Spoiler:
Oooo a surprise baby. That'll make things interesting. The Command Center does like to start pairing off and starting families for sims pretty quickly, so it could have (hopefully) been before he was with Adora.

It really depends for me. I might have ignored the fact Akira had another family, but then I probably would have felt bad and moved Shari in anyways. I would keep Adora and Akira together because it looks like Shari's mother had started another relationship.

Wild toddlers are a handful. You've got to keep a close eye on them!

If I were Adora, I don't know if I could keep it together.

Baby raccoons are adorable!

Having clubs for the kids is super fun. I did that with my legacy kiddos, and it was always interesting to see who got along and what they would do.

Spoiler:
What a plot twist!!! I turned those MCCC settings off ages ago because I didn't want the unplayed households having a whack ton of kids (like Lily Feng, who literally hates children...), I can't imagine what I'd do if it had been one of sims' partners! I think moving Shari in is going to make for some interesting gameplay, though, so moving her in with the family seems like the right call to make.

The toddler tablets are amazing. So great for keeping them inside the apartment, and they teach all the skills, to boot!

The bees do not seem pleased about the change in location! New apartments aside, I have yet to actually figure out how to keep those lil buggers happy.

Wow the baby raccoon are adorable. <3

Cat lover seems very fitting for Shari! Also, very excited to see what the next gen will get up to in the kids club.

Spoiler:
He doesn't have any relationship with Shari's mother, which would suggest it was awhile ago...so hopefully? I'll be more wary of MCCC in the future :lol:

I didn't really want to leave Shari in the townie pool forever, considering she's related to the next generation. But I was really unsure when I first discovered it all! I think Shari's mother is remarried with kids, so I'd say she's fine with it :D

Gosh she really kept me on my toes! I had no idea it would make such a difference!

Me neither, she did a great job holding it together.

They really are!

It is going to be fun to see how they get along as time goes on :)


Heather:
Spoiler:
It was so unexpected! It really does just pair off anyone and everyone, there's quite a few unplanned babies in the 'hood now. I didn't feel like I could leave Shari just sitting in the townie pool, especially as she's related to Taeko. Otherwise, no harm done, I guess? :lol:

That tablet is a lifesaver! All my toddlers will be having one now, I reckon!

I've never been able to keep happy bees. Maybe there's some trick we just don't know?

Cookie was the cutest kitten!

A toddlerhood spent with Cookie had an influence on her :lol: I'm looking forward to getting the kids together and seeing what happens!



Thanks guys! :heart:
As luck would have it, I had a spare moment today to finish the Vatore update, so all of winter is up now!
Plus there's a lil post on the newest household, joining the Culpeppers in Spring, if you're interested :)

Spoiler:
Woo exciting to see a new household added!

I just love the weird fashion choices the vampires have.

I think it's funny that vampires actually fly through the ceiling when they fight. That has to hurt!

Maybe Adora's not with Akira! :O

Congrats on completing the MySims collection! I haven't been able to complete that one either.

I felt bad, but I laughed at Caleb's present. :rofl:

What a cute family. :)

Spoiler:
I'm so excited to share their antics with you guys!

It's brilliant, isn't it? :D

Part of the risks of sparring I suppose? Their upstairs neighbours are probably a bit concerned :lol:

Anything is possible with those two!

I've never managed to complete it properly, I'm guessing Caleb just lucked out at the flea market this time :lol:

Me too :lol: Poor Caleb

I don't have favourites :shifty: but they're definitely one of my favourite families!

Unrelated: I love your new Christmas-y avatar!


The first update of Spring is up now!

Thanks! I like your Christmas avatar too. Caleb looks so cool. :D

Spoiler:
Random, but sometimes Jo will come up as the random sim in CAS when I go to create families, and I'll think yay it's Jo!

The life of being a not so famous celebrity. No nice mansion for him. :lol:

Poor Snickers, he looks really bad off!

Poor Adora being home with the girls while Akira gets to leave the house, even if it isn't for a fun reason.

I would never be able to look at Father Winter the same way again.

