Take Me to the Moon 3.1: A New Era of Green
Cacey was in the last few days of her childhood and enjoying it thoroughly.
Brad was a bit wistful to see his little girl grow up.
She took a deep breath, then blew out her candles.
There was no way around it. It was just a hard adjustment for her dad. And if he knew how being a social butterfly was going to morph into being a serial romantic, he would have been having a nervous breakdown.
Cassandra’s friend, Cedric (in the green shirt) was there at the party.
And enjoyed the rest of her party, flirting with a guy she had invited.
Meanwhile, third generation heir Cassandra was also thinking about what she wanted, as she became a young adult.
A few days later… if her wishes were romantic, they seemed to be coming true.
She proposed and Cedric accepted.
Cedric would like to be fabulously wealthy, and has the traits Romantic, Loves Outdoors, and Family Oriented. He helps the family out with his digging and fishing in his free time.
He quickly got a job in the tech guru career, following in the footsteps of his future father-in-law.
To the color of the library
to the decorations and colors in the living and dining area.
Although Beatrice still had her favorite Pollack-like painting in the dining room. Which also contained Beatrice’s bar and was a dream for throwing parties.
Cassandra loved the view into the back garden.
There were lots of flowers around the kitchen porch and garden gate.
But the best thing about the new house, as far as Cassandra was concerned, was her kitchen garden. Her life work and all her hopes were tied up in her botanist hobby, from shaping bonsai to planting, fertilizing, splicing, and grafting herbs, vegetables, fruits and flowers.
Since she had a reward trait that allowed her to never sleep, she spent the dark hours coming up with all kinds of concoctions. With asparagus.
Maybe all the late nights out helped Cacey forget about the stress of living with an evil mom.
I finally realized why my sims weren’t getting promoted quickly. They were not doing their “daily task,” and weren’t necessarily going to work in the right mood. Thanks to Carls Sims 4 they are now doing much better in their careers; Cedric is already an Engineer after only a week in the Tech Guru career.
Another adjustment I made that has helped my sims be a lot more successful is spending more time fulfilling whims, so they can get more reward traits with the points earned. Brad has entrepreneurial, which helps him get promoted, and frugal trait, which lowers bills, Beatrice has never weary and shameless (which helps her not get distracted by bad moods when she does inappropriate things.
The fossils allow sims to get into a focused mood that stays when they leave the house, ideal for school and for the Tech Guru career. Beatrice has to go to work inspired, because she is in Culinary.
Cacey has the Beguiling reward trait; she can put anyone in a flirty mood with one look.
The animation when you “Evolve” a plant to a higher quality is so pretty:
Ground Floor Plan; Heir Suite and Library to left of entryway; Dining and Living Area to the right. On the back hallway is the kitchen, and a nursery suite which opens onto the semi-circular porch.
Second Floor Plan: Left side is the spare suite; right side is the parents’ suite.
