I'm spending too much time in this thread as I tend to do when I'm in the mood to play.  I also spent over a hour yesterday making sure all lots sans rabbitholes ( there is no way to add lights that I'm aware of. If there is a way, I'd do it...) had Christmas lights.  I'm not proud, but it was worth it.

Like I mentioned in my previous post, my little 40th generation wild child Freya...

...finally grew up. As a toddler she had her parents completely wrapped around her little finger and they couldn't say no to that sweet face.

I'm making a community garden for my longest lasting family, I'm up to generation 8, with the youngest being triplets, 2 girls 1 boy. Surprisingly one member of generation 2 is still alive, though she's getting close to being an elder. My generation 7 heiress's husband was killed and she's not taking it well, she wants to remarry but I don't know if she's emotionally ready to move on from him, since she just had his babies. She also recently found out her husband has twin girls from another lover, so that might play into why she wants to remarry so fast. She and her great-great-great grandmother are raising her niece, her step-daughters and her triplets...

this is a mess, I hope y'all get what I'm trying to explain...

Nothing exciting going on; the usual shenanigans.  I'm missing the sims from Grey Meadow (even Jonah...wut? Who am I?) so I will be moving some ( read: many) of those sims to Mayfield.



Sunday afternoon, nothing better to do other than hang around the grocery store.  The luxury of not having to live with COVID....





Duke and his wife, Tara. These two love to gossip, about everybody.

Following his punk counterpart Piers, Guzma also got himself abducted and impregnated by aliens. But he knows he would be a terrible father so he's going to give the kid back to the aliens.

Meanwhile everyone wonders why Cyrus, who acts like a spaceman already, hasn't been taken yet.

Everyone who works in business, their job performances are plummeting for apparently no reason so I'm trying to figure that out and why they get reset to having horrible performance every day.

Jocasta freaked out over a ghost, and my female sim watched the entire thing happen. I bet my female sim is thinking - "She gets scared too easily."

I wish I could go back to a time when I could smile and it didn't take everything in me to do it.

After around a year of nothing and trying to have at least some fun with The Sims 4, I've decided that I'm returning to The Sims 3 and my witcherbois... And currently I'm giving them an overhaul, we'll see if my sim-making skills are as sharp as they were

I actually decided to try Sims 4 again for the second time but it was a total disaster, again. The final straw to my boredom was when - after using a whole evening creating an industrial style loft for my simmies - right after moving in they promptly let me know how bad job I had done and how bad they felt because of it. So, after a moment of this... ...and then doing this to the said simmies... ... I went straight back to my Sims 3 family, especially since Freya's birthday was just around the corner. She even had a lovely peanut butter cake.

Not playing until I figure out the laundry problem I mentioned in the stupid question thread.  In the meantime, Photoshop has a new thing where a person can change the sky which used to be a royal pain in the butt to do.   I thought I'd give it a whirl...



Ho-hum. A boring, flat pic of a lighthouse.



Maybe a little less boring?

There is no rhyme or reason to these.  I was doing things while my sims where busy with other things.  Taking candid pics of sims around the hood is my favorite thing to do with this game.








Where are your clothes, child?  I know you have a winter outfit, I checked.

From the log of Terue Teleka, head scientist of Cronor: "This is Terue Teleka speaking. Hour 5 July 14th, 2525. I have stumbled upon what seems to be a new breakthrough in Plumbot programming. As you know from my previous logs, Plumbots are mechanical Sims that are designed to be obedient to their masters. However, such is not the case anymore. I have discovered a back door route into their programming that allows for free will. Yes, sentient Plumbots. I have copied the code for sentience onto a prototype chip. I am keeping the chip secure in a cache hidden in Cronor. I cannot let word get out that Plumbots can have free will or I risk serious complications with both public and private sectors. For now, to keep my sanity, I have my sister check the cache once a day while I am stuck here in this dark laboratory."

I finally have a really working Sims 3 game again and I'm busily remaking Lucky Palms according to my utopian vision. I blew up any residential lot over 40X40 and moved the spoiled sims to more modest homes, got rid of the military base, the police station, and the ugly business rabbithole, and I'm replacing all the parking lots in town with more amenities. This is going to be a bicycles-and-taxis town, yes it is. I'll deal with the sims themselves after I have had sufficient fun with the town planning. Soon I will nudge myself to take pictures of some of my improvements (the school, for example, had its parking lot replaced with a generous playground and a small food garden: I blew up the water-wasting and silly moat lot the spa was on and carted the building over to replace the parking lot of the gym, which for some reason had no ladders or diving boards in the pool? It'll be getting a massage table, rock climbing wall, and couple-few yoga mats as well. And it got a little coffee court between the gym door and the spa! I don't think I've ever had more fun playing sims than I'm having right now.

