  • I created Sweetest Day, which is in the US around Fall time....go on date, romantic spirit, give flowers, etc. Winter Wellness - just a day off to chill and relax - I have a mod that adds activities....so for this holiday, it's all about yoga, rela…
  • I don't know which ones are the best. But the worst is Sharing is Caring. It's so spammed where Sims just come in and can literally swipe anything....even high value items. But your Sim can't hardly take anything. I think I'd like it more if it …
  • I usually have a rough idea of how I want my story to be told. But I don't plan too much as I like things to be game-driven. So I might create a simple backstory and then let the game lead. It honestly really depends. If I'm going for some story…
  • For me, I think TS3 served its purpose for the time it was in. When it was out, I was completely invested. Loved the open world and I really liked the supernatural pack the best & I loved the houseboats plus the horses. I tried to go back to…
  • Thanks @Luclylu!!! Yeah, Cairo & Camden are pretty cool looking. I wasn't sure how they'd turn out, as they had some awkward childhood years lol. They're getting ready to age to YA. Poet just had twins by the alien dude....which I was surprise…
  • It's been a long time since I've posted in this thread. I took a very long break from the challenge, & now I'm back in it & trying to finish the challenge (finally). Some of the rules I play by: I play with aging on, so that my matriarch …
  • I like Plopsy, though I have to admit that I was a bit disappointed that I can't sell the items from eco living like the fizzy drinks or the fabricated items. But they addressed this in the livestream so I knew going into it & it's understandab…
  • Yes, I noticed and it's really bothering me. Not that I had it memorized, but the order things were in made it easier to find what I was looking for....but now I scroll, scroll, scroll.....and the CC I use is all over the place. I'll get used to i…
  • @Meluseath Yeah, they can have a job, while you wait for the matriarch to have a job. I had this happen in my game, where my matriarch died and I kept one of the YA's in the home and they had a job as a writer. But once the matriarch is YA and rea…
  • I LOVE this thread! Trashley - such an interesting and creative name. James Turner had one of his Sims named 'Trash' in one of his Rags to Riches series which was hilarious.
  • I have both packs and only played Strangerville mystery once and probably won't do it again. But I do think Strangerville has more to offer (build/buy, CAS, the military career etc). vs. ROM if you're not interested in spellcasters or the strangerv…
  • One of my Sims in my household is usually big on handiness and upgrading objects. I tend to always have my Sims upgrade the kitchen appliances, the washer and dryer, and the sinks/toilet. I don't really focus on the electrical upgrades too much...…
  • I haven't played owning a restaurant in a long time....but the last time I recall doing so, my restaurant was very profitable, making $4K a day, with perks and fully trained staff. The musical chairs happened and profits dropped, as guests wouldn't…
  • Thanks so much @crocobaura, @Atreya33, @aveniceglass & @lisamwitt!!! I've been playing this game for years & totally forgot about the wishing well and the ponds. Really appreciate the feedback. So it just turned winter in my game & my …
  • Thanks for the insight everyone. I had my Sim start recycling the furniture she fabricates and that seems to be giving more bits. My Sim has over 13,000 pieces....and not a lot of bits....so it's all just very strange to have two numbers and not k…
  • Thanks for the insight @lisamwitt. I had my Sim gather water. Laundry came out normal....which is better than filthy. So maybe my Sim just needs to gather more water? There isn't anything to measure how much water the household needs.....as my Si…
  • Thanks everyone! I may see if the washer and dryer works off the grid, with having excess energy stored. My sink works and it's not off the grid. I'm loving playing the off the grid, but these dirty clothes is just so annoying haha.
  • @ricola8321 Thank you for creating this thread. The upgrades is definitely not common sense. My Sim is level 10 in handiness and has that perk where she can instantly upgrade, which performs any and all upgrades for an item. But since it's mixed …
  • Yeah, this decay is happening in my game too. I'm playing Rags to Riches off the grid style and wanted my Sim to create a green environment. After I first bought the game, I didn't notice the decay. In my game, the decay seemed to happen after th…
  • Yes, I have bugs in my game. The new garden planters and the vertical ones are driving me crazy. Moving them or harvesting generates a last exception and makes the plant go from full grown down to a dirt mount. The spamming on the NAPS is driving…
  • I'm playing off the grid and my Sims just got to the point where they're able to use computers, watch TV, and play radio. I just made sure I had enough power stored up to do so. & I just upgraded my Sim's laptop with the eco upgrade parts to a…
  • @Simmerville - my Sim can't afford a recycling machine either. But there's one on the Community Space lots. There's even a dumpster there that has other options besides diving, diving for meals, etc. I'm kind of learning as I go....definitely lik…
  • I was confused on what to do too @Simmerville. But if you keep recycling you'll finally get enough bits or whatever they're called to make a candle.
  • @illustratedhappiness - Thanks so much! Cool, I'd love to see screenshots if your Sims propose at the lighthouse. I'll also be utilizing a lot of your ideas for more realistic gameplay into my Simming. Thanks for creating this thread - such amazin…
  • When you try to get your lazy Sim to sleep in the bed and he goes against your wishes & keeps waking up .....only to decide later to fall asleep at a restaurant at the dinner table (1st Pic).....OR his own daughter's wedding (2nd pic).....LOL (…
  • Wow, such an AMAZING thread - & such great ideas and creativity!!! One of the things I do is have Family Reunions in my game using the club feature or one of the events. I'm also big on proposals and weddings in the game. I feel that proposal…
  • Wow that's awesome! I didn't know Sims could make that much money. When my Sims have a lot of money & the kids move out....I have them buy their kids a nice expensive house for them to live in.
  • @LehmanLegacy So cool that you're going to start playing rotational! I just started playing rotational last year and I can't believe I waited so long to try it. I don't really have any rules, like a specific time or day to play a certain family. …
  • I'm definitely a player. I do build when I have to....like if I play Rags to Riches or do a legacy challenge, but I'm just OK at building lol. I've gotten more into rotational style playing. I have this one Save file that dates back to when Vampi…
  • I haven't played a lot of TS4 recently. I go for long spans of playing and then get into what I call a 'Sims rut' and I stop playing until the mood to play strikes again. Right now Planet Zoo is consuming most of my attention when I feel like gami…
