As June is coming to an end, it's the perfect moment for us to look back a bit and think of the best Simming moments we had this month. Our Sims can live a million adventures in just a few weeks. :smiley: Let's use this topic to gather only THE BEST among the best:

Which are your BEST of Simming picks for June 2020?
- Your screenshot of the month
- Your Sim of the month
- Your lot of the month

The categories (best screenshot / Sim / lot) are only a suggestion, feel free to use different ones if you want to adapt them to your playing style. Once you have decided your categories, think of what happened in your game this month and select your favorite for each. (1 per category!) ;)

Share your picks below!

    Such an exciting thread!

    Screenshot of the Month

    A little bit of a spoiler for my story but also not really since there's no context.

    We-ll-Figure-This-Out.png

    Runner-up
    Happy-after-Date.jpg

    Sim of the Month
    For sims I created, I think Vasyl is the one I'm going with. Vasyl is feverishly looking for the biggest treasure known to mankind. He sails the endless ocean from place to place to look for something he knows must be out there somewhere. No matter the setback, Vasyl is positive his dream will come true. Happiness reigns in his mind which makes him oblivious to people trying to bring him down. Also, don't try to feed him fish. You'll get a lecture about the importance of fish in their natural habitat and how dare you take them away from that. No, thank you. He'll eat something else.

    For sims I haven't created and I am vicariously playing, I'm going to give Sofia (my runner-up screenshot in the category above) a shout-out. She's been battling a heavy bubble blower addiction and coming out on top.

    Simming Moment of the Month
    I don't create lots myself, so I picked a different category for this one. My favourite moment literally just happened. Two sims who don't know each other but are undeniably related showed up on Sofia's doorstep and it made for an unexpected but amazing twist in the story which I'm very excited to share soon.

    I don't have screenshots, so my favourite sim is my eco lifestyle sim, Earth Greene (lol) who lives in a micro home, off the grid shipping container, and was a freegan, but I changed my mind.
    My lot of the month is a 4 floor 64 tile tiny home modern cube home, that has one floor for a different ise, like the kitchen is floor one, the living room on floor two, etc etc. The current residents, well, now just one resident, were a lesbian couple, because pride. One of them was crushed by a murphy bed and killed.
    The Great people who helped her escape never came back from the deep and dark forest.

    Hi! My screenshot of the month is this view of Forgotten Hollow from one of my Sim's balconies.
    WAarQmT.png

    My sim of the month is Kio Nightmear. Here he is cuddling a grub.
    OwvX0gb.png?1
    I thought this image sums up his personality pretty well. Kio is a kind-hearted vampire who cares diligently for all the bizarre things growing in his garden. He is a passionate cook who loves to expand his repertoire of dishes and dreams of being a top chef. Recently I've been having fun getting him to experiment with fizzy juices (the Plasma Fruit Concoction turned out well. Trash Fruit Fizz, not so well).
    Kio moved to the human world after being banished from the Under Realm for being too nice. Life in Newcrest was a challenge. Not many people wanted to buy cupcakes from a vampire and everyone kept mispronouncing his surname as 'Nightmare,' which didn't help his popularity. He met his first girlfriend in Strangerville but that ended awkwardly when she cheated on him. Then there was the incident with the alien plant spore that made him infect half the neighbourhood.
    When that was all cleared up, Kio then made friends with a runaway spellcaster named Samphy. After helping her out of her troubles, the two of them relocated to an abandoned lighthouse on the island of Mua Pel'am, where they could study their crafts in peace.
    Having lived a very sheltered life in the Under Realm, Kio is still getting to grips at times with human customs but is enjoying his current life.

    My lot of the month is the Oasis Springs gym, which I recently converted into an Eco Gym.

    I like the funky décor and furniture in both Eco Lifestyle and Fitness Stuff.

    Sprinkles is territorial but goes out of her way to torment people NOT in her home.
    - Sim of the month
    nXiM5Ow.jpg
    Violet Tuttle. She is not a sim I made but a generated sim. She was doing the most with her facial expressions and my sim asked her to be their roommate. While she was there (only for a week), she ran out of the house at night to meet up with someone.
    4ov50xt.jpg
    All I can say is that the other "sim" was married to someone else before their current state. So, they met each other AFTER she became this way.
    - Lot of the month
    p6MriMb.jpg
    This was the house that my favorite sim Dezir moved into. It was a home with one room and I added to it since 2017 and this was before the console had gallery. I know it's not perfect (I am not a builder) but it's what I upgraded so I love it and can't get rid of it.

    In my Name Game save, my current heir and his wife have a nice break in their hot tub while their youngest child plays in the ball pit behind them.

    My Sim of the Month

    I just recently remade one of my favorite characters I've created, since I just recently bought Realm of Magic. His name is Theophile Babineaux.

    My Lot of the Month

    I made a house for my ISBI legacy challenge, and I liked how it came out (normally I make boxes).

    You start a conversation you can't even finish it.
    You're talkin' a lot, but you're not sayin' anything.
    When I have nothing to say, my lips are sealed.

    Not sure if some Mage's spell went wonky on the Glimmerbrook Portal or if it was a Nether Portal glitch from the Nether update in Minecraft but somehow this June the Sims 4 Eco Lifestyle Expansion Pack took wing on my computer to become my strangest if not my best ever simming moment of the month.

    Great thread! @EA_Mai, I am so impressed by the bee shot! It's perfect!

    @xamira99 I'm in love with your redheaded Sim! Is he available on the gallery?

    @WhatCobblers Kio Nightmear looks adorable grub cuddling!

    @dzidziak86 I love that lot! It looks like something I would definitely download.

    @Khrisstyne I just love it when random Sims look so interesting and have so much personality!

    Screenshot of the Month & Lot of the Month

    MmY2n4s.png

    This is a front view of Barnacle Blake's Burger Bistro built in Sulani by Jonas Blake, a Rags to Riches Sim. I love the stunningly beautiful sunset in this screenshot! It takes my breath away every time I look at it. Though I've built a half dozen houses in June, this restaurant is my favorite lot! It's only the second one I've ever built in the Sims and I think it turned out great. <3
    Sim of the Month

    Meet Britta McDonough, my Drifter from House 04 of the challenge. In this screenshot, she's celebrating her latest promotion, reaching the top of the Scientist career as an adult. I'm very proud of her. <3
    EXTRAS

    Saddest Moment of the Month

    LZkEL4C.png

    Britta's Father, Adam McDonough, my Drifter from House 03 took his last breath after an extremely long life and I'm not ashamed to say, I cried a little. I loved playing with this Sim so much! In addition to Britta, he left behind another daughter and a son - alien twin toddlers! I wish he had at least lived to see them as children. They aged up the next day... :'(
    Funniest Screenshot of the Month

    Poor Carina (Britta's daughter)! I think we can all relate... :D
    Hottie of the Month

    Some random game generated townie Carina's husband took a photo of for the House 05 Drifter Treasure Hunt photography goal. He represents a full body outfit in black. Hottest townie I've seen in my game, not just for June, but ever!

    Happy Simming Y'all! <3
