Hello, my preziouz ones!

So... I have a question about The Sims 4, that I'm hoping maybe some of you might be able to answer.
I'm playing The Sims 4 on PC in Swedish (since I've played all the other sims games in Swedish and I live in Sweden), and I just noticed this the other day.

Three of the plant names and descriptions are in English. This concerns the cherry tree, the pear tree and the pomegranate tree. All the other plants have Swedish names and descriptions. Why is this? Is it a bug? Should I do something about it?
I believe it happened after the latest patch.

Hello, my preziouz ones! This is version 2 of the story about Gaia Sparks, which hopefully will go on for many generations.
Are you curious about what will happen? Then continue reading!

Gaia picked up her phone and dialled her best friend's number.
"Hey girl! What's up?" said the voice on the other end.
"Hi, Dina. Nothing much. I'm still trying to find a roomate for my new house in Windenburg" Gaia sighed.
"Still? Is there anything I can do to help?"
"Not unless you know someone who's looking for a place to live in Windenburg, but can't afford to pay the rent by themselves - like me"
"Hah! I can't believe I didn't think of this sooner" Dina burst out. "I actually have a friend who meets your criteria"
"Really?!" Gaia said enthusiastically.
"Yeah! He's a cheerful and outdoorsy guy..." Dina started, but got interrupted by Gaia's hesitant voice.
"A guy? You want me to move in with a guy?"
"What's wrong with that? He's super nice and funny. If I were in your situation, I'd love to have him as my roommate" Dina said encouragingly.
"But moving in with a strange man... I don't know..." Gaia still hesitated. "What if he tries to hit on me?"
"Haha, Gaia! You're such a prude! But don't worry - I'm pretty sure he's gay. He won't bother you in that way"
"I'm not a prude" Gaia protested. "I just haven't found the right guy for me yet. And are you sure he's gay?"
"Yep. I'm like 99.9% sure. Otherwise, he would've hit on me already" Dina said confidently.
Gaia shook her head, laughed silently and replied: "Not all guys want to hit on you, Dina"
"Why wouldn't they? I'm F-I-N-E" she said cockily, emphasizing each letter of the word. "Anyway, I'll text you his number, and I'll ask him to come over to your new house tomorrow. Maybe you can do a trial run with a sleepover first?"
"Sure, I can agree to that. And thank you so much, Dina. You're the best!"
"I know, right? Oh, and his name is Ouranos, by the way. I totally forgot to mention that" Dina laughed. "Laters!"

Gaia said goodbye and hung up the phone. "Ouranos" she thought. "What an interesting name"
"Ouranos" she said out loud, trying to get a feel on his name. "I sure hope this will work out"

The following day, Ouranos arrived at the Havisham house in Windenburg, and Gaia went outside to meet him.

"Hello there, I'm Gaia. It's so nice to meet you!" she said welcomingly.
"Hi, Gaia. My name is Ouranos, as I'm sure Dina's already told you. Thank you for giving me a try-out to become your new roommate" he said gratefully.
"A try-out?" Gaia laughed "Dina was right when she said you were funny"

It seemed like they had an instant connection, speaking like this wasn't in fact their very first encounter.
When they were done greeting each other, they both fell silent, not knowing where to go from here.

Without realizing what they were doing, they ended up gazing deeply into each other's eyes.
They must've stood like that for about a minute, when Gaia suddenly came to.
"Ehrm... Would you like a tour of the house?" she asked.

Gaia showed him around and ended the tour by pointing to the bed with the freshly made sheets, where he was supposed to sleep that night.

Then they went outside to enjoy the beautiful weather, and literally talked for hours.

After some time, they were finally interrupted by Gaia's growling stomach.
"I'll answer that by saying that I'm also starving." Ouranos said with a laugh. "Would you like to go out to dinner with me?"
"I'd love to" was her reply.
"Great! I'll go and freshen up right away. Let me just give you a thank you hug"

Before she had time to answer, Ouranos' big and muscular arms were around her in a tight, but lovely embrace.
Gaia's heart started beating like crazy and she felt a bit dizzy.
"O-ohh" she stammered.
Ouranos broke off the hug. "Oh, I'm sorry." he apologized sincerely. "I don't know anything about my real parents, but my adoptive family is a family of huggers" he explained.
Gaia, who just got her tongue to work again, replied: "That's all right. You just surprised me. Should we go and get ready, and then meet here again in 30 minutes?" she said to divert their attention away from the hug.
"Sure. I'll see you in 30 minutes. And it would be amazing if you could dress a bit formal. The restaurant I'm taking you to is one of the fancier ones" Ouranos said with a seductive little smile.

Hello, my preziouz ones! (Catch phrase - yes or no?)

