Socialite’s Disappearance Dredges Up Old Mystery
Take Me to the Moon 5.13
Bella Goth was officially declared a missing person as of Monday at 1:00 AM. Her son, Desmond Goth, reports that he has not seen her since leaving the house for the Tesla-Walker wedding last Saturday around 3:00 PM. Desmond Goth called the police a couple hours after returning from the wedding. The PPPD lead investigator is Adrianna Walker, with support from the security commission.
The socialite, Mrs. Goth, is famous, not only for having married into the founding family of Willow Creek, but also for funding the Earhart Mission of astronaut pioneer, Delaney Tesla, who later married her eldest son, Alexander. Alexander Goth declined to comment about his mother’s disappearance at this time.
Mrs. Goth’s disappearance is one of a half of a dozen similar cases in the Port Prominence area, including the disappearances several generations ago, of Micah Salazar and Barnaby Tesla, and, just yesterday, Bob and Eliza Pancakes of the Three Rivers area of Willow Creek Garden District.
“A search of all the hospitals in the area and national missing persons databases have not yielded any results,” Ms. Walker told reporters. “But if these three disappearances are connected with the disappearances of Salazar and Tesla decades ago, at least they provide us with fresh leads. With technology that did not exist during the time of the earlier disappearances, we have a better chance of solving this mystery.”
“We just want our parents to be safe and be found,” said Vicente Pancakes. “Both are elderly and have special health concerns, so we just hope they are found quickly.” The public is advised to please contact the Port Prominence Police Department with any leads.
From a story point of view, I felt I no longer could ignore these disappearances in my game. It appears that Bella and both the older Pancakes have been culled. After Bella didn’t attend the wedding, I checked on her, and she was gone from the lot and from all the family trees. While backing up families today, I found out that both Bob and Eliza are also gone without a trace. (With no evidence they existed in the genealogy). The risk of using custom content no longer outweighs the certainty that my sims will be culled, so I have installed Dark Gaia’s No More Culling mod, v.3. I also read in Dark Gaia’s notes, that he or she also uses Deaderpool’s MC Command Center Cleaner module, and thinks that further helps keep family ghosts from being culled, so I installed the MC Command Center with all its modules, as well. Deaderpool said that her mod is purposefully similar to Twallan’s Story Progression, and I decided at this point in the story it would be helpful to have some help from Story Progression with my unplayed sims such as Arianna, Rachel, the Pancakes, the Walkers, and the Goths. With the MC Command Center mod, sims I am not playing will marry, have children, have romances, and move into houses and careers. I’ve turned off automatic updates in Origin and will be backing up my Sims 4 file every other play session. Any other advice on maintaining mods and managing updates?
