Oh, this is going to be fun. I'm always shocked, again, at how fast needs decay in TS1 after playing other versions for so long. Great job so far with the house and everything!

Thank you so much! I'm glad you're liking it so far! ^^ I know right? I'm so used to TS2, where their needs don't plummet as much.

I like it too. I don't remember you could put signs up to stop animals coming on to your lot.

Thank you! I'm glad you like it. :D

Yeah, you can. Simply go to the Decorative category in Buy Mode, click on Other (the plus sign) and it should be the first item there. It's called the "Stray-Away" Pet Prevention System. It came with the Unleashed EP, so if you don't have that installed then it won't show up for you. I think it costs §15, if I remember correctly.

Enjoyed chapter 2, very fun. It's amazing how hard it is to keep 8 sims happy in TS1. Love your little thought bubble explantations. :) Off to read the next chapters now.

I 100% got the Picture-in-Picture meddling reference. One of my favorites growing up. :D

I did not even remember how fast NPC's showed up, but you are right, they were really fast. lol Good thing sometimes. This has been so fun to "watch" and relive. :)

I had no idea TS1 had any sort of chance card! That's so cool!!! I know you don't feel like you have accomplished much, but it seems like you were getting lots of promotions and have upgraded a lot of things. That seems like progress to me. :) Nice job!

@peachy123uk Yeah, it's a nice trip down memory lane. I get so nostalgic every time I play because it's been so long, hehe. :)

@ciyrose Ayyy, Scooby-Doo gang unite! :highfive: Thought bubble explanations? I'm afraid I don't get what you mean (probably because I'm still half-asleep since I just woke up, hahaha). Yeah I love how fast the NPCs show up, and I didn't know about the chance cards either. Honestly, these little perks make me love and appreciate the game even more. And yeah I guess you're right about me making significant progress, because I only just finished the first week and I already have one bed in the house. ^^

Thank you so much, everyone! I'm glad you're all enjoying it and I'm giving some of you fond memories of TS1. :heart:

Oh, I was meaning the way you use their little images in either their speaking or thought bubbles over the sims head to explain what they are thinking or say to you. :) Yes, Scobby-doo was the best. :heart:

Ah okay. Got what you meant now, lol. I actually find it hard to come up with suitable contexts and dialogues, so I appreciate the fact that you like them. ^^

Woo, great job! That was a fun update, and they are starting to get more and more promotions. It is always amazing how long it takes some jobs to come up. Less of an issue now with TS3 or 4, but TS2 I always laugh at the fact it could take like a week to get into the criminal career. Don't you just start DOING that job? :D

Gotta love the strange sims logic!

@peachy123uk Thanks a lot! I'm happy so many people enjoy my narration/writing style. :smooch: Yes I love quirky TS1 NPCs like Claire, hahaha.

@ciyrose Promotions are the best, to be honest! :tongue: And I know right? Why do they have to make jobs so demanding and time-consuming. I haven't played TS3 or TS4 so I don't know how the job aspect is in those games.

Chapter 7 is now up, everyone! Enjoy! ^^

What a fun couple of days that seemed like it was. Great job on all the promotions too!
Spoiler:
I'm pretty sure business is referencing "Office Space", I'm not 100% sure which on the police one is for. There are so many it could be. Peggy's could also be a few things.....not sure on that one either?
Also, Mary "Boom Boom"? Really maxis? :rotfl:

I'm sorry but I don't think I understood what you were referencing in the spoiler. :(

And thank you so much! ^^ I feel a sense of accomplishment every time one of my Sims comes home with a promotion, lol. To be honest, the more I play this challenge the more I enjoy it hehe. I actually finished the challenge today in-game, and I miss it already. :cryingeyes:


Chapter 8 is now up, everyone! Hope you like it. :grin:
