    So, here is the Y220 Election Special! I know it might seem a bit crowded with 38 Candidates, but graphics get easier on the eye when the Hood Contacts are all set :)

    Am I the only one running elections and having a Council in my game?

    Loved the appropriate musical accompaniment in the first video. :)

    Wish our elections were as quick! Enjoyed them and looking forward to the next news!

    This was great! I do have a question though: Will this be the same in your other series, "As Sims Go By?"

    Yes, yes - ASGB is based on real sims in my game. So the election definitely affects the next season of the series :)

    It was really exciting for me running this election, because I did not know the result until I edited the very last minute of the video. In a way it was live, even for me :)

    Don't you think Maxis didn't go far enough expanding the Political career? I'd love a Parliament and representatives and employees of some sort with an imposing building to go with it.

    Absolutely! It would make for a much bigger goal for anyone n Politics career. Not all Politicians aim for a Parliament, though, but those probably don't climb the full career ladder any way, just like for any career. I see how much more fun it is with the election and that at least some of those sims actually want to reach the Council position. Also interesting how most of them would probably have been rather shocked if they won the full race, so even with 36 candidates there should have bee minimum 2 in each hood :)

    Just letting you know that I just expanded my Sims Residents Registry with a new community section. There you'll find info on each of my Council's 5 departments, with related community rules and news. I have rules on weddings, divorces, testaments, farm rights and a lot more.

    This community section will get more info in a while. Right now I'm on vacation, but thanks to many rainy days, I found time to do the programming needed. I'll need to be on my game to add the remaining info + doing some fine tuning.

    So - in case you are a nerdy simmer like myself, check it out here :)

    There's new from my game! LOL. The first of two retirement homes just opened, and it seems like a good idea running it on a residential lot with a live-in manager who administrates it all. There are 4 units intended for elderly couples (or singles), and so far only 1 widow moved in. I think this will bring on a different family tie vibe in my game. I mean, my families might forget to visit the elders who live at home, but when old mom or dad stays in a retirement home there is a bigger chance my younger folks will at least invite the elderly sim to join them - or grandchildren might visit the retirement home. Time will tell...

    Anyway, if you want to read more about my Bon Voyage Retirement Home (love that name, btw), I just posted about it on my blog. The manager will post a total of 5 updates there, and I'm excited to find out how such a place will function.

    Yay, I'm finally done playing through Year 220 in my game! It feels like this year took forever, but I also did some building and adjustments to my online residents registry along the way.

    Anyway - I just uploaded a brand new edition of my Region 12 NEWS. These are quick and short regional news in a TV format. Max 5 minutes, and there might be some ideas for your own game. I had fun this year, now getting ready for next - Year 221 :)
