||Happenings day 10:
1:20pm - Vinnie's energy,
bladder, hygiene and fun are all red. Ben has the day off today,
so he will likely die from starvation.
6:55pm - Vinnie asks Ben
for food. Ben says no.
7:15pm - VINNIE TURNS INTO
A CHILD! YEA!
8:45pm - First appearance
of Charles' ghost (pink).
12:03am - CHARLES' GHOST
SCARES BENJAMIN TO DEATH! The game is now essentially over, since
Vinnie is now alone in the house.
2:20am - Charles's ghost
scares Vinnie. He passes out from this. His hunger is completely
red, so if he were an adult, he'd be dead.
4:00am - The social worker
comes to take Vinnie away. Game over.
Comments day 10:
This experiment showed me
just how miserable Sims can get. I just wonder how differently things
would have turned out if someone had cleaned up the burnt omelettes from
the stove, or if I had been allowed to direct them to do that. Once
the stove was unusable, the Sims were unable to keep themselves fed, and
they all died. I don't understand why they all went to the bar to
satisfy their hunger (which it barely did), when there was a grill right
next to it, or they could have made Chef Salad from the fridge.
Well, if there is a sequel
to this, it would have to be with all new Sims from my end because my scenario
ended in tragedy for all 5 Sims involved.
||Happenings day 9:
7:00am - I had Benjamin
call for a nanny, so he could go to work, since that's the only place he
8:40am - Unfortunately,
the nanny arrived after Ben's car pool, so he missed it. This will likely
be his demise. He spends the next several hours mourning Charles.
12:45pm - Vinnie cries over
Annabella's death and he continuously cries about bad hygiene and red aspiration.
4:50pm - Ben tries to make
a drink, but the bar is blocked by Annabella's tombstone. He finds
a way around it and spends the next 12 hours making drinks and mourning
Annabella. His hunger remains at the orange level.
4:50am - Ben finally goes
inside to use the bathroom. He then tries to make an omelette, but
the stove is still unusable. There are now 9 pots of uncooked chili
and 8 pans of uncooked omelettes lying around the kitchen.
Comments day 9:
Today was uneventful.
Fortunately, the nanny fed Vinnie a few times. Otherwise, he would have
been taken by the social worker, because Ben wouldn't feed him.
I don't think Ben is going
to live another day. His hunger is almost red and he's now doing
the "going from bed to bed" thing, where he can't sleep because he is too
hungry but keeps trying to sleep instead of eating.
||Happenings day 8:
10:20am - Charles' work
called. He has missed work 3 days in a row, but has not been fired.
11:15am - Annabella gained
a cooking skill point, which was +1000 aspiration. She is the only
one in green aspiration.
3:15pm - Ben gets home from
work and passes out on the sidewalk.
9:20pm - Vince's ghost finally
makes an appearance.
10:00pm - VINCE'S GHOST
SCARES CHARLES TO DEATH!!!
10:40pm - Charles' death
was -5000 aspiration points for Annabella, so she goes nuts, prompting
a visit from the Therapist. Meanwhile, Benjamin came over and laughed
at Charles' urn.
5:20am - VINCE'S GHOST SCARES
ANNABELLA TO DEATH!!!
Comments day 8:
Wow! Two deaths in
Benjamin is the only adult
still alive. Vinnie (the toddler) is in bad shape. He is in total
red aspiration after Annabella's death. I will be surprised if he
makes it to child before he is taken by the social worker.
Vince's death was apparently
by drowning, since his ghost is leaving puddles everywhere.
||Happenings day 7:
7:20am - Vinnie asks Annabella
for a diaper change. She finally says yes. Whew! His
diaper was dirty for about 2 days.
9:30 - Vinnie keeps following
the adults, but they ignore him, and he keeps crying because no aspirations
are being met. Charles is completely red hunger, fun, social and
hygiene. He is still going from bed to bed trying to sleep.