I got pissed off at my SimBot constantly watching TV so I "donated" it. Wish I could do the same to the simbot itself. Getting tired of this hunk of garbage.

It wasn't long after this pic was taken that I decided to take the plunge and annihilate all the sims in my hood so I could start fresh with my own sims, ect...



Last night, this is what my newly created sims walked into.  After seeing this, I promptly saved, shut down my game and went to bed. I have a new rule for my game now.  Unless there is a neat sim in the household and or households can afford a maid,  nobody is allowed to have a washing machine.

Today I learned that the Sims Store takes up a humongous amount of my computer's disk & memory: much much more than simply playing the games. And I think it's why I have downloaded the Canning Station more than fifteen times the last week and not have it installed properly once (sometimes it shows in the folder, other times it doesn't, but it's never present in game). Also the cow pen and the roller coaster keep not installing. But I got some others that were giving me trouble to finally show up, so on I go, deleting & re-installing.

Last night the lack of the canning station was the only thing that prevented me from finishing the Palm Grove Ranch, featuring the deco date palms from Al-Simhara, the harvestable coconut palms from Douglas Veiga, and Grandpa's tractor. And that and the lack of the cow pen prevented me from finishing the Butter and Egg Ranch. Yes, I'm largely turning Lucky Palms into a depressed little Mojave Desert Ag town with a little tourism (including a planned base camp in the abandoned motel at Lost Lake). Jury's out on a horse ranch, though. Anybody have advice on that? I might be doing some light rotational play, but the horse ranch would be nonplayed most of the time. Would it chug along on its own or not?

Magda has been the stylist of Oasis Landing for almost 40 years. The beginnings were tough but hard work and determination brought her to level 7 so far. She's probably going to retire as soon as she reaches level 8. She's 63 now and has 2 more years (days) to promote.

Just got everything downloaded and set up to my liking. I've created Nina and Dina Caliente to go disrupt Sunset Valley. I've never actually played out the Heartbreaker or Gold Digger LTWs so this should be fun. So far, Dina wonders if every man she meets is rich, but has yet to find out. I think I'm going to have her break up Thornton and Morgan Wolff and take him for herself. Then she'll have an "oops" baby and off him. Nina's first victim is Xander Clavell, and we'll see where she goes next. I've got all woohoo risky turned on so this should be fun.

I've set up almost all of the lots in Lucky Palms the way I want them, evicted all the sims from the fancypants houses with pools and crap and moved them into modest housing, and now I'm in sim makeover stage. This is a very large world but it has only 43 housed playables (but three of them are pregnant), so this step is not as onerous as it might be in a more crowded world, or if I had let the place populate before starting. I'm adjusting skin color, names, careers, traits, LTWs, and skills, for now, and I made one YA daughter into a teen because I felt I'd rather start there. After I get everybody where I want them, I'll look at relationships-I'm leaving them as is until I've looked at everybody.

I'll be doing a second wave of moving after I get everybody set with their characteristics: the modest housing is generic for now, and it will be more specific later. Also I need to move families into the agricultural home businesses (so far, a nectary, a palm grove with Douglas Veiga's coconut palm because nobody's made a harvestable date palm hint hint, a butter and egg ranch, a ticketed fishing spot (zoned residential but I'll figure out how to get people to come when I'm playing the household there) and I'm going to make an apiary for honey and wax but I just thought of it so I haven't yet, and probably I'll make another orchard of some kind and also a truck farm for vegies. Anyway.

The sims come with some drama, so we'll see how that plays out. I think I'll put the Tanner family in charge of the nectary and use Douglas Veiga's various services so that they can also have their culinary careers so the Tanner-Sosa feud can still happen. Though I don't understand how that's supposed to play out.

Also, I was very disappointed to discover that the "favorite foods" designation in CAS includes not one single item of Mexican food. No taco, no enchilada, nothing. I thought I remembered those in base game? I don't even know if I have them as custom foods (scurries off to check).

With Supernatural, the ghost chili plant was added. That gives the option for chili con carne, vegetarian chili, and cerviche (though that's more Peru than Mexico). Tacos and burritos are in the Late Night food truck .

I wonder if there's a mod that adds more foods to the favorites list the way that the music was continually updated.

Ive been editing a lot of worlds lately and jigsaw-ing rabbit holes to fit on a single lot. Don't know why I've never tried it on my favorite tiny island.
Anyway here's Sunview. It's base game but there's a lot of tiny possibilities I've left open for additional EPs & SPs.

It's slightly Japanese inspired (I was watching a 'slice of life' anime)
features my favorite rabbithole variation: LUCKY PALMS
and lighting: MONTE VISTA

so far its playable and I'll probably play it for 10 mins - 1 hour ; v ;
