The Towns of Appaloosa

Alright, now that I’ve gotten a feel for Pets out of the way, let’s actually do something with the Seckies.

But before that, let’s backtrack a little bit, before the whole Appaloosa and Bloaty, and go back to Sunset, where it all started after Pets was installed.

“Did you hear, Tater?!  New EP, with animals!  I’m going to be a DOG now!  Woof woof! *Destroys lower lip*”

“._. That’s… cool to hear Mr. Pilot Inspektor sir…”

“Oh hey, Tater.  I didn’t think you were going to come over so soon, I didn’t even get to take a shower yet!  I just got done crawling out of the sewage tank because Pilot made me check for butt-grabbing latino skeletons…  Hey, you look a little sad.  Is the death of your sister actually getting to you, Tater?”

“No, but it gawt to my papa.  He doesn’t wanna live in a hawse any more wid’ the glitches that killed mah sistur… Luther, papa’s makin’ us move to a new town!”

“Oh no!  Say it isn’t so, Tater!”

“Yeah… several states away too, ‘n papa says we ain’t ever comin’ back to this place… I don’t think I’m ever gonna see you again Luther!  Wut am I gonna do wid’out yew?!”

“What I want you to do is to remember me fondly, Tater.”

“…Luther!”

“Well, we had a good run, didn’t we?  But you are getting out of this dying crap town, a town that even a working Twallan’s mod isn’t going to save, and you are going to meet new people, cool western people, pretty people…  I’m going to be stuck taking care of Pilot until he’s 150 at this rate, but you… you go have fun, ok?”

“Oh Luther!  Ur the best damn boyfrien’ I’m ever gonna have!  I don’t wanna have to leave yew like this!”

“Come on now, cheer up.  I’m positive that we are going to see each other again one day…”

And of course, the ice cream truck decided to photobomb a very serious moment…

“I got you some ice cream… Lt. Dan, ICE CREAM

Apparently ice cream can fix depression, because Tater forgot why he was even sad five seconds later.

This is when shit started getting bad.  Everything was all hunky dory for a while, and then my computer said, “OH, you are actually having fun?!  RAGIKWGJEIWKJALSDKGFJK” and Sunset was just horrible to even try to work.

Back at the house, I had Mt. Dew a little funeral all set up and ready for guests to be invited to (I don’t even think her boyfriend Mack even noticed her dead) but after several crashes, glitches, and other anger inducing shit, I packed the important stuff into the inventories, let Pat fall into a couple of holes, packed the sims worth keeping into the sim bin (and almost didn’t even get to do that, the game wasn’t going to let them go without a fight), and moved the family to Appaloosa Plains.

Ah, the clean fresh smell of a clean slate in an unfamiliar yard at four in the morning.  Welcome home guys!

This is the part where Bloaty’s story basically takes place.  I think we are all caught up now.

“So great, a new “friend” for you to ignore me to, Bear?  And here I thought we were just starting to like each other again!”

Tallahassee?  You’re alive?  How?!

“Along the way here, I sacrificed all the graves of everyone this family loves, ALONG with that Opal girl.  And now Bear will be mine, ALL MINE!”

Yes, all the graves went POOP because I got really tired of them glitching and lagging and “OMG A GHOST NOOO”ing my sims.  Which really is heartbreaking because now Tater isn’t the only one that lost his relationship.  I still feel better though.

“Aw, lookit’ yew!  Wut a cute little guy!”

“WTF LET GO, OH HELL HE’S CRUSHING MY NOSE, SOMEONE SAVE ME HE’S CRUSHING MY NOSE!”

Eventually the raccoon bit Nascar, and for that to be effective, he probably took off with a finger case or something.

While Nascar welds on a replacement, here’s Dale doing something very ungangsta.

“Wut?!  He’s cute.”

“… Why are they all starein’ at me?”

Being the new kid and all?  Actually, half of those guys I put in the town myself.

I haven’t actually counted, but I think Appaloosa has the smallest population of any town I’ve played.  Either that or they haven’t all come out of the woodwork yet.

Haha, Starla!  What happened to you?!  You looked just fine when I moved you from Sunset!

“Don’t ask, just fix.”

Ok ._.

“Ah, a football field (actually I don’t think those are football markings, but if I tell Dale that, he might shit a brick loaded argument)  If mama wus alive to see this gawgous’ thing, she’d be in hog heaven.”

Ah yes, Virginia.  Still chillin’ at the Sunset bistro too by the way.  Good times.

“Hey sweetheart.  Long time no see, how’s the invisable toy husband ‘n those boys a’ urs?”

