I want to make a self-sim, though I don't like any of the skins I've found.

What, in particular, are you looking for, Cher? You might want to post a request for some help in our Q & A section. We have a couple of gals here who probably have some awesome bodyshop CC in their games, who can help, no doubt!

Cher, I really like the gypsy camp idea and your separate coastal region (sorta Florida ), but I especially like those SW style apartments. They look terrific!
And I am extremely flattered that you have downloaded and moved my Marguerita into your fabulous complex.
I love the hair you chose for her. It's lovely!
Here's hoping she and the snack-o-licious Enrique have all kinds of chemistry, as I think they'd make a gorgeous couple and have very pretty babies (like Ella and Jack). I love you
Thank you so much for downloading Marguerita and for your ongoing support. It means so much.

ThankUforSharing

Spoiler: They definitely had chemistry! I think I'll probably recreate Ella and Jack as a couple, with all the same stats, and put them in the Isle of Demeter hood. I really like them together.

Mountaintop section:


Marguerita spent her first day in her new apartment finding a job (Dance career), swimming, and meeting some neighbors. Later, she had a little snack and a nap.


After resting up, she visited The Plaza, where she met Enrique and Toni.



Later, Enrique met up with Marguerita at the mailbox and asked her out on a date.

They went dancing at The Plaza, then back to Enrique's place where they got along very, very well.


No pictures, but both took the first step toward fulfilling their LTWs. For Marguerita, a Romance sim, that means having 20 simultaneous lovers. For Enrique, a Popluarity sim, it means 50 dream dates. Which is ridiculous. Not that 20 simultaneous lovers isn't ridiculous. I hope the gypsy drops off a lamp in the near future. laughin

Love the pics of your 'hood and I'm looking forward to hearing of your sims' adventures.
Regarding LTW, I use the appropriate LTW for the Maxis careers. For the non-Maxis, I favor 20 best friends or 100K simoleans. I've also done max out all 7 skills (difficult) and (once) 20 woohoos - a lot of work bluwhew!

You can use The Sim Blender to pick the LTW you want. (Not all are available for all aspirations, but you can change aspiration then change back) Also good for name changes and setting family relationships.

I also use the wonderful Sim Manipulator ( Aaroneous) to tweak likes and dislikes to increase attraction when I want to. You can also use it to change aspiration. It has a pregnancy info option, too - which tells how far the pregnancy is and allows you to select singleton/twins. (I, for one, find twin toddlers just too much! affraid)

Love the gypsy and her lamps, I use these exclusively to give "Peace of Mind" to those sims with non-Maxis careers.

Thanks Sandy and Mac.

I have the Sim Manipulator in my game, too. In the past, I have made mostly knowledge sims because I find them the easiest to play. They get the boost for learning skills, and then I would change their LTW to whatever I wanted it to be if I didn't like the one assigned to them. I decided to challenge myself by randomizing my sim creation process a bit more (except for the staff self-sims where specifics are provided). I've never had either of these LTWs. I don't know if I can handle them!

I like the max 7 skills LTW for sims born in game because, by the time they're at the end of their teens, they're often nearly there. It's really hard when you're starting with an adult sim, though.

I actually cut the l-o-n-g teenage years short and move them on to YA, then the last semester of univ, then adult. Actually, toddlers get a lot of learning done, usually around 4 in logic, mechanical, creativity, and charisma.

Yeah, you can get a lot done with toddlers, especially if you can make smart milk. I absolutely hate having sims stand in front the mirror for charisma points, so I usually try to max them out on that as toddlers before moving on to anything else. laughin

On the other hand, the flirtation option, in small doses, can be quite funny. "Green Bay Verney!"  Indeed!

My wife, maikkij, who had been an actress, launched into her Glynnis Johns' "White Cliffs of Dover" the first time she heard a woman practicing flirtation. Had me ROTFL!

Mac, if I had that kind of entertainment, I might not mind the mirror practice!

Enrique hit the beach for a little down time (not that he needs it; he's not working yet). He was attracted to nearly every woman he met. It's not hard to figure out what's on his mind most of the time. Nice beachwear, everyone. Rolling Eyes





Toni and a new friend, Honey Nelasnik, come over to Enrique's for a small get-together. There were drinks, appetizers, and a bit of hot tubbing.





Toni left early and Enrique wasted no time asking Honey for a date. They didn't go far, but it still turned out to be a dream date. Two down, 48 to go.
Despite Honey's hint earlier (see picture above) about how much she loves fried eggs for breakfast, there was no woohoo and she wasn't asked to stay overnight.



What?! There's a woman Enrique is not attracted to??? Maybe it's the uniform.

I am lovin' SimToni's gown. It's gorgeous! Where did you find it, Lady C?

I enjoyed your latest 'hood adventures. Thank you for sharing, Cher!

