Notes From Project Dawn, Chapter Twelve- Starring Cody as Himself

So I’m back! And I also have a copy of the Sims 4. I’ll be blunt, I don’t like it. Bland and no customisation, all my Sims look the same. Might be good for the apocalypse challenge, though…

A perfect day for a pool party, huh?

Ramona: ‘Are you kidding me? I’ve just managed to wear this for the first time in years!’

Screenshot-3

The problem with this massive gap in between chapters is that I really have no idea who these men are.

Screenshot-4

Ramona: ‘Can you believe this is the first time in years I haven’t walked into a house and heard screaming children? It’s a weird feeling.’

Screenshot-5

But here we go again. Number 14!

Screenshot-6

I think he does this just to irritate me. He knows full well where his bed is. It’s like how my dog tries to convince me that no, the sofa really is where she sleeps.

Screenshot-7

Gail got invited over to some house, but no one was in, apart from the TV and the dog.

Gail: ‘Well, this is nice, sort of. At least the furniture matches. I’d like to have that someday.’

Dog: ‘You have no ambition, do you?’

Screenshot-8

As punishment, I shipped Cody and Harper off to the art museum. It isn’t that bad.

Cody: ‘But it’s so bright and colourful, how do they stand it?!’

Screenshot-9

Harper: ‘Huh. Well that’s…interesting, I guess.’

No, I don’t get it either. Maybe it’s Willow’s old guitar.

Screenshot-10

Florence: ‘Oh thank God, I can finally get out of here.’

Screenshot-11

Screenshot-12

That is one amazing outfit, if I do say so myself. Her final trait is Hopeless Romantic, which is weirdly fitting.

Screenshot-13

And now for Cody. I’ll miss his babysitting.

Screenshot-14

Gnome #1: ‘Wow, this is thrilling.

Gnome #2: ‘I know. 20 simoleans on Cody picking a stupid outfit.’

Don’t encourage him.

Screenshot-16

I finally got to use the Katy Perry clothes for something- if you colour the cookie hait right, you can pretend it’s a beanie. It’s great.

Screenshot-17

Darron got made over too, he looks pretty nice.

Screenshot-19

Florence: ‘I agree, so while I’m at it…’

Screenshot-20

Florence: ‘Marry me?’

Screenshot-21

Screenshot-22

Fairly sure that’s a yes.

Screenshot-24

Cody, well…

Screenshot-25

Screenshot-26

Screenshot-27

He tried.

Screenshot-28

Cody: ‘Now don’t get me wrong, I only turned you down because wanted to propose.’

Screenshot-29

Caryn: ‘Ha! For making me sit through this twice? Not a chance!’

I just left them to it, but I think SP told me they got married a few days later, so it’s all fine.

Screenshot-30

Florence: ‘You’d better not have that baby during my wedding, or else.’

Ramona: ‘I do have to admit, I seem to be the queen of inappropriate timing…’

Screenshot-31

At least we can all be thankful Ramona isn’t thinking about using Darron as her next subject.

Screenshot-32

But let’s leave that for now- on with the wedding!

Screenshot-33

Harper: ‘It’s so romantic!’

Screenshot-34

Ramona: ‘Oh, my sweet little girl, all grown up!’

Screenshot-35

Cody: ‘Oh good for you. At least someone’s proposal gets accepted around here.’

That’s mostly your own fault.

Screenshot-36

And she didn’t go into labour during the ceremony and upstage her daughter! Success!

Screenshot-37

And behold the portraits with Cody in his formal wear because he’s a moron.

Screenshot-38

In the meantime, I’m gluing Ramona to the TV in the hope for triplets.

Screenshot-39

Ramona: ‘I think you’re about to find out.’

Screenshot-40

So she sets off at a walk. In heels.

Screenshot-41

Also, I never noticed how unintentionally close the house is to the hospital, haha.

Screenshot-42

So there’s one…

Screenshot-43

Two…

Screenshot-44

And three! Just kidding, it’s some abandoned toddler. I have half a mind to take it home with us.

Screenshot-45

Twins again. I’m sure the game is glitched. Is anyone else having this issue? In the meantime, I think the rules say you can give the fertility treatment after the halfway mark, so I’ll have to see.

Screenshot-46

This is December, who clearly got Jack’s colouring. His traits are Brave and Loves the Heat, with favourites of indie music, hot dogs and violet.

Screenshot-47

His twin, Kay, looks nothing at all like him, haha. Her traits are Insane and Evil (hooray) and likes rap music, falafel and hot pink.

Screenshot-48

Pro: He has pretty eyes.

Con: He’s stealing our stuff.

Screenshot-49

I now present to you another episode of Gardening TV. The garden is dying. It has been neglected for centuries. The gnomes are taking bets on which poor soul falls next. The tomato plant is long gone.

Screenshot-50

But who’s this?

Cecil Winchester: ‘I don’t like her.’

Screenshot-51

Ramona: ‘We’ll just see about that.’

Screenshot-52

How many university gift baskets does one lot need?!

Screenshot-53

So while Ramona’s off ensnaring another victim, here’s some more birthdays- first, January haha

Screenshot-54

In the meantime, before poor Cecil could even get in the front door, the girls were interrogating him.

Gail: ‘I don’t know- are you smart enough to be part of this legacy? You don’t really look it.’

Cecil: ‘But she’s my soulmate!’

Changed your tune a bit, haven’t you?

Screenshot-55

Ramona: ‘All thanks to my charisma skills.’

Then can you persuade him to change his ugly outfit?

Screenshot-56

On with the birthdays!

Screenshot-57

Screenshot-59

Harper turned out really interesting looking, actually. Her new trait is Frugal.

Screenshot-60

Ilse, on the other hand, got Supernatural Sceptic. How this is possibly growing up in Midnight Hollow. I have no idea.

Screenshot-61

Speaking of birthdays, I’m trying to save all the Mallon kids so I can upload them to the Bin, only I can’t for the life of me find April, Beatrice, and Angel, so I’m respawning them in another save. Ramona is delighted.

Screenshot-62

Oh, and here’s January. She got Dog Person. uuggggh I hate that trait so much

Screenshot-63

Off to the park for skilling! Mostly because they all need fresh air and a change of scenery.

Screenshot-64

And of course, Mikey gets a seat.

Screenshot-65

All praise the lighting mod.

Screenshot-66

Training dogs to hunt worked quite well for the Laflammes, so I figured these guys could give it a go, since they’re infinitesimally poorer.

Screenshot-67

Anyone remember the “Sim Women Laughing With Salad,” meme? We should start a new one. Sim Woman Scowling Angrily at Workbench.

Screenshot-68

This guy was walking into the lake on the edge of the lot. Trying to save himself from being sucked into the pink monstrosity of a house, I presume.

Screenshot-69

Wow. She truly is Willow 2.0. I’ll have to get her a guitar.
