G1 – #Not So Berry – Updates

This episode was supposed to bring some Winterfest celebrations. Managed to capture a few pictures/screenshots before the Snowy Escape update.

Since I was desperately wanting to experience the base game update with Sentiments, I had loaded my save so that the continuation of the story had more depth. This was before all the issues were announced.

Like most Simmers, my game broke during these updates corrupting this save file. Any further copies / backups had the same issue.

While EA was gathering details to complete a further update that will later fix these issues, I took a break from this Let’s Play. Unfortunately my save file was never going to recover, so I took the plunge to advance into Generation Two (Rose) creating a new save with Rosendo as a Teen. Of course Mint came along too, planning on continuing as much as possible with the challenge from Generation One but our main focus will now be with Rosendo.

Hope my viewers understand my decision to adapt this challenge, as it would not have happened if system problems had not been present.

G1 – Mint (Prt 10) #Not So Berry

Everyone was in great spirts after their recent vacation, despite the little tiny hick-up. Rosendo had a great report from school, Everett called wanting to head out & Jules got promoted. He celebrated by having a night of passion with Mint while the kids took care of themselves in the morning that followed.

So it was time to spend a day with the kids, before they get neglected. Mint arranged to take them to the park as it was a nice day. She had a bite to eat with Rosendo and his newly enquired BFF, while Roselyn went to play in the ball pit. Roselyn started wandering off to investigate while watching another kid play the adventure frame, so Mint had to follow to make sure she was alright. Mint then showed her the cool feature pretending to be in space, after-all she had seen some stuff herself during her alien visit’s. Roselyn was delighted and had great fun.

Roselyn birthday was starting to become upon us, Mint was glad she had spent this day in the park with the kids. It was also during the time when the base game got updated with sentiments before the release of Snowy Escape. Roselyn blew out her candles aging to a kid & Rosendo very quickly gained a sentiment with Jules ‘adoring’. Not really sure what to make of the relationship.

Mint decided for Roselyn birthday, that they should head out to dinner. During the evening, one of the waiter’s decided to met the grim reaper. This changed the whole atmosphere of original celebration but Mint was glad she still took the family out.

G1 – Mint (Prt 09) #Not So Berry

Time for a little vacation since everyone was becoming exhausted from work, each requiring some down time. Mint tells the family she has booked a little holiday home in Selvadorada. Rosendo suddenly became unhappy about this, but as soon as they arrived, he had a great time meeting some new friends.

Just so everyone can see the featured image. Planning on using a different style for future updates.

Jess attempted to contact Jules during this vacation break, so he hid quietly in a corner to reply. Jules advised Jess to stay away & to stop texting, as he had found out about Mint plans with the doll. Jess took his advice and cooled off the relationship for several weeks.

Rosendo invited one of his new holiday friends round to watch a movie and hang out. He was beginning to really enjoy every minute with his new found friends. He also spent time at park with Juan Alexander becoming BFF’s later on.

Just before it was time to head back home, Jules set the kitchen stove on fire. Emergency services were called, as not our home, Mint not wanting to be charged extra. Shortly afterwards the family quickly departed heading home, hoping they would never be found out for destroying the holiday villa.

G1 – Mint (Prt 08) #Not So Berry

Mint was woken up by another visit from the aliens, seems they really like her & vice versa. Never played with aliens so this is most abductions any of my sims have ever had.

Since it was the weekend the garden gnomes club gathered in the park. Mint now had the chance to introduce herself properly to the members of the club. So she gathered and had a few discussions with each member. The voting had also opened for the next Neighbourhood Action Plan (NAP) so Mint uses all her points voting for creative arts to help with Jules career as freelance stylist.

Played a few more days with nothing much happening, until it was Rosendo’s birthday. Mint baked a chocolate cake for him to blow out his candles, then a handsome child appeared. Mint then had to go to the local store to search for a bed as now outgrown toddler bed. The following morning she had time to spare getting kids breakfast and enjoying chats around the table. Not sure where Jules ended up at this point.

