I have just binged the whole thing in about three days, and it's amazing! I love your default replacements, I love the use of ACR, and I really, really love the family portraits! This is an amazing BACC, and I can't wait to read more.

And I'm back! So sorry for the long wait between updates! :/

Thank you all so much for reading and taking the time to comment! :)

Go on ahead and borrow the ideas, I've borrowed quite a few ideas from other sim players myself. That's why it's so awesome that the sims has such a great community! :)
Yes my game is currently going crazy with quads which is funny since I never changed the default odds since I first started playing Elwood Rose. I guess the game just wants me to populate the town faster!

Thanks for commenting! It does drive me crazy at times but then they are all just so cute that it kind of makes it worth the constant game pausing to make sure no one dies or gets taken away by the social worker!

Oh my gosh, you're back! Your BaCC is so amazing, and I am so excited you're back. I loved your updates, and Cassie is beautiful.

I just spent the past week catching up!
Spoiler:
I'm in love with Elwood Rose all over again. So pretty. And so dynamic. I've been meaning to ask you where you get hair. I love some of the hairstyles you have!

Poor Lyla, I can't believe the game didn't give her a platinum gravestone. She deserves one for sure.

How many semesters are you playing at a time through your Uni rotations? And those kids are certainly keeping themselves entertained lol.
Thank so much Thai for the siggy!

Two fresh new updates! North II & Elwood II :)

Avenie - thank you so much!

Pony
Spoiler:
Thank you so much!
I got a huge chunk of my hair downloads from here: https://allisas.livejournal.com/19103.html
They are amazing!!

For uni, it depends... on a general level I've been pretending as if each uni semester is equal to 1 day in the main hood. Therefore, since each rotation is 7 days long, I've been playing Uni in 3 installments (2 days, 2 days & 3 days). The only reason I'm splitting university into three parts rather than playing it as a whole update for the rotation is due to the fact that although I enjoy playing university, I find it gets boring if I spend too much time playing it consecutively.

Thanks for the link, I'm feeling the need to go on another sims CC shopping spree!
Spoiler:
The cat room is adorable. It's kinda hard to watch the second generation get old. I'm going to be so sad when Henry passes. The kitties are adorable, good luck on that LTW :)

2 NEW UPDATES for Smith II & Smith III families :)

Pony
Spoiler:
It's always a good time for a sims CC shopping spree! :) Here's a link to an awesome resource list by another simmer: http://lesyasun.tumblr.com/Resources
Happy cc shopping! :) Yes, I can't believe that next round I will have to start saying my goodbyes to sims that I've grown up :( However, it goes to show how long Elwood Rose has now been running so on the other hand I'm pretty excited for what lies ahead!

Yay, great updates! I love Elwood Rose. <3 I've just fired up Blueberry Island as well to play some!
You're doing so well with the businesses! I don't think I could do that much business stuff in one rotation - it'd drive me nuts after a while.
I'm pretty sure the Peace of Mind wish makes your Sim permaplat. :)

Thanks for the link. Definitely going shopping when I get home.
Spoiler:
Man those kids grow up so fast. Soon they'll be starting families of their own. I love the businesses these updates. Especially the bookstore and the hair salon. I never though about putting mirrors in front of the chairs like that.
Thank so much Thai for the siggy!

Excellent updates! The genie wish for peace of mind makes your sim perma-plat, so very useful with sims with an awkward LTW. I am also really in awe of your business acumen. I definitely couldn't cope with that many, or come up with that many cool ideas.

I come bearing 2 new updates - university Part 2 & Elwood III

Anne
Spoiler:
I love your BaCC, Blueberry Island! However it's been a while since I found some time to read it :( So I have quite a few updates to catch up on! Looking forward to it :) Thanks for explaining the Peace of Mind wish - never knew that it did that!
Pony
Spoiler:
I've actually finished playing all of Week 11 already (I have a lot of updates waiting to be posted!!) and I'm noticing just how big Elwood Rose is becoming due to all of the kids setting up their own households! There are 24 different households in this rotation!!
Avenie
Spoiler:
Thanks for explaining the genie wish! It will come in handy for sims with 'impossible' LTWs such as 20 pet best friends...
For business ideas, usually I open the sims buy mode catalog, choose a section (such as baths & showers) and set-up a business selling those items! It's been working for me so far but now I'm running out of buy mode items!

Your uni campus looks really nice in the snow. Sybil is beautiful, and I have to know where you got her top from, it's so cute.

Yay updates! :D There's lots of love in the air and I'm loving it, haha! ACR sure does spice things up in BaCCs, doesn't it? Also, love the Harry Potter references! :D

New update!

Pony
Spoiler:
Haha that whole story all started because of the one photo of the headmaster looking at Lucas's butt! xD
Avenie
Spoiler:
Thank you! I believe that Sybil is wearing a whole outfit and not a top. If I remember correctly, you can find it as one of the replacements in the sims 2 default replacement database...
Yep! I found the link: https://sims2defaults.dreamwidth.org/244002.html (it's the 9th picture if you count left to right)
Anne
Spoiler:
ACR is driving me crazy in this BaCC with all the kids and big families! (but I secretly love it!) Glad to meet another Harry Potter fan!
