It's truly an amazing coincidence, but I agree that he totally shouts "I'm an Aussie, mates!" with the whole thing he's got goin' on.

I know we talked about this before, but I'm glad he gave off that Australian vibe, since I that's what I was going for. Since he's a blond surfer dude, he had to be either Australian or Californian. So it was a 50/50 chance. laughin

It sounds like little Callista came along just when she was meant too. I think I mentioned this in your other thread, but I really like how you decorated their place. Very fitting for them. I like the back story of Nanny Calista being both Will and Callista's nanny and the baby's name sake. My Will (and his slightly older brother) was raised by a single father, so having a nanny or caretaker would have made sense for them too, though I never thought about it before. Calista looks like she's a lot of fun. It's nice when the game gives you a good nanny. In my hood, the main nanny, April Lillard, has been good to my sim kids. She's not interested in cleaning up too much or doing extra work and she does make use of the TV and other things on the job while the babies when they're napping, but she is very attentive to the little ones when they need her.

I moved Anais into my hood as well (sorry, I don't know how to do the special characters.) She's also in the culinary career, but is just starting out. She hasn't had much luck in other areas of her life, but I'm trying to find a happier ending for her. I think I have Will in this hood somewhere. If he's not already romantically involved with someone else, I might need to have them meet and see what happens. Maybe moving her out of my apartment complex that seems to have a problem with fidelity would help.

Lady Luv is a beautiful cat (somehow I missed seeing that post before.) The Benoit's look like they are a very happy and successful family. I love you Very cute moments you caught with the Benedetto family too. So sweet!

I forgot to mention I used the last name King for some of my sims too. Drake and Ava I gave the last name King because they were from Ari's Royal Kingdom Challenge, I believe. Ming and the children took Drake's last name. Ava took Patrick's.

Em, thank you for leaving such a great response in my game antics thread.

It's small & modest, but it seems to suit them just fine.  
(Although now that Callista has grown into a gorgeous teen, they're going to need another bedroom if the Kings wish to continue to grow their lovely family. And they do.   )

I'm glad you like the back story with Nanny Calista.
I never used to bother with back stories, but I'm trying to get better about it.
And I think it's neat that in your game, Will and his brother, might've had a nurturing, loving nanny, too (having been raised by a single dad).  

April Lillard ... Hmmm ... I don't think I recall a nanny by that name.
Did she come with an EP I don't have, maybe?
Nanny Karen and Nanny Calista are the two I recall in my game, but I know there must be others...  

Anais = Anaïs because I copy and paste it from elsewhere on the web (like HERE). I don't know how to type special characters either, but I'm an expert @ "copy and paste"!  laughin

Again, I thank you for stopping by and for the terrific comments you left, Em.
I am always appreciative of members taking the time to do so.  



I was able to play last night for a bit.

I don't play in rotations like some folks here do.
I normally just load up my game and get a feel for which family I am in the mood to visit when I play.
Then, I hang out with that family until I either shut down my game for the night or until I'm missing another particular family.

Last night, I spent time with the absolutely lovely Benedettos (again ): Anthony, KimberLee, Mia, Anna, Isabella and Orion (the alien formerly known as Celestino).
I changed Celestino's name to Orion because I realized I already had a Sim child named Celeste (Evie and Zen's daughter).
The names seemed to alike to me. Anyhoo...



Isabella sharing a secret with her (step) mama (KimberLee).



"Don't tell daddy what I got him for Father's Day, but ... !"

I was busy doing other things on the lot and when I looked outside, Anna was pushing Orion & Mia was just chillin' on the new swing set.



I love it when stuff like that just happens on it's own, don't you?  I love you

The ever-growing Benedetto brood needed a new, bigger home.
Though I rather liked their old one, it no longer suited them.

It's a work in progress, but this is what I've done so far.



The building on the left is where the private quarters where the three teen girls sleep.
They have their own private bathroom, too.
I will try to take more snapshots as I finish the interior.

