I'm back again with a new BACC!

I hope you enjoy Elwood Rose and thank you for reading! :D I'll be following the same set of rules I used last time (found here: http://redmond-flats.weebly.com/origina ... rules.html) but I'll be adding little tweaks of my own.

And the cuteness continues :starry:
Spoiler:
Congratulations to your first Business District! Will we see Henry establishing his new household this or next rotation? Poor Ayden, I hope he forgives his girlfriend and make up with her - of course, doesn't mean she can't make out with Zach anymore :whistle:

Just finished reading this and I've really enjoyed it! I love all the families and your sims are so cute. I can't wait to see what other antics the families get up to next. :D

Thank you! Yes, Henry will be establishing his new household with Michelle Smith this rotation (right after the North II update). Zach's causing quite a stir in Elwood Rose as you will continue to see in this new update!

I love the Smith family, with all their kids! Emma really is a gorgeous sim, the Smith's have damn good genetics. Ashton and Lyla are a really cute couple! Really nice update, makes me really jealous that I don't have TS2, so I can't attempt a BACC. :cry:

Short update means quick update! :D

Lewis
Spoiler:
I have a soft spot for the Smith family as well! Thank you! I had uninstalled my sims 2 when I installed my sims 3 copy but after a while I kind of realised that I loved the way sims looked in sims 2 much more than in sims 3...so I began to miss them, reinstalled the game, and have been happily playing sims 2 since then! It's not that I hate ts3, in fact I love it's open world aspect and gorgeous scenery but I just never grew the same kind of attachement to my ts3 sims the way I did with my ts2 ones. I'm sorry you can't attempt a BACC :( because it's loads of fun! Playing one family and then another provides interesting gameplay!

It's kinda sad to see all the original sims age into elders, but satisfying at the same time.
Oliver is so sweet! His relationship with Carmen is adorable. Great update!

New update! :)

Spoiler:
I get really sad watching my founders age up, especially since I know that for some of them, their time is soon up. However, at the same time it shows how much time has already passed and how much Elwood Rose has grown since then and I get super excited when their kids start their own families!

I just found this BaCC and it actually inspired me to start a new one and post it! So thanks for that! I love how there's a story to everyone and yet it's not overwhelming. I'm only just getting caught up so I can't give a detailed reply, but I just wanted to pop in and say I was reading! :D :drinks:

ALSO: Your CC is to DIIIE FOR. I love all your hair and skins, oh my gosh, like.. Yes.

That's so great! I hope you're enjoying the challenge! I think out of all sims challenges I tried, the BACC is definitely my favourite one so far! My CC is mostly 'maxis match'. Thank you for your lovely comment! :)

Really enjoying this!

I love your big families, and all the relationships between the teens in the different families. I'm anticipating some really adorable 3rd generation kids ahead.

Also, your houses are really nice.

I've spent the last two days reading your BaCC. It's so much fun!!! I love all the drama that existed across the board. :D Can't wait to read more!

Spoiler:
But I have to admit, except for the Winter's founding couple, I felt as if no relationships is sacred in this city. LOL. everyone seem to have some sort of history with one another and they have qualms about stealing someone's girlfriend or cheating at all. Thom shocked me many times over and I"m surprise the whole lot hadn't exploded from all the jealousy and tears by now. Not to mention, it's almost as if the whole town are romance sims. It's too bad i loved all of them and wouldn't change them in any way.

i love it though and is looking forward t see more.

Also, i can't help but admit that some of the babies picture cracks me up. You know, the ones where the parent feed the babies their bottles and their eyes were big and wide in shock. lol. it's as if they're were shock that their parents were feeding them questionable milk. maybe spoiled milk perhaps? lol. :rotfl:

Nice updates!

So exciting to see the 3rd generation being born! And the 2nd generation kids are really doing well for themselves. I'm impressed that Annabelle managed to own 4 businesses, 2 of them rank 10, before even reaching adulthood.

New update! :)

Iya
Spoiler:
Thank you! :) I have ACR installed which is why sims are not so goody goody. It's thanks to ACR that I have any interesting gameplay to document because if it were only my usual playing, there would be happy families all around which although it's all nice and fluffy, it makes for very boring updates. Nope, Thom and Carmen were the only initial Romance sims, there are now a couple of the children who are Romance sims as well so it looks like the tradition will continue!
Haha that's true! About the babies, that's exactly what I'm thinking when that happens! Glad you're enjoying it and thanks for commenting! :)

Spoiler:
Thank you! I'm really excited to play the 2nd generation kids as seperate households now! :) There's something special about playing a sim from baby till elderhood! Yes, Annabelle is one determined sim!
