    Sims Sunday: Treading Water

    This week in Simming was pretty painful. For one thing, I felt like the game was on hold until some of the kids grew up (and I could make more). For another thing, it kept crashing, so I had to keep going back to the last save point and playing forward from there. It got so bad that I started saving every 12 Sim hours, at noon and midnight.

    Sims Sunday: Babies!

    A scandalous lack of playing time this week, due to the holiday. And I didn’t even think to give my Sims a Thanksgiving by having them roast a turkey!

    Here’s a shot of Denise’s eye color.

    Sims Sunday: About Face

    Drum roll please! The baby turned out to be… a horse, and a carbon copy of his father.

    He’s cute enough I guess. I decided to name him “Skeeter,” because doesn’t that seem like the name that a guy in Butters’ outfit would choose? Continue reading…
