Roman Round 3: Moran

This one’s going to be a short update. The Moran family is always a breeze to play through but this means fewer pictures.

This is literally the first thing Les and Rain did when I opened the game. They’d lived together for all of ten minutes.

When they were done they went downstairs for a simple wedding ceremony. Rain Dusk became Rain Wynn. I really should change Les and Rain’s name because he isn’t a Wynn at all….

Look’s like Fira isn’t happy to be marrying her late husband’s little brother.

The shop had to be run so Luna took charge of that giving both couples some alone time. The line builds up really quick in their store.

Alba grew up. 🙂 She’s fairly cute.

Fira and Syd took their time making it to the bedroom.

Sims2EP7 2014-09-02 11-44-43-94

I like the two of them together.

Sims2EP7 2014-09-02 11-52-12-16

Looks like Fira will soon have another baby.

Sims2EP7 2014-09-02 11-45-05-24

A non flour sack baby that is. But don’t let her hear me say it.

Sims2EP7 2014-09-02 11-53-16-48

Maybe an hour after Fira discovered her pregnancy Rain discovered she too was pregnant.

I find it so funny when this happens… One couple tries to shoo the other away. Les and Rain won, of course they did.

Sims2EP9 2014-09-02 17-33-39-23

I have so many family sims in aspiration failure it isn’t even funny.

Sims2EP9 2014-09-02 17-35-17-20

Rain had a difficult pregnancy.

Sims2EP9 2014-09-02 17-51-13-48

Fira hardly seemed to notice.

  Sims2EP9 2014-09-02 17-55-46-50

More sims need to get cats if I’m to have a sustainable pet population come the next era.

Sims2EP9 2014-09-02 17-57-31-76

Too bad most of the current pets are kind of ugly.

The Moran family have been terribly unlucky. The only surviving male in the direct Moran line is Syd. I’m not even kidding.

Sims2EP9 2014-09-02 17-58-15-58

As you can see here he’s one of 11 kids, 7 boys, 4 girls. He’s the only one still alive. I don’t know how he managed it. In the second generation, also with 11 kids, Kani, an elderly patrician is the only surviving sim born into the Moran family. I think Syd has a male cousin or two but if he doesn’t have some sons the Moran line might become extinct.

Sims2EP9 2014-09-02 18-01-31-62

Ok woohooing with your lover/former guardian. Fair enough.

Sims2EP9 2014-09-02 18-01-54-12

In the middle of the day, in the middle of the shop and only a sideways glance away from your wife finding out. It’s stupidity like this that killed off your family.

Sims2EP9 2014-09-02 18-04-25-47

Rain nearly lost the baby. Hopefully her future pregnancies aren’t this bad.

Sims2EP9 2014-09-02 18-06-29-52

They went to the park. It was pretty uneventful tbh.

Sims2EP9 2014-09-02 18-07-06-12

They played some red hands and went home.

Sims2EP9 2014-09-02 18-19-55-12

Soon it was time for the babies to be born.

Sims2EP9 2014-09-02 18-21-08-34

Fira had a son, named Kleon. Originally it was a girl but I had to reenter the lot because Rain glitched out when she had her baby. I kinda feel like it was cheating to get Kleon even though I had to save and exit but yay the dark blue eyes have resurfaced 😀

Sims2EP9 2014-09-02 18-23-36-30

Rain’s pregnancy completely glitched so in the end I had to terminate it. Eventually I got her to have a son named Korin. I eventually managed to fix the back of his head but from now on my babies won’t have hair because I had to take out the skins to stop this happening to dark skinned babies. 😦

Sims2EP9 2014-09-02 18-24-16-67

Of course Fira and Syd jumped straight back into bed.

  1. I loved the actions that lead to the picture with this “It’s stupidity like this that killed off your family.” XD classic sims.

    How are you able to have triplets/quads on already loaded lots? AND pets! In the last family (just to be confusing I’m commenting here) where the sim had quads and you have like 15 on the lot? I used to have a hack that allowed families of 12 but only once did I manage to trick it into allowing me to have 11, the most I could get was 9, on a rare occasion10, and then nothing I did would allow more sims. And no matter how much I tweak the quads/triplets hack I rarely get them; I actually chose triplets manually in my last round just for a bit of variety instead of twins twins and oh look more twins. If I have 7 sims on the lot though it won’t let me ask for more than twins.

    Also, your roman housing is awesome. I want it. *steals*

    • From memory Syd had a few aunts and uncles who died for pretty much that exact reason. They really need to be more careful who they flirt with in front of whom, it’s a good thing Fira’s a romance/family sim not a family/romance sim.

      I think it has something to do with the specific hack you use. For a long time I had a hack that would allow bigger households but wouldn’t let pets breed in bigger households so it involved a lot of swapping and changing to get one that worked with pets and T&Q. I’m pretty sure I use this one: but you may need to try a few and play around with them to get really big families.

      You rarely get triplets or quads? Lucky. I like the possibility of them but I like to keep them pretty rare. Even with the odds at a combined 3% I’ve had at least one set every two rounds so far. That doesn’t sound like a lot but I still don’t have many households. I think I have three sets at the moment who aren’t even adults yet.

      • That has to be an ad somewhere “Need population control? Just Add Romance Sim!” XD

        This mod is insane! Thank you so much for it. Big families, for all their sometimes stress, are so much fun. Here’s hoping it works too. I’m looking forward to trying it out as I already have a full house with one family (they were obviously bunnies in a previous existence).

        I said rarely, I should have said never, I’ve only had them once (naturally) way back in the beginning when I first got it, but thinking about it now – yeah, quads every round might be sanity annihilating. Though in this case didn’t the father of them die before they were born? More possibilities his family branch lives on!

  2. Good luck in getting more of them. I bet once they start rolling in they just won’t stop. That’s the way T&Q always works. In my game it tends to go something like this “Please be triplets or quads, I’m so sick of twins. Please be triplets or quads. Yay triplets!” *three rounds later* “don’t be triplets or quads… don’t be triplets or quads… of for the love of plumbbob don’t be triplets or quads….. oh @$%^!”

    The father of these quads is still alive and kicking, good thing too because I have plans for him. I did have the mother who had triplets in the first round die in the second but her children decided to murder each other so it worked out the same as having a single baby.
