Well, here it is. My new neighbourhood, which is still a work in progress. I actually love this map (Middleground), its not too large and not too small.
So far I am happy with the layout. The lot with the plumbbob is where my money orientated legacy family dwell (The Petersons), and in the foreground, that is where my second legacy family will reside. They will be my 'money isn't everything' family. Still yet to create this family. There is a library/cafe/recreation centre, the 'Bare Essentials' shopping store, a family park, cemetery, and a fishing hole (located behind the library). I'm contemplating on creating a story, but first,perhaps I should see how my two families will get on with each other, then take it from there. Still undecided.

So cute!

Good idea to have a combined library/cafe/recreation centre- that sounds like fun! :lovestruc

Thank you for the lovely comments. :lovestruc As I'm more of a reader than a writer, I will be sharing pics of whats going on with my sims, and any additions to the neighbourhood. I'm trying to get some decent shots of my lots before uploading them here. Thanks everyone once again, it encourages one to share more. :up:

Well things are progressing nicely in New Bay. I have finally completed my cemetery and thought I would share the final outcome. Any critique is welcome.

Also the home where my 'fortune-ate' family will reside...

And the home for my 'money isn't everything' family...

http://www.modyourpanties.com/hosting/75792_170420034751snapshot_00000007_2603e221.jpg

It takes me quite sometime to finish something to my liking. :rolleyes: So apologies for taking my sweet ole' time.. :D Hopefully I should have more to share soon.

I think you have a lovely little chapel on your cemetery lot. Maybe do some more landscape on the fortunate house like flowerbeds or hedges, maybe small manicured trees.

LilKiwi

:faceslap: Thank you Charmful for pointing that out to me. I went back into my NH and did a bit of sprucing up, keeping it within a price that my family can afford. I might add, this is a shell. The interior has not been decorated, nor does it have plumbing, but it does have doors :D . Here is a before and after comparison.

Hello, and apologies for my absence. I would like to introduce two of my family's.

http://www.modyourpanties.com/hosting/76350_170512185938snapshot_46093fcf_e6093fd0.jpg

Background: Eliza, with her son Henry returned home after going through a messy divorce. Of course she had to listen to the 'I warned you' lecture from her mother Maggie, and all the 'I will not put up with...' rules. Eliza got nothing out of the divorce, not one simolean. Does Eliza have an ulterior motive?

http://www.modyourpanties.com/hosting/76351_170512190705snapshot_460a9b1a_060a9b1b.jpg

Background: Harvey and wife Blair finally saved enough simoleans to purchase a home out of the city, and out of the cramped apartment, to raise daughter Lilly. Hoping a rural lifestyle will bring many rewards. Have this couple made the right decision?

So basically, these are the founding family's of New Bay.

An update on the the Peterson family

http://www.modyourpanties.com/hosting/76390_170515035406snapshot_46093fcf_e60a7816.jpg
Eliza filling her mother in about the divorce and her situation.
http://www.modyourpanties.com/hosting/76391_170515035550snapshot_46093fcf_660a7894.jpg
First night together, Henry is engrossed in his book, much to his grandmothers quiet delight, and Eliza just sits and contemplates (or schemes) about her future.
http://www.modyourpanties.com/hosting/76392_170515035821snapshot_46093fcf_660a7c6d.jpg
While Henry sleeps soundly, his mother looks on. What is she thinking about? Is she thinking about leaving her son with her mother?
http://www.modyourpanties.com/hosting/76393_170515040004snapshot_46093fcf_460a8695.jpg
Henry adores his grandmother,patiently waiting for her to rise. They happen to share the same interest, nature. Guess that's the reason they get along.
http://www.modyourpanties.com/hosting/76394_170515040158snapshot_46093fcf_260a8a22.jpg
Mother isnt around to congratulate Henry, (mother is hardly ever around). But Maggie is pleased for her grandson doing well in school and getting an A+ report card.

Apologies for the bland update, but as said, Im not one for storytelling..perhaps if I kept at it, I will improve. I do have ideas in my head for how things are going to be in New Bay. Next update will be the Collins family. Thanks everyone.

