Glad you like the apartment, Cher. I really don't do apartments, but do like the same creator's houses: Concrete 1 and especially Concrete 5. (I have eight Concrete 5 in my 'hood. Great for couples or singles, but not for families)

Good to see Mr. mac in your 'hood!

What a unique cube-shaped, concrete apartment complex, Cher!
Minimal amenities (What? No swimming pool? ), but definitely cool looking!

I like what you have done to Elle's pink pad. It turned out nicely & is quite pinkalicious.
I think our pink lovin' Elle would like it, too.
I see some of my recolors and I thank you for your support.
It's always so exciting seeing something I've created in others' games.

The landlady brought in some pizza ... Elle bogarted it and ate it in her bedroom ...



Too funny! I don't know if you know this but our Elle is a huge pizza aficionado.
So SimElle's actions don't seem too far-fetched!

Quote :
You look mahvelous!

I'm lovin' those selfies she took!!! Is that the result of going into a photo booth?
My Sims have never done that.

Elle & Enrique are expecting a baby ... Awwww!!!

Sugah, those pictures do come from going in the photo booth. Sim Toni has done ... other things, without my permission ... in the photo booth as well. affraid I do often have my sims take pictures so I can put them in their houses. I particularly like to have them take a set of wedding pictures. The funny thing about this was that Elle took those pictures when I wasn't playing her! She must have done it while visiting a community lot when I had another active sim there.

Quote :

Somehow, I suspect LTW 50 Dream Dates Enrique is not going to be as excited about that baby.

I did it again with the pictures -- over 6. You asked what would be a better number and someone suggested 10 or 11, and I think I'd better agree with that! laughin

Speaking of too many pictures, here are the adventures of Mac.

Mac is a resident of the same apartments as Elle and David Cook. The fourth resident is Honey Nalesnik, a Townie. You can't necessarily see them all, but Mac has a lot of books, being a studious type of man. He's a Knowledge sim whose LTA is to max all his skills. He is currently employed as a Test Subject in the Science career.



He does take time out to socialize with the neighbors, mostly while playing chess. Who's that gorgeous creature? Honey Nalesnik!


Mac, I know you prefer a dancer in a knit dress, but ACR decided Sim Mac likes Honey and her brightly colored wardrobe. laughin On their date, one of Honey's wants was to marry Enrique! Still, she and Mac had a Dream Date and he wasted no time in proposing and asking her to move in. The next morning, they got married in a very small, private ceremony ...


... and then Honey was off to work.


In Isle of Demeter, I'm giving the knowledge sims and some of the others a college degree. Mac has a degree in Biology, while Honey has one in Poli Sci. She doesn't really care about a career, though, and currently employed in the Slacker career as a Record Store Clerk. She did let the Naughtly Llamas play as house band, and then had to pay $849 in damages after they wrecked the place. I guess the boss was OK with that, though, because he promoted her to Party DJ.

Mac is a nice guy, and he prepares breakfast since Honey is a bit under the weather. Or is she?


Meet Gemma and Jenna, Mac and Honey's twins. I didn't get very good pics of them this time.


That gets me caught up on Isle of Demeter. I've switched over to the Offspring Project, so it will be a while before I return to this hood.

I think I posted somewhere ... Please don't ask me where, I have no earthly clue   ...
That I know our loyal, devoted, active forum fam members would never spam w/ inconsequential images.
I trust those of you who have been with me sharing awhile. No worries, m'lady.    

I like the color scheme in Mac's apartment (shades of brown with a splash of blue thrown in).
One of our RL bedrooms here has similar colors & they look so appealing combined, don't they?
I particularly like the bedroom drapes, rug & bedding. So masculine! Whose is it, Cher?

The corner library is a neat idea (lotsa books for a studious fella).
And that water view from the living room is to die for, dahling!  

Wow! Honey Nalesnik is gorgeous! I have never seen her before.
I wonder if she comes with an EP I don't have...  

Welcome Jemma and Genna (I like those names mucho)!

My Offspring Project hood has a lot less custom content than Isle of Demeter. It loads up oh, so quickly. laughin In honor of this being a Sugah's Place exclusive project, all the custom walls, floors, and home furnishings are from right here at Sugah's, so you will probably recognize a lot of great stuff.  I kept most of my custom hairs and clothes, though. I used Pleasantview because I've never played in that hood, and it's a nice, small hood with reasonably priced homes.

