TS4 – Goodbye Rayne, Hello Starting Over…

What a horrible day today…

I’ve spent pretty much all darn day on The Sims 4. I re-built The Rayne Household, which took me so darn long it was ridiculous. I just couldn’t get it right if my life depended on it. Even the finished product is missing a bunch of things…

I’m almost sure that I saved at this point. But my game had been lagging dramatically since I had first started playing. I’m sure I saved…

Then, Thunder had a birthday that went unnoticed. It wasn’t really anyone’s fault. We all knew it was 2 days away and then all of a sudden, it was time to age up. Normally, I get the “birthday in 2 days” notice and bake a cake and get that party started. Somehow, none of that happened.

Maybe it was the fashion show that I decided to make the family have…

All of a sudden, I couldn’t save my game. It just kept saying it was in a state that could not be saved. It was stuck on Thunder aging up and when I tried to fix it, it just made him an adult – but without any of the usual fun that comes with becoming an adult. He was still teenage Thunder, and I couldn’t save the game.

In a very drastic and sudden move, at the idea of losing hours upon hours of gameplay once more, I quickly exited the game, realized how much time I had just lost, and deleted every single save of The Rayne Household.

I’m sick of the glitches and I want to play with all the knowledge I now have about the game, instead of learning it over time during what I think is one of the hardest things in the world to do – play a family over and over and over and over again…

So, today I say “Goodbye Ashton, Walker, Rain, Thunder, Aria and all the Rayne babies that no longer exist” and I say “Hello to a brand new day, this time, in Willow Creek!”…

Drumroll please...

TS4 – Introducing Rain Rayne: My First Spare

After the horribleness that happened, I’ve been saving like a maniac, trying to remember to do it constantly. Because picking up the hours of lost work was a serious pain in the butt. And almost all of the advances I had made in those hours, I could not seem to replicate if my life depended on it.

I lost my first baby, a girl, who would’ve been my heir thanks to the glitch. The Boyfriend and I are constantly fake crying over it – everytime he mentions this baby. After the glitch, my only goal was to get Ashton and Walker to have a baby. It won’t be long before they’re aging up and I don’t want them to get to the point where they can’t give me an heir – because I don’t even know what happens if that happens…

So, she got pregnant again and in about 3 or 4 Sims days, was popping out her first boy (a spare), who she called Rain Rayne.

She’s also built a rocket ship and both her and Walker have gone on multiple space explorations. Ashton also got promoted then demoted and promoted again to a Novelist and Walker is quickly moving up the ranks of his brand new career as a Master Chef. Other than that, the both of them  have been working hard on improving their skills.

Finally, I had mentioned a few post backs that Ashton was finally getting married to Walker (after a long time of trying), and I completely forgot to show off the pictures. Partially because it was a rather terrible wedding – we only got a silver medal and not one of the guests was actually present during the ceremony… Little bit embarassing 😉

* Ashton has only ever WooHooed with Walker, and yet their numbers are completely different here. I’m assuming this is because they WooHooed before he actually became part of her household, so those number wouldn’t be counted. I’m not sure though…
