Robin was getting pretty good at this “living in the future” stuff. He even took well to the hoverboard.
As part of his quest chain, he finally gathered and assembled all the pieces for the key that unlocks the door of the crashed alien space ship in the wastelands.
We wandered around and took stuff, because that is what you do as an adventurer in The Sims 3: wander around and take stuff.
I don’t know what that thing is, but we took it.
Then we came to a large room with a video screen.
OH MY GOD IS THIS A SCIENTOLOGY JOKE????
You be the judge.
Speaking of books, Robin spent a lot of time in his room at the community center working on his novels.
At least he has a nice view!
Then the game gave me the pop-up notice that Robin would be turning into an old man in two days. I decided it was time to send him back to the present.
Back home, it was fall, which meant that the garden had gone dormant. Since Torgo’s job was gardening, and he doesn’t have any other skills, I bought them a chicken coop and a beehive to keep him busy and earning money for the family.
And fishing in the rain.
Uh oh, he made the bees mad.
Whenever this happens, it always reminds me of one of my all-time favorite gifs:
There are a lot of sci fi references with this expansion pack. I keep finding more. For example, behind Torgo is the Tannhauser Gate floor lamp.
And this is the Tears in Rain pendant lamp.
Summer is becoming quite adept at painting. (Is that a glowing roast turkey, or am I just hungry?)
She’s also studying up on chess, while her little brother Seven plays with his toy space ship.
(Did I mention they had another baby? I think I might have forgotten to.)
Shanita, the little flirt, keeps hitting on Torgo. But he isn’t digging it. I don’t know why.
And finally it was time for Robin’s birthday.
Sorry dude, everyone has to get old eventually.
And to cap off his terrible birthday, the washing machine broke.