I'm going to do it as Sugah did, with the main story here. I originally planned just to focus on having the children, but the stories kind of developed on their own and I'm interested in those as well as the genetics.

I had also originally planned to do as Nonni did, stick them all together and see what happened. I looked for Sims from different creators, and Sims that haven't been used so far. I did end up overlapping with Patrick because I already had him downloaded and in the game when I saw him on another thread. I thought I wouldn't pair Sims from the same creator, but I ended up doing it twice. The Sims I chose seemed to have natural partners based on what I imagined their personalities to be, and I couldn't make myself change it just for the sake of mixing up genes. Silly, because that's what the entire project is about!

The first couple in my Offspring Project hood is Jonah and Alyssa, both by Ari.

Alyssa is a Family Sim whose LTW is to have a Golden Anniversary (I'm looking forward to the Gypsy's visit!). She's a Cancer, 6-4-5-4-6 . Jonah is a Pleasure Sim whose LTW is to be a Professional Party Guest, top of the Slacker career. He's a Libra, 3-7-3-7-5.

Alyssa Sanders is a sweet young woman who loves children and wants a family. She was engaged, but was left at the altar by her fiancé.  


Embarassed, and not knowing what else to do, she moved to Pleasantview to start over. She got a job in the Education career to be near the children she thought she might never have, bought a little trailer, and fixed it up as much as she could on her meager wages. One day on a trip to the bookstore, Alyssa met a handsome young man freestyling on the sidewalk for tips. He wasn't very talented and didn't seem to be making any money, but she found his looks and attitude appealing. She's always played it safe in her life and where did that get her? Jonah was the slightly rebellious nonconformist (but not too intimidating) she sometimes wished she could be, and she was soon head over heels in love with him. He had been evicted from his apartment, so Alyssa invited him to move in with her and he quickly accepted.


Jonah Kent is not exactly a homebody like Alyssa, and he's a night owl. He often goes out clubbing at night, not coming home until 2 the next morning. Alyssa couldn't go even if she wanted to because she has to be at work early in the mornings. She does wish he wouldn't spend so much money at the clubs, since they had $16 between them when Jonah moved in, and he still hasn't found a job. It's a good thing she's doing well as a Teacher's Aide. Still, Alyssa has been very happy with Jonah.
Alyssa felt like she needed to get moving on having a family, but Jonah didn't seem inclined to ask her to marry him. Throwing caution (and birth control) to the wind, she soon found herself pregnant. This was on the same day she and Jonah became best friends. Nice.  laughin


They've made friends with some of their neighbors; Jonah finds it particularly easy to meet people and make friends with them. One of those friends, Elle's Avett Price, stopped by one day and got a little too friendly a little too quickly for Alyssa.



Since he doesn't work, it would be nice if Jonah picked up a little now and then, but overall, they're happy together.

Oh, Cher! You honor and flatter me and have absolutely made my entire week!!!
I'm excited!!!
I recognize a few of my CC sets already! Yaaaaay!  
Thank you so much for your ongoing support. It means so much.

I'm going to do it as Sugah did, with the main story here.  

That is actually how the rules for the Offspring project are set up, Lady C:

Quote :
3. Share an in game image (or 2) of the happy SP Sim couple(s), preferably up close and personal.
4. Share (in game) images of the offspring of the happy SP Sim couple(s), close up and front view, at different times in their lives (if possible).

Share the details, the fun stories & other snapshots of your SP Sims' lives in your game antics thread. This section is just for the results of our genetics experiments.

I don't know if everyone has read the rules thoroughly, but it was always my intention for the MAIN details (majority of back stories, every day lives & snapshots, etc) to be shared in our individual game antics threads.
So, you are absolutely starting out the way I'd originally intended it to be.
Grazie, dahling!

I often go that route. Sometimes you just have to go with what feels right, you know?

I haven't seen Alyssa in awhile. How neat that you chose her!
She looks lovely in that wedding gown. The schmuck that left her must've been a real loser to do so.
Good riddance to bad rubbish, I say! Alyssa is truly better off without him.  

Jonah has a bit of settling down and growing up to do, especially now that a baby is on the way.
If he's not working, the least he could do is pick up around the house and prepare meals for his lovely lady.
She can't do EVERYTHING!  
What's with the pouch on that precious dress she's wearing, btw? Too funny!

