Oh, I was trying to guy the references for the promotions you mentioned in the last update.

Great update as always, although less going on this time with the promotions. The house is starting to look really nice though!

Well done for completing your challenge. You said you didn't know what to do with the eight sims can you get them promoted all to their top of the careers maybe. Have them all go with their partners and maybe do a rotational play of the houses. Have families. :)

Thank you! I feel like I achieved something huge, hahaha. Probably because I never finish my challenges. :rotfl: That's actually a good idea! I'll move them all out with their respective partners (if they have one). I just built some nice houses, so I think I'll move them into those. Maybe as a bonus I could do a "where are they now" post in the future? :hmm:

I don't know why I haven't read this before, but I had a slow afternoon so I just read the whole thing in one sit! And it was hilarious, there's seriously so many things I didn't remembered about the Sims 1! And now I remember how much I usted the "needing friends to get promoted" and the roaches lol! But honestly, all those little things are what make this the game we fell in love years ago!

I really enjoyed these little aventures! It was so sad to get to the end know it was over, the little pool as a partir gift was a sych a sweet detail it kinda made my heart hurt :cry:

So yeah, congrats on completing your first challenge! It was really awesome! :applause:

Thank you, @Salem! :smooch:

The fact that you read the entire thing in one sitting means a lot to me, because it shows me that I'm not boring and people are enjoying my content. :tongue:

You're so right! It's the little things that make The Sims the iconic game that it is. I feel like it wouldn't be the same without them. The pool as a parting gift was a last-minute spur-of-the-moment idea actually, hahaha. I'm glad you liked it. :D

Again, thank you so much! :heart:

Somehow I missed the end of this set, I ended at day 8 for whatever reason, so I went and caught all up now. All the way up to the end was great. The pairings that got together were fun, even if they did take some ups and downs. :) The roaches were really crazy. Is it because they didn't have flooring? I have no idea what caused it in TS1, just a thought. The house was looking really good by the end, nice job with all the updates you were able to do, and I loved the little parting gift of a pool! Oh hey, grill food is actually different than the rest of the food. :)

Congrats on finishing the challenge, it was fun to read and remember all the little crazy things about TS1. It easy to remember why it got me started on playing all the rest of these for years and years. :D

This was such a fun read! It was quick and interesting and easy to binge!

I love your creative narrative style and how quirky how all of the characters were.

I can't wait to read more from you, either from TS1 or other sequels!

Thank you so much @ciyrose! I still can't believe I actually finished it, lol. It was such a hectic and wild ride, but I enjoyed every single minute of it. The couples were my favorite part, especially whenever they would autonomously do something cute or sweet with each other. On the other hand, the roaches and broken sinks were my least favorite part :haha:. I honestly lost count of how many times I had to deal with those issues.

Thank you, @graymondaysleep, that means a lot to me. I'm glad you enjoyed binge-reading this crazy challenge. :tongue: I'm pretty preoccupied with my graduation project for university at the moment, but once that's finished I'm planning on doing some TS2 challenges. I have the neighborhood and Sims ready. I just need to find the time to play with them, lol.

Spoiler:
It's always fun to see more Sims 1 gameplay!

I love that they got money for their house being desperate.

So weird your slobs are the ones cleaning everything up!

Uh oh Aaron. :nono:

At least they have a bed to sleep in at the end of the first week.

Sims 1 was such a funny game. I miss it!

I'm sure Mrs. Crumplebottom has great moves. :lol:

They're all movin' on up and the house is getting bigger!

That sink just keeps breaking.

Wow! I didn't know there was a chance of getting shot.

Yay for Peggy/Trip!

So many couples getting together now.

Things have really gone down hill with Peggy and Trip.

This was such a fun challenge to read!

This was such a fun, refreshing read. I miss TS1 so much sometimes, it was hard and fast and hilarious. The Maxis humour hit different. ALSO I'm always amazed at how much more Maxis got away with in the day. How nightclubs always meant literal raves with cages and glowstick candy? Hello??

Thanks for posting! :slaphappy:

@108sims The best part about the couples was that they happened naturally. I simply noticed them and made them official lol. Yeah, TS1 has its quirks and I absolutely love Maxis' sense of humor too! The sinks constantly breaking and the non-stop roach infestations were probably the most annoying parts of the challenge, to be honest. Other than that, everything was fine haha. :)

@moveobjectsron I know right? I'm surprised at how much stuff Maxis got away with. TS4 is soooo family-friendly compared to TS1 and even TS2 (haven't played TS3 much so I can't compare). It's actually one of the reasons I prefer the older games in the franchise. I've played TS4 a few times and I personally don't find it as exciting as TS1 or TS2 (the CAS feature was awesome, though, so I'll give it that haha). :tongue:

Thank you so much, guys! Glad you enjoyed the challenge. ^^
