SelfSim V2 Gen 4.2

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket


Last time, we all got confused as I switched between the two gen 3 households. I haven't yet been able to make a coherent family tree, so I'll try to be less confusing this time around.

So I was experimenting with new skins. These are the @Stefan ones, which I really liked except that the darkest skin was more like dark tan and I don't think old people should have shiny skin. They're old, all their shine was used to make wrinkles :/

And some Greek gods, because they walked by and I think Athena and Dio look fantastic.

I don't like how pregnant sims can go in the pool, but not the hot tub. Is there a real-life reason for that?

The puppy turned out to be a chihuahua! Look at the colours and pattern on that thing, this litter's gonna be awesome.

After six days, Jane had Blue.

Leo was so excited he folded his arm in half and stuck his hand into his jugular. Now that's excitment!

Blue has her mother's skin and hair and her father's eyes.

Dale's turn to grow up and show me what the new skins look like on children.
Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Not bad, but why does he have such a big mouth?
Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

I had a whole queue of commands for Andrea and she went and died on me.
Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

I've never been so sad to see a Pleasantviewer die. Leo didn't die, though. I was upset about that. I wanted them to go on the same day.

Uh, Ross is a good singer. It's weird.

PUPPIES! Just two, and they don't have fun names like the last couple of sets.
Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

MAXIS, FIX THIS BABY THING WHERE THEY DON'T AGE!
PS, I made my own defaults. This is HystericalParoxysm's Idolatry of Flesh...dark.
Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

She did, though. Um, so what you all think? I think she looks like an adult.
Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Blue is a very happy toddler, always laughter and bubbles. Is Bobby here smiling or grimacing?
Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

You know who has a bad voice?
Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Jane.
Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

EEEEEEEEeeeeee It's one of the puppies!
Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

It's the other one! I have no clue which dog I want to keep. I'm kind of a sucker for the floppy-eared one.

With the bathroom door as his witness, Wain springs into teendom.
Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

He's not bad, but that gloss has to come off.
Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

:D Much better. He rolled romance and likes blondes in their undies, NOT in their ballgowns. He's screaming for me to marry him to Dagmar.
Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Blue grew up at the exact same time.
Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Her eyebrows are OUT THERE. Like, really out there.
Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

She's kinda cute, what with rocking the cowgirl look and all.

He's a romance sim, what do you expect?
Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

5 000? No problem, it's not his money.

I lost the picture I took of the papergirl with stars around her head. Sorry!

Jane distracted my by becoming chief of staff, that's my excuse.

FINALLY [Hula Zombies are modelling rensim's Circonflex Bole]
Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Note papergirl, who is still on a date with Wain. Unsurprisingly, it was only an 'ok' date.
Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Ah, Dale. I don't think anyone has high hopes for you.
Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

WTF Maxis? ONLY ONE HARDCORE PER GENERATION
Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Much, much better. Dale for heir if Blue doesn't stay cute. HEIR POLL
Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

So, Dale's LTW is to have 6 pets reach the top career level. Why not? I've got lots of animals and a couple of platinum soon-to-be-elders, there's plenty of time.

Second LTW, and now she wants to be Chief of Staff again.
Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Soooo, there's seams in Enayla's skins? I don't care, I like everything else about it and it's my new default dark.
Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

I can't imagine it's very entertaining learning cooking from a book, even with a lightbulb helmet.
Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

But she does! And it was her last skillpoint, too. I even managed to lock away the want for it.
Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

This is the first time I've seen a skunk spray a pet! Note: skunks growl like my 3.5 year old cat.

I forgot to mention Brutus! I'm running out of puppies to adopt and the strays don't walk by enough. I don't want to have to breed a large dog in. Who knows if the patch actually fixed the mother-copying error.
Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

And Brutus grew up. Happy times!
Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Plans for generation 6 of the dogs were quickly set in motion.

Now, let's jump to the household where Philippe and Kathleen are producing children with their spouses for my enjoyment.
Ivy is having her third child with her husband, gen 3 middle child Philippe.
Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

She gives birth to Joe, with all of her colouring. Do all babies have webbed hands?
Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Joe grew up and is probably a clone of his mother. Unfortunately, he has his father's pointy little chin.
Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Bob grew up. He's not as cute :/ He rolled Romance.
Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

In the meantime, Kathleen became bi. I don't understand how. I think she was getting too friendly with Aphrodite (see Greek Gods entry in the community if you're interested).

