Pleasantview Rnd 6 - Caliente

All who live here:

Dina Caliente:  Fortune - LTW have 6 pets reach TOC.  Dina is already perm plat.  She is working toward having 6 pets reach TOC though because I have never fulfilled that LTW.

First wishes:  Get nature hobby plaque, have a party, hustle pool, and play with Darren Dreamer.

Nina (Caliente) Landchild:  Romance - LTW become Game Designer.  Ain't happening.  She is also perm plat.

First wishes: Tell inside joke to daughter Margaret, ask Sim on a date, become a witch, (where did she get that from?  hahaa) and tell Margaret a joke.

George Caliente:  Fortune - LTW to become a Business Tycoon, recent Uni grad.  He is son of Nina and Daniel Pleasant.

First wishes:  Reach cleaning 8, play computer game, have good reputation, be BF with Uni student Ichelle Vu, play chess, and talk to relative.  His wishes spun again as soon as I took the game off pause.  First wish fulfilled - invite someone over.

Margaret Caliente:  Child

Margaret's first wishes:  Talk to Lilith Pleasant, gain a skill point, play, and get creativity 1.  Margaret's dad is deceased Mark Landchild. First wish fulfilled:  Called Lilith Pleasant to talk before heading off to school.

The Caliente Home:

I am struggling with whether or not I want to put a basement here. Here we go with pics:

Still in the original Caliente house.  As you can see here, there is an added driveway.

Back yard.  Good shot of Dina's attached greenhouse.  She is currently working on the Nature hobby plaque.  You can also see here where the Calientes have raised all those cats.  Peeking out from the other end of the greenhouse is the wishing well Nina used to get 20 loves last round.  Also here, you can see a little room jutting out from the side of the house.  That is an added on bathroom.

Roof, where the infamous hot tub, bar and stereo is.

Second story, the bedroom story.  As you can see, there is only one double bed, and two singles.  Dina and Nina rotate sleeping since they are perm plat, easy to keep them awake.  Now that the heir George is home, I will have to rethink this strategy.  He will need to marry and carry on the Caliente name in the homestead.  (thus the need for the basement to put another bedroom, or build it out up above, but I like having the roof top party area).

First story.  The kitchen was remodeled after a near fatal fire last round.  All grave urns are being kept on a shelf in the living room, right by the exit to the greenhouse.  I might put them out there, I don't know yet.  Depends on how much of a nuisance they are.  When it was just Michael Bachelor it wasn't bad, but now there is also Mark Landchild.  There is a career reward in the living room, don't like the way that looks either, thus thinking strongly about the basement.  You might see a house layout update before I am done with this round.  heh

Minnie the cat gets TOC in Showbiz.  This makes a total of three down for Dina's LTW.  At this point Minnie was allowed to retire.  She is an elder now, and cant get any more TOCs.

George invited over Mallory Bruenig from Uni.  Hm, I guess he liked her more than ASimWen thought.  They are a one bolt relationship.  While I don't insist that all my Sims have a three bolt attraction, I at least like two.  George may be hitting the wishing well to find a lady to help carry on the Caliente name.

Tuesday morning the wishing well is moved to the front yard to make room for orchard trees in the back yard.  George wishes for love.  He gets Regina Ryan. Um, no.  It is a three bolt relationship, but Regina doesn't have the equipment to provide an heir to the Caliente fortune.  (which is over half a mill.)

George paid 5 Gs to the matchmaker.  She appeared to be working hard to earn that money....

Debbie Johnston.

Three bolts.  This will...errrr...make for some interesting genetics in the Caliente house.  Genetics in TS2 is one of my very favorite things about the game.

While George was looking for love, the other members of the household were working on Dina gets her hobby plaque in nature.

Margaret was throwing lots of wishes to command Minnie the cat around (who really was always around since she is now officially in feline retirement).  And Nina was being Nina chatting up anyone who came within arm's reach of her.

On Wednesday after fulfilling two wishes to gain cleaning points, George happens to think to check the computer for a job in business.

And there it was!  He naturally took it.

Andy reaches TOC in Service.  So, this is four for Dina's LTW.  Andy will be allowed to retire since he is an elder cat.

Wednesday was also Margaret's birthday.

Happy Girl!!!!!

She took after her mother.  She is a Romance Sim.  LTW - Woohoo With 20 Sims.  Shouldn't be hard with a wishing well on the lot.  :)

On Thursday, Margaret rolled a wish to ask Sim on a date.

She asked Harry Burb son of John Burb and he accepted, but he wasn't thrilled about it.

Well the date was a dream date anyway, Margaret must have inherited her mother's romantic tenancies as well.  She knew exactly how to drive this date to make it fun for everybody.  Five wishes were easily filled.

Just as Margaret said goodbye to Harry, George came home from work and announced he had gotten promoted.  He is now a perm plat Sim.  New LTW - become City Planner.  George always looks stoic.

He sure isn't stoic when he sees Debbie.  :)  On Friday he invited Debbie over for some boyfriend girlfriend time.

Kinda moved fast on this one, I forgot my own rule about waiting for engagement to spin up.  heh.  I guess I got excited about the genetics possibilities.

