Sims 2 Apocalypse Challenge Rules

Eden in the Apocalypse (UPDATE 8/13/17)

Postby milaek » May 18th, 2016, 6:58 pm

Hello and welcome to Eden in the Apocalypse! Don’t let the blank front page fool you, click a chapter link and get a reading! We’ve got an amusing story here, or at least I laughed while making it.

Eden in the Apocalypse is a Sims 2 Apocalypse challenge that follows the INappropriately named Eden family, because irony gives me the giggles.

Do you like copious amounts of CC? Bad puns? Dialogue between creation and creator? Then you’re in the right place!

(Originally inspired by EphermeralToast’s “Apocalypso a Go-Go” but it was very many years ago that I read it for the first time. And just now I'm getting around to making one of my own. Hahaha)

Re- Sam, oh my gosh!! Thank you for spending the time to read any of it!! It was so quiet here, I was worried no one would look at it...
Hehe I'm glad you thought my founder was pretty! I tried XD I may have a mild problem with spending hours clicking back and forth in character creation hehehe.

If you have any feedback I would love hear it, especially since you co-won the funniest story award last! OuO

Should have the next chapter up at least by Monday. Ironically weekends are super busy and i don't have time to sim as much XP

Somehow managed to miss the fact you'd updated

Spoiler:
I'd say playing by an earlier set of rules is fine, I know some other people do. It's hard enough keeping the rules straight without having the worry about ALL the expansions, too!

I didn't know pets would lose relationship points over locked doors! As if we're still discovering things this many years after the game :)

That Natural Science outfit isn't really appropriate for a never-ending winter, is it? :lol: but hooray for lifting restrictions!

Tough call with choosing lifts, I'd say. Do you have ideas in mind for what you want to lift generally, or just going with the flow?


Looking forward to the babies!

Haha trust me, the babies are worth waiting for. They're quiiiite something.
Spoiler:
Haha pets usually dont loose points, turns out it was part of the glitch XP The dog ended up with like... -99 on both with Kevin and they'd never even met.
As for careers, I've got a general plan (I have a cute little journal I'm keeping next to the computer where I keep all my notes on things) but it's made to be pretty flexible because apocalypse challenges tend to not go according to anyone's plans but their own XD mostly its just stuff like 'i want to make sure to lift these three first' and 'save artist for last' etc.

Thank you for reading OuO It really means a lot!!!
(Next update should be coming tomorrow, get hyped!)

If you put the date you update into the topic title when you edit the thread, more people will notice your updates, too :)

Spoiler:
Aw a total lack of nice points isn't all bad :lol:

I didn't think about just putting the car somewhere, normally faffing about with pillars and junk to put it in place!

I forgot that was the ridiculously neat vampire. Mopping up puddles in the snow!!

It might be the cc skins causing the skin issue, although I don't know much about it. Y could try the game help section for a solution, they might have one.

I've been offline for about two months. Here I am, freshly back online, and I find a brand new apocalypse! Hooray! I love reading them!

This is a lot of fun.

Spoiler:
Your founder sure is pretty. I think the CC skin reacts weird to vampirism, but other than that, it's quite nice.

Yeah, kids can be SO WEIRD in their personalities! Good luck with the next one or two.

And here's hoping hubby-whatsisname gets his LTW, and stops being so ignored. One question, though. If he lifts Criminal, how will they restock the fridge? One snapdragon isn't really enough to keep them ALL alive, is it?

I really look forward to seeing more of this!

Oh! Thanks Sam, thats a good idea! And the cc skin might be causing it, yeah. Though I've never had this problem with that particular skin before. Or maybe I have and just don't remember it? *Shrug*

Spoiler:
Michelle, hahahaha it can if cry hard enough! If I sell it the last Sunday before he reaches the top it should last until the kids are adults and have jobs. Then they'll be getting fed there instead of at home. Ive already found too that I don't have to feed them every day.

Thank you both so much for reading!! :D

May be up to a week until next update, rehearsals plus playing other games *cough* overwatch *cough* means not too much time for writing. I've played ahead though, so maybe I'll have time to sit down and crank out a chapter in the next few days?

This was hilarous!

Spoiler:
I'm glad to see I am not the only one with painful pets. In addition, creepy stalker types.

Stake Guy: “Ahh, yup. This is the place to stand. Such a good place. I’m just gonna keep standing right here.”

DIE ALREADY!!! You’re RUINING IT!!!

LOL. And I was thinking, vampires in an apocalypse. Now that's brave!

Finally I bring a new update after a freaking YEAR. Almost exactly actually, which is kinda weird.

Many apologies for the hiatus, all is explained within.

HAPPY TO BE BACK
