Hello! The title should be taken very, very literally. My computer crashed so I had to reset to factory settings, and I lost both Ferby and the save file to said crash. So I did what any insane person did: once I got my sims back installed, I remade Ferby using what pictures I had left, and made a new save file. This is fine.
I was so pissed off, however, I just skipped over Ferby’s week long escapade into the future to get Kel.
In case you forgot, this is Kel, the founder’s wife. She is a handy, flirty, artistic virtuoso who is also a hopeless romantic. Her lifetime wish is Perfect Mind, Perfect Body which means she has to master both the logic and athletic skills. Her favorites are waffles, lilac, and Latin.
And this is Ferby 2.0. I tried to get him as close to Ferby 1.0 as I could, but the more I look at him, the more discrepancies I see. Oh well. He is an over-emotional, dramatic, genius who is also a family-oriented bot fan. His favorites are blue, hamburgers, and electronica. The only thing I changed about him was his lifetime wish: It’s now More than a Machine, which means he has to master the bot-building skill and give a plumbot sentience.
On my second playthrough of this damn save file, I figured out the “Check Lotto Records” trick. Also I’m surprised it worked with Kel, since she’s a “future resident” and all.
Kel: Moneyyyy 😀 I’m giving none of this to charity 😀
That money is actually going to finance a decent house, which is slightly better.
We’ll start off with – KEL WTF WHY ARE YOU STANDING IN THE STREET ???
Kel: Wealth has changed me. I want to die. Also this legacy thing is stupid and I want no part in it.
Too 🙂 bad 🙂
Okay so – AGAIN KEL ??
Kel: Lalalalala just gonna impale myself on this mailbox.
MOVING ON, HOW ABOUT A HOUSE TOUR ?
Here’s a pretty good side view of the property.
The front of the main house, which I’ve dubbed “The Compound.”
(Excuse the blurry spot on the left side, floating shards of graphical error I had to edit out)
The upper door opens to the combined kitchen/dining room/living room/study. Here’s the kitchen+dining area, with included indoor plant jungle. Basically, my inspiration for this house was “what would a futuristic underground bunker look like?” along with “everything ITF” and “batshit crazy experimental decorating.”
Here’s the study area, complete with a holographic computer and a surrealistic painting of melting houses.
The living area (also with a holographic TV) which I describe as “therapist’s waiting room meets abstract rug techniques,” which I assume would also double as a Rorschach test.
Also on the first floor is this pathetic excuse of a bathroom, cuz I’m not good at floor plans.
The spiral staircase leads to this hallway, or “I had no freaking clue how to utilize this space so here’s a beige sofa and rustic animal signs suburban moms buy and sell on Etsy.”
Also on this floor is the nursery, complete with a fire pole for easy diaper-changing access. (Also note the ceiling tile glitches. I figured out that a floating ceiling tile was what was causing the glitch earlier, too. So yay, I got that fixed.)
And the upstairs bathroom, which I hate slightly less than the first floor one.
There are other cells small rooms on the second floor, for when Kel and Ferby reproduce tiny lab experiments have children, so for now they’re undecorated.
The master bedroom, complete with Kelby (yes, I have decided that’s their ship name) sleeping in their bed.
The master bathroom, which I think is my favorite of the rooms.
And jumping back down is the basement, including a bot workshop for Ferby and a gym for Kel. There’s also a small charging room for Ferby’s future plumbot(s) and a bathroom, but I couldn’t get a decent picture.
And finally, the backyard, which was a result of me going “oh my God what do I do with all this extra space” and “how bad can I be at landscaping, really?” (answer: lol I suck)
Now back to our regularly scheduled programming ~
Ferby: I’m … starving…. I see …… a bright light …. Grandma …… is that you ?
Turn around, you big baby. Your wife made food.
Kel: Our Creator is a stupid, stupid woman.
Ferby: Yep. She’s gonna fail again, isn’t she?
….. no comment ….
Ferby: I mean, I’d rather be in a catatonic, vegetative state than do this legacy thing for a second time.
