After all the hassle with Photobucket   this is a brand new post using the host servimg.
Toni's Kaile is married to Caleb's Shane Regent   both! They've had a son Rex, who is celebrating his birthday transition from toddler to child. Shane (Popularity/Taurus) is at the top of the Journalism career and Kaile  wow!   (Popularity/Aries) is at the top of the actress career. Kaile came home from her acting job just in time to bring Rex to the cake. Coming with her was another actress: Meryl Streep (by gdayars @ MTS2   ) and she joined in the celebration.

Can't wait to see what Rex looks like when he gets older!  I didn't remember making a simmie called Kittery, but I recognized her from hair! laughin I called her Kaile, and I've just updated [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] so her picture displays again.

Yup, that's her (Yummy!) In my post I called her both Kaile and Kittery - going to correct it now. Caleb supplied last names for  his sims. Lots of yours had last names like Kittery, Nevin, Kittson, Frederick (!), etc. I'm currently using the St. Paul street directory to supply last names. Been using some simmies by SummerGlau and nyctopile from MTS2 lately. Looking forward to your next creation! wow!

Meanwhile, here's Rex as a child (and with looks like that he'd better learn how to fight  verklempt )  I usually keep my sims as children only long enough to improve their Grouchy...Nice to at least 3 (most born-in-game start at 1!) and maybe get their grades up to B+ at least. They're teens only long enough to get to A, A+, now and then be a superachiever. Then on to univ and adult life. But all that will have to wait until the next season.

Two of Toni's creations,, Astrid and Sacha    found each other and have had a son, Whitney. Here are pics of them with Whitney as a child and, later, with Whitney as a YA as he started university

I'm using a lot of sims lately, many not by contributors on this forum. Here, however, are two: Lilura, by Sugah and Tony, by Toni.   to both of you. Tony (Pleasure/Aries) is at the top of the Maxis Intelligence career and Lilith (Pleasure/Aries) is at the top of the Maxis Show Business career. Sugah submitted Lilura as dressed in the picture. We won't even talk about her undies!  hubbahubba (I couldn't find an embarrassed/blushing emoticon)

Their daughter, Lilith is now a YA at university. She's Family/Scorpio and will be following a career path different from mom and dad. She'll probably be following a Science or Engineering career. Who says that scientists or engineers can't be beautiful!  wow!

Here are Joe Minelli and his wife Lucia with their son, Vinnie Minelli as he enters university. Both Joe and Lucia  wow! are by Toni   I've missed the wonderful simmies created on this site lately. I've been using some by SummerGlau and nyctopile on MTS2. But Ari's back so I can hope for some yummy sims! Maybe a few eventually when Toni finds time in her busy life.  bluwhew!  I de-elderized Joe and made him just a regular adult. (Wish there were a RL version. I just turned 77 and have decided to call 77... "the new 76"  ) Joe is at level 8 in the Fitness career (Fitness author: Sit on your duff, read the book, feel the power!  laughin) Lucia is at the top of the Acting career (both careers non-Maxis). Vinnie is looking at a career in Music.

Vinnie has some family cousins: Joe's sons have children: Sal, a toddler, is the son of Anthony. Will Sal Minelli have a career in Cuisine???     Liza, a baby, but surely headed for an acting career is the daughter of Paolo, and Joe's lovely daughter Pia has a child "in the works"

I like the "new 76" Mac! The older I get, the less old any particular age seems to me. Funny how that works. laughin I have one of Toni's elders in my Sugah's Pleasanview game. Jake is married to the quiet, sensitive artist Esther, and he drinks a lot of green stuff because he doesn't want to leave her as a single parent to their two boys.

It's good to see someone playing and updating. I've been playing, but am way behind on updating. Sal Minelli should definitely have a career in cuisine.

More Minellis!
Anthony Minelli and Bailey (both by Toni  ) and their son Sal Minelli. Anthony (Knowledge/Taurus) is at level 7 of my Baseball career and the lovely Bailey (Knowledge/Aries) is at the top of a non-Maxis Real Estate career. Sal, a YA entering university, is Knowledge/Scorpio, has a hobby of Cuisine and is looking forward to a Culinary career. Won't all of you want to dine at Sal Minelli's restaurant?

Pia Minelli (by Toni  ) married Jim (by Verena @ MTS2  ) and he took her name. Pia is at level 6 in the Modeling career while Jim is at level 7 in the Maxis Athletic career. They're both Family/Cancer. She has a hobby of Sports and he has a hobby of Fitness

Here they are with their little girl Melanie (not Melania!) Can you say "Melanie Minelli" 10 times quickly?  verklempt Melanie is an Aries with a Sports hobby.

