I can tell Marshall is Patrick's son. He reminds me of Patrick's sons in my game. Maybe it's the skin tone. I'm always glad to see updates to this project.

Em, I could see in your last post that Patrick's son in your game looks a lot like the boys in my game. It'll be interesting to see if they are also slow about working on their families.

Lenny and Lilura's girls are growing up.

Astraea is still a child since I have a mod that extends the length of childhood.



Tanit became a toddler, then a child, during this rotation.





I've been frustrated by my inability to get a close-up picture of the short people (toddlers and children) and thought I used to be able to get better pictures. I started fiddling around with my camera mods and realized I'd installed a new set that included the one I needed for taking pictures while playing. I removed it and went back to the one I'd been using before, and I should be able to get better pictures now.

I also poked around in Photobucket and determined that I can't put together a collage of pictures, which is nice when showing the offspring through all ages. I'm going to see if I can put something together in Picasa that I will then be able to host at Photobucket and post here. I have some time to play around with it since none of my offspring are even young adults yet.

Astraea and Tanit are very pretty. What mod is it that extends childhood? That sounds great and I could use one that shortens toddlerhood -haha, just kidding! Which is your fav camera mod? I am using Tom's in some of my neighborhoods but recently took it out of one of them cuz it causes crashing sometimes.

There's a delicacy to their faces that I find really sweet, though knocking over the trash isn't sweet at all. laughin

I use this lifespan mod by Phaenoh. Unfortunately for you, it actually lengthens the toddler phase.  There are a lot of other lifespan mods at MTS and maybe one of those would be what you want.

I'm actually using a combination of camera mods. I started with Quetzilla's CAS camera because I couldn't get the views I wanted when creating Sims. I also downloaded the cameras by Tom Duhamel (which are probably the same ones you're using) and GunMod. My personal preference ended up being Quetzilla's CAS camera, Tom Duhamel's Build Camera and LiveCamera with LiveCameraNoFade add-on, and all other cameras from GunMod.

At some point recently, I installed Lowedeus's camera mod, but it's not much differnet from all the cameras I already use. That's when I realized I wasn't using Tom Duhamel's LiveCamera any more. When I put that back in, I was able to get closer pictures of my Sims. Are you using SimNopke's skyfix? Apparently that causes problems for some people, and this combination of cameras may fix that.

They are very pretty girls. I especially like Tanit's face. She has a really lovely skintone.

Thanks for sharing those camera links. I have no idea what I have in my game right now, but I might need to check out the ones that change the CAS camera. Since I switched computers the UI covers half of my sims' faces and it's hard to edit anything. It looks like one of those might help.

Thanks for the links Cher I haven't been using the sky fix. Did you mean the custom camera's and that skyfix don't get along?

Sandy, that's my understanding. I didn't have any problems, but apparently some people have. I didn't download the cameras because of any specific problem I was having, but because I wanted to see how different they might be from what I was already using. In the process, I ended up removing the camera that let me get closer close-ups of my Sims.

I'm fascinated by them, too, because their looks are so unique. I expected them to take after Lenny more, but they seem to taking more of Lilura's characteristics.

Em, I downloaded the CAS camera because of the same problem you described, and I've been happy with how it works.

There was a lot of activity with the Price kids in Avett and Malika's fourth rotation.

Baby Lincoln was born. Edwin happened to be there to admire the new family member.





Bethany grew into a toddler, but I forgot to write down her personality stats.





Elijah became a teen, and helps out with the younger kids.





Four is not enough children, so Avett and Malika decided to traumatize Elijah by working on number five before Elijah could get out of the room.

Thanks, ladies.

I really like Malika, too, and her family. I think Malika, and Jake & Esther, are my favorite Sims in Sugah's Pleasantview these days.

This is embarrassing. I mentioned in the game thread that I had pictures of Colin and Autumn's kids here, then I forgot to post the pictures.

Spring as a toddler -- I think she's pretty cute!


Winter, who's a cutie as well:


And this is just because I think it's great when parents read to their kids, and I really miss reading to my niece when she was little.  


I also have some pictures of Ilyse's twins (Fin is their father), who aged up to children.
Griffin, who is a Libra, 2-9-5-5-6.