I've added the farm section to my hood, and redecorated some apartments for the Mediterranean area. Now that I've eliminated the apartment glitch, I've got quite a few sims in apartments. I really like them for starting out new sims. They're cheap, and allow the sims to save a little money. I've got all the Sugah Babies in my hood and in homes. I got my self-sim made, but I haven't put her in a house yet. Randy helped me quite a bit at the end when I was trying to get a few details right and couldn't remember how I looked 20-30 years ago. laughin We couldn't get the mouth quite right, but overall, it's not bad.

I have a bunch of mailbox recolors that don't show up in my game. The corresponding trashcan recolors work. I haven't yet found whatever it is that's preventing the mailbox recolors from working.

Enrique goes out almost every night. He met Elle and wasted no time asking her on a date.


They had a dream date (that's 3). It must have really been something, because she brought him quite a present along with the bouquet.


The next day, she came over and they sat around watching TV. Naked. Then Elle thought about a ring and Enrique put his clothes back on. Later, she found something that got him interested again. In fact, he ended up falling in love with her on their second date. He's up to 4 dream dates now.


He loves Marguerita, too, so that might be interesting. He also finally landed a job in the Music career, but hasn't been promoted yet. An another trip to the beach, he met Irene Williamsen, who offered to give his number to Xenia Pulkkinen. Of course he said yes, but she hasn't called yet.

Marguerita got a job in the Dance career. On the second day, she was promoted to Backup Dancer and ended up working a double shift. That must have impressed her boss, because on day 3, she was promoted to Simjazzer. Mr. Infinity was visiting the studio the next day and was quite impressed when she busted out an original move. Her hired her to go on the road with him. Shortly after that, a group of impatient young dancers wanted to break away and do some new stuff, and they asked Marguerita to go with them. She chose to stick with Mr. Infinity and his old school approach. Her loyalty landed her another promotion, and she's now a Dance Video Star!

Apparently, while I wasn't looking, she and Enrique engaged in some public woohoo because she has a memory of it. I guess she liked it, because she often wants more public woohoo.

On her first day off in quite a while, she went to the beach. She met Russ and they quickly became friends. Back at her place, she was fixing a snack when Russ failed to realize how hot the hot tub actually is. Luckily, Marguerita knew how to bring him around.



The next day, she met Alex O'Loughlin and asked him on a date. Later, Alex does the walk of shame ...


Two of Marguerita's fears are marrying Enrique (though she loves him) and marrying Alex. laughin

One day, the landlady asked to hang out. What's up with Marguerita's hot tub, anyway?


A romance sim's mind is never far from love, is it?

They do seem single-minded, don't they? laughin This is the first time I've really played Romance or Pleasure sims. I don't think I've spent much time playing a Popularity sim, either, but there's at least one of those coming up. It's also the first game I've played with ACR, but I'm enjoying it a lot. I'm used to micromanaging every aspect of my sims' lives, and ACR makes it easy to give up some of that.

Way to climb the career ladder at breakneck speed, Marguerita! Woot! Impressive!  

What's up with that hot tub?!? The heat must be cranked up to "boiling point"! HOT STUFF!!! affraid

Quote :

I used to rarely play Romance & Pleasure Sims.
Now, I try to give them equal opportunity in my 'hoods, perhaps more so Romance than Pleasure Sims, though.
I always favored Family, Fortune, Popularity and Knowledge Sims when I first started playing (esp Family and Knowledge).
But I'm getting better at diversifying. It can be fun to branch out sometimes.
Don't you think, Cher?

I can't wait to see CherSim. It's so cool Randy helped you create your Simself.
Thank you for sharing what's been going on in your 'hood.

Sugah, I made a Randy sim, too. I put Cher in my bin, then couldn't imagine having her with anyone but Randy. Rolling Eyes  I'll make them as a married couple and get them in the hood eventually. A semi-blurry preview:



I'm spending this first game week getting to know my sims and their personalities, so in some cases there's not much story yet.

Toni moved into the island starter I built. It's sparsely furnished and landscaped because she was jobless most of the week.






She went to the local bar/diner, Barney's By-the-Sea (remodeled) to meet some people. The bartenders seemed happy to meet her.


While there, she ran into Enrique. One of her wants is to be friends with him, but before I could do anything, she decided to take matters into her own hands and get to know him better. A LOT better.


They're pretty good friends now.  laughin

Barney's has a great hot tub out back, perfect to relax in after a, uh, strenuous, time in the photo booth.


Toni's favorite hobby is nature and she spends a lot of time collecting bugs and butterflies. She earned a pass to the secret hobby lot and grilled hot dogs for everyone there. She served them from the ground, of course, as you do.


At the end of the week, she finally got a job in journalism, so hopefully next time she comes up in the rotation, there will be more furnishings and landscaping.