They're growing up so fast *sniff*

Mackenzie and Jo are cute! Jo is me. I need to make sure my cats like whoever I'm going to be dating. (If I ever date lol)

Sam, I love your new icon. :lol:

Spoiler:
Wow, Venus and Elsie are such cuties. <3 <3 I don't think I have ever used that eyeliner, but it looks amazing on Elsie! Very excited to see your gameplay with them!

I want to know the backstory of the man selling an entire table full of spoiled food, and bubbles.

Mackenzie seems to have very colourful taste in clothing! Also, that picture of Jo gazing at her from behind feels very relatable. :lol:

I love when two sims just click like that. :)

Salim seems like he would get along well with Candy. ;)

Wow!! I only played TS4 for a short while but you make the game look so gorgeous!! i cant afford all the expansions you have so maybe thats why i think your game play looks 10 times more interesting than mine lolol!

even still, this is one of the best sims 4 stories ive read so far. all of the sims are unique and quirky and i love the intermingling of the neighbours!!

i cant wait to read what Norah and Miko have been up to!! :D

108sims:
Spoiler:
That's how Caleb chose to dress for the festive period :lol:

That's how I found Jo! I guess she must be like a premade sim or something? Her aesthetic too good to ignore, and I added her to my save.

Poor guy though, sleeping on a bench :lol:

I swear I start every season there with a sick cat.

I feel really bad for Adora, bless her. She's not not happy, but she definitely doesn't have the life I thought she would!

:lol: I love that he comes to these parties

You can really feel time progressing when you play in rotations, it's weird.

They make a really cute couple! Gotta get the cat's approval, it's very important :yes:


Heather:
Spoiler:
Thanks, Caleb's festive look is perfect :lol:

I think that's the only time I've ever used that eyeliner, it works well for the occults :D I can't wait to share their gameplay!

What's his business model? :D

Mackenzie likes her clothes bright! I didn't half tone her down when she moved in :lol: I love that shot of Jo standing behind her!

It's nice, isn't it? :)

They'll have to start a support group :lol:


graymondaysleep:
I must admit, since playing these guys I've bought a lot more of the dlc! I generally buy stuff when it's on sale, but it's still not cheap :roll:
I'm glad you're enjoying it! I can't take credit for the idea, I totally copied Heather, but it has been so much fun to play! It's just so interesting to see how different their lives are, but also to see them interacting.
You don't have to wait any longer :D

===

Thanks for your comments guys :hug:
I had a spare morning, so there's another update! Spring for the Titan family :)

I love the picture of Oli just hopping in the bin.

Those kids love to make messes.

Miko probably doesn't want to relive her school days.

Floor pancakes are delicious. :lol:

It looks like the bunny might have gotten some of the petals in his eye!

Another baby would be cute. :)

She's surround. The kids have Norah cornered.

Yay for a puppy!

Spoiler:
I did not realize kids could dig through the trash, so that first picture of Oli vaulting over the side of the trash can really caught me off guard. :lol: And I absolutely thought the following picture was of David until I read the caption!

Norah's a fan of the five second rule, I see.

Did you have any problems with her face after aging her up? I can't tell if you did a little behind the scenes MCCC magic, didn't make her a full alien, or just lucked out with the alien aging glitch. :lol:

I love that the twins went through opposite phases. :lol: Definitely would have expected David to be the loud one, and Oli to be clingy!

I feel like when the next generation of kids start befriending each other, it really makes the whole rotational style of play worth it.

Wow, I already love Frankie. <3

Binge read over the last few days, what a lovely bunch. :hugs:

I'm also a big fan of your long distance setting shots, they've got such a cozy TS1 vibe!

Totally normal behaviour, right? :D

Norah & Miko definitely have their hands full!

Who can blame her? :D Having hours of homework to do was the worst.

Five second rule, right?

I hadn't noticed that :lol: you're right!

I was so tempted to give them one during spring, but they were so poor!

I love how disgruntled she looks by it though, and Norah's the one who loves kids!

I love their dog :heart:


Heather:
Spoiler:
I literally discovered it with the twins :lol: it seemed like the kind of mischief they'd get up to! I swear, the boys are practically identical!