9:45 - Charles snuggles
11:45 - Vinnie falls asleep
1:30pm - Anna wants to flirt
with Charles, but he ignores her.
5:15 - At death's door,
Charles stuffs face 3 times, prolonging his life. He is now able
10:40 - Ben tosses Vinnie
in the air, and Vinnie pukes on him.
11:10 - Charles apologizes
to Ben, and then slaps him! Ben slaps him back and then cries.
2:00am - Charles kisses
Annabella tenderly. They are now best friends and in love.
He then kisses her again.
2:20 - Charles tries to
make another cooked meal (omelette), but he can't. When is he going
to get those burnt omelettes off of the stove?!
Comments day 7:
Charles kissing Annabella
was a complete surprise, since he was so low on most of his needs.
They are now in love, which is an interesting twist.
This has become an exercise
in human suffering. Vinnie (the toddler) is miserable. Charles
is about to die, and the main living area is horribly dirty. There are
too many uncooked pots of chili and omelettes to count, and no one
will clean them up, not
even the maid. They complain about them incessantly though.
I've learned a lot about
the Sims in the past 7 days:
- Sims will satisfy the
Energy need above all others, even Hunger.
- No Sim will ever clean
up an unprepared meal on their own (i.e. using free will).
- Sims are horrible at satisfying
the Hunger need when the stove is unusable. I have no idea why they
choose to go to the bar to satisfy hunger (which it doesn't), when there
is a grill right next to it! Also, they could easily make a chef
salad or cereal or even have an instant meal, but they don't.
- As long as you feed a
baby/toddler, you can ignore all of its other needs, and the social worker
will not come. It has been so hard to watch this kid suffer. That
has been the worst part of this "experiment".
||Happenings day 6:
9:00am - Charles missed
work. He fed the baby 3 times, but did not change its diaper.
10:00 - Charles tried to
make an omelette, but the stove is still blocked, so he stuffs face.
10:55 - Repo Man!
He took the grill and some flowers. I replaced them.
1:20pm - Charles stuffs
face again twice. This is keeping him alive (barely).
6:30 - Ben and Charles have
spent the whole afternoon in the kitchen mourning. Rizza, complaining that
the baby smells, complaining that Charles smells, and complaining about
the filthy environment. Charles also complains about being hungry
and does the flour sack thing.
9:00 - Charles goes to bed
but can't sleep, too hungry. Hunger, energy and social are all orange.
Hygiene is red. He goes to make drinks.
10:10 - Ben holds Vinnie
and throws him up in the air, and he turns into a toddler! Yea!
Vinnie has one memory - Rizza died.
11:15 - Annabella comes
home from work and mourns Rizza.
11:30 - Vinnie asks Ben
for a diaper change. Ben refuses!
11:50 - Vinnie passes out
on the floor.
12:00am - Ben turns
on the stereo, waking Vinnie.
12:20 - Vinnie asks Annabella
for a diaper change. She refuses also.
1:00 - Vinnie is crawling
all over, freaking out. Energy, bladder and hygiene are all red.
He can't sleep because of the stereo.
1:45 - Vinnie follows Charles
into a bedroom and passes out. At least he can sleep now.
3:25 - Charles is going
from bed to bed trying to sleep, but he is too hungry. He is probably going
Comments day 6:
It was great to see Vinnie
transition from a baby to a toddler. I wasn't sure if he was going
to make it.
Charles looks like he is
a goner. His energy and hunger are very low, so he keeps trying to
sleep instead of eat.
Annabella and Benjamin have
been eating at work, so they're actually doing pretty well on needs, not
on aspirations though.
I wonder if we're ever going
to find out what happened to Vince.
||Happenings day 5:
7:10am - Rizza goes back
to the bar and then stuffs face again. Doesn't help much.
8:50 - Rizza feeds the baby,
even though she is close to death. Nice to see her putting the baby's
9:30 - Both Ben and Charles
try to make omelettes, but the stove is still blocked, so they can't.