Does anyone know how the zodiac of the offspring is related to the zodiac of the parents, if at all? I do notice that lots of offspring have a grouchy-nice of 1. There are any number of hacks to increase the "nice" which I usually use when the offspring is a child - increasing up to no more than 4.

Oh everybody is so good looking!!! (If I do say so myself! )

I can't believe you now play a hood with children...do you remember when you only had one child in your whole neighbourhood! sunny

Nowadays, I tend to play sims until both mom and dad are at level 10 and offspring is (are) at univ. Then I retire the parents. I do tend to have a one child policy, not because of population limitation but just that 2 toddlers at once are a bit much (exceptions for exceptional sim parents: Nonni's self-sim and Kaspre - Elle's otherworldly and exceptional beauty). So I tend to have a flow of simmies through my 'hood. The retired simmies are in a subhood, I don't play them but they still walk through and occasionally form friendships with current simmies. I try to keep an eye on single simmies and either import or breed a simmie with 3-bolt-compatible features.

I play the babies and toddlers for the full number of days, and most of the toddlers play with their toys so that they're level 5 in logic, charisma, mechanical, and creativity. I play them as children until they get A+ in school, then transition them very briefly through teen to YA. I then play semester 8 (only) at univ and have a brand new adult.

Probably the way I play this way is that I didn't find my teen years to be very enjoyable. College was all (mostly laughin) about studying and not rah-rah. I sort of play the simmies the way I've lived. But at the ripe age of 77, I have no complaints!!! sunny

As far as I can tell, the zodiac sign of the offspring is random. I've not studied it, though, so I could be wrong. I've also noticed that an inordinate number of offspring have niceness of 1, regardless of how nice (or not) the parents are.

I've noticed that, too. I think when personality points are assigned to an toddler, they're assigned to personality traits from top to bottom. Thus niceness, at the bottom of the heap, tends to get short-changed. I use [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] hack to make up for it. The child must have all needs bars pretty much full to use one of the books, but they can then study "niceness" and increase that score. If they start out at grouchy 1,    I tend not to promote the score past 4. verklempt

I've always liked your idea of the retirement hood. It's up for consideration at my end. I just play my game so very slowly, I don't have enough elders yet believe it or not! laughin

Actually, very few of my sims are elders. While they are in the active game I just keep plying them with green stuff. I don't actively play them in the retirement 'hood so they stay adults without green stuff.

Among the sims I have actually made elders - and that's using a hack not natural aging, are: Me, Maikki, Sugah, Nerissa, and... you:Toni (who just happened to turn out a pretty young looking elder - and recently a great-grandma )

What an interesting idea on playing them...I hope when Cathy is back home and I get things done around here I can start playing again, I might try this approach or something close to it...so when you say a subhood you are talking about like downtown/university, so on and so forth?

My 'retirement' 'hood is actually classified as a shopping 'hood. I started with just a blank map with roads, put in a whole bunch of tiny houses, and have packed each with 8 'retirees'.

I miss Nonni   but her delightful elfin self-avatar continues in my 'hood. She's Family/Pisces and is at level 8 in a Sims2Creator career (doh). She's married to Ivor August, a born in game sim. He's Family/Scorpio and is at the top of the Science career. His parents are Sugah's Evariste and Toni's Apollonia.    Here they are with their two children Nico and Nina. Nina has mom's elvin traits.. It must be that red hair is a recessive gene, since both kids have Ivor's black hair.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Nico and Nina are now YA and at univ. They're renting a house together at Academie Le Tour. He's Popularity/Aries and heading onto some sort of musical career while she's Knowledge/Scorpio and is a budding scientist.

All my sim offspring go to univ (always Academie La Tour). They always have $1500 since they don't go until they're A+ and they get the scholarship and they have an inheritance bank account of $15000. I use familyfunds to bump their current up to ~$2500-$3000 so they can rent a house. I use a hack to play only the final semester and then they launch into adulthood with 5-6 want slots.

(The sims univ was really oriented toward rah rah I and most of my acquaintances were swots Thus no particular love for Sims2 univ. Academie La Tour has no frats which is why I picked it    - also I really didn't enjoy my teen years so the offspring tend to go from child to teen to YA in about a day)


Sheesh! What a party pooper!

Ha ha! I speed up the pregnancy and toddler phases (once I get pictures)...I enjoy playing teen and Uni for them to make friends and develop relationships and skills, so once they get to adulthood, they have an advantage.

I'm still loathe to age my simmes to elders...not because of them being older, but because the transition from adult, to hunched, graying elder with bad knees and a cough, is so quick! verklempt I tend to use middle-aged make-up on adults first and then when I first age them up, I use non-gray hairs and eyebrows for a while, and even adult clothes that are converted to elder, so they don't look like it's time to send them off to a home! laughin