Yes, please! I love all that vegetation around the pool area. The plants in front are especially nice, as they give a feeling of privacy and maybe being in a tropical oasis somewhere.

Do you build all your Sims' homes?

I either started this neighborhood (as I have most of mine) with a blank template or using the "deleteAllCharacters" cheat, so it does not have any of the defaults NPCs and townies, so she's unique to this particular hood. There's also a Nanny Kitty in this hood that shows up sometimes when my sims try to dismiss Nanny April when she is not needed.

Smart! And you must be very dedicated to do so every time! Copy and paste I can do.

Normally I play with rotations, because aging sims, particularly siblings is important to me. That is one thing I am picky about. But this time I'm not. I'm just playing whoever I feel like. I started out trying to play everyone evenly, but then I quickly realized there was no need to. There's no reason my starting sims should be or stay the same age. I'm starting to regret it a little bit now that I have siblings and half-siblings in the game. In one of my households I have a toddler that should technically be older than one of the teens since they were conceived first. It puts a crimp in the timeline that's in my head. I'm trying to keep the second generation aged more evenly. I have a general sense of what their birth order should be.

I actually prefer the name Orion to Celestino. (I'm sort of partial to Orion anyway.) I had a similar conflict in my hood. I realized Francesca was closer to Frances than I would have liked, but I liked that name for her too much to go with something else and at that point Frances was already a teen (or close enough to one) and it was too late to change her name. I almost had an Amelie and an Amy born close together too, but I decided to avert that one and went with another name in the latter's case that occurred to me before her birth.

Isabella is still lovely and the gossiping with her step-daughter is very cute. The family's new house is very nice! I'm sure the teens appreciate having their own separate space too! wow!

I've been feeling conflicted about moving some of my sims too. It seems like as soon as I bother to take time and decorate their homes/apartments, I start feeling like they need more space, but I'm hesitant to move them, after I just got their places fixed up.

I'm having that same conflict right now. My families are getting too big for their starter homes, but some of them aren't even as fully furnished as they should be.

Quote :

I've been playing the same way for years. When I was playing Pirri Pirri, I even made sure to stagger the Uni students by birth order, making each semester equal to a week in the main hood. I haven't decided how I will do it with Sugah's Pleasantview. I'm thinking I might dump this entire generation into Uni and play them, once they're all there, as if they were the same age. I think it might make it easier to see who they're attracted to. That's where I thought I might add Paloma, the extracted offspring of Toni's Jack and Sugah's Ella.

How wonderful! So much activity in this thread!
Big shout out to Cher, Em and Sandy for visiting and for your wonderful comments!!!
Thank you, thank you, thank you, ladies! I love it!

It's a challenge for me, but I'm working on it, Cher.
I get freakin' fixated on having everyone be ultra-studious so they can get to the top of their careers PRONTO.
So, I've been making a conscientious effort to be more laid back about that AND ...
To just let them "BE" more often ... Just let them "LIVE". You know?
Like you, I struggle with just slowing down, sitting back and enjoying my families.

Oh, I forget about that option more often than not, Em.
It makes sense now.

Em wrote:

Haha! It only takes seconds to pull up the names with the accents & special characters (like Désirée & Anaïs) to copy and paste 'em.
I rather like the fancy schmancy way they look, so it's worth the tiny effort. Call me "silly".

Interesting! I'm learning that more and more of you play in rotation.
I never really thought about it until some of you (namely Cher & Mac) starting discussing the subject.

That's a neat idea, Cher! I don't play with Uni, so I'd be tickled to see your SP Offspring all off at college together.  

Em, did I see somewhere that you are wanting the offspring of the SP project to be teens simultaneously, too?
I have four teen daughters so far (they are the oldest of the Tres Lagos offspring: Désirée, Celeste, Isabella & Callista).
The boys are still toddlers, I believe (Zach & Dion), but I'm about to visit the Haeven family this evening.
If I play long enough, Celeste & Zach will both be teens together in the household.
I'm getting ready to have a few other long time residents in the 'hood advance in their relationships, too.
Some, I don't want to rush though. They still need time for a proper courtship.