“Whoa papa!  Yew actually remember who I am?!  No way!  But wut ’bout mama ‘n Ronda?  Can ya remember those?”

“Who?  Well yeah, I remembur ur sister Ronda, ‘n ur brother Pat, ‘n havin’ to spawn them all by mahself.  Don’t know wut ur goin’ on ’bout a mama…”

“But yew should catch up wid’ ur nephew!  That Tater boy, he’s a gud kid ya know!  Mah poor son’s only kid, really gonna be a apple of mah eye, cuz I know that Bear boy ain’t nothin’ to me…”

“Um, papa?  Wut ’bout Mt. Dew?  The other child of Pat?  The one you buried in Sunset ‘n the whole reason yew left that town in the first place?”

“Wut? Mt. Dew?  I think we have sum in the fridge back at the hawse…”

So the family can recognize relatives from the bin, but can’t remember the dead at all.  It’s a little sad.

“Hurrr, I found da leaf!  I are da so smart!”

Oh dear.

“Now there’s you a man right there, Tater!  Tall dark and handsome, and he looks like he still has all his teeth!  What do you say?!”

“Huh, wut?  I have no idea wut ur talkin’ ’bout…”

No, VJ.  We aren’t setting up Tater to men twice his age, no matter how sexy you find them… seeing as you and Lee have been ‘fighting on the sidewalk’ since Bloaty left the house.

“But wut ’bout that guy, the really tiny one next to ur neck!  I think he’s in mah PEES class!  He’s kinda cute!”

“What?”

I’ve been trying to spend time with the pets, I really have.  But this is what Lynyard and Cletus spend all their time doing.  SLEEPING.  I got the laziest pair of animals ever.  Kinda like their owners.

Sigh, he’s just like Carl.

And Lynyard.  If Pat’s toddler form could have a reincarnation, Lynyard would be that reincarnation.

“Cletus!  It’s been FOUR MINUTES since we sniffed each other!  I’m so LONELY, I’m going to call the adoption center back if you don’t come LOVE ME”

The boys interacting with the pets.  Just because I think this is such a cute moment.

And then Cletus had to ruin it by hiking up on Bear >:I

“Heh heh, ‘n it’s funneh cuz he’s all water, ‘n that means it’s only gonna take a few seconds fur my pee to travel up to his mouth…”

“So you know my brother Bear, right?  He ain’t comin’ to school today, he’s tryina’ vomit up pee.”

“Um… I didn’t even know you were brothers.  You know, with him being a ghost and you being… not ghost.  Is he your step brother or something?”

“Well, papa’s a hundred percent sure Bear’s his kin, but the thing is, mama has a thing ’bout jumpin’ on anythin’ wid a wanker.  Wut I think is wen that Shark guy was stayin’ wid us, he ‘n mama gawt together ‘n… *slaps hands together*”

“Oh mah gawd that’s vulgar…”

“CRUZ.  You are too high class to be listening to this trash.  It’s time for you to go home and stop hanging out with this little hillbilly moonshiner.”

“Yes mother.”

And so Tater never saw Cruz again because MY COMPUTER SHOWED ITS ASS AGAIN. BIG TIME.

Like, SO BIG, that none of my past fixes were working, and in a mad attempt to salvage what I can, the following happened.

“Where are we?”

New Appaloosa.  The old one was so corrupted and flunky that it was a miracle that I managed to bin you.  AGAIN.

“‘N why are we so blocky and why’s the grass all slick?”

I tried lowering the graphics to fix the problems we were dealing with.  It didn’t even work.  And I never got around to putting it back before playing.

“‘N WHERE’S MAH HAT?!”

Oh dear, I must have accidentally deleted it throwing out some bad CC.  Sorry Pat, it will be back soon, promise.

Along with the graphics levels because AUUGGHH

“Wut?  If there’s anythin’ hangin’ off my lip, I swear it ain’t any dingleberries…”

No Cletus… it’s not that…

“Wait… somethin’s wrong… where’s McAssWagon?!  How yall expect me to be calm ‘n happy with full stats if I can’t sit in my McAssWagon ‘n smoke my doobies?!  PAT’S WIFE!  Please tell me you have McAssWagon shoved up in that massive blackhole of urs ‘r somethin’!”

“Um, nope.  The only think I have there is my high school diploma.”

Oops.  I guess the Motive Mobile wasn’t in someone’s inventory when we moved again.  The Charger can be replaced quicker… as for “McAssWagon”… it just sucks.

“Hey wait… this ain’t our lot frum last time… this one is smaller.”

Yes, smaller lots don’t take so long to load anyway.  Better for me!

“… I like the nice hawse though.”

Like you people even know what to do with a nice house!!

What are you two doing?!

