Combining All the Bin Sims Into One Sim?

Combining All the Bin Sims Into One Sim?

Postby nooboostar » May 27th, 2021, 5:58 am

Hi there, everyone, hope you're all doing great and staying safe! :hugs:

While struggling to fall asleep last night (as usual) my brain thought of something interesting: is it possible to frankenstein all the bin families' genetics together so that you end up with a single Sim whose family history connects and involves all the bin families somehow.

I'm struggling to think of how I could do this as I haven't memorized all the bin families (and I can't even load up my game to check since my laptop is kaput). So I figured I'd log onto the forums and post this question. I mean, discussing Sims genetics is always fun right?

Let me know what your thoughts are on this theory and how you'd go about doing this genetic mashup. Do you think it's even possible to do? I'm looking forward to your opinions, as well as the overall discussion. :D

P.S: for context I'm only talking about the bin Sims that generate every time you create a new neighborhood and if you have all the packs installed. I'm also including the Kim and Kat families that can be found in the occupied lots bin. So, I'm basically not counting any of the bin families from the premade hoods and sub-hoods.

Sounds an interesting idea, i think i would have to play them rotational and match them if their are single. I think some of them might be too old, and the others should have families and their children marry only children born with those of the sim bin families. I think that's the way i would do it. Hope this helps. :hugs:

Here is a link https://sims.fandom.com/wiki/Family_bin to sims bins families. It gives you a list of the ones that would just be in the New neighborhood. :)

I like Peachy's idea! For the Sims that are too old to hace kids you could make an exception and make them an Adult child or two in CAS, that way they could be part of the playthrough too

or age them down if you have either the sim blender or use another alternative.

It's also worth noting that some of the bin sims have broken faces - I know Jessica Picaso does for sure. Any kids she has won't have her genetics until they hit YA or adulthood. There are ways of fixing it, but it would require SimPE.

That said, I like Peachy's idea of playing them in a rotation! It'd be a pretty big 'hood though, with 11 households straight out the gate if you're including the Kim & Kat families.

Those are some pretty good ideas! Aging the Goodies down is something I always considered doing, but the creating an adult child for them in CAS is a pretty creative method too. Alternatively, they could always adopt a toddler/child/teen to diversify the gene pool and make the family mixing easier. I'm concerned about the Newson and Ottomas families though, since they have a lot of children so it'll make things messy and complicated lol.

The idea of doing a rotational gameplay with the end goal of having a single Sim descended from all the bin families would be a neat idea actually! Also, I didn't know that Jessica Picaso had a broken face template as well! I thought only Priya Ramaswami had it. I wonder if any other bin Sims suffer from the broken face template. :hmm:

Thanks for the link by the way, Peachy, it'll make the brain storming process easier. :P

You could just take the oldest child from the Newson or Ottomas. Or choose a male and female from each family. I am not bothered about broken face templates Or you could combine some households not to make your hood to big. Your welcome Nooboostar. Always here to help :spin:

Those are some good suggestions, Peachy! I think including the Gieke and Larsons (the bin families that come with Bluewater Village) would also help with the genetic diversity. :thup:

Ooh i love Chester Gieke but never been that keen on the Larsons. I have no idea why lol. But hopefully once you get your game running again, can't wait to see what you come up with. :)

Although I never played with the bin families, the Larsons always seemed like a boring pair to me so I get what you mean haha. Chester was fun to play with for the Valentine event I participated in this year ! His genes, however, are quite... unique... to put it nicely. :lol:

Yes his are unique but that hopefully makes the gene pool interesting.

Oh it definitely will. There are going to be a lot of unique-looking Sims in the 'hood since there's going to be a mixing of a large number of bin families lol. :tongue:

Question: is there a way to move the bin families between 'hoods without borking the game? The only method I know of is putting the family with their house into the Lots & Houses Bin, but apparently the wiki says that will corrupt the neighborhood you place them in. It would be really cool to have a megahood just with the bin families. :tongue:

I am not completely sure but can simpe do it. If not you might be able download the families from sites, i know that could take awhile. Or look for megahood to download with all the premades i am sure there is one. "Instead, please check out http://www.sims2wiki.info/wiki.php?titl ... oving_Sims for detailed instructions of what to do.
To my knowledge, you can also download a clean and ready-to-play Maxis-families neighbourhood on MTS2." this is from another megahood blog i read, or this one https://meetme2theriver.livejournal.com/63030.html. I always wanted to download a megahood but i don't really understand the instructions. Hope this helps in some way. :)