And she moved right in.  She is a Fortune Sim with the same LTW George had.  Wants to be a Business Tycoon.  Wishes upon moving in: Earn some money, get a job in Athletics, earn $100, and buy a scultpure. First wish fulfilled:  Buy a sculpture.

In the meanwhile Margaret came home from school with a wish to ask a Sim on a date.  This day it is Family Sim Robert Wolosenko, son of Mitch the Grocery Guy and plantsim Sunflower (Wilkie) Wolosenko.  Sunflower's step mother was Coral (Oldie) Wilkie.

No attraction here either.  But it seems that Robert has more tact than Harry least he didn't show an utter distaste for  Margaret.  Another dream date, and five wishes easily fulfilled for Margaret.

After Margaret finished her date with Robert she along with Debbie and George headed down to the park.  Debbie wanted to earn some cash as an acting barrister. It was alot of fun for Debbie, her best customer was her fiancee George.  Once she earned $100 and everyone ate a hotdog or two, the group headed back home.  Debbie fulfilled wishes to make money, and earn $100.  She also found time to put soap in the fountain. heh

Margaret wanted to ask a Sim on a date Saturday morning.  This time it was Eddie Dreamer, son of Dirk and Nichole Dreamer.  (From Nichole's abduction).  Eddie is getting around, he spun up Date 5 Sims while on this date with Margaret.  He is a Pleasure Sim and has two bolt attraction with Margaret.  5 wishes easily filled, an another dream date.  It appears they are making fun of John Burb here.  Perhaps Margaret is getting back at Harry for showing disdain for her.

When she wasn't dating, Margaret received gardening lessons from her Aunt Dina.  Margaret will be the gardener in the next generation.

Debbie took a job in Criminal as she was showing a wish for it when it came up. However she does keep checking the jobs every day for Business.  On this day she came home from work with a wish to ask Sim on a date.  So naturally she asks her fiancee.  It ended with woohoo in Dina's vehicle. heh

On Sunday Margaret spent the entire day partying in the hot tub with three friends she wished for out of the wishing well.  After sundown she finally got around to asking a Sim on a date to fulfill her wishes.  This day it was Goth Boy ending in another dream date for her.

Round 6 is ended with Dina diligently working her greenhouse in the wee hours Monday morning.  She had already had her turn sleeping in a bed.  :)

Ghost Sightings

Michael Bachelor makes an appearance

Margaret's father Mark Landchild was merciless with scaring!

Alright so Dina and Nina didn't get much screen time, that is because they are elders, perm plat, and have had their fun in the lime light.  It is time for the next generation.  Again just like last lot, it has been a fun and relaxing play.  I love to play lots that are pretty with lots of garden and flowers.  I wish my yard looked so good!

Dina Caliente - Perm plat, really didn't look at her wishes that much.  She did get her hobby plaque in Nature.  When she wasn't at work, she was training Margaret in gardening, and talking to the orchard trees that were put on the lot late in the season.  She hoped to get at least one harvest before they went dormant, which she was able to do.  She is still employed as Head of the SCIA.  She needs two more pet TOC to realize her current LTW.

Nina Caliente - Same story as Dina, perm plat and was just sort of there on the lot.  She did play with the pets at great length so none of them were lonely.  She still works as a Professional Party Guest.

George Caliente - George will carry on the Caliente name and needed to find a woman to do that with him.  Once he turned platinum, I did not check his wishes so much.  He spent his excess time giving financial advice on the computer, or playing games.   When Margaret had her birthday, George was showing a wish to have a party, so he invited all his college buddies over.  It was a nice reunion for them.

Debbie Johnston - I am looking foward to really playing her and marrying her and George off next round.  She wished for skills when she needed them, and interaction with George.  Ending wishes:  Get a promotion, go work, smustle dance, and dance with someone.

 Margaret Caliente - A pure joy to play.  She dated every single day after she aged up.  All of the boys with the exception of Goth Boy she already knew from coming home on the bus with them as kids.  She met Goth Boy the day before she dated him from the wishing well.  Ending wishes:  Ask Sim on date, smustle dance, make out with 5 Sims, and go hiking.

Not pictured at all:  The puppy in the first moniker grew up to be a full grown dog, the Maxis dog Maxx.  He was wished for in round 5.  He will provide the last two pet TOCs for Dina.  The two cats will have their Grim party next round.  So, perhaps the Calientes will start raising dogs then.

Have fun, and keep on simmin'!



  1. Looks like you had fun on this lot :) The Romancers make your job pretty easy I'm sure with all of their easy-to-fill wishes.

  2. That must have been a fun household to play! I love the shot of Margaret and her aunt in the greenhouse. Speaking of which - maybe the greenhouse could be smaller, and an extension with a bedroom added to the ground floor of the house instead?
    George looks so much like his father!

  3. Great round for the Caliente's. Margaret grew up well and is gorgeous like her mother. I like what you've done with the house, you made the house look bigger than it is!
    George and Debbie are a good match and it will be interesting to see the genetics next generation.

  4. did you manage to get your sims 2 working yet

    1. I went to the dark side and have been playing TS3 for a while. Maybe i will wrestle with TS2 soon.

  5. This house seems like so much fun. So many things going on and happy platinum sims to just let kind of do what they want. :)

  6. my first sims2 blog- and Margaret is gorgeous like her mother
