The Sims Life & Times

The Sims, as anyone who plays can attest, takes on a life of its own. I created this blog so I could keep track of my sim stories and share them with others. I've always wanted to write stories but unfortunately I'm not very good at it lol I am hoping that just as my house building has improved so will my storytelling abilities.

My main family is called the Snookers. My goal was to move 1 sim into Relfamtown and see how the population would grow. I hope you will follow along with me.
If you would like to see all the stories in the Relfamtown series then click on Snooker Chronicles to the left and start at the bottom of the list.

UPDATE - Well since I had a major meltdown and lost Relfamtown, the Snookers are now in Sim Heaven and there will not be anymore updates on them :-( Out of the bad comes good though and Tesime is a new neighbourhood that I created for the Test of Time challenge. I hope you will enjoy their stories as well !

Tesime - A new challenge

While cruising around for a new challenge on the BBS I found one called a Test of Time by SwallowTail87. The objective is : To make it from the age of the Neandethals to the modern world. With a fresh print out of the long list of rules off I went to start a new neighbourhood and create 5 new families of Sims to be my founders. The Gallant's, Benet's, Stonegate's, Lindt's and Phan's will hopefully entertain me for the foreseeable future.

I spent quite a bit of time creating 5 very different style of homes ( oops they were supposed to start off homeless? ) and decorating the block they would live on. I was scouring the fansites looking for authentic Caveman items to add to the realism when I had a thought - maybe MY sims would be of the South Pacific variety and that way I could take advantage of the items EA already included for me. Grass skirts and kimonos would make great outfits for my starters and there were already lots of wallpapers that had that beachy theme thanks for the Bon Voyage EP and since it would be summer year round they wouldn't get frostbite.

Even though I might have bent the rules just a tad I will see how far we go. Please help me welcome the newest residents of Tesime into our hearts !