11:00 - Rizza goes back
to the bar again. She has red hunger, energy and hygiene. Charles
has red hunger. Ben tries to make chili again. DUH! Not going
to work, Ben!
1:20pm - The maid says everything
is clean, but there are still 3 pots of rancid uncooked chili, the burned
omelettes, and 3 pans of rancid uncooked omelettes lying around.
Charles goes to the bar to have a drink. He has many.
2:20 - Ben feeds the baby
for the 3rd time in an hour. Hello, Ben, the baby needs a diaper
change not a bottle!
3:30 - The baby keeps trying
to sleep, but he can't because the stereo is on.
4:20 - Ben, Charles and
Rizza are now all at the bar. The baby has been crying for 3 hours
5:30 - Charles makes a Chef
Salad! YEA! This probably saves his life.
5:40 - Rizza falls asleep
standing up. Her hunger, bladder, energy and hygiene are all red
now (but not completely empty). She's a goner.
6:30 - Ben makes a Chef
Salad! Go Ben!
7:15 - Charles goes to bed,
leaving the baby crying on the kitchen floor.
8:10 - Ben wets himself.
9:00 - Rizza's hunger, bladder,
energy and hygiene are all completely red now.
10:00 - Ben goes to bed,
leaving the baby crying on the kitchen floor.
10:50 - Rizza wakes up and
11:30 - Rizza dies of starvation!
1:20am - Annabella mourns
for Rizza. She will alternate between that, complaining about the
environment, and worrying about romance for the next 6 hours.
1:50 - Ben turns the stereo
off! Yea! The baby can sleep!
2:10 - Ben mourns for Rizza,
then goes to bed.
3:00 - Charles mourns for
Rizza. He will alternate between that, complaining about the environment,
complaining about his hunger, and talking to the flour sack for the next
Comments day 5:
This day was even worse
than Day 4. I'll be amazed if anyone survives to Day 10. Rizza
is dead. Charles is close to death. The baby has to be close
to being taken away. I would LOVE to see him turn into a toddler
though. It would be a blast to see how these dimwits handled that!
No one is interacting with
each other anymore. It's all about satisfying needs now. Ever
since that fire on the stove, everyone has been starving. It's really
||Happenings day 4:
7:15am - Charles is out
of red aspiration because he gained a cooking skill point.
7:50 - Charles starts a
fire by burning an omelette and immediatly carries the baby to safety.
However, this is -2000 aspiration points for him, causing another visit
by the Sim Shrink.
11:10 - The baby is crying
on the floor with a dirty diaper. Rizza tries to make an omelette,
but the stove is blocked by Charles' burned omelette.
1:00pm - Rizza is starving,
so she goes to the bar and makes 9 drinks in a row. This helps her hunger
2:30 - Rizza tries to make
chili. No dice, the stove is still blocked.
3:15 - Rizza stuffs face
while the baby sleeps on the floor and Charles gardens. This helps her
hunger a little.
4:00 - Rizza makes 17 drinks
in a row at the bar.
6:15 - Benjamin got promoted
to Intern and passed out on the sidewalk, where he would sleep for 6 hours.
7:20 - Rizza goes to bed
for one hour, then wakes up to stuff face again.
10:00 - Rizza tries to make
spaghetti, but the stove is still blocked, so she goes back to the bar.
I didn't bother counting the drinks this time.
11:10 - Annabella gets home
from work and passes out on the sidewalk next to Ben. She slept there
for 5 1/2 hours.
11:55 - Charles pulls out
the flour sack baby again. Uh oh.
12:10am - Rizza tries to
sleep again but can't, too hungry, so she stuffs face again.
2:40 - Charles changes the
baby's diaper (yes!) and hands the baby to Rizza. She has red bladder,
orange hunger and energy.
3:10 - Rizza tries a different
bed, can't sleep, gets up and wets herself. -1000 aspiration points.
Then she tries yet another bed, but still can't sleep.
