I love the idea of the "illogical penguin". I didn't even know seasons had penguins, am very jealous of simmers with seasons! (My laptop's pretty basic so I only installed uni/NL. Seasons seems like a pretty graphic-intensive one so it's probably for the best that I don't get it, but oh how lovely it looks.)

I might use the sacrificing elders thing for my Egypt subhood, if I end up doing that! I'm estimating at least 30 households by gen three, so it's looking likely.

Congrats on the recessive genes! (Apologies for posting so much, hehe, I'm just so ridiculously enthusiastic about this challenge and everyone I know in real life is sick of hearing about it! xD)

Oh don't worry we're all just as crazy about the challenge here.

Wow 30 households? Good luck managing that.

I finally got an update up Link here if anyone is interested: http://justanothertestoftime.wordpr...round-3-wynn-3/

It also helped to keep earnings from fishing down since they fed the penguin so much. In the ice age when fish stocks were low my sims instead built shrines (snowmen) for the penguin.

It's not too late. Pay attention to the strange little things your sims do, make odd occurrences part of their culture.

This is really good advice. Also! Funnily enough I never knew the penguin ate fish until for the first time ever I happened to have fish on the ground mid-selling and it waltzes along (during summer of course) to snatch it up... I was so busy staring gobsmacked it got a second fish gobbled down before I got a sim to shoo it away XD

Congratulations! Isn't it the best feeling?! It's so exciting to see long-lost genes reappear. *throws confetti*

Is all good! When I start a conversation with "my sims today..." the people in my household eyes glaze over and those just entering the room promptly turn and run - thankfully there are forums like this around!

Thankfully I've got a sister who's just as sim obsessed, so I have someone to talk to. The other sister however couldn't care about MY sims, only her own. Of course she's used to me rambling on about whatever random thing happens to be on my computer screen, so she usually tunes me out... ~VP

Gah... I just realized I lost the pictures for half of this round and so much happened too.

My family has the exact same reaction when I bring up sims as well even though they should be used to it after all these years.