ThanksforSharing

Sugah, I forgot about your question regarding Sim Mac's bedroom; sorry. It's a recolor of Lirunchik's Fogerton bedroom at BPS. The links still work!

I have no idea where Honey came from, or if she's specific to an EP. I emptied the characters from my hoods before playing, and I use default replacement face templates in my game, so I don't get the truly horrific Maxis townies. I also use a default replacement for names, so most of my townies don't have the usual names.

I agree! Even though, as you said, Jonah has some growing up to do, it turns out he's a good daddy and loves Alyssa and his son.

Quote :

Right? I did a double take the first time I saw that. I think it's because the dress is actually a top. The invisible (or whatever) bottom must have a preg morph, while the top doesn't. That's my uneducated guess, anyway.

Back to Jonah and Alyssa:

Alyssa never had morning sickness, but she was HUNGRY the whole time she was pregnant. Once baby Nick was born, Jonah fell in love with his little family.




That doesn't mean he felt the need to go out and get a job, however. Nor does it mean he cleans anything up.  He does take very good care of Nick while Alyssa's at work, so that's something. He's also discovered he likes fishing, so maybe he'll bring home a fish for dinner now and then. If it's not too much work, that is.

I used to have that bedroom set mesh in my old puter game and have even done a couple recolors of it (Aqua Steel and Scandia Wasabi).
Duh!!!

I know, right? Don't knock yourself out on Alyssa and Nicky's account, Jonah.
Wouldn't want you to hurt yourself or sprain anything!  

BTW, Cher, I don't know if you saw this, but Elle added your Simself and info and Sandy's HERE in our SP Sidekick Chronicle thread on April 3rd. Yaaaaay!

Yes, hopefully this takes care of multiple Sims having names like Goopy. GOOPY, for Pete's sake. Who thought of that?

I did see that! I put Isle of Demeter on hold before I got a chance to play Sim Cher.  laughin

Meanwhile, in Sugah's Pleasantview:

The Lorrins are newlyweds Jen's Patrick and Kelly. I put them together because they both had a boy/girl next door thing (I see others noticed that, as well) going on and seemed more outdoorsy to me. Patrick is a Family Sim/Cancer with points allocated 4-4-7-5-5. Kelly is a Family Sim, also Cancer, with points 6-3-6-4-6. Patrick wants six grandchildren, while Kelly will be happy just to have three children graduate from college. They've been friends and sweethearts since 7th grade. Both have long wanted to have a little farm out in the country near a small town. Pleasantview seemed perfect. They were married as soon as they were old enough, and saved their money so they could buy a place with a little bit of land. They don't quite have enough to farm full time, but they can be patient about that. They probably won't be so patient about starting their family.

Literally 5 seconds after moving in --


As a former high school jock, Patrick has had no problems with his Athletic career (I can't remember what he'd been promoted to when I quit playing them), and he was excited to plant their very first crop of tomatoes.


Kelly was too tired to help, and I'm sure this is why.


She nearly starved to death twice. I could barely keep her fed fast enough. Like Alyssa, she had no morning sickness, just a huge appetite. Both Patrick and Kelly worked hard to bring in that first crop. About 2/3 of the crop was bland tomatoes, but the other 1/3 was tasty tomatoes! I think they will quickly be growing quality crops. Their first meal using their home gown tomatoes was a tasty bowl of tomato soup with rice. The link only takes you to the home page. If you want to look at any of the foods, you have to choose the language, then Downloads, then Hacks, then Foods. The tomato soup is on page 2. MAC! The pickled herring with watermelon is on page 9 and the jam and gherkin sandwich is on page 8. I was able to download both!  


Baby Marshall! I'm having the opposite situation you had, Sugah. My hood's offspring are all boys so far.


Marshall has already grown into a toddler (there's a close up picture of that in my Offspring Project thread. Kelly and Patrick are both hands-on, loving parents.

Evidently the same crackhead who decided personality traits for the game's astrological signs AND their compatibility charts, Cher.

Patrick and Kelly are quite darling.
I miss Jen's creations. She truly was a talented artist.

Do you tend to have a lot of Cancers in your game?
I looked at my Tres Lagos 'hood stats and it appears my Cancers are right up there with my Taurus Sims.
Lots more Family Sims than all the rest, too.
I'm trying to get better about a balance of each in my game.
(Hence the reason I've started documenting that sorta info in my 'hood.)