6:30 - Rizza tried to make
yet another omelette.
Comments day 4:
OK, Rizza is definitely
going to die. No doubt about it. She is starving, but she keeps
trying to make meals that have to be cooked, but the stove is blocked.
If she was smart enough to make a chef salad or cereal, it would save her
life. Hey, Rizza! Clean up the burned omelettes and you might
Also, the maid came but
did not clean up the burned omelettes or any of the uncooked chili and
omelettes, which leads me to believe that the Sims will never clean up
unprepared food using free will.
I will be amazed if the
baby is not taken by social services. He is well fed (overly fed
actually), but he is constantly filthy.
I still have no clue how
Vince died, but with this crew, he probably starved to death.
||Happenings day 3:
10:25am - Charles pulls
out the flour sack baby again. He is doing this constantly now.
1:40pm - Charles flirted
with Annabella. Rizza slapped Charles! Charles fell out of
love with Rizza, then talked to her belly immediately after, then they
played Red Hands (go figure).
3:00 - Rizza cried several
times over Charles cheating on her.
4:45 - Rizza went to bed,
so Annabella seized the opportunity and flirted with Charles. She
now has a crush on him.
11:15 - Charles and Annabella
have been watching TV together for 2 hours. Their relationship is
now at 85/31 and 100/42.
11:25 - Annabella and Benjamin
make out. No one sees them.
1:23am - Rizza has the baby!
It's a boy. I named him Vinnie, since he is obviously Vince's baby.
2:30am - Rizza hands the
baby to Benjamin, so she can talk to Prof. Von Ball.
3:20am - Benjamin hands
the baby back to Rizza, so he can go to bed.
4:15 - Rizza puts the baby
on the floor, which woke Ben up. Then she picked him up again and
fed him a bottle.
5:40 - Rizza puts the baby
on the floor, so she can use the bathroom.
6:45 - Charles holds hands
with Annabella. Rizza and Benjamin are furious! Rizza slaps
Charles. Ben slaps Annabella. The baby is still lying on the
Comments day 3:
It was nice to see those
fireworks at the end of the day! At least now we know it's Vince's
baby, but we seem no closer to finding out how Vince died.
Rizza and Charles are still
in awful shape, especially Rizza, who came close to dying of starvation.
||Happenings day 2:
7:04am - Ben is the first
one up. I replaced the fridge (as instructed).

to make chili just in time to avoid dying from starvation.
2:10 - Annabella goes to
2:30 - Rizza cooks up rancid
omelettes that someone left out in the morning. She will probably get food
3:30 - Charles is in completely
red hygiene, but he decides to read the paper instead of showering.
6:45 - Rizza talks to Prof.
Von Ball again. She will do this 3 more times tonight.
7:10 - Charles talks to
Rizza's belly. I think he thinks the baby is his.
7:20 - Charles pulls out
flour sack baby (family aspiration failure). He will do this 4 more
12:10am - Rizza's belly
popped again. The baby will be born tomorrow!
Comments day 2:
Both Rizza and Charles are
mental cases right now. I don't know how they are going to snap out
of it because none of their aspirations are being met. Ben and Annabella
seem OK. I'm still trying to figure out what happened to Vince.
||Happenings day 1:
At the start, Rizza is in
love with both Charles and Benjamin.
Annabella is in love with
Ben, but Ben only has a crush on her.
Ben is in love with Rizza.
Charles is in love with
Rizza, but he has a negative relationship with her, so he must have caught

12:10 - Annabella finally

1:05 - Rizza starts a fire
while cooking pork chops. This is -2000 aspiration points for both
her and Charles. They both go crazy, so 2 Therapists drop down to
2:20 - Rizza is the last
to go to bed.
Comments day 1:
It looks like Vince was
very important to all 4 of these people. I would love to know how
he died. Rizza's baby is either Vince's or Charles', since her memories
say she woohoo'ed with both of them. We'll find out soon enough.
