Nostalgic Saturday

March 11th, 2006

A little update on the progress of Worlds Apart: I finished the default skins I mentioned last time. I've also created my first outfit (and probably the last for awhile…it took me forever! I'm so glad there are many talented clothes creators out there so I don't have to do it). I made some necklaces for my Sims and recolored some hairstyles for one of my characters. So…that means I still need to create the neighborhood and finalize the characters' looks. Concerning the neighborhood: I'm going back and forth on whether I want them to live in a downtown (Nightlife) neighborhood or the regular neighborhood. Perhaps I should just design the regular neighborhood and then make a copy of it for the downtown neighborhood then I will have identical neighborhoods for what ever I need. Is that even possible? Or even needed? I've heard that the Nightlife downtown neighborhoods load slower than regular ones (as you can tell I haven't actually played the game much since I've started this project). I don't know…I'll have to do more research.

As I also mentioned last time, I found an old entry about the Hillocks that I never posted. I had started writing it a little over a year ago, but didn't finish the story. I decided to post it "as is" simply for nostalgic purposes. I considered writing out the rest of the story, but decided that it doesn't really matter as I don't have have these Sims anymore. So, enjoy this little walk down memory lane. I know I did!

Why Food Poisoning Sucks

November 11th, 2004

Just the day before, Kim had been over at her friend Beau Broke's house. His mom Brandi wasn't the best housekeeper in the world and with a new little baby demanding her attention, Brandi had even less time to devote to her household chores. While visiting, Kim got hungry and grabbed a plate of pancakes that were sitting on the counter. She took the plate over to the Broke's small dining table and sat down to eat. She took a big bite and swallowed before she realized they didn't taste quite right.


When Kim woke up this morning her stomach hurt but she wanted to go to school anyway. It was cupcake decorating day in Home Ec and she didn't want to miss it. But, although she did her homework, took her morning bath and ate breakfast, by the time the bus pulled up to the curb Kim realized she still wasn't feeling well. She didn't care about cupcakes anymore. In fact, sll she wanted to do was curl up in a ball and wait to die. Surely she'd feel better then. Just then, sweat broke out on her forehead as her stomach roiled and a wave of nausea crashed over her. Bile burned the back of her throat.

The Kelps Around Town

November 10th, 2004

Hoping to be elected to congress, Marina Kelp decided it was time to hit the campaign trail. Her campaign manager, Elle, suggested she get to know the people of Pirate's Cove better. Knowing that she wouldn't be able to meet everyone in town herself, Marina enlisted the help of Neptune, her loyal retainer/bodyguard.

Neptune visits the Pleasants.

Neptune headed out into the neighborhood after breakfast. Unfortunately, he had a hard time finding anyone at home (probably because, unlike him, they were all at work). After a long time of pounding the pavement and ringing countless doorbells, he finally came upon a family that was at home.

Kara's Sweet Sixteen

November 3rd, 2004

Andi gives Kara a birthday kiss.

It was to be her last day as a carefree child, but Kara couldn't wait until her birthday party that night after school. Andi was excited for her as well and, although she'd dearly miss her little girl, she was curious to see what kind of a young woman Kara would turn out to be.
