I don't mind stuff like that being townie-friendly if I can make a story or character out of it. If a townie or NPC spawns into something odd, I try to find an explanation for it in their character. What kind of person would wear this outfit and why? Other times I just leave it alone because it makes me laugh. This kid just looks so serious about it that I think I'll leave him that way. He's very devoted to The Watcher and I almost expect to him to come out from behind the till to preach at the customers.

In which Finnian takes three times as long to eat breakfast as he should because he can't stop flirting with his fiance.



Finnian got right into the love tub when he started college. Gabriel got right to studying, rolling wants to go to class, do research, and write a term paper. "Knowledge sims!" his (Popularity) older brother says, rolling his eyes and grinning. "They're so boring sometimes!"



Finnian loves his baby cousin--all the third-gen Agnarsson kids do--but he does wish Michael wouldn't call every day.



Gabriel revives the old Landgrabb House tradition of getting the entire dorm and then some involved in group research.
(I'm trying to get the ladies in the matching swimsuits together. It's difficult since they're both dormies and I don't like making them selectable for very long.)

Community lot where you can get pets, AND adopt a baby! Note: some non-human babies require a water environment, some babies are not ready for adoption.

Wow, it sure has been a while since I opened The Sims 2.

Is this family dysfunctional or what? Celeste chose to eat apart from her family in front of the computer.



Talk about dysfunctional... Sandra nobly hiked up the stairs to the communal rooftop to drop off her dirty dish there.



Gotta love that face though...



I found Justin and Evan sleeping in their parents' bed tonight. Brothers are nice when they're not hitting each other.

Cathy and Connor are very much enjoying being empty-nesters...even if it's only 'til Finnian gets back from college.



This is how Saturday at Doyle's house went. Ingrid rocks out on the guitar while her twin Julia has tons of fun on a date.



Now that it's winter, the kids have to play inside. Somehow tag in the living room was entertaining for several hours. (Side note: why do the kids never run at the same time? It hardly looks like tag in pictures if one is just standing there.)



Some of the guests during this week's Family Day made smart choices about what water activity to undertake in the middle of winter. Others...did not. Lucas, Julia, don't blame me if you two catch cold.

Multi-purpose pet store! (C'mon, that's what kids are really)

Thanks to Smorbie1 I've been trying out some of Chris Hatch's mods.

The Monty family deeply appreciates the Memorial Painting mod.




Loki Beaker used the Turn On Turn Ons mod to acquire some new ... ahem ... "interests".
Whatever will Circe think of this?




The Smiths were delighted that little Jill can now pick flowers for mommy.




... and Natasha Una had great fun literally beating the pants off of her opponents in Strip Poker!

Maxon: the solution to my posting problems was that I had to open MYP with Google (my usual Yahoo just doesn't work with it) - and it took WORK to fix THAT account!

grammapat - From Smorbie1's post with all the family-friendly Chris Hatch stuff - here's the link to control ghosts and memorial picture:

http://simfileshare.net/folder/22472/

The file at the bottom of the list is the one you want: CJH_MemorialPainting.package

EDIT: Sorry - did you mean you couldn't find the painting in the catalog? It's in Decorative > Wall Hangings and costs $720 (objects are sorted by price from cheapest to most expensive - don't know whether you knew that). It looks like a black frame with a plain blue "picture" in it - almost like a "blue screen" error on a Windows computer. Let me know if you still can't find it.

No! I picked a default for it too, and can't wait to see what it looks like

I chose the 'real' one - it's kind of nice to see it in game.

Hang the memorial paintiing next to a grave or urn like in my picture. You can place a wall section in a grave yard to hang it on if you need it outside. When you take the game off of pause, the picture will display the portrait of the nearest dead sim.

If T&A or A&N is running then if the deceased is in heaven the frame will become white, otherwise it remains black. If T&A or A&N is not running then ladies get a white frame, men get black.

It is in the Wall Hangings part of the catalogue where it will appear as a plain blue picture with black frame.

Thanks RoxEllen. I DO need this, thanks! Although the examples are adults, I assume it "paints" them as they were when they died.

Yes, the painting will show the character's appearance as they were when they died. If you make the ghost selectable, their control panel portrait is the one that will show up in the painting. If you want the dead sim to have a specific look (a funeral suit, nicer hairstyle, etc.), you can teleport the dead sim onto a playable lot and give him/her a bit of a makeover before placing the painting.

I had to delete the paintings, teleport both Olivia and Claudio onto the lot, and use the batbox to Fix > Regenerate Portraiture. The original Maxis portraits saved in their files were terribly blurry.

EDIT: It works on community lots too! I added a picture of the Tricou graves in a default Downtown.