Em wrote:

I think I do, too, Em. It's more "other worldly", don't you think?
I had to Google how to change a Sim's name, because I had forgotten how (Re: Spawn the Tombstone of L & D).

Ladies, I am like you (conflicted about moving Sims into a bigger place to accommodate growing families).
I am not a huge fan of building and decorating, as you may recall.
I fear I may be doing this for quite a few of my Tres Lagos 'hood residents with the recent population explosion. Rolling Eyes  
(To answer your question, Cher, I normally build my Sims' homes or, on occasion, renovate & decorate Maxis lots.)

Thank you for the compliments on the Benedetto's new abode, Cher, Em & Sandy.
Oh, and Sandy, their three teen girls don't get their own abode/apartment!
Haha! They aren't THAT spoiled!  
It's just a bedroom and bathroom overlooking the pool.  sunny

Speaking of...
Here are some snapshots I took last night.



The Brainy Benedettos



The only time the girls let Orion in their room is during study time.
He's a nutcase for making everyone's beds (9 neat points), so they're okay when he needs to be in there to do that, too. laughin
(Sorry about the ginormous Foxgloves in the way. Went a little cuckoo with the landscaping.   )

Orion's Room



Check out the top (little) sign: Wear your seatbelt! It makes it harder for the aliens to suck you out of your car.  
I love it!

Canadian Bacon pizza paired with great conversation for breakfast:
A typical Saturday morning at the Benedetto abode.



This family ROCKS! They are so much fun.  I love you
Here are lovebirds KimberLee & Anthony with Orion & the eldest daughter Mia dancin' after breakfast.





Check out that living room view of the pool. Nice, eh?
And may I just go on record as saying Anthony is a REAL man who has NEVER feared PINK.
He raised two girls all on his own (a widower) until he met his beloved wild & crazy KimberLee.  
Mr. Benedetto is confident in his masculinity and, in fact, adores being surrounded by so many women.
"Pink walls & decor", you say? "Bring it on!!!", says Mr. B!

Yes, that was my plan. I still want to keep a little bit of age difference between them, so I might send them in groups. I'm finding I have more boys than girls though, especially among the first born, so I may have to send them closer together than I originally planned. The first group of students were four boys and one girl. I went ahead and started adding the second born from some of my families (and some of the younger first borns) and ended up with 6 boys and 3 girls. I really don't want to send everyone all at once because I feel kind of bad leaving the parents so suddenly with a completely empty nest. laughin I'm finding that some of my offspring have already started to pair off as teens. They already seem to know who they like and who they don't.

My sims seem to get by with very sparsely furnished (and even less so decorated) homes. Then by the time I actually take the time to make an effort to decorate, I've realized they've really outgrown the place anyway. It wouldn't be a problem if they weren't apartment dwellers. They would be find if I could just add on a room or two or build a couple of walls to subdivide the larger than necessary rooms.

The kids' bedrooms are so cute! It's nice of the girls to make an exception to the "girl's only" rule to let their brother study with them. laughin I really like the huge living room window overlooking the pool. Nice idea!

The same thing is happening in Cher's (Sugah's) Pleasantview.
For awhile, she had ALL boys, just like I had all girls initially.
Hopefully, things will even out for all of our SP Offspring Project 'hoods!

I think that's why I am not in a hurry to have my Tres Lago's teens grow up and move out.
All of these families are so close and dear. And I REALLY love them all together.
I'm hard-pressed to separate some of them for awhile.  No

There's no adding on. Moving out and starting in a new place is the only option with your growing families.
It is a time consuming, not-necessarily-fun and tedious business for me. Is it the same for you?
So, I really have to be in the mood to build & decorate all new abodes (which isn't often).

The girls also make an exception to letting Orion in their private space when he is itchin' to make their beds.
Smart girls are they.

