Round 4 ROS

Round 4: ROS

This round's ROSs are:
  1. Party! It's time to have some fun! Have a BBQ, pool/jacuzzi, sleepover or whatever party you want.
  2. Love 'Em and Leave 'Em: Meet someone new and woohoo by the end of the week/month. Once woohoo has been achieved, never initiate contact with them again.
Not too shabby. Number 2 is going to be fun for the sim I rolled it for.

Real life has been keeping me pretty busy the past week and a half and I haven't even been able to get through 2 or 3 sim days in the current household I'm playing (I don't know why they won't let me play the Sims at work because my updates could come everyday then :-P). So I thought I'd just let everyone know instead of leaving you all hanging. I hope to have regular updates coming again in another week or so.

~Happy Simming!

Round 3: Birthdays

Since this is the start of a new round and a new play style, I've aged everyone up a year and a few sims have had birthdays!

Round 3, Year 2010 ROS

Round 3: ROS
Since I have so few households right now, I’m going to start by rolling only 2 ROS’s (Random Occurrence Scenarios) each round and then increase once I start getting more households. Hopefully I won’t have to kill too many people until then :). [Click the links to skip ahead to the ROS entries]
  1. Food Poisoning. You should have known from the green fumes that it was no good. Stay home and rest up.
  2. Laid off. There were cut backs and unfortunately, you were one of them.
Nothing too harmful, I hope. I have realistic sickness but I haven't seen it in action in my game and I don't know how it deals with food poisoning.

Daddy's Home

Angel wasn't actually a planned baby, but, of course, the Rodriguezes love him all the same. Joel is good with him, too, and is quick to entertain Angel or give him a hug whenever he needs one.

next update / Alicia's next update / last update
Ever since Darren turned 13 he’s been girl crazy. His twin sister, Dana, is more interested in playing games than boys, though she does eventually want to fall in love.

Doesn’t Mean Anything

next update / Davina's next updatelast update
Narrated by Belinda Meadows

The winter season was not good to me. I really packed on the pounds and I haven't been feeling attractive at all. I don’t know how I put on all the weight but I did.

Creating sim profiles

I am starting to post individual profile pages for each sim. Here is the link to the Index Page, which can also be accessed to the right. I'll be updating this throughout the day and pictures will be added soon too.

And just a note that their ages are set to what they'll be after this current round. I wanted to figure out what they'd be before I implemented a new way of aging. So when you see that a sim is child aged in their profile but a toddler in their update, that is why.

I Don't Know

So I wake up one morning and it seems like a regular day... wake up, shower, shovel in dad’s food since it’s always so good and get ready to clear the table. But then mom and dad start getting all lovey-dovey right in front of me and my little bro. Ugh! Photobucket

Love Squared

Narrated by Paul Reid

Well, the end of the semester had come and I haven’t done a single assignment or gone to a single class. I thought I was screwed. I hadn’t felt like going to class at all and this semester just flew by before I even had time to think about school work.

I decided to woo Lexie to try to convince her to write a paper for me.

Uni: Day 2

Narrated by Paul Reid

I hope today is as great of a day as yesterday was. But I better pay my room and board bills before I get kicked out of here.

But I am so absentminded! I was in such a rush to pay the bills that I forgot to put pants on before going outside. All of a sudden, one of my rather cute dorm-mates is whispering in my ear.

First day at Uni

Paul Reid is the first student (ever) to begin classes at the University of Crystal Creek. Thanks to his dad being the mayor and having a butt load of cash, he was able to get in even though his grades didn't meet the requirements.

He arrives looking very bored and unstylish.

Goin to the Prom

next update / last update
It's the day before the first senior prom in Crystal Creek and we join the Reids as they finish dessert. Poor Paul is just days away from his birthday and he doesn't have the grades to get into the University of Crystal Creek. Not only that, but he ate too much pie and now has a potbelly.
This is just not a good week for him.

Picture size

How is the size of the pictures shown in each post? Too big? Too small? Just right? I have a large monitor and they appear smallish to me, but I don't know what others have their monitor settings set to. It seems like if I upload them through blogger, they're kind of small, but if I do them through Photobucket, they're too big. Thanks for any input!

The Beginning

Welcome to my Sims blog! Please bare with me as I get everything set up. This is my second time doing this (the first was very short lived almost 4 years ago) and I want it to be as enjoyable for everyone (including for me).

My neighborhood, Crystal Creek, has been in the making for over 2 years. I started with the N99 hood, which was created by a group of great creators at the Neighborhood 99 forum and has been heavily tweaked by me since then. Finally, 2 years after attempting the huge task of removing all Sims and creating almost everyone (including townies) myself, I'm finally able to play!

The neighborhood is still in it's very early stages, family-wise. Even though there are 6 main families that I play, the past few months of game play has really been to establish their households, jobs, businesses and relationships, so aging has been set to off. I finally turned aging on the last 2 rounds I played so things have been progressing. And since I just recently decided to do a blog, I don't have much photographic proof of a lot of things. But don't worry... you didn't miss too much. I promise (or at least hope) that things will get much more interesting later on down the line.

And here's Crystal Creek! Click pic to enlarge.

Anyway, onto introducing the families...
