Random Musings: My Supernatural Sims House Update

 
 

Since the introductory post went over so well and most of you said you wanted updates, here we are!

I do have a bit of news though. I got rid of the ghost (sorry to anyone who liked him!) since he just wasn’t clicking for me. But I added three new sims to make up for it! You won’t get to meet one of them until the next update though since I didn’t create him until after making this post, and I don’t have a good photo of him.

Also, a little explanation of something else before I get to the shenanigans. I’m still playing The Sims 3, in case anyone doesn’t know. Since it’s been out for a long time, there are lots of mods (modifications) available. And my game is modded out like crazy. I have so many mods at this point that I don’t even know what’s part of the original game and what’s caused/changed by mods. I love them though because they make the game so much more realistic, sometimes more difficult (which is good in a game where everything is generally pretty easy),ย  and sometimes more interesting. Before starting this house, I had gotten bored, so I downloaded some especially interesting mods to spice things up. One of those allows sims to have sex for money.

Another bit of explanation. I originally created Jacobin for use in another game, but instead I made him a witch and put him in this one. And in my original idea for Jacobin, he was going to be a prostitute, so I decided to keep that aspect of him. This info will be important later. On that cryptic note, you may now commence with the rest of the post ;-)

 

 

The New Sims

This is Rameses, the eccentric, bookworm mummy. (You all better tell me how much you love this mummy because he was the biggest pain in the ass ever to get looking and functioning how I wanted him to because mummies in the game are normally wrapped in bandages and walk with an obnoxiously slow mummy shamble.)

 

This is Pin, the good-hearted, eco-friendly plantsim. (In the game, plant sims have leafy, green skin, leafy hair, leafy clothes… they’re just very leafy. I edited him to make him look more human. And in my head he’s a dryad.)

 

The New Shenanigans

– Elliott (the werewolf) continues to have the funniest interactions. In addition to sniffing people, scratching furniture, eating raw meat, and eating meals by crouching on the chair and shoving his face into them while in werewolf form, he can also play fetch and have his belly rubbed.

– Also, I love that when Matthew (the faerie) and Elliott became a couple and slept in the same bed that first night, Matthew has automatically slept in Elliott’s bed ever since even though his old bed is still available. Too cute. #Matthiott5eva

– Sims in TS3 have wishes. Pin (the plantsim) has wishes that are literally things like, “catch a butterfly during a full moon,” “see a wild horse,” “flower kiss a sim,” and “commune with 5 different plants.” It couldn’t be more perfect for how I imagine him. And that whole communing with plants thing? He can talk to and flirt with plants.

– Jacobin (the witch) entered a supernatural trivia contest and won first place (plus $2000), proving he’s more than just a pretty face ;-)

– Speaking of Jacobin, there has been an unforseen plot twist. Remember what I said about that prostitution mod? Well, I was playing my game one night when all the sudden a notification came up, and it turns out Jacobin is a baby daddy! But wait, it gets worse. He must have some strong swimmers because he slept with two women one night, and BOTH got pregnant. So he has TWO daughters now with two different women. And one of the women is a married politician o.0 And they’re both kinda crazy. Literally one of them has the ‘insane’ trait, I think. (Pictured below is one of the mothers at the park with the daughter.) Lesson learned. Jacobin will be sticking to the menfolk from now on.

– Also speaking of Jacobin, the Jacovine flirting continues! He and Levine (the vampire) reached the point where even when I don’t tell them to flirt, they just do it themselves. At one point I just sat there and watched them—not telling them to do anything, just watching them woo each other on their own. They mostly complimented each other a lot, and then Jacobin gave Levine a massage. #Jacovine4lyf

– Levine tried to use his hypnotic powers on Jacobin one day, but it backfired, and he hypnotized himself. I’ve never actually seen a sim make a “this is awkward” face but if that isn’t exactly what Jacobin’s face is saying, then I’ll be damned.

– My sims have been oddly expressive with their faces lately as well as really living up to their supernatural stereotypes. I mean, just look at Alim hovering in the air and looking like the mischievous genie that he is, and Levine’s perfect vampire smirk, and Rameses who looks like he’s still having a bit of trouble adjusting to being human-ish again after all that time as a mummy, and even Jacobin’s smolder that apparently gave Alim a bit of a crush.

– I don’t think I mentioned before that Alim (the genie) is an artist. He loves to paint. Sometimes, apparently, he paints chipmunk mosaics.

– Last but not least for this post, Alim and Matthew went to the art museum in town one day. Poor Matthew, the emotional little fae that he is, was moved to tears by some of the paintings, and he looked very unsettled by others.

 
 

Talk to me!

