It also took me a while to figure out the "Groups for outings/just for fun" thing, throwing great parties and having dream dates. All those things are easy-peasy now.
He's got an unhealthy interest in PlantSimism. You've been warned.
You know you've been playing TS2 since 2004 when you know some of the townies better than some people in real life...
So my hungry sim tried to make lunch for Bella Goth when she came by to welcome her to the neighborhood...
And I hadn't found the electronics section of the catalog yet, so no phone or fire alarm.

Well, I wanted to try testingcheats one time when I had two sims I wanted to get married. I wanted to have my first wedding in-game. So, as they didn't know each other yet I used testingcheats with mailbox so that the male got to know everyone. And I mean everyone. All cats and dogs knew him also. I hadn't heard about teleporters, of course. Then, when they finally met I played with testingcheats again... This time I wanted to try to make them fall in love. And how did that work? The male got pregnant! As for my first weddings... They got married without ceremony, because that male was too big to fit into formals
I also didn't know at all what was happening, when I saw the first aspiration failure with Benjamin Long. I thought that the wife has to call someone for help when Ben started to do the chicken dance... and then I noticed, that therapist is there already but only the Ben could see him.

i made bob and vicki. I didnt realize they could start out married so they werent married
they fell in love and as soon as i felt they liked eachother enough to sleep in the same bed, i got a double bed and put it against the wall. Eventually i figured out what the preblem was and moved it. They teird for baby but i didnt know about the lullbay, so i had no idea if they were successful or not
they were, and they got engaged during her thrid trimester
i wanted to build a nursery, but the house was on a foundation. I didnt understand that. I finally figured it out, but half the foundation was that deck thing. i didnt know there was a way to delete it and replace it with regular foundation. the nursery didnt have a roof, but i didnt have saesons so that was ok
they had the kid, and it was a girl named Cam. one day i turned around and she was a toddler. Never saw it happen, she was just magically a toddler. I saw "teach to walk" i did it. That was her only toddler skill. Before she became a kid i had ebough sense to throw her a party. She grew up with short hair and a private school uniform. I didnt know how to fix that. i also thought that whatever i could find to fix that with would also let me make her face less putrid. it didnt
the parents got married in the living room. nobody watched because i didnt buy an arch. Vicki got pregnant again. Cam always came home from school with her fun in the red. Always. and energy. she NEVER did her homework, and the social worker threatened to come. one day the fridge ran out of food. The dad ordered some. it came, he paid, the mom started cooking. then she DIED. the pregnant woman was dying on the floor and her widower and child were just sobbing! i exited without saving. never played them again

No idea that she would need any skills or anything. She got so depressed all she would do is stand around and cry. So when the fatal grill accident happened she went into aspiration from depression and starved because she wouldn't eat.
Total fail all in less than a week if I remember correctly. I was much better prepared when I got TS2.

Probably the most regrettable thing was allowing my very first self sim to get engaged to that Abhijeet Deppiesse guy. What a plonker that guy is ("Plonker" is a Brit expression to describe men who don't have much going for them)
Woohooing with Joe Carr in a tiny Maxi's house that had no room for him to get in HIS side of the bed. ... that romance was doomed from the start. hehe
Managing to lose both of my first two self sims. Dunno what I did - but they just disappeared into a black hole never to be seen again. Oh well.. in retrospect they looked pretty lame. :P
No it isn't, it's British slang for the phallus.

I didn't realize that houses are a lot cheaper if you build them first, and THEN move a family in. Building a house from scratch with the family's money is....expensive.
I managed to decimate a family of eight into a family of one in the space of a couple RL hours. Admittedly, one was moved out and one was murdered using the RDC. Doesn't make it any better.
Also, sometime after getting Sims 2, my sister created a family with two parents and SIX toddlers... (She had been watching Jon and Kate Plus 8.) The nanny fainted and I think died =P I'm pretty sure she learned a valuable life lesson, there
She failed school and then the social worker took her away. D:
...then I learned about maxmotives. c:
My Sims soon died due to hunger.
By the time I got The Sims 2 for PC I was pretty much clued up about the game and how it works, so I didn't really have many "Noob Adventures".

haha, it's bad i know. another bad thing i did was accidentally let one of my pregnant sims die of hunger. i think it was my first pregnant sim, too.
i wasn't used to the sims 2 then.
In the end my sim was so fed up with the headmaster coming round and eating their food, using their hot tub etc only to end in yet ANOTHER rejection, she used "agesimscheat on" and turned him into a toddler just to get her own back.
Was quite funny at the time but the headmaster has yet to resurface in my game since this episode. I wonder why! hehe
1) I didn't know about cheats and my sims suffered of powerty
2) I ignored the bills and repoman came regularly
3) my kids didn't their homework because I never managed to see where they put that homework
4) I didn't know that you can delete sth like walls, fences, floors or stairs in the build mode, so I quit without saving or deleted the entire house just because of one wrongly built wall, lol!
5) I thought that "public woohoo" is woohooing when some other sims are watching the couple. One sim wanted a public woohoo desparately, so I invited her boyfriend and some neighbours, got the neighbours into the bedroom, where I made her and her BF busy in the bed, and wondered why she still had that wish. The neighbours reaction didn't surprise me, i expected sth. like that.
6) A VERY PERVERTED THING: I saw the same sim's want woohoo with 3 sims, and thought "How on Earth am I to make 3 sims make love simultaneously? Where is the option for this?"
7) I saw sims wants about buying stuff, and I bought it for them, but I didn't know that the points disappeared when you sell those things.
8) I thought it was good to make friends with the Social Bunny.
9) And, like many others, I built HUGE houses esp. after I discovered CC and downloaded a bunch of stuff for my game.
