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 Eight : The Stonegate chapter

Trouble never seemed to be far from the Stonegate's front door. Food stocks ran low and hunger threatened the family. Not only the humans were having this problem though, as animals began to hunt closer to the village for the first time ever. While trying to catch some butterflies one afternoon Dawn got too close to the edge of the forest and a momma bear jumped out and grabbed her. Dad Jared ran to get his fighting stick but by the time he got back to where Dawn had been she was gone for good. Jared and April were devastated by the loss. They never thought they would be as sad as when they lost Cruz to the great fire but they were wrong.

Older brother Marcus tried to spend more time with May hoping it would ease her sorrow. Mom April on the other hand felt that stretching and moving around would be her cure. This was the first recorded case of using yoga and jogging to ease depression. Of course the jogging might have been her way to ensure she could outrun any future bear attacks !

April came across the ghost of her youngest son Cruz one night. Marcus heard her scream and thinking it might have been another bear rushed to scare it off. Unfortunately it was him that got the scare ! There in the road between the hut and the ocean stood what looked like a man but was covered in hair like an animal. While it looked dangerous it did not make any attempt to attack so Marcus watched it for awhile. The manimal was startled by the ghost of Cruz and ran off. Thus legend of Big Foot began.
Stonegate: Jared, April, Marcus and May

* I have never encountered Big Foot in my game before so this was a shock ! Have you ? What does he do? *

Hey Anna! ^__^ I've taken the day off from other things to update today so there's plenty to catch up on. Reading your posts I think to myself "ah, why didn't I keep my families smaller to start with?" ;_; is it any easier? LoL though I say that I wouldn't have them any other way by this late stage, I just can't help all the babies they're so cute! XD What I'm noticing, at long last, is the variation in the babies born - genetically speaking - they're coming up with colour combinations (hair, eyes, skin) from their grandparents now, when neither of the parents have it! It's really interesting to see. I see you're getting to the sad part though ;_; elders...reaching their final days huh *sends tissues* As for Bigfoot - that's amazing! Where did you get him from?! I've only ever seen him at a vacation destination, and he didn't do much, I only remember thinking "dang why can't my sim marry him and have bigfoot babies?" LoL. It's good to see you still going! Keep going and good luck ^__^

Taliah welcome back ! Its been so long that I was beginning to think you had given up. As you see Ive been plodding along. I will be sure to check out your updates today.

I have no idea about Big Foot. Havent taken my sims on vacation and I dont even have the vacation lots assigned to this hood if I remember correctly. I panned across the lot and bam there he was ! I wasnt sure what he does/did so I had Marcus go over and talk to him for abit lol then the ghost of Cruz scared the bejebus utta him lol and I think to get him to leave the lot I had to say goodbye even. I was hoping others could tell me more about it.
