The Dietz Family: Fall, Year One  

First round of my BaCC! Eee! I'm excited. How about you?

Everything starts normally. Household is hungry,

The welcome wagon arrives and the matchmaking begins.

Even the match maker shows up to try to earn some cash. She's greeted and then ignored.

Prospective mate swap, since the original pairing isn't working so well.

The swap doesn't appear to help.

"You see, this would have been a cute couple, but you had to go and pair him up before you got started."

Apparently, Linus is a neat freak, and that includes his grooming habits. He does this at least once a day.

But after his germaphobia and narcissism, Linus makes time for his lovely lady.

Josef finally started to make progress with Uaine. They've two bolts. Uaine's half-brother Kelvin doesn't approve.

Guess who this townie is.


C'mon, just guess.

Give up? It's an aged up and extracted Marsha Bruenig. She turned out pretty nicely. I made her a knowledge Sim.

Hans seems to be having luck with Marsha Bruenig.

Lara is pregnant. I'm not surprised, either.

The plans for Marsha and Hans may not work.

Or maybe they will.

The men of the house spent most of their time digging for treasure or fishing. They found two treasure chests, tons of bones, rocks, and burst pipes.

Hans earned a silver fishing badge before the week ended. Oceanography career, here he comes!

Victor Valjean moved to the neighborhood. Any Sim unfortunate enough to marry him will be subjected to the miserable Sims challenge.

Finally, Josef and Uaine seem to be getting along well. The plan is to have him move in with Uaine at the end of her round.

They also found a 15th century Song vase worth four thousand simoleons.

First child born in Jennerica, and of course, it happens in the bathroom.

Meet Gregory Dietz. Looks just like his father.

In gaining enthusiasm for science and the logic skill, Hans was abducted. Unlike most Knowledge Sims, he wasn't happy about it.

Lara's garden is growing nicely, but it may not be ready for harvest before winter.

Such pretty fish!

Josef set the first fire in Jennerica, and Linus saved the day.

Marsha is also a good fisherwoman.

Linus is alien preggers!

After finding their last treasure chest, Lara purchased the first business in Jennerica: Morning Dew Coffee.

Many hours later, Mazarine was the bold first customer.

Back at the house, it's Gregory's birthday.

As my gift today, the house I built for the Dietzes. It's 2BR/1BA, and costs only §5048. It probably requires all expansions and stuff packs, as I have all installed.

This makes me want to go downstairs. Why? Because if I'm downstairs, I can use my mouse and sim. But downstairs is like a fridge and sooooo frozen. ;-; SO IF I FREEZE, IT IS YOUR FAULT.

I'm glad the teasing was worth it? And that was exactly my evil plan, to tempt you into playing despite Artic conditions. Might I suggest these: http://www.etsy.com/search?includes%5B%5D=tags&q=fingerless+gloves ? I discovered their uses when I was working retail as a cashier right next to a drafty, constantly opening (and never fully closing) exterior door. If you can find ones that turn into mittens, all the better.

I really like your mix of maxis content and cc! Both for the house & coffee shop but also for clothes and appearance - looks like just enough cc to keep you sane and little enough so your game opens quickly - lucky! I don't know much about BACCs, I need to read up :)

Thank you! I try to keep a relatively light downloads folder, but I have tons of content I don't use. And I haven't really cleaned out my hairs in years. I'm afraid of all the lonely and orphaned meshes.

Do look into BaCCs. There's a couple of different rule sets. I play a modified version of the first.

Wow, a baby, an alien pregnancy and a business all in the first week!

I know! I was shocked and pleased. Hans, Linus, and Josef spent most of their time digging for treasure, so that helped a lot.

This family kept me busy! The household I'm working through now is so dull in comparison. I'm glad to finally be playing again!
