We are back with the third rotation of pictures. I am breaking this in to three entries because the first and third houses had several pictures and I didn't want the page to take too long to load.

Day 7: Virgon Maxed Knowledge but I missed the picture. If you can see behind him there is an ambulance, apparently he was just demoted, not fired.

Marshall got promoted to Field Researcher.

Virgon got promoted to Paramedic, again.

Day 8: I now know why people love these things (by the end of the three days there were four used ones in the lawn area. I guess I will have to delete them eventually.

I have decided Marsha will be moving in with Virgon and Marshall, mainly because the next highest relationship was Brandi LeTourneau and that was 3/3. I had Marshall give Marsha a call to boost their relationship more before he called her in the evening to get her to move in.

Yeah; better car finally.

Virgon maxed Cleaning.

Because Virgon was doing so well and because he rolled the want for it, I let him hire a maid, we got Kaylynn.

Oh my goodness, someone Virgon actually gets along with. Maybe he will marry Kaylynn and Marsha will act as Marshall's child from a mother unknown.

Marshall calling over Marsha.

Marsha moves in and is also a Virgo (9/2/6/3/5, which is the default spread). I am thinking about making her Popularity when she ages to teen, but we will see what kind of wants she rolls first.

Day 9: Awww, Virgon is reading to Marsha.

Marshall got promoted to Science Teacher.

And then Marshall helps his daughter Marsha with her homework.

She is going to be a very spoiled child if you cannot tell. She also has the teddy bear dressed in a bunny outfit to the left but unseen.

Since there are now three of them and the couch is not that big I got them a dinning table.

I accidentally went a little into day 10. I had to hire a nanny because both of the guys now start before Marsha leaves for school. She is only here for two hours in the morning fortunately. We got Calista.
How did you manage to get Marsha to move in?
Very exciting though, that she now is part of the household.

Sweet that Virgon finally seems to have found someone he likes. Kaylynn and he make a nice pair. <3
I used boolprop and there is a add neighbor to family option. I thought she had to be on lot for it to work, but then found that it was only after she left that her name showed up on the menu.

There is some info about how to do that at this website. There was a more complete instruction site but I can't find the link anymore (last time I used it was a couple years ago so it may have died by now.)
I was correct the the original site I had been using has now closed, but I used the Way Back Machine to find all of the information. I have copied and pasted the relevant pieces below.

To activate the cheat open the cheat window with CTRL SHIFT C, then type in the cheat window boolprop testingcheatsenabled true

To turn off the cheat type boolprop testingcheatsenabled false

For this option you will need the Tombstone of Life and Death

To get the Tombstone of Life and Death, shift click on an adult sim then click More then click Spawn then click Tombstone of L and D

You can add visitors to your household or create entirely new sims. You can keep adding them as well, there is no limit. Once you pass 8 however, your sim can no longer get pregnant, you can only get new babies by clicking on the Tombstone.

To add existing visitors, click on the Tombstone of Life & Death, then click Add to Family, then choose from the options which visitor you want to add. You will see that you can add anyone even teenagers and children with this option, that you wouldn't normally be able to invite. If you want to add NPC teenagers you will need to invite them over then add them to the family.

There are other options for adding new members to the family on the the Tombstone of Life and Death

* Get Family Member
* Add Neighbour to Family
I *think* I used that cheat once, way back when. I added a child which I then wanted to age up and so she could attend Uni with the children of that family, but I found that the child I added couldn't retain her aspiration points. I was trying to get her nice and gold or plat before her birthday so she would have a nice growing-up memory, but no matter how many wants I fulfilled her aspiration stayed at nil. Also, I saved the game and shut my computer off for the night, and when I went into that family the next day the girl had left the family. Hm, I wonder if I just made her selectable. Oh well, now I have all the EPs I get the option to age up any childhood friends. Still, it would be fun to actually get to play some of those kids. Marsha is definitely one I would want to play. And Chandler, and Brittany. :D I might just give that cheat another go.
That does sound like you made her Selectable, but not actually added to the family.

One of the Maxis Made family, the Summerdreams, the two adults in that family never get aspiration points added when I try and fill the wants they have; that may be part of why I never play that family very long. I am still not sure what causes that and no amount of expansion packs and stuff packs ever seemed to fix it.
Hm, I don't think I have ever played the Summerdreams, but that sounds like the same problem.
I'm itching to go into game now and try adding a "stray" child from the townie pool. :D Thanks for the cheat code.
