View Full Version : Ever replay stories/sims you played in TS1 or TS2?
12th Jun 2012, 2:50 AM
Today I found myself thinking about the very first sim i ever made back in 2000 in TS1 base game. his name was Todd Spatula and he wore the outfit with the green pants and the black shirt with the white stripe on it. Bella Goth (among others) came over to welcome him and i made them have a romantic relationship. long story short, i never realized that bella was already married (i thought mortimer was her dad......) so if you guys remember, trying to get a sim to agree to a proposal if they didn't live in your house was near impossible, especially if they were already married... in the end he could never get her to marry him.. I kind of want to recreate Todd Spatula so he can finally marry bella.
what about you guys? have you ever thought about remaking some of your favorite sims from TS1 or TS2 and playing them again in TS3? tell your stories about them and why you liked them so much!

Madame Toukini. A crazy magic woman who wore that massive rimmed hat in black, and that dark red long dress. She had many children who spent their evenings running around the garden sitting on all the toadstool seats repeatedly, to get mushrooms for their mothers' spells :D I made her again in apartment life, until I realised that magic wasn't the same. So If the new expansion pack is supernatural stuffs then Madame Toukini will be baaaack! *cackle*

Similar to Elphiron, I have a MM family I'll be bringing back, a teen (in TS1 just really thin adult with young features) with conservative parents who never let her have any fun or have close friends. The family moves back to their ancestral house and the teen finds a secret door from her bedroom with all the magic stuff in the hidden room and a note from her great-great (etc) grandmother that instructs how to become a witch. This time around I may change it so that the dad is the clueless one, and the mom just pretends to be normal but she is really a vampire. Teen finds her secret altar in her private boudoir. Might make the poor dad catch werewolfism too. and there might be a younger sibling or an "ancient grandmother" who is really a fairy, not sure yet...

I don't bring back any families, I don't even remember most of my families from TS2 -- not even my favorite ones. I do have a lot of stories that I liked in TS2 that I tend to recycle a lot in TS3:
struggling single mom
struggling teen mom (usually played with the above, Gilmore Girls style)
hard-partying Peter Pan/party girl who sleeps with everyone in the big city and has no real trajectory in life
the bisexual tortured artist
the slutty teen who grew up in a nice home with great parents and yet still feels the need to break up marriages
and the fat, shy, awkward teen who goes to France/Egypt/China after becoming a YA for "study abroad" and transforms themselves before returning to town
I also have the struggling small business owner but EA hasn't given me the capabilities to play that out yet. *shakes fist at EA*

I recreate my characters all the time. Ash Ryusaki (the dude on my avatar) is a Sim character I have created since The Sims 1.
In The Sims he was the adoptive child of a gay couple. There's no aging in TS1 so nothing special ever happened to him.
In The Sims 2 I recreated him as a teen (since teens were new to game at the time). I only brought back one of his parents (because I was lazy in creating) and added a new younger brother (who was also a teen). He had a pretty sweet life in TS2 and eventually he earned 10,000 simoleons before he went to college because I kept playing him with aging off.
In The Sims 3 he's a single young adult living in Bridgeport, trying to make a name for himself. He just got promoted to Fashion Phenomenon (Stylist profession, level 10), has a steady boyfriend and he's considering on getting married and having kids.
If there ever is a Sims 4, I wouldn't hesitate to recreate him again. :)

My original Sims 2 game was full of carryovers from the original. My first TS2 sim, Rachel Nichols, was the daughter of a Lindsay Lohan-skinned Studio Town sim named Michelle Nichols. Her dad was one of my gangsters ("Blondie" Aprile). When I created Rachel in The Sims 2, she followed in her father's footsteps. With another family, the Angelos, I just created one of my favorite sims, Dougie Angelo. In The Sims 1, he was a perpetual bachelor and patrolman: the Sims 2 allowed him to become the grey-headed chief of police and a grandfather.
In all three games I've had a particular sim named Tobias who started off as my alter-ego, but he's his own character now. In The Sims 1, he lived with a couple of friends in a house: he worked as a zookeeper, though his heart's ambition was to be a crooner like Bing Crosby or Bobby Darin. He wore this tacky blue tuxedo. In the Sims 2, he grew a beard, started getting skinny, and wound up having a family. His friends got their own houses. Tobias tended to be a doctor, military man, or unemployed author. In Sims 3, he has a desire to reach level 5 in five careers, and so far he's been a cop and a sports athlete. I created him at first with two of his friends, but the game is different from its predecessors, so eventually I let them move out and fade away.
I became very attached to a particular family in the Sims 2, the Charvats, so much to the point that one of my Sims 3 games features one of their progeny, Julian Charvat. I don't know where in the family line he fits in, but I had fun translating the Charvat 'legacy' into Sims 3 terms. Julian is a Good sim, for instance, because the Charvats are very much into public service.
My current Sims 3 game involves another character who is a member of another family I've gotten attached to....but this family started out in SIMCITY 3000. :lol: I always liked the advisers in SimCity, so one of my Sims 2 neighborhoods featured them as Sims. For instance, Randall Shoop, the Health, Aura, and Education adviser, began life as a teacher, eventually shifted to politics, and wound up as mayor. I also created some of the petitioners. One of these SimCity 3000 sims became a favorite of mine, and...well, I wound up creating a fictional family history that unfolds through allllllll the various games I play. I don't mean Sims games, either, but games like Civilization III as well. I may be nuts. When I rediscovered The Sims 1 last week, I made a member of that family. :lol: So at one point last week, I had all three Sims games running...and each of them was centered on am member of this same family.