😡 I’m going to chalk that up to you being a drama queen.
Kel: *already planning to make toast in the bathtub*
The more I have her in my game, the more I see Kel as a wine mom.
I mean, just look at her dead eyes.
Ferby: Honey, are you okay? Honey? Honey? …… I’m just gonna hope you’re tired.
I don’t know why this screenshot cracks me up so much, but it does.
Kel: I can see the future! Oh wait, I’m still miserable.
Ferby: *wishing I would have let him marry Fawn Lacey the second time around*
And this hideously deformed, patchy skinned creature means that generation 2 is on its way.
Ferby: Dang’gum kids, git awf my lawn!
Also, future omen? (Lawl of course it is)
Kel: *exercises so hard she breaks her wrist*
Kel: *tries to climb treadmill while aggressively singing “Eye of the Tiger” to drown out obnoxious kids’ music*
Ferby: My wife ?? Listening to kids’ music ?? While exercising ?? Suspicious… *intense side eye*
Ferby: To master the botbuilding skill, you must become one with the holographic age. *shoves hand through holographic keyboard*
Kel: This is what happens when you exercise, kids!
More like a “practice safe sex” lesson, but whatever.
Ferby: Our Creator isn’t the brightest lightbulb in the pack.
Kel: *person-person plus*
Ferby: I lurve my wifey ❤
I love Kel’s face in this picture so much.
Kel: You want… sum fuk?
(I truly apologize; that’s all I can think of when I look at this.)
Kel: Oh no! Where did my wedding ring go?
Ferby: Yeah, we have like 90 dollars in the bank, but I can get you a picture of one.
Actually, I’m just too lazy to put wedding rings on them after they get married.
This is purely to show how cute the two of them are together.
Ferby: oh my gosh where is my ring ?? I demand you find my wedding ring !!
We just went over this, you complainer.
Kel: Nooboo ❤
As if I hadn’t hinted at it enough, the second generation is on its way!
Ferby: I FOUND THE LOCHNESS MONST – oh wait, that’s Jon Lessen’s chimney.
Kel: *hacker in a police drama voice* I’m in.
The couple that skills together…
I didn’t think we’ve reached THAT point in the legacy, but apparently we have…
Apparently sims can get burnt from bot building. Who knew?
Ferby: *internal screaming*
Ferby: AAH THE ROBO BUGS ARE UNDER MY SKIN!!
Ferby’s clearly enjoying his LTW.
Brief intermission to show Kel is working toward becoming this generation’s portrait painter. Moving on!
Ferby: I’m not talking to you unless you’re Slimy Sam.
.. who’s Slimy Sam ?
Ferby: The prospector gnome who tells me where to find gold.
Ferby: He helped me after I got electromacuted.
That explains it.
Ferby: GUHBBA WUOBBY OUF LESBA FIJAF
… aaaaand my founder has officially lost his mind.
Ferby: Treat yo’ self.
AAAH IM SO EXCITED !!!
Ferby: Hey, Creator? DAFUQ IS GOING ON??
So Kel hops in her fancy future car, and drives her and the baby/babies coming out of her uterus to the hospital.
Where is the loving father, you ask?
At home. Reading a book. Y’know, as you do, when your wife is in labor.
Ferby: So THAT’S how you fix a leaky pipe!
The first baby of generation two is here!! This little girl is Nova Metzkerp. The naming theme for this generation is futuristic names, which I took to mean “any scientific-y term that could possibly be a name.” Her traits are Excitable (I think ?) and Disciplined. I didn’t write down her favorites, but I know she’s an Aquarius.
And this little boy is Kelvin Metzkerp!! The Kelvin scale is a measure of temperature in astronomy. His traits are perceptive and grumpy (I think ?). I also don’t remember his favorites, but he is also an Aquarius.
(And yes, Ferby eventually did make it to the hospital.)
And that’s all for this chapter! I have the screenshots ready for next chapter so expect that soon. : ) See you guys!!