My daughter and grandgirl are here now.
I promise to finish responding properly after Parker leaves.

I'm back. I was pleasantly surprised that my nephew showed up, too.
He's such a doll. I adore him. I love you

I like Kelly's PJs by the way. They look familiar. Where have I seen those...

I'm really enjoying your Cher Shares AND Offspring Project, Lady C.

I actually don't. It just happened that the three Cancers in Sugah's Pleasantview all happened in a row. I had intended to have the Sims for this game be mostly Family or Knowledge, but I ended up assigning aspirations and points based on how I thought those Sims actually were. It sounds crazy maybe, but each of the Sims in this game seemed to already have a personality. When I spent time looking at them, an Aspiration came to mind and that, coupled with their appearance, determined where I assigned their Personality points. I also took time to work out their stories before playing them, which I didn't do in Isle of Demeter.

Looking over my cards for Isle of Demeter, without doing an actual count, it looks like I have a lot of Aquariuses. For that game, I didn't take as much time to study the Sims before creating them in the game. For the Sugah Babies, I used the information given. For the rest, I used The Sim Randomizer because I wanted to challenge myself to branch out with the Aspirations and Personalities. I often play only a couple of types of Sims and I wanted to get out of that rut. That's why Toni's Enrique and Sugah's Marguerita will probably not end up together, even though I intended for them to be a couple when I downloaded them.

Next up in Sugah's Pleasantview are Toni's Lenny ( ) and Sugah's Lilura. Apparently, I didn't take many pictures of them.

Lenny Kravitz is a Fortune Sim, a Libra with points 2-8-2-6-7. He wants to be a rock god (of course!). He saw Lilura in the front row at one of his gigs and sent a roadie out to invite her backstage. They hit it off immediately, and soon she had moved in with him. She looks forward to accompanying him on the road when he hits it big.


Lilura Nightshade is a Family Sim, an Aries with points 5-8-6-3-3. She is very interested in the occult and considers herself something of a psychic or a witch. Her cat (sometimes she refers to her as a familiar just to freak people out) is Zora Nightshade. Zora is a Virgo -- a Genius, Independent, and Finicky. She may look familiar to those of you who have seen her cousin, Minxy, in Sugah's game thread April 1 post.




Lilura wants a lot of kids (8 sounds about right to her), but Lenny would be happy with just one. Unfortunately, Lilura did not get pregnant in this rotation, so we'll have to wait a while to see what happens.

Lenny works in the music career. His career has been spotty because he has a tendency to stick to his principles and it has gotten him fired at times (once for refusing to sell bad music). At the end of this rotation, he is only a Summer Camp Music Teacher, but he's the coolest Summer Camp Music Teacher ever! He spends nearly all of his spare time playing guitar and romancing Lilura.

Lilura is employed in the Paranormal career, but her work ethic is not the best. She has been fired for sloppy research methods, but is currently a Tarot Card Reader.

Zara just got cast as an Extra in a movie, but has not yet reported for her first day of work. If she doesn't have the same problems Lenny and Lilura have at work, she'll probably be out-earning them in no time! laughin

This is precisely what I do more often than not, Cher!
If it sounds crazy, then you and I are BOTH a bit loco, chica!
I love it when I can just look at a Sim for awhile and sorta "feel" their sign, aspiration & destiny.

Aquarius & Cancer are only a couple of personality points away from each other in game.
I've noticed if I am wanting a certain personality for a Sim and I take away or add just a point or two, here and there...
Cancer can very quickly change to Aquarius and visa versa in CaS mode.
(Not in real life, however. )

Sometimes what we intend for our Sims and what inevitably becomes of them, is not always the same destiny, is it?

Lenny and Lilura!!! I am so honored that you have chosen another of my Sims, Cher. Thank you!

Zora Nightshade is Minxy's cousin! I love it!
Let's hope Zora has better work ethics than her human companions. laughin

So do I. I hadn't intended to play Sugah's Pleasantview in the same way I usually play a hood. I thought I'd just focus on makin' babies. It's not working out like that because these Sims are telling me they have a more comprehensive story than that, and I'm more invested in their lives because of it.

Quote :

My next couple is made up of Elle's Avett Price and Toni's Malika.