I wish I did more of that. I usually download lots, often without the CC, and then renovate them. In Sugah's Pleasantview, I'm forcing myself to play the lots (redecorated of course) already there. I can add on to them or build new lots as the population expands. I have built maybe a dozen lots over the years, pretty much all from floor plans or my memory of a house. I did most of my building when my nieces were playing and would ask me to build a certain house for them. I do have more I want to build, but I'm in playing mode these days.

Sandy, thank you for your generous compliments about my decorating skills.
You truly flatter me.  
I look at others' work and feel my minimalist abodes pale in comparison.
I don't like to take a lot of time & rarely have the inclination, so my Sims never have extravagant, fancy, big-time-done-up homes.
(This old lady was not granted the patience or energy for such a huge endeavor.   )
But your positive comments mean so much and I thank you, most sincerely, for them.

Don't tell me you're a big fan of the X-Files, too, Cher? If you mentioned that awhile back, I'd forgotten.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE the X-Files and am so tickled they're doing 6 NEW episodes later this year.

Amen to that!

Thank you, Sandy and Cher, for stopping by and taking the time to comment, as always.

I was able to play the Haeven family for awhile last night.
I shared (in my SP Offspring thread) a photo of young Zach Haeven as a child (in comparison with his older sibling, Celeste).

I took this close up snapshot of Celeste & Zachy's mama.

Evie
by Toni
(Head of the SCIA in Intelligence - Aquarius - Family Sim - Hobby: Arts & Crafts)



One of those tender moments that continue to endear us to this game we still love...

Zachy as a toddler snugglin' with Sunny
- who is one of the more patient felines in Tres Lagos ... Look at Sunny's expression!  laughin -



I didn't know toddlers could be fascinated with fish tanks.



Could Zach be another Haeven child to follow in his dad's footsteps?
Big sissy, Celeste, aspires to be the Hand of Poseidon just like her daddy.

Speaking of, here's Zen with his best friend Karyn (by Elle), both at the top of the Oceanography career.



Notice the Crazy Cat Lady, Maddie McMew, lovin' on Sunny.
What are the odds???  laughin


Well, it appears the Haevens have outgrown their humble abode.
I may have to spend this evening knocking down walls & renovating the place to accommodate the four of them & Sunny.
Both Zen and Evie have been wanting another baby (off and on) for awhile now...
So, a bigger home is definitely on the very near horizon for this growing family.

I don't think it's come up before, so you didn't forget anything I said. I faithfully watched every episode. If I remember correctly, the new episodes will be on Showtime, right? I don't get that channel; I'll have to see if I can get my neighbor to record them for me.

Quote :

laughin My brother's first wife had a cat that looked like Sunny, except it was mostly gray. Whenever he talks about it, he talks about how you had to force affection on him because he wasn't a very cuddly cat.

I didn't either. That's a cool picture you got of him; looks like it's through the glass?

I thought I recognized Maddy McMew! It's great to see her again.

So cool you're an X-File fan, too, Lady C.  
I was thinking they were set to do six episodes of the X-Files and it'd be on Fox, but don't quote me.
I hope you're wrong about Showtime, because I don't subscribe to that channel either.  No

Yes, I snapped the picture of toddler Zach from the opposite side of the fish tank.
I kinda liked the effect, too.

Thank you for visiting my thread and for your comments, as always, Cher.

...

Well, just when the Haevens decided to sacrifice their basketball court, build on another bedroom for Zach and do some redecorating ...
All hell done broke loose in the household!

Both Evie and Zen got their wish for another child ... in duplicate! Yes, TWINS!
Oy vey! I certainly wasn't expecting that, but I must admit, I'm rather tickled in a strange, maniacal, masochistic sorta way.  



Here's the Lady of Haeven House expecting her 3rd and 4th babes.
Still lookin' good, Evie!  



