I have a whole game set up just for this project, but I'll start with some you've already seen in my [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] because they're too fabulous not to share here. laughin

While I was setting up my Isle of Demeter hood, I took a break just to play.

I chose Toni's [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] and Sugah's [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.].
I now call them Jack and Ella 1.0 because I liked them so much I put them in my main hood, as well (Jack and Ella 2.0).

Jack and Ella 1.0 had two children, the precious Paloma ...









... and the dapper Gavin.









I abandoned that hood once Isle of Demeter was set up, since that was the only family in the hood and the kids had no one to play with.
Jack and Ella 2.0 have started their family, though, so it will be fun to see how they compare to the 1.0 versions.
Their daughter Paloma (2.0) is still a baby and it will probably be some time before I get back to that family's rotation, especially since I've put that hood on hold in order to create one specifically for the Offspring Project.

Well, I'm never good at determining what babies will look like later on, or which parent they resemble -- in RL or in the game! But Paloma's (2.0) makes me think of Gavin more than her previous version. It will be interesting to see what happens. It's definitely an interesting gene pool here.

wow!

What an absolute beauty Paloma (still love that name) grew up to be!
And Gavin is an absolute doll!

I know it'll be awhile before you return to the 2.0 version of that family, but I look forward to seeing how the latest version of pretty Paloma turns out.

I'm so glad you've started this project, Cher, and look forward to seeing Jonah & Alyssa's offspring soon!

ThankUforSharing

PS As always, I thank you for using some of my walls on your lot!

I think you're right. Her face is just a little bit sharper looking than the original Paloma's.


I started my official Offspring Project with Ari's [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] and [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.].
Jonah is a Libra/Pleasure Sim & Alyssa is a Cancer/Family Sim.





Their first and only (so far) child is Nick, though Alyssa hopes to add to the family soon.



Here's a bonus shot, because it's so darn cute:

Awwww! Nick IS adorable!
I'm lovin' that cute little bear outfit he's sporting, too.
Both of his parents have green eyes, moderately fair skin and red hair & I'm thinking that's gonna be little Nicky's color chart (an Autumn, perhaps?) as well. girlwinkin
Cher, I had completely forgotten, but the outfit Alyssa is wearing, I created exclusively for her!  

To learn more details of Alyssa & Jonah's life in Cher's 'hood click [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] (April 28 posts).

I'm so glad you're participating in this little project, Lady C, and again, I am thrilled to see some of my recolors & walls in your game.
Thank you so much!

Sugah, I tried to choose a male and a female with blonde, black, brown, and red hair. I thought Alyssa was a redhead, but her hair is actually binned under brown hair. It's hard to tell because some of the hair meshers/creators put colors in different places that I think they should be. There are also quite a few who think red hair only comes in shades of pink! I could have re-binned Alyssa's hair as red, but I didn't want to mess with any of her genetics. I'm curious to see whether Nicky ends up with red or brown hair.

My next couple is Jen's [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] and [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]. They both ended up being Family/Cancer Sims.





They started their family immediately (and I mean immediately -- see my [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] for details. laughin Their first child is Nick. He definitely has Kelly's beautiful green eyes.


He morphed into a toddler with a hair that looks similar to one you recently had, Sugah. I don't think it's exactly the same, though.

I've seen that happen and I agree.
Some creators must be quasi-color blind, perhaps?
Just kidding!
Isn't there a program that helps Simmers to re-bin items?
Here's one, but I'm not sure if that's the one I am thinking of...

Hellllllo, Patrick! hubbahubba

Look at baby Nicky's gorgeous green orbs! So sweet!
No, it's not the same hair, but the little man is rockin' it, Cher.

Wait a second...
Isn't Alyssa and Jonah's son named Nick? Or am I on crack?

I'll visit your Cher Share's thread to find out more details of Patrick & Kelly's lives next.

ThankUforSharing

I'm the one on crack, Sugah. Patrick and Kelly's little guy is named Marshall, but I wrote Nick.

Unless a specific name just pops into my head or I have a theme going, I open a baby name book to a random page and pick a name from it. I could have named that poor kid Marion; that was on the same page as Marshall. laughin

That's the hair binner I use. I even have Alyssa's hair in all colors as one of my custom downloads in the Isle of Demeter game. I just decided not to change Alyssa's because I wanted to use all the genetics just as they were originally designed, and since Jonah's a redhead, I still have red in the gene pool.

Thanks for stopping by!

Hahaha! Oh, good heavens! How many of us have done that a time or two?!?

What a coinky dink!
I used to open my baby name book to a random page, close my eyes and point!
Unless the name was hideous (can you say, "Goopy"?   ), I'd usually go with it.
But in recent years, often times I can look at a Sim for awhile and their name & astrological sign just sorta come to me...
Even their aspiration & career path more often than not.
It sounds like you are the same way about naming your Sims sometimes.

What do you think of it? User friendly? Complicated or easy peasy?

I'm starting to play more like that. I've installed some things that provide more sensible autonomy for my Sims, and am more willing to sit back and see how they behave. Before, I was much more of a micromanager (that's the polite version of what Randy calls it!).