Avett is a Family Sim/Scorpio, 7-5-6-3-4. Malika is a Family Sim/Pisces, 5-4-5-3-8. Both are very career-oriented, but want a large family as well. Avett has been interested in politics for as long as he can remember, and I gave him a degree in Political Science. His career goal is to reach the top of the Politics career. I gave Malika a degree in Economics and she's in the Business career. Her LTW is to max out all her skills. Avett and Malika met while in University at a seminar on How to Buy Friends and Manipulate Others and quickly realized how much they had in common. Always sensible, they waited until they had graduated before getting married and setting about establishing their careers. Avett was pleased to buy their first house and made quite a production of it.


As most of my Family Sims tend to do, they immediately went in and checked out the sofa.


Avett seemed to know something was different even before Malika. The first meal he prepared, autonomously, was watermelon, pickles, and herring.


I think Malika figured it out after an exceptionally tiring day at work.

That, or he's not such a great friend. laughin I think he has little understanding for a man with a child who won't take any of the jobs available to him because they're not "fun."


Baby Elijah. Yet another male in Sugah's Pleasantview!


Malika does not want to derail her career, so the Prices have hired Nanny Lettie. Nanny Lettie is a bit odd, but she takes good care of Elijah and she even washes dishes and takes out the trash.

Who does she think is going to tip her?

She broke the TV, but did enjoy the repairman's visit. laughin


Avett and Malika came home after the first day and, apparently, Nanny Lettie had had a rough day and needed a refreshing beverage.


Guess what happened the day after Elijah was born?


At the end of this rotation, Avett had become a Lobbyist and Malika is a Field Sales Rep. Avett has had a few career ups and downs because he has a little too much initiative at times, but his ambition has made it easy for him to recover from the little bobbles. Malika has been advancing as quickly as a woman who spends most of her time on maternity leave can. Malika and Avett did not start out having triple attraction bolts for each, but somewhere along the way they developed.

As am I, dear lady.  

Cher, I forgot to comment on how INTENSE and BOLD my Mardi Gras Walls (at least I think it's them) look in game (Re: Lenny and Lilura's place). Woah!!!
If I'm remembering correctly, I created them on my old laptop.
Things appeared smaller and darker on that little laptop's monitor and I was always surprised at how differently my creations appeared when viewed on a better, bigger monitor.
The Mardi Gras set is no exception!
I like bold colors sometimes, don't get me wrong. They certainly fit certain Sims' styles.
I thank you for using my walls in your game.



Speaking of...

I see my Owl Party & Metro Goes Au Naturel walls and Living Room sets, too!!!
Metro Goes Au Naturel is actually my MOST downloaded set. It's very popular, as are the coordinating walls.
I am glad Avett and Malika like the sets, too! girlwinkin

Yes, it's the Mardi Gras set. I thought it suited Lenny and Lilura -- a little wild! Did you notice how it actually reflects the wall color onto their skin, tinting it slightly?

I'm not surprised, although there are so many fantastic sets here. The Metro Goes Au Natural is a set that isn't too girly, but isn't too masculine either. I love the earthy tones in it.

Can you believe it?! I had just put the beer in my game. I was so stunned by it I've told Randy and other family members how my Sims' Nanny just sat around drinking a beer near the end of her shift. Not that they care, but sometimes I just have to share what's happened in my game.

You discussed Avett's sexuality in the Offspring thread, so I'll address it more in-depth there, but have you noticed he's the one fixing pregnancy food for Malika, and taking care of the house? laughin

Before I get back to my game, I just want to give Em a giant THANK YOU! Thanks to your tutorial, Paloma 1.0 lives!  She's a teen, but once I had extracted her, I also packaged her aged up to a young adult. I'm not sure where and when I want to add her to Sugah's Pleasantview, so she's installed in my game as both.

I'm back to Jonah Kent and Alyssa Sanders. I only have four couples in this game, so the offspring will all be related in a generation or two, but I'm not inspired to add any more couples at the moment. I'll just add new Sugah's Place Sims as necessary to keep the gene pool fresh.

Despite Jonah's lazy ways, the romance is still very much alive.


Nick grew into a toddler. Here's Alyssa with one my favorite autonomous interactions.


I love the look on Nick's face in this shot.


Lenny came to visit and spent more time with Nick than with Alyssa or Jonah.  laughin He's wearing a suit, so he must have come over straight from work.


This picture says a thousand words, doesn't it?

Alyssa's expression is very interesting. I think she loves Jonah and her family, but she wishes Jonah would grow up. I'm sure she's also wondering how she'll ever reach a golden anniversary if she's not married.


