Round 5. Status

Round 5 Scoring


Things are looking pretty good...there were lots of hobby plaques and badges awarded this round, mainly due to the achievements in University.  At the end of round four the point total was 119.  So there has been an increase of 29.16%.  Not bad.

Number of Sims

Hasn't gotten out of control yet!

Swan Legacy

Moving along really slow.  I haven't looked at the scoring for that in a while...maybe next round...heh

Real Life is going to put a strangle hold on me for the next few weeks, going to be busy.  But will play when I can.

Thanks for sticking with ASimWen's Prosperity 2~!  See you in round 6!

Round 5 Gold.1 (Buckingham)

Lacy (Gold) Buckingham - Fortune - Be A Hall of Famer
Tyson Buckingham - Family - Be a Captain Hero

Last round:  Lacy Gold returned from University having not landed in her father's house.  She built her own little cabin on a hillside and loved it.  She firstly got a job in Natural Science to pay the bills.  She was in love with two men...Kennedy Cox and Tyson Buckingham and could not choose.  So she thought to let love choose for her.  She planned  a party and invited the two gentlemen.  The first one to make a romantic move on her would be the one she would spend the rest of her life with.  Kennedy was the clear winner when he leaned in for a romantic kiss.  Tyson was immediately consumed with jealousy...while Tyson and Lacy had words,  Kennedy made the fatal mistake of grabbing for the cake from the Cowplant..and was gone in the blink of an eye.  The rest of the week Lacy spent winning Tyson back over to the marriage camp.  The round ended with the nuptials of Lacy Gold and Tyson Buckingham.  What are the two up to this week?

Tyson was moving along swimmingly in his job on the force.  He was happy...he had a great job to support his beautiful wife who was pregnant with his child.

He came home everyday from work exhausted, and studied for the next promotion when he was awake.  Lacy was taking maternity leave from work in order to get plenty of rest.

On Tuesday evening little Martin was born.

Lacy:  Who's mamma's big boy?  What a cutie patooty you are!

Tyson:  (Who had been looking forward to his son's birth)  I am a dad now, along with being a husband.  Woo hooo....

Lacy returned to work finally, and reached the top of her career.  However it seemed there was an error with her pay.  (look at that last line).  Lacy and Tyson's cash on hand amount didn't change.  No money was subtracted, nor was any added.  So ASimWen looked it up on Sims Wikki.  One thing ASimWen learned from the article was Natural Science was the highest paying job.  Hmmm.?  Is it?  I dunno.

At any rate this is how much that should have had deposited into her bank, $31,491.  So the family funds cheat was used to adjust.

Lacy thought it would have been great to hang around as an Ecological Guru for a while for the money, as money was short since adding onto the house for Martin's birth.  But her dream job came up right away on the computer, and she took it.

Has anyone ever seen this before?  I don't recall ever seeing it.  It popped like in the middle of the second week of Lacy's adult life.  What triggered it?

 Tyson:  Now I know everything there is to know about Science.  

Shortly after Tyson received the Hobby Plaque in Science, it was time for Martin's birthday.  Grandpa and Grandma Gold came to the party, as well as Auntie Belle, Uncle Henry, and Uncle Sherlock.

Happy birthday...Martin. I think?  Cute kiddo~!

And the party commenced.  While some danced the smustle, Lacy and her step mother Cora (Mills) Gold got caught up on news.

 Step brothers in law Tyson and Sherlock Gold had a nice chat......

Lacy's sister Belle and brother in law Henry showed everyone how to do the smustle...

It was a great party, so great that Demi Love had to come and break it up.  Everyone left, having felt good they attended.

The training of Martin in his life skills immediately commenced.  Tyson being a Family Sim, rolled continual wishes to teach Martin how to walk, talk, and potty.  And so it was!

And skilling continued for Lacy and Tyson as well.  Lacy maxed cooking and rolled a wish to win the hobby plaque.

Tyson needed cleaning skills to promote in his job in law enforcement, so the scanner gun was coming in really handy.  He went around the house scanning everything.

And I mean everything.  Yes Tyson, Kennedy Cox was the last one to use the cowplant.

Lacy was surprised by this news.  heh.

Lacy amassed enough skills to reach the top of her career, thus becoming perm plat.  But she had already reached perm plat by way of filling up her aspiration bar when Martin was born.  New LTW?  To Become the Law like her sister.

By now spring had sprung and that meant it was time to start gardening.  On the bottom land of the lot where the ground was flat, Tyson got to work.  He had no gardening skill or nature skills.  This was hard work for him where as Lacy had earned a gold badge in gardening in University.

Again, Martin had another party to child.

And again officer Demi Love had to shut it down.  The Buckinghams know how to throw a birthday party, apparently.

The garden started growing, then it snowed one last time.  The cowplant which still held Kennedy's essence, was placed in the garden.  However, it was early Sunday morning and the Buckinghams decided to go to the park after it warmed up a bit outside.

Martin didn't bother changing out of his pajamas, crazy kiddo.

Lacy and Tyson sat down to have a cup of coffee, and Martin whipped out pole and began fishing in the pond at the park.  Lacy was so glad it was spring time the garden was out and fun family outings were to be had.

There was a cookout...of course.  Martin couldn't understand why it was snowing during spring.

Upon returning home, Tyson felt it was time to call the Garden Club.  Since he had been working the garden, he wished to get a perfect garden score. So work was done on the lot, to hopefully pass the intense inspection.

While Tyson called the Garden Club lady, Lacy swung Martin around outside.  There is very little flat ground here.  

