Verne Broke- Round 10- House 14

Welcome back to Verne Broke's house. He lives in the old Caliente house which he modified to his liking.
Verne is the alien son of ex-maid Remington who married Brandi Broke.
Verne had a twin called Jules who sadly perished in a house fire.
Verne lives here with his wife Lucy who was his college sweetheart.
As morning breaks they both get inheritance. Verne receives funds from his dad Remington and Alexander (Goth) Pleasant. Lucy gets money from Alexander (Goth) Pleasant, Stella Terrano and Angela Pleasant.
Verne enjoys his pancakes after a heavy morning jogging session.
Lucy finally found a job in Science. Her LTW is to become a Mad Scientist after all. She starts as a Lab Assistant and gets a promotion the first day.
Verne is working towards his LTW to become Captain Hero. He celebrates that day's promotion to Police Chief.
They decide to take the celebrations downtown when invited out by Jordan the Diva.
Francis J Worthington lll (in blue) joins the outing as the newest graduate in Pleasantview.
They have fun bowling,
and finish off with a nice dinner.
The next day Verne becomes Captain Hero.
As both Verne and Lucy's hobby is Science they take themselves off to the Aspirational Laboratories' hobby lot.
They meet the head of the Lab who is called Jace. Verne spends lots of time with Jace as for some while he has wished to be 'in the zone' in this hobby.
Once back home Verne becomes an avid stargazer. He is intrigued about his 'other' family but as yet has not been whisked off to meet them.
Lucy is working hard on skills to get her next promotion using her husband's career reward to gain a cleaning skill or two.
Verne has several days off and is already bored so jumps at a chance for a new career when offered by townie Linda Barthelet.
He invited Linda into his home and also asked Jace to come over where they spent a pleasant afternoon getting to know one another.
Lucy got a promotion to Science Teacher and brought Vivian Hollmo home with her.
Verne asked his new friend Francis J over and they spent an afternoon watching movies and chatting.
He got in the zone later that day whilst stargazing with Lucy.
 (I only stargaze until they see a shooting star as per their wishes and keep my fingers crossed that they aren't hit by a falling satellite!).
Another day and another outing for Verne! He's a popular Sim in the 'hood.
He's not much of a dancer, choosing to break free from dance when instructed but enjoyed making some new contacts and catching up with old ones.
Lucy isn't yet in the zone but has maxed her logic skill.
One of Verne's newest friends is Frond Gregory, the only plantsim/vampire in Pleasantview. He'll only come over after dark of course.
On Saturday Verne got a demotion from a chance card yet he still celebrates his return from work.
An hour or so later his house got burgled.
Thankfully the Pleasantview Police were on the ball and soon had the suspect in custody.
Poor Verne was more upset about his demotion.
On Sunday Lucy celebrated becoming a Scholar by treating herself to a small modification,
"let it work, let it work"...
 Yes! Just a small modification to her lips- nice and subtle. (maybe Hollywood should get one of these?!).
 Verne got over his disappointment of demotion by going out for the morning to Lucy's Cup of the World internet cafĂ© where he met up with old friend and former owner Lucy Burb and made some new contacts too.
 He bought Lucy a cup of coffee and they enjoyed a pleasant couple of hours catching up.
I like how Amin Bruenig and Aidan Bigfoot have become best friends with no interaction from me, :D
 One of Verne's big wishes for the day was to become best friends with Francis J.
Lucy spent the afternoon catching up with friends on the telephone,
 and later that evening Verne's remaining family, half-sister Eliza Broke and her husband Adam came over for dinner.
A great week here at Verne's. Very social! I think I don't often enough blog how many visits and friendships my sims make so this was a nice change.
Once again I was trying for the facial modifying machine to go wrong but it never works when you want it to!
Ending wishes,
Verne, Make a best friend, make a best friend forever, go on holiday, see a wolf, play with Francis J, talk to Francis J.
Lucy- Be in the zone in Science, gain a skill, stargaze, blog about Science, be best friends with Phoebe, see a shooting star.
The next family to visit is Marco Lothario, coming soon!


  1. when i let my sims stargaze on the ground, sometimes i wish for the satellite drop just to have something different. But i do save before their stargaze just in case i change my mind. Lots of downtown place being used. I try and use a different one every time i go downtown with my sims.

    1. I've had two death by satellite's in this neighbourhood, one in college and more recently at the Pleasant house a couple of rounds ago. It happened as soon as they lay on the ground and I hadn't saved beforehand so I just let it be.
      I admit I tend to always use the same places downtown, the Diner and Crypt O'Nightclub being my favourites so I am trying to use some of the others now and then. :)

  2. Never had a death by satellite in my game, and for a long time I suspected it wasn't at all possible, just a rumour.
    Your downtown outings are fun to watch, I really need to take my Sims out more, too!
    I like what you've done to the old Caliente place. It looks stylish and suits Verne and Lucy.

    1. Thanks for stopping by :)
      Yes I do like my Sims to get out of the house, especially in this style of play because it re-rolls wishes naturally when they arrive somewhere new.
      I do like making over the original houses, :D

  3. Nice update an I have an udate if you wanna take a look - and review if you can because that would make me happy if you do so :)

  4. I have had death by satellite a few times...once was a surprise (in Uni) and the rest I was trying for it. It is the best to get the sims off the lot to reroll the wishes, otherwise they get stale. Hard to fulfill 5.

    1. Yes it's a lot harder than it looks isn't it?!