After a blunt talking-to from Avett Price, Jonah has determined to do better by Alyssa. He finally got a job in the Slacker career, and has been steadily working his way through a series of ever-better positions. None pay very well, but at least he's staying employed. At the end of this rotation, he is a Projectionist. Alyssa has been promoted to Elementary School Teacher. They can't afford a nanny, so Alyssa has had to use a lot of vacation time in order to take care of Jonah as a baby and a toddler.

Nick grew into a child on Winter's Eve. He seemed to enjoy the tree a lot. Now that he's in school, Alyssa will be able to go back to work.



Edited because I forgot to mention that Nick is a Capricorn, 10-2-3-10-9. I've never seen numbers like that on a born-in-game Sim! 10 neat? 9 nice??? Not that I'm complaining.

Patrick and Kelly spent some of this rotation gaining skills, and a lot of it teaching Marshall what he needs to know. I don't have any more pictures of Marshall as a toddler, but by the time he became a child, he'd maxed out his charisma, his logic was 8, and his creativity 2. Smart milk is wonderful, and Kelly was in Platinum enough to use it several times. There's a close-up of Marshall as a child in my Offspring Project thread.

It's now Autumn and Winter, so there is no farming to do. Patrick stays in the Athletic career, hoping to earn enough money to expand the farm in Spring, maybe even enough to retire and farm full time. It's not looking good for that, though, because children can be expensive and Kelly is pregnant again.



Marshall is a Taurus, 7-7-9-10-1. Now that's the grouchy born-in-game Sim I'm used to! Kelly spent a lot of time teaching Marshall to be nicer.



One of my favorite things, and one that doesn't seem to work out very often, is having my Sims sit down to a meal together. In this case, it's breakfast, and the only one who bothered to get dressed was Marshall.



Everyone was excited by the new baby, Forest. Yes, another boy. There are now four boys (Nick, Marshall, Elijah, and Forest) in this generation, and no girls. I'm getting worried!

But I think I shared in another thread I now have 4 girls and 2 boys.

Welcome, wee Forest!!!

It's always so much fun visiting your game antics, whether in Cher Shares or your Offspring Project threads, Lady C.

I do use the "wear anything" hack, and I also have a lot of default replacements in my game. I can't believe I didn't know about those until a little over a year ago. A lot of custom clothes don't have a preg morph, so I often change those when a Sim is pregnant. Just this week, I added the Classic Pajama defaults, which I think look cute with the preg morph.

I've been playing a full Sim week -- 8:00 Monday morning to 8:00 the next Monday morning. I just now remembered I was going to play just a season, which is five days with the calendar I use. I got into playing and forgot I was going to do that.  

Quote :

I was lucky Kelly could even make Smart Milk. This first generation is tough because they mostly aren't in Platinum. I've had no visits from the Gypsy to drop off lamps. How do I get her to show up again?

I have GunMod's Radiance installed in my game, which is supposed to be more realistic lighting. I like what it does with the outdoor lighting a lot, but it seems my indoor lighting is often dim. When I remember, I add lights in order to take some of the pictures. That might also be why some of the darker walls add a bit of a tinted cast to the Sims' skins.  

Quote :

Thank you for saying so. I've enjoyed everyone's threads a lot, and I've learned a lot about story development and picture-taking from them.

Randy is out of town ordering a new fire truck (actually doing the final "pre-order" inspection, whatever that means), so I've had a lot of time to play the last couple of days. There are thunder storms in the forecast from tonight through Saturday, so I may or may not be online much. In the meantime, Lenny and Lilura finally got their family started.

Lenny continues to have ups and downs with his career. In his defense, sorta, it's because he won't compromise when it comes to music. He started this rotation as a Summer Camp Music Teacher, but was demoted for refusing to play what the Camp Director wanted and choosing a better song instead. It was back to the record store for him, where he was fined for trying to wake up his co-workers with a lively dance party. Then he was fired for judging a music contest in favor of talent over flash. Why do people in the industry have such a hard time understanding Lenny?! He was hilarious when he came home -- threw a little tantrum and kicked the air. I've never seen that extreme a reaction to being fired; I wish I'd gotten a picture of it. Lenny won't be deterred from his dream, and got right back in the business. He's not afraid to start from the bottom no matter how many times it takes. He ended this rotation right where he started, as a Summer Camp Music Teacher.



