So I'm now at the point in my neighbourhood when Cassandra and Don's generation have turned into teens, so I felt it was the time to make Mortimer and Bella have Alexander. Problem is that it makes him much older in relation to the other children/teens in the "official" version of Pleasantview (Mary-Sue and Daniel are still in their mid-teens as well and Brandi and the Caliente sisters are still children). And the other problem is that the current heir to the Crumplebottom family already turned out pretty much a carbon copy of "official" Alexander Goth in appearance, character and the way I'm playing him.
So when the first male baby came out with Bella's skintone instead of Mortimer's I thought "Simmit" and went with that (usually I reset until the baby matches the phenotype of their official version, Daniel Pleasant took a loooooooong time >_>)
I named the boy Magnus and hope that he will grow up into something of a "male Bella" . I might still add Alexander later. My version of Brandi Newbie already has an older sister and two older brothers, so there's room for a third Goth child.
Magnus meanwhile is of a similar enough age for Dinah and Nina to try to woo him rather than his father in this version (especially since Bella won't disappear) Maybe I'll make him Dina's first husband (Since Michael Bachelor is already married and has four children in my version) then they could get divorced for some reason, and Dinah can marry Dirk Dreamer (I like to pair those two up for some reason) hahaha.
I spent the last half hour playing my least favorite household, only for the game to crash. It has not crashed in months--not since I did the 4GB patch and other helpful things. I have had absolutely no issues with this game. I didn't update it (unless Origin now magically updates even if you set yourself to offline mode).
I'm so, so, so indescribably angry. It hasn't crashed in so long. I didn't save, because I've had this cozy, secure feeling that my game is impenetrable.
Well, apparently not. I spent the entire day wasting time because I couldn't decide if I wanted to play or not, because I don't like playing this household but I can't very well skip them. They're PlantSims and they run the only grocery store in town. They make huge bank so I milk them for tax money to go toward a university. I load in, 30 minutes later we're on Saturday, and I'm thinking, "Great, almost done with their rotation", and then, BAM, crash.
I'm sorry your game is acting up so badly. It sometimes feels like you're pounding your head into the monitor when it happens. Hope you find the cause of it soon.
In my Tinsel Town, I've gotten the second set of couples installed into their new homes and starting their permanent relationships. The ACR 'fool me three times and I'm flabbergasted' has happened yet again:
Brian Sherman moved into his new home with his fiancee, Doreen Hoffman. They had the day off, and of course the very first thing they did was have fun on the couch.
They'd been planning to get married in a church later that day, but Mother Nature decided to pull a fast one and make Doreen pregnant before they could do so. Nonetheless, they got hitched right at home, and 18 hours later Doreen and Brian became the parents of the first (and hopefully only) set of quadruplets in the town-3 boys and 1 girl-Lucas, Duncan, Chester and Kathleen Sherman.
Both Brian and Doreen realized that they had to go to work that same day and earn enough money to buy a bigger house in order to raise their small battalion of bottle gurglers. They hired a nanny and prayed that she'd be on time, because they'd have to be at work at 8 am.
