no longer growls at any and every little thing and is very affectionate with both Helen and me now.
Notes (and lots of 'em):
-Sorry for keeping everyone waiting so long for an update. I had lots of distractions this past month, along with lots of stuff going on in real life. But I hope to be able to update at least a few times within the next month lol. I’m nearing the end of the round so I’ll have a bunch of mini-updates coming.
-I think of Jeff as kind of stand-offish when it comes to anyone other than his family. Well, sometimes even with his family. So I tried to make him sound that way in this update. He and his family never had to want for anything, so I thought his comments about introducing tax and about the citizens’ reaction to it needed to sound kind of cold.
-Speaking of taxes, I wanted to hold off on it for a little while until I got used to the new gameplay. Now that I've gone through a couple of rounds with my new way of aging, I know how and when I can work taxes in.
-A long while ago I stumbled onto Laurel Crossing's tax forms and immediately grabbed them so I didn't have to do any thinking or calculating. I've changed some of the numbers around (I can't even remember what I changed, that's how long ago it was) but I'm hoping that the results will 1). not bankrupt all my sims, and 2). give the town a decent amount of money for me to start working on my massive community lot renovation project.
-It's something small but I really struggled with the clothes for these 2. I imagine them being very conservative and rarely dress down but it was hard to find the right look. Which is also why Helen switched outfits a couple of times during the update. I really hate the high collar on Jeff's shirt but I was too lazy to recolor a different outfit I found. It still bothers me but whatever.
-In case you’re not a member at N99 and didn’t see the posts about the cruise ship, it’s a Sims Connection lot and it’s available in the Booty. It was made a while ago (definitely pre-Bon Voyage) so the original is not a real beach lot nor a real hotel. But it’s a great lot once it’s updated to be a hotel and more fun stuff is added. This is the smaller ship and I have plans on putting down the bigger one soon. Can’t wait to make that one over. So many ideas!
