I very much miss the memories timeline in both 2 and 3. It was such a cute part of the game! I'm not sure if it's the same thing that you're talking about... but, in 4 there is the screenshot capture manager that can make a screenshot a memory. You can also type up a blurb about the moment and also add or remove tags for sims (if it recognizes that they're there). From there, the current sim that you're playing can reminisce about the memory and gain it's moodlet. To help me remember story plots, I take an insane amount of screenshots and so, I use the manager a fair amount. It's also an easy way to get an ideal mood or requirement for jobs. Aside from that though, it's kinda meh. Unless I'm using it wrong or there's a way cooler system than I don't know of!
I've tried to have aging on for my main save (started when S4 first came out) but can't commit to it. I'm insanely attached to them. So, I play with aging off and switch to the offspring every once in a while to prevent myself from getting too bored with my pioneers. I justify their immortality in my story by saying that they're vampires...now if only we could get a supernatural pack so that it'll all come full circle!
Hi there! I'm Christina and I've been a lurker for a very long time. I've been an avid simmer since the original Sims (despite trying so hard to break away before 4 came out. No luck Oh well). My current household is one that I've played for over 800 hours. The family is crazy but I love them so much. I'm excited for the day that I finally become a member and can post screenshots of them! Haha!
