Spot of Simmery- 2: Bachelor Life

Bachelor life for Enio isn’t super eventful… but it’s also not a bad one. 

There’s the nights of Mac and Cheese dinners…

And since there’s a major reduction of bills for living in a tiny house, I wanted to see how far I could get him on his 3K Simoelons without making him get a job. Skill learning is also sped up as a perk due to having a tiny house, so it seems quite possible.  

While living the single life, I had him work on his gardening (to sell plants) and his programming (to take freelance jobs). 

Despite his low income and living funds, Enio really, really wanted a pool. So I built him a tiny one. 

It was barely big enough to paddle around in, but he was super happy with it. 

He continued to take care of his bee box – which you might notice I moved away from the gardens. The bees were way too hard to keep happy, and often swarmed Enio aggressively when he was trying to harvest and weed the garden. 

He now, smartly, uses protective gear to treat them. 

That’s not to say that bachelor life is a solo affair. In fact, he is often invited out for events…. such as Ghost Night with the vampires (for some reason, vampires really like Enio?). 

And dance parties with Mele, who is the best friend he has at this point. They met on the very first day he moved in, and she has popped up on his doorstep just about every day since. So I guess she finds him agreeable.

But as Love Day comes and goes, the poor guy has an awful holiday being single. He still hasn’t managed to bump into Eva anywhere as Spring turns to Summer. While I could just send him over to her house and force the meeting, I’d rather them connect in the wild. 

And so, single life continues.

Spot of Simmery: Intro

While Final Fantasy has been a series that I’ve played since the original game for the NES, The Sims is another series I’ve played from the start. Even before Sims 1 came out, I played SimCity and a number of other Sim games. So, when Sims released, I was instantly hooked and have been playing ever since. 

In early 2020, I decided to get back into Sims 4, especially after having picked up a number of packs on sale over time. I decided it would be fun to create an Amon Sim (and maybe eventually a Scylla-rival Sim could be fun) and see what trouble he can get into.

I launched the series and wrote a number of post for it, but once the world got crazy and COVID began to really hit, I lost momentum with the project. I’ve decided that I’d like to start it up again, reposting from the beginning! So here we go!

Often, I tend to roll back to the previous generation when I’m focusing on making a particular sim because developing the parents and family first is fun for me. So, I created an Eniopus (Amon’s father) and Eva (Amon’s mother). 

Eniopus is kinda your scruffy inventor-programmer geek guy. 

Eva is your naturalist, and creative-musical type. I also want her to unlock the magic elements of the game. 

How these two ever meshed, I don’t know. But I guess I’ll see if it works out in the Sims!

FFXIV: New Butterfinger Chocorpokkur Mount

If you purchase $5 worth of Butterfinger products, take a photo of the receipt for proof, and send it in at this official website, you can get a unique Chocorpokkur Mount.

Note, these mounts are not account wide, so you’ll have to choose which character gets it. Codes can be exchanged, so you can give them as gifts to friends.

Also note, though it says the receipt has to come from the US, international folks can get a US friend to buy the goods and either send you a picture of the receipt for you to send in, or send it in for you and just give you the code.

I almost didn’t end up picking up one myself – this promotion started last week, and I wasn’t out and about to look for Butterfingers. Mondays are my grocery days, and I do my shopping where my pharmacy is – Target.

This Monday, I searched high and low through Target – both the candy isle and around the checkouts – but found no Butterfingers. I thought this was super strange because… I mean… what place doesn’t carry Butterfingers? When I looked online, it said Target has some in stock at my location. So who knows what happened there.

Yesterday, I had to go to the Wal Mart pharmacy to get my second COVID shot. So, while I was there, I decided to take a look for Butterfingers again. This time, I found some!

I sent in my receipt and got a mail confirming that they got my entry. About 24 hours later, I got another mail with the code for my new mount!

New Primal Server RP Resource

Today, I have a wonderful surprise!

I was contacted by Edda of White who is the owner and curator of Edda’s Housing/Venue Encyclopedia for Primal – an extremely valuable RP resource for the Primal Data Center. While I don’t feel comfortable just adding entries to the Directory without the owners sending a Submission (I take that as giving permission to use the information), was was overjoyed to have Edda’s permission to link to this resource in the NA Data Center section of the Directory!

If you’re listed in Edda’s resource, you’re more than welcome to Submit here, too! Also know that I’m absolutely happy to link to existing resources like this one to share them around. Anything to help people find each other more easily!
