Pleasantview Rnd 5 - Wilkie - (Oldie) Coral and Leo

All who live here:

Coral (Oldie) Wilkie - Family - LTW to raise 20 puppies or kittens.  Beginning wishes:  Play with, entertain, talk to somebody, woohoo in bed.  First wish fulfilled - Birdwatching. 

Plantsim Leo - Family -Marry Off Six Children.  Beginning wishes:  Get a kitten, get a puppy, get a kitten or puppy, make friends with Wanda Tinker.  First wish fulfilled - made friends with Wanda Tinker.

Plantbaby Rose - Cripes...didn't get her beginning wishes.  I think that is because I know she is gonna be moving off the lot shortly.

Various Kittens

Okay...I gotta say it right up front.  When I came onto the lot, Leo's LTW had changed from 'Marry Off Six Children' to 'Earn $100,000'  I have no idea where he picked that up, his sub aspiration is Romance...just another crazy thing this game is doing....messing with the money and now the LTWs.  I used Pescados debugger and switched it back to Marry Off Six being that I have been playing this lot to fulfill that neighborhood bloating wish.  heh  I wasn't gonna give up now.

At any rate, Leo gets on the horn to make friends with Wanda. As soon as friendship spun over...gosh darn it...then he wanted to flirt with her and play with her.  heh  Once Coral did her birdwatching, she threw up wishes to do things with cats she doesn't own any more.  Geesh!  Me thinks this is gonna be a rough round.

Leo invited Wanda over and managed to get through 4 more wishes without any romantic interactions.  They share a three bolt attraction.  When Wanda left, it was time for Leo's number 4 plant baby Rose to grow up.  A birthday cake was lit, and Rose grew up.  She is a Popularity Sim, with an LTW to become Captain Hero.  Gosh darn it, I didn't get her grow up wishes, but the one that was fulfilled as 'make a friend'  She only knew one other person other than Coral and Leo, and that was her plantsim brother Silver Maple.  She got on the phone and yak yak yak...made a friend.  By then it was after midnight, and she then wanted to 'play with Silver Maple'.  She invites him over...

And had no issue getting in five wishes.  After all it is her wedding day.  She will get a husband from the wishing well, and needed to be in platinum to do so.

A job in Law Enforcement came up on the computer, and she grabbed it!

Around 4:30 AM, Rose decides to make her wish in the wishing well for a mate.....well let's just say the well made an interesting choice for her.

Count Ted Mamuyac.  However, I guess the Count was concerned about the impending dawn...they had their 'I LOVE YOU' kiss, and he disappeared with great flair with an hour to go until daylight.  Rose did not get a chance to ask him to marry her.  So, she had to  wait until night fall to marry him.

Rose called off work on her first night as a security guard.  She wanted to make sure she could be at home to see Ted.  She asked him out on a date, and managed engagement.  Then she popped the big question...Will you move in with me, my mom and dad, and all our cats?

Of course this was a big windfall for the Wilkie household, being that the only income is derived from selling cats, and receiving a slight reverse dowry from the young men when Leo would marry off one of his plantsim daughters.  Ted is a Pleasure Sim with an LTW to become Mayor.   His wishes upon moving in:  Make a friend, meet someone new, get a job in gaming or entertainment. 

Ted and Rose were quickly married much to Leo's delight.  Ted landed a job in politics from the computer, $30,000 worth of merchandise was put in Ted's backpack, and the couple moved out.

With Rose's exit a slot was opened up for Leo to produce a new plantbaby.  Enters a new baby boy, Birch.

These first few days were filled with nature type wishes from both Coral and Leo, and friendship wishes for the 6 kittens in the house.

The same day that Birch was grown, the kittens in the house started growing up.   This is Jean.  She grew up and immediately left the kitty pen outside and claimed Coral and Leo's bed.  She is especially pretty...she came from the Caliente house.

This is Pedro (laying down) from the Lothario home, and Dorothy from the Goth mansion.  Coral called for animal control to come and get them, then called for three more kittens.

Next to grow up and leave was Doris Caliente, and Gary Lothario joined the household.

Doris Caliente

Gary Lothario
Next to move in was Indiana Goth.

Then Jones Goth.  heh

After Birch's birth, Leo spun up 'have 10 kids' and never lost it.  I don't think so.

On Thursday Walter Caliente went to the shelter,

Along with Ginger Caleinte...

And Lutie Caliente joined the family....

Along with Barbara Lothario.  At this point, if my count is correct, I think enough cats have been adopted to meet Coral's LTW.  We'll see.

Leo's first born Sunflower came walking by the trailer one night, along with her husband Mitch Wolosenko.  Leo was glad to see her.

She spent some time with Birch.  It was spring time now, and both Leo and Coral are throwing romantic type wishes, and each has taken a hit of elixir.

On Friday, little Birch grew up, and Sunflower was still there to help celebrate.

Birch rolled Fortune, with an LTW to become head of the SCIA.  Right over to the wishing well he went.