Tyson:  Thank you for coming, Ms. Zarubin.  This is very exciting I never thought I would ever be trying to get into the Garden Club!

Tiffany:  Just about everyone in this town is getting in the Garden Club sonny.  If ya like to garden, this is the place to be!

Lacy having a gold gardening badge, placed herself in the garden to pull the weeds that suddenly started springing up.  Tyson just wasn't fast enough to get them as the garden inspectors looked at everything.

Garden Club Guy:  Hmmm...beautiful bushes.

Guy:  Like the lights too!

Wow,  didn't realize the Garden Club looked at the flowers in the window, available in build mode.

Heh.  Left the wishing well on the deck since there wasn't a place flat enough in the yard.

Tyson earned the bronze badge in gardening...

And received admittance to Peerless Park.  Go you, Tyson!  Yes, that is a tombstone in the back of the garden among the trees.  It is Kennedy's.

This ends this week with the Buckinghams, Martin gobbling down some eggs before the school bus came on Monday Morning.

Tyson earned the hobby plaque in science and joined the Garden Club.  Those were the only achievements this round.  I was more focused on just trying to play the lot..period.  It is uneven, difficult to play.  The camera was hard to position to take pictures...wish I had not built this wonder of a house.  heh

Anyway, this is the end of round 5. Thank you for reading, and keep on Simmin'!  Next up - Summary!


Round 5 University Part II

Here we are with Part II, University.

Joining Lila and Neal are brother and sister Leroy and Lana Swan, from the Swan Legacy.  Per legacy rules, the heir taking over the household must marry an Leroy will be keeping his eye out.

Leroy Swan - Popularity - Wants to Become a Media Magnate.  Heir to the Swan legacy.

Lana Swan - Pleasure - Wants 50 1st Dates.  Good thing there are two wishing wells on this lot.  Probably should have brought a third one.  Sorry Lana...that silver evening gown will have to go.

Right away Leroy and Lana went to University Shoppes to buy clothes and phones.  Lila and Neal tagged along.

Lila:  Oh!

Lila and Neal share a hug, and one of Neal's loves....Kaylynn Miguel... sees them.  Shock!

Well it wasn't Neal who got smacked silly, it was Lila.  How funny.

Back at the dorm, the accolades continued.

Lila gets access to My Muse II - Art Studio
Leroy gets membership to Sue's Kitchen while skilling culinary.

Lana gets abducted by the Secret Society the first day.  She was already friends with Lila and Neal, then just found one more SS person while in town buying clothes.

Neal gets bronze in Robotics
Silver in Toymaking for Lila. 
Ha.  Caught this one.  For some reason no balloon pops saying the badge was won.

Constantly working the crafting tables and gardening is hard work.  Lila takes a hit of Pepper Punch to gain energy.

While doing some simple "dating", Lana gained membership to My Muse II because of working the flower arranging table.     She draws from the pool of people who pop out of the well.  Having to do 50 1st dates means she will date all types!

***GACK***!!!   Leroy gets shoved around by his dad for looking through the telescope.  heh Leroy is working toward the Science hobby plaque.

ZZZZAaaaappppp!  Having robotics experts in house means the cow will have second thoughts before trying to come in the dorm.

Neal gets his gold in gardening.

Lila gets the Arts and Crafts hobby plaque.

She then started on Music and Dance, but kept complaining about actually dancing.  She hates it...would start dancing,  then hunch over like she didn't want anyone to watch her.  Then she would simply walk away from the stereo.  ASimWen figured it wasn't for her.  So she started doing yoga for fitness.

Bronze in flower arranging for Lana.

Leroy finally gets abducted, and gets the kewl suit.

Silver in flower arranging for Lana.

Leroy finishes up with the Science plaque while watching the SimWeather channel.

Ha.  Lana is getting lots of love letters due to all the dating she has been doing.

Gold in robotics for Neal.

Leroy takes over the robotics table and gains admittance to Wills Garage.

Arts and Crafts hobby plaque for between all the dating!

After all this was time for final exams.

Lana was now a Sophomore!

Neal finally made it to his Senior year.

Leroy and Lila's final exam was at the same hour.  Leroy moved to his Sophomore year, and Lila was now a Senior.

Alright.  Time to show off some that is basically all this University play is.

Gold in Toys for Neal
Gold in Flower Arranging for Lana
Gold in Robotics for Leroy

Lila and Neal start working on Fitness.

Leroy wins the the Tinkering plaque

Lila beat Neal to the Fitness plaque.   Neal kept slipping out of yoga form and running over to the computer to play.  He would also go outside to see who Lana was dating.

Occasionally Lana would get some of the same folks out of the wishing well that Neal did, and that made for quick thinking on ASimWen's part to keep everyone separated.  Lana couldn't afford to lose anyone with her needed high date count of 50.  Or to make Neal's girlfriend Lila jealous!  One wish gave Lana both the Diva and Mr. Big at the same time for friends.

Lana is not getting date gifts since she isn't staying in the date long enough to make it a dream date...but she is getting lots of love letters.  Why, Leroy pulled 5 of them out of the mailbox one day.

Neal finally earned the Fitness Hobby Plaque.  Good for him!

Gold in Toymaking for Leroy

Culinary Hobby Plaque for Lana
 And since Neal and Lila finished up fitness, they started on Film and Literature.

Neal - Membership Card
They spent their last semester of University writing books.

Lila - Membership Card
So is time to wrap up this chapter of University.  If your brains are not numb from reading about the plaque getting and badge earning.
