Ophelia Nigmos has graduated but won't be moving back in with Nervous just yet. She has loose ends to wrap up, including pledging Emily Lee. Ginger Newson is now a Junior and a Philosophy major, which she guesses is as good as anything.

Mary Gavigan has given birth to a little girl, Eve, with brown eyes. Nathan is wracking his brains trying to think who on his side of the family (it has to be his side) has brown eyes. He thinks that gene must've been lurking for decades. Isaiah is not thrilled about having a baby to take care of on top of his backlog of homework, but he doesn't complain. Except to Fuzzbucket the kitten, when no one else is around. Gallagher has called him twice and he's starting to feel stupid for being mad at him. Which doesn't actually make him any less mad, but Gallagher is determined not to lose this friendship.

Finally got myself out of a blank state of creativity and finished the Wright's family home in their private cove.
The Wrights loved it! The kids went right ahead and played cops and robbers on the beach - because it's more fun if it's more difficult to run in the sand
my child sims are going to have muscled legs once they grow up!!!
I was started with Dutch Colonial, and then Craftsman, AND THEN Mediterranean but somehow I ended up with a floorplan from Pinterest! well the important thing is they loved it and that's what matters u v u

Working on my test of time hood and my Daorsus family suffered disaster today. Adeline Daorsus was going through her third pregnancy and managed to make it through the first bit with minimal morning sickness. She's miscarried the pregnancy before this one so I've been keeping a close eye on her and she was platinum and in the green for temp. But then she got her first belly bump and started leaving spots of fire before bursting into flames herself. Her husband Bulus managed to extinguish her though and a few more times when she flamed up a few more times during her pregnancy. But throughout it all, she managed to carry the child to term and maintained a good mood. While nursing her newborn Manlius she burst into flames yet again. Bulus put her out and she took a drink, got to green temp again and went outside to have a quick snack. And again, flames. Bulus who'd been getting increasingly stressed this entire time finally had a mental break and Adeline finally died and because Bulus was still out of it he couldn't plead with Death. Distraught, Bulus invited over Adeline's twin sister Rebekkah and asked her to move in. The hope was that she'd agree to marry him and be a mother to her nephews. He was going to talk to her about it but before he could do anything, he ignited. Rebekkah was caught in the flames as well so couldn't do much except scream, but after Bulus died, she escaped the flames.

She picked up the older child Waldobert, giving the poor orphan a snuggle before putting him down and going inside to tend to Manilius who, through this whole sequence of events, was screaming. She cuddled him as well, then set him down, and then...burned. With no one to save her she burned away, the infant laying on the ground within the flames. The social worker showed up then, of course, and Waldobert went to live with his Aunt Puja as the first orphan of the neighborhood. Next round, he'll move in with his oldest Uncle Armand and hopefully he can forget the horror he was witness to. When he grows up, he may move back into his former family's home. If not to stay, then at least to move the graves from the cursed grounds.

No idea why this all happened. I think the baby was glitchy since every time someone burned they were either holding him or thinking about him.

@Lilana_Astrix Are you patched? Make sure you have the Season's patch installed if you are on disks or repair your game in origin if on the UC, sims should not burst into fire since the Season patch. I would also run Hood Checker and check the lot with the Bat Box.

I'm patched and I've run the hood checker and I have the batbox, but I'm afraid to mess around with it too much. So far, I've just used it to randomize sims to avoid the first-born syndrome.

I've started playing Marka93's The Beginnings of Pleasantview hood.

I moved Victor and Gretle Goth into a house, and moved Simon and Prudence Crumplebottom into a house. Victor and Gretle had a daughter named Frida and a son named Gunther. While Prudence was pregnant with Agnes, Simon got abducted by aliens and was pregnant with his half alien son Caelum. Prudence gave birth to Agnes the day before Simon gave birth to Caelum. I imagine baby Agnes was not happy Simon put her back into her crib with a dirty diaper when he went into labor. Prudence later got pregnant with and gave birth to Cornelia.

Through TwoJeff's school bus mod Gunther is friends with Cornelia which is good, since they will eventually marry and have Mortimer Goth. As of right now though Frida Goth is 2 days away from becoming a Teen and Gunther is 5 days days away from becoming a Teen. Agnes Crumplebottom is 1 day away from becoming a Teen, Caelum is 2 days away from becoming a Teen and Cornelia is 5 days away from becoming a Teen.

Gunther is going to marry Cornelia, but Frida, Agnes and Caelum don't have pre-set spouses. I haven't quite decided what I want to do with them yet.

Why don't you post in the What's Goin On In Your Game Group so that way you can have your own thread dedicated to your Beginnin Pleasantview. Pics would be awesome, but of course not mandatory :P.

As for who to marry Agnes and Caelum to .... do you have other 'spares'? Did you stick w/ just who was already pre-destined, well, other than Caelum of course ... lol? Do you plan on stickin close to cannon or forgin your own path?