The game is liking NPCs right now.  The well brought Birch Chef Joy Olshfky, a two bolt match up.  Hey, I will take it.  Means no babies born!  heh

A hasty marriage was arranged under the arch, nuptials exchanged, and the bride drifts away like nothing happened.  She brought a whopping $1,000 to the house.  The happy couple immediately moved out.  Joy is a Fortune Sim with a wish to become a Criminal Mastermind.   Aint gonna happen.

The final plant baby is born, a boy named Grass.

WOOT!  On Sunday it happens.  :-)  This is the first time this LTW has been acheived in my game.  Now I know how to do it.  heh  Coral will now be allowed to pass to the great beyond, even though she turned platinum long ago with the lifetime meter.  Thanks, Coral!  Even though she develops a relationship with her cats, she doesn't cry and carry on when they go off the the humane officer. heh

At this point, Leo realizes he can turn back into his old self.

Hi Leo.  :)  Your life meter is really low, let's hope you have enough time to see Grass married off.  :)  However, I noticed at this point that Leo has also reached platinum without meeting his LTW due to the full lifetime aspiration meter.  hmmm...I am thinking I may change the way I am doing 5 Wishes.

I am playing this lot a little long.....because I want to wrap up these two Sims.

On Monday, Barbara Lothario is sent to the animal shelter, and Lutie Caliente is allowed to stay to carry on the next generation.

Grass grew up on Monday, a Popularity Sim.  LTW - to have 20 Simultaneous Best Friends.  Easy peasy!  Off to the wishing well to find his future wife...

Okaaaaay....this neighborhood just became very interesting.  heh  This is Contessa Kari Young.  She is a Pleasure Sim with an LTW to become a Professional Party Guest.  That is a good LTW for a Vampire.  Grass immediately gets the engagement over with, then the marriage took place under the arch....wanted to get all this done before dawn.

WOOT!  Matching wedding clothes!  This couple was meant to be.

Again, WOOT!  Leo can no go to the great beyond.  I was surprised he didn't go on this day.  He has just a sliver left, as does Coral.  Between Coral and Leo, two bottles of elixir was used.  Prosperity points!

I want to keep playing this lot, but now it is after midnight on Tuesday morning . Time to put it to bed.  It has been lots of fun playing the Oldie-Wilkies.  Grass and Kari will remain at the trailer and carry on.  Cat Gary Lothario was adopted back into the house to carry on the kitty production.  I imagine the next time I open this lot, Coral and Leo will have their Grim party.

I have taken a decision about the way wishes are fulfilled for Sims who have become platinum via the lifetime aspiration meter that came with Freetime.  It is redundant to keep filling wishes for a platinum Sim. These Sims are obviously happy Sims, and have had everything given to them that they could possibly desire.  I will no longer fulfill 5 wishes a day for Sims who:
  •  Become platinum before reaching their LTW
  •  Achieve their LTW.
Now then, the caveat with this...if I am not going to fulfill their wishes, I am not going to control them either, sort of like the ISBI Challenge  (I'M SUROUNDED BY IDIOTS).  heh.  I will not be able to click on their icon to see what is going on with them...they are essentially unplayable.  This means that even if they become platinum before their LTW, their LTW may or may not be achieved.  Depends alot on how the playable Sims are played..whether or not the 'idiots' meet their LTW.   IF they happen to meet their LTW, then I will look to see what the new one is, and make a decision whether or not I want to try for it.  This could have a big impact on the Prosperity points, but then this will keep it interesting.

I was so into what was happening with Grass growing up, then super suprised to see another vamp pop out of the wishing well, I didn't put his grow up wishes down.  But here are the wishes as of the closing of the lot:

Coral:  Unplayable

Leo:  Unplayable

Grass:  Meet someone new, be BFF with Kari and Coral, have 5 BF.

Kari:  Meet someone new, make a friend, get job in Entertainment or Gaming industry.

Keep on simmin'!



  1. ooooh what a fab round! Firstly yay for being back in Pleasantview! Double YAY for Coral getting the LTW, that was the way to do it! (Gonna steal that)> Lots of great variety from the wishing well too, loving it, me thinks you may have vamps galore soon. :D
    I really like the idea for the perma platinum too, yeah, ISBI style sounds good to me. I think I'll do the same when I've finished this round.

    1. I realized that I was wasting lots of time with fulfilling wishes for platinum Sims, that it was repetitive, and was making me lose interest in the 'hood. I found *myself wishing* that I didn't need to do anything for platinum sims. Made perfect sense to me.

      As far as the vamps go, I had seen the female vamp during Sim outings, but I had never seen the male one. I thought after my Sim persuaded the female vamp to bite Abhijeet a while back, that the vamps would become autonomously active, but they did not. I was surprised to see both the male and female vamp suddenly appear via wishing well. It will now be interesting to see the new vamps appear in the hood.

  2. That was a lot of fun to read! Congrats on achieving the 20-kittens-or-puppies-LTW!! I have not yet managed that in my game, but have several Sims trying hard.
    Good idea to treat the perma-plat Sims as unplayables. I sometimes do that, too.

  3. Cmbined ISBI, that will be great! And probably lead to interesting stories :)

  4. Oh interesting idea with the ISBI thing. That's a really good idea. I'm a LONG way off from anyone being platinum in Megalahood, bu I might have to take that on when I do get there. What a fun update, and great job with the LTWs.
