I might start doing them! Even if it means downloading pose boxes to properly situate everyone. XD

I learned pretty early on that too lazy to actually take family photos with pose boxes every rotation lol. But I do take screenshots of the family picture that shows when you click on a household in the neighbourhood. It's an easy way to quickly capture the family in one shot!

Finally making some serious inroads on catching up writing. I only have two more chapters of Week 7 to write. I'm still playing, but trying to write more than I play. I really want to trying to finish some of these challenges I've started.

I'm playing the first round of college of rotation 8. The kids are starting to pair up a little bit. Most of them want to intermarry their friends from when they were teenagers. Which I want to do a little of that, but honestly, I would like to branch out a bit and not have so many sims intermarry right away. I have a list of townies I want to move in and I can't do that if the kids just want to marry each other. But of course families like the Diems are trying to marry into every family in the neighborhood. It's only right for a founding family, right?
Thank so much Thai for the siggy!

I made the massive mistake of allowing two families to go for the 10 kids want, and hate myself for it a bit. And a third family is just adopting a new kid every day. What have I done?

I'm trying to keep things fresh for my game, so I'm compiling a list of new LTWs, and thinking about including a random event roll at the start of each household's round. Has anybody else done this?

Compiling a list of new ltw's sounds like a good idea.. Can I ask what ideas you have? Honestly so tired of completing the same ones haha..

Not a lot so far. I made a thread: viewtopic.php?f=72&t=5242

To be fair, most of my sims end up perma plat just through living life, so it doesn't make a ton of difference, but I feel like it gives them more personality.

I haven't done them in a while, but I follow a lot of people on tumblr who do a ROS roll at the beginning of the rounds. I like the idea but I always forget to roll, so I just gave up on it. :lol:

I added some ideas to the alternative LTW lists. I've been seeing more people use ROS rolls. I think it's kinda fun, but I haven't tried them yet.
