himself useful...

"...but at what cost? :("
Doesn't he look pitiful while doing it? Ahahaha, Jacob is a terrible vampire.

And on that note, I think I'll go to sleep. Of course, when Blogger publishes this it'll be morning, but...*continues to ramble*

Goodnight! :)

Random Generations Screenies!

School's almost out, Generations just arrived yesterday, and my involuntary leave of sim-absence is approaching its expiration date. You know what that means...

PIC SPAM!!! *contains spoilers...?*

Traits: Neat, shy, family-oriented, nurturing, eco-friendly
 This is Carol Camden. She's a shy, nurturing gal from Twinbrook who would like nothing more than to settle down with her hubby and raise five a few kids in Sunset Valley. Well, that and a clean house.

Traits: Athletic, loner, computer whiz, frugal, loves the outdoors
Moses Camden, another Twinbrook transplant, enjoys jogging to work in the mornings and clipping coupons. He's currently trying to learn how to overclock his PC so his wife can play her computer games. Hey, even games within games can be graphic-intensive!

He wants to be a firefighter superhero, to ensure that people don't lose their lives to the orange flames of death.

Link to the gorgeousness here
And this, is their SUPER FREAKING AWESOME SPECTACULAR apartment, courtesy of nengi. Some of the furnishings are courtesy of moi, because the apartment was too expensive to buy furnished. Hint: I just plunked down the TV, chair, barstools, desk area, and bed.

Woohoo in the shower = an abundance of pixels
Woohoo in the shower - censors = really weird animations, according to Twallan.

That's really gonna suck for the storytellers that were planning a sexytime shower scene for their stories.

The obligatory pillow-fight-after-woohoo ceremony. Too adorable. Oh, I neglected to mention that Carol's hair and shirt came with Generations, as well as everything on Moses (excluding the shoes, I think).

I made Carol get a job as an amateur babysitter, which is a part of the Daycare profession. Not job, but profession (I had to make that distinction because I thought it was a job). Also, the profession takes place at your sims' home, which means it could be a pretty good job for your Susie/Johnny homemakers. The sims drop off their toddlers and kids to put them in your care, usually between 8AM to 9PM.

After this, she promptly went back to playing video games. ;)

Oof, first day on the job and he's already smacked himself in the face with a door! I should have made him clumsy...

Carol, reading at the Old Pier Beach (again, courtesy of nengi). She's pregnant here, but it was early in the pregnancy so you can't really tell.

This is the new baby Alex, taking a stroll with his mommy. Time flies, doesn't it? And ooh, look!! The baby has expressions while in the stroller! And it moves around! Here, Alex is happy and adorable...

And here, he's angry and a hellspawn! Isn't this fun?

I should be back with more picspam tomorrow, but right now I need to focus on if that'll happen. ;) As always, happy simming!

Small update and extras:
Generations is definitely my favorite EP, closely followed by Late Night. Generations runs pretty well on my system even with most of Twallan's updated mods installed, although it does have its frequent slow moments. My favorite features so far are the interactions (shower woohoo, give flowers, give gifts, etc.), the strollers, and the customizable age spans. Least favorite? Memories. I swear, if EA went any further overboard than they already have, sims would get a memory when they take a $#!+ for the first time. Oh well, at least I get free stuff whenever I upload memories!! :D

Our favorite vampire family is now in a refurbished Sunset Valley! They aren't in the Camden's save file, but I plan on using their offspring as minor characters in an upcoming series. Sigh, now I just jinxed myself. I bet as soon as I start "filming" for the story, my game will cry blood and tears.

Anyway, Angellique Dillard (remember her? Yeah, neither do I) is now a gorgeous toddler, Jacob and Trudy got married (t'was not my doing, trust me) and Angie got promoted to Supporting Actress!