And, finally, the twins grew up.
Jeff (Fortune)

I'm having so much fun with this family. Let's never stop.

Missing something?

Duuuude... the Hula Zombies are hot. I've never really payed attention before.
What is that on the back of his neck? (You can see it better in the reflection.) Is it a tattoo?

Oh, yes, I meant to mention in the caption about his tattoo! That was the entire reason for that angle. *headslap* DURRRR
Yeah, hula zombies are way sexy. Easy to make, too. Face template 1 with very little tweaking. I have one in game and love her. Her name is Zombie.

BLUE FOR HEIR!11!1!111 I think she's cute!

Oh! That Circonflex skin looks really nice on the Hula Zombies.

:D I can extract her if you would like her. You can throw her in as a townie or something. I'd strip her of cc, though, which would only end up being her hair.

I have you to thank for the Circonflex, even if I didn't use the specific one you recommended. Thanks so much for your help on the default skins! I used a different method though, a long one, but it works. Leo's head turned from light to dark just in time for him to die (that's why there's not many pics of him in this update. Black people with white heads shouldn't exist).

Your welcome! I'm way too lazy to do the skins the long way, because I figure I'll end up changing them again at some point and I don't want to have go through all of that again LOL!

The Circconflex skins are a really nice set, altogether. I had tried those as my defaults at first, but I thought they ended up making all my sims look Asian. I ended up using a few of the set to make my custom locals in my Asian BV spot.

Oooh I'd love Blue in my game!

Blue Steele
Enjoy! Let me know of her crazy exploits.
*note, she's packaged as a teen because, well, she's a teen now. You also get her aspiration and personality, but feel free to change them as you wish.

I agree about the circonflex skins: no seams and non-barbie. I definitely wouldn't want to have to change defaults too often that way, either. That's why I was so picky with this set: I hope to keep them around a while.

Oh wow. Brutus is adorable. Also, Jeff is a cutie.

Brutus was a great surprise, but I can't help but wish he didn't have so much white. The 'founder' dog was white and I haven't been able to get away from it because my game generates white animals! I HATE WHITE. Uh, sorry :/
I laugh in real life when I see guys with that hair, but Jeff rocks it somehow. I also think he's cute and can't wait to see him as an adult when all his tattoos come in. You can have a copy of him if you like, I LOVE giving away my sims.

The reason for the pool/hot tub is because high temperatures will damage the baby inside it's mother's body. This is a real-world element, not just a Sims thing. It's just that in Sims, the game prevents the pregnant parent from getting into the hot tub at all.
hidden_kitten
Nov. 17th, 2007 03:30 pm (UTC)
Neat, I figured there was a real-world reason. Like not being able to clean the catboxes, I knew that one. Oh, Maxis, always trying for realism in the actions, but failing miserably in the eye department.

I like this legacy. I would love to know what skintone you used as default at the end. It looks like one of Oepu's old ones.

Nov. 17th, 2007 04:15 pm (UTC)
Ah, it's a tattoo tone!
http://modthesims2.com/member/showthread.php?t=201083
I geneticized it, no default, so that some sims are born with tats, like Jim and Jeff.

Nov. 17th, 2007 09:04 pm (UTC)
Unless, of course, you mean my actual defaults, which are @stefan for S!+S2, circonflex bole by rensim for S3, and Pixie night for S4.

I love how some of your pets turn out. They have some interesting looks and colorings. I would have a hard time choosing which pets to keep around.
hidden_kitten
Nov. 17th, 2007 09:04 pm (UTC)
It's very difficult to choose. The most interesting ones so far have been from the adoption pool, though, which sucks. My adoption pool is FULL of adult small dogs now.

Nov. 18th, 2007 01:10 am (UTC)
Well if you ever wanted to clean out the pool you could make a little old dog lady to adopt a lot of them. XD Ah, but that could cause the temptation to breed even more small dogs to fill your neighborhood with.
hidden_kitten
Nov. 18th, 2007 01:24 am (UTC)
XD There's no temptation for me to breed the small dogs. It would have been cats if I could have found a stray male in time. It just so happened that my neighbourhood is overflowing with small dog strays. They're all white, though :/