“Oh um… it was the horse…”

“Don’t even pin this one on me, dog!”

“I’m still a farmer… I can still do farmin’ things without mah hat… sniff…”

Poor Pat spent the entire time hatless just scowling and pouting.  He’s become so pitiful without it…

While Pat was moaning around in the yard for his damn hat, Bella christened the kitchen like the idiot she is.

“I’ve been holding that in all day and that feels so good…

“I think I wus the las’ person in this hawse besides my son that even liked yew, Bella.  Na’ I don’t, gud job.”

“Wut’s WRONG wid’ yall people?!  Don’t yall know anythin’ bout sittin’ right?!  I know yall were raised in a barn ‘n all, but damn!”

UGH, I must have missed some CC.  Sad that Pat’s hat was deleted for this.

OH, I forgot to show off the new Secksie house, didn’t I?  Ok, here we are, BAM, we are back living in a trailer.  It looks much better when it doesn’t look like it will slide around on the blocky ground, I promise.

“Where am I supposed to sleep now?!  I had a warm cozy barn to sleep in the last game!  Where do you expect me to stay at night?!”

Lynyard, for all I care, you can sleep on the couch.  Matter of fact, I’d encourage that for this family.

This is the living room, viewed from the kitchen.

“WE’RE GOIN’ DOWN DOWN IN AN EARLIER ROUND, SUGUR’ WE’RE GOIN’ DOWN SWINGIN

…Dale walked into the shot at the wrong time apparently.

This is Papa ‘n Mama’s bedroom, and behind the wall is the little bathroom they won’t use, so as usual, it won’t get a photo.

But this bathroom will because the set that comes with Pets is just too cool.

And Tater’s and Bear’s bathroom, because they have a cannon in it.

This is the boy’s room.  As you can see, it’s a build-on on the side of the trailer, since there’s part of a porch.

“Wut’s that ur sittin’ on Bear?  Is that a shark?!  Oh man, that’s kinda scary!”

Actually, Tater’s little kinky chair he took from Holloween is broken CC too, but I think I prefer that he sits a little closer to the front edge so he doesn’t have that thing around his neck.

“So this means I git to keep it?!”

I don’t know Tater, it’s still broken CC and all…

To the left of the property is Bloaty’s house, and the return of a toolshed, where Nascar and Dale bunk together at night.

“Zzz, he sets fire to my home wid’ that damn thing I’ll castrate ’em… zzz…”

Sculpture stand: *obviously stuck through the wall*

And this is the overview of the whole property, complete with the horse and the dog showing out >:I

“Oh no!  The baby is coming!  This is terrible, my husband is at work and has no way of contacting me at the library!  If only there was a kind soul that was willing to drive me to the hospital right now…”

“SHH, quiet woman!  I sense somethin’ VERY important is happenin’, something much more important that ur baby…”

“I wus RIGHT!  A DEER!  Oh GAWD, a six poin’ner!  SHIT!  Where’s my gun when I need one?!”

“Damn deer, yew lucky today.  If I was armed wid’ anything right now, yew’d make a tasty hash.”

“O_o fuck you dude, I’m out.”

*Sinkhole eats the hospital lot*

*Sinkhole spits hospital back up*

“Yeah!  This was an awesome night!  I saw a deer, I gawt mah hat back, and I’m growin’ up now!  Hurray fur me!”

“Yeah baby, I make this luk gud… now where’s that deer?”

“Oh dear gawd, dad…”

  1. ahhh, this is so funny.

    I sometimes set my graphics on low because otherwise there would be quite a few broken computers (Along with holes in the windows )
    xxxx Love it! keep up the good work!

    • missmiserie says:

      I’ve never had to lower my graphic this low before, at least not in a long time. Sadly everything runs quicker with the piss poor graphics, so I stayed crappy for a while XD

      • Yeah… My laptop apparantly has an awesome graphics card, 500mg, 4gb, and all that blah, which is FAR by enough to play the sims 3… but for some reason, it fucks up on me when I play sims and costantly crashes and lags.
        I have the same problems as you.
        xxx 😦
        P.S Alot of my sims look like they are from the sims 1 too :/

      • missmiserie says:

        I’ve heard that even the good cards are doing bad. And I’ve got a pretty basic card as it is myself :\

  2. Gargantua says:

    LOL! Way to go Pat! I’ve seen sims transition into some pretty hideous outfits, but that one is at the top of the list. As for Tater, here is to hoping he can find a man to love.

    As to the corrupted CC, you might want to check out this thread: http://fourwinds.createforumhosting.com/possible-fix-for-broken-cc-pets-ep-t2676.html – apparently something in Pets messed up store items.

