The Minchin Legacy 2.1

The Minchin Legacy
Last we left off, Jess had found love with Eli, the OCD plant sim, and was impregnated with his spawn. Which is on the way now.

The Minchin Legacy
Eli, despite being a family sim, does not seem happy about this.

The Minchin Legacy
Hatred, followed by “she loves me”. Eli, do you know you’re a family sim?

The Minchin Legacy
Jess rather likes the baby though, it’s a boy, Veyron, with his mother’s eyes, and a lighter skintone, possibly Eli’s genetics?

The Minchin Legacy
We have expanded the house for the baby.

The Minchin Legacy
Despite the little pop-up informing me that Jess has three days off to look after Veyron, she went to work. Eli then got a pop-up saying he needed to be at work, so I had to use his one action per life stage to call a nanny. Bastard game.

The Minchin Legacy
He fed Veyron.

The Minchin Legacy
Then left him surrounded by rotting bottles.

The Minchin Legacy
Jess fails at chance cards.

The Minchin Legacy
Eli has finally decided to stand still and enjoy the sun lamp. While I enjoy the picture of Michael Wincott he is painting.

The Minchin Legacy
Veyron remains where Eli left him.

The Minchin Legacy
About nine hours later, Eli moves him to the crib.

The Minchin Legacy
… where he stews in his own filth for hours.

The Minchin Legacy
Eli, I simply don’t care. I haven’t seen a wilted plant sim before, and I’d quite like to.

The Minchin Legacy
That I have seen before.

The Minchin Legacy
Jess is a good parent.

The Minchin Legacy
I have no idea what Eli is not in the mood for. But he’s doubly unhappy about it.

The Minchin Legacy
Eli looks delighted that he’s due in work shortly.

The Minchin Legacy
I’ve noticed that the first action of a nanny never corresponds with the rest of their behaviour. See, she’s changing the nappy, but that means nothing. She’s a nanny. It will not end well.

The Minchin Legacy
Jess gets promoted, and Eli gets a job offer from the guy he brought home with him. I have to accept, yes?

The Minchin Legacy
Eli pretends he’s a nanny.

The Minchin Legacy
Except the reason for his terrible parenting was a booty call from Jess.

The Minchin Legacy
I missed when the actual passing out happened, but Eli conked out from sun depravation again.

The Minchin Legacy
Jess has been checking the computer daily checking for jobs (she has to use the computer from Mr Humble, because I downloaded a default replacement newspaper, which has fucked my game, even after I’ve removed it – my sims and pets are unable to search for jobs). Anyway, Jess has finally found a job in the dance career. We’re on our way to filling a LTW.

The Minchin Legacy
I think Eli is the worst family sim I’ve ever seen.

The Minchin Legacy
Pop!

The Minchin Legacy
Sparkly Veyron.

The Minchin Legacy
His first act as a toddler is to drink from a filthy bottle, then vomit it back up.

The Minchin Legacy
Then drink from it again…

The Minchin Legacy
… and vomit again.

The Minchin Legacy
Then he heads off to play in the toilet, while his parent get up to what my friend calls “rudies”.

The Minchin Legacy
Some people are never happy.

The Minchin Legacy
Nanny: OMG! Why won’t this bitch move? I want to sit down and watch telly. I’m sure Veyron’s fine without me.

The Minchin Legacy
You’re right, he is.

The Minchin Legacy
This is either fitness or another pop.

The Minchin Legacy
Jess sits down and teaches Veyron to speak.

The Minchin Legacy
Only to be rudely interrupted by labour.

The Minchin Legacy
Veyron looks delighted. I hit “random” on the Twins, Triplets & Quads hack, and look… triplets. *sigh*. I guess this is the payoff for the luckiness of Veyron being a random single birth.

The Minchin Legacy
Vanquish (boy).

The Minchin Legacy
Violet (girl).

The Minchin Legacy
Viper (girl).
And in case you hadn’t noticed, the names are car makes/models, starting at the far end of the alphabet and working backwards, just to ensure the Bugatti Veyron got a mention in this legacy. Even though I don’t drive, that’s my dream car.

