Brian Robinson and An Hu. They're a couple years older than Angel but I'm glad they played with him. Hopefully they'll also talk to him in school.
Davina are still going strong.
When I rolled the ROS to lay off Sofia, I first thought I'd have her buy a salon. Then I remembered she's a fitness sim and thought I'd have her open a fitness center, just to try something different. Here's the lot I had her buy first (which, funnily enough, was a salon before I made it over).
I didn't want to put gym equipment in because I pictured her holding yoga classes (and tai chi if she ever learns it). Well, little did I know that sims don't join in when someone is doing yoga on business lot, even when you ask them to join (I'm not sure if they do on regular community lots). The customers just stood or sat around doing nothing or looking at the posters on the wall (that's her husband Carlos doing yoga with her). So it was a cool idea in theory but I couldn't execute it. So I went back to her owning a salon.
-It seems like everytime I want to sit down to play, something goes wrong, whether it is real life or my game acting weird. This time it was my game. I had some corrupt file in my downloads that would crash the game whenever I sent a sim to a community lot. But it was like the corrupt file happened overnight because just the day before the crashing, I sent Sofia to her salon with no problems. After weeding through my files for 2 days, I finally got rid of whatever it was that was messing up my game.
-Why is it that kids can play on the playground together but they don't socialize/gain relationship? I sent Angel to the park in hopes that playing on the playground would help him meet the other kids in town but nope. They played together for awhile and he still hadn't even "met" them. So I had to have him greet them and sent them to play tag. Other oversight by EA. What kids don't talk or laugh while they're playing together on the playground?
-The poor bald girl in Sofia's salon is Jessica Whitmoore, a townie girl I made but also the girl Darren Stevens tried (and failed) hitting on during the winter. I made her over to have this long pretty hair and now its gone LOL.
-Special guest appearances from Carla (Sullivan Sims) and Laura's (Lakeside Heights) sims Jaya (red dress) and Anjali (blue stripped dress) in the salon. Those are the only 2 sims from the N99 project that I've had a chance to put in the game. But they look great and can't wait to see them hanging out in Summit Heights (I made them downtownies).
-Sofia's salon is called Nu Du in case you're wondering :). I didn't build it but I did redecorate it. I think the furnishings were all white and it was just too much white for me.