    • missmiserie says:

      I know, did EA actually think we’d put that on our sims?

      Most of my store items still work fine. It’s the other CC that wants to break. I’ll have to keep this thread favorited though. Be my luck all kinds of crap flies off the handle how that I said that 😛

  3. Rochelle says:

    Oh my gosh, Pets is being a bastard to you for real.

    The new lot looks great, even though the grass doesn’t!

    Nooooo, Pat’s hat! DDD: His head looks so naked! Damn bad CC.

    This was hilarious 😀

  4. skehrer says:

    At first I thought The TownS of Appaloosa was a typo and then I read the post…
    Damn your computer! WTH!!!
    The funeral set up for Mt. Dew was awesome!
    Argh, the bad CC! I think I’m going to take everything out and slowly test it all before going back to the Foods. If I get to actually play – I haven’t had time to play since the Halloween Party. The Testys are waiting…
    I loved that Bear was sitting on a shark chair, because his father is Shark!?! LOL! Am I the only one that finds that ironic?
    I understand why you had to sacrifice your ghosts, but I will miss them. 😦
    Have you tried using Grant’s fix for your package files? http://sims3.the-prof.net/forums/index.php/topic,1298.0.html#msg1995

    • missmiserie says:

      The funeral WAS going to be awesome… but it died along with Dewie and the rest of that town…
      I knew that too and wanted to point that out, but I thought it was going to be obvious anyway XD

      OOOH, I haven’t. Better check this out!

  5. uggles says:

    Amg. Appaloosa plains is such a great town for the Secksies! Second only to Twinbrook of course.
    It does seem like the population is smaller to me too, I think it’s cause of all the critters in the households, ’cause most families have at least a couple.

    I love the new house with all the rusted out vehicles lol! It reminds me of home..*sniff* just need to stick that land out in the middle of the woods and it’d be just like one of the houses I grew up in.. hahah. I really love the little house you gave Bloaty, SO cute and he looks so happy in there doesn’t he?

    I wish you could take Chip II and hook him up with Tater. That would be perfect for both of ’em 😀

    • missmiserie says:

      Forgot to think of the pets compared to the rest of the population. That would make sense.

      It’s actually the closest I could get to my grandparents house without the holes ._.

      Aw, that would be so cute! Knowing my luck though, Chip would run around straight in my game, like Lee suddenly was after I left them alone five minutes after the Bloaty special. He was all, “DUMP VJ, ACQUIRE BITCHES” for some reason ._.

  6. Malin says:

    Loved the Pets bathroom, ‘specially the toilet. It’s so… round (and not just the edges).

    Personally I think Pat’s growing-up-to-elder-outfit wasn’t bad, just “meh” in terms of colours.

    McAssWagon! Bwahahaha! 😀

  7. Nyan Han says:

    “I got you some ice cream… Lt. Dan, ICE CREAM“
    I literally laughed my ass off. First Ron White: They Call Me Tater Salad reference, and now a Forrest Gump reference in 1 legacy?
    Best. legacy. ever!!!! 😀
    I hope Pets stops becoming a douche for you!

  8. rainyopal says:

    Just what I’ve always dreamed of seeing in a Secksie chapter – deer and coon!

    I’ve yet to see a buck in my game, just a couple doe running around, so I’m happy to see they exist.

    I’m also excited to see you play in Appaloosa because I’ve been avoiding it like the plague since Pets came out.

    • missmiserie says:

      There are a lot of doe. And they are so flitty, it’s a wonder you see them at all!

      Appaloosa is great lookwise! I haven’t found a lot of sims I’ve fallen in love with yet though :\

  9. StyxLady says:

    “Heh heh, ‘n it’s funneh cuz he’s all water, ‘n that means it’s only gonna take a few seconds fur my pee to travel up to his mouth…” XD eeeew, but funny!

    I’m sorry you’re having so much trouble with your game. As you know, I had similar troubles, and it’s super annoying. >< Still, I'm glad you managed to save most everyone.

    And OMG, Pat's elder outfit, it's just win! lmao

  10. Madcapp says:

    He finally found the deer. Woot!
    I’m kind of sad that Pat is old now. I think he’s been my absolute favorite out of everyone.

  11. somebodysangel13 says:

    Just wanted to say that I am loving this legacy. Haven’t laughed this much since I read Styx’s Berry Crazy ISBI. With some of the things your sims get up to, I would have sworn they were in an ISBI, lol.

    I’m sorry you had so much trouble with your game, though the glitches do make for some hilarious commentary. My main issues with Sims are lag and textures not loading, but maybe that’s because I haven’t played through 7 generations of one family (yet!)