Almost simultaneously, as Evie gave birth to the twins (quite the chaos in the household for a bit  laughin ), Zach grew into a teenager.

Zach with his new sibling



I didn't get a chance to take a better snapshot of teen Zach before I shut down my game last night, but will try to get one this evening, if possible, and share it in my Offspring thread.  

Gonna share a pic of the new bambini there now...

I wonder if there are any cheats I can use to at least build extra walls within the apartment or add windows. I knew I cheat that would let me access build mode in dorms, but I don't think it worked with apartments.

Yes, it's the same for me, absolutely! I often just want to jump into playing and not take the time to furnish or decorate more than I have to and the sim days start to get away from me. laughin

Who could say no to that! laughin

Zach and Sunny are cute. I can see Maddie knows exactly what is expected of her!

Yay for twins! I hope the Haevens can keep up with the building and remodeling necessary for their expanding family.

I am wrong. It's Twin Peaks that will be on Showtime.

Zach is going to be a fantastic older brother! Maybe he can help Evie so she won't be so exhausted with those twins.

Em, I've done a bit of research and I believe I haven't found any safe, working cheats for occupied apartments.

Have you seen these?

Quote :
Try one or all the following:
boolProp aptSubLotSpecificToolsDisabled false
boolProp aptBaseLotSpecificToolsDisabled false
boolProp apartmentBuildBuyRestrictions false

But I most certainly can't say if they work or if they'll bonk your game, ESPECIALLY if the apartments are inhabited. No
I'm not brave enough to give any of those a whirl & I'm thinking it might not be worth it, Em.

She's truly crazy for cats!

I think they MAY be okay with only one possible issue: 6 Sims & only 1 bathroom.  affraid
I can put both boys (Ezekiel & Zach) in one bedroom & the two girls in another (Celeste & Chloe).
But I'm not sure if there's room to build on another bathroom.
Gonna explore that more today, if possible.

I'd forgotten how very helpful teens can be when there are little ones in the house, Cher.
Celeste and Zach were always holding the babies & getting them bottles.
They changed plenty of their wee siblings stinky diapers, too.  

Thank you, Cher & Em, for stopping by my Sim Antics thread, as always.  

~*~

I was able to play for quite awhile last night, but some of the snapshots I took, I can share in my Offspring Project thread.
Several Tres Lagos kiddos have blossomed into their next phase of life. So, I'll post there next.  

It's always so cool when you have something in your head about a Sim's life or future...
And they decide to take the ball and run with it before you, the OOOGS ( Love it, Em!), direct them to!!!

This is just one of those occurrences.
When Zach was a child, Callista was a teen, but they became friends.
I thought they'd make a lovely couple and couldn't wait for Zach to become a teen to see.
Well, just as I was about to direct Zach to check Callista out (they have one chemistry bolt so far), she flirted with him on her own!
I don't know exactly what she did, but next thing I know, she's got hearts comin' out of her!
He gave her one squeeze and the rest, as they say, is history.  

Now this is interesting, because Callista is a Capricorn (not very outgoing) like Em.
And Em, do you recall how your Simself was always quite the flirt & social butterfly, which was rather unexpected considering your sign???
How cool is that? Callista, born of your Will, & my very first Capricorn in Tres Lagos (after you I love you ), takes after your Simself in the "opposite sex department"!!!
She decided she wanted Zach & she made the first move (assertive in love just like SimEm)!
Love these "meant to be" moments, don't you?
Look how happy they seem together!!!



Callista (of Em's Will & Sugah's Anaïs) and Zach (of Toni's Evie & Zen)
(Capricorn - Knowledge (no career path yet) and Leo - Popularity - Politics)



Opposites really do attract sometimes!
And with no help from the OOOGS!  girlwinkin

No, I hadn't seen those cheats. There is a really similar one for dorms that I've used in the past, but it didn't work on the apartments. The dorm cheat I actually used to use on community lots so I could access the build catalogue while visiting. If I tried them, I don't think I would try to add on outside of the apartment, that seems like a bad idea, but I might be brave enough to try changing things within the apartment. Thanks for taking the time to look that up and share it, whether it turns out to be useful or not.

laughin A shortage of bathrooms seems to be a problem in my hood as well.