My custom town and the sims I play are from my TS2 hood. I rarely play anything else. I created them in Sims three using the notes I had and continued on with the story from where I left off.

I don't tend to recycle, but I have thought about it. For TS1 I didn't have too many families I'd re-create, since I tended to play more focused on creating super-cool houses and such, then. Also, there was either a house of 8 adults I'd play, (or however many possible I thought I could try to manage at once), a couple I'd play, or a single sim. Often if there WERE children I ignored them since they didn't do much (although I always made couples have them. Just because). The only one I'd say I'd re-create I can't remember the name of but I remember completely. Since there was no aging in that game I had a super fun time with, let's call her Carly, since I'd had to much CC and custom heads and skins I had finally created a sim/house I was proud of, I had superstar, a kitty, and when making magic came out and I had her explore magic town, she was on a single-minded mission to find ALL the crystals with their associated magic powers, all while hiding her magical dealings from her roommate/love interest and eventual child.
With TS2 I was more excited with all the new possibilities of things I could do I just jumped right into all that. I made a family with all the different life stages immediately, including a child who was blue. Just because I can. And because I loved my experimental family so much I had the mother, a family sim, EXTREME reproduce to see if I could get any fitting children to carry on the family (and killed them if they did not meet my expectations, 'cause what am I going to do with 15 kids anyway). I think I dicked around with the Tombstone of L and D too much with that family 'cause every time I tried to load them after a while my game crashed. =p I'd probably create them again, but there was also:
My family of 2 Romance sims (The Kline family), who were married with 2 kids (teenagers, also romance sims), who both wanted to woohoo with 20 sims. Challage: have each of them complete their goals without completely ruining the marriage and family. Surprisingly successful. Far too easy. I think the reputation system now is bugged out and obnoxious but might be fun to re-play. Except I'm not sure what lifetime wish to give them since for Heartbreaker you HAVE to break up your sims to proceed. Which kind of defeats the purpose of that challenge. I DID play as a whore though, for TS3. It was a household with her and her brother, and her brother's kid, and eventually one of her kids. Don't judge her little whoreish soul though, they were poor! =p And you could always find her all dressed up "nice," hanging around the bistro trying to pick up some clientele.
There's another trio of families I had in TS2 I would replay since I never adequately finished up their "story", but with the sims 3 I tend to play only one family at a time with the way the neighborhoods are set up now. But one of those families I NEED to get around to re-doing. They were poor cursed such as half of each of their offspring were doomed to death, propensity towards zombie-hood and overall closeness with dead things. (Also constantly in debt to one of the other trio of families there/were employed by them/like peasants to a lord). Poor souls....But if Supernatural Sims is next, I AM creating them.
Not the most exciting, I usually have a bunch of other stories I wanna play and too many new ones to go back and re-create anyway. I'm going on about creating a neighborhood of all my families now: The assasain, her daughter the ghost, her niece (the grim reaper's daughter); The musician/faerie, her son, and her romantic interest/future husband the super-scientist who wants her mysterious lack of aging power (silly sims, I gave them that!), while waiting for her current husband to die; my lost blue man with super-hero like marital arts skills and his roommate/caretaker, an evil wannabe-witch who's mooching off his money/overtrustingness to live in his sweet house; my two brother sims, one of which I'm deciding is going to be a cupid, and the other one is going to breed/create strange creatures/sims. And then I'm going to dump them all together into apocalypse neighborhood.
I think that pretty much takes care of most of the storylines I usually like to try out. =p If you can't tell, I'd be SUPER psyched for a supernatural expansion pack.

Ive thought about it. I have several sims from TS2 that I absolutely love. There was Dustin Howler and his dog Silver from Strangetown. He was a werewolf and his dog was a wolf. He lived in the woods, on a lot I built it was pretty neat. One of my all time favorite lots I built too! His neighbor was Bella Goth that I did the tomb of life and death cheat to get her there and her husband, I forget his name. One of his good friends was a girl who lived down the street named Jane Doe, that I created lol. She was a quirky Sim, kept to her self. Matter of fact, I miss that whole town! Wish they would bring it back in TS3.
I loved my Self Sim and her Self Husband too. I kept them pretty up to date with my real life. I added real life friends to the town too. I loved playing them all. I tried to do this is TS3 but I'm not that good at the create-a-sim sliders... I just cant get them to look like us, or others, very well. Something I also miss about TS2, the create-a-sim was much easier, for me, anyway,
I did end up creating my Legacy Sim in TS3, cause I missed him so much. His name is Evan Farmer from TS2. I created him on a whim and he and his family became my all time favorite to play! He ended up an old man with 6 kids and 5 grandkids, before I stopped playing. I started him in TS3, again I tried to make him look like his TS2 version but oh well. Close enough anyway. He lives in Appaloosa Plains with his dog Buster and his new wife Gracie. So we will see how his life goes. I'm not expecting it to go like it did in Sims 2 but I hope its close. :)
I dont remember the sims I had in TS1. I know I had a chick who I played around with all the Makin Magic stuff that was pretty cool. lol