Glenna, who is a Libra, 2-7-5-5-6.


So, the kids are slobs. laughin I'm off to post more pictures from the Ilyse and Kurt rotation. I'm not pushing them to have children together, but I'm hoping they'll have at least one. They're both Fortune Sims, so it's probably not their highest priority.

Griffin is looking like a "Trekkie" with a love for space! So cute!

All of the kids have great genetics and are so cute! I love you

Two more family updates. I'll post more details on my game thread, but here are the offspring pictures.

Jonah and Alyssa's Nick grew into a teen, and Julia grew into a child. I have  before and after pictures of Julia; all I changed was the hair, but it makes a huge difference.






Patrick and Kelly's Forest also grew into a teen this rotation.

So many cute kids! Thorn and Gilby have amazing eyes. Nick is handsome. Hair really does make a big difference. I like the style you chose for Julia. I can always tell Patrick's kids right away without seeing his name. laughin I think the skintone gives it away.

Sadly, I don't have the patience for sims reading to kids. I always cancel it out because they have more important things to do. verklempt I do not feel that way in real life though. My son and I used to spend a lot of time reading together.

With the help of the Smart Milk and the Thinking Cap, I always teach my toddlers to talk, walk, and use the potty. I also usually do the nursery rhyme bit - it's sweet - and really cute when some tough guy adventurer sim-hunk is teaching the rhyme!

I really have my toddlers play to learn as much skill as possible. Especially charisma, since it's so hard to fulfill later on. By the time the kids go to college, they're usually 4 or 5 in charisma, intelligence, mechanical, and creativity. I keep 'em as kids until they get A+ in school. If mom or dad gets goodie points for a sim kid being an overachiever, I keep the kid as a teen until they advance to level 3 in a teen career. Otherwise I don't play teens much. Then off to univ, with maybe 10K in savings. I only play semester 8 in univ, then on to an adult life, often starting at a higher career level.

(I more or less play the sims as I have lived. Didn't enjoy teenage years much, and univ was intense studying rather than rah-rah. [The nearby college where my BiL teaches seems to be a bit of a party school, although his students - in physics and engineering - are pretty darn serious] Alas, Maikki and I never had kids in RL, so do enjoy the sim-kids. In RL, Maikki and I have 2 spoiled kitties. Don't have to send them to college, but they won't support us in our old age - which hasn't happened yet! )

I do that too. Sometimes I like to provide them with all the skill building toys to let them choose on their own, but usually if I'm just going for one, I pick the charisma toy for the same reason. I'm a pretty neglectful sim mother. I usually leave the babies and toddlers to their own devices unless they need fed or changed or put to bed. I usually only do skilling anymore (or nursery rhyme) if I need to fulfill wants and there aren't any socializing wants in their panel to do the job quickly.

I like playing teens, but their time as teens is so long that I usually cut it in half and send them to uni or grow them up halfway through.

I'll have to think about my sim playing style compares to how I live my life. I like to give them lots of chances to socialize, have relationships, and breed and none of that is much like me at all. I don't push them to study or advance too hard, which might be like me, but I also don't let them waste time on things that are non-productive like playing computer games. It's interesting to think about.

You need real life pet careers. Get those kitties to work so they can support you like in the sims. laughin

When they're babies, I make sure each parent does some of the work. I'll usually have them play with the baby after a diaper change, and cuddle after a feeding. After a few days, the relationship with the baby is very strong.

When they're toddlers, I like to do all the training, including the nursery rhyme. All their spare time is spent on the rabbit head, which is why I often cancel the reading. If they max out charisma, or age up, I put them on the table playing blocks to build their mechanical ability. I do try to let an adult read to a toddler or child at least once, and once they're a child, I have an adult help with homework at least once.

Some of my adults seem determined to be more hands on, and now that the adults have mostly achieved Permanent Platinum status one way or the other, I tend to let them do whatever they want when I don't have something specific they need to do. I've also had one or two teens who want to help out a lot, and I let them do that most of the time.

Since I use an age mod that allows more time at all life stages, many of my kids have a lot of skills by the time they're ready for college. I'm starting to send them early, though, because I'm ready for them to move on to the next stage.
