Generation 6.1

Hello Lucky Palms! The Cartwrights have once again pulled up roots and moved due to trying to play them on a small lot in Island Paradise. My opinion is that world is not made for old multigenerational families.

This is also the home of Jacob Domingo, Werewolf Extraordinaire.  Perhaps they will meet!

This is where I am going to scratch build the Cartwright home.  It is a 40X40 lot right in the middle of town, and close to everything.  I found a nice four bedroom floorplan online labeled 'the Florida'.  thought it would fit right in with Lucky Palms.

Before moving, all the Cartwright tombstones were moved to the family inventory.   Then the 'household only' was moved, leaving everything behind.  All the gems, fish, seeds. Everything.   Hope this gives more of a 'fresh' start, as the game no longer gave platinum headstones to Sim who had met their LTW.  I noticed when I placed the Cartwright tombstones in Luck Palms, Gene Cartwright's tombstone indicated he died by fire, which was not true.  So the deaths are borked.  I hope this helps.  ( I figured with another werewolf in the house, the shortage of precious gems wouldn't matter anyway).

Spent hours building the house...I don't like to build.  I want to get right to playing.  The Cartwrights moved in during the middle of the night.

Daytime view.  :)  As time goes on, more landscaping may be added; gonna try this for a while to see how my machine handles this large lot.  I generally stick to smaller lots for smoother play.

Doesn't Deangelo look determined?  As soon as he woke up on the full moon day, he turned into his werewolf form.

He then traveled to the park where the summer festival was in full swing.  Jacob had much success here.  The same thing happened to Deangelo that happened to Jacob.  A whack on the head with a newspaper.

Oh who is this?  It is Richard Irwin, who happened to be wondering about the park.  The two werewolves compare fangs.  Deangelo compared his fangs to Richards, and asked him to join his pack.  He then had his first hunt with a pack.  Netted some bugs.

Being a full moon night Daria went outside and howled at the moon.  The werewolf children are cute.  heh

Deangelo finds the unicorn one night when he thought to go out and bite 5 people in one outing.  He had a pocket full of apples from the Cartwright home in Island Paradise, and started to make quick friends.  Oh but then what happened....

He suddenly turned to his human form, and had his birthday to adult.  Lightening the Unicorn was thinking of no one but himself and backed off the weird human/werewolf.  Deangelo went home, thinking to go out again another evening.

The next night Deangelo was out biting.


And he met up with Darren Dreamer, who no longer had fish scale legs.   The game shows the bite 'took'.  By now, Deangelo had 5 successful cursed bites toward his LTW.

Who is this sauve looking guy?  Why it is Jacob Domingo.  Looking quite debonaire.

The same evening, Alec decided he had worked enough, picked up the phone and retired from telling fortunes.  Unfortunately, right at that moment Grim came for him.  He was 92.

Marion Cartwright was out haunting and witnessed the spectacle, along with Penney.  I have never seen a ghost react to a Grim party for another Sim.

No platinum headstone.  Ah well.  However he contributed alot to the Completion Challenge.

Not to shabby.

Deangelo was on a biting spree and decided to bite the mother of the Cartwright clan, Kaylynn Langerak.  Apparently it was successful. This will be interesting.

The day after their grandfather's passing, was the twin's birthday.  Although people were called to come and celebrate, no one came as there was a pool party going on across the street at the Hendrix house.  No one knows the Cartwrights in Lucky Palms, at least not well enough to come to their kids' birthday party.

Damen picked up the Dog Person trait.

Daria picked up Absent Minded  (oh great).

Now Penney was able to go back to work as a lifeguard.  Knowing no one would come to the beach in the rain, Penney turned it off with the lifetime happiness reward.

Deangelo came to the beach every day with her to meet up with other werewolves.  Occasionally he was able to persuade them to form a pack with him and they would go hunting.  Jacob Domingo was always willing to hunt with him.

Being a good werewolf father, he brought his cubs..errrr...children to the cemetery during a full moon to do homework and to fish. 

Sometimes the whole family came to the beach with Penney.  Damen the werewolf boy who also had the 'dog person' trait was especially attractive to a little kitty who wouldn't leave him alone....No action going Sims ever needed to be saved.  After three days ASimWen became suspicious.  A test Sim was made and plunked down into Lucky Palms with the same LTW.  Sent this test sim to the beach every other day to lifeguard.  No.  No Sim every went into drown mode.  A few needed CPR, but those don't count for the Seaside Savior LTW.

So ASimWen realized that Penney's LTW of Seaside Savior was unattainable in Lucky Palms.  Penney Cartwright was nearing elderhood, and had racked up 4 points toward the Completion Challenge.  If she didn't reach her LTW her points wouldn't count.  What to do, what to do.

OOohhh. Penney.

Soooo Penney needed a new LTW, and needed her age set back.  *sigh*  To what length should ASimWen go for four points???

Penney doesn't have enough lifetime points to purchase the Young Again reward, so she gets the Change Lifetime Wish.

She chooses Alchemy Artisan.  Yes, there has already been one of these in the Cartwright family.  This guarantees she can use all her time making potions.  Oh yes....and her werewolf husband can hunt for items she needs to make potions.

Oh Penney....her friend Naomi Nita died.  Naomi was also friends with Jacob Domingo.

Alright then.  With all the beach drama, the photographer didn't take many pictures of Daria and Damen during their childhood years.  Teenager hood is here.  Damen looks angry all the time...

Daria grew up into the female werewolf hair.  Heh  This generation has moved away from the blond hair blue eyes in the Cartwright family tree.

And this is a good place to end this chapter of the Cartwrights.

Will Penney meet her LTW?
Will Deangelo manage to form a  wolf pack with his kids and go hunting?
Will the kids like being werewolves???

Ha.  All this and more will be answered in the next Cartwright chapter.

Thanks for reading!  Keep on Simmin'!



  1. i don't play the sims 3 but it is nice to see everything that goes on, in their little world.

    1. I am having fun with them. And like any good simmer when I need a break I go to a different game. In this case, it is TS2! :) Thanks for reading about the Cartwrights.

  2. Sorry to hear you're still having problems with the Cartwrights. Hope you can get them worked out. Do you plan to stay in Lucky Palms and just try to make the best of it?

    1. I plan to stay in Lucky Palms as long as possible, I really like playing there. I am really liking the house too, next update will show a surprise with the lot.
