I decided to go green with this generation. Practically Amish, even! There are only two electrical things that Sims need to survive: a fridge and a hot water heater (for baths).
To power these two items, I plonked a collection of solar panels on the roof of the house I built for Adirim.
(After taking this snapshot I discovered that I had botched the lot placement, and had to rotate everything 180 degrees.)
Actually I was surprised at how relatively normal the off-the-grid Sims lifestyle could be. Adirim takes a nice long bath every day.
And reads a lot.
At night, she reads by candlelight.
I gave her a makeover that I felt suited her new hippie lifestyle a little better.
Next it was time to find that special Sim to share her life. I sent her off to the bar scene. She rides a bike instead of driving a car, obviously.
This guy is suffering from a condition I call “Bouncer’s Elbow.” I mean, just look at it!
This bouncer, whose name is Raul Amador (!!), has it, too. Tragic!
She spent night after night in a series of empty bars.
This has to be the emptiest city I’ve ever seen!
Even the gym was empty.
One day her tub broke, and she hired a repairman to fix it.
As soon as the repairman showed up, Adirim had a wish to “Flirt with Chadrick Lunsford.” I’d never seen anything like it! She was severely smitten. So I invited him back for dinner.
I adore this snapshot! This is what happened when I instructed Adirim to “Put The Moves On Chadrick.”
(He’s in his boxers because he had been playing in the sprinkler.)
Speaking of the sprinkler, Adirim spends her days gardening, as every good back-to-the-land-er should.
That night I had her ask Chadrick out to one of those empty bars.
She even bought him a pretty pink drink!
They danced for a while, and then she invited him home. He’s into her, too!
Ooh, I love a man who reads!
The next day seemed like a good one for sleeping in.
I thought Adirim might be getting tired of eating hot dogs – which she can cook on the grill – thus, no electricity needed. So I ordered pizza for the two of them.
After pizza, I had her pop the question.
And he said yes!