I know for me when I think about it I change my mind on what I want to do.... :D

At the start I had been planning to just to stick with who was already pre-destined, but then Simon's alien abduction and pregnancy happened. Frida and Gunther Goth were pre-determined, but Frida doesn't have a pre-planned spouse. Agnes and Cornelia were pre-determined, but Agnes doesn't have a pre-determined spouse. Gunther is Cornelia's pre-determined spouse.

I haven't moved anyone else in yet, the Goths and Crumplebottoms are the only ones in houses. I have been considering moving the Calientes and Pollination Technician 7 into houses because of family trees, but if I try to marry Frida, Agnes and Caelum into those families, it will take time.

I'm up in the air about how closely I want to stick to cannon.

Uberhood: Rhett Hart wants to enlist in the military. Well, okay then. (He wanted it before he met Chloe Curious. If he had any Penny related wants--all my aliens known to the government have to live in Strangetown . . . but he hasn't.) Candy wants an entertainment job. Everyone in the house has a # LTW. Candy clearly wants to move out of Widespot, and her downtownie date du jour brought her a stove as a date gift. I have never seen appliances as date gifts before, but Phil, you rock, and Candy loves you, or at least wants to love you, and will woohoo you soon when she's not so exhausted by pregnancy!

In spite of having Chris Hatch's mod for recognizing when your spouse cheated on you in, Hamilton did not realize that little Venice is not his kid. So the Beeches are . . . happyish. Or pretending really hard. They had the Pleasants and the Patels over for a political dinner and socialized, and the party was a roaring success. Ginny and Lil hit it off like a house on fire. I foresee many late nights, police reports, etc, in their future. Ginny also snuck out with Woody.

You could always add in 1 or 2 CAS made pairs of your own to mix in with the pre-mades. Give you a bit of makin it your own and yet still stayin within cannon. Because it bugged me for the 3 of the families startin at the 2nd generation point I went and made them parents so that everyone started w/ gen 1. Two other things I did was to give Mary Sue biological grand/parents (as well as a bit of history in my head to explain who and where she came from) and finish out Kaylynn's family tree seein as how they gave you some background of it in S3.

I did ponder the idea of puttin some of the Townies in (as playables of course) so that they could have ancestors too and make it a HUGE full hood, but I wasn't sure if that wouldn't make it TOO big and if it'd overwhelm me.

I've yet to decide if I want to put in Erik Charming, who according to S3 info, married Agnes but died on their wedding day. Like you, I'm torn between stickin w/ how it was already done and doin it a different way. I know that neither way is wrong or right, but I want to get it so that it's right for me.

I can't wait to see what you decide

In the Pleasantview megahood, Mary-Sue and Angela are blissfully oblivious to the implications of the maid wandering around the house in nothing but her underwear - though this may be because Daniel is more interested in smacking Dustin Broke around than in getting romantic.

So that's a third Sim headed for prison. What is wrong with them all?!

It's that time again to set up my self Sim's home for Christmas. I changed the season to winter the other day even if the winter solstice hasn't rolled yet. I won't let snow fall constantly every day until spring like I did last year, but I will keep the opportunity window open by turning off clear sky. Interesting how Sims are more eager to have a snowball fight over a water balloon fight (at least in my experience).

I finally have RetroPleasantspot (Pleasantview/Widespot in a mysterious hodgepodge of styles and technologies from the first half of the 20th century) ready to play, so I played it.

First, Don Lothario put off hiring a maid and invited Nina over. He couldn't get into a hot tub with her as advised, because hot tubs aren't appropriate to the milieu, but they found the bed did nicely.

Second, Dina took Mortimer on a date and got pregnant. He was still there (in his drawers and garters, playing mah jong) when the burglar arrived. Nina had already gone to bed, so in between bouts of vomiting Dina attacked the burglar - and won. Try to steal her state-of-the-art hi-fi, will he?!

Third, Cassandra threw her wedding party. Daniel, Mary Sue, Darren, Nina, and Dina were in attendance. Here's where a monkey wrench got thrown into my expectations - Don did not leave her at the altar, but went through with it. Then Mortimer proposed to Dina and they got married on the spot. Don and Cassie are mad at them (officially for upstaging their special day and disrespecting the memories of Bella and Uncle Michael), Darren is mad at Cassie and Don, and Nina and Dina have yet to be annoyed at anyone because they managed to be looking the other way every time Don and Cassie kissed except as part of a cut scene.

Everybody wants to go on an island honeymoon. Dina and Mortimer aren't getting one, because Dina would be throwing up constantly.Cassie and Don could have one, and it would give them time to get a new place ready since Cassie doesn't want to live with Dina taking Bella's place. But I haven't got any vacation hoods attached, am certainly not going to build a custom one right now, and am not sure Twikkii wouldn't be too much trouble to retrograde. So I'll probably just have them move out. But I had to pause and save in order to think about it, because Don and Cassie's schedules don't mesh and it doesn't make sense for such a wealthy couple to not have a honeymoon. And anyway it's getting on for dinner time.