Lilura had advanced to the level of Medium before she finally got pregnant. She still tried to work as much as she could, but it was very tiring. The bed was so close, yet so far away!



Lilura gave birth to (finally!) Sugah's Pleasantview's first girl, Astraea. There's a close-up of her here. Lenny did the woohoo, but that's not exactly a smile on his face, is it?



I think Lilura, who wants about 8 kids if you remember, likes the idea of a large family more than she likes actually taking care of a family. She's also certain that, as a soon-to-be-famous psychic with a soon-to-be-famous baby daddy, they need more than just a nanny; they need a household manager. She immediately hired Butler Marco Tsang.



Zara found it difficult to get her humans to spend much time training her, but she did manage to get a promotion to Extra in the Show Biz career.



She likes to hunt, but then she just leaves the carcass because she's too finicky to eat it. Rolling Eyes

I found this in answer to your query, but I honestly do not know how accurate the information is:

The Sims Wiki wrote:
To be awarded the genie, one or more Sims in the household must have high enthusiasm in a hobby and high Lifetime Aspiration, which will summon the Gypsy Matchmaker to deliver the lamp. For each Sim with a Lifetime Aspiration level of 7 or higher, there is a 2% chance (per day) that the matchmaker will bring the lamp. The Gypsy Matchmaker may eventually deliver the lamp even if it is meant to belong to a Sim's dormmates, roommate, neighbor in the same apartment, or even a visiting Sim...

...While receiving the lamp at all is unlikely, receiving it is not necessarily a once-in-a-lifetime event. A Sim who has moved out of a household that received a lamp may receive another one, even if he or she received the memory of finding the lamp. Also, a household that received a lamp more than 14 Sim days ago is eligible to receive another one.

Just so I understand what you've shared ... a season in Sims 2 is only five days?
And you are currently playing each Sim rotation in your game at seven days?
(I don't play with Seasons, you may recall.)

Well if I were a terribly misunderstood musician, constantly getting demoted, fined and fired, I'd probably feel compelled to throw a fit eventually myself!  
Gotta love his tenacity and willing to pick himself up and get back in the biz again, don't you?
You go, Lenny! Don't compromise your music and work ethics for anyone!!!

Do you like the butlers in game, Cher? They are useful? Dependable? Worth the Simoleons?

Woah! What EP allowed Pets to HUNT? I don't think I have that option in my game.
And if I DO, I haven't seen it yet. Good catch, Zara!

Thank you for finding that. It's interesting because it sounds like the Gypsy's visits are pretty rare. In Pirri Pirri, they weren't rare at all, but I don't remember what it was like before I played that hood. Even my Uni kids got lamps handed out on a regular basis. If I don't get any Gypsy visits, I guess I can either cheat for a platinum aspiration (which I don't like to do), change the Sim's LTW, or live without the benefits. Since I usually extend the lifespans with the green elixir, the platinum really only matters when I'm trying to use things like the Smart Milk.

Quote :
Just so I understand what you've shared ... a season in Sims 2 is only five days?
And you are currently playing each Sim rotation in your game at seven days?

According to the booklet that came with my Seasons disc, "Most seasons last for around five days, but sometimes Winter seems to stretch on longer and longer and you may get unseasonably warm weather when you're expecting the crisp days of Autumn. Regardless of how you plan your neighborhood's seasons, the seasons slowly change as the next approaches, mixing elements of both until the first season passes into the next."

The length of a season is slightly variable. However, I use this calendar. It sounds like it's possible to use the 12 day calendar whether or not you have Seasons, and the 20 day calendars are created for players with Seasons. I use the 20 day calendar with holidays, which makes each season five days. It works the same as the original seasons, though, in that there is a bit of mixing of the seasons during the days near a change. For example, there can be a light snow in the first day or two of Spring. The holidays are just fun, and the kids get a day off school for Winter's Day.

So, I had thought I'd play a season, or five days, at a time, just for a change. Then I forgot, and played seven days like I usually do. I think I'll stick with seven days. If I had been playing five days at a time, I would have had to play two rotations for several of the couples before there were any offspring to show.

Quote :
Gotta love his tenacity and willing to pick himself up and get back in the biz again, don't you?