The Minchin Legacy
Is anyone else unnerved that Jess is thinking of her children while using a blender?

The Minchin Legacy
Chance card… *fingers crossed*

The Minchin Legacy
Win!

The Minchin Legacy
Oh, this is the first time the Nanny does this, but not the last. Not by far.

The Minchin Legacy
Birthday time! As always, I do this alphabetically, because I can’t tell babies apart. Even real ones. Much less Sim ones. This is Vanquish.

The Minchin Legacy
Violet. (Please note the green stink cloud in the far right)
Then Jess had to go to work, and there was a strange moment in the game, where everyone was gathered around the cake, waiting for Viper to age, while she slumbered on peacefully. Nobody would do anything else. I figured it wasn’t cheating to close the “Watch Birthday” icon in everyone’s action queue.

The Minchin Legacy
Hey, Vanquish, nice place to pass out. I like that your hair defies gravity.

The Minchin Legacy
Eli wakes Viper up, and takes her to the cake, and “Watch Birthday” appears in Jess’ action queue. Everyone freezes again. I repeat the above process.

The Minchin Legacy
Vanquish wakes up to tell everyone he’s tired.

The Minchin Legacy
Vanquish: Dad! I’m tired! Want bed!
Eli: I’m sorry, I have no idea what you want.

The Minchin Legacy
Veyron, Violet and Viper: Kill the noisy one.

The Minchin Legacy
Viper finally ages into epic cuteness. I don’t seem to have toddler pics of the others yet. I’ll point them out as we come to them.

The Minchin Legacy
Oh, the love in this picture.

The Minchin Legacy
Violet is made of sunshine, marshmallow fluff, angel’s love, and smiles.

The Minchin Legacy
Viper, not so much.

The Minchin Legacy
Given that Violet is an angel, she’s too good for this legacy, and determined to escape.

The Minchin Legacy
See above description. Angel.

The Minchin Legacy
See above description. Not an angel.

The Minchin Legacy
This was Veyron and Viper’s first interaction. Clearly Veyron’s cute-factor cancels out Viper’s evil.

The Minchin Legacy
Jess got a promotion, but still desperately tries to placate four mad children whose needs she does not understand.

The Minchin Legacy
I appear to have missed Veyron’s birthday, but hey, who hasn’t seen a birthday shot before.
He’s irritatingly speedy. Runs around everywhere. Also, that’s the Nanny’s pee he’s splashing in.

The Minchin Legacy
Jess: Well done for growing up well! I’m proud of you, son.
Veyron: Fuck you, and the horse you rode in on, mother.

The Minchin Legacy
Nanny pees herself (#3).

The Minchin Legacy
And again (#4) same room, different location.

The Minchin Legacy
I swear to god, all Minchin children stink of Nanny wee.

The Minchin Legacy
Luckily, getting peed on is not a fear, otherwise these kids would be fucked.

The Minchin Legacy
Yes, that’s exactly what the tired child needs. A bottle.

The Minchin Legacy
Veyron is brilliant. He bathes every two seconds, and when he’s not bathing, he’s tidying up or sensibly sleeping in the bed I bought him. It’s a bit boring, if I’m honest.

The Minchin Legacy
Another chance card.

The Minchin Legacy
Another win. And Jess got a promotion out of it.

The Minchin Legacy
That’s an… interesting place to sleep, Violet.

The Minchin Legacy
Eli, it appears, has just become BFFs with his son, despite having almost no interaction with him. How?

The Minchin Legacy
Veyron is showing a bit of nastiness (I blame that hug with Viper). Vanquish was playing with the teddy, and Veyron took it off him.

The Minchin Legacy
All three toddlers are desperate for a wash.

The Minchin Legacy
Sunshine girl finds it funny though.

The Minchin Legacy
I’m sure Vanquish really appreciates you two dancing on his head.

The Minchin Legacy
And that seems like a sensible place to leave it.
It has absolutely nothing to do with the fact I hit exit by mistake.