Yup! :lol:

I got really lucky - she's a full alien, and I hadn't done any tweaking with MCCC, but luckily there was no change. I've played ahead a little, and she doesn't seem to have passed many features on to her boys, so I think they might also be safe from the glitch. Hopefully.

It's like the game can't tell them apart either :lol:

It's so nice to have them grow up alongside each other! I can't wait to see them interact more as time goes on.

He's a great new addition to the family :heart:


apocalypticautumn:
Wow, there's a lot there to get through, so hat's off to you :D
I used a camera mod for the TS1-style shots! This one! I fell in love with it the moment I saw it, as a huge lover of TS1!

Thanks guys! :hug:
I had a spare morning today, so you get another update!

Spoiler:
Summer and Dusty have a nice, big, new apartment now! :D

Yes, a penthouse definitely needs a pool. Very classy!

You always have to have one random guest show up, or it wouldn't be the sims. :lol:

Summer and Dusty are perfect toghter. :heart:

I had to laugh at the guests creeping outside the window instead of just going inside to watch.

I don't want to know why that sim was going to the restaurant nude.

Spoiler:
Aww yay! Dusty and Summer got married woohoo! I wonder if you'll let them have children or if they're gonna be one of those lesbian child-free couples that travel everywhere and live the best lives (god, that is so gonna be me lmfao). I miss Summer Holiday from TS4, mainly because i loved MySims, so it's nice to see her in this story!

A great update, I can't wait to see what's next! :D

It's such a nice apartment!

Can't have a penthouse without a pool, I'm sure that a rule right :wink:

You're right, it's very sims! I do love seeing who turns up though!

Definitely one of my all time favourite couples now! :heart:

I wish I knew why they did that :lol: it wasn't a problem at Norah & Miko's wedding!

Nope, me neither! :D


apocalypticautumn:
Aren't they just the perfect couple? :D I love them so much :heart:
Definitely one of my all time favourites...if I had favourites :shifty:

Spoiler:
Tying the knot was part of Dusty's aspiration, I'm so happy she's finally achieved it :D That does sound like a pretty good future tbh! I played MySims on DS but have no memory of Summer Holiday from that game, which is weird :shrug:

Thank you :hug:

Thanks guys! :hug: I'm so glad you all love Dusty & Summer as much as I do :lol:
I've updated today! Spring for the Bell family is up!

I dunno if she's in the DS, but she's in the Wii version that I played a lot as a kid... I dunno, that's strange haha

ANYWAY:
Spoiler:
When you mentioned that Adora had a job in retail, I shuddered. I hope retail in the sims is nicer than retail IRL. Jeeee.

I feel like Akira didn't want kids and maybe that's why he feels unhappy? I don't want Akira to cheat on Adora but maybe they should spend some time apart and see if distance makes the heart grow fonder? Kind of like how Candy wouldn't leave Dusty alone after they broke up?

I'm not too sure how you want to play the game but maybe it could be an idea?? :D

Also, Cookie is best raccoon-cat.


Awesome update as always, Sam! Can't wait to read more!!

Spoiler:
I'm glad that Adora gets to have some plants! She went through enough already.

Akira might have the 'Offer Rose' and 'Kiss Hands' if he has the romantic trait. Those seem to just popup for me with anyone with Romantic sims. As for complaining about his love life, I don't know what to say. Adora's definitely doing all she can for him.

Does David have responsible parents? :lol:

I don't know why the ladies are so into him? I don't feel like they're happy either, but I also wouldn't know what to do with them. I'm wondering if Adora would be better or worse off without him.

Taeko is cute!

Cookie is a rabid racoon! Good thing he got patched up.

I feel like Adora should keep both kids because at least she takes care of them!

Oooh I've been excited to see how last update's dumpster fire would be handled. :melting:

Spoiler:
I'm not for Adora/Akira trying to make things work. Akira just seems scummy. A Don Lothario love-to-hate-him scummy, but definitely scummy. Poor Adora.
Taeko is insanely adorable! I feel so bad for her, being a huge ooopsie.


Also Cookie could have her own reality tv show, what a cute patoot.
