Sims Sunday: Is… THIS… Your Card?

First: Funny Graphics Glitch-Of-The-Week!

ufo

“If this is just a clipping error, how come my feet are wet?”

Now on to business. Fern had an uneventful teen stage. (No more teen parties. I couldn’t bear the disappointment.) Once she grew into a young adult, it was time to start her on her career path: Magician!

(You have to say it with Jazz Hands. Magician!)

I decided to make her a cutting edge urban street magician, Criss Angel-style.

ufo

But you gotta start somewhere. And where she started was with basic newbie tricks for her family, in her pajamas.

ufo

This is a trick where you make cards appear in mid-air, mid-toss. I’m sure it’s called “52 Pick-Up.” Worst trick ever.

ufo

“Uh oh, family members are bickering! I’ll distract them with my magic tricks!

ufo

“TADAAAAA hey you guys didn’t watch.”

Next I sent her next door to woo Girbitz. But he got hungry so we had to leave fast before he died.

ufo

Vampires are so tedious that way.

Instead, I had her practice a trick on Girbitz’s live-in girlfriend. Fern just pulled that coin from her ear, and she is STOKED about it!

ufo

I guess I would be, too. Look at the size of that thing!

Then, out of spite, I had Fern use one of her Genie powers to magically banish her from the house.

ufo

We later found her at the park. Ha!

ufo

Which was convenient, because it gave Fern an audience for her “Play For Tips” action.

ufo

After she got tired of playing, she spontaneously went fishing. I’m not sure I’ve ever had a Sim spontaneously start fishing. It was a little unsettling.

ufo

Later that day, I sent her back to Play For Tips again. This time, no one was there. It was pitiful.

ufo

“Tada.”

But at least she got to see a deer!

ufo

BOING.

A SimFest started that afternoon. This is a great opportunity for Sims to gather and get stage experience.

And for this little old lady to rock the purple cat suit. Respeck.

ufo

Fern was allowed to take to the stage. But her dumb little newbie tricks failed her when she got in front of an audience.

ufo

So many people, watching her screw it up!

ufo

Oh my.

ufo

But finally: success!

ufo

Unfortunately, she had already lost the audience’s interest by then, and no one noticed her big finale.

ufo

And then it was back home, to the leaking shower that no one ever gets around to fixing, and the robot nanny that everyone seems to hate.

ufo

By the way, I was planning to change her performing outfit, but it was TOO AWESOME. I didn’t dare change a thing!

  • I’ve had that graphics glitch. It’s weird when it happens while gardening, my sims reach backward to tend their plants and their arms look like they’ve dislocated.

    Also, I’ve discovered that if you let the interactions lag for long enough, a starving vampire will go get a plasma juice or a plasma fruit before dying. You don’t have to leave the property, just go watch television or something. Once they’ve eaten, you have lots of time to interact with them.

    3 times out of 4, yes – but I have had a few vamps die even when I was ignoring them and we were on their lot. Very frustrating! These days, I always err on the side of caution!

  • That performing outfit looks like something out of some kind of crazy anime. All she needs is a tiny little top hat tipped forward on her head. It is a pretty awesome outfit.

  • Awesome is right! And are those spats she’s wearing, or just boots?

  • gabes

    wow that outfit is something king louie meets some redneck suspenders….