I downloaded Emerald Heights few days ago. Went though every household, read all bios, re-rolled some lifetime wants, randomized gender preferences, gave sims who should have college education, appropriate degrees etc.

Maddy Kroud attacked Hope DeFirr while I was dealing with Claire's lifetime want. Magnolia Steele and Precious Stone have mutual wants to be friends. And Ash Wood is gay, it turns out (oh, this is going to be fun).

I had a strange predicament with one of my college Sims, which fortunately fixed itself when he graduated.

While he and his best friend were trudging through the semesters, I noticed the skin he was born with wasn't his mom's light CC skin at all; instead it was Maxis' second lightest skin. I discovered this when he was taking a shower after becoming fit from exercising, and his abs were a tad more difficult to see than the CC skins I've adapted to, which really make certain body features pop out. I changed his skin in SimPE by copying the code of the skin tone his best friend has and pasting it in the two relevant places: Age Data and Sim Description. After going through the mirror process his skin did update...but only on the head. The remainder of his person still retained the old skin. Having tried other steps necessary to fix the problem to no avail (like clearing cache), my last hope was to wait for him to grow into an adult to see if the skin will update all around. Thank goodness it did.

This was a rather droll experience, as I haven't had similar conflicts when changing the Sims' skins to the only CC skin set I have; even with the elderly it wasn't an issue. My only assumption was this Sim was born with the Maxis skin to begin with, and again, not his mom's light CC skin or even his dad's slightly darker CC skin. Took me until his young adult life to finally compare the difference.

I've started making over Takemizu Village and pinpointed why it's my least favorite of the vacation hoods: it's set up as a tiny, pastoral, Asian village...so for me to add like a karaoke bar or an internet cafe would be totally incongruous to my mind. It's certainly challenging!

Someone in the Story Dilemma Thread asked how many bolts Frida had with Caelum, and I planned to have them go on a date to see what chemistry they had. I ran into issues trying to get Frida to ask Caelum on a date.

Victor had completely restored the restorable car and it was sitting on a partial driveway, and they also had a buy able car sitting in a "normal" driveway. When I had Frida call Caelum and ask him to go on a date, she didn't leave after making the call and I had no idea why. I got a little concerned that he would think that she stood him up. I exited the game without saving and then reloaded the game. Out of curiosity I deleted the restored car, and then had Frida try to call Caelum for a date again. This time she did leave after making the call.

They had a dream date, had their first kiss, and it turns out they have two bolts. I hate three bolt Sims and prefer strong two bolt couples. The plan is now to have Frida marry Caelum. I'm also considering making a CAS Young Adult Sim and putting him into Agnes' dorm when she goes to college.

The last play through I had forgotten to mention that Victor reached his LTW of being Hand of Poseidon. Gretle's LTW was originally to Marry Off 6 Children, but I said no way to that. I re-rolled her LTW and she rolled the want to get to the top of the Education career. Her promotions stalled out at level 4 because of lack of cleaning skill. I had her study cleaning this playthrough to try to advance in her job. They both are big on getting badges. First was the Flower arranging, then pottery, then toy making. They both have a gold Flower Arranging badge, Gold Pottery badges, and Victor has a gold Toy Making Badge.

Frida got to the top of the Teen music career and got the Overachiever scholarship, logic scholarship and creativity scholarship. She's now 11 days to adult, and now is when I start to consider when to send them to college. Gunther became a teen. I'm planning to have him go on a date with Cornelia the next playthough. Victor is rolling scholarship wants for both of them.

Simon and Prudence Crumplebottom both wanted to plant a garden, so I created a medium size garden plot for them. They have tomatoes, strawberries, and a cucumber. The apple tree is driving me crazy because no matter what I have Simon do, it always says sickly. Prudence did get to the top of the Education career. Simon's days off have prevented him from getting to the top of the Science career, but I think that will happen the next play through. I had a "Oh Crap" moment when Simon was spraying the garden in the rain when lightning set the telescope on fire. The telescope is fairly close to the garden, and I was scared that the fire would spread and possibly set Simon on fire. The rain put the fire out a little later, and Simon was thankfully fine. I really didn't want him to die. He has a Silver Gardening badge now.

Agnes got to the top of the teen music career. She got the Overachiever scholarship, and creativity scholarship. She is 11 days to adult, and as I said before, this is when I start considering when to send them to college. Caelum is 12 days from adult. He doesn't have any kind of job, he just has the A+ scholarship. Cornelia became a teen. Simon is rolling scholarship wants for all three, and Prudence is rolling scholarship wants for Agnes and Cornelia.
