Simply, what's going on with your beloved sims?

Are families florishing, Premade's living the life... or is something else happening?

Teaching my little brother how to play the sims. Luckily no one has died, but there's been a few big sisters to the rescues.
Thank so much Thai for the siggy!

Right now I'm playing my undocumented genetacy. Gen 2/B is growing up, they range from teen to infant atm, and I still have some Gen 1/A's to get through college and started on their own lots. I'm bombarded with family and knowledge sims right now, and it's kind of driving me nuts, even though they are my favorite aspirations. One of Gen 2/B's spouses is due to die next rotation, he moved in as an elder. Adam and Eve are still alive and kicking, only half of their elder years are gone or thereabouts. They ended up with about 12 children, including one alien child. Trips and Quads adores my game, I swear! Plantsims are invading my neighborhood - most of my sims are rolling up the want to become one, and the ones who have like to prank others and turn them into plantsims!

Going to be doing an uninstall/reinstall here soon, since I just got the Ultimate Collection. Still working out some kinks with the laptop, but hoping to do some documented challenges soon! :)

Well right now I have an everyone has to stargaze until they've been abducted rule in my current hood, which has resulted in some hilarity!

See everyone seemed to be getting abducted that didn't want to, or did want to and already has, but not Loki. Vidcund, has a baby wants to get abducted again, summons aliens, gets abducted right away. I sigh about poor Loki and his locked baby want, and his constantly reappearing abduction want. Johnny Smith and William Williamson both have permanent abduction fears, they get abducted. Poor Loki I say to myself as I load his lot. Night comes, him and Circe get home from work and get their needs met. Send her up to search for planets, and him up to summon aliens. And... Circe get's abducted! :rotfl: I have to pause the game so I can have a laughing fit, which wakes the baby, whoops! Well then I send Loki to try summoning the aliens on his wife's telescope, and a bit less than two sim hours later he gets abducted! She comes back pregnant with twins, I have the mod that let's both genders get impregnated by aliens, and then he comes back with a single. The Beaker household is going to be innnnteresting! :D

I did the same thing just a few weeks ago. I didn't have as much success as you (as there were quite a few... accidents), but I think I've gotten him hooked. Thank goodness for the Ultimate Collection coming out when it did, otherwise I'd have a hefty shopping list this Christmas!

I've never attempted a genetacy before. I'll have to look up the rules because it sounds really interesting! I didn't even know that triplets and quadruplets were an option in the Sims 2, though I'm guessing that's a mod. I've actually never had a natural Plantsim creation in my game, even after ten years of playing it. It has to do with spraying the plants from Seasons, right?

Wow, I can just imagine the soap opera drama that's going to happen once all those alien babies grow up and realize they're all half-siblings. :haha:

Well, I'm doing a round-robin style playthrough of my Megahood right now. I play every pre-made family for an in-game week, and then I start all over again. I'm on my third round now, so there's some pretty wacky stuff going on. I'm pretty sure that playing all the teens through college is going to take forever, but I might just alleviate that by only doing that for Knowledge/Fortune Sims or for the ones whose LTW are for a job that needs a diploma. Hmm...

I finally got Rean Greenleaf through his fifty first dates right before he hit his Junior year of College, thinking that he would roll up a career LTW and I could quickly drop him in that major... no. He rolled Fifty Dream Dates as his new Lifetime want! :popeye: Thank goodness his brand new boyfriend is a keeper....

Meanwhile I have the second enormous college rotation done and the chapter written, so it's off to proofreading... tomorrow.

At the moment, the elder husband of one of my Gen A/1 children just kicked the bucket, but not without leaving her a surprise! Got some setting up to do of other hoods, and am currently starting the tedious task of going through my CC and getting rid of the broken stuff - and will probably download more cause I'm addicted that way. :roll:

I'm building a completely new neighborhood.

I do that (by guess) monthly because something in my old neighborhoods tripped me up and placing trees calms me down for some reason (even though I hate every second of it).
It's called Witchwood Valley this time and I try to make it somewhat magical.
Btw, if some of you guys like building CC-less Woodcabin-like homes, I wouldn't complain at all :D

I am playing an Uberhood for the first time. I've played it all for one rotation so far (one week), and have just played most of Pleasantview through it's second rotation. I'm trying not to marry in any townies and just stick with the pre-mades, and I'm loving the couple combinations that are coming up and the adorable babies they will produce! So far Chloe Curious has had a gorgeous little boy with Oberon Gossamer, and now has another one with Don Lothario, Brandi Broke and Darren Dreamer just keep making babies of their own accord (3 bolts!) and Cassandra Goth has married Gabe O'Mackey and moved into his little farmhouse. :)

Except for my Havencrest, I've purged all my other neighborhoods and is starting from scratch. And from scratch, I mean trying a hand at creating a Megahood, an Uberhood, and a Legacyhood for my challenges. And so far, my game is not agreeing with me because keeps on crashing whenever I try to add new contents to the Downloads folder. :banghead:

So while I'm in constant :fight: with my computer to figure out the corrupted content (which will probably take a week or two depending on how many corrupted files there are), at least I'll be worrying free about building houses and creating the sims. I'm a horrible sim creator and house huilders, so all my contents will be made by other simmers. So a shout out to them. Thank you for sharing! :drinks:

haha. sorry for ranting here, but it's better for me to rant here than pull out all my hair. :rotfl: Hopefully, I'll get to join you guys by the end of this week. "Fingers crossed* :wave:

After much hoop-jumping, waiting and ranting, I've finally installed Sims 2 ON SOMETHING THAT CAN ACTUALLY HANDLE THE GRAPHICS.
I playtested it today.
Image
Meet Barney Stinson, the newest Romance/Fortune sim in Desiderata Valley.
Image
I moved him in with what's-her-face Natasha Una because why not. Plus I want to see ginger nooboos. I tried going for a dream date, but the wants were mostly related to grill-cheese, money or interactions that weren't unlocked yet (spot on Barney :P )
Image
Of course I made him socialize w/ every possible aspiration fodder that walked by. Natasha invited the Aspirs over, and get this: She had all kinds of romantic interactions available for Victor, who according to the family tree is her cousin's son. #EAxis
Side note: Guess three times who in this picture knocked the trashcan over.
Image
Sharon and Barney had instantly three bolts and went on a date far from Natasha's eye. Turns out she and John Mole had been mutually crushing each other. Whoops.
Image
Even though the date was over I decided to let Barney go hunting. Glad UC went for this guy instead of him xD
There's no photo evidence, but an evil witch appeared on the lot twice. Her lightning scared the sh*t out of me.

Playtest 2:
Image
Natasha is now a Romance sim with Grilled Cheese secondary. Pescado's romancemod makes it so that sims (Romance, at least) can canoodle as much as they like without slapping and "cheated on"-memories as long as they're not in a commitment (steady/engaged/marriage). Thus I managed to have two dates going on at the same time: Natasha x John and Barney x Sharon. Both couples had woohoo wants so it turned into a race xD Barnaron won.
That face-glitch though :haha:
Image
Wonder what it feels like for John to make out with someone who throws up like 3 times in one date. How come my preggies always have it so tough?
"Wait, did you say I'm pregnant? I thought it was just the spoiled cheese I ate..."
Indeed you are. *fingers crossed for redhead instead of blonde*
Image
I just wanna point out that Natasha (who I keep calling Una) is a really beautiful pregnant lady.
Image
Dates were ended, work was gone to, woohoo was had. John had come by to leave the date flowers and had his heart broken again. Though when Una invited him over he gladly accepted :roll:

Tomorrow, Operation Transatlanticism will commence... And after that, the madness continues ;)

Not much new to report - Proudmoore's are growing by leaps and bounds, even though this rotation feels like it's taking FOREVER! Fortunately all the Gen 1/A's will be out of college at the end of this rotation, while the Gen 2/B's are already moving in for their turn. I'm sort of dreading when all the Gen 2/B's start their own households - that's going to be one super long rotation, with every household just about having at least 4 kids when they only need 3. Trips and Quads are strong in my game.

I decided I wanted to play something with no restrictions at all (since I usually play apocs or baccs) The rules I made up for myself was that the family had to move every time they had enough cash to buy the next house size up. So Carrie started off on an extreme lot, which was not allowed to have a house and moved as soon as she could afford the smallest house (and then I family fund away the amount of money they originally spent on their lot). She invited Tyson to move in once she was in a house. They've since moved again to the $35,000 area. They've had two girls, Catherine and Cassie. A second rule is that all girls must be named with the same first letter as the mother and the boys the same letter as the father, so the heir if I get that far should be the opposite sex as the founder. Carrie reached the top of the Athletics job before finally getting her dream job in Criminal and is working her way up there. Tyson wants 20 best friends, but he's usually at home taking care of the kids, so hasn't had a lot of time to go out and socialize.

I am playing a brand-new Legacy. It's called "Vanilla Legacy," since my game died, and I had to re-install, and am playing strictly vanilla.

So, my founder, Milla Vanilla, is almost finished with college, and has just sold-off her first business. I like building them up, and selling them off for the bonus you get for whatever level you have. A level 10 business gets a $50,000 bonus! SWEET! Doing the happy-rich-sim dance.

Milla, however, doesn't give a hoot, because she's a "Family" sim, who keeps rolling wants to romance sims who are NOT her fiancé. She just keeps wanting to cheat! Arrrghhh. I refuse to allow it, however. Hopefully, I can break her of the habit, and she'll roll some fulfillable wants.

Thankfully, she has dates with her hubby-to-be, and rolls wants for him, while they are actually ON the date, so she has her aspiration fodder that way. But, MAN! Every time I need to get her out of the red, the only option is to invite him on a date, at her house, inside, where no passers-by can see and become jealous. That's already happened, once, and I don't want to tank all her previous relationships, now that she's found Mr. Three-Bolts.

It's been a loooong time since I had my sims 2 going but I'm finally having some play time!

I made a new sim me (which I stupidly forgot to package up) and she is a wanton hussy who didn't get married but has had a couple of kids with different men!! Only one generation on so far, but it's fun.

They've just got a load of money from all the skills and jobs and stuff so I've just moved the family into a nice big house. I'll update soon!!

(Sorry this is massively boring!) :duh:

^NOT boring. Reminds me of Patty Pregnancy, only she didn't bother with raising them once she had them .lol.

In my game at home I've been going around to different hoods and doing some maintenance, including fixing a couple of lots in Pleasantview where the lot would just continue to load and load and never get there. Had I known how to fix this a long time ago, we might still have Winklebottom Rutabega and his merry crew. :-(

In my Freshnfruity legacy (not at home), I have begun serious work on Chapter 7, complete with a special intro that readers may find amusing, especially if they recall intros like it I have done in the past. I have loads of pictures to put with captions, so I'm looking forward to seeing what page number I end up at when they're all in. :-)

I just got super excited! I'm playing my uberhood and earlier in the rotation Alexander Goth grew up as a gay romance sim and I was worried he'd struggle to find any partner at all (let alone the 20 that he wants), he hadn't met anyone he had chemistry with by the end of his rotation. But I just loaded up the Grunt household and Buck has met Alexander at a party at some point this rotation and they have 3 bolts! They even have the same hairstyle, match made in heaven :D
