Thanks for the comments everyone!

Riss
Spoiler:
I totally get that! I'm usually all about the perfect lives as well, but I wanted to change things up on the Island since that makes things a bit more lively :D I guess we'll all have to wait and see what happens between Eric and Lilly :) I have my ideas about it, but I also look at their wants and behaviour.


Lorin
Spoiler:
Thanks Lorin! That was exactly my aim. :) I like my Sims to have perfect lives, but I figured things need to be shaken up a bit on the Island!
I guess we'll have to wait and see! I always look at my Sims' wants and fears, but I also have some ideas about what I want to happen in their situation... Maybe they'll line up? I don't know yet!


Michelle
Spoiler:
Thanks for your lovely comment, Michelle! Exactly! The Island needs some more drama, but drama can be small drama as well. Eric is torn up about the whole situation, so for him it's probably high drama. But he does what he thinks is right. :)
Yes, I do have ACR installed. It can spice things up quite a bit :lol:
That time clock is such a life safer! I was SO annoyed by the whole "call in employees" thing and then they all come. That's not useful or realistic at all.


Raebeth
Spoiler:
Thanks Raebeth!
She doesn't, does she? She wants to be, but she's a bit too self-centred and lets Phil guide her too much.
I love Lilly so much, I just had her be a playable in the game, so this seemed like a pretty neat solution. :D I'm looking forward to playing both Eric and Lilly again and seeing what they'll get up to. :) I have my ideas about it, but I don't want to steer them TOO much - I'll also look at their wants and fears.

Woo, update! :D
Spoiler:
Nice that Elijah and Camryn's household has a bit of challenge already built-in, and yeah! businesses are perfect for her LTW! Camryn Lee is one of my favorites, and I'm glad to see her have a bit more normal of a life on Blueberry than MV :shifty:
Man, I see you and other players reaching lifetime aspirational permaplat, and I still haven't managed that yet. Oh well, something else to work toward... :plumbob2:
I love the sense of community when Blueberry's residents get together at weddings, etc. It's feeling like a real place!

Just read Walker 2 - and again, it's just slice of life, no major drama, and still very interesting. I really like just watching the neighborhood expand, without worrying about stuff. It's relaxing. Blueberry Island is just so nice and chill.

Great update!
Spoiler:
I love Camryn, and made a promise years ago to marry her into my own game sometime. Unfortunately, I have yet to keep that promise. Glad to see her getting moved into other neighborhoods! Now that they've had their wedding party, maybe they'll have the want to Meet Someone New...a very young Someone...

Lorin
Spoiler:
Camryn is a really cool Sim, and so pretty too :)
Wow, really? How strange! My Sims seem to reach permaplat just for being alive, if they've been born in game at least.
Thanks Lorin! :D That's exactly what I'm going for, and also what I like about the Island so much! :)


Pony
Spoiler:
I love them together as well! They feel like a no nonsense couple to me. :) And I love exploring all the different businesses you can run in this BaCC :)


Michelle
Spoiler:
Thanks Michelle! Although I want to add a little more drama here and there, I enjoy the nice and chill thing about the Island as well :)


Raebeth
Spoiler:
She's such a pretty Sim, isn't she? :) Ha, who knows... ;) Thanks for your comment!

Spoiler:
I'm glad Sarah is having an easier time. Flower shops are one of my favorites, not just for the snapdragons. The inventory is inexpensive so lesser income families can run it with ease. Where did you find the elder job hack? It seems like a good addition to my game. Caryl is a teen yay! Sim kids grow up so fast.

Spoiler:
Yes, flower shops are one of my favourites too! Besides the reasons you mentioned, it's also just such a cheerful and pretty shop ^_^
The elder job hack is one from MATY and it's called noagediscrimination. I'm really happy with it in my game. Now elders can also actually try to reach career related LTWs.

Great update!

Spoiler:
I like Sarah, and aged her down to marry her into one of my 'hoods. Glad she's doing well here also! And glad Caryl's doing well. She's got an interesting face, in a good way.

Nice update, I like the different Dawson 2 family structure, and that they're living in an apartment!
Spoiler:
Magnolia Market is a nice name for a flower shop, and I also like the flower fencing you chose, I kinda forget that it's there.

Financially-strapped families are fun to play between more well-off families, and certainly give more meaning to those little monetary school awards.

I count owned and NPC community lots toward the "every 5 businesses" SM point. The military base is the only one that doesn't count.

Raebeth
Spoiler:
Thank you! I like Sarah as well, but I'm glad I gave the couple a kid, because playing elders is so boring :') I really like Caryl too!


Lorin
Spoiler:
Thanks, Lorin! I like the name as well :) I'm sort of using song names for the businesses (but low key) - Magnolia Market is named after Magnolia by JJ Cale :)
Yeah, I don't know how I didn't realise earlier that it's simply "community lots" and not "businesses". Oh well, now I know!

Spoiler:
I just got all caught up again. I reread sometimes just because I like watching the neighborhood grow :D. I love Lilly so much, I married her in with Ethan in Arbor Watch. And she's on the list to marry in again in Silver Bend. I can't wait to see what happens with her and Eric.

All caught up, congrats on finishing another season!

Spoiler:
Caroline and Claire make a cute couple. Nice use of the dormer window on the house. I haven't used dormers yet, but I've always loved the look of them.

Lilly and Eric have a rather unique relationship, but it seems to work for them, at least for now. It'll be interesting to see how things shake out with Emily as she gets older.

Nice updates, I like seeing a variety of family setups. :)

Hooray for more Blueberry Island, and congrats on all that good RL stuff! :drinks:

I enjoyed revisiting your Nice Family Robinson. Isaac is too cute, loved him sleeping in Lemon's bed! Ben is cute too, it was sweet seeing him want to retire - after all those years of hard work, gotta take some time to smell the roses and enjoy the family :)

Thanks for posting a neighborhood shot, I like seeing how BaCC hoods come together.
