He does. I like that. It will be interesting to compare the offspring of Xori with Thulian in your game, and Thulian's son in Ulli's game.

That is, if our participants have trouble getting (in game) up close and personal, more neutral-faced snapshots.

I would love that. As you've noticed by now, I'm photo-challenged. laughin Using the creators' own head shots would guarantee a clear, well-lit picture for me.
I also like seeing the offspring at all the various ages, to see how they change or don't as they age up. Sugah, would it be OK to post all the age-up pictures in the Offspring threads, but then make sure there's a set of pictures with the offspring as teens along with the headshots of their parents in the same post so we can compare?

Despite my early idea to limit how many couples I used for this project, I kinda went nuts and added a whole bunch more - like 8 more couples.  But then I realized - this is for fun, why must I have limits?  Guilt solved.

This is funny, because it's what happened to me as well. I had four couples originally and wasn't interested in adding more. Then I realized I needed more blondes and redheads, and then I couldn't control myself at all. I'm going to take a note from you and ask myself why there need to be any limits at all!

Angus and Sapphira are a nice-looking couple, and baby Jaylen is a cutie. It looks like he might have his mother's eyes and hair color, and his father's skin tone.

I keep going back to look at Jaxson. He's so unusual with the dark skin and pale eyes; really striking. What I love most, though, is that smile on his face, as though he's been laughing. He sure looks like a happy baby.

What is it with us that we can't control ourselves?! Just keep reminding yourself, no limits.

But of course!  Isn't that the way it always goes?

I used those for my introductory pics, but can take them down if some of the creators do not approve.  I'm ok with people using mine, though.

Em wrote:
I love all of the couples and all of the babies. So cute! Iliana does have differently shaped eyes for a baby. I too though all babies were all pretty much the same in terms of facial features.   I guess not.

Doesn't she, though?  Many of my other babies have triangular shaped eyes, but not Iliana.  She's growing up pretty cute, too, I think.  She's a child, already, but I have so many more beginning couples to get through before I start sharing toddler and child pics.

Em wrote:
Ari's sims caught my attention second most often, I think.

Thank you!!

LOL - That's exactly what happened to me!  I didn't have any reds and too few blondes, and...a monster was born.  Since the original six couples, I have added eight more.  And I may not even be done, yet.  Were they all reds and blondes?  And I'm probably not even done, yet.

Time to meet another couple!  [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] and [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]; both by Toni

I've loved Christopher for a long time, and while "shopping" for blondes, I found Lana (because somehow I'd managed to miss her before) and that was that.  One glance and I knew I had to have her in my game.

They have had two children so far, both boys.  I think I know which one is which - they are identical while babies.  They're separate births, not twins.


and Marcus


I'm working on getting nice, close up shots of the couples instead of the cuddling pictures.  You really can't see their faces at all.  From these pictures, I can't even tell which parent the boys got their eyes from, but I can tell you, that as toddlers, they've got their mothers nose.  More pics to come!

All sims babies tend to look much the same, don't they? Usually it's only the eyes that extinguish them from other babies.

Oh my, these two baby boys are absolutely gorgeous! And definitely identical.

Thank you, MaAlet!  Yes they do look so much alike.  They are starting to look a little bit different now that they're toddlers, but they'll always look similar.

I'm going to go ahead and update the last two families I just shared before moving on to others.

Christopher and Lana's boys are growing up fast.

Here is first born Stefan as a toddler and child:




He's really handsome!  

Their second son, Marcus:




What a cutie!

Their third child is a girl, Candace:




Still just a toddler but growing up cute so far!

Also, Jaxson, son of Kofi and Cecily (please see above for pics and links)


Doesn't he look like a little adult? laughin


I think he's really cute!

I have many more pictures, but need to sort through them.  All my families (since I added new ones after my original couples started having babies) are at a different point in their rotation, and a few of them haven't even been played yet.

I like Jaxsons skin tone and eyes very soulful.

Excellent, Ari! Same here!
I sent out an email just now to our (past and present) SP team Sim creators (Em, too, of course ).
I am hoping to receive permission for our participating project members (who would like to use the Sim models' original head shot URLs) to be permitted to do so.
As soon as I hear from most, I will post the creators who have given their approval in our SP Offspring Rules.
However, it may be that some of the email addies I have for past creators are antiquated.
So, I may not hear from all.  No
Will keep everyone posted on the matter.  

That being said ...

wow!

What stunning blond boys Stefan & Marcus are!
Such beautiful skin & baby blues and handsome faces!
And Candace is a darling toddler. How precious!

I am still lovin' Jaxon's spectacular silver-blue eyes against his dark skin and hair.
And that tiny smattering of freckles! So cuuuuuuute!

Thank you, Sugah.  They're all turning out so well so far, aren't they?

I played Bramble and Aphrodite recently, and boy, oh boy do they have cute kids.  Here is a reminder pic of the parents



Their firstborn, Iliana, has become a child (she's now nearly a teen).  I am massively disappointed, though, because I cannot find a toddler picture of her anywhere.  I looked through all my sim pic files and even my recycling bin, hoping I'd accidentally misplaced or deleted it, but, I can't find one. Sorry about that!  I may go in, age her down to take a pic, then exit without saving, because I really want full documentation for all my sims as they grow.

Anyway, here is Iliana as a child


Their next birth resulted in twins, Tobias and Darina:


Tobias


Darina

As toddlers:


He inherited his daddy's elf ears.  They never show up on the infants, though.


Darina - I don't know if she has elf ears or not since she grew into this hair.  I'm going to have to change it just to see - but this hair is so incredibly cute on her that it has to stay!

And as children:


Tobias


Darina

The next baby was also a girl, Roxane

All four children have inherited their mother's blue eyes.

I noticed that right off. They're beautiful.

I have Bramble in my Isle of Demeter game, but I haven't played him yet. Since I'm having so much fun with the Offspring Project, it may be a long time before I ever do play him!

Iliana seems to have a seriousness to her as a child, and Tobias, as well. The little smile on Darina's face tells me she may be a little less serious. For some reason, they all suggest a certain amount of quietness of personality to me. Darina's hair is fantastic. It's really cute on her as a toddler and child. Do you remember where you got it?

Christopher and Lana's kids are so cute! I think my favorite so far is Stefan. I like his nose.

Jaxson is adorable too. I like his skin and eye combination. He does look like a very mature toddler. Certain skintones give that impression. I noticed that with one of my new families that I haven't shared yet.

Bramble and Aphrodite do have really cute kids! It looks like the kids might have gotten their mom's lips and brows somewhat too. Darina's hair is really cute, especially so when she's a child. It really suits her.

They do seem to have a serious/ calm type of look to them, don't they? They seem like they would be very mature children.

Awesome!  I do hope you share piccies!

I sent you a PM with the link to the hair.

Thank you for your responses, Cher and Em.  I'm in love with the beautiful features of the Bramble/Aphrodite brood.  I have so many interesting children in my game.

I am way behind on posting and replying to the other threads.  The beginning of summer has hit me like a ton of bricks.  The kids suddenly have different schedules and it seems like some form of chaos or another is always going on in RL.  I have played a bit and taken more pics - and added several more couples to my neighborhood because...reasons.  I now have 14 couples.  The fourth season rotation is just starting, and I'm giving all the adults 6 more days on their life bar.  I've also just upped and decided that everyone is now going to be a family sim, because I'm tired of waiting.  Some of my families (thanks to ACR) are taking their time reproducing for me, and I'm just about to use the 'always try for baby' setting if they don't start getting pregnant, like, yesterday.  I'm cracking that whip.  Babies!  Must have babies!  MORE babies!

Thanks for the link, Ari. That's one of the cutest hairs for toddlers I've seen.

laughin I've considered doing that, too. In fact, I think it was my original plan with Offspring Project until I started looking at the individual Sims and imagining other things.

