3.7- School Potatoes

Welcome back to the Moonwisp ISBI Alphabetcy! Last time, the quadruplets became teens and Cole made it one step closer to his long-life dream of being a chess legend.

Naturally, everyone’s diet is made of cake and only cake.

Daryl couldn’t be happier.

More teens means they all need to learn how to drive.
Screenshot-104
Starting with Daisha, who has been in her PJ’s ever since aging up.

Better.
Screenshot-105
Daisha: I’m a snake.

Meanwhile, it’s the daily clusterfuck at the school door.
Screenshot-109
Hey there Samali! (Only teacher in the whole school)

There is not much to spy, most people are related or too young.
Screenshot-107
There’s always Jerald, Dalyra’s good friend.

Apparently Jerald has a brother.
Screenshot-108
Can’t you guys have some sisters too?

Because we got an awful lot of guys back home.
Screenshot-111
Like Drake, who interrupts his beauty sleep to wander off downstairs.

To stop in front of the toy oven…
Screenshot-112
Drake: Damn it. I’m too old for this now. Why did I miss my chance?

Who wants cupcakes anyway when there’s an endless supply of cake?
Screenshot-113
Damien sure doesn’t mind.

In no time, Daisha can now drive on her own.
Screenshot-118
Daisha: Like a boss.

Those are the two cars the family has.
Screenshot-114
The black and white one went missing so Cole had to buy another one with his points to replace it…

There is still time today for more driving lessons.
Screenshot-115
Damien: Your heart is right there. Exposed, easy to pierce.

Why is everyone looking at Cole?
Screenshot-116
Cole: Stop goofing around, like. You got to learn too.

This cruelly satisfied smile though, Cole.
Screenshot-120
Damien: Hell, driving suuuuucks!

Gobias passed away.
Screenshot-117.3
His second son is now rich, since he had a favorite.

Duncan likes to go around in his bathing suit.
Screenshot-117
This has brought to my attention that he has no nipples. No. Nipples.

Insulted, he decides to take a trip to space.
Screenshot-119
Not my fault your skin has nipples but you chose not to!

So, did they attach you some nipples?
Screenshot-121
Duncan: No, piss off.

The next morning, all the kids are at school and Cole’s opponent is working, so he has to find something else to do. Upgrading the stove it is.
Screenshot-123
Bobbi: At first I was afraid, I was pretty fried, kelp thinking I could never cook without you as my side…

I got a mod for cat eyes, got tired of them looking so dead in the eyes.
Screenshot-125

Cole’s opponent, Jamie Jolina, is done working.
Screenshot-128
Sadly he lost and will have to try again the next day. Dr Jolina has a busy schedule.

Cole still has very important questions for his kids.
Screenshot-129
Cole: Do you like your ice cream, like, in a cone or in a bowl?

Drake: In a cone, I guess?
Screenshot-129.2

Then it’s time for him to learn how to drive.
Screenshot-131
Cole: Hey, like, wait up!!

Going around town, we find the black and white car that was lost…
Screenshot-135
Apparently it was bugged there.

Dante finished a painting.
Screenshot-132
Dante: I uh…this isn’t what I had in mind when I started it…

Daenerys is enjoying the hot tub in her grandparents’ bedroom.
Screenshot-133
Daenerys: That’s the life of a Queen, oh yes.

Damien jumped on the easel as soon as Dante left it, only to be interrupted by his mother.
Screenshot-134
Bobbi: Scrap the art, Drew, muscles is what gets the girls.

Dalyra is still practicing the piano.
Screenshot-136
Luring everyone into being inactive to listen to her melodies.

Even Drake is enjoying it.
Screenshot-137
Drake: Me? Enjoy stuff? No way, I was uh…

Duncan is…swimming fully clothed.
Screenshot-138
Duncan: Might as well use this to wash my clothes, less wasting water. #environment

Those two are doing their homework.
Screenshot-139
At least Dante found a chair.

It’s time for round two for Cole and Jamie.
Screenshot-140
With the papparazzi making sure to capture this epic moment.

Duncan: *Gasp*
Screenshot-141
Cole lost again.

Duncan: I had bet all my week’s chores on his win, I better start working on it then.
Screenshot-142
Betting? So you like to gamble?