Are you as surprised by the Jacobin plot twist as I am?
Would you frame Alim's chipmunk mosaic on your wall?
How about give Elliott a belly rub?

      It is getting kind of crazy. Who knew it could be so much fun to have such unexpected things happen lol! It’s definitely a unique painting the people who create this game think of the most random things LOL.

  1. Lola

    I am not even sure why, but it’s a lot of fun reading about your sims and what happened now. I like your new sims, although the mummy does look a bit normal now. I like the idea of the plant supernatural and that he can flirt with plants, lol. That’s a big plot twists indeed that Jacobin fathered two babies now. Your sims really have the funniest expression on their faces sometimes.

    And that chipmunk mosaic painting looks pretty cool! I wouldn’t mind having that on my wall :).

    1. Kristen Burns

      I wanted the mummy to look normal, I just wanted him to have the mummy interactions and traits :-) It’s funny that the plantsim can flirt with plants, and the Jacobin Twist cracked me up so much because I was not expecting it!

      It’s Kind of a weird painting, but it is also pretty!

  2. Greg

    You can have plantsims/ dryads? I had no idea you could go all mythical/ supernatural to this extent. Kinda cool. Jacobin’s been kinda busy… I like that plot development. I wonder how many babies he’d have if left to his own devices? :P

    Love that Levine tried to hypno Jacobin and it backfired. What an opportunist lol.

    Matthew’s a sensitive soul.

      Yeah there are plant Sims! I had never actually played with one before. I don’t know if they base them off dryads or something, that’s just what he is in my head LOL.

      Honestly, it’s all my fault that Jacobin has two kids now LOL. But I just about died laughing because I was so not expecting that.

      Matthew has the over-emotional trait, so he is a sensitive soul! He’s adorable though <3

    Okay, I officially love these blog posts, and you really need to make this a series, haha! Where do you get your mods? I’ve always been playing the regular games but get a little bored after a while. I’m honestly so impressed that you’re playing so many Sims at the same time! I cannot keep track of them for the life of me.

    1. Kristen Burns

      It pretty much is becoming a series lol. I’ve gotten most of my mods from Mod The Sims. My custom content, like clothes and hair, I’ve gotten mostly from The Sims Resource. Skins I’ve mostly just found randomly by Googling.

      Before this house, I pretty much just played houses with one or two adult Sims and that was it. But at first, that was part of the fun. I couldn’t control all of them, so they just got into all sorts of trouble lol. But now I’ve gotten used to 8 sims and am back to micromanaging -_-

    Kristen! You totally make me want to reinstall my game…. But I can’t.. I barely have spare time as it is so that would be insanely counter-productive… Right?

    I love your update. It’s so interesting seeing all the interactions and it’s amazing what they can do! That game is so addictive.

    *I will not install…. I will not install*

    I screeched when I read your comment on my blog that you have a new sims update I’M SO FRAKCEN HAPPY.
    oh my god THE SMOLDER. I AM HAVING TANGLED VIBES FROM THAT LOOK HOLY CRAP. Talk about Flynn Rider I mean wow. WOW.
    I absolutely adore Alim and his love of art. I feel like he and I would get along very well. I hereby place a bid on his chipmunk mosaic, and I will outbid everyone. It’s so cute! I love little chippies!
    I just can’t get over how absolutely adorable Elliot is. He’s so like, innocent and warm and bah he’s so cute.
    THAT PLOT TWIST THOUGH. Like okay, geez. Two in one night? dang, Jacobin.
    Pin’s wishes and aspirations make my heart sing. I feel the same way. I would like to capture a butterfly on a full moon too :P

    1. Kristen Burns

      Haha I think that was the face Jacobin made after blowing a kiss to someone, but it looked so much like Flynn’s smolder that I just HAD to use that word to describe it! You’d better display that chipmunk artwork with pride where everyone who enters your home will see it! Gah, Elliott IS adorable, right? But so is Matthew! It’s why they’re so dang adorable together lol. The plot twist was so unexpected, haha. I still haven’t managed to find any butterflies for Pin, but I’ll help him fulfill that wish eventually!

  6. Danya @ Fine Print

    Rameses is awesome! And kinda hot. Plus no mummy shamble, which is a definite bonus. Elliott is soooo adorable, haha. The idea of him going about his werewolfy business and then pausing for a good belly rub makes me giggle. Yikes, bit of a rough week for Jacobin! I hope he’ll pony up for child support, at least. ;)

      He is totally hot. And photogenic too lol. And oh gosh, it took him like three hours to walk across the yard with that mummy shamble -_- Haha, when you describe Elliott like that, it really is adorable. Well I imagine the politician wouldn’t even tell Jacobin and would just try and play it off as her husband’s child, so he wouldn’t have to worry about paying child support to her lol.