I did, indeed, change a couple of couples to Family sims, and in addition, I've also given Family as a secondary aspiration to all non-family sims.  Some families that only had one or two children, I've used the 'Try for baby...always' override that comes with ACR and everyone has been given extra days on their life bars (since fertility declines with age because of ACR).  And after all that, some families are still sluggish on procreating.  I broke down and artificially insiminated one of my families because they only had 2 boys and she wouldn't get pregnant again - even though they were trying.  Then they had another boy.  

I would like each couple to have at least one boy and one girl, and additionally, at least one child that takes after each parent.  I have some unusual couples that I haven't posted yet, and would like a diverse group of children to really show off all the genetic possibilities, so some families are going to be very busy. Muahaha

Almost all of my firstborns (and some of my secondborns) are now teens, so I'm way behind on posting.  

Update on Bramble and Aphrodite:



Eldest daughter Iliana has turned into a gorgeous teen



And the newest addition to the household, Roxane, as a toddler



Roxane has very interesting upswept features and I can't wait to see what she looks like as she grows up.  All of the children are lovely so far, but I am disappointed that none of them inherited their father's brown eyes.

An update on Kofi and Cecily



Jaxson, son of Kofi and Cecily, has turned into a handsome teen



The couple have had a baby girl, named Juliana.  She has the same skin/eye combo that her brother has



Update on Christopher and Lana


Stefan has turned into a distinctive and handsome teen


His sister, Candace, has grown into a child.  She looks like a teen already


And new baby girl, Elena


Elena as a toddler. She's so cute.

wow they are growing up so fast.

I like the features of Stefan and Jaxson, I think they are going to be handsome.

Elena and Roxane have interesting looking features I think they are going to grow to "perfect" Sim adults.

Candance does look like a teen already, Iliana love her hair.

Iliana is so pretty, and Roxane has a very interesting face. It's one of those that doesn't seem quite right for a toddler, but will probably be stunning on a teen or older. I'm looking forward to seeing her grow up.

Jaxson definitely has turned into a handsome young man, and Juliana will probably look a lot like him. It will be interesting to see which features turn out different between them.

Stefan looks like a sensitive/creative guy, and Candace does have a very mature face. I like it. Elena looks like she might also end up looking more mature than her years.

Aaaw. Thank you hon. That means so much coming from you who makes such lovely sims!!! I'm so flattered.

Speaking of which, I meant to say that I love Kelia with that hair. It really shows off her gorgeous eyes. She's very pretty.

The children are all so cute! Stefan and Marcus are my 'biased' faves! lol! But I must give props to Bramble and Aphrodite's brood...they are gorgeous! (like Mommy and Daddy! )

Iliana, Tobias & Darina are SIMply stunning.

And Christopher and Lana's Stefan & Candace are lovely children, too.

All of the offspring are very attractive!

laughin I started giving some of my sims secondary aspirations of family to try to encourage them to settle down and early on I upped the chances of risky woohoo pretty high, but then I ended up lowering them again when too sims were getting pregnant with the first sim they hopped in bed with instead of partnering up. laughin

That sounds like Patrick and Ava in my game. I didn't have to resort to artificial insemination with them, but I tried almost every other trick in the book, just to get them a second child. They also ended up with 3 boys.

Iliana is gorgeous. She looks like such a sweet girl. Roxane on the other hand, looks like a little girl who's determined to get what she wants! Jaxson and Stefan are both handsome boys and I can't believe Candace is just a child. She really does look like a teen already! So many beautiful babies! Not a bad looking one in the bunch!

Ari, what a sweet story. The heart knows what the heart wants, as my grandmother always says.

Jaylen and Jaxson are just beautiful. Their coloring is spectacular. Two handsome lads for your medieval 'hood. And Darina, well, she is just beautiful, and she keeps getting more so with each passing stage.
