    Sim's name: Lana Collins

    Where we can pick your Sim up: Del Sol Valley

    Any special restrictions?: None!

    Sim's bio : Lana is a creative, outgoing and bubbly girl who enjoys reading, cooking and painting. She is single at the moment and is looking for love. Lana grew up in Del Sol Valley because her mother is a director and her father is an aspiring actor. Lana dislikes everything about Del Sol Valley; she can't wait to move out of her family home and get away from the fame-obsessed lifestyle. Lana is currently studying to get into university - she wants to become a teacher someday. Lana is a major foodie and she is really keen to try lots of new foods on her trip.

    Let us know why your Sim wants to take this particular trip: Lana wants to get away from the social-climbing sims she is surrounded by in Del Sol Valley and meet new and interesting sims who she can relate to. She is also hoping that she will visit a place on this trip that she may consider moving to.

    Where your sim would like to go: Southern Elegance

    May I reserve a spot?

    Also am I allowed to submit twins? I promise i read everything, but either the ability to submit more then one person (in a household) went over my head and i didn't process it correctly or it wasn't mentioned... the first one is the more likely answer if I'm honest lol. I had the idea of making twins who wanted to change things up in their lives or something along those lines. Otherwise ill just use my selfsim most likely.

    Hi @INFINILoki, since people can bring pets on one of the trips, I'm willing to make an exception for twins. I'm a bit full on West Coast Wonders, but I still have plenty of room on Southern Elegance and about half my spots for East Coast Excursions. Thanks for your interest.

    Your Sim's name: Mira Hart

    Where we can pick your Sim up... SimCity

    Any special restrictions? Must have Coffee every morning...and sometimes in the afternoon

    Your Sim's bio : Mira's a nurse who's known for her perk, smile, and dependability. She never meets a strager.Her patients always love her, even though some would never admit it. The staff has become dependent on her surprisingly insightful perspective on things, often being the voice of the unseen issues that would otherwise be overlooked. She is often seen a happy go lucky girl who has it all figured out, but appearances aren't always true. Mira is a deep thinker and feeler. After her father's passing, Mira became the glue of the family piecing everyone else back together, absorbing their pain making sure everyone was ok. Five years later, She has finally reached a point where she's begun to crack. Taking on everyone's problems while ignoring her own has lead her to finally take on more than a hobby, but an adventure. A vacation may help her find remember who she use to be.

    Let us know why your Sim wants to take this particular trip. Mira is wanting to treat herself to a trip where she doesn't have to worry or cater to anyone. She's also hoping to just relax and have fun. Meet new people and immerse herself in a new adventure. Maybe even plant new roots.

    Where your sim would like to go
    : Southern Elegance

    Mira Hart - Aspiration: Friend of the World- Traits: Cheerful,Creative, and Genius (Bonus traits:Good Manners,Compassionate, and Responsible)

    Oh my goodness, I am so sorry. I haven't forgotten about this! my day just didn't go as planned so i didn't manage to get this done! woke up to get some water and remembered i have yet to post. So i hoped on my laptop just to let you know. I'm sorry for the inconvenience!
  • AdamsEve1231AdamsEve1231 Posts: 6,453 Member

    You've got time, @INFINILoki. No worries. The deadline to submit is a week from today on the 22nd, and technically the rule above states you have 5 days to submit a Sim once you've posted an inquiry, which would be Monday or Tuesday next week. Something like that. Nothing's hard and fast really. I just wanted to make sure people remember to submit within a reasonable timeframe. :)

    I've been holding off posting what trip I'll be taking first, and where everyone's spots are reserved, mostly because I wanted to wait until the deadline. At this point, the results have tipped very strongly in favor of one particular trip (you might be able to guess) and slots for that trip are full. However, I'd like your opinion.

    I'm happy to wait until next Friday to allow additional submissions and voting. OR I can continue to take submissions for 2 of the trips until next Friday and announce the most popular one with its reserved spots this weekend.

    Either way, if your Sim doesn't make it into round 1, you'll definitely be featured in the future and your spot is reserved regardless.

    Feel free to reply here, over on the blog, or PM me.

    Thanks!

    @everyone also, I'm thinking of bolstering East Coast Excursions by adding Wintonborough, featured in Livin' A Simmin' Life (my Simselfie's sister lives there with @MINEZ's submitted Sim, Sammy) and possibly Hollidaysburg (featured in Home for the Holidays) since both cities are on the "eastern coast" of my Sim world.
  • MINEZMINEZ Posts: 778 Member
    @AdamsEve1231 I'm good with whatever you decide. All the submissions look and sound good.

    Mira can be used however you see fit

    Your Sim's name: Abora and Arious Orialus
    Where we can pick your Sim up: Glimmerbrook
    Where your sim would like to go: Southern Elegance
    Any special restrictions?: None
    Your Sim's bio:

    A Long time ago the Orialus family were very powerful witches and wizards alike. One day a baby without the family magic was born. His name was Cornilious. He had one older brother who was the pride and joy of their parents, but he was left with a shadow and shoes of his brother he could not fill. Separating himself from his family he decided to scorn magic and its teachings, even if felt like something was missing in his life.

    He found what he was missing with music, and a woman named Anola Vanderdeen. He went on to have many children, all with little to no magic talent, or even connection with magic, he made sure to imprint upon them that magic was a fruitless endeavor and that real true magic is about the arts. All his Children took well to this teaching, also feeling bitter and scorned by a gift they couldn’t use…. that is until one day when his grandchildren were born.

