Round 1: Monty 3

Round 1: Monty 3
Dating for Dummies
Bianca Monty is single and ready to mingle, but first she needs to get Kent Capp out of her system. Let's see how Bianca is doing...
Landlord: Just sign on the dotted line, little lady, and the place is all yours.
Bianca: Thank you! This is my first apartment, and I'm very excited. My brother speaks very highly of your building.
Landlord: That's right, you're kin to the folks in Unit A. You and Antonio are Patrizio Monty's kids, right? I'm sorry to hear about his passing.
Bianca: Thanks. It's hit the family very hard.
Landlord: Well, don't you worry, Miss Bianca. You've got the best landlord in Veronaville, if I do say so myself, and your neighbors are mighty fine people.
Bianca: Well, thank you again. I'm sure this is going to be a great experience.
Me: Congrats on your new place, Bianca. You've been on your own for all of twenty minutes, and you're already inviting Kent over?
Bianca: This apartment symbolizes my new beginning. Kent is part of my old life and I need some closure to our relationship.
Me: What relationship? You're infatuated with him, and he barely knows you exist. I admit I'm baffled as to why. I'm surprised Kristen isn't running for the hills, either.
Bianca: Kristen?
Me: Oops! Uh, yeah, Bianca I've been meaning to talk to you about that.
Bianca: We'll talk later, Kent is here.
Bianca: Kent, hi. I'm glad you could come. Congratulations! You're my first official visitor.
Me: What am I, chopped liver?
Me: Whoa! Bianca, what are you doing? This is not what "getting closure" means.
Bianca: Kent, I'm sorry, I thought this is what I wanted, what I needed, but I can't do this.
Kent: I understand, Bianca. I was an idiot to let things go this far. Your dad just died. I didn't mean to take advantage.
Bianca: Kent, I love you, but I know you're not in love with me. I need to be with someone who wants all of me. I'm sorry, but I can't see you anymore.
Me: You weren't seeing him in the first place, you delusional woman.
Kent: Ok, Bianca, you're right. I should go now.
Me: What, not even a "Can't we still be friends?" Nice, Kent. You're lucky you can't hear me right now.
Me: Bianca, don't do it!
Bianca: Don't do what?
Me: Don't become the crazy, old cat lady.
Bianca: I'm not getting Zeus and Hera to fill a void. I want to breed kittens. I hope to open up my own pet shop eventually.
Me: Oh, I guess that's okay, then. Zeus and Hera? Cute.
Me: Here's Zeus all grown up.
Me: And here is Hera.
Me: Bianca wastes no time in sending Zeus and Hera off to get working on those kittens.
Me: Ah, Bruce is here. Excellent, Bianca. This is what is meant by "moving on."
Bianca: Bruce, I'm glad we've gotten the chance to get to know each other better.
Bruce: Me too, Bianca. Who would have ever thought that a parent fix-up could actually work?
Bianca: Having you in my life has meant so much since my father died.
Me: Uh-oh. Danger Will Robinson!
Bianca: You're so much like him. I guess it's true that a girl grows up to marry her father.
Bruce: Er, marry?
Me: Ix-nay on the ather-fay
Bianca:You are so kind, Bruce. I can see us becoming best friends forever.
Me: Doh!
Bruce: *disappointed* Oh, so you just want to be friends?
Bianca: No! Bruce, that's not what I meant. Look, I'm not very experienced in this dating thing, but I like you and would like to see where this relationship goes.
Bruce: I'd like that too.
Me: And your relationship has led right to the couch. Rushing things much?
Bianca: Bruce, this may sound crazy.
Me: Coming from you? Perish the thought!
Bianca: Would you like to move in?
Bruce: I'd love to.
Me: Um, for once, I think I'm going to let the cat destroy the couch. Nice kitty!
Bruce is the second townie to join the playable ranks! I had pictured Bianca as someone who would wait for marriage, but ACR blew that out of the water!  As soon as Kent came over they headed for the bed, but they didn't actually woohoo. They only made out. That's why I came up with Bianca's speech to Kent. The couch thing was also ACR, but Bianca and Bruce did go all the way. I guess she really has gotten over Kent.

On another note, I looked all over TwoJeff's site, but I couldn't find ACR 2.0. Does anyone have a link? Did he implement the autonomous engagement and autonomous marriage?\

Only one more lot to go in Veronaville! The Summerdreams are up next. Stay tuned...


  1. Bruce and Bianca...what a pair, eh? So Bianca starts out with a crush on Kent and Kent doesn't care?

    Kent always started out as a little gay in my game, actually! His gender preference was positive for males and negative for female but it was low enough that he showed chemistry for either sex.

    None of my Sims ever seem to wait for marriage since ACR! I'm going to force one of them (or two of them, I guess) to wait one day, I swear!

    ACR 2.0 is at Simbology but you need to be logged in to see it. I couldn't figure out why I couldn't see it for ages and then I finally figured it out one night. So far, no autonomous marriage or engagement but I think I read that he said it wouldn't be that difficult to implement but that Sims wouldn't be that smart about it.

  2. Carla, thanks for the Simbiology tip. I wasn't signed in, so that was the problem.

    I noticed the same thing with Kent in my game too. I think it was Maxis' intent for Bianca to have an unrequited crush on a gay man. I was trying to hint at that in my Capp 2 post (especially when I had him and Amanda both admiring Jason Menon). It seems in my game that if Kent had his way, he'd be with Amanda or Titania, but since they are both taken and because of the Alphabet Twist, they are off limits.

  3. I haven't downloaded the new ACR due to it ruining the whole risky pregnancy and setting a cap. I like to be frustrated and surprised, LOL. I don't want to actively dictate how many babies a sim family will have!

    Also, LOL, Bianca! What would your father say?!

  4. Mao,

    In the end, I decided not to get the new ACR. I also like the surprise factor of Risky Woohoo, and I don't want to limit the number of children either.
