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 - Round Six: The Stonegate chapter

The redheads should be the name of this family ! Talk about a gene being dominant - Jared you are definitely the head of this clan. Summer and Liam Lindt spent some time together and as you can see there was attraction on both sides. (Go skin 1's ! ) The kids were not to be left out as Dawn aged to toddler and poor Cruz realized he was learning almost nothing at tribal lore camp. It seemed that he was different than the other boys in his group ( dun dun duuun ) The twins Marcus and Juno aged to teenhood - they are definitely not hard on the eyes. April being the breeder that she is had another baby girl named May - talk about an audience at a birth ! ( This is the first baby with Pooklet's new skins I downloaded - still not sure how it is going to work out but I'm willing to give it a go for interest sake - thanks taliahneth and Starsaphire2 for telling me about them :-D ) Summer will make a great mother. She is teaching Dawn to talk and poor May learned it is not ok to pee in the bed ! She does not rule the roost though as Juno reminded her. Playtime is fun but too much of a good thing can upset a little kids stomach. Cruz will think twice in the future about being swung around for that long ! Watch out girls that cute little animal does not want to be petted.
Stonegate: Jared, April, Summer, Marcus, Juno, Cruz, Dawn and May

Blimey, you've been busy Annabanana! Still in love with Sims 2 and still playing far more than any of the rest of us! You're making me nostalgic :o(

Lily thanks for dropping by! This challenge is definitely keeping me interested. One more house and it will be time to start pairing up the kids and moving them out to their own lots. Either I will love the newness of it or pull my hair out because its going to take that much longer to get thru a round lol Ive been watching your blog as well and have been tempted to make the switch ;-) but so far Im stronger than the dark side.

hey Anna~ taliahneth here - long time no see huh! It was so good to see the update - I love these Stonegate redheads. I was, ahem, lost to the dark side (again) for a little while there, but the other day decided to check out your blog and see what was happening and got sucked right back in! I've returned to Tempus and oh-my-goodness I forgot all the drama I left behind @__@ I am so glad I keep notes now... Anyhoo~ About that super white bub! I ended up putting in default skins from the original pooklet 9 (Skin 1, 2 & 4) tones but leaving the Skin 3 tan tone original maxis because I like the colour more than pooklet's. They've come out really well (my mailmen *cough* are kinda pale though LoL!)and some of my sims are unrecognisable! I've updated the site if you have time to take a peek~ Two more families to follow first thing tomorrow, right now I better get to bed before I fall asleep on my computer @__@ later~

*cough* taliahneth again - I forgot to mention - go Summer and Liam! What a great couple - totally made for each other woot! ^__^

Taliah ! I am so happy to see you again and hear you are back playing. You are my inspiration for this challenge so I would hate to lose you forever ;-) Notes are a must for this style of gameplay. You would never remember who was who let alone what they were up too. So do you mean you only have 3 of pooklets skins in your game? I figure I will leave them for now to see what kind of range I get and hope it doesnt get too crazy. Im off to check out your site now.

Thank you~ it's good to be back! I think it's just the type of challenge that needs a break now and then as every time I leave for a while I'm always dying to get back, and I'm too in deep now to abandon it for good. I love these little sim families. (aww). I have 9 of pooklet sims, the original "my poor lover" skins, not the "kids in technicolour" skins that are 55? But I recently put in the "my poor lover default" skins so that the maxis skins were replaced with pooklets, but I kept the Skin 3 tone maxis so it would be more obvious which sims are "skin 3" later on. ~taliah

I hear ya. I keep trying to play a bit at least every couple of days to keep them moving along. Ahh see I have the 55 I think lol Might have been a bit much to go from none to so many but hey in for a penny in for a pound !