And now for the Collins' first update...

http://www.modyourpanties.com/hosting/76532_170518045834snapshot_460a9b1a_e60b68e6.jpg
First breakfast in their new hometown. Lilly is excited to go to school and make friends, Harvey wolfs his brekkie down before the carpool comes, while Blair keeps her hopes up for a job.

http://www.modyourpanties.com/hosting/76533_170518050322snapshot_460a9b1a_660b65ec.jpg
Blair is welcomed to the neighborhood by Maggie Peterson.

http://www.modyourpanties.com/hosting/76534_170518050447snapshot_460a9b1a_460d155f.jpg
As she has no job, Blair decides to take a gander around the town. She visits the local library/ cafe/ rec centre, where she meets a couple of townies.

http://www.modyourpanties.com/hosting/76535_170518050722snapshot_460a9b1a_860d159d.jpg
As she drinks her coffee, she notices the job notice board. (no pic) She finds a job advertising a vacancy in the science department. Right up her alley.

http://www.modyourpanties.com/hosting/76536_170518051203snapshot_460a9b1a_260b671a.jpg
After her morning out, and wanting to cook something delicious for dinner she heads home. Mmmmm, smells deeelish, smoky...

http://www.modyourpanties.com/hosting/76540_170518051912snapshot_460a9b1a_660b6727.jpg
Okay, not delish. But at least its cooked..

http://www.modyourpanties.com/hosting/76541_170518052010snapshot_460a9b1a_260b677f.jpg
Harvey looks slightly disappointed, but won't say anything..mmm lobster thermidoom.

http://www.modyourpanties.com/hosting/76542_170518052147snapshot_460a9b1a_660d12b0.jpg
Lilly tells her parents all about school over the family meal. Its been good for this family so far.

Oh thanks for the complement LilKiwi, I have been playing my hood the way it is for a little while. In 2015-11-20 I did a complete reinstall from scratch after a major system upgrade and at this point I decided to add my two Founding Alien Families to the Polination Tech #9 Smith's set of Aliens.

I didn't know that you use the in-game camera, so you do take really good pictures then. I find it difficult to use the in-game camera. A little while ago I decided to stop using the in-game camera and instead I use the Screen Shot capability of the Mac, usually the selected region feature as that way I have less cropping to do. I do always convert from .png to .jpg and I do a little bit of cropping if needed.

Heres a little update. The Collins' are doing okay. With Blair doing well at work and Harvey selling his paintings for a nice sum, the family are raking in the simoleans. And so with the money, they are currently redecorating their home, starting with the interior. Blair and Lilly are science enthusiasts, and so when there is time, the two stargaze together, which landed Blair a membership into the secret hobby club. However, all is not complete bliss with this family. On a random visit from the Petersons, Harvey thought he'd blatantly check Eliza out. Much to the horror of Blair. Lucky the kids were outside playing, as I would hate to see little Lilly's reaction if she had witnessed her fathers shenanigans. She's very close to both her parents, and still doing well in school.

The Petersons are also going through a little drama. Eliza keeps rolling a want to find her own place, and I'm thinking why not? Harvey is still close to his grandmother Maggie and still spends more time with her than his own mother. Though Eliza does show the odd affection towards him, it still isn't enough. Gladly though, Harvey is keeping his grades up, and is gunning to be the overachiever Maggie hopes for. He has become good friends with Lilly, but hasn't brought her home from school yet. It seems Lilly is always dragging him to her home after school.

Well it's been a few days, so I think its time for a quick update. Alas no pics this time.
Maggie and Henry are on their own, with only 2 days before his birthday, when he will become a teenager. Eliza did move out, (I was getting irritated by her constant want to find her own place) back to the city where she hopes to find someone rich, as she is a fortune sim.Though her dance career is going well and she is making quite a few nice simoleans for her pocket.
And for the Collins, Harvey and Blair managed to patch things up after his tiny indiscretion, and Lilly is only a day away from becoming a teenager. Blair is doing extremely well at work, and is hoping Lilly gets into college. Where Harvey is content to stay home and sell his paintings to supplement the income Blair brings in.
I hope to be updating more sometime this afternoon, with pics of course.