    Out of all his children, Antaria Orialous was perhaps the one who was most bitter about her lack of magic, and yet she was the only one to birth a pair of twins that seemed to actually thrive with the gift.

    Little magical accidents happened all throughout their childhood. She forced them into various music lessons and skill classes, trying to stamp out their interest in learning more about the old family ways. It was nothing but nonsense to their family. To Antaria it was nothing but useless stick waving, gross herbal remedies and she was completely adamant her children would have nothing to do with.

    The twins had other ideas. They practiced in secret, and got a basic idea of what they could do. One day they found some old albums and some journals in the attic, talking about magic! They had some magical family out there possibly, or even some clues to finding someone who could teach them properly.

    They made a plan that day.

    They would use all the skills they currently had to find odd jobs, and earn money. They would save up, find a small place to return to every once in a while, and travel the world looking for answers and all the magical wonders that the world had to offer.

    They saved enough for a small place in glimmer brook and quickly looked up ways to travel somewhere new. Their adventure was just starting.


    Why your Sim wants to take this particular trip:
    To find other magicals, meet people, see the world and find magic. Though both won’t admit it even to each other, that they hope to find some love along the way.

    What a cool story! Thanks for sharing. The pictures don't show through, but I can find them on the Gallery. If you're newer to the forums, you're restricted from sharing links and pictures, I think.

    Your submissions can have skills. No worries. It makes Sims feel more realistic, imho.

    And the winner is... Well, it was actually a tie! However, because more people "signed up" for one over the other, the first trip we will be taking is...

    hayden-donnelly.png?w=775&h=275
    WEST COAST WONDERS: Experience the world of Simterra with world-renowed photojournalist, Hayden Donnelly.

    West Coast Wonders: From the capitol of Cascadia, you’ll experience everything the city of San Myshuno has to offer from its picturesque sunsets to its sweeping grand views of the Bingo Sound to the colorful festivals held year-round. We’ll take a trip inland to the spooky Hidden Hollow, home to the reclusive vampires. Don’t worry about sunscreen. It’s fairly dark and dreary there in the haunted forests. The trip concludes in the gorgeous Granite Falls, the hidden gem of the Cascadian Mountains, with fishing in the crystal clear river, hikes through the national forest, and classic camping under the stars. You won’t want to miss this adventure!

    The trip will be a total of 14 days:
    1 day for arrival and check-in, 5 full days in San Myshuno (1 for each district), 3 days in Hidden Hollow, 3 days in Granite Falls, and 1 free day either in Granite Falls or San Myshuno, and 1 day to travel back and check out (itinerary to come)

    @MadameLee Amelia Harris from Brindleton Bay
    @VanPelt81 Tyson Michaels from Willow Creek

    I'm working on the hotel right now in San Myshuno. While in Hidden Hollow, you'll be staying at the Hollow Point Inn, a renovated b&b (the original was featured in Livin' A Simmin' Life, Part 2). While in Granite Falls, you'll spend 1 night at a lodge and 2 nights glamping in the forest or 1 night glamping and 2 nights at the lodge, dependent on your preferences. You'll have an opportunity to vote in the future and decide what you'd like to do with your free day!

    For those of you who were selected, can you answer some questions? I've got a few mods in my game that allow for a little more randomness and some more personality.
    1. Star sign (If you don't want the game to randomly assign your Sim something, let me know your preference.)
    2. Career and/or university degree your Sim is pursuing (could be both / also unemployed at any income level is fine too and this will be the default unless you specify)
    3. What are 1-3 interests/hobbies your Sim has?
    4. What is one thing your Sim is doing to prepare for the trip? What is your Sim most looking forward to on Day 1? (read the post on the blog, if you haven't already, to help you answer this question)

    @AdamsEve1231 Here's my answers to your questions! :)

    1. Star sign: Virgo
    2. Career and/or university degree your Sim is pursuing: Tech Guru
    3. What are 1-3 interests/hobbies your Sim has? Video games, playing with his dog and writing stories based on the games he plays (he wants to be a video game designer one day and write the plot for the game as well).
    4. What is one thing your Sim is doing to prepare for the trip? What is your Sim most looking forward to on Day 1? He'll prepare himself mentally to be around all the other travellers - he feels a little awkward around a large group of Sims (though he knows Cathy). He's looking forward to seeing the city, trying out new dishes and hanging out at the cafe (playing games) and reading new books at the library. He's also looking forward to hanging out with his friend and old college professor, Cathy (I know you haven't written about them in H4TH yet, but you could pretend that happened a few years ago).

    PS: If you want, you can give him the Loner trait as well (and maybe Art Lover, Music Lover, Bookworm, Perfectionist and Unflirty).

    3. What are 1-3 interests/hobbies your Sim has? Birdwatching, playing piano, painting, reading, playing video games, researching on the web
    4. What is one thing your Sim is doing to prepare for the trip? What is your Sim most looking forward to on Day 1?

And meeting all the others on the trip! Then, spending lots of time alone to sort of decompress from having been around people! LOL!

    Supper sounds really cool! My Sim will love something vegan! And.... did you say Akira? I hope my Sim doesn't faint. She's a HUGE fangirl. In fact, Akira features in one of the stories she writes, Sierra and the S-Boys! Oh, boy! Get ready for heavy-duty fangirling!!!!
