G5 – Plum (Prt 1) #Not So Berry

Greetings, meet Plum as a teen.

I decided for a little added extra fun, our six skills for reaching ‘level 8’ are going to be completely random using the technique below. Plum will inherit the Piano & Skiing skills from her father which will be mastered throughout her journey.

Starting each of the skills, only need to grab the DJ Mixing once I figure out how as a teen.

During her adulthood, I would like to take her to university however this could be too ambitious so let’s see how things go first.

G4/5 – Grey/Plum #Not So Berry

So, you may have noticed by the title that Plum aged up when I returned to my game today after a little break away. I had forgotten that it was nearly her birthday during the last update when it was Winterfest & New Year’s.

Upon checking each situation, Ami & Julie still had resolutions to complete. Grey was promoted (I think). Well that’s what the game said. Then he eloped, marrying Ami (Wedding Stories Glitches) & Oliva became a child. I guess a lot has happened since Part 14. Not really sure why the progress in-between hadn’t saved correctly.

We’ll return with the Plum generation shortly, however Grey requires to still complete the Athlete Career (currently Lvl 9) & mastering parenting skill. You can view here for latest updates.

I’m sorry for the lack of content as we switch to Plum Gen, but hope to redeem myself with the following generations & keep you all interested.

G4 – Grey (Prt 14) #Not So Berry

It was Winterfest & also Olivia’s B’day. The family woke up grabbing popcorn for breakfast & Grey starting a little sing song. The forecast was snow, so not a lot of activities took place during the day. Family movie night was the plan as it was also Sunday.

What better time to age up Olivia & master the Singing the skill.

Opening the presents, everybody received a gift but Julie. Wonder what had she done to deserve nothing. I felt extremely sad at this point, maybe having the emotions for her.


Father Winter had decided there was no food & started cooking (never did find out what he made)


New Years was soon upon us, Julie makes a resolution to lose weight from eating popcorn as a kid (not going to lie: I was a little shocked when she aged up to teen).

Then suddenly out of the blue, Grey received a call. This was not the call he was expecting :- Yellow had just passed away. While Grey & Plum head to the house, Ami takes Olivia to the park hopefully to take her away from all the sadness.

Sure enough another pop-up notification appeared. Ami was expecting once again, just in time for Plum’s B’day. While Ami baked the cake, Grey bathed Plum ready for the big transformation into a child.

Renovations took place in both the kids room & appearance. Note: Remember on console so no mod’s available for hair colour etc.

Yellow wanted to spend time with Ami at the festival. Ami also brought her sisters along to tell them the good news about the pregnancy. Almost certain they didn’t enjoy the food, but talent around caught their eye.

Grey decided that a vacation to the slopes was needed, so he woke the kids up early giving them both his old Ski’s & Snowboard. Then he booked the family rental home that he went to, many times as a kid, bringing along Yellow & Ami’s sisters also.

Julie & Plum head to the slopes, while Ami cooks grub for her sisters. Grey spends time cheering up Yellow then plays a snowball fight with the kids totally missing the snow festival in the town.

G4 – Grey (Prt 11) #Not So Berry

It’s was family night, so Grey brought home some popcorn to watch a movie together. Only the kids ate the popcorn, Grey’s went in the bin & Ami decided to eat hers when kids went to bed.

Grey had a day off, while Julie was at school he started to get creative once again for Ami’s upcoming B’day.

Ami birthday was soon approaching along with Halloween, so she decided to have everyone round for a party. Ami & Julie dress a-like, Yellow appears as ‘Grim’ along with a colleague from work. Although the party was a success, it could have been a little more entertaining which is why the kids choose to watch tele instead.

The following day, Grey came home with yet another promotion from work & then became a little frisky waking up Ami in the process.

Yellow had asked him to visit, where they had a great chat catching up / eating the hamburger stored in the fridge.

Every generation I tend to forget about others, so I’m glad the game reminds us occasionally. Love this style of gameplay where the story tells for us.

During the night, Ami went into labour. They both head to the hospital, bringing home another girl.

The following morning Julie aged up, how did we forget it was her birthday. The drama & focus on Plum, left Julie defending for herself. Randomly picked trait, giving the scamp aspiration to go along with it. Hopefully the game will inspire Julie’s future, as not sure where this will lead ATM. However Grey is still good friends & will continue to love all his kids unconditionally.

Grey ended up using points to get a sleep replacement helping him through the working day. Barely getting any sleep with a new baby around. Ami spends most of time cleaning the house, going to work which leaves Grey babysitting. Would be helpful if she took some of the night shifts with Plum giving Grey a break, although don’t see this happening.

Finally it was Plum birthday.

To celebrate Grey took them all to the park having a little barbecue spending time with Yellow too. It’s been so long since the family was together that they all had a great day.

So, things got a little more heated with Ami. The following day, Grey invited her over to watch the premiere with her for his b’day. Conversations led them to the bedroom once again. Maybe it’s time to tell Yuka that he is back with Ami.

Before heading to work, he gathers the group together at the sports arena. Hopefully Yuka understands & that we could still be friends. Chatting together they realized their relationship status had dwindled to non existent which meant the action to break up was no longer an option but they both knew that it was over.


It’s was Grey’s b’day & all he could think about was spending time with Ami. She agreed to move in bring Julie along too.

Not long afterwards Grey gained another promotion while Ami was starting to think that she could she be pregnant. She had to take the test ……

Sure enough the results were as expected. Plum generation now in progress.

Since the family is starting to grow & the bodybuilder aspiration was completed ages ago, there is nothing stopping him from having the super parent aspiration next.

So Grey chose a new path in life to be the best parent he can, aging up in the process.

While advancing further in Career, Julie aged up with the biggest glitch I’ve had in a long while. Combated by editing appearance in CAS then reloading the lot.

Grey decided to stay a little longer tucking Julie into bed.

The following day a call came through saying that Precious was had passed. He spends his spare time in between shifts singing & playing basketball with his friends.

Don’t hear from Yuka in several days, then all of a sudden just as I’m about to go to work she asks for a date.

Grey was starting to lose interest with this relationship, since they both have different personalities and don’t always tend to agree. Should this be a sign to end things ? Do I still have deep feelings for Ami ?

G4 – Grey (Prt 7) #Not So Berry

Baby Julie was his after-all. Realizing he wasn’t due into work till tomorrow, I suppose I should pop over and say hello.

Grey met both her sisters, while Ami was napping on the couch. They had not long lost a family member so tensions & sadness surrounded the atmosphere. Ami’s sisters introduced Julie to Grey, who was feeling a little apprehensive about the situation. They did bond which made Grey accept he was a parent now.

Talking to Ami, in her ‘converted garage’ bedroom, Grey asked if they could just be friends as this is moving to fast, “I’m not sure I like it but I promise to be there for both you &Julie. I won’t run away from my responsibilities. What you think?” Ami agreed, although she immediately become flirty again. Grey needs to think things over before committing himself again. They agree to be BFF’s.

It was now not long before ‘New Years’, so after work he headed out finding himself at the Stargazer Lounge. He decided to invite his friends along, sharing the party spirit. While attempting to get to know Yuka, Ami joined the conversation. How awkward. Trying to keep things casual Grey turns on the karaoke, while Ami continues to stick around watching both Yuka & Grey singing their heart out. Will she ever leave me alone?
