Congrats on finishing week 5! That's a milestone to celebrate! :party2:

Spoiler:
Go Aunt Tiffany! She's really doing well with everything she does, isn't she? The snapdragons alone are impressive in such a short time. I bet there'll be some use for those.

Oh and the community garden looks very pretty! Looks like the Mesa Vistans like it too.

Uh oh, that night out gambling doesn't seem to have been the best of ideas... But there's a new business coming up, and it needs snapdragons. :hmm: Curious to see what's up with this mysterious Agatha in week 6!


Great update, moving right along! :applause:

Twilightoutside: Good idea on asking my son what he thinks about kicking LaShawn Cameron's @$$, now if I can just remember to do it...
TO and Katri: Thanks for commenting! :party2:

Urban Creep Update - Nitty Gritty version:

To start off Week 6, new arrival Agatha Crystalbotham swindled earned over §2,000,000 with her Crystal Card Club, and used her winnings to purchase the Public Toilet in St Hubert (cuz charging desperate Sims is how Agatha rolls) plus an additional 48 community lots for her new development called Crystal Vista, as well as funding bogus online, bet the suckers don't read the fine print Crystal University. Ooh! Shiny!

Image
(Note Tiffany Zarubin's bag o'cash and the snapdragons Agatha coerced from her at the end of Week 5)

Playable Sims: 102 (+1 added Agatha)
Sim Multiplier: 55 (+10 for 50 community lots +5 for new Uni)
Population: 5610 (+1570)

I now have 12 potential business districts, and 6 near-Tycoons coming up in the rotation, so expect more nice bumps in population.

Wow, that's some quick development! Agatha is clearly an efficient woman with her shady business. Will some unfortunate Mesa Vistans be attending the bogus online university? :lol: Anyway, good progress, well done! :)

Good timing, I just happened to be online on time for a new update. :)

Spoiler:
And it sure was an eventful one! :O

Congrats on the next Business Tycoon! That makes for a satisfying jump in the population.

But oh no, poor poor Diane and poor Stephan too! :sigh: Accidents keep things fresh on their part I suppose, but ow that stings. :ouch I think the smashed urn may result in an angry ghost. I don't think I've ever seen it, so I'm curious to see how it turns out. It's a good thing you managed to stop Devon from sweeping the smashed urn away!

And then another fire. Poor poor Stephan. At least there were no more casualties.

Adrienne has a fun look, and the apartment complex you built is looking good! Looking forward to seeing what she gets up to, and what Stephan has in mind for next week!

Thanks for the nice comment, Katri!
Spoiler:
I had such mixed feelings when Diane died. She's always been one of my favorites, but I'm kind of glad for a little bit of tragedy due to it being realistic. I think because my characters are so ingrained in my head, I'm now looking at Mesa Vista more from the town aspect, and less on the individual households.

Every Tycoon is really gratifying at this point, and I have a few more expected in this round :celebration:

At the rate I'm going it'll be quite a while before we find out what, if anything, happens with a smashed urn.

Thanks again!

Two updates! (Both are brief):

Week 6-3 - Pederson

Week 6-4 - Kerrigan

Yay - Crysthalbotham's here, ready to ruin the next business... :diablo:
From meeting to marriage to baby in four pictures - that was fast ... :sly: :smirk:
Phoebe is cute! And Mesa Vista is growing, yay!

Adrienne and Lavender make a dream team together! I'd totally ship them, but I ship Lavender and Gavin too... uhm, menage a trois? :duck:

Good to see some Mesa Vista again!

Spoiler:
Pederson:

Meadow was probably wise to reject Agatha there, though she might have something else up her sleeve...

Truly a whirlwind romance, in unmistakable sims style! :) Little Phoebe is a cutie.

Phil is a sneaky one - good for him!

Kerrigan:

Adrienne's candle shop looks cute. One more for the score!

All that effort to try and have Lavender as a roommate, and three seconds later she has the hots for Gavin? Typical. Well, maybe the "two roommates for the price of one" arrangement might work.


This was fun! :)

Looks like the Goodies are doing well!

Heh, sims are pretty good at selling stuff to others that have absolutely no use for that stuff. :lol: I remember I had a toystore once, and the clients were mostly parents of teenagers. :P

Annika seems to be growing up well. All the girls are very pretty in their own ways, it's fun how different they all look.

And a baby on the way? Wow, the Goodies are about to be quite busy!


Another fun update! :)
