Brynlee listens to Lily Feng, the wife of Victor Feng and a powerful CEO at Dewey, Cheatem and Howe Incorporated. Lily suggests checking out some fashion stores for an Uptown makeover. Now that they’re part of the elite citizens of San Myshuno, they should dress to impress!
The Uptown welcome wagon arrives to meet the new residents of 888 The Spire. Veer chats with stylish Diego Lobo, an arts critic for The San Myshuno Times. Meanwhile, Erik gets to know Victor Feng, an influential city politician.
Not needing a three bedroom apartment any more, Erik, Brynlee and Veer decide it’s time to trade up and move to Uptown. The Spire is probably the most desirable two bedroom apartment in San Myshuno, and with their high paying salaries they can easily afford the rent.
Veer Srivastava couldn’t be happier that his friends Erik and Brynlee got married. He’s been their biggest shipper since the beginning. When they called Veer to tell him about their engagement, he rushed over to the Romance Festival to congratulate them.
From the moment he met Brynlee Woodward, Erik knew that she was The One. They were soulmates destined to be together. On a high from just getting engaged (and some sakura tea), Brynlee and Erik decide they can’t wait to be married to each other and have a heat of the moment wedding at the Romance Festival.
While visiting the Romance Festival with his girlfriend Brynlee, Erik Hashimoto spontaneously drops down on one knee and proposes to her. Brynlee has no hesitation in saying yes. They first showed their romantic interest in each other at one of these festivals, so it seems fitting that they should get engaged here too!
After returning from Sixam, Erik treats his colleagues from FutureSim Labs to a celebratory dinner at Villa Bovine. His team have achieved a giant leap for simkind and opened the door to future communications, technology and cultural exchange with a whole new world.
It’s aliens! Erik makes first contact with the inhabitants of Sixam, who seem to be quite welcoming and friendly. They appear to be having a party, themed with objects from Earth, which they say they visit often to study the inhabitants and culture.
After powering up the Wormhole Generator at FutureSim Labs, Erik Hashimoto steps through the portal and arrives on a strange new world. The planet Sixam is far beyond the reach of SpaceY’s vessels with conventional drives. It’s time to explore where no sim has gone before!
The laboratory leader is Erik Hashimoto, a man who Kazumi recently dated. Erik reassures Kazumi that even though they have a romantic history, he has a new girlfriend now, so there won’t be any problems keeping things professional.