So, I'm a total Sims nerd. I wouldn't say that I'm good at the game (I'm not even sure it's a game you can be good or bad at...), but anyway. I'm currently playing The Sims 4, and I created a family called Sparks. And I thought: "Why not make up a whole story about them? It could be fun, right?" So here I am. About to give it a try. And I'd really appreciate if you could give me some feedback about it, so I'll know if I should continue with this project or not.

Note: I apologize beforehand, if the story might feel inconsistent or "jumpy" sometimes. That's because I'm new at this and I'll probably forget to take pictures of some monumental events in the Sparks family's lives. Hopefully, I'll get better at this as we go along.

(EDIT: After getting some feedback, I've now made some modifications to how I'll tell the Sparks family's story. Please let me know what you think.)

Now, let me introduce you to the Sparks family!

Gaia Sparks is a romantic and family oriented foodie. She has just moved to the Havisham House in Windenburg, and she's looking to find her soulmate. Gaia is an orphan and she doesn't have any other living relatives. Since she's also very low on funds, she has to find a roommate to live with in her new house.

Let's hope that the Sparks won't stay a one person household for long.

Hello, my preziouz! (Could it be my new catch phrase?)

I'd love to hear what you think about my category headers. There are four of them now. I know I haven't posted anything that would go in the 'Crafting' category yet, but I'm getting there. So, please share your opinions with me.



This one, I made tonight, and I'm really pleased with the result. What do you think? Is it missing something? I'd love to hear your opinion, so please write a comment here or on Howrse. You can also send me a private message on Howrse, if you want. I'm all ears and open for suggestions.



I love to play around with stuff in Photoshop CS5, and I thought I could show you some of the projects I've been working on lately. This is the first one in a planned series of "Divine Family Trees". I'd love to know what you think about it, so feel free to leave a comment down below, in my forum on Howrse or in a private message on Howrse.



Hello Howrsers! I thought it would be a great idea to make some guides about stuff in the game, starting with Topaz, Frost, Xanthos and Archimedes. Let me know what you think.

This is something you can include in your daily Howrse routine (if you haven't already), since it earns you equus, APs and other things you might need. Either you use the links that a lot of players put on their pages, or you can do it this way:

Start by going to "Community > Directories", and then click on the tab called "Horses". Check the box called "Divine horses" to make things easier for you, and then search for "Topaz", "Frost", "Xanthos" and "Archimedes". I prefer to open the horses' pages in new tabs, so you won't have to go back and forth as much.

Topaz - congratulate 5 different Topaz each day - earn 50 equus per Topaz or even a diamond (if you're lucky)

Frost - defrost one Frost each day - chance to win a Hypnos' Blanket - chance to get your own Frost on the first day of next month

Note how the frost actually disappears when you defrost her.

Xanthos - stroke 5 different Xanthos each day - the first Xanthos gives 10% energy to your most recently born horse - chance to win a Horn of Plenty and 1000 equus (the reward is received the next day and may happen more than once per day)

Archimedes - answer one question (you only get one chance with one Archimedes each day) - if your answer is correct, you'll earn an AP and Archimedes' intelligence level will increase - if you choose the wrong answer, Archimedes will lose some intelligence

It can be a good idea to visit different Topaz, Frost, Xanthos and Archimedes, so you're not just defrosting the exact same Frost or stroking the same 5 Xanthos every day. I don't know this for sure, but I've understood that visiting different horses each day, might increase your chances of getting the nicer rewards (it could also help you with the Loyal Player's Pass).

For example, you can congratulate the first 5 Topaz today, visit the next 5 tomorrow, and so on.

Please let me know if you're interested in getting more guides like this one.



I find the Black Market Item Water of Youth (WoY), to be very annoying. It takes forever to age horses with them on, and it also uses up tons of your hard-earned APs. So whenever the objective "Remove a Water of Youth from a horse" presents itself during an event, I instantly jump at the opportunity to free one of my poor horses (usually one of my unis - which I don't even know why I put WoYs on in the first place) from the WoYs wrath.

So thank you, Ow's Memories, for helping me free *Úi* from her WoY.



The latest event on Howrse is called Ow's Memories. It's a brand new event that works like the "Memory" card game.

In the 11 days that have passed since the event started, I've gotten this far:

I just finished level 11 and got another Ow's Helios Ray. Yay! Now, I have two more to put on my horses, but I'm still missing one more for the next Ow's Helios Ray trophy.

Something that annoys me (and most other players, probably) is the fact that you only get 6 keys each day. The objectives can also offer a couple of keys sometimes, but it's still too few.

So I actually just spent 20 diamonds on two key packs, which've been offered this weekend, just so that I could continue playing and make some kind of progress. I'm a really impatient girl.

But anyway, now I'm off to start playing on level 12.
