The Twins are ADORABLE!

Howl really does look like Erick! :popeye: Just with Pink hair! lol

Not sure if you picked up on this or not, but when children max out their child skills, you can keep working on that skill and it'll go to the adult version. So since Sophie maxed out her social skill, if you keep at it, she can start building her charisma skill before she's a teen.

Also, there's a wall light and a wall decal that you can buy to help with the nightmares and monsters under the bed. And if you get a wall speaker and put on a lullaby on the lowest volume, that helps too

I knew about the wall light but did not know about the wall decal or the wall speaker and lullaby... so many great tips!


Where do y'all find the CC - I don't even know where to start looking?

The only cc I have are toddler hairs lol. But HERE is a good place to start. It's just a collective list of all CC available and you can filter to what you are looking for.

also, A must for me is MCCC. I couldn't play the game without it! lol

I have MCCC, love it. Still playing with the default settings. Starting to toy with the idea of CC hair, especially for toddlers.

Thank you both so much!

Spoiler:
Yes! I would eventually get the wall light, but I also didn't know about the decals or lullabies... but that makes sense. I always wondered why there was lullabies on the radio - lol!
I also did learn that kids could go beyond their kid skills, but unfortunately I couldn't seem to get Sophie to learn the "Comedy" skill, as that's what I figured would be more important to her in her future career.


I have MCCC (now, but I didn't start with it on this legacy file - it took me a while to configure the settings to allow for story progression to boom, so the Twins end up being the only children for a while in a neighborhood BOOMING with toddlers trying to catch up, lol), but a lot of my CC is stuff my friend gave to me, and then I expanded from there. The only CC I use (minus a stray shirt/dress here and there) is hair currently.

I have some Kijiko hairs but don't use them often (obviously) because they're not really in the "style" of TS4, and I kind of want to keep the aesthetic similar. I only have those because they're my FAVORITE TS3 hairs, so I got them out of sentimentality (and for recreating my Sims 3 sims should I want to do that).

The biggest name I have in my folder is: Kiara Zurk (which I'm NOT kidding when I say I have over 200 files with her name on it - she's got great stuff that don't look out of place in the game), so if you were looking for game-fitting hairs, I'd look there. The site is a bit of a pain, but it does say something to me when I look into my downloads and find pretty much ONLY her hairs. XD Unfortunately hair and MCCC are the only ones I dug into. It's hard enough keeping track of all these hairs and recolors, I didn't want to add clothes into the mix just yet.

Thanks for the links. I will be looking when I get home. My weakness is hair, especially for the little ones. They seem to have so few choices.

My friend (Blamsart) was the one who navigated Kiara's site, so as I was going through it today I found it to be quite tricky to navigate (I hate when people overdo advertising on their site... Ugh). She does "packs" but you have to donate for those, however, all the stuff IN the packs can be downloaded free separately.

Spoiler:
On the other hand, Blams and I have been collaborating mods for a while, and she recently booted up her Sims 4 game so I uploaded my mods folder as it is right now (minus a week or two), so if anyone wants to download it and have easier access to the hair [link removed for safety, PM if you want it]. I'll leave this up for a few days and probably take down the link, but I always keep a backup of my mods on drive so someone can message me if they want it in the future. I also have all of the original Kiara folders, so they still (most of them) have pictures inside of the hair in question. That should make it easy for those who download to pick and choose what they want without having to guess blindly.

I literally just zipped up my entire mods folder, so all of it is in there. You can delete whatever you don't want and take whatever you do!

Haha great! I'll go ahead and take the link down for now.

Meantime I've got another chapter! 1.09 - Why? I have one more before I'm caught up to my backlog!

I have never made it to Why. I am going to have to make an effort with Xia's kids.

It was SURPRISINGLY difficult to make it to "Why" for my kiddos too. Thinking is just not an easy skill to learn!

Snuck in one more and I'm officially caught up to my gameplay! :bounce:

1.10 - The End of the Reign of Monsters

...and I am officially caught up on the reading!

I know who my early favorite for heir is, but we will see who is chosen... :)

Spoiler:
I had one child make friends with the monster in my Montrose legacy and then all they ever did was talk to it - disturbed their sleep as much as being scared. They spent all night sitting up talking to them. Irritated me so much that I never did it again.

All caught up!

Sophie is gorgeous! I think Lettie is my favorite though. I like that she has both pink hair and eyes :hearts: Are you doing and heir poll if you can't decide?

@Teresa, that's what I heard too about the monsters... Seems so useless! :roll: I think I'm pretty set in who will end up carrying the torch, but at the end of the day it should be fun regardless, all the kids are great!

@Mojo I possibly will, it really depends on the day though. Sometimes I go in and feel CERTAIN with my decision... sometimes I falter. I honestly don't think I'll end up being too mad regardless of the results at this point, so it's definitely not out of the question.

I snagged a night to play and got two chapters out of it with frustratingly no UI, so... that was fun figuring out what went where. :lol:

1.11 - The UI Failure
1.12 - Howl's Overdue Makeover

Yay for getting the UI back! I've started getting into the habbit that if I take a pic where I know I want the UI on, I double check right after I take it so that I got it. That way if it was off for some reason I can retake it lol

Since I play on my desktop again I have two monitors so I have the screenshot folder open while I play and I watch the pictures pop up and make sure I like them before I unpause. I am also writing as I go so there is that too.

I wish I had space for a second monitor! That would be so convenient!

You know I think the stupidest part of not having the UI on was that I HAD checked my pictures once before and somehow went "uh huh, yup that's good!" :duh: I play in windowed-fullscreen mode so alt-tabbing happens very frequently. Either way I'm going to be paranoid from here on out!
I'd still love a second monitor... but my husband's computer and mine share a desk, so while we have two monitors there, they're for separate computers. :yes:
