Default Wife Swap: Sim Style [Round III and Final Round Scores Posted - Winner Announced!
Contest: Other

Do you have plans to torture your Sims? Want to throw them in at the deep-end, into a house they've never been in before - with a family so unlike theirs that it may drive them insane? Then you've come to the right place... You've come to Wife Swap. You're going to want to know what it is exactly that you need - and it's very simple! You need two families, a wife for each and at least one other family member: this can be a significant other, a mother or father figure, children, sibling(s)... you get the idea! Through pictures and writing you'll get the chance to detail just what's going on during the swap, and how horrendous it might be... whether each family learns something along the way is entirely up to you.


This contest is for TS2 and TS3.
Human Sims only.
The two families can be a minimum of two Sims and a maximum of six.
Any gender is allowed, however there must be two key Sims - the ones to be swapped over.
The wives and husband can be YA to Elder.
Photoshopping will not be needed, and pose hacks can be used.
Follow the usual forum photograph rules.
Judges, please be prompt with your scores each round. If you can’t get in your scores for whatever reason, please let me know at least a day in advance so emergency judges can be contacted.

There are four ways that you can do this:

1. boolProp the wives from one family into the other via the Tombstone.
2. Create the two wives and create exact, putting one of each into both houses.
3. Have both families on the same lot, and build two houses on that lot.
4. Move out both wives, and add them to the opposite families.

You can also choose to move the Sims out, and they will keep the same relationship stats with the people that they used to live with. You can then move the wifes into the houses you're putting them in. I hope that made sense.

If it's okay, may I be an E-J?

This allows me to see into the minds of people! That's right, I can actually see what they're thinking!
So long as what they're thinking is exactly what I think they're thinking.

I'll add that suggestion, Tree4me! I hadn't thought of that one. And I will also add you as an EJ.

Does the family have to include a husband? Can I add a shot of their body along with a headshot, but make in one pic, like two? Like the headshot on one side and the body on the other side?

#9 Old 28th Jun 2009 at 4:38 AM
Yes, you can do that. And no, there doesn't have to be a husband - there just has to be someone else actually living with the "wife" figure.

I have two families that are going to get Wife Swapped!

The Thomson Family
A fun loving family with a lot to offer to the new wife that is coming. They live in Parkville, Alabama. This family started in Washington D.C. where they both grew up. They got married and had their child and decided to move to a quaint little town in the middle of nowhere.

Dan:30 years old and a website engineer.
Tiffany: 30 years old and a software engineer.
Ben: 17 years old and a senior at Parkville High School. He wants to have a large business selling software that his mother made.

The Smith Family
A large family that loves to spend more time out on the town than at home.
They have always lived in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

Fred: 35 years old. Works at an investment firm
Kate: 35 years old. Trying to pursue modeling/acting
Leah: 9 years old. Loves to have fun and get lots of toys.
Delanie: 17 years old. A senior at Ann Arbor High School. Wants to become a fashion designer.

These families feel that they will do great, but seem to be completely opposite. Can the wives learn to see eye to eye with their new family once they get there.

Well everyone, meet the families!

Here's family #1, the Hitzwells.

Living in a suburban paradise, the Hitzwells are one of the wealthiest families in the country. Recently married, these two A-Listers just moved into their new mansion. Famous for their sophisticated parties and dinners, their house is always full of life and lots and lots of lobster.

Alan Hitzwell is the owner and CEO of Hitzwell Car Industries, age 35, he is often mocked by his inferiors for his foolishness and inexperience, however, he got the company out of financial debt and back, well, back to business. Alan is quite a grouch, and a bit serious, however he does have a playful side to him. He enjoys playing tennis and is absolutely terrified of pigs.

Stella Hitzwell is Vittoria's Secret model, the leading lingerie store in Sim City, age 24, although due to her husband's distate, she rarely models now. She keeps herself entertained by hosting parties and mainly just lounging about doing nothing. She enjoys a good drink in a 5-star restaurant with her friends and occasionally goes clubbing at the local VIP clubs.

And here's family #2, the Hawkins family.

Living in the city center, the Hawkins live in a small-ish house which is usually a mess. The Hawkins family have been living in Sim City all their lives, and are coping on a tight budget. James and Katie have also been recently married, after Katie's previous failed marriage.

James Hawkins, age 29, hopes to be a rockstar someday, and currently sings and plays guitar in a local band called Go:Video. James has always been a bit of a playboy, although he is obsessed with his son Ryker and is trying is hardest to ensure his welfare, although he can't say he puts as much effort into his new stepdaughter. James lives for music, partying, and his son. He absolutely hates the 'sophisticated' life, and would never want to live it himself.

Katie has always had a life of trouble. At 27 she's never had a minute's peace ever since Jackie was born, and now she has absolutely no time to herself. Especially since James doesn't seem to make enough money, she also has to go to work as a clerk in a clothing store while her children are at school or in the daycare center. Katie used to love going to the spa, and dancing, she also used to paint and had aspired to become a lawyer.

Jaqueline, or Jackie, is a 16 year old and driving her mother insane. She loves punk rock, metal, and emo and is very into the 'scene'. Her favourite hobby is driving the preppy people in her school up the wall and sneaking out with her boyfriend. She likes her stepdad's hands off attitude, although she sometimes wishes she could still see her father.

Ryker is well, a toddler, he's 3 years old. There's not much to say about him, except the fact that he looks like a mini-James. In fact, he was about to be called James Jr, except Katie insisted otherwise. Ryker can walk, except is very lazy and doesn't like to, he prefers to be carried. He isn't potty trained, although he can talk.

Hmm, I wonder what the first week is going to be like?

The Longs are a very well off family. Alfred's first wife died soon after their daughter Eva was born, but he's found love again with Vivian.

Corporate titan Vivian genuinely loves her new husband, but she's not fond of children. She tries to avoid Eva as much as possible. Her greatest fear is to be seen as nuvoe (SP?) riche.

Alfred is a bestselling mystery author who comes from old money. Recently, he has felt torn between his wife and his daughter.

Eva herself is an intrinsically kind person who is trying to make friends with her step-mother, though it's proving difficult. She's also a piano prodigy, and something of a mooch.

The Little family consists of parents Peter and Amelia, their daughter Tanya, and twins Micheal and Andrew.

Tanya and Andrew married almost immediately after graduating high school together, and niether of them attended college. Tanya is a fighter pilot, and the family's main breadwinner. She hopes to have at least one more child.

Tanya was actually conceived on Peter and Amelia's prom night, though of course she doesn't know it. Luckily, her parents were genuinely in love and it looks like they're together for the long run. She likes to help her parents out around the house.

Peter waits tables to supplement his wife's income, but he's at least a part-time stay at home dad. He loves his kids, and wouldn't mind having a couple more. He's still a kid at heart himself.

Micheal (top) and Andrew are identical twins. Though still only toddlers, they've both already displayed signs of incredible intelligence.