Thanks. According to Randy, it's pretty close to what I looked like 10-15 years ago or so. Or at least as close as either of us old folks can remember.

Quote :

It might be from ACR; I don't recall having seen it before. I think it's a public woohoo symbol

This is Nahele, a sim I created to live in Ari's Tiki Starter. That lot is the one that inspired me to make the little starter Toni is living in. Nahele is a Fortune sim and this first week he didn't do much except work-related stuff and making friends. I gave him that hair when I was creating him, so I could see his face, but forgot to put the hair I wanted back on him before moving him into the lot. So when you see him in the hood, he looks a little different.


His tub faucet has already sprung a leak twice in the same week. I've had him spend some time studying mechanics so he can keep it repaired.


Since Nahele is a Fortune sim, I had him take the first job available even though his LTW is in Oceanography. His first job was Playground Monitor. He was trying to make a good impression, but ended up being too strict. He got fired on his second day on the job because some big kids were hassling a group of littler kids. He gave the big kids detention for bullying, and they wrecked the detention room with a bunch of spitballs (ewww). He did finally get a job in Oceanography. He grilled some delicious burgers at the company barbecue, and has been promoted to Dolphin Tank Cleaner. He did eventually make some time for fun, but he didn't catch that big sucker swimming out there.  laughin

Cher! I love your Simself and can't wait to see a close up of her.
She's lovely! I'm curious to see your RandySim, too.

I am thinking Elle will be getting back with you (if she hasn't already), with what she needs to add you to our SP Sidekick Chronicles.
I love the idea of you (and Sandy and Tim) joining in on the fun!
What a great time it would be, if our most active, loyal, devoted forum family members ALL started sharing our Simselves' antics!
I truly want to start playing again SOON and have every intention of adding our current SP Sidekicks to my Tres Lagos 'hood asap.

Like Mac and Sandy, I really like your Island Starter. MUCHO!
I'm all about smaller homes for my Sims. They rarely live in big estates/mansions.
It cracks me up that Toni lives in that little ramshackle house (thank you for using my Ramshackle wall, btw!!!  I love you ), but she's hanging around in such a gorgeous, glamorous gown.  

Geez, Enrique realllllllly gets around! If his hormones aren't on overdrive, I don't know WHOSE is! Oy vey!!!  laughin
Haha! Toni served hot dogs on the ground like we do! Too funny, Cher!
Congrats on Toni getting a journalism job!

I was wondering what that symbol above Toni and Enrique was, too, Sandy!
It may be a public woohoo symbol like Cher suggested.
Can you believe in all the years I've been playing, my Sims have never woohooed in a public place?
That's why I wouldn't recognize the symbol. I'm assuming it's the same for you, Sandy?

Where did you get Nahele's outfit, Cher?
I need something like that (and some recolors of it) to add to my beachcombers' wardrobes.
Did you know Nahele is a Hawaiian name meaning "Forest"?
(I am totally into name origins, btw.   )

I love the shot of your handsome Dolphin Tank Cleaner missing out on catching that big fish swimming by his fishing line!  
(What is that way cool building in the backdrop?)
Can't wait to see a close up of Nahele! DO share!

ThankUforSharing

I'm sure she will. I remember her mentioning how far behind she is, especially with PMs. I know how easy it can be to fall behind!

You can see where she's been spending her money. laughin

I love small starter houses. I don't like to use money cheats to start out my sims, so they live in apartments and small houses until they can afford something bigger. If their families start getting large, then I like them to have bigger houses. Rarely do I have a sim in a real mansion, though; it has to really fit their personality.

You have the most wonderful walls that I can't stop using in my beach area homes. You will also see your Knockdown Walls in some apartments very soon.  

Nahele was the name of one of my favorite sims in an earlier game. I have a list of Hawaiian names that I used for that particular family. His outfit is from Sims2City. I downloaded quite a few summer clothes from that site recently.

Quote :

There are a number of things my sims had never done until I installed ACR. It's been a real experience!

Quote :

It's yet another of Criquette's fantastic hood deco items. It's the cruise ship terminal. I don't really care about the overall hood shots, but I really love what the hood decos do for my in-lot backgrounds. I also have the animated sharks, dolphin, and seagulls from Affinity. They add a lot to my community beach lots, although they end up making a strange background noise so that I eventually turn off my speakers when I'm in those lots. I think Nahele might have been lucky not to catch a shark!

I don't either... But I haven't used 'kaching' or 'familyfunds' in a long time. I use a hacked computer which allows the sim to take out a loan to start with. You have to pay interest on the loan (doh) but when you're more solvent you can open up a savings account and get interest.

These hacked computers are one of the core hacks I use, not only loans and savings, but better email and options to study skills.

That last beach picture you posted is awesome! I also appreciate the fun of playing with some RL simmies!