One of my favorite Sims in the game that went kablooey, before I played the Pirri Pirri hood, was Pierre. He also wanted to be a Rock God, and actually achieved it more than once. He had six kids with his wife, and one with the neighbor lady. affraid  He was fired the day before he became an elder and so had no pension. He felt bad about letting his family donw. He was a sad man who spent all his spare time playing guitar and reliving his glory days. That was my first experience with a Sim autonomously doing anything besides taking care of the necessities. Hopefully, things will work out better for Lenny.

Quote :
Do you like the butlers in game, Cher? They are useful? Dependable? Worth the Simoleons?

I've only had a butler once before this. It was for a family in a huge house, with the parents, two children, and all four grandparents living together. He was very dependable, but had a tendency to just keep serving meals when he had nothing else to do. I'd have to keep making someone put away the leftovers (which I think is a function that came with Seasons, maybe?) until the fridge ran out of food. Sometimes I just turned the refrigerator around so he couldn't get into it, then I'd turn it back when a playable Sim needed to eat. The family was large and wealthy, and the butler was definitely worth the Simoleans.

Butlers will call to have groceries delivered and hire an exterminator when necessary. He will also call the police or fire department when necessary. He cleans, but he also cooks, looks after the kids, repairs broken things, and does the gardening for players with Seasons. He's there from 7 a.m. until 8 p.m. He costs more than a maid, gardener, and nanny combined, but he doesn't leave when there's nothing for him to do. Instead, he's there for those hours, so he's available immediately when something needs to be done. He can also be told to allow no visitors, greet all visitors and invite them in, or leave the decision up to you.

Lilura jumped the gun by hiring a butler when the house and family are so small, but it's her way. Go big or go home. It's likely to cause problems because he's expensive, which will make it harder for them to save money. Lenny wants to live in a bigger, better house. He wants a car. He wants more stuff. When he makes it big, he will want a fabulous mansion.

Quote :
Woah! What EP allowed Pets to HUNT? I don't think I have that option in my game.

It's actually a mod called Au Naturel Pet Food from Plumb Bob Keep. I didn't change my mods when I created a new game for Sugah's Pleasantview; I just copied my Mods and Hacks folder from the Isle of Demeter game. Since I planned Isle of Demeter to include some serious farming and ranching, and there is a mountain zone, and a Gypsy encampment, I have a lot of mods related to those things. There are a lot of crops that weren't included with Seasons, a lot of farm animals and the ability to chop wood from Affinity, and some mods meant for dogs and cats that won't have as cushy a life as Zara does. I was just testing out the Au Naturel mod to see how it works. I don't play a medieval game, but many of the crafting stations and other things will be useful for some of the zones I have set up.

As always, thank you for stopping by and taking an interest in my game!

I had no idea the butler does all the things you listed. WOW!
Does he call for groceries & the exterminator, the police or fire department as needed without being prompted?
All on his own? If so, that's impressive!  

BTW, I think leftovers DID come with Seasons, but it was an option, thereafter.
In other words, the leftovers function was rolled into later EPs after Seasons.

Lilura's Way: Go big or go home.

Haha! I'm lovin' that!

You've got me curious about just how much a butler costs now.
You said he's more expensive than all the help combined (nanny + gardner + maid).
But it sounds like, if a family can afford him, he may be worth it...ESP. if he does all chores you mentioned autonomously!

OMG! That mod for Au Naturel Pet Food is AWESOME!
How creative! And all the critter options! Woah!
I don't play with many mods or hacks, but I may have to try that one out just to see it in game.

Oh, wow, there's been so much going on in this thread that I missed!

I'm enjoying the more detailed back stories for the sims in your project. I sure hope Jonah shapes up, for Alyssa's sake. I like what a quirky couple Lenny and Lilura are. (I missed her somehow when searching for sims. She's very pretty.)

Is it just me or do Nanny Lettie and the repairman seem like they would make a cute couple? laughin So funny that she just helps herself to a beer while on the job. affraid

Quote :
It sounds crazy maybe, but each of the Sims in this game seemed to already have a personality. When I spent time looking at them, an Aspiration came to mind and that, coupled with their appearance, determined where I assigned their Personality points.

That's what I did too, though in hindsight, I guess it would have been better for the project had I made them mostly family sims.

That's funny. My sims hired a butler recently, for the first time ever, and he would only cook breakfast. Usually no one would be hungry or have time to eat so it went to waste. Then he wouldn't cook again for the rest of the day, even if it was dinner time and no one was hungry. Usually I ended up dismissing the butler, because he spend most of the day just wandering around with nothing to do.
