I know there must be more Sims 2 players! It's my favorite in the series and one I still regularly play. I used to spend hours of my youth using the in-game story album typing out mini-novels for so many families. Please share some stories and photos from your game.

I have quite a few to share so I'll try to keep it short. The first two are the stories I have the most enjoyment playing.

This was the first couple I made when I bought Sims 2 again. The husband is a famous doctor and the wife a renowned businesswoman. They were always deeply in love. As they aged, the husband started experimenting with concoctions to lengthen their lives and spend more time together.

However, despite his best efforts, his dear wife still passed away from natural causes. It drove the husband insane, and he became a bit of a mad scientist, even contemplating even more questionable ways of bringing back to life his true love.

The horrifying results broke him. His wife only returned a shallow shell of her once beautiful self. Terrified of his own creation, he had her locked in his lower basement, trying to make sense of what was once his wife. Engaging with her haunted his dreams, though it was in some ways it was her, she was irreversibly changed forever. He tried his best to keep this secret hidden from this friends, children, and the community, yet it weighed heavily on his conscience. After some time, he died himself, but his "wife" remained in the basement. Even this became too disturbing to me, and I soon used cheats to delete the wife soon after and she was wiped from memory.

    Delka has always had a knack for espionage. She is in the intelligence career, and uses various means of snooping to find out things people want to keep hidden. She has 2 german huskies that are at the top of their level in the Security career, and they scare off any angry simmers who may want her hurt. She also has a deep love for the stars above. She spends countless hours researching aliens and their powers. She'd love to one day harness it for herself. She'd do anything to get closer to aliens.

    snapshot-cbcaf890-2bcafdc1.jpg

    One night she got was she was asking for. She was whisked away in the stars by aliens. The probed and poked her. She was horrified, yet intrigued. And on board of a UFO, she learned something quite interesting. Male humans could host an alien lifeform inside.

    snapshot-cbcaf890-2c0d2f55.jpg

    Yet she was female. She needed someone.

    Her best friend is in love with her, something she knows too. Yet she doesn't feel the same way. Pierre is a successful entrepuner, boasting a 3 million Simoleans mansion and owns multiple businesses around the neighborhood. He wouldn't be able to hold the responsibility she needed him too. He wouldn't take up the ultimate sacrifice.
    snapshot-cbcaf890-ac0d39b1.jpg

    So she seduced another friend in her circles, and they promptly fell in love (moreso he than her) and married, much to her best friend's chagrin, who ceased contact with her. After spending so much time with these Alien lifeforms, she could even summon a ship herself. She arranged a night were they would abduct him, and they followed through.

    snapshot-cbcaf890-6c0d3ade.jpg

    Although he was terrified, he was deeply in love with her, and unknown of the results, soon a bump formed in his belly. They soon had a child, who he adored, but no one could love her more than Belka. Because of the successful impregnation, the Aliens and Belka have a strong repertoire, building relations between Alien and simkind, and awarded her with an alien formula that could extend her life.

    This is one of the bakeries in my game and where everyone buys their treats. Quite proud of this lot because I'm terrible at building! I used some mods to get more cakes and breads to sell.

    This is an angry ninja who is crazy, money-obbsesed, angry, loves metal music, but sells children's toys. The malfunctioning ones are his favorite creations. >:)

    I bought Seasons recently and I love it! Here is one family with the daughter outside playing with her friend on a summer day, after selling lemonade to the neighbors. The garden is in the background and the father recently harvested the fruits for the juice maker.

    Great pic and stories. Thank you. That's one of my favorite parts about TS2, and miss the most in 4. I find that being able to make photo stories really increases enjoyment of the game and heightens creativity.

    So I started playing the sims 2 with this family. The father is an aeronautical engineer, he is german and he's married to an ex- legal secretary. The mom has the family aspiration, loves to play piano and loves sewing. They live in desiderata Valley, (I gave it a rural makeover - vibe) and they have two children, Margo (now a teenager, loves planes like her father) and Arnie (Arnold) who's now a kid, he's hyperactive, and loves playing soccer. Mom is currently waiting her third child, a baby girl that's gonna be called Lillian, after her grandmother. They also have a cat named Susan. 😂

    When the kids were little:

    Other stories in my game right now:

    The Roopers

    So I made a parody of Betty Cooper :D but her name is Betty Rooper. After a falling out with a certain redhead from Riverdale, she moved to Ravenwood to find a new life free from reminders of a confusing triangle. She worked hard on rebuilding cars and reached the top level of the Architect career. She met Charlie and they had two children, Ryan and Rue. Ryan loves science and wants to be a Mad Scientist. Rue has already maxed out the body skill as a teen and would like to be a dancer.

    Barrow

    This was me using a sim to try a homeless challenge I seen on modthesims. Jasmine fell on hard times in Simcity and didnt have a place to go. She stays in an abandoned car lot, and spends time busking to earn money and befrending and getting to know the neighborhood. In this challenge I started off at $100 using cheats and have to earn my way enough to buy a home. I'm not allowed a phone at home, cannot own a business, and I cannot purchase anything that isn't portable (no buying beds, toilets, etc). You have to live off of the neighborhood and cannot build a shelter lot either. I got it from here:https://modthesims.info/t/335033 but tweaked the rules for what was more fun/difficult for me. This is Jasmine around the neighboorhood:

    Passed out because the rules won't let me buy a bed XD but I do use benches at the park now (That rule was too hard!)
    snapshot-cd2aab8b-2d2ac2f2.jpg
    Sponge bathing to get that hygiene up 😤😤


    And here's another pic of my sims terrified from the fire when lightning stuck a tree at the community park:

    Oh and here's this pic. I think her and her bulldog is just too cute <3

    @StrawberryYogurt

    Fab stories and pics. I have just nearly finished tweaking a world I want to start playing in and I hope my sims are as interesting as yours :)

    Am lousy with photos, but in Pleasantview I use an overall story based on Cassandra Goth's job chance card regarding finding ancient ruins. Once that kicks in the story line is that the village is built on the site of an ancient magical civilization and her entering the ruins has triggered the dormant magic into activity. The premade sims now have to deal with this new reality, which is added to by new families and sims moving in that have the qualities of that ancient people.

    I'm playing with a new family I created, they're the McConnell's, and both of the parents have the family aspiration. Soon after the third child, both, mom and dad got the "have 10 children" want. I've pinned that, and accepted the challenge! So far they have three kids, and they're expecting a new baby. Is getting hard because I'm trying to play without any money cheats, and things got tough pretty fast; mom has to stay at home often to take care of the kids and dad has a small job in the mail, so I had to send webster to work too (The doggo 😭😅😂🐶) But they're managing it. They're all happy and have lots of family fun together!
    The kids are: Rosemary (5yold), Oliver (3yold) Winifred (1yold) Mom and dad are Beatrice and Baldwin. Mom got the pregnancy notification today! <3 I'll leave some pictures of the kids playing in the garden. Mom loves gardering, and Rosemary takes after her mom her nature enthusiasm...! Loves to collect bugs, catch fireflies, water the plants, and harvest berries 🌿🐞

    So the dad has been saving to buy a toy crafting machine, and he finally, finally got one! He's been really excited about this new hobby, and the kids love it too. It's windy season, and he's working a lot to try to make a kite to fly with his kids.
    He's practicing and making all kind of toys for his family. Henry (the toddler) particually seems to love the "clown in a box" toy :D .
    I'm also updating: Now they're five siblings! Henry and Abigail are the newest little additions to the family. I just love this family. I swear they're just adorable.