I think the hair binner is pretty easy, especially after you've used it once. The nice thing is that you undo any screw-ups. I used this tutorial and I highly recommend it. It's lengthy, but not difficult. The tutorial also discusses a way to create a gray version for hairs that don't come with it, but I haven't tried it yet. I suspect it assumes I know something about recoloring that I definitely don't know.

... Let me guess ... "Control Freak"???
I go back and forth between playing the Almighty Omniscient Omnipotent Omnipresent SimGod  
and giving my Sims a little freedom & power of their own. laughin

I might look into that hair binning program & tutorial.
I certainly wouldn't mind having my Sim hair more organized, so the binning makes sense.
I've been meaning to re-categorize some of my Sim's fashions, too.
I don't know why some creators think athletic wear can double as undies...
and Swimsuits, more often than not, are a poor choice for formal occasions.

You have really chosen great couples!

In the first picture Jack is so happy with his newborn daughter, that is really cute :)

Paloma (1) is a stunning teen. I'm so curious to see how Paloma (2) will turn out.

Your picture with Jack and Gavin is precious;also the picture of Kelly with her baby is adorable.

That bonus picture is super cute!

Nice couples! Paloma is especially stunning as a teen. I love her hairstyle. Marshall's a cutie too. I look forward to seeing what he looks like as he gets older. I think he has a lot of potential.

You really have to wonder what some creators were thinking when they binned their hair. I used a program one time to re-bin some of the wonky ones in my game. But in some cases I kind of like the variation, especially if I have, say, a lot of brown-haired sims. It's kind of nice to get one that's a little more on the blonde side or a little more reddish to mix things up. But some of the choices are pretty out there.

I think there is another program to re-bin, Sugah. I'm thinking maybe it was the wardrobe wrangler, but I can't remember now which one I used.

I looked up a random name generator online when I was stuck on some of my sim kid's names, but mostly I try to have a couple of ideas in mind before the baby is born.

I think quite a few of our members, whether here or at PTS were using Jfade's Wardrobe Wrangler, Em. I don't think I ever gave it an honest try, but I know some did.
I don't recall how user friendly it is and I am a bit daft & slow about learning new programs.

If a Sim's name doesn't come to me upon looking at the Sim and thinking about him/her awhile...
I use one of my Baby Name books or the 20000-Names website, which I love.
If I look at a Sim and can sense his/her personality and a certain name MEANING is important or if they are an ethnic Sim,
the 20000-Names site is especially great to help find the perfect name (eg Noble, Joyful, Lucky, Evil, Elfin, etc., etc).

Thank you for checking in, everyone! I think I'll have another little offspring to share soon.

I have the Wardrobe Wrangler, but I was afraid to use it. laughin

I was wrong about the hair binner.    I originally used Theo's Hair Binner, which is the one I was thinking about when I told you it was easy to use, especially after the first time. It's a SimPE plug-in and it worked very well, but I couldn't figure out how to (or if you can) bin facial hair with it. THAT's when I downloaded the one you linked by CatOfEvilGenius. That one is even easier than Theo's and doesn't require SimPE.

Meet the Prices!
Elle's [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] is Family/Scorpio, while Toni's [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] is Family/Pisces.





They started their family within minutes, and soon baby Elijah was born.
I couldn't seem to get a good close-up view of him. I'll try again when the Price family comes back up in the rotation.
I think he looks a lot like Malika so far.



Nanny Lettie likes to play with Elijah, and despite her fondness for beer (see my last post [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]), she takes good care of him.



Malika is already pregnant again, so Elijah will get a little sibling in the next rotation.

Oooooh! Another family procreating in Cher's (Sugah's) Pleasantview! Yaaaay! dancintrio  

You know, I really like Elle's Avett, too, but when I look at him, I see a fella whose preference is other fellas.
This happens to me sometimes when I look at Sims. You?
Avett is a pretty boy who appears rather feminine to my eyes, so in Tres Lagos, he will probably not favor the female persuasion.

But I think you have found an intriguing love match in Toni's Malika for him.
She has a strong, no-nonsense look about her. Don't you think?
Like she is the one who woud go out, kick butt and be the family bread winner...
And sensitive Avett, with his gentle, big baby blues would be perfectly happy staying home as a devoted & loving Mr Mom.

ELIJAH! I love that name!!! I love you

When I first looked at Avett, I saw a definite Metrosexual. laughin I fixated on the idea that he's an ambitious politician and that means he needs a family. Since he has 3 bolts with Malika, he is attracted to her. I don't think that rules out any future attractions to other people, possibly other men. Once they have that "perfect" family, she can go back to focusing solely on her career and he can focus on ... whatever he wants to focus on.

I find myself drawn to Malika's face, especially her eyes (although that hair is awesome, too). I think you nailed Malika's personality exactly. I think she's also a woman who wants it all. She is more devoted to her career, though, and is happy to have Nanny Lettie to take care of the family details. She and Avett seem to me to be what we always called a "Power Couple." I thought a large part of their marriage would be a matter of convenience and expectations for their respective careers, but it has developed into a loving one as well.