I've definitely remade families from TS2, not TS1 yet.
My favorite TS1 sims were a blonde actress named Jolie that lived with her little poodle and used witchcraft to advance herself in the acting biz, and Marguerite, a witch that had long brown hair and a green dress and hat a pet cat and a pet dragon. I think they'll be coming back with Supernatural (minus the pet dragon whaaaa).
For TS2, my favorite sims were Morgana and Fernando. Morgana was an elf that grew up amongst humans and always wore her hair in a black bob to cover her pointed ears. She was in the Paranormal career. She met a human man named Fernando at college, and he eventually joined the Natural Science career. They had two daughters and at least two granddaughters. Morgana and Fernando were recreated for my Sims 3 game, but this time Morgana was a vampire. I put them in Twinbrook and had them kinda lead the same lives that they had in TS2 but I became bored, so Fernando is binned while I play Morgana as a bisexual vampire actor in Glendalough who is seeing a pretty blonde writer named Geraldine. Well, at least I was until my computer went kaplooey :( I think when I have a working computer again, and when Supernatural comes out, I'll make Geraldine a fairy and Fernando a werewolf, and Morgana is gonna have to choose between the two of them lol.
In TS2 I also had a female witch named Kalyani. She was a painter and lived in the Bohemian section of Belladonna Cove with her boyfriend.
I'm super excited about Supernatural, all of my favorite sims are gonna be able to be recreated!

actually, i didnt really find sims in sims2/1 all that interesting. i didnt really "bond" with any of them...i just had different sims to play in different scenarios. the only types of sims i enjoyed playing in 1 and 2 were witchy sims. maybe this says something about my personality, lol.
now i actually do have a few favorite sims in sims 3. maybe if theres a sims 4/5, i'll carry them over to there, but this is something of a first for me, since i didnt like any particular sims in 2 or 1 for any particular reason.
13th Jun 2012, 7:18 PM
For me. it was the Newbie family. The things I did to them :) (Especially after I figured out that I could max all the skills in the tutorial.) :cool: I think I had Bob Newbie marry every one he possibly could, move them into his house, and then I, err, killed them in as many different ways as I could, but the Swimming Pool of Death(TM) was my favorite.
13th Jun 2012, 11:19 PM
Ah yes, the pool prison game, that's an old favourite one me and my sister used to do. Build a giant pool, place three islands as far away from each other as possible, put one toilet and shower on one, a bed on the other, and kitchen stuffs on the other. Actually we used to create mazes out of fences to get to the bed so sims would invariably pass out after an hour of ambling around :D Then fill the lot with sims, last one alive wins... obviously >:) Ahh good times. :)

With Showtime I can now remake Ewe R. Astar (at least, I think that's what her last name was). Ewe was probably the sim I remember the most that I played in TS1, even though I made her when I was, like, seven when I made her. She had blonde beehive hair and one of those outfits from Superstar. I don't think my attention span lasted long enough to play her in Makin' Magic. I am reinstalling TS1 to replay her, and by the time Supernatural comes out, it will probably be fine to make her as a witch in the singer career. I'll probably change her name to something like Stella, though.

The very first Sim I ever created and played was a Sims 2 version of myself and my family. I... don't think I'll be doing that, again. xD
But in The Sims 2, I always liked to create my own version of the Landgraab family, and put my own little spin on how I think their lives would play out (and promptly forget to delete Malcolm Landgraab the 3rd in the shopping district, so Malcolm was always getting stalked by Malcolm, hurr). I remember Malcolm was pale and brunette, and his wife was tan skinned and blonde, so it was always kind of a gamble on which kid would be born with what genetics. They had six kids, and the very last two were Dudley and Mimi, Dudley being the only boy, and the ONLY one with blonde hair. Both of the kids happened born with the genetics I had planned on for them, just by chance...I always figured Mimi bleached her hair, so it didn't matter much if her hair started off brown, or whatever. But I did try to base them off of their Bustin' Out appearances. Aaaaaand then my game decided to be a great big tampon and randomly delete the town I was playing the Landgraab's in, so Dudley and Mimi never had a chance to make it past childhood. -___-
Since I rarely play Sunset Valley these days, I would probably try to make them and play them, again. I don't know why, but whenever I couldn't ever think of anyone in particular to make, they were always my go-to family to create and play. I've never cared for any premade Sims, so I never recreated any other ones, except this one. Weird how that works.