To let off some of the stress, Cole takes care of his potatoes.
Screenshot-143
Still hasn’t found the lost potato chip.

The next morning, all the teens get up in unison.
Screenshot-144
Which is kind of creepy in a way.

While they’re all off to school, it leaves only those two for a birthday celebration.
Screenshot-145
Cole is so very thrilled.

Daryl makes his wish to see space one day.
Screenshot-146
Cole: OMG, like, get on with it already.

Sparkles time!
Screenshot-147
Ignorance is bliss, right?

Cole is so very bored, and Daryl is a lot less cute.
Screenshot-148
He rolled Family-Oriented. Bad idea, Daryl, you’re too dumb to correctly raise kids.

Even Cole tried his hardest and the game seems to work against him.
Screenshot-149
Dalyra: I can’t get to school in time, too many people.

She finally manages to go in.
Screenshot-150
Damien and Daisha are still waiting, however.

Finally all the Moonwisps are in.
Screenshot-152
There is still quite a lot of people though.

Drake comes out at the end of school.
Screenshot-153
Other kids are still getting in.

Daryl is home from his first driving lesson, from which he learns veeeeery slowly.
Screenshot-168
Cole is on round three with Jamie.

Daryl works on being useful.
Screenshot-169
Except, Daryl, you’re not up for heirship, so you could be a total jerk and it would be fine too.

Cole WINS!
Screenshot-170
And with that he completes his LTW by getting to rank five of ranked chess match!

Screenshot-169.2
Congratulations, Cole.

While Jamie was hard to beat, she wasn’t distracted during matches, so those two get to be friends.
Screenshot-171
Cole had a wish to make her his good friend too.

Once that is done, back to giving some weird attention to his kids.
Screenshot-173
Cole: Like, creamy or traditional?

Screenshot-173.2
I suppose that would be traditional?

So Bobbi randomly rolled this.
Screenshot-174.2
No Bobbi, HELL NO!

To try and take care of the school issue, I dropped a second school.
Screenshot-174
I also made the base school be ground level, to avoid stairs routing fails.

Speaking of fails, Cole still has this locked in.
Screenshot-176.2
However, I’m pretty sure its already done.

Cole can’t teach him.
Screenshot-176
And here’s Drake driving on his own to school…

Kids at school, garden tended, wife at work, Lifetime Wish achieved, what is left?
Screenshot-177
Right, making sure we don’t lose the cats.

Lets get the stuff down.
Screenshot-178
Cole: Chicken breast or chicken leg, like, any?

Screenshot-178.2

So far, all straight, only Damien left.
Screenshot-179
Damien: Dad, don’t talk, I like my coffee black.

Screenshot-179.2
Well okay then, what are the odds? 7/7 are straight.

Just out of curiosity, Cole asks Daryl too.
Screenshot-180
Cole: Do you put, like, ketchup on your poutine?

Screenshot-180.2
Daryl: What’s poutine?

Now that it’s settled, Dalyra goes back to plotting world domination via piano.
Screenshot-182
Damien: No-one can dominate those dance moves. *caresses leg*

Okay then… Now that we know we need more female options in this town, it’s time to end it on this note. Next time, more driving lessons, and a boring Costume party! And other stuff too!

    Ugh, I hate the clusterfuck at the school, so annoying! I solved mine by putting in the Careers-School mod, which allows kids to go to specialised schools at the job rabbitholes. It helps some, but not that much. Have heard about a mod on MTS that puts in more doors, but haven’t tried it myself.

    Wow, 7/7 all straight? That never happens in my games! Maybe we need some fresh blood in town, don’t want to start inbreeding just yet 😛

      Mayhaps I’ll have to drop Frank in there and hope he makes babies for future generations.
      I kind of solved my school problem, but it’s still not perfect. Now the kids stand a chance at not having bad grades at least.

    I totally hate the school routing failure. Especially in Sunset Valley with the stairs at the school. Luckily, in my two current games it hasn’t become a problem.. yet. I’m not holding my breath, though. It’s bound to happen eventually.

      That’s why I bulldozed the school and remade the lot completely flat, haha! Plus a second school. Set one for teenagers, one for children. It’s not perfect, but it helps.
