"Who knew that Buzz would turn into the town's aggressive drunk?"
I made Xizzle and my main sim Eva and had them run a home-based saloon,it's been rather fun. Buzz keeps fighting with PT, .Olive and Lazlo every time he comes over.

The garden club members are attractive to me, because even in hoods where other NPCs are Maxis ugly, they spawn with my chosen face templates and can have townified skins and eyes as well as CC hairstyles. That shouldn't mean they're necessarily attractive to sims as well, but I have a grandmother who's slept with both male garden club sims and several residents of that hood have high chemistry with garden clubbers.

Back in the day when I started to play the sims 3 (the year was 2010) and I was trying to learn the game, whenever my sims had food leftovers and I had to choose between "clean up" and "put away", if I used the "clean up" option a pop-up appeared, saying "Don't throw away good food, there are starving children in Strangetown". The first few times that happened, I remember saying: "Cool, the game tries to create the illusion that it's not only Sunset Valley but there is a whole sim-world with more towns" and this opinion became stronger when my sims read in the newspaper that "the most visited vacation destination is Twikkii Island".
But, after I threw away good food a few more times, I remember yelling to my screen "Enough with the guilt-trip game, there is NO Strangetown or starving children"...

2014 came and I got the Ultimate Collection.
Me, seeing the main menu for the first time: "OMG, it's Strangetown"

Sometimes, two townies will sit at one table in a restaurant in my game. I usually pretend it's because they're on a date, because it makes it seem like they have lives.
Well today I found Abhijeet Depiesse (adult) sitting with Tosha Go (teen).

I found it so realistic to finally be able to play a town that in it's infancy actually looks authentic like a ghost town when my residents are visiting the community lots and there's almost nevery anybody else there in the barren homesteading township.
I always though how it used to be in my old vanilla games was so phony and fake with everything overcrowded and with too many sims showing up like it was Dowtown in New York City when it's a barren town in it's infancy.

When I was rolling for prosperity challenge only rolled one adult sim but got a whole load of elders who are going to have to raise their orphaned grandchildren.

"Well just who did you think was going to give you a tip, anyway?"

Having fled to the mountains ahead of the apocalypse, Malcolm Landgraab IV sits down at the piano in his country manor and plays for tips, then complains when he doesn't get any. He's the only Sim in the hood; no townies here and his henchmen have flown back to Bluewater to rescue his girlfriend and her cousin (Malcolm having been too interested in self-preservation to risk waiting for them!).

"Oh, go to work."
My sim, on his way out the door, had a want to buy electronic entertainment so I bought him a game console and of course he immediately rolled a want to play video games.

"Why are you observing that one?!"

As a Sim was observing whatever decorations were available at this community lot, the third item he viewed was the "Great Sky" miniature dome. It can only be seen through buy/build mode, but Sims can interact with it. Dunno why though.

"Geez, Vidcund, I love you so much!"
Vidcund is very close to elderhood, but thanks to the signalling perk he squeezed in a second alien pregnancy. Last time I played the household he'd just been returned and his wife had run out to fret about him. When I opened the game, he had a want for a baby, a want to meet aliens, a want for Loki to meet aliens, and a want to talk to his wife. So what was he on his way to do? Straight upstairs to make the bed his wife didn't stop to tidy up before rushing down to meet him coming home.

Ugly is in the heart of the beholder.

"Don't do it, Julian! Please don't do it! It would break Andrew's heart."

I was playing Jack Gill. It was Tuesday afternoon and Jack had just arrived at PaintBoyz, Veronaville's slightly sleazy club for gay teens. His live-in boyfriend Ravi had gone out to work so Jack had gone to PaintBoyz to try to pick up another boy. (This doesn't count as cheating in Jack's book -- any boy he picked up he would take home to share with Ravi!)

Anyway, amongst the gay teens there was Julian Moltke, Andrew's long term boyfriend. And Julian was in Jack's queue. I paused the game and checked, and it said "Be kissed lightly." Julian was going to kiss Jack Gill! A further check revealed that Jack and Julian had a mutual crush on each other!) I was shocked! How could this have happened? I don't have ACR, and Pescado's Romance Mod, which I do have, is supposed to increase fidelity in long-term established relationships. I would have thought that seven and a half real years going steady (longer than real people are teens for!) would be enough to count as a long-term established relationship! Anyway, what should I do?

With other Sims, I might just have let things proceed, and see how it worked. But Julian is Andrew's much-loved boyfriend, and Andrew is my special friend. He and Julian recently got engaged and a planning a church wedding. Andrew would be devastated by a break-up. I had to do something to help my friend.

Well, I cancelled the Kiss Tenderly action, and then used the Sim Manipulator to remove the Crush flags. I replaced the Kiss Tenderly action with BoilingOil's Kiss Cheek (a social action, not a romantic one). Hopefully this will return Jack and Julian to their previous state of being very good, but platonic, best friends.

How could this have happened? Despite Pescado's mod? I checked Julian's memories, and he has no memory of cheating on Andrew or having an affair. Since he and Andrew are engaged, he probably would have got such a memory if he'd gone ahead with that kiss. I have quite a lot of mods, and sometimes the combined effect of them all might be a little unpredictable.

But I prefer to look at my Sims' lives in their own terms. Jack Gill is undoubtedly a likeable and attractive boy, and both Andrew and Julian are on best friend terms with him. And in the past, even Andrew has been tempted to flirt with him. But Andrew resisted that temptation without my help. The gay culture in Veronaville is very promiscuous, especially amongst the teens, and it can't be easy easy to stick to one's own principles in such surroundings. And, to be honest, the idea of celibacy before marriage is more Andrew's thing than it is Julian's. Julian has told me that he sometimes finds Andrew a terrible tease, slow-dancing and making out with him while wearing the stripiest of undies, and sharing a bed in a similar state of undress, but refusing to ever go beyond making out. Maybe it should be no surprise if he's attracted to Jack, who certainly has no such hang-ups. Bit I'm sure Julian still really loves Andrew and wouldn't want to hurt him. Trying to kiss Jack Gill really is rather out of character. Though I have to say Julian has been acting a little oddly lately: he's noogied two boys in the last few days -- something he's never done before in all the tome I've known him. Maybe it's just a last fling of independence before he gets married. So actually I think it might be a good idea if they get married soon. Surely then Andrew won't think of any more excuses for not consummating the relationship! I'm not sure where Andrew gets his prudishness from; it's certainly not from his mum, who says she "needs" to woohoo at least once every day!

Anyway the relationship seems to be back on track. I don't think I'll tell Andrew. Nothing seems to have actually happened, so there's no point in upsetting him. If anything had happened, I'm sure Julian would have some memory of it. So it looks like Julian and Jack never got beyond the mildest of flirtation. I'll leave it up to Julian if he wants to tell Andrew.

All told it tends to strengthen my belief that Sims are far more than mindless automatons controlled by algorithms. They're real little people trying to give their best shot at this game we call "Life". And, much like ourselves, they sometimes make mistakes!

That explains it, but in my mind, Stella just doesn't know what she wants.
