Spoiler:
Everytime I see the family pictures in your overview chapter, I'm tempted to print them out and frame them for my desk... it doesn't get any more 'family' than this! :hugs:

Also - all your Sims are so pretty! I'd need CAS Screen, Bodyshop, SimPE and two tons of CC just to get close to that... :banghead:

Triple Update and the end of week 7! :D

Twilightoutside
Spoiler:
Thanks for your lovely comment! :D The overview updates are my favourite as well. I love the family portraits so much that I have all the overview pictures set as screensavers xD So I'm really glad that you enjoy them as well! :)
I'm a bit of CC addict! I love pretty things and I'm always snatching CC up from all over the internet! I think I have about 5GB of CC which means that my game does take a while to load.

I just read through it and I absolutely adored it! It made me want to start my own 4 founder BACC so that's what I'm doing!
Your families and houses are super cute! I would ask to use your CC folder but 5 gbs, dear god, how do you even find stuff in that?

First update for week 8!

Spoiler:
Thank you so much! If you decide to post your BACC let me know :) I've been acquiring CC over the ages and althrough my downloads folder is not an utter mess, it isn't what you would call organised xD Here's a link to one of my favourite CC makers -> http://poppet-sims.tumblr.com/ She's got tons of amazing stuff especially if you're into maxis match stuff. Enjoy! :)

All caught up!
Spoiler:
Congratulations on the new rotation! Your neighborhood is definitely growing fast. It's good to see some townies and NPCs marrying in - always good to get fresh genetics going. Sad to say goodbye to the founders, though.

Week 8 Winter update is up!

raebeth47
Spoiler:
Thank you! It is getting harder and harder to say that I've finished a rotation! Week 8 is going to be the longest one yet! Yes, I love having new genetics in the pool! I also wish that someday I will have other surnames in town aside from the first four. However, I am not using my earned CAS sims, I have enough sims to play with without adding more new families! Any new surnames will have to be acquired the old-fashioned 'marry a townie' way! It seems that all my founders will be saying farewell this rotation. It's so sad to see them go, but at the same time it shows how much time has passed since I first started Elwood Rose!

Spoiler:
Rotations do take longer and longer in a BaCC. My last one took me over a year to play! But then, I mostly just play a few hours on weekends.
Always nice to have diversity in surnames, but it does seem your sims are only now starting to get interested in townies, rather than other playable sims. Looking forward to more surnames in town soon!

Spoiler:
A year! Wow! You do have a lot of families in your bacc! It's true what you said about the townies and residents! The upside is that more townies will end up joining Elwood Rose in the future, for sure, since half the town will end up being related to each other! xD

Nice updates!
Spoiler:
Sad to see Dianna go. But glad Lyla is settling in and their family is growing!
Good for Oliver, enjoying himself. I have a very hard time not making my sims settle down with one person and have families. But if he does find that one person that just really clicks, that's great!

Spoiler:
It's always sad to see a founder go :( However, at the same time it makes me realise how much time has passed since I first started playing Elwood Rose.
I have the same problem when playing, I love happy families too much so my sims always end up finding someone in the end! If it weren't for ACR making Thom and Carmen cheat on each other I wouldn't have ever split up that family either. However, in the end, it spices up the story a little!

I said it once, I say it again: your Sims are soooo pretty! And I don't mean just template-face-1 pretty, but really pretty!

How do yo manage all these marriages and the guests actually sitting down at the right places instead of standing all over the place?

Lovely new businesses - where did you get the lights for the Nitelite?

Like Crystals Look - and her starsprinkled shirt makes her a star in my mind! ;)

New update!

Spoiler:
I'm still unsure about the make over but she's stuck with the white hair till the next rotation for sure. I do love her and Keiran together! I had almost given up that I would ever find a match for him!


Twilightoutside
Spoiler:
Thank you! With the marriages it's a nightmare getting all (or let's say most) of the sims to sit down but I've found that having the wedding party thrower close to the arch when the guest arrives ensures that guests hang out in the vicinity of the wedding bench set-up. Then when I'm sure everyone is there I click on the sims to get married and sims will just troop to the benches to watch the ceremony. Unfortunately not everyone behaves, which is why I sometimes end up with sims standing in the middle of the wedding isle!
I got the lights for Nite Lite from here