By the end of the week Mint had earned yet another raise, promoting herself to Ufologist. Breakthroughs have been happening without any interactions from myself, so concentrating on the tasks during working hours allows Mint to succeed very quickly. (never realized before how the scientist career can be doddle to play). With her bonus, mint bought a Voodoo doll and immediately knew who she was going to prank. Next time Jules had his another lover round, the doll was bounded. Mint was now in total control, ensuring her man would not stray away from her.

G1 – Mint (Prt 07) #Not So Berry

Jules was delighted about the arrival of Baby Roselyn, despite the night before. Rosendo, on the other hand, got very angry. He was more than happy, having his room all to himself. Mint headed to work in good spirits, completing all tasks early. This gave her some time to catch up with colleagues and managing to continue reading her book.

Mint did such a good job, that she ended up getting a promotion (Technological Innovator). She chilled at home that night, before heading to bed. The thunderstorms outside were scaring Rosendo again, but he continued to watch videos on his tablet to forget about them so Mint to could have a chilled night. After-all she had just had another baby & working extremely hard at the lab.

The following day Jules headed out to make some Eco Friendly parts to upgrade the appliances in the kitchen, looking to reduce household bills. The inspector will be due to visit again, he thought. Mint started feeling insecure yet again, as he was taking longer then she expected. I mean ‘How long does it take to make three parts?’ Jules returned home, listening to Mint’s ranting ‘n’ raving, waiting to speak. Jules then got chance to explain. “There was only one Fabricator on site, with everyone wanting to use it at the same time”.

Next few days played out as normal, until Everett invited Mint out to a party. She hadn’t been out in such a long time, so she accepted his invitation buying drinks for the group.

The following day it was Roselyn birthday. When she woke up from the party last night, Roselyn was in the process of aging by herself. There were now two toddlers in the house.

G1 – Mint (Prt 06) #Not So Berry

Voting opened over weekend for the next Neighbourhood Action Plan (NAP). Fun Loving Community was in the lead, so both Jules & Mint contributed to the votes ensuring this outcome for Mint’s mischievous streak. They also bought a television for the bedroom during that weekend with Jules’ bonus from his recent promotion. It just so happened that it was also rebate day, so a very little extra payment came rolling in.

Mint had taken her family leave this time, as the next few days at work were starting to be little tiring since the pregnancy was nearing due date. While Jules went to work, Mint had a little afternoon nap. Rosendo was happily playing so all was fine, until the NAP inspector appeared. Rosendo went to greet him at the door, while continuing watch his videos.

Bess called Jules later that day asking to come and visit. Jules agreed letting her in the house. Mint woke up after her long afternoon nap, catching the two of them watching a movie together. Was she right ? Does Jules still have feelings for Jess ? Had this old relationship ended or was she still in denial ? Mint was starting to feel very insecure.

Heading back to bed, Rosendo woke up having a nightmare. Mint knew Jules was otherwise pre-occupied, so she attempted to settle Rosendo back to sleep. The stresses of seeing Jules & Bess together, along with parenting their child, had sent Mint into early Labor.

Once again she was heading to the hospital alone. No alien baby, guess she was already pregnant before abduction, ‘n’ its a girl!. Little Roselyn was born.

G1 – Mint (Prt 05) #Not So Berry

Both Jules & Mint went to work each day, taking turns watching Rosendo, becoming the perfect little family. One day, in particular, Jules was in a flirtatious mood and yes it lead to another night of passion, just as Rosendo was due to age to a toddler.

Using the in game randomizer to select traits for toddlers, Rosendo aged up.

Mint then had an opportunity to send a chain letter. Being the mischievous person she is, this opportunity could not be overlooked. Mint send it to several people including Bella Goth. Needless to say, Bella didn’t take it very well and responded to Mint. Immediately after receiving this message, Mint was abducted.

On arrival home, Mint became a little nauseous. What could have happened? Mint went to bed, feeling much the same the following morning. Not long afterwards, it was confirmed. Mint was pregnant once again.

Could this be an alien baby, I wonder?

G1 – Mint (Prt 04) #Not So Berry

Everett visited the following day after work, becoming a great friend. Mint invited him in, eventually deciding to give him a residence key to let himself into the house whenever he wanted. Everett decided to hang around for a while giving Mint a cupcake.

After a few more days working Mint finally went into Labor, phoning Jules on the way to the hospital. When she arrived at the hospital, Jules helped her out the taxi. He hadn’t seen Mint for a while, so he freaked out over how big she looked. Once she was checked in at the desk, he bailed. Mint was taken into surgery, where a doctor I knew turned up. (remember my 7D Legacy-this doctor maybe familiar)

It’s a boy, naming him Rosendo Berry. Mint phoned Jules to let him know the good news and to make sure everything was ok. Arriving home with Rosendo, Jules came over. Mint asked if he would move in to help raise Rosendo together. What she didn’t know was that he had another love interest at home, Bella. She wasn’t sure what he would do. Jules knew he had more of a connection with Mint so said yes bringing his Savings $5,000 with him. Would he forget about Bella? Only time will tell.

Mint concentrated more on her career trying to get her promotion while she thought about it. It paid off, know she is a Serum Sequencer.

G1 – Mint (Prt 03) #Not So Berry

So, hopefully the conclusion of last part resulted in the same decision I had already made within gameplay, that the celebrations of News Years won heads down over festival.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

As you may have guessed, Mint travelled to the bar, phoning Everitt on the way. He was delighted for the invite & would see her soon. Mint headed for the ladies to freshen up waiting for the countdown. It just so happened to be singles night at the bar, so the place was very popular that night.

Everett showed up, so Mint decided to go and greet him. It was impossible to find a quite spot together with bystanders joining into each conversation. When they finally got a moment together, Mint decided to make her move increasing their romance bar a little. Everitt was having none of it that night, so plans were not going at all perfect. Guess Everett had decided that we’ll just be friends & nothing more.

Mint gathered at the TV anyway for the countdown. Winterfest was already spoiled, so she was not going to let ‘New Year’ be the same. Jules was across the room spotting how lonely she was, so decided to come & cheer her up. Mint & Jules had a great conversion together which quickly escalated. Could she find love after all, to start the New Year with?

It maybe too much of a presumption at this stage, but Mint decided to invite Jules to stay the night. He very quickly said yes, so the two of them headed back to Mint’s residence having some more drinks together. We all know where a spur of the moment night, can lead.

Yes, your correct. There was a lot of passion that night. Mint & Jules have now become boyfriend & girlfriend.

G1 – Mint (Prt 02) #Not So Berry

Mint was invited to celebrate her upcoming promotion at the night club, where she met Father Winter. The discussions with Father Winter quickly escalated into a fight, from not having a great Winterfest. There is no love lost between these too.

Mint concentrated on her next few days at work, building more of a romantic relationship with Everett giving him a residence key to her small home. Everett invited Mint to the park one night after work, where they talked & built a Snow-pal together (how cute).

Mint earned another promotion to Junior Tinkerer with a couple of days rest bite, as it was now the weekend. Saturday morning Mint decided to visit the local library, using the computers to find out some more information on the web. Further breakthroughs were encountered so she jotted them down for later.

While working away at the library, Mint’s phone started to ring. She quickly popped outside to answer. It was Everitt asking if she would like to go on a date. Mint accepted buying him a couple of drinks. It was a very pleasant date on both sides, Everitt found Mint very easy to talk to.

It was also New Years Eve that weekend, so Mint went home for a little nap hoping she would meet Everett later for the celebrations. Just as it was nearly time to travel to the bar, the romance festival came to town.

Should she meet Everett at the bar for New Years or head to the festival ?
