Itlandm's Sims

Oct. 30th, 2013 11:52 pm A utopia with glitches



The optional Holo Projector chip lets you invite a friend or close acquaintance from the future to the past or the other way around, as shown in the promotional videos. But it also lets you invite friends from university or tourist destinations! Here is Brittney Lefevre, a tourist from France who I've stayed in touch with. She is supposedly on her last legs, but this is not her ghost - it is a holographic projection that lets her interact with the world of Riverview as if she was physically present, including getting a massage. Advanced Technology indeed! ^_^

sim!Magnus spent some days in the future collecting nanites.



They are small, but with the collection helper they are easy to find. In the evening, the desert has dozens of them. There are many different types, including some that cannot be designed without reverse engineering the original. Nanites are the basic building blocks of future Artificial Intelligence.

Magnus Itland is home from the distant future, and he has brought with him some stuff!

Oct. 25th, 2013 11:59 pm Descendants and desert



At the very edge of the town of Oasis Landing, where a tractor track veers off into the desolate badlands, live the descendants of Magnus Itland. I guess their existence shows that cloning actually works this time around! ^_^
Jamal Itland the bot builder we met in our previous entry. I guess you can kind of imagine that he really is an Itland? Numerous generations down the line, of course.

Oct. 24th, 2013 10:08 pm Sims 3 Into the Future: Advanced Technology



Living in the future is ... different. It is not just the same old stuff with a new skin. There are shops where it is hard to tell the difference between the goods, the employees and the customers. (The Plumbot Emporium.)

A few notes on problems with the game: I had two near showstoppers on the initial quest series after coming to the future. In one, I had to give a plumbot a high-five. However, this option never came up. I clicked on blumbots I had befriended and strangers, but there was no high-five under friendly, special, or even romantic options. I checked on the Net and a few others reported the same problem, and it seemed random what caused it to disappear, when it did. Eventually I found a different article that mentioned the existence of a "mean high-five". Sure enough, I found it in the one category my self-sim would never consider, mean interactions. The plumbot was offended, but I apologized profusely and managed to restore our relationship. I am pretty sure it was not meant to work that way though.

A later quest had me look at the inscriptions on a statue in the memorial park. It also said to use the Almanac of Time, but for me this object is always inactive in the future. I dutifully read the inscriptions on a statue, but nothing happened. It turns out it was one particular statue out of the several scattered around the park. This was not possible to see from the quest text, so others might consider it a bug and drop the quest.

Oct. 22nd, 2013 11:28 pm The future is now! But not here.

Sims 3 Into the Future is out, but only in North America yet. Being the law-abiding Norwegian I am, I have to wait until 24th. So in between watching Into the Future videos on YouTube, I start a new game with teen!magnus, so he can have some basic skills and stuff before the future comes. Making the most of his time and all that. Oh, also updating mods. And not piling hundreds of objects into inventory. Hopefully that will keep the game from breaking down so fast this time.

Oct. 18th, 2013 10:49 pm A little more supernature



Practice's oldest son became a teen and he definitely had inherited his mother's powers along with her skin tone. The hair clearly comes from his father's side though. And no, random onlooker, that's not spiritism. Just the equivalent of a nap for someone from planet Sixon.

Budeie went to college and brought home four lifefruits from a seed Magnus had found during his last season as an arts student. Or more likely second to last, as the long Sim winter intervened. Anyway, it is finally time for ambrosia!

Time flies when you don't have a dozen kids!




Practice Itland has found some friends who look a bit like her. All of them a slightly different shade of green, so she does not really stand out that much.
