Harshire: Year 1 - Summer 1: Othmar  
Photobucket
Here is the first merchant family of Harshire. This is Otto and Melanie Othmar.



Photobucket
Melanie and Otto's house.

Photobucket

Photobucket
They wasted no time in trying out their new couch...

Photobucket
Then Brian and Adara Adalbern stopped by for a quick visit.

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket
Melanie spent much of the evening trying to get Dakota to like her and it finally worked!

Photobucket
This worries me though. I don't think this is normal... :S

Photobucket
Otto and Dakota get along well.

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket
Melanie discovers she is pregnant.

Photobucket

Photobucket
Otto purchased a salon named Luxurious Looks. It's not much yet.

Photobucket
Rocky Troii by maranatah was the first victim. His makeover turned out smashingly.

Photobucket

Photobucket
Otto's shop reached rank one and I used the perk to get money.

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket
Melanie spent her day quietly at home.

Photobucket
While Otto spent his day ruining poor Dorris's (maranatah) life.

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket
But it mustn't have been too bad because his business made it to rank two and he was able to get a solar panel and install some lights. They obviously didn't help him see better and he ruined Nancy's (slyndsey) makeup.

Photobucket
Edwin Neal (eien_herrison) suffers a similar fate.

Photobucket
One of Otto's customers turns out to be his boss's cousin...

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket
Otto really starts to improve.

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket
So he spruces up the store a bit.

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket
Michael Martin (eien_herrison) stops by just in time for...

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket
A boy and a girl named Roy and Ingrid were born to Melanie and Otto. It is at this point that I turned down the odds to 3% for twins, 2% for triplets, and 1% for quadruplets. This is getting a little ridiculous...

Photobucket

Photobucket
Otto's boss has a lot of cousins.

Photobucket

Photobucket
Otto gives Edwin a free makeover to make up for his previous mistake and Edwin is relieved.

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket
The weather in Harshire is horribly hot. Melanie took a nap during the day and woke up with heat stroke.

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket
Dakota really loves Melanie.

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket
Soon enough it was time for Roy's and Ingrid's birthday.

Photobucket
Melanie tries to befriend a stray as a mate for Dakota but once again he leaves JUST as the option to adopt comes up.

Photobucket

Photobucket
Much potty training commences.

Photobucket

Until next time! :)

Again, I have to say that I love how you coordinate the colors with the classes. It's so nice to see the houses and pictures getting brighter as the households are more well off.
Melanie's PT face <3 So cute!

Thank you! I am enjoying that aspect of it as well.
I really like Melanie. I don't ever really make sims with a facial structure like hers.

I'm really enjoying your take on this challenge!

Another set of twins? Roy and Ingrid are just adorable.

Thank you!
I know. I was starting to get annoyed with twins at this point. Hopefully turning down the odds will change things up a bit.

The toddlers are so, so cute (although twins again, yikes). Glad to see that (so far) the merchant families are doing a lot better money-wise, and I'm hoping to see some puppies next rotation (can merchant sims sell/give to poverty class sims? Might be an easy way to give Elizabeth Arash some puppies to raise until she gets her own dogs, or even to use those puppies to help kick-start her own breeding program).

And wow, a fair few of my own sims turned up, guess they like the business/family :)
olivethegreatolivethegreat on August 5th, 2012 06:00 pm (UTC)
Thank you! And yes... yikes! I hope turning down the odds will stop me from only getting multiples.
There aren't any rules about who can sell to who and I think that is a marvelous idea!

I downloaded quite a few of your sims and I have the notownieregen mod in my game so I have a few game generated townies and then a bunch of sims that I downloaded so I am sure your sims will continue to show up in the future. :)

Well, me turning down the odds of multiples has worked so far: only one set of twins born since I changed the odds, and those were forced (kids #9 and #10 for a Family sim with the 10 kids want who was rapidly approaching 'meopause'), so hopefully it'll work for you.

I'd noticed someone downloaded a fair few of my sims, and I wasn't expecting them to show up in your game quite this soon.
