  • Devon's moved his bed into the alchemy lab, hence the slightly psychedelic lighting. I choose his teen hairstyle to more or less resemble his kid one, but now that I look at his wall-decor, I see he picked it to resemble his teenybopper boy-band ido…
  • EP 10 for Sims 3 was Island Paradise. This may be a lot designation for hidden islands, or maybe a houseboat port or somesuch. You might look at build guides for Island Paradise and see what others have done with it. I have not built for EP 10, so …

  • Looks like the above have you covered - I posted before reading the thread. Happy Simming!
  • Pan, by a nose. No, it's literally the nose. I just like it better.
  • Ean and his high school sweetie Teague are still as close as ever. Neither has so much as flirted with anyone else. Having seen two sons through childhood, they were recently surprised by a third. Thankfully, the oldest is a teen, now, and able to h…
  • Devon, now a Teen, needs some dating opportunities beyond the handful of shoebox Sims at Hidden Springs High. So I made one - Casper Vanderburgh, who the family never talks about. Will a Ghost who died of a Haunting Curse take a chance on romance wi…
  • I need to invite Grandpa Dane for a visit, and pose them all side-by-side, because especially in my eldest, his looks have predominated. but with notable differences. But yeah - they haven't produced an ugly baby yet.
  • Speaking of Teens... I had never peeked at Devon, eldest son of Ean and Teague (Ean being the eldest son of Dane and Donovan, with whom I started my genetics blending). But I aged up my 3rd Gen heir today, and finally got a look. Definit…
  • Family updates! Back with Ean and Teague at the Chi-chi Chalet in Hidden Springs. I haven't posted, because the roster really hadn't changed. Devon and Max were doing kid things, and had mastered Scouting and badged up. Teague was writing a serie…
  • A miracle of timing. Ean woke, fully rested, just as Trey was waking up, with a Bladder motive creeping toward critical. He was able to initiate potty training before it became a diaper incident, instead. I guess he still has his baby-daddy mojo!
  • And it looks like Teague has done it again. Ean doesn't look too unhappy about it, either. Good thing I saved all the baby stuff.
  • Like Red looks at a momentarily unsuspecting Wade. Someone's about to get it, and then some!
  • I seldom take Steel Bladder, Hardly Hungry or Dirt Defiant, but otherwise, yes - I load my Sims up. Fast Learner is usually the one I invest in first. Others depend on my notion of the Sim concerned, his goals, skills and priorities. They do add up,…
  • Without, unless you can asymmetrically give him just one.
  • After completing "Dangerous Minds" along the educational track in my "eternal" iteration of Kingland, I decided to (re)decorate my Town Square, not only restoring the Hamfast Memorial I had raised there in the early days, but expanding it in front t…
  • "Burned to Death Ghost Baby" is my next Sims band name.
  • Vampires are in Supernatural. I am not 100% clear on the differences between Late Night and Supernatural vampires, however, and have only played one fairly briefly. Aubrey de Montsalvat I might resurrect him, once I run out of other Supe…

  • Supernatural is the EP that sold me on TS3. I am especially fond of Witches, Werewolves and Fairies. My second choice would be a teen trying to find their way in life. Third would be a legacy.
  • Note that this feature works not through this website with our current forums, but the old TheSims3.com site. You will need to make an account there if you do not already have one. From there, you can go to "My Page", and from that menu to "My Fr…

  • Rolando the Spy Traits: Dedicated, Vain Fatal Flaw: Cruel Another of my "regulars", athough he's gone by different names at different times, and my original conception of his character has shifted over time. Initially conceived as an agent …
  • Burnt meals are unfortunate, and I rarely make my Sims eat them anyway. Generally, I have them clean up the mess, and make due with a Quick Meal from the fridge so they aren't in the red. I usually don't wait until Sims are hungry before I start co…
  • I forget the command you can enter with testing cheats on, but it's possible to expand apartments beyond the space alotted, even including a second floor. I can never keep myself to the shoebox spaces Bridgeport apartments provide.
  • I do, indeed! One of my legacy families started there, though I seem not to have documented it well, and I have a household I play there - a fairy Knight, his squire, and their (surprise!) twins, but I only play it when I have Pets loaded, as it's a…
  • Ean and Teague are still all goofy for each other. I am surprised they don't have more than two children. Eternally faithful, as well.
  • @Hejix - Well, that turned out to be a great idea! In my Sims 3 game, my werewolf dad, Teague, had already finished his Lifetime Wish to be top of the Law Enforcement career (International Super-Spy) and retired, and then rolled a wish to join the W…
  • Play, but... Understand "play" doesn't just mean letting my Sims do their thing. It means getting annoyed by a feature of my home and dropping into build mode to fix it, or seeing a place that I can adapt or improve. Or deciding to swap out furn…
  • @60smusicluvr - If I see a Sim ready to scold, I'll reset them to clear the action. If my kids DO get in trouble, they beg for forgiveness and get it. I am a softie - my parents always let them off the hook. I also use a tuning mod to disable curfew…