Emperor Crat
28th May 2017, 1:19 AM
Awesome update! I love the concept of Liza starting out on her own to find a rich sim and then *cough*..kill him off...*cough*. Or perhaps her morality deters her from doing so, which s fine :lol:. It's great to hear about your families, and I'll be watching for your next update ;)

LilKiwi
30th May 2017, 6:46 AM
Firstly I must apologise for the long afternoon... unexpected visitors.
Anyhu, here is the update...
The Petersons
http://www.modyourpanties.com/hosting/76808_170530042119snapshot_662ac3e7_062f26ab.jpg
Henry was not at all happy about his mother wanting to move back to the city to chase her dance career. He feels her career is more important than him.
http://www.modyourpanties.com/hosting/76809_170530042307snapshot_46093fcf_e628aa60.jpg
Maggie sees her daughter off. Understandably Henry is not there to say see his mother off.
http://www.modyourpanties.com/hosting/76810_170530042431snapshot_662ac3e7_862f19db.jpg
Instead he takes his frustration and anger out on the pile of leaves his grandmother had just raked. Being in nature helps subdue his bitterness...
http://www.modyourpanties.com/hosting/76811_170530042559snapshot_662ac3e7_a62f1e1b.jpg
...and lands him a membership to Peerless Park.
http://www.modyourpanties.com/hosting/76812_170530042724snapshot_662ac3e7_462ad2b7.jpg
Henry is determined to make his grandmother happy and is still an outstanding pupil, with dreams of going to college and make Maggie proud.
And the Collins family...
Only a day from her birthday, Lilly gets to spend an afternoon with her Dad, while her mother is at work.
http://www.modyourpanties.com/hosting/76813_170530043204snapshot_460a9b1a_060d1991.jpg
Its the morning of her birthday, and Lilly is up bright and early.
http://www.modyourpanties.com/hosting/76814_170530043308snapshot_460a9b1a_06260856.jpg
Its off to the park for the afternoon with dad.

Oh deary deary me. I am not a very happy person at the moment, for I arrived home to find my laptop has been ruined, completely and utterly destroyed. A visitors child somehow got a hold of it :wtf: and dropped it off the balcony. :cry: So I have managed to buy a spanking new lappy (which will be travelling with me to work) and now proceeding to re install everything. Hoping my memory serves me well and I can recreate New Bay. This process may take two to three days, *sigh*. I'll be back.

Ooof, that must have been devastating to discover. And I thought my mom smashing my laptop against the floor was the worst thing! Not even the disk drive got saved? I'm not an expert, but someone who knows more could extract the files from there, I guess...
(Children these days... That is the main reason I don't like them :rolleyes: )

LilKiwi

My question was, what and where were it's parents? And what was that child doing in my room when I had closed the door (the kid is 4 btw), and how'd it reach the door handle??? The disk drive was shattered, duct tape couldn't save it if I tried.

Hi everyone, thank you for all your patience. I've managed to install my game, re create my two families to the closest resemblance, (I lost my cc. A copy was awaiting the move to the external drive), rebuilt New Bay and can now start playing, after much tweaking (windows 10, crappy Intel graphics, and just crappy everything), now only have a problem with everything looking rather stretched, but I can live with that I guess (for now).
I used to have a mod that allowed me to set the age of a specific sim but am having difficulty finding it. It would allow me to age the sims to an x amount of days before their birthday / death. So when I have the time I can finally play the households and throw up some pics.

I am not at all familiar with PCs, but I know that Leefish.com where I am also a regular is a good place to find information about your graphics.

For your MOD that allows setting the age of specific sim, you should try going to the WCIF sections of several sims sites, someone will likely know about it.

There are a couple of MODs that set age of a specific sim as well as a lot of other things, Sim Blender is the one I use, also there is The Sim Manipulator. Both of these are objects that among other things will set a sim to a specific age catagory and then a set number of days into that catagory.

I am quite glad that you are going to be able to post on your game again.

