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 !

Bloopers : FIRE !

Here is a tip I have learned the hard way - several times now lol Dont place trees on the very edge of your lots.  They seem to catch fire and never go out. I've actually had one tree that I had to delete because it just stayed on fire for days.  The poor Stonegate's were minding their own business when this happened. Everytime I would queue them to do something else they would run back to the tree fire.  This fire raged for so long that it had burnt down to the embers you see here.  You can see the school bus in the background. Did the kids go? Nope they stayed running around like chickens with their heads cut off. At the end Summer ran off to move Cruz to a safer location.  Jared of course was the first one to mention his need for a long shower lol  It was pretty funny once I realized it was over.

Sorry for the quality. I never take vids ( unless I hit the wrong keys ) so I didn't realize it was set to a lower level.

LoL! Sims are so amusing. The funniest thing about that is how the bus left JUST as the fire died. I sometimes have trees get stuck on fire too that have to be deleted, was this one of those? Coz mine don't usually burn down to embers, they just burn and burn and burn and I can't do anything except delete.

This is the first time I have seen a tree burn to the ground ! There was nothing I could do since the buy/build buttons were grayed out. I was sitting here trying to remember how long it had been since I last saved as one by one they all came running. Then 3 of them tried to sweep up the mess lol