Yes, I find that teens are very helpful with the younger siblings! Things definitely get easier in large families once there's a teen in the house.

That's too funny! Sounds like she's a girl after my own simself's heart. (Unlike real life Em, who is definitely NOT a social butterfly, flirt, or assertive in love. At all!) I remember Ari's simself was the same way. laughin

Callista and Zach make a very cute couple!

Yes, she's still with us, Sandy.
I rarely let my elder Sims pass on, since I'm especially fond of the seniors in game.
Besides, she just found love with Taavi Mikkola (Suvi's dad).
Taavi (of SimFinland girlwinkin ) is her first and last love.
For all of her days, she's never been interested in extending love to anyone or anything other than her 5 precious furry purries...
Until Taavi came along.

Em, you are welcome.
I will be interested to learn if you do try the cheat for moving walls, etc., in apartments.
I hope it doesn't mess up your game, as I said.
I haven't read many positive things about the attempts to redesign occupied apartments thus far.  No

I knew you'd appreciate that about Callista, Em.  
The fact that the real (Capricorn) Em (shy, rather introverted & not assertive in love) is nothing like (Capricorn) flirty, forward SimEm is such a hoot!
And (Capricorn) Callista seems to be following in your SimEm's footsteps ... Love it!

I've been rather focused on growing up my current Offspring teens (while giving all the families quality lives, of course laughin ) lately.
And like some of you, I am really enjoying this project.  
Also, I've been pondering which new Sims I'll be moving into Tres Lagos to be fruitful and multiply.
The possibilities are endless & it's not easy to choose!  
(Like Cher, I'd prefer to use Sims that haven't been chosen yet, but that's not etched in stone.)

In the meantime...
You may recall my Suvi Mikkola & Jacob Roarke (and his Wonder Dog Rico).
Suvi and Jacob fell in love and were engaged (back in February or March) before the Offspring Project.
And though I am wanting to match up different creators' Sims, these two darlings truly wanted to participate.
They are such sweethearts (married now, ready, willing & able   ). How could I say no?
I haven't taken many pictures for some reason , but there should be more later hopefully.



Rico Roarke: Rescue Ranger
Love the tongue sticking out! Look how happy the pittie is to be going to work!
(I wish I could say the same for his grumpy driver. Rolling Eyes  )



Jacob & Suvi
(Family Sim, Taurus, Architect's Apprentice & Gamer ... Family Sim, Taurus, Detective & Gamer)



It's purely coincidental that they have so much in common, as Jacob (& Rico) moved into the 'hood just this past February and Suvi has lived in Tres Lagos since last June.  
They are both moving up in their careers, have padded their bank account, bought a new house & are expecting their first child very soon.

That's a great picture of Rico riding shotgun. He's so eager to go to work.

Which is more than I can say for the grouchy-arse human next to him, Cher!

Added on Saturday 5/30 @ 10:45am:

I was able to play for a little while late last night, so here's the latest with the Roarkes: Jacob, Suvi & Rico...



Rico is such a good boy in the tub.
I like how he's looks up at Suvi (often) while she's bathing him. I love you



If you haven't downloaded NixNivi's way cool trampoline (The Sim Bouncer) yet, you really should.
I love having it in my game and my Sims enjoy it mucho, too!

Jacob
- having a blast on the trampoline and earning body points -




Update on the Roarkes:
Jacob has been promoted to a Draftsman and Suvi has been promoted to Lieutenant.
The happy couple were blessed with a new family member just before midnight last night.  

Do follow me HERE to see a pic of their wee new addition...

He is so cute! Also, Jacob looks happy on the trampoline! I love that object-the Sims love it too-it's a good thing that they can get fun at the same time as body skill/fitness!