Lilly gets her A+ report card, and applies for college scholarships, which is successful. Lilly is off to college.
http://www.modyourpanties.com/hosting/77063_170610095129snapshot_c64176bf_46484fbb.jpg
And just when Lilly is off to college, Blair realises she's pregnant, not sick with the flu
http://www.modyourpanties.com/hosting/77064_170610095302snapshot_e6486144_c6486152.jpg
Henry is already in college and studying biology. With money from his grandmother and his scholarships, he could afford to rent his own place on campus.
http://www.modyourpanties.com/hosting/77065_170610095500snapshot_e6486144_464869ac.jpg
Having Maggie as a friend has its perks. It's been arranged for Lilly to room with Henry while at college, so of course that means a shopping spree.
http://www.modyourpanties.com/hosting/77066_170610095649snapshot_e6486144_c648703a.jpg
College roomies. Lilly hopes to excel in a mathematics degree, and having a quiet environment and a like minded person will help a lot.
http://www.modyourpanties.com/hosting/77067_170610095950snapshot_e6486144_26486a65.jpg
These two are all about studying rather than play.
http://www.modyourpanties.com/hosting/77068_170610100146snapshot_e6486144_a6486d43.jpg
Henry and Lilly are getting along splendidly. It seems their childhood friendship is growing.
http://www.modyourpanties.com/hosting/77069_170610100336snapshot_e6486144_26486d69.jpg
Ohh the things one does just to get a membership for their favourite hobby.

While Henry was away in college, Eliza returned from the big city to help her mother. Maggie was getting on in life, and Eliza was on a break from her job. Henry was not happy about that arrangement as he no longer trusted his mother, she did abandon him as a child, and had high suspicions about Eliza's motives. He didn't think for one moment his mother was sincerely concerned about Maggie. He would call his grandmother everyday to check on her and see how everything was. Meanwhile the Collins household were absolutely happy about the baby to be. Of course Harvey hopes for a son, while Blair is just happy to have another little one in the home.

While Henry gets a not so warm welcome home. Arriving home late at night, no one waited up for him.Maggie just sat there staring.

Lilly fell in love with Liam and although she was moving out to her own place, she promised to be there at all times. This was a close family. But Henrys family seemed to be the opposite. Everything had changed while he was away. Maggie was always *away with the fairies*, and his mother Eliza spent more and more time getting some retail therapy. No, Henry was sad and missed his friend Lilly who he also envied, and so he threw himself into his job (Natural science), and found what himself falling for his co worker Amanda. After a whirlwind romance, the two were engaged, and then married.

Lilly arrived to congratulate BF Henry on his engagement, to Amanda's disapproval.Had someone been whispering in her ear with lies?
But Lilly wasn't about to ruin her friends big day and so politely left. The wedding was small and uneventful.

Lilly was hurt, but her anger overrode that.

I am glad for Lilly, she seems to be doing well. I feel so sorry for Henry. Amanda is pretty though.

Thanks for the update.

Well, a fair bit has happened in the neighbourhood since the last update. So onto the recent events.
First up:
Lilly Collins
Having her own space meant Lilly could throw herself into her love of science without the constant bickering over someone hogging the computer. Though lonely at times, she rolled a want to obtain a pet, and because I like her, I allowed her to adopt Bonkers.
http://www.modyourpanties.com/hosting/77245_170617205501snapshot_265177ae_46517d78.jpg
Its love at first sight. Hes a keeper I reckon.
http://www.modyourpanties.com/hosting/77246_170617205649snapshot_265177ae_c6526125.jpg
And then, the unwelcome late night visitor paid a visit, snagging the tv and couch.
Then the unexpected happened. (Took me by suprise actually)

Lilly gets abducted. Yay.??
http://www.modyourpanties.com/hosting/77250_170617210126snapshot_265177ae_065177b0.jpg
Always sooo hungry and so, so tired lately.
http://www.modyourpanties.com/hosting/77251_170617210240snapshot_265177ae_c6525e20.jpg
Well if that isn't a sure sign of whats in store, I don't know.
Blair and Harvey Collins
Having Liam around brings much joy to the family.
http://www.modyourpanties.com/hosting/77252_170617210526snapshot_c64176bf_865182f6.jpg
Teaching him to walk, talk and potty train takes time and patience.
http://www.modyourpanties.com/hosting/77254_170617210627snapshot_c64176bf_e64eb8f2.jpg
Harvey sees everything as a photo opportunity. Even when Liam eats
http://www.modyourpanties.com/hosting/77255_170617210755snapshot_c64176bf_e65186c0.jpg
Harvey taught Liam the nursery song, and here he sings with mama.
http://www.modyourpanties.com/hosting/77256_170617210846snapshot_c64176bf_865186f6.jpg
Time to grow up to a child. Im gonna miss toddler Liam.

