How%20You%20Liven%20Banner_zps1ociqfk8.jpg

After Viewing soo many Wonderful Homes and Venues, and Reading Funny, Sad, and Drama Filled Legacies and Stories, as well as Voting on Amazingly Beautiful Sims, I got inspired to start this thread.


We are All So Talented and Creative at what we do. Many of us spend most of our time uploading Sims and Lots for others to enjoy, BUT How is your Town? How is your Sim or Sim Family Living? Where do they Work and where do they Play?


Each Week I will Post a topic for you all to share a 360-degree view.
360 meaning angles from all the way around the Sim, Property, or Event.
But Be Creative! Zoom Out, Zoom In, Show off that New Hair Style, Those Fancy Shoes, Show us your Landscape, The Cool Looking MOO,
Show us your Neighbors, Show Off your Neighborhood! Show Us How Your Sim or Sim Families Are Liven!!!


This is an Open forum for all to enjoy ~ From Birth to the Young at heart and Novice to the Well Experienced.
Remember to always be respectful and follow all EA Forum Guidelines.

    Meet Oasis Springs native, Londan Knowles- Walker. The Youngest child of Beyonce Knowles and Paul Walker, Jr. Having both brains and beauty, the former child actress, model, and singer, decided she couldn't handle the pressures of trying to be more famous than her celebrity parents and left for medical school. Creating a name for herself in the medical field was easy for this young scholar. Just shy of becoming a world renown surgeon when the loss of a patient that meant more to her than anything, her own mother, changed everything. Shortly after her father passed and Londan sat at the piano and composed the most beautiful song that even the hardest of critics cried. "The Truth Behind Tears." That song stopped the whispers in the world(s) and made Londan a world-wide name, and not in a bad way. Londan hung up her stethoscope left all of her families money and moved to Newcrest, a town full of other young celebrities, so she could be the star that was just waiting to shine. Now known as just Londan - the world(s) biggest up and coming superstar!



    How Londan is Liven...
    Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous is what I would name my Newcrest. Londan lives in the red, grey, and white modern.
    I have not named this house yet, I have no reason why. LOL.

    Great idea @Nhicks :)

    This is how I'm livin' ...

    I build so much that I never really played much. But, since I started my Legacy (The Granger's) I have been playing a lot more.
    And, Here they are! Hangin' by the pool cause that's how they do! it...
    ft1.jpg
    Albus is the fourth generation and he married Grace a pre made sim I put in the game so he didn't have to marry some random townie lol they have 2 children Neville who is my 5th generation heir and their daughter Bellatrix (Yep all offspring are named after Harry Potter Characters :D Maybe My next legacy I will name all my off spring after Outland characters? lol)

    They live here in a traditional styled home with 3 bedrooms 4 bathrooms a playroom, a veggie patch and a lot more really. It will prolly change tho it has every generation so far :p
    fft2.jpg
    They live on the biggest plot of land in New Crest and while

    I don't have a lot going on in New Crest I do have a few community lot's such as The kid's park with ponds under the tree house and all kinds of fun activities for kids to get up to. Right across the street is a teen hangout I built sort of like a bowling alley but with horseshoes instead haha
    fft4.jpg

    I also have a small day spa and a cemetery too. You know so my legacy family has a place to put their dead. :o
    fft3.jpg


    I can't wait to see how everyone else's sims are livin' too! :)

    I haven't been around on the Sims forum long enough to post pictures; however, I will give you a bit of background story on my current family, The MacKeltars: Dageus (Husband), Mercedes (Wife), Arian (Eldest Son), Mariah (Eldest Daughter), Hallie (Daughter) and Christian (Son). Dageus is a part of a set of twins, his brother being Drustan. They are from a long line of Scottish druids who are sworn to carry the secrets of the Fae (Fairies) and uphold the druidic rituals to maintain the barrier that keeps the world of the Fae from being seen by the mortal world of humans. Both Dageus and Drustan have traveled through time (17th century) to be with their soulmates and continue to the MacKeltar legacy. Dageus fears that Mercedes will leave him should she find out the truth; however, he must come clean as both Arian and Christian are next in line to inherit the lifelong gift that is to be a MacKeltar.

    My storyline is based off of one of my favorite book series by Karen Marie Moning.

    This is such a cool idea! And I have just started playing a new town. I always start my game with me as a child and my family, and play them through generations! So here she is :)

    This is Jennifer-Ann, a creative laid back kid, who loves hanging out with her club, SplaTOON, most days! Here she is relaxing watching SuperKids: Cortex Catastrophe before she starts her homework for the night!

    f0qo38.png

    She lives in Willow Creek right now. And loves being in the same town with a cool kids park she can hang out in after school.

    Here is her home -

    And the rest of the town -

    This is Sandra Muffin, she had a nice life in Willow creek with her parents but when she became a young adult she moved out to make a name of her own. As a gesture, her parents gifted her a bungalow in Oasis Springs. She started out in the astronaut career but also likes comedy since she is a goofball.

    I7QWb3S.jpg

    She lives in Oasis Springs now in a small Bungalow right across the street from the Calientes :) She did try to make friends with them, but they acted too snobbishly and didn't want to bond with her. Rude. But she has already made friends with Nancy Landgraab and Don Lothario. Uh, oh, I hope she doesn't fall for his womanizer ways in the future :)

    This is Ariel, yes that Ariel. I original made her with her prince, Eric, and made them neighbors of my simself. When I decided to do the bachelor challenge she became a contestant. And even though I didn't really play with her (you aren't allowed to control you sims in the challenge) she became on of my favorites. She's pretty close to her Disney version, same color scheme, loves the water and wants true love!

    The house she and 7 other princesses lived in is in Windenburg. It was a premade already in the neighborhood that I gutted and tricked out. It's hidden right along the coast with beautiful views of the ocean with access to a private beach.

    Thanks! Ariel is my favorite too! I don't know why you would think a house full of women all going after the same guy would have drama ;) If you want to see the drama I wrote all about it in my Bachelor: Disney Princess Edition!

    Hehe thanks @Nhicks I don't think Sandra has fallen for Don but I think she likes to imagine a dream wedding although she's not the girly type. She has a child in my game but it's not really serious with the dude. I hope she finds Mr. Right one day.
