This week snagged a copy of the Seasons expansion pack for half price at Target. Yay! Then I turned around and used the money I saved to buy the new Monte Vista town.
Seasons is the first expansion pack that doesn’t come with a new town, you see. And while I would not have bought it if I had paid full price for Seasons, I am very glad to have it. I was really getting tired of Moonlight Falls, not least because it looks exactly like where I live. Boring!
First I had to hop into the old town and pack everything up for Logan’s move. As I did that, Kitty – who was quite a senior feline at this point – died. Here he is being snuggled by the Grim Reaper. Sad!
Monte Vista is a small Italian-style village. Most of the village is situated up on a hill, encircled by an ancient stone wall.
I started by buying Logan a small bachelor pad near the central town square.
For reasons known only to the game developers, this small stucco home includes two pets: Salvatore (a catfish) and Bryan (a rainbow trout).
We arrived at the beginning of summer. Temperatures were in the 80s already, and it was barely 8AM. Obviously Logan couldn’t go wandering around in a wacky sweater.
(Side note: I swooned when I saw those new “sunrise” lighting effects!)
He needed something more seasonally appropriate.
Now it was time to meet the townspeople.
Logan I told you to change into your summer clothes! But we got distracted by this handsome fellow, who had great chemistry with Logan. Rrrowr! Too bad he’s married with a kid. Boo.
There ya go! Get into the spirit of summer!
After a day spent meeting people in the plaza, Logan had received the “Tanned” moodlet, and had transformed into a golden skin tone reminiscent of a rotisserie chicken.
Across the plaza I found a magic totem pole. Werewolves can petition the pole for something called “Hunter’s Storm.” Obviously I did this immediately.
It started snowing! Soon the temperature had dropped from 87 to only 12 degrees, and the snow was falling fast. LOVE. IT.
Apparently the idea is that werewolves can have better luck hunting valuables while the storm is active. But who cares? It’s MAGIC SNOW IN THE MIDDLE OF SUMMER. Don’t waste it chasing rocks!
As the snow continued to fall and day turned to night, Logan finally met someone who was both interested in him AND single.
This is Emma Perry, and she wears sunglasses at night AND in the snow. She is that cool.
By dawn the storm had ended, the snow had melted, and Logan and Emma kissed beside one of the stone doorways to the countryside.