Liams first day for school. He looks good in his uniform.
Henry and Amanda Peterson
After the sad and untimely death of beloved Maggie, Henry couldn't stand to be in the home with his mother, so he and new bride Amanda moved out.
http://www.modyourpanties.com/hosting/77259_170617211329snapshot_66419d8f_a64fb53b.jpg
While everyone was at work, Ol'e Grim appears. Poor Maggie passes on without her nearest and dearest around.
http://www.modyourpanties.com/hosting/77260_170617211456snapshot_00000007_a64fb778.jpg
She now rests at the local cemetery.
http://www.modyourpanties.com/hosting/77258_170617211253snapshot_00000007_864fbd00.jpg
Henry and Amandas new abode. Much smaller than what shes used to however.
http://www.modyourpanties.com/hosting/77261_170617211636snapshot_66419d8f_465193c7.jpg
Though nothing a bit of retail therapy wont fix.
http://www.modyourpanties.com/hosting/77262_170617211727snapshot_66419d8f_265194db.jpg
Her attempt at making dinner. I swear Lobster isn't easy. It always gets burned. Take Outs??
http://www.modyourpanties.com/hosting/77263_170617211842snapshot_66419d8f_864fb6d5.jpg
At least Henry is in great spirits.
http://www.modyourpanties.com/hosting/77264_170617211924snapshot_66419d8f_c651967d.jpg
His cheerful mood puts a little mischief in his wife, so its play time..what better way to lighten the mood than a pillow fight.
Hope you enjoy this round. I'll try to get around to posting more sometime today, though I make no guarantee.

I like cats in RL as well as in the game. In the game, very easy to take care of. Make sure that Bonkers has something to scratch though! Also one of the Feline Birdy Sticks.

Lilly gets abducted. Yay, Well you know I love Aliens.

Liam is doing well it looks like. Toddlers are a lot of work, kids not so much. By any chance do you have a MOD to make them do their homework? Interested in one if you don't?

Henry and Amanda don't seem to be doing too badly. What do you plan to do with Henry's Mom?

Whenever you get time and motivation to do another update, is good with me.

@ lordtyger9, I to, prefer cats, they're much (in my opinion) more independent. And I love the way my kitty actually hugs me when I get home from work. He jumps on the kitchen chair, stands on his hind legs and hugs. Adorable :P
And yes please, I would love a 'do homework' MOD. I have the desk locator, but I am still having to try and get their fun level up before they will obey me and do their homework!

And now for an update

Eliza Peterson
After burning through most of her inheritance, Eliza met an older gentleman and became quite fond him. James Howard. She being a fortune sim and very charismatic, snagged him and a romance (per se) happened. It was with the help of his fortune and what was left of hers, that she could pull of renovating the family home to something more to her liking.
http://www.modyourpanties.com/hosting/77317_170619043741snapshot_0652abd7_0652b11b.jpg
Shes a smooth talker and some...James falls hard for her.
http://www.modyourpanties.com/hosting/77318_170619043927snapshot_0652abd7_0652b270.jpg
Oh, what she wouldn't do to get what she wants.
http://www.modyourpanties.com/hosting/77319_170619044021snapshot_0652abd7_c652b18c.jpg
Its done! He proposed and they married, and now she has his money...Or so she thinks...
http://www.modyourpanties.com/hosting/77320_170619044321snapshot_0652abd7_a652b2f1.jpg
Oh James isn't that stupid. Hes a family sim, and there's something he wants from her. And if she wants his fortune, Eliza had better give it.
http://www.modyourpanties.com/hosting/77321_170619044348snapshot_0652abd7_e652b3ee.jpg
You guessed it!! Mr James Howard would like a child.

http://www.modyourpanties.com/hosting/77324_170619044802snapshot_0652abd7_8652d4a7.jpg
How convenient, soon as she gives birth, the carpool turns up, and Eliza goes off to work. Wow.
http://www.modyourpanties.com/hosting/77325_170619044918snapshot_0652abd7_8652d5fa.jpg
I don't think James gave a hoot anyway. He was the dutiful parent straight away.

The Collins
Last we left off, Lilly was throwing up,and my suspicions were right. She was with child.

Ngaww, welcome to this world baby Aran. Lilly has a healthy baby boy.
Well, having a baby and a career, Lilly couldn't afford to pay for a Nanny, so it was decided to have her move back in with her parents. Harvey was already the house husband and he would care for Aran, Bonkers and Liam while the women worked. Perfect arrangement.
http://www.modyourpanties.com/hosting/77330_170619050044snapshot_c64176bf_8652fc14.jpg
He adores his grandson. Cute.

As said, heres an update on Henry and Amanda Peterson.
The house the newly wedded couple moved into was just that. A house. Expecting their first child, Henry promised his wife that once the baby was born they would move into a house that will be more fitting to make a home.

http://www.modyourpanties.com/hosting/77376_170622064838page%201.jpg
And then it was to be, that a few hours later, Amanda goes into labour and gives birth to a baby boy who was named Jimmy,
http://www.modyourpanties.com/hosting/77377_170622065105snapshot_66419d8f_864fb6d5.jpg
Henry seems to be having quite a few 'Boo Yeah' days.
http://www.modyourpanties.com/hosting/77378_170622065155snapshot_66419d8f_4656c9cf.jpg
http://www.modyourpanties.com/hosting/77381_170622070140snapshot_66419d8f_e6582d03.jpg
While Henry works, Amanda puts her own interests aside to be a mother to their son.
http://www.modyourpanties.com/hosting/77379_170622065313page.jpg
A few days later, and Jimmy's birthday arrives. Its dad who get the honours to blow the candles out. And give Jimmy his first bath.
http://www.modyourpanties.com/hosting/77380_170622065458snapshot_66419d8f_86583017.jpg
And Amanda gets to teach Jimmy to walk, talk, potty train and even the nursery rhyme. :rolleyes:

Henry and Amanda are both great parents. I like to think it's due to Henry's mother (Eliza) leaving him when he was only a child with his grandmother Maggie. I'm a little disappointed Maggie didn't live long enough to see her grandchild. I had thought about resurrecting her, but decided against it. The dead should remain as such. Dead!

A couple of times I have had names of baby boy or baby girl and then I had to rename them later. :lol:

If the name you gave the baby a name that is not appropiate for the Gender, just change the name. I have Christianlov's LastNameCopier and The Sim Blender and I use one of them to change the names of my Sims if I wish to do so.

Okay, so, this is just a very quick update. All the babies are now toddlers, and they're all boys!! Lucky I have a couple of family sims that will be willing to have more babies, and plans for another family to move into the neighbourhood. I will most move the new family in when all toddlers have become children (ugh, getting a headache already). My founding adult sims are about to become elders in about two sim weeks, give or take a day.
Nothing notable has occurred during game play, rather boring in fact, so I've a couple of ideas in my head I'm playing around with.

So, until next time
Happy Simming ;)

Sometimes I have a story line like one of my Alien Founding Families wants to have the members of the clan marry out of the clan and that mating with other Aliens is desirable though not required and that members of the clan should reproduce. General concept is that if Aliens are a significant part of Society they will be more accepted and that the clan needs members for the effort. Not exactly taking over the world though, they just want to be accepted. Hope that I am making sense here. This story line just came to me recently and it is something I made up after just playing with out a particular story in mind.

However sometimes Sims just want to be happy and I try to play toward that goal. Usually I go by what the individual sim has a want to do and I see what happens.

So my advice is to play without a particular story line in mind and most likely one will occur to you as you play. If you don't think of a story, just play and then maybe make a story line up afterward to suit a particular family after the fact. I hope that I am making sense here.

BTW I was typing all of that bit with one of my cats in my lap.

@ lordtyger9
You make complete sense to me. I indeed have taken your advice and have played without any storyline, or 'God' mode (if you know what I mean). I must admit, it has been quite relaxing to play this way. I do save the random shot in case I need it for future sharing (not too distant future of course). And I know how it can be a tad challenging typing with a feline buddy around, especially when they're so content and you try not to disturb them. Hehehe. Thank you for your advice.
